Book Review Monday: Touching Heaven & Giveaway

Tweet Welcome to Book Review Monday! Touching Heaven – By Dr. Chauncey Crandall It’s time again for Book Review Monday and another Giveaway!! What is book review Monday all about? I love to read! If you know me, you already know this to be true. If you don’t, well, one of my favorite things to do is read. I love it, but I don’t always feel like I have the time to do so. Being a pastor, an author, and a speaker, one of the questions I always get from people is, “What are you reading?” I suppose it’s because they want to know what I would recommend, what inspires me, or what I’m feeding on. So, upon receiving an opportunity to giveaway some books, it got me thinking about my love for reading, but I never feel like I can make the time. Then it hit me – I came up with a brilliant idea – Book Review Monday!! Or at least I think it is brilliant. Plus it gives me a reason to read more! Now, let’s get started with – – – Book review Monday! I was very excited when the  Hachette Book Group gave me an opportunity to review and giveaway a copy of Touching Heaven – A Cardiologist’s Encounter with Death and Living Proof of an Afterlife , which was just released on September 15, 2015!! What is Touching Heaven about? Just take a look at what the  Hachette Book Group has to say about it: How a doctor’s glimpses of eternity confirmed everything he believed about God, suffering, life on earth, and what happens...
Bible Journal Journey

Bible Journal Journey

Tweet It seems last few weeks, I didn’t have a clue what to write, and this week has been nothing but writing. I just finished writing my portion of our Cherished Women’s Bible Study for the month. I finally finished the rewrites on my latest book project and have one more final read through now that it has been graphically laid out before it goes to print. Can I get an AMEN?! Glory, Hallelujah!!! Our Cherished Women’s Ministry theme for this year is Awaken; and so, this month’s topic is Awaken to your Creativity. I have had the word Awaken on my brain for the last several months. As I was praying about what to write about for this week’s post, I knew I wanted to share with you about something I have just started doing. I guess you could say that I have recently been awoken to a new way to study the Bible. I know that Bible Journaling has been around for a while, and it may be hard to believe that I had never heard about it until about 3 months ago. However, it’s true. I have this new friend, and she invited my family to her home for dinner. After dinner we were visiting and continuing to get to know one another, and she started talking about art journaling. Say what? I think the look of confusion on my face was enough for her to understand, I had never heard of such a thing. So, she was trying to explain what it was like. She went on to explain how it was similar to Bible...
