Empire's End: A Novel of the Apostle Paul By Jerry B. Jenkins



Empire's End
Jerry B. Jenkins’s new novel is filled with adventure, drama, historic people and places, and even romance. Empire’s End tells the story of a man who single- handedly turned the Roman Empire on-end. It will be the heart-stopping story of the year! Only a few snapshots of Paul’s life are revealed in the Bible. In this fictional account, Jenkins tells of a devout Jewish scholar, who after only three years in the Arabian wilderness, emerges as the greatest Christian theologian in history. This novel explains how, after supervising the death of Jesus’s disciples, Paul would be moved to effectively conquer the Roman Empire with a message about a Jewish man named Jesus. You’ll be captured by the shocking “thorn in the flesh” that burdened Paul’s heart. Empire’s End will cause you to rethink whether Paul ever experienced the love of a woman or the embrace of a child.

Cassandra's review- The book is strong in faith based facts and kind of does not get to the ending in which the title of the book would be more so valid.  However if you like a good story and have quite a bit of time to read it, this is going to be great. Oh and the bloody, violence, and passion are all very deeply involved so not really a bedtime story for the children.  



Old Fashioned DVD, novelization, and devotional #OLDFASHIONEDMOVIE #FLYBY Review and Giveaway

Old Fashioned DVD


A romantic-drama, OLD FASHIONED centers on Clay Walsh, a former frat boy who gives up his reckless carousing and now runs an antique shop in a small Midwestern college town. There, he has become notorious for his lofty and outdated theories on love and romance as well as for his devout belief in God. When Amber Hewson, a free-spirited young woman with a restless soul, drifts into the area and rents the apartment above his shop, she finds herself surprisingly drawn to his strong faith and noble ideas, which are new and intriguing to her. And Clay, though he tries to fight and deny it, simply cannot resist being attracted to her spontaneous and passionate embrace of life. Ultimately, Clay must step out from behind his relational theories and Amber must overcome her own fears and deep wounds as the two of them, together, attempt the impossible: an "old-fashioned" and God-honoring courtship in contemporary America.

Cassandra's Review-   Do you not know what social media platforms such as Twitter are?  Would you like to learn more about what each different power they bring to an influencer?   You will not find ways to make your social media rocket off the charts or increase your numbers, but you will find out what the platforms are. The most influential ones that you should have at least one account on if you're going to be using the internet for business.  Do not let the title become the sole reason to pick up this book, because you will be very disappointed. 



Cold War III: How the U.S. Navy Can Defeat Putin and Halt Climate Change by W. Craig Reed Review



"W. Craig Reed's non-fiction book, Cold War III, exposes Vladimir Putin's frightening plan to dominate world resources, and why the U.S. Navy may be our only hope to stop him and mitigate climate change at the same time."
--MALCOLM BOYES

Human population is skyrocketing, natural resources are dwindling, Russian aggressions are escalating, and Arctic climate changes are forging a new Cold War battleground that's about to turn hot. These alarming world events have converged to create a "perfect storm" that's thrusting the world toward unprecedented economic chaos and global conflict. In Cold War III , W. Craig Reed exposes Russian President Vladimir Putin's plan to dominate world resources, especially in the Arctic, and why the invasion of Ukraine is only the beginning. Reed also reveals details about a scientific breakthrough by the U.S. Navy that could defeat Putin, create jobs, and mitigate climate change. But unless world leaders act now, Putin's plan could plunge the free world into a nightmare scenario of poverty, despair, and chaos not seen since the Great Depression. Reed's previous non-fiction book, Red November, exposed shocking details about a top secret U.S. Navy technology, deployed worldwide by Reed's father, that allowed President John F. Kennedy to avoid World War III and trump Soviet President Nikita Khrushchev during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Reed's frightening revelations in Cold War III remind us that the world's superpowers are still bitter enemies, and the third Cold War is heating up rapidly deep beneath the Arctic ice.

