Tyndale Giveaway!!

Go here for a chance to win a great book! I've read both of these and highly recommend them!!


This story is all about how Rick & Bubba became big name radio personalities. They are just two country boys from Calhoun County, Alabama who happen to be in the right places at the right times. It tells all about the journey and the risks they (and those around them) took. It is an inspiring story for those trying to find their place in the big bad world called LIFE. A great (almost...haha) true story that will help the average Joe!

Mine Is The Night

I met Liz Curtis Higgs many years ago at a book signing (I had never heard of her, nor read any of her books!). Now that I have read several of her books, I wish I could meet her again and be her friend! I would love to travel to Scotland with her (which she does when researching for her books).

This is the 6th historical novel I have read by Liz. And this has become my favorite. It took me 5 days to read all 442 pages of it. Once I started reading, I did not want to put it down.

The character Marjory has lost her sons, her possessions, and her place in society (all things she loved more than The Lord); she and her widowed daughter-in-law are looking to start a new life and are trusting in The Lord to provide for their every need. This riveting story will help the reader see how God works in everything. Marjory says towards the end of the book, "You have dealt kindly with me after all, Lord. You have, You have! I came home empty, and you filled me to overflowing". I pray I will be filled to overflowing like Marjory!

"Our real blessings often appear to us in the shape of pains, losses, and disappointments; but let us have patience, and we soon shall see them in their proper figures." ~Joseph Addison
