`Living With Confidence in a Chaotic World` Dr. David Jeremiah

Our world as we know it is soon fading away. Everywhere we turn we see chaos (hence the title). It's the worse it's ever been. Even worse than the Great Depression of the 1930's. So what is one suppose to do?
           I find it comforting that Dr. Jeremiah uses scripture all throughout this book. He also reminds us of the children's song `Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so`.
           Do we really believe Jesus loves us? Who/what are we putting our faith in? As for myself, am I calm or am I in turmoil. I am reminded that Jesus is the `only` way to heaven. He is the way, the truth and the life.
           I found this book to be challenging, in that it made me ask myself "How much, if any, faith do I have in Jesus? Am I able to rest calmly in Him? How am I responding? This book reminds me how much Jesus loves and cares for me. He knows my name and carries me through the worst of it all. I need not worry. There is no need to be afrai…

`Levi’s Will` by: W. Dale Cramer

I was so excited to be able to review `Levi’s Will`. It reminds me a lot of Beverly Lewis` series `Abram Daughters`. I was pleased to see Beverly Lewis had indeed endorsed this book.  The character, Will, is raised Old Order Amish. However, he runs away leaving familiar territory behind.
I must say I was surprised when he decided to join the Army. He actually liked being in the military. The Army was much like his Dad and the way Will was raised.
When he came home from the war he married a girl he had previously met, Helen. A few years into their marriage Will decides he really wants to go back home and see the Amish family he had left.
I leave you with this, Will and Helen went home to the Amish territory. To find out what happens next you’ll need to get the book. It will be well worth the read. I thoroughly enjoyed the book.

`The Noticer` by: Andy Andrews

I recently became a member for Thomas Nelson’s Book Review Blogger program. For my first book, out of a list of books, I chose `The Noticer` by Andy Andrews.  The story is written in first person, the narrator  “Andy” lives under a pier. He assumes no one knows that he sleeps under the pier all alone. He has a level of distrust in everyone and everything. Then a man named Jones (the Noticer) shows up and reminds him how safe he is. Jones tells him he needs a new perspective on things and to think, learn, pray, and plan. This encounter changed Andy’s life.
Jones is a very wise elderly man, who has a talent for noticing things others would just pass by. He encounters residents as they are privately facing some of life’s challenges. Jones is able to help them have a new perspective.
My first impression was it is an uninteresting book, as it did not `grab my attention`. However, as I kept reading I soon began to enjoy it.
The overall message is that we all need openness to change and percept…
