If the ministry that brought condemnation was glorious, how much more glorious is the ministry that brings righteousness! – 2 Corinthians 3:9 (NLT)

What would it look like for you to be bold, transparent, free, and truly the person God created you to be? What would it look like for you to BE YOU?

In this four week mini Bible Study journey with author Heather Bixler as she shares some of her personal struggles with you in an effort to be transparent with you, the reader.

God wants us to shine and radiate His glory, but truly this can only be done through our brokenness. God is looking for transparent women to help guide others to a true and intimate relationship with Jesus through the sharing of their own brokenness, and compassion for one another.

If we are truly going to shine for HIS glory in the new ministry of HIS righteousness then we must learn the art of being who God created us to be. We often think this is found through performance and behavior changes, but when we have given our life over to Jesus then everything God created us to be is found in the Holy Spirit that is already living within us.

Come and unwrap the beauty that is already within through the four week mini Bible Study, Be You!

A World Without End

 

Christian Fiction

Throughout the ages, many different religions have presented their idea of the origins of mankind. Ideas of God are represented worldwide in an attempt to provide people with three specific answers. The questions that are asked include where do we come from, why are we here, and where are we going after death. Those that are skeptical of religions often believe that religion is no more than a crutch, a way of making people feel more comfort as they progress through life, moving toward the ultimate debt that all people have to pay. However, for those that are true believers, individuals that have found that the religion of Christianity provides them with the truth about the nature of God and reality that brings them the most comfort, there are controversial ideas surrounding this religion, some of which are seldomly discussed.

In A World Without End, a story that is fictional in nature, but one that provides an interesting perspective on the origins of God and mankind as taken from the Bible. Familiar stories such as the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, the destruction of the Tower of Babel, Noah the Great Flood, and of course the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, are well known throughout most of the world today. There are common beliefs that are taught within the context of the church, what true believers tend to believe. However, there are fringe concepts, those that are both controversial, and also truths that are not properly understood, many of which are discussed in A World Without End.

This story presents the quest of two fallen angels, Allaric and Llyrica, that have realized they made the wrong choice. In a battle between the Archangel Michael and Satan in Heaven, they found themselves hedged on the wrong side. Through their choice of following Satan, they were cast into the depths of hell, where Satan plans to avenge their defeat. Through interactions with fallen angels that become demons, in their quest for the souls of mankind, Allaric and Llyrica try to find salvation with the help of the angel Metatron, in their quest to reenter the Gates of Heaven.

A World Without End discusses many controversial topics such as the 5 Detriments of Mankind, the real reason that Adam and Eve were cast out of the Garden of Eden, and the real path of Salvation. It also helps you understand the Immaculate Conception and the true nature of Mary the Blessed Mother of God. Finally, through the eyes of Allaric and Llyrica, we get to witness everything from the point of creation, to the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Savior of Mankind, and the plan that God has for all of us after the Second Coming of Christ.

So journey with us in this fictional account of two angels, Allaric and Llyrica, on their quest for salvation, for knowledge, and how they discover that this truly is a world without end.

Interview with the Inspiring Marilyn Redmond

MarilynRedmond

Interview with the Inspiring
Marilyn Redmond

Author of:

The Real Meaning of 2012 –
Heaven on Earth

 

How would you describe the amazing work that you do?

I have been blessed with communication to the spirit world. The silent voice inside from meditation guides me and relates information to share in channeling, writing, and counseling others. Some people label this voice as angels, guides, masters, archangels and God. I am fortunate to hear all these voices.

 

You have been able to trigger dramatic healing in your clients. Can you tell us about the therapies that you do and the types of challenges that you are most effective in treating?

I love to help people heal their medical, relationships, or life problems. When you understand that all conditions represent a fear-based reaction to an event, it is possible then to bring in that incident under hypnosis of the client. As the experience is shared in this altered-state there is less drama to the event than typical talk therapy. In regression the energy can easily shift into a loving resolution by understanding the bigger picture of the circumstances. Releasing the anger and finding forgiveness and compassion for those involved brings harmony and freedom from the past energy. It is like cutting the bonding chains from the past to be able to be available emotionally in the present. The old energy dispels for the love to replace it. You are free from the cause of the condition or issue. I call this Therapeutic Hypnosis.

Past life regression therapy does this on a deeper level. Karma is needing to be resolved in this life to allow experience in your full life in the moment. When seeing how the events played out and why these situations were necessary even if traumatic brings relief and insight into them. The awareness brings healing with forgiveness.

I also use flower essences to support the emotional shifts that need to be unblocked for the energy to flow. They add more loving energy to the person’s being, so they can move into a higher consciousness by accepting why it occurred and how it benefited them, allowing the old negative energy to flow out.

 

When did you know that this was your calling?

