A Christmas Peril (The Teacup Novellas – Book Five)

by Diane Moody

A Christmas Peril – Teacup Novellas Book Five

Lucy Alexander’s Teacup Novellas were inspired by a collection of vintage teacups her Aunt Lucille bequeathed to her. She’s excited about writing the next book in the series, a Christmas tale loosely based on her aunt and uncle’s love story set in the 1940s. But when a hostage situation lands Lucy’s boyfriend in the hospital, she sets her work aside to keep a bedside vigil with Mark. As the long hours of waiting stretch on, Lucy starts to read her beloved aunt’s handwritten diary. Shocked to discover a frightening story so eerily similar to the one she’s living, Lucy longs to find hope and encouragement in the pages of Lucille’s diary.

December 1944 – “The most wonderful things seem to happen when you least expect them,” writes Lucille Alexander after a serendipitous meeting with Gary Reynolds, a handsome lieutenant home on leave from the war in Europe. The two are inseparable in the five precious days he has left before heading back overseas just weeks before Christmas. On their last morning together, Lucille accompanies Gary to the train station, already dreading the long separation ahead. But that would be the least of her worries after her brave lieutenant rushes to help an elderly woman in distress.

Lucy finds a strange solace in her namesake’s ink-stained journal. Though seventy years have passed between them, would their stories have the same ending?



A Lady in Defiance (Romance in the Rockies)

by Heather Blanton

       …IT’S HIS TOWN AND HE DARES GOD TO STEP FOOT IN IT.

Charles McIntyre owns everything and everyone in the lawless, godless mining town of Defiance. When three good, Christian sisters from his beloved South show up stranded, alone, and offering to open a “nice” hotel, he is intrigued enough to let them stay…especially since he sees feisty middle sister Naomi as a possible conquest. But Naomi, angry with God for widowing her, wants no part of Defiance or the saloon-owning, prostitute-keeping Mr. McIntyre. It would seem however, that God has gone to elaborate lengths to bring them together. The question is, “Why?” Does God really have a plan for each and every life?

Written with gritty, but not gratuitous, realism uncharacteristic of historical Christian fiction, A Lady in Defiance gives a nod to both Pride and Prejudice and Redeeming Love. The story, based on true events, is an “ensemble” piece that deftly weaves together the relationships of the three sisters and the rowdy residents of Defiance.



The Christmas House

by Barry KuKes

Dead Granny Says, “I’ll See You On Christmas Eve.”

How would you like an annual visit from your deceased loved ones?

A faint tone lingered from the last chime and faded into the silence. An old woman in a dark blue dress proceeded to the door as a smile came to her face… the guests outside yelled, “Merry Christmas Martha!”… As they hugged and kissed, the doorbell rang and guests continued to fill the house…old and middle-aged people, youg children. Some even brought their dogs. The house was abundant with joy and merriment, so much so that it was strange…it just wasn’t normal…

There seems to be nothing strange with family Christmas Eve visits…or is there? From Barry T. KuKes’ vibrant imagination comes an emotional, enigmatic tale of a magic house that brings the dead back to life every Christmas Eve, in The Christmas House (Amazon.com)

Set in the affluent suburbs of Chicago, the story of the magical house unfolds through Martha. After all of her relatives died, Martha was left to take care of the old, magical house to preserve its mystical foundations. However, having forseen her impending death, she sells the house to a simple, happy family who has no idea that their first Christmas Eve in the magical mansion will change their lives forever. Soon, all the characters learn the true meaning of love, family and sacrifice.

An exceptional story, The Christmas House is more than just magic and fantasy. It delves into the deepest and most profound human emotions that would prove even more powerful than any element or dimension. KuKes especially wants his readers to know that life is too short for dilly-dallying and regrets. The Christmas House is a sweeping reminder that people should take time for their loved ones because, in reality, the dead cannot come back for a visit.

Six year old Grace Elizabeth Madison Thornton can barely contain her excitement, as this Christmas Eve promises to be the biggest night of her life. Elizabeth is finally old enough to dress up in a white robe made from one of her mama’s bed sheets, don wings fashioned from tinfoil and take her place in the Methodist church sanctuary as an angel in her small Southern town’s annual Christmas Eve nativity pageant.

But just seconds before the performance begins, Elizabeth is banned from participating by the over zealous pageant director, who deems the child too little to hold a lighted candle. Instead of going to sit with her mama and daddy in the audience, Elizabeth finds herself in the church’s outdoor nativity display where she enters a surreal world that includes plywood figures that talk, an unusual angel and a startling encounter with the Baby Jesus!



END TIMES: A Cowboy Apocalypse

by Neal Thomas Kelsey

About 1,840 years into the future, in the year 3850 CE, archaeologists from UCLA and the University of Kansas discover an ancient religious manuscript that was written between 1885 and 1895. Twenty-five hand written pages were found inserted in a Bible at Mark 13. The author of the text is unknown but the main character in the apocalyptic text is named “Jesse”, which may have an apocryphal relationship to the outlaw Jesse James.

