Fearless by Max Lucado

Fearless by Max Lucado is another watered down book that doesn’t go much deeper than the surface. There are a lot of good things said in this book, don’t get me wrong. It most certainly isn’t horrible, but I’m afraid that what people need is a deeper message – one that touches the heart of readers because it comes from the heart of God.

The message behind Fearless is a very good one. Simply: fear less. And not only fear less, but have faith – faith in God. This is absolutely correct, but I don’t think it does a good job at preparing the reading for the difficulties of having faith, and it doesn’t give enough scripture to encourage the reader to hold strong even when things “feel” terrible.

Overall I give this book three stars. It does have a lot of good, positive things in it, but in my opinion, it’s missing a lot too. I think that people need to remember that the Bible should always be our number resource for answers, and not other books.

Thrifty In Arkansas

I love reading blogs about saving money and stretching your dollar. But one thing I've really hated about reading all these amazing blogs is that I have to sort out all the deals for stores that are not local to me. So I thought, "if I want a blog that will work for me, why not write it myself?" So this is for me and you! I want Arkansans to take advantage of lots of money saving opportunities they might not always have time to research.

I won't promise to deliver every deal, and I won't promise that every post will pertain to you...but I'll do my best to let you know how to save money. Because a penny saved is a penny earned.
