Five Years Later

Five years ago today I published my first blog post on Homemade Ministry.

It's amazing to me to watch and see what God has done not just in the blogging world, but in many other areas of my life.

In recent years I haven't blogged so much. Life and many adventures have prevented me from blogging regularly.

I'm happy to say that God has grown and shaped me so much in the last five years. When I think back to that 18-year-old who had so many big dreams and hopes, I smile. She had no idea how God was preparing to not only fulfill her dreams, but change  her to be more like Himself.

It's been a wonderful and exciting journey. As I enter this next phase of my life, I would like to get back into the habit of blogging. I miss posting thoughts and happenings for us all to share.

Looking back I can see all the amazing and awesome things that God has done for me. Looking forward I know He will continue to be faithful and guide me.

See you again soon, Rose

The Holy Bible: Audiobook Review

I received this book courtesy of Christian Audio for the purpose of writing a review. 

Narrator Thoughts: To be honest I found this narrator rather flat. His voice was very rich and deep. Perfect for reading the Bible. Yet his voice lacked the emotion and beauty found in the scriptures. I will give him that his voice was very nice and kept me listening for a while. Maybe it was just me, but I felt like it left some to be desired. 

Book Thoughts: Obviously it goes without saying that I am a deeply devoted Christian and as such, the Bible is very precious to me. I enjoy audio Bibles, but this one didn't measure up to some of the others that I have read. For me one of the things that makes any audio Bible is the music and sound effects. Two things that were sadly lacking in this audio Bible. It felt like there was something missing. The narrator was fairly good, but on the whole I felt it lacked quite a bit.
