Mirror Ball Book Review:

Internationally known worship leader and songwriter Matt Redman invites readers to a deeper understanding of what it means to reflect God’s dazzling radiance. In Mirror Ball, Redman eloquently illustrates why passion is more than a song or a feeling. It’s a story of guts and glory, pain, and purpose. For anyone ready to follow Jesus, passion is a way of life. Through story, Scripture, and practical inspiration, Redman encourages readers to remember that, however inadequate they may feel to live out this passion, God will work in and through them, just as light radiates through the smallest prism. After all, the same God who said “let there be light” has made His light to shine in their hearts, illuminating their lives and the lives of those around them.

Women's soccer has never been more popular. At the top of the sport's list of star players is Mia Hamm. Her speed, aggressive play, and ability to "read the field" have sparked every team she's ever played on. At the University of North Carolina, she helped the Tar Heels capture four NCAA championships. Her continually stellar performances with the United States national team led them to win two out of three Women's World Cups, first in 1991 and again in 1999. And as a member of the 1996 gold medal-winning Olympic team, she played an outstanding final game on a sprained ankle. The holder of the world record for most goals scored in a career, she is the hero of thousands of soccer fans worldwide. Readers will devour every detail of this insightful biography of the best women's soccer player in the world. Get an up-close look at this superstar athlete with Matt Christopher, the number one sports series for kids.

Motherhood, Mental Illness and Recovery Book Review:

Despite the importance of regaining social roles during recovery from mental illness, the intersection between motherhood and serious mental illness is often overlooked. This book aims to rectify that neglect. A series of introductory chapters describing current research and services available to mothers with serious mental illness are followed by personal accounts of clients reflecting on their parenting experiences. One goal of the book is to provide clinicians with information that they can use to help patients struggling with questions and barriers in their attempts to parent. The inclusion of personal accounts of mothers on issues such as stigma, fears and discrimination in the context of parenting with a mental illness is intended to promote the message of mental illness recovery to a larger audience as well. Finally, it is hoped that this handbook will help inspire more research on mothers with mental illness and the creation of more services tailored to their needs.

Prayers to My King Book Review:

Prayers to My King is a beautiful gift book created to help women connect intimately with their God. Where the first book in the His Princess™ series reminded us that we are loved intimately and unconditionally by our King, this second book helps us express our deepest thoughts, desires, fears and failures by emulating King David in the Psalms and crying out to God through prayer. Christian women will gain a personal, dynamic prayer life. You want to feel God’s presence… embrace His promises… cry out to Him… …but don’t know how! From your heart’s deepest cry to life’s joyful praises, nothing is off limits to Him. Go confidently now before His throne as you claim these powerful prayers as your own. He hears every word. He’s waiting to hear from you. If from there you will seek the Lord your God, you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and soul and life. Deuteronomy 4:29, AMP Story Behind the Book “Too many of God’s “chosen ones” don’t know how to have a real relationship with their Lord. We want to feel His presence, but we don’t know how to let Him in. We want to see His promises come true, but we don’t believe they are for us personally. We want to experience His power, but we keep trying to live life in our own strength. We want to cry out to Him, but we’re afraid to break down and admit that we’re weak. My prayer for this book is that women of God will have a personal, life-changing prayer life and be transformed into the daughters of the King they were destined to be from the beginning.”
