I am glad to introduce to you author, Bonnie S.

For Bonnie’s story and journey, take a look below. Miranda ~ Hello and welcome, Bonnie! Glad to have you on TBAP today. Could you please tell us a bit about yourself? Bonnie: I am a wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, and friend. All of those relationships nurture me. I enjoy being outside, especially near water.

Book Review ~ SuperGal Vs God by Lori Hynson

About the Book SuperGal. Strong, successful, self-reliant. A slightly mature—okay, middle-aged dynamo, a go-getter, an achiever. SuperGal figured she could control her own life and the rest of the world as well. Love? Phooey! Never again. Until the moment she found herself, well—back in love!

Book Review ~ Called To Suffer by Patricia Stuart

About the Book “All alone, abandoned, rejected, neglected and abused, I was ready to give up on life. Becoming a Christian did not end my suffering and pain.

What I didn’t know was that God had a marvelous plan attached to all of my suffering.” This is the true life story and testimony of Patricia Stuart. She shares God’s Grace and Mercy that covered her and rescued her when there was no hope! Genre Christian/Non-fiction/Self help/memoir My Rating 4.5 out of 5 (stars) My Review A major part of my calling involves books. So naturally, one of the ways God exposes a truth to me, or confirms one He’s teaching me, is to prepare an author who will tell it in such an awesome way that I can’t miss it. (I wrote all about this kind of experience in a post I titled, Why I Believe In Christian Fiction.) This book did …
