#ShineBright

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

Uncle Tom's Cabin

This book was long and slow but it was filled with good detail about slavery.  It told of the horrible things people would do to their salves and though all salve owners weren't bad most of them treated their salves worse than animals. 
This book was really sad as I read how Uncle Tom was sold from his wife and young children to a new owner far away.  And how they feared they would never see each other again.
And then there was Eliza who was not able to live with her own husband because he belonged to a different master.  And then she overheard her owner say that he was going to sell her young son.  She made a desperate move and ran away.  But would she be able to get to Canada before they found her?
This book was a hard book to read but a good one because of the tales it tells...and how God worked through the salves and salve owners!
