How I won the Powerball Lottery with the help of Dr. Michael O

I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Michael. Well, his email is and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him

Reliable Credit Fix

We can’t forget CYBER CREDIT GURU in a hurry. My husband was declared bankruptcy in 2019 (and we later on realized that the mobile home in which we lived was included). While I had a debt of $26k and about 9 negative items on my report. As a result, we couldn’t get a mortgage until we had our reports fixed. We were frustrated, there was absolutely nothing we could do until we encountered CYBERCREDITGURU (AT) GMAIL DOT COM / +1 (650) 439 0624 via a positive review about them on a blog. Today we are in a house of our own, all negative items removed and score raised from 430, 470 respectively to 782 each in 6 days. Thanks to team CyberGuru


I could not put this down! So well written and draws you in. I loved how she incorporated the storyline and the Bible references together. It was subtle but really profound and beautiful.

You Are A Miracle Worker

It’s a privilege to share this to the world. You deserve all the praise that comes to you. DR Amber has been a blessing to me since our encounter on the internet. He alone knows it all. I love him so much for his kindness, care, honesty and his help in the life of everyone that has come in contact with him. If not for DR Amber how would I have been able to survive this hardship. His spell made me a LOTTO MAX winner of 60 Million Dollars making my whole life beautiful and amazing. The numbers he gave me to play the lottery was a life changing number from grass to grace and I want to say I’m forever grateful to him. Thank you sir for being a blessing to the helpless. Anyone reading this that needs help can communicate with DR Amber online for indeed he has no match. Website: OR Email:

One of my favorites!

Francine Rivers is one of my favorite authors, and from the first time I’ve read Redeeming Love I fell in love with the beautiful depiction of redemption and unconditional love. Such a powerful retelling if the already powerful book of Hosea, and I love that it is set in a somewhat modern setting so as to connect readers to the relevancy found in scripture. Highly recommend!

The best book!!! will always recommend to anyone with a love of god and love

This book was recommended to me by my therapist when I was going through PTSD treatment and It is a story of someone that truly was treated horrible her entire life, and she was so used to it that when someone pure came and offered her a comfortable life with someone that truly will love her she couldn't understand why he would offer her such a thing, to which they both go through a lot together. I also enjoy that they bring to light how good god is and that everything happens for a reason. She learns how to love and to be loved and it truly helped me through a really hard time in my life and will forever be grateful for the part that this book had in my recovery.

How I Fixed My Credit Card Successfully

CYBERCREDITGURU has been amazing to work with! They have creative, knowledgeable professional hackers that make the entire process a great experience. I am a widow with 3 children. I started working with CYBERCREDITGURU two years ago when I had a very poor credit score of 403, with negatives, late payments and evictions. I couldn’t afford a loan to even pay off my basic bills for the up keep of my children. Life was so terrible then. I came across a highly rated reviews about them online and I contacted them on CYBERCREDITGURU (AT) GMAIL DOT COM and phone/text: +1 (650) 439 0624. Lo and behold they got my FICO score raised to 805 and every other negative item cleared within 6 days after following all instructions. Last week I contacted them again for my daughter’s school grade and they got it upgraded excellently within 3 days. I recommend CYBERCREDITGURU to all who have hacking related issues.

I can't stop thanking Lord Zakuza for helping me bring back my girlfriend that left me for another man at her workplace.. I was shocked when she broke up with me and I needed help but everything I did to recover her back did not work. If not for the intervention of Lord Zakuza who I met online, I wouldn't have gotten back my girlfriend because Lord Zakuza prepared a love spell that brought her back to me within 48 hours. I love my girlfriend and I'm happy getting her back again. Thank you Lord Zakuza and I promise to share my experience with you to everybody so that anyone that needs help in any way can also get help too for you are a good and wonderful man that God has sent to help those who need help..

I thought it was a cd that would play in my car. Its not.


I've read this book multiple times.

Didn't expect it to be so good! Would definitely recommend. My favorite book ever.

Beautiful book! It has you on your toes

Being a child that was raped this book hit home. I know that I am not the only child damaged so young out there. But to know that God's love can help mend my broken heart. I say read this book with friends have your Bible handy, and a box of tissues . I toss this book a crossed the room more than one to pick it back up and wish I could wrap my arms around Sarah and Angel and Faith.

Best story showing the love of God.

It was an amazing read. To take a book of Hosea from the Bible and truly bring to life. It helps remind people the emotions that sometimes we forget when reading the Bible. I recommend it to every Christian girl!

Best Book Ever!!!!

Honestly, this book is so well written and a page turner. I absolutely LOVE this book and the symbolism that it represents. I was hooked page after page. AMAZING! a must read.

Great book!

I haven’t read a book this good in a very long time. I experienced so many emotions reading this book. This was a great example of God’s love for his children.

Redeeming Love

Best Book Ever

Francine Rivers Is Amazing!!

Love Love Love this book!! Actually all of Francine Rivers books are absolutely delicious! :)

So good I read twice: back-to-back!

Based on the book of Hosea... this book helps you understand and picture God’s unwavering love for us. We also see the depths of forgiveness! This book is great for anyone looking for a true love story! Francine Rivers is riveting!

Enjoy reading well written romance novel

Very well written with a great story of love and compassion

Timeless Love Story

Amazing book. Beautifully written. Unforgettable characters. Balled such hapoy tears at the end.

Worth book I ever read

Can't believe most people are ok with the way Micheal treats Angel. He is abusive, violent. So many things are done without her consent... If you want an honest review check creatingaplacetostand blog, she explains everything wrong with this book very well.

