I’m Possible By Jeremy Cowart Review

is I’m Possible: Jumping into Fear & Discovering a Life of Purpose40590432
Internationally known photographer and philanthropist Jeremy Cowart uses snapshots of his own story to inspire readers with the message that all things are possible when we actively engage our God-given purpose to change the world.

Recognized as “the most influential photographer on the Internet,” Jeremy Cowart is known as a photographer, hotelier, fundraiser, teacher, artist, world uniter, lover of life, and man of adventure. What fans don’t always know is that Jeremy started out as a failure.

Growing up, Jeremy’s life was defined by the words I can’t do it. Thankfully, Jeremy’s parents reprogrammed his mind with a single sentence: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. That simple truth propelled Jeremy to achieve greatness in many forms, including

running photo shoots with A-list clients, such as Sting, the Kardashians, President Obama, the Pope, and many more,

launching the Help-Portrait movement to invest dignity and value in people from underserved communities and who were victims of tragedy, and
launching the Purpose Hotel as a for-profit hotel chain designed to fuel the work of not-for-profit organizations.

I’m Possible is an extension of Jeremy’s belief that greatness must serve a greater purpose. It’s a book that will inspire readers with the message that all things are possible when we actively engage our God-given purpose to change the world.  Visit Jeremy's website: https://www.jeremycowart.com/

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  An influencer that opens his heart to art and shares a book that will inspire others.  When you have a gift but did not know it truly in your soul and when you are talented beyond years but can not express it enough.  By putting so much kindness into his work I think that Jeremy created so much more.  The book is going to be a great read for anyone that needs a positive jolt in life or a fresh start. 

The Shot Caller By Casey Diaz with Mike Yorkey Review

The Shot Caller
A Latino Gangbanger's Miraculous Escape from a Life of Violence to a New Life in Christ
By Casey Diaz with Mike Yorkey
41221423
The son of El Salvadorian immigrants, Casey Diaz was brought to Los Angeles at the age of two. An abusive, impoverished family life propelled Casey at only eleven years of age into the Rockwood Street Locos gang. Casey was willing to do anything to be number one, but years of chasing rival gang members led to a dramatic ambush and arrest by the LAPD.

At just sixteen, Casey was sentenced to more than twelve years in solitary confinement in California’s toughest prison as one of the state’s most violent offenders. He thought his life was over.

Yet, when a determined elderly woman paid Casey a visit, a whole new world of possibilities began to unfold. Casey scoffed as she quietly insisted God was going to use him. As the days in solitary wore on, Casey realized Someone else was calling the shots. What happened next can only be described as a miracle.

Perfect for:

People who believe they’re too far gone
Parents who want to keep their kids out of gangs – what are the warning signs
Social workers who interact with at-risk youth
Those looking for a gritty, informed perspective on LA street gangs and gang culture

A visceral insider’s look at the violent world of gangs and prison life, The Shot Caller is a remarkable demonstration of God’s reckless, unending grace and His desire to reach even the worst of sinners—no matter where they are.

Cassandra's Review- When you feel like you have no more options and you find God. It can be the best and most blessed time and it can save you from the darkest hours of life.  Most people hit complete rock bottom before getting into religion and some are born into it.   Following this telling and open story gives a new avenue for prisoners or people who are hurting a better option and bigger path. 


Feline Operation Barfitty Blues By Stacey J. Miller Review

Feline Operation Barfitty Blues: The College Emissions Scandal By Stacey J. MillerFeline Operation Barfitty Blues: The College Emissions Scandal by [Miller, Stacey]
Everyone's heard of the college admissions scandal by now. It's time to learn about the college emissions scandal. It also stinks.

Mama Mothball, the glamorous star of "Full Mouse," "Fuller Mouse," and some of the greatest Gnat Flix movies, has confessed to "The Morning Hairball" about the role she played in turning her privilege into an invitation for her precious little meat dumpling, Queen Bee Mothball, to stink up the lunchroom of the Mousers Institute of Technology.

And she wasn't alone. Simplicity Huffers was also in on the scheme. But why are all the richest and most famous felines of Cattywood complaining?

How did their diabolical scheme come to light? And how will it all end? Find out in this tell-all book. Felines are meowing about it!

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  A great book that jumps on the bandwagon of a really bad moment in time for a few celebrites.  Kind of like a rub in in your face from the author.  Some people will actually enjoy this more of a smear story and others are probably sick of the scandal by now.
