Book Reviews 


Let's Do Lunch by Roger Troy Wilson

I was excited to read this book as I had just started another diet.  I thought the timing was great!  The first thing that caught my eye was on the cover "eating all the Calories and carbs you want to lose weight.  It seemed too good to be true.  I loved reading about Mr. Wilson's success story.  About how it all started with frozen grapes.  But I was soon disappointed when the book got to the diet itself.  The majority of this diet consists of fruit.  Now I like fruit, but I do not want to eat it for 2 meals each day.  There is no bread in this diet, even though the cover says ALL the calories and carbs you want.  I want bread so obviously this statement needs to have an * next to it.

So, although I loved Mr. Wilson's story and admire his ability to lose a lot of weight and keep it off, the diet seems much too restrictive for me.

Winston Churchill - Christian Encounters Series by John Perry

This book is about the life and times of Winston Churchill.  It takes time to analyze his view of Christianity and how he followed God. 

I was excited to read this book because truthfully I did not know a lot about Winston Churchill.  The book followed his entire life.  The beginning was very interesting, but I must say I found myself losing focus about halfway through.  Once the book started covering the Nazi invasion and Churchill's rise to Prime Minister it started to get good again and I finished it in no time.  

The book covered both the good and bad of Churchill.  I was surprised to learn so many people thought negatively of him.  It was also interesting to learn more about how Churchill saw God and walked out his faith.

I would recommend this book to history buffs that don't know a lot bout Churchill as I learned a lot!

Kaleidoscope by Patsy Clairmont -

I had the pleasure of reading this book over the weekend.  I was excited to get started as I had attended a few Women of Faith events and thought Patsy was so funny and it was amazing to see how God could use her humor to touch lives.

Kaleidiscope - Seeing God's Wit and Wisdom In A Whole New Light - Is a joyful book to read.  In it, Patsy has chosen 30 Proverbs to share with the reader.  She breaks them down and shares her own stories along the way.  It amazed me that through her humor she was able to touch me profoundly.  There were so many life experiences that she had that I could relate to.  

Each chapter is about 4 pages long and has Bits and Pieces (questions to ponder) and Held to the Light (scriptures that relate to that particular chapter) at the end.  I really enjoyed these wrap ups.  

My favorite chapter was chapter 21 Loose Lips - Proverbs 16:23.  In it she talks about wanting to share anything new she learns, can't we all relate?  But she also has a list of "eclectic things that I'm still learning" and asks the reader to read them and ask yourself "Is this true".    My favorite from the list was "We are our finest selves when we function in our God-given gifts".  I even shared this with my 13 year old daughter.  

I would highly recommend this book to any women that is touched by God or looking to be touched and enjoys a good sense of humor!
