Book Review: Two Old Ladies Smiling: A Journey to My Place of Blessing by Michael Cook ISBN: 978-1-5127-9855-5


Watch on YouTube

I don’t know that I have ever read a hug before.  I can’t say that after reading Two Old Ladies Smiling: A Journey to My Place of Blessing by Michael Cook.

By now I think we have read and reviewed just about every kind of book about just about any subject that can be considered to be Christian-friendly. This was a very different kind of book.  How exactly can one categorize a book like this that has a lot of good stuff in it?

This book is the happy, sad, bitter-sweet book about Mike Cook and his family and the story about how he and his wife started and continue to run Allow the Children ministries.

It is more than just that, though.  It is the story about the absolute love he was given from two very special ladies in his life, who showed absolute love to him and to his entire family.

Two Old Ladies Smiling is a story about God’s miracles and how Mike learned to trust in Heavenly Father.  He did not say it in these exact words, but it seems that God was trying to teach him to “Leap and the net will appear”.

If you are a Christian, you have to read this book.  It is an amazing story of an amazing testimony written from the heart.

Two Old Ladies Smiling is the kind of book you will want to share with your friends and loved ones.

Book Review: The Mental Toughness Advantage: A 5-Step Program to Boost Your Resilience and Reach Your Goals by Douglas Comstock ISBN: 978-1-64152-053-9

 

Watch on YouTube

If you are up against the wall, you can respond many different ways.  Psychologists label some of these ways as Fight, Flight, or Freeze. Some of us would add the word Freak, as well.

Marines are taught that the three ways they can respond to a crisis are to improvise, adapt, and overcome.  Failure is not an option.

The book The Mental Toughness Advantage: A 5-Step Program to Boost Your Resilience and Reach Your Goals by Douglas Comstock seeks to help readers improvise, adapt, and overcome by teaching them some coping skills.

This short book(91 pages) is very hard on the eyes.  The page numbers are light orange. The sidebars and box quotes are all white text on an orange background which makes them nearly impossible to read for older eyes.

If your resilience could use a little boost, or your mental toughness needs a tune-up, The Mental Toughness Advantage may just be what you need.

Book Review: My Father’s Gift: How One Man’s Purpose Became a Journey of Hope and Healing by Sixtus Z Atabong ISBN: 978-1-63393-675-1



Watch on YouTube

Go to the restroom, grab your favorite beverage, turn off the cell phone, and buckle your seatbelt. You are about to embark on an emotional journey that you just can’t stop.

My Father’s Gift: How One Man’s Purpose Became a Journey of Hope and Healing by Sixtus Z Atabong will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions.

You will want to stock up on tissues before you start.  You will also want to keep an extra copy, or ten, of this book on hand.  That way when people ask you why you are crying, or smiling, or laughing, or irritated, or whatever emotion you are displaying, you can hand them a copy of this book so they can see for themselves.

We read over 200 books a year here at McClendon Villa.  That being said, you must know it takes a lot to make it onto our very short list of outstanding books.  Last year only five made it. This year so far, only My Father’s Gift has made it onto that short list.

Atabong tells us the story of his father’s life along with how he and his father interacted with one another.  I have never met Atabong’s father, but I would have to believe that he is very proud of all that his son has accomplished.

It is very hard to believe that this author started this book shortly after declaring that he didn’t write.  He has done an outstanding job with this book and has told his story and that of his father very well.

My Father’s Gift will tell you a story that will touch your heart like few books ever do.  I am glad we share the same adopted home state. We didn’t have to travel as far as the author did to get to Texas, but we both got here as fast as we could. He got here first.

Book Review: Keto in 30 Minutes: 100 No-Stress Ketogenic Diet Recipes to Keep You on Track by Jen Fisch ISBN: 978-1-64152-462-9

Watch on YouTube

Let’s face it, there is no one, perfect diet.  We hear so much about keto diets now but, what is a keto diet and how will it help? Keto in 30 Minutes: 100 No-Stress Ketogenic Diet Recipes to Keep You on Track by Jen Fisch will answer many of your questions.

This book takes the time to explain what a keto diet is and what it isn’t.  Did you know that certain vegetarian dishes can be a part of a keto diet?

Evidently, the keto diet was intended to help with epilepsy.  It has also been used to help with Parkinson’s Disease. The thing is, you should never start a diet of any type without discussing it with your doctor, nutritionist and/or other medical professional.

This book answers the question, “How do I know I am in keto?”  

You will learn about the proper kitchen tools to make following a keto diet easier and about exercise, as well.

This is probably something a diabetic wants to shy away from but, for many others, the keto diet may just be what you are looking for.  

Keto in 30 Minutes delivers just what it promises. That is keto meals that are quick and easy to prepare without a lot of fuss and muss.

Book Review: Together With Christ: A Dating Couples Devotional: 52 Devotions and Bible Studies to Nurture Your Relationship by Chelsea Damon ISBN: 978-1-64152-253-3


Watch on YouTube

Christians are instructed in the Bible not to be unequally yoked. In the Old Testament, the Israelites are instructed not to marry people from the occupied lands. The reason for this is that we are often enticed to follow the gods of the other people.

