Battle Lines, Written By Dr. Jerry Yarnell
Price: $10.00
Quantity in Basket: none

The battle lines were drawn. Preparations for the final conflict were being made on both sides. The preparation for the war was different on both sides. They were both preparing their weapons and stocking up their supplies. Their weapons were as different as their demeanors. On one side, there were many swords. Each had different words imprinted on the blade. The words were: Fear, Worry, Doubt and Condemnations. They had shields with the words: Lies, Power, Deceit, Self and Accusations. On the other side of the battle line, all the swords were labeled "God's Word." Every shield had these words printed around their perimeter: Truth, Righteousness and Peace.

This war between God's people and the enemy of our souls has been raging for as long as anyone can remember. It is fought in the individual lives of all who have ever lived. Many people never realized they were in a battle--that ultimately was a battle for life or death.

Christmas on a Spoon
Written by: Jennifer Whipple, Illustrated by: John Joriff

A delightful tale of a family, trying to hide their disappointment as they go through the rituals of Christmas day. Grandfather arrives and brightens the day. As he tells a story of a discarded silver spoon found in a trash heap, given as a gift. They are reminded that the reason for the season is Jesus, that Christmas is not about the gifts or even the grand feast but that Christmas means, what Christmas means, despite our silver spoons.

About the Author
Jennifer Whipple had always dreamed of being a wife, a mother and an author—now she is all three. Jennifer and her husband Rick live in a quaint bungalow off a dirt road near the village of Dexter, Michigan. When Jennifer isn’t writing, she can often be found playing outside with her two little girls or tending her beautiful flower garden. Jennifer has been blessed with a wonderful family, friends, neighbors and a Heavenly Father who loves her very much. While she still dreams of doing many things, she has come to realize that with God, all things are possible…

Excerpt:
There were presents galore but no gun ship or sled;
and my list did not ask for new sheets for my bed.

I looked at Mom in her pink terry robe
as Santa Claus earrings hung from her lobes.

“Did you get what you wanted?” she asked. “Do you like your new toys?
Are you impressed by the rocket that makes realistic noise?”

I knew my response and without a considerate thought I asked her, “Are these the only presents Santa Claus brought?”

Dialogue With God Cheryl Wakes

We are fearfully and wonderfully made.

Dialogue with God will cause you to search. We are human computers. Every human being has a search engine. It’s called the heart. Whether we recognize it, or not, there is always a search, in our heart. We search for answers to why and where and even who. When we break down, for whatever reason, we need to be overhauled. We pick up viruses of doubt and confusion. God becomes so distant to us that we began to question, does He know what’s happening? Why doesn’t He do something? Unlike the fool who says, “There is no God.”

In Dialogue with God Cheryl Wakes shares personal evidence of God’s existence. Wakes makes known the majesty, the love, and the power of God, experienced on an intimate level. God has control over EVERYTHING. Each why, where, and who rest in the sovereignty of His perfect will. Capitalize on the freedom you have to Dialogue with God. You will be surprised by what He reveals to you. Seeking God’s presence is rewarding beyond measure.

Eclipse of the Heart

Eclipse of the Heart will reveal those hidden things that may be standing between you and a more fulfilling relationship with your Creator and those around you.

THERE ARE FIVE KEY EMOTIONS that can cause an eclipse of the heart; fear, denial, confusion, past hurts and unforgiveness. Canty draws upon her own life’s experience and pastorship to help the reader move beyond the pain and into the unconditional, loving and waiting arms of an Almighty God.

OFTEN, INWARDLY WE ARE AWARE—something is not quite right, but do we realize that those feelings can cause us to hide behind them.

  • Fear brings us into a condition or behavior pattern of helplessness and inactivity.
  • Denial is an act that causes us to contradict and disown the truth causing us to become prideful.
  • Confusion in the Mind causes disorder in our thought processes and inhibits godly insight.
  • Past Painful Emotions can bring about depression causing the heart to be covered—protecting it from future hurts.
  • Unforgiveness holds us captive to those who have hurt us and keeps us from moving forward.
  • Eclipse of the Heart will empower you to overcome the often hidden pains that cause us to have a stony heart, it will show you where to go to find healing, restoration and ultimately the freedom to walk in the fullness of life’s blessings.

God's Secrets for Dream Fulfillment
By Clifton Hubbard

Everyone has dreams. We’ve had them for as long as we’ve looked to the sky and dreamed of flying in rocket ships or the day we graduated from college on our way to successful careers. But are our dreams God’s dreams? In God’s Secrets for Dream Fulfillment!, Cliffton Hubbard shows us that for too long, many of us have been living under a “cloak of ignorance,” believing the lies of the devil, the world, and our own desires instead of seeking out God’s plan for our lives. It is only through turning our dream fulfillment over to our Heavenly Father and allowing Him to guide us on the path He has designed especially for us that we can ever be TRULY fulfilled, and as Hubbard explains through his own personal testimony and insightful Biblical knowledge, God’s dreams are more powerful and magnificent than anything we can imagine!

