Damascus Count Down by Joel C. Rosenberg

This is the 3rd book in the wonderful series by Joel Rosenberg that is full of heart racing action, mystery and intrigue.
I love how the story weaves in so many different stories and has excellent secondary characters, I am also glad they have a list of characters in the front of the book as you need it to keep everyone straight!

CIA agent David Shiraziis trying to get into the inner circle Iranian regime, but is time running out as the Twelfth Imam retaliates against Israel looking to annihilate them because Israel destroyed all of their nuclear warheads,but two. Will David and his team be able to find the two remaining nuclear warheads that the Iranians have before  they are used against Israel?  

I really enjoyed this book,it was well written and fascinating. Despite it being a large book (over 400 pages) the reading went very quickly and I had no problem getting through it.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes mystery and end time type books.

Note: I received a complimentary copy for an honest review of this book from Tyndale House.

To Honor and Trust by Judth Miller and Tracie Peterson

"To Honor and Trust" by Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller is the 3rd book in the Bridal Veil Island series.I have not read the two previous books,but I do not think that put me at a sever disadvantage.

Callie DeBoyer is a young governess on Bridal Veil Island trying to figure out where God wants her to go in life.Should she continue working as a governess or join her family as missionaries in Africa? When Callie enrolls in her young charge in golf lessons she  gets to know the instructor Wesley Townsend and is attracted to him,but when she finds out his secrets will she be able to trust him again? 

This book was a frothy, easy read. It was a cute story without being horribly profound, but if you want a nice easy read it is not bad.

Disclaimers: I received this book for review from the publisher Bethany House.

I Am Not But I Know I Am by Louie Giglio

This is a great reprint of the popular book by Louie Giglio. This book " I am not but I know I am" is a great reminder that God the creator of the universe is looking for everyday, ordinary people to help Him. This book really encouraged me as I thought Mr. Giglio did a superb  job at speaking to everyone and reminding us that in God's eyes we are all significant and important. He did a great job of mixing scriptures and stories from his life, which I found very interesting.

I highly recommend this book and hope more people will realize just how significant they really are to God.
