    The techniques mentioned to improve one's memory is rather interesting. Maybe children would have more fun learning how to improve their memory.

    What did you learn from A Mom After God's Own Heart that you would use in your daily life?

    No matter how hectic a schedule I have, I should always make time to pray and invite Jesus to direct my day and that of my family's. I should always share the love of God with my children no matter how old they are.

    This book is really different from all other religious books I've read, in that it focuses on the importance of mothers and their roles in the lives of their children and family. I also observed the many times that it was not too early or too late to begin sharing God's word with our children. It makes a big difference in the lives of future generation.

    No one writes about relationships and parenting quite like humorist Marc Prey. Now comes his first book, a laugh-out-loud funny, brutally honest and deeply touching collection of personal stories about one man's relationship with his spouse and offspring. In When It Comes to Spooning, I'm a Fork, Prey takes listeners on a journey from first awkward date to raising teenagers, all the while exposing moments that seemingly shift from the hilarious to the poignant in the beat of a heart.

    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.

    From all that I've heard and seen in movies one could only imagine the things that really happens on the battle field 'in real life', but reading and seeing war through the 'eyes' of this navy seal was mind blowing. I believe the author was right when he mentioned that the army does not really get the backing they deserve and I guess some will never know and appreciate what soldiers or their families go through when a loved one as to defend both man and country in war.Thanks Chris for sharing your experience!!!

    When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

    I found this story simply amazing!!!. Heaven is For Real and this book only helps to confirm it. The updates, the descriptions of heaven were made simple and to the point. Making it easy to understand and believe.

    Pastor Burpo, continue to do the good work!

    I'm encouraged.

    In 1999 in the Los Rios region of southern Chile, orthopedic surgeon, devoted wife, and loving mother Dr. Mary Neal drowned in a kayak accident. While cascading down a waterfall, her kayak became pinned at the bottom and she was immediately and completely submerged. Despite the rescue efforts of her companions, Mary was underwater for too long, and as a result, died. To Heaven and Back is Mary’s remarkable story of her life’s spiritual journey and what happened as she moved from life to death to eternal life, and back again.

    I've found this book to be very helpful. The background music also helped me to relax yet remained focused on what's being said. It's really good that you can actually follow chapters with the attached PDFs. I'm sure with daily practice I'll be speaking like a native in no time.

    There's an old saying: if you eat a live frog first thing each morning, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that it's probably the worst thing you'll do all day. Using "eat that frog" as a metaphor for tackling the most challenging task of your day, the one you are most likely to procrastinate on, but also the one that might have the greatest positive impact on your life, Eat That Frog! shows you how to zero in on these critical tasks and organize your day.
