You Were Born For This

by: Bruce Wilkinson

Published Summary: His New York Times phenomenon The Prayer of Jabez changed how millions pray. Now Bruce Wilkinson wants to change what they do next.
Anyone can do a good deed, but some good works can only happen by a direct intervention from God. Around the world these acts are called miracles—not that even religious people expect to see one any time soon. But what would happen if millions of ordinary people walked out each morning expecting God to deliver a miracle through them to a person in need? You Were Born for This starts with the dramatic premise that everyone at all times is in need of a miracle, and that God is ready to meet those needs supernaturally through ordinary people who are willing to learn the “protocol of heaven.”
In the straightforward, story-driven, highly motivating style for which he is known, Wilkinson describes how anyone can be a “Delivery Guy” from heaven in such universally significant arenas of life as finances, practical help, relationships, purpose, and spiritual growth.

You Were Born for This will change how readers see their world, and what they expect God can do through them to meet real needs. They will master seven simple tools of service, and come to say with confidence, “I want to deliver a supernatural gift from God to someone in need today—and I expect to!”

My Thoughts:
I recieved this book in the mail a few weeks ago and I have to admit I read it with preconceived notions or judgments about what I would be reading. The title and little book blurbs caused great concern that what I was to read was The prayer of Jabez meets the Prosperity Gospel with a few words changed. I was completely floored when I got into that it was none of that.

This is a book that teaches you how to be open to God, how to listen for His prompts and or detours, and then most importantly how to act on it. So much of the Christian world these days is all talk and this book teaches you to take notice and the miracles God does and jump in and be a part of them.

I walked away from reading this excited and ready to be used by God.

I encourage everybody to read this book and read it with an open mind to what God has for you in your day to day.

Klampert’s Notes on the book: I recieved this book in the mail a few weeks ago to do review on it. Much to my surprise it was a book by a woman for women. So I passed it off to two women in my church who both devoured it. They were not able to get me reviews on it quick enough, but they both LOVED it. One of the women said “It’s almost like this lady lived my life…” They got a ton out of it and they have said they recommend it highly.

Jungle Jack’s The Wackiest, Wildest, and Weirdest Animals in the World
By Jack Hanna

Have you ever seen a naked mole rat? Do you know what a binturong is? Do you know what kind of bird has a deadly kick? These are the world’s wackiest, wildest, and weirdest animals with expert and host Jungle Jack Hanna.

As a member of Thomas Nelson’s Book Review Blogger program 
http://brb.thomasnelson.com/ I received this book to review last week. The minute the box was opened my kids, 8, 4, and 19 months, all attacked the package to see what was in it. A kids book! My kids devoured it from cover to cover. 

Jungle Jack’s is a well written simple book on some crazy animals. It is colorful with it’s huge pictures and exciting design. The large format of the book makes it great for all sizes of hands.

The included DVD is a nice addition, but it could have been longer and with more animals.

The quality of this children’s book is really good. Most of the facts in the book are easily read by a child, but there are some paragraphs of info that encourage involvement by parents.

I think this book would be a great buy for any family with kids under 8 years old.

Hillsong Kids: Follow You
Kids Live Worship
CD, DVD, & Digital songbook

Buy on amazon & Integrity

Integrity just released these to the US and I actually got my copy this afternoon. I was on my way to pick up my 8 year old from school when I decided to pop it in the CD player.

My 3 year old asked “is this a God song?…I love the drums on this one!” Yes he is a rocker kid. My other son jumped in the car and I had my 3 year old, 8 year old and 1 year old all headbanging to Take it All in thier car seats like a scene out of “Wayne’s World”

They loved it. I could review this till the cows come home and you honestly would not care, but they put it out for kids. My kids loved it. we don’t have a huge kids service at my church but if you did then you need to get the digital sheet music and get your kids doing these songs.

They also put out a DVD with resources, Action lessons, split tracks, concerts etc. It is a great resource for your kids at home or even at church.

This here is the clincher.

We have a rule in my house. My kids can’t watch or listen to anything that is wicked annoying. Like Barney UGH!

This CD can be listened to by a normal human being and not only will they not gag they will be head banging and worshiping with the kids in the back seat.

If you have kids then get it. If you don’t have kids then get a kid and then get the CD. Enjoy.
