Review: Just Tyrus: A Memoir by Tyrus

Our family never misses an episode of Gutfeld! --the King of Late Night.  We look forward to hearing what comical quip Greg Gufeld will use to introduce his "massive sidekick," Tyrus.  Even with no training in the field of journalism, Tyrus's commentary is usually some of the sagest and most insightful analysis you will hear, even among a guest panel of seasoned journalists.  How did a pro wrestler end up being a political commentator?  Tyrus's book explains it all, and when you hear his life story, you will be amazed to learn how the school of hard knocks built him into the man he is today. Just Tyrus:  A Memoir Synopsis George Murdoch, aka Tyrus, was born to a white mother and a black father.  To say that his childhood was dysfunctional is an understatement.  His father was an abusive man who had no interest in sticking around for his children.  After his parents' divorce, Tyrus and his brother were raised by loving foster parents who hoped to adopt them, but

"Battle for the American Mind" by Pete Hegseth & David Goodwin Provides a Road Map for Reclaiming Our Schools AND Our Culture

Whether you're a parent, grandparent, or merely an alarmed patriot shocked at the state of American culture, Battle for the American Mind:  Uprooting a Century of Miseducation will explain how we got to this societal low point and what we can do to fix it. Battle for the American Mind Provides Historical Insight into Our Current Educational Crisis It might seem like today's classrooms have taken a sudden hard left turn into cultural Marxism within the last few years, but Battle for the American Mind reveals that the strategic overhaul of American education has been in the works for more than a century. Terms like critical race theory, diversity, equity, inclusion, environmentalism, social justice, and gender fluidity have appeared seemingly out of nowhere and highjacked American culture, but radical cultural Marxists have been stealthily chipping away at the very bedrock of our Western civilization for much longer than we realize. Even if you are raising your children in the

2023 Reading Challenge That's Fun & Easy!

Not Your Typical 2023 Reading Challenge When you're a voracious bookworm, a new year means a fresh start on tackling your TBR list.  We somehow think this is the year we will mark every book as read and finally reach the end of our list, knowing the lofty goal will always remain a dangling carrot of vain pursuit.   With renewed vigor and time on our hands in the colder months, we also accept reading challenges to expand our literary horizons.  Like many New Year's resolutions, our enthusiasm quickly wanes when we fall further and further behind, and the challenge becomes more like a tedious chore than something to savor. Let's change that in 2023! Reading should always be a rewarding, worthwhile experience.  Life is busy, so when you can squeeze in time for reading, it should be like sitting down with your best friend--a fun and unhurried time of delightful engagement.   Challenges that include specific books, themes, or genres that don't interest you or ones that tax y

Review: "The Book of Signs" by Dr. David Jeremiah

Is the End of the World Near?  When you watch the news and read the headlines, it seems our world is hurtling towards disaster.  Christ followers are taught to be ready for His Second Coming, although no one knows the day or the hour He will return. The Bible is filled with prophetic passages to give us clues about what to expect in the end times leading up to the apocalypse; however, unless you're a Biblical scholar, many of these scriptures may seem cryptic.   In The Book of Signs , Dr. David Jeremiah shares deep insight into complicated Biblical prophecy to make it digestable and easy to understand.  Your eyes will be opened, and the meaning behind familiar scriptures will be revealed  like never before.   How The Book of Signs is Structured The Book of Signs is a comprehensive manual that breaks down end time prophecies into manageable chunks over the course of 31 chapters: PART 1:  International Signs Chapter 1:  Israel Chapter 2:  Europe Chapter 3:  Russia Chapter 4:  Babylo
