Just Sayin' by Carol McAdams Moore Book Review


 I gave my daughter Just Sayin' by Carol McAdams Moore for the 90 day devotions. What she gets out of this book will be lessons she will carry with her for a lifetime.
Each devotion is a 2 page spread, short scripture thought on the left page, and then for some there are more scripture recommended or questions to get her to thinking about the passage. There are ample spots for doodling, gluing and drawing, things that she loves to do anyway. I will be getting her a set of colorful pen to use in her book, the gray, black and white pages will look amazing after she adds her won personal touches to them! And it nice knowing she is thinking on God's word while having fun!
"Each of the short devos was designed for girls just like you, with relevant topics, quotes, Scriptures, plus doodles, journal prompts, lists, puzzles, quizzes, fill-in-the-blank prayers, or unique activities that explore Bible truths and ways to apply them. Just Sayin' challenges girls to follow Jesus every day. Best. Idea. Ever"

This book was provided to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest opinion.

Thanks for stopping by!

Book Review- Move On: When Mercy Meets Your Mess by Vicki Courtney

“My healing journey began when I finally granted myself permission not to be okay. Not to stay there forever, of course, but rather to acknowledge that not being okay is a perfectly normal part of the Christian journey."
 That has got to be my favorite quotation from Move On When Mercy Meets Your Mess by Vicki Courtney. Many times it is hard for us, especially women to be okay  (even embrace) with our imperfect selves.
Vicki’s transparency is refreshing and very commendable. I think too often we as Christians conduct themselves in a way that makes it hard for unbelievers to identify with us. Some times we need to let others see our struggles.
Move On showed me that I need to be real and that “sometimes I feel like I’m playing a part I’ve been cast into, but it’s no truly who I am!”
 Move On is a good personal study that would also be great in a group setting as well. The questions at the end of each chapter are very thought provoking and would lend well to meaningful discussions. This is one book I will definitely keep!
