Hi, I’ve been reading this awesome book called Rhinestones on my Flip-Flops by Jane Jenkins Herlong. This is a very interesting book about several different types of women in the Bible to learn good virtues and how to be humble with a little humor put in the mix.
These are a few WOW (women of wisdom) characters we look at in the book.We look at Esther and her courage to know in her heart what was the right thing to do, even though her life was at stake. Then we look at Mary and Martha and how each woman had different feelings for the priorities. We look at Sarah, Abraham’s wife and how she took matters in her hands, because felt tired and dried up. And let’s not forget Naomi and Ruth… both had many situations to over come, but kept their faith and God richly blessed them. There are more women mentioned in this book, but you get the point. Women role models that are good examples to learn by.
I have liked this book, but it hasn’t been my all time favorite. The humor was fairly good and well thought about. It always seemed to put a smile on my face. However, the book was just a so-so read for me. Sometimes I felt the topics and chapters wandered. However, that is just a matter of opinion. Lastly, I have to mention this was a complimentary copy of the book from Faith Words/Hachette Publishing company.
If you’d like to find a copy, here are a few places.
Walmart: $10.19 paperback
Amazon: $10.19 paperback
Barnes and Noble: $10.33 paperback (sample digital available)
I’ll see you again next week with my newest legal thriller read.
Today we will be talking about Joyce Meyer’s latest publishing, coming out this Tuesday, September 12, 2017. This book is called Unshakable Trust and it really makes you think about how your trust in God should really be.
This book is about 22 chapters, and I always love to take Joyce’s books a day at a time to really think about what the application was saying. She talks about all the ways we forget to trust that God is in control. She mentions how we can gain more trust in God and be stronger in our walk with him.
She goes into using great examples from her life and how God sometimes makes difficult times a necessity and that we just have to wait through the rough spots, waiting and listening for God to tell us what to do next. We have to just learn to trust on a Higher Being and not just ourselves. That God has the plan and the road in front of us; we just need to follow him.
This book is awesome. I’m about half way as I write this review and I just am enjoying the read. I can’t say more about the easy reading style that Joyce uses in her books. She really speaks to you. God has truly been a part of Joyce Meyer’s far-from-perfect life. God is working through her to reach so many individuals.
I can’t close without mentioning that I got to received this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not required to leave a review, but I wanted to make sure everyone got an opportunity to know about Joyce Meyer’s great book!
