A warm welcome to everyone

Happy Valley by Lin Stepp is a wonderful one
contemporary Christian novel. It's part of the Mountain Home series, but it can be
read as independent.

I always adore Lin Stepp's novels when they are packaged
around me like a cozy blanket on a cold day. The characters are nice and
Caring, healthy with big hearts that are community-oriented.

The reader doesn't see how important it is
judge by appearance. The Lord looks at the heart. We should be more too
deals with the state of our heart as the state of our clothing.

A character runs within the novel
from their past. Secrets are kept and hearts closed to stay safe.
When a crack of light shines into a heart, a character has to decide whether to do it
open up and be vulnerable or continue to carry the burden of the past and
risk future happiness.

The characters go on hikes within the novel.
This can be seen as a motive for our life – sometimes it is the road we drive on
smooth, sometimes the journey takes us up the hill or down into the
Valleys, or sometimes we can't see the way ahead. We have to trust God
take us through all the levels of
Life journey.

We will always
need god. He is as close to us as we want him to be. "He often felt the need
for faith and aspired. "When we reach for him, God bends closer to us.

The love of money is at the root of all evil.
There is nothing wrong with having money when we are wise stewards and live with them
open hands and a generous heart. We cannot allow our money to take control and be
the boss of us because then we'll be on a downward trend.

There is a wonderful community atmosphere that
covers the whole novel. The reader is warmly welcomed. Lin Stepp registered
so that we feel that we have "lived" the novel instead of reading it.

I adored Happy
Tal and am sad to leave my new friends behind.

I want to leave you with my favorite quote:

You just need a touch from Jesus too
Have a lot of fun."

I got this book for free. A positive rating was not required and all views expressed are my own.
