I'm totally blessed by reading this book. It emphasises the authority and the power of my spoken blessings. But one thing is lacking is that it doesn't guide me of the "how to"... And I found a book that is helpful. "365 Prophetic Promises & Blessings for Your Children" by Sebastian S. - helping a busy mom like me who sometimes just don't know how to express my spoken blessing to bless the children.

The size of this book is similar to the book prayer of Jabez (super tiny) except thinner and wasn't saying anything until you got to the last 5 pages where it gave you scriptures to recite.

I could not understand why the book was so inexpensive until i received it and realized that even the amount i spent was too much for such a empty book. If people can make money writing nothing, maybe i should write a book on nothing and sell a book of blank pages. But then that would be a journal.

There is no doubt in my mind that words do matter. A person can crush or heal another’s spirit with what they say. Our words have lasing impact for good or great harm.

The Bible says: “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” 

Proverbs 18:21

That said I believe Bill Gothard’s legacy will be remembered as wolf in sheep’s clothing, a cult persona, and a deeply disturbed single man who abused women over the course of decades of his “ministry”. Bill Gothard is a big proponent of groupthink, a classic narcissist, and loves the praise of men. He is easily the most attractive to those who have a natural bent towards legalism, rules, control, and judgmental behavior.

To anyone reading this review. Do not get your family involved in this spiritually abusive organization. In my estimation IBLP and ATI are part of a cult formerly lead by Bill Gothard. David Henke in 1993 said Bill Gothard's teachings promoted mind control, spiritual abuse, legalism, and shaming.

It was during this first scandal that Bill Gothard developed the concept of "Giving only a good report," as taught in the 1976 publication Rediscovering A Forgotten Truth, which twisted the teaching of Matthew 18:15-19 to silence staff and volunteers in order to cover up the growing IBYC sex scandal.

In 1980 Steve Gothard was accused and confessed of having sexual relations with 7 different women with the full knowledge of Bill Gothard. Bill Gothard first developed the teaching on "never give a bad report" or "Defilement of listening to an evil report," as published in 1981.

T would highly recommend this book to anyone. It should be read over many times. It helps to understand many of the hurts in our lives and what to do about it. We need to realize the power of words and their effect for blessing or cursing.I where many are suffering from being cursed.You see the need for people to be blessed. God's power is shown even over the unsaved to change hearts and lives.I see the to pray for christians to pray for a blessing on their children for wisdom and understanding and to do God's will and for God to bless them from harm.This needs to make us to make us more aware of the hurts of others and the reason sometime for their actions.We to be more of the needs of others and of the power of just a few words.Theme

The teaching in this book have been a great help to my family! Most every night for the past 3 years we have spoken verbal blessings over our children at bedtime. Our children have even occasionally asked to be able to bless us. I have even seen the blessings I have prayed over my wife come true. This has become a wonderful new part of our family's life.

Living in a world where we are programmed to curse someone rather than bless them, well, this book just makes sense. No one can go wrong in blessing someone, so I tried it! Been blessing where I would otherwise badmouth someone and it works, I have found not only favorable results from the person being blessed but also have experienced it myself.

The author conveys a concept which is much needed in the world we live in today. It is so easy to be offended and just blast people whether to their faces or behind their backs. He encourages forgiveness even in the face of valid offenses and talks about the benefits to the one offended. I think it may appear too simple to some but if you are a praying person and you want to move on with your life it will help. I liked it and recommend it
