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

Amish Books

The Healing~
This book was about a Samuel Fisher and Esther Beiler, who both are struggling with what to do next in life.
Samuel had just lost his wife and moved, with his four children to a new place.  He struggles with raising his children and moving on in life.
Esther's parents left her, so they could go help her brother who was sick.  She is now all alone, making her own decisions.
She watches Samuel kids for him and she learns to love them and soon Samuel also.  But jealousies arise and it looks like Samuel could never love her back.
Will these two ever find happiness again?

The Reckoning~
Katie Fisher had found her birth mother, left her Amish life behind, and began to live in the big city with all the things she had missed as a Plain Girl.
But could she really be happy in such a place.  Doubts and memories start to arise and Katie no longer knows what to do with her life.  She could continue to live in her mother's big house and marry a man who seemed interested in her.  Or she could go back home and marry the man whom she loved long ago.
This book was good and better than the book, The Healing, because it gave more details about what the Amish believes, and the difference of their believes than what the Bible really teaches.
