Review: He Kan’t Kill Your Future

He Kan't Kill Your FutureHe Kan’t Kill Your Future by Sharquent Webster
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“He Kan’t Kill Your Future” by Sharquent Webster was very moving…it is one of the best books I have read in a while of an account that’s true, emotional and so able to affect other people’s lives…as it is the life story of Ms. Webster, she transforms her reader back through her journey, starting with her childhood. Her father left her mother at an early age, and there was ten children total. As a result, not only did her mother have this huge responsibility to bear on her own, but she seemed to have a break-down of her own while doing it.

As a result, the streets raised Sharquent, and they were her family. They provided for her the love she wasn’t receiving at home, and, as most that live on the streets, she, somewhat, became part of the streets and took what they had to offer. She became addicted to PCP and crack, had three pregnancies in the process, and, eventually found herself wanting to get off of drugs more than anything. She was tired, her body was wore out, and she didn’t want what the streets had to offer anymore.

But, most importantly, she realized that Jesus loved her. He wanted better for her life, and, because of this, more than anything, she wanted to live for Him.

“He Kan’t Kill Your Future” is a wonderful autobiographical account of a young woman whose life started out not so good, but ended up wonderful. It wasn’t easy, but she decided to surrender her all to Jesus, and He took care of everything else from there. Personally, I really appreciate Ms. Webster writing and sharing this part of her life. I can just imagine how difficult it was, but I really believe that her story will touch someone’s life.

I give it 5 stars.

Review: A Bright New Morning: An American Story

A Bright New Morning: An American StoryA Bright New Morning: An American Story by Phil Mitchell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

“A Bright New Morning: An American Story” by Phil Mitchell was okay…bringing a patriotic message, Mitchell discusses, throughout the book, his home state of Chicago, his beginnings, and the people that he has met while working as a trolley driver. While his message was important, to be honest, I did have some difficulties while trying to complete this book. Aside from the grammatical errors, Mitchell never fully completes any thought he brings up…many parts are scattered around, and even though some points that are presented hold validity, they are not completely explained.

Mitchell also relays to the reader that he is a musician, and he has written songs that relate to the message that he is desperately trying to spread, that it’s time for America to come back together, and we all need to work in unity to achieve this goal. His music does support his effort…I previewed the songs that were on his album, “America, ” and they were pretty good.

Overall, Mitchell has a strong message, a message that needs to be heard. And, should he decide to re-publish his book, I would strongly suggest an in-depth revision to tie up any loose ends that are still hanging. If he decides to go that route, I believe the revised copy along with his album will get him steps closer to the goal in which he is trying to acheive.

I give it 3 stars(the book was okay, but his music bumped the stars up a notch.)
