My Thoughts-
“Persecuted” By Robin Parrish- based on a Daniel Lusko Film

Persecuted” was an extremely intense book based after a movie coming out on July 18th, 2014. After reading this book I can’t wait to watch this movie.

John Luther is a highly looked at Christian Preacher, thousands upon thousands watch him on TV and visit his ministry. Even men in Government power know him, so when it comes time for a new Bill to be passed they try to use him to get the support. The issue is this Bill would make all religions equal, meaning if you’re a Christian the Jews have to allow you to preach in their synagog, or if you’re a Muslim you have the right to preach in a Catholic church and so forth. The US government is trying to take over the religious realm in the world with this new Bill. John does not agree with this Bill and refuses to support it. This made a few people extremely made and they set him up to look like a killer and put him and his family in danger. John must find out who is doing this and why before it’s too late and before more people he loves is in danger.

As I mentioned before, this book was intense. You weren’t sure to who to trust, you didn’t know if John would find the truth before he got killed, you weren’t even sure if his family would be ok. At times the story got so intense I had to put it down and focus on other things. I think part of why it affected me was this story could possibly come true, and in the near future. I’m not scared, God will win in the end, even if we as Christians have to face some very trying times.

I hope to go see this movie this weekend. The author did amazing as putting in details, I felt like I could see the images already.

ENERGYbits Review, plus get a 10% discount on your order!!


My Thoughts-
Every since I’ve been back on my feet, running and working out, I’ve been looking for a product to help me with my energy. I’ve heard about ENERGYBits from a few of my fitness friends and wanted to try them out. So when I was chosen as a blog to get to review them I was extremely excited.

ENERGYbits “have the highest concentration of protein in the world, all in amino acid form which delivers a steady stream of energy without sugar, caffeine, chemicals or stomach distress. Even better, ENERGYbits® are the only protein in the world that also contain natural antioxidants and Omega 3 which reduce muscle inflammation, iron which prevents fatigue, chlorophyll which builds the immune system and electrolytes which replenish mineral imbalances.”

That statement above is one that really had me interested in trying these “bits” out. It’s not just a regular energy pill, it’s also recover and prevents the crash a lot of other energy pills give.

I was given enough ENERGYbits to test them out twice. You take 30 tab (by swallowing) 10-15 minutes before your workout. I found the smell to be a bit like our fish food but since I wasn’t chewing them it didn’t bother me too much. I also found that swallowing 30 pills was a lot to take, however if you take 5-10 at a time and take all 30 in batches it’s much easier.

Not on to the good stuff. I LOVE these!! The day before I took the ENERGYbits tabs I went for a run but only had enough endurance to run for 2 minutes at a time with a 3 minute break in between. The next day I took the 30 tabs and was able to run for 5 minutes at a time with only a 2 minute break in between, I also upped my speed from 5.0 to 5.5!! It felt great. Then right after that i went and did weights for my arms. I felt like I could go on for a long time at the gym. Afterwards I didn’t have any crash, it wore off slowly and I didn’t notice a sluggishness some get after an energy pill wears off.


My plan is to hopefully purchase a larger bag of the ENERGYbits and use them on gym days and on run days. I really felt a difference and I can see it being helpful in reaching my health and fitness goals. I would recommend this product to anyone who has a busy lifestyle or needs the boost in the gym.
