Book Review - 31 days of Power

Spiritual warfare that is not based on the Word of God may actually give Satan an advantage in our lives. This trustworthy devotional clarifies the struggle against evil forces and guides readers to a daily application of Christ's victory for us on the cross. In her warmly positive, personal style, author Ruth Myers equips readers with two powerful spiritual tools: feeding on God's Word and praising God for His unsearchable love and boundless power. Myers promises "a balanced and positive approach to your spiritual warfare, an approach that will increase your skill in resisting Satan's purposes and promoting those of our triumphant Lord."

Triumph for Today

Your life is the focus of an ongoing spiritual battle. But Christ’s victory for you on the cross can make a difference every day, in every circumstance.

As you feed richly on God’s Word through this powerful devotional, you’ll be filled with praise for His unsearchable love and boundless power. Every day, you’ll find growing strength from God to prevail in your struggles.

Find release from the burdens the evil one would place on your shoulders—and be refreshed by a closer walk with God.

Author Bio
Ruth Myers and her late husband Warren served with The Navigators in Singapore for many years, teaching men and women how to experience God and His Word. Together they coauthored several books and Bible studies, including the bestselling 31 Days of Praise. Ruth now serves in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

My thoughts:
31 days of Power is a lovely little book will 4-6 wonderful bible passages focusing on over coming spiritual warfare. As well as the words of Ruth and her late husband. Over the last few days I have personally battling my with Spiritual warfare. From the first page I was uplifted!Through these 31 days, you will learn to live in "dynamic triumph God offers us in Christ" (Ruth Myers, pg.3) armed with God's powerful word and amazing truths! The Lord is all powerful not matter what we are going through.
The Spiritual Warfare is all around us, and we need to be equipped to deal with it at every moment. Weather it is everyday life to life or something even bigger.
I don't know what you are going through, but I imagine that there is something that is attacking you, armed with the word of our Sovereign Lord you can over come it!
I would recommend this book to family and friends especially who are seeking the Lord's guidance! It is a wonderful companion to 31 Days of Praise.

Book Review - The Faith of Ronald Reagan


From the Publisher:
Explore the life and personality of President Ronald Reagan through the lens of his deep-felt Christian beliefs. With warmth and insight, Mary Beth Brown delves into the spiritual journey of America's 40th president and offers profound stories of God's providence in Ronald Reagan's life-from first making it as an actor to winning the presidency, from surviving an assassination attempt to eventually changing the face of world politics. With the support of Reagan's own words and writings and firsthand interviews with his family, friends, and co-workers, Brown weaves a magnificent story of Reagan's quiet, strong devotion to God, sure to both inform and inspire.
Timed for the Reagan centenary in 2011 and released in a season of intense political unrest, The Faith of Ronald Reagan is strikingly relevant for today's reader.

My Review...
My mom has told me the same story since I was a little girl. A story about how I was going to be named
Hearing this my whole life, sparked a interest in
 President Ronald Reagan quotes:
Reagan. She loved the name and she loved Ronald Reagan both as a actor first then as President. When she shared that she was thinking about naming me Reagan she was made fun of and worried that I might be as well...so here I am Britni.Ronald Reagan at a young age. I have always Admired him. Democracy is worth dying for, because it's the most deeply honorable form of government ever devised by man. -

Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged. -

A personal favorite that means something very special to me...
Ronald Reagan
Mr Gorbachev, tear down this wall! -

I remember watching the wall come down- Nov. 9th 1989 - my older brother Troy lived in Germany at the time, and called when the wall was coming down.

Not only are these all things that I admire about Ronald Reagan, but his spiritual life and marriage to Nancy have always been intriguing to me!
 
I absolutely LOVE this book! Mary Beth Brown did a beautiful job. This book is Jam packed full, of President Ronald Reagan's life. His life as a child, his marriage to adorable and Godly Nancy, His Children...ever thing. I just can't say enough, it is just wonderful. Through out the book there are a number of photos from is life, I really enjoyed seeing him as a child. Among others there is the emotional section about his farewell handwritten letter to the Nation and telling them (us) about his Alzheimer's disease.

