The Color of Heaven

Julianne MacLean

Price: 99 cents

I like novels about near-death experiences, and after death scenarios, but most novels are so disappointing, either lacking in credibility, or overly religious and dogmatic in nature, preaching punishment and fear. This story has depth, credibility and insight into the practicalities of forgiveness. I won’t talk about the story-line, because you just have to read this very well executed, lovely story. Actually, it is not overdone to say this story is rather brilliant. It works on you, even after you finished reading it, lingering in one’s conscious mind, working a miracle of forgiveness. Even if it is “just” a story, it is very powerful. The descriptions, the conversations evoke strong, deep emotions, which trigger inner reflection and in my case, healing from the past. I would have paid a lot more money to read this book. It is a unbelievable that this book is offered at such a low price. You can not go wrong, at all, to include this book in your Kindle Collection. I look forward to reading more from this author. I am hooked! Enjoy!

erntefreude

Nickels

Karen Baney

Price: 99 cents

There is a little bit of everything in this book, and it kept me interested from start to finish. The characters are well thought out, and I really enjoyed the interaction between them. I found myself laughing and crying and rooting for them at different points. I think we all have a best friend like the lady in this book, and if we don’t, we wish we did!
Most of all the struggles experienced by the main character was one that I think we all identify with on some level. Although we may not be in the type of industry she is, we’ve all had things hit us from left field in our jobs. We may not have dealt with the issues she had to deal with in relation to her *man*, but we’ve felt her pain on some level. We may not struggle with our faith in the same way, but we’ve all faced the loss of it at some point or other. This story makes you realize that others have the same problems and reminds us all that we are not alone.

Emily Knight

Niki Turner has finally arrived. Her career as a Software Engineer is soaring–she has just been offered the company’s most sought after account, Helitronics. Life would be perfect, if she could stop her roommate from playing matchmaker.

Then Kyle Jacobs mysteriously re-enters her life. As painful memories resurface, his presence turns her life upside down and threatens to waylay her career. She must find a way to work with him–after all, he’s the helicopter flight consultant for the new flight control system she’s coding.

Can she forget the past and see him as the new man he has become? Or will her resentment keep her from finding what she has always been searching for?

This contemporary Christian romance novel is an upbeat and compelling story set in the Phoenix Metro Area. Karen Baney shows a new side to her writing with great wit and banter between the main characters. Inspired by her love of romance and of computers, this story takes readers on a journey filled with laughter and tears.

From Tragedy To Triumph: The Father’s Story of the Loss of Three Children and the Faith to Overcome

Alex Davis

Price: 99 cents

Amazing story of a Fathers love for God! There is no other way to get through such heartache,but through our faith. This helps so many people .When we think we can’t go on we only need to ask God to Please help us. Alex went through more pain than most of us will ever experience in a life time. This is truly an inspiring book,thank you Alex for allowing us in. Thank you God for walking with Alex in the most tragic times in his life.

Doris S. Williams

This is the story of a father’s struggle to make sense of the untimely deaths of three of his children. The early chapters talk about the children and who they were. What follows is Alex’s explanation and teaching with how he was able to overcome being offended and angry and even bitter. After spending several months in prayer and intimate time with Father God, Alex gained a new perspective and a new way of life, a new purpose and a new vision.

The teaching in this book is profound, yet amazingly simple. Alex has found that God’s ways are usually very logical and very simple. We struggle with the simplicity of God’s word and are prone to trying to add to it and make it more complicated. In this book are teachings about being offended, praying in the Spirit, hearing the voice of the Lord, basking in His presence and understanding the word and the Holy Spirit. This book is life changing and grants the leader new insight into understanding God and His word.
Alex has seen a great response to the message of this book. The teachings were born in his prayer closet in the intimate presence of the Father. Many times, over and over, God told Alex that as a matter of survival, for him to make it through the trauma, he must stay in the presence of God; the sweet, intimate, loving and healing presence of the Father. It took several months, but slowly God’s healing salve began to heal up the wounds and eventually there was very little scarring. After all these months spent in prayer, God finally began the process of teaching. The heart was healing fine, the anger and bitterness were gone and Alex was open to let God speak to him and teach him the next chapter of his life.

This new chapter is exciting. Seeing lives changed and delivered from the pain and suffering of loss is exciting and humbling at the same time. One of the things that matters so much to the hurting is knowing that Alex actually knows how they feel and can minister to them from the other side of the fence and lead them from pain and suffering to healing and wholeness with a new perspective and a new life.

I’m sure you’re going to find this book to be very emotional, inspirational, spiritual and informational. Let the Father speak to you as you read this book. You may not be suffering from trauma, but the odds are that you will someday and in the meantime it can help you to understand what others are going through. Actually understanding the suffering of others elevates you to a position where you can minister to them with godly compassion. From tragedy to triumph is a proclamation of victory and overcoming, something we all need more of.

Make It Fast, Cook It Slow: The Big Book of Everyday Slow Cooking

Stephanie O’Dea

Price: $1.99

Stphanie O’Dea has taught me that my crockpot is not my mother’s crock-pot anymore. The crock-pot can be used used to make a traditional beef stew, yes, as described on page 211, but the crock-pot can also be used to make delicious soups, meats, side dishes, appetizers, dips, and desserts. The woman has a recipe for making banana bread in the crock-pot for goodness sake! All kinds of ideas are whirling around in my head. I can use the crockpot to prepare a new, sexy appetizer for the holidays, like the buffalo chicken dip described on page 25, instead of the same old stuff. I can use the crockpot to impress my friends with the delicious and fragrant chai tea latte like the one described on page 8 at the next Bunco meeting. I can also use the crockpot to help my children create caramel apples and look like the coolest mom ever! The sky is the limit with this book. It even has a recipe for recycling old candles to make new ones. Yes, I said candles, in the crock-pot!

Breakfast Risotto
Vietnamese Roast Chicken
Tomatoes and Goat Cheese with Balsamic Cranberry Syrup
Falafel
Philly Cheesesteaks

–and much more. Make It Fast, Cook It Slow is the perfect cookbook for easy, quick prep, inexpensive ingredients, and meals that taste like you spent hours at the stove.
