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

Mockingjay

This book was the third book in the Hunger Games serious.
Over all I enjoyed this book, I will admit it was intense and gory, but thankfully reading about such things doesn't bother me as much as seeing it.
District 12 is gone and District 13 is still alive?  Everyone who survived from 12 goes to 13, who is now starting a rebellion against the Capital and Katniss plays a big role in overruling the Capital and President Snow.
But can Katniss trust anyone, even the ones who seemed to be on her side to destroying President Snow?  Will she be able to help the districts?  Will she be able to help and keep her loved ones alive, while she kills Snow?
Will  the Hunger Games have a happy ending to the cruel beginnings?
