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

New Blog!


So I have not wrote in a long time and the reason...because I have started another blog.  A more professional blog, I hope.  It is a book blog and other hobbies of mine, like baking and photography.  But my main focus is books, from a Christian perspective.  As I get older, it gets harder to find books that I enjoy.  I love romance, but that is not the best genre to be reading because of the way our culture thinks and lives today.  SO many times I have had to put a book down.  Sometimes I continue reading, thinking it will get better.  It's a real struggle.  SO I really wanted to help others out.  I wanted to make a site (much like the sites for movies) where people, whether young kids, teens, or adults, could go to and find a description of a book they are hoping to read, so they will know what they will be reading and if it is even worth it.  That is my goal and hope for this new blog.
Please check it out and follow or whatever you want.  But I would love some feedback!  Let me know what you think!
I have things I am still going to be fixing and be working on, but it is mostly done.  Also I write under a pen name...

I will still be doing this blog, more for personal things.  Like pictures and maybe brief descriptions of books I have read, to keep a record.  I looked back at all my post a few days ago and was so thankful for the memories.  Some of them are hard, but most bring a smile, a laugh, and a few tears.  I started this blog about 6 years ago and a lot has changed since then, but I am thankful that I can come back and look at what happened in those years.  I want to be able to do that in the years to come too!
