The Comic Book Story of Video Games

This book is exactly what it says a comic book.  It starts from the beginning of the video games and ends in the Minecraft 2014 era.  It is not an easy read as it will go from the past to the present and the illustrations are in clusters.  I was not as impressed with this read.  I was looking forward to reading the story of the video games, however, this book was not what I had expected and left me disappointed.   

If the title and description intrigues you, just know that you are getting a comic book and not a history book (text book) read.  I recommend this book to those that enjoy (and really enjoy) reading comic books and history that will go from past to present.  I didn't enjoy this read because it is not the style/type of format that I enjoy reading.

Life-Changing Miracles ~ James Stuart Bell

This book is filled with true stories of GOD's miracles and how HE has changed their lives.  Each chapter is a quick read 5-8 pages and tells of sadness, depression, laughter and much more.   These stories are of people who want to share and tell of how situations can all of a sudden change and leave you to look back and realize how GOD has stepped in and provided just what you needed at the right time.... it is always in HIS timing not ours.   These are stories that can be picked up and read at anytime.  You can read this book for a short time or from cover to cover, it is your choice.

I would recommend this book for any ages to read, they are great inspirational short stories.  This book would be a great gift book.  After reading a story it is uplifting and gives hope.  I really enjoy this book and like to leave it on the table ready for anyone to pick up at anytime.

Shine ~ Allison Allen

This is a the story of Allison Allen and how from her own life you can take the drama out of your spot light and shine it on GOD.  She tells us her experiences of how changing the way we think and her providing bible verses as back up can make a difference to have GOD shine the way HE should in our lives and those that we come in contact with.

I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to be able to experience GOD's joy and blessings by just changing the way we think in the most simple manners.  This is a very interesting read that will keep you reading each chapter.  This would be a great gift for a friend that has always felt uncomfortable to talk about their faith and GOD.  By reading the examples and ways Allison suggest will allow you to adjust your attitude to that of GOD's word.  I recommend this book for any age.

Same Kind of Different as Me ~ (movie version) Ron Hall & Denver Moore

EVERYONE MUST READ THIS BOOK!!! I would not have picked this up in a bookstore or library … such a lesson to me…. Do not judge a book by it’s cover.. READ THIS BOOK !!

A man named Denver (black slave and homeless man), Ron (a white rich business man) and his wife Deborah (a very persistent women being very obedient to GOD). The couple starts to volunteer at a homeless shelter and becomes friends with Denver. When Deborah is struck by an awful situation the true meaning of GOD’s love comes shining through. The story is told by Denver and Ron in their own views and how their friendship is the true work of GOD. Deborah is very demanding that they stay friends as it is GOD’s plan.

This is a true story and the most amazing story I have ever read. It has love, pain, obedience, comfort, strength and GOD all wrapped up in this book. I could not put this book down and read it in two nights even though I wish I had stayed up and read it all in one night. I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen. It makes me want to tell everyone about this story of friendship and how it just makes you feel good.

Becoming Resilient ~ Donna Gibbs

This book covers any type of suffering that you have in life.  Donna gives stories and examples from real people and how to deal with the suffering of grief, being stuck, sadness and life's everyday let downs.  Each chapter gives solutions and "so called homework" (questions) to do soul searching and work through the issues.

I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to have solutions to problems in a practical way and being able handle your feelings when you are grieving.  This is an easy read, each chapter is about a 5 minute read and the time for the questions depends on how much you want to put into it.  This is not a book that you can just pick up and read, if you want the most you will take your time reading this and think over what each chapter says for your life.  I loved the simplicity and truthfulness of this book, very helpful!

Descriptions and Prescriptions ~ Michael R. Emlet

This book is for the ministry and teachers, it is not a book that is easy reading.  It is very heavy reading and required lots of concentration.   If you are an educator then this is a great resource to learn how to teach and counsel regarding medications and illness.

I would not recommend this for those that were interested in just reading to understand the different types of illness and medications available.  This is a very advanced book and requires some heavy reading.  It is a small book, that can be easily carried around in your pocket to use as a handy guide when needed.
