Wakulla Book Review: Get on Board and Stay on Board, by Pearl Nsiah-Kumi




“Get On Board and Stay On Board” is a book of short simple writings and poems that share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The book is divided into three sections: a) Jesus is Calling; b) Saved, Now What? c) Special Days.

Jesus Is Calling - is directed to the unsaved. These writings are straight forward and simple. Pearl is very blunt and direct in sharing her faith, yet comes across as caring and concerned. Her passion for Jesus and witnessing to the unsaved is very refreshing and encouraging.

Saved, Now What? – is geared toward helping the newly saved babes in Christ to grow in their relationship with God. Pearl does an excellent job of encouraging the new believer. These writings share what we’ve been saved from, what we’ve been given, and what we should do in response. Pearl gives instruction on day-to-day life as a Christian, in simple, easy to understand language.

Special Days – is a small section in which Pearl talks about the reasons we as Christians should be celebrating and thanking God for all He has done and provided for us. It is very informative and easy to understand.

Overall, Get On Board And Stay On Board is a well written work. Pearl has been blessed with a gift of sharing in a simple, easy- to- understand way. I find the book to be informative and refreshing. I recommend it to anyone who has any questions at all about the Christian life and the salvation found in Jesus Christ.

Wakulla Book Review: Two-Up, Riding With the Lord, by Barbara A. Derksen

Here is a small book filled with a host of short stories of agonizing hard points to ponder and overcome. In the majority of the stories that Ms. Derksen writes about, most generally compensate and get with the program. 

Ms. Derksen writes about real people in an engaging way, and she writes about some that could possibly not make their way to heaven. Sad but true.

With each person of the 62 addressed and touched on within this book, I believe they are healed and protected by God. This book brought out a few real life excursions, a few of my own bad choices, but also a few of the good things I have done in my life—along with a few tears given out for the good times plus a few given out for the dumb things that I have done. 

Yes, I have done a few really dumb things, but God has also forgiven me for them. Come, Lord Jesus, Come!

My review:

Crating 30 different species of God’s creatures out of pipe cleaners, clothespins, googly eyes, paper plates and paint was never so much fun. Recommended to go along with the Vacation Bible School or even Sunday school Curriculum, Adam’s Animals, Kimberley Payne and Kristen Sheppard-Payne offer a fun-filled book of clear directions and pictures of easy to create animals, from Bizarre Bat to Fancy Fish using an old CD, to Handsome Horse and Wild Wolf built around a child’s footprint, a few simple supplies turns into an afternoon of fun at home or the babysitter or grandma’s house.

Wakulla Book Review: Straight Pipes, by Barbara Ann Derksen



Whether you’re just an affiliated club member, patch wearer, or you just ride for fun, you’ll soon be blowing your pipes for Jesus. This devotion takes the hard learned principles of the Holy Bible and not only makes them practical but applicable as well. The vernacular of a little known society is used fluidly and in a way that is easily related to by the biker.

The book teaches evangelism techniques to a people who are seldonly understood and are more or less tolerated, as well as gives perfect examples of how to follow through.


I loved it. I was reminded of the society I was once associated with and the feel of this devotional can easily give you a picture of Jesus on a motorcycle headed across the country spreading His Good News. –  Jaxon, inmate, Wakulla Correctional Institution, FLA
