Here is the third book in the series written by Nancy I. Sanders.
For the other blog posts and reviews I have done on the books in this series, I have mainly focused on content and information included. This time, I would like to focus on the outside of the book.
The cover has a very nice feel to it. It’s that grippy plasticy stuff. I LOVE the feel of this stuff, whatever it is called.
The graphics on the front and back cover are beautifully illustrated and colored.
These books will be able to stand a little bit of roughness to the covers. It is thick enough that it won’t rip easily and will be a little bit more resistant to bending.
That seems perfect for young readers!
I definitely recommend that these books be on any homeschool Christian bookshelves. Even personal home libraries! Young readers can learn while they are reading a beautiful and easy gripped book.
I don’t believe that we will get the last book of the series, because my son isn’t interested in reading that one and my daughter is a little too old for them.
**DISCLAIMER – I got this book from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review.
I have just read this book for the second time today, and probably not my last. My plans this morning when I started it was to read one chapter each morning until I was done. With 13 chapters, it would take me almost 2 weeks. But I couldn’t put it down today, so I finished it.
This is a very important book for every Christian to read. It’s hard to believe that there are Christians out there who don’t believe that they are fighting the spiritual world every day, but apparently there are.
Fellow Christians: We are fighting against the principalities of darkness constantly. Reading this book will help you to recognize when that is happening. The authors also include prayers throughout the book to show examples of prayers and the way that you can learn to pray to protect your household and yourself. Maybe even more!
A couple of quotes that I really thought were powerful:
“…May I remind you again that our resistance by itself is not what causes Satan to flee, he flees because of the power of Jesus which is ours through prayer.” – Paul Billheimer
“In the natural world, we would have no difficulty understanding how to apply disinfectant to an infection. We would take the disinfectant and sprinkle or pour it upon the infection, and the result would be that all germs and living organisms present in that infection would die.
Now we should have no difficulty in doing the same thing spiritually. Wherever Satan is at work, we must apply the only corrective antidote there is — the Blood of Jesus. There is absolutely no alternative, no substitute…This is why Satan has always tried to take the Blood out of our churches. If there is not disinfectant, then his demons are free to continue their deadly work of destruction in spirit, soul, and body…” – H.A. Maxwell Whyte
“We firmly believe a Christan who is walking in right relationship to God cannot be possessed by a demon. that would imply ownership or total control, and a Christian belongs to Christ, not the devil. But a believer who has compromised with the enemy–who has fallen into idolatry and removed himself from God’s protection–can certainly be tormented, harassed, or open to deception by demonic forces.” authors of book
Things I need to remember and take away from this book for myself and my family:
- To pray for the Lord to protect our house and property before we leave.
- When I feel fear and panic during the windstorms, I will pray for God’s protection upon our house and to stop all of the devil’s destruction.
- To recognize and notice traits of a bad spirit taking over and pray against it.
- To pray for my surrounding neighborhood, cities, states, and even nations across the world.
- When I feel threatened, call out in the name of Jesus to take control and banish the demons (Psalm 44: 4-7; Luke 10:17-19; Revelations 12:11; Luke 4:4, 8, 12; Matthew 21:19).
- That I have the power to pray away the devil and his demons from my family and husband.
- To pray for my husband when he seems to be fighting depression, anger, anxieties and panic attacks.
- That when I pray something in Jesus’ name and by His Blood, they are binding and powerful prayers.
Yes, the name changed. I really like the name Duck ‘N’ Chicks. But I wanted a name that covered every aspect of our home and reflected our faith.
So the new name is based on Galations 5:22-23
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

Joined Tumblr today. I’d love if you left me a comment if you have a Tumblr page and I’ll follow you! Click link

Do you have a CafeMom account? If so, here is where you can find me. I used to have a profile there. I went by Daintydecker. I couldn’t get into my account because it was so old, so I had to make a new one. I’m starting all over. But I’m thinking, I might just start designing tags again. I have already started collecting new ones! In fact, the tag I’m using below is a brand new one that I just got tonight!
This year, instead of running through the alphabet, which by the way, I’ve never made it through all of the way, I thought it would be fun to go through the letters of my name.
