The Call of a Coward- Booksneeze


When the Moston Family hear the call from God they pack up their typical American home and find themselves driving along the atrocious life defying roads of Guartamla.

They hope to work hard and make a difference to bring the love of God to the Mayan people in a world with no telephones Internet or even a reliable postal service. But as we know the bible has no boundaries it cannot reach.

After packing up and moving to Guartalma no one is more surprised than the family to find themselves heading back to the US in less than a year. Weak from a severe bound of hepatitis and disillusioned from life the family cross the border and fall back into their old life with such a familiarity that Marcia wonders what it had all been about.

Had God planned for this to happen? How can she be expected to live Guartamla behind her how can she rid her heart of this unfinished feeling.

Turning to God she prays to return to Guartalma and finish what they started. So when her brother asks them to come to Vermont to help grow a small rural church she is sure that this isn’t in the plan. So in a challenge to God she ironically stated that if I hear a Spanish speaking person in Vermont I know this is where you are calling me. So after the visit she is sure that its not for her but like always God has the bigger plan and when the last person they meet greets them in Spanish she knows her plan is his.

This is one amazing book that shows the depth of courage and faith the Moston family have and also even when we think we know the plans God has for us we can be genuinely be surprised.

This is book that I recommend whole heartily, It is well written in a wonderful manner that takes you along with the family on their courageous journey.

Daily Gifts of Grace – Book- sneeze review.

Again I have been lucky enough to receive a book from book-sneeze to review. I love that I get to combine my passion of reading and writing.


I review for BookSneeze®

Anyway to the book in question,


Daily Gifts of Grace, devotions for each day of your year. Authored by the Women of Faith. Published by Thomas Nelson.

Contributors include Joni Eareckson Tada, Lisa Whelchel, Jenna Lucado, Sheila Walsh, Kim Cash Tate, Patsy Clairmont, Natalie Grant, Lisa Harper, and others.

My first impression of  this book was that presentation wise it is simply stunning. The beauty of the cover design and the layout really wowed me. It was like a little treasure trove just waiting for me to open.


The content of the book is exactly what it states it to be, daily devotional stories from members of the Woman in faith team. They are real life feelings and thoughts and stories which are uplifting and inspirational.


It is a book that I would gladly give as a gift as a gentle reminder for women that God is good and even when life throws you things that are hard to face, God is by your side. 


 A book filled with daily moments of grace. It gives you a moment of reflection and a chance to take five minutes out from the daily chaos we call life.


It is a easy read book which at times did make you think but  its not for serious devotional time or bible time  as for me I feel it doesn’t go deep enough. 


So in conclusion, Daily gifts is a beautiful book that  offers a gentle reminder of God’s amazing grace.
