The One Hour Bible

I can’t really review this book in the same way as I would usually, for one simple reason. Unlike some other ‘read the Bible’ books where the content is rewritten to make it fit into an hour, this was the… Continue Reading →

Matt Redman – 10,000 Reasons

Starting with the story of Matt at the Grammy’s, you’d be forgiven for starting to think this book was going to be a popularity thing. But it rapidly becomes clear that Matt is not like that at all. The book… Continue Reading →

Bryony Taylor – More TV Vicar?

When I spotted this book on a trip to my favourite book shop (Barter Books in Alnwick), I knew I had to have it. Firstly, because I’ve heard Bryony’s name mentioned many times at our church as she was here… Continue Reading →

Jonathan Falwell – 1000 Days: The Ministry of Christ

I’m in two minds on this book. On one hand, I feel like when I was reading it, I did find myself nodding in agreement with things that were said. But on the other hand, I started reading this book… Continue Reading →

Paul Williams & Barry Cooper – If You Could Ask God One Question

I’ve had this book on my Amazon wishlist for ages, and my lovely sister bought it for me for Christmas. It’s something that I’ve been asked a few times this year on the various courses I’ve done at Church –… Continue Reading →

Raechel Myers & Amanda Bible Williams – She Reads Truth

The anticipation for this book was immense. I heard about the book when it was first announced on the She Reads Truth website, I eventually got around to pre-ordering it a month before it came out, but Amazon made me… Continue Reading →

Steve Ross – Marked

I recently went on our Church Parish Weekend, and had the pleasure of helping out with one of the youth groups for the weekend. One of the resources given to each of the children during the weekend was a copy… Continue Reading →

Confirmation and First Communion

Today was my confirmation at Church. Since coming back into my faith last year and starting attending Pudsey Parish Church, I’ve done lots of things that have made my life so much better, I’ve started going to a weekly Cell… Continue Reading →

In all things, PRAY!

Our Church service on Sunday was about how we shouldn’t just turn to God as a last resort, he should be our first port of call. And not just when we’re in trouble or need help, but when things are… Continue Reading →

The Creed

When I previously went to a Methodist Church, the¬†services never followed a particular plan, and we never really did prayers or recited text as a whole church, except for the Lord’s Prayer. But since going to Pudsey Parish,¬†it’s been quite… Continue Reading →

Walking through the Old Testament

At the weekend, I went to an event at Pudsey Parish Church called Walk Through The Bible. This particular one was the Old Testament version, but they also run a New Testament version too. Ever since I started going back… Continue Reading →

Perfect way to start the day!

Started my day with a walk around Yeadon Tarn, with a stop half way around for a rest to enjoy the view and read. Perfect way to thank God for the beauty of nature and that we get to enjoy… Continue Reading →

Romans 3: 23

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came through Christ Jesus.

Feeling very inspired right now…

A couple of weeks ago, I saw a post from Pudsey Parish Church on Facebook about the start of their Believe in Pudsey week, which was kicking off with ‘An Evening with John Sentamu’. It sounded interesting and it was… Continue Reading →

Review: A. J. Jacobs – The Year of Living Biblically

I decided to read this book as a bit of an impulse. When I joined the library, I was looking around to see what kind of books they had, and I took a look at their religious section. This one… Continue Reading →

Review: Michael Mayne – A Year Lost and Found

Sometimes, a book comes into your life at just the right time, and this was so perfectly timed it’s untrue. I only picked it up by a random choice when I was browsing the religion section at the library. It… Continue Reading →

Good Friday

I can’t quite believe that it’s Easter already, this year has gone by so quickly. I have managed to stick to giving up chocolate for Lent though, even if it did mean that I couldn’t eat the gorgeous smelling dinner… Continue Reading →

John 14:27

I’ve had this in my head the last couple of days, I’m finding it quite comforting. It’s also reminded me that I’m a bit behind on my two Lent reading books, I’m really enjoying those, particularly The Purpose Driven Life,… Continue Reading →

Review: Rob Lacey – The Liberator

As I have already read this book a few times, I knew it was going to be great, but I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. Every time I read it I get something different out of it, and… Continue Reading →

Lent Reading: Rick Warren – The Purpose Driven Life & John Piper – The Passion of Jesus Christ

For lent this year (as well as giving up chocolate again), I’ve decided to re-read two books that I’ve read and loved in the past. The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. This book is handily split into 40 sections/days… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Rob Lacey – The Liberator

I’ve read this book a few times in the past (as you can probably tell from the tatty edges of the cover), and it’s one of my favourites. I’ve not read it for a while, and I found myself really… Continue Reading →
