Very good book!!!

Because I know so little on the subject, this book gave incredible insight. In fact, the book gave me great wisdom.

The narrator was STELLAR.

Q? Was there a reason why the third book (beginners) wasn’t the first?

Overall I recommend any beginner check out this book!

What a book! Thank you Marshawn for writing it and thank you Jack for encouraging Marshawn.

I received this book as a gift from my pastor who attended The Millions Conference. God bless her a million times over. It’s a true game changer! I was SO wedged in fear, doubt and unbelief. Ninety-Nine percent of what was shared was me. I needed it because Little Me talked all the time.

After reading, all I can say is Praise God. What I gained from this book is: (1) The book is a manual/guide, not just a great read. (2) I learned to silence Little Me. (3) Finish what you start what totally for me, and most importantly, (4) I Matter.

Fear was smothering me. But at this moment, I see so differently. Old things are truly past away, look, all things new.

A panoramic historical novel of the last days of Jesus Christ, The Spear tells the full story of all the participants involved in the dramatic execution, including the seldom remembered Roman soldier who thrust his spear into Christ as he hung on the cross. With a dramatic narration by Richard Ferrone, The Spear is a must listen for anyone interested in the history of the New Testament.

I recommend it to all who say the know Jesus. In fact, this should be recommended reading.
And Richard Ferone? My good, WOW!!! In my opinion, he is THE absolute BEST NARRATOR E-V-E-R! Great voice. Just LOVE his voice. The best in the business.

Paul, Apostle of Christ is the story of two men. Luke, as a friend and physician, risks his life every time he ventures into the city of Rome to visit Paul, held captive in Nero's bleakest prison cell. Before Paul's execution, Luke resolves to write another book, one that details the beginnings of "The Way" and the birth of what will come to be known as the church. But Nero is determined to rid Rome of Christians.

Powerful and moving!! I cried. If I were not saved, I would surely wish to give my life to Jesus Christ.

Love this book. Great GREAT job Angela!! The narrator was awesome too!

I bless God Almighty for Jesus staying the course. And, I bless Him for Paul, Luke, and so many others who, willingly gave of themselves, and being able to witness Paul and Luke’s TRUE friendship and servanthood. I so loved Aquila and Priscilla, and those that were among the community. Loved the roll of Marishus Gallos (sp) too. This was simply and profoundly a GREAT book. Thank you for your labor of love.

Best-selling author John Eckhardt addresses a common wound that everyone experiences, often early in life. It is the sense of being unwanted and unable to receive love from others. You will break free from manifestations of rejection such as perfectionism, fear, withdrawing from life, pride, self-reliance, people pleasing, lust, insecurity, inferiority, shame, and more.

I LOVE THIS BOOK!! It’s a manual. I bless God because I did not realize how intrenched rejection was in my life. I’ve been walking with the Lord for many years and, by his grace, he’s allowed me to be a blessing yet sadness and great despair would often come and I’d be down for days until something would trigger me back. Thank GOD for this book-thus blessing. This book along with Unshakable should be required reading, esp. among apostles and prophets. May the Lord bless Apostle John. May God’s continual revelation be mighty upon him. Amen.

"The dirty little secret about most organizing advice is that it's written by organized people," says blogger, speaker, and decluttering expert Dana K. White. "But that's not how my brain works. I'm lost on page three." Dana blogs at A Slob Comes Clean, chronicling her successes and failures with her self-described "deslobification process". In the beginning she used the name Nony (short for aNONYmous), because she was sharing her deep, dark slob secret. Now she has truly come clean - with not only her real name but the strategies she has developed.

While the world seems to be in love with the idea of tiny houses and minimalism, real women with real families who are constantly growing and changing simply can't purge it all and start from nothing. Yet a home with too much stuff is a home that is difficult to maintain, so where do we begin? Add in paralyzing emotional attachments and constant life challenges, and it can feel almost impossible to make real decluttering progress.

Loved the book! So many take aways, incredible stories and blessings in this book. Gratitude surely goes far. Daymond’s personal story of his upbringing so blessed me; thank God for his incredible mother.

Loved the “What’s Your Club” section. I especially loved the description of Kevin O’Leary, the Renascence man. But, I have to say Daymond’s story regarding thyroid cancer was very moving - set him on another powerful course. I recently began on course to doing more about my health and well-being.

This book was well written and well read. Thank you Sway and Daymond for a job well done. It receives six stars from me.

Finally, it is my prayer this book does far more than Daymond John could ever ask or think. Marva Morris

Incredible, incredible novel. Well written and well narrated. From beginning to end, I felt it all.
Like many extraordinary stories I’ve read over the years, I can see and embrace the struggles. The end of this story was surely a far cry from its beginning I am happy to say. I am more than glad I read it. This receives a huge five *star*! :)
