What A Difference Two Weeks Makes!

Two weeks ago I was stressing and praying and stressing some more. Stress and prayer are pretty much polar opposites!! If you are going to stress over a situation then why pray and if you PRAY OVER THAT SITUATION why stress it?!?! I never claimed to be perfect and to have it all together, or to be solid in the face of adversary. I have fears and anxiety like any other person, so much so that the below post was written! HOWEVER Here I am 2 WEEKS later to tell you that no matter what storm you are in the midst of GOD IS THERE! No matter what it looks like, feels like, or appears to be GOD GOT THIS!

Two Weeks ago, for BlaqueBerry (an online magazine) I wrote.....
TWO MORE WEEKS! TWO MORE WEEKS! Two more weeks until what, you ask. Two more weeks until I complete school and can officially claim my M.B.A.! This should be a time of great joy, excitement, and enjoyment. I have worked for years to reach this pinnacle. I powered through my Associate degree, and then went straight into my Bachelor degree program. Upon completion of the Bachelor degree program, I thought I was finished. Ahh but something said CONTINUE ON! Therefore, I entered the MBA program. I have focused, I have been determined, I have been resolute. In two more weeks, I will have completed what I started out to do.

This is fine… HOWEVER… I do not feel that exhilaration that I believe I should feel. Instead, I feel ANXIETY, FEAR, INDECISIVENESS, and UNCERTAINTY. I know, I know…. The bible says in Philippians 4:6-7 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;  and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

I know the Word and I know I should not be anxious but I am. During my time in school, I have worked in temporary jobs, per diem jobs, and worked for myself. I focused on school so I could land that PERFECT JOB. Now that school is almost over I have all types of things running through my head like, suppose, I do not find a good job? What if no one wants me? I am too old to be job hunting. The job market has changed and what if I do not fit in? All of these questions and concerns and more are swirling around in my head.

As an older, African-American woman living in Texas, I am aware of the plethora of “odds” against me! People are supportive, and helpful, telling me who is hiring, what company I should work at, and where I should be looking. However, HONESTLY, I wish people would just back off a little! They are well meaning, but I am starting to feel pressured! Moreover, this is just adding to my already raw, and over exposed nerves! One quote that I like a lot and have read over and over during the harder parts of my school journey is, “It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light” by Aristotle Onassis. This is so true and where I am now. I am trying to get in to a place of peace and calm, a place where I can clearly hear and see what is before me.

I know that sometimes even the strongest people have moments of weakness. My prayer is, Lord, you know the big picture, and your plans are perfect. I will rest in you.

WELL!!!!! Here we are 2 WEEKS LATER and IT IS FINISHED! MBA BABY!!!!!!

2015 Daily Planner by Sue Hooley, A Review

I am EXCITED! You all KNOW how much I LOVE FREE STUFF!! Well, I was blessed with the opportunity to review a fabulous product! I reviewed Sue Hooley's 2014 AND 2015 Daily Planner! Yes! Two products for the price of one!

*Sue Hooley and CWA Review Crew provided me with a complimentary copy of “2014 & 2015 Daily Planner” to read/use in order to write my review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. The opinions expressed here are purely and truthfully my own and uncompensated. I am disclosing this in accordance with the FTC Regulations. I am part of The CWA Review Crew.*
About the Author & Product:
The Daily Planner was designed by Sue, wife of Dan for 24 years and mother to six lovely children, two girls and four boys ages 5-21. The planner was developed after several years of motherhood and homemaking. Sue understood that a homemaker's day can rarely be scheduled and structured the same as the one before – not every task can fit neatly into the time-slot allotted by other planners. Since her first publication in 2010, thousands of homemakers have benefited from the daily planner.

Product Details:
Spiral-bound: 236 pages
Publisher: Vision Publishers LLC; Spi edition (March 25, 2014)
Language: English
Publication date: 3/25/2014

Product Features:
Weekly Layout

  • Two-page spread with entries for each day
  • Menu planning
  • To-do list

Monthly Calendar

  • Two-page month view

Year Calendars

  • 2015 and 2016 calendars with place for notations

Shopping List

  • Perforated shopping list

Task List and Project & Events Sections

  • Untitled pages for you to customize for your own duties and ideas


  • Short-term information that is relevant to 2015

NOW! My Thoughts!...
So, this planner has a ton of features (most listed above) but there are a couple of user friendly features I want to highlight.

