I am an intern for A Larry Ross Communications, and have been referred to your blog as a popular internet opinion site. ALRC is a full-service media and public relations agency focusing on bridging the gap between faith and culture. We would love to include you on our list of bloggers to receive information about available book review copies so you could read and review them for your website. If you are interested you can e-mail me at with your contact information and we will gladly add you to our list. Please feel free to visit our website at for more information about who we are and what we do, and thank you for your consideration.

If you are interested in being included in our list of bloggers for book reviews, we are currently representing Joni Lamb, author of “Surrender All,” in which she shares the message of discovering the amazing journey God intended and fashioned for each of us. Through simply offering control to the One who created us, we can learn the peace that comes through trusting God.

Joni Lamb is co-founder and vice president, along with her husband, President and CEO Marcus Lamb, of Daystar Television Network, the fastest growing Christian network in the world. She is executive producer and host of “JONI,” a talk show addressing relevant Godly issues for today’s complex problems, and co-hosts “Celebration” with Marcus. She released her debut book, “Surrender All,” in late 2008. In addition, she is full-time wife to Marcus and mom to three children, which she considers her foremost and greatest accomplishment.

We would like to send you a free copy of “Surrender All” in return for a 300-word, honest review of the book. If possible, we request this review be posted between June 29-July 10. If you are interested but the post date is a problem, please let us know. To receive and review the book, please reply to this e-mail with your mailing address, and we will send a copy to you as soon as possible.

Thanks again,

Dache Johnson

I have a budding preacher/evanglist too.....talks people's ear off as well....LOL. He also has sensory issues.and sever allergies...which effect his eating and sets him apart at school as the chicken nugget boy caue that is all he will take to lunch.....and I'd push the issue if he weren't in a point......because at least he is eating SOMETHING. He is 8.5 years old and the size of a 5 year old...due to well....genetics...LOL. But he is bright and articulate and can be off putting when he asks someone if they have listened to the Holy Spirit.....LOL. When he was younger he'd in a waiting room for example....drop what he was doing an pray for whichever family member it was needed to see the dr. He can be brave and timid all at the same time....but he is so vibrant.....that's the only way I know to describe it...he lives life with joy and gusto...he draws people to him...thus the evangelist part......LOL. But it is not every kid...that will cry out to the Lord for 45 min to hear his voice......and his friends think he is a bit weird...but are strangely drawn to him...LOL
