Book Review: Overcome Failure: Get Back on Your Feet

Author Ifeoma Samuel’s new book, Overcome Failure, is a must have for anyone who is human.  Don’t we all fail and find it hard to pick ourselves back up?  Especially if it’s a red face blunder type of failure and I think just about every one of us has experienced that in life.

The author reminds us who we are and to whom we belong:  trust God.  We don’t have to be perfect; God is the perfect one!

I like declarations from God’s Word and speak them over my life to remind myself of true reality.  Declarations from the Word are included here.

The advice to overcome critics helps me to know that if criticism evokes growth, I keep it.  If it is not meant for good, it should be discarded.

The author suggests ways to overcome embarrassing situations.  I have found myself in loads of those and checked off the list of what to do!

I nodded in agreement with this book when it comes to fear of failure and ways to overcome.  My favorites were saturating myself with God’s Word, really believing it!   The other is developing an attitude of gratitude.

I liked the emphasis on God’s Word, not just positive thoughts and statements.   Clever positive words have never held their strength compared to the power of what God says.  There is nothing like His promises!

The ending of this book targets faith and I know developing faith always overcomes fear.  Faith gets us to the finish line.

I highly recommend Overcome Failure.  It comes with a companion study guide and will be available for purchase on August 16, 2016.

Great Redemption Story

Those stories, the ones we start to read and can’t put down, reel us in to another place in time with characters who seem alive.  We smell the scenes and visualize their emotions.  We want to shout out to them, to warn them or cheer them on!  Pebbles in my Way felt like a realistic, personal story. 

Author Alice Klies writes beautifully.  Her fiction story revolves around a main character, Karen, who found herself in trials from her past choices.  God puts the right people in her path and her opposition to the true gospel turns around.  This beautiful story of redemption portrayed in the mountains of Scottsdale, AZ, shows that God is a personal God who cares about His children.  No stuffy religious dialogue, this story unveils hope for the downtrodden. 

Karen looks like any woman caught in confusion and grief, but when she finds Jesus her life takes on new adventures!

I highly recommend this novel.

Book Review: Treasures of the Kingdom

Treasures of the Kingdom is the second book in the Kingdom Series, written by Author Cho Larson.  The book features a Biblical explanation of the Holy Spirit’s role in the Christian Church as well as the role of the Holy Spirit in the life of a Christian believer.
Larson’s teaching is clear.  He uses Scripture with examples to point out the true objective of God’s purpose for us in the Body of Christ to not only live powerfully with the help of the Holy Spirit in our everyday lives, but fellowship corporately with the intentional purpose to honor a holy God with the free flowing gifts of the Holy Spirit.
How do we enter into worship that our God so deserves?
What are the steps of true worship?
How do I know how to serve God with the gifts He provides?
How do I break free of all the fleshly trappings that bind me so I can worship freely and serve a Holy God?
What does a healthy church look like when believers follow the Biblical requirements of gathering corporately and allowing the Holy Spi…