  1. First, what I really like is the bible scriptures posted through out the book. On each weekly page there is a bible scripture which can easily be used a a weekly devotion! 
  2. Another feature that I actually love is that on each weekly page there is a small monthly calendar with the current week highlighted! This is good because if you are scheduling events for a certain week you can clearly see the month at a glance to see which week (1st-5th) you are working on. 
  3. I also like the fact that the top of the weekly pages have a dotted line that says "cut here". Now unless you use planners a lot this may not be a big thing for you BUT believe me, being able to cut the edges of helps you open the planner back up and be able to find your current month/week immediately! VERY HELPFUL!!
  4. The last page of the planner is actually a Folder Pocket! You can stick coupons, receipts, notes, or business cards in there for safe keeping or easy access! HOW COOL IS THAT?!?!
  5. The cover has very pretty artwork. The book could have had different pictures for the dividers but the cover art is very nice.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this planner! On a scale of 1-10, I give this planner a solid 9! 

I actually wanted to give this planner an overall 10 HOWEVER one MAJOR drawback for me was that the planner/book is NOT refillable! So that means every note, birthday, anniversary, phone number or address, etc that I write in it I will have to REWRITE next year in the next planner. UGH!!!!! How very frustrating to have to rewrite all of the information! But that is a minor deterrent because everything else about the planner is AWESOME!
This makes a GREAT GIFT! To pick up your copy you can go HERE, HERE, or HERE!

An Insider's Guide To Spiritual Warfare - Book Review

I recently read a book by Kristine McGuire that was very interesting. This is the second book by Kristine McGuire that I have read. I read AND reviewed her book "Escaping The Cauldron" (you can read that review HERE).

Well once again, it is October! Halloween season. The time of year when many Christians are unsure if they should or should not celebrate Halloween or how they should respond to it.
I have my own personal opinion about Christians who celebrate Halloween or celebrate a replacement “event” for that day. I have blogged about it before, asking people about their honest opinions on the subject. You can read those comments HERE and HERE! But I digress!
So anyway, I just read this book by Kristine McGuire…

* Baker Publishing Group via Glass Road Media Management has provided me with a complimentary copy of “An Insider’s Guide to Spiritual Warfare” to read in order to write my review.*

Title – An Insider’s Guide to Spiritual Warfare: 30 Battle-Tested Strategies from Behind Enemy Lines
Author – Kristine McGuire
Publisher – Baker Publishing Group
Date of publication – October 2014
Number of pages – 224

About The Author:
Kristine McGuire spent eight years blending Christianity with the occult.  She has been a Solitary Eclectic Christian Witch, a clairsentient medium, and a lead investigating member of a paranormal enthusiast group. Kristine is currently a popular blogger and speaker. You can learn more about Kristine McGuire HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE!

Watch this quick video of Kristine's personal story...

About The Book:
Former Witch and Medium Reveals Satan's Strategies from behind Enemy Lines
Although we live in the physical world, our daily lives are connected--whether or not we realize it--to the spiritual battle raging around us. Having spent years as a medium, witch, and ghost hunter before being restored to her faith, Kristine McGuire has been on both sides of the battle line. Here she offers unique insight for every Christian, revealing the favorite tactics of the enemy and the deceptions behind the paranormal so popular today.
McGuire also gives 30 battle-tested strategies for victory, making this the practical go-to guide to what goes on behind enemy lines--and how to respond without fear.

So, NOW The Good Stuff: MY REVIEW!
First of all let me say that is is an AWESOME marketing move to publish this book in October, Halloween month! MARKETING GENIUS! Too publish this book around Halloween time is good marketing because of the subject matter. The talk of witches, demons, etc is always better in October! For any one who does not know or believe YES! SPIRITUAL WARFARE is VERY REAL!
Ephesians 6:12 tells us...
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
I love this book! I especially love the 30 Strategy Points (Thank You Kristine for making it plain!!)! Two of my favorite strategy points from this book were # 20 Walk away from arguments without taking or giving offense! And #25 Reject the world's belief that the dead can return to dwell or communicate with the living!

