My Review

Lucas Twiggs was a little boy with all the bad luck a child could have. When he turned three everything started going wrong for him. He got all the bird poo that fell on him. He always was hit by a wayward drone or a spray of water. He got so tired of it, so his mum tried to help him. She found his dad’s lucky underpants. He wore them and all of the sudden his luck turned around. He was so happy, especially when math class was cancelled. But what was going to happen to his dad, who needed his lucky pants when his favorite football team played?

Get swept up in an enthralling new romance series featuring women who rule the hearts of Viking men.

ELLISIF~
Forced into a financially advantageous marriage that spirals into a nightmare, Ellisif cannot help but imagine what might have been and ache for what was lost. The only lights in her life are her daughters and the friendships she’s forged with the household servants.

Though seven years have passed since Ellisif wed another man, Dagar still cannot forget the woman who captured his youthful heart. As the Viking warrior battles for his country’s future, he finds himself entangled in a personal war for Ellisif’s freedom that could cost his family their reputation and standing with the king. If he risks all, can he save the woman whose face still haunts his dreams? And if given another chance, will she choose him?

INARA~
Escaped slave Inara is determined to start a new life. Under the guidance of warrior and shipbuilder Håkon, her sword skill grows, as does her confidence that the Viking men will accept her as a warrior in her own right.

When she is selected to lead a perilous rescue mission to protect Ellisif, Inara finds herself blindsided by feelings for Håkon…and by threats to her freedom far closer than she feared. As dreams and desires collide, she wrestles against the lies holding her captive. Can she conquer her doubts before all that she’s hoped for slips from her hands?

Written by award-winning historical author Heather Day Gilbert and fresh voice Jen Cudmore, two love stories entwine in this sweeping Viking-era romance, the first novel in the Tavland Vikings series.

MY REVIEW

I love Historical Fiction, but have never been a fan of Viking tales. I tried to start reading the book with an open mind. The beginning of the book was so filled with Viking names and descriptions of their surroundings, that I got bogged down. As the story developed and the plot became obvious I found the book to be very interesting.

We have a story in which one of the women has had her heart broken because her first arranged marriage didn’t work out. She was married to a man who could provide a comfortable home, but no love. She was abused physically and mentally and her husband cheated on her openly.

She longed for her true love, but dared not act on the feelings because of her Christian faith and the love for her children. Her true love longed for her, but knew that she belonged to someone else. He still tried to help her from afar.

The other woman was a striking Viking woman who was good at self-defense. She had been a slave and wanted desperately to be free. When she does earn her freedom, the man who freed her asked her to work undercover as a slave. Although she was paid well to do this, it was terribly hard on her heart.

I enjoyed the book as the relationships with God and with others was beautifully described. This emotional read will be most loved by those who enjoy reading about Vikings, but it’s a great read for everyone else, too.

My Review

This is a lovely little book written for children. The illustrations are whimsical and children will enjoy learning how the father and daughter walk to school. I love how they showed the various hats and gear that can be needed when the weather calls for it.

Finally, the little girl asked her father “Why do we walk? The author gives a great answer…..what would you say?

Author Bio – Siena is a real Canadian kid who likes making up stories with her father. Both of whom choose to create these books somewhat anonymously.

Eve, Where Are You? Book Blitz

 

Confronting Toxic Practices Against the Advancement of Women

 

Christian Living, Women’s Issues

Date Published: November 24, 2020

 

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

Without question, having competent women in leadership can certainly enhance the vitality of any organization. Sadly, too often women are not given equal opportunities and are left doubting their sense of self and their abilities.

In Eve, Where Are You?, Dr. Nicole Davis uniquely evaluates bias practices within one specific organization: the Christian church. You’ll learn why many women are discouraged, emotionally absent, leaving churches, or considering giving up religious pursuits altogether. Within these pages, Dr. Davis thoughtfully contemplates the scriptural significance of God’s creation of Eve; compares women’s leadership advances in the marketplace and church; and shares real-life stories and perceptions about women in leadership offered by present-day church leaders.

As a conflict coach and resolutionist, Dr. Davis boldly addresses possible causal effects of toxic practices against women and then offers strategic solutions and guidance to both women and church organizations to facilitate reconciliation, creating opportunity for the church to regain influence and effectiveness in our culture.

Crisp, aggressive, and truthful, this study presents a call to action for women who want more, men who want more for women, and church organizations seeking to embrace internal transformation against gender bias in the Christian church. Also available in Spanish.


About the Author

Dr. Nicole Davis is a wife, mother, pastor, Christian life coach, social science researcher, and conflict resolution practioner, with over 20 years of professional experience. Her areas of research interest include gender inequality, organizational leadership, women empowerment, and family dynamics.

Dr. Davis believes there is a huge distinction between a woman’s calling, which is determined by God, and a church’s doctrine about the utilization of women, which is a cultural decision predominantly determined by men.

Dr. Davis advocates for churches of all denominations to begin having open dialogue about systemic oppression and alienation against women.  Those who show no regard for women’s callings or competency levels. Women need to be developed and commissioned to serve at the highest levels.

Dr. Davis examines the deep-rooted conflict concerning what God intended when He created Eve in the Garden of Eden. She asks poignant questions inviting women to explore how they see themselves based on God’s original plan for them.
