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

Gold Medal Murder; Nany Drew & the Hardy Boys super Mystery

Nancy Drew and her friends Bess and George, are great friends with Olympic fencer Lexi Adams.  The big Olympics are coming up and Lexi will be leaving to go to LA, in a few days.  But she has been receiving death threats, and is very nervous, so Nancy and her friends decide to go also, to protected her, but mostly to solve the mystery.

Joe and Frank Hardy are undercover spy's, and are working for the ATAC, who just gave them  a new mystery to solve.  Scott Trevorr, swimmer Olympic, has received death threat and the Hardys need to protect him. 

So.. Nancy Drew and Hardy boys end up in LA together working on the same Mystery, but can they solve it, without getting hurt?  I enjoyed this book a lot!!!


  1. That is a coincidence, I forgot to mention in my last post that in 1984 the summer Olympics were held in Los Angeles in 1984. Your mother and I participated in the "Olympics" at our elementary school in good old Los Angeles unified school district that year. I wanted a medal sooo bad. Never won one. I think maybe we should have hopped on the short bus that morning and tried out for the Special Olympics and maybe we could have had a chance. Maybe not. Good thing you have your Dad's athletic ability.

    The only Mysteries I ever had in L.A. were trying to get around on the freeways, never solved that one.

  2. Hi Alyssa, I love to hear your comments on all the books you read. keep up the good work. I love you
