Sir Rowan and the camerian conquest

Sir rowan had always loved Knights, and Battles, and good defeating evil. When the chance came when he too could be a knight, he jumped for joy. For he had been chosen by the King and his son, to lead his people out of the hands of the dark knight, Lucas. As he practiced he became great, and as he became great, he became selfish. Rude and arrogant to all, and prideful in his being. He no longer head to the call of the king, but fought in tournaments. In winning the country’s affection, he lost all sense humility, and selflessness. When captured and left for dead, he finds love, hope, and most of all A Brother?  But still following what he thinks is best is not always the way to go.
I found this book, riveting, and timeless. Thought I did cry my eyes out in a few parts, the end result was worth it. Even though he was beaten, left for dead, and had everything he loved ripped away from him. He finds that if you trust in God that anything is possible. Even when you think your idea is better God has a way of turning everything for good. I also really liked the forward and suggest reading it before you read the book.

I got this book to review honestly by Water brook Publishers

Heaven is for Real DVD Conversation kit

What does Jesus look like? Do angels have wings? Are there animals in heaven?? All these questions and so many more are answered by none other than, Todd, Sonja, and Colton Burpo. When Colton goes through and emergency surgery, he visits Heaven, and is now here to tell us everything. Including animals, Colors, Family members, and JESUS. And don’t forget that Jesus REALLY loves the children! During his time in heaven Colton, (three and a half at the time) See’s his grandfather that he never knew, a Sister that was miscarried, and Jesus himself! The conversation kit includes a DVD Interview with the Burpos, in Five different sessions, and a Conversation Book on the subjects in the Sessions.
In this DVD Conversation kit, Denver news reporter Natalie Tysdal, hosts an Interview with the Burpo’s. In this Conversation kit, I found many answers to my questions. (And no you do not ask questions through the screen or call in. They are pre written questions.) Throughout five sessions, there is an introduction to the session by Todd Burpo, and an interview with the Burpo’s. Colton, (now Twelve and a half) tells about his experience from his own eyes, and shares much of what happened that did not make it to the book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

I got this book from tyndale media center  for free for this review.

P.S. I had to use my sister's  account to post the review on  a retail website, so it says "Libbi" even though it was my review :)
