The Stream Refreshing Hearts & Minds Renewing Freedom’s Blessings By James Robison I love the cover blue is a calming refreshing color and it being water is even more calming to me. I can feel the cool water and the bubbles really a unique cover with the bubbles and water on the back of the cover too. I love chapter 21 America and the Poor Luke 10:30-37 it’s about the Good Samaritan one of God’s commandments is care for the poor, for widows, and for orphans. Jesus loved and cared deeply for the poor. In both the Old and New Testaments it says the poor NOT the lazy that doesn’t want to work but have everything handed to them even God dislikes the lazy. There is a difference but our government seems to give to the illegal NOT the poor, they give to the lazy not the citizens that want jobs and to work but also need a little help while looking for jobs they get nothing. I love the way James says we need to trust more in God then money, or other people. Our country is being destroyed by lust, greed, addictions, idolatry. James doesn’t say this but I do our government is getting out of control greedy for more money for them and less and less for the command people. The people in government wants more and more power and to take over like some of the other countries have done to their people (Ezekiel 16:49-50) it’s about Sodom and Gomorrah greed, not helping the poor, this is a good read. I love the way James explains parables in the Bible it really can help you understand those parables better. This book will refresh your hearts and minds and renew your life. I recommend this book highly for anyone who loves the Lord and wants to understand and go deeper in the words of the bible. I received this beautiful book free from Worthy Publishing for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else’s. Thank you Worthy for a great book. 5 Stars ISBN 9781617957581

The Drawing Lesson A Graphic Novel That Teaches You How To Draw By Mark Crilley I love the cover of this cute book. The boy is enthusiastic about his drawings as he lays on the floor with his drawings all around him and a smile on his face. I am amazed at adults and children that can draw and make the picture look so real that you feel like you are right there. I really like the story of how Becky shows David how different ways to hold the pencil makes the picture look different. Becky gets a little upset with David being pushy. David learns so fast because he did ok drawings before I am not that good at drawing anything so I was hoping this book would help, I tried one picture and thought I’d try again later (it wasn’t good let me tell you). The book goes along with showing you how to draw with pencils. The book shows the way David drew a picture and what Becky found wrong with it and then Becky explaining what is wrong and why and what David should look at in order to change the way David sees the object to make him draw a better picture. The book is really interesting and will help some that already has some drawing that’s ok I am not sure it will help me but I am going to go back and try again later. I recommend this book for people that want to try and draw and see if it will really help you in learning some techniques that you never knew. I received this book free from bloggingforbooks for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review only an honest one. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else’s. 4 Stars ISBN 978-0-385-34633-7

http://www.booksamillion.com/p/Go-Big-Home/Scotty-Mccreery/9780310345220?id=5826426027671 Go Big Or Go Home The Journey Toward The Dream By Scotty McCreery The cover of the books are the first thing I ever look at sometimes I just pick the book by its cover that started as a joke between me and a good friend and I have found a lot of great reads that way. I love this cover as Scotty’s eyes seem to talk to you about the confidence he has and something even deeper, which you have to find out by reading his story and what gives him the confidence he has. I’ll be very honest with you I do not watch American Idol I only watched it a few times like 3 maybe because I felt if you were a Christian that was strike no. one against you, my opinion. But Scotty’s idol was Elvis and Elvis was mine so I had to get this book to read, he’s not bad if Elvis is his idol! To find out Scotty sings country I love country. I love most music but heavy medal or rap that is not music to me!! To top the charts for me is Z88.3 I love Christian music first, oldies and country. Scotty is humble you’ll find that out as you read through his book. His faith did waver at all and God seems to come first which puts him right at the top along with Tim Tebow. I love the fact he stands by his faith, his principles and his family roots. For such a young man to stand up to station managers or even stars that are popular and sing different kinds of songs when they felt he made a mistake Scotty kept hearing God’s voice and followed and obey the voice that was more important to him the any famous person, hey for Scotty I say!! Go man, Go!! I also loved the fact that he came out and apologized for not standing up for a young boy for being dropped from the group. That showed where his heart truly was, because God wants Christian to stand up for what is right. I also like the fact that Scotty didn’t feel comfortable singing a song that was totally against all he believed in again I praise Scotty for standing up for what his faith is all about. I recommend this book if you want to read a good humble Christian young man’s story. I received this book from booklookbloggers free for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else’s. 5 Stars ISBN 978-0-310-34522-0

