Co-Author: Ryan Jensen

Publisher: Lucid Books

Honor and shame influence every major aspect of life, whether in relationships, politics, or social media. It’s not surprising, then, to find that honor and shame shape the biblical message and all that Christians are called to be. Unfortunately, many leaders and laypersons do not grasp the theological and practical significance of these concepts for the church.

Therefore, this book provides an accessible entry point for engaging these topics in everyday Christian living. Seeking God’s Face contains 101 practical reflections on honor and shame taken from across the pages of Scripture. It presents honor and shame, not as abstract concepts, but as compelling issues that affect evangelism, spiritual formation, and discipleship. Seeking God’s Face equips readers to interpret the biblical text faithfully and apply its message meaningfully.

This is a sweet little book about how much God loves His children and some of the promises He makes to them: He promises to always love them no matter what, to take care of them when things are not the way we want, and to always be there when it seems He is not.

Dear Child: Stories About God’s Love will snuggle generations of children in its heartwarming message of God’s Love, promises, and protection. These stories show that all love comes from God and that He wants us to love Him too.

In these touching stories and beautiful illustrations, the author wants every child to know they are truly loved, no matter their circumstances.

Publisher: Motina Books

There comes a moment in everyone’s life when everything finally makes sense. You know that where you are is exactly where you’re supposed to be.

It’s 11:59, and Rob Jackson is reflecting on his life – the domino effect that each event had on the next throughout the years of his life. During his childhood in a small town in Mississippi, he learned how it feels to be an outsider, and the love for his mother, books, fishing, and his grandmother, are what kept him full of hope.

Although Jackson strives to build a relationship with his biological father, the constant search for his approval only results in heartbreak and tragedy.

Throughout this journey, he discovers nothing is ever as it seems. He tries to overcome his bitterness, loneliness, and disappointments, with the help of the women he meets along the way. Octavia, a mentor and guide, Dolores, a friend and partner, and then Nora, the woman he believes to be his soulmate.

When the final domino falls, Jackson is staring at the clock, with time being his ultimate nemesis.

Some time ago, a woman from Canada told me she was unable to purchase my newest release Love, Lies, and Grace from Amazon. Surprised, I contacted Amazon to try and sort things out. I don’t recall exactly what Amazon said, but their response didn’t quite satisfy me. Since then I began toying with the idea of “going wide” as authors call it, meaning having my books in places other than Amazon.

Book 1 of the Egypt series

Don’t get me wrong, I still love Amazon. In fact, although I did move Coming Out of Egypt, the first book in the Egypt series, over to Draft2Digital, I have yet to get sales from that source and am keeping a close eye on it before I move other books to D2D. I have since learned that it takes a while, like anything else, to build a presence on D2D, so I’m hanging on to see what will happen.

Meanwhile, if you are an international reader, like the lady from Canada, you can access Coming Out of Egypt on Kobo.

For Nook readers, you can find me on Barnes and Noble.

If you are using an Apple device, you may want to access Coming Out of Egypt here.

If you are always on the go and require offline access, you can download the Scribd app and read to your heart’s content. You get instant access to ebooks, audiobooks and even music, but it comes with a monthly subscription.

Of course, if you are an American reader and prefer to shop on Amazon, here’s the link.

Not sure which link is right for you? Simply try Books2Read and you will see all the retailers where the book is available. If you enjoy reading paperback you would be pleased to know that Coming Out of Egypt is now available in the library, but only here in Florida in the county where I live. However, you can request it through your local library and they will make it available to you.

God tells us to endure and be faithful. Sad to say many have gone back into the world by giving up on Christianity because of difficulties and problems. Bad things will try our faith in God. Remember God is always in control and He allows things to happen for a reason.

This book is designed to encourage people that may be thinking about giving up when their faith in God is tried. In each chapter of the book it starts out with a pray, a scripture, humorous illustrations most of the time, then something is stated about faith. Please endure, be patient, and don’t give up hell is too hot and eternity too long. “When Your Faith is Tried, Don’t Give Up.”

 


About the Author

Rudolph (Rudy) Burdett Jr. is striving to bring change in presenting faith (gospel) to others. Faith is the only thing we have that the devil is striving to take. Faith is required in pleasing God. Rudy is a devoted, dedicated, committed member and a minister of the church of Christ.

He was able to start a congregation in North Carolina in 2002. He resigned in 2007 from preaching and teaching because of a medical condition that hinder him from functioning. Rudy feels that God called him to help people in preaching the faith and visiting others.

He feels helping the less fortunate is needed especially, feeding and clothing. Prayerfully, food and clothing distribution will be a great future endeavor to embark upon. In Matthew 26:11, Jesus said, “you always have the poor with you.”

A Recipe for Discovering Your Ideal Career

 

Nonfiction / Career

Date Published: March 30, 2022

Publisher: Getting Results Inc


photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

What do you want to be when you grow up?

That may have been fun or easy to answer years ago, but for teens and young adults, it’s a question that can be disconcerting at best… and sometimes downright frightening now that the question has become real.

 

Career choice is a huge decision with layers of consequence.


In Find Your Flavor, Lauren Doyle walks readers through the step-by-step process she uses with the young adult clients she works with which include:

Integrating your interests, strengths, and lifestyle desires to create the recipe for the ultimate career success.

The importance of playing, experimenting, and sampling with potential ingredients to be included in your career recipe.

How to distinguish between enduring intrigue v.s. hobby-like interests.

Better understanding and mastering your own mind for more successful life outcomes.

Guidance on how to get your foot in the door (or on the ladder).

Learn to use existing social networks to help you land a position in your chosen field.


