In My Mailbox Monday: August 8

In my Mailbox Mondayoriginates from two blogs:  Checkout Mailboxmonday and The Story Siren.  I am using it to highlight any books that come into my house the previous week, whether they are from the library, from a store, from a friend or actually in the mailbox.
 
(I like to pick different and interesting mailboxes to use for the picture, what do you think of this one?)

I haven't posted a mailbox monday in a long time, so I have tons of new books.  I received book in the mail and got a few ebooks last week as well. The book I got in the mail was A Confident Heart by Renee Swope.  Renee is a part of Proverbs 31 Ministries with Lysa Terkeurst.  Check out her blog here, or visit the Proverbs 31 homepage for lots of great info!  Here's a description of the book from Renee's website:  Chapter by chapter, A Confident Heart will help you: Learn to fail forward even when life or sin sets you back;  Live confidently in your God-given purpose, passion, and personality; Break free from people-pleasing and performance-based living;  Exchange “against me” thoughts with scripture-based God is “for me” thoughts; Trust the certainty of God’s promises in the uncertainty of your circumstances and emotions.  Powerful scripture-based prayers are at the end of each chapter, along with Bible study questions and a chart with thirty-one different promises to overcome our most common self-doubts.  
The e-galleys I received from Netgalley are Raising a Daughter after God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George, Light from a Distant Star by Mary McGarry Morris, and Lone Star Trail by Darlene Franklin.  I am a big fan of NetGalley!!
