Book Review: The Edge of the Divine by Sandi Patty

The Edge of the Divine
Where Possibility Meets God's Faithfulness
By Sandi Patty

From the book cover: Award-winning vocalist, speaker, and author Sandi Patty uncovers the crucial decision every woman must make to leave a life of regret and find a life of freedom and joy.

Every woman reaches an unavoidable crossroads where she either spirals into a life of shame and regret or walks proudly in the freedom of God's grace and goodness. In The Edge of the Divine, Sandi Patty takes readers to the heart of the crucial choice to cling to the hope God gives. Women discover that they can leave a life of wondering for a life of wonder. Wonder at the infinite love of God, at His inexhaustible mercy, and His refusal to let us wallow far from His blessings, hope, and grace. But first, as Sandi shows, women must walk to the edge of the divine and decide to jump.

As someone who has seen Sandi Patty speak in person I was very excited to read one of her books, unfortunately I was very disappointed. I found it very hard to get into the book as the writing seemed to be very dis-jointed and tended to wander off topic quite a bit. This book seemed more of a journal she has kept more than a book intented for others to read.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

Books, books and more books!

I am so excited, I love, love, love to read and I have found the readers paradise! While reading another friends blog I discovered that she does book reviews and gets a free copy of the book. Two of my favorite things...reading and free books. I have already been accepted by one publisher and I'm waiting to hear back from a few more.

I come from a family who loves to read so I'm turning that love of reading into something even better. Keep on the look out in the coming weeks for my first book review: The Edge of the Divine by Sandi Patty then leave some love and you may just win my copy.

Happy Reading!

Honoring Our Husbands with Our Mouth

This is a great lesson on what the Bible says in regards to how we speak about our husbands: Honoring Our Husbands with Our Mouth

Summer is here....

It's hot here. Really hot. Fry and egg on the pavement hot... well not exactly. Last week the kids and I tried that on a piece of foil. It was really fun and just a random idea for the day. I think we will try it again straight on the sidewalk next time. Not on the front porch, in front of the door AND we will tell my husbands what is in the shiny foil packet before he picks it up, lol.
