Shaken By Tim Tebow Review Enter to win a signed advance copy from .@TimTebow

Who are you when life is steady?
Who are you when storms come?

Most of us have been on the receiving end of rejection, a broken dream, or heartbreak. And while this is not an easy space to go through, when we are grounded in the truth, we can endure the tough times.

In this powerful book, Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow passionately shares glimpses of his journey staying grounded in the face of disappointment, criticism, and intense media scrutiny. Following an exceptional college football career with the Florida Gators and a promising playoff run with the Denver Broncos, Tebow was traded to the New York Jets. He was released after one season.

In Shaken, Tebow talks about what he’s learned along the way, building confidence in his identity in God, not the world. This moving book also features practical wisdom from Scripture and insights gained from others who have impacted Tebow in life-changing ways.

Though traveling hard roads is not easy, it’s always worth it!

Cassandra's Review-  Knowing your love of God and wanting to bless everyone with the inspiration and love felt is a great gift.   Now some people might not like God or be spiritual in this faith and that is fine because Tim is so uplifting that his positivity will shine through the pages of the book and into your spirit.

Now I do not personally know Tim and truly hope that what is in the book is real, honest and true because that would make his quest so much more powerful.  Sometimes I think it has to be hard to be in the spotlight every minute of the day, but by putting himself on the chopping block Tim has found a way with the help of God as he feels him to put forth a gracious and loving demeanor.    I would recommend this for the open hearted who have a love of God and Tim Tebow.

True Faith and Allegiance A Story of Service and Sacrifice in War and Peace By Alberto R. Gonzales Review


True Faith and Allegiance is the highly-anticipated personal history from Alberto R. Gonzales, former Attorney General of the United States and former Counsel to the President—the only lawyer and only Hispanic to hold both these positions—an ultimate insider in the most tumultuous events in recent history. Born to a poor but proud working-class family in Humble, Texas, Gonzales was raised along with his seven siblings in a modest 2-bedroom home.

His loving and devout parents taught him the conservative values of hard work and accountability that motivated Gonzales to the highest echelons of power.  He was a confidante to President George W. Bush during the crucible of the 9/11 attacks, and he played a vital role in the administration’s immediate response to protect America and the far-reaching steps to prevent further harm.

I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- The book is thick and filled with insight.  It took a long time to read through and at some points I felt a little sleepy, but altogether it is very informative and takes a real look at a time when not much is ever shared and combines the experiences of many through one man.  I would recommend highly to someone who has a craving for George W. Bush and how it all plays out.

A Love Made New Amish of Birch Creek Book #3 by Kathleen Fuller Review

Abigail Schrock knows God can make all things new, but does that include her broken heart?

It seems as if everyone is falling in love in Birch Creek, including Abigail Schrock. But when heartbreak descends on her already fragile world, she can’t help but feel that if she’d only been a little prettier, she could be on her way down the wedding aisle. To make matters worse, Abigail’s two sisters have found love, while all Abigail can seem to find is the chocolate she has stashed away in the pantry.

Asa Bontrager has never had trouble with the ladies in his Amish community—his good looks have always gotten him far. Which is why he’s baffled by the call he’s received from God to pursue Abigail, a woman who seems determined to turn him away.

Can Abigail find the peace and joy she so desperately desires? Will she allow herself to stop running and melt into the embrace of unforeseen comfort? If she does, she may just discover a love powerful enough to lift the heavy burden of grief weighing her down and restore her hope in a promising future.

Cassandra's Review-  As I unfortunately read the last book in the series first, I was a little disappointed because I wanted to get the full story and really delve into the author's work.  It was really good and had everything I like in a sweet romance brewing type of easy read.   I would recommend not reading book 3 first, but if you do rest assured it can be a standalone.  

Everything Is Possible by Jen Bricker Review

Born without Legs, She Inspires Others to Overcome

Jen Bricker was born without legs. Shocked and uncertain they could care for her, her biological parents gave her up for adoption. In her loving adoptive home, there was just one simple rule: "Never say 'can't.'" And pretty soon, there was nothing this small but mighty powerhouse set her sights on that she couldn't conquer: roller-skating, volleyball, power tumbling, and spinning from silk ribbons thirty feet in the air.

Everything Is Possible is her incredible story--a story of God working out his plan for her life from before day one. Readers follow Jen from the challenges of growing up different to holding captive audiences numbering in the tens of thousands. Everything Is Possible shows readers what they can accomplish when they remove the words coincidence and limitation from their vocabulary. Filled with heart and spirit, as well as Jen's wit, wisdom, and no-holds-barred honesty, this inspiring true story points the way to purpose and joy. Foreword by Nick Vujicic

Cassandra's Review-  The author has a strong connection with God and fills her book with this knowledge, so if you're for any reason off put by God or how faith comes into play when dealing with hard times, this might not be the read for you.  I feel like the author poured her soul into the pages of this book and left nothing un opened.

Choose and Choose Again By J. Kevin Butcher Review

In Choose and Choose Again, the reader will encounter story after story of different people, most of whom are from Hope Community Church of Detroit, where Pastor Butcher has been sharing the healing love of God for thirteen years. They represent men and women, African American, Caucasian, Latino, and Asian, urban and suburban, professional types and prostitutes, clergy and addicts, drunks and lawyers and convicts--wounded human beings who have found themselves empty, dying, and longing to be filled.

The stories are not only about their own healing and restoration but also about how the love of God heals. Butcher hopes that readers will find before them a path of healing that they feel compelled to embrace. He begins with his own story of emptiness and despair, and his journey to healing, but the ultimate power of his message is that this healing journey is for anyone who is willing to own his or her emptiness and hold one's heart out to God, who is desperately longing to love each person all the way home.

Cassandra's Review-  If you like books that have a wild blast of creative imagination and a story that will transform your reading space into a fantasy realm, this will be a huge hit.  Especially if you have children to read it outloud to.  If you are an adult who loves to read middle grade fantasy, and I am as well, this is going to be excellent!

Cassandra's Review- I unfortunately have a friend that does drink whiskey so with her help, I was able to test these  and so I am told the taste of the stones are not strong, but they can keep the taste after placing them in a cup of water and drinking the water, why I test this who knows however it is there.  They do make the drink cool but do not expect ice.  We did not put a bunch in one glass so maybe it would have cooled more?  I am told that the drink taste the same but not as warm.
