Start with Amen: How I Learned to Surrender by Keeping the End in Mind By Beth Guckenberger was released May 9th, 2017 by Thomas Nelson.

One power-packed word: amen. Millions of Christians all over the world say this word every day. Yet few realize what richness, depth, truth, and connection are packed into this sacred phrase. Throughout the centuries, Christian tradition has taught us to end prayers with amen. But the Bible is full of stories and passages where God’s people started their prayers with amen. Why? As Beth Guckenberger shows, amen is more than just a way to punctuate a conversation with the God of the Universe. Amen is a declaration of who God is and who we are in relation to him. It is a moment of submission and worship, Continue reading

cover112527-mediumFalling for the Hometown Girl by Shelli Stevens is the second book in the Marshall Ranch Series and will be released on May 2, 2017 by Tule Publishing as  an adult fiction, romance novel. I really loved reading this book! Stevens writes about Katie Marshall, a small town girl next door type who lives on and runs Marshall Ranch in Montana. While working the summer cattle ranch retreat, she meets Hunter. He is a hometown boy who moved to Seattle, WA right after high school graduation. Hunter makes it big in the tech field, owning his own copy that creates video games. He as always had a crush on Katie. So when his coworker got engaged he knew the prefect place for a bachelor party and his chance to see Katie again. This is were the fun and flirty interactions begin. This book is really well paced and easy to get lost in romance novel. I like how the writer created a setting that is very romantic and beautiful. The story evolves around both characters back stories, which some are very surprising. The ending will warm your heart. I really enjoyed reading this book and cannot wait for the third book in this series. **I received a complimentary Advanced Readers Copy in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.**

SYNOPSIS: Katie Marshall is known for her ‘girl next door’ reputation and for always playing it safe. So, when she books a bachelor party from Seattle at the Marshall Ranch, she isn’t sure what to expect until trouble strolls in–Hunter Richardson, local bad boy turned successful software tycoon…and Katie’s job gets a lot more interesting. Hunter has always struggled to find his place in Marietta. Now, somewhat reluctantly, he’s back in his hometown and not looking forward to a week on a cattle ranch… but that all changes when he sees Katie, the girl he could never forget from high school. A girl he shouldn’t want anything to do with. Soon, he realizes he wants much more from her than just a guided tour of the Montana landscape. Hunter’s plan had been to get through the week, before returning to Seattle and his million dollar gaming company. Instead, he finds himself falling for the hometown girl…
