• Night of the Living Dead Christian

    Night of the Living Dead Christian By Matt Mikalatos Published By Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. What an entertaining read!  Just made me smile. Related links: Author Video Author Website (Matt Mikalatos) Publisher Website (Tyndale) I didn’t really know what to expect. Night of the Living Dead Christian is the first book by Mikalatos I have read. Though it took me a few chapters to get a grip on his unique style of writing, I am very glad I stuck with it.

  • Just In Case You Ever Wonder

    Just In Case You Ever Wonder By Max Lucado Published by Thomas Nelson I was so excited to see Just In Case You Ever Wonder in the list of books available for review through BookSneeze from Thomas Nelson Publishers.  I have been reading this book to my now nine-year-old boys and five-year-old daughter since they were small.  As all my children are adopted and have their own unique stories, I have enjoyed adapting the storyline to fit their specific circumstances as I read it to them.  It has always been priority to be sure my children know about God and His saving grace through His Son Jesus Christ.  Just In…
