How to Hear the Voice of God
By Mark Batterson
God still speaks to His people. Mark Batterson will help you in hearing Gods voice. In this book Mark teaches the seven love languages of God. Sign language, Scripture, Desires, Doors, Dreams, People, Promptings and Pain. He also shows how God will whisper instead of speaking loud or using loud noises. Mark shares some stories and experiences from his life and from other people that he knows. He shares many times that God spoke to him in his ministry and even as a young boy. One of the points of this book is to show us that God love us. The information in this book will help in your walk with God.
Near the end of the book Mark writes;
“Believe it or not, God love you.
He actually likes you.
In fact, He’s especially fond of you.
And that’s why He whispers.”
The book can be used as a study or in a discussion group, a great way to learn God’s way and the power of whispering. It shows that God does not have to be loud to hear Him.

BLOOM
Where You’re Planted
By Mary Rodman
A collection of stories and God’s moments that the author has experienced and wants to share with the reader. The collection covers different subjects and can be a help to all who reads them. She shares how her experiences has helped her grow as a believer and gave her hope many times. The collection can be read as a devotional or just for that moments you need a little encouragement. I found different ones very helpful. There is a table of contents that can be used to direct you to a certain subject in case you want to share a story with your family, friends or study group. They are easy to read with down to earth writing which makes them easy to understand. I think you will enjoy the stories and information the author shares. As the author writes in the introduction:
“Sometimes life offers us sorrow and pain. Though walking through the difficulties of life be can trying, it is during these times that we grow the most. God didn’t promise that all our days would be filled with joy, but He did promise to always be with us.” She hopes her book will help all in need.
The ebook I received was easy to navigate and to take along on trips for those times you wanted to have something to read.

The Master’s Mind

41N3fgehC7L._AC_US327_QL65_THE MASTER’S MIND
The Art of Reshaping Your Thoughts
By Lance Hahn
Sometimes we are confused, depressed and insecure, this is not what God wants for us. Lance Hahn has given us a book that will help us. We need to understand that God created our minds to give us a better plan for using our minds. Lance give us a method of changing our direction to follow, to gain what is there for us in following God. He shares some stories and gives scripture to help us. This book shows the way our minds need to be directed and offers help with temptations, where our thoughts should be and to rely on God for help in all we have problems with.
I think this book will help us all to condition our thoughts to the way God want for us and to help us in our everyday life. God doesn’t want us to follow the wrong path, but sometimes we follow our own thoughts and end up at the wrong place. It can be used in Bible studies and Bible discussion groups, make a great book for Sunday school class. It defiantly will make you stop and think about what you are reading.

The Christmas Code

_140_245_Book.2353.coverTHE CHRISTMAS CODE
Daily Devotions Celebrating the Advent Season
By O. S. Hawkins
This is a small book filled with important information about the Advent Season. The book contains devotions drawn from The Believers Code, which is a 365-day devotional to unlock the blessing of God. If you never celebrated the Advent Season, this would be a good book to start with and if you celebrate Advent, add this to your celebration. This will help to bring peace and joy to your celebration. The Advent Season starts 25 days before Christmas, a time to celebrate and prepare for the coming of the Christ.
Each devotion page starts with a Bible verse and adds a short devotion and a code word for each day. It makes a great study and will help give a understanding to the season and why we celebrate Christmas. This book is the right size and is priced right [the review copy I received showed a USD price of $2.99] for you to give it as a gift or as a addition gift to those on your gift list. It is a great way to share the Gospel and the Christmas story with friends and family.

The Assault

THE ASSAULT
Harbingers Cycle Two
By Bill Myers, Frank Peretti, Angela Hunt, Alton Gansky
This is the second book of a series written by four different authors. The story is about four people, working as a team to fight evil that is trying to take over the world. The four are from different walks of life, a tattoo artist, a professor, professor’s assistant and ex-football player but they all work very well together. Each section is narrated by a different person of the team and written by a different author, but is done in a way that they all blend together to make one story. This book start in the Vatican, goes to Florida and end in California. The evil they come against is very unbelievable and can be considered sci-fi, houses that turn to liquid, animal and people taken over by a fungus and different evil people under the control of something or someone, trying to take over.
If you enjoy horror or sci-fi you may enjoy this book. I like sci-fi but some of the things in this book are just a little weird. Very little about God is shared in the book, there is only one of the four that is a true believer and shares his beliefs. No profanity or sexual overtones are in the book. Good reading for this type of book, built up suspense and the story holds your interest.
