Are You Ready For Change?
Read. Reminisce. Receive. Restore.

Ever dated someone and felt the need to take drastic measures to preserve your feelings? 

Yeah, me too!  You want to give more of you, show more of yourself, and open up a little more.  But, you’re afraid!  You’re afraid that something so sweet could become so bitter.  So you caution yourself…  See, the beauty in Robot Love is it doesn’t have to end!  So, take your time and be mindful of your emotions.  But, keep in mind that, it’s OK for one Robot to love, and miss another.

Have you ever received a call from someone and felt the need to go into IMMEDIATE Prayer?

You think, “Lord, should I answer this call?”  Sometimes, you have to push the call-end button.  Quite frankly, I find myself doing it more often.  It’s not because I don’t want to be of service, but it’s hard to help someone who becomes rebellious against assistance.  So, help if you can.  But, know that it’s OK to let him/her go so you can grow.

Remember when you were a kid and had imaginary talks with yourself about growing up?

Yeah me too!  I can still hear my mother saying, “You better stay a child as long as you can.”  Momma told me there would be days when I wish I were still a kid.  And you know what?  “She ain’t ever lied!”  Despite my age, I still need her help.  I never anticipated facing so many challenges as an adult.  From me to you…Just be careful with what you wish.

The Love Below is an empowering, self-help guide for overcoming life-changing situations. This book will also provide practical tools to help reflect on the past by offering essential steps to move toward a healthy future.  Shereese Battle is a certified and credentialed Life Coach, Spiritual Advisor, and Therapist.  Shereese is publisher of Robot Love HeartWrites Publishing (www.robotloveheartwrites.com).

PUYB Inside the Book

 

Rounded Oath

A mysterious race of North American giants. An ancient Hebrew inscription in a Cherokee burial mound. A blood oath made by blindfolded Freemasons. Are these three historical oddities the reason the CIA is trying to brainwash historian Cameron Thorne and his fiancée Amanda Spencer-Gunn? The answer lies buried in the legends of the Knights Templar, within the rituals of the secretive Freemasons and, most significantly of all, inside the bowels of the Smithsonian Institution. The problem for Cam and Amanda? If they go rummaging around the Smithsonian, they may find themselves buried alongside the ancient giants.

Proof of Angels By Mary Curran Hackett Book Review

four-stars

Title:  Proof of AngelsProof of Angels by Mary Curran Hackett

Author:  Mary Curran Hackett

Publisher:  Wm Morrow

Release Date:  November 4, 2014

Pages:  320

Genre:  Contemporary Fiction

About the Book:

From the critically acclaimed author of Proof of Heaven comes an unforgettable novel about hope, renewal, and the gift of angels among us—friends, family, lovers . . . and even mystical others—sure to touch your heart

Sean Magee is a firefighter—a hero who risks his own life to save others, running into dangerous situations few have the courage to dare. While fighting a horrific blaze, Sean becomes trapped by flames and is nearly overcome by smoke. Just when it seems that all is lost, he’s led to a window—by what he swears is divine intervention. And then he jumps . . .

. . . into a new life. For years, Sean has shut down his feelings, existing in a state of emotional numbness. Coming through that fire, he knows that he can no longer be that man whose his heart is closed to the world. But before he can face his future, he must confront his past and everyone in it: the family, the friends, the woman—and the love—he carelessly left behind.

Wanda’s Review:

Sean needed to know if what he saw on the day of the fire was real. He needed some proof. In the past Sean had done a lot of horrible things to people he loved because of his alcohol addiction. In many ways he felt broken. But Sean believes there are reasons for disconnected events and people in his life. He did not understand them, but he knew he had to trust that these miraculous events really did happen and for a reason.

The author’s writing is inviting and descriptive – an easy and relaxed read. The storyline takes us on a journey of discovery that brings the book to a satisfying, although rather predictable, conclusion. A delightful read! 4 stars.
