Book Review | Angels Walking

Happy Saturday! I'm going to pop in real quick and share an awesome book with y'all. I read it a week ago. (:

Karen Kingsbury's: Angels Walking


First, let me start by saying that other books that Karen Kingsbury has written in the past have really deepened in my faith in Jesus. Angels Walking was a super inspirational book that has help me look more for God's fingerprints in my life. 

A summary of Angels Walking from the book itself:
"Somewhere in heaven, a decision has been made. An angels walking team has been assigned to a desperate mission: a broken baseball player, the love he left behind, and the miracle that might save a whole city. When angels walk, most people never know, never see. But they are there. And sometimes the stakes are so high, all of heaven stands ready.  One-time national baseball hero Tyler Ames has lost everyone he loves on a quest to make it to the big leagues. Then, just when things seem to be turning around, Tyler hits rock bottom. Across the country, Tyler's only love, Sami Dawson, has moved on. A series of small miracles leads Tyler to a maintenance job at a retirement home and a friendship with Virginia Hutcheson, an elderly woman with Alzheimer's, who strangely might have the answers he so desperately seeks. A team of Angels Walking takes on the mission to see hope restored for Tyler, Sami, and Virginia. Can the small and seemingly insignificant actions of the unseen bring healing and redemption? Can the words of the stranger restore a lost love? Every journey begins with the step. 
It is time for the mission to begin."
It was an incredible book! It really made me think about angels walking the earth. I would definitely recommend this book. I think it's suitable for all ages. 

Let me know if you read it! And make sure to check out some of Karen Kingsbury's other books such as The Bridge, Fifteen Minutes, the Baxter Family series and so much more! Her books are amazing!

Friday Favorites

It's Friday! Here are my favorites this week...

I love Proverbs. It is so rich in wisdom. I just want to highlight the whole book. ;) Proverbs 3:5-6 might be my favorite verse in Proverbs 3. He will show me what paths to take. I don't have to depend on myself but on Him. How. Awesome.

CANDY. Need I say more?? I should hope not. 

So, Digger sneaked into Sydney and Emma's room. Emma and I were in there and just could not resist his puppy dog eyes! I tried to resist the cuteness but I just could not. So, I just let him snuggle under the covers once. I have never done this any other time... :P

Re-post: "Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about what happens to you." 1 Peter 5:7 (NLT) Love this picture and love this verse.

Me every time I read a book. *grin*

Saw this and had to post it! Who doesn't love the minions? HAPPY FRIDAY!
