Max on Life by Max Lucado

Questions about life?  Everyone has them.  Sometimes we are even afraid to ask them.  Max Lucado, in his new book, is definitely not afraid to take on some of these most difficult questions.  He tackles questions in just about every area of life.  With topics that cover everything from "Why am I here?" to "How do I deal with this grief?", Max Lucado gives an insightful easy to understand Christian perspective.  In short, usually page long responses, Max Lucado answers 172 thought provoking questions.  There is a handy topical index included that would give the reader an easy way to locate answers to specific problems.

I enjoyed reading this new book by Max Lucado.  It challenged me to think about some of the hard questions that I have experienced, and helped me get new perspective to the problems facing people around me.  The question and answer format seemed a little strange to begin with and I was concerned about how I would locate a specific question if I wanted to reference it in the future.  The topical index in the back eliminates that concern.   The numbered question and answer format would really work well for a devotional type reading with one question covered a day.

I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars.  I would recommend this book to anyone searching for Christian answers to life's questions.  I am thinking this book would make a great gift for the graduates in my life.

Fabulous Friday Finds

I had no idea that you could download a kindle app for your ipod touch for free!  But you can.  And its easy to do from itunes.

Amazon also has a lot of really cool e-books that are free as well.  Numerous classics are free choices.  I downloaded a great book on contentment by Linda Dillow that even contains a 12 week bible study in the back.

A free application so you can read kindle ebooks on your PC is also available. Thanks for the info!!!

Plans and Priorities

Sometimes the best laid plans don't match up with the really important priorities.  Maybe that is just the way it is going to be.  I can have everything thought out and organized and then another child is up in the night with a stomach virus and all those plans go down the toilet, literally.

I need to keep my priorities straight in my mind and try to not be so discourged when things don't go the way I had them all planned out.  God knows what is best for my family, now I need to keep remembering that.  I need to embrace Him and echo His spirit in my life.  My children are a gift.  Caring for them during this season is a blessing and, I am choosing contentment as I go about my day today.
