Book of the Week - July 30, 2017



Life wasn't so great when you didn't have much of a relationship with your parents or the ability to play street games while growing up in the fifties. You would rather be secluded in your lonely room, using your imagination to write stories and draw comic books than to be drowned in negativity by your mother or humiliated by your peers. All of this can change for Jimmy Yadenik when he meets Johnny, his soon to be mentor and member of the Vandals, a street gang, and he applies for membership. But the transition won't be easy.





Are you looking at your life through positive thinking? 


After facing a lot of negative relationships and/or being accused of being a negative source, I felt the need to do a thorough selfexamination by looking at myself in the mirror to see where my faults were. I needed to discover how I could include this self-examination in my daily walk without being sidetracked. I needed to stay on a positive track and move to the next level in life. I needed to stop slipping through the cracks of depression, low self-esteem, insecurity, and fear. All of these things threatened my spiritual foundation. By praying, studying God‟s word, and applying it to my everyday life, and its challenges, I am now able to build up my spiritual house and look at myself in the mirror with confidence.
