    Brief Summary When to Walk Away: Finding Freedom from Toxic People. Your life's calling is too important to let toxic people take it away.  When to Walk Away draws from biblical and modern stories to equip you to handle toxic people in your life and live true to your God-given purpose.  As Christians, we often feel the guilt and responsibility of meeting the needs of unhealthy people in our lives. Whether a sibling, parent, spouse, coworker, or friend, toxic people frequently seek to frustrate our life's calling.

It's only when we learn to say no to bad patterns that we can say yes to the good work God has planned for us.  Drawing from years serving as a pastor, Gary Thomas (bestselling author of Sacred Marriage) looks at biblical examples from the lives of Jesus, Paul, and Nehemiah to give you insightful, biblical takeaways that you can apply right away. You'll discover how to: Learn the difference between difficult people and toxic people Find refuge in God when you feel under attack Discern when to walk away from a toxic situation Keep a tender heart even in unhealthy relationships Grow your inner strength and invest in reliable people We can't let others steal our joy or our mission.

    Ksh 1899

    Brief Summary It's Not Supposed to Be This Way: Finding Unexpected Strength When Disappointments Leave You Shattered. What do you do when God’s timing seems questionable, His lack of intervention hurtful, and His promises doubtful? Life often looks so very different than we hoped or expected. Some events may simply catch us off guard for a moment, but others shatter us completely. We feel disappointed and disillusioned, and we quietly start to wonder about the reality of God’s goodness. Lysa TerKeurst understands this deeply. But she's also discovered that our disappointments can be the divine appointments our souls need to radically encounter God. In It's Not Supposed to Be This Way, Lysa invites us into her own journey of faith and, with grit, vulnerability, and honest humor, helps us to: Stop being pulled into the anxiety of disappointment by discovering how to better process unmet expectations and other painful situations. Train ourselves to recognize the three strategies of the enemy so we can stand strong and persevere through unsettling relationships and uncertain outcomes. Discover the secret of being steadfast and not panicking when God actually does give us more than we can handle. Shift our suspicion that God is cruel or unfair to the biblical assurance that God is protecting and preparing us. Know how to encourage a friend and help her navigate hard realities with real help from God's truth.

It evolves around the life of a once poor young village orphan escalating to a twice rich matured city dweller Amanda. Her entire life was synchronized with torrents of pain, sickness, anger, grief/death, disappointment, conflict/tension, reconciliation and piety.

She is unsure whether the dancing competition which didn’t favor her ushered a new dawn which is to be a dim later, or whether Ronny is really genuine to offer money after losing the competition, or what best is to follow Susan her mother’s advice of prioritizing school before advancing into love affairs or her instincts which seemed to dominate only little does she know that everything has its own time and season.

  • A Celebrity Chef in Africa by Eamon Mullan

    A Celebrity Chef in Africa by Eamon Mullan

    Ksh 2899

    Brief Summary Eamon’s book is called, Food for the Famous: A Celebrity Chef in Africa. Yes, in his times – travelling and working across different countries, but particularly in Kenya – he has cooked for many celebrities. And, a unique thing about the autobiography is the final part, which is a collection of 18 recipes he has served to people – an amazing group that includes Queen Elizabeth, Michael Caine and Robert Redford. His many years at the Norfolk, where he was the executive chef and food and beveridge director, must have been the highpoint of his career. He must feel very proud, too, about the superb Pango Restaurant he created at the Fairview. But it was at the Norfolk that he met – and cooked for – most of his celebrities. One of the guests staying there the night of the bombing was Paul Simon, of Simon and Garfunkel fame. And over the years there were so many more; among them, in addition to the three I have mentioned above, there was Richard Burton (the great actor not the explorer!) the singer Adam Faith, the footballer Pele, the actress Meryl Streep, the actor Ben Cross, the cricketer David Gower and the racing driver Jackie Stewart. Eamon’s brief references to them are fascinating – the way he made a special soup for Michael Cain after he had complained, for example, or his judgement that Pele was “such a gentleman” and David Gower “humble and down-to-earth.” Perhaps I should jump ahead and tell you about a couple of the “celebrity recipes.”

  • Blink by Malcolm Gladwell

    Blink by Malcolm Gladwell

    Ksh 999

    Brief Summary Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking. Drawing on cutting-edge neuroscience and psychology and displaying all of the brilliance that made The Tipping Point a classic, Blink changes the way you'll understand every decision you make. Never again will you think about thinking the same way. Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant - in the blink of an eye - that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept? Why do some people follow their instincts and win, while others end up stumbling into error? How do our brains really work - in the office, in the classroom, in the kitchen, and in the bedroom? And why are the best decisions often those that are impossible to explain to others? In Blink we meet the psychologist who has learned to predict whether a marriage will last, based on a few minutes of observing a couple; the tennis coach who knows when a player will double-fault before the racket even makes contact with the ball; the antiquities experts who recognize a fake at a glance. Here, too, are great failures of "blink": the election of Warren Harding; "New Coke"; and the shooting of Amadou Diallo by police. Blink reveals that great decision makers aren't those who process the most information or spend the most time deliberating, but those who have perfected the art of "thin-slicing" - filtering the very few factors that matter from an overwhelming number of variables.

    Ksh 1499

    Brief Summary After decades of preaching, teaching, and counseling, influential Christian leader A.R. Bernard reveals the four qualities women want in a man—qualities that make for a satisfying and happy relationship. As a longtime pastor of a big-city church, A.R. Bernard has witnessed couples in every stage of life. He’s been with them as they experienced dizzying joys, unspeakable tragedies, and everything in between. As men and women have come to Bernard for spiritual counseling and advice, he’s learned patterns of behavior that are repeated time and again. After almost four decades of preaching, teaching, and counseling, he’s seen that while every situation is unique, people’s behaviors and consequences are amazingly consistent. With this in mind, Bernard has developed a simple system for understanding how couples relate to each other. Maturity, decisiveness, consistency, and strength—these are the four things women want and need most from a man. In his book, Bernard teaches readers how to identify and cultivate these traits toward a happy and long-lasting relationship—one built to weather any storm.
