Interview With the Antichrist by Jeff Kinley Book Review

 The Antichrist! We have heard that name echo through the annals of history every single time we see someone rise to power that condones evil in the name of good. From Stalin to Hitler and everyone before and after, the antichrist spirit prevails in men like that, but there is one coming who will make all their actions mere child's play to the evil awaiting the coming world. 

In the book, Interview with the Antichrist by Jeff Kinney, he pairs what the Bible shares into a fictional story with a possible prophetic look at what could be coming on the world in  rapidly, unfolding chilling events we see playing across our globe even now. 

Up and coming new journalist, Julian De Clercq is looking for that breakout story to make him a national headliner. Since the recent disappearance of millions of people all over the globe, the world is spiraling out of control with no apparent confirmed reason where they all went. Some believe that aliens took them, others believe a virus or medical reason may have caused people to simply vanish overnight. Still others believe what the Bible has always said would happen, the Rapture of the believers in Christ. 

The world is screaming for order, peace and leadership and finally someone shows up and begins to systematically restrain the defaults on the worlds banking system, curbs the growing violence and rioting all over the globe, and once and for all restores the temple grounds back to the Jewish people so they can rebuilding the Temple in their land. But does this person truly have the worlds best interests at heart or is he merely a person with his own agenda to ultimately control the world? 

I purchased Interview with the Antichrist to once again remind myself and others what awaits us in the not so distant future of our world. With global pandemics, to the banking and financial crisis looming in every corner of the globe, to the threat of a nuclear war and possible world war 3. The world is looking for some way to regain a sense of peace but is that even possible any longer? What I love is the way Jeff overlaps biblical truths in a fictional story that portrays what the future may look like. Call it the white spaces between the pages of the Bible and you have an unforgettable and daunting look at our future. I easily give this a 5 out of 5 stars and even fans of the Left Behind series will love this new look at a possible world event. One thing that I love, is the 30 questions at the conclusion of this book that shows where in the Bible all of this is found. A chilling reminder that the clock is ticking and the future is almost here.

Lawn Darts and Lemonade by Steven Manchester

Country Time Lemonade, Bomb Pops and ice cream trucks, Magic 8 balls and Blockbuster Video stores. What 80's kid doesn't have a fond memory of enjoying those during summer vacations from school? If you are looking for a great summer book, I highly recommend Lawn Darts and Lemonade from Steven Manchester! 

This is the second book in his series and even if you haven't read the first one, Breadbags and Bullies, you can easily understand this one. However I would highly recommend you pick them both up and it will easily take you back to those 80's summers of bike riding, staying out til the street lights come on and trying to find something to do to occupy your summer days. 

I've been so blessed to have read everything he has written and once again this was a book, that when I picked it up, I was not able to put it down. I had to know how it would end. Once again readers are taken back to the 1980's with three brothers, Wally, Herbie and Cockroach, who at the opening of the book are dealing with the loss of their father. As the family begins sharing those favorite and special moments, the brothers are transported back to those times where they are transported back to their Summer of 1984. 

There are so many great references in this book, from the video game arcades at the mall, to those summer jobs which would enable us to get candy and sodas at the local corner store. Mom stayed home and of course, made sure the boys were outside all day until the street lights came on where the family would once more gather around the dinner table to share their adventures, while Dad gave the boys all that fatherly wisdom that only dads could dispense along with classic one liners known as Dadisms! 

I would highly recommend this book as the perfect Summer read and easily give this one a 5 out of 5 stars! Anyone who has ever lived in the 80's will LOVE this book. I received this book from Steven Manchester for my honest review and received no paid compensation to offer a favorable review.

Dad by Steven Manchester


There is no greater need in anyone's life like that of a Father. Whether it's in the role of a grandfather, dad or simply a future dad in the making, there is a sense of leadership and authority that comes when you think of a man in that role. A nurturing. A legacy in the making. A protector. The head of the household. 

I've been so blessed to have had the unique opportunity to be asked once again to review the latest book from best selling author, Steven Manchester. The one thing I always know even before I know what the book is about, is that it will be life changing. It will cause me to reflect on things in my own life and make comparisons from what I am reading to what I know to be true in my own life. I also know that it will never disappoint and undoubtedly be a great book. One that I will probably recommend to someone looking for a great book too! 

I also have learned whenever anyone reads a book review before deciding if this is one they should review, I won't give it all away but simply convey my own personal thoughts on this book. So if you have read the review, thus far, I can save you the time of reading any further. Read the book. Buy the Book. Yes, it is that great! 

I've been a book reader for as long as I can remember back to my childhood and love the way a book can transform your life and give you a reprieve from where you are at in your life. A virtual vacation if you will. A way to get lost between the pages and delve into a storyline that will make you lose track of time. One you won't want to put down, unless you have to, but also one that will call you back to the pages to pick back up where you left off and finish the book. This IS that book. 

