Walks With Buddy Book Review:

This book, Walks with Buddy (and Thoughts on Christ and Church), actually started out as a collection of short stories I submitted to my church's newsletter, the Miles Post. My church's name is Miles Memorial United Methodist, which is located in Norfolk, Virginia. The stories began in 2009 when I became the finance chair at my church. I found that while walking my dog, Buddy, I began having many thoughts about my surroundings, and many seemed to pertain to being finance chair as well as the church. With Buddy by my side, I had many interesting reflections, but I wasn't always sure where they were coming from, as I had never been a very religious person, so I decided the ideas were coming from Buddy himself. I adopted Buddy on September 11, 2008, and I can honestly say he has really changed my life; he has a heart of gold! Nobody has ever been a stranger to Buddy, this being especially true for when my mother was in the hospital as well as the assisted living facility. The love Buddy had for my mother was the same love she had for him. My mother was my inspiration in turning my little stories into a book to honor her. I am using my book, Walks with Buddy (and Reflections on Christ and Church), not only as a fund-raiser for my church but also as a way for everyone to get to know Buddy and maybe be drawn closer to Christ and their own church as well.

The residents of Haven are furious with the poodle and he is exiled to the perimeter of paradise. There he meets a young girl who has died of cancer and befriends her, another infraction of the rules. He is dragged before the communal tribunal, where MacKenzie defends him.

Sacred Sendoffs Book Review:

An elegant manifesto for improving life―and death―for all beings on sacred Mother Earth “After reading Sacred Sendoffs, I find myself living in a more amazing world, populated by a diverse array of unique individuals, each deserving of respect and care.” ― Victoria Moran, author of Creating a Charmed Life and The Good Karma Diet Combining humorous anecdotes and thought-provoking research, Sacred Sendoffs explores human relationships with beloved pets, wild creatures, animal astronauts, marine life, farmed animals, and other sentient beings. Along the way, animal chaplain Sarah Bowen shares insights for sustaining their lives, honoring deaths, and managing the emotions that arise when we lose an animal we love. While many books focus exclusively on pet loss, animal welfare, or environmental issues, Bowen’s ever curious and playful style takes on all three, revealing their unavoidable entanglement. Sacred Sendoffs helps animal lovers uncover practical actions and everyday opportunities for helping the more-than-human world thrive.

Across The Sea of Stars Book Review:

Far out across the sea of stars is an inverted universe where space is white and the stars are black. This universe is beyond an anomaly known as the Great Rift, which separates our universe from an infinity of abstract galaxies, planetary systems, and beings totally alien to anything known or imagined on our side of the universe. In this inverted universe is a hideous organism known as Yethla. It is confined to its own universe by the Great Rift until, one day, it finds a way to break through the barrier and enter our side of the universe. This is the story about the NSA2275 mining ship and its crew who leave the Jupiter Perimeter Space Dock in the year 2402 on an exploratory mission to locate a rare mineral in a far distant galaxy. What they find on a desolate planet has been buried for over a million years and will change their lives forever and open their eyes to what is far beyond the sea of stars.

Prayer and Worship Junior High Group Study Book Review:

Playing guitars? Singing? Prayer and Worship Uncommon Junior High Group Study helps you answer teens' (possibly never-voiced!) questions in ways that make sense for their junior high lives: Help them understand how God answers prayer, what to do when He seems silent, why we keep on praying, hat is worship? how does it all work? Through Scripture study, fun activities, stories and discussion, students will understand the "how and why" of prayer and —in ways that will help them make these two parts of loving God an integral part of their spiritual lives.

Detours Book Review:

Jessie hated leaving California, the ocean, the sand between his toes, the cool surf washing around his feet, and the smell of the seaweed as he tangled it around his shoulders. Hed been learning to body-surf with neighborhood friends and was getting pretty good. All that had come to an end when his dad announced taking that out-of-state job. Why isnt the one you have good enough? challenged Jessie. No one listened. From heaven to hell, Jessie thought. He almost hated his dad for making him change friends, schools, and his home, leaving the wonderful sea behind. He bet the teenagers of the desert never even heard of surfing! Making it worse was changing late in the semester. He wouldnt know anyone in his classes; he thought hed be the new freak! His heart was heavy. Would there be anything good to write?

Life Changing Thoughts Book Review:

LIFE CHANGING THOUGHTS is a book difficult to put down. One moment you will find yourself laughing; the next moment, you find yourself in deep meditation. The book contains thousands of inspiring, life changing, worshipful and humorous thoughts. There are nearly 700 pages with almost 500 different topics categorized alphabetically. Some of the book's topics are God and the Bible, character, faith, fullness, the family and home, leadership, patriotic thoughts, prayer and victorious living. The book even contains great seasonal thoughts for thanksgiving, Christmas and the Resurrection. As a young man, the author began collecting life-changing thoughts for his own personal use. It was not long until he was using the thoughts and poems within his own writings and sermons. Over a thirty-five year period, the collection of inspiring thoughts grew from only a few to number into the thousands. As the collection grew so did the author's ability to compose and write his own thoughts and poems. Many of these are included within this book. The book is a great resource for pastors, teachers, speechmakers, communicators and leaders. You will find the life-changing thoughts beneficial for your own edification and enjoyment. In addition, the book provides you with a wealth of inspiring and motivating thoughts to share with other people. The author hopes you are blessed by reading and sharing these thoughts, as he has been from compiling and writing them. "A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good it is!" (KJV, Proverbs 15:23)

