Driver Confessional ~ David L. Winters

Antonio is a Buber driver for Washington DC to support his family and put him through law school.  One evening he picks up a lady to go to a Senate meeting she is very nervous about.  She leaves her brief case in his car and Antonio needs to find her the next day to give it back.... this is where the adventure begins.  If you like a read that will keep you moving through the story then this is the book for you.

I would recommend this book for those that like a little bit of suspense, drama, faith, mystery and lots of characters, then get this book.  It is one of those that will keep you turning the pages.  This is book #1 of the Driver Series and I can't wait for book #2 to come......

The Gatekeepers ~ Chris Whipple

Chris does a good job of telling the stories of the White House Chief of Staff.  He covers many presidents and gives a lot of history.  His stories tell of the responsibility for COS on the job side and personal side.  He doesn't hold back on the details, he has a lot of material in this book.

I would recommend this to anyone that like politics, history, and or a little bit of personal stories in the lives of who runs the country.  It is a lot of information in one book and you may want to take your time reading to take it all in.

This Life I Live ~ Rory Feek

This is the true story of Rory, Joey, his wife and Indiana,their 2 yr old daughter.  Many know Rory and Joey from being country singers.  But in this book you get to know Rory, the person, loving husband, loving father and Christian man.  Rory doesn't hold back, he tells of everything and how GOD has provided, taken away and showed that it is all about GOD's plan in life, not our plan.  This is a book that if you start reading you will not want to stop until the end.  It will touch your heart, make you cry and make you laugh. 

I would recommend this to anyone of any age. It is a wonderful book, if you are a fan and have been following the story, read this book!!  If you are not familiar with this story, after this book you will be reaching out Rory's blogs to keep getting inspiration from him.  Rory does a great job of being real and brining you into his world.  BUY THIS BOOK!!!

Sacred Privilege ~ Kay Warren

Kay is the co-founder of Saddleback Church, a pastor's wife and very passionate at sharing for GOD's Ministry.  She opens her heart and shares about everything in today's world as being a pastor's wife.  Kay writes as she is talking to her best friend.  This book is written for pastor's wives, however, anyone can enjoy it.  I am not a pastor's wife and I enjoyed this from cover to cover and couldn't put it down.  Kay shows us that pastor's wives go through the same sadness, heartbreak, depression, cancer, marital problems as anyone else does.  Her story shows us that pastors wives are just like anyone else and deal with everyday problems.  God doesn't give them any special privileges.  HE treats us all the same.

I would recommend reading this book to anyone, it is a great book that is down to earth and has some really great examples of GOD's work. Kay really tells her story and doesn't hold anything back.  Great read that I would read over and over again!!

Under a desert sky ~Lynne Hartke

Lynne tells her story of not just her going through breast cancer, but her parents also. She doesn't hold back by letting us know her journey from the pain, the laughter, the sharing and now how she supports others on their journey.  What a great read from the beginning to the end.  This book is all about faith and how you use it in your daily life.

I would recommend this book for everyone to read, it is a very inspirational and emotional book that gives hope that whatever you are going through you will get through it with your faith.  I like how the back of the book has a section with questions for reflections and a section of bible verses that are in categories for just what you need. This would be the perfect gift for anyone touched by cancer.

Getting Jesus Wrong ~ Matt Johnson

Matt tells the story of how his life was and is in a church setting.  I didn't really get this book, it was a book that I had a hard time to get through.  I would make myself read this book, but couldn't get into it.  The curse words are not part of my reading style and that was part of my not being able to get into this book.  The writing style was depressing to me and overall, I feel I can't give this a full review because I really didn't connect and read this book from cover to cover.

I can not recommend this to anyone as I didn't get completely through the book and of the language used.  I wish it had been mentioned that it did have this type of language in a Christian book.  This may be ok by others, which is their choice, but I choose not to read books that include this, I think you can get your point across with using other words.

And Still She Laughs ~ Kate Merrick

This is a very inspirational book of one women that lost her young child to cancer and kept going.  Kate tells us of her own heartbreak, tears and laughter of how to get through it all in GOD's way.  She will give us her story and then give a story of a women in the bible that had to deal with experiences also.  

I would recommend this read to anyone that wants a great story of how laughter is the best medicine for anything in life.  This is a very inspirational, encouraging and teaches the word of GOD. Loved this book and it would make a great gift for anyone.  **Remember Mother's Day is coming up**
