Encouraging Fiction

The reading binge continues…I have an insatiable appetite right now for encouraging fiction, and Karen Kingsbury is meeting that need.

I completed the series, with the first, Angels Walking- A Novel .  A beautiful novel with Tyler, a baseball player, Sami, a one time girlfriend and Virginia, a precious resident at an assisted living facility.

Karen weaves the story of love, redemption, grace and forgiveness in such an beautiful way.  We are always entertaining “angels unaware”, and this author gives us a glimpse of what that looks like.

The second book of the trilogy, Chasing Sunsets, Karen Kingsbury continues with the expansion of the story of Marcus and Mary Catherine.  Both of these characters are friends of Tyler and Sami.  The angels are always on mission, and this book continues to show us the lives that the angels are needing to protect.

The third and final book, Brush of Wings, Karen continues to share the stories of each of the couples.  We also meet a young woman, Lexy, who is involved in a gang lifestyle that threatens her life, and the future that the Father has the angels protecting.

I love the way Karen allows us to peek behind the curtain at the angels. Ember, Beck, Jag and Aspyn, the angels throughout the series and in this third book,

work together on this very important mission.

Karen always makes books easy to read and hard to put down.  These three were no exceptions.

I just finished Oceans Apart…paperback   or Oceans Apart- Kindle  so I will talk about it next time.

Until then, pardon me while I start another KK book!

He is in the Waiting

I woke up at 3am and heard this song by Bethel Music……Take Courage

Are you waiting?

You might be….job interview, doctor’s appointment, lab results, meeting…

Fear of the unknown can creep in and rob us of our courage, our joy, our faith in the Father.

The Waiting can be more painful than the results.

But our GOD is there

and not just in the results

but….in the WAITING.God is in the Waiting.

Encouraging Fiction/Non Fiction

I am thinking.  Which can be problematic for me sometimes. LOL

If you are a writer, you might be a reader.  Not just a “one book at a time reader” either.books-1757734_1280

How many of you raised your hands?

I just finished five books, and yes I have been reading two at a time.  Yes, I am writing my third novel. Yes, I am trying to blog.  That is why my third novel is not done.  Another LOL!

But I decided to share these with you because I did find value in them.  I may even have to have a page on my blog/website to share more often.  I will provide links as well.

I just finished Jodi Picoult’s

Hardback: The Storyteller  

Kindle Edition:The Storyteller

Paperback: The Storyteller

Audible Trial:The Storyteller

It was a story that was woven into three stories.  I had to stay focused, but it was not hard to do. I actually took a trip and “listened” to part of it on audiobook, which was a first.  I told my son I actually crossed over to the “dark side” since he and his wife read this way all the time. However,  I ended up finishing it the old fashioned way.

Everyone reads books and gets different messages.  The book’s main focus was on the Holocaust.  The book contained different characters from different times in history with fact and fiction mixed within. In my opinion, the question of evil and whether we are all capable was woven throughout.  But the focus on grace and forgiveness were paramount in my opinion.

May be worth a read!

I just finished Karen Kingsbury’s Angels Walking Series

I will offer some info about it next time!
