Angels by Jack Graham - my review

Angels : Who They Are, What They Do, and Why It Matters by Jack Graham is an interesting book on the topic of Angels.  I always loved the TV show - Touched By An Angel starring Roma Downey, which showed guardian angels always helping people. Roma Downey writes a beautiful forward to this book as well.

The author uses scripture as well as true life stories to explain Angels and who they are and what their purpose is in this book. Broken up in four parts,
1. The Wisdom of Angels as You Start the Journey
2. The Protection of Angels as You Sustain Life's Blows
3. The Encouragement of Angels as You Soar on Eagle's Wings
4. The Presence of Angels as You Stay the Course With Christ

No we shouldn't idolize them, but LEARN from them. As they watch over us, protect us, and teach us to worship God! I loved this book and highly recommend it to others who also would like to learn more about Angels.

I received a FREE copy from Bethany House in exchange for my HONEST review, rather it be bad or good.

The Anxious Christian by Rhett Smith - my review

The Anxious Christian : Can God Use Your Anxiety For Good? by Rhett Smith starts out with the author telling of his own anxiety when younger, and how God uses it and him.

I've always thought badly of my anxiety but the author has given me hope with this book, and how God can use me.

One of my favorite quotes from the book says...
"It is ok to be anxious, but don't hide and bury those anxieties in hopes that they may somehow get better or completely disappear. They won't. Instead, choose to face them and allow God to grow you in the process. It is an act of courage you will not regret." page 88

Doesn't that say a lot? It has gave me hope that even though I have anxiety, God can still use me if I open up and let him guide me.  I enjoyed reading and learning from this book and would recommend it to others who may also suffer from anxiety.

I received a free copy from Moody Publishers in exchange for my honest review of this book.
