Headline for Book Review: It is in giving you shall receive, it can be your time, talents, money or almost anything.
Quote: “I’ve been carrying around some of God’s Money.”
This book was given in advanced by Multnomah Books for my honest review. I am a Christian whom loves to read about God or anything to do with Christianity so this was a fabulous and easy to read book. I loved this book most because it is like a “pay it forward.”
What Bruce explains is that we are partners with God and we should always have some spare change or dollars in a special pouch to be able to help others in need as you go about your day.
Take these steps for your God Pocket or pouch:
- Decided in advanced how much money you are going to place in it.
- Devote that money directly to God.
- Deposit the money into the Pocket.
- Depend on God to lead you to the person who needs it or needs “God Nudge.”
- Deliver God’s funds to the recipient.
- Declare that God is the Ultimate giver whom provided the funds.
- Disciple the person who receives the God Pocket to become a delivery agent themselves.
- Share your experiences as you have blessed others through this method.
- Recommend this book or buy a few to give away to help them “pay it forward.”
I think this is a marvelous way to share the gospel of God and to glorify God. I have donated money and given money to others in need myself, even when my funds were very low. I once gave away my last 20.00 and found out that the kid had no gas money and a wife and baby in his car. It is in giving that we receive. The blessings go beyond our natural inclinations.

Headline for Book Review: A User’s Guide to Living your Meaningful Life
About the Author: Seth Chernoff is a cancer survivor, author, speaker, marketing professional and founder of multiple companies. He has been featured in mainstream media around the world.
Seth has a very inspirational book here as he has survived cancer more than one time. Quotes that I like to share are:
“Through hardship came strength, and as a result of pain I found joy. Through suffering came gratitude, and by letting go I found my path and purpose in life.”
“Don’t expect that someone else will step in to fulfill the purpose you neglect, the path your disregard. Life is far too short, and your life is far too important.”
What I love about his book is the chapter headings such as:
True Connection which then proceeds a quote, “A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it,” By George Moore. Then follows question such as;
• Do we ever really get to know another person?
• Do we ever take the time and effort required to understand ourselves?
• Are we able to let down our guard, our defenses, and our agenda to open our heart and truly connect with another?
We all need inspirational and motivation in areas of our lives that pertain to what we are currently going through so if you need a great “quick pick me up” just pick up this book. It is easy to read, and understand with practical examples. I would recommend this book for anyone in any age group other than children as it is meant to open our hearts and minds to the life we need to live in the present moment to seek out our true potential, purpose and a more satisfying relationships with others.
This book is the second book by Seth Book One is Reality, Book Three is coming soon and it will be Manual for living your life Purpose. Seth Guides us through a series of thought provoking questions to help us thin what we do and why we do it in order to help us life the life of our dreams.

Headline for Book Review: Law School to US Supreme Court of USA
Quote: “To my beautiful wife, Maryan, with thanks for keeping me healthy and happy.”
Five Chiefs is an extraordinary and historically significant look at the highest court in the United States.
Description: When Justice John Paul Stevens resigned in June of 2010, Justice Stevens was the third longest serving Justice in American history (1975-2010).
In Five Chiefs, Justice Stevens captures the inner workings of the Supreme Court through his personal experiences with the five Chief Justices which include:
- Fred Vinson,
- Earl Warren,
- Warren Burger,
- William Rehnquist,
- John Roberts.
He reminisces of being a law clerk during Fred Vinson’s tenure; a practicing lawyer for Earl Warren; a circuit judge and junior justice for Warren Burger; a contemporary colleague of William Rehnquist; and a colleague of current Chief Justice John Roberts. Along the way, he will discuss his views of some the most significant cases that have been decided by the Court from Fred Vinson, who became Chief Justice in 1946 when Truman was President, to Roberts, who became Chief Justice in 2005.
If you love history and law this is a wonderful reading of facts according to Justice John Paul Stevens.
