Bible Study Review: Woman 2 Woman: The Naomi and Ruth Experience


Woman 2 Woman:  The Naomi and Ruth Experience

Author:  Deborah G. Ross
Publisher:  Xulon Elite
Pages:  168
Audience:  Women
Genre:  Bible Study

I was given the opportunity by the author, Deborah G. Ross to review this Bible study and I am so happy I had the chance to do so.  This Bible study is based on the Book of Ruth in the Bible.  This Bible study centers on the relationships; the relationship between Naomi and Ruth and their relationship and faith to God.

This Bible study is so rich in taking the themes found within the Book of Ruth.  Deborah Ross and her contributors take you through a series of themes, New Beginnings, Choosing Life, The Home, and Leaning on God.  Through these series there are topics such as Forgiveness, Marriage, and Godly Character are explored using the example of these two faithful women.  The Bible study has poignant and soul-searching questions to the reader/group of the Bible study that really allow for exploration of Scripture, God’s promises, and how we can reflect on our lives within these contexts.

I can honestly say I learned so much from this Bible study.  It was well-written and paced very well.  Deborah Ross and her contributors are gifted Bible teachers and I would recommend their Bible studies.

Happy Reading!



Note:  I received a copy of this Bible study from the author in exchange for a review.

Jeremy Camp: The Answer Album Review!!

Jeremy Camp:  The Answer Album

Jeremy Camp has outdone himself on this new album!  From the moment I put this album on I was blown away!  The first song, Word of Life is an upbeat song that speaks the truth of the living Word of God.  Each song afterwards gets even better and is very uplifting!  This album brought me and my family so much joy with its positive messages of God’s love and how in each and every circumstance of our lives God is there defending us!  Jeremy Camp has a wonderfully passionate voice that reflects faith and love. 

I recommend that this album be added to your worship library!  These songs of faith and praise would be a great addition to your worship time!

Matthew West: All In Album Review

Matthew West:  All In

From the start of Matthew West’s album, All In, you are taken on a wonderful ride of worship songs.  The title son, All In is a wonderful resounding of our devotion to God.

Matthew West sings of a God who is merciful, and loving (a wonderful reminder to have if you ask me.)  Songs such as All In and Amen will also get you bopping around with the truth of the lyrics.  Becoming Me is a touching song featuring Matthew West’s daughter; the song is a tribute to how a parent shapes the life of their child (a song I also attributed to how God shapes us as His children).  There is also a cute short impromptu conversation at the end of the album with Mr. West and his children; it will make you smile.

Thank you Mr. West for this album!  It has been a true gift to listen to! 

I recommend this album for your worship library!  It is upbeat, beautifully written and sung.  This album embodies hope and the truth of God’s love for us.

Happy Listening!

Battlefield of the Mind Bible Review

Battlefield of the Mind Bible

Author:  Joyce Meyer
Publisher:  Faith Words
Pages:  2200
Audience:  Women
Genre:  Christianity

The moment I opened this Amplified version of the Bible featuring commentary and introductions from Joyce Meyer, I loved it.  Joyce Meyer has put much thought into how to address the use of Scriptures into the battles we face in our minds.  Joyce Meyer uses language that is clear and comprehensible and addresses the topics she discusses in her book, Battlefield of the Mind.  There are featured sections such as A Prayer to Renew Your Mind and Keys to a Victorious Life interspersed between each book that make understanding the points easier.

Overall, this Bible is great to have as part of your library!

Happy Reading!

Book Review: How to Create Success

How to Create Success

Author:  Isaac John Akagu
Publisher:  Golden Age Publishers
Audience:  Adults
Genre:  Non-fiction

How to Create Success by Isaac John Akagu speaks about how to achieve success.  The author breaks down how to achieve success to a few key points:  good thinking, planning, vision, patient, and flow.  The author highlights the lessons that he learned from others.  Most notably, Mr. Akagu highlights the scriptural perspective of these points, some of which I found very insightful.

Overall, this book has a great message about success.  The message is concise and it is clearly seen that Mr. Akagu has a passion for helping others and communicating God’s Word in his writing.

Happy Reading!

CD Review - Nichole Nordeman: Every Mile Mattered

Nichole Nordeman
Every Mile Mattered album

              Nichole Nordeman’s newest album, Every Mile Mattered, is a musical treasure.  This album is filled with emotion and truth in each beautifully written word.  This album tells the journey through good and bad times and the ultimate truth of God’s never-ending love and ultimate truth that He is always here for us through each and every circumstance we face.  Nichole Nordeman’s voice reflects the truth contained in each and every word of her journey and how God has been with her throughout this life journey.    

              I enjoyed each and every song on this album.  I feel like my heart truly needed to hear the songs No Longer, Lean, and Sound of Surviving.  I found myself so moved/in tears by the newest version of Slow Down.  Thank you Ms. Nordeman for the blessing of this beautiful album!

              I recommend that everyone get a copy of this wonderful album!  It will be a wonderful addition to your worship song library! 

Happy Listening!

Book Review: Redeeming Cade

Redeeming Cade

Author:  Susan Crawford
Publisher:  Serenade Books
Pages:  185
Audience:  Women
Genre:  Fiction/Christian Romance

Redeeming Cade by Susan Crawford is a beautifully told story about Cade McGuire, a man with a checkered past who turns his life around with the help of the Lord and is the assistant director of a community mission that helps people who are homeless.  Cade is very connected to the mission and the community they serve.  However, one day Cade finds out that the mission is being threatened by a politician set on closing it down in order to build a entertainment district in the community. 

The politician is Darby Phillips, a woman who has the best of intentions in her campaign to become City Council member.  From the beginning, Cade and Darby are at odds due to the closing of the mission and their relationship takes them both on a God-ordained journey neither expected.

I enjoyed reading the story of these two characters.  Susan Crawford developed relatable characters.  Cade struggles with the shame of his past and Darby is trying to figure out her purpose.  God intervened in both their lives and illustrated to them that He will guide them through their struggles.  I think that this story is a wonderful reminder of how God meets us in the middle of our struggles and through His guidance and love leads us to freedom in Him. 

Happy Reading!
