#137: Love Out Loud - Joyce Meyer

(Affiliate link)


Jesus said, "You must love the Lord your God with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself." - Luke10:27
If one had to choose a single verse in the Bible that is a formula for successful living, this would be the one to live by, says Joyce Meyer: love God, yourself and others - in that order. 

Many Christians get mixed up about love. They know they should love God and others, but many do not understand that loving oneself is one-third of God's equation. They mistakenly think of it as selfishness or self-aggrandizement.

Joyce Meyer believes that this misconception is one of the greatest pitfalls in the Christian journey. Loving oneself in a balanced, healthy manner is essential in order to have healthy relationships with God, ourselves and others.

Drawing upon her previous work and teaching series as well as original devotions, the author of Power Thoughts examines the three loves that we've been commanded to exhibit.


  • Hardcover: 384 pages
  • Publisher: FaithWords; 1 edition (November 2, 2011)
  • ISBN: 9780446538473
  • AMAZON US


Author Bio:
Joyce Meyer is one of the world's leading practical Bible teachers, with her TV and radio broadcast, Enjoying Everyday Life, airing on nearly 450 television networks and 400 radio stations worldwide, including ABC Family Channel, Trinity Broadcast Network, Daystar, and the Word Network.
Her bestselling books include Battlefield of the MindLook Great, Feel Great, The Confident Woman, Never Give Up! and Power Thoughts.
Joyce holds conferences approximately 15 times each year, worldwide, speaking to thousands.


My Review:
I love devotionals.
I especially love Joyce Meyer's devotionals.
I don't know if it's because she writes from a female perspective or if it is the subject put forth, but I always feel a connection to the daily story and often find I question myself after reading it. This is exactly what I think a devotional should do to you, and for me, her books always fit the bill. I'm just sad now as I don't have a book of Joyces' for 2013.

#136: Mornings With Jesus 2012

(Affiliate link)


 "Be Still and Know that I Am God" is one of the most beautiful verses from the Bible. But it's not easy to practice in this busy world. Mornings With Jesus 2012 will help usher you  into the quiet you crave, where you can experience more of Jesus' beautiful and powerful presence.
 In a year's worth of devotions, Mornings With Jesus 2012 offers a fresh perspective of who this Healer, Comforter, Good Shepherd and Son of God is, and gives deeper understanding of what that means for you.
 The warm and friendly voices of seven women reflect on the character and teachings of Jesus, and encourage you to draw near to Him and invite His presence, truth and relevance into your life. Each devotion includes a Scripture verse, an insightful reflection on Jesus' words, wisdom, compassion and comfort, and a faith step that will inspire and challenge you.
 Spend time with Jesus in the morning, and experience His nearness and peace throughout your day.


  • Paperback: 378 pages
  • ASIN: B008N213KI


My Review:
While I enjoyed reading the stories and making the connection to faith and morality, it didn't have quite the impact as I hoped it would. For me, this one was more like reading a Chicken Soup for the Soul book, and you all know how I love those books for a pick-me-up, so this is a good thing. I did always question myself afterward, the story and passage from the Bible sparked that process, it just didn't happen every time.
Still I am glad I read it, as I feel it added an extra bit of goodness to my day.

#135: An Insult-A-Day - Ross & Kathy Petras

(Affiliate link)


We've been taught it's best to say nothing if we have nothing nice to say, but sometimes being nice is overrated. Then, firing off a one-liner or unleashing a long-winded diatribe is the only course of action--and so much more satisfying. An Insult A Day: Scathing (but funny) Quips and Gibes 2012 Day-to-Day Calendar contains pithy proclamations from politicians, comedians, talk show hosts, and celebrities, as well as the best zingers from movies and television shows. When it's time to really speak your mind, any one of these well-placed barbs will get the point across.

Buy An Insult A Day 2013



My Review:
A laugh each morning is what I had to look forward to while reading this one. Each day was a new insult or gibe, though it was in tasteful humor and not hurtful. There were moments that I'm sure some people wouldn't appreciate much, but being told in jest needs to be taken with a grain of salt. I just see humor for what it is. Insulting or not.

2013 Non-Fiction Challenge

The Challenge:  Read any non-fiction book(s), adult or young adult.That's it. You can choose anything. Memoirs? Yes. History? Yes. Travel? Yes. You get the idea? Absolutely anything that is classified as non-fiction counts for this challenge. 

Dilettante--Read 1-5 non-fiction books

Seeker--Read 11-15

Master--Read 16-20

This challenge will last from January 1 to December 31, 2013. You can sign up anytime throughout the year.

My Review:
This book is a great source for a daily quote of inspiration. With so many quotes, from not-very-famous to very famous people and of all walks of life. Each day lends a new perspective and outlook on life. It helped make a great start to my day!

#133: Luminaire - Ciye Cho

(Affiliate link)


Being the only human in a world of merfolk... isn't easy. Florence Waverley chose to stay in Niemela, but things have gone awry. Secrets have risen and the prince she cares about has pulled away. All the while, dark dreams warn her of a tragedy that only she can stop. But in order to save the merman she loves, Florence will have to enter the Life Path tournament: a brutal test of fear and madness.

The tournament is a rite of passage--a maze where young mermaids and mermen battle to find their purpose. It is also a place where Florence will face grave danger: mermaids with evil magic, tunnels filled with sea fire, and guardians who wish to use her as a pawn in their secret plans. But will Florence be strong enough to survive the tournament... or will she perish inside it?

Everything hangs in the balance: her life, her world, and her love.

My review of book 1, Florence


My Review:
A bittersweet ending!
I now have to wait for the next book to find out the cliffhanger that I'm dangling from.... thanks Ciye!
Still it's worth it. So much action and adventure, the visuals you get when the author describes the colorful settings, my goodness, what's not to like?!
This was a great second book. I don't think you should read it as a stand alone though, so get a copy of Florence first if you haven't read it already.