Grammie in A Story of Friendship: PB & J Without the J

Little Shelby has been having a hard time at school making friends, and when she comes home one day and doesn’t even want her favorite sandwich, PB & J without the J, her Grammie knows something is wrong. Turning to prayer, God gives Grammie the perfect verse: Proverbs 18:24, “A man [who has] friends must himself be friendly, But there is a friend [who] sticks closer than a brother.” From this wise scripture, Shelby begins to learn not only what it means to be a friend, but also that even when she is lonely, she has a perfect friend in Jesus right by her side.

About the Author
Cheryl “Grammie” Jones spent more than 18 years teaching kindergarten and pre-school children. Her children’s stories come from her many years in the classroom where most were developed to teach and train children much as Jesus taught through parables. The birth of her grandchild was the catalyst for her first book; "Grammie in A Story of Friendship: PB & J without the J". Initially, she wanted to creatively leave a legacy of foundational faith for her grand-daughter and all of her future grand-children; now her modern day parables are on paper for everyone to enjoy.

Living for God and Not for Ourselves

“If you want to stop the drama in your life then it has to be God’s way….” Those are the words of a woman who overcame a host of personal challenges to share her testimony in these pages, Living for God and Not for Ourselves. Andrea Marciele Jackson offers a candid, witty, sometimes humorous but always Word-directed account of what it means to make a commitment to the Lord. And she does this by giving us a very user friendly prescription to follow. Andrea’s prescription is found in the problem. She shows us, for instance, how easily we can wrap a lie in to another lie when the sin of adultery gets hold of our life. And how, despite being a victim of childhood sexual abuse (the cause for so many problems later in life), one can still find her way to Christ….

EASE FIRST HAIR CUT FEARS

Luke’s 1st Haircut, by Catherine Marek, a mom and hairstylist herself, may be just what you need to take the fear out of what can be a traumatizing experience for some children.

This brilliantly illustrated rhyming tale of Luke’s adventure to “The Barber Shop Place” with his grandfather is perfect for any young man preparing for that special right of passage, “going to the barber to get his first real hair cut”.

Whether your child is a little leery or excited about the prospect of going to the barber this book will fast become a family favorite. The story will take your little one right along with Luke as he experiences the sights, sounds and smells of a real barber shop. Luke starts off a little afraid of all the things that are going on but he triumphs in the end with handsome hair and a smile that will let your child know that going to the barber shop can be fun and is nothing to fear.


“Let’s face it. There are many things going on in a salon. The people getting their hair done can look a little scary. All this can be overwhelming to a child. Luke’s 1st Hair Cut can help set the record straight with kids about what really happens when they get their hair cut, which makes it a little less scary for them and makes my job easier.”
Jackie Bray,
Hair Stylist and Owner of Jacquelyn’s Hair Studio, Ferndale, Michigan

Creatively written and easy to understand…for our little ones. The illustrations being bright and positive will help prepare a toddler for their 1st hair salon experience. A must for any young family to read.
Lawrence Dick, Hair Stylist

"Having been in business nearly 37 years, I've seen and heard many a child's first hair cut. In many cases, it was a trauma for the child. The stylists and mothers telling the children "it won't hurt," only made it worse. So I feel this book would be a great asset to grandmothers, mothers and not to mention "The Beauty Shop."

Omniscient

IN TODAY’S SOCIETY, we are being watched, whether it’s the camera on the stoplight that takes our picture as we run the red light or the nosy neighbor next door who likes to relate the details of our comings and goings to whomever will listen.

BUT WHAT WOULD YOU DO if you discovered your every move had been recorded—every moment of joy, every moment of sin—and was currently on display in your basement? This is the dilemma faced by James Carlise, a typical thirty-something Christian whose seemingly perfect life is thrown into a whirlwind of confusion when he is forced to come face to face with every detail of his past and present—in living color.

IN HIS DEBUT NOVEL, DAVID SCHMITTOU tackles one of the most pressing issues facing Christians today—accountability. We often forget that even if no one is watching, and even if our sin is only in our own minds, God knows our hearts. The great news, though, is that we are not our pasts, and with God watching over us, we are loved and protected throughout all the days of our lives on Earth.

It is often while we are striving forward on one path that we stumble across and even greater road—and so it was with Margaret O’Rourke-Kelly. While working on her own campaign for a seat in the Michigan House of Representatives, O’Rourke-Kelly came across the records of Dora Hall-Stockman, the first woman to hold office in Michigan. This began her fascination with this often-overlooked historical figure but through Hall-Stockman’s plays, stories, poetry, songs and overwhelming contributions to the agricultural community, she has created an intriguing biography of a strong, patriotic woman of God, often ahead of her time, who overcame the constraints of her life and times to make a lasting contribution to American society.

"Let’s face it. There are many things going on in a salon. The people getting their hair done can look a little scary. All this can be overwhelming to a child. ‘Sara’s 1st Haircut’ can help set the record straight with kids about what really happens when they get their hair done, which makes it a little less scary for them and makes my job easier.”

