The Faces of Forgiveness Book Review for Book Crash Book Review Program

Image
When I think of the action of forgiveness,   phrases such as  "I am sorry" I didn't mean it."  "I am so sorry" come to mind. Then, afterward a hug and smile follow.  Then it is all over. And we can get on with our lives as if it never happened right?

Well, Forgiveness is more than Just I am sorry. It has many layers. It is complicated. It is more than just what it seems. In his book, "Faces of Forgiveness: Healing for the Hearts We Feel" Dr. David Christensen takes a closer look at what forgiveness really means.

What is forgiveness?
The action or process of forgiving or being forgiven. It is being resolved of the action that caused the rift in the relationship or friendship. Then, all involved are OK, And life can get along as usual. But forgiveness is more than I am sorry.

What forgiveness is not, is First, It is not an absolution, It does not mean one is absolved from all consequences or behavior. 2nd, It does not mean a reunion. It does not me…

White Picket Fences Book Review for Tyndale Book Bloggers

Does being the mother of a infant with a disability mean you are less than a parent? Does having a infant with a disability mean, the infant is wrong somehow? Does it mean the parents aren't fit to be parents? And they need help to care for their infant. In White Picket Fences Amy Becker addresses these issues with great care and raw truth.  Amy Becker is resting in the hospital after giving birth to her daughter, Penny when she overhears a woman in the bed next her, speaking Spanish. She had just given birth as well. Two mothers connected because they were mothers. Ms. Becker wonders if the woman's story fits the profile of a woman from the "inner city" Unemployed, Surrounded by violence and murder."  What kind of home does she live in?  They don't have much in common the Hispanic mother is mostly likely poor, and doesn't have the financial resources  to provide for her baby. Whereas, Ms. Becker has the financial means and supports to quit her job if s…

"Silent Days, Holy Nights" tells the story of Julia Russell,  a young girl, in 2002,  who steps into the castle of a older man named Henry Lafferty Her life is changed after this meeting. She overhears a secret about him that she is determined  to use for the good.  When Julia meets Mr. Lafferty she realizes that he is hearing impaired. She decides to learn sign language, so she can communicate with him. She wants to be friends with him despite  the barrier of him being hearing impaired. I really liked that about Julia. Her willingness to be friends with someone different from her. She is really a kind person.  The Epilogue, 16 years later,  says Julia went on the attend college, and earn a degree in deaf studies. She is also working on a degree in law. She is still friends with Mr. Lafferty. I am pleased that Ms. Nichols includes a person with a disability in her writing. It is nice to have diversity and inclusion of a character with a disability in Christian Fiction. My o…

Sacred Holidays Christmas is more than Santa Claus

Image
I recall seeing pictures, movies, and the culture of Christmas, as being about family, friends, and fellowship. I recall gift giving not be of much importance. I recall people being more worried about not being able to spend much time with their loved,ones, and holding on to the memories of family gatherings while there is still time. Back when people actually cared about family. Now, in today's culture the price of a gift matters more and the commercialization of Christmas, for example, Hallmark Channel shows Christmas movies at the end of October, why? It's barely Halloween, and not even Thanksgiving. Why? The commercialization of Christmas.  The real meaning of Christmas is Jesus. He was born in a manger, surrounded by farm animals, to a virgin mother. He came from humble beginnings and today's culture should not forget it. Christmas is about Christ, family, friends, love.
