Some good reading for this Fall!

by | Oct 31, 2011

I have read a few books lately that I just really want to share with you!  I love to read and my goal is to read even more than I have been this Fall so if you read something that you love please let me know what it is so we can all read it!  🙂

If you want to change your life then you need to change the way you think:


Joyce Meyer has a knack for coining phrases-her fans call them Joyceisms-and one of her best loved is “Where the mind goes, the man follows.” This was the basis for Battlefield of the Mind, and in her latest book, Meyer provides “power thoughts,” bringing the reader to a new level of ability to use the mind as a tool to achievement.In POWER…more


Now, this next book I have to admit I was very skeptical about when Bill brought it home for me, in fact I wasn’t even going to read it but once I did I was truly amazed:

A young boy emerges from life-saving surgery with remarkable stories of his visit to heaven.

Heaven Is for Real is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn’t know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear.

Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how “reaaally big” God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit “shoots down power” from heaven to help us.

Told by the father, but often in Colton’s own words, the disarmingly simple message is heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and be ready, there is a coming last battle.  You can buy it almost anywhere including

Now, with it being Halloween today I cannot help but encourage you to also pick up Bill’s book so the power of God can a focus today when everything else seems to be on the dark side:

…. radio announcer Bill Scott answered the blinking request line.  A weak, timid, and very scared young girl began desperately pleading for help.  She said she was being held prisoner in a witch’s coven.  As she spoke, a voice that was clearly not human exploded from her lips.  Bill’s life would be changed forever.

With little practical knowledge of demon possession and no experience in exorcism, Bill and his wife invited the tormented woman to live with them,  naively believing that they could help here.  The Day SAtan Called is Bill Scott’s riveting account of the next eighteen excruciating months in his life.

He lived in constant fear.  Human and inhuman voices punctuated the night.  Noises. Threats. Cursing. Blasphemies. Objects falling and moving.  Doors opening and closing.  Strange visitors and callers.  Yet, he seized the opportunity to try helping the woman find deliverance.

This story of demon possession is unlike any other account you may have read about or seen in movies.  The hellish manifestations of malevolent spirits are chillingly familiar, but the author’s experience is  bizarrely unconventional.  The Day Satan Called is a frightening reminder of why so many sober minded people believe that evil and it’s dark kingdom of demons thrives in this earthly domain, discussed and cunning but here nonetheless.

Ok, so now you know why Bill laughed at me when I said I was skeptical about “Heaven is For Real”!

I will be posting some great recipes this week as well!  Great to be back online!

God Bless,
