If I Run FitBit Giveaway!

If I Run

Casey knows the truth. But it won’t set her free.

Casey Cox’s DNA is all over the crime scene. There’s no use talking to police; they have failed her abysmally before. She has to flee before she’s arrested . . . or worse. The truth doesn’t matter anymore.

But what is the truth? That’s the question haunting Dylan Roberts, the war-weary veteran hired to find Casey. PTSD has marked him damaged goods, but bringing Casey back can redeem him. Though the crime scene seems to tell the whole story, details of the murder aren’t adding up. Casey Cox doesn’t fit the profile of a killer. But are Dylan’s skewed perceptions keeping him from being objective? If she isn’t guilty, why did she run?

Unraveling her past and the evidence that condemns her will take more time than he has, but as Dylan’s damaged soul intersects with hers, he is faced with two choices. The girl who occupies his every thought is a psychopathic killer . . . or a selfless hero. And the truth could be the most deadly weapon yet.

My Thoughts:

I absolutely LOVE Terri! Her books always thrill, chill and keep me guessing. If I Run was sooo good I could not stop reading! I LOVED the way this story is told. I love how Terri melds together the lives of the two characters. Can you imagine being wanted for the death of your BF? Wow! This story kept me trying to figure out who was on the side of truth and who was trying to keep the truth from being revealed. If you love well-written suspense, do not miss this!

The Daniel Plan:

40 Days to a Healthier Life

Unlike the thousands of other books on the market, this book is not about a new diet, guilt-driven gym sessions, or shame-driven fasts. The Daniel Plan shows you how the powerful combination of faith, fitness, food, focus, and friends will change your health forever, transforming you in the most head-turning way imaginably—from the inside out.

LEARN MORE HERE

So I picked back up my old copy of The Daniel Plan because I am really ready to dedicate myself to building a healthier life for me and my family. This book is practical and just makes sense. I am sharing all of my nutrition and fitness pics over on my Instagram- you can find me HERE to see them!

Lazarus Awakening

Journey to the Tomb of Lazarus…and Hear Jesus Call Your Name

Mary worshiped. Martha served. But what did Lazarus do to experience Jesus’s lavish love?

Filmed in the Holy Land, this DVD companion to Joanna Weaver’s book Lazarus Awakening explores the incredible truth that Jesus loves us apart from our works or our worthiness. He wants to call us out of our tombs and into friendship with Him.

Designed for use with the book and companion study guide, this three-disc DVD Bible study is formatted for both individual and group use, with content suitable for both men and women.
·         In-depth Bible study: Features eight 15- to 17-minute video sessions.
·         Bonus “Israel Moment” videos explore the life of Christ and the Holy Land.
·         Designed for use with the study guide and book.
·         Leader’s guide, promotional material, and retreat format included.

 

MY REVIEW:

I loved this study so much! If you are looking for something to utilize to draw you closer to the heart of God, this study is for you! I especially loved the DVD portion. I’m a visual learner and I love that this study included the video aspect. It really helps learners delve even deeper into the time and place this Bible story occurred.

The message this study really spoke to my heart is that God loved me, He wants me, He desires relationship with me- not because of my goodness, not because I’ve earned it but simply because He is Who He is.

The study can be done alone or in a group. Highly recommend!

FOREVER DOON: Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon

With the witch of Doon on the throne, Jamie believed dead, and Duncan and Mackenna trapped in Alloway, Veronica has no choice but to put her grief aside and prepare her remaining followers for the impending battle against the false queen and her forces. But while on a covert mission to steal a powerful elixir from the castle, Veronica discovers her true love may actually be alive, and fighting a battle of his own.

With the Brig o’ Doon destroyed and the portal fragmented, Doon’s forces are not only divided, but also isolated in different dimensions. With the help of a storyteller as ancient as the witch herself, Kenna and Duncan learn they must rebuild the bridge to have any chance of crossing back into Doon with their ragtag army. But when Mackenna insists on fighting as well, Duncan soon realizes the only way he can ensure her safety is to turn her into a cold-hearted killer.

For Vee, Jamie, Kenna, and Duncan, saving their kingdom while keeping their lives intact will take a miracle.

I LOVE this series!!! Shades of Doon picks up right where Destined for Doon (Book 2) left us. Once again a lot is happening in the girls lives and in Doon. Strange things are happening and the girls think they know who is behind it all. Betrayal, separation, change and mayhem are just a few things that take place in this book. And once again we are left in total anticipation of the next book in the series! Get in on this one y’all because this is one series you don’t want to miss!

Top 10 Bookish Resolutions for 2016

 This week, we are all sharing our bookish resolutions for 2016!
Here are mine…
#10 USE MY E-READER MORE:
Now that I am a full-time college student and working a full-time job, time is of the essence! Reading books on my tablet is so much more convenient. Plus, I don’t have to tote around all those books everywhere I go and I can switch from one book to another with the click of a button! Why do I never use my e-reader!?! This year…I will!
#9 FINALLY FINISH THAT SERIES:
I am the world’s worst at this! I find a series I love and then I DO NOT FINISH THE SERIES. I’m not sure if it’s because I don’t what the story to end/ don’t want to be disappointed by the ending or if I’m just plain lazy!
#8 READ 16 BOOKS IN 2016:
Probably one of the lowest reading goals I have ever set for myself. However, I want to be realistic with my schedule and I feel like this is the right number for this year.
#7 READ WHAT “I” WANT TO READ:
Because my reading goal is low, I plan to be very picky this year about what books I read. I want my reading to be fun. I want to read what makes me happy, scared, inspired…whatever.
#6 POST AN UPDATE VIDEO ON MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL AND FIGURE OUT HOW TO POST REGULARLY:
It’s so sad y’all. I want to get back into making videos over at JoJo’s Corner
#5 WRITE:
In 2014 I completed my first novel through a competition with Harlequin called “Killer Voices”. I made it to the final round of competitions and had to submit my complete novel to my editor. While I was not offered a book contract at that time, she did send me some edits and asked me to resubmit. I did that and I haven’t heard back. This year, I want to contact my editor and see if this could really still be a possibility OR if I need to move on and start writing something fresh and new. Either way, publishing is a dream of mine and this year I want to make real progress in making this happen.
#4 UPDATE THE LOOK OF MY BOOK BLOG:
This one can already be marked off the list. I was wanting something new and fresh for 2016…what do y’all think?
#3 READ BOOKS I OWN BEFORE BUYING MORE:
My name is JoJo and I have a book-buying addiction. There are so many great books on my shelf at home and I really want to read more of those this year.  (FINGERS-CROSSED)
#2 WATCH MORE BOOK-TUBE:
Because, let’s be real…a resolution to watch less just isn’t going to happen, no matter how much it takes away from my own reading time.
#1 READ THROUGH THE ENTIRE BIBLE (AGAIN):
This is a goal I really like to set for myself. Sadly, many people who are Christians have never read the entire Bible. I was one of those people and the Lord really started convicting me about it. In as little as 15 minutes a day, I can read through all 66 books in 1 year. I’m excited about this goal!