I think this is a good book for novice as well as experienced spiritual warriors! Other things about the book that I love are that at the end of each chapter there is a "Your Turn To Reflect" portion with questions to help you reflect on what you read. The book also has a "Take Action" portion at the end of each chapter to help the reader incorporate what they read into their daily life. The book of course has a scripture reference at the end of each chapter to help you tie it all back to the Word of God.
This book is good for personal spiritual enrichment, book clubs, and bible study.
You can buy the book HERE, HERE, and HERE! Get your copy TODAY!

On a scale of 1-10 I give this book an solid 9 1/2!

Awesome Read!
Blessings & Walk in HIS Power Today!

Tyler Perry is Expecting A Baby And The World Just Stopped Spinning!

I do not generally blog about celebrities. Frankly, there are enough other people who spend THEIR LIFE worrying about what celebrities do, what they eat, where they sleep, who they sleep with, etc. So I tend to stay out of the celebrity scandal genre. Further more I really DO NOT CARE about what celebrities do and who they do it with. I have a hard enough time maintaining my own life! So all of that said....
I recently read that Actor, Producer, Screen Writer Tyler Perry is expecting a baby. WOOHOO! Well God Bless him!
So let me tell you why this news is upsetting so many people.
Well people are saying that he should practice what he preaches. People are saying that if he is truly a man of God, as he says he should not be having a child out of wedlock. People are saying that his "ministry" talks about not having sex until you are married, and the comments or remarks go on and on. I read these and similar comments from a post of the article which was posted on Yolanda Adams morning show page. You can read the article for yourself HERE
So this is my issue... and mind you a lot of these comments are coming from Christians who are quoting scriptures saying how wrong he is. So my position is this... THAT IS NOT YOUR BUSINESS!
"WE" (and I use we as a general term), we are so caught up in the "celebrity" that we are overlooking the "man". Tyler Perry NEVER said he was a PASTOR, PREACHER, or Man of the cloth. He is NOT a gospel singer, nor does he work in or represent a church. Tyler Perry is an ACTOR, MOVIE PRODUCER, SCREEN WRITER, and maybe even a MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER. So what, he has been seen with preachers, so what he prayed for Bishop Jakes, SO WHAT!
People have put this man up on a pedestal, People have made him out to be something other than a human being, People have decided that because he talks about God in his movies and plays, and because he speaks truths sometimes, than he should be held to the standard of a preacher.
WOW! So have YOU ever prayed for someone? I have. Have YOU ever talked to someone about life and said words that really moved, changed, or impacted them? I have. Does THAT make you a preacher? NO! I am a regular, ordinary, everyday person. I sometimes curse, I sometimes drink wine, I listen to a wide variety of music, I even watch movies that sometimes contain sex, or immoral behaviors. BUT I also have a relationship with God. I pray, I read my bible, and I try to live my life in a way that God would be pleased (But there are times when I fall way short)!

My question is, why do you care so much abut Tyler Perry's private life??? It has absolutely nothing to do with you. Ultimately everything Mr. Perry does is between him and GOD. And when you say, "I'm NOT Judging him, I'm just stating the facts" you really are judging him.
Stop comparing celebrities to preachers, Stop putting people on pedestals and then getting mad if they fall off in your eyes.
As for Mr. Perry, Congratulations & welcome to parenthood!

Moving On...

Need To Relax? Take A Moment...

Take the time to relax.
Do something for YOURSELF! Life is all consuming with work, school, church, family, spouse, charity, events, errands, and the list goes on and on. It is easy to get overwhelmed and loose yourself in the ACTIVITIES of your life.
Take a moment for yourself. It may not always be possible to go on vacation, or go out and relax, but there are little things that you can do for yourself.
A couple weekends ago I found myself home alone, no kids, no grand-kids, no paperwork to do, no school paper or homework to do, so it seemed like a good time to pop in one of my favorite movies [League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen], pull out the foot soak tub and sit back and enjoy some "ME TIME"!!

Take time for YOU! Love YOURSELF!

Aveeno Positively Radiant Tone Corrector - Review

A couple of weeks ago I received a product to test. And in all fairness it has taken me this long to do the review because I had to give the product time to work OR not work! so that I could give my true assessment of the product.

