    If I woke up my spouse in the middle of the night to tell him to

    If I woke up my spouse in the middle of the night to tell him to impersonate G.W.Bush I know he would not have reacted as nicely as Mr. Morgan did to his wife! He lays out the story of how he went from working in the family business to being a fantastic impersonator of Bush in a most hilarious and riveting way!  I was convicted and struck by the questions he asks you after each chapter.  His "job" as a Bush impersonator has so many life lessons wrapped up in it.
    I started the book expecting a funny, lighthearted read. I was NOT disappointed in that - but it was so much more.  I don't know how he did it, but he went deeper and made me feel like he wrote the book directly to me.  I couldn't put it down! 
    How can you pass up a book where a "regular" guy gets to impersonate a president and have as much fun as he did in that role? The stories of him "punking" certain people and surprising others are just hilarious!  I highly recommend having this one on your personal bookshelves for always coming back to for a smile.  
    I was given this book by the Book Club Network for an honest review.

    My Life as a Bush¿and my heart for imitating Jesus by John Morga

    My Life as a Bush…and my heart for imitating Jesus by John Morgan was a most inspirational and entertaining book. I have to admit that I had never heard of John Morgan. I like the way the book was organized with each chapter relating a professional experience of John’s as he impersonated President George W. Bush. Each chapter also included John’s testimony of his life as an imitator of Jesus as he follows Jesus in his daily walk as a Christian. John told how the principles that he uses to impersonate the President are Biblical commandments that can help Christians become authentic imitators of Jesus As much as John Morgan enjoys and has fun impersonating the President, in his personal and private life, he works hard to be more like Jesus. Each chapter begins with a Bible verse and ends with questions for reflection that are good for personal study or to use in a small study group. The most important point of the book is that of living a life that makes us more and more like Jesus but not impersonating Jesus.

    I thought it was quite interesting and funny how John got started as an impersonator. He was awakened quite a while after midnight from a sound sleep and told by his wife, “I’ve found your new career—impersonating the president.” After he did some research and learned how profitable it was to be an impersonator, he decided that it was worth a try. John spent months studying the President to be able to imitate facial expressions, mannerisms, hand gestures, walk, hair style, speech patterns, and any other facet of the President’s life that made the impersonation more real.

    I would recommend this book to everyone, Christians and non Christians alike.

    I received this book free from Book Club Network in exchange for an honest review.

    The Impact of Impersonation! John Morgan's story is both amusing

    The Impact of Impersonation!
    John Morgan's story is both amusing and inspirational. The story of his life as an impersonator of former president George W. Bush is filled with humor. His personal testimony regarding his impersonation of Jesus is a beautiful spiritual parallel. When John discovered his resemblance to "Dubya" he began developing the skills involved in impersonating the former president. He practiced facial expressions and physical mannerisms in front of the mirror, and listened to recordings made by the former president, perfecting his accent and speech patterns. In tandem with these forms of impersonating the former president, John honed his skills at impersonating Jesus. John communicates examples for tuning out the negative voices in our heads, eliminating our insecurities, and practicing our own impersonations of Jesus. No props are necessary in the quest to imitate Jesus. Read God's Word, imitate the life of Jesus, and practice obedience. Questions for reflection and meditation are included at the conclusion of each chapter, adding to the teachings the author offers in this well-crafted book. Several photos of John in various venues are also included in this book, adding to the entertaining qualities of this story.




    I thoroughly enjoyed reading the story of John Morgan's life as an impersonator of George "Dubya" Bush and the humorous adventures he has encountered throughout his career, and appreciate the valuable lessons in the art of impersonating Jesus. I highly recommend this book.
