To: My Real Dad: A 21 Day Guide through the Lord’s Prayer

by Martha Fry

To: My Real Dad is based on the Lord’s Prayer. Many people are asking the same question the disciples asked Jesus “teach us how to pray.” Jesus gave the Lord’s Prayer as a model of how to pray, but not to be a religious ritual. To: My Real Dad are prayers based on the 7 parts of the Lord’s Prayer broken down into today’s language. Just like a two-year-old mimics their parent’s words when learning to talk, we need words to mimic as we learn how to pray. To: My Real Dad gives you words, thoughts, and phrases as you pray. If you have prayed your whole life this book will give you new thoughts on how to pray and if you’re new to prayer it will get you started in having great conversations with God. There are life-giving declarations at the end of each day for you to declare over your life. As you speak this book out loud it will transform you internally. To: My Real Dad, conversations with God, your real Dad.



A Child of Promise: A Bible Study for Parents Facing a Poor or Fatal Prognosis for their Unborn Child

by Kim Endraske

Carrying a child known to have a poor or fatal prognosis can be a painful, lonely journey. Each lesson is broken into reflecting on a stage of your pregnancy. Sharing from her own pregnancy journey, and leading you through a study of applicable scriptures and journaling prompts, Kim walks with you through the days, weeks and months of your pregnancy. From the initial excitement of learning you are expecting; to the tests, questions and decisions you face; to the rollercoaster of waiting for your child’s birth and looking toward an uncertain future; you will find comfort in the words of our Lord and in the words of this fellow mom.

“When an expecting mother receives the frightening news that the gift of God in her womb has a poor or fatal prognosis, it evokes many questions and emotions. Here is a Scripture study designed to help process and bring guidance during this season of pain and decision-making. Kim Endraske uses the pain of her own story woven with the timeless truths of God’s Word to bring hope, healing and direction to mothers in a similar position she was in with the loss of her precious son Tommy. You will find a great friend in Kim who will point you to a Greater Friend as you work your way through this excellent resource of hope during this season of uncertainty.”

The Grieving Heart – Depression: Dealing With Depression Mental Health Support

by Fiona Welsh

There are times in life when things just aren’t as rosy as they could be. Whilst this is normal from time to time, what do you do when you simply can’t shake that dark, foreboding feeling that has been hanging around a little too long?

Depression is a very real problem across the globe, and with an estimated 350 million sufferers worldwide (World Health Organisation), it’s likely that either yourself, or someone you know, has or is suffering from the condition.

Depression is not something to take lightly, but like most mental health issues, we tend to sweep it under the carpet and pretend it’s not happening. This stigma has to stop, and it has to stop now!

This book is designed to help anyone who is suffering or is affected by depression in any form, and to any degree. Whether that means yourself as a sufferer, or that a loved one is affected, we offer help, advice, and a helping hand of support. With easy to read chats, we go through exactly what depression is, the signs and symptoms to look out for, the common causes and triggers, the likely treatment options, and we also talk about how you can give your recovery a helping hand, with some useful lifestyle changes and cognitive exercises.

Put simply, depression is something that will affect all of our lives to some degree, at some point, whether its your or a loved one, so being armed with the facts, and the hints and tips to help aid recovery, is vital. Let us help you, and as a result, see a brighter and sunnier day in the future.

The 12 Books of Christ Within: Book Four (A): A Spirit Called PENTECOST: One Anointed with Power to Occupy till Christ Comes

by David K N Lekwa

Read All About Pentecost & The Church of Christ
Pentecost is a mighty spirit; he is a thought of God, with the specific purpose to lift up the physical name of Jesus Christ, and announce his promise of a Second Coming to all nations.
But Pentecost is not Christ. Christ seeks for Purity, whereas Pentecost is equipped to manifest in this world of impurities. Pentecost parleys with the physical temple, which is an arch enemy of Christ. There are many attributes of Pentecost Christ cannot tolerate. Sadly too, he can never anoint or use the same human vessels that Pentecost delights in.
Unfortunately, Pentecost, with all his anti-Christ companions, is occupying exactly the same position Christ seeks to reclaim to accomplish his purpose of a Second Coming.
Pentecostalism is a great and successful program of God, but it is today delaying the long awaited Second Coming of the living Christ. “Christ Within” introduces you to the Church of Christ; that spotless bride prepared for her groom. It is an invisible, spiritual entity within the soul of the pure in spirit, and only very few, few people indeed find it at any time.
Christ is waiting for this church of the pure in spirit. A Church that cannot be limited to any physical place, house, or physical congregation, but cuts through and across all physical human barriers of race, color, religion, tribe, and nation.
If we must see Jesus in his Second Coming, we must become a member of this Church built on Purity -and built for the pure in spirit of the earth.

The 12 Books of Christ Within: Book Three (A): Dawn of the Spiritual Age of Christ – Man in God –

by David K N Lekwa

A New and Everlasting Covenant of Life and Peace
There was an Old Covenant, and its era dealt with physical and visible realities of a spiritual God. It reached its limit in our religions. It has irretrievably broken down and must be allowed to pass into oblivion. Of what use is salt if it has lost its saltiness?
â?¦and the New Covenant: Christ is the new Covenant and the new Covenant is in Christ. It means God is with us in his love, wisdom and strength. It is a spiritual era and it is the “new wine” that would unfold forever.
In Christ there is no compulsion; there are no classes, no priests and their temples, no pastors and their physical churches, no religions, no servants and masters, tribes and races, and all men are equal and united in the brotherhood of all nations under the fatherhood of just one God.
Christ is an irreversible bonding that responds only to the needs of man, without regarding any laws of God, or of man. “Christ Within” ushers in this reign of Christ on earth.
This is yet another milestone in the author’s zeal and determination to take the nations to that new earth or New Jerusalem where there is no death, no sickness, no hunger and thirst, no violence, wars or jihadist terrorists, and no devastating tsunamis or extreme weather conditions; just life, serenity and peace for ever and ever.
