Synopsis:
Faith in God can be exciting, daring, and fun. Love Does for Kids, the follow up to Bob Goff’s New York Times bestselling Love Does, shares some of the Goff family’s wild adventures—from holding a neighborhood parade to writing presidents from around the world. Children will laugh, dream, and be inspired to make a difference for God as they read these faith adventures from Bob and his daughter, Lindsey. 
As a little boy with a big personality and even bigger dreams, Bob Goff had lots of questions, and they didn't go away when he grew up. It wasn’t until he learned just how big and wild and wonderful God is that he began to find answers. Once Bob learned about the deep goodness of God, he began to learn about the great power God gives His kids when they live a life full of love for others. 
Kids everywhere will love Bob and Lindsey's stories about how love does. With childlike faith, enthusiasm, and great whimsy, young readers will feel instantly connected to a love that acts as much as it feels. Children will walk away with a sense of wonder at how great God is and will feel empowered to do things that will make a tangible difference in the world. 
Bob and Lindsey invite kids to get to know God better and to see the world as a place designed to be changed as we put our faith in action. In the same way that Love Does has struck such a deep chord with adults, young readers will experience God in new and thrilling ways and see that living out our faith is certainly not boring!
My Rating
I have not read Love Does as of yet myself, but I thought this was such an adorable and great read. The book itself is very well illustrated. The pictures are pretty nice. As far as the content, I enjoyed the stories that were shared within this book. Each story allowed a glimpse of Bob and Lindsey's life. I loved how children can easily connect with stories within this story. A child would enjoy hearing this. As an adult, I was able to reflect on my own life. This books also gives some questions for thought that a child could answer and even a bit of an application and view of how godly living should be. Very enjoyable read.

Go grab a copy!

Blessings,

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 general or generic, …

CSB Study Bible for Women {Bible Review}

VOTW | Isaiah 41:10 - Ever Present Help

Good morning Gems (& Gents)!

This past weekend has been insane in both a good and scary way. I experienced something frightening, but in that situation I felt a sense of peace and contentment that I'd never would have experienced before if my relationship with God wasn't where it is now. As I was thinking of a verse for this week, I came across this one from the book of Isaiah and I knew this was it:
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. Such a small, yet powerful verse. This is a command and a promise from our Father whether we are in times of despair or in seasons of gladness. Though told this to the people of Israel, this verse is still true to His children today.

Let's start off by breaking down some of the words in this verse shall we:
Fear: the Hebrew word is yare' meaning to cause to frighten (affright); to make or be afraid; dreadful.Dismaye…
