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 Death Cure~
This book is the third book in the Maze Runner series.  I will say that I did like this book more then the second book, though the first one is my favorite.  Thomas and his friends are done with W.I.C.K.E.D. using them, so they make a rash decision to run and get away.  But it isn't much better out in the real world.  The whole place is infected with a deadly virus called the Flare and Thomas isn't sure what to do with himself.  He doesn't remember much about the world because his memory was swiped before he went into the maze. 
The world isn't a good place to live and it looks like the human race will be swiped out for good or will it?



A Tale of Two Sons~
I actually really enjoyed this book.  It is a book that takes us deeper into the parable Jesus told to the Pharisees, the parable of the Prodigal Son.
I learned a lot more about this parable and why Jesus told it.  It helped me also to realize that this parable is not just a story, but something with meaning that wasn't only for the audience of Jesus when He told it, but also for us who are reading it!
