Designed for Relationship by T.J. MacLeslie Virtual Book Tour Highlights

Designed for Relationship cover

Mankind has always struggled with the big questions: Why are we here? What is life all about? The search for answers has led in many directions, not all of them helpful. In this age, we are inundated with information, but this flood of knowledge has not necessarily produced wisdom. We find answers to the really important questions as elusive as ever.

It really is all about relationship! This is the open secret, hidden in plain sight all along.


In Designed for Relationship, author T.J. MacLeslie’s discussion on the Trinity gave me pause. He goes back to Genesis to remind the reader that God exists as a “Them as much as a Him.” In the creation story from Genesis 1:26 it says, “Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness;’…” I In all the years I have read and reread the Creation story, I missed God’s reference to the Godhead here. And now I wonder how much else I might have missed.

Cheryl’s Christian Book Connection first chapter review

What is one thing you hope readers will take away from this book?

I hope that they will take away a renewed hope and desire for a genuine relationship with God, as well as some tools to help them on their search. My own search has been somewhat torturous and winding, and I hope that others can learn from my gleanings and save themselves some pain along their way to finding God and becoming all that He has created them to be.

Designed for Relationship invites you to rediscover the relational nature of God and humanity in two parts: Part One examines ancient truths in the Bible to renew our vision of God and humanity; Part Two applies these truths to our lives, using The Five Circles, a practical tool to understand what it means to be human and providing a framework for growth. All of which has come as a result of my own search for God in the confusion and chaos of the real world.

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Enhancing Sexual Desire

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Enhancing Sexual Desire
Authors: Rachel Greene Baldino and Judy Ford
Publisher: Alpha (Penguin)
Reviewed by: Dorothy Thompson

Who doesn’t want to enhance their sexual desire?  Who wouldn’t want to make their sexual relationships top priority?  Who wouldn’t want to reawaken their sexuality?

Stop with the questions.  Now we can find the answers to those questions and lots, lots more in Rachel Greene Baldino and Judy Ford’s latest self-help book for those looking for strategies to boost their sexual desire, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Enhancing Sexual Desire (Penguin). 

I throughly enjoyed this book because as a baby boomer who has seen better days in the romance area, romps in the bedroom tend to get put on the back burner.  As more time goes on, you only get buried in that long dark hole and sometimes it’s really hard to find that intimacy you once shared with your loved one.

After reading Rachel and Judy’s book, my sex life has greatly improved because they have shown me steps to take to change bad habits and rejuvenate that tired, sagging libido.

Inside you’ll find tips for successfully navigating the six stages of love relationships.  You’ll also find satisfying suggestions that will help you get back in touch with your sensuality.  And, you’ll also find ways to spice up your sex life and discover your personal intimacy style.

This is a very thorough how-to manual to feel passionate again with your loved one and who wouldn’t want that? 

It’s wonderful to feel passionate again!  I highly recommend The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Enhancing Sexual Desire to keep those love fires burning!
