Gift Guide, Giveaways, Reviews



Adored: 365 Devotions for Young Women is a beautiful collection of scripture and reflections directed at young girls, 13 and older. It is the perfect book for young ladies that face modern-day problems with grace and modesty. Each day includes a quote from scripture followed by a reflection. After reading the reflection, the reader has an ample area to journal thoughts and feelings.

As a junior high teacher, I see the need for young girls to need a daily reminder that they are loved by someone bigger than themselves. With Christmas upon us, the Adored: 365 Devotions for Young Women would make a thoughtful and unique gift.


Official Description

Each day features an easy-to- read, relevant devotion paired with a scripture verse and
journaling space to help readers reflect on the day’s message. The book tackles tough
topics girls face, from bullying and social media to friendships and dating, all the while
showing readers how infinitely precious they are in God’s sight.
There is no specific author. It will be listed as Zondervan.
$14.99, Hardcover, For ages 13 & up

Tyler Perry.png

Tyler Perry’s Higher is Waiting was released today,  November 14, 2017! I had just added it to my reading list when my copy arrived. Being from the South, I was intrigued by Perry’s memories of life in New Orleans. Higher Is Waiting journeys through Tyler Perry’s life while describing his relationship with God.

Each chapter offers reflections, Bible verses, and positive reinforcements. It is refreshing to read about a highlighted Hollywood mastermind that shares his spiritual journey.

Official Description

An intimate book of inspiration by one of the great cultural icons of our time
Higher Is Waiting is a spiritual guidebook, a collection of teachings culled from the experiences of a lifetime, meant to inspire readers to climb higher in their own lives and pull themselves up to a better, more fulfilling place. In this intimate book, Tyler Perry writes of how his faith has sustained him in hard times, centered him in good times, and enriched his life.
Beginning with his earliest memories of growing up a shy boy in New Orleans, Perry recalls the moments of grace and beauty in a childhood marked by brutality, deprivation, and fear. With tenderness he sketches portraits of the people who sustained him and taught him indelible lessons about integrity, trust in God, and the power of forgiveness: his aunt Mae, who cared for her grandfather, who was born a slave, and sewed quilts that told a story of generations; Mr. Butler, a blind man of remarkable dignity and elegance, who sold penny candies on a street corner; and his beloved mother, Maxine, who endured abuse, financial hardship, and the daily injustices of growing up in the Jim Crow South yet whose fierce love for her son burned bright and never dimmed. Perry writes of how he nurtured his dreams and discovered solace in nature, and of his resolute determination to reach ever higher.
Perry vividly and movingly describes his growing awareness of God’s presence in his life, how he learned to tune in to His voice, to persevere through hard times, and to choose faith over fear. Here he is: the devoted son, the loving father, the steadfast friend, the naturalist, the philanthropist, the creative spirit—a man whose life lessons and insights into scripture are a gift offered with generosity, humility, and love.
In celebration of this great release, I will be hosting a giveaway! Please share on social media!
The giveaway is for 1 copy of Tyler Perry’s Higher Is Waiting.
