Canadian Baptists of Western Canada
Thank you to those who have purchased a book directly from me. In 2016 I sent the CBWC (Canadian Baptists of Western Canada) $335. I will continue to give $2 per book from my personal sales to the CBWC ministry of helping Syrian refugee families. The CBWC is a federally approved Sponsorship Agreement Holder (SAH) to sponsor refugees and they continue to be involved in this humanitarian cause.
The French Collection - Moments with God in Paris
Reviewer - Cheryl Colwell
***** Five Star Review on Amazon.com (format - kindle edition)
What an enjoyable read. Kim's adventures reminded me of my time in Italy. While travelling alone, we can make any choice we want, but sometimes there are too many choices.
I love that Kim took the time to reflect and collect those special moments when God grew close and whispered to her. With no one else to lean on, it becomes a special time of drawing close to the God who is really there.
The descriptions of the sites she visited ramped up my desire to visit France all the more. This book is well-written and personal, a combination I thoroughly enjoyed.
Reviewer: Armig Adourian
I love Paris and I love God-not necessarily in that order. While it isn't
necessary to love Paris before reading this book (it is quite likely the author's
love for Paris will infect the reader anyway), it is obvious the author loves
I was drawn to this collection because I wanted to walk with the author
in Paris and see how God revealed Himself there. And I was not
disappointed. It was as though I was walking with a funny, creative,
thoughtful friend who not only has right words at the right moment but
is also a knowledgeable tour guide. So much so that readers may want
more detail around facts mentioned in the book than what is provided in
the notes section at the back.
If you have a friend thinking about going to Paris, be sure to give
them this collection. It may even help with their trip planning. As for me,
I scarce believe this is the author's first book. I look forward to other
collections by Kim Louise Clarke. Vive The French Collection!
Reviewer - Jane Daly
I thoroughly enjoyed travelling the streets of Paris with Ms. Clarke. She wove in timeless truths from God's word using real-life examples from her observations of Parisian life. For instance, she tells of trying to cross a busy intersection after misreading the signal. "My mistake had been in looking at a signal too far ahead. Looking too far into the distance can be a problem. Focusing on the wrong thing way up ahead means that the things in between are often missed."
This book is wonderful as a devotional, or for anyone who would like to experience Paris without the cost of a plane ticket.
