Sex in a Broken World by Paul David Tripp {Book Review}

Title :  Sex in a Broken World Author :  Paul David Tripp Series : Standalone Age : Adult Genres : Christian, Lifestyle, Non-Fiction Publication Date : January 31, 2018 Publisher : Crossway Source : Advanced copy provided through Crossway Blogger Review Program Purchase : Amazon | Kindle | B&N | ChristianBook | LifeWay Synopsis :   We live in a deeply broken world . . . but there is hope. Sexuality is a fundamental part of what it means to be human—part of God’s beautiful design when he created all things. And yet, sex in our world today looks nothing like the way that God intended it to be. Sexual brokenness surrounds us and, in one way or another, affects us all. This sexual brokenness reveals our deep need for redemption—something quick fixes, mere behavior modification, or a set of rules can’t provide. Honest and direct yet kind and caring, this book points us to the only place we can find help for sexual brokenness—the transfo

DOI Book Club - Fervent by Priscilla Shirer

Good morning Gems! Today, I'll be sharing with you all one of the exciting things I'll be starting in March and it's a book club! I polled on Facebook and Instagram and had you all vote and the winner was a no-brainer! This is the first Book Club that I’ll be hosting ever and I am so excited. Fervent by Priscilla Shirer won hands down! We’re jumping into the topic of prayer and I’m a big person on reading and learning all that I can about prayer. I don’t know about you all, but my prayer life has its ups and downs. Now for those of you who don’t know, Priscilla Shirer is the actress from the movie War Room ( which I HIGHLY recommend ). She wrote a book for woman based off of the movie. Here’s bit of what to expect from this phenomenal book: “You have an enemy . . . and he’s dead set on destroying all you hold dear and keeping you from experiencing abundant life in Christ. What’s more, his approach to disrupting your life and discrediting your faith isn’t gene

Find Your Brave by Holly Wagner {Book Review}

Good morning Gems! Thank you for returning to the blog! Today, yet again, is another book review because I am a book nerd and really like sharing the amazing books that I get sent and/or read.
