9780310763147, Brave Beauty : Finding the Fearless You, Lynn Cowell

Brave Beauty
Finding The Fearless You
By Lynn Cowell

What will my life be like? Who will I be? Whether girls put these concerns into words or struggle anxiously with these thoughts, during this season of change, girls have questions. Sometimes these questions also come with fears and they need a safe place to process these fears. From Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker and blogger, Lynn Cowell, comes Faithgirlz Brave Beauty: Finding the Fearless You. For girls 8-12, Brave Beauty brings tweens 100 courage-building moments to reflect on Scripture and find confidence in God, rather than in someone, some place, or some thing, as culture will all-too-soon tell them to. Lynn will also prepare girls to:

Overcome confidence-defeating thoughts and stand on who Jesus says she is.
Shape her self-worth on Christ and overcome the temptation base it on environmental factors.
Build a strong foundation to face the fickle and flippant opinions of others.
Find approval of herself even when she lacks the acceptance of others.
Find security by turning to Christ as she steps through the exciting, yet scary world of growing up
Formatted as theme-based mini chapters, these moments can be read as one-a-days, one-a-weeks, or at the reader’s own pace. Simple and empowering, Lynn’s voice is relatable and conversational, making it easy for girls to feel like they’re spending time with a friend. This inspirational read will be set as a gorgeously foil decorated hardcover, with beautifully formatted pages in line with the well-known and loved Faithgirlz look, and with an easy-reference index to look up any topic.

Cassandra's Review--Perfect for any age girl and even some women who could use a reminder.  This is a faith based book and is a great gift for a girl to explore as well as absorb.

The Mission Walker By Edie Littlefield Sundby Review

When Edie Sundby was diagnosed with metastatic cancer and given only three months to live, she vowed to fight. She sought out the best care that the medical community could offer, and she relied on the faith she had inherited from her cotton-farmer parents. But Edie also found healing through movement. Edie knew that if she was still walking, she was still alive.

"The Mission Walker" is both an adventure story and a reflection on the universal experience of confronting our own mortality. A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.

Edie’s story shows that the sum of a million steps is a life forever changed.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- I have personally dealt and continue to deal with cancer and even when you are hopefully fully healed there is always a chance it may come back.  I felt the power of this author's writing style and shared the depth that as a reader we crave.  I think anything is possible, but if you have been feeling down or are currently dealing with cancer, this book provides a story that will inspire.

The Gift of Heaven By Charles Stanley Review

Trustworthy answers to your questions about heaven.

The Gift of Heaven, Dr. Stanley’s first book on heaven, offers biblically based teaching and insights for anyone who has questions about God and what happens after we die.

God has traced the outlines of a lovely blueprint of heaven through His Word. Dr. Charles Stanley provides biblical insights to comfort and encouragement as he explores these questions and more:

How do I know I’ll go to heaven?

Who will be in heaven?

What is life in heaven like?

Take a moment to reflect on life beyond this world, and anticipate the greatest hope of all – the day you see the face of God welcoming you into His fullness.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review--  The author is knowledgeable about a topic most of us could not really understand.  Using the Bible to interpret things is wonderful, but I am not sure of the accuracy when someone chooses to take passages in theories.   I feel like this is an encouraging book that will help believers to find a place that will bring peace after death.
