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 Mysterious Benedict Society:
Reynie, with thousands of other kids takes strange quizzes and meet strange people.  Reynie is only 1 of the 4 people who pass out of thousands: Kate, Sticky, and Constance.  Each kid has a different and unique kind of skill.  These 4 kids meet Mr. Benedict, and two other nice, but weird people.  Mr. Benedict makes these kids into top secret agent.  To stop some danger that is happening.  But this mission is very dangerous and can cost theses children their lives.  Will they be able to make it and  stop The "Whisper"?  I LIKED THIS BOOK A LOT!!!!  

EMMY and the Incredible Shrinking Rat:
Emmy use to have a "normal" life, loving parents, friends, and a nice home.  But that all changed when they become rich.  Her parents just start forgetting about her she does not have any friends and feels invisible in school and she has a mean nanny.  At school she makes a friend with a rat, who can talk.  Then one day this boy at school, Joe, strat talking to her, he also heard the rat talk.  That day everything changes and Emmy try to set thing right, and have  her loving parent again.  I enjoyed this book!!

When Calls the Heart:
Elizabeth is a lovely, unmarried school teacher, who gets sent to teach on the Canadian frontier, she has made up her mind NEVER to marry any of those frontiersman. 
Wynn (frontiersman) seeks the same thing NEVER to marry.  Will they change their mind?  I liked this book!!!!


  1. Hi Aylssa, Great job reading all those books. Miss you a lot. Love Grandma

  2. I'm trying to gauge how much you really like each book. I figure Bold capital letters and four exclamation points means it was your favorite of the three, using the term "enjoy" instead of "like" and just two exclamation points means it could be your second favorite, but then again just a generic "like" and four exclamation points on the third book... Any book with a talking rat would be my favorite. I mean come on, I thought I was interesting to talk to, but a rat... I would use Bold capital letters, "like", "enjoy", I'd even make up a word like "fantastical" or something.

    I mean come on, look at your grandmas post, I'd take a talking rat any day. Ha!

  3. Alyssa!!!! Hello there little miss reader! I love seeing all the books you read, it's so great! I hope you're doing well! I miss you!!! Amanda and I hung out a little last night and we were wishing you and Ev were here ;( Love you girlie!
