Book Review: “Everything” by Janine Cummings

I belong to an awesome Facebook woman’s book club called “Women Aspiring for More” led by Tammy Donaldson.  We recently read and reviewed a book called “Everything” by Janine Cummings.

This book shares the painful journey of Janine losing the love of her life,  who she calls “everything” throughout the book. It describes in detail the emotional pain she felt as she realised the relationship was coming to an end. I felt  the book provided a safe environment for her healing process to begin as Janine effectively and engagingly  poured her emotions out on paper.

Below are some of the points I shared whilst reviewing the book in the book club. I realised that as women we experience these same emotions when we feel we are losing a significant other or some thing precious in our life is ending:

  • Janine describes her desperation to holding on to a relationship that was not working and how she was willing to lower herself to become whatever “everything” wanted in order to keep him.
  • Its the story of a woman who also experienced redemption because after losing the love of “everything” she found HIS  love, the love of God.

I really commend Janine for wearing her heart on her sleeves  and would recommend this book  as a great read, as it demonstrates the process of a woman finding herself and her identity after the loss of  “everything”

Dreams Do Become A Reality ~ My First E-book

 

I started 2016 with a list of goals that I just prayed over and said “God over to you”. I did not know how some of them would be accomplished but I wrote the vision and made it plain.

Well one of my goals was to publish my first eBook. At the time it looked like a huge mountain but God connected me with a class Dawniel Winningham was teaching about ebooks. So I paid for the class and listen and took notes. Then I made contact with Julia Royston, a publisher and she helped me to publish my first book on 19th September. I am in the process of writing other books and can’t wait to launch them in 2017

When  you have a vision, God will connect the dots and cross the T’s. It was a goal that appeared to be so far fetched for me but I wrote it down anyway.

If you had a goal in 2016 that  has not happened then make sure you write it down as your first goal for 2017. Don’t discard or give up on it. Keep praying over it and keep going!

Here is the link to download my eBook on amazon  Click here .It deals with issues that we may have had we our parents and the dangers of passing on those issues to our own children, if we do not deal with them. at the end of each chapter are exercises that you can do.

Your Treasure Within ~Acres of Diamonds

Image ~ Reachingsuchgreatheights.BlogSpot.com

I am in the middle of reading Acres of Diamonds by Russell Conwell (1843 – 1925). Conwell was born in the United States in the mid 1800’s.  He was an ordained minister and his father was a supporter of the Underground Railroad that helped slaves flee the south to escape to the north and their freedom. His family home was a key station for the railroad and he accompanied his father on a few of these trips.

 

His book acres of diamonds is a speech he gave 6152 times throughout the course of his life and it is about the fact that so often we search for so many things in life thinking that they are on the outside of us and we go searching on the outside when actually it is within us.

The bible says we have a treasure in earthen vessels. Our destiny,  future is within us. Jesus within us help us to bring out this treasure.

Look no further because what you need is within you. You may ask but I can’t see it! The reason you can’t see it is because it is covered with the pain and dirt of life and the many things you have gone through. You can never see yourself clearly in a mirror that needed cleaning can you?

Take a moment to pray  and ask God to begin to clean you up so you can see the destiny he has for you because inside of you are acres of diamonds.

 

Books I read in 2015 

  
For 2015 one of my goals was to read two books per month. Unfortunately I did not achieve that goal, I only read 13 books. But for 2016  I will aim to read two per month.

Reading has opened up my mind to how other people live, their experiences and how God can use people to bless others with their gift of writing.

I currently have quite a few books on my kindle to read as well as paper copies, so I aim to complete my goal for 2016.
