Another series! #ScriptureSunday
This morning I had this passage come into my mind while I was at church. As a 26 year old, I see all my friends getting married and having babies which I would love to do. This passage reminds me that if I just trust God that everything will fall into place and God will keep me from things that danger me.
“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only look with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place— the Most High, who is my refuge— no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the adder; the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot. “Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name. When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.””Psalms 91:1-16 ESV
I have decided to create a new series about 1 ultimate find of the week. This series will be something that I feel is the best thing that I could of have received, attended, found, etc. I hope y’all enjoy this as much as I will enjoy creating them!
This week, my ultimate find is something that I had wanted to do for a long time, but was never able to do until this past week. My favorite author came to a city that was only an hour away from where I lived and I got to go see her and her family for FREE! I would have paid to see her because it was such a fun time, but was also happy that I got to bring my parents along for a fun night that wasn’t expensive.
Now for the story about how Karen Kingsbury became my favorite author!
When I was in high school, I absolutely LOVED books and reading! A person I care about always says that you shouldn’t say you love something unless you are willing to give your life for it. Let’s just say that I would give my life for my book collection that I have in my room. My books are my babies! Back to the story… My mom also has a love for books which is most likely where I get it from. 🙂 Her boss at the time decided to loan a book series to my Mom by Karen Kingsbury. The series was called the Redemption series and I didn’t know if I would like it or not. We owned 1 book by Karen Kingsbury which was the first book of the 9/11 series that she wrote and I hadn’t read it yet. These books were different from what I normally read, but when my Mom said that these books were really good, I decided to start reading them. That was one of the best decisions I have ever made. These books were also based out of my hometown, Bloomington, Indiana! Go Hoosiers! 🙂 I have read most of her books and still have a few more to read, but they are so good so it shouldn’t be too much longer before I have read every one of her books! She just knows how to make you feel as if you are right there in the room with each one of her characters. If you have not read one of her books, go read “Redemption” right now! You will not regret it.
Last week, I seen a post on Karen Kingsbury’s Facebook page that said to email her because she was giving out free tickets to her family tour. I emailed them for 2 tickets so my Mom and I could go. She ended up giving me another ticket so my Dad went with us as well. This event was amazing! Karen is a great speaker and I could have just listened to her speak the whole time, but I enjoyed everyone else as well. Karen’s son Tyler and son-in-love, Kyle, started off the event by leading worship. They did a great job! Then Karen talked for a while and told some really great stories about her family. They even showed some home movies! Karen said at the beginning she wanted everyone to feel as if they were a part of her family and I definitely felt like it. The event continued with Kelsey and Kyle, Karen’s daughter and son-in-love talking about their book “The Chase” which I did a review on. This book was amazing and their love story is one for the books. I really believe that girls should chase God and not guys which is what the book is all about. After Kyle and Kelsey finished, Karen’s adopted son Sean gave his testimony about how he was adopted from Haiti. This was very touching. They gave an intermission and I kept thinking, “Yay! There’s more!”. Kyle started off the second half my giving us a concert. I first found Kyle’s music when he was in Anthem Lights. He was awesome and when he went solo, I listened to every song that he put out. He has such a clear, strong voice! I took a lot of videos and posted some on Instagram. On Monday, I got a notification that I had been tagged in a comment by Kyle Kupecky. He had reposted all 3 of the videos that I had posted! My inner geek was coming out! I love to sing and listen to music so when an artist reposts my videos or pictures I get very excited!
By the way, Kyle Kupecky, if you ever read this, I would love to sing a duet with you. 🙂
Back to my story…
Karen came back on stage after Kyle finished and talked more about her books and how “Brush of Wings”, her newest book is being spread around the US through jails and other places. She told many funny stories and we laughed a lot. Funny fact: she told us that laughter is the only thing that exercises our liver! I had never hurt that before, but every time I laugh that is what I think about! Karen ended the night by reading an excerpt from her book and then the family came out on stage and sang “Oceans” together. It was a great ending to a fabulous night.
Overall, we had a great time going to this event. My Dad even enjoyed it! If I could go to every Karen Kingsbury event, I would! I would even work for her if I had the chance! Luckily, I am part of her street team called “Team KK” which is great to be apart of!

Cassidy was looking for a home and a place to belong . . . not for a cowboy to steal her heart. Having lived through her parents’ endless string of “matrimonial bliss gone wrong,” Cassidy Starr knows when the odds are not in her favor. Divorced and humiliated, her faith on rocky ground, Cassidy is through with love. She’s been bucked off that horse far too many times. Instead, she returns to Wishing Springs, Texas, and the rundown farm she’s inherited from her great aunt Roxie. She’ll reopen the strawberry farm and a bed & breakfast and follow in her aunt’s footsteps, remaining forever-independent, happy . . . and single. Rancher Jarrod Monahan’s hands are full running the ranch, looking after his ailing grandfather, and chasing down a group of rustlers on the loose. He’s pushed his longing for a family to the bottom of his list of priorities. Besides, he was in love once but ran scared and lost his shot at happiness. But suddenly, the biggest regret of his life has moved in next door with a wounded heart, determined to become a spinster . . . and that’s a challenge that Jarrod can’t pass up.
This book is so good! I just finished it and decided to go ahead and write my review.
Cassidy Starr is a stubborn red head who doesn’t want to relive her past. Jarrod Monahan is a handsome cowboy who lives next door. Jarrod kissed Cassidy a long time ago and then ran and Cassidy just got through a divorce. These 2 characters were great staples in this wonderful romance novel by Debra Clopton.
What drew me to this book was the cover. A few horses and a handsome cowboy kissing a girl made me want to read this book and I mean, who wouldn’t with a title like “Kissing a Cowboy”! I have always liked books that have to do with Cowboys and horses and this one was no different. While I was reading, it was like I was taken to a different world. I love when a book can take me out of my current situation and transport me to someone else’s story. I want to feel as though it is a movie in my head. This book did that from the first page. I felt as though I could see every laugh, cry, heartache, and lovely moment that happened throughout this book. The story between Jarrod and Cassidy made me root for them as much as if I knew this couple. There were a few twists in the story which made it more fun to read.
I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars. I received this book in exchange for my honest review form Booklook Bloggers.
