The Chicken Runs at Midnight: A Daughter’s Message from Heaven That Changed a Father’s Heart and Won a World Series by Tom Friend with a Forward by Tim Kurkjian ISBN: 978-0-310-35206-8


“The Chicken Runs at Midnight”, it kind of sounds like one of those nonsensical codes we used to hear about in spy thriller spoofs.

Instead, this was really a miraculous message from a teenage girl who had gone to be with our Lord, to her family.

The book The Chicken Runs at Midnight: A Daughter’s Message from Heaven That Changed a Father’s Heart and Won a World Series by Tom Friend with a Foreword by Tim Kurkjian shows readers that it is also a message to all families. This would make a good Focus on The Family book.

There are multiple Christian and other messages in this book.  One of the most important ones is that we, as parents, may not realize how every word we say to a child changes the child’s life, whether it be for good or for bad.

Speaking as one who has been in a coma, I (David) know that the advice given by the nurse was exactly right.  People in comas do hear and understand everything that is going on around them. The family did the right thing.

We give The Chicken Runs at Midnight all five stars and five boxes of facial tissue to wipe away the tears.  Happy tears and sad tears. This book is extremely well written. In this day of books being published at a super fast rate, they often miss wrong spellings of words, bad grammar, and editing problems.  I found none in this book. A rare case indeed.



We were sent a complimentary copy of this book.  We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.

Tex-Mex Diabetes Cooking: More Than 140 Authentic Southwestern Favorites by Kelley Cleary Coffeen ISBN: 978-1-58040-665-9




I, David, have been a diabetic since July of 1976.  This condition - it is not a disease - has been with me a long time.  That is why it is always good to find a good cookbook that helps deal with reducing sugar and fat intake.

Although we differ with the ADA on the use of alcohol, as reported by the author, we think Tex-Mex Diabetes Cooking: More Than 140 Authentic Southwestern Favorites by Kelley Cleary is a wonderful cookbook. We feel it is best to stay away from alcohol completely because it can drastically lower blood sugar levels.

The instructions are easy to follow and clear.  Readers are told, in an easy to understand way, how to prepare each recipe.

We feel that Tex-Mex Diabetes Cooking is a great resource for diabetics.  We give it all five stars.

Master Your Business Cash Flow: Grow the Company You Love, Live the Life You Want Now by Albert J. Zdenek


Cash is king!  Anyone who owns a business, or is learning about business, is taught that early in their education.  

In his new book, Master Your Business Cash Flow: Grow the Company You Love, Live the Life You Want Now,  Albert J. Zdenek gives business owners a few more tools for their toolbox.

It is unlikely that Zdenek and I will ever see eye to eye when it comes to debt.  However, one must realize that his company is valued in the millions, where as the company my wife Suzanne and I have has a net worth of negative 205.80.  Yes, we managed to reach that level with a grand total of 34¢ in revenue.

All joking aside, Zdenek makes a very good case for using debt to finance your business. It does make sense to use other people’s money whenever you can to finance your business.

Having once worked as a collection agent, it is hard for me to understand that there are people who are backed up about asking people for the money they owe their company.  

We give Master Your Business Cash Flow all five stars and a pumpkin spice latte.  We think you will, too.

Book Review: Opening: Lotus Hawk's Prayers & Meditations: Guiding Prayers for Any Day by Harriette "Lotus Hawk" Mandeville ISBN: 978-1-4834-2214-5



It really isn’t anti-Christian, either.  I doubt that one could pin any label on this collection of prayers and meditations.

This very short book is meant to help one reflect on their thoughts and feelings.

We are Fundamental/Charismatic Christians. We judge any book that claims to be spiritual in nature using that as our starting point.  But, we also judge books by the value received for the price paid.

All things considered, we really cannot give Openings a rating higher than three stars.  Many of the 68 pages of this book are blank (10 pages or 14%) with the understanding the reader will make notes on those pages. Several of the other pages are mostly blank.

We really cannot recommend Openings at all.  The theology is all over the place. It is very polytheistic in nature.


We were sent a complimentary copy of this book.  We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.

Book Review: The Income Miracle: How to Use Life Insurance for a Safe and Tax Free Income Stream by Marc Aspen ISBN: 9781532379796





The booklet The Income Miracle: How to Use Life Insurance for a Safe and Tax Free Income Stream by Marc Aspen actually bills itself as an article.  It is short, only 20 pages, including the appendix, but it contains loads of information.

One may ask, “Is a twenty page booklet really worth the cover price?”  We would answer that by asking you, “If Warren Buffett offered to sell you a single sheet of paper that contained the secret of how he got wealthy, what would that be worth to you?”

The concept detailed in this book is not new, it just isn’t talked about a lot.  We have reviewed two other books regarding the same subject in the last few months.  This is not new. Many financial gurus will tell you that this method does not work. They advise you to buy term life insurance and invest in stocks and bonds.  I believe these gurus are wrong.

If I had known about this back several years ago, I would be much better off today.  If I had listened to my father, who had actually sold insurance years ago, I would have had this type of plan.

Aspen does not tell you that this way is the ONLY investment you need, like so many other investment books we have read, and there have been hundreds.  He does suggest that this is a part of your investment plan.


Even though this article is short, it might just be the best investment you have made in a while.  It might lead you to ask more questions of your insurance agent. It might lead you to better understand your financial future. We give The Income Miracle all five stars.

Unveiling the Mystery of the Bride of Christ: The Restoration Truth of Who & What Is the Bride of Christ by Duke Levy ISBN: 978-1-9736-1892-8




Any time one has an alternative interpretation of the scriptures from what we were taught in Sunday School, we question the validity of that interpretation.

In Sunday School, we are taught that God changed Saul’s name to Paul.  This never happened. Saul was his Hebrew name and Paul was the translation of Saul into the Gentile tongue.  


We may not see eye-to-eye with Mr. Levy on the interpretation of the scriptures, but we can understand why he believes what he believes.

One instance of this difference would be Mr. Levy thinks we should continue to eat only foods that are clean according to the Old Testament.  He may be right. However, our interpretation of Acts 11 leads us to believe that all foods are now clean. Would we be better to err on the side of caution?

Mr. Levy makes some very good points.  We cannot judge whether he is right or wrong, theologically speaking.  We know what we believe and can see why he believes what he believes.

Five Star Review


Unveiling the Mystery of the Bride of Christ is very well-written and well-researched.  Mr. Levy has spent years analyzing the scriptures to learn the truth, as he interprets it.  We give this book all five stars.
