Rachel4 Stars Out Of 5Quick ReadJune 11, 2017RachelQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I enjoyed reading this book. I liked the fact that it was easy to read through. It is broken down into 'nuggets' and can be read from front to back or can be read randomly. There were some points that really made me stop and think but overall it was a very light read, nothing too heavy that got me feeling too entrenched in my thoughts. It was refreshing and uplifting. There were several little quotes that I wrote down for reflection at a later date. I think this would be a good read for somebody struggling with depression because it isn't overwhelming to too deep but it is uplifting and encouraging. I recommend this book! I did receive it as a review from Revell Books but that has not affected my opinion after reading it.
daleenc4 Stars Out Of 5Good Book, But Not A DevotionalJune 6, 2017daleencQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3This book is small--166 pages-- and each chapter is as small as a devotion sized book. So if you want to read this for your morning devotions, go ahead! (However, I wouldn't suggest that as devotions are supposed to be more Bible study than a pep talk.)
I think he brought up some really good points that a lot of people should read. (Debating which person to pass this onto next, lol!) He used stories, jokes, and the occasional Bible verse to make his point. A point which I think is important-- that you are stronger than you think. If God is for you, who can be against you? I've never heard of An Enemy Called Average, but now I want to check it out!
One thing annoyed me. With John Mason as a Christian writer, I felt that he spent too little time talking about the power of God, or having God on your side, or looking to God for encouragement and motivation. Instead, he spent most of his time talking about digging your feet in and simply standing up for whatever it is you're trying to do.
If you see this at your library or another book place that you frequent, be sure to pick it up! It's worth it. :)

sstormAge: 25-34Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Good Book and Devotional !May 29, 2017sstormAge: 25-34Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4"Never Give Up" is a book that I read like a devotional. It has 52 nuggets of truth and the chapters aren't long at all. They are about 3 pages, which broken down is about 5-10 minutes of reading every day. This is a great book jammed packed with wisdom about how to keep going when the odds are stacked against you. I really liked "nugget 34" which talks about how we need to always lift people up. In a society where we judge and criticize others, or we think we know what is going on in their lives, this nugget helped me to see that we need to BELIEVE the BEST in EVERYONE of our leaders! I love how this particular nugget talks about raising up influential leaders in the best way and that they don't need to be recognized by other people, but they are genuinely interested in others, always speaking praise, want to make other people better and have good reputations. This nugget stuck out to me as so many others did. I found this book to speak a lot of truth. I give this book a 4/5 stars. Thank you to the publisher for providing me a complimentary copy. A favorable review was not required.
Helen MAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Inspirational BookMay 7, 2017Helen MAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Never Give Up: You're Stronger Than You Think is an inspiring book written by John Mason. This book is broken up into three sections, Looking Inward, Looking Outward and Looking Upward. Within these three sections are 52 nuggets of information to help us not give up on our dream. The author gives us tips on how to not give up when we are ready to quit, how to avoid trouble and how to keep our energy up when faced with difficulties.
The author points out that anything worth doing is going to have struggles. And that most people give up either when they have failed to do something they wanted, or when they have accomplished something they aimed for. The author points out to us that God does not quit. That God has given us gifts to use and excel at. God does not take back the gifts he has given us. That by using the gifts God has given us, we will get better at what we are doing.
The author uses Bible verses to show us that the Bible gives us directions for how to live. He also uses Bible verses to show us how to gain godly wisdom and the benefits of prayer. God will give us the answers we need if we listen when he speaks to us. God will tell us what he wants us to do and he will use us right where we are, just like he used people in the Bible such as Mary to be the mother of his son.
Some of the points in this book that really stand out to me are that we sometimes feel we should always be busy. This kind of thinking can be a trap. The important thing is that we are progressing. The author points out that the Devil tricks us into saying yes to so many things. We gets spread so thin that we are not able to excel at what we are doing. I wish I had read this 10 years ago when I left the work force and decided to volunteer a little. My little became very overwhelming quite quickly.
Another thing the author points out in the book is that everyone has a potential to lead and influence others. He actually lists 25 ways to lead and influence well. When I took my first job outside of the house after having our children, I had co-workers tell me I would not be a quiet person very long working with them. Little did I know that I would eventually be in a position of leadership in work, as well as my volunteer life.
One of the most important nugget, I feel, is sometimes the most important thing is to get away to a peaceful God-filled spot. To leave thoughts and feelings behind. We should have a place where we can go to be alone and focus on the Lord.
This is a very thought provoking book. This is a book that you may want to go back to from time to time to encourage you in your daily walk.
I received this book from the Revell Publishing. I have chosen to write this honest review.
Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5An Answer for "I Quit"May 2, 2017Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4First, the disclaimer. "I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, NEVER GIVE UP: Your're Stronger Than You Think is full of common sense advise and stories illustrating the point. I've heard many of the stories before and the common sense advise is all well, common sense, but I guess that isn't so common anymore which is why the book was written.
The chapters are very short, and conversationally written. I read through half the book in an hour before I had to go fix supper, so you can easily read parts here and there or in a large batch.
The movie The Pacifier has a line in it said by the wrestling coach - Quitters, quit. And that is true. And this book emphasizes this point over and over. Those who succeed are the ones who keep trying. Keep learning. Keep making mistakes and learning from them. The ones who don't reach their goals are the ones who quit.
If you have something you really want to do and want to give yourself a heaping dose of common sense advise, this is the book to go to. If you have a son or daughter who keep quitting and not trying over and over, this would be a good book for them. If you think they'd read it and not quit. It would be good assigned reading for high school and college students who are struggling with hard classes, a job, and not succeeding the first time they try.
Pick up a copy of NEVER GIVE UP: You're Stronger Than You Think today for you or someone you know.
