Title: Demon Portals: 
A Psychic Medium’s Path to Deliverance
By: Timna Pilch
A CBM Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
Demon Portals: A Psychic Medium’s Path to Deliverance by Timna Pilch reveals the dangers of dabbling in the paranormal, psychic divination, and occult practices. As one who practiced divination, and had a wide-range of experience as a Psychic Medium, the paranormal, demons, visitations and hauntings, this book is an eye-opener.  Her knowledge in occultic practices will surprise many and leave many who read it in awe of the deception and ways that demonic entities infiltrate our lives. Her main purpose in writing this book is to shed light into God’sTruth from The Holy Bible of the absolute dangers and warnings that God gives to those who would continue to dabble in paganism and occultic practices. Revealing just how dangerous this is, her story unveils the supernatural realm, patterns of demons, and the reality of good versus evil that clears the confusion about the paranormal, ghosts, spirits, hauntings, demon possession and entanglement, that offers to readers hope in a future with Christ while simultaneously offering a keen understanding of the invisible world and the battle for our souls.
.
Beginning with an overview of her childhood, she starts with her birth. Seemingly born with a deep intuition and empathic abilities, her childhood reveals much suffering and trauma that only compounded her emotional state, also being surrounded by demonic entities from birth, that took her down a dark path in life. Explaining her gifts, as what she calls prescience and being an empath, also gave her a unique insight of the supernatural realm, in which most do not experience. Her experiences, pictures and choices only reveal a deeper understanding to readers of the deception and influence the demonic realm has upon our lives, thoughts and spirits through various means.
.
Her true story is fascinating and her book helps those who are deceived to find truth in the God’s Ways, His Word and the salvation and grace offered to them with a new life in Christ. Additionally, as a Vegan, her book offers further insight into the character of animals, their suffering and advocates “non-consumption” of animal meat and by-products, such as milk and cheese. Christians will be intrigued and find much Biblical foundation and insight into the demonic realm that will give them a better understanding of demons, and for those who are dabbling in witchcraft and the occult, they will understand that they are literally “opening up” demonic portals into their life. Her book gives advice on the only way to get free – Repentance, Redemption, water baptism, prayer and living God’s way of life.

What a wonderful read filled with hope with a future in Christ and His Truth! ~ Demon Portals: A Psychic Medium's Path to Deliverance at Amazon

Title: Responsive Readings for the Modern Church
By: David Rhodes
ISBN#978-1-4566-2661-7
A CBM Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
Responsive Readings for the Modern Church by David Rhodes is: “A study in the relationships between Bible scriptures in a responsive reading format for use in corporate worship or personal study.” Using key words, this study is similar to a concordance, wherein a person can look up scriptures references. Gleaning from subjects pertinent to each book, the author has selected verses that impact faith, belief, and daily living that give a wide-range of subjects from such books such as: Psalms and Proverbs, with over a thousand footnotes that add to the versatility, incorporating the Old and New Testament books. This book fosters a time for study and meditation in God’s Word that will increase faith and nourishes the soul with the premise that God’s Word is alive and active.
.
To use this book, readers can simply look up a subject that interests them or perhaps a word like hope. Designed for reflective reading, this is an easy and vital way to study scripture verses that instill hope, encouragement and helps anchor the soul through Jesus Christ and the Word. In the eBook format readers are able to click directly on the footnotes link which will lead them to the WEB (World English Version) online for further study.
.
Such subjects as: angel, anger, apostle, believe, born, children, chosen, create, David, eternal, faith, forgive, free, God, great, Heaven, holy, hope, Jacob, Jesus, Joseph, joy, Kingdom, laugh, light, Lord, love, majesty, mercy, nothing, peace, power, pray, righteous, sacrifice, salvation, silence, sin, spirit, thanks, water, wisdom, word, work, worship, evil, fool, gold, good, man, the righteous and the  wicked, and so much more, provide a wide spectrum of the scripture verses that speak of Christian values, morals, choosing life and implores readers to live by the Word. As humans, we tend to forget- this book is a good reminder of God’s wisdom that is written onto the tablets of our hearts.
.
Developed for corporate study or personal reflection, this book is a quick way to ingest the Word and memorize scripture verses to be encouraged and inspired through the Word of God.

The Splitting of the Adam:
It’s Time to Awaken

Don Felumlee
.

More than any inspired sermon or theologically correct teaching, there's but one, prevailing message which clearly emanates throughout the entirety of the scriptures: Our loving, Heavenly Father is desperately yearning to touch his broken and fallen creation!

.

Before this can happen, however, from the chosen mouthpiece of a prophetic, firstfruits company, there must first and foremost resound an eye-opening message of earth-shaking significance, for the somber, sleeping church--which he shall ultimately work through--must first be awakened into the image of God! A splitting of the Adam must eventually take place within the ever-longing hearts of his beloved children! Yes indeed, my friend, a splitting of the Adam must inevitably take place within you!
.

Join us now, if you dare, beloved, as author and teacher Don Felumlee proclaims a fresh, divine perspective of the coming of the Lord!