It has evolved over time. I found in counseling, when I knew what the problem was, I instinctively knew how to address it for healing. Then the voices became louder and more explicit. They now lead me through the process and tell me which flower essences to use with the appropriate affirmations to support the essences as the person takes them.

When I began channeling, it became obvious this was a gift. I channel information that provides deeper information to help alleviate the difficulties. John, The Divine, provides the information that may be emotional, from a past life, or a spiritual understanding for the person to apply in their lives. Recently when a woman came for healing, John told her of a past life that was a major basis for her PTSD. The awareness of this information touched her and the energy shift occurred. Her friend even noticed the difference she told me.

 

What inspired you to write, “The Real Meaning of 2012?”

2012_book_cover-1While channeling on my regular third Saturday of the month, spirit told me the topic they were presenting that day. That afternoon, I was told the information I just presented would be the basis for a book. They wanted more people to become aware of this information. I just followed directions.

 

Can you explain to us, what 2012 refers to and why we should take note of this at the end of 2014?

2012 refers to the change in energy that happened on Dec. 21 st of that month. More and more light increased coming to earth from beyond to bring up the energy of the planet’s consciousness from dying and fear to living with love. The planet had been dying from the group consciousness on earth of destroying the planet by a lack of conservation and eco friendly treatment of the natural environment and resources. The planet was dying over 70 years ago, and cried for help. For the last 20 years additional light has been sent to the planet to revive its consciousness. The actual shift to the consciousness for a loving existence rather than to die was on Dec. 21, 2012.

With this additional loving energy, we are now moving beyond third dimensional energy of fear with it duality of good, bad, right, wrong, criticism and judgment, into the fifth dimension often called grace, unconditional love, or “Heaven on Earth. “

 

You describe a coming “heaven on earth.” But we have global illnesses, global warming, political unrest, and religious intolerance & extremism and so many other harsh realities. What would you say to those who have huge doubts simply because the world seems to be getting worse?

Yes, it appears to be getting worse. However, if you go beyond appearances, to the spiritual changes occurring you see that these are coming up to leave the energy of the planet and the people. This negative energy has to become conscious and expressed to leave space for the love to replace it. You are witnessing the end times described in the Bible where the third dimension is exiting or disappearing so that the grace of God will be the influence replacing the past fear. In third dimension, there is illness, unrest, intolerance and extremism because of the darkness in consciousness. However, as these negative energies are released, there is then space for healthiness without disease, peace without war, and unity without conflict.

Yes, the planet’s weather is changing into a Mediterranean environment where our weather will be like heaven on earth. This means the planet is returning to what the Garden of Eden enjoyed before the fall from grace. Below the visual surface, there are shifts of energy in all parts of our lives occurring that will support a love-based society. That will feel like heaven on earth, as the negative energy will leave over the next 20 or so years gradually as more and more healthy energy emerges.

 

Is there a message here for those whose faith does not embrace the afterlife or the existence of a “heaven?”

Heaven means there is only a loving spirit in which everyone has joy and gratitude living in the presence of that love/God within and all around us. The abundance and prosperity has always been there, it was veiled by the fear of the third dimensional duality and darkness. With the sunlight of the spirit now available to dispel the darkness, heaven will become a reality.

We should take note, as this is a gradual evolution and cannot happen over night. However, when people are aware that they can change to a happy life without fear and worry, they will want to do the inner work to achieve this experience. When your insides match the outsides, the love within and the love around us is accomplished we will become one in this love. Each person has the choice to change his or her lives to align in love.

If we had, a magic wand to do it all at once, our emotional circuit would go poof! You would end up in a hospital. Therefore, a gradual change is necessary, but I suggest you will see it is important to be ready when the final steps are ready.

 

What do you hope readers will take away from reading “The Real Meaning of 2012?”

I hope everyone will see that they can transform their lives into love by choice. With the abundance of more light coming to earth, they are no longer victims of those controlling our lives. The fear indoctrination for the last several thousand years, is no longer viable. We quit reacting to the outer forces that prevail in controlling and manipulating us to go within for guidance and claim our source. It does not matter the label for this beneficent energy within the universe and us. Whatever name as God, love, a Creative Intelligence, or the Spirit of the Universe, makes no difference. We can all come together into the peace on earth we have always wanted. We can all join in the 1000 years of peace that is evolving.

 

What do you recommend to those who are in the throws of chaos and challenge but are eager to transition to a happier mindset? What can they do to change their perceptions and circumstances?

Our lives are always about choice. Since we cannot serve two masters, it is necessary always to choose love, God or your own description of God. This will sustain you as you align in the higher positive energy. You can remember that this is a lesson once again to make that choice of not reacting from fear but to respond in love and move beyond into new lessons. People are about as happy as they make up their minds to be, said Abraham Lincoln. I find that to be true. Are you going to listen to the fearful messages from the ego, or move into the love found in your heart?

