Review of Oh, the Fallen by Abigail Kay Harris

Oh, the Fallen by Abigail Kay Harris

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve been wanting to read this novella for months now, and I’m so glad I finally got a chance to read it! Just from the title, I knew this story was going to be a somber one, but I still found myself guessing at what would happen. And while it was a sad read, I wasn’t left bereft of hope.

Review of It’s Called Grace by Virginia Henderson

It’s Called Grace by Virginia Henderson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 stars

This was such a sweet, relaxing book. Don’t get me wrong – I love high-stakes drama and intrigue and intensity, but sometimes it’s nice just to read something that’s more everyday life. Even though there wasn’t much action, the character development and interactions kept me turning the pages.

Two posts in one day? That’s such a rarity for me, but I had the honor of being interviewed by my good friend Grace Johnson over at her blog. You can check out the interview here! Grace is a fellow author (Held Captive, Bound and Determined, as well as several short stories), so be sure to check out her books and the rest of her blog. She’s a great interviewer, and I had so much fun answering her wonderful questions – thanks again, Grace! 🙂

Writing amidst the Busyness of Life

This is how we all write, correct?

If you’re anything like me, you probably have other things going on outside of writing. Sad, right? 😊 Just kidding. We need balance, too. We can’t just live in our happy (or sometimes, not so happy) fictional worlds forever. Be it work, school, family, church – life – it all takes up time. And sometimes, balancing writing with the rest of your life can be difficult.

Mini-Review of Spurgeon’s Sermons Vols. 1-10

Spurgeon’s Sermons Vol. 1-10 by Charles Haddon Spurgeon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I honestly don’t even know where to start on this review. Reading through all of these volumes took me around eight months, and I don’t regret it at all. The power and passion in these sermons is immense, as well as the wisdom and Biblical knowledge. While I don’t agree with everything Spurgeon said (there were a few weird lines about evolution/age of the earth, etc.), there was so much goodness that I could easily overlook a few differences. The love this man had for Christ was enormous, and just reading these sermons showed a man of God who truly loved and knew Jesus so deeply. He preached of the love of Jesus and the power of His Blood so often!

There was also stunning honesty as Spurgeon dealt with his own failures and his battles with depression. He never pulled punches in telling his congregation that Jesus is enough for everything that we could face, that Jesus saves and keeps His children completely and to the uttermost. These sermons weren’t a righteous man looking down his nose at his congregation, but rather a heartfelt, loving plea from a sinner to even the worst of sinners, because Jesus is the Savior, the loving Savior of the vilest. Spurgeon realized how vital the Gospel is, and he preached this Gospel with a desperation, like a man trying to save another from a burning building. I absolutely loved reading these sermons, and it’s evident that the Lord worked through Spurgeon mightily. To God be the glory for these wonderful sermons, and I am so thankful I had to chance to read them. I was very blessed by these sermons, and I would recommend these books to any Christian.
