Kissed by a Cowboy: an Inspy Kisses novella

Kissed by a Cowboy: an Inspy Kisses novella

Lacy Williams

I loved Kissed by a Cowboy and thoroughly enjoyed the quick read. I found the characters so easy to identify with and fell in love with them quickly. There were many things I liked about this book, one being the lack of angst. This author is new-to-me and I am excited to read more of her work. She writes so well and without profanity and sexual exploits, that you don’t miss it at all.

Melody Cox

Kissed by a Cowboy by Lacy Williams, a sweet inspirational romance

Just shy of her thirtieth birthday, Haley Carston returns to Redbud Trails, Oklahoma, to care for her dying aunt. She thinks she’s ready for this homecoming. She’s spent years escaping her perpetual shyness and being Katie Michaels’ tag-along friend, but being back in her hometown brings back a lot of old memories, especially when she is faced with the cowboy she never forgot—Katie’s older brother, Maddox.

Twelve years ago, Maddox Michaels was supposed to be somebody. He had everything. A football scholarship. A Division I team scouting him. Maybe even a chance at the pros. Now, he’s a burned-out cowboy working day and night to stay ahead of his brother’s medical bills and keep their family farm from going bankrupt. And trying to be a father-figure for his niece, Olivia.

When Haley and Olivia start spending time together, Maddox can’t help remembering those dreams that died alongside his sister. Will being with Haley open his heart to new dreams?

The Crucified Life: How To Live Out A Deeper Christian Experience

The Crucified Life: How To Live Out A Deeper Christian Experience

A. W. Tozer

I’ve read a few of Tozer’s books and this one was the best I’ve read yet. I think I highlighted 99.9% of this book on my Kindle Fire. LOL

Skip

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me; and the life which now I live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”

The apostle Paul declared in his letter to the Galatians that he had been “crucified with Christ.” But what does this mean? Is this a claim every believer can and should make? The Crucified Life is a comprehensive exploration of these questions, answered with the deep, biblical thinking for which Tozer was revered. “God is ingenious in developing crosses for His followers,” Tozer was fond of saying. At the heart of the book is a call to believers to follow Christ to the Cross and be raised to new life—a call to live and thrive in the crucified life.

Lent for Non-Lent People: 33 Things to Give up for Lent and Other Readings

Lent for Non-Lent People: 33 Things to Give up for Lent and Other Readings

Jon Swanson

I actually read “Lent for Non-Lent People” in the middle of last year. I read it because I have read other books by Jon, and enjoy his insight and writing style.

kenton l brown

This book, this journey, is for people who aren’t exactly sure why they are looking at Lent books. We just are. We’ve heard about Lent, but we aren’t Lent people. What we want is a relationship with God, and we are wondering whether “giving up something for Lent” might help.

“Lent for Non-Lent People” is a daily guide to prayer, fasting, rest and following Jesus for people who want training wheels for Lent.

There are eight chapters. The first seven are each divided into seven readings, allowing for daily readings, starting the week of Ash Wednesday and going through Easter. The final chapter provides several strategies to take Lent into the rest of the year.

Topics include Lent as an experiment in habit, Lent as finding living food, the forty day fasts of Elijah and Jesus, the conversations Jesus had with several women, having a cup of tea with Jesus, 7 lessons to learn from sleepy disciples, and the difference between routine and ritual.

Franklin (The Thomas Fleming Library)

Franklin (The Thomas Fleming Library)

Thomas Fleming

You may think you know already about a lot about Ben Franklin, so what’s the point of reading a biography on him? Maybe you already read his autobiography, so that’s enough. Think again. This book is amazing. I had no idea how much of an influence Ben Franklin had on America, England and France. He truly was as important on the negotiating side of the Revolutionary War as George Washington was on the military side. And the story of how his relationship with his son devolves and many of his other relationships with the Penn family, the Lee’s, John Adams, etc. this ia great read. Highly recommend it!

