Voices of the Faithful

Voices of the Faithful is a daily devotional written by missionaries serving around the world.  It is organized by different topics for each month and each entry is written by a different missionary.

I found this to be a great daily devotional.  The readings are thoughtful and just the right length.  I did notice that some of the writers did not include their names, I'm assuming for fear of the governments where they are serving.

Overall, I would recommend this book to someone who wants to supplement their daily devotional or someone who is short on time.  I think this book is great for someone who is missions-minded.  It will also ignite an interest in missions for those who do not know much about it.

Sun Stand Still

Sun Stand Still is a call to live with audacious faith.  Pastor and author Steven Furtick uses Joshua as an example to propel us into a new dimension of faith where we are brave enough to ask God for that which seems impossible. 
I chose this book because I thought it would be a book that helps increase my faith and moves me to a new level.  I did not get that out of this book.  While the message of this book is relevant to todays society, for me, it wasn’t as motivational as I thought it would be.  Don’t get me wrong, this book is an excellent book.

I would highly recommend it to a new believer who has questions about what faith is and how to increase it.  This book is Biblically based and is filled with wonderful examples.  However, if you have been a believer for awhile, and are looking for a deeper challenge, then I would not recommend this book for you.

Sun Stand Still is a great book to help you realize that God is calling His people to ask, seek and knock and to look for His hand in your impossible situations.

My reading experiences are taking on a whole new adventure.  I received a color Nook for Christmas.  I am so excited about it that I'm not sure I will be able to sleep tonight!!  I can't wait to download my first book and get reading.  BUT, I am going to wait until I buy a case for it.  Does anyone else have a nook? What do you think of it??

Then Sings My Soul

Then Sings My Soul by Robert Morgan is the perfect book for those who have fond memories of hymns and classic church songs.  This book contains the music sheets and lyrics along with a background story about the song.  The hymns are broken down into categories such as Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving.  The songs that are featured are church classics and reading through them brought back so many wonderful memories. It is awesome to read the lyrics of songs that have been sung by generations.  The most interesting thing is to read the background stories about the songs.  This is the perfect book to add to your home library or to give as a gift.             * Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the book review bloggers program.