In today’s modern world, this translates into Christians not being in a relationship with non-Christians for the same reason.  After a while, we tend to gravitate towards the non-Christian lifestyle of the other.

This is where Together With Christ: A Dating Couples Devotional: 52 Devotions and Bible Studies to Nurture Your Relationship by Chelsea Damon can help dating couples.  It can even help newlyweds and not-so-newlyweds, as well.

This book presents 52 weekly devotions designed for couples to read and discuss together.  The subjects covered are very important to couples who are striving to have a Christian relationship and a successful marriage.

If a couple will sit down together and truly discuss each weekly devotion, they stand a much better chance at a successful marriage than they would if they did not.

Together With Christ also makes a great text for a small group Bible study.  Your church should strongly consider this.

If your families are from different Christian denominations, it would be well to sit down with both sides of the new family separately, and maybe even together, to work through this book.

Remember, one must put God in charge of your married life.  Therefore, if marriage is a good thing right now, it will be a good thing a year from now.  Don’t rush it; grow together and give your marriage the best chance at success that you can. Together With Christ will help you to do that

Book Review: Chess for Beginners: Know the Rules, Choose Your Strategy, and Start Winning by Yelizaveta Orlova ISBN: 978-1-64152-257-1


Watch on YouTube

 

When I was in the tenth grade, everyone was learning how to play chess.  I did not want to be left out, so I taught myself using the World Book Encyclopedia.  It gave me the basics, but it did not teach me any strategy.

 

Once you buy Chess for Beginners: Know the Rules, Choose Your Strategy, and Start Winning by Yelizaveta Orlova, you will not only know the basics, but you will learn some basic strategies for winning at chess.

 

There are a few problems with this book.  The first problem is that the chess quotes included in the book are written in a light red which does not stand out very well from the background.

 

There appears to be a mistake in placing a heading on page 67. To me it appears that the bold words that say Diagram 6.13 should actually appear just over the heading Why Did Black Make This Move? instead of where it has been placed.

 

I really think that this book would be better if there were more step-by-step diagrams, rather than a few diagrams, to support the moves discussed.

 

Either way, before you start out you should have a good, basic chess set so that you can see the plays and move the pieces for each move.

 

You will not be a World Champion just by reading Chess for Beginners. Then again, that would be expecting too much from a book designed to teach you the basics.

 

Once you have your copy of this book, you will want to teach your children basic chess and then make the game a part of your family home evening.

Super Easy Vegan Cheese Cookbook: 70 Delicious Plant-Based Cheeses by Janice Buckingham


Watch On YouTube

Many years back, at least 15, there was an advertisement where a family walks into the living room on Christmas morning and there is a major abundance of new toys from Santa.  Someone says something like, “You must have left him some really good cookies.” The little girl says, “I didn’t leave him cookies, I left him cheese.” That year our kids left an institutional size can of cheese under the tree.  It didn’t help.

What if Santa was lactose intolerant, like Tim Allen’s Santa character in The Santa Clause?  If you have Super Easy Vegan Cheese Cookbook: 70 Delicious Plant-Based Cheeses by Janice Buckingham, you will have the answer.

This book is super easy to follow.  There is like a mini course in plant-based cheese making in the front of the book.  There is a list of the very few tools you will need and what basic ingredients you will need to keep on hand.

The instructions tell how you can make your own milk out of nuts like almonds or walnuts, but that you can also make it out of seeds like sesame seeds.

We all need to live healthier.  Big pharma does not want you to be healthy, they want to keep you sick. They have teamed up with Big Farm and the food manufacturers to make sure whatever dairy you get is loaded with things that are bad for you.  The only chance you have of staying healthy is eating a proper, natural diet. Making your own vegan cheese is a step in the right direction.

Super Easy Vegan Cheese Cookbook is very well-written and easy to follow.  The steps are basic and it does not take a long time to make these cheeses.

You will be healthier when you start to eat better. . You probably won’t get a Christmas card from your doctor though.

Is Heaven a Place?: Making Sense of Biblical Stories in the Twenty-first Century by Richard B. Fratianne, MD ISBN: 978-1-4808-6002-5


Watch on YouTube

We typically pray about how to write a proper review of any book before we start to write the review, no matter what the subject of the book.  When we read Is Heaven a Place?: Making Sense of Biblical Stories in the Twenty-first Century by Richard B. Fratianne, MD, and started to write this review, we prayed even more and harder.

It appears that when Fratianne started out to write this book, his intentions were to suggest that his church, the Catholic Church, needed to change the way they presented certain parts of the Bible to make them more relevant to our modern society.

We, David and Suzanne, are both Protestant, from Protestant backgrounds. I, David, was raised as a Southern Baptist in a Bible-believing church.  That is, every word of the Holy Bible is literally true.

Suzanne is from a Holiness background.  The holiness church is also Bible-believing.  For us, every word of the Bible is literally true.  The parables that Jesus used to teach were not based upon any particular person or event, just meant as illustrations.

