An Army Of Ordinary People

I was intrigued by the tag-line of this book, “stories of real-life men and women simply being the church.” What does it mean to simply be the church?

This book lays out how I have always believed that “church” should be. What is described within these covers is a vibrant, living, breathing, house church movement that is making an impact in local neighborhoods.

The author tells the stories of many men and women involved in the simple task of starting house churches and weaves in the biblical principles and teachings of God’s Word as she tells those stories. It is amazing to see how God is at work and how He uses everyday men and women like you and me to accomplish His purposes.

If you are looking for inspiration in your walk with Jesus Christ or you are simply looking for something more than your Sunday morning church experience, then I suggest that you check out this book.

Read a sample chapter and let me know what you think.

The Witness by Josh McDowell

“The Witness” arrived in the mail and my son whisked it away before I had a chance to even look at it. He could not put the book down. He said it was awesome. It was so difficult for him to keep his mouth shut about the details until I had a chance to read it, but he did.

It was finally my turn to read the book and I have to concur with my son. This book was riveting. The action draws you in and the carefully crafted story pulls you along until the very last page. If you like action packed suspense and drama, then this book is for you. It has been a very long time since I read anything  (like fiction) just for the pure enjoyment of the story.

The thing that had the biggest impression on me was how clearly the gospel truth was weaved through this book by the author, Josh McDowell. If this was the only introduction someone had to the Gospel, then it would be enough for them to find Jesus Christ.

I would like to invite you to read the first chapter and let me know what you think in the comments.

Divanomics By Michelle McKinney Hammond

This book intrigued me when I first saw it and I was very excited when it arrived in the mail.

Divanomics is an excellent book to be reading during these difficult financial times. Michelle offers advice, real life experience, and some excellent steps to help you tighten up your budget. I will admit that I had never heard of Michelle McKinney Hammond. This was a great introduction to her writing and I want to read more. I was excited to learn that she is the author of over 30 books.

Michelle’s personality draws you in from the very first moment and her spunky style and high energy pulls you along through her book. She speaks through personal experience and shares her heart and her faith throughout. This book was a really enjoyable read and I will admit that there were many times I would sneak off to a corner to read a chapter only to end up reading three or four. There are excellent resources and references to web resources all the way through this book. The author offers some excellent ideas for action and response at the end of each chapter to enable you to put into practice what you are learning.

I don’t think it really matters what your current financial situation is, any woman could benefit from reading this book. I highly recommend this book.
