#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

~One of my new favorite books~

I just finished reading this book called the Healers Apprentice.  I really liked it.  It is one of my new favorite books!
I have been pretty busy lately that I haven't been able to read much and also because a tiny thing called 'not finding any books I found interesting'. 
But for a couple a weeks I get to take it easy and read...I hope! 
I was so excited when I got this book (I had been wanting to get it for a while, but I couldn't find it at the library so I had to buy it and thanks to birthday and Christmas money I bought it a couple days ago!)
It was perfect...a book genre that I had totally missed reading!  Romance and Fantasy...
I did try reading this book called Inkspell a sequel to Inkheart (which they made a movie of) last week, but it was so long and dragging, I couldn't' finish it.  It was also a fantasy.  So yeah, I crossed those books of my list this week! :)
So, back to The Healers Apprentice. 
It is about a girl named Rose who is the apprentice to the physician in the land, but she doesn't actually fit well in the position, because she gets queasy at the sight of blood and can't stich properly. 
Duke Wilhelm is betrothed, but he must save his betrothed from the evil Moncore before he can marry her or even see her.
Rose's and Duke Wilhelm's paths intervene and the two became friends.  But Rose is a mere peasant girl and Wilhelm a Duke who is betrothed.  Is there a way for the two of them to be together? 
This book was written by a Christian author and demonstrates the sheer truth that there is a spiritual battle going on around us and that we must lean and wait on Christ and He will direct our steps and do what is good for us.
There was romance in this book, a few passionate kisses, hugs and thoughts, but other then that it is a decent book, if I remember correctly!
