Hard Times and Holy Places

by Kristin Warnen Belcher

“Trials and difficulties can, if we let them, become holy places — 
places where we can feel the power of the Atonement in our lives. 
Our struggles can be consecrated to our good and growth, 
and you and I can become more like Christ.” — Kris Belcher

When the only remaining sight she had left began to fade, Kris Belcher knew her cancer had returned. First diagnosed with bi-lateral retinoblastoma at the age of seven months, she had feared blindness since childhood.

Ironically, the treatment that had saved her life as a baby was responsible for the radiation-induced cancer that again threatened her life as an adult.

Now a wife and mother of two young sons, she faced her greatest challenge. Five major surgeries within the space of five months left her physically and emotionally devastated — and completely blind.

Yet during that horrendous time, Kris discovered moments of spiritual strengthening that became holy places in her life — places where she could feel the purifying, transforming power of Christ that enabled her to survive and to learn how to live in a world of darkness. 

Compelling, honest, and at times humorous, her story and the insights she gained will help others find hope and healing in the midst of their own trials.

Kris Belcher is one of my super heroes! 
I completely adore her so very much!
Her story is amazing and inspiring!
I highly recommend this book!

Celebrating a Christ-Centered Easter

by Emily Belle Freeman

Discover how the personal experiences of people who were closest to the Savior during the final week of His life can change the way your family celebrates Easter. Learn the meaning behind the wheat baskets, the forget knot, the red egg, and other traditions that will help Easter become a "High Holy Day" in your heart and in your home.

Celebrating a Christ-Centered Easter offers hope for an Easter filled with the Spirit of Christ as we offer our finest to Him in deepest gratitude for His sacrifice. Return to the spiritual roots of this holy celebration with this beautiful gift book that will help bring you and your family closer to Jesus Christ.

Personal stories include
Lazarus and Simon
Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus
Mary Magdalene, Mary, and Salome
Thomas and the disciples on the road to Emmaus
and of course Jesus Christ

I am always looking for ways to be more Christ-centered and Emily Freeman's books really help with that!

I loved learning about Christ's experience with Lazarus and how He can help all of us out of the darkest moments we might find ourselves in giving us "unexpected hope."

Simon the Cyrenian teaches how he was called upon to carry the cross for Christ and how we might fully understand how to help someone else carry their cross of burdens.

Finally you will read about Jesus Christ and come to know how to offer up our finest to Him who gave us His all.

Songs, scriptures, stories, and activities are given to help us build "traditions." This book will help bring your life and heart more Christ-centered.

Love at Lakewood Med

by TJ Amberson

Savannah Drake would be thrilled about starting her final year of medical school if it weren’t for one thing: she has to spend a month working in the emergency room with cold, aloof Dr. Wesley Kent as her mentor.

When her first day in the ER proves to be a humiliating disaster, Savannah is ready to swear off emergency medicine forever. 

Gradually, though, she finds that the unpredictable, emotional experience of caring for patients in the emergency room is affecting her far differently than she expected—and Dr. Kent turns out to be anything but the arrogant attending physician that she assumed him to be. 

But just when Savannah finally admits to herself that she is falling for Dr. Kent, she learns that things at the hospital are not all what they seem. Faced with a seemingly impossible choice, Savannah must decide between her future career and everything that she has come to care so much about.

This book speaks to my heart!
Not only is it a sweet romance, but it also has compassion in emergency medicine, and trying to do what is right even though it might come out all wrong. A wonderful read!

by Traci Hunter Abramson

Tia Parker always seems to fall for the wrong guy. But when she meets Evan Spence at a friend's wedding, it seems like she's finally found Mr. Right. Their spark is undeniable, but reality may extinguish any hope for a future: they are separated by thousands of miles. As the couple struggles with the pitfalls of pursuing romance long-distance, Tia is taken off guard by a new arrival in town.

Colby Farren is handsome and charming and has made it clear he's interested in Tia. Yet despite his obvious infatuation, Tia can't seem to get Evan out of her mind. Caught between the attention of two very different men, her complicated love life is soon eclipsed by much more sobering concerns. 

A break-in at her apartment is just the first in a series of bizarre events, each bringing her one step closer to a dangerous liaison. And knowing who to trust could be a matter of life and death.

I read everything from Traci Hunter Abramson!
She is the BEST! I highly recommend ALL of her books--
