Review of t he book Wrestling For My Life by Shawn Michael

I really enjoyed this book. It was about the famous wrestler Shawn Michael's and about his life after he retired from wrestling and loving his kids and family and God.

I like the quote on page 66 which reads " I can compare it to my marriage. I still love Rebecca, but our relationship is not what it was like at the beginning. We have gone through tough times, working through them together. In the process of life's battles, we've grown closer to each other because we have learned more about each other. We've been wounded, and although those wounds have healed, they have left scars. "

I also like the quote on page 107 which reads " Some may not agree with how I do things, but as long as I pray and spend time reading God's word and sense that I am doing what he wants me to do when he wants me do it, then I figure that I am pleasing God, and this is the best that I can do."

I also like the quote on page 121 which reads " As Christian men, we can't be swayed by society's changing perspectives. If we do, we will have to change our beliefs to keep up with what's currently perceived as correct. But even that will change, too, with time. The bible hasn't changed and will not change. God's word is for all time, and I'm much more interested in God, not society, thinking I am cool. Thank you to booksneeze for letting me read this book about a wrestler I looked up to as a role model. "

Review of the book The Undertaker's Wife by Dee Oliver

This book was about a girl named Dee who fell in love with a guy named Johnnie who was a person who worked at a funeral home. He ends up dying because of a stroke and she has to struggle without him. She ends up going back to college and getting her degree and then she gets a job at another funeral home. I would have trouble working at a funeral home because of death. When I lost my grandfather I was in tears and couldn't stop crying. At the time I believed that God sends people to heaven but now I know the truth. I know when you are dead,you are just sleeping, not aware of anything. The world portrays God as an evil person who takes people to heaven to be an angel but that is not true. God already has angels and does not need to take us to heaven. Also if people believe that God sends people to Heaven, then how would it feel to be in heaven looking down on us and being sad because we are grieving. That is not comforting at all. It is more comforting to know that we are asleep in death. So we don't worry about someone dying. To be honest the reason I got this was at first I believed it was about the wrestler the undertaker but it wasn't. I am a big wrestler fan and enjoy watching it on tv and will be going to my first live match next month. Super excited.

Review of the book Twisted Innocence by Terri Blackstock

I really enjoyed this book. It was a murder mystery! It was about this woman named Holly who had a daughter named Lilly and she found out her ex boyfriend is wanted for murder and drug charges but she knows he is innocent and helps him get freed in the end and they end up getting back together and ends up being a happy family!I have liked other books from this author and will continue to get books from her. I like murder mysteries because I can never figure out who the bad guy is, I also enjoy watching murder mysteries on tv. My favorite show is Rizzoli and Isles and I cannot figure out who the bad guy always is and I enjoy the twists the tv show does. The suspect is usually no one believes could have done it. I find it fascinating and also find talking about murder fascinating too. I enjoy the tv show bones because you can find out so much about someone just by looking at their bones and investigating them. I am hoping to learn more about this and enrich my life. I also enjoy books with happy endings because I get involved in the characters and get myself into the book like it is my life and such. Books are a great part of my life because it gets me out of my mind and life into another demention. I ended up telling my friend all about this book because I enjoyed it so much.
