I have to say this is not normally a book I would read, I chose to review it because my dear hubby seen it in a CBD magazine and was very interested in this book. Growing up the picture of Jesus that was portrayed to me was a very gentle and meek man that journeyed thru life to save us from our sins. This book takes a deeper look at Jesus Christ, it looks at the spiritual battle that is going on unseen by us. He was more than just a teacher, he was fighting a battle for us by choosing to come down to earth and take our sins on his shoulders. Jesus came down to do a global rescue mission to rescue the lost.
If you are searching for your purpose in life, check this book out it will make you take a second look at what you thought was a meek and mild faith.
A great big thank you to Blogging for Books for this book for free in exchange for a review.
There truly is hope out there for all broken and lost marriages, Clint and Penny Bragg are living proof that a broken and lost marriage can be healed. It is not going to be easy to rebuild a marriage, it will take alot of work for the husband and wife to restore what has been lost. This book is a very hand y tool to have when working toward restoration in a marriage. It provides hope for those who feel all is lost and there is nothing else they can do to save what they have lost. Reading about the Bragg’s and their amazing story gives us a ray of light in the darkness that surrounds us. I recommend this book to anyone struggling in their marriage.

My childhood memories are a mixture of wonderful, good and some very harsh memories. One of those harsh memories has to do with a simple mistake in a recipe for pineapple upside down cake. To this day I do not know for sure what I did wrong, but it triggered a very violent response from my mother. From that day on I did not ever want to try to make the cake for the harsh memory of having a mixer thrown at me. Several years after I was married, my dear hubby told me that one of his favorite cakes was a pineapple upside down cake. It was at this time I realized I had to face a past memory and make a new memory out of something very harsh. I made the choice to attempt to make a pineapple upside down cake for the second time in my life. My second attempt actually turned out better than I thought it would.
There are times we have to do something in our lives that carries a very harsh memory, it may be forgiving someone for something they did to us or even just making a cake that carries a bad memory for us. It is a chance for us to make new memories to replace old ones in our lives. This is the time of year of celebrations and giving of gifts, also it is the time to make memories with those we hold precious to our hearts.
