Rhinestone Jesus by Kristen Welch

Sometimes its just not enough to be a Christian! We need more of Jesus in our life, not in the form of our cross pendants, bumper stickers or Jesus T-Shirts but the Jesus Who can transform the world through us. This is exactly what drove Kristen Welch, the author of the book Rhinestone Jesus, to her own world changing adventure with Jesus.

In her book, Kristen takes us through her own adventure with Jesus Christ. As she desired to do more for God, God did open ways for her to do just that and in ways she had never imagined. She walks us through this journey describing all the ups and downs, not shying away from mentioning the moments she felt like giving up. Yet in all the experiences she writes, she has an encouraging undertone. Her writing is free from all the frills and decorations, presenting a Christ centered life like it is. At the end of each chapter she has a section named "Unpinned Faith" where she encourages the reader to interact with her story in their own way. Questions that may help uncover some of the issues the reader themselves may be dealing with.

I was greatly encouraged and challenged by this book and would definitely recommend this book for those who have become callous to their life in Jesus Christ and want out of the mundane life of easy faith!

Cassie & Caleb Discover God's Wonderful Design by Susan and Richie Hunt

 This is a good book for having devotionals with kids. The devotionals are presented as a two page story, followed by questions and answers.  The devotional targets moral issues little kids may face as they grow. The stories are not fanciful but are examples of dialogue that could happen between kids and parents in a household. The authors use different scenarios for each lesson, while reiterating the lessons from the previous lessons and building on it, in a progressive manner.

I loved reading through the book. Even though this is a devotional for kids, this book is also for parents who are willing to live the walk of faith themselves and use this as a tool to guide their kids into taking their own journey with Jesus Christ.
