My review for book 1, Texas Roads
My review for book 4, Pilgrimage of Promise


Author Bio:
The author of the inspirational and popular Miller's Creek novels, Cathy Bryant writes heart-stirring stories of life-changing grace. Her first novel, Texas Roads, was a 2009 ACFW Genesis contest finalist and tells of one woman's quest to find home. The second stand-alone novel in the series is A Path Less Traveled, which follows the theme of trusting God to direct our paths. The Way of Grace follows a flawed perfectionist whose fall from perfection lands her in an ocean of grace. Cathy currently resides in the Ozarks with her husband of over thirty years, but will soon make her home in the foothills of the Rockies. You can learn more about Cathy and her books at www.CatBryant.com.


REVIEW:
I already love all the other Miller's Creek novels, but this one gets my favorite vote, hands down! It was like the others in the series and yet, completely different too. The others seemed to be more romance-focused, but this book was that and also much more suspenseful than the previous ones. At times, it felt like I was reading a thriller, though not once did the author swear or use profane terms to get the point across. It didn't even get gory or graphic, but the point was taken. Cathy stayed true to her Christian side throughout the book. I really feel like this book taught me all about forgiveness and why getting retribution or revenge is not the answer.It was a lesson I knew already, but the author creatively makes you question your ideals on forgiveness and if in those times you have really forgiven someone. It's so easy to say you have, but when you look in retrospect you may see you really didn't forgive at all but just pushed it all down. Pushing that resentment and hurt down doesn't help anyone, and this story is a perfect example of that.
Love this series and I definitely recommend reading it!


5/5

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.
