Where Love Once Lived by Sidney W Frost book review

Where Love Once Lived
By: Sidney W Frost

Where Love Once Lived is an amazing book by Sidney Frost. This book is about forgiving yourself and others so you can live your life to the fullest extent that God intended. It is always best to tell the truth; but even when we don’t, God uses those times as well. Following Karen and Brian’s journeys away from each other, and then back together again, we see that by not telling the truth, both were hurt and spent years in pain. But, when they got back together and faced the truth, they find healing and forgiveness.

Brian and Karen get separated just when Karen thought they would be spending the rest of their lives together. Another woman comes into Brian’s life and he never looks back. Karen moves on and can’t believe it when Brian comes back into her life. Both must face the past, come to terms with how they hurt each other, and find a path to forge ahead. This book will touch your heart and bring tears to your eyes. The unbelievable power of God and His love will move you. The characters are so well depicted, you have to keep reading to see what happens and to make sure everything will be worked out in the end.

Where Love Once Lived is a definite must read for anyone who enjoys a great love story powered by God’s love and forgiveness. Learning how to forgive, love, and move on is hard for anyone to do. Brian and Karen have so many things to work through; but, their story is an encouragement to us. God will never leave us nor forsake us. He is there waiting for us to call on Him—and when we do—He is there. Pick this book up today and enjoy a great book. I can’t wait to read another book by Sidney Frost!

First Date by Krista McGee

First Date
By: Krista McGee

This book is amazing! Krista McGee is a Christian young adult fiction writer, but First Date is for anyone who wants to know how to let God use them in their lives. Addy Davidson is picked to be a participant in the reality TV show, The Book of Love. The winner gets to go to the prom with the President of the United State’s son, Jonathon. Addie doesn’t want to be on the show; she wants to be left alone to live her life in quiet. Unknown to her, God wants her to be on this show to step up and speak up for Him. Once she realizes this, she is nervous about speaking of her faith to others who may not believe like she does, but she relies on God to give her the words to say. If you’re nervous, shy, or feel you can’t talk to people about your faith, you must read this book!

I could picture myself in Addie’s shoes. She is a Christian, placed in unfamiliar surroundings, with people who aren’t Christians, and she feels God leading her to share her faith with them. How does she do this? How can she do this? Esther in the Bible is a similar story. She was put in a position for such a time as this. God put her there to do His work. By faith, Ester and Addie step out and talk about God’s love. We know how Ester’s story turns out. You’ll have to read First Date to see how Addie’s story turns out. You won’t be disappointed!

Krista McGee writes with wit, charm, and her love for God shines through this book. Sit back, relax, and enjoy getting to know Addie, Kara, and the other Book of Love contestants. These characters are very well developed; you think about them after the story has ended. Hopefully, there will be other stories coming out about these other characters! I would love to read more by this author. I received this book from Booksneeze in exchange for a review.