Reed also wrote the novel The Eagle and the Snake: A SEAL Team Six Interactive Thriller (Diversion Publishing, 2012). Reed is also the co-author of Tarzan, My Father with the late Johnny Weissmuller, Jr. (ECW Press, 2002). Reed served as a U.S. Navy diver, submarine weapons technician, and espionage photographer for special operations aboard nuclear fast-attack submarines. Reed earned commendations for completing secret missions during the Cold War, several in concert with Navy SEAL teams, and is the only author invited by the U.S. Navy to observe recent ICEX operations in the Arctic. Reed is an alumnus or member of numerous military, veteran, and technology associations that allows him to reach an audience of millions.

Cassandra's review-  Now this book is a real eye opener.  It is intense and would probably frighten little kids and most adults.  To be able to have this much information and be willing to share it on a book, is very brave.  While I personally did not feel like I needed to read it, and might have been better off not doing so. Only because of the now thoughts that are still swimming in my mind.  If you like conspiracy theories and hard facts, this is going to be a real page turner.   



The Price They Paid: Enduring Wounds Of Warby Michael Putzel Review


THE PRICE THEY PAID is the stunning and dramatic true story of a legendary helicopter commander in Vietnam and the flight crews that followed him into the most intensive helicopter warfare ever—and how that brutal experience has changed their lives in the forty years since the war ended. • Nine million Americans served in the military during the Vietnam era. • 2.6 million of them served in Vietnam • Fewer than a million of those saw combat. • In 2015, 58,300 names were listed on The Wall as killed or still missing. • More than 300,000 were wounded. Reliable statistics aren’t available to tell us how many died later due to exposure to Agent Orange, suicide, traumatic brain injury or other causes probably related but not directly traceable to their combat service. No one knows how many are scarred by PTSD or other mental illness. THE PRICE THEY PAID shares the true story of aviators in one helicopter unit and how their harrowing experiences forever changed their lives.

Loving on Purpose: Five ways to keep your love “on” and look more like Jesus Pastor Danny Silk

Loving on Purpose: Five ways to keep your love “on” and look more like Jesus
Pastor Danny Silk encourages others to build connections with communication, boundaries

Love. It is often seen as a feeling and not something we can control, but popular pastor and author Danny Silk says love is always a choice.

Silk, who serves on the senior leadership team at Bethel Church in Redding, Calif. and was the family pastor at Bethel Church for over 16 years, is on a mission to elevate the culture’s notion of love. He is the author of the Keep Your Love On: Connection Communication And Boundaries (Loving On Purpose, May 2013), which looks at a higher, Jesus-focused standard defined by mature love – love that stays “on” no matter what – and inspires tens of thousands of followers across social media daily. The book has been a smash success, generating more than 400 five-star reviews on Amazon and a huge audience, despite flying under the radar with top media outlets.

“Adults and children alike thrive in healthy relationships where it is safe to love and be loved, to know and be known,” he says. “Yet for many, relationships are anything but safe, loving or intimate.”

Silk says the reason for this is most people have never been trained to be powerful enough to keep their love on in the face of mistakes, pain and fear. He offers five ways to choose love in the midst of conflict:

1. Consider the other person’s love language. Gary Chapman wrote a book called The 5 Love Languages. Learn yours. Learn your loved ones. Is it touch? Acts of Service? Gifts? Quality time? Words of Affirmation? Knowing the answer to these questions helps build safe connections with others and allows relationships form an intimacy.

2. Become powerful. Powerful people don’t try to control others. They know how to control themselves. When we act in responsible, respectful ways, those who get close are ones who show respect, are responsible and love well.

3. Turn your love on. Commit to connect with others. Realize love is a choice. The choice to pursue connection brings us against the real conflict that lies at the core of every relationship. Align yourself with love and move forward from there.

4. Communicate. Have a goal of understanding, not agreement. Just talking isn’t communicating. People don’t always agree, but we can build connections if we communicate about feelings and needs.