 

You have written other helpful books. Can you tell us a bit about your other publications?

Yes, my first book was, “Roses Have Thorns, Encouragement on evolving from pain to joy. “ It is a poetry book that chronicles my painful past into finding God. The book has helped many on the path through their struggles to see they are not the only one, having these unbearable situations and lessons. It can waken your emotions which is a wonderful opportunity when before we were shut down.

My E-books cover spiritual solutions for spiritual growth. “Spiritual Alignment, Are you ready for 2012” further adds additional information to the topic of the “Real Meaning of 2012”. “Incest, Love Heals the Soul” shares my experience and solution. Too many people do not have information to change and reclaim their souls and identities. I counsel many in this predicament.

The E-book, “Peace on Earth, Finding a New Life” has valuable information showing how to achieve you own inner peace on earth from being a victim. “Vasanas: The Gifts that Show Us the Way” explains that your lessons actually are the issues you need to heal to move forward in your spiritual growth. “All Time Victim: Domestic Violence” is the story that won an
international writing contest for me. It brings hope to those in domestic violence.

My forthcoming book is, “Paradigm Busters, Reveal the Real You”. It is a companion to the book “The Real Meaning to 2012”. It is the ultimate “how to” book for the steps to actually take for moving out of the past, fear, and traumas of the ego. Examples and answers for many lessons in life are represented in this book. Real stories of those who have moved into a healthy, happy life through doing the work outlined in this book are shared. I hope to have it out before the end of this year.

 

 

You have done so much to enlighten and to bring about healing. What are you working on now?

I am finishing the book I just mentioned. I talk every week with another author in Australia as we are putting together an audio and CD series of discussions for people to enjoy and hear information to improve their lives. I also have clients for counseling, do readings, offer free healings each week, and do art commissions and my covers to my books.

Overcoming Adversity with Chasity Strawder

Chasity Strawder

Interview with
Inspirational Author:

Chasity Strawder

 

 

Interview:
Your story is such an inspiration. I think that there are a lot of people who are facing some of the extreme challenges you faced and will see you as a role model for overcoming challenge.

I think the best way to tell your story is to first talk about how things went wrong and then how you triumphed and made things right.

Can you share with us the events that caused you to face some of your darkest days?

After becoming pregnant with my second child, I was diagnosed with gastroparesis in pregnancy. My symptoms were pretty extreme to the point of severe abdominal pain, vomiting, and dehydration. I spent all of my pregnancy in the ER or being admitted as a patient to the hospital. The medical expenses were overwhelming so my husband and I became homeless. A year later, my husband was laid off his job, and we became homeless again. I overcame this obstacles by keeping my faith in God and never giving up in spite of the odds that were against me. I determined in my mind that I would be an overcomer.

 

When things were at their worst, what kept the light of hope lit for you?

Worship my light of hope. I just cried and embraced God’s amazing love for me. I knew that he would eventually bring me out.

 

When people survive such overwhelming challenges, there is a point where there is a shift and things start to change for the better. What was it for you that helped to get your life on a road to recovery?

Being accepted as a graduate student into my master’s program was a huge victory for me. There was a process to go through, and I was tearfully joyful upon receiving my acceptance letter.

 

When did you start to aspire and work toward becoming a teacher and school leader?

I always knew that I wanted to be a teacher since the age of about twelve so everything about my life surrounded accomplishing that dream from that point on. After resigning as a teacher in 2007, I took some time for myself to regroup and renew my focus on what I wanted to do in the future. After going through my near death experience, the timing just felt right to go after it.

Chasity-Strawder-BrokenImage1-1

How and why did you decide to share your story and write your book, Broken For The Promise?

And what is the significance of the title? Earlier this year (2014), I started to think about and journal the details of that very challenging time in my life. I felt like God was telling me to turn all of this into a book. I stepped out on faith, and got it published. The significance of the title describes the process of what I went through to bring forth some amazing things in my life, the birth of my son and my master’s degree to become a principal.

 

Your life is a model for happiness. You’re married with 2 sons and have a thriving career. What was the most important reason that you were able to get from a place of despair to where you are now?

The most important reason for me to get through all of that was to help somebody else. I want someone to look at me and say, “Because of you, I didn’t give up!”

 

How do you hope your book, Broken For The Promise, will help others?

I hope that my book will renew the strength and faith of others. There is really purpose in pain. God can create something wonderful out of pain & devastation.

 

If someone is in your shoes right now, and they have lost their way and their faith, what do you want them to know?

I want them to know that God loves them. Never stop believing and holding on to him with everything in you. He will see you through until the dawn!

About This Project

 

This is definitely not your average children’s Bible! If you thought the bestseller “Go The F**k To Sleep” was inappropriate for story-time with kids, you haven’t seen anything yet! Leave it to the Bible!

