Save Your Marriage in Five Minutes a Day Simple Daily Strategies to Transform your Relationship

Save Your Marriage in Five Minutes a Day Simple Daily Strategies to Transform your Relationship

As much as the book appeared interesting - I have to say that I wasn’t really impressed, but perhaps that wasn’t the point. Happiness is a state of mind but reality is not. It takes two to make a marriage work, which was portrayed well in here-but it also gave a sense of complete peace and there’s never that 100%, I like her suggestions and plan on trying some with my boyfriend (I don’t believe in marriage) Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good book - but it wasn’t for me.  I like what the author had to say but it takes more then just gestures, and with the world already so unhappy today it won’t  always work, but it is worth a try and for that I recommend it to people that are married and having problems, I just personally didn’t care for it.

Galileo Christian Encounters Series by Mitch Stokes

Galileo Christian Encounters Series by Mitch Stokes retells the story of Galileo Galilei an Italian who studied physicist, mathematician, astrologer, and of course philosopher of history.  He played a major role in helping science evolve past the concept of revolutionary into a more advanced time. He was known as the father of observantly astrology and his most known achievements were the improvement of the telescope and the consequences it would have on the planet. He was a Roman Catholic who was good with his faith but had two children out of wedlock; but despite that he was a good astrologer, some may even say one of the best who help to really bring science ahead with all  the latest testing and theories, he was also said to predict the end of the world in the year 2300, with the advanced studies he did. Although that still remains unclear. In his earlier years he wanted to pursue a life in priesthood, but thanks to his father’s insistence he went on to study medical at the University of Pisa; however he did not complete that degree and instead studied mathematics. He was also responsible for the separation of science and church during the Inquisition, which took place in the year 1616 while trying to defend the heliocentric theory. His life was full of adventure and was a very fascinating read-I definitely recommend this book!