So the legal stuff... 
**I received Aveeno Positively Radiant Targeted Tone Corrector complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.  There was no monetary compensation and This review is my thoughts on the product.**

So I received this product a couple of weeks ago and have used it according to the instructions. The instructions are apply to dark spots or uneven tone areas in the AM and PM before your moisturizer. According to the packaging, the products' purpose is to help fade the look of dark spots and uneven tone. so for about 2 weeks twice a day I put this on before I moisturized. so here are my thoughts on #RadiantWithAVEENO 

So my opinions... The Good Stuff!
This product smells absolutely heavenly. The scent is very light and slightly botanical. It reminds you of happy memories that you can just almost remember but then they flutter away! The product contains soy complex as an active ingredient (for those who are into that sort of thing!) and it also contains Vitamin A. It is also SPF 30 for those sunny days!
The product was very light on my face. It was not thick or heavy. Actually the product is just shy of being runny. I have very weird skin sometimes and products do not often work well on my face, but the product did not make me itch or break out or have any adverse affects on my skin. My skin feels very soft after use, not dry or sticky.

But... The Not so Good Stuff!
I really wanted to love this product but sadly I could not. I just simply did not deliver on what it was supposed to do. After 2 weeks of using this product I have seen absolutely NO CHANGE to the tone of my skin. The darker spots are still dark, the uneven tone is still uneven, there has been no change. Well.. I can not say no change because my skin feels super soft LOL! But as a tone corrector this product FAILS! Sorry Aveeno, but this product did not deliver!
So on a scale of 1-10 I have to rate this product a 5 (the 5 is only because of fragrance and feel!).
You can buy this product at Target, Walmart, and other retailers.

Do Christians Love Homosexuals? Does God?

The world is in turmoil and that is to be expected and was foretold. Interesting enough people are really not understanding the nature of the attacks. We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against the powers and principalities, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. We are to HATE the SIN, NOT the SINNER! But Christians seem to have a hard time separating the two. Some Christians seem to be fine with forsaking all homosexuals. Some Christians seem to be of the mind set that says, your sin, your death. What ever happened to Being the Example of Christ in the World? Whatever happened to being CHRIST LIKE? But to be fair many in an "alternative" lifestyle seem to be of the mindset of, You are either for me AND my Lifestyle or you are against me AND my Lifestyle. I have friends and family who live an alternative lifestyle and I love them all dearly and treat them the same as I treat everybody else. But yet by the world's standards I am classified as a "Homophobe"! Seriously?!?! Just because I do not agree with your lifestyle does NOT make me a Homophobe. The definition of a Homophobe is one who HATES or FEARS homosexuals. I neither HATE nor FEAR them. But I understand that the "agenda" is to create division, fear, and hatred, in order to justify or further your cause. I get that. What kills me is that many Christians fall into the trap. And many DO HATE & FEAR homosexuals and it causes them to react irrationally, irresponsibly, and stupidly.
I came across an article last week on about two lesbians who wanted to buy wedding dresses but the Christian shop owners turned them away. You can read the article for yourself HERE. I remember the whole debate with the Christian bakery (that subsequently ended up going out of business), there was also a christian photographer who refused homosexuals service.
Everyone has their own opinion on the issue and that is fine.

Me, personally speaking, have a pretty unique perspective. If I open a business, I am doing so to operate in such a way that generates revenue. Plainly put I am in business to make money! Your money is not black, white, gay, or straight. It is money and can be used to buy a million bibles, I can donate it to hundreds of Christian causes, once I get the money I can buy what I want and support any causes that I choose to support. So YES, I will gladly take your money and sell you the finest, prettiest, fliest wedding dress in creation! And while in my Christian based shop, that You CHOSE to patronize, you will hear gospel/christian music, you will hear me say "PRAISE GOD" and I will ask you, "Do YOU Know Him"? BUT, I will also treat you with the respect I treat ALL my customers with. Why? Because ALL customers deserve respect for the simple fact that out of any other shop in the world you CHOSE to come in and buy from mine! Thank you! I appreciate your business!
I also understand that there are factions with agendas who will target christian owned businesses to stir the pot so to speak. To get attention and notoriety for their cause. To that I say, you do not have to take the bait, or attend every argument you are invited to! People with a negative agenda can only cause trouble where others feed into their negative nonsense! They are not out there arguing and screaming and fighting with themselves. They need willing participants. Do NOT be a willing participant! The only reason I am posting about this is because I read something in the comments on Facebook about the wedding shop that was so IGNORANT, and so ASININE to me that I had to blog about it. Some super smart, Christian woman said, "As a business owner they should be able to sell to whoever they want to and NOT sell to whoever they do not want to sell to"....
Yes, I will give you a minute to think about that line and digest it fully.....

