Double book review

About the book:
 
 
According to Cottrell, God's goodness is predictable. His mercy is dependable. His ability to work in every moment of every reader's life, leading them to him, is unfailing. But even in those moments, even the most devout are distracted by great distress, failing to see or acknowledge God's presence and provision. Cottrell reminds readers that God is the hope, strength and deliverance we desperately need. In every circumstance, especially those moments when we least expect it, God's voice can be heard and his presence discerned. He Knows Your Name is a beautiful, 2-color book sure to be treasured.

My Opinion:
 
This book is a short ten chapters but is a true treasure that I know you'll fall in love with it, just like I did.  The past year and a half have been a huge struggle for our family.  We sold our house out of necessity, moved 3 times, almost all of our stuff is still in storage, my brother in law has been fighting cancer and my husband has been in horrible pain due to a car accident.  Through it all I somehow tried to stay strong for my family but I forgot to lean on the Lord.  Why did I do that?  I got caught up in the everyday problems that we call life.  This book was like a breath of fresh air for me.  I took a step back and remember that yes, He does know my name.  He knows the trials and temptations that I face on a daily basis and he still loves me despite all of my faults and weakness.  He has called me by name to follow Him and I feel better just resting in that peaceful thought.  He has a plan for my family, that burden doesn't need to rest on my shoulders anymore.  After reading this I placed all of my cares upon Him and had to re-read the book again because I had read it so fast the first time.   
 
Now, onto the second book which was just as good for my spiritual walk with the Lord as this one was.
 
 
 
About the book:
 
 
A touching gift book that helps readers understand the power and beauty of prayer and how it can transform our hearts, so that we can be a catalyst for transformation in others. Many of us seek to be blessed more than we seek to bless others. It’s our heart aligned with the heart of God that brings blessing, because He is by nature extravagantly generous and loves giving gifts. No matter where readers are on their journey with God, they will be motivated and inspired to open their hearts and discover the abundant joy and peace that can be theirs through the power of a simple prayer of blessing.

Michael W Smith
 
In addition to winning several Grammy and Dove awards, Michael W. Smith has recorded more than 22 albums and had numerous hit songs in the Christian market and on mainstream radio. He is also involved in relief work, at home and around the world, and is the founder of Rocketown, an outreach to teenagers in a 38,000 square-foot facility in downtown Nashville, Tennessee. He has written several best-selling books including Old Enough to Know and Friends Are Friends Forever. He and his wife, Debbie, have 5 children and live in Nashville.
 
My Opinion:
 
Not only do I love Michael W Smith's music but now I'm also a fan of his writing.  This book is a simple book about the power of prayer.  It can transform your life if you just open up and let prayer in.  I loved with Smith had to say, it's actually a great refresher for what I was taught as a child that was just learning to pray.  This would also make a wonderful gift for a new Christian or even someone that has been strong and steadfast in their faith for a long time.
