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

Goose Girl
Ani, princess of Kildenree traveled from her kingdom to Bayern, where she must marry the prince to make peace between the two kingdoms.  But on the way, her one and only friend betrays her, along with half of her trusted guards.  She escaped the close death from their hands and traveled the rest of the way by herself.  But when she gets to the kingdom her once dear friend is posing as her.  No one will believe she is the true princess so she takes a job at the palace as the goose girl, but what will become of her?  She is supposed to be marring the prince and now she is just a peasant girl.
~There was one thing in this book that I didn't appreciate. One character was telling a story abut war and how the warriors wives wanted them to look at them only...  It is only one quick page, but still.~
This is the first book of the Bayern serious and a really fun and adventures story!

River Secret
This is the third book in Bayern serious.  Not as fun and interesting as the first in my opinion, but still good and adventurous.
This book is about Razo who is a forest born and is chosen to go on an adventure to make peace with the Tiran, who are pursuing war.  It isn't looking great for the group who will be traveling up there to make peace and death is very possibly for them all.
Razo isn't the greatest soldier and it surprises him to be chosen at all to help with the quest.  But he hopes to prove himself useful on this trip, but can he do that since all his life he has been nothing but small and weak?
~I can't remember anything being too interesting in this book, there were a few relationships and gross deaths.~