Lawrence Dick, Hair Stylist

"Having been in business nearly 37 years, I've seen and heard many a child's first haircut. In many cases, it was a trauma for the child. The stylists and mothers telling the children ’It won't hurt’ only made it worse. This book will be a great asset to grandmothers, mothers and not to mention ‘The Beauty Shop Place.’"

Spilling the Beans of Jesus
written by LaVerne Moore-Salughter

This is a book complied of my personal encounters with God. It is written to inform the skeptics, the believers and nonbelievers, and those who are not sure what to believe when it comes to the unexplainable. I know that God is real. I have had encounters through dreams, visions, and discernment, auditory and inspirational writing. God can use any of us to warn others about unexpected events.

Since moving to Florida after several losses in my life, God has had the opportunity to use me beyond my imagination.

I have had several encounters with God that have proven to be true. At times I wasn’t sure what to say to the persons that God was directing me to talk to. I was afraid, and I doubted myself. I would get the same question asked over and over again, "How do you know these thing about me?"

My response is always the same, "I cannot explain it, it’s God’s business. It’s not about me, It’s all about Him. I’m just Spilling The Beans on Jesus.

Seek God.

Find God.

Get to Know God.

Fall in love with God.

Christian women are constantly bombarded with pressures and struggles concerning love, intimacy, and their bodies from the world’s system. Temptations run rampant, and sometimes, it’s hard to hear God’s voice in the midst of the chatter from well-meaning girlfriends, boyfriends they have no business being with, and last but not least, their own desires. In Stay Strong, La Leta Dorinda Palmer comes clean and shares what she has experienced in Bio Notes as a Christian woman continuing to fulfi ll Jesus’ purpose for her life. With the use of essays, short stories, poetry, Personal (Bible) Studies, and prose, she hopes to encourage readers (married, single, male, or female) to hide the Word of God in their hearts so they will not have the desire to sin against Him. Stay Strong gently reminds women to let patience have her perfect work so they will be whole, mature, and lack nothing.

Through these God-inspired writings, Christian women can take to heart and truly understand the precious gifts they have to offer the man who can only come from God with His seal of approval...redeemed!

The Story of Bella will make you cry, laugh, and hope for a better tomorrow, while realizing that today is worthy to be celebrated.

What’s Your Excuse?

We’ve all heard the excuses—“I’m too messed up for God,” “You can’t prove God exists,” “Christians are mean and intolerant, and I’m very open-minded”—and the list goes on and on.

What’s Your Excuse? answers this question for:

  • The non-believer who is seeking God. In What’s Your Excuse?, Michael Saunders uncovers and de-bunks many of the “myths” that non-believers use as justification for not turning to God and attempts to shine a light of truth for those who are honestly seeking it.
  • The new believer desiring to grow in their personal walk with Christ, whether they have just started walking with the Lord 10 minutes ago or 10 years ago. What’s Your Excuse? asks and answers many of the hard questions believers are often afraid to ask.
  • The mature believer who is looking for effective ways to share the Good News with a skeptical world.

So, like the title says—what’s your excuse?

When Sin Abounds: Get Naked and Bare All Before God
By Evangelist Dolores Jackson

The world is a scary place these days, rampant with sin, violence, and an overall disdain for the Word of God. As His children, however, we are not given to a spirit of fear, and it is up to us to shine the blazing light of God’s glory. Before we can let that fire glow, however, we need to make sure we have our relationship with Him on track. In When Sin Abounds: Get Naked and Bare All Before God, Dolores Jackson goes to the very essence of our spiritual walk, exploring pride and the origin of sin; it is only by allowing God to see into every corner of our soul that we can truly be free from sin, and by laying ourselves bare before our Heavenly Father, we can experience the greatest joy of our lives. Through Word-based exposition and prayer, personal anecdotes, and practical teachings about the world we live in, Jackson provides a solid foundation for both new Christians beginning their journey and believers searching for a deeper and more substantial relationship with the Lord, offering hope and insight to a fulfilling life that reflects God’s love.

Why is There a Lemon in My Fruit Salad?

If you occasionally find yourself in a sour mood, wanting to kick the cat or fire your boss, then this book is for you. Pamela Gossiaux can help you look at life’s difficult moments through laughter (and sometimes tears) as she shares her own struggles to become the person God wants her to be.

In Galations 5, God asks us to cultivate the fruit of the Spirit—love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control; but through her own trial and error, Pamela has found out that lemons are definitely NOT a fruit of the Spirit! Always ready to chat about her misadventures, Pamela shares with the reader how she tries to stay sweet even when life turns sour. She talks about her trials with health, jobs, marriage, grief and more as one thing after another hit her and her family throughout the early years of her marriage.

Through personal experience, she knows that God wants the best for us and will never forsake us. But sometimes He has to let us come to the end of our rope and slip off before we’re ready to let Him catch us. It’s then, and sometimes only then, that we can find true joy. Bitterness can become a thing of the past.

So grab a cup of tea, a box of Kleenex and let the cat curl up on your lap because this is a book that, once you start reading, you won’t want to put down.
