I am reading 183 Times a Year by Eva Jordan. There are 49 chapters in this book so it is going to take me a while  to write a review. I will be posting a reading progress update soon.

Side note: I got a new job. I start tomorrow  and I am nervous and excited at the same time. I am working at the Kiddie Academy as a Teacher's Aide. I hope everyone has a good week.

Review: Found in Translation ( Altered Hearts Book 1) by Rodger Burner

Here is a summary of what the book is about. Spoiled eighteen-year-old Kim Hartlinger arrives late to orientation for a mission trip to Mexico-she carelessly missed her flight-only to learn the project has changed. Construction in a remote village without plumbing and  electricity rather than evangelism in a medium-sized town with numerous souvenir and fast food places.

Kin's negative overreaction to the change angers the project leaders and her teammates and immediately makes her the least popular team member. She's determined to do better, though. And to be obedient to God.

When Kim breaks her arm, she feels useless. She wants to do evangelism, but the team didn't bring a translator and the villagers don't speak any English. Kim knows nada Spanish, and her "dual-language Bible" turns out to be Spanish-only.

Kim undertakes two one-handed projects. The first is her own idea. The second is God's, though, and it sounds crazy. Crazier than crazy. But will it touch the villagers' hearts with the Gospel? How can she even find out?

Wow what an amazing story. I absolutely enjoyed reading this one.

It is the type of book that reminds you of what is truly important and that is God. Reminder number two is no matter how bad you think you have it... there are other people who are worse off than you.

I would highly recommend this book. I can see myself reading it again.

Happy Reading Everyone!

Review: Rolf's Quest (Medieval Encounter Book 1) by Aubrey Wynne

This is what the story is about: The story takes place between 1139 A.D. and 1154 A.D. As the tale begins we learn that Merlin has been cursed because of a spell that he cast on a woman he loved. The spell was to make the woman love him. The curse she cast upon Merlin can only be broken by the first born son of Merlin's descendants.

In the autumn of 1139 A.D., in the Caledonian Forest of Scotland,  Rolf sees his father talking to a tree.The tree turned out to be a curse that bound Merlin, a legendary sorcerer. Rolf, a first born son of Merlin's  descendants, and the father asks Merlin to take Rolf and train him in hopes the curse on Merlin can finally be broken. Rolf's task is to find true love without the use of spells or trickery.

Rolf already has the woman of his dreams in mind, Melissa. The  only problem: Melissa is already betrothed to Charles Roker, a Duke in the Court of King Henry II. The engagement was arranged by Melissa's family. Alas, the arrangement was made not for love but to strengthen alliances between families. But Melissa begins having dreams about a young man with dark hair. While traveling to London to meet Charles Roker, Melissa meets Rolf in the forest along the way. When the two meet they instantly fall in love.

At the coronation of King Henry, King Henry asks Melissa if she really wants to marry Charles Roker. She tells King Henry that she does not love Charles and does not want to marry him. Now can Melissa and Rolf find love with each other or will the loyalty to her family's wishes override her love for Rolf.

Shape shifting and wizardry, love vs. loyalty, bring this story alive amongst the famed history of King Henry II.

I really enjoyed this story. I thought it was very interesting because it was set in a historical romance in the 1100 A.D. time period. A time when Kings and Queens and Dukes and Princesses ruled the nations. It was a time when families betrothed their sons and daughters to gain power and favor. This author handles this with skill and detail to the historical record.

The characters in this novel were very well developed, memorable and strong. Rolf and Melissa represent young lovers in every generation.

Love is magical in and of itself but with the powers of a sorcerer thrown in it gives the story unexpected twists and turns.

This story captivates you from the very beginning and holds you spellbound. I highly recommend this book to everyone who loves a great love story.

Happy Reading Everyone!

New Friendship App

Hey Everyone,

How is everybody doing? I wanted to share with you a new friendship app. It is called Patook. It is a strictly making friendships app. They don't allow flirting at all. You create a profile then you pick who you want to be friends with. For example if you only want to see profiles of women that's fine. Or if you want to see profiles of men as well. I signed up you should too. It is totally safe.

They won't let you post URL links in  a message to someone until you get to know them better. Also you can get your profile verified. You can have discussions with other people. You can post topics. You can send messages to people. You can see who visited your profile. Please let  me know if you join in the comments below this post.  Also when you sign up they don't let you use your last name  as a username only first names. The best part is it's free you can upgrade to the premium later. It came out in 2016 so it is still new. If you have problems with the app or questions the people in charge are very good about responding to you. I believe you will enjoy this app.
