Book Review: "You Were Born for This" by Bruce Wilkinson

Many people ask:

"Do miracles really happen?"
"How can I be a part of today's miracles?"
"Should I just continue doing good deeds on my own?"

I enjoy doing thing for others, and I always want to do things that will have an eternal impact. But miracles?  I wasn't sure if true miracles happened today.

After the first chapter of this book, I was hooked and wanted to know more about today's miracles. Wilkinson explains with great narratives that we should always expect miracles! We were born to do God's work by God's power and we can do things that will have a heavenly impact.  As I read, I was impacted by the fact that so many things could be passing us by that could be God's nudging toward helping Him make a miracle!

Wilkinson's stories of real events of miracles show how easily we can be a part of God's miracles for others.  I highly recommend that you get this book for your library and read it more than once!

Book Review: "The Blessing" by John Trent and Gary Smalley

As a parent, add this book to your top ten list!

John Trent, in this revised and updated edition of the book, explains in great detail the importance of giving your child special blessings as they are growing up. A blessing is a great gift of unconditional love and acceptance that can transform the future of your child.

By using the Old Testament story of Jacob receiving the first born blessing from his father Issac, Dr. Trent explains the importance of the blessing and the five elements to understanding the blessing.   While this is a wonderful lesson on how to parent your own children, what if you did not receive the benefit of a blessing from your parents?  Dr. Trent explains what happens if you missed that important element of your younger years.

I highly recommend this books to parents of children of all ages -- it is a vital part of parenting our kids that we don't want to miss out on!