"I intend to live the remainder of the years God gives me on this earth doing the things I have always done. I will continue to share life's journey with my beloved Nancy and my family. I plan to enjoy the great outdoors and stay in touch with my friends and supporters....In closing, let me thank you, the American people, for giving me the great honor of allowing me to serve as your president. When the Lord calls me home, whenever that may be, I will leave the greatest love for this country of ours and eternal optimism for its future.
I now begin the journey that will lead me into the sunset of my life. I know that for America there will always be a bright dawn ahead.
Thank you, my friends.
Sincerely,
Ronald Reagan"

Now, this is a man that truly had Jesus in his heart. I am so happy to have known about him, and I will be teaching my Children about our wonderful 40th President!
Not only was Mr. President a Believer, a Husband, a Father, and a Amazingly Caring Man. He was also a gifted writer:

taken from page 46
"One of his stories, entitled "Gethsemane" was about a football game. It begins with these words, "To every man comes Gethsemane!...Some fight the battle when old age is creeping on like a silent clinging vine."

taken from page 192
"Reagan was earnestly seeking God's will for his life and for his dearly love country. It worked. In a 1984 speech he said. "Saint Paul wrote a verse that I have always Cherished,'Now abide in faith, hope, love, these three: but the greatest of these is Love' May we have Faith in our God and in all the good that we can do with His help. May we stand in the Hope of making America all that she can be-a nation of opportunity and prosperity and a force for Peace and good will among nations. And may we remain steadfast in our Love for this green and gentle land and the freedom that she offers."

I would like to get this book for a number of people I know who think would TRULY enjoy it as I. Please get your self a copy! You will be so happy you did!

In Closing...
Page 202

"Upon his arrival in Heaven, I am sure Ronald Reagan finally saw his Lord Jesus Christ face-to-face and heard him say, "Well done, good and faithful servant. Enter into the Joy of the LORD."

Simply Beautiful!

Book Review - God Gave Us So Much


Three Adorable Tales for Children of All Ages!

All three books are available in this exclusive treasury for the price of two!

God Gave Us the World
A brand new addition to this series.
For a limited time, available exclusively in this treasury!
God Gave Us Love
God Gave Us Heaven

Through the eyes of a curious little polar bear, young readers are invited into engaging journeys through the Arctic North Pole to explore some of their most tender-hearted and important questions.

Mama, Papa, and Grampa Bear, the ever-loving and wise guides for Little Cub’s adventures, share with her the incredible miracles of God’s creation and the depths of His love for her.

This limited edition treasury of the best-selling God Gave Us series includes three complete charming tales—one of which is brand new to the series. With heart and humor, the stories reveal the beauty of diversity throughout the world, the incredible gift of love, and the

wonderment of our Heavenly home to come.  

We were first introduced to this adorable little Polar Bear and Family, about two years ago when we found out we were having twins in a routine ultrasound. The ultrasound took place 5 days before my birthday. The Night of my birthday our doorbell rang, it was my dear friend Sharon dropping off a gift for my Birthday...a book. The Book was 'God gave us two' in the book the sweet Polar Bear's Mama gives birth to twins a boy and a girl. The gift was made even more special months later when, we learned we were too having a boy and a girl!

The Little Polar Bear Family quickly became a favorite in our home.
We were so excited to rip opened the package and start reading this 3 in 1 book! My 5 year old son was in love with this book from the moment he saw it! He loves that there is a old Polar Bear cub, and twin Polar Bear cubs...He said it's "Just like Us" :) These books are perfect for him.  He loved this "God might get mad if we hurt our world," Little Cub said.
"I get mad when the twins hurt my stuff." He was able to see that others feel the same way as him:)

I personally love this from God gave us Love:
"God gave us Love, all kinds of love.
The Love of mamas and papas,
the Love between friends and family.
And his Love too."

This would be the perfect addition to any family! These are wonderfully illustrated and full of Gods love! I look forward to adding all the Little Cub books to our family library!!
*God Gave Us So Much:
This is actually a 3-in-1 Limited Edition that includes "God Gave Us the World", "God Gave Us Love" and "God Gave Us Heaven".

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are 100% my own.
