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

April Books (That are Coming in May)

The Rise of Nine
     This book is the third book in the I am Number Four serious.  I didn't really care for these books, I did love the fantasy feel and the teens coming together to save the planet, but I did not like how they cuss (which only seems to get worse by each book) and also the disrespect some of the characters had for one another.
     Slowly the Garde (the powerful teens whose planet was destroyed) begin to find each other and come together.  Number Four and Number Nine our together and Number Six and Number Seven are trying to locate Eight.  They may be getting stronger and closer together, but their enemy, the Mogs, are also strong with their powerful leader now on earth.  The Garde must hurry and be ready to fight the threat to all humanity.
     ~Like I said there is cussing in this book and some immature relationships and kissing going on~


The Fall of Five
Ok, so I tried to read the fourth book in the Lorien Legacies ^ but it didn't go so well.  I decided to stop reading it half way through.  It wasn't worth it.   The language was getting worse in each book and I couldn't handle the immorality of some of the situations. Just wanted to give you a heads up on that one.  Since I didn't read this one, I won't read the last book in the serious either.

 


Theodore Boone: The Abduction
This book is the fourth book in the Theodore Boone serious. I read the first three books a few years ago, when we first moved down to San Diego and I just remember loving them and thinking they were so good.  It's funny how much you change in four years.  My taste in books and my knowledge in writing  has all changed and these once awesome books are now just ok, childish books.
There was nothing bad in this book, except for, in my opinion the lack of respect Theo had for adults. 
The book had some adventure and some fun and smart info in it, but it just wasn't the same as it would have been four years ago.
