Switching Time

"A doctor's harrowing story of treating a women with 17 personalities."

One afternoon in 1989, Karen Overhill walks into psychiatrist Richard Baer’s office complaining of vague physical pains and depression. Odder still, she reveals that she’s suffering from a persistent memory problem. Routinely, she “loses” parts of her day, finding herself in places she doesn’t remember going to or being told about conversations she doesn’t remember having. Her problems are so pervasive that she often feels like an impersonator in her own life; she doesn’t recognize the people who call themselves her friends, and she can’t even remember being intimate with her own husband. source: http://www.switchingtime.com/

My Review :
What an amazing story of tragedy and triumph.As soon as I got my hands on this book I COULD NOT put it down.As I kept reading I was in shock as to how someone such as "Karen" could survive an go on  with the events that had happened to her.I read and read as if there was no ending to this book,yes its that good.When things started to come to light you really get to understand the functions each personality had,their story is Remarkable.One would think that how is it even possible to have so many entities in you that you yourself are not aware of . Overall this story is AMAZING. I strongly recommend it to anyone who happens to come across this book.

Review-Life Promises For Couples




Book Description
Publication Date: December 30, 2011
Everybody wants a strong, loving, God-centered marriage. In Life Promises for Couples, New York Times bestselling relationship expert Dr. Gary Chapman provides trusted words of wisdom designed to encourage and inspire couples, alongside key Bible verses that illuminate God’s plan for marriage and for nurturing healthy, happy relationships. Whether you are a young couple just starting out or you’ve just celebrated your 50th wedding anniversary, your marriage is sure to benefit from the timeless wisdom contained in this beautifully designed two-color gift book.

My Review-
There is no better way to start the day than with a word from God and devotionals are a great way to do that and explore the bible at the same time. Spending a few minutes each morning together allows my husband and I to center ourselves before starting the day. My hubs doesn't have a huge attention span, but this book is set up so that it only takes a few minutes to read each day. It is a beautiful little hard back book that can be for any couple, even those just dating. There are a few Life Promises or scriptures each day and then a devotional page to go with them. We are loving this book and recommend it highly!


My copy of this book was provided by Tyndale House Publishing free of charge. I was not required to write a positive review of this book, and all opinions expressed are my own.

BookReview: When Work & Family Collide



For more info click here
Wanna read chapter one? go here
Aurthor Bio here

My Review-
This is a must read for anyone with a family, especially fathers. In this book, Andy teaches about the balance that we believe exists between work and home. Many workers today are working for some distant goal and putting their families on hold for the future - and they are missing out.
He talks about the principle that God called us to be part of our family and we can not be replaced in that unit, so we should not give priority to our job, where we can be replaced. When all is said and done, our family will still exist, or job will not.As a stay at home mom this book really spoke to me even if I dont work sometimes my priorities are on things like doing the laundry and such and as I was reading this it got me thinking.Overall good book for anyone who wants to make family a little better.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.

Do you believe in miracles? many people ask this question and many say no,I my self not being very"christian" like do believe in them.Its something that happen not even science can prove its exsistance on why things happen the way they do.This book talk about real life experiances from many different types of people,some believe some dont.I had moments where I couldnt believe at what I was reading,times where I wanted to cry and times where I was just plain happy for the outcome of the person involved.Every chapter has its story as well as questions to ask yourself,I really liked this book for its simple intake on what is considered a miracle.I highly recommend it.
