Who wants to buy a tshirt?

Standard

Well, it’s not just any kind of t-shirt either. I’m a fan (Probably one of who knows how many are out there) of the show Person of Interest. I haven’t watched much of this season, definitely have to get caught up on  that. Anyways, after watching I don’t know how many episodes of it I’ve watched, (Mostly just season two, working on Season one, and a few of Season 3) I’ve been thinking of analogies that have been running through my head most of the times  I’ve watched it.

More specifically, what the show is about, the person of interest that Mr. Reese and Mr. Finch, help out. Now I don’t know how I got onto this, but even thinking about the title of the show, the analogy has come to mind about God choosing us as a people of interest.

The other day my sister told me about this site called TeeSpring, which is basically a crowd funding site like Kickstarter, but only for tshirts, which is a pretty cool idea. So, Using that idea, I created a t-shirt, using 1st Peter 2:9 – “But You are a chosen people, a Royal Priesthood, a Holy Nation, God’s Special Possession”

Here is the link if anyone is interested in purchasing it – http://teespring.com/peopleofinterest

Pass it around to your friends since if you are really interested in it, at least 50 people need to preorder the shirt for this to happen.

A Draw of Kings, Staff and the Sword Series #3 – Patrick W. Carr

Standard

Their journey to Merakh should have made Errol and his companions heroes of the realm. Instead, much is changed on their return. In the wake of the king’s death, Duke Weir is ruling the country–and his intentions are to marry Adora to bring an heir.

With Errol and the others imprisoned and the identity of the rightful heir to the throne still hidden in secrecy, Illustra is on the verge of civil war–and at growing risk from the armies of Merakh and Morgol.

A dangerous mission to free Errol succeeds, but the dangers facing the kingdom are mounting with every passing moment. The barrier has fallen, ferals are swarming toward the land, and their enemies draw near. Will the revelation of Illustra’s next true king come in time or will all be lost?” (Taken From Christianbook.com)

Can I say what a thrilling book this was? Well, I’m saying it alright, because it was absolutely amazing!

Patrick W. Carr, definitely hit the ball on the absolutely epic conclusion of the Staff and The Sword Series. Comparing it back to the first book, The Hero’s lot, Patrick still has the amazing writing ability that he’s carried though out the books. The detail and everything else has been phenomenal and especial with the last book, there’s no less of it! The Character’s and everything else I just love about the book, taking the time for all the little details that make this such an amazing book.

Remembering how the Characters were in the first book, and seeing how they are no, you can definitely tell that they’ve been on a grand adventure. This is a great and well written book, all of the different elects from Fantasy/Adventure/Action have been combined to create an amazing tale with a great meaning behind the story. Even when I had put this book down a few times, I wanted to pick it back up and finish the story right away and see what lied ahead for the characters. It made me at least del like I was part  of the book, imagining everything happened like it was before my very eyes.

I give this book a rating of 4 out of 5 stars

Fighter: Five Keys to Conquering Fear And Reaching Your Dreams

Standard

Named after his highest charted song, Fighter, this book is the story of how Chris conquered his fears and found success in five stages, which he calls the anatomy of a fighter—courage, perseverance, mindset, discipline, and willpower—the five resources we can all draw on in order to reach our dreams, no matter what they are. The message is simple; we have to replace fear with faith. If God can do something great with a skate punk from Pickering Ontario, imagine what he can do with your life!” (taken from Manafest.storenvy.com)

We all have fears in our lives, fear of not reaching what we should be reaching, fear of not doing this or that because of something, the fears and lies that Satan puts inside of our minds that we try not to believe, we need to punch fear in the face and get rid of believe any of it.

This book does exactly that, it goes through different ways that can help you conquer the fear inside of you, making the person that God intended you to be. The one thing that I really loved about this book was all of the true and personal stories that Manafest tells us through his life and how he got rid of the fear inside of him to grow to be the person that he is today. It’s his life story, all  of the hardships theta he faced, the struggles and all of the life lessons that he learned along the way.

This is one book that  had me drawn in to every page and, like a lot of other reviews for this book, this, I couldn’t put down because I  like real and true stories.

About The Author
Musician Chris “Manafest” Greenwood lost his father to suicide at the age of five, and found himself with nothing to cling to but a single mom and his childhood dream of moving to California to become a professional skateboarder. But God had different plans; by the age of 18 Chris fell in love with hip-hop music and quit his corporate job to join the ranks of Toronto’s competitive underground hip hop scene, choosing the name Manafest as a reflection of his goal to manifest his dreams. After years of fighting for success in one of the toughest industries in the world, he found himself living in his dream— a 3-time JUNO award nominee, Top 10 Billboard charted rock artist, living in southern California, selling hundreds of thousands of records worldwide.
