A Soul Redeemed
by Deacon Alfred Fox

Having been shuffl ed around among various family members throughout his childhood to an adolescence spent in and out of juvenile correctional facilities, Alfred Fox learned how to survive on the streets and deal with incarceration. Against the backdrop of the Detroit Riots and the political upheaval of the Civil Rights Movement, Fox found himself young, married, and still on the wrong side of the law. Throughout it all, though, Fox has held on to the loving promises of his Heavenly Father, and instead of succumbing to the despair that could have overtaken him, he has motivated and encouraged those around him to reach their God-given potential and dream beyond their real or imagined prison walls. With honest personal narratives and heartfelt poetry spanning everything from his love for his wife to life in prison to the majesty of Black history, Fox inspires us all to seek God fi rst and never underestimate the power of His place in our lives.

Once Upon A Miracle
by Wanda D. Baylis

Wanda anxiously awaited the day she would finally give birth to her baby daughter. But as the doctor began to perform what seemed to be a rather routine C-section, Wanda heard the most terrifying and unexpected words she could have imagined:

“Where’s the baby? The baby is not in the uterus!”

Alexis Lynn Nicole (Nikki), grew for 7 months in her mother’s stomach—literally, not in her uterus—but in her abdomen. Unprotected by her mother’s womb, her entire left side was crushed. With wit and inspiration from her Grandmamma; Wanda courageously faced and is now sharing with others, in her book, Once Upon a Miracle, how to overcome life’s biggest challenges with a smile.

Wanda decided that she would give Nikki a lifetime of love in whatever time she was allowed to have her in this earth. Nikki’s life was a short 7 ½ weeks, before she finally succumbed to the unique challenges that accompanied her miraculous birth. Nikki’s courage and fighting spirit provided inspiration and joy to everyone who knew her. She even taught the most staunch unbelievers that it’s not over ‘til God says it’s over.

Once Upon a Miracle is a true story of a mother’s love and great faith. It will cause you to—laugh, cry, believe in miracles again and to come to understand that with God all things are possible!

Phenomenal Woman: The Dora Stockman Story

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.

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.

Poppy:A Story of Courage, Determination sand Faith

ByDr. Horace L. Stewart

Courage + Determination + Faith = Dreams Realized

Have you ever wanted something and all the cards seemed to be stacked against you? What if you were born at the wrong time, the wrong color, and on the wrong side of the tracks? But something inside of you knew you were destined for more than an average life. You wanted a life for yourself and your family that would positively impact generations to come. So you set aside fear and apprehension and courageously move toward your dream.

With sheer determination you start out. No matter how difficult or humbling the tasks you won’t give up, even though the circumstances dictate that you should. Now you are off and running so you think—but the next step runs you smack into a wall. Everything you worked for and dreamed of slips through your fingers. To add insult to injury; a series of events caused by your choices inadvertently leads to the death of your only son.

In order to bounce back from this last blow it takes something greater than yourself—it takes faith. You take that leap and start moving toward your dreams one more time. You know that you still have it in you to do something significant with your life. So you try again and this time your dreams are realized.

You are Never too Old or too Young to Dream

Poppy: A Story of Courage, Determination and Faith spans seven of the most difficult decades in American history and the life of Dr. Horace L. Stewart, one of eighteen black men specifically selected in the 1940s to integrate Air Force Basic Training. In his life he experienced segregation to integration, the Great Depression and World War II. Dr. Stewart self-described as a gangly dark skinned colored boy went from the cotton fields of central Texas, to high school dropout, to airman, to teacher, to doctorate in education which proves that anything is possible with courage, determination and faith.

"I sing because I'm happy, I sing because I'm free, For His eye is on the sparrow, And I know He watches me." - Civilla Martin

That Saturday began like any other day for mother of three and registered nurse Rebecca Boone Kozowyk. After spending the day training to become a certified CPR instructor, she returned home to a family barbecue with her husband, sons and parents. When her sixteen year- old son, David, asked her for the truck keys to drive his girlfriend home she handed them to him without a second thought. Just a few hours later she and her husband were awakened by a neighbor informing them that David had been in a terrible wreck on the way home, and he was being airlifted to a level one trauma center.

The grave news awaiting them when they arrived at the hospital was devastating; David had suffered a catastrophic brain injury, both of his lungs were collapsed and badly bruised. They were told to gather their family together and begin making final arrangements for their son, because he would not survive his injuries.

With nowhere else to turn, Rebecca placed all of her faith and hope in God and cried out to Him. Her desperate prayer for her son’s survival and recovery set forth a miraculous chain of events that would take her and her son on a journey from completely shattered to Beautifully Broken.