Words To Live By One Word A Week 52 Ordinary Words That Lead To an Extraordinary Life By: Linda J Gilden & Dalene V. Parker The cover is kind of plain but the words caught my eyes and I knew I wanted to read this book to help me lead a better life for God not for man. These words will be an integral part of your Faith and Strength. I don’t know about you but I need to have strength every day, and I pray to God to give me the strength I need to live the Faith I want to have for God. We can’t depend on our leaders as we use to be able to. As you have seen the mess we’ve been in for the past 8 years and it is only growing worse by the day with these kinds of politician in office. They are crooked and even the FBI is proven that Clintons have one set of laws while use common people have another set of laws to live by. We need to pray and have faith that God will once again bless America and make us a great nation and put in the right President in 2017. We need God back in our country, in our schools, so this book was very important for me to read and to know how positive, powerful words for my mind, my faith to keep me uplifted and inspired to be stronger. I need strength from God to get me through this terrible mess that is taking over our country. As I read through this beautiful book I found that with extra ordinary thinking, listening and speaking God’s truth to his people that are hungry for something and searching for the truth they will no longer fall for Satan’s lies. I loved to read the “Roadside Help” about a Good Samaritan and using the gift God gave him. There’s a question: Do we have a gift we could use over and over again to help others?” Words are powerful— they can either destroy a person or build them up. Here are a few words from the 52 word list: Listen, Believe, Learn, and Persevere. Then she gives a description of the word for you. Then stories to help you think of others and how you can put into action for yourself. These are words to change your life and make you stronger in faith. I recommend this book for those who truly want to be stronger in their faith, have a positive mind set, if you know words of God you are prepared for any condition that comes along. I will keep this book handy and go back to often and refresh my mind, soul and spirit. I received this beautiful book free from Worthy Publishing for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else’s. Thanks Worthy for a great book. 5 Stars ISBN: 978161795722

ADD TO CART American Woman’s Bible Women, Godly Virtues, and the Making of America By: DR. Richard G. Lee, General Editor Forward by: Penny Nance I do love the cover of this beautiful Bible, more so I love the fact that if you tear the paper cover gets ruined you are in luck because the Bible it’s self has the same pictures on the front what a nice addition!!! It’s really a neat cover I love it!! I was excited when I got home and opened the box that held this beautiful Bible. I couldn’t wait to dig into it, the first paged I opened was Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Biography what an amazing woman she was. Rose lived along life and the life she led showed the hand God hold us and God’s faith never fails. Rosa would take faith over anything even money she guard it most. President J. F. Kennedy was called the Camelot because under his leadership our nation knew peace and contentment. This Bible has so many different women that helped shape and give God grounding in our country and they were Blacks, Whites and Native American all ages some very wealthy ladies, some poor, some slaves, and some made to live on reservations (even though this was their land first). In this Bible you will see these women and the struggles they went through to change a country they loved, you’ll read in faithfulness, Hope, Truth and a lot more from quotes from other women or poems. I learned the names of a lot of these women that shaped this country and how they helped shape USA but also I found out their back ground and the struggles of a lot of them but also some of the wealthy women that gave of their money, their time and their smart way to do things. I recommend this Bible highly. I so enjoyed the addition of the women that shaped American. That they had a strong will but above all they had God on their side, you can’t go wrong if God is there with you. I received this Bible free from book look for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions I have expressed is entirely my own and no one else’s. 5 Stars ISBN 978-0-7180-7631-3

PRAYING THE PROMISES OF JESUS Seeing His Word Come True for You and Those You Love By: Rick Stedman As you travel through the pages of this very insightful book you’ll see the different promises Jesus made to us-yes He made promises of an everlasting life to us. The people that cursed Him, denied Him and we turned our backs on Him—But once we turn our lives around and come to Him, we’ll know a new way of a forever life. Here’s Randy Acorn’s helpful way to illustrate this reality .Time on Earth (from time born to time you die) .>Time in Heaven (is forever). This helped me to have a picture in my mind how about you? Joshua 24:15 As for me and my house hold, we will serve the Lord. Other topics that’s great reads are: What Will Heaven Be Like? What Will We Be Like In Heaven? I loved the way Paul wrote and described our bodies of earth and our bodies of Heaven. This last topic is a very fascinating to talk on and do further study also. There are all kinds of verses to go to in the Bible and read on subjects of interest. I am so blessed to have been able to receive this beautiful book to review. I recommend it highly if you are truly interested in praying the promises of Jesus because this book will help you do just that pray for the promises from Jesus. This is one book I will have to go to when I need to refresh my memory on Jesus promises to me. I received this book free from Harvest House for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else’s. I pray you find the prayer you need for the promise you have from Jesus. 5 Stars ISBN 978-0-7369-6071-7
