Murder for the Time Being by Joanie Bruce with GIVEAWAY

Click here to purchase your copy.

About the Book:

“You’ll pay for this. I’ll get you both.”


Computer expert Lexi Wynn is frightened. Someone is after her, but she doesn’t know why. Is it because of her past or because she was thrust into a deadly bank robbery and might identify the ones responsible? Escaping a failed kidnapping attempt and not sure who to trust, she hopes her specialized skills with computers might flush out the name of the killer. When a tall, dark, and handsome stranger rams into her truck with the hearse he’s driving and puts his life in danger to save hers, can she ignore the attraction she feels for him to concentrate on the killers? Or is God the only one who can save her now?

Drew Sheffield is irritated when a cute lady stops abruptly in front of him and he plows into the back of her pickup. After their initial confrontation, flashbacks of honeysuckle and sassy green eyes linger in his thoughts. When Lexi is threatened, he steps in to help the feisty young woman, in spite of agonizing over a past relationship.

Can Lexi and Drew forget the tragedies of the past and embrace the feelings between them or will ghostly memories snub out the promise of a future together?

The Lord of the Infield Flies by Steven Reilly

The Lord of the Infield Flies will thrill readers with Coach Steve Reilly’s harrowing, challenging, and adventuresome baseball team’s trek from Connecticut to play in Maine. As a prequel to his award winning memoir, The Fat Lady Never Sings, Reilly, a high school baseball coach, narrates the true story from the beginning of his coaching career at the age of 20. In summer 1977, Reilly plans to take his high-school-age team on a weekend trip to the baseball mecca on Cape Cod to play a Massachusetts all-star team. When plans go awry, he jumps at an offer to take the players instead to the serene surroundings of southern Maine to play that state’s all-star team. Most of the team’s starters decline; their hearts had been set on “The Cape.” Determined to go through with his commitment, Reilly gathers ten players to make the four-hour trip in a cabin truck and his car on a Friday night. Will the team arrive in time to battle Maine’s best the following morning?

Just a Kiss by Denise Hunter

This is my first book by Denise Hunter. I enjoyed the plot itself.- Military hero comes home as an amputee, struggling with his inner self. After an explosion rocked his world and he lost his leg, Riley doesn't know how to cope. His tough guy persona is just an act. He moves in with best friend Paige (here I have a bit of a conflict because in my personal opinion that doesn't portray the best Christian testimony, even though they are just friends) since his family currently has some remodeling going on and there is no spare room. Riley has been Paige's best friend forever, and since she has no family of her own, he has adopted her into his. His family members have done the same.

Riley is struggling with PTSD and the emotional scars of battle. Here is where I

Mixed Feelings About This One

My children have enjoyed practically every book in this series of the Adventure of the Sea Kids. Each book has a focus and important lesson.One of their favorite things is looking for the hidden pictures on all the pages.

Interesting Take on Super Heroes

Recently my son has become enamored with the super heroes. He has been watching every movie I will allow. He also has this uncanny ability to find godly comparisons in these types of things, not limited to super heroes. Recently, I read a book about a boy whose fascination with super heroes helped him overcome struggles he faced with some disorders such as OCD, ADHD, etc..., so to be frank, this book totally caught my attention when it became available.I always find out ironic, possibly even providential, when things kind of come together. With the impeccable timing, I couldn't resist the opportunity to see what the author has to say.

He begins by giving us a little super hero comic background and history lesson, which considering my son's infatuation with super heroes was very insightful. Personally, other than an admiration for Superman and Wonder-woman growing up, I haven't had much interest in getting to know much

Great Advice for Loving that Out-of-the-Box Kid

Nathan was different and Sally knew it.

From his early childhood, Nathan was bursting with creativity 
and uncontainable energy, struggling not only with learning issues but also with anxiety and OCD. He saw the world through his own unique lens—one that often caused him to be labeled as “bad,” “troubled,” or someone in need of “fixing.”  
Bravely choosing to listen to her motherly intuition rather than the loud voices of the world, Sally dared to believe that Nathan’s differences could be part of an intentional design from a loving Creator with a plan for his life. She trusted that the things that made him different were the very things that could make him great.

Door to Freedom by Jana Kelley

It's rough and it's smooth. It's dark and it's light. It's a masterpiece. It's us. Here in Sudan. We are scared of it and drawn to it. There is an open door, and there is much opposition.


In the dusty, Islamic country of Sudan, Mia, who is raising her family in a Muslim country, has learned to boldly share her faith. Rania, the daughter of a wealthy Sudanese Arab, seeks to find the reason for her sister's sudden disappearance. Mia holds some of the answers, but both women quickly discover they must each walk through their own doors to freedom, the freedom that only comes when you trust God's sovereignty more than man-made security.
Part of New Hope Publishers' line of contemporary missional fiction, Door to Freedom, the sequel to Side by Side, opens the reader's eyes to modern-day persecution and the life of Muslims in Sudan. Based on real-life events, Door to Freedom also reveals some of the struggles that Christians face when living under Islamic law. The reader will be inspired to pray for those who are persecuted for their faith as well as for the salvation of the persecutors.

about God from studying seven Control Girls in the Bible. Whether it was Eve's desire to know instead of trust, Sarah's inability to wait for God to move, or Rebekah's controlling hand on her family's future, each of these women's stories contain warnings and lessons for us today. 

Learn how you too can lay down this burden of trying to control everything and find rest in surrendering to the One who truly is in control.

WHAT DOES GOD LOOK LIKE?

Welcome to southeast Michigan and the small town of Carlson where faith, hope, and struggle are defined by the different faces of those who live there.

An addict that sits at a bar to forget.

A mother whose five-year-old boy has leukemia.

Two doctors. An atheist haunted by his past and a brilliant young oncologist that places all her hope in the power of modern medicine.

A blind pastor whose son hasn't spoken a single word in thirty-eight years. 

But the minister sees by faith. He knows there are answers and believes that someone who cares is watching... someone with a greater purpose. Yet there is something he doesn't know... that none of them know.

In the midst of the ordinary and the devastating, there is a reason these lives will be changed forever.

Lightning is about to strike.
