The Encounter

This was a really good book that I believe addresses an issue many people have to deal with in life today. It is about a man who was adopted by a wonderful family. He grows up to be successful. However, the questions remain inside of him about why his birth mother gave him up. Eventually these questions turn into anger and resentment towards someone he never knew, and he begans to have health problems, depression, relationship problems.
As he seeks to find the answers to his questions, he ends up finding much more than he bargained for.
There is a discussion/study guide in the back of the book as well as a section entitled The Truth Behind the Fiction.
Very nicely done and a quick and easy read in the Christian fiction genre.
I received this book free from BookSneeze in exchange for my honest review presented here.

His Princess Love Letters From Your King by Sheri Rose Sheperd

What a wonderful blessing this book has been to me! It makes my relationship with God even more personal as I read the Scriptures He has provided for me and the letters that Ms. Sheperd has been inspired to write as if from God to me. Each day I can pick up this little book and spend 5 minutes or less reading a love letter from God to me and the Scripture verse that goes along with the letter. The pictures in the book add to the whole feel of something special that has been created for me!
I thought immediately of at least 12 of my friends who would love to be blessed by this book. It is a wonderful gift and I believe the Lord inspired Ms. Sheperd to write these words.
As I visited her website and read her biography, I was even more blessed knowing the person behind the book. Her ministry to women involves writing, speaking, and providing encouragement through the His Princess website. She is an inspiration to all women. This book is perfect for any woman of any age and even young ladies in their teens. Such a great devotional book!