G I Who Book Review:

Twenty-two-year-old Romanian Stefan Babamikyam wants nothing more than to fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming a G.I. Joe in the United States Army. But with little command of the English language and American culture, Stefan arrives in the United States completely unprepared for what he is about to face. Left to his own devices in a strange land, Stefan soon embarks on a comical journey that tests his inner strength, patience, and perseverance. After he spends a rather frightening night in a strange woman’s house, Stefan finds shelter with another family, who soon introduces him to Father Hannigan, a kindly priest who offers to help Stefan with his English. As Stefan secures a job and settles into his new life—keeping up a steady correspondence with his girlfriend, Tatiana, back in Romania—Father Hannigan takes him to meet an Army recruiter who promises to prepare him both physically and mentally for boot camp. But no one knows that Stefan is harboring a secret that, when it comes to light, may draw the eyes of Army Counterintelligence. G. I. Who? shares the compelling journey of a foreign army recruit as he adjusts to life in America and soon discovers that nothing is ever as easy as it seems.

LITTLE BY LITTLE Book Review:

In order to defeat debt; you must first face the fact that you are in debt. If you are living from paycheck to paycheck, struggling to make ends meet, juggling one bill to pay another and dodging your creditors; you need help taking control of your finances. Ignoring your debt will not make it disappear; you have to face the giant in order to slay the giant. You need to know where your money is going. You need to know how deep in debt you really are. You need to know your debt to income ratio. If you are spending more than you are making; that is a huge problem! You can’t keep doing the same thing expecting different results. It is time to become proactive in controlling your finances. It is our responsibility to know where we stand financially. Wisdom is the principle thing; in all our getting we are to get an understanding. Good people sometimes make bad decisions. A few poor choices and bad decisions do not mean we can’t recover. It is never too late to make a change for the better. It is never too late to make a U-turn. Little by little we can be released from the prison of debt. Little by little we can rebuild our credit. Little by little our finances can be restored. God never intended for us to be held captive by debt. He called us to be the head and not the tail, above and not beneath, lenders and not borrowers. With faith, hard work, tenacity and diligence; we can be restored to our rightful place as lenders and not borrowers. We have to do more than talking, wishing and hoping, “In all labor there is profit, but idle chatter leads only to poverty” (Prov12:23). We have to do the work that is required to get us out of debt and back on the right track. Faith without works is dead! Show your faith by your works. Faith requires action on our part, “For as the body without the Spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead” (James2:26).Wrong decisions got us into debt; right decisions will get us out of debt. We have to be doers of the Word and not hearers only! Just the thought of budgeting causes stress and anxiety for many people. The task of budgeting can seem insurmountable. We oftentimes have no idea where to begin, so we give up before we ever get started. Little by Little was written to help the average person who doesn’t have a large checking or savings account change their perception of debt, budgeting and saving. If you can change your thinking, you can change your life! Each generation should progressively get better; the only way we can accomplish this is by not repeating the same mistakes over and over again. Make the decision today to break the generational curse of debt and poverty from your life. In this book you’ll find easy to use worksheets that will allow you to maintain your budget, track your expenses, build your savings and note your progress. You’ll be encouraged throughout this book by the Word of God. Scriptures are strategically placed to help you stay motivated throughout your journey to becoming financially responsible. Do not despise small beginnings; you didn’t get this deep in debt overnight and you won’t get out of debt overnight. Be patient in the process; we want a permanent change, not a quick fix! May God bless the work of your hands!

Franny and Zooey Book Review:

"Perhaps the best book by the foremost stylist of his generation" (New York Times), J. D. Salinger's Franny and Zooey collects two works of fiction about the Glass family originally published in The New Yorker. "Everything everybody does is so--I don't know--not wrong, or even mean, or even stupid necessarily. But just so tiny and meaningless and--sad-making. And the worst part is, if you go bohemian or something crazy like that, you're conforming just as much only in a different way." A novel in two halves, Franny and Zooey brilliantly captures the emotional strains and traumas of entering adulthood. It is a gleaming example of the wit, precision, and poignancy that have made J. D. Salinger one of America's most beloved writers.

Letters to Others Book Review:

In this era of digital communication, sometimes we tell our best stories via e-mail. Laura Tremblay, an astute observer and adventure lover, has collected some of her favourite tales in this volume. Originally sent to friends and family, the anecdotes document the weird and wonderful aspects of both the everyday and the exceptional. The stories are candid, unfiltered, and down to earth. To her, everything is an adventure and her retellings are tinged with her unique sense of humour, thus evoking laughter even at the otherwise mundane. Tremblay’s stories will ring especially true for others who seek adventure and who want to be sure to enjoy some laughs along the way.
