Above all, trust in the slow work of God. We are quite naturally impatient in everything to reach the end without delay. We should like to skip the intermediate stages. We are impatient of being on the way to something unknown, something new… Only God could say what this new spirit gradually forming within you will be. Give our Lord the benefit of believing that His hand is leading you, and accept the anxiety of feeling yourself in suspense and incomplete.

     This CD is exactly what it is called, a worship CD. The music is all geared towards glorifying God and praising Him through music with the help of the Women of Faith Worship Team.  This CD is a great addition for daily devotionals, small groups, or when you’re driving in your car. This is a great Worship Experience!
     The six women featured on this CD have amazing voices, the album is sung completely by Women; however, if you think it is lacking something because of the lack of male voices these women prove you wrong! This CD has been crafted together by its song selection. The full purpose of this CD is to rejoice in the Lord!
I love having this CD in my car, it is such a great way to start the morning, for those like me that being able to do your devotionals in the morning is not always possible (or appealing) this CD is a great way to kick start your morning! Rejoicing in a beautiful day and starting the day off right with the love of Christ!

I received a complimentary copy of this CD from BookSneeze in an exchange for a review. This review is mine and mine alone, I am expected to review content honestly.

The Chocolate Diaries:

Linamen has sculpted a book of the stories of everyday women like you and me and the ups and downs that are faced on a daily basis.  The Chocolate Diaries is full of anecdotes (and chocolate) that bring laughter and tears, occasionally at the same time. Each chapter brings little pick me ups and how everyday readers handle times of stress.

Linamen has crafted a story full of the sweet and bitter moments in life.  This book was enjoyable, reading about the lives of real people and the ways some women have learned to cope with stress and to find laughter in otherwise dreary situations.  This book is a great read, good for reading straight through or to come back to when you’re in need of a pick-me-up (don’t forget  the side of chocolate!) 

Each chapter also brings along delicious recipes for when those chocolate cravings hit.  Every chocolate lover will appreciate this book!

I received this book complimentary from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group through their reviewer exchange program.

UnPlanned DVD Blog Tour and Giveaway

UnPLANNED- The Abby Johnson Story

     UnPlanned is the story of Abby Johnson, who while in college was wandering through an on-campus volunteer fair looking for something that could interest her, with a passion and love for helping women Abby ended up at a Planned Parenthood booth where she soon started volunteering and rising up through the ranks of the organization. After 8 years of being with the organization Abby has a heart changing experience that redirects her views on abortion.
     The unPlanned DVD takes you through Abby’s story of first becoming involved with Planned Parenthood through her struggles of the protests happening outside of her office, and the struggles she faced on a personal level with family and herself.
     Abby Johnson’s story is so inspiring and uplifting, it helps us to realize that everyone has made mistakes, we have all been fooled by someone into believing something else, or by thinking that all the good that we do can outweigh the one choice that causes concern or that causes us to second guess what we believe.
Seeing how Abby has turned from Director of an Abortion Clinic to fighting for the life of the unborn inspires each of us to look into those decisions where we have avoided choosing a side and forced us to really look at who we believe we are helping and searching for all of the facts rather than just listening to claims people may make.
     This DVD is a great resource! It definitely helps to put perspective about the choices we make daily.
  “We can’t change our past. But if we dwell on it, it won’t allow our hearts and our minds to really glorify God the way that we should. Accepting God’ forgiveness is kind of an easy part of it, I think, because we know He will forgive us for anything, but being able to forgive ourselves – I think that’s harder. I’ve turned away from the wrong things I was doing, the evil things that I was participating in. I have turned back to Him, and following Him, and so even the eight years of wrong that I was participating in, He’s now blessing that for good.” –Abby Johnson

Complimentary Copy was provided by Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
