Application of Impossible Things – Book Review

I recently read one of the most incredible books I’ve ever come across. It’s called “Application of Impossible Things” by Natalie Sudman. It tells the amazing story of Natalie’s near-death-experience while working as a civilian in Iraq. I highly recommend this book because I think it has the power to change how you view life for the better. It has really opened my mind up to the rich continuum of life that doesn’t end with physical death.  If you’ve ever been curious about the after-life, please read on. And if you’d like to experience more peace in your own current life, please read on!

I love the song, “Maybe God is Trying to Tell You Somethin’,'” from the Color Purple soundtrack.  It is a very passionate and moving gospel song. Every once in a while, something happens in my life where I can hear a message from God. It’s not always earth shattering, but even when it is a simple message it is still a delightful intermission from my usual mundane thought patterns. Hopefully this story will spark your interest to  adjust the dial on your “tuner” in order to hear the messages you may be receiving right now. Continue Reading →
