Now, here’s a short description of the book, “I Am Number 8”

If God can take David–the invisible eighth son of a forgotten family–and turn him into a king, just imagine what magnificent plans He has for redeeming your life.

David was born a number 8–a hidden gem, often overlooked and undervalued by everyone except for God. For David, being a number 8 seemed like a curse until the day God transformed him from the unknown eighth son of Jesse into the much-honored king of Israel.

When God sends out an invitation to greatness, His directions don’t always make sense to us. You may feel like the most invisible, broken number 8 out there, but God sees your hidden value and is growing you for better things. David didn’t know it, but his time as a simple shepherd with a dull future did not go unnoticed by God. In David’s darkest moments, he was cultivating the kind of gifts, wisdom, and leadership he would need to become a king. Even when you’re an underdog in the eyes of the world, God is working behind the scenes to develop you into a king or queen.

Now, here’s a brief review of the book, “I Am Number 8”

At one point or another in our lives, we all feel as if we’re overlooked, undervalued, and like we don’t matter much to God or to others. This feeling may last for a very long time, but what we don’t know is that every situation and encounter is divinely set to help make us into the person God wants us to be. Using the story of David, John Gray uses scripture and wit to urge readers to discover their hidden value in God. The worst environments can be the birthing place for an extraordinary future. We highly recommend this book.

Now, here’s a brief review of the book, “I See Whispers of the Snakes in the Grass”

People often try to define themselves and especially others by the mistakes they make and failures they encounter. It can be difficult to pick one’s self up when people who are supposed to be your friends are talking about you behind your back. But the way to full wholeness and reconciliation in mind and soul is by letting God have his way. In I See Whispers of the Snakes in the Grass, C. NaTasha Richburg guides readers on the journey of Anabela and Ramon and the unexpected, faithful workings of God in their lives. It serves as a beautiful reminder that God always gives beauty for ashes. We highly recommend this book.

Boldly change your life and those you influence by developing an ear to not only hear, but to also listen to God’s heart.

Remember, if you don’t know Christ as Saviour, John 3:16 says: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” If you want to trust Christ as your Saviour, believe in your heart that he died, was buried, and rose from the dead for you. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

For the saints, “Keep looking up for your redemption draweth nigh.”
