Why I have a Fishing Theme on a Christian Living Blog

Matthew 4:19

New King James Version (NKJV)

19 Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

The reason I picked this theme for my blog is because I liked the look. I love the way the colors look and the animation of the fish and whales. Then I thought this would be a great theme for my Bible2Blog site because of this scripture, Matthew 4:19.

Sweet Sanctuary – a Book Review

Sweet Sanctuary By Sheila Walsh & Cindy Martinusen Coloma
A Book Review by Monica Lehua
This is a story of a single mother, Wren, which I kept wondering why she has an unusual name and if it was short for something else, which prevented my brain from getting a better picture from the beginning of this librarian who is raising her son Charlie in a small town in Maine. Her struggles with Charlie’s father, a new man who she keeps running into, how to deal with a career and family and learning to rely on God.
My Impressions
I wanted to read a good piece of Christian fiction and haven’t really read much fiction, except that I was looking to be motivated or inspired. What better way to pick a book but by the name of the author. Although I only know Sheila Walsh as a Christian singing artist, I have seen that she also writes books and speaks at Women of Faith Conferences, of which I attended my first WoF conference last year but Ms. Walsh wasn’t one of the speakers.
The book was okay, it started slow and I kept hoping that something about the story would draw me into it as other books have where I couldn’t put them down. Sweet Sanctuary’s characters didn’t seem to develop enough of a history to allow me into their world; the main character was okay, just that, okay. The supporting characters just seemed to be there, without much depth.
I was hoping that with the experience of Ms. Walsh’s coauthor, that the story would be more interesting and that the Biblical truths would be expanded into something I could apply to my life. But honestly, I got a little bored and at times it was a chore to read.
I never want to tell someone not to read something, unless it the Biblical Fiction had a problem with its theology. This was a book that didn’t challenge me and for that I give it 3 stars – basically the story line was okay, if it were a made-for-TV movie I would watch it and hope that the characters would have more depth in that media. I would pass on it if it were offered to me again.
