Christian Author, Writer, Robert LaBarge

Crazy blogs n stuff presents a wonderful new book release ~ Diary of a Charismatic: Essays on the Spirit Filled Life by Robert LaBarge offers insight into his journey and what being a Spirit-filled believer looks like.  

Robert LaBarge shares about his coming to salvation in Jesus Christ brought about by the 1970’s Charismatic Renewal movement that impacted the Catholic Church and his entire family.  

His personal journey is marked by finding true love in Jesus as Lord and being powerfully touched by what is known as the Father’s Love.  One will find his book touching, powerful and life-changing as the author speaks with candor and Biblical wisdom that make living a Spirit-filled life easily understandable and yet, accessible to all.

With each short writing the author relates Scripture and presents Biblical teaching to many aspects of the Kingdom that shed light on life in the Spirit. Beginning on being born from above and the moving of the Holy Spirit and outpourings around the world, document the Charismatic movement and speak on such subjects as: salvation, Jesus as Lord, trusting in God, the grace of God, as well as the spiritual gifts that were indicative of this movement.  Offering encouragement and guidance into how to receive the gift of tongues also brings further discussion on other gifts such as: the gift of prophecy, discernment of spirits and deliverance, and gifts of healing that offer readers wisdom.  With candor, and some writings that share some light humor, this book will assist readers in coming to know Jesus that brings a deeper understanding of what being filled by the Holy Spirit means Biblically and experientially.

What is great about this book is that the author offers a true Biblical perspective of the Charismatic movement for those that doubt and gives readers knowledge that the focus of that movement is really understanding that Jesus IS Lord – Lord of Your Life, coupled with coming to know Him in intimate relationship. He condemns the idea that the Spirit-filled life is emotionalism conjured up to make one feel good, great worship, etc., as some might think. And also shares that there is available from On High a Baptism in the Holy Spirit that continues today, citing quick historical evidence of modern-day Acts signs and wonders. Thus, his point remains steadfast that signs and wonders did not end with the last apostle; they are evident in the Church throughout history.

Next, the author makes a fantastic statement that describes what life in Christ is meant to be that I have to include (p.11), “Modern Pentecost is about surrendering our souls to everything that the Father desires for us. It is about us being weak and Him being strong and the Holy Spirit leading us in our weakness to do strong things. It is about faith that is alive, hope in the midst of the worries of this world and learning to love all those with whom we share this earthly soil. And it is about trusting Him, that when we yield our heads and our hearts, our feet, hands and tongue, that He knows who we are and can do all He has promised.”

An Incredible Love Story of Redemption and Restoration

Captivating, encouraging and inspiring, this book reveals the great love Jesus has and that He never left her, nor her families’ side ~ even for a moment. Redeemed to Live! is one of those amazing true-life testimonies of tragic loss that brings the reality of Heaven and life beyond this Earth into better perspective. 10.0 stars...

Redeemed to Live! by Debi Capito-Young shares an incredible love story of redemption and restoration of the life and family of Debi Capito-Young.

Redeemed to Live!

 A Northwest country girl at heart, Debi grew up Washington State in a strong Christian family that gave her a solid foundation with Jesus. As an adult, tragedy struck, and her 10 year- old daughter was suddenly gone in a tragic accident without saying good-bye. Debi retells the journey of heartbreak and loss from that fateful day in October that changed everything. 

Shattering and heart-wrenching, this book will grab your heart from the beginning as she describes the events that led up to a loss so great, that it took her down a road of despair and hopelessness from which she thought there would be no end. Revealing that broken dreams and shattered lives can be rebuilt again, this book deals with such subjects as: grief, loss, hopelessness, despair and gives readers hope through the restoring and redeeming love of Jesus.

Through dreams and visions, encounters with the Father’s love and the joy of the Lord, her family was brought back to life after that tragic day in October. 

Her journey brings readers the reality of God’s presence, His heavy transforming glory and gives insight on how to become unstuck that brought Debi and her family hope, ministry and purpose. Her message is about finding that abundant life that Jesus speaks about in John 10:10 and leading others into that same joy to get them unstuck from wherever they may find themselves. 

