Angels Are For Real, by Judith MacNutt

This book is a good, sound and biblical book about angels. The author not only shares scriptural references to teach the different roles of the angels but also shares testimonies from people who have had personal experiences themselves with angels. Angels are not just something the Lord used back in the Old Testament days. He, God, still uses angels today to help His people. I loved this book I think mostly because I can relate to the testimonies others have had concerning their supernatural experiences with angels for I have had some myself. The first time was during a conference where people from all over the world were in attendance. We were all expecting of the Lord and He did not fail us. The praise and worship was so deep that we just kept singing the same thing again and again and none of us wanted to come out! It was during such a time of praise and worship that I saw angels beginning to file up around the musicians. I was not shown their faces or anything in great detail…only their wings. I saw them in iridescent colors of shiny white, pale lavender and pink.

I recommend this book to anyone but especially to those who they themselves have had personal experiences with angels and want to know more about the roles of the angels.

Reading this book has stirred me up spiritually and I am yearning to have more experiences with God Himself and also with His angels.

May the Lord bless you in your Christian walk and may you also be stirred spiritually by having just read this book review! In Jesus name I pray, amen.

Simple Secrets To A Happy Life, by Luci Swindoll

LOVE THIS BOOK!!! This one will NOT be given away and probably not lent out. I may, however, purchase this book to give to the closest women in my life! It is just that good!
This is my first read of any of Luci Swindoll’s material. Luci is an author, popular speaker, photographer, musician, artist, and world traveler. Sounds like she is also a good friend to all she encounters. Chuck Swindoll is her brother and I have loved, and kept, many of his books.
What I love, love, love about this book is:

1)The chapters are short. (Perfect for those who are busy and on the go) One chapter is the perfect size for reading something right before nodding off to sleep.

2)The chapters are chock full of great advice which is laced with sound wisdom.

3)What you read has opportune to be life changing. (That is, if you TAKE her great advice)

4)Luci has a Biblical and Christian perspective.

After reading this book or even just one single chapter you feel as if you’ve just had quality time with a close friend, a mentor, a life coach, big sister or even your mother! (I miss you Mom!)

I will be on the look out for more of Luci Swindoll’s writings. They are sure to become a favorite of your own as well.

Dinner With A Perfect Stranger by David Gregory

First off I LOVE the compact size and the fact that it is a hard back. The colors of the book jacket are also quite appealing and made me immediately want to sit down in a comfy chair with this book. Having said that, the contents of the book matched my initial reaction to it.
The written invitation to a dinner with Jesus of Nazareth made my heart pound to even think of such a thing happening. Thoughts of this actually happening in my own life flooded my mind. Could you imagine actually being physically invited to a dinner with JESUS?!?!?!?! My thoughts immediately went to, “Would I take along some questions to ask Him?” or “Would I just be happy to be there in His presence?”
This book is a quick read and one of those you don’t want to put down until you’ve finished it.

Here is my suggestions to you”
1) Get the book.
2) Read it.
3) Give it or borrow it to someone else.

Very thought provoking.

Our Favorite Sins by Todd D. Hunter

Ever have repeated temptations in your life? Ever make excuses for giving in to them? (ex=It’s my only vice/It’s not like the bigger sins like murder/It’s just this one small thing)
If you have then you’re not alone! But now, here, this question: “Ever try to stop?” or “Want to gain tools to overcome temptation and not give in?” If so then this book is for YOU- whether you are a Christian or non-Christian. It seems all human beings have this problem in one area or another. This author offers solutions.

Worth the read and came to me as a word in due season.
I recommend it.
