If you like tales of first contact, secret military operations, and the people caught in the middle, then you’ll love this breathtaking new seriesWednesday, April 29th, 2020
Sandra Kindt is always up for a good story, written or verbal, although there is that cookbook she won in elementary school that hasn’t seen the light of day. But the times she’s been caught reading historical novels with a highlighter—because there’s always something to learn—should make up for that.
After earning an MA in communication, she taught Organizational Behavior at several universities and Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People in the corporate world. Her love of writing goes back to the journals she started in the fifth grade, when she fancied herself Nancy Drew. She loves to hang out with her four grown-up kids and six grandchildren. It’s like visiting the best parts of herself.

It is valuable in introducing Christ’s gospel of love for all, the reality of the everlasting family, and the hope and healing that comes from the knowledge gained in understanding Sarah & Abraham’s covenant with GodSaturday, March 21st, 2020
It is the story of Sarah & Abraham, the covenant God made with them, and how their covenant benefits every one of us. It describes the promises He guaranteed them and guarantees everyone who commits to walk with him. It is valuable in introducing Christ’s gospel of love for all, the reality of the everlasting family, and the hope and healing that comes from the knowledge gained in understanding Sarah & Abraham’s covenant with God. Also, the book explains the universality of all religions united in their goals to serve and love each of God’s children.
The second book in the series is, Heaven Heals (Finding Hope in the Reunion with Your Lost Loved One.) It is due to release in late 2020.
Heaven Heals (audiobook) by author Kristin Landgren is a Non-fiction treatise about the blessings of Heaven. This is a Christian book that talks about the bible and the covenants therein. It also mentions the Book of Mormon and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint’s beliefs.
I enjoyed the pace of the narrator of this book and the clarity of her voice. I couldn’t hear any background noise or mishaps in the reading.
I recommend it to Christian and non-Christian readers alike, especially members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, since it explains the blessings from Heaven in a way that is easy to understand and follow. This is a great audiobook to have in the car, cell or tablet. It will get you to a happy place and you will feel positive and hopeful for your eternity.
I received a copy of the audiobook from Loving The Book in exchange for an honest review.
Through this light, He illuminates darkness, gives us guidance, and shows us how to love one another.

her heart isn’t listening.

over-optimistic baking expectations.
As Ally and Gavin slowly explore their growing attraction, they help each other

dressed down in jeans, he still smelled intoxicating, like the buttoned-up
lawyer she had met only a few weeks ago. The room looked strange and not at all
like the fantastical space she remembered. The old, worn open beams of the
stick-framed roof were the same grizzled brown, nails pinned haphazardly,
reminiscent of artwork hanging on wire strung between them, and to the side,
under the slant of the roof, sat a small twin-sized bed with the familiar faded
floral quilt from her youth. An adequate chest of drawers guarded the new
partition. Although small, the room gave every appearance of an old attic and
certainly the space would be enough for the short amount of time she would need
it. The only thing out of place was the half-window at the end of the
unfinished wall. Ally laughed out loud at the sheetrock, nailed and taped, but
wanted to know if it was a mirror image of hers.

his room was an exact duplicate in reverse, including the odd-looking
half-window at the end of the new wall. Except his side didnâ€™t even have the
sheetrock; only wall studs with the back of her roomâ€™s sheetrock to separate
the two spaces. His dresser was also standing against the partition, but a
different style than hers, and his bed was covered in a faded quilt of the
American flag. Altogether, the whole room appeared terribly small for someone
