Title: Eating By Faith: A Walk With God. My Eating Disorder from the Inside Out
Author: Lisabeth Kaeser
Stars: 5 out of 5
As someone who has struggled with the demon of an Eating Disorder everything Lisabeth Kaeser wrote about was honest, truthfully and heartbreaking. Her honesty about how the demon will take root and just waiting for you to cross the line and the moment you do it will take over. All the time you keep lying to yourself thinking you can control.
Most do not think or see Eating Disorders as Addictions buts it front and center in the addiction world from controlling food to working out until your body gives into the high.
This book will help those who have loved ones suffering from an eating disorder. It will help open there eyes to what their love one goes though every day. From the struggle of eating, to the endless thoughts of hating themselves. She explains how it take roots in a secret place. A place where the addict rarely reveals to anyone even the people they love the most. If they do most of the truth is hidden away. In Fear of the truth.
Eating By Faith is a beautiful story of how Lisabeth Kaeser found Gods love while Satan would make her believe she is worthless. Eating By Faith is not only about an eating disorder but also a self discovery of our Saviors Unconditional love. No matter how hard we fight with our inner demons God is always there for us we just need to stop and ask for help.
No one is ever cured of an eating disorder it will always be there waiting to find your weakest moment and take over. If you have an eating disorder or a loved one with a disorder this book is worth the time.
Lisabeth Story is raw, honesty, heart felt and the truth for those who struggle with the mental illness of an eating disorder.
I would recommended this book to everyone who has been touched by someone with an eating disorder or personal has an eating disorder.
In Eating by Faith, Lisabeth invites you into the secret world of her eating disorder, and recovery. And while the illness looks different for every patient, all share a commonality of symptoms physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Eating by Faith will bring you into the mind and heart of someone suffering from the illness in such a brutally honest way, that you will have a greater understanding of the mind and heart of anyone suffering from this illness.
Her eating disorder, like most, takes root inside a secret place. This root is often anchored in the lies Satan would have us believe about ourselves. Once established, he will use the eating disorder to separate us from God, robbing us from our joy and our identity in Christ’s unconditional love.
Lisabeth’s story is one of wrestling with the eating disorder, herself, and God. It is about finding her identity in the love of Christ instead of her illness. Taste and See…

We have two birthday season in this house hold. One Starts in October and Goes until the end of December. The Nest Starts in January and goes until March. Every month has at least one birthday not to mention different holidays that all need attention. Today I have an amazing little 6 year old who has grown and changed from the shy little girl who would hide her face with her long hair to wear pony tails, smiling and trying hard to make her R sound like R's and not W's.
She is beautiful (Yes she is my daughter) Has the most amazing grays eyes. Yes she drive me nuts, knows where to push all my buttons to the point I want to pull my hair out and instead of time out for her its me that really needs time out because all she wants is a little attention from me.
She loves to smile, hug anyone that is her size and thinks the world is an amazing place full of adventure, life, love and hope.
Seeing her eyes light up at something new is what makes being a mother the most amazing gift. Even on the days I hide in the bathroom needing a little time to myself.
Happy birthday to my Amazing little Princess.\

Cate Beauman is a romantic suspence author who wants you to read her books. How do I know?
When you sign up on her author page to get updates on her life, books she writes and upcoming novels she will send you two free books. Now most who sign up have read at least one of her books usually the first one because it is free on Amazon kindle. Once you sign up you get the first in her Bodyguards of LA County free Morgan's Hunter. After a few days you will receive books 2 Falling For Sara not to mention any other of her books on sale or free as well on Amazon.
I will admit her books are hit or miss for me. I have read 4 books 2 I really enjoyed because the characters were fun, feisty but the other two the characters were annoying, and fell into the Romantic Suspense trap. (The female lead refuses to listen and the male is Alpha to the point of eye rolling.)
Each book can be read as a stand alone as well in the series where each characters develops more but as secondary or background characters. Female Characters are all in need to help or support but don't want it or refuse to listen. Most are very stubborn to the point it might turn off some readers but others will love them.
The books are all Happily Ever Afters making them predictable but at the same time its the adventure on how they fall in love that makes it worth the read.

Title: The Secrets of Ravelston
Author: Sergio Silveira
Review: Well this one is tough book to review. I read it and I enjoyed it for the most part. I felt the mystery that took Jane over was not well developed that if it had been me I would have just forgotten about it. Why pursue something with so little interest. Yes, as the book progressed she found more to interest the mystery, but I would have lost interest at the beginning and so should have Jane.
I don’t know about his being a YA mystery, it could be for any age, but the telling of the story did slow the flow of the book down. Telling and telling without showing gets old really fast. I was sick this last weekend and picked up this book. I read it and put it down to start another and when I finished that one I picked it up again and finished it. A bit slow in parts, but not a bad story overall. A bit tweaking of the writing style would greatly enhance the reading experience and maybe a bit more to grasp on for the mystery to start. Jane was bored, but I still did not see that as enough to get her interests sparked as much as they were in this Mary.
The ending felt a bit rushed and well a bit strange for that matter…what the heck was really going on? Is what I had to ask myself too many times.
Publisher: Published January 20th 2012 by Self Published
Quick Review: 2 1/2 stars (out of 5)
Why I Read It: Sent by the author for review.
Synopsis: As a young and well-to-do British lady of 1805, Jane Freemont's fate was solely decided by others. But her spirit was that of of a fearless sleuth, determined to discover the fate of a poor young woman who had vanished.
If you enjoy the genres of the English novels of manners (Pride and Prejudice) and English mysteries (Miss Marple), you will enjoy the Secret of Ravelston. It attempts to put together both. It also has much satire of aristocratic, well-to-do, individuals, who spend most of their idle lives attempting to amuse themselves, and being served by countless human beings they don't see as real people.
