**** COVER REVEAL ****

Welcome and thank you for joining. 

* I ask that if you like the cover, please share it and pass on the word of the upcoming release *


Best Friends for Life; Yet Husband and Wife 


Description:

Marriage can be surreal, unpredictable, and enticing all at the same time. We find and fall in love with our best friend, and all of our dreams seem to be coming true. We've heard of the princess being rescued by her prince and they ride off in the sunset to live happily ever after. Unfortunately, this isn't how marriage is in real life, especially when you're trying to be what God has called you to be. Marriage is two self-centered individuals coming together to live as one.
Given all the foes and dips that may come with marriage, this book gives the basic understanding of marriage the way God intended and not as the way fairy tales has made it out to be. Its meant to help wives be more self-sacrificial toward their husband by acting in grace, love, and forgiveness. In this journey with our best friends, we can work toward being more humbling and giving. It takes more than love alone for a great marriage. The basis of a great marriage starts with a strong spiritual foundation, a strong friendship which grew into a strong romance, along with tons of work, sacrifices, and submission by both partners to make it last.
This book provides Rae-Beth's opinion with communication, getting through the tough times, fair fighting, and keeping God the center of the marriage. Dive in and see marriage from one wife's perspective.

Book Corner: Breakthrough Faith Discussion

Welcome to our fourth week of discussing Larry Sparks book, "Breakthrough Faith: Living A Life Where Anything Is Possible".


This week we are talking about ten through twelve.

God is willing!

Bold and powerful. I believe this is one thing we need to reflect back on during the day. When we are reading the stories within the Bible, we must remember that the same God that's in those stories is the very same God who is with us today. Everything He was willing to do back then, He's willing to do now. He wants to use us in the same powerful ways He used those in the bible times. 

Just as God is willing and able, we need to be willing and able to approach Him. We need to step His way open, willing, and unafraid. It doesn't matter what sins we have done in our pasts because God doesn't define us. God's wrath toward sin was settled when Jesus went to the cross. We need to believe that and receive it through our faith. Jesus took the wrath so we wouldn't have to. (Thank you, Jesus!)

Therefore, let's push off anything false that the enemy is trying to make us believe and show him that our God loves us REGARDLESS of our past. With this gives us true hope in our future. We shouldn't allow the enemy to condemn us for our sins because THEY ARE FORGIVEN! 

After this week's reading, how would you define hope? How did it speak to you?

Book Corner: Breakthrough Faith Discussion

** I do apologize for the discussion being late.**

Welcome to our third week of discussing Larry Sparks book, "Breakthrough Faith: Living A Life Where Anything Is Possible". 

This week we are talking about chapters seven through nine.

In this section, Larry covers in more detail about breakthrough faith. 

The Holy Spirit is God on earth and we need to intentionally develop a relationship with the Holy Spirt to experience breakthrough faith. We must realize that the Holy Spirit is a Person who is just as much God as the Father and the Son. In relation to the relationship that's discussed, we need to be intentional when developing the relationship because the Holy Spirit is the only way to ever know God. I loved this quote in Chapter seven on page 80: "When we intentionally pursue a relationship with the Holy Spirit, He reveals Jesus to us and, as a result, we get to know God the Father in a greater way." 

While reading, I didn't realize that the Holy Spirit gives us a revelation of who Jesus is on earth and what He accomplished. While reading these chapters, I have been given a greater understanding to who the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As it's said in chapter seven, page 81, "Many people rightly focus on doing what Jesus did, but we must begin by looking at who Jesus was and who He ultimately revealed." This one jumped out at me with such power. I full heartedly agree that by knowing this, it'll bring us closer to God.

One important point that Larry makes is definitely one to make note of and always remember, "Breakthrough faith all begins with knowing Him." If we don't take the time to fully know Him, how are we to live as He did?

A bit further into the reading, it's said... Salvation is not simply about going to Heaven some day. It's not just haveing a relationship with Jesus. Salvation and eternal life begin with truly knowing Him.

I know that God is willing and able to work through me and after reading this week's discussion chapters, I feel even more open to God's voice. I'm willing and able to hear Him for Him to do His works through me. In order to do this, I need to remember that the Bible is the benchmark for what we can believe God for. His promises are true now as they were back in the Bible times. 

What did you take from this week's reading? Anything jump out at you?
