The Masterpiece by Francine Rivers–Book Review

 

To an outsider, Roman Velasco appears to have it all. He has a nice house, fame, fortune, and any woman would kill to be on his arm. When Grace Moore walks into his life as his new assistant, he immediately notices how different she is from other women. She works hard, and doesn’t appreciate his foul mouth. Roman quickly finds himself wanting to know more about this elusive woman. Grace is a God-honoring woman who is trying hard to make a life for her and her son, and trying to get over the pain and regrets of her past. Will they open up to each other enough to see that they have more in common than they realize? Will Roman see his need of Jesus before it’s too late?

 

This story was fantastic. I was drawn in from the beginning, and I loved the different spiritual lessons seen throughout the book. One specific lesson I loved, God is working a masterpiece in each one of us, and yes we may have flaws or things in our past that we regret, but God in His grace will forgive us and save us and use us for His glory despite our past. The story was beautifully written, and I loved each of the characters! There were a few twists and turns along the way, which kept you wondering how it was going to end. I highly recommend this book!

Tranquility: A Prayer and Reflection Coloring Journal–Book Review

 

 

This prayer journal was different than other coloring prayer journals I’ve seen. This particular journal has sample prayers you can read through to prompt you in your prayer life. There are pages to color or draw your own picture, along with prompts to help you deepen your walk with God.

 

insidetranquililtyI thought this was such a unique type of journal. I love coloring journals, and I feel like when I use one, I can meditate more on what I just read. This journal took that into account, and I feel like it gives you more prompts to think about what you’re learning, and it encourages you to take it slow. (Also an important factor, because you can’t rush it!) I will say, if you’re looking for a book that is a devotional, this would not be what you’re looking for. This is definitely a prayer journal with sample prayers, but not many devotionals.

A.D. The Bible Continues: The Book of Acts by David Jeremiah–Book Review

AD ACTsThe book of Acts tells the story of the early church and the apostles. It picks up after Jesus ascended into heaven. This book explains the book of Acts and the call to action that we are also called to as Christians today.

When I received this book, I thought I was going to be reading an explanation on the book of Acts. I was surprised that while it does explain it in the prologue and the epilogue of this book, it actually has the book of Acts in the middle. It takes you chapter by chapter through the book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and would recommend it to others to read as well. The only thing I didn’t like was that it wasn’t in my preferred version of the Bible. So if you only read a specific version like I do, you may want to know that up front.
