What Happens After You Die By Randy Frazee Review

30649431

What Happens After You Die A Biblical Guide to Paradise, Hell, and Life After Death
By Randy Frazee

Popular pastor Randy Frazee answers perennial questions about life after death with an accessible exploration of what the Bible has to say on the subject.


In both Christian and pop culture, there is a certain fascination with the afterlife. What happens after you die? What happens if you die with Christ or without Christ? What happens when Jesus returns if you have or haven’t accepted Christ? What exactly comes next?


Randy Frazee, popular pastor of Oak Hills Church and general editor of the wildly successful Believe and The Story programs, answers these questions and more. Born out of a deeply personal search for truth after the death of his mother, What Happens After You Die is a straightforward exploration of what the Bible says about life after death. From heaven and hell to the Lake of Fire and the actual presence of God, Frazee uncovers what is simply cultural tradition and what is truly biblical. He shows readers not only the death Jesus came to save us from but the life he came to save us for.


Based on a teaching series that has had more online views than any other series Frazee has done to date, What Happens After You Die is a guide to the perennial questions about life and death, what comes next, and how we should live until then.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- Based on the author's thoughts and the Bible to back it up, this extremely faith centered book offers the readers a glimpse of what may happen after death,  The book will be powerful if you believe in the topic and can follow the passages etc, provided by the author.

A Selfish Plan to Change the World By Justin Dillon Review

33027981

A Selfish Plan to Change the World Finding Big Purpose in Big Problems
By Justin Dillon

You are exactly what the world needs

What if your search for meaning could solve the world's problems? What if everything you are passionate about could save a life or change history? Justin Dillon argues it can, and A Selfish Plan to Change the World shows how.

In this paradigm-shifting new book, Dillon--the founder of Slavery Footprint and Made in a Free World--reveals the secret to a life of deep and lasting significance: the discovery that our need for meaning is inextricably linked to the needs of the world. A Selfish Plan to Change the World delivers a revolutionary method for meeting both needs.

Drawing upon his own unlikely transformation from touring musician to founder of a global movement and telling the stories of other surprising world-changers, Dillon shows how to create a life of deep purpose by stepping into the problems of the world. Taking readers on a journey from sweatshops in India to punk rock concerts in Ireland, Dillon exposes the limitations of the "giving back" approach involving donations and volunteerism to reveal the unexpected power of "giving in" to pursue self-interest in a way that alters the very dynamics of the world's most challenging problems.

A Selfish Plan to Change the World is your "self-help-others" guide to a life that matters, demonstrating how you can repurpose your existing talents, backstory, and networks to improve the lives of others. Changing the world no longer belongs only to martyrs and professional do-gooders. You can live an extraordinary life. You can change the world. All you ever needed was a plan.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- It is so hard to think about all of the worries and woes that this world has without being overwhelmed with a need to do more to help.  What if you are poor or can not get out to find the right ways to do so?  What if you are stuck in a situation where you just think you can not help out at all?  This book does not direct you, but can open a few more choices that may help you rest your mind and find a way to be more helpful.  Obviously we cannot all be like the author or have the advantages to do so, but even the smallest seed can grow strong!


The Heirs By Susan Rieger Review


Brilliantly wrought, incisive, and stirring, The Heirs tells the story of an upper-crust Manhattan family coming undone after the death of their patriarch

Six months after Rupert Falkes dies, leaving a grieving widow and five adult sons, an unknown woman sues his estate, claiming she had two sons by him.  The Falkes brothers are pitched into turmoil, at once missing their father and feeling betrayed by him.  In disconcerting contrast, their mother, Eleanor, is cool and calm, showing preternatural composure.

Eleanor and Rupert had made an admirable life together -- Eleanor with her sly wit and generosity, Rupert with his ambition and English charm -- and they were proud of their handsome, talented sons: Harry, a brash law professor; Will, a savvy Hollywood agent; Sam, an astute doctor and scientific researcher; Jack, a jazz trumpet prodigy; Tom, a public-spirited federal prosecutor. The brothers see their identity and success as inextricably tied to family loyalty – a loyalty they always believed their father shared. Struggling to reclaim their identity, the brothers find Eleanor’s sympathy toward the woman and her sons confounding. Widowhood has let her cast off the rigid propriety of her stifling upbringing, and the brothers begin to question whether they knew either of their parents at all.