Jesse lives and works around Dodge City, Kansas and rides with a group of men referred to as his sidekicks. The main body of the text consists of a sermon addressed to his sidekicks in which Jesse provides his interpretation of the apocalypse found in Mark 13. In his discussion of what the future holds for Dodge City, Jesse has plenty to say about late 19th century apocalyptic fervor and a gunslinger from heaven.



WRATH OF GOD: Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Tornadoes

by Neal Thomas Kelsey

Raphael, a Guardian Angel, works for Lord Monothusa in his heavenly realm. In his angelic capacity, Raphael shuttles back and forth between heaven and earth in order to monitor the activities of human beings in San Francisco, usually while sitting on a cloud. He then reports what he has learned to Lord Monothusa, who dispenses rewards and punishments based on Raphael’s reports. As Raphael’s earthly observations progress, his understanding of Lord Monothusa’s system of divine justice comes into question, which places him in an awkward position as a Guardian Angel. Will Raphael be able survive as a skeptic in Lord Monothusa’s heavenly realm?



Memories of Nigeria

by Clint Bowman

This is a 14 day devotional set of short stories based on my experiences while working in a high school in Nigeria from 1992-96. During that time I was privileged to help a team of students and a couple of faculty members begin or nourish fourteen different new churches in surrounding villages. The adventures and cultural insights are too numerous to completely share in one set of devotions, however I believe this eBook will be helpful to you. I challenge you to set aside a few minutes each day for 14 days and read one of these stories. Turn off the cell phones and other distractions for those few minutes and dwell on what God has to say to you from His Word. I hope it’ll be a blessing!



Principles of Magick

by Jeffrey Pierce

Magick isn’t a series of words, actions, and materials that bend natural laws and warp mundane reality. It doesn’t provide us with a blank check with which to detail how we want the events of our world to play out.

The secret? We’ve never needed magick to be any of that.

We are intensely powerful beings composed of the same material that is at the heart of all Creation. In order to grow, evolve, and move toward our deeper calling and the power it holds, when we were born into this lifetime we accepted certain illusionary limitations that prevent us from embracing the fullness of our spiritual identity. Ritual and spellwork are tools that allow us to strip away the illusions that limit our growth and power, providing us with insight, wisdom, and understanding. While magick itself offers a certain amount of mystical influence, it is most effectively used as a key that allows us to unlock our own potential, our own power, and open ourselves to a deeper and fuller version of reality.

This book contains the principles behind magick, why it works, what happens when we work magick, and the framework to begin your own magickal practice or to significantly deepen magick’s role on your own path. Gleaned not from books but from hands-on experience, each lesson, insight, and perspective included in these pages was chosen for one simple reason: it works.

Prophecies of America: The Last Days

by Ronald Ragan

Prophecies of America – The Last Days is based on the four kingdoms prophesied in the book of Daniel that would exist in the Last Days. The Author has a God-given gift to interpret the prophecy. The book explains how America and American people fit into the Bible, and where we are in prophesy today. Also Included are countries such as Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom, Germany, Western Europe, Italy, France, Eastern Europe, Asia, Russia, and Africa.

It is written to be a blueprint or owner’s manual to your Bible. Helps explain what is allegorical in the Bible and what is not, and everything is backed up by Bible Scripture.

Answers questions such as: How old is the earth? When did dinosaurs live? When was the Ice Age? How long did Adam and Eve live in the Garden of Eden? Where did Noah and his family start out? Why is the Bible full of genealogies? Who built the Great Pyramid in Egypt and why? Where are World War II and the Jewish Holocaust mentioned in the Bible? How do the Old and New Testaments connect? The book also explains several obvious prophesies of Jesus Christ and Mary, the mother of Jesus.

The book has many charts, pictures and maps to hopefully make the Bible easier to understand. It starts in the Book of Genesis and goes thru the Book of Revelations interpreting prophesies which should concern you and everyone alive today. President Obama, Supreme Court, ACLU, Civil Rights Activists, Dr. Laura Schlesinger, Sharon Stone, Cameron Diaz, Madonna, Brad Pitt, and Mel Gibson are also mentioned.



Who Do You Love? (Loving God Series)

by Martha Kilpatrick

“Love is the sole motive of life.”

We don’t know what we believe about love, or what we think love is, in the secret place of our hearts. We can spout the right things, but what we believe in the heart is something else. How then can we know who we love?

Here Martha surveys the vast history of man’s slavery, all resulting from our desperate need of love, and shines new light on the extraordinary Love who speaks tenderly to usâ??the faithless Gomers.

by Joel Stratte-McClure

This is a trip to get into!

