    I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review so...I honestly loved this book. "Those who stand for nothing will fall for everything."I've fallen in love over the Baxter Family in the twenty-some books that I have read. This one was a great new edition addressing a controversial issue in today's society. How should one address God in public? Karen Kingsbury answers that question with a captivating story that fans are going ...

    At its core, Kingsbury's latest is an interesting story about the modern climate of religious freedom in the United States. However, one has to muddle through some factual inaccuracies and heavy-handed preaching of doom and gloom in order to find the key ideas. Although this is a part of the Baxter series, it easily stands alone because the Baxters are only peripheral characters, and the author makes sure to delineate the myriad family ties multi...

    I enjoyed the characters--both Wendell Quinn and catching up with the Baxters. I've worked in education 16 years, so I found several things unrealistic, but overall, it was a quick read on an interesting topic. I received this book in exchange for my review. My thoughts are my own.

    I have worked my way through the entire 20-something books in the Baxter series this year with anticipation of getting to this one. Only to be disappointed. The story felt forced and feature too little Baxter family. It seemed like such a let down after enjoying the early years of this series. *I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.*

    In This Moment is part of the Baxter Family series. There are like 25 or 26 Baxter books before this but whose counting. You don't have to read all the previous books about the Baxter family to know what is going on. The author takes several pages in the beginning to give you a brief history of the Baxters and who is married to who. This book was not really about the Baxters although some of the Baxters were in it. The author's favorite Baxter As...

    This was such a sweet, powerful, and important story and I loved every second of it. It was well written, had a very important message, and the characters were so filled with faith and love.I loved the message in this book. Now days, everybody fears offending someone so we don’t discuss God or Jesus in public. In this book, people actually thought that it was illegal to mention God in public. I fear that this is the way things will go if someth...

    Kingsbury books are so real they feel like they could be happening in my hometown or to people I know. This really adds to the tension and drama. I could empathize with Alicia and her fear of what would happen if Wendell went ahead with his plan. The same challenges raised in the book are occurring with more frequency in our country. It made me appreciate Wendell and his willingness to proceed, believing that God, who called him to this, would be...

    In the day and age of fighting for rights, including those of the right to practice Christianity, Karen Kingsbury writes a powerful book as part of the Baxter Family series.Just as things today are so tenuous regarding activities that “offend” people, this book surrounds that subject when a high school principal of an Indianapolis high school decides to try to do something to help the students of his school. This school has become known for g...

    I won this book through GoodReads First Read program.This world we live in is becoming more and more anti-Christian each day. The book addresses the difference between freedom of religion (which is in the Constitution) and the freedom from religion (which appears to be the interpretation of the Constitution by most Americans and the courts. Wendell Quinn is the principal at Hamilton High School which is in Indianapolis. Drop out rates are high, g...

    I was sent this book in a giveaway to review, and i'm so happy\ to have \ won it! Karen Kingsbury is one of my favorite authors. She creates novels that are page turners, inspirational, and heartbreaking; In This Moment was no exception! In this Moment follows high school principal, Wendall Quinn, and his attempt to change Hamilton High School with the hope that can only come from God. Principal Quinn finds himself in hot waters as he is sued for...

    Karen Kingsbury never fails to give you things to stretch your faith and In This Moment is no exception. She reminds us not to take our family nor freedoms for granted. With a husband who works long hours, many out of town, I can sympathize with Reagan's struggle and desires. I love how she, along with the rest of the Baxter's, stand on their faith. They're a great example of how a Godly family can encourage one another.Although I enjoyed the bul...

    Always a fabulous story, i would love to see this one become a movie.I live in a small town, and I can hear the elementary school kids say the Pledge every morning, because 2 are chosen to lead it over the intercom, which feeds to the outside. I admit, I have been a little hazy on whether or not it was allowable to read your Bible at school, or any of the First Amendment rights where school was concerned. I felt since I lived in a small town most...

    I’m so excited about the new Baxter books Karen Kingsbury is writing. In This Moment is such a timely book even though it’s fiction. I look at all our Freedoms being taken little by little and cringe. This story is about Wendell a High School Principal who has a school where the kids were failing in many ways, some dying, some to drugs and alcohol, teen pregnancies and bad grades. He decided he had to try something. He began a program called ...

    I won a free copy of this through Goodreads Giveaways. Here is my honest opinion. This fiction book tells the story of a Christian school principal who is taken to court with a lawsuit against him for starting a voluntary Bible club at a public school. There are also bits of drama and romance woven into this book as well. It was an interesting and enjoyable read. I won't tell anymore, because I don't want to spoil the plot. This is part of the Ba...

    Kingsbury is a well known Christian author and writes touching stories about Christian values and beliefs and relates them to current toipcs or society challenges. I find the writing to get a bit over the top from a religious perspective, but this story flowed well and touched on the topic of bible study in a school setting.

    Wonderful story by Karen Kingsbury! Very emotional, get your tissues ready! I won this book through Good Reads and so happy I did! Quick easy read but emotional, hard to put down. The Baxter Family are featured in this book but the story really centers around another new family that the reader will fall in love with and route for. Great Book! Great thought provoking plot, Great characters.
