Today's Moment of Truth Devotions to Deepen Your Faith in Christ By Lee Strobel and Mark Mittelberg Review

Why do you believe what you believe? How can you know your faith is credible?

Many Christians today struggle to answer these questions. Though you may know what you believe, the why and how behind the thought can be complex, confusing, and even mysterious.

In Today’s Moment of Truth, bestselling author Lee Strobel articulates in 180 easy-to-read devotions the reasons why Christians believe what they believe. Combining his expertise in apologetics with his journalistic approach to parsing out the details, this devotional will leave you deeply encouraged and well-informed. Topics range from scientific discoveries to theological explanations, and each devotion is followed by a brief reflection and prayer for meditation.

The time has come to walk confidently in your faith. Today’s Moment of Truth will be an invaluable tool as you grow in your understanding of and faith in Christ.

Cassandra's Review-   First you must undoubtedly have a strong faith and wanting to be a part of something more with God.  Next you should have a few minutes cleared each day and the will to learn.  Last you should read this book and spread the word, instead of just putting it back down.  The authors created a great learning and growing experience for the readers, to connect with Christianity in an easy to understand way.

Cassandra's Review- I like the thinner material as it is super easy to fold and clean after use.  I can place this down on any surface and not worry about it ripping or tearing.  I will even use this in my home for easy clean up and playtime.  I can carry it in a diaper bag or purse.  Mine was supposed to have stakes shipped as well, but they were not included so I would have to either go buy some or find other ways to hold this down in softer lawn.   I was sent a brown mat, so it is easy to see objects on it.  The only downside is because it is so thin, if you have a bigger build or are pregnant this has no cushion and feels just like what you place it on.

Rachel Laine (The Women of Merryton #3) by Jennifer Peel $100 Amazon GC or Paypal Cash GIVEAWAY

  Rachel Laine Rachel Laine (The Women of Merryton #3) by Jennifer Peel Rachel Whitney’s life changed forever when Drew, the son of her twin sister, Sydney, was placed in her arms—and there he stayed. At twenty-two, she had no idea what she was doing, but in that moment, she knew that raising Drew was what she was meant to do with her life. ​ Fiercely independent, Rachel makes her own way managing her family's insurance agency. Decidedly against introducing any men into her life, or Drew’s, she protects her heart against all romantic entanglements. But what she didn’t count on was a letter from her sister that leads a famous secret to her door eight years after her sister’s death. A secret with the same eyes as her son’s. ​ Desperate not to get the courts involved, Rachel allows Drew’s previously unknown father, Andrew Turner, into their lives, and to her surprise, little by little into her heart. But for Rachel, taking that step could open her family to a firestorm of media attention that not even Merryton can protect them from. Is love worth the risk? Or will Andrew's fame and ambition ruin their chances? amazon  add to goodreads   Praise for the Book "You nailed it!!! These books keep getting better and better each time! I looovvved it!"
