Going Down to the River By Doug Seegers with Steve Eubanks Review

Going Down to the River
A Homeless Musician, an Unforgettable Song, and the Miraculous Encounter that Changed a Life
By Doug Seegers with Steve Eubanks
The astonishing story of a singer-songwriter living on the streets of Nashville who met Jesus, got sober, and found international stardom at the age of 62.

Doug Seegers left New York for Nashville in search of every songwriter’s dream. When he didn’t find success, he fell into a state of loneliness that fed an addiction he had battled since adolescence. Soon, he was homeless, playing his guitar on the street with a cardboard sign asking for money. But then he cried out to God in repentance and need, and God graciously met him. Doug then found sobriety, regained some footing, and in a miraculous moment was discovered outside a food pantry by a Swedish musician and documentarian who put his story on the air in Stockholm. Within days of the documentary airing--even though he still walked to the public library every day and acquired most of his belongings from nearby Dumpsters--Doug had the number-one selling song in Sweden.

Going Down to the River is Doug’s inspirational story of faith, forgiveness, and the power of prayer and belief. It is also the never-give-up tale of a man who played music for 55 years without success only to become a chart-topping artist at the age of 62.

Cassandra's Review-   A book that gives hope through the shared story. It has a message that most people can really use and most readers will feel in their hearts.   I think any fans of the artist will enjoy getting an inside look at the moments shared and  learn a lot about the author.  A great book for older readers.

You begin a romantic relationship with so much hope and promise, thinking that this time is going to be different.

And for a while it is. You’re on top of the world.

But then things slowly start to devolve. At first it’s little annoyances, then you catch yourself getting in bad moods more often.

You start to fight, promises are broken and you begin to realize that you’re stuck in a never-ending cycle, wondering how things got so bad so fast.

Of course, this is just one possible scenario of countless types of relationship struggles.

If you’re in an unhappy romantic relationship, you are not alone.

Cassandra's Review- In my opinion if it is wrong you do not belong.  If you are in an abusive or unhealthy relationship that is not going to get better you need to walk away. Do not try to fix a broken situation that could wind up getting you killed.   You need to know first what kind of problem the relationship is in and if it is something that should be worked on, then maybe this book is for you.  An abuser will not change and so please know the distinction of the circumstances before trying to work on anything. 

All Styles DVD Feature

Struggling in his freshman year of college, Brandon tries to focus on his studies but keeps coming to the same conclusion: dance is his passion. His geeky roommate, Nate, proposes they start a dance crew, but their search for other freestyle dancers proves disastrous.

 So they expand their search, finding a breakdancer, a performance artist, a bhangra dancer, an animator, a ballerina, and a ballroom dancing mom willing to join the new crew. A national dance battle headlined by Brandon's previous crew, Levelz, provides the first opportunity for Brandon to prove to himself and his family that he and his crew have what it takes to make it as dancers. Can such a strange and disparate crew cut it in the highly competitive world of dance? Brandon is determined to find out!
