At the Feet of Jesus by Joanna Weaver

I love devotionals. I love reading snippets of someone else’s life woven with Godly truth. I have several devotionals that I use for my daily reading. Some have been gifts, and some I’ve purchased.

I received Joanna Weaver’s At the Feet of Jesus free from the publisher in exchange for a review on my blog. First of all, I love the padded hardcover that gives this devotional sturdiness. Since I received the book a couple of weeks ago, I opened to the date in October and began reading. Each daily devotion begins with Scripture and ends with a suggested reading followed by a question of reflection. Joanna incorporates hard truth with gentle encouragement. Another thing I love about this devotional is it’s not dated by year, so it’s something that can be used year after. If you’re looking for a daily devotional, consider At the Feet of Jesus by Joanna Weaver.

About At the Feet of Jesus: 
 
You were made for more than serving God; you were made to know Him.

Intimacy with God-to know Him and be known by Him. It is what our hearts desperately need, but somehow life conspires to keep us busy and distracted.

For anyone who struggles when it comes to daily devotions, At the Feet of Jesus extends an irresistible invitation to set aside your duties and find the amazing peace and incredible joy that come from time alone with Him. Drawn from Joanna Weaver’s beloved Bethany trilogy, each reading in this 365-day devotional includes a Bible reading passage and reflection question. All-new material and “Going Deeper” sidebars are also woven throughout.

Discover for yourself the riches that come from spending a portion of each day alone with God. At the feet of Jesus-where true life begins!

Includes a unique One-Year Bible Reading Guide.

You Don’t Know Me by Susan May Warren
A Deep Haven Novel

Sometimes the secrets we keep to protect ourselves can be our undoing.

To all who know her, Annalise Decker is a model wife and mother. She’s a permanent member of the PTA, never misses a sporting event, and is constantly campaigning for her husband’s mayoral race.

No one knows that Annalise was once Deidre O’Reilly, a troubled young woman whose testimony put a dangerous criminal behind bars. Relocated through the Witness Security Program to the quaint harbor town of Deep Haven, Deidre received a new identity and a fresh start, which began when she fell in love with local real estate agent Nathan Decker.

Twenty years later, Annalise couldn’t be more unprepared for her past to catch up with her. When Agent Frank Harrison arrives with news that the man she testified against is out on parole and out for revenge, Annalise is forced to face the consequences of her secrets. Will she run again, or will she finally find the courage to trust those she loves most with both her past and her future?

 
MY REVIEW: I received this book from the publisher for free in exchange for my review. Whenever I pick up a Susan May Warren novel, I can expect stellar writing, characters that grip my heart and a setting that makes me want to visit. Her Deep Haven novels create such a realistic sense of community that I want to search the map until I find this charming town. I loved You Don’t Know Me. Most of Susie’s novels have unmarried heroes and heroines who find their happily ever afters together by the book’s end. The Shadow of Your Smile and You Don’t Know Me have a married couple as main characters. I love how she showed the family’s imperfections while maintaining their core values. I planned to read a few chapters, but ended up finishing the rest of the book…and staying up way past my bedtime. And I was in tears by the time I read the last word. An emotionally gripping book about lies, consequences, grace and the Truth that offers freedom. 

Susan May Warren is the RITA award-winning novelist of over thirty novels. A five-time Christy award finalist, a two-time RITA Finalist, she’s also a multi-winner of the Inspirational Readers Choice award, and the ACFW Carol Award.

A seasoned women’s events speaker, she’s a popular writing teacher at conferences around the nation and the author of the beginning writer’s workbook: From the Inside-Out: discover, create and publish the novel in you!.

Litfuse Blog Tour: The Stars Shine Bright by Sibella Giorello
Sibella Giorello’s novels are automatic reads for me. Set in exciting locales, her novels teach me something as I devour the plot. I linger over her words, marveling at the artistry in her wordsmithing. Her novels are written in first person point of view, but they read like third person. She became one of my favorite authors from the first book Raleigh Harmon novel I read. I’m quick to spread the word about her books to friends who love romantic suspense and Christian fiction. Her Raleigh Harmon series is definitely a keeper!
 
After the FBI suspends her for bending its rules, Special Agent Raleigh Harmon is looking for a chance to redeem her career and re-start her life.
 
Sent undercover to a thoroughbred horse track, Raleigh takes on a double life to find out who’s fixing the races. But when horses start dying and then her own life is threatened, Raleigh realizes something bigger—and more sinister—is ruining Emerald Meadows.
 
She’s never felt more alone.
 
Her one contact with the FBI is Special Agent Jack Stephanson, a guy who seems to jump from antagonistic to genuine friend depending on the time of day. And she can’t turn to her family for support. They’re off-limits while she’s undercover, and her mother isn’t speaking to her anyway, having been confined to a mental hospital following a psychotic breakdown. Adding insult to her isolation, Raleigh’s fiancé wants them to begin their life together—now—precisely when she’s been ordered not to be herself.
 
With just days left before the season ends, Raleigh races to stop the killing and find out who’s behind the track’s trouble, all the while trying to determine if Jack is friend or foe, and whether marrying her fiancé will make things better—or worse.
 
Raleigh is walking through the darkest night she’s faced, searching for a place where the stars shine bright.

Sibella Giorello grew up in the mountains of Alaska admiring the beauty and nature that surrounded her. She majored in geology at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts hoping to learn more about the landscape she loved back home. From there Sibella followed a winding path, much like the motorcycle ride she took across the country, which led to her true love, journalism. 
 
She found herself in Seattle writing for rock-n-roll magazine and earned a journalism degree from the University of Washington before heading south to the land of great stories.
 
In Virginia, Sibella became a features writer for the Richmond Times-Dispatch. It was there she also met her husband and would hear Jesus whispering her name at a tent revival.
 
Sibella started writing about Raleigh Harmon as a way to keep her love of story-telling alive while staying at home with her young sons. As a journalist and author, her stories have won state and national awards, including two nominations for the Pulitzer Prize. The Stones Cry Out, the first Raleigh Harmon novel, won a Christy award for debut novel in 2008. Sibella now lives in Washington state with her husband and sons.