Title: The Unexpected Visitation
By: Stephen M. Grimble
ISBN#9781498489430
A CBM Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
The Unexpected Visitation by Stephen M. Grimble presents to readers an intriguing Christian fiction novel told from a Catholic viewpoint. Christmas Eve, 2032, meet Isabella. Surviving a horrific car crash where her husband, son and unborn child are all killed, this novel speaks the hope of the Gospel through an unbelievable tragedy. Bella, tenaciously choosing faith, this book draws readers into Bella’s world, as she receives an assignment from an unexpected visitation. She meets Jesus, face-to-face as He returns, visiting her church. Called to follow Him, become an apostle, and write the basic tenants of the Christian faith in a 12-step summarization, the author takes readers on a fascinating journey into faith and the Good News of the Gospel.
.
Set in a world of skepticism, sin and faithlessness, the author asks the question: “If Christ came again, would you believe or would you doubt or deny Him, as did so many people two millennia ago?” His book is written for believers and non-believers alike, and presents an adventure, a journey of faith into the heart of the Gospel of Christ, Jesus, the Son of God, His teachings and His status as the only One True God, prodding those who would not believe, and inviting all into taking a look into who Jesus is. Also, shedding light on lukewarm Christianity, giving faith a chance to flourish, as Bella brings revival, miracles at the direction of Jesus to 6 countries around the world.
.
This is a highly recommended Christian fiction novel craftily written that will help those who believe in Christ, yearn for apostleship, signs and wonders and for those who do not believe, a revival and miraculous awakening may occur.

Hamilton Saves the Fourth of July 
(The Jenny Adventures Series 3)
By: Tawney Anderson
A CBM Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
Hamilton Saves the Fourth of July by Tawney Anderson shares the adventures of Jenny and farm life, making a fun read for children (and adults alike), bringing animals, nature and humans together – As the third book of the series of The Jenny Adventures, Jenny lives on the farm with her parents, and a cast of unforgettable farm animals. Jenny has a unique bond with these animals as they have saved her family on many occasions and vice versa. It’s almost the 4th of July and Jenny wants to help the animals understand why we have the 4th of July, and that even though the fireworks scare the animals because they are so loud, she explains from a book how the United States came to be. This story will keep children (and adults) captivated by the funny antics of the animals, the cast of characters around the farm, and the fun, adventure and trials along the way, as they discover a little hummingbird named Hamilton who saves the day!
.
Fun animal facts add to this funny, inspiring and heart-warming children’s book. This is one book you will want to keep in your library for generations to come. Entertaining and witty, the author teaches our little ones the importance of Christian values, adding to the book an inspiration to be all that God has called them to be. With colorful artwork, children learn to thank God and to pray to God, they learn a little about the Indians, the 13 colonies, the British and the Revolutionary War, in a simple way.
.
Pick up her first 2 books in the series to get a better understanding of all that Jenny and the farm animals have been through ~ A Nativity Christmas and The Easter Miracle.
.
This is a fun and instructive way to teach our children why we celebrate the Fourth of July, the importance of kindness to animals and to care for their environment, and that they too play an important part in our world today!
.
Highly Recommended!

Title: Shepherd’s Inn: The Gift
By: Dave Stokley
CBM Book Reviews
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.

Shepherd’s Inn: The Gift, by Dave Stokley, writes an engaging and inspiring novel during time leading up to the Christmas season at Shepherd’s Inn. Set in modern times, the author sheds light on humanity’s trials and crisis, purpose and God with the bringing together of different individuals to Shepherd’s Inn.
.

This lodge is a special place. It is a place where others find healing from the past. The author brings to life such characters that have common bonds of life-changing events that have shaped their past - betrayal, domestic violence, sickness, and death. Beginning with several characters from a narrative, the relevance of Shepherd’s Inn and how it came to be reveals this special place and those who run it. Common bonds develop over the years at Shepherd’s Inn that mend the characters together with interesting twists and turns, revealing that we all have a story.
.
Each character adds flavor to the telling of Shepherd’s Inn, drawing readers into a climatic conclusion at the Inn. These connections, events and lives, all intertwining, make for an experience that express a common theme – we all have challenges. With God and caring friendships we can move into our future, away from what has kept us bound. With hints of romance and humor, the book relates the importance of community and human kindness – as paying it forward and belonging helps readers to understand the need for God, the Father and the Son, Jesus Christ.

.

Offering a satisfying conclusion, the author has written a heart-warming and emotional read that shares God’s grace, love, hope, kindness, forgiveness, and emotional healing that brings the light of God’s love into the forefront.
.
I find this book one that brings peace, hope and serenity to the soul as it relates to the gift; it’s a message that we all need. ~ An amazing and highly recommended read!
.
You may get your copy of Shepherd’s Inn: The Gift at Amazon and in Kindle.

