What Do You Think of Me? Why Do I Care? by Edward T. Welch - ends today! (also free on Barnes and Noble, CBD, Google Play, Kobo, Bookshout)
Peer pressure, codependency, shame, low self-esteem; these are just some of the words used to identify how people are controlled by others' opinions. Why is it so important to be liked? Why is rejection so traumatic?

Edward T. Welch's insightful, biblical answers to these questions show that freedom from others' opinions and genuine, loving relationships grow as we learn about ourselves, others, and God. This interactive book includes questions for individual or group study and is suitable for teenagers and young adults.

Praying for Ferguson: Some Facts about the Situation to Inform Your Prayers

‘I Do It to Please God': Missouri Christian Cleans Up Ferguson Following Riots
An excerpt:  Terrence asked God, "What can I do?" and this is the response he believed he got from the Lord.

“It’s not just about white or black,” Williams stated. “It’s about all walks of life. I met people who wanted to shake my hand just to say thank you for cleaning up. I’ve met business owners that expressed to me how they felt… It’s just been an awesome experience and it’s just been amazing.”

He outlined, however, that although he has received much applause for his service to the community, he only seeks to please an audience of one.

“Everything that I do, I try to do it to please God,” Williams said. “Everything I do, I try to do it to make Him happy.”

“Since I was a little kid, I always knew that my life had a calling,” he stated. “I want to be able to go out there and spread positive information and help those that may be in danger. So, from the age of seven, I se…

A Great Thanksgiving Read for You and Your Family

Squanto and the Miracle of Thanksgiving
[Kindle Edition] Eric Metaxas (Author)

Print Price: $6.99
Kindle Price: $1.99 (save $5.00 off of regular Kindle price)

My review:  A delightful and heart-breaking story about a child's journey from his peaceful tribe in what is now Massachusetts to being taken hostage and sold into slavery. Follow Squanto from those innocent early days in America to Spain where he is sold as a slave and then to England where he is able to return home. See God's providence in placing Squanto into the hands of Christians who treated him well and understood his desire to return home. Read how God used him back in his homeland to help settlers escaping persecution in Europe survive in an unfamiliar new land. A great Thanksgiving day read for you and your family.

For those concerned about how it appears on the Kindle, I read it on my Kindle for PC with no problems. Everything was right where it belonged and the story flowed nicely.

Websightings: Vicious and Bloody Attack Kills 4 Jews Praying in Their Jerusalem Synagogue, Speaking to Your Boys about Kardashian, Russian Ministries Changes Its Name, Holiday Stories and Single Parent Encouragement

Jerusalem Terror Attack Leaves 4 Jews Dead, 8 Seriously Wounded and the 2 Palestinian Attackers Dead

Utilizing a pistol and meat cleaver, two Palestinians committed an act of vicious and murderous hatred on a prayer gathering of 25 in a Jewish synagogue in Jerusalem.

The amount of blood at the scene gives a sense of the terror and the atrocity committed there. 
Word is that this in the pre-1967 portion of Jerusalem, not what the Palestinians often call "occupied" Jerusalem.

Fifth person dies
Abbas condemns (but calls for end to Jewish provocations)
Hamas justifies, applauds and calls for more

Romans: Deliverance from Wrath[Kindle Edition] Zane Hodges 99 cents for a commentary on Romans Description on Amazon: Since the time of Luther, Paul’s epistle to the Romans has been understood as an evangelistic letter, where salvation was understood as a synonym for justification.

But Zane Hodges understands the letter differently. He sees a difference between justification and salvation, between eternal destiny and eternal rewards. Those who are justified still need to be …
