Self-inflicted Deadline!

I have several posts started but have not finished them because I’m trying to get Thy Kingdom Come up and running by the end of the month.  I’m SO close, that I when I am at my computer, I want to proof, not write!

If you haven’t taken a look at the Strong Delusion Trilogy, let me take just a moment to encourage you to do so.  I will admit that these books are not for everyone; however, I keep hearing comments like:

“I fell in love with your characters!  I hated to see…” (Well, I can’t tell you what they said, or I’d give away the ending of Angel of Light! 🙂 ) 

“After reading Angel of Light,  I wanted to know more about the End Times and started reading my Bible and other resources.”

“I have to admit, these books hit too close to home, but I needed to read them!”

“After starting A Moment in Time, I ordered one for each of my granddaughters.”

I also heard other comments, like “I want my daughter to read these, but not until she’s older.” So please beware that the content is for older teens and adults.

Someone else BookCoverPreview Thy Kingdom Comechallenged me to write about what I had experienced: like the life of a country pastor’s wife. As I considered this, I realized that I was writing about what I had experienced.  I didn’t get saved until I was seventeen.  I went to a secular college, saved but certainly not sanctified.  I didn’t experience all that Carrie Spangler does, but much of it was right across the hallway!

Thy Kingdom Come … Do we really want His kingdom to come?  How much do we know about the details of His second coming?  Will He really reign for a thousand years here on earth and will we, born-again believers, be here with Him? 🙂  How will people survive the Great Tribulation? Time for me to get busy! (This is my try at the cover, my daughter is finessing it!)

Seeing Life Through the Eyes of a Troubled Girl

BookCoverImage A MomentFor the next few days, I will try to entice you to get your FREE Kindle copy of A Moment in Time, by giving you several reasons why A Moment in Time may be a good book for you to read.  Honesty may not be the best policy in advertising, but it is my policy!  On April 18-22, A Moment in Time will be available FREE in Kindle form. 

I consider it a great responsibility every time I sit at my computer and pound on the keys. Whether it is for a post or a book, I truly consider it a calling of God, or I would not do it!  So, why should you even consider getting your copy of A Moment in Time? Let me share a corner of my heart concerning these books.

Recently, I talked with someone who had read my book, and the comment was made that the book hit too close to home.  This book was not just written to entertain. I write with a purpose, an overwhelming desire to teach, stretch, urge, grow, challenge, convict . . .  Life isn’t just about entertainment and happiness, so, consider the following:

Reason Number One: See Life Through the Eyes of a Troubled Girl

Carrie Spangler is a pastor’s daughter, but she is troubled by two major thoughts:

  • I was a mistake.
  • Am I really saved.

Perhaps one or both of those thoughts give you panic attacks about yourself or someone you love.  Carrie was not a “planned” pregnancy.  Her two older brothers are out of the house by the time Carrie enters junior high, and she rightly senses that her life is interfering with Pastor Spangler’s ambitions. Unfortunately, Pastor Spangler doesn’t handle the situation well.  Instead of dealing with those thoughts, he tries to override them with activity, not willing to face the truth about his little girl.

Honesty in the home is such a vital aspect of parenting.  When we push our true feelings aside instead of dealing with them Biblically, we have no idea how big the problem will get or the fallout that may occur.  “My daughter would never . . .”  What is your guarantee? If you are basing your security on anything but an honest relationship with Jesus Christ, beware!  Do you know your heart?  Are you speaking the truth there? Is your son or daughter speaking the truth as well?  Notice, I did not ask about their appearance or their actions.  I’ve seen “good” kids cover their true feelings because that’s the example they were shown; and I’ve seen “bad” kids display their actions simply because they are trying to get someone’s–anyone’s attention!

Is A Moment in Time a “how to” book on building relationship?  No, but as you read it, may it challenge you to look inside and take a “truth-test” concerning your walk with Jesus!

What is truth? John 18:38

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.  John 8:32
