I am so excited to share this book review!!  I've been following GirlDefined for a few years now and have enjoyed every book they have published and have grown and been encouraged so much by their ministry.  I signed up to be apart of their launch team for their new devotional and was so beyond excited to be chosen!  This journey has been so exciting and fun and I'm so glad I got a chance to be a part of it! I love Kristin and Bethany’s heart for the Lord.   They’re desire to put Him above all else in their lives and to share and encourage girls and young women to do the same.   The thing that first stood out to me as I began to read their Shine Bright Devotional was this line in their intro- “just keep in mind that this devotional isn’t intended to replace time in God’s word each day; it’s meant to supplement it.” I think this is so important to realize as we start each new devotional or christian book.   We are meant to read God’s word and be in daily fellowship with Him.   T

An Acceptable Time

Polly O'Keefe is staying with her grandparents the Murrys.  The Murry's live in a small town were they're only friends are Dr. Louise Colubra and her brother, Bishop Colubra, who soon become good friends with Polly.  Bishop Colubras has somehow opened a time gate into the past that only he and Polly can go into and out.  Polly's grandparents try to keep her safe, so they're always keeping in eye on her.  But one day when Polly's friend Zachary, who is deathly ill, is in town, they both go into the time gate.  But the time gate closed as they were in and they are now stuck in the past.  But thankfully Bishop Colubra is in it with them. But how will the three of them get back into their own time?  I liked this book!


  1. Sounds like the movie Back to the Future starring Michael J Fox, which came out in 1984, and revived skateboarding's popularity for the 80's. Incidentally, that is also the same year Apple came out with the Macintosh computer. Apple aired infamous superbowl commercial stating they were going to revolutionize desktop publishing, which of course they did. 1984 was an exciting time. I wish I could go back to 1984, then maybe my clothes would be in style too. (your grandma's too, sshhh) Ha!

  2. Hey Alyssa. This also sounds like a very good book to read. Love you very much, Grandma
