The Power Of A Half Hour by Tommy Barnett

Wonderful and bad things can happen in eighteen hundred seconds.

An intense thirty-minute conversation changed Carl's life.

As I read this, I thought about how many thirty-minute conversations I have had in my lifetime that have changed my life, whether for better or for worse. It's a lot!!!!!

Your time is invaluable, you will never get back lost time.

What can you do in thirty minutes?
Stop somebody from abusing a child.
Make an elderly person's day a little brighter by a visit.
Cheer someone up who's in the hospital.
Be sympathetic and understanding to someone who has a drug or alcohol problem.

After reading this book, I see how much can be accomplished in just thirty minutes.

You can change your life, bless others, spread the gospel, sharpen your gifts and abilities.

Why not change time from being your enemy to being your friend?

This book shows how to begin a new life. You'll see results in all areas of your life.

Through inspiring stories, thirty minute principles, and biblical insights.

This is a book that is really an inspiration.

I received this book from Blogging For Books for this review.

Life With A Capital L by Matt Heard

We all desire more than just daily routines,  we feel stuck and limited, existing instead of living.

An animal's life is of mere existence, eating, sleeping, finding shelter, seeking safety, having sex, producing offspring who will go through the same cycle. We are more than mere animals.

Relationships, work, hobbies, sports, addictions, eating, art, church, politics, volunteering, boyfriends, girlfriends, parenting, fame, religion, drinking, vacations, shopping, collecting, making money, spending money, giving money, success, social causes, selfish causes. Things for which we spend our time, money, and energy and which we hang our dreams and hopes.

Is this all to life? Is there nothing else?

Explore the ten experiences of life with a capital L:
Freedom, Heart, Beauty, Illumination, Story, Worship, Love, Time, Brokenness and Heaven.

Come on a journey of discovery.

Life With A Capital L is the Life you are longing for.

This was a very interesting book, you would enjoy it.

Churched by Matthew Paul Turner

This is a good book, its about a young boy's journey from a life as an ordinary kid to a young man who, amidst the chaotic mess of religion, falls in love with Jesus.

Going to church was not new for Matthew, his first visit to church was in his stroller next to his Mom and Dad's pew when he was eight weeks old.

Before switching churches, Matthew's parents were Methodists, after the move they were Baptists. This is his journey through the choatic mess of religion. By the time he was seven, the man whom God had chosen frightened him. Besides the Trinity, hellfire and brimstone were his favorite things.

The older he got, life was strange and fearful. When he didn't read his Bible or pray, he feared that God would punish him by crippling him or killing his mother. He would come home from school and call his mother at work when he hadn't read his Bible to make sure she was all right.

By the time he was in 10th grade, each week over eight hundred people came to his church. High attendance meant the community liked them, large numbers of souls being saved meant God liked them.

After college he bounced from church to church.

Did he find what he was seeking?

Churched is funny, moving and once you pick it up, you can't put it down.