She offers specific exercises that help readers put these critical, but often ‘invisible’ concepts to work to uncover the perfect recipe for choosing the ideal career. Whether you are a teen considering a college major or a young adult about to launch into a professional role, you’ll definitely want to read this book and ‘find your flavor’ that will put you on the path to success and life-long fulfillment.



Lauren Doyle has been helping professionals make more money and have more fun the majority of her career as a business coach. Due to the fact that her background is diverse and includes a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, she has had the opportunity to help many of her clients’ adult children navigate the daunting challenge of choosing a career they love and to set them up for untold success. Her skillset is an unusual talent that allows her to connect with this younger population and relate to them through her own personal successes.

 This book was written for you because she wanted to codify what has helped her and her clients achieve a life and career by design. Maybe it is her love of puzzles that allow her to help her clients put together the challenging puzzle of choosing a career that will marry each client’s unique talent with their enduring passions to cook up the perfect recipe for choosing a rewarding career ideal for them. 

 Her ‘outside the box’ thinking she helps her clients and herself live a fulfilling business. She truly practices what she preaches. The concepts she shares has allowed her to: live on the beach in San Diego, become a snowbird in her 30’s spending ½ the year on a lake in Michigan and the other ½ in beautiful Sarasota, Florida. She has been able to do this while achieving financial freedom as a result of cooking up her own recipe of creating a national business coaching firm, buying and selling millions of dollars of real estate and being a great Mom and wife. 

 She sat in your place once and has uncovered the formula that will help you ultimately determine yours. Her practical approach makes her style relatable and the steps easy to implement. 

 She has a passion for renovating all things to make them better; from countless properties to hundreds of lives and businesses, she seems to have mastered the art of putting the right pieces in place to create the desired experience. 

 In addition to this book, Ms. Doyle has also written The Hijacker: Overcome Self-sabotaging Behavior, a book that takes a deeper dive into the impact of understanding Human Operating Systems. 

 With her Psychology and business background gives her a unique perspective that is most helpful in writing the ultimate recipe for career success.

A Journey of Self-Healing After Grief and Loss


Self-Help, Grief & Loss

Date Published: April 20, 2022

Publisher: Westbow Press


Have you ever thought that you were alone in your struggle to have children? Maybe you have gone through a season of depression and anxiety, feeling alone and isolated, needing support. It is time to talk about the truth and the struggle to overcome grief, sadness, and disappointments in our lives.

Nothing makes us grow more than allowing our old ways to die and burying the emotional baggage that we hold on to: the past and the pain. We want to own it because we know nothing else. It is familiar, despite the messiness. We carry these hard-hearted matters like heroes carrying a victorious flag. To declare to you that the tangled narrative of my life will bring healing to your life is certain. You choose to partner alongside me because you wish to heal, and this is the initial step. Someone once declared, trust no one who does not walk with a limp. Don’t trust someone who hasn’t experienced a storm. Today, as I write these words, I walk with a physical lean, as I am recovering from two knee surgeries. These fractured parts of my knee, my meniscus, gravely damaged that it had to be removed, were the first of many ailments. My ACL ligament, the one that had to be sewn back together with a hamstring graft, is the source of my limp. Wandering around with this limp has humbled me, only the Father knows. I own this truth of being broken and sewn back together. More significantly, the divine surgeon has healed my past.



About the Author

Morene S. Lim is a wife, the home-educating mom to two boys, educator, and encourager. Morene loves taking afternoon walks, salsa dancing with her husband, and playing with her kids, believing that there are infinite gifts each day to be thankful for.

The title says it all. If you love farms, food and, well, love, you will enjoy this movie. If you love watching cooking competitions, you will enjoy this movie. If you are a chef or in the food business, you will enjoy this movie.

At the risk of repeating myself one more time, let me give you a brief synopsis of Farm To Fork To Love. Alice is a young sous chef at a very popular restaurant in New York, when she is invited to take part in judging a cooking competition in Kansas. Her boyfriend, Bret, who is very domineering and also happens to be her boss, is not happy about the invite, but he grudgingly allows her to go.

Alice arrives in Kansas only to find that Christian, her former boyfriend from college, is also one of the judges. When the two meet, we can tell they still have feelings for each other. While they are busy catching up on old times and what might have been, Bret pays Alice a visit. The meeting is awkward, especially as Alice has not told Christian about Bret. He wants Alice to be the head chef at the new restaurant he is opening, but her cooking must be according to his dictates, and Christian wants to know if Alice has ever considered leaving New York.

Alice is not the only one who has to make a decision. Christian also has to decide if he would accept the position as the new head of the Phillips Group his aunt Daniela has offered him as she is planning to step down. However, Daniela is also wavering in her decision because although she loves her job, she wants to find love before it is too late. And it seems she has found it in Raphael, winner of the cooking competition.

Farm To Fork To Love is one of those rare movies that can aptly be described as clean and wholesome. There is little or no kissing and no bad language. Meggan Kaiser plays the part of Alice, the sweet and charming girl-next-door type, while Maurice Johnson (Bret) is exactly the domineering type we often see in television cooking shows. Patty Lambert (Daniela), while fully conscious of her status as hotel magnate, is still humble enough to recognize what her life is lacking and to go after it.

If you are looking for clean, wholesome, and a bit slow, Farm To Fork To Love is your cup of tea; if however, you want something with a little more punch, I’d say look elsewhere. Dove has approved it for all ages.

You can watch it on Netflix, Pureflix if you have a subscription or on Tubi for free!  https://bit.ly/farmtoforktolovewatchnow You can also watch the film on Amazon if you have Prime Video:  https://www.amazon.com/Farm-Fork-Love-Maurice-Johnson/dp/B09HLHDFT6
