Am I Enough?: Embracing the Truth About Who You Are By Grace Valentine ISBN: 978-0785216179

Am I Enough? by Grace Valentine is a book of encouragement for those of us feeling like we are never enough. Grace is a young, single woman and her book is primarily aimed at younger women. However, we older gals can learn a thing or two from this young lady.

Where Grace has been, we have been and maybe still are, feeling like we are not and can never be enough, as judged by the human eyes and hearts in this world.

Grace encourages us to see ourselves as Heavenly Father sees us, beautifully made in His image. He made us and He doesn’t make junk. We are each beautiful AND enough!

One thing that I learned while reading this book is that one doesn’t necessarily have to be happy to be joyful. I can be sad, but still have joy in knowing that He has this all covered, including whatever may be causing my sadness.

“Out of the mouths of babes,” as they say. Grace tells it like it is and gives us questions to ponder along the way. Am I Enough? Has been an eye-opener for me in a multitude of ways. We older ladies are supposed to teach the younger ladies, but I think that we also should be open to learning from them.


Five Star Review


I give Am I Enough? 5 stars and hope that you will get as much from it as I did. I hope that you learn that you ARE enough, enough for Him, your Creator.

The Flying Tigers: The Untold Story of the American Pilots Who Waged a Secret War Against Japan by Sam Kleiner ISBN: 978-0-399-56413-0

If you like to read about fighter pilots or World War II like I do, you will enjoy The Flying Tigers: The Untold Story of the American Pilots Who Waged a Secret War Against Japan by Sam Kleiner.

This is a good account of what went on during the top secret days before the war.  It is the story as taken from letters written back home to the families and friends of those infamous Flying Tigers.

This is a very interesting story written, while trying to be factually accurate, to tell the story of the leader and founder of the Flying Tigers and his fight to keep the Tigers flying.

To be honest, I never knew how involved the U. S. was with China at the time.  Most of the books I have read mentioned the war in China more as a footnote than anything else.

We learn a little more about Pappy Boyington and his Black Sheep. We read about how a direct descendant of Robert E. Lee is buried in the rose garden at Lee’s home.


Four Star Review


We give The Flying Tigers four out of five stars.  It is a good book, but it just does not get to the level of “Can’t put it down.”

Overcoming the Hand You Were Dealt by Kisha Taylor ISBN: 978-1-944348-40-3


From time to time, we get a book that is just screaming, “Me next, me next.”  Overcoming the Hand You Were Dealt by Kisha Taylor was one of those books.  There are over 53,000 books in our to be read file, each with the hope that it will receive a review.

It is difficult to believe that this book is the first book out of the chute for this author. Taylor is a master storyteller who tells the story very well.

It does not matter that there are times this old Southern white male needed a hood-to-redneck dictionary. We speak the same language, Christian.

The author writes in such a way that you can feel the pain.  You can feel the betrayal. Readers follow as one person after another in the main character’s life hurts her in one way or another.

Then, we read in this true story of how the main character overcame all odds.  How she pulled herself up by the bootstraps she did not have and overcame.

We think Overcoming the Hand You Were Dealt would make a good book for a small group Bible Study.  The author makes no excuses for her character and she admits to mistakes along the way.

Five Star Review


We give this book all five stars.  It is one of those books you won’t want to put down.  One that you want to think everything is rosey in the end, but it is about real life. You will want to buy a copy for all those independent black women in your life and maybe a copy for that redneck man, too.  



We were sent a complimentary copy of this book.  We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.

Persuasion: Dark Psychology - Secret Techniques To Influence Anyone Using Mind Control, Manipulation And Deception by R.J. Anderson ASIN: B07BQMGCLL

We like to read books on psychology. We found that Persuasion: Dark Psychology - Secret Techniques To Influence Anyone Using Mind Control, Manipulation And Deception by R.J. Anderson was a good survey into what types of influence are available today.

You are not going to learn how to turn your friends into mindless zombies simply by reading this.  Some people today are already there and need no persuasion.


Five Star Review


We give this book all five stars.  We think it helps people learn a little more about psychology.

It’s All About You: A Guide to Good Mental Health and Wellness by Cynthia Rapazzini ISBN: 978-1-5043-8579-4

If we were to decide how good or bad It’s All About You: A Guide to Good Mental Health and Wellness by Cynthia Rapazzini is based upon whether or not we agree with everything the author writes, it would fail miserably.

Our family has had many experiences with the mental health care system, all bad.

We have dealt with ADHD, Depression, PTSD, Psychosis, Schizophrenia, Bipolar disorder, and more. In every case, the mental health care system made the situation worse.  Once to the point suicide was seriously a possibility.


Somewhere some self-appointed expert decided that if a situation lasted more than two weeks, it was mental illness; we beg to differ.


Too often all the mental health “professionals” have to offer are drugs. One so-called professional did not offer anything other than a drug and then said, “You are crazy if you don’t take it.“ Those are the exact words.


But, a review is supposed to be about the book and not about how well we agree with what the author has to say.  In this case, we don’t agree with very much.


Rapazzini attempts to explain the mental health care system.  She says we should choose our mental health care providers carefully.  It would be great if it worked that way for poor people. When you have to go through non-profits and government programs to get mental health care, you don’t get to choose.


The author tells us that there are laws in place to prevent abuses, tell that to our family member who found herself handcuffed to a bench after speaking with a mental health professional.


We cannot say this book is well-written because there are a few occasions where the author, or someone on her behalf, went back to edit her work and left an extraneous word or two.


The most glaring problem is the misuse of the word “Whether”.  In school we were taught there was always another option given when the word whether was used. “I don’t know whether OR NOT I am going the the show.” Maybe that is nitpicking.



On page 42 and 43, we are given statistics on suicide for 18-34 year olds.  The two groups most likely to commit suicide, each with double digit figures, are Native Americans and Whites.  The other two groups were the lowest Hispanics and African Americans, both with single digit figures. The author goes on to say that minorities are less likely than whites to seek mental health care.

 It would appear that the African Americans and the Hispanics benefit from this since their rates of suicide are lower. This would imply that you are less likely to commit suicide if you DON’T seek the help.  We doubt this is always true but, statistically speaking, there is a case to be made.



Three Star Review


We give It’s All About You three stars.  We do not feel it is a useful tool in our toolbox.




We were sent a complimentary copy of this book.  We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.