Title: Just a Plain Poor Simple Shepherd
By: Rozlah Ridenoure
ISBN#9781498487986
A CBM Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
Just a Plain Poor Simple Shepherd by Rozlah Ridenoure depicts Jesus as the Great Shepherd surrounded by the telling of His birth and the angels’ announcement that: “Unto them a King is born.” This children’s book speaks great things, one of glory, one of magnificence, one of angels in the highest, when the Father sent His son to Earth. Beautifully illustrated, the author captures the essence of that day, the culture, and focuses on the shepherds in the field who saw such an awesome sight.
.
Overcome in awe, they found the Son, the Son of Man, born to Mary and Joseph in a manger – Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. From the star above, Bethlehem shone in God’s brightness as the One True Shepherd, Jesus, as the True Shepherd of the flock. Sharing the stance, “I’m just a poor plain shepherd but I know my soul the Lord doth keep,” these Shepherds delight in the truth of the birth of Christ.
.
This children’s book is recommended to Christian parents and grandparents that would like to share the beauty of Christ in their homes through the telling of one of the most popular stories ever told! With discussion questions at the end, this book is also recommended for bringing salvation to those little ones that wonder who Jesus is. He is their Good Shepherd that keeps their souls.
.

A simple and highly recommended read to remember our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Perfect for a holiday gift this season. Get your copy of Just a Plain Poor Simple Shepherd at Amazon, in Kindle or at Barnes and Noble.

Title: In My Mind: A Faith Journey Through Rough Seas
By: Paul G. Tremewan
A CBM Book Review
10.0 stars out of 10.0 stars
.
In My Mind: A Faith Journey Through Rough Seas by Paul G. Tremewan is a touching collection of poems, short stories of his teaching experiences and prayers that he wrote from his sickbed, as he suffered the devastating effects of terminal ALS. ALS is called Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis also as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease” – a progressive degenerative diseases affecting the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. 
.
Written from a place of weakness during the last two years of his life, Paul G. Tremewan reflects on life, and gives readers hope and insight through his many prayers, poems and his good sense of humor. . .
.
Readers will get to know Paul through testimony from his son, but mostly from his writings. Consumed with ALS, all he could do was write – and write he did! The prayers are deeply moving – there will be something each reader will take away from the prayers, as he struggles to cope with his disease, never giving up. His encouraging demeanor comes through in his humorous reflection on his many years as a teacher in a junior high school. Some of his stories give insight into his caring compassionate side, as he protected and invested in students that came his way.
.
Inspiring, this book helps others to count their blessings in life and to be thankful. Coming from a dying man, all would be wise to heed his advice, which was to focus on the present, and that is all we can do. We don’t know the future and the past is gone. Inevitably readers will be touched in small and big ways through his openness, genuineness, caring and fun-loving personality. Those who are suffering will find solace, as the reader directs them to look up to a God, our Father. 
.
His dream that he had in his last week on Earth was especially impactful, as Jesus, reassured the author that he would be taken care of. Reading this book is a blessing and inspires all to never give up, knowing that we all are in God’s good hands despite our circumstances.
.
*Additionally, his widow’s “Epilogue” encourages all to look how to be a blessing to others. Truly, a great word to live by!
.
Thank you, Paul G. Tremewan, for leaving us your legacy, stories and inspiring faith.

Title: Glory Story
By: Keisha McGeachy
A CBM Book Review
9.9 out of 10.0 stars
.
Glory Story by Keisha McGeachy is a short book (38 pages) of inspirational poems that offer readers  wisdom, insight and deep reflections upon life, the glory and triumphs, the sorrow and the pain, coupled with “selah” moments in beauty of nature and creation, in family –  giving Glory of God as her title denotes.
.
Culminated from her daily and life experiences, her book is real, honest, and touching. Considering some of the most complex subjects, readers will get a glimpse into some facets of inner emotional life and thoughts that they can glean from and learn from.  She relates to all. that we all have something in common – whether it be in relationships, being “a Daddy’s girl” or relating to Heaven above, we all share our humanness together. She also relates her views upon the world and materialism that present thought provoking attitudes about life, the pursuit of the “American Dream,  death, poverty and living in the present.  Her poem of the butterfly (along with others) captures the imagination with a beautiful description of the graceful butterfly, as do many others that encourage and inspire to rise above circumstances and to look to God.
.
Impactful and powerful, the author has also intertwined scriptural truths from Scripture and the book of Proverbs that relate all walks of life a reverence to God, life and liberty that peace in Jesus offers.
.
This is a wonderful book reflecting one woman’s life experiences and reflections given to God and His Glory, that also recount  the value of inspired Scripture and a life in God to bring beauty, remembrance and gratitude to the forefront.
.

Receive: The Steps of the Prayer of Faith
By Margie Fleurant
.
As children of God, we are made to receive. God our loving Father wants to give us all we need even more than we want to receive it. If that were not true, He would not have sent Jesus to die on the cross and free us from the curse.
.
Yet for many of us, it is not how we have experienced life. We have had needs go unmet, prayers go unanswered, desires go unfulfilled. And in our hearts we wonder, Why didn't it work for me? What went wrong?
 .
Often, the answer to this question eludes us. We do not always know why certain things do or do not happen. In this book, we will examine the prayer of faith and the steps involved in receiving what we ask for.
.
Order your copy of Receive The Steps of the Prayer of Faith or as a download in Kindle. You can find other books by Margie Fleurant at Margie Fleurant's Amazon page.
