Never Surrender Your Soul by Brian Michael Good
I recently came across this book and found it very inspirational and a very easy read. I don't always share my reviews, but thought you guys might like to give it a read yourself. Here is the review. By the way the book on kindle is only .99 on amazon.
I found this book to be very inspiring and profound. The author delicately shares information that makes you think about who you are and who you want to be. He shares some of his personal experiences and how these experiences have influenced who he is today. The book has much needed information that can help readers to unlock the doors to who they really want to be and reasons why they are who they are. There are parts of this book that I think could help many of our young teens these days. I believe teens would be able to relate to the author’s own experiences as a child and how he has changed to be more of the person he is today. “Surrender Your Soul” has made me think about what I need to do to be the person I want to be.
The book speaks of religions, spirituality, parenting, and God or whom the author calls “Weshemehe.” This book was an interesting read and I read this book within a matter of a few hours. I was influenced to spend some time reflecting on my own life and how I could use this new information to start moving towards the person I want to be. As a parent of two teen boys, I felt that this book might help both of them in understanding the world around them and that they do have choices about how they act and their own behavior and how these characteristics can cause certain reactions in others.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to make changes in their lives or if they have children that are feeling lost. I think this book can help others not only learn about religions and spirituality, but to open the door to learning about oneself.

I just wanted to take a moment to share a fundraising gig on fund me about a family needing help. All help is welcomed even if just a few dollars to help this family get the medical attention needed. Please check it out and share with on twitter and Facebook.
My name is Jerri and it’s been one heck of a year for my family. In 2011, I was in an accident that led to injuries in my low back, neck, both hips, knees, shoulders, elbows, and left hand that have left me handicapped. Being that the injury was a work injury, I no longer make any money from it, because worker’s comp only pays for the first two years of any claim. The insurance company delayed my treatment for almost two years and I had to go to court just to get seen. I am in a very severe and debilitating way now and unable to work. I cannot get social security as I am still being treated and am not permanently disabled yet, but cannot work. Last year my husband and I had to make the hardest decision for our family and let the bank take our home and move to the Midwest to find a better opportunity for employment for my husband and hopefully better medical treatment for my work injuries. We have been barely making it with only one person working in the household. Before my work injury I had went to school and gained my Master’s degree in counseling and was working out in the field with clients diagnosed with autism. Since my injury we have lost our home and most of our belongings.
I have put this together for our family’s medical needs, which are many. We haven’t qualified for insurance and we can’t afford to pay for it either. A friend of mine thought putting together a fund might allow people to help us gain some medical attention. We are in need of everything from the eye doctor and glasses to getting a regular checkup. My husband works hard to try to make enough money for our family but it’s just enough to keep a house over our heads. With my medical needs he has to take time off from work with no pay to take me to see specialists and have surgeries and treatments. It’s been a long hard road, but we are hopeful that others may help us raise the monies needed to for our medical needs so that we can be healthy for our family.
I thank you so much for anything that you may want to donate and God Bless you all for your help. Here is the link to the Fund Me site http://www.gofundme.com/jc7q3k
