Us Against the World by David & Tamela Mann {Book Review}

Title: Us Against the World

Author: David Mann & Tamela Mann

Genres: Christian Living; Parenting; Marriage

Publication Date: November 13, 2018

Publisher: Thomas Nelson

Source: Hardcover

Purchase: Hardcover | Audible | Kindle | B&N | ChristianBook | LifeWay

David and Tamela Mann have been married for 30 years, but the singers, actors, and entrepreneurs are just as, if not more than, happily in love as they were in the early days of their relationship. In their new book, the couple will relate the story of their first encounters as teenagers, the importance of communication, and how they’ve been able to keep that spark burning through all these years.  
The Mann's have delighted and inspired audiences through music, a string of plays and movies, as well as several television series—Meet the Browns, The Mann's, and Mann & Wife. They’ll share about their often hilarious and sometimes controversial interactions with each other, their blended family of five grown children and eight grandchildren, and how these relationships enrich their lives. Given their recording careers, touring, filming, and managing an outrageous family, The Mann's will share with readers the day-to-day challenges, successes, and joys that happen behind the scenes.
My Rating
As a major fan of both David and Tamela Mann since their times doing plays and movies with Tyler Perry. Both are funny, hardworking and caring people. Getting the chance to read their book about their marriage and family bought me tears and laughter. They shared much together, but they also shared their own individuals thought as well. They don't hold back. They share the ups and downs of marriage and their family.

Not only did they share inside scoops of their lives, but they made this an interactive book. As the reader, there are questions, "games," prayers and more to partake in so that it's not just a reading experience. It's intimate, real, relate-able and fun.

I recommend having a few pens, paper and highlighters on it because you will annotate this to pieces. Also, take your time and enjoy the read. You definitely don't want to just rush through this one.

CSB Study Bible for Women {Bible Review}

Good morning loves!

I'm starting a new layout when it comes to doing my Bible reviews just because they need a more in-depth post than my book reviews. I created a new way that will help me share more info about each Bible so I hope this helps you all!

Today's review is on the The Study Bible for Women in the CSB translation and I am so excited to do this review. I want to first thank B&H Publishing group for the opportunity to review this gorgeous Bible as they sent me this Bible for review. This Bible was release on April 15, 2018, so it's been out for almost a month now.

I'm going to start off by sharing with you all what it says on the B&H website:
Now available in the Christian Standard Bible (CSB) translation with revised and updated content and a fresh, new interior design, the CSB Study Bible for Women will equip you to reach deep into God’s Word. As the most comprehensive study Bible ever prepared for women and by women, the most powerful aspect of this…

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, …

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…