So.... What she just said is if you do not want to sell to someone for whatever reason you should not have to. she even said they should post a sign say who they will not sell to! Wow, So then if you do not want to sell to Black people, White people, Gay people, Muslim people it should be perfectly okay since it is your store??? So obviously DISCRIMINATION and SEGREGATION mean absolutely NOTHING to you! Or maybe it is not even about RACE, GENDER, RELIGION, or even SEXUAL ORIENTATION, maybe it is about sin. So in your store you will not sell to sinners. Not ADULTERERS, FORNICATORS, LIARS, MURDERERS, THIEVES, etc. Uh, so who WILL you sell to?! Since ALL have sinned and come short of God's glory, you must not be trying to sell to ANYBODY!!

Anytime someone comes into your place of business they should feel God's love. They should leave your establishment saying, WOW, That Christian lady was so nice to me, is that what God's love is like? As Christians we have to pick our battles OR be smarter in battle. Whatever happened to catching more with honey than with vinegar? Because I'm sure your screams about hate and sin and death are winning so many souls over to Christ... He should be proud...

*But hey this is only MY opinion, You keep right on doing whatever it is that you do!*
Ignorance Makes Me Itch....

Your Life Is NOT Your Own

The death of comedian Robin Williams, made me do some thinking about depression, and suicide. I have no clue and do not presume to understand what goes on in the minds of people other than myself. Sometimes I barely understand what goes on in my own mind. BUT, I do know that mental illness is real and so is depression. We see the commercials on television with the people looking sad, detached from others, and obviously depressed. However, depression is not always that obvious. Someone can go to work, school, or church everyday, perform the way they have been performing and yet still be depressed,
 stressed, anxious, lonely, despondent, and on the edge. When someone smiles at you, there is no way of really knowing what is going on behind that smile.
How often do you ask someone how they are doing and they say I'm Fine...
People can have hundreds or thousands of Facebook friends, Twitter followers, Instagram, or Pinterest friends and still be the loneliest person we know. Suicide is not just something that happens to other ethnicities, suicide can happen to anyone, any race, any gender, any age, and any economic status.
We need to PRAY for one another, LOVE one another, and genuinely be CONCERNED for one another.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of darkness, and against spiritual wickedness. Our enemy is strong and has a full arsenal of weapons with which to steal, kill, and destroy. One of the enemy's greatest tactics is to infiltrate our minds and fill it with wickedness, sickness, and depression. If the enemy can successfully infiltrate your mind, the rest of you will follow. What can get a person to honestly believe that his or her only option is SUICIDE? The ENEMY! The enemy gets in your mind and convinces you that NO ONE CARES, that NO ONE LOVES YOU, that you have NO OPTION but to end it all. That is ALL A LIE from the pit of HELL! There is ALWAYS another option, There is ALWAYS someone you can turn to because ABBA FATHER is ALWAYS here for you!
Jesus gave his life for YOU, It is selfish to TAKE A LIFE THAT IS NOT YOUR OWN! We belong to the FATHER! Our life is HIS, treat it accordingly!

Peace & Love

Smart Silk Pillow - Review

 Have you heard of SmartSilk Pillows or Covers? I had not until a call went out to test SmartSilk pillows. And since many of you know of my love for all things FREE I jumped on the chance to review these pillows.
First let me tell you ...
I received this complementary pillow from SmartSilk and FuelMyBlog to try in exchange for my honest and unbiased review of the product. I was not monetarily compensated for this review. All opinions about the product are my own.

