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.”

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

We have all heard of Rosa Parks, who refused to give up her seat to a white man on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama in 1955, but did you know that nine months prior to this incident a teenager refused to give up her seat for a white woman on a bus?

Associated Press; restored by Adam Cuerden, Public domain, via Wikimedia Commons Rosa Parks being fingerprinted by policeofficer

The teenager, Claudette Colvin, born 1939, said the high school she attended in Montgomery, Alabama had observed Negro History Week in 1955, and she learned a lot about the Black freedom fighters like Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth. That day when she and her three friends were told to give up their seats for a white woman, Colvin, her history lessons still fresh in her brain, refused. In an interview with NPR, she stated, “It felt like Sojourner Truth was on one side pushing me down, and Harriet Tubman was on the other side of me pushing me down. I couldn’t get up.”

For this act of defiance, Colvin was arrested and placed on indefinite probation. Although Colvin’s refusal to give up her seat came nine months before Rosa Park’s did, the NAACP did not acknowledge her as the one who started the Montgomery bus boycott. The reason? Colvin became pregnant at the age of 16, and the NAACP believed the face of an unwed mother was not appropriate to represent the movement, and so they chose to use Rosa Parks instead.

However, this did not stop Colvin from becoming an activist. She later joined three other women —Mary Louise Smith, Aurelia Browder and Susie McDonald—as the plaintiffs in Browder v. Gayle, which legally put an end to racial segregation on public transportation in the state of Alabama.

Two things struck me as I read this story: 1) Colvin’s determination to defy the law came about as a result of her school having observed Negro History Week. At a time when pressure is being put on schools to ban certain books and to refrain from teaching African American history, I think this is significant. Browder v Gayle may never have come about had these young girls not been taught their history.

2) You may not always receive the recognition you deserve, but that should not stop you from joining with others who are fighting for the same cause you believe in. Most of us have only heard of Rosa Parks, and so we never stop to think of the thousands of unnamed persons who rallied behind the organizers of the boycott to elicit social change. Let us follow the example of Colvin and those who “believe[d] that a way will be made out of no way.” — MLK

Today is International Women’s Day, a day set aside to observe and celebrate the social, economic, and political achievements of women worldwide. Women have worked hard to achieve the status they enjoy today. They can be found in the boardroom, at the helm of Fortune 500 companies, in the courts of law, in operating theatres, and in the halls of Congress. Today, the United states boasts of its first female Vice President, Kamla Harris.

Still, gender equality remains an elusive dream for women all over the world. In some countries, girls are deprived of a formal education and women are not allowed to work outside the home. Here in the US, women are still paid lower than men. According to the Pew Research, women earned 84% of what men earned in 2020. However, this percentage varies according to age group with the smallest wage gap being among workers 25 to 34.

All this being said, women continue to make their voices heard in the workplace, in social activism, and in the home. A home without a woman/wife/mother is just a place to eat and sleep. It’s the woman who nurtures, cherishes and brings some sort of balance to the home. She fills hungry bellies, heals bruised knees as well as broken hearts, and makes sure your socks match.

On this International Women’s Day, I salute all the women out there, and especially female writers. We cannot all be a Jane Austen or a Maya Angelou, but in our own small way, we are turning out books by the hundreds —not just romances— but sci fi, suspense, detective, you name it, we write it. So, to my fellow female writers, I admire you, I applaud you, I celebrate you. Not just today, but everyday.

Read more about the great achievements of women here.
