Spiritual Warfare Revelations and Strategies to Defeat Them

In her book “The Spiritual Warrior’s Guide to Defeating Water Spirits” Jennifer Leclaire introduces the reader how to recognize and overcome the squeezing stronghold of the Python, detect the lies of the Leviathan, over the spirit of Rahab, and to unleash the power of the Holy Spirit to gain victory to overcome the spiritual forces of water spirits.

The impact of these spirits is prevalent in business today as seen through “the love of money,” in the entertainment industry through an exaggerated emphasis on graphic violence, sexual immorality, an ideology that impacts our families and homes and introduces false gods into church rites and religious teaching.

Step by step Jennifer provides the reader with guidelines to “overcoming demons that twist, suffocate and attack God’s purposes for your life.

Jennifer’s writes with clarity has done extensive research that is well documented, and she is convincing in her approach.

“The Spiritual Warrior’s Guide to Defeating Water Spirits” is an important study for today’s culture.

Brain Storm – An Electrifying Journey By Kate Recore – A Book Review

Reviewed by Richard R. Blake

Informative, Inspirational, Moving and Challenging

Kate Recore introduces the reader to her world – an unknown stormy journey of night seizures, stress, anxiety, physicians, specialists, and diagnosis errors. Hers is a story of “new norms,” setbacks, and forward leaps.

Kate’s writing is superb – every detail adds to the suspense, empathy, and the experience of vicariously living through the nightmares, seizures, memory lapses, and another misdiagnosis.

“Brain Storm – An Electrifying Journey” is heartwarming, inspirational, and informative, calling for involvement in a crusade bringing to the fore the myths of Epilepsy: encouraging others to tell of their struggles with the disease, and to spread awareness and understanding of the “Brian Storm” of Epilepsy.

Personal experiences, family challenges, and an eighteen-year journey with my wife’s Alzheimer’s disease help me to identify with Kate’s struggles and victories. I can emphasize with the victims of epilepsy, their families, and friends. I can highly recommend Kate Recore’s book “Brain Storm.”

In Pursuit of Health and Longevity – Wellness Pioneers through the Centuries, By Cal Samra – A Book Review

Health, Physical Fitness, Longevity, Wellness

I am so fortunate to have Cal Samra’s book “In Pursuit of Health and Longevity” come to my attention at this time. I have recently been establishing personal goals in regards to developing a healthier lifestyle, including; physical fitness, health and wellness, mental alertness, and an exemplary contagious faith.

Sal gleans from the wisdom of “Wellness Pioneers through the Centuries” to reveal a commonality among theological and philosophical traditions. Fast moving, poignant stories, pertinent illustrations, hilarious quips, and thought-provoking quotes fill the pages of the book.

From the Hebrew prophet Daniel to the centuries of Jesus and the apostles, the unmercenary Greek physicians Cosmos and Damian M. D.s of the third century, and historical health pioneers. He also explores the philosophies of more contemporary religious leaders of all faiths, health professionals, counselors, philosophers, professional athletes, dieticians, and nutritionists.

Cal Samra is known for his work as lay executive director of the Huxley Institute for Biosocial Research as well as editor of the “Joyful Noise Letters,” a publication providing jokes and anecdotes to pastors to use in their sermons or church publications to introduce light-hearted humor emphasizing the healing power of laughter. This same humor carries throughout “In Pursuit of Health and Longevity.”

As I read a few pages, I pondered the implications and applications for pursuing a healthy lifestyle. In another few pages, I laughed from the depth of my belly. The mood changed again – tears flowed, followed by a sense of gratefulness.

“In Pursuit of Health and Longevity – Wellness Pioneers through the Centuries” is a must-read for individuals concerned with health, nutrition, and fitness as well as personal trainers, pastors, and physicians.
