Where do you turn when you can’t figure out how to deal with life? The Rescue by Pastor Jim Cymbala of the Brooklyn Tabernacle in Brooklyn, New York presents seven ordinary people and their stories of overcoming the despair in their lives by turning themselves over to the Most High God! These stories will lift you up and give you peace! One of my favorite quotes from the book really sums it up, ” I used to think you had to be in good shape to come to God. But now I realize that we all come broken.” Reading these stories will warm your heart and heal your mind! I recommend this book to everyone!

One Lucky Cowboy by Carolyn Brown

Jane Day rolls into North Texas on a Greyhound bus and ends up getting a job at a local ranch. Nellie Luckadeau takes Jane in to be a cook and helper at the Luckadeau ranch. Her grandson, Slade, is sure that his grandmother Nellie has made a big mistake in hiring Jane. He’s afraid that Jane is a drifter, thief, or just a dishonest person. Jane is really running away from her ex-fiance and stepfather who had a devious plan that was uncovered literally right before the wedding. Now Jane has to stay in hiding and can’t divulge anything from her past, no matter what. I really enjoyed the first half of the book but I got a little tired of the bantering between Jane and Slade and their crazy scheme to put her in hiding. Good story that really was weakened at the end.