Do Not Agree

This was given to me a while ago. Reading other books, I finally got around to Redeeming Love. I am so turned off with the beginning filth, I can go no further. Book is Not for me!!!


It was fascinating I couldn’t put it down! So much love yet so much guilt, I love this book. I’m so glad I was referred to it and I found it here used but in such great shape. Will definitely recommend!

Francine Rivers never disappoints

I first read this book many years ago, and have read it at least 3 more times since. It touches my heart every time. Highly recommend it! In fact, I would recommend any of Francine Rivers' books.

So very good!! Highly recommended!!

One of the best books ever written, in my opinion! Tells the story, allegorically, of God's never exhausted love for us, and how He accepts us and loves us as we are: dirty, sin sick, and hopeless. But He loves us too much to leave us like that! Redeeming love, indeed!!

A must read for anyone!!

This book will change your life for the better!! If you really want a book that makes you think,cry,laugh,and see both the best and worst in people and how they/you can deal with it this is the book ! What a beautiful example of true love!

Awesome story of hope and forgiveness!!!

I really loved this book I bought it also for my mom in Spanish and she loved it. It’s a great story of hope for the lost and faith for the believers!! Must read this!!!

Redeeming Love

This is the best book I've EVER read. Really.

So good

I haven’t had a book this captivating since being a child reading Harry Potter 20 years ago. This book was a beautiful love story but yet relatable and inspiring. You must read this book!!!

Could not put it down! Gripping emotional roller coaster!

As someone who loves a good story and loves to read, I have a hard time finding a book so good it is REALLY hard to put down- but this one had me from front to finish! I have a very slim category in my bookshelf of those I will keep and read again, and this one made it. I have become a Francine Rivers fan!

LOVE THIS FROM BEGINNING TO THE End! I encouarage all girls to read this and for guys so they know how to depend on God for your future spouse!


I'm not even exaggerating... I cried literal tears on several occasions. Amazing. You won't regret getting this book. Its that good.

The best book I have ever read!

Ok, I know you read the reviews, and it's always " oh this is a great book," or " you just have to read it," " its the best book in the whole wide world" and you think, "yep, heard that line said before..." well, I don't want you to think that I'm just writing this review and coming up with those lines. BUT I'm serious, this is the best book I have ever read. I have a read a ton of books in my day, and Francine Rivers is by far the best author I have come across. I also recommend the Mark of the Lion series by her. Those were excellent also. Francine Rivers has wonderfuly portrayed the book of Hosea through this story. It shows God's unconditional love for us, no matter what we've done in the past. He loves for who we are. Its wonderful, isn't it? I highly recommend these books and I hope all of you who read them enjoy them as much as I did.

Powerful retelling of God's love and grace

I've read every book for Francine Rivers that I could get my hands on and this one is by far her best. A gripping story demonstrating God's love, I couldn't put down Redeeming Love once I started. I read until three in the morning. I laughed, I cried, I rediscovered precious truths that I had forgotten about God's love. I would recommend this book to any one. I was sorry when I read the last page. I wish I could have read more about Michael and Sarah's life.

This book grabbed me by the collar and would not let me go!

The first day I bought this book, I sat on my desk and told myself I'd just read a chapter before I go to bed. That was 9pm. No matter how hard I tried, I could not put the book down. I found myself teary eyed, reading the ending, at 5am the next morning. Intending to read just the first few pages, I ended up reading the entire book in one sitting (with one bathroom break!).Everytime Angel would run away from Michael's love, I would say, "you stupid, ungrateful woman!" But as I was reading, God reminded me of all the times when I myself would backslide from my faith, thinking that I could make it on my own without Him - and of how unconditional His love is (like Michael's) when I come to my senses and ask for His forgiveness. After I finished the novel, I couldn't help but thank God for His forgiving, faithful, redeeming love.I definitely recommend this book. But don't read it like I did - Don't read it in one sitting until 5am when you need to be at work at 7am.!!

Truly....The BEST novel I have ever read in my life.

I just want to echo all the other reviews about this incredible book. I was totally captivated by this story and couldn't put it down. Sleep didn't seem near as important as finding out what was going on with Michael and Angel. I can get choked up when reading, but never before have I sobbed. Congratulations, Francine for being the first author to bring me to some serious tears. Even though I was emotionally exhausted at times....I didn't want the book to end. This book truly touched DEEP parts of my heart. I haven't been able to shake this lifechanging book. In fact, like many others, I went out to a local Christian Book Store and bought copies and started giving them away. I was loaned the book to read and immediately after finishing the book I went and bought it (for myself and others). I strongly suggest this book to any/everyone. Don't let this feminine looking cover fool you'll touch you too. If you want to read another one of her books that is also wonderful, try "The Atonement Child." [By the way, did anyone else notice the subtle Corinthians scriptures in the purple bands on the cover?] If you haven't read it yet.....What are you waiting for?

A moving picture of the unshakeable love of God

What a joy to be able to share my thoughts about this book with whomever may read this. This is the first book Francine Rivers wrote after coming into her relationship with Christ. Because of that, it has a rawness and a fresh fascination with the incredible love of God. The characters are real and believable, especially Angel, whose life experiences have left her bitter and angry, certain that there is no hope for redemption or love. The story that unfolds is so much more than the "sappy" romance-novel cover depicts (I wish the publisher would redesign it). Even for me, a Christian for 15 years, it was deeply moving and humbling to read of how unshakeable God's love is, and also His discipline. I have reccomended this book to so many people, all of whom have had similar responses to mine, and I would suggest it as a way to show God's amazing love to anyone you may know who doesn't know Him. Praise God for servants who are gifted in such unique ways as Mrs. Rivers - may she continue to glorify Him with her stories!
