My Review:
This book is such a great book with 218 pages, of those 218 pages in the back there are 6 pages blank with lines so you can take some notes in the back. The average is about 4 pages per area in this book, for example "Healthy Living"  is 105-109. I am a mother of two little girls , both are VERY different from each other and I needed this little book more than I thought I did. I have been in need of confidence , help with worry, and my health is not the best either so this book has been a life saver for me. Each area has bible references then the last page is a devotion thought on the area your reading. I would recommend this to ALL moms, With that being said Mothers Day is fast approaching this would make a great gift for mom!

I received this material free in exchange I write my honest opinion on this material.

REVIEW: In the Middle of the Mess By Sheila Walsh

In the Middle of the Mess: Strength for This Beautiful, Broken Life

Book Description

How do you turn your struggles into strengths? Beloved Bible teacher Sheila Walsh teaches readers how the daily spiritual practices of confession, meditation on God’s Word, and prayer result in fresh freedom in Christ.
In her long-awaited new book, Sheila Walsh equips women with a practical method for connecting with God’s strength in the midst of struggle. From daily frustrations that can feel like overwhelming obstacles to hard challenges that turn into rock-bottom crises, women will find the means to equip themselves for standing strong with God. Using the spiritual applications of confession, prayer, and meditation on Scripture to form a daily connection to Jesus, women will learn how to experience new joy as a child of God who is fully known, fully loved, and fully accepted.
In In the Middle of the Mess, Walsh reveals the hardened defenses that kept her from allowing God into her deepest hurts and shares how entering into a safe place with God and practicing this daily connection with him have saved her from the devil’s prowling attacks. Though we will never be completely “fixed” on earth, we are continually held by Jesus, whatever our circumstances.

REVIEW
I LOVE how God has given Sheila the courage to write this book and the insight into Suicidal thoughts, and depression I pray whomever reads this will get a better insight on what these people go through on a daily basis. This book hit home with me because I suffer from Depression, and have since I was very young. Anxiety, stress, and ACT. All I can do is rely on God, he is the only one who can help me through my life. I recommend this book to those who struggle with depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, or feelings of inadequacy in their Christian walk.

REVIEW: Stronger than the Struggle: Uncomplicating Your Spiritual Battle Kindle Edition by Havilah Cunnington

Book Description

Stronger than the Struggle: Uncomplicating Your Spiritual Battle Kindle Edition

"Why do I still struggle if I'm faithfully following God?"
We all face challenges. On any given day, the problems of real life can take our breaths away. Our marriages, finances, relationships, and health are regular struggles, and that's just the beginning. Doesn't the Bible say the war has already been won? So why do we still battle?
In a down-to-earth, let’s-get-real approach, popular Bible teacher Havilah Cunnington cuts through the confusion and shows us how to 
  • Discern whether we’re dealing with battles within ourselves, resistance from God, or genuine fights with the Devil.
  • Throw off misconceptions about spiritual warfare, and understand what Jesus really said about our spiritual authority and the certainty we have in him.
  • Ask the right questions and build a realistic battle plan to win one day at a time.
With humor and honesty, Cunnington lays out practical tools to thrive in the face of hardship, enabling us to walk forward in the confidence that, because of Jesus, we really are stronger than the struggle.

REVIEW:
 I got the book thinking it was going to be about dealing with anxiety and emotions, but it turned out to be focused around the topic of spiritual warfare, but that's ok because I have been struggling the past 7 months and really needed this book! Have you ever had a book you just could not put down because it was that good? Well this book had me hooked once I started reading it. I truly loved the tools Havilah shared through this book, her stories she told were so filled with truth, and honesty. This book was so insightful, showing even Christians have times of struggle but it's ok because God is always here to wash away our struggles . This gem was very well written, and honestly a days read for me because the book has 225 pages. I would highly recommend this book, so please check it out and see for yourself how great this book is.

REVIEW: Praying the scriptures for your adult children



As parents of adult children, we often wonder: Will my children make good choices when they’re on their own? How can I let them go when I’ve held them for so long?
Parent and author Jodie Berndt understands what it’s like to release children into the world and still care deeply about them and everything they will face in life from relationships to career decisions and everything in between. In Praying the Scriptures for Your Adult Children, Jodie continues her Praying the Scriptures series with biblical prayers for your adult children, whether they are just leaving the nest, flying well on their own, or struggling to take off at all.
Each section focuses on a different aspect of adulthood, with encouraging stories from experienced parents who are praying their children through rocky marriages, health concerns, financial challenges and other real-life issues. At the end of each chapter, you’ll find personalized prayers for your children taken straight from Scripture. Each chapter also includes verses for you to pray for yourself as you take the challenging step of trusting God to care for your children in ways that you can’t.
With grace and wisdom, Jodie addresses cultural trends such as couples living together before marriage and young adults leaving the church, as well as the painful realities of loneliness, addiction, and mental health issues. With hope-filled words for the parents of the prodigal, she is particularly sensitive to the long-term prayers we offer, even as we doubt ourselves and grieve over our children’s choices.
Whatever you are praying for, you will find confidence and peace in these powerful prayers for your kids. Praying the Scriptures for Your Adult Children guides you to the bedrock of God’s promises as you release your children to God’s shepherding care.

My Review:
Jodie Berndt has crafted 20 specialized prayers that reflect the heart of a parent for their adult child in situations where extra grace, blessing, and mercy are needed. Prayers of general blessing are included, as well as prayers for your adult child’s relationships, health, safety, well-being, and prayers for your adult child’s victory over temptation.Even though I am not a parent of a grown child, I found this book full of great inspiring information. I like how it explains how a parent can only do so much, for example a parent can not help if the child looses it's way once they become an adult. I am not saying you give up on your child, instead pray the prayers in this book to help them find their ways back to Christ, or to just help them stay the direction of Christ. Personally my favorite was reading true , real stories along with scriptures to help finances, relationships, and much more. I would recommend this to anyone with grown adult children , as a matter of fact I have gifted this book to a dear friend of mine . 

I have received this material FREE n exchange for my honest opinions.

My Review:
I have reviewed a lot of Bible , what makes this bible different than the others? This bible is perfect for children down to the prayers in the bible, the prayer journal that comes with this bible, and the ease of reading and understanding what they are reading. I have a 9 year old who I have given a ton of bibles to but when I received this one she wanted it and gave me back a few of her other bibles and said here I don't like them mommy. My daughter has been taking this to church with her every time and really enjoy's this bible~! Take a look below and just looking at these photo's I think you can see why younger children  might like this bible compared to most bibles out there.
