Let's Do Lunch by Roger Troy Wilson

Hi, my name is Tina and I am a recovering diet addict. My first official one started in the 8th grade and all the fat ladies at Weight Watchers told me how much they wish they could have done this at my age. The addiction went downhill from there. Even though I could see that manipulating food could produce weight loss, I bought in hook line and sinker. I came to the proper conclusion when confronted with scripture on the subject. This is a book review, so enough of the confessions and on to my latest read “Let’s Do Lunch” by Roger Troy Wilson.



Wilson weighed in excess of 400 pounds and discovered a way to eat as much as he wants and loose weight. That eating plan is laid out in “Let’s Do Lunch.” The majority of the book is Wilson’s personal story of loss and gain, as well as recipes that adhere to the “Let’s Do Lunch” eating plan. Chapters 2-6 are the plan itself and the reader is encouraged time and again to read those four chapters three times.
This book is easy to read and the eating plan is simple enough to follow. It is almost impossible to gain weight with the plan that laid out in the book, even though you can pig out at every meal. There are testimonies about weight loss through out the book from people who have had great success with the “Let’s Do Lunch” eating plan.
The plan is a very fluid, making it easy and almost too vague at the same time. The Fourteen Day Meal Guide in Chapter 7 is almost worthless with its constant repetition and prolific use of “Bill’s Mashed Potatoes” which are used at least once a day for eleven of the fourteen days.
Overall, it is another diet, which almost tempted me, but in the end, God won out.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

Four Cups by Chris Hodges

Four Cups by Chris Hodges is a brief book based on the four cups associated with the Seder Meal. Within the Seder meal, four promises of God are celebrated. Hodges goes through the four promises and challenges the reader to live them out.

Those four promises are:
1. God will free you from oppression.
2.God will free you from slavery.
3. God will redeem you.
4. God claims you and wants to celebrate that.

My favorite was the last promise. I think that it's very rare that we get together with other Christians to celebrate the fact that we belong to God. We have plenty of parties, but often those are to mark events or the passing of time, but not often do we celebrate the fact that we get to hang out with the Holy Spirit.

Each chapter is short enough that it could be read aloud by a group and then followed with a simple prayer. It would make a nice book study for a group. Hodges also recommends using the four cups to help grow your faith community. And by growth, he means people movin…

Lent aka Spring Training

If you've been paying attention, you'll have noticed that there's less and less of me on social media. I started small with changing my password on my Facebook account so that I couldn't check it. And that quickly escalated to a downloading of my account and deletion. Like, never getting it back, it's gone, if you want one, you'll have to start over deletion. And then I just switched my time to checking my Instagram, which used to be in check until Facebook went away. And then lent started and I put all of my Instagram accounts on temporary disable. And they're probably going to stay that way until I get beyond the point of turning to my phone to see if it has anything for me in terms of entertainment and validation. Hopefully, that will be take about 40 days, give or take a few Sundays.

So, I'm hoping to use this lent period to get myself all prepped for what can be in my life. I really want to serve God with all my heart, my soul, my mind, and my body…

When Through Deep Waters by Rachelle Dekker

When Through Deep Waters is Rachelle Dekker's fourth book, the first three a dystopian trilogy. I was excited to see what other stories she had for us. Fortunately, this one does not disappoint.

Alicen has suffered a tragic loss and is trying to find her way through the grief. She lands in the family vacation home of her childhood friend. The idyllic location reminds her of all the hope she had for her life as a child and forces her to deal with many different disappointments in her life including the life and death of her beloved grandmother.

Here's what I love about the book, one, it's an old-school Frank Peretti style spiritual warfare book in that Alicen is an ordinary person that is struggling with spiritual forces. Two, it's a fiction book that made me want to get out my journal and explore some thoughts that bubbled up about myself! Third, God wins in the end and it doesn't look like the normal everyone desires. Fourth, straight up scripture usage that does…
