So good.

This book starts with such a  beautiful story that any female entrepreneur who has set out to blaze her own trail will connect deeply with. You’ll love these ladies even more after you read their story.

This book is full of heart, soul, grit, adventure, DIYs, glitter, road trips, trailblazers, family, and free-spirited wisdom.

This is the anthem for those who –  in the words of Robert Frost – choose instead the The Road Less Traveled, to go ahead and blaze their own trail.

The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Living A Mighty Faith by Angus Buchan : Book Review

living-a-mighty-faith-book1

Living a Mighty Faith: A Simple Heart and a Powerful Faith is the new devotional from Bestselling Author of Faith Like Potatoes, (which was made into an amazing and encouraging motion picture) Angus Buchan.

This hardback devotional is full of the wisdom that can only be handed down by a wise farmer whose very vocation is built on trust, faith, perseverance,  and patience.

I found the devotionals to be poignant and deep with good takeaways to reflect on. The words were meaty and the stories were an insider’s look at life on a farm. I love how the devotionals point to God and use great life analogies to connect with the scripture. These devotionals lead us to an understanding of Christian character traits and the fruits of the spirit.

Living a Mighty Faith is great for families with older children – as the devotionals are short and can be read aloud each day. I recommend this book to Mothers who long for a bible study but may not have the time to read a longer book, and who want their children to learn alongside them.

 
(* I received this book free from the BookLook Bloggers program.)

{Becoming More Than a Good Bible Study Girl – Review}

Are you tired of just going through the motions of the Christian life? Do you feel a tug at your heart to live completely for God—but don’t know what the next step is? Lysa TerKeurst invites you to uncover the spiritually exciting life you long for. Fulfillment is closer than you ever thought possible.

Is Something Missing in Your Life?

Lysa TerKeurst knows what it’s like to consider God just another thing on her to-do list. For years she went through the motions of a Christian life: Go to church. Pray. Be nice.

Longing for a deeper connection between what she knew in her head and her everyday reality, she wanted to personally experience God’s presence.

Drawing from her own remarkable story of step-by-step faith, Lysa invites you to uncover the spiritually exciting life we all yearn for. With her trademark wit and spiritual wisdom, Lysa will help you :

* Learn how to make a Bible passage come alive in your own devotion time.

* Replace doubt, regret, and envy with truth, confidence, and praise.

* Stop the unhealthy cycles of striving and truly learn to love who you are and what you’ve been given.

* Discover how to have inner peace and security in any situation

* Sense God responding to your prayers

The adventure God has in store for your life just might blow you away.

***

I first heard of Lysa from the wonderful Proverbs 31 Ministry. Lysa’s book is a candid look into her life and tells how she grew into a deeper walk with God.   It was amusing, heartfelt, open and honest. I recommend it to those who want to step up their spiritual walk and stop living a life of  just “going through the motions”. You can order it here from Zondervan.
