Thank you for stopping by my blog. Lately I have been reviewing books and haven't had as much time to scrap. Hopefully soon I'll get back to scrapping and creating some new files. Thank you for your patience.

I have made files available at absolutely no charge. I do this for fun. I am learning the wonderful Make The Cut (MTC) program and trying to improve my skills. Most of the files have been created from free coloring sheets online. You will need MTC software in order to cut these files. Please use these files for your personal use only and if you want to share them with others please direct others to my blog. I hope you enjoy these files. Comments are always appreciated.

If God is Good: Faith in the Midst of Suffering and Evil

Randy Alcorn’s book If God is Good isn’t a book that is read quickly. It will take time to go through it and study it. With all of the sufferings in the world many people are asking the question if God is good then why does he not stop the bad things from happening? I chose this book because I have heard this question over and over again in a world that is increasing leaving the Word of God and choosing to not believe in His existence. I wanted a better answer, a biblical answer.  I have not yet finished this book but have read enough of it to review it. I want to be able to spend time in it and really ponder on what Randy Alcorn is trying to get across.
First, Mr. Alcorn wants us to understand the problems of evil and suffering and how the two are different. He has broken the book up into 11 sections. I will not list all of those here because you can easily find them.
Second, and to me very important, he backs up what he is telling us with scripture. This is what I’m looking for. When reading these types of books I want to know what God says not what man thinks.
Mr. Alcorn gives us a lot to think about. He explains what open theists and agnostics believe and what they say about God, and then he backs up God’s plan with God’s word.
If you have questions about how God could be good or if you are just wanting to learn why there is such suffering and evil in the world I would suggest grabbing this book and dig in. Grab our bible and plan on spending time learning. If you just want a quick read and a quick answer you might want to pass on this book as this book will require much time and studying in order to get the fullness of it.

Seagrass PIer

I love Colleen Coble’s books and I couldn’t put Seagrass Pier down. Although this is the third book in the series it could be a stand-alone much like the rest of her series books.
Elin Summerall, a widow, is recovering from a heart transplant when she starts to get vivid details about her donor’s murder. The details come to her in dreams, and it feels to Elin as if she is being murdered herself.  The police are skeptical of the “cell memory” that she is having. But when she it gets out the killer of her donor comes after her.  Agent Marc Everton, an off duty FBI agent and had a one night stand with Elin in a moment of weakness five years earlier. One look at Elin’s daughter and Marc knows that he’s her father.
True to Ms Coble’s writing style this book is filled with twists and turns, lots of action, and some romance to boot. It may be a little farfetched with the whole cell memory concept and the reality of whether or not it’s possible or real but if you can get passed that and take it for what is the book is wonderful.

The Healing Quilt

An August Bride

August Bride by Debra Clopton is much like the rest of the novellas in this series. Kelsey Wilcox, a jilted bride, now living in Corpus Christi has sworn off cowboys. She meets up with her aunts who are known as the “matchmaking posse” on the beach before the reception. All dressed in a sequined dress she ends up trying to save her aunt’s dog in the water and ends up in trouble herself. Brent quickly reacts to save the “mermaid”. Kelsey learns he is a cowboy who runs a ranch and doesn’t want anything to do with him.
I loved the “posse” they were such colorful characters and fun to get to know. The story is a quick read and quite predictable but if you have been enjoying this series the too is one you will want to read. It probably is one of my favorites so far.
