Reviews

thanks again, TriciaG


(5 stars)

Lord, may I be a patient and Godly a mother.... 'blessed are the humble for they shall be exalted" whoooooo Ruth shows us the value of humility. has she taken matters into her own hand, in her own time, the families would have been destroyed... the affects of their lives in the community and generations would have been completely changed for the worse. I continually pray for Holy Duct Tape over my mouth. :-)

(3 stars)

Pansy had a broad imagination that sometimes feels like a little too much. I wouldn’t say this book had as much depth as some of her other ones.


(5 stars)

I really enjoy the pansy stories. They make me laugh and cry and they inspire me to be a better Christian!

a bit much

if it is the actual story or if it's the tone in which it is read!
