Review: A Savior is Born by:Patti Rokus

 38915782. sx318
**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:
By arranging a few rocks together an entire story can be told. A Savior Is Born, Rocks Tell the Story of Christmas, created by Patti Rokus, is an unforgettable picture book that uses majestic rock art and simple yet powerful text to inspire wonder and awe as the miracle of Christmas unfolds across the pages. Readers will be absorbed in the nature-filled artwork that shows the birth of Jesus and the celebration of the very first Christmas in a powerful and unique way.

The cover of this book sparkles and shines with foil, embossing, and spot gloss.

My Review:
 Imagine if the only way we could tell the message or convey the message of a Savior sent directly to us was through rocks. The author, Patti Rokus has done just that through this book entitled, A Savior is Born. In it she conveys the good news with lots of pictures and very little words.

 I love the unique way the story was told and the pictures were really good and dynamic. This would make a really good coffee table book.

Review: The Beginner's Bible: Jesus Is Born by:Zondervan

The Beginner’s Bible Jesus Is Born
**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:
Popular Bible stories from the bestselling The Beginner's Bible in the proven I Can Read format for introducing young children to the joy of reading. Mary is going to have a special baby. When he's born, God's angels tell everyone the good news. But the king isn't happy at all. What will become of Baby Jesus?

My Review:
 My youngest child started reading this past year and I was very relieved. As a homeschool mother, you sometimes hold your breath until that one child you have been working with; finally takes off and begins his reading adventure. Jesus is Born is a great start to the holiday season.

 That is one huge reason why I love the "My First Reader" series of books. They take books and stories and convert them into easy readers for those that are just beginning their reading journey or have a little harder time than most.

 Jesus is Born, is the sweetest story of a little baby that came to save the world. The reason for Christmas in the first place. This story just states Biblical fact and nothing more to sway the child. It is straight forward and concise. It is also short and sweet and within a few short pages, the story is told.

 A great way for your early readers to learn more about Jesus and why Christmas even exists.

Review: Protecting Tanner Hollow by:Lynette Eason

 Protecting Tanner Hollow (Tanner Hollow, #1-4)
**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:
Four nail-biting novellas in one!

Lethal Homecoming
Nolan Tanner never got over Kallie Ainsworth's sudden, unexplained departure. Now when he comes to her rescue after an attempt on her life, all the old feelings come rushing back.

Lethal Conspiracy
When professional fundraiser Lillian Maloney sees her father's campaign manager commit murder, she goes on the run from the men he hires to kill her. A close call brings firefighter Jason Tanner to the rescue, but the killer is closing in . . .

Lethal Secrets
Someone wants Honor McBride dead. When Eli Murphy helps her change a flat tire and discovers the danger Honor is in, he longs to help--but Eli has secrets of his own that could get them all killed.

Lethal Agenda
When Detective Derek St. John rescues a woman he's met only once before--and has never been able to forget--he finds himself falling for her. But he'll have to keep Claire Montgomery alive if they're to have a future together.

My Review:
 What is better than a warm cozy fire and cup of hot chocolate and really good book to sink my teeth into? Lynette Eason has got you and me both covered in her latest, Protecting Tanner Hollow. In it, you will find a collection of four romantic suspense novellas that take place in the town Tanner Hollow. Each one more engaging than the previous. So it seems that Tanner Hollow has a lot going on and many dark secrets.

 The thing with Lynette's stories is you just dont know how everything is going to play out. So in each of these, one minute you think you know how its going to go and it goes the complete opposite direction. The author is very talented and her books are always a hit.

Review: Amish Front Porch Stories by:W. Brunstetter/J Bruntstetter/R. Brunstetter

 Amish Front Porch Stories: 18 Short Tales of Simple Faith and Wisdom
**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:
Come and sit awhile as you enjoy 18 fictional short stories of love, joy, and the peace found in Amish country.

Amish Country is known for an atmosphere of peace and quiet, perfect for front-porch sitting with a good book. Join New York Times bestselling author Wanda E. Brunstetter, her daughter-in-law, and granddaughter, as they share 18 heartwarming stories from Amish Country. These fictional short stories include journeys we can all relate to as we seek how to live led by love, joy, peace, patience, and other Fruits of the Spirit. Meet Anna, who struggles to show love to a cantankerous neighbor; Laura, who endures infertility; Nora, whose pride threatens to consume her life; and other women who walk in their faith each day.

My Review:
 A sweet collection of short stories chosen to uplift and encourage the reader. I loved the story about Nina's Struggle. Nina bared a heavy weight she never had to. It wasn't until she read a letter that her Daed left that she soon saw many things in her life differently. She was caught in the moments of life instead of questioning those around her. And when she finally learned the truth it was too late. But in the end she finally arrived at a peaceful place.

 The neat thing about this book is that there are sections in the book that are entitled by the Fruit of the Spirit, discussed in the Bible in the book of Galatians. A very neat way to separate the different stories. Beautiful stories of faith. A great read!
