Rich in Love: When God Rescues Messy People

Rich in Love: When God Rescues Messy People

Irene Garcia, Lissa Halls Johnson

The Garcia’s have such a beautiful story and they tell it so honestly, life can be messy, hard, and wear your down, even if you are following what you believe. It’s inspiring to hear a story where everything is not always perfect and people make mistakes and still God uses them.

One Step of Obedience Led to Thousands

Irene and Domingo Garcia began their married lives at sixteen, already expecting a baby. Their first ten years together included Domingo’s alcoholism and abuse, and Irene’s desperate prayers for answers. Then a miracle happened: Domingo pleaded for forgiveness. As God healed their marriage, Irene and Domingo adopted a little girl. And a new season began for an imperfect couple who were willing to say yes to each other and to God.

Over the past forty-five years, the Garcias have birthed, fostered, or adopted thirty-two children. Their story holds difficult endings as well as promising new beginnings. Above all, their story reminds us what can happen when ordinary people submit to God’s call.

Rich in Love is about a family cemented in hope. About a need to love the orphan. And about a God who never, ever gives up.

Irene Garcia and her husband have fostered or raised thirty-two children, many of whom have special needs. They worked in Special Ministries at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California and started the special needs ministry at Cornerstone Church in Simi Valley, California.

Lissa Halls Johnson is a best-selling author of nineteen books, including Still Growing with Kirk Cameron. She is the creator of the Brio Girls book series for teen girls.

The Economy Driven Cookbook

The Economy Driven Cookbook

Nicole Lyddy

Recipes using ingredients that most of us have in the pantry already…that’s always a plus for me. Some are unusual, like the Oatmeal Patties…. as I read through the ingredients, it was clear that they would taste great, especially for a group of hungry people.
This recipe book certainly is a helper in the budget stretching department.

Janet

I made this cookbook from years of trying to feed a family nourishing home cooked meals. Raised in a big family with a mother who could make hearty wonderful meals out of what seemed like nothing, I learned the basics. The biggest challenge to this cookbook was writing them down since most of the time I “wing it” when I cook. My family enjoyed many a meal while this cookbook came together! My mom proved you are only limited if you believe you’re limited to your ingredients (which reaches far more than in the kitchen). Once I had a family of my own, I too, had that same kind of ideals from which these recipes came. I have included one recipe from my mom, (she said I could include it). She needed a meal without meat that could feed a family of eight and that is when oatmeal patties became a family favorite, (especially served with mashed potatoes and gravy). Most of the recipes can be adapted to what you have in your cupboards so I hope you enjoy the cookbook and make memories and favorites of your own.

Jane Austen's Guide to Life: Thoughtful Lessons for the Modern Woman

Jane Austen’s Guide to Life: Thoughtful Lessons for the Modern Woman

Lori Smith

Smith’s book draws from the best of both aspects of Austen’s writing and her own life to give us “The Jane Austen Guide to Life.” The perspective is refreshing, and the writing is lively. This is the next best thing to tea with Jane herself.

Catherine Claire Larson

Jane Austen has become our patron saint of romance, our goddess of happy endings. Her name is synonymous with romantic sighs, period costumes, and the ideal of what love should be. But if she could give us advice about life and love, what would she tell us? What would she make of Match.com, of our Real Housewives, or of our obsession with finding The One?

Austen’s stories give us relationship advice that still works today, but her life offers us so much more wisdom than just that pertaining to love. In our fame-obsessed culture, it’s refreshing to think that Austen preferred to remain anonymous. Ironically, Jane Austen—master of love stories—never married and can teach us something about being single. She also endured many painful circumstances and managed them with grace and humor.

In this light biography and guide, author Lori Smith surmises about Austen’s sensible advice for twenty-first-century women—on everything from living our dreams, being a woman of substance, finding a good man, managing money, and much more.

As such an astute student of human nature, Austen can teach us an awful lot about ourselves and about what it means to live well.

Glimpses of Grace: Treasuring the Gospel in Your Home

Gloria Furman

Aileen and I both read this book and both enjoyed it a lot. We saw that Gloria uses both precision and grace as she shows that the good news, when properly understood and carefully applied, must transform the way a woman carries out the task the Lord has given her.

Tim Challies

Runny noses. Dirty diapers. Unfolded laundry. The day-to-day life of the average housewife is filled with countless tasks that can feel mundane and ordinary, causing women to wonder if they’re missing out on bigger and better things. Eager to encourage such struggling homemakers, pastor’s wife and mother of three Gloria Furman highlights the reality of God’s grace in all of life, especially those areas that often seem boring and unimportant. Filled with personal examples and anecdotes, this richly theological reflection on what it means to be a wife, mother, and homemaker challenges readers to see and cherish the gospel’s extraordinary impact on ordinary life. Glimpses of Grace will inspire a renewed gospel-cheerfulness among women faithfully serving God in and through their homes.

What a Difference a Mom Makes: The Indelible Imprint a Mom Leaves on Her Son’s Life

Dr. Kevin Leman

I am a mom of four young boys and I think I underlined almost the entire book. Seriously, so much helpful information about how to be a better mom to my boys. I am passing this on to all my friends.

FAT PANTS

Every mom wants the best for her son. She wants him to succeed in life, to be a man of character, to find a good woman, to be a great dad. But sometimes boys are hard for moms to understand. Sometimes they’re strange, annoying, and downright disgusting! Yet always they need a mother who is engaged and interested in them, because a mom is the most important person in a boy’s life.

