You Will Want to Buy This Book!

Your Money God’s Way by Amie Streater

Our reviews are generally about 200 words. So far that’s been enough for me.I’ve never before appreciated a book so much that I wanted to write two reviews for it, just so I could use more words! This book is it.The solution? Buy the book- ASAP.This is tough love money talk from a pastor who cares about how God’s people handle money.
It is truth we all need to hear and it is not like any other money book you have read.
She tells us truth like this.
If you are just plain stupid with your money, it is not God’s fault.
If you aren’t grateful for what you have,you won’t be grateful for more.
How we use money is a barometer of our spiritual condition.
The problem is never money and the answer is always God.
Saying no to a controlling, manipulative person does not yield pleasant results. They will accuse you of lacking compassion, not caring and even question your salvation..all in the name of getting you to cough up assistance one more time. Buy the book. It will change your life..
I do wish it had a study guide to go along with it so easier taught.

The Butterfly Effect by Andy Andrews

What a stimulus for those of us who feel like our lives have no meaning. Oh, come on, admit it. I’m not the only one.

This  book traces the Law of Sensitive Dependence upon Initial Conditions in a few lives. For instance, The author makes the case that if Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain hadn’t held his men firmly in line at Gettysburg, July 2, 1863, North America would have become a fractured slew of several small countries and unable to save the world from extinction during World War Two.

I agree with his story while certain Canadian annoyances fester in my heart. (Americans joined the war at the last minute and contrary to popular American opinion, they did not save the world alone!)

That aside, I do get a new sense that living my life to its fullest does make a difference to the world. My smallest gesture is a life-changing moment impacting generations to come.

As the author says, everything we do matters. Every action we make, and every action we take matters to all of us, forever.

So what are you doing today that will make a difference everywhere? Everything.

Right now, Canadians are fussing over whether we should bother filling out census forms.  The government makes decisions based on  information gathered. Generations  have to live with those actions.

Yes, we matter. Our life matters. Every decision matters.  ‘Write’ on, Andy.
