Blessed Are the Misfits By Brant Hansen Review

34460639
Blessed Are the Misfits By Brant Hansen

Warning: If modern church culture makes perfect sense to you, and you always fit in seamlessly, don’t read this. As for the rest of us…

While American church culture (and American culture at large) seems largely designed for the extroverted, it’s estimated that half of the American population is introverted, and they’re often left wondering how, even if, they fit in the kingdom of God. As one of them, popular radio host Brant Hansen brings news. It’s wonderful, refreshing, and never-been-said-this-way-before good news.

In his unique style, Hansen looks to answer questions that millions of people carry with them each day:

If I don’t relate to God as emotionally as others do, is something wrong with me?
How does one approach God, and approach faith, when devoid of the “good feelings” that seem to drive so much of evangelical church culture?
How does God interact with those who seem spiritually numb?
Is the absence of faith-based emotion a sign of that God has moved on or was never there?
What if we aren’t good at talking to people about our faith, or good at talking to people at all?
What if I’m told I’m too analytical, that I “think too much”?
Where does a person who suffers from depression fit in the kingdom? Is depression a sure sign of a lack of faith?
This book is good news for people who are desperately looking for it. (And for their loved ones!)

It’s also for those who want to believe in Jesus, but inwardly fear that they don’t belong, worry that don’t have the requisite emotion-based relationship with God, and are starving for good news.

Blessed Are the Misfits is going to generate discussion, and lots of it. It’s simultaneously highly provocative and humbly personal. It’s also leavened with a distinct, dry, self-effacing humor that is a hallmark of Hansen’s on-air, writing, and public speaking style.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- The author shines a truth on a problem that most people actually have.  I felt that while some may not even see this as a real thing, the need to fit into God's way socially can burden people.  If you have a craving for faith based love and respecting your private ways this is going to be a great read.   You can a new outlook on something other people are also worried about while getting your mind out of your own box. 

100 Days to Brave By Annie F. Downs Review

100 Days to Brave
Devotions for Unlocking Your Most Courageous Self
By Annie F. Downs
34460460
You were always meant to be brave.

Whether you’re making a major decision, dealing with a difficult transition, or facing a fear, 100 Days to Brave will give you courage and confidence to move forward.

Annie F. Downs felt her challenges were too difficult, too scary, too much. Then she decided to stop allowing fear to hold her back. It wasn’t easy or simple. But it was good.

With honesty and relatable humor, this compilation of best-of writings and new pieces from Annie will help you embrace the path and the plan God has for you.

Dare to spend the next 100 days discovering that you are braver than you know and stronger than you thought possible. 

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- Heartfelt, truth that will win the reader over with kindness as well as positivity. No matter what life tosses at you this author helps to calm and heal while giving a gentle nod to get up and keep moving.   I would recommend this book to any age that would not only understand but gain from it. 

HydraLight Review

 Now, for the first time, there is a flashlight that runs on water.  There are no batteries, and no charging.  It simply runs on water.
Lantern
How does it work?  You just remove the revolutionary “hydra-Cell” fuel cell, and immerse it in water.  When water enters the fuel cell, it immediately begins to generate power.   Place the fuel cell back in the HydraLight, and you have a functional flashlight. But the HydraLight is more than just a flashlight.  By extending the barrel, it becomes a hands-free lantern that supplies light to the entire area.
 Hydralight Flashlight and Lantern
Key features of HydraLight are:

The HydraLight can be switched on and off like a regular flashlight, and can run up to 100 continuous hours on a single water charge.

With a rubberized armor coating, the HydraLight is rugged, durable, and made to last.  It can safely be used in even the worst weather conditions.

With a handheld light, you need one hand to hold the light…but with the HydraLight, you now have both hands-free!

It’s perfect for outdoor camping activities.  It can even hang inside your tent.  It’s perfect for your boat, or for anytime you need a hands-free light.

The HydraLight is the perfect long lasting light for emergencies of all kinds.

I received complimentary product

Cassandra's Review- With a brilliant light and super easy to use function this is a must have gift of the holiday.  I was so pleased and I think the kids will love it.

Trouble in Loveland by Jennifer Peel

What does dating the boss + meddling ex-wife + most adorable three-year-old ever equal? Trouble in Loveland.

At seventeen, Charlee Jensen packed her bags and left her beloved hometown of Loveland, swearing she would never have anything to do with the men that left her heartbroken: her father, the man that taught her heroes can fall; and Ryan Carter, her much older neighbor and teenage crush.

Now eight years later, Charlee has two degrees she never wanted and no job prospects, forcing her to swallow her pride and come home to work for her father’s accounting firm—the same firm where newly divorced Ryan Carter is now a partner.

But trouble starts to stir when Ryan realizes the girl next door is all grown up and completely smitten with his adorable three-year-old. Ryan finds it hard to resist his beautiful, yet annoyingly charming neighbor and coworker, but is torn between his feelings and trying to keep the peace with his ex-wife, the mother of his child. It’s a recipe for trouble. Will Charlee and Ryan find the formula for success?
