Books To Read:

5 RulesOne of the things I like best about the book, 5 Rules To Win Being You by Isha Cogborn is the fact that it isn’t just a “Quick Step” book. It challenges you to personally look at who you are- to recognize, acknowledge and celebrate your strengths, talents, abilities, passions- things that we often overlook or hide. It forces you to acknowledge your perception of yourself.

I tell people all the time, “You are NOT the father”… Oops, sorry. Where did that come from? 🙂  What I meant to say was “You are not the underdog but the champion- destined to contribute great things in the world. Act like it.” However, we often get struck… stuck by faulty thinking, bad breaks, excuses, trauma, fear…

This book helps you take a look at those things and move past them in order to walk in your umm… walk in your God given awesomeness and feel good about it! I was challenged- challenged to movement in areas where I allowed my own self to get stuck instead of walking like a champ. An inspiring book and she earned the right to write it.”

Everybody loves a good underdog story, except when you’re living it.”

Talk about an amazing book! From the first time I heard and met Hollywood Movie Executive DeVon Franklin, I knew that I could listen to this guy all day long.  His humble demeanor, humor and words of wisdom had people captivated and sitting on the edge of their seats!

Forget the fact that he has worked with some of the biggest names in Hollywood and on some of the biggest films on the silver screen.  It  was his transparency, his wisdom, his humbleness, his faith and his life that reflected his beliefs that gripped us-  that gripped me.

The book “Produced By Faith” is an amazing book that shows you how to fight for your dream and have a thriving career and life without compromising your faith!

DeVon presents your life (full of setbacks and victories) as a movie  that has a development stage and a production stage! The book defines and walks you through each part of each stage in such a way that excites you about living life. It is a book that every person needs to have in his library!  For me, this book was like a refreshing cold glass of water that hydrated certain areas in my life that had become dry and almost lifeless. It reminded me that God had all things in control and that I would make it through the struggles, rewrites, and other things that popped up- that I only needed to believe and work the plan. The development stage is necessary, especially if the main production of my life is going to be amazing and impactful (and it is)!

“Produced by Faith” is not only an exciting read but it is an excellent roadmap to living the life God designed for you.  In his own words, DeVon said, “To get to where you want to go, you first have to become the person God wants you to be.”

You can go to any bookstore or Devon’s webpage http://www.producedbyfaith.com/book.asp to pick up this book and learn more about him!  Trust me, you’ll read it more than once and you’ll want to get a copy for someone else! Let me know how you like it!

About the Book

“Christianity is a religion founded on the mystery of the cross of Christ.” –Leo the Great

At the center of Christianity sits the cross of Christ. From the beginning, Christ’s followers celebrated the cross as a symbol of their faith. It was honored in church worship, carved into rough tombstones, pressed onto loaves of bread and set out as a sign of sanctuary. The cross represented what Christians believed, who they hoped for and how they approached life.

In this thoughtful book Judith Couchman takes up forty images of the cross from early Christianity. As we discover the meaning and significance of each of these uses, we learn a little more about the early church. More than that, she helps us focus on the meaning of the cross and the Savior’s sacrifice.

Ideal for Lenten devotional reading, this book includes original illustrations of each cross image. The Mystery of the Cross will enrich your understanding of Christian tradition and draw you into Christ’s presence.

From the Publisher

Something comes alive inside of you when told “You are beautiful”. Perhaps it’s because as a woman, you can appreciate the fact that being recognized as beautiful is more than just an expression of your outward appearance. It’s more than being pretty, cute, or attractive. Beautiful implies something deeper, more complete or more whole. In that moment, you accept that there is no lack, nothing broken and nothing missing.
Beauty Come Forth will help you discover how to live beautifully, every day. You will explore your spiritual, physical, emotional, psychological, mental, and financial self and defy society’s message that says you are not enough. This book:
. Exposes the world’s twisted, vain, shallow interpretation of beauty
. Provides an accurate definition of beauty as God intended
. Directs you toward new insights into your own true beauty
. Supplies practical ideas on enhancing your physical beauty
. Walks you down the path to redefine your own beauty
. Proves that you are F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S.

Following the style of Cindy Trimm’s best-selling co-published books, this small book is based upon the biblical principle of beginning your day (not always a literal day) by following a prayer strategy for declaring the things that God has decreed are available to all believers.

It instructs the believer with kingdom principles that can be activated by decreeing with your tongue the power and authority of commandingGod to legislate, regulate, enforce, establish, institute, constitute, reign, rule, and dominate over the enemy. The reader will learn how to take command of the morning through spoken declarations that activate God’s power in his or her life.

If you want your life to change, it all starts with what you think and say. In her authoritative, declarative style, Cindy Trimm helps you achieve victory over your circumstances through spoken declarations that activate God’s power.

You will put meaning and purpose back into your life when you positively direct your thoughts, words, and actions toward the realization of our goals. Begin each day by commanding your morning. As you do, know that whatever begins with God and His principles has to end right.
