Your Sacred Yes

Your Sacred Yes:  Trading Life-Draining Obligation
For Freedom, Passion, and Joy

Author:  Susie Larson
Publisher:  Bethany House Publishers
ISBN #:  0764213318
Pages:  224

Have you ever found yourself with too much on your plate?  Do you tend to say “yes” to any/every task presented to you?  If so, I think Susie Larson’s book can give you a new perspective on your yeses.

Susie Larson speaks about giving away our time.  Mrs. Larson writes with a profound gentleness that speaks to your heart.  She shares of her own personal knowledge in these areas as well.  She writes of the dangers of overextending ourselves and how to get ourselves free without guilt.  Mrs. Larson addresses so many topics such as peer pressure, and self-worth.  Susie Larson points out that God is invested in our lives and we should be attuned to God’s leading.  This truly made an impact on me because I have been guilty of being so busy and burnt-out that I have lost track of time, especially time spent with God.

I highly recommend this book to everyone who has gotten caught up in the busyness of life.  I believe this book will refresh your faith walk as it did mine.

Happy Reading!

Note:  I have received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.

Faith of Our Fathers DVD Review

Faith of Our Fathers DVD Review

FlyBy Promotions has given me the opportunity to review a movie this month.  The movie is called Faith of Our Fathers and is on DVD right now.

This movie is the story of two men, John Paul George and Wayne Adams.  The movie starts with John Paul George looking through his garage and finds a box of his father’s things from the Vietnam War.  Within this box is a letter that leads John Paul to embark on a journey to find out who his father was.  This journey leads him to Wayne Adams, whose father Eddie Adams served alongside John Paul’s father.  John Paul and Eddie set out to Washington, D.C. to see the names of their fathers on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall.  However, this trip to Washington, D.C. has more in store than the pair realizes. 

I truly enjoyed the message of this movie and would recommend it.  I found that the beginning of the movie is a bit rushed but the movie does reach a stride that truly engages you in the lives of these characters.  The message is a strong and poignant one.  This movie is good for the entire family.
