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.

Princess Academy: Palace of Stone

This is the sequel to the Princess Academy which I read a few years ago and really loved.  I had been wanting to read this book for a while and I was just able to find it at the library.
I liked it, it was a cute and clean story.  Centered more for younger kids, but still fun and easy to read.
It is a fantasy about a girl named Miri, who comes from a small village in the mountains.  There was a time when they weren't welcome any where else, but a trading route was open to them and so were other things, such as education and wealth.  Miri and a few of her friends go to the city for the princess, Miri's best friend's marriage.  But there is much more going on then just a wedding.  Many people aren't happy with the king and the nobles for their treatment to the poor, so a war is brewing and Miri get's in the middle of it.  Will she be able to pick between her love for her best friend, the princess, or the rights of the poor people?
