Throw Down Your Shadows by Deborah Hemming

I blindly picked up this book, with no pretense or idea what it was about or who it was targeted towards. I admit this because I hesitated reading in but am so very glad I did! Sometimes new books and new authors can surprise you and Deborah Hemming did just that with Throw Down Your […]

The Beauty of Humanity Movment by Camilla Gibb

We All Will Be Received by Leslie Vryenhoek My rating: 5 of 5 stars I had no idea what to expect but, as cliche as it was, was hooked immediately.
