Lonestar Secrets

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Lonestar Secrets, it very well written and easy to read. Colble writing really drew me into the story and continually surprised me. The book Lonestar secrets revolves around the life of Shannon Astor who return to her hometown to work as the vet. Colble very masterfully wove Biblical truths throughout her story without it becoming preachy or tedious. She was able to keep the story flowing at a good pace while still making it easy to read and understand. All in all, i really enjoyed reading this book, it was the kind of book you pick up and can't put down until the last page. Now that I've been introduced to this author I'll be looking for more of her books!!

I have to first say that i have yet to read a book by Max Lucado that i didn't absolutely Love! And of course Fearless went far beyond my expectations! In his book Fearless Lucado talks about living our live not in fear but with trust in our Heavenly Father! Lucado gave many great examples of how to overcome and move beyond this paralysing fear that people tend to live with. I love that he uses real life situations as illustrations and gives us straight forward ways to apply these truths to our lives! Lucado as always, lays it out in an easy to read/understand and an easy to apply way, that makes changing one's life and outlook as simple as it can possibly be. I also am so happy to see how much Scripture he uses in his book! I love that he gives us simple ways to apply God's truths to our lives!
This is one of those books that i honestly can say has absolutely changed me and the way i look at the present time and future!
