Roots & Sky (a review)

I have been reading a lot this winter, and I'm grateful for it. I'm even MORE grateful to get to be a member of the Revell Reads review team!! They allow me to read books for free, simply for my honest review!

It's been a very long time since I read a book that took me in immediately and enveloped me in her world. Roots & Sky by Christie Purifoy is that book.

Not only did the story capture me (which, in itself, is real-life reflections), but the spiritual truths encouraged me right where I am, even though our age/stage are very different.

Her complete transparency of situations, emotions, even spiritual growth, enamored me to a point I couldn't put the book down. It was begging me to be read from my nightstand, and got me up early in the morning before my day began. So well written, such a comfortable voice to read, and a delightful story that begs to go on all captured my attention.

I hope she'll write more. I want to know how things turn out for her, her friendships and neighborhood relationships beckon to be told.

You can find Roots & Sky at Christian and online retail sites.

I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
