Just Like That Book Summary :

Syrah Ardani tried independence—but the call of the Napa Valley hills and rolling vineyards of her family's winery have brought her home again. She is content with her ordered world until she learns that her father's feckless management has put Ardani Vineyards into receivership. Corporate turnaround specialist Toni Blanchard's arrival is preceded by tales of her slash-and-burn techniques. Determined to meet this soulless corporate raider head on, Syrah proudly prepares to do battle for her home and family business. Toni has reason to retreat from a high-pressure Manhattan lifestyle, not the least of which is a bitter break up. She's been told that Syrah Ardani is attractive and single, but Toni never mixes business and pleasure. Creditors clamor for a quick sale and payment. The beautiful—and hostile—Syrah wants Toni off her land and out of her life. Their clashes smolder with distrust and resentment, but also threaten to light a completely different kind of fire. Most dangerous of all is the one thing Toni can't control—the way her heart reacts when Syrah looks at her...just like that.

Just Like That Labels Book Summary :

The author coined the phrase "ChristiANTity" and explores an analogy between ants and people stating that while ants are no bigger than a paperclip, these insects are unique, social, live in colonies, and most importantly, each one has a very specific job. Everyone has the ability to make a difference in the world no matter how small and insignificant you may feel at the time. The field of psychology shows that labeling someone often changes that person's belief about themselves as well as their very essence. As her story unfolds, we are able to see numerous examples where the author was searching for a closer relationship with God and was asking people in authority for leadership and guidance, and when asking questions about the plan of salvation, she was often dismissed with the Christian cliché "Either you are or you aren't" regarding salvation. The author takes us on her journey to find grace, forgiveness, and a sense of purpose in a world full of people dishing out labels but never being willing to stop and find out why she was struggling because it is often easy to say "I'll pray for you" and not get our hands dirty with someone's drama. This story offers hope and encouragement to others to not give up despite their trials and tribulations. The author openly shares her personal experiences associated with the damaging effects of labeling and the stigma associated with receiving a mental health diagnosis, divorce, and the loss of a child. And throughout her story, we are able to feel her struggle to find a closer relationship with God. The more we focus on our accomplishments and successes in life, the less room we will have for self-defeating thoughts.

Won t He Do It God Can Do It Just Like That Book Summary :

This book is not for everyone. It is important that I say that because there is a notion that we are monolithic and everyone has to agree. This book is for those who know who HE is. I am watching Deon Cole who is an actor on the show Black’ish and a comedian. He was doing his stand up and he was joking about Black folk saying, “Won’t He do it!”. During the show he asked a white attendee who was “HE” and the boy didn’t know. Brilliantly, he explained to the white doy who “HE” he was and told him to reply appropriately. When Black people hear ``Won't He do it”, immediately they reply “YES HE WILL!”. Cole explained this to the white gentlemen, and spoke into the mic and said, “Won't HE do it?” and the white man replied “YES HE WILL!”. The audience laughed and applauded. Therefore, this book is for those who know who HE is. This book is for those who know how to reply, “YES HE WILL!”. More importantly, this book is for those who want to know who HE is and why is that. HE to many people is God. Not that God has to be a man or masuciline but God as the Ultimate authority. The authority in which Mom would say, “Wait until you Daddy gets home.” He is that authoritative figure that would make things wrong right. He is a Creator, and the God of the Universe and God of all Gods. Won’t HE do it is a phrase born out of the expericince of the African American Church. The African American Church is the parent of the current Church worship and style in America. Enslaved African created their own worship, culture, and fellowship that has stood the test of time.

Just Like You Book Summary :

”[A] charming, funny, touching, and relevant comedy.” —The Boston Globe “A provocative yet sweet romantic comedy.” —People, Best of Fall 2020 This warm, wise, highly entertaining twenty-first century love story is about what happens when the person who makes you happiest is someone you never expected Lucy used to handle her adult romantic life according to the script she’d been handed. She met a guy just like herself: same age, same background, same hopes and dreams; they got married and started a family. Too bad he made her miserable. Now, two decades later, she’s a nearly divorced, forty-one-year-old schoolteacher with two school-aged sons, and there is no script anymore. So when she meets Joseph, she isn’t exactly looking for love—she’s more in the market for a babysitter. Joseph is twenty-two, living at home with his mother, and working several jobs, including the butcher counter where he and Lucy meet. It’s not a match anyone one could have predicted. He’s of a different class, a different culture, and a different generation. But sometimes it turns out that the person who can make you happiest is the one you least expect, though it can take some maneuvering to see it through. Just Like You is a brilliantly observed, tender, but also brutally funny new novel that gets to the heart of what it means to fall surprisingly and headlong in love with the best possible person—someone you didn’t see coming.
