A Life Beyond Amazing, Book Review


A Life Beyond Amazing by Dr. David Jeremiah

Are you ready to become the person God has called you to be?  In A Life Beyond Amazing, bestselling author Dr. David Jeremiah uncovers God’s strategy for change and challenges you to make nine important decisions that will transform your heart, your life, and your world.
This life-changing book explores the nine qualities of character that carry us forward. Three of these have to do with our relationship with ourselves, three deal with interactions with other people, and three of them focus on our relationship with God.  Spiritual principles are true in any situation. But we must make a conscious decision to employ them in our daily lives.
God has given us wisdom for these days.  A Life Beyond Amazing answers the questions that keep us up at night and shows that the way forward is a reminder of who we are in Christ and why it matters. 


My Thoughts: First of all I did receive this book for review, but all opinions are my own. It is a paperback book and has beautiful artwork on the cover. There are so many things that are eyeopening about this book and the chapters are put together so well. It's a book that you'll want to read more than once and pass on to a friend. 

Beauty in the Breakdown, Book Review

Beauty in the Breakdown by Julie Roberts

Country music singer Julie Roberts is no stranger to overcoming hard times through determination, hard work, and strength. Having escaped the emotional residue of her alcoholic father’s actions and insults, Julie moved from South Carolina to Nashville, Tennessee, to attend Belmont University and work as a receptionist at Mercury Records—all while secretly pursuing her dream of becoming a singer. Filling her nights with music and booking shows at obscure venues, the one requirement when Julie was hired at Universal Music Group was that she not be an aspiring singer. Yet, despite her best efforts to keep quiet, Julie knew God had placed music within her as a child and that it was bound to come out sooner or later. Raw, honest, and sometimes painful, Julie’s lyrics resonated quickly with country music fans, and her emotion-soaked debut album—a reflection of her own painful past—was an instant success.
Just as Julie’s dreams were coming true, her life began to unravel. Soon, she was battling debilitating physical illness, the rising waters of Nashville’s hundred-year flood, and a stalled career. Instead of succumbing to despair, Julie proved miraculously resilient—taking the steps she needed to face adversity head on and rebuild her life through her characteristic optimism, hard work, and faith. 
Journey with Julie as she walks through the highs and lows of her career, the personal struggles she’s endured, the lessons she’s learned, and her sense of purpose as she rebuilds her singing career and contributes her voice to the work of supporting others with multiple sclerosis. Julie’s courage combined with her joyful personality and love for God will encourage readers in a uniquely powerful way. 

My Thoughts: While I didn't personally know anything about Julie Roberts (although I had heard a few of her songs, I'd never placed them with a person) I was interested in reading the book when I saw a little bit of her story. So when the publisher offered me the chance to read her book of course I was interested. Her life goes through hardships and reading through the journey with her is so inspiring. While I found her  stories of fame interesting struggling though her illness is what made the book for me. 

Footwear for Pregnancy




As an expectant mom who suffers from foot edema you certainly have noticed that the footwear market offers no real options for pregnancy, so that the pregnant women have to buy shoes in bigger sizes or even men shoes to accommodate the foot swelling both in length and in width. The available footwear options also force you to give up style for comfort.
Pregnidos, which is a German brand, has been questioning these facts and has been developing suitable and comfortable footwear for a healthy pregnancy. Their high-quality shoes are designed to adapt flexibly to the swelling of the feet and ankles while looking trendy and beautiful. 


The Pregnidos shoes offer a great user experience, being easy to put on so that you as a pregnant woman don’t have to bend long over your baby belly and get tired and uncomfortable. They adjust to the foot volume, which adds to the feeling of comfort and wellbeing, and are particularly safe to the mother and baby due to their anti-slip rubber sole. Pregnidos also protect from back pain due to their moderate, very comfortable wedges. They can also be worn after the pregnancy thanks to their smart, adaptable system which allows the shoes to adjust to the foot also after the swelling decreases.
The shoes are handmade of premium natural materials in a traditional factory in Portugal. The brand values comfort, function and style in their shoes and its owner, Cristian Diaconu says that Pregnidos has been created to add value to the wellbeing of pregnant women who should maintain their health and active lifestyle up to the end of their pregnancy and beyond that.

The Nehemiah Code, Book Review

Who isn’t in need of a new beginning? Bestselling author O. S. Hawkins knows that whether it be broken relationships, integrity missteps, or loss, most of us will spend some or much of the next year trying to restore something. The good news is . . . it’s never too late for a new beginning.
Hawkins, with more than 550,000 books sold, now turns his eye to another biblical hero in The Nehemiah Code. Nehemiah was a civil servant from 2,500 years ago who applied principles found in the Bible for insight during hard times, help to start again, and encouragement to rebuild a life.
The Nehemiah Code dives into a theme that will resonate deeply with a wide variety of readers -  insight during hard times, help to start again, and encouragement to rebuild a life. Topics include: 
  • Taking personal responsibility
  • Moving out of your comfort zone
  • Rebuilding team spirit
  • Holding those around you accountable
  • Doing what is right
  • Finishing strong
Proceeds of the book go directly to the ministry Mission:Dignity, which helps more than 1,800 retired ministers, church workers, and widows who have faithfully served God’s people and now find themselves struggling to meet even basic needs.

My Thoughts: I did receive this book to review from the publisher but all thoughts are my own. Self help books can either be amazing, or the exact opposite. It never seems like there's much in-between. Luckily The Nehemiah Code falls into the the better category. There are a lot of teachable points for leadership and management. The chapters are short, and easy to read without a huge time investment.
