Kristin wanted to be able to connect with people. She didn’t know how to go about how to doing it. Kristin went to a conference in her home town of Austin, Texas. There were several Speakers but when the lights shown on Jo Saxton she had a British accent, she delivered a line that changed everything. As Kristin listened, Kristin finally asked God “I can’t be what I can’t see, so show me!” The answer came at an unexpected place. Kristin started to feel like she had purposes for her life now as her heart started to change. There are recipes for your gathering with neighbors; she gives good ideas of different things to do throughout this beautiful book. The stories she tells throughout this book are really worth buying this book just for the stories. I recommend this book highly. I put the ISBN No. so it is easier for you to tell a worker at the store and they can help you locate books faster. I received this beautiful book free from Booklookblogger 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 978-0-7180-9558-1

Radical Spirit 12 Ways To Live A Free And Authentic Life By: Joan Chittister I really had a hard time getting into this book so I truly have to tell you I didn’t read it all the way through. Sorry I thought this would be a book I could just read and ponder on but I had a hard time getting into it. It took me a long time to read very far so my review may not be the best again I am sorry for not getting further into the book. I know there are 3 segments that helped Joan she tells the segments in the introduction part of her book. Maybe you will find them helpful. As you go on the journey with Joan as she helps you find your quest for new freedom and wisdom. You’ll read of the spiritual seekers that the soul has many masters. Apostle Paul says “People are slaves to whatever masters them.” For example anger, addiction, and fear then try to break the chains to whatever it is. We know it is ongoing every day of every minute. I believed if I could have had more time I might have been able to get into it or maybe I just am not as fast at understanding as you are. Again I think it could be a good book if I just had a little more time. Enjoy it I am sure you will love it. Joan is a good author. I put the ISBN to help you find the book faster. I received this book from bloggingforbooks for an honest review I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one.

Vibrant India Fresh Vegetarian Recipe By: Chitra Agrawal The food on the cover looks good enough to eat and the vegetables are bright and colorful. The back of the cover is just as pretty. I’m the type of person that has a hard time trying food from other countries unless I know the person cooking it. I don’t like spicy foods so no matter what country it is from I won’t eat it. This all vegetables recipes so I may be ok with this kind of foods to try at a restaurant. The shredded carrots and lentil salad looks great. There are a lot of pictures in this book that is colorful and looks good. Vegetarians would love this book. In the front of the book it has a list of recipes also tells where to buy ingredients and equipment. I am not sure if the ingredients come in bulk or if you can buy just a little to see if you like them. I love the history of her family, her city. Chitra brings a new meaning to vegetables that are for sure. I received this book free from blogging for books 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. 4 Stars ISBN 978-1-60774-734-5

A Selfish Plan to Change the World A Selfish Plan To Change The World Find bigger Purpose In Big Problems By: Justin Dillon Justin Dillon is a musician this for starters makes you wonder how in the world he plans to selfish change the world. Well if you read the Bible you see God uses the most unlikely people to help Him with His plan to glorify His name. A lot of times I don’t read the introductions to the book because I want to dig right in to the book. Really take time to read the introduction I did for whatever reason and I was so glad I did, it’s very interesting!! We all cry out we want meaning and hope in this fallen world of ours. We as Christians know we can call out to God for anything and He is there for us. Mr. Dillon tells how we can find what our soul cries out for do you want to be a doer or a talker? Some of us get scared if we go out of our comfort zone. So read this book and see how Dillon will show you “if you give you surely will gain”. The story on page 13 brought me to tears and I thanked God for helping raise my two children. In my heart I know He helped watch over my two beautiful children which are adults now. If you ask yourself how did the world get this way and why wasn’t something done, then this book is for you. See the problems and solutions through brand new eyes as Justin takes on a whole new journey in a selfish plan to change our world. I recommend this book highly. I received this beautiful book free from Booklookblogger for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest review.

David Jeremiah Morning and Evening Devotions Holy Moments in the Presents of God The cover is so beautiful with the cattails, birds and the flowers embossed Golden letters of the title and the back cover just as pretty and makes it a calm book to look at on both sides. I love the fact that he has written the scripture on top of all the pages first and he gives you where he got it out of the bible so you can check your bible along side of what he wrote at top of page, he then writes a story for the morning time for you to read and think about, then one for evening time. To be honest I thought I could pick out one or two that I really liked and say “hey this one is the best” but I couldn’t do that because I feel in love with the book and David’s writings is so good I just loved reading a lot of them no I didn’t get through this thick book (maybe that is what took me so long in getting this reviewed). I never went with dates (sorry) I’d sit down and whatever one I opened to I read and it seemed to fit that day and evening prefect. As you read through this beautiful book of Holy Moments in the Presence of God, these are collections of meditations these devotions will equip you to live with God’s perspective as you commit your time to being with God you will find that life will be richer then you ever imagined. I recommend this devotional highly. I feel you will truly be blessed with this book. I received this book free from book look for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just and honest review. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else’s. 5 Stars ISBN 978-0-7180-9261-0
