Gearing up for LDS General Conference- Free E Books

04 Oct, 2013 by in Uncategorized 4 comments

I generally do not blog or tweet much from Fire and Ice on Saturday or Sunday. Those are days to devote completely to my family. However, the first weekend in April and October of every year you will notice that my twitter feed @fireicephotos is filled with quotes along with the hashtag #ldsconf.
Twice a year we gather as a church to listen to talks from inspired leaders and  I get together with my family to listen to a living prophet. I’m a Mormon. I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- Day Saints. My beliefs make me who I am, a believer. A Christian. I’m not perfect– far from it; but I’m trying to be a little bit better of a person each day. 
I hope if you’ve never learned anything about the “Mormons” that someday you will ask a member or stop the missionaries (the guys and gals with the black name tags usually walking or on bikes) and ask more or I invite you to listen or watch LDS conference starting tomorrow, Saturday October 5, 2013 at 10 AM MDT.
 Conference will streamed live HERE .
In preparation, or to learn more, here are some of the E books available for free download. Also check out the amazing collection of inspiring videos here.
Enjoy General Conference, your weekend, your family and friends.

 Love you all.

Genre: Historical fiction, romance
5 stars

Keturah fought her way into the army, but now she’s in Judea building fortifications, and the only thing she’s fought so far is boredom. The work is hard, and the other soldiers don’t think she can pull her weight. Her brothers are becoming strangers, and Zeke’s jealousy is getting worse – because Keturah is falling in love with the wrong warr


But she’s not about to let cruel pranks and hurt feelings keep her from doing what she knows to be right. She completes every order with faithfulness – a hasty retreat from the Lamanite army, a spy mission into the enemy stronghold, a midnight assassination. From burying the dead to whiling away hours on guard duty, Keturah will do whatever it takes to protect her religion, her freedom, her peace, and her family.

But in a camp of two thousand boys, the most important thing she has to protect is her heart.

Fight For You is the second novel in Misty Moncur’s Stripling Warrior series. Fall in love with these romantic novels set against a vivid Book of Mormon backdrop.


Review: 
Wow. Misty Moncur knows how to write! The second book in her Stripling Warrior Series is unforgettable. I’ve read over the war chapter in the Book of Mormon, I know the stories, but never have I seen them come to life in vivid color with emotions, romance and action. 

Keturah has entered the band of stripling warriors, boys ages 12-18 who are fighting for the liberty of their fathers, children, homes and religion. Kit is is a daughter of Helaman, the only female to join the ranks. And this is no longer training with Gideon in the forest or sparring with her camp…this is the real battlefield and the ravages of war. Amongst the action there are moments of clarity and faith that stirred the Spirit within me and made me so grateful for the fortitude of leaders like Gideon. Men who not only led and loved, but who also knelt in prayer before going out to meet the enemy. They did not doubt their God would deliver them and angels sent to fight beside them.

There are stolen moments of a love that is deepening and blooming like a moon flower.The tension is perfect. Kit has some hard decisions to make. Is she meant to be here? Will the man she loves return the commitment as a husband? And, will Zeke forgive her, can she accept the loyalty and attention of her childhood friend? 

I enjoyed the idea of healers who used herbs and the things of the earth traveling with the army to help. 

Wishing book three, which is due to be released in November were out today so I could keep reading. I’ll be passing the Stripling Warrior series on to my children and family. And, I will never read about the Title of Liberty or Helaman’s army the same again. 

Content: moderate war related violence, kissing 

About the Author: Misty Moncur wanted to be Indiana Jones when she grew up. Instead, she became an author and has her adventures at home. In her jammies. With her imagination. And pens that she keeps running dry.

Misty lives in a marsh near a very salty lake in Utah with her husband and children, where they cuddle up in the evenings and read their Kindles. Well, she does anyway.