Reviews
“This is the best guide to the Mediterranean since Homer’s The Odyssey”
– Princess Beatriz de Orleans Borbón from Spain.

“One of those seductive books that, as you read, slowly insinuates itself into your consciousness and becomes more and more compelling and entrancing.”
– Bruce Elder, The Sydney (Australia) Morning Herald.

“‘The Idiot and the Odyssey’ is such a terrific antidote to the middle age melancholia that if Homer could do a sequel, Odysseus would probably jump ship to join Joel Stratte-McClure’s MedTrek instead.”
– Craig Unger, Vanity Fair Contributing Editor and author of “The Fall of the House of Bush.”

“Described as ‘Eat Pray Love’ for men, Stratte-McClure’s account is entertaining, informative and inspirational.”
– Toni Whitman, Booktopia Buzz.

“A dream experience of a lifetime. It’s worth every ebullient, blistering step!”
– Tom Moore, Editor-in-Chief, Reader’s Digest Australia

Three Angels for Christmas

by Dianna Sandora

A Story of unconditional love, faith and hope: Ebony Lissam is a strong, independent, lonely woman, with a successful shoe and handbag collection. Ebony has managed to alienate the people closest to her since her mother died ten years ago she. One Christmas Eve she is visited by her mother, who informs her that she will be visited by three angels in a delightful, Jesus focused, twist to the traditional Charles Dickens “A Christmas Carol.” The Christmas angels share with Ebony that Jesus is indeed the “Reason for the Season.” One by one they show her past and present, showing her that providence has been with her every step of the way, and the third angel shows her how things will end up in the future if she doesn’t rededicate her life to Christ.

Yes, Virginia, I do believe in Jesus!

This review is from: Blackbird: A Boy Meets The Devil For the First Time (Kindle Edition)

I’ve been reading about 70 years and Blackbird is one of those rare nuggets of pure gold in a whole mountain of clay . It plays out like the blues, full of riffs and bass and gravel that spin themselves into a mirror of soul not ashamed to get down and dirty and come up dragging us into a light we refused to open our eyes to before. Don’t let the stomp and shuffle and guffaws fool you into thinking it’s not about you, you ain’t gonna get off that easy. I was in Gadsden Alabama for about three months in 1958, and he’s not telling any lies. It was my first experience with deep southern segregationist views. A great morality tale told by a masterful and powerful writer about a very unique character.

About this story:

What would you do if you were in a public place – a Doctor’s waiting room – and a bigot came in and started spouting his hatred for one and all to hear.

Would you keep silent?

I did not.

Bible Study #60 Life and Letters of Paul Series-Galatians (Bible Study With John Ogwyn)

by John Ogwyn

“We are getting into the book of Galatians this

evening. It is an important book to understand. It

is one that the world frequently misunderstands.

There’s probably no book that the Apostle Paul

wrote that has been more misunderstood,

distorted and taken out of context than has

been the book of Galatians. As we get into the

book itself, let’s understand a little bit of the

background of Galatians.

The commentators are not even sure where

Galatia was. What they’re not sure about, really,

is what they understand best, and it kind of goes

downhill from there. They are not sure where it

was located and everything becomes less clear as

they go along. Why do I say that they were not

sure where it was?

The term “Galatia” was used in several different

ways in the New Testament period. In some

cases, it was used as a broad geographical term.

It referred to a specific Roman province, but

even the borders of the province changed a

couple of times as Roman administration (in

terms of the way they administered the Roman

Empire) made some alterations. The result was

that there’s about two or three different areas that

can be labeled Galatia. All of them are in the

same general area.

The Buried Path

by The Journeyman

There comes a time in almost all our lives when we look for answers to that which lies beyond our everyday horizons. We search for reason, truth and bearing to deepen who we are and give our world value and meaning. All that is difficult to unravel though when the very life we live is twisted and wrapped tightly within the labyrinth in which we unknowingly dwell, contorted and bent out of shape by all that and those around us, with the reality of our being buried beneath the lies upon which we walk. Those answers however are too often hard to find when we don’t even know what the questions are we need to ask.

Mission and Motherhood: The Hidden Sacrifice (Mission and Tradition in the Congo)

by Jane Marshall

To Go or Not to Go?

To support my husband in his life’s work in a country far away?

Or to stay in our own country to care for our children?

This was the dilemma facing many twentieth century Congo missionaries who were both wives and mothers. There would usually be little choice as to their decision. A wife was expected, and she herself expected, to support her husband wherever his career or vocation took him. Missionaries’ own children would generally have to be found alternative homes or be sent to boarding school. The mothers would not only have to endure the consequent family separation but also misunderstanding and personal guilt.

â??Mission and Motherhood’ recounts and reflects upon the true stories of four Yakusu missionary mothers who bore this personal sacrifice with courage, dignity and discretion.
