Book Review: A Prayer for our Country "Words to Unite and Inspire Hope"

  A Prayer for our Country, written by Senate Chaplain Barry Black and illustrated by Kim Holt.   Thank you for reading my review of this amazing little prayer book.   I find power in these words/declarations for our country who needs them.   It is clear to see that this author is a prayer warrior by the words in this book.  Every page you turn is a new powerful line that is helping Heaven come to earth! I love that this book is a fitting book to share for Memorial Day or Independence Day.   I liked to help my kids find something on the page which would represent a scripture.   For instance, "Pleasant words are a honeycomb" is written on a page and is scripture.   Another, "harsh words hurt, while kind words heal" is written in the WORD.   Overall, this book shouts a message of LOVE.   It is a great book to read over and over again!    Thank you Zonderkidz for allowing me to review a terrific book. The opinions are 100% my own and I was not paid for this review.    

Book Review: "The Silence Between Us" By Alison Gervais #BlinkYABooks

Thank you Zonderkids and Blinkya for this review opportunity.  I wasn't familiar with Blink until I reviewed this book. According to Blink's website their mission is:  Blink inspires and equips YA readers to lead lives of significance, integrity, and purpose through true stories and fiction that blend imaginative and exciting storytelling and are always uplifting and captivating.    When I started to read this book I thought it was still a part of Zondervan so I continued to wait for a faith portion to come but it did not.   I know realize that Blink is not faith based but rather clean stories for youth.   I would say since this book was still aimed for teens they did not have inappropriate relationships which was nice.  The relationship that did happen they only kissed a handful of times in the story and nothing more was mentioned or inferred for teens going to far which is nice since society tries to sell sex all the time   The story was easy to get into and most of the time
