The Sorcery Code (The Sorcery Code: Volume 1)

by Dima Zales (Author)

A book about magic.

-The sorcery code is a book about magic.
I’m not a big fan but decided to review it anyways. 

If you like stories about sorcery than this book is for you! Although There is a lot of better potential for the story.

Blaise, an outcast, of his own choosing, a once respected member of the Sorcerer Council, creates a powerful “being”, Gala. He wanted to create a special object that would be magical enough to share with all the peasants so they would have the means for their crops. He felt it was important for anyone to do magic. 

—————

Once a respected member of the Sorcerer Council and now an outcast, Blaise has spent the last year of his life working on a special magical object. The goal is to allow anyone to do magic, not just the sorcerer elite. The outcome of his quest is unlike anything he could’ve ever imagined – because, instead of an object, he creates Her.

She is Gala, and she is anything but inanimate. Born in the Spell Realm, she is beautiful and highly intelligent – and nobody knows what she’s capable of. She will do anything to experience the world . . . even leave the man she is beginning to fall for.

Augusta, a powerful sorceress and Blaise’s former fiancée, sees Blaise’s deed as the ultimate hubris and Gala as an abomination that must be destroyed. In her quest to save the human race, Augusta will forge new alliances, becoming tangled in a web of intrigue that stretches further than any of them suspect. She may even have to turn to her new lover Barson, a ruthless warrior who might have an agenda of his own . . .

#ReviewWithElly Alina Skin Care

 photo Alina.jpg

I have used this product 2x a day every day since the day I got it. That’s about 3 weeks. I think it was a short time for the visible results I got. I read many reviews on this product and I read a lot of negativities about it. People saying that the company basically paid for those reviews. Well, yes, I got the product for free, but the results and my opinion, no one can make it up. It’s honest. I wanted to come here and write an honest review. But not just write, I wanted to show my untouched (no photoshop) photos to you of the results.
 photo IMG_1277_1.jpg

The directions on the package of this product says not to use on your eyes. I wasn’t sure if that meant not to apply to the dark area under the eyes. I’m 36 years old and I don’t have any spots (dark spots) on my face or any wrinkles or lines, besides the very dark spots under my eyes so I used it on all my face including my eyes. Or should I say especially there. you will be able to see the difference and judge for yourself.

My honest and unbiased review of this product is that this product rocks, now I will continue to use it till it’s all done and will buy more. Thank you, Alina, for giving me the opportunity to try your product.

NOTE: People with dry or sensitive skin that have never used a Vitamin C skin care product may experience a slight stinging sensation during the first few applications. This is a normal and typically goes away within a few seconds. It will happen every time you apply. Should you experience redness, swelling or discomfort after using the product, please discontinue use and consult a healthcare professional. I received this case at a discounted/free price in return for my honest review.

Taste and see…

A 365 Days Challenge Day #10

 photo 8ae0c2e5e671f2cc792bed595ccf7616.jpg

Blind faith has never been a requirement for following God. The so-called  leap of faith is really only a small hop, like stepping across a little mud puddle, not a suicide jump across a canyon of impossibility. God allows us to verify his existence by looking into the heavens and seeing their scope and wonder, by exploring the intricate design of life and marveling at the Creator. The Bible invites us to taste and see that God is good. God wants to be experienced by you.

In a way, this journey is like courtship. As you place into God’s hands more and more of the pieces of your life, you discover who God really is and how He really feels about you. You learn what He means when He says, ” I love you.” In you prayers, share your doubts and fears with God. Ask Him how you can discover who He really is in those areas. Let Him reveal Himself to you in a way that you can experience.

Lord God, my idea of experiencing You is…

My idea of experiencing you is by sharing with you what I can’t share with anyone else, or nowhere else.