A riveting portrait of a family, told with compassion, insight, and wit, The Heirs wrestles with the tangled nature of inheritance and legacy for one unforgettable, patrician New York family. Moving seamlessly through a constellation of rich, arresting voices, The Heirs is a tale out Edith Wharton for the 21st century.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  If you thought your family was difficult to be with, imagine an upscale money hungry family filled with mysterious plots that are going to draw you into the book.

KEYSOCKS Review

KEYSOCKS are a new sock that covers the bottom of your foot, your heel and pulls up the leg so it won¹t slip off, with a keyhole cut out on the top of the foot so the sock remains invisible inside your shoe, just like a no-show footie but with more stability.

I received complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review-   Depending on your choice of shoes these can be really comfortable.  The material does cause a little foot sweat and so I did change these a few times in between wear.  I found that my more narrow shoes did not quite feel good at the toes with these because of the sewn line and the shoe kind of mashing together.

If you have really thick legs, these might be tight.    I see where this is a great concept, but I prefer cotton for socks and also I like a more concealed foot.  If you love to have the bare top of your foot showing and have thinner legs as well as comfort in the material these will really help.

Cassandra's Review-  Even if you do not want your kids to sell things, this book is filled with recipes and crafts that your whole family will enjoy and are super kid friendly.   It would be perfect for party planning as well.  You can also prepare everything on a super tight budget.  

I really enjoy the easy to see photo that explain the directions as well as how easy it is for younger kids to read and follow which means more time having fun and not frustrating the children.  

Photography Interview with Matthew David Parker

Photography Interview with Matthew David Parker

I want to thank Matthew for taking time to stop by the blog today for a Q&A!

1. What is the best time of day to take a photo?

The best time of day to take photos will depend on the sunlight. Lighting can change the atmosphere of any photograph, and natural lighting can change quickly throughout the day. Typically, just before sunrise and just after sunset are the best times for outdoor photography, as this is when the light is the least harsh. These two hours of the day are known as the “golden hours” in photography. Conversely, at midday, when the sun is directly overhead and the light is the harshest, is the worst time to shoot.


2. Do you have a tip for preventing lighting glare?

Glare is caused by a phenomenon known as “lens flare.” If light, from the sun or an artificial light, hits the front of camera lens you will almost always get flare. There are two types of flare, with the first being “specular flare” that looks like streaks or circular blobs or the image. The other type of flare is called “veiling flare.” This is where light sneaks into the darker, or shadow areas, of a photograph. Veiling flare is usually more subtle than specular flare, and typically happens when a subject has too much backlight, such as shooting into the sun.


The only way to avoid flare is too prevent direct light from hitting the camera leans. Outdoors, use a lens shade and don’t shoot in the direction of the sun. Indoors, position artificial lights so the light hits the subject from an angle.


3. Is there a certain way to hold your camera for a best angle?

Changing the angle of the camera can help tell the story. Shooting from different positions, such as above or below the subject, can add dramatic effect to a photograph. Shoot from a lower angle if you are trying to make a subject look larger than life, whereas shooting from above can create an awe-inspiring scene. As when taking any photo, be sure the camera is supported properly to avoid a blurry image. Bend your elbow and brace your arm against your body if you don’t have a tripod.



4. Can you take a quality picture with an iPhone or other device?

The answer is both yes and no. Smartphone- and tablet-camera technology continues to improve each year. Good-quality photos are possible, provided the phone’s camera has a high enough resolution. However, professional-quality results will typically not be achievable with a Smartphone. Here are few tips:

• Focus on one specific subject, making it the main object in the frame and try to keep your backgrounds as simple as possible. This may mean moving closer to or farther away from the subject.


• Find a camera app that allows you control of exposure.


• While it may seem a little silly, as the expression goes, “It’s not the violin, it’s the violinist.” In other words, practice taking pictures with your phone until you are proficient. That way, you’ll be ready when the opportunity for the perfect shot presents itself.



5. Would you recommend taking photos while the image is moving or how can you?


Like all aspects of photography, shooting a moving subject just takes practice. However, the time spent learning this technique is well worth it, as it can add a real sense of drama to a shot. What you want to accomplish is make the subject appear static while blurring the background, so as to add a sense of speed to the photo. Center the subject in the viewfinder and pan, or move, the camera to keep the subject in the same spot in the viewfinder while you snap the photo.
