About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Straight to the Heart of Matthew- Kregel Blog Tour

   I have been enjoying the Straight to the Heart devotional series by Phil Moore for the past month.  The particular book was Straight to the Heart of Matthew.  There are a number of reasons I really liked it.

#1- Phil Moore gets right to the point.  In an entertaining and engaging way he educates without talking down to you.  I liked his style and wanted to read more!  In fact, I even brought the book along on vacation.:)
#2- The chapters are short. (3-4 pages)  It's amazing how much information is packed into a mini lesson.  This gives you time to ponder and pray.
#3- Phil Moore talks in a language you can understand.  You won't need a dictionary or even the Bible when you read, yet you will learn quite a lot.  He talks to you, not at you.

I would recommend the Straight to the Heart series to all of you.  I am sure that I will be purchasing more in the future as I really got a lot out of studying the book of Matthew with Phil Moore.  

**You may be interested to know that starting February 22nd and continuing through Easter Sunday, Kregel Publications will be tweeting links to Straight to the Heart of Romans.  The entire book will be posted as short, five to ten minute, daily readings.  You can find it by following Kregel Publications or #Straight2Heart on Twitter.**

*I was given a copy of Straight to the Heart of Matthew from Kregel Publications in exchange for my honest review.  No other compensation was received.*
