Book review: He calls you beautiful by Dee Brestin

This wonderful, insightful book contains transformative truths for every individual: married or single. I enjoyed the contemporary illustrations. Dee shows how God uses poetry and unique images to illustrate the intimacy that Jesus desires to have with each one of us. 
His love is something that we comprehend and also feel in our heart. He sings over us a song of love, a song of salvation, a song of hope: a Song of songs. Truly is amazing the way God expresses His love and we should be in awe of His love. I received a copy of the book from the publisher for this review.

Book review: Men who love fierce women by LeRoy and Kimberly Wagner

This book is useful for any family. You will discover how LeRoy in Men who love fierce women is sincere about his failures, frustrations as a husband. In this work he presents the solutions that have saved his marriage. Also you can discover what requirements God has for every husband. Kim and LeRoy offer the tools men need in order to rise up, handle conflict, love their wife. The important role is to lead their marriage, regardless of who has the stronger personality. The husband in this case is calm, quiet and the wife is more fierce. One example is the fact that as the wife pushes, the husband feels the need to withdraws. Or when he leads less, she has the tendency to take over. Any couple can learn how to work together as a team, being in agreement, how to use their personality differences in a constructive way, not a destructive one. Would recommend this book to any married couple. I received a copy of the book from the publisher for this review.

Book review: Failure the back door to success by Erwin W Lutzer

Failure back door to success is a wonderful book in which we can understand that even tough we sin, come short on many things, experience setbacks and have weaknesses, God still uses all of it to get us transformed and mature. It's an inspiring book that teaches anyone lots of things. We have to learn from the past without being controlled by it, have to accept ourselves the way we are and embrace our limitations. Accepting ourselves and seeing us accepted the way God sees us is truly a revelation. We have to become more gracious and kind toward other people and redefine our idea of success. We need faith, confidence, freedom and to know He is at work in us, what He started will bring to completion in our lives. He is not finished with us. Prayer is essential in order to have succes through His work in our lives. I received a copy of the book from the publisher for this review.

God's devil is a well written book that teaches you everything you need to know about how to identify the enemy's attacks, how he brings thoughts to you and tries to influence you to dwell in those thoughts, also how to avoid his attacks. We need to put on the full armor of God to be able to whitstand his attacks. There's lots of information about how Satan fits into God’s great plans for the world. There's also confidence in knowing God has everlasting victory over Satan. Also you will be equipped to withstand Satan’s schemes against you. Would recommend this book to anyone.

Book review: Break open the sky by Stephan Bauman

Break open the sky is a great book that presents how today's society is surrounded by racism, terror and wars and the future looks uncertain. Despite all of this we have to put our faith in God and have hope that all things work for the best and He has everything under control. Living in fear bring anxiety, depression and weakness physically, mentally and spiritually. We need prayer and confidence in God that He will take care of all the problems we may face and that His power in us makes us overcome any evil scheme. If we don't have faith, there's not much left. This book is an eye opener, very motivational, inspiring and interesting to read. It's well presented and inspires hope. I received a copy of the book from the publisher for this review.

Book review: Guarded by Christ by Heather Holleman

Guarded by Christ is a great book about the fact that God is guarding the lives of His faithful children. The verse referred to is: "God guards the lives of His faithful ones." (Psalms 97:10)
Heather Holleman is presenting practical ways of renewing the mind for the purpose of living strong in the Lord. One of the ways is by adopting righteousness instead of condemnation. We have to declare that we are the righteousness of Christ in God and not to let condemnation steal from us the right we have as heirs of God. Another way is putting on the shoes of peace with which we can stop the fiery darts of the enemy instead of letting ourselves be covered in anxiety, worry and sickness. Having an attitude of hope instead of despair keeps us strong and positive for any challenge that comes our way and open doors for us that otherwise would not be available. Using the Holy's Spirit power is essential in living right and having victory opposed to having self efforts that don't succed and lead to dissatisfaction, disappointment and frustration. Living a crucified life is the thing that keeps us humble and dependent on God, whereas living a self important life is insanity and leads to our failure and failing. Would recommend this book to anyone. I received a copy from the publisher for this review.

Book review: 8 Great Smarts by Kathy Koch

Children are so uniquely created and have an amazing potential. For parents it's important to understand the intelligences children have and reinforce them, improve them so that they can use all 8  smarts. Thinking with words, questions, pictures, melodies, movements, touch, patterns, people or reflections are opportunities to reinforce, reactivate and empower children's abilities. There is a need to work on the non utilized smarts, accepting and understanding children's capabilities. Behavior can be redirected in new positive ways and children can be guided spiritually, in the area of their relationships and choosing of the appropriate carrer. Dr. Kathy Koch is doing a great job in presenting this book with lots of practical applications in an insightful and practical way. I received a copy of the book from the publisher for this review.
