Vivica A. Fox is a dynamo who has created a lasting career on her own, through sheer, roll-up-your-sleeves DIY hustle. Every Day I'm Hustling is a personal book with a message Fox passionately believes in: that you make your own luck, that you never ever wake up in the morning thinking somebody's going to call you and offer you that part or ask you out on that date that's going to change your life, that you have to wake up and put on your longest eyelashes and fiercest heels and go out and make your life happen yourself.

I'm breaking up with setups. No more “you should meet my son, nephew, grandson, the butcher, the guy down the street who mows my lawn.” People mean well, but machines know better, so I'll rely on the great dating algorithms of the web to find my ideal man, thank you very much. Soon enough, it looks like I’ve found him - his screen name is Lucky Suit, and he’s hilarious, quick-witted, and full of heart. But when we finally get together in person, I have the distinct feeling I’ve met him before. Funny enough - he says the same thing about me.

  • The Prayer of Jabez

  • Breaking Through to the Blessed Life
  • By: Bruce Wilkinson, David Kopp

Bruce Wilkinson takes listeners to 1 Chronicles 4:10 to discover how they can release God's miraculous power and experience the blessings God longs to give each of us. The life of Jabez, one of the Bible’s most overlooked heroes of the faith, bursts from unbroken pages of genealogies in an audacious, four-part prayer that brings him an extraordinary measure of divine favor, anointing, and protection. Listeners who commit to offering the same prayer on a regular basis will find themselves extravagantly blessed by God, and agents of His miraculous power, in everyday life.

I don't know where to start. This book really opened my eyes to a lot of things that I have been dealing with in my own life but suppressed. Thank you Gabriel for taking the time to share your life, lessons and journey with us. We got a picture of who you really are and not what Hollywood has made up about you. You are freaking amazing, thank you for being you.

This is one of the most inspiring books I've read to date. I love how she showed us all sides of her life and not just the glamorous stuff. She shows us who she is and where she come from, her story can inspire others to just keep pushing themselves to go the extra mile and anything is possible.