Walk Away With me

A 365 Days Challenge Day #9
 photo good-to-great.jpg

Good and Great 

Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who delight in them. 
Psalm 111:2 NRSV

Little children sometimes learn the dinner prayer, ” God is great. God is good. Let us thank Him for our food.” This simple prayer contains profound truth. God is good. He brings only good into our lives. He is never the author of any evil thing that happens to you or anyone else. But God is also great. His redemptive fingerprints are all over everything that happens to His children, so that we may emerge from tragedy and loss as victors instead of victims.

All of this becomes very personal when it comes time to trust God with the people and things you value most. As you place in God’s hands what is most precious to you, you demonstrate your belief that God is good and He is great. He is good enough to want the best for you and yours, and great enough to turn every difficulty into triumph. By transferring ownership to God, you give Him an opportunity to demonstrate His faithfulness to you. You become free to be His child, resting under His care.

Heavenly Father, I have seen Your goodness when…

I have seen your goodness in so many ways, in so  many different occasions. The times when I couldn’t fight for myself and you fought for me. I put all my trust in you then, and those times when I had given up on myself you still held on to me, and the times I thought my life was over because I had no more hope to keep going, nothing else had no meaning. You still saw your goodness in me and held me up. Thank you for all you have done.

A Time for Prayer

Prayer is a wonderful way to start your day. For a morning person what could be better? Making prayer part of your morning routine sets the tone for your entire day. But morning isn’t the only opportunity available to you. God is always available, and you can pray anytime you want.

For example, you can pray several times a day at important transitions in your schedule, divisions punctuate your day. You may wish to conclude your day in prayer__sharing the experiences of the last twenty-four hours with Him.

 photo prayer.jpg
Any of these options and more are available, you can decide which best fits your personality, your lifestyle, and your season in life. By setting a time and making a plan, you move from a great idea__prayer__to a great reality__a life of prayer. Your time alone with God becomes something that you look forward to and protect. By consistently connecting with God, you soul finds the nourishment it needs and the results is a richer, fuller life.

God, for me, the best time to pray is…

The best time for me to pray is usually at night when I’m alone and everyone is already sleeping. I sit on my bed start journaling, thoughts and words just start to flow out. This is my best moment when I lay it all out onto his hands.

Im a surviver

Dear Lord, 

It’s not always easy for me to know what to pray for, especially when I pray for a person or cause or situation that I do not know a lot about. Though answers may not seem apparent or issues resolved, please help me to keep my heart and mind connected to You. Guide me with Your counsel and open new doors of possibility. When life does not present easy answers or options, You always work on the situation brought before Your throne. I believe You know what is needed and I ask that You stay close and keep me strong 

Amen.

” Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7

A Place for Prayer

The great thing about meeting with God is that you can meet Him anywhere. He can be found on the factory floor just as readily as He can be experienced in a cathedral. If you could find a way to travel to the most distant galaxy, you would find that God is already there.

But just as a couple much in love will seek out a quiet place to be alone together, so you may also wish to find a place all your own to meet with God. You might find a place in your home where you can be free to focus on God. Or you might enjoy connecting with God outdoors along a nature trail or in a park.

 photo altalenando-1048171_960_720.jpg

Maybe you would prefer to meet privately with God in a church building or mix it up so you don’t get bogged down by too much routine.

 photo 72ce805b175efc2fa617004099ae6f6f.jpg

 

As you move forward in your journey, you’ll identify the atmosphere that works best for you. A place for prayer helps you grow in your friendship with God.

God, the place that works best for me to communicate with You is…

The Best place for me to communicate with God is where ever I communicate period. I think the important thing is to separate the time and communicate, and by doing it is what really matters. Of course we all have our little secret special place like our closet, for me, it’s the laundry room or the shower hahaha.
I always have long dialogs at those special times. 🙂

He said, ” My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14 NASB

 photo dfd62e3c8fe80ec7961b93309a84ecca.jpg

Dear Lord, 
You have the power to do more than I ask, more than I can imagine!
When I come to you in prayer then, let me do so knowing what great power You hold over any situation in my life.
I cannot measure Your power or truly even conceive of it in 
its fullness, but I know that the One who designed the universe by simply speaking it into being has the power to design my life.
I believe You can remold and reshape me and any circumstance in which I may find myself. 

