The Old Rugged Cross | Music Video

Another old favorite of mine... This hymn just calms me. It is so beautiful, so Christ-centered.



For info on the sheet music, check here.


Five Fall Favorites - Day Three | Giveaway!


Welcome into the BOOK room today! (if you've been reading all the way through and paying attention... the book room is where the giveaways are happening!


So, today I am super happy, pleased, and excited to host a giveaway! The prize? An eBook of your choice from yours truly (keep scrolling down for a chance to win paperback books!).

    

Those are just my novellas, but I have several short stories as well. To enter, you must comment. But let's make this a little fun. Tell me your favorite book (wow, so original... okay, but it's better than, "I'd love to win." ;) )! The giveaway will end TONIGHT, so you've got to get your comment in quickly! :)

But first, I don't want you to skim through these amazing books I've got picked out today -- because seriously, biography and non-fiction are extremely underrated. Seriously.

5 Favorite Biography Books
So these are both biography and auto-biography, but I really, really like them all! The past two days, I've put some books that were "alright" on my list, but these five? I love them and heartily recommend them!

1) Evidence Not Seen by Darlene Diebler Rose
213916

2) Chappie (this one has a special place in my heart, as it's my uncle's story) by Alton Carpenter and A. Anne Eiland
28378501

3) God's Smuggler by Brother Andrew with John and Elizabeth Sherrill
824062

4) A Bride Goes West by Nannie T. Alderson and Helena Huntington Smith

5) Forgiven by Terri Roberts
26212914

5 Favorite Non-fiction Books
Now for 5 non-fiction books that aren't biographies. ;) Everyone else is doing fantasy, but I'm not a fantasy reader, so I chose these instead. :D Most of these, yes, have to do directly with my writing.

Five Fall Favorites - Day Two


Welcome to day two of our "Five Fall Favorites" party! Grab a blanket, get all cozy, as we discuss romance and historical reads. Don't forget -- I like to hear which books are your favorites in these genres too, so be sure to comment!


5 Favorite Romance Books
This one is probably the hardest genre for me, as I am not exactly sure what classifies as "romance." If you've followed my review for any length of time, you probably noticed that I usually say something like, "It was great, but the romance..." ;) So, I suppose I'm going to choose five books that I liked that have romance in them. They may or may not be classified as "romance" though.

1) Wings of a Dream by Anne Mateer
10329469

2) A Dream Not Imagined by Shantelle Mary Hannu
25721914

3) The Lost Heiress by Roseanna White
22383696

4) The Sound of Diamonds by Rachelle Rea Cobb
24348955

5) Playing the Part by Jen Turano
25695484


5 Historical Fiction
Historical fiction is by far my favorite genre to read (and, actually, most of the books that I read...). So here goes! (I'm limited to only five...)

1) An Elegant Facade by Kristi Ann Hunter
27066722


2) Beyond the Silence by Tracie Peterson and Kimberly Woodhouse
25795195


3) Seasons of the Heart (series) by Janette Oke
65475


4) Where Can I Flee? by A.M. Heath
23015505


5) Lily of the Valley by Faith Blum
27220924

Dear Commenters...

Just a quick post! In the past few months, I've noticed that several people have been commenting on different posts here. I can't express how much I appreciate your comments! I like to reply to them all personally, but alas! I rarely find time for that! So, dear commenters, this evening I HAD the time, and if you've commented on my blog in the last two months (especially if you've asked me a question), I have finally replied. Thanks for your patience! I appreciate you all so very much!

5 Favorite Mystery Books
