Music & Videos

Even though this blog is devoted to book reviews, I am taking this time to highlight certain songs and the corresponding videos that I have listened to while reading (or writing). Each of these songs have a message that have spoken to me on multiple levels. As you listen to them, take a moment and think about the story the song is telling. These are books in musical form. To make this more fun, comment and tell me your favorite song (or music video) and what genre you love to read for a chance to win a free book. Remember to leave your email so that I can message you if you win.

Enjoy these songs!

1: Lauren Daigle - Come Alive (Dry Bones)


2: The Afters - Live on Forever


3: Unspoken - Open the Clouds


4: Ryan Stevenson - Eye of the Storm


5: Skillet - Stars


6: Switchfoot - Live It Well


7: Need to Breathe - Happiness


8: Hawk Nelson - Diamonds


9: Capital Kings - Believer


10: For King & Country - Shoulders


Hope you  enjoyed the list of songs that I found inspirational.

Unexpected Christmas Gifts

Christmas has always been a wonderful time to me. I love the lights, the decorations, the music, and most of all the love. Even though it seems that each year the Christmas seems to become more commercialize, I have seen a resurgence of the true meaning of Christmas. 

When it comes to gifts, a lot of gifts are not needed nor should it be practiced. Instead, think of the wise men and how their three gifts were precious in the sight of God.

To help with choosing a few gifts, I am listing a few books that I have found that would be enjoyed. Click the link to connect with the author via social media. And help support an author this Christmas and buy one of the books.