In What a Difference a Mom Makes, New York Times bestselling author Dr. Kevin Leman uses his wit and wisdom to show Mom how to lay the groundwork that will allow her son to grow into a good man. Armed with Dr. Leman’s expert advice and insight, Mom will gain an understanding of her boy at every stage, from that very first diaper change to the moment he leaves for college. Dr. Leman shows how to discipline a boy, how to command respect, how to let him fight his own battles, how to understand his sexuality, and how to weather the changes in the mother-son relationship as he grows up. Most of all, Leman shows Mom how to lighten up and have some fun along the way with that boy who will always have her heart.

Number the Stars

Number the Stars

Lois Lowry

This book was very well written because it vividly shares the reality of life during the Holocaust while protecting young children from many of the details that might be too frightening for them. I think that every child should read this book because children need to understand that the Holocaust was real and was not just some event in history. We should never forget the tragedy it was.

A Customer

As the German troops begin their campaign to “relocate” all the Jews of Denmark, Annemarie Johansen’s family takes in Annemarie’s best friend, Ellen Rosen, and conceals her as part of the family.

Through the eyes of ten-year-old Annemarie, we watch as the Danish Resistance smuggles almost the entire Jewish population of Denmark, nearly seven thousand people, across the sea to Sweden. The heroism of an entire nation reminds us that there was pride and human decency in the world even during a time of terror and war.

A Dog's Life

A Dog’s Life

Caroline Sherman

This book put a smile of my face on the first page and the smile stayed there until the last. I handed this one to my wife and she had the same reaction. Now we are dog people, I grant you that, and dogs have been a part of our lives for over 60 years now. As a matter of fact we find it difficult to imagine life without at least one of them. (We currently have three).

D. Blankenship

From morning till night, a dog’s life is very busy. He wakes people up. He welcomes visitors. He washes dishes. He keeps humans warm. Without a dog around, how would a family get through the day? This wonderfully endearing text by debut author Caroline Sherman is matched with adorable digital artwork by Donald Wu.

Roses for Mama (Women of the West Book #3)

Roses for Mama (Women of the West Book #3)

Janette Oke

I enjoyed this sweet, heartwarming family story, set on the prairies in what appears to be the late 1800s. Angela was a bit perfect at times, but she was still a likable character, and her love for her siblings and her determination to raise them the way her mother would have was very sweet. I would recommend this book to teenage girls who enjoy stories of love and family set against a historical background. I look forward to trying more books from this author.

Rebecca Herman

She’s cared for her siblings as best she could . . . but is it enough?

Instead of the new life she and her family expected to forge out west, seventeen-year-old Angela is thrust into the role of caring for her three younger siblings after the death of their parents. With the help of her older brother, and trust in God, Angela is determined to raise the children as her mother would have wanted.

As the youngsters grow, the questions and challenges intensify. Angela feels trapped and overwhelmed. Surely no man will ever want a woman who comes with three children in tow. Is this the plan God has for her life? Will she ever find a way to balance her own dreams with the promises she made to her mama?

Path of Freedom: Quilts of Love Series

Path of Freedom: Quilts of Love Series

Jennifer Hudson Taylor

This is the third book in the Quilts of Love series that I have read and reviewed, and the first historical. The novels are all stand-alone stories by a range of authors, but all have a real or fictional quilt as a central part of the story. I think this is my favourite so far, and I will certainly keep my eyes open for more books in this series, and more novels by Jennifer Hudson Taylor.

Iola

When Quakers Flora Saferight and Bruce Millikan embark on the Underground Railroad, they
agree to put their differences aside to save the lives of a pregnant slave couple. With only her
mother’s quilt as a secret guide, the foursome follows the stitches through unknown treachery.

As they embark on their perilous journey, they hope and pray that
their path is one of promise where love sustains them, courage builds faith, and forgiveness
leads to freedom.

“Pieces of the Heart” is not the only book in the Quilts of Love series, but it is the one you should not miss. It is the one that will make you think and will make you rethink. “Pieces of the Heart” is the best book of 2012. It is a definite must read.

L. Germany

Cordelia Grace watched Bernard Howard, the love of her young life, go off to fight for our country in WWII. And she has spent the last three years creating the Pine Cone quilt that will grace their marriage bed when he comes home. Each row of triangles signifies a layer in her life, sets of memories, hopes, dreams, and prayers for her future, enough spoken words to cover them forever. Her image of their “happy-ever-after” grows proportionally as the quilt expands.

But is the man that returns from the war, the same man that she remembered? Are the dark shades of color that she had to use for the outside edges of the beloved quilt prophetic of her life to come? Can love and faith overcome all?

Crime scene cleaner and wannabe forensic investigator Gabby St. Claire knows her best friend, Sierra, isn’t guilty of killing three people in what appears to be an ecoterrorist attack. But Sierra has disappeared, her only contact a frantic phone call.

Crime scene evidence Gabby discovers while cleaning ties seemingly random murders together—and points to Sierra as the guilty party. Just what has her animal-loving friend gotten herself into?

If that’s not disturbing enough, who’s the person following Gabby? A federal agent who hopes Gabby will lead him to Sierra? Or someone with more sinister plans?

To find Sierra and prove her innocence, Gabby will have to rely on all of her training and abilities, plus the help of a man she loves and the protection of a God she’s only recently begun to believe in.

In a story full of suspense and mystery as well as romance, the characters will keep you reading. The author does an excellent job of pulling you into the story of imperfect people finding new dreams and new challenges. I loved the twists and turns of this intricate story, and believe you will, too. I’m not a typical fan of romance, and usually shun it. But Diane Adams is not the typical romance author. Her stories pull me in and never let go – which is why I usually finish them within two days. Can’t wait for the next one!
