The Battle Plan for Prayer by Stephen and Alex Kendrick {Book Review}

Hey guys! I'm back with my next book review! :D 

~Book Description~    Prayer can accomplish what God can accomplish.    Inspired by the Kendrick Brothers' movie War Room, this exciting resource from the #1 best-selling team behind The Love Dare and The Resolution for Men is designed to help anyone – of any age – become a powerful person of prayer.    Including scriptural examples and personal testimonies, The Battle Plan of Prayer explains the fundamentals of how effective prayer works, inspires the readers toward a closer relationship with God, and shows them how to develop specific prayer strategies for life.    Prayer should become your first plan of attack in all of life's battles, not your last resort. If you want to walk in greater victory while enjoying mightily answered prayer on a regular basis, it's time to engage with God at a deeper level. Then you can discover firsthand that nothing is beyond His reach, and that knowing Him is the greatest reward of all.

For Us // An Easter Haiku

If you follow my other blog, Stories by Firefly, you may've read some of my feeble attempts at writing poetry. There usually quite bad and, because I can never make the lines rhyme, they're usually written in haiku (a form of Japanese poetry).

For Us  by Firefly 
Today is Easter.  What does this day mean to us?  Folks around the world. 
What's it symbolize?  How do we recognize it?  This year, again next. 
It's not about bunnies,  Or fancy dresses and shoes,  Pastel colored eggs. 
It's about Jesus,  His death and resurrection,  The high price He paid. 
Just for us He died.  For us He was crucified.  For us He suffered. 
Took death for our sins By His blood we're forgiven – Blood He freely gave. 
But it didn't stop there.  The timeless story goes on.  A…

// From My Heart //

'Ello readers! :) Remember what I said about being better to post here? Yeah, well, it didn't happen in the past couple weeks, did it? That's going to change, because the first Sisters in Christ chat is going up soon. ^_^ 
  How are you on this blessed Good Friday? Today is the day we remember the sacrifice Jesus made, the suffering He went through, to pay the ultimate price so we could be freed from the enslaving bondage of our sins. Isn't that something worthy of celebration?! :) I'm hopefully going to have an Easter poem posted here on Sunday. If that doesn't work out, there will still be some sort of Easter post. :-) 
  Now...on with this post!!! :D 

  This are somethings that have been on my heart a lot the last week and I've decided to share this with y'all. I've throught about it, I've prayed about it, and now I'm writing out my thoughts in this post. (And you all are getting stuck reading it. LOL. xD)
