The One Who Gives Life: The Celebrate Lit Blog Tour and Giveaway of Two Rivers

  About the Book Book:  Two Rivers Author: Michael W. Henry Genre:  Fiction Release Date: April 10, 2020 In 1840 Pastor Allen Hartman leaves behind his white-steepled church in New York, and the woman he hopes to marry, to serve as a missionary to Indians in the Oregon Territory. On his epic westward journey, he is plunged into the dark end of spiritual warfare and vital intercession. His mettle is further tested when he’s asked to stay in a village of Arapaho already contending with a malevolent witch doctor—where Allen has to draw upon courage he didn’t know he possessed and discovers ministering to Indians is not at all what he imagined. Arapaho medicine man Two Rivers knows one thing—the Great Spirit is sending White Falcon to help his people defeat the malicious spiritual forces determined to overpower the tribe. But even as White Falcon teams up with Two Rivers, Allen finds himself enslaved in a cave and in a heaven-meets-earth clash of faith with an evil sorcerer. Wit

Update: Not Going to College?

Hello everybody! I hope everyone is doing well. I'm just giving a quick update on my life. As the title of this blog post implies, I am not going off to college. At least, I'm not going to be on a college campus for this fall semester. Trinity Christian made the decision a couple weeks ago to go fully online-only students who need to be on campus will be on campus. And since that does not apply to me, I am doing my classes remotely. It was disappointing to get the news, but I am going to try to make the most of it. And I'm crossing my fingers that the campus will be open for spring semester.  So what am I doing for my fall semester? My plans aren't fully set in stone, but I hope to be doing something fun. Once the plans are set, I will make another update to let you all know. And yes, it does have something to do with writing. I am very excited about it!  So, in one week, I'll have my (virtual) transfer orientation, and that will kick off my junior year of college!

Review of Katherine’s Arrangement by Blossom Turner

       Katherine’s Arrangement is about a young girl who decides to enter an arranged marriage with a wealthy man. In exchange, the man will provide for her poor family. But will the two be able to love each other and forgive one another for their mistakes? Or was the marriage a bad decision that might have ruined both of their lives-forever? I’m going to be honest here that when I started reading this book, I thought it was going to be your typical Christian romance story-which, to be honest, I’m not overly fond of that genre. But as I continued to read the book, I realized that this story was different. And I should have never doubted the author-especially after reading her previous book, Anna’s Secret. Katherine’s Arrangement is filled with heartache and pain. It emphasizes that marriages aren’t perfect-and they really require patience and love to work. The characters in the book make mistakes, and Josiah and Katherine are blinded by uncertainty, anger, hurt-and ultimately, sin.

If she wins the show, she will receive a cash prize, an agent
