A Book Review: God is in the Equation by Adrienna Dionna Turner

I must say the cover and title along caught my interest to read this book. Wow, I tell you it is a book that will change your understanding about what it means to be a person of faith.

Turner challenges us to look beyond just adding God when we need Him. But be willing to work in the true authority God has provided us to fulfill our God given purpose. Her questions at the end were very thought provoking and definitely make you look deep inside. This is not one of those books where you read and move to the next book. No, you really need to read it with intention and focus so you can began to move forward in destiny.

I truly enjoyed this book and recommend you read. Definitely, a great book for adult discipleship groups. If you are serious about taking your spiritual life to another level – FOR REAL, then read “God is in the Equation”, your journey to spiritual maturity awaits you!

Available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other bookstores.

Wow, Does Time Flies!

New Me

As I sit here and look out of the window, it is such a beautiful day. I was thinking, it is less than 90 days remaining in 2011. This time of year, I usually do self-reflection. I ask myself: "look back on this year which of your goals have you reached"? "Which ones haven't you reached? Has it been a good year"? "A productive or non-productive year"?

Friend, as a word of encouragement to you, take some time to ask yourself these questions as well and dot down your answers. I have an even better idea! Take this time to get a journal and journal your answers, this way when you read your journal this time next year you can see the progress you have made.

I always have kept a journal. Even as a little girl, I kept a diary. My thoughts, my ideas, my successes, my challenges and whatever else I decide to keep track of where my life is concerned. I invite you to do the same. You never know what may happen. Your journal may end up a book ...**wink**!

Life is ever changing. Things happen and as time moves forward we often forget about them. Capture those precious moments of your life and then go back and read them just to see how far you have come. You would even surprise yourself! Keep moving, stay on purpose, and have an awesome week!
