About

Me10

Captive Dreams Window began as a blog primarily devoted to life. Now, I mainly do book reviews, however on occasion, I will provide a thought provoking post.

I am a prolific and AVID reader and love to blog/review books I’ve read. These books have been graciously provided free in exchange for my review. I generally review Christian books. Periodically I am asked to review other books.

I am a grandma who is constantly searching GOD’S will for her life with help from her family plus a constant large menagerie of pets. Ever striving and frequently failing, we want to become “buddies” with the Lord.

JEREMIAH 29:11

Love my family and Christ!

  2. Jeremiah 29:11 is one of my key verses. It’s kept my head above water on many occasions.

    Sixty times! Wow. We’d only moved 26. That was bad enough. Of course since 18, (and before 36) I’ve moved that many more times. Happy to say that we’ve been in the same house now for 16 years! It took a long time to quit getting the urge to move again!

    Thanks for stopping by and following Lessons by Heart!

    May the Lord bless your work here.
    In Christ,

CS/Kindle link on site to my poetry book will let you read a few for free; don’t know how to get you a free one.

      Glad to meet you. My hubs is retired military. I stumbled onto your blog through another one, I must share with you what happened.
      It was about 3 AM and as per my usual MO, I couldn’t sleep and I needed to be up EARLY AM! I read another blog and saw your response and clicked over.
      It had to be a God thing as we’ve been struggling with a 16 year old car not working properly and when you mentioned the coil pack-a giant light bulb went off in my head! That’s what’s wrong with the car!
      So, not only do I have a new blog to follow (one that I enjoy) but I also found the answer that kept eluding me about the car.
      Looking forward to reading your poems.
      Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving.
      God’s blessings to you and your wife!

      • Thanks Robbie! I have not done a Q and A, but that is a good idea. On my blog, I did give a “little” advertisement. At Amazon, there is a short description and customer reviews, including Ellie’s above (she is an amazing woman of God!). Here is a copy of the introduction:

        “He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6).

        Great confidence gripped the Apostle Paul as he thought and prayed for the body of Christ. Paul guaranteed the believers that God would consider them “blameless” when Christ returns. This guarantee was not because of their great gifts or shining performance, but because of what Jesus Christ had accomplished in them through His death and resurrection.

        As with the Philippians, God will help you grow in grace until He has completed His work in your life. It is God’s work, not yours, so there is no question about the outcome. God’s work “for” you began when Christ died on the cross in your place. His work “in” you began when you first believed. Now the Holy Spirit is living in you, enabling you to be more like Christ every day. The God who began a good work in you continues it throughout your lifetime and will finish it when you meet Him face to face.

        I do not know where you are on your personal spiritual journey. Perhaps you are exhausted and spent. Maybe you have recently experienced significant growth, or you may have settled on a comfortable plateau because of an uncertain future. But I do know this: God wants you to enjoy and complete the journey! He has pledged Himself to finish the good work He began in you at salvation and will keep you strong until the end.

        “Back to the Basics” is not a lofty theological work, nor is it an academic commentary. Instead, I have prepared a friendly, easy-to-use help system for every believer. This practical and easy-to-apply book will show you how to put God’s Word to work in your daily life. This book will enhance your understanding of the way life was meant to be lived.

        As believers, our desire is to follow the Lord more closely and to understand His Word for maximum impact in our lives. The book you are holding was not written to take the place of personal Bible study, but is a companion and compilation of the scriptural principles I have learned and applied to my own life. It is not exhaustive, but sheds light on many issues Christians are facing today.

        It is divided into two major categories: Daily Living and Doctrine. Each section has topics you will find interesting, inspiring, stimulating, and refreshing. I suggest you read it according to your current need or interest. If you want to know how to live as a child of God in your practical day-to-day affairs, then read the section on “Daily Living.” If you want a better grasp on the fundamentals of your faith, then study the section on “Doctrine.”

        If you are feeling discouraged, remember God won’t give up on you. If you are feeling incomplete, unfinished, or distressed by your shortcomings, remember God’s promise and provision. Don’t let your present condition rob you of the joy of knowing Christ or keep you from growing closer to Him. God will most certainly continue on to completion the good work He began in you!

        God bless!