Real and raw emotions flourish from the beginning, and chapter two, coupled with the following chapters highlight “golden nuggets”, a trip to the Toronto Blessing in Canada and much more that changed her families’ lives. Along this path the author gives awe-inspiring accounts of the supernatural, turning hearts to Jesus. Jesus, angels, coupled with dreams and encounters kept her alive and sane, and the Holy Spirittransformed both her and her husband, catapulting them into ministry.

From this book readers gain a better understanding of the warfare that is waged here on Earth. Although tragic, her journey is shared with a genuine heart and without embellishment. 

As you will learn, Heaven is more real than you ever thought, God is closer than you ever thought and those who find this abundant life in Jesus are made alive again in Him. This is an amazing story of RESTORATION. Highly recommended for anyone who has suffered any tragic loss in their life and for those that need help getting back on track to living again. The encounters of the supernatural, coupled with encouragement and Biblical wisdom, will help others to have hope again, knowing that Jesus is our Comforter, our Redeemer and very much a part of all of our lives! Redeemed to Live! by Debi Capito-Young is available at Amazon and in Kindle.

Set Free From Sin

As a member of the human race, you were born a slave to sin. It is far easier to do something wrong, because it is an effort to do something right. Christ set you free from this bondage by removing the guilt of sin, which immediately released you from the slavery of sin. 

After that, it became a choice when you did something wrong. Romans 6 shows you have been set free from sin: 6 Knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. 8 And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. 22 But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.   

The Enemy Revealed, Exposing the Myth

This is an important book for our society and comes highly recommended to every parent that stands for righteousness, who desires an America that embraces our Founding Fathers’ vision of America and to those parents that want to see strong Christian families to become the majority again. ~ CBM

Abduction: How Liberalism Steals our Children’s Hearts and Minds by Steven Feazel and Dr. Carol M. Swain reveals an intriguing read that will shock you. Exposing the deception posed as “Liberalism” that is infiltrating our educational system, media, and political arenas, the authors shed light on the effect of this agenda upon our future generation and the youth of America. This sway is far from God and godly principles, as the book brings readers up-to-date of the trends of our American culture that have led us into Liberalism, they candidly reveal the undertow that is sweeping across our culture and country. Consequently, more and more of society is swinging to the far Left that brings a modernized, humanistic and secular worldview that is currently leading our innocent children (and society) as a whole, down a corrupt path. Disguised as Liberalism (and known as “The New Morality”), this has become the Christian faith’s new enemy. The acceptance of this agenda has become so entrenched in our society, the authors have written a book to arm parents and to announce that it’s time to fight for our future generations before it’s too late. 

This new mindset known as The New Morality, as the authors give accounts of events and statistics, state that Liberalism is destabilizing the family and future generations through the propagation of lies, some subtle in degrees, that degrade society and is leading our youth to make wrong choices apart from God. Historically, this path of destruction sways far from biblical truth and masquerades that evil is in fact “good”, and if it feels right, do it. Revealing agendas of certain institutions in the educational system, under the guise of Liberalism and all for political gain, this book brings a deeper insight into a mindset that steals our children’s hearts and minds away from the truth.

Thus, as this well-researched book explains, the authors sound the alarm to all parents to guard their children more actively ~ in all arenas, not just at home. Providing parents with practical application and knowledge that will help protect children from becoming secularized, that also brings understanding to our youth of why an embrace of a Christian perspective, values and morals matters in life. 

With such chapters as: The Enemy Revealed, Exposing the Myth, Public Schools - Ground Zero, Sexy Kids, Music Hits a Sour Note, Big Screen-Little Value, Invader in a Box, Children Stolen and Gone, Higher Learning and Lower Values, Black Robes Bring Dark Days, and Fighting Back, parents and future generations are given hope and the tools to fight this onslaught of worldwide secularism.

The Power of God's Free Gift of Grace

Romans 3:24 Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.  It’s totally impossible for any of you to be worthy of redemption, because in the eyes of the Lord, all your righteousness is as filthy rags, Isaiah 64:6.  