Ron Foss

New York Times bestselling historian Thomas Fleming brings his extraordinary biographical talents to bear upon Benjamin Franklin, perhaps the least understood of America’s revolutionary giants. For this reappraisal, Fleming concentrates on the mature Franklin, the man who lived nearly thirty years beyond the point where he ended his famous Autobiography. The poor boy, the miserly young printer, has become an decidedly more complex and cultured man. In scene after vivid scene, Fleming shows us how Franklin’s unique blend of faith and courage, humor and wisdom presided over the birth of the American nation.

Interwoven in this political history is an incredibly moving, almost forgotten personal drama – the conflict between Franklin and his son William, the royal governor of New Jersey, the “thorough courtier,” as Franklin called him. Year by year, we watch the two men drifting apart as the quarrel between England and America deepens – yet always reaching across the gulf with words of personal affection.

Finally comes the climactic confrontation, when a fully disillusioned Franklin returns from eleven years in England to confront the son for whom independence is a hated word. With him, Franklin brings William’s son Temple, educated in England. The bitter political quarrel soon forces father and grandfather to fight for the boy’s loyalty.

This personalization of history is Thomas Fleming’s hallmark.

Almost as revealing as the dramatization of Franklin’s battle with his son is the chronicle of Franklin’s years in England before the Revolution. We see the network of friendships he created, the deep feeling with which he and William visited the ancestral village of Ecton, the fascinating blend of emotion and reason in his crucial testimony before Parliament at the height of the Stamp Act furor in 1766.

Then we see this innate passion for England slowly fade during the next eight years as Franklin struggles to defend America from Parliament’s greedy prejudice and – another forgotten story – simultaneously to establish a fourteenth colony on the Ohio. As always, Fleming combines colorful anecdote and shrewd analysis of men and motives. And Franklin being Franklin, there is also the constant spice of humor.

We see him stopping at a country inn and emptying the chairs by the fire by booming: “Boy, get my horse a quart of oysters.” Solemnly, he informs Edward Gibbon that he would provide him with “ample materials” on the decline and fall of the British Empire. The war won, he cheerfully assures English friends that their only hope now was to dissolve Parliament for good and “send delegates to Congress.”

We see him using humor to cope with the egotism and paranoia of other Americans in Paris. Finally, we see him as mon cher papa, the friend and aspiring lover of two beautiful French women, wooing them with the wittiest essays ever written by a seventy-six-year-old suitor.

But in all the byplay, personal and political, one theme dominates: Franklin’s dedication to America – a commitment that transcended all others in his life and inspired him to dare the political lightning. It is what makes this book important reading now and in the future.

I have been trying to find this book for quite a few years and was so glad to get it. I suppose the things the heroine accomplishes in a day cannot really be done but, it is a pleasant thing to think about. It is still a book I will probably read a few more times in the years to come.

Very good. Keeps you interested with its historical/Biblical facts woven with fictional detail. Thank you, Tommy Tenney, for giving us this gem!

Shelster

Bestselling author Tommy Tenney expands the extraordinary story of Esther like no novelist has done before. Both a thriller and a Jewish woman’s memoir, Hadassah takes readers to ancient Persia (now known as Iraq), into the inner sanctum of the palace and back out into the war zones of battle and political intrigue. This gripping drama of a simple peasant girl chosen over many more qualified candidates to become Esther, Queen of Persia, captures the imagination and fires the emotions of men and women alike.

Whether modern or historic her mysteries are ones that I wish to both rush through and hate to see end. It is always a treasure to see how people cling to the Lord during the hard times and this book is no exception to placing God as the one who leads. Ms. Coble’s characters are always believable and promote the best in christian community. I would recommend this book to people and any other book written by Colleen Coble.

Ripped apart by the Civil War, the young couple must find a way to keep their secret love alive. The end of the War should mean a joyous reconciliation, but when Rafe is accused of a terrible crime, he runs away, leaving Livvie behind once again.
