Book Review - Angels Walking Series

     The Angels Walking Series is captivating from the start.  Have you ever wondered if you have met an angel before?  If you have, you will truly enjoy the Angels Walking Series.
The series takes you behind the scenes and shows you what the jobs of angels might be like.  







Angels Walking is the first novel in this series written by Karen Kingsbury.      The relationship between Tyler Ames and Sami Dawson is torn apart when Tyler makes it to the big leagues.  Fame costs him everything he loved.  Can the angels complete their mission they have been assigned or is all lost? 


 

 Chasing Sunsets is the second in this series written by Karen Kingsbury.
Travel the road with Mary Catherine as she is determined to understand and find meaning in her life.







 Brush of Wings is the final book in the Angels Walking Series. 
Be inspired by true faith and trusting God as Mary Catherine faces life or death. 



I hope you enjoy this series as much as I did!




Until next time,


Xoxo, Natalie

My Inspiration....

Inspiration really is everywhere.

     The other day, as I was flipping through my Vineyard Vines Summer 2016 catalog, I came across a gentlemen named Bradley Johnson.  I found his story so inspiring, that I decided to share it with all of you!

     If you have been following me for awhile, you would have seen my post  about my chronic illnesses that I choose to share back in February.  It is still one of my most viewed posts to this day.  Like Bradley Johnson, I too choose not to let my limitations stop me.

     Bradley Johnson could have chosen to feel sorry for himself, and who couldn't blame him.  Instead, he chose to excel in life not only as an attorney, but also, as a three time Paralympian in the sport of sailing.  He is the first African American to represent the United States in sailing and bring back a medal.  His positive attitude has allowed his disability to not hinder him in life.


     What Bradley Johnson said brought a smile to my face, and made my heart happy!!  He said, "My objective was to get my life as close to normal as I knew it--and I've surpassed that beyond my wildest dreams."  What amazing gentlemen with an awesome testimony.

     I am so thankful that even though I do not feel well many days, I still chose to get out of bed and conquer the day.  Thank you Bradley Johnson for sharing your story with Vineyard Vines.  Your testimony inspires me!  :)


 Watch his video below!





Until next time,


Xoxo, Natalie
