Please Remember!!

prayer11I would be SO HONORED if you would allow me to pray for you! You can email me at:

aTransParentMom@gmail.com

It can be anonymous, ugly, heartbreaking and crushing. I would love to pray with you and for you. Please don’t hesitate to use that email for anything you would like me to talk to God about. You don’t even have to tell me your name OR the problem. Just say, “PRAY FOR ME!!”.

God knows and that’s good enough!! When there’s more than one praying, it just makes it easier. I would love to do that for you, friend ❤

Sand in My Sandwich (and Other Motherhood Messes I’m Learning to Love)

by Sarah Parshall Perry

What an important book! Let me tell you, this is such a big topic because it is something that so many people are dealing with. Marriage struggles, children with severe “disorders” and personal health problems. Sound familiar? Welcome to the modern mom’s life!

Sarah attacks this subject with a vigor and complete honesty. Her boys’ medical rap sheets include a diagnosis of severe autism, Asperger’s syndrome, OCD, among other things. While she takes us in the everyday life of a mom trying to understand her child, she does so with wit, passion and a deep love of God.

Please pick up a copy of this book. You might think twice before scowling at the family in the booth next to you as their child is crying, vomiting, screaming, etc… Bible verse after Bible verse, Sarah talks us through her growth. It’s such a beautiful picture. It brought tears to my eyes. As you know, I am someone that believes in transparency (thus the name of my blog). Sarah doesn’t hide a thing! She lays it out there so that God can be given all the glory and we can learn and grow from her life lessons.

Thank you, Revell, for a copy of this wonderful book! As always, this is my honest review. Here’s to many more!!

Killing Christians – Living the Faith Where It’s Not Safe to Believe

by Tom Doyle (with Greg Webster)

Everyone should read this book. Period.

As news channels broadcast everything going on in the middle east, we see millions of images and hear millions of stories: ISIS, Hamas, Muslim Radicals, Islamic Radicals, innocent civilians being killed and people all over the world persecuted for their faith. People are sick of religion and looking for something different. Religion causes war, suffering and fear.

This book takes you inside some of the lives of people that are currently living in those situations. People that are currently suffering and being persecuted, tortured and killed for their love of Jesus. As you read story after story of how God is moving in the midst of persecution, it will inspire you and your own faith.

Tom Doyle asks us the two big questions: “Are you willing to suffer for Jesus?” and “Are you willing to die for Jesus?”. The answer to these questions will show you where you are at in your life and relationship with Him. After reading this book, you will have made up your mind!

Pre-orders start on December 17th for Killing Christians. Get those orders in and gift the pre-ordered book this Christmas!!!! Here’s the link!!
