Charles R. Swindoll in his new book, “Embraced By The Spirit book coverEmbraced By The Spirit” published by Worthy Publishing gives us The Untold Blessings of Intimacy with God.

From the back cover:  Has it been a while since your heart was stirred?

Charles Swindoll has been there too–weary of a sterile, predictable faith; running on empty, yet knowing in his heart that there has to be so much more.  In Embraced By The Spirit, he welcomes you as a fellow pilgrim to a deeper, more intimate walk with God through a greater understanding of the power of The Holy Spirit.

Approach the throne of grace alongside beloved pastor Charles Swindoll as he guides you through the prayers of your heart.  In Hear Me When I Call you will find effective prayers on the themes of your life.

Hear Me When I Call helps put into words what your heart and soul are trying to express as you draw closer to the One who always bears you.

We read in The Gospels that the Disciples went everywhere with Jesus, living together as a nomadic small family.  When Jesus knew He was going to die He told them He was leaving but not comfortless as He was going to send The Spirit.  They would have the exact same relationship with The Spirit that they had with Him.  What the Disciples had we can have today, a relationship with The Holy Spirit.  Pastor Swindoll begins the book by explaining who The Holy Spirit is and then launches into the ways we can have and improve our relationship with Him.  If you are feeling hesitant about your relationship with The Holy Spirit and how you can grow with Him then this is the book for you.  “Embraced By The Spirit” is a great gift to give to friends and family as well.

Perry Stone in his new book, “Judas Goat book coverThe Judas Goat” published by Charisma House helps us How to Deal With False Friendships, Betrayals, and the Temptation Not to Forgive.

From the back cover:  When people you trust betray you

Betrayal by enemies is expected, but when it comes from family and friends, it can be devastating. Perry Stone uses the intriguing example of a Judas goat to show you how to deal with the betrayal in a biblical way and find the strength to forgive.

A Judas goat is an actual goat that is raised with the sheep in the field; eating with them, sleeping with them, and generally gaining their trust. When the time comes to lead the sheep into the slaughterhouse, the sheep will follow the Judas goat into specially marked pens, the back of trucks, and in some instances into the slaughterhouse itself. The Judas Goat makes a strong correlation between this goat and the people in your lives who are operating with ulterior motives, helping you understand:

·          The betraying strategy of potential Judas goats in your life
·          The three levels of relationships and whom you should let into your inner circle of trust
·          How to address false rumors and lies from those close to you
·          The critical danger of unforgiveness, and more!

To have someone betray you is one of the most hurtful acts that can happen to you.  Someone you trusted, someone you thought was your friend suddenly, without warning, turned on you and their act leaves you open and exposed.  At some point, to some degree, it is probably going to happen to everyone.  King David said it happened to him by someone who ate at his table, meaning one of his best friends.  It happened to Jesus in both Judas and with Peter.  Perry Stone has given us a way to heal if betrayal has already happened to us and a way to deal with it if it has not happened yet.  I believe that this book should be read slowly and carefully and then put on a shelf where it can be referred to easily if need be.  It is also a great gift for friends and family so that they, too, can heal and be prepared for any betrayal that may happen to them.

Rob Elliott in his new book, “Big Book of Laugh-Out-Loud Jokes book coverThe Big Book of Laugh-Out-Loud Jokes for Kids” published by Revell gives us reasons to laugh out loud!

From the Back Cover:  The gut-bustingest, knee-slappingest, guffaw-inducingest collection of clean jokes you can find!

All kids like to laugh, and The Big Book of Laugh-Out-Loud Jokes for Kids delivers! Combining his three bestselling joke books for kids, Rob Elliott will have you doubled over for days. You’ll get jokes like

Q: Why did the invisible man turn down a job offer?
A: He just couldn’t see himself doing it.

Q: What do you get if you mix a rabbit and a snake?
A: A jump rope.

Knock knock.
Who’s there?
Cook.
Cook who?
Are you as crazy as you sound?

Great on car rides, at the dinner table, on the playground, and anywhere in between, this collection of wholesome hilarity will make you and those around you smile from ear to ear.

We don’t laugh enough.  Look at some of the pictures that are being posted on the social websites and you’ll see that people aren’t even smiling for the camera anymore. Rob Elliott saw the problem and figured out a way to fix it with his new book.  Yes, the jokes are supposed to be for kids and they are.  However that doesn’t mean that adults will not enjoy them also.  After all being an adult only means that you are a taller kid.  I think these jokes are priceless and if you don’t laugh through the book you need to check your pulse.  Part One is Q&A Jokes, Part Two is Q&A Jokes using animals and Part Three is Knock Knock jokes.  This book is great fun that the whole family will enjoy.  It is also a great gift for friends and family so that they can laugh.