God, I praise and thank You for my life and all that You are doing even now to help me.
Lord, I thank You for Your powerful and loving Spirit and for shaping me in ways that only serve to make me stronger. 

Amen.

A Book #ReviewWithElly Fix by Force By Jason Warne

 photo 1.jpg

Fix by Force

By Jason Warne
Published by WestBow Press

This is a story of a young 17-year-old boy named Spencer. A high school student. Like many others of course relentlessly bullied at school, dealing with his father’s death, his mother’s illness, and everyday life battle as a teen. Part of the time he is trying to figure out who he really is and uncover a story of himself in a town that just won’t allow it to happen. His biggest fear is to become a shadow of his old man. Poor kid tries so hard and everything backfires. This book will keep you up reading till the end. Overall, a good read. I enjoyed it, also found the story interesting.

Book Description

Drawn from personal experiences, this fast-faced story about self-image, relationships, choices, and sources of hope aims to speak to those readers who seek authentic and relatable characters they can identify with in real-life situations. Spencer doesn’t have a choice. He can’t choose to be different than what he is—the son of the town’s worst enemy, the weakling who can’t stand up for himself, the loser without friends. He can’t change the way things are. Or maybe he can. Spencer believes he needs to fix his life, and that is what the steroids promise—a quick fix.

iPhone 6s Plus Screen Protector @SpigenWorld #ReviewsWithElly

61rnea2bwfil-_sl1000_

 iPhone 6s Plus Screen Protector, Spigen® (3 PACK) iPhone 6 Plus / 6s Plus [3D Touch Compatible- Tempered Glass] Most Durable [Easy-Install Wings] Glass Screen Protector [Life Warranty] – SGP11786 (Wireless Phone Accessory)
The iPhone 6s plus screen protector from spigen is perfect. I really mean this when I say perfect. I’ve tried many screen protectors and they all failed right from the start.
When I received it in the mail it came in a secure package. The item in the box is a total of three protectors, cleaning cloth and wet wipes for cleaning the phone before you add the protector on.
615jlwxvahl-_sl1000_
I loved it right away because it’s easy to use with comprehensive instructions, and it looked really clean and smudge free. It leaves no bubbles and that was the best part. It’s also all that it says on the description.
The price for the pack is $22.99 and it’s worth the money. I did drop the phone face down a week after I installed the protector and all that happened was a little small crack on the protector nothing to my actual phone. I would buy this again when I need to.
( I received this product as a discount/free for my unbiased opinion )

Pray Without Quitting

A 365 Days Challenge Day #5

 photo 8d668806ab1236358d27a2e6c3f7bf3c.jpg

Pray Without Quitting

Does it seem your prayers have gone unanswered? Never give up. Find new ways to pray, and discover new ways to see your circumstances.

This requires a combination of teachability and persistence. If your prayers are answered in a way different than you expect, ask God what He wants to teach you through the experience. Ask Him again and again to show you what you need to know. Do you need to ask for something different? Do you need to wait longer for an answer? Listen and watch for God’s answers. If you are willing to listen and watch for God’s answers. If you are willing to learn, He is happy to teach. if you have patience, you’ll find His timing is perfect. Meanwhile, keep on asking.
 photo ad2ac79bce8b84add7536b33f84f4d34.jpg
Persistence forges strength of character that comes from refusing to quit, even when the path isn’t easy. By persisting, you join Him in His determination to make things right. Pray without quitting.

Heavenly Father, the things I want to persist in asking for are…

I want to be more persist in asking for patience. God knows I need it, more than I realize it. I need to pray without quitting and learn from whatever God gives me for an answer.
