Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.
Philippians 4: 4-8

Review: Outlaw Marshall by Al & Joanna Lacy
This was a very good book, the first of the new series Return of the Stranger. It was one that I had to force myself to put down to get things done. I am looking forward to reading the other books in the series and will have to go back and read the books of the first series Journeys of the Stranger Series and the Angel of Mercy Series, although this is not necessary to understand this series. The authors did a great job of making sure that you did not have to read the first series to enjoy this one. But I feel captivated to read more about the main characters of John and Breanna Brockman.
Here is some more info about the book: A good deed grants outlaw Whipley Langford early release from prison and a friendship with Chief U.S. Marshal John Brockman. Another good deed gets Whip framed for murder and looking at life through a hangman’s noose. John arrives just in time to reveal the true murderers and lead Whip to Christ.
A new man and a fast draw, Whip becomes Brockman’s deputy. Life is still fast and dangerous, and there’s a pretty lady Whip would like to get to know better too. Before he admits his love, Whip is shot in a bank robbery. Survival looks slim until he awakens to hear his lady confess her love. Weeks later, they are married.
Readers who are familiar with the Journeys of the Stranger and Angel of Mercy series reunite with well-loved characters John and Breanna Brockman. Western history buffs will enjoy a wholesome, fast-paced story where the Gospel is presented clearly. Christian readers will learn how to lean on the Lord in times of trial and non-Christians will have the opportunity to make Christ their Savior.

Hello, thank you for visiting my blog. I am a happily married woman with four beautiful blessings, who just happen to know how to make lots of noise - mostly joyful but sometimes NOT. I home school my Kindergartner as well as my pre-schooler. I like to consider myself as a joyful noise, however, sometimes I too can become a hurt in other's ears. I am a Christian and love the Lord, serving him and others - again hopefully - with joy. I love spending time with my family and my friends whenever I get the chance.
