Penny Watkins

Reviewer Penny Watkins: Penny is a Registered Nurse and specializes in Clinical Informatics. She is also a wife, mom, grandma, activist, coffee lover, cat owner and book addict. Faith and family are her priorities and reading is her second favorite activity. (Sleeping is #1--in my spare time.) She agrees with Margaret Mead: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

Every Christian leader will benefit from reading this book


Author: Reneau Peurifoy MA.
ISBN: 978-0-929437-16-3

In his most recent book, Reneau Peurifoy sheds much-needed light on the problem of human emotion. He brings a rational blend of theology and scientific psychology to explain why God gave us emotions.

The Last Word is exceptional. The characters come off as real people living in the real world, trying to figure how to live life as a Christian. They don’t always get it “right.” They make mistakes, deceive themselves and others, make harsh judgments, live in denial, think ugly thoughts and do sinful things

Gifts of the Heart, by Karen Boes Oman, is a treasure. It’s a wonderful story about giving rather than getting

Cohen has a great story to tell in his first novel. As his writing matures, I believe we will see some very good literature from him. Cohen is not a John Grisham or a Jane Austen.

This is a book about home design, but not the way we usually think of it. Yes, we want to create a beautiful space, but Comfort Living goes beyond that. It shows how to create a safe and nurturing space, a place where we and our families can simply be, a sanctuary in the midst of very busy lives

St Nick is an interesting twist on a familiar old tale. It’s worth reading even if only to remind us that the future is not predetermined and that change is always possible.

The Blue Umbrella (and the books that will follow it) is an excellent example of the genre. Kids will enjoy the series immensely, and so will their parents