We have read our Bibles all the way through several times over.  We have read different translations in order to have a better understanding.  At no point did we believe that Adam and Eve did not actually eat the fruit of the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil in the Garden of Eden. It appears that whatever translation of the Bible Fratianne uses only calls it the Tree of Knowledge and leaves off the part of Good and Evil.

It just so happens that this time around in reading the Bible, I am using our oldest daughter’s Saint Joseph Edition of the New American Bible, which is a Catholic Bible.  We looked back at the account of Adam and Eve in this version and it refers to the tree as the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Bad. The author makes his case based upon the name of the tree as the Tree of Knowledge. He then bases his narrative of the fruit ingestion on this name.  

Our big problem in reviewing this book is that we are Protestant and he is Catholic speaking about things within the Catholic Church.  When he speaks of Moses, he speaks of things that we have never heard of. How can we judge him based upon things that aren’t in our Bible and we have not yet read them in the Catholic Bible, when they may be taught as part of the Catholic faith?

Our reading of all the versions of the Bible we have encountered show that Moses fled Egypt as a young man because he had killed an Egyptian who was physically mistreating a Hebrew slave.  Pharaoh found out about this killing and was going to kill Moses because of it.

When Fratianne tells us about Moses leaving Egypt, he tells the story differently from how we learned it in Sunday School and also differently from how it is in any of the Bibles we have consulted.  He tells us that Moses was kicked out of Egypt for proclaiming his Jewish heritage. He was supposedly cast out into the desert with one day’s worth of water and a walking stick.

He tells us that the Burning Bush was not an actual event, but how Moses told Sarah that when we was there,  he saw the bush “As if” it was burning and not being consumed. We have no idea who this particular Sarah is because Moses’ wife at the time was Zipporah.  Moses may or may not have married again later on, but we are not told this. The author does not say this Sarah is Moses’ wife, but then, who is she? Abraham’s wife was Sarah, but she lived over 400 years earlier.  It is not likely that this is the Sarah Moses was talking to.

If nothing else, Fratianne caused us to have some in depth discussions about the Bible and sent us back to study the scriptures even harder.

After reading the take that Fratianne has on the feeding of the 5,000, I began to see that perhaps he meant that things that did actually occur were ALSO metaphors for other things.  That things did actually happen, but the telling of the story is also meant to tell us something else.

Overall, it appears that the author paints a picture of the Catholic church that has adopted practices that would be very much like that of the Pharisees from Jesus’ time on earth.  By that I mean that the church has added things that are not in the Bible. Nowhere in our reading of the Bible do we find that sexual relations between a husband and a wife are a sin. In fact, there are a few places in the Bible where we are told not to withhold that type of intimacy from our spouse.  We are told that sex outside of wedlock is a sin.

From what I gather from reading this book, Catholics are taught that they are born as the result of a sinful act and therefore a baby must be baptised to atone for a sinful life.  Perhaps this is one of the things Dr. Fratianne believes should be adjusted in the Catholic teaching.

I learned a lot while reading Is Heaven a Place?  I don’t agree with some of the ideas of the author, but I would have to say he presents his case well for what he does believe.  The book is very readable and easy to understand what the author is trying to say. I would like to see more scripture reference with a note about what version of the Bible the author used.

Overall, we would recommend this book with the caveat that the reader should be very well grounded in their faith before reading this book.  

This author is a medical doctor. It would seem that if one were unfortunate enough to need the medical services this doctor provides (he deals in critical burn cases),one could not find a better doctor to have.  We all need to know that our medical care team leader is a Christian who has learned the true meaning of servant leadership. Our hats are off to Dr. Fratianne.

Book Review: Trump and the Jews by David Rubin ISBN: 978-0-9829067-7-4


Watch on YouTube

I thought that by now we had read and reviewed just about every type of book there is here at McClendon Villa.  

Then, we are sent a book like Trump and the Jews by David Rubin that is so different in nature, I don’t even know how to categorize it.

Author David Rubin tells us so many things that I never knew that I never knew.  I had heard of the Six Days War. I did not know how amazing it actually was.

This is not your typical “Pro-Trump” book.  And it isn’t anti-Trump by a long shot. What we learn is about many Presidents of the United States and how they opposed Israel.  Any real Christian knows that any enemy of Israel is an enemy of God. No questions asked. Just read your Bible.

Trump and the Jews taught me so many things I did not know about Trump, Jews, former presidents, and Islam.  The writing is engaging and very well presented. The story told about the history of the United States and the history of Israel is an education in and of itself.

For instance, I knew Carter was our worst President without any question.  I knew that Obama was a failed President who had nothing but contempt for the United States of America.  I didn’t know anything about where the other presidents fit in with Israel, but I do now.

No matter what your religion is, you need to read Trump and the Jews.  No matter which side of the political spectrum you are on, you need to read this book.  You will be well rewarded with knowledge for the time spent.

We were sent a complimentary copy of this book.  We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.
