I am new to watercolor & this is the first book that I’ve read on the subject.

This book is full of valuable information & positive encouragement. Leslie writes clearly and with enthusiasm. There is a short reading for everyday of a year, grouped by topic. Illustrations include some of her watercolor artwork. This is a book that could be used as a textbook for home school purposes.

More Than Words. How to Move from Believing to Following.

Eric Ballard

CrossLink Publishing 2013

paperback, 80 pages

The Lord said in the Book of Isaiah, “These people say they are mine. They honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. And their worship of me is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote.” It’s time for your faith to become More Than Words.

More Than Words is Eric’s first book and it is a beneficial “how to” resource for maturing Christians. A wise read for those who seek a deeper relationship with God. Eric gives practical advice on applying God’s word to our daily life based on scripture. Each chapter is structured around select verses. The book is divided into 6 sessions as follows:

Spending Time with Jesus

God Requires Sacrifice

Learning to Surrender

Sharing Jesus

Serving Others

Making Disciples

Each section is made up of 3 chapters, or days, to explore a topic. Time, Sacrifice, Et cetera. Each chapter ends with thought questions such as “So What?” and “Now What?”. The book is written for group use but it can be just as beneficial for individual study. Suitable even for teen readers. Enjoy reading a sample chapter on Eric’s website and Amazon.
