Guide Your Mind Guard Your Heart Grace Your Tongue by Carol Burton McLeod with a giveaway

About the Book

Title: Guide your Mind, Guard your Heart, Grace your Tongue

Author: Carol Burton McLeod

Genre: Non-Fiction, Christian Living

Release Date: April 3, 2018

Every single one of us with a beating heart has spoken words “under the influence” of warped feelings and slurred thinking. And we soon wish we had the magical power to take those words back. We especially regret the hurtful words we have spoken to those we love the most and know the best. This book may just be the solution.

Carol McLeod reveals that before the words are spoken, they brew in our hearts and are formed in our minds. It’s our thoughts and emotions that determine what words come out of our mouths. Guide Your Mind, Guard Your Heart, Grace Your Tongue is an innovative blueprint that will enable you to take control of your thoughts and feelings in order to grace your tongue. You won’t find pat answers here, but rather powerful strategies based on the Word of God to reroute disordered thinking and cure rotten emotions so your words can be humbly grateful instead of grumbly hateful.

The Golden Vial by Thomas Locke

If you enjoy fantasies with elves, humans and dragons you will so enjoy this book. This is Book three in the Legends of the Realm series. You don’t have to read books 1 and 2 to understand this one but if they are as good as this one then you should read them. Dally is a wonderful character who is full of magic that she doesn’t understand. She helps to save this world. I received a copy of this book from Revell for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

I give this a five out of five stars.

Dally is a woman who lost her family in an attack on her homeland. She is able to communicate with animals and later finds she can communicate with people she has never met. Lady Shona must save her land and seeks out the enemy by attacking them head-on. The realm of Hyam is overcome by a mysterious illness known as the wasting disease that has no cure. Dally’s abilities become the only hope for Hyam. She alone could mean the difference between victory and defeat.

A Borrowed Dream by Amanda Cabot

This was a wonderful story. I loved the secret that Austin Goddard has. I was fascinated that there was plastic surgery that was being done in the 1880’s. Catherine was a great character also. I can’t wait for the next book in this series. This is a greT western historical romance with that bit of suspense. I received a copy of this book from Revell for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

I give this a five out of five stars.

Catherine Whitfield is Cimarron Creek’s dutiful schoolteacher, resigned to a life without love or family. She has a justifiable mistrust of all physicians since a previous treatment killed her mother.  Austin Goddard moves to Cimarron Creek and poses as a rancher to protect his daughter from a dangerous criminal. He has been hiding the fact that he’s a doctor until his medical skills are needed. When he gets to know Catherine, he begins to wonder how long he can keep his secret.

Father Divine’s Bikes by Steve Bassett

This is a book about kids and gangsters. This takes place in Newark during the end of WWll. Most people are having a hard time making a living and their children are trying to get paper routes to bring in some much needed cash. There is a bit of bad language but this was how they talked at that time. I was a little confused at times as to who some of the characters were and how they fit in the story but it really pulls you in. You have to find out what happens to everybody. I received a copy of this book from Smith Publicity for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

I give this a four out of five stars.

FATHER DIVINE’S BIKES exposes the dark underbelly of 1945 Newark, New Jersey; a city that boomed during World War II but finds itself unable to cope with the peace that brings joblessness, despair and crime. As deeply-entrenched white enclaves are squeezed by the mass migration of blacks, escape routes for poor ethnic whites rapidly close. Two Catholic altar boys living in a world ripe for grifters, like Father Divine, soon learn that his promise of heaven on earth has hellish consequences. In the autumn of 1945, a battle erupts when the city’s competing mobs end their truce. When it gets bloody, other criminal forces poise to move in. Black bookies, using Father Divine’s controversial International Peace Mission Movement as a front, recruit Joey Bancik and Richie Maxwell to run numbers under the guise of newspaper routes. The boys’ families welcome the few bucks they can put on the table. Meanwhile, their parish priest and two homicide detectives fear the numbers racket will entrap the boys in a world of crime. Turf wars, murders, and a corrupt police department in bed with the mob form a dark and gritty backdrop against a story of post-war Newark and the violence that permeated it.

This is the first time I have read a book by J.E. Grace. I hope to read more by her. I enjoyed the story even though the beginning was a little unbelievable for me. I really liked the characters. This does try to show you to remember that you need to give your life to God. I received a copy of this book from Celebratelit for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

I give this a four out of five stars.

Guest Post from J.E. Grace

My inspiration for writing A Walk with Heavenly Spirits:

I was thinking about a Christmas Carol and the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future one day. I’m a Christian author, so I thought, why not use Heavenly Spirits to enlighten a person who has lost their way. It just evolved from there. I did a lot of praying for direction during my writing process and consulting God’s word along the way.

I feel God was giving me the inspiration to write it. I found myself getting very emotional while writing certain parts of the book which is something I had never experienced before with any of my other novels. I was feeling the characters pain and /or joy at times.

My purpose for the story was to get the message across, that we are all broken, but God uses the broken for great things. Within the story, Allison’s one decision to finally follow the path God intended for her, not only changes her life but the lives of the all the people who come to know her.

Judah’s Wife by Angela Hunt

Again Angela Hunt takes a person from the Bible and makes them real. I did not want to put this book down. I needed to know how these people might have lived there lives for God. Leah finally gets away from her abusive father and then marries a man who has to fight to get freedom for his people. This would be hard to handle for anyone. I received a copy of this book from Bethany House for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

I give this a five out of five stars.

A story of the courageous Maccabees told through the eyes of Judah’s wife Leah.

Having grown up with a cruel father, Leah yearns for a future of peace, safety, and protection. When she marries Judah Maccabee a strong and gentle man, she feels she can rest. The king issues a decree requiring all Jews to conform to Greek laws, customs, and religion. Devout Jews surrender their lives under torture than disobey the Law of Moses to worship Greek gods. Judah’s father dies because he won’t surrender to the king’s laws. Before he dies, he commands Judah to continue the fight. Leah struggles with her husband’s decision.

Dead as a Doornail by Tonya Kappes

This is the fifth book in the Kenni Lowry mystery series and just a lot of fun. There are a lot of laughs throughout this story. I love Kenni and Finn. It is also fun with the ghost. The mysteries are well done and the characters are all great. You just live the small town through these people. I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

I give this a five out of five stars.

Beauty is skin deep, but ugly goes clear to the bone. And doesn’t our Sheriff Kenni Lowry know that? Well, she knows a lot of things. Lucy Lowell takes great pride in writing negative reviews in the local newspaper for anything that does not go her way. When Lucy is found dead, it appears to be from natural causes. But Sheriff Kenni Lowry knows there is more to it because the ghost of her grandfather, the ex-sheriff, is standing over the body. His presence can only mean one thing: Murder! Since Kenni’s relationship with Deputy Finn Vincent has heated up, Kenni is having trouble conducting the investigation without Finn questioning her every move. Can Kenni unravel the mystery on her own or will she have to tell Finn the real reason she knows it was murder–the ghost of her poppa? It’s blowin’ up a storm and only Kenni knows how it’ll end. – – – – – – –
