Romans Road & What Is Real Grace

The past few weeks I have been so challenged by the book of Romans.  The more I read it the more I discover just how hollow the false grace message is.  Does the cross provide grace?  Yes.  Of course it does.  But grace is so much more than covering our sin only to return to it over and over.

Why would God redeem us from sin only to have us continually returning to it?  Why would He rescue us from the pain of sin only to have us return to it?

Sin = pain, does it not?

We simply cannot claim to be Continue reading “Romans Road & What Is Real Grace”

Book Review: A Song Unheard by Roseanna M. White (Shadows Over England, Book #2)

This book was gripping from the start.

In terms of historical fiction it did not disappoint. In terms of comedy it did not disappoint… not to mention mystery, drama, and of course a love story.

Alright, you caught me. I loved this book. Amongst my favourites.

Willa’s parents abandoned her by age six, and soon after she became a part of a “family” of sorts. A group that chose to be family, a group of orphaned children, that stole as a means of survival. Except they were really good. “London’s best pickpockets”.

Willa was hired to steal a coding machine from Lukas de Wilde, a famous violinist, but unbeknownst to anybody, this machine was not a thing but Continue reading “A Song Unheard, a book review”

Happy New Year! What’s Coming Up…

Happy New Year readers!

My family and I just returned a few days ago from the warm (or was warm) Florida… now I hear it’s a bit cooler. But it can’t be nearly as bad as the -25 celsius but feels like -33 celsius weather we have here in Ontario.  It’s so cold, you walk out and you feel like you just took a huge sip of a ice cold slushy.  That’s right.  Brain freeze.  Cause you went outside.  Welcome to Canada!

I have decided that, seeing as we seem to be having a much colder than usual winter, this is a great season for me to hide away in my house with my family and write!  And read.  I’m loving this new venture of reviewing books for Bethany House.  But more than that I’m loving this new 52 week Bible reading program I’ve started.  You can down load a copy if you’d like here.  I’m pumped to read my Bible through this year.  Last year was more of a year for study of certain subjects (one being the Proverbs 31 woman).  Do you have a plan for scripture reading this year?

I have quite a few posts in the works… recipes for biscuits, maple bbq chicken, a couple of vegetarian recipes, I have new review coming your way MONDAY Continue reading “Happy New Year! What’s Coming Up…”
