#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

A Light to My Path

This book was in the perspective of  two slaves during the Civil War. 
Grady who was sold from his mother at a young age and was sold and betted on.  His life had been filled with misery and hatred for the white men and he wanted revenge.
Kitty's whole life had been filled with serving Missy Claire, that she knew no better.  She was treated better than most of the slaves, but she was still treated as an animal.  She believed that she was no better than a slave and did as her mistress asked her without compliant.
Grady was mad at God, thinking He only cared about the white men.
Kitty didn't think anything of God, because He had done nothing for her and she thought so little of herself.
Will Grady ever forgive the white men for what they had done to him?  Will he ever allow God to rule His life?
Will Kitty see that she is more than just a slave...more than just an animal in the sight of white men?  Will she see her need for God?
I really liked this book.  Even though it was hard to see how the slaves were treated, but the perspective was good and the gospel was shared pretty good, I thought!
This book was the third book in the Refiners Fire serious.  One was in the perspective of the south and the other of the north.
These books were really good!
Warning:
This book was filled with some awkward moments of intimacy. The book was in the slaves perspective and they were treated very horribly in this way.  It does not say too much or go into too much details, but it is there.
