Review: Notes From the Tilt-a-Whirl by ND Wilson

Notes From the Tilt-a-Whirl sort of fell into my lap after a friend recommended it to me and I clicked a few buttons on Amazon. (Thank you Justin and Amazon Prime *salutes*) I’ve got to say that I’m rather surprised that I hadn’t heard of this before, considering it’s exactly to my tastes but also challengedContinue reading “Review: Notes From the Tilt-a-Whirl by ND Wilson”

Summer Camp Reflections/Musings

I’ve been working on my July in Review post the last few weeks (yes, weeks – I know, I’m pathetic) and I haven’t been able to finish it. Everything about it is finished except for the last section.

Review: Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis

I knew Till We Have Faces would be good. After all, everything CS Lewis writes is pure prosaic and philosophical genius. But I didn’t anticipate the affects of its goodness. This one was one of those books where, after I finished, I sat in awe, not capable of anything more. Even two weeks after pickingContinue reading “Review: Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis”

Simply, The Tree of Life is the story of a man looking back on hisContinue reading “The Tree of Life – Reflections”

Review: The Wood’s Edge by Lori Benton

I recently made the mistake of watching both The Last of the Mohicans and The Patriot in the vicinity of a few days. Then I started Lori Benton’s wonderful book The Wood’s Edge, also set in colonial America, and now my mind is firmly entrenched in 18th century America. Living life in the 21st century is aContinue reading “Review: The Wood’s Edge by Lori Benton”

Book Review: Where We Belong by Lynn Austin

I’m a bit under the weather this week and in a lazy, sleepy mood. So with nothing else to do, I figured I’d catch up on book reviewing! One of the latest books I read was Lynn Austin’s Where We Belong. Her books have always left me thankful for Christian writers who can create unique charactersContinue reading “Book Review: Where We Belong by Lynn Austin”
