    Book | The Nightingale

    I'm not a huge fan of novels or fiction books, but I think The Nightingale may have changed that for me. I could not put it down. On the night I finished reading the book, I was in the bed, wiping tears from my eyes as I finished the last pages, not wanting it to end. If you're looking for a good book to read this summer, this is it. Be prepared to not want to put it down.

    All in all, this book has given me the gift of perspective. And for that, I'm so grateful.

Serene and Scripturally Sound

As a new subscriber, listening to my first episode,” What I’ve learned about Fear”, was so calming and scripturally sound, that I can’t wait to hear more. You can sense her love for the Lord, heart for her family, and passion for others. People will follow those who know where they are going, and Nancy Ray seems to be clear in her conviction to follow the Lord. Press on Nancy! 👍🏽👍🏽

Such positivity and natural connection with Jesus

First, Nancy has such a soothing voice, I could listen to her speak all day long. Second, I admire her relationship with God and how she speaks about him and prayer to get her through her life. There hasn’t been a podcast episode that I’ve listened to, that couldn’t be applied to some part of my life. Her encouraging words makes me as a born again child of God want to be better, to be closer to the Lord and to lean on him for my every need. Thank you Nancy for sharing on this platform and openly talking about the Lord...so refreshing.
