BOOK REVIEW: Jam Sandwich: The Key To Ultimate Happiness by T.C. Mosia

Happiness is more than a mood; it is an underlying spiritual state upon which our moods are based. Most self-help advice on happiness will deal with our moods, which is more like dealing with the symptoms of an underlying sickness, rather than with the sickness itself, hence why the impact is always short-lived.
Happiness is for the spirit what good health is for the body - it is a fundamental restoration of a sickly spiritual condition. Once an unhealthy spirit has been healed, the negative moods and emotions will self-correct. In order to achieve true and long-lasting happiness, our spirits need to be in a healthy state.
The road to where our true happiness lies is unique to us. We do not have to travel anyone's path. The purpose of this book is to help the reader find their own unique path. It reveals principles and truths upon which each of us can discover their own personal route to spiritual health and happiness.

Because the formula proposed in this book is based on a scientific assessment of how the physical world works, and thus how the system we commonly refer to as "human" works, it is guaranteed to work for anyone, every time without fail.



Happiness always seemed elusive, so seeing Jam Sandwich I thought hmm…
I will say Jam sandwich is a thought-provoking read. T.C. Mosia makes your mind think deeper than you ever thought. He offers his thoughts and opinions in a form of a kind of step by step guide, yet in the end, it is all up to our choosing if we want to do the work to achieve our own personal happiness.
Mosia does throw a lot of God into his guide. Being spiritual I did not mind, though at times I felt it was a little preachy. Still, I learned from his passionate advice. If you like a thought-provoking read that really gets your searching yourself, your soul, your life Jam Sandwich can provide. Overall a good read.


T.C. Mosia is a software developer, pencil artist, graphic designer, philanthropist, teacher, founder of Christ's Goodworks Foundation, and author of the book Jam Sandwich ( He graduated with a BSc.

BOOK REVIEW: Butterfly Hill (A Matthy’s Rossouw Pursuit Book 2) by Brendan Le Grange

Seven hundred years ago a Dynasty died, how far will China go to keep it dead?
Hiko Shimuzu is not a nice man, but he is ingenious. Ingenious enough to find a lost artifact capable of catalyzing a revolution in China? Maybe. And that's close enough to draw the attention of powerful forces that won't hesitate to kill to keep their secrets safe. Meanwhile, Matthys Rossouw is in hot pursuit, unaware of the full scale of the danger he faces.

Butterfly Hill is the exciting follow-up to Drachen. Set in the hills above Hong Kong's Lantau Island, it's another high-stakes game of cat and mouse that races towards an explosive conclusion.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        AVAILABLE AT AMAZON


Discovering that I picked up book 2 made me a bit concerned, but Le Grange does a nice recap for you then thrusts you into his world of action. Hiko is hunting an ancient artifact while Matthy’s is hunting him. Little do they know they are both being hunted by something much bigger. Le Grange writing is fast-paced leaving you gripping on every word he writes let alone every page.

His characters are wickedly well written changing within the flow of the story, and according to the events that happen in the book. No character is the same character at the end. Especially Hiko, he was like this anti-Indiana Jones anti-hero at the beginning of the book. At the end who he is, is questionable as we hope for book 3 to find out. If you like action pack reading filled with espionage then Butterfly Hill is a book you must grab.


Brendan le Grange lives in Hong Kong with his beautiful wife and daughters, writing high-paced action thrillers when his day job allows. Luckily, that day job also allows him to travel to the exotic locales in which his books are set.

BOOK REVIEW: Devyn Rose, The Innkeepers Daughter: A Romance Novella by Ronnda Eileen Henry

A sweet romantic adventure set in the fantasy world of the medieval-like island continent of Penruddock. Devyn Rose has just completed her training as a scribe and returns home eager to see her family, from whom she's been separated for several years. Two strangers arrive at her father's inn and are hired to work there. No one knows the real reason they have come, and Devyn Rose has no idea that her life may be in danger.



Devyn Rose is a sweet tale, but we do not meet her till a little further into the book. I found it a bit off-putting since the book is titled “Devyn Rose”, I thought the whole book would be her story. The setup is these servants are out on a picnic. They are all couples and the oldest in the group tells his dream of creating a little village in the area they are picnicking in and his dream of having an Inn, and the others could have their dream place at the village too. They all agree and with the Kings approval, it gets built. Soon they all marry to have children, then their children have children, thus enters Devyn Rose and her story then begins.

As with all of Henry’s heroines, Devyn Rose is a strong empowered woman of her time, yet it’s that strong will that gets her tangled up in danger that nearly ends her life. This is due to the two shady strangers that have come to work at her Father’s Inn. The end result is nothing like you’d think.

Overall Devyn Rose is the perfect book to read on a Sunday afternoon curled up in your favorite chair with a nice warm cup of coffee beside you. 


Ronnda Eileen Henry is originally from Michigan and was raised in California and Virginia. She read a lot of history, biography, science fiction, and Regency romances when she was young, and her two favorite authors are Jane Austen and Aleksandra Layland. She has the heart of a romantic and believes romance is for people of any age. Sweet romance is her favorite, whether it's for a teenager or a person in middle age.
Retired now, she lives in Florida.

BOOK REVIEW: Beauty Redefined: How to Feel Authentically Beautiful in Today's World By Seline Shenoy

In our beauty-obsessed culture, women have become accustomed to using the standards set by society and the media as a barometer to measure their own worth. They perpetually wonder where they stand on the attractiveness continuum and question everything about their outward appearances, from their skin color to their waistline, to their fashion sense. They keep asking themselves, "Am I good enough? Do I matter? Will others love and accept me for who I am?" Beauty Redefined explores this critical issue by looking at beauty from a cultural, biological and historical perspective and provides solutions on what we can do on a collective and individual level to redefine what it means to be a beautiful woman. By reading this book, you'll be convinced that your voice matters and you'll feel empowered to make your own unique mark in the world, no matter what your size, shape, color or ethnic background is. You'll learn how to love yourself (warts and all!) and embrace every unique aspect of your being and use it to make the world a better place.



Beauty Redefined is a feel-good book that I think every woman should have on her bookshelf. It’s a book you can pick up when you are feeling down on yourself to make you smile, be empowered and remember who you are, which is beautiful.

Shenoy writes in an insightful, conversational tone making this book an attentive read while we are educated and advised all in one. I also think the title is wrong. Shenoy guides us not on how to feel beautiful, but to bring out the beauty that always has been inside each one of us. I thank Shenoy for helping me remember.
