Book Review: Promises to Keep by Ann Tatlock

I wanted to share a book I have just read.  It is called "Promises to keep" by Ann Tatlock. 

In Promises to Keep we meet Roz an 11 year-old girl in the 60's. Even though Roz' mother takes her family and leaves Roz' father, an alcoholic and abusive husband, Roz wants to believe that her daddy can change and they can be a happy family again.
This book is full of delightful characters including Tillie and Mara. Tillie we meet at the very beginning. Tillie is determined to end her days in the house she lived in and loved, even though it has been sold to Roz' family. Mara, Roz' new friend, is also keeping secrets and wishing to be reunited with her daddy.

I have never read a novel by Ann Tatlock before but after reading "Promises to keep" I will definitely read more.  This is one of those books I could not put down.  I loved that it was written in 11 year old Roz' point of few.

I highly recommend it to others.
I received a copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.

Book Review: Hearing God by Mark & Patti Virkler

Here is a review for the latest book I have read.

Here is how Amazon describes the book.

What does it sound like to hear from Heaven?

In this interactive journal, Dr. Mark Virkler takes you on a life-changing journey that reveals three powerful ways you can hear God’s voice and recognize how He is speaking in your life everyday.

You will:
  • Hear… Discover the four keys to hearing God’s voice and start listening to the Holy Spirit with supernatural clarity
  • Meditate… Practice the seven steps to meditating on what God is saying and watch His Word come alive to you in a fresh new way
  • Dream… Learn how God is uniquely speaking to you through your dreams
As you hear God’s voice and respond to what He is saying, you will receive direction, experience healing, and unlock creativity in your life like never before!

Here is my review of the book.
I enjoyed this book.  It is written in a way to help you look at your life and dreams through questions and keeping a log/journal.  The authors give a short example by story then offer the reader a chance to look deeper to see how they can get closer to God.

There is three sections to the book.  Section 1 - Four Keys To Hearing God's Voice
                                                     Section 2 -Meditate On God's Voice
                                                     Section 3- Hearing God Through Your Dreams 

I received this book free for my honest review from Book Club Network.
