All The Single Ladies by Dorothea Benton Frank - my review

All The Single Ladies by Dorothea Benton Frank is a fun and fast read for summer (or anytime).

Three middle-aged ladies trying to start life over.  Told from the viewpoint of Lisa, who is a geriatric nurse. When one of her favorite patients, Kathy, dies of cancer, she ends up becoming friends with Kathy's best friends, Carrie and Suzanne. Throw in an elderly grandmother, Miss Trudie, who everyone loves and would love to have as their own grandmother. Lisa, Carrie, and Suzanne, try to find out the secrets of Kathy's past and prove that her landlord is trying to steal from her at the same time. All while they are each dating new men in their lives.

I enjoyed this witty book, and highly recommend it, especially to middle-aged women such as myself. I received a FREE copy from LibraryThing in exchange for my honest review.

Discerning the Voice of God by Priscilla Shirer - my review

Discerning the Voice of  God: How to Recognize When God is Speaking by Priscilla Shirer is a fantastic book that shows ways that God does still speak to us today if we will only take time to listen.

Ms Shirer does an absolutely amazing job in explaining how we can hear God through his word, how God may use others to confirm what He is trying to tell you.

There are interesting chapter challenges at the end of each chapter for us to try that will bring us closer to God and recognizing when He is speaking to us.

I personally remember a time when I thought a person was crazy that said that they had heard from God, but He does still speak to us His word his very much alive!

I enjoyed this book from start to finish, as it confirmed for me what I was already experiencing. Can't wait to share this book with others who want to learn how to tell when God is speaking.

One of my favorite quotes from the book is...
"He speaks. God speaks. Your Lord and Savior speaks. To you. So wake up expecting. Arrive expecting. Come expecting. Live expecting. Never stop...Expecting."
