Seven Mile Miracle: The Book That Changed My Life

Seven Mile Miracle by Steven Furtick is a very well written book speaking of Jesus last words. It speaks of Jesus words to his disciples, his family, and the thieves of the crosses at his side. I decided to review this book in hopes of discovering it to be an easy read for the Easter holiday. What I found instead was an in-depth study that left my life changed forever.

With a rough past and many issues due to this, I often find myself lacking trust and basic human interaction. The issues discussed in Seven Mile Miracle have greatly impacted my life for the better. Steven Furtick has taught me to forgive, how to love when it seems as if love is non-existent, and many more valuable life lessons.

I rate this read 5 out of 5 stars! Both intriguing and impacting, I often find many of Mr. Furtick’s works quite powerful. Using this one to explain the concept of forgiveness to my grandmother, it impacted multiple lives of people around me. I feel it is a great book, being able to apply to life more so than many others I have read.

I would like to thank Blogging for Books for providing me with this amazing read! You are cherished by your reviewers.

Thank you all. Have a blessed day!

Tranquility: Official Review

      Tranquilityas stated on the front cover, is ‘A prayer and reflection Coloring journal’. Beautifully written with well-drawn images, this book allows for a great time of relaxation with just you and your heavenly Father! I often find myself doodling away, or journaling inside the pages of Tranquility.  I find it quite relaxing to do so while listening to K-love radio or any other worship music I have available. It makes for quite the calming atmosphere.

I rate this workbook 4.5 out of 5 stars. While the book induces a heavenly atmosphere, I find the journaling aspect is not as great as it could be. While there are many pleasant scriptures accompanied by short messages or prayers, I feel the book would have a much greater impact if the lines for journaling had prompts. It would give us something more to think about.

Overall, I believe this book makes for an excellent companion, especially in times of great stress. I would like to thank Tyndale House Publishers for providing me with the material. You could easily apply for their review program here. Thank you for reading beauties. Have a blessed day!

Book Review: In Farleigh Fields

In Farleigh Fields, published on March 1st of 2017, tells the tale of a British family unfortunate enough to be caught up in the chaos of World War II. Life in their town is going quite well for most of the war. The luck they share with their neighbors does not go unnoticed. However, everything is not what it seems.

With Lady Margot away in France, the family quickly loses contact with her. All they can do is hope she is alright. Not long after, Jeremy Prescott, and old family friend, is taken captive by German soldiers. Pamma’s love for him never dies. She continues to hope that he will return- alive and safe. Little does she know his love for her is long gone.

In Farleigh Fields is a novel of life, death, and the lies that tore so many families apart. I rate this novel 5 out of 5 stars. The plot line kept me hanging on the edge of my seat the entire time. My emotions were everywhere, as any good book entails. I also strongly enjoyed this book because of how real it seemed. Everything was strictly based off of true facts. In the back of the book, there is an epilogue that explains the basis of the idea for the novel, as well as the facts that inspired the author to write.

I received this book for free on amazon kindle with my purchase of a kindle unlimited subscription. If you are interested in reading you can find the following formats at the links provided:

Review: Life After Heaven

Life after Heaven is a miraculous novel written by Steven R. Musick. It begins telling the story from the very beginning- that is when Musick was a child. It quickly works its way into his time in the navy leading up to the event of a lifetime- his journey to Heaven! He goes into a description of his walk with Jesus, leading up to his return to earth. This is only one of many miraculous events filling the life of Musick and those around him.

A perfect book for lovers of hit novel and movie, ‘Heaven is for Real’, Life after Heaven makes for a fascinating read. It is very similar to other books on near-death experiences, though at the same time quite different. Musick uses his experiences to guide others through their walk with God. It is somewhat of a devotional, though it is still a novel in itself.

 

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars, as I find it is nearly perfect in all ways. Speaking of ‘Bubbles of Heaven’ and his journey there, I find I can relate to Musick in many ways more than one. I believe anyone, even those of us who have not yet been there, can gain an unshakable relationship with God. That is if we only choose to follow many of the guidelines in this book. The set up of this title is also quite fascinating. It is divided into different parts- the before Heaven, the Heaven, and the after Heaven.

 

Now, before you leave, If you would like to know more about the author, you can check him out here.  Also, I highly recommend you read the epilogue as well. There is some interesting information in there! As a reminder to you all, I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review. Thank you for reading and have a blessed day!

The Banned Book About Love: The Story with a Story

When originally published by Scott Hughes in June of 2016, The Banned Book about Love was quite popular. It was a free e-book available only on amazon. In a mere three days, the author had 1,131 downloads and many a review. This fourteen-page wordy wonder took control of social media for it’s short season of success. Many people loved it. Many did not. With every lover, there is a hater as well. This book is a story of it’s own story.

Due to an uproar of Hughes-Haters, the book was banned from the store only three days after it was released. In this time frame, the author received many hateful comments as well as those of his sympathizers. These hateful comments, in my not so humble opinion, were highly uncalled for. These people clearly did not complete the reading before they went on to judge with a biased mind and a cold heart.

The Banned Book about Love discusses just that: Love. It tells us that love is worthy. It proposes that you love your neighbor as you love yourself. It reminds us that love does not require a perfect person. It is an act of selflessness and the opposite of self-righteousness. For how could one believe he is superior to his fellow persons yet love them still the same? It is not a realistic thought, am I right?

This fascinating read also explains that “hate does not work as a means.” It tells us that hate is simply broken love. The Banned Book about Love teaches us that love demands careful intelligent sacrifice, while hate is comforting. After all, ignorance is bliss, right?

This vivid page-turner is quite an amazing read for a mind that likes to think. Author Scott Hughes certainly has a way with words. He takes everyday issues and makes you wonder: How does this happen? Why is it the way it is? I am not sure about you but I enjoy books that make you more curious than you were when you began.

I rate this read 3 out of 4 stars. While it excites you and gets you thinking, there are moments when it is quite hard to concentrate. Aside from these few brain-blockers, I would absolutely recommend this book. I encourage you to give it a shot. You will not be disappointed. So, will you join the haters or the lovers?
