I have read a lot of devotional books in my time- some on my own and some with my wife . But nothing has sent me on a spiritual journey like I have with reading "Living Life In The Zone". This is a must read for any man who is planning on having a family or who has one. This 40 day-day journey in discovering a fulfilled life the way God has intended us to have.This book lists everything from putting God first and a saying like "True Happiness is found only in Jesus and in his word. We are to be a part of the fallen world but not controlled by it". We really need to stop and take time to to see what is important to us and what happiness really is. This book helped to open my eyes to that. And there are many selections. They range from loving your wife and building her up, there is one for the kids, about friends, about work, about dealing with daily stress. Each selection has a thought of the day ,the coach's corner,the game plan,play makers,time out, and Today's Assignment. This book is well thought out and written for any man from any walk of life to pick up and read. This is a must have for any man to read over and over again, because you will always take something away from it no matter how many times you read it. This book is now part of my daily Devotions .

This is a wonderful book written about millions of people vanishing off the face of our planet all at once, leaving the rest of humanity wondering what has happened to them and why. One of the main characters in this story is named Bradley Benton, whose wife and kids have vanished. Brad works close to the President Gerald Filzhugh, as his spiritual adviser. Brad realizes that the rapture has come to pass once he finds out that his family was among the ones who vanished. He remembers the faith that his wife and kids had, and he realizes that just saying you are a Christian and actually being one are two different things.
Another character, Rev. Marcus Dumont, also realizes the disappearings were a result of the rapture. However, he didn't go to Heaven because he blamed God for the loss of his wife.
And then there's Mariette Arnold, who works for FEMA, and is worried about her son Randal who left college and is trying to get to her. All this sets the stage for a wonderful story, and a gives us a lesson that we should learn and share- that no matter what the future holds we will always have God's promises. And we should keep God's word close to our hearts
By Amie Streater
As Dave Ramsey states in the prelude , that Amie Streater delivers a powerful message of common sense and Biblical wisdom that today's churchgoers desperately need. And I for one can do nothing but agree. Nothing can educate you like life or at least someone who has experienced things , or has been there themselves. Amie Streater has fought the fight of living beyond her means and has been in debt. And, she has added some personal experiences of her battle with financial debt, which has changed her families' life style and outlook on life. This book, Your Money God's Way: Overcoming the Money Myths that Keep Christians Broke, explains that God always has and will provide for his children. It is up to us to recognize those blessings and use the wisdom of Solomon to not only get out of debt, but stay out using common sense by some of the technology such as the 10-10-80 rule, which is nothing short but genius and just plain common sense. And she lets you know to never say a negative comment, and the fact is, our words have a tremendous amount of power over our lives. What we speak has the power to become what we actually experience.