5. Set limits. Don’t let other people roll over you. Learn that it’s appropriate to set limits, that it’s healthy to say “no.” No one wins if we don’t take care of ourselves first. This keeps us from being exploited, bitter and offended. Even Jesus set boundaries with his best friends.

Danny Silk serves on the Senior Leadership Team of both Bethel Church in Redding, CA and together with Sheri at Jesus Culture in Sacramento, CA. Together they founded Loving on Purpose a ministry to families and communities worldwide. Danny is an author of four books: Culture of Honor, Loving our Kids on Purpose, Powerful and Free and the top selling Keep Your Love On. Sheri travels as a powerful speaker and serves as the Director of events for Jesus Culture. Danny and Sheri married in 1984, and have three children and three grandchildren.www.lovingonpurpose.com.

Cassandra's Review- Love to me is so many things and can be expressed infinitely, not just a word.  The book in itself is geared to help and can provide knowledge that most people will deem useful.  This is a great read more for adults and then they can share it with their children as needed by appropriate age.  



ONE CREEPY STREET - THE SPIDER ON THE WEB By Lee Jordan Review


The Spider on the Web eimage.jpg

The internet is a terrifying place, with online predators, cyber bullies, and identity thieves lurking in every corner—and it’s laced with lots of young prey. When children use the web without supervision, they are exposed to a wide range of frightening situations.  Now, one father is on a mission to keep our kids safe by using a language they can understand—a cautionary short story with a rhythm and a purpose.

Lee Jordan’s new campaign is a fresh take on internet safety. In One Creepy Street: Spider on the Web, he dives into the dangers of online games, social networking, and other seemingly harmless communications. Readers are thrust into the tangled web of an online predator who prowls the internet, targeting children and using games to lure in his unsuspecting victims.

Spider on the Web is a whimsically illustrated story that not only appeals to children of all ages but also teaches valuable lessons such as:

The perils of social networking and communicating online with strangers.

Why sending pictures and other information over the internet is a recipe for disaster.

How children can use their parents as online mentors, asking questions if anything seems creepy or suspicious.

Cassandra's review- This is a book that I recommend to any age child and some adults.  The story is very short and has a cute monster theme.  The message is very real and to be able to create a story around this very serious awareness is just awesome.  The book opens a door for family discussions and would be great in schools as well.

Limm High Speed Jump Rope - Fully And Easily Adjustable

Get a LIMM HIGH SPEED JUMP ROPE!

What separates the Limm Jump Rope from the competition?

It's simple really. It starts with the precise ball bearing system that ensures that the rope will turn smoothly and precisely while you are jumping. When you're working out you need a quality rope that doesn’t tangle at every couple of jumps and with the Limm Jump Rope you won’t have this problem. Another exclusive feature is the removable plastic pieces at the top of the handles which allow you to adjust the length of the rope using nothing but your hands, simply and safely – unlike other jump ropes in the market. In addition, we have made comfortable foam handles to make sure you can skip for long periods of time. Finally, the total length of the rope is 9.8 ft, which was made longer to fit different heights.

Cassandra's review- Limm High Speed Jump Rope nice length and very easy to hold handles. The cord does not get all bunched up and makes speed jumping easier.

Cassandra's Review-  My older teens think this is so cool.  Basically its like a pocket knife effect. You unscrew the bolt and place in your keys, they do have to be a certain length and size though. For any key bigger then the product, you're given a key ring expander to attach to the end, and so it kind of becomes a more normal keyring, but less bulky. It will still weigh the same.

