Book Review 3

Hey guys! I am so excited to share this next book with you guys. Now I got this book from my lovely mother for my birthday back in December and I read most of it during my Christmas break and then when I went back to school I got so busy with my internship and school that I wasn’t able to finish it but tonight I picked it up and was able to finish it.

The book I’m reviewing today is called i am n. It is about the true stories of Christians who face Muslim extremists. This book is so powerful and will bring tears to your eyes. The stories in this book are so horrific and it’s hard to believe how these Christians are being persecuted.

So before I go on, I would like to explain the title of the book. I was confused by the title at first but “n” stands for the Arabic letter muslim extremists use to identity Christians.

One of the stories in the book that really touched my heart is chapter 32 called “Point-Blank Forgiveness” and it takes place in Nigeria. Habila Adamu and his family were sleeping in their house one night when they were invaded by radical muslims. They demanded that Habila gather his family outside. They asked if Habila was a christian or muslim and he said christian. The radical muslims told him to change his answer or he would be killed. Habila stated once again that he was a christian and they shot him in the head and left. Habila’s wife bent down to him and Habila told her that he was still alive. Through the grace of God Habila lived and is able to go on and tell his story.

This book is full of stories very similar to Habila’s. I think this book is so important because the world, especially Americans, need to see the persecution christians go through by radical muslims. This book is full of stories but these are only just a few. Go read this book and pass it along! It’s also available as an Ebook for those kindle lovers out there.

Also the authors are from a nonprofit organization called “The voice of martyrs”that offer help to persecuted christians. I say that because across the top of the book it says “The voice of martyrs” and because it’s a great organization!

Also there is a website: “i-am-n.com” go check it out!

 

Devotional

I can’t be the only one who suffers from anxiety and needs encouragement on days when I’m really anxious.

Being a college student, working an internship, being involved in different organizations life can get kind of hectic and can cause anyone to be worrisome or anxious. I have found a few verses that I wanted to share for when I am suffering from anxiety.

A lot of the time anxiety can stem from not fully trusting God and his plan. God has a perfect plan for your life and you have to willing to trust Him. Proverbs 29:25 says that “Fear of man will prove to be snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.” This verse speaks for itself. God succeeds fear, trust in Him.

A lot of the time we spend too much time worrying about tomorrow and getting anxious about things that haven’t even happened or things that are out of our control. Matthew 6:34 says “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Take things one step at a time and trust God.

Now, my favorite verse of all time John 16:33. This verse is amazing and can instantly calm any anxious mind. It says “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” This verse is so powerful to me. Even though I’m a Christian, it doesn’t mean all my problems go away but it does me that I can face my problems with God which is so comforting.

Last but not least, Proverbs 12:25 says “Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up.” Kindness, support and words of encouragement are a great way to combat anxiety. Jesus can give you the perfect words of encouragement when you pray and talk to him.

God gives us the solutions to all of our problems in His word. He gives us the solutions that no therapy can.

Book Review #2

I am so beyond excited to write this review, I literally read this book in 2 days it would’ve been shorter if I hadn’t been reading another book along with it.

Drain the Swamp by Ken Buck… such an insightful book, I think every American should read this. This book takes you through how Congress is currently acting with America’s finances and how it should be acting with it.

So Congress is sometimes labeled “the purse” and that’s because they are supposed to deal with how our money should be spent but instead Congress only cares about themselves and getting reelected. This is why Congress should have term limits because it supposed to be a service not a career. This book takes you through the corruption of how the government is spending our money. Congressman Buck takes you through how Congress hasn’t proposed a balanced budget in years and how we have been funding unauthorized programs (which isn’t illegal).  I absolutely love this book because Congressmen Buck actually explains how we can “drain the swamp.” Literally gives step by step. Honestly this book will terrify you a little bit when you read about all the corruption that goes on but hopefully it will help wake up the American people. Our Founding Fathers did not want the federal government to have so much power so it’s our job, as the states, to take back our power.

Seriously, go read it.

Comey Hearing

Comey Hearing

James Comey is the former FBI Director who was released of his duties on May 9 of this year (2017).

He had a hearing in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee basically surrounding the speculation of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Basically this is all you need to know.

  1. He confirmed that there was no investigation on President Trump and his actions.
  2. Comey stated he wrote memos of President Trumps conversation. He claimed he did this because he didn’t want the president to lie.
  3. He then claimed that he sent the memo to a friend and the friend leaked the memo
  4. Comey would not share information about Jeff Sessions & Russia
  5. Comey said he believed he was fired because of the Russia investigation
  6. In reference to #5, he also claimed he heard the president say so
  7. Comey admitted to AG Lynch asking him to call the Clinton email investigation a “matter” instead of “open criminal investigation.”
  8. MOST IMPORTANTLY  Comey stated that Russia had no interference in the 2016 election.

Although theres much more to the hearing than the 8 statements listed above, I do think those are the most important ones.

So basically to summarize there is still NO proof to the Russia allegations but of course liberals will still convince citizens otherwise.

So basically the leftist narrative was destroyed

Book Review #1

So if you’re like me reading is your favorite hobby and especially now since I’m out of school for the summer I have a little bit more time to read all the books on my list. Today I’m going to review Women Who Work by Ivanka Trump, which I’m sure most of you have heard of. I’m going to be honest I didn’t really plan on reading her book at first because I like reading so I can further my education and her book is not one that I would normally read but I decided to pick it up and give it a shot. I have to say I did enjoy the book, however I wouldn’t consider it one of my favorites. Ivanka is very successful & works very hard and she gives some great advice on the steps to become successful and balancing work, family and social life but she did grow up in a very privileged life. She also addresses that she grew up more privileged than most but I also believe she has a great work ethic which is why she is so successful today. This book isn’t the miracle answer to becoming a millionaire but I do think it is very motivational and is a great place to start. This book is also super versatile you can read it and take notes from it no matter what point in your career you’re at. I think everyone can benefit from the business tips she address in her books. This book is truly inspiring for working women everywhere. It was such an easy read and I had a hard time putting it down. I would read a couple chapters on my lunch break at work and it was so inspiring and put me in such a positive mood to finish out the rest of my work day. Highly recommend this book to any working women, none of us are perfect and it’s good to be able to get advice from a very successful business woman.
