Colors of Goodbye was a remarkable read. While I have never personally been through such a loss like the author and her family, this book was very inspiring and heart wrenching all at once. September Vaudrey tells with beautiful words and imagery the story of her daughter. She is an incredible writer and her words are genuine and real, but also kind and encouraging. If you have a friend or family member going through the death of a child or family member, please get them this book. Her story is told with stark honesty but holding to the truth that God is good and He loves us. I can't recommend this book enough! I bawled my eyes out, laughed, and went away encourage by the faith of a family that experienced immense loss and still loves Jesus.

The 9 Arts of Spiritual Conversations was just the book I was looking for! The authors made the book such an easy read. It felt like you were sitting in a coffee shop talking about relational evangelism and not just reading a book about it. The 9 Arts really fills a needed gap in Christian books today. We have so much talk about evangelism, but how do you really do it? And how do you share your faith in a genuine and real way, not just handing someone a tract. If you have wanted to learn how to better share your faith in the context of relationship, please pick this book up! You won't be disappointed. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to grow in the practical development of their spiritual conversations they have with people.

I love a good memoir and Saving My Assassin was incredible! You will not be able to put down this true story of one brave woman's stand for Christ. I won't give away too much because you will want to read this for yourself, but read the story of Virginia Prodan, a lawyer from Romania, who says yes to Jesus despite strong pushback.
Saving My Assassin will inspire you and remind you of just how great a God we serve. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to be encouraged in their faith. You will not be able to put it down!

Black and White Bible, Black and Blue Wife is a very eye opening and much needed read. Ruth Tuckers shares her very heart wrenching story of abuse and cautions Christians to carefully consider what the Bible says about submission. I think it is a very needed read because abuse in Christian marriages is a very true and sad reality. I did not agree with all of her points on Complementarianism or egalitarianism but still felt the book was a fresh perspective on a very important topic.
