Called by Name Part 2

One thing I neglected to mention in the previous “Called by Name” post is the wordage at the end of Isaiah 43:1, where the Lord declares “I have called you by name; you are mine.”, is that the word used for “mine” is “Alpha”, the first letter of the Greek alphabet. The only other place…

Blue Ridge Sunrise

Blue Ridge Sunrise is the latest novel by Denise Hunter and is the first in the new “Blue Ridge Romance” series.  As a Georgia girl myself, I’m lovin’ these books set in my home state! While this is in its own series, I was delighted to find references to the characters from Sweetbriar Cottage and The Wishing Season….

Called By Name

Isaiah 43:1 “But now, O Jacob, listen to the LORD who created you.  O Israel, the one who formed you says, ‘Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you.  I have called you by name; you are mine.’” Have you ever felt like you and life just don’t get along? I had a day…

Just Keep Asking

“Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” Jeremiah 33:3 That has been the verse I’ve clung to and been guided by for the past year or so, but with every new challenge comes a fresh perspective on it. CALL TO ME. That’s…

The Regency Brides Collection

The Regency Brides Collection is another novella collection released from Barbor publishers, this time with a Regency theme.  I downloaded it as soon as I heard that there was a short story included by MaryLu Tyndall, as she is one of my favorite authors.  While hers and Ms. Griep’s were my favorites, the other five short…

Love Held Captive

  Love Held Captive by Shelley Shepard Gray is the third book in the Lone Star Hero’s Love Story series, and it picks up with both Major Ethan Kelly and Captain Devin Monroe’s stories, more of the prisoners during the Civil War that the previous books in the series has followed. Major Ethan Kelly is…

To Wager Her Heart

To Wager Her Heart by Tamera Alexander is the third novel in the “Belle Meade Plantation” series.  I read the second book, To Win Her Favor, but not the first.  Each work well as a stand-alone. Alexandra Jamison is the daughter of a wealthy businessman in Nashville post Civil War, and she’s picked up an…

Just Look Up

  Just Look Up by Courtney Walsh is a really cute, relevant book.  It is a stand-alone and is my first by this author; I’ve been wanting to read something of hers after seeing so many of my favorite authors gush about her writings. Lane Kelley is an interior designer who is very focused on…

With You Always

  With You Always by Jody Hedlund is the first full book in the “Orphan Train” series.  I say “first full book” because Hedlund released a prequel novella to the series, which is currently free on the Kindle platform, and is entitled “An Awakened Heart”. Elise Neumann is a German immigrant who, with her siblings,…
