Buried Beneath the Words by Betel Arnold REVIEW

Buried Beneath the Words

Words! Words! Words! Words all over the place... We don't always realize how powerful words are, or how we've come to accept the words other people have used to describe us. Accusing, blaming, and degrading words are the worst of all. After hearing those words over and over again, we begin to feel the weight of them threatening to crush the very life out of us. Buried Beneath the Words cleverly shares a true life story about the different ways someone can end up buried beneath the weight of negative words. Then it shares a Christian course for how God's word can revive us. By putting the advice given within these pages into practice, you will experience an awakening of the real you -- the you that has been buried way too long.

This was a wonderfully refreshing book of encouragement that was not only relatable but easy to understand and read, great for any generation and either sex needing good solid and sound advise. Anyone dealing with verbal abuse or feeling attacked by someones words will find solace in this book. Betel Arnold makes her book easy to read as well as easy to relate, especially from a females standpoint with helping others through challenging and dark times by telling her own story of dark times and using God's Word to finding herself and happiness. 

I recommend this book.

The Mason Jar by James Russell Lingerfelt REVIEW

The Mason Jar

What if your old college roommate called, raving about a book someone sent her, calling it the most beautiful book she’s ever read? “But,” she said, “it’s about you.” The author is your college ex.

In The Mason Jar, Clayton Fincannon is a Tennessee farm boy raised at the feet of his grandfather. He and his grandfather leave letters for each other in a Mason jar on his grandfather’s desk; letters of counsel and affirmation. When Clayton attends college in Southern California, he meets and falls in love with a dark, debutante, named Savannah. However, when an unmentioned past resurrects in her life and she leaves, Clayton is left with unanswered questions.

Clayton goes on to serve as a missionary in Africa, while he and his grandfather continue their tradition of writing letters. When Clayton returns home five years later to bury his grandfather, he searches for answers pertaining to the loss of the young woman he once loved. Little does Clayton know, the answers await him in the broken Mason jar.

A story about a girl who vanished, a former love who wrote a book about her and a reunion they never imagined.


This was such a sweet and one of a kind love stories with twists I hoped for and did not expect. Their young love ended under disputable reasons, leaving the one wondering why the estrangement. I love the story behind the mason jar between the grandson and grandfather especially. The plot is unique and different..yet the characters are realistic and relateable. 
It was sad when the grandson leaves for an honorable trip and comes back to bury his grandfather. But during this time the grandson searches for the answers for why Savannah left.  In the end, all the answers he needs are in the famous mason jar.

I highly recommend this book. It was a delightful read that I think would make for a great movie.