Excerpt Howard spoke up. “Ladies.” The three turned to face him. The woman in the center gave him an exasperated look. “Pardon me?” she asked. “Did you speak to us?” She looked him up and down. She gave a little click of her tongue and looked on unapprovingly. Howard was taken aback by her harsh tone. He struggled to get words out, “Yes. “He stammered, “I wanted to meet you.” he said slowly so he could be understood. He cursed his swollen tongue. The girl on the left giggled a little, the one in the middle gave her a rueful glance before looking back at Howard. She frowned. “Do you always speak like you have a mouth full of marbles? Are boots a foreign concept from where you’re from?” Howard started to turn red. He didn’t expect to be talked down to by this woman or any other. His anger started to rise. “I just wanted to meet you and get your name.” “A little forward aren’t you sir? I don’t think you gave me yours, for starters.” “My apologies ladies. I am Howard.” He said putting one hand to his breast. The girl on the left raised her eyebrows, waiting for more. “Just Howard? Are we to call you Mr. Howard?” she asked. He looked at the other girl. Are all girls of Salem so forked tongued, he thought, or just these? “Sorry, Howard Egan.” He again found his name difficult to pronounce correctly. “Nice to meet you, Mr. Egan” the girl on the right said. “I don’t know about that,” the black haired girl said. “Come, ladies.” The three turned to go. Howard took a step closer. “I didn’t get your names.” He didn’t want them to leave. They turned again. The girl in the middle tapped her toe lightly on the cobble stones. “No, and you didn’t earn the right.” She paused to look him over again. “Clean up. Stop fighting and some day you will get to. But not today.” She looked up at the wagon and saw the man sitting there. She nodded quickly to him and said, “Good day Mr. Chisholm. How is Mrs. Chisholm?” “Good day to you too. She is doing well. You will have to come by sometime for pie. She so does love your company.” Mr. Chisholm replied. “I just might do that.” She turned and looked at Howard. He felt he was being judged, like a pig at the fair. “Do you know this man?” she asked, “I do. I have agreed to take him on as an apprentice.” She inspected him one more time and looked back at Mr. Chisholm. “Well you must see something I don’t then.” “I suspect my wife will feel the same way.” “Good Day, Mr. Chisholm” She inclined her head. Her friends did the same. The curls framing the black haired girl’s face bounced as she nodded. “It was a pleasure seeing you. I will take you up on your wife’s pies.” They turned to leave, leaving Howard standing dumbstruck in the road. Mr. Chisholm looked down and saw Howard was still watching the women walk away. He laughed and called to Howard to climb back on. Once he was back on the wagon, Howard asked, “Who is that girl?” “I don’t know if it is my place to tell you. She made it pretty clear she didn’t want you to know her name. As well as I can remember, she has always been like that.” Mr. Chisholm replied.     Jeremy MaughanAuthor Jeremy Maughan Jeremy Maughan a seventh generation member of the LDS Church, was born February 1978 in Provo Utah. As a young man he had a passion for reading. One of his fondest memories is laying on the back on his parents boat reading for days at Lake Powell. He would spend days reading Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman, David Eddings,Terry Pratchett and many of great fantasy writers. He says that the only way he passed English in high school was because his teachers allowed him to turn in book reports as extra credit. After High School Jeremy attended Devry Institute of Technology and studied to become a programmer. After two semesters he dropped out, having already landed a great programming job. He didn't find the need to continue his education to get a job he already had. A few short months after dropping out of school he was convinced by a close friend, who was a recent convert to the LDS church, to serve a mission. In May of 1997 he was called to serve in the Oregon Portland mission. He reported to the MTC just 6 weeks after submitting his mission papers. There he gained a deep testimony of the gospel that has stayed with him throughout his life. Once he returned home from his mission his love of the North West pulled at him and he moved to Seattle to pursue his profession programming career. While attending institute his meet the love of his life and married her for time and all eternity in the Timpanogos Temple. In their 14 years of marriage they have had 5 children. Two boys and three girls. Jeremy’s writing career started with a simple 30 day challenge and the desire to fulfill a item on his bucket list. Wanting to do a challenge to write every day for 30 days he needed something to write about. After days of struggle he was studying the writings C.S. Lewis and was inspired by the story behind The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Jeremy decided to follow in Lewis’s footsteps and write about his own children. A story was hatched and he set out to write a novel for his kids and about his kids. He caught the writing bug and has written many stories for his family and friends. His most recent work, “ZIon’s Call” is a full length historical fiction novel based on one of his ancestors and his conversion to the gospel.
