Live Simple: 31 Tips To Declutter, Simplify, And Organize Your Life

Nate McHenry

Price: FREE

I can’t say enough good about this book! It is as if the author walked through my house (the Trust Walk?) and commented on each room and each aspect of my material world that needed simplification. I appreciated the encouraging words along with the very practical ways of making changes.
While I truly loved every “step”, I especially appreciated the new step (for me) of creating a Return Cart. It makes so much sense and can be placed away from the kitchen table so that, instead of shuffling things around to be able to sit down to dinner, I can keep my eating area sanctimonious and also have an easy way to deal with the many projects started every day.

On the Side: Low-Calorie Side Dish and Salad Recipes (a Scrumptious Low-Calorie Recipes Cookbook)

Joan Holcomb

Price: FREE

After reading another cookbook by this author, I decided to check out her other titles. This one is equally as good. I’m always on the lookout for good low calorie recipes and these look great and tasty. It’s great to find some of my favorites (potato salad!) without all of the calories and fat.

Kaye T

I love salads, and side dishes. The difficulty I had when losing weight, however, was to find a salad dressing, or a salad or side dish, which was tasty but not loaded with calories. These dressings, saucers, side dishes, and salads are all under 250 calories per serving.

All recipes include calories, fat, fiber, carbs, and protein content per serving.

Important note: this is not a cookbook with zero calorie (or near-zero calorie) recipes. The very nature of these dishes and their ingredients mean that the calorie count will never be zero, or even close to it. Those looking for minimal calorie main dishes are advised to seek commercial preparations specifically made for very low calorie diets.

Also, these recipes are not necessarily low-carb. With healthy ingredients such as fruits and vegetables, they often include GOOD carbs.

Miracles And Grace In An Unlikely Place

Charisse Tyson

Price: FREE

Having lived in Hollister all my life, this book brought back so many memories and showed the honest journey of a woman who traveled a hard road and persevered. While reading, it, I felt the author was sitting over a cup of coffee telling me the story. Honest and hard hitting about life in a small town. I really enjoyed this book.


When Charisse Tyson bought Johnny’s Bar & Grill in Hollister California in 1995 she had no idea it was the bar that inspired the 1953 movie the Wild One with Marlon Brando. She did however know that her husband, Tommy, was an alcoholic. Hardships and heartaches were inevitable. Take a journey with a co-dependent control freak and her alcoholic husband to the Birth Place of the American Biker as they find their way back to God and to each other.

How to Memorize Bible Verses: The Fast and Easy Way to Memorizing Scripture

Dean Roller

Price: 99 cents

The first time I saw someone speed memorize a deck of cards I was intrigued and impressed. The Guinness Book world record holder I saw on television explained that he used images to memorize pairs of cards which allowed him to use his imagery to recall all 52 cards in any order that was presented to him. Now that same process for creating long-term memory patterns is available for applying it to the one book that we should all memorize, the Bible.
The first book of Psalms describes a blessed man and stresses in verse 2 (Psalm 1:2) “But his delight is in the law of The Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.”
This book is well written and goes into intricate detail on how to use different techniques to create the necessary imagery and stories to imprint scripture into our long-term memory. The author builds from one technique to another as if carefully crafting a plan to help us condition our mind to memorize scripture. He doesn’t just use imagery, but shows us how to take keywords from scripture and combine that with the scripture reference to create a story that we can easily recall.
I would have liked to see pictures in the book. The pictures could have brought his words to life. a few pictures would have bumped up this book to five stars for me.
In conclusion, if you want to get the Word of God deep into your soul and use it as the sword it was intended for, then you need to get this book and learn how to memorize scripture and do it fast. This book is well worth the purchase price.

Affirming the Apostles’ Creed

J.I. Packer

Price: $2.99

I read this book to my wife almost every morning before she went to work. We really liked it. J.I Packer walks us through the Apostles’ Creed phrase by phrase. He says that the Creed was originally written in Latin, and that “I believe in God the Father” translate a phrase that literally means “I am believing INTO God.” It conveys the idea of total dependence.
In the chapter about the only begotten Son, Packer says that the phrase literally means “one of a kind Son.” The expression “He descended into hell” means that Christ went down into the netherworld after He died on the cross and proclaimed victory over the powers of darkness to the disobedient angels in prison – see 1 Peter 3:19-22.
Believing in the Holy Spirit means trusting in Him as our advocate, counselor, guide, and helper. and as the One who highlights and glorifies Jesus.
The communion of saints refers to the fellowship we can have with believers in this life and in the common bond we have with the saints of all times.
This is a great little book! The sentences are little long and cumbersome at times. Perhaps a good editor could have tightened up the screws. But this is a minor thing because we really enjoyed this book.

Dr. Marc Axelrod

The Apostles’ Creed is the oldest, most beautiful succinct summary of Christian beliefs. Though often recited in unison during worship services, the creed begins with the phrase “I believe,” making it a deeply personal profession of faith. But when was the last time you examined it closely?

In Affirming the Apostles’ Creed, an excerpt from Growing in Christ, noted Bible scholar and author J. I. Packer explains the meaning and implications of each phrase of this great creed. Each concise chapter serves as an invitation to dive further into the creed—and as a result, into the essentials of the Christian faith—by concluding with discussion questions and Bible passages for further study.

Timothy Keller

Price: $1.99

Renowned pastor and New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller explores the nature of evil in the world with The Great Enemy, the sixth entry in his Encounters with Jesus series.

The baptism of Jesus and his temptation in the desert are two well-known experiences of Christ, yet it is often forgotten that they go together. In The Great Enemy, Timothy Keller, pastor of New York’s Redeemer Presbyterian Church and New York Times bestselling author of The Reason for God, explores the contrast between Jesus’ encounters with God and Satan. He explains why evil is deeper, more nuanced, and more complex than we think and how we can confront and weaken its destructive force in our lives.

Signature in the Cell

Stephen C. Meyer

Price: $2.99

I would to thank Mr. Meyer for the elevated tone and substance of his latest work, this book contains no vitriol, condescendence, arrogance or anything remotely unpleasant. It does contain well reasoned arguments for his points of view with extensive documentation in the notes and Bibliography. Meyer has taken no cheap shots at the scientists who do not happen to share his point of view, this in marked contrast to the screeds presented to the public as legitimate scientific discussion by the evolutionists. While I at times enjoy returning the fire of evolutionary zealots with a nuclear weapon, Meyer has chosen his words with the upmost care and demonstrated a particular graciousness to those who will not and perhaps cannot reciprocate this courtesy, this in my mind demonstrates the confidence and pure scientific ability bought to this study. I give the highest endorsement possible to the purchase of this worthy publication.

Mark (Greek for Hammer)

“Signature in the Cell is a defining work in the discussion of life’s origins and the question of whether life is a product of unthinking matter or of an intelligent mind. For those who disagree with ID, the powerful case Meyer presents cannot be ignored in any honest debate. For those who may be sympathetic to ID, on the fence, or merely curious, this book is an engaging, eye-opening, and often eye-popping read” — American Spectator

Named one of the top books of 2009 by the Times Literary Supplement (London), this controversial and compelling book from Dr. Stephen C. Meyer presents a convincing new case for intelligent design (ID), based on revolutionary discoveries in science and DNA. Along the way, Meyer argues that Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution as expounded in The Origin of Species did not, in fact, refute ID. If you enjoyed Francis Collins’s The Language of God, you’ll find much to ponder—about evolution, DNA, and intelligent design—in Signature in the Cell.
