Kaydie by Penny Zeller

Kaydie, Montana Skies Series #2

Penny Zeller has written another great book in Kaydie, the second book in the Montana Skies series.  For my review on the first book in the series is here: http://bodaciousbookworms.blogspot.com/2011/03/mckenzie-by-penny-zeller.html

Kaydie is about Mckenzie's sister.  Kaydie has been hurt and neglectected by her dead husband.  He is now gone, but has left behind a lot of pain and a  sweet baby growing inside of Kaydie.  As Kaydie prepares for the arrival of her baby she learns how to trust God and how to trust herself to make the right decision when it comes to trusting another man.
Jonah Disckenson is a man with a hurtful childhood.  His mother abandoned him with his drunken father when he was a little boy.  He does not have anything against marriage but does not think it is for him.  As he helps Kaydie with getting ready for her baby, he grows closer to Kaydie.  But can he trust another woman not to abandon him like his mother did?  He also needs to learn to trust God.

Check out Penny's website here:

Jane Kirkpatrick

Jane Kirkpatrick had a Mother's Day contest where we were supposed to write about our mother. I only had like five minutes to write it before I went out of town. Boy was I surprised I won Runner's Up. If you want to get to know me a little better through my mother's story, go here:

I had an amazing mother!

Happy Mother's Day!

The Damascus Way by Davis Bunn and Janette Oke

Photo of The Damascus Way (Acts of Faith Series, Book 3)
What a great book!  I was supposed to have written this review weeks ago, but I was suffering from terrible sinus headaches and have not written any reviews in a while!  Then I was out of town at camp meeting last week!  I have several books to tell you about! 
The Damascus Way is the the finale to the best-selling Acts of Faith trilogy co-authored by Davis Bunn and Janette Oke.
The first book is The Centurion's Wife, the review is here: http://bodaciousbookworms.blogspot.com/2010/07/centurions-wife-by-janette-oke-and.html
The second book is The Hidden Flame, the review is here:  http://bodaciousbookworms.blogspot.com/2010/08/hidden-flame-by-davis-bunn-and-janette.html
I was so excited to read the third book! 
The Damascus Way is about a young rich girl named Julia.  She has everything money can buy, a mother and father who loves her, but something is missing.  They don't have any friends and company never comes over.  She does not understand why until a terrible secret is revealed to her.  The only one she can turn to is Jesus, but it is dangerous to be a follower of The Way.
Abigail's brother, Jacob, is now a young man.  He is a believer, but does not where he belongs in the world.  He feels that he is treated as a child still by his guardian.  Should he continue as a caravan guard, or does God have another way for him to travel?
The book also tells about the Apostle Paul before he was saved and how terrified the Christians were of him.  The title of the book comes from Paul's salvation on the Road to Damascus.
The book is very well written, at one point there is a terrible sand storm, and I could just picture myself there.  I live in TX, and while I was reading the book we were having very high winds and dirt was blowing everywhere and I was covered with dirt from the wind storm, but it was nothing compared to the sand storms in the Middle East!
This is a must read to help you understand what it was like to be a Christian and have to hide from authorities and friends when going to church services, and not being able to talk openly about your faith without fear of persecution.
We ave many freedoms here in America that are slowly being taken away.    We need to pray for our country and it's leaders to make sure this does not happen here!