Just by the title alone, you will know it will involve a dad, but in this book it takes us into the lives of three generations of men from the same family, who are at different chapters in their own personal lives. Struggling in ways we can't begin to understand unless we have been there ourselves or in this case, read about Robert, the patriarch of the family, who is dealing with the fact he is getting old and time is running thin. We walk through the life of Oliver, who has the relationship I believe most adult children might have with their dads. As long as things are going well, they don't talk about what is going on in their lives. Oliver is struggling with his marriage, and he understands that things go through phases, he doesn't want to lose his wife. However as the book opens we find him working with a therapist to help him work through things. His own son Jonah at 19 is on the brink of leaving behind his childhood and about to face the pressures of what being adult is about to bring. 

For me, I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, as a woman, we don't often glean what men think and this book gives me the insight to see what all three men are thinking and going through. How that plays out in the roles they are walking through and also how their lives intersect. It's not seamless, and there is a struggle each one faces as they move through those phases. It must be a heavy weight men bear on their shoulders as the world far too often doesn't understand the burden they must carry. It has made me look at the life of my own father, husband and brother in my life, with new clarity. I understand what they face and also what they may need but never ask for. It's something I hope I can change while I might still have time. This novel has given me new perspective and once again, I am so glad I had the opportunity to read this novel and can highly give it a 5 out of 5 stars, in my opinion. I was not paid for my review and this is solely based on my own insight on what I take away from the book, without giving it all away to the reader. Trust me, it's worth the read.

Fear is Not the Boss of You



 I was looking for a faith based business coach for the longest time, who would not leave Faith at the door when it came to business. Then I found Jennifer Allwood. I can't even remember how I found her but her coaching for my business was a huge lifeline for me. I knew when she announced she was writing a book, it would be a great one.

Then CoVid hit and the world was thrown off its axis. Who knew that God would use this time to launch, Fear is Not the Boss of You? I mean who wouldn't want to grab this book in the midst of uncertainty. Like so many other women, I found her words in this book to be healing. Coming from a generation where my parents divorced early on, I had to face to many uphill battles alone. Even now in my own business, I have let the fears of the unknown drive some of my own insecurities and make me question certain decisions. 

I knew I had to break free from the fear that puts faith on the back burner. I needed words from a great friend who has walked those valleys to help me reach the mountaintop together with God. What a breath of fresh air this book has been for me. Jennifer is our modern day Esther. She was placed in our lives for a time such as this. To help us to break free from our fears, our thoughts, how we were raised, that all influence how we react to any situation we may face in life. 

It won't mean that I won't be afraid when I make my appointment with a dermatologist to face what I believe is skin cancer. My own father constantly reminded me that every imperfection I had was cancer, from simple breakouts to allergic reactions and those have caused me to fear going to the doctor for fear of being told I was going to have cancer. Jennifer's words of wisdom are like a balm to a hurting and wounded soul. I have since picked up several copies of this book to give to my daughters because I know at some point in their life, fear will try to steal their faith that they can do whatever they want. I want them to have that same voice telling them it's okay to still do it scared, but just do it. 

I highly recommend, Fear is Not The Boss of You by Jennifer Allwood and have received no compensation for a positive review for this book. I truly believe that healing lies beneath the cover for those that simply can't move forward in whatever aspect of your life because of fear and I am confident that you will find the courage to challenge those very fears head on. I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars. This is a must read for every woman!

The Menu - Book Review

If you had a chance at doing your life over again, just one part you wanted to go back and change, would you?

What if you simply wanted to find that soul mate? True Love? Deeper Faith? Wisdom to make different choices? Most of us, don't understand those questions, because in our minds, we still have time left to make those choices. It's not til we get to our death bed, that those questions would be answered with deep conviction and certainty. Yet what would you give up to have those do overs?

In his latest book, The Menu, author Steven Manchester invokes a sense of searching our hearts and questions how we have lived our lives to this point. Through the character Phinn Reed, who sits in heaven with the possibility of choosing from a list of life desires, to get a second chance at something he never had. A menu of possibilities but also the cost you will need to endure to gain that life. Once a choice is made, all memories of heaven and your past is completely erased.

"This is your life. Order whatever you wish, but keep in mind - whatever you choose to taste, you have to finish," He told Phinn before sending him into the world. God reminds Phinn that he will encounter others that have also chosen changes, and he is likely to encounter them during his time on earth. God also reminds Phinn that with each choice, a price must be paid to obtain it. If you choose compassion, you can have it but not before experiencing pain and suffering. You can have commitment and wisdom, but not before conquering trials and tribulations. Courage after overcoming fear, honor after facing shame, success after much failure."

I absolutely LOVED this direction that this author took with a concept of second chances, because its not a simple Happily Ever After novel. There is a payment to acquire that which we all seek and while most of us just want the menu item, we don't want the price necessary to achieve that even in our lives today. We all want the results, but not what it took to get there. This makes us re-evaluate our lives a bit and take into account what we not only achieved but what we had to pay to get it.

I would highly recommend The Menu by Steven Manchester, and I received a complimentary copy from the author for my honest review of this novel. I have to say this is a really great read and I think there is some wisdom to be gleaned through this fictional novel. As a believer, you can appreciate the ideas behind this fictional book, with understanding it is fiction novel with a point. I would easily give this a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
