Christian new releases

All the Places We Call Home* (picture book)... This is a sweet picture book about a little girl who currently lives in America but used to live in Africa. I think this is a really great and simple way of exploring all the different cultures that make up our home and all the different places that make up our world. This is published by a Christian imprint but is not a heavily Christian book.

Fatal Code* (romantic suspense)... Romantic suspense is not my genre and I wondered at first if I would be able to make it through the main characters bold personality quirks (like saying "bruh" all the time) but this is a really fascinating thrill ride centered around the Los Alamos project, which I had never heard of before, and SNAP agents which I was not at all familiar with. If you like romantic suspense I think this one will make you very happy.

A Hole in the World* (nonfiction)... This is a beautiful work designed to help you through grief. This is not an easy subject to write about but the author handled it with grace and allows her readers the ability to process their grief and hurt while also maintaining their dignity. I am grateful to have this one on the shelf for the next season of grief because we all know that is part of life that we will all experience multiple times.

Love You S'more* (picture book)... This picture book is published by a Christian imprint but does not actually contain any Christianity references or themes aside from love. This is a very sweet parent-and-child raccoon eating s'mores while explaining in fun rhyming sentences why each loves the other "s'more."

The Path to Peace* (devotional)... I really appreciated Ann Swindell's writing here. There are a good variety of stories straight out of scripture mixed with her own applicable real-life anecdotes to help you bridge the gap between a Bible story and its relevance in your Modern Life.

Uniquely You* (picture book)... This picture book by Joyce Meyer was a big hit and even my nine-year-old said he enjoyed it though he is too cool for most picture books these days. This is a lovely message about the fact that God gave each of us unique gifts and created us all so individually, and that we can use our unique gifts for the greater good. A message I think every child (and adult!) needs to hear! 

* I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
