Blogging For Books Review: Enemies of the Heart

I liked this book a lot.  It is written in an easy to read conversational style.  I love the way the author explains biblical stories in an easy to understand way and I ecspecially love the real life examples of these stories and the lessons to be learned from them.

It is clear that the author is a gifted pastor with a knack for giving common sense advice about why we do the things we do. He explains where our feelings of guilt, anger, greed and jealousy come from and how to confront these feelings and gives sound advice on getting past them.

Another great thing about this book are the discussion questions for each chapter at the end of the book that you can work on with or without a group.

Blogging For Books Review: Where Will You Go From Here

I really liked this book by Valerie Burton who is a Certified Personal and Executive Coach.

When life takes an unexpected turn and knocks you off your course this book guides you to ask yourself the right questions and helps you to figure out what your next step should be. I like that she used her own personal experiences as well as those of others and takes you step by step through the initial shock to coming out on the other side stronger and better able to handle future unexpected setbacks

Using a unique combination of faith, common sense and psychology the author teaches what it means to be resilient in the face of adversity.

She takes you from assessing where you are, how you got there and how to begin the healing process. She calls this recovery "post-tramatic growth" and explains that all traumas, large and small, leave us changed. But by making wise decisions and looking for the lessons to be learned from this setback we CAN be strong, happy and confident no matter what life throws at us.
