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 Diamond of Darkhold-
Book four of the City of Ember Series; the People of Ember have now been living with the People of Sparks for a while now.  But living above ground is a lot harder than they all imagined it would be when they first emerged from below. Food is sparse, work is hard, and storms are scary and new. 
The little town of Sparks isn't doing well this winter and Doon and Lina want to do something about it, so they decide to travel back to the City of Ember where a few things were left over.  But their journey takes a turn of unexpected turns and discoveries.
~This book was ok, defiantly not my favorite.  It felt rushed and was centered more for younger ages,  but in all it was a decent read.~

Palace of Mirrors-
Cecilia has always known she was destined for more, that she is the true princess of her kingdom.  All her life she has been keeping this her secret and studying diligently for the day when she will take the throne.  The day when she is no longer in danger.
But her friend makes her question the reasoning for staying away and so she sets off to take the throne and relieve the decoy, the pretender who was there to protect the true princess... but things don't go as plan and stories are messed up.  Isn't Cecilia the true princess, she always believed she was, but now she isn't so sure.

Home is Where the Heart is-
Violet Collingsworth had escaped from her home town, hoping never to return.  But with the death of her grandmother she returns back only ten years later to the place that caused so much heart-ache.  But she never imagined that the possibility of settling down in this town could be real. 
~I felt this book was poorly written and always found myself confused over the facts.  Other than that I it was intriguing and I read it pretty fast.~
