When Sinners Say "I Do" Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage

The gospel is something we need in every area of our lives.  In marriage and in singleness.  In joy and in sorrow.  In good times and in hard times.  When life feels good and when life feels confusing.  This book showed so much of my need for Jesus and His grace. It calls us to look at our own sins and not be so easy to point out the sins of those around us.   It shows the great gravity of our sins.  We can all tend to point fingers and defend or blame our sins on others or life circumstances.  I think especially today it is so easy to do this and not truly see our sins.  "It is wrong, not because of what it does to me, or my spouse, or child, or neighbor, but because it is an act of rebellion against the infinitely holy and majestic God." -Jerry Bridges "There can be no small sins against a great God." -J.I. Packer Dave Harvey mentions in the book that with true sorrow of our "little sins", our awareness of God and His mercy grow. Be quick to see our own

The Clue of the Velvet Mask; The series of Nancy Drew

At a costume party, a weird guy starts dancing with Nancy Drew, thinking she is someone else.  He gives her a note and leaves.  The note says, "Eastport Trellis Company offers secondhand window sash on cash terms.  In case of rain every cloud has a silver lining."  What does that mean?   Later on in the evening the guy who danced with her, stole great valuables at the home which the party was located.  Nancy with help from her friends solves the mystery.  I enjoyed this book!

  1. What costume did Nancy Drew have? It sounds like she has lots of fun with her friends. There are a lot of "weird" guys in her books. Thanks Alyssa!