The basis for self-righteousness has been removed. You receive redemption because of God’s divine favor, which is freely given to all who believe.  God even gives you the type of faith needed to receive salvation, see Ephesians 2:8,9. He gives you the ability to live for Him, providing you depend on His Word and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.  

You are not to try to live a Christian life, but remember that the Holy Spirit enables you to accomplish this.  The more you permeate your spirit with the Word of God, the easier it is to live for Him.  Spend time in His Word today, asking Him to direct you to what to read.  Next apply His word to your life, expecting Him to honor His promises.

Shining For God


Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16 

Most of you have seen the flashing lights of a police car a long distance away.  They must be very bright if they are to be seen for any distance.  How large a bulb does the average light use?  Upon investigation, you will find that a very small bulb is used, but it is seen far away because it has an excellent reflector.

What was Jesus really referring to when He told you to let your lights shine?  He was talking about your reflecting the nature and the glory of the Lord.  The more you keep the “reflector” clean, the brighter the light will be.  John 15:3 shows you are cleansed by the Word.  Contamination from the world may come through thoughts or words, but you can be cleansed as you spend time studying the Scriptures.  Allow His reflection to become brighter each day.

Life Tools, Building On The Sure Foundation

We all need God in our lives. This is especially true in marriage. A marriage built on sure foundation is much more fruitful than a marriage built on sand. In The Young Bride and Groom: A Marriage Union of Sixty Years by Lorine and Douglas Hargrave gives tribute and honor to the marriage covenant, celebrates their union and speaks of how to live happily in love with God and others. 10.0 stars ~ CBM

Written by a woman of faith that speaks of the true meaning of love, offering the love verse 1 Corinthians 13:13 as her foundation – “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love, but the greatest of these is love.” (NIV) Full of encouragement, this book offers inspiration in light of the modern-day plight of widespread divorce.

Focusing others on the foundation of unity and prayer, she begins her book with a prayer of thanksgiving. As a commemoration of their sixty years, the third renewal of wedding vows is exhibited amongst life long memories and pictures (even of all their old cars which is a treat), and is themed by praises, prayer, and faith that is an encouragement for any young or long-married couple. 

With her husband of sixty years, who is a pastor, the author describes their lives and the fruitfulness that comes from abiding in Jesus and His Word. Such topics that are spoken of are: good communication, praying together and doing something nice everyday. This is wonderful book from an elder, that after being married sixty years gives easy keys to living a healthy, content and happy life in marriage.

The Importance Of Prayer, Instruction, Wisdom and The Love of a Father

10.0 stars out of 10.0 stars  ~ CBM

Highly recommended as an evangelistic tool to reach out to those who are lost and or imprisoned and/or using drugs. In Letters to My Son Gary Bowen culminated from letters the author wrote to his beloved son during his incarceration in jail. Endearing, each letter expresses not only his thoughts, but preaches the Gospel of Truth as the author was led to instruct his son to get back on track with the Lord. 

After a series of arrests, it was later revealed that the son was hanging our kids that were considered “Goths” whom are believed to worship the devil. Revealing that there are only 2 paths to follow in this world, one is to serve God, and the other is to serve Satan.  

The choice is yours as the author reiterates that just being a “good” person will not get you to Heaven, but confessing Christ with your mouth and believing in your heart that Jesus died and rose again to pay for your sins. 

Within this, the author’s instruction speaks to sons, but to all, encouraging them to follow God, most importantly reminding them to adhere to God’s words above all else as noted in Proverbs, presenting that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.  Much instruction is given on our thoughts and a walk with the Lord that reiterates the importance of prayer, daily Bible reading and community within a church. Readers will find this read inspiring and insightful. It is the hopes of the author that others will read these letters to his son and become born again. With much Biblical wisdom, the author speaks truths into the hearts of those that have been deceived into serving the Father of Lies, Satan. ~ You may visit Gary at his site, Author Gary Bowen. You can get your copy of Letters to My Son at Amazon and in Kindle.
