Higher Is Waiting – Tyler Perry

Tyler Perry Higher is Waiting | Book Review | Abis Book Blog |Tyler Perry, aka Madea makes us all laugh with his humor, but he has a lesson in his plays and writings. He has never been shy about his faith and includes it in his work.In Higher Is Waiting, Tyler Perry shares spritural lessons he learned as he grew up. The book is written in the style of a devotional with a story, lesson learned and scripture to back it up.

The book is divided into four sections using the analogy of a tree; planting seeds, nourishing the roots, branching out and harvesting the fruit.

Here are a few lessons from Higher is Waiting:

  • Be aware of these different types of people in your life; leaf, branch and root people. Leaf people are those in your life for a short time, they are only around for a season and then fall off. Branch people are stronger than the leaf people but need care. They are around for much longer than the leaf people but won’t be able to weather very heavy storms. Root people are those who will always be there for you no matter the season of your life. The lesson here is that you can’t be upset with people for the role they play in your life, that’s just how it’s meant to be.
  • Guard your dream from dream killers. Don’t just tell anyone your dreams, protect them and guard them with your heart. Open up to only people you trust and who will not belittle your dreams. Even those who are close to you may want to talk you out of your dreams. Pray for wisdom as you seek advice.
  • Realize that there may be different ways to get to your dreams and be open to different ways of getting there.

Deep Waters: Trusting God When Your Feet Can’t Touch Bottom by Nathalie Michelle

Deep Waters -AmazonI ran into Nathalie, the author of this book at a mutual friends place on Super bowl Sunday.  Our first meeting was a few years back at this same mutual friends engagement party. I had heard about story and could never imagine how difficult things were for her. She brought along copies of her new book to the Superbowl party and luckily, I had $20 in my wallet so I purchased a copy.I’m not really into American football, I was only at the Superbowl party for the food, friends and Beyonce’s half time performance :). So I spent the first half of the game, reading Nathalie’s book. I didn’t know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised by her writing style. It was very easy to read and I settled into my own world and read about a quarter of the book during the game. Click here for more about this book
