I am a Christian Women’s Life Coach helping women achieve closer intimacy with God through my private and group coaching programs for spiritual formation (spiritual growth), life purpose, weight loss and creativity (the visual arts).
Christian Woman: Are you looking for Christian coaching from a truly Christian perspective? Look no further! With my coaching, I do NOT lead you more deeply into "self". Instead I lead you to trust in and depend more on the Holy Spirit. I do this in part by incorporating prayer, biblical principles and the leading of the Holy Spirit in all aspects of my work.

Prayer Principles for Intercessory Prayer— taken from the subtitle, it aptly describes this book’s contents.
Part of this book is loosely patterned after the story of Esther…you know, the way Esther had to come before a king with a petition.
In this book the author explores the lives of twenty three different men and women whom he considers to be great for God. They were all Protestant missionaries—the subtitle to the book being, “Missionaries Who Changed the World”. Not only that, every one included is dead. I suppose that is appropriate though, since how we finish is of utmost importance.
Included are life synopsises of these Christians (not a complete list):
I have to admit I wasn’t sure where this book was going at first…but I ended up pleasantly surprised.
I appreciated the way Daniel Johnson summed up the answer to the question, “Where is God in the suffering?”. He answers it thusly: “God does not cause the tragedy and terror that stalk the earth. He allows it, He employs it for our good; but He does not cause it, nor is it His will.” (p.50)
For the presently grieving—reading this book in the throes of grief will help you to…Continue
Do you eat to work or do you work to eat? You could be doing both, but one thing is for sure, if you are able to work and you aren’t, then you shouldn’t be eating. I’m not talking about being laid off, that’s different. Besides, it’s not my idea anyway. It’s God’s.
For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that it any would not work, neither should he eat. 2 Thess. 3:10 KJV
I don’t think He meant strictly working for money either.…Continue
There are a lot of really good tips contained in this book! They even did not leave out mentioning what I consider to be the most important points (more on this below).
I did not feel the title was accurate. I do not think it will take only four days to get a better marriage. Granted, they set it up as a four day study, so, yes, you learn the information in four days…but four days to a forever marriage—I think not.
Since the tips contained within this…Continue
Since this book was originally published in 1831, the style of writing took a little getting used to. It was helpful to me, that I had already read a different book in this series previously. It wasn’t so much that the vocabulary was large or even antiquated (although some people might think that was true), it was more that the authors very frequently wrote extremely long sentences using only a semicolon to break it up. That was the hardest thing about the style of writing that I…Continue
It must be emphasized that this book is in the field of apologetics. Merely because of that fact alone I must say that it was not “entertaining” or “light”. I don’t have a lot of other books in that particular narrow field so I can’t compare it to other apologetic works so keep that in mind as you read my review.
First, what I liked about it. I liked the fact that there were many different…Continue
I love the look and feel of this hefty hardbound book. It’s solid, over 300 pages, and it is very beautifully illustrated. I couldn’t find a two-page spread that did not have a picture on it and the illustrations seem to go perfectly with the story on that page.
This would make an excellent read-aloud story book for your young children or grandchildren. It says it’s for the “whole family” but if you have readers, don’t you want them to get into…Continue
Being somewhat familiar with the author because I have attended her and her husband’s church in the past, I was pleasantly surprised by what I found inside this book. Not that I was expecting anything bad, but I was surprised to see things I had to leave the Baptist denomination in order to learn. Apparently, this author has a vibrant relationship with the living God because quite a lot of what she writes about…Continue
This is the third and final book in the Dinah Harris mystery series.The author develops the character and story lines enough to make this a stand-alone book, but it would be helpful to read the other two (Deadly Disclosures and The Shadowed Mind) beforehand in order to better understand the characters.
As with the other books in the series, Julie Cave has several subplots going on as well as the main plot. The main plot is about Dinah Harris,…Continue