So first the SmartSilk details:
SmartSilk™ Bedding is:

  •   Naturally 100% hypo-allergic - does not trigger feather-related allergic reactions
  •   Rich with the protein sericin - the best choice for those with skin allergies
  •   Inhospitable to dust mites - a great relief to allergy sufferers
  •   Able to wick away excessive moisture - ideal for those affected by night sweats, or mild incontinence
  •   A fire retardant - ideal for crib bedding
  •   Resistant to mold & mildew and is one of the strongest natural fibers - durable, long lasting
  •   Light in weight and will not take on body odor - luxurious, soft, comfortable
  •   A temperature regulator - gives you warmth when it is cold and cools you down when warm
  •   Certified asthma & allergy friendly™ - confidence you can trust  

NOW! My Thoughts!
Okay so first of all this is a pillow filled with silk! It is extra soft and actually feels like the pillows in high-end hotels! The pillow comes in three sizes, Standard, Queen, and King.  It is a good choice if you have allergies or asthma! I like and dislike this pillow. I wanted to LOVE it but I did not! For me this pillow is TOO SOFT! I need a little bit of firmness under my head. This pillow molds to the shape of your head and seems to encase the head! While sleeping on my back the sides of the pillow actually come up on the sides and I almost felt like I was smothering. Maybe my head is too big and too heavy, but what ever the reason I did not like it! Maybe in the winter this will add extra warmth by the way you sink into it. On the plus side though the pillow actually had some noise cancelling properties! Not sure if that was intentional or just a by product but with your head buried in this pillow sounds are muffled!
So since I did not like the feel under my head I decided to switch positions! I have bad knees and sometimes when I sleep on my side my knees stiffen up and hurt.  So I decided to see what this pillow could do for my knees. I placed the pillow between my knees and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the pillow for my knees! I put the pillow between my knees and the softness cradled the knees perfectly. The pillow between the knees also helped with my back alignment! I woke up with NO knee pain and NO back pain! I also tried the pillow out under my knees while sleeping on my back... FABULOUS! I know that pregnant women sometimes have back and knee issues, I think this would be the perfect gift for pregnant women!
So I would say on a scale of 1-10, I give these SmartSilk Pillows a solid 8!

Happy Sleeping!

Everyday Uplifting You - Book Review

Title – EveryDay Uplifting You: Daily Encouragement for Your Soul 365 Days of Any Year 
Author - Valderine Newton-Knowles
Publisher – BookBaby
Date of publication – May 30, 2014
Number of pages – 62

*CWA Review Crew and the author Valderine Newton-Knowles have provided me with a complimentary copy of “EveryDay Uplifting You” to read in order to write my review. The opinions expressed are truthful, mine, and uncompensated.*

About The Author: Val has a  masters in theology and is currently a pastor at Jesus Christ Centered Ministries International in Nassau, Bahamas ( JCCMI). She lives in the Bahamas with her husband, Oshnal Aldo, and their daughter, Tiara Aaliyah. You can learn more about the author HERE, HERE, and HERE.

About The Book: What started out as a tool to bless and encourage an aunt quickly became an idea to bless as many people all over the world as possible. Everyday Uplifting you, is a book filled with daily nuggets to jump start your day. After watching an aunt broken due to the many obstacles she had been facing, Val decided to do something special for her and started writing nuggets for each day to show her aunt how much she is loved and remind her of the blessing that she is. The book is designed to bless, motivate, uplift and challenge you with powerful nuggets to empower you from the inside out.

My Thoughts: What an awesome book! The book is uplifting and Inspiring without being boring and self-serving! A lot of daily motivational books are more about the author and their life/trials then they are about uplifting others. But this book is refreshingly different. The book has daily, quick, one liners that make you smile and enhance the beauty of your day! The book is short enough that you can read it in one sitting, but the substance is clearly fitting of a daily inspirational book. The colors of the photos are FABULOUS, actually breath taking! The pictures have a euphoric quality that mixes very well with the daily encouraging words. The daily encouragement is short one or two lines however they can be used as the foundation of an in-depth study or devotional. The daily words are short enough that it does not take up much time but meaningful enough to Sustain you, Uplift you, and Motivate you! This is a good daily encourage to accompany a daily devotional.
This is a fabulous daily read and worthy of repeat reads!
On a scale of 1-10 I give this book a solid 9!
You can purchase a copy of this book from Amazon.
