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

A few more books from The Chronicles of Narnia serious

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe:

4 children, Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy, are all staying (because of the war) in a big house, with a professor taking care of them.  The house is a very interesting house with cool and fun things to do and look at,  but the most interesting thing is a wardrobe, which take all four children to a far away land where it always snows, called Narnia.  The children have an exciting, and scary adventure helping the Narianens to defeat he White Witch.  It was a fun book to read!!!

The Horse and His Boy:

A boy Shasta lives with, who he thought, was his very cruel father, until one day a Tashbaan comes with his horse to try to buy Shasta.  Shasta finds out that the cruel fisherman he has lived with all his life, is not his father.  He finds out the horse can talk, so they both are going to Narnia.  Avravis and her talking horse (long story, read it!) meet Shasta and his talking horse and all 4 of them are going to Narnia.  With great adventure ahead of them.  A great book!!!

Prince Caspian:

The 4 children from the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, go back to Narnia after leaving it.  They are now to help Prince Caspian defeat his uncle who is taking over Narnia. An exciting great book filled with adventures.