How well do you know the Good Book?
Awkward Moments 2
What began as a private online gag among interfaith friends quickly grew into a book to meet the demands of adoring fans! Combining actual Bible verses with more than 30 whimsical original illustrations, Awkward Moments uses humor to encourage people from all walks of faith to think, perhaps for the first time, about how the Bible continues to shape our culture.

Let’s be honest – there are some things in the Good Book that are just… awkward! There are verses we’d like to forget or that have been changed throughout the centuries. There are many verses you’ve never heard before in church, let alone seen in your average children’s Bible! Not to mention the verses that have been added over the centuries!

Awkward Moments Children’s Bible is much more than an irreverent book for your coffee table! Readers of all faiths will find themselves laughing out loud while being encouraged to think about the Bible in a new way.

New in Volume 2:

STILL NOT FOR KIDS! If you thought our first bestseller was inappropriate for kids, this volume is barely appropriate for adults! More incest, genocide, talking animals, wrestling matches, martyrs, abortion, magic, homosexuality and selficide! What would Jesus do? You might be surprised what His own family thought of Him!

From the opening foreword by Evangelical pastor, author, and professor Dan Kimball (of Vintage Faith Church), to the challenging commentaries in the second half of the book, Awkward Moments Children’s Bible is much more than an irreverent book for your coffee table! Readers of all faiths will find themselves laughing out loud while being encouraged to think about the Bible in a new way.

The Goal? Awkward Moments encourages readers to really understand what is in their Bibles and think for themselves about the context of Biblical teaching.

If readers happen to laugh out loud and enjoy the interactive puzzles and games in the mean time – it’s just an added bonus!

Interview with the Inspirational Christina Lockett

Interview with
Minister and Educator

Christina Lockett

author of:

Love Lost, My Story
A Message of Hope

 

 

INTERVIEW:

You wear so many important hats as a mother of teenage sons, an ordained minister, choir director and Science teacher. When did you realize that being an author was also within you?

A few years back before I experienced the second divorce I wanted to share my experiences. Looking back I am glad I waited because I did not expect my life to turn upside down. It is still difficult to embrace author as a title because I really just want others who are going through what I went through not to feel hopeless and give up. The best way to share my story and message of hope was to put it in a book and now I am a author.

 

Your book “Love Lost, My Story” is a message of hope. Who is it this message of hope for?

The message of hope is for women and men. People who have experienced failed relationships, disappointments, and unexpected life challenges. The message of hope is for anyone who had to start all over again after a trial or heartbreaking situation.

Chritina-Lockett-book

Was it a difficult decision to share such personal experiences, despite the comfort and inspiration this would bring to others?

Yes it was difficult because I had to be totally transparent if I really wanted someone to be helped. It was also difficult because I knew some of my family and friends did not know all of the details surrounding my divorces. Many have read the book and shared that they were shocked mostly because I always tried to stay positive and they had no idea how much I was going through.

 

Your Christian faith appears to be at the core of strength and positivity. What advice do you have for those who are struggling spiritually?

I advise those who are struggling spiritually not to be mad at God for their current challenges. Take comfort in your spirituality. Look beyond yourself and know that when the storm is over you will be able to help another person with similar challenges.

 

As you prepared this book as an inspirational resource for others, did you experience any additional catharsis or personal healing?

Yes, I shed a few tears while writing and thinking back but I was proud of myself. I was glad about how far I have come spiritually and mentally. I realized how powerful forgiveness was as well.

 

When people experience repeat disappointments in their life it is difficult to maintain a positive outlook. What advice do you have for those who find having a hopeful outlook to be very difficult?

The main thing is not to beat yourself up and blame yourself. Take a self-evaluation and make necessary changes. Surround yourself with people who will be honest with you and most all positive and encouraging. It is difficult some times to remain positive but if you have positive people around you it will make a difference.

 

Many people who have experienced life challenges like you may also aspire to writing and sharing their ordeals and revelations to help others. What advice would you have for those who have a message but are apprehensive about the publishing business?

If you are truly truthful about the situation it will be a little easier to share. You have to ask yourself the hard questions. Will sharing my personal business keep a person from committing suicide because they feel hopeless? Do I expect others to have a life changing moment because I shared my personal business? If your answer is yes to the hard questions it is worth sharing and you cannot hold back. Go for it!

 

Now that you have experienced the power of written words to minister to those in need, do you have any additional plans to continue your inspirational writing?

Yes, I want to continue writing so I guess I have to embrace my new title..Author.

Sometimes I Look at Sinners:
A Collection of Short Stories

 

 

Available on Amazon

 

 

Glory you have had an amazing career of over 43 years as an educator. During any of that time did you consider any writing projects?

 

Yes, off course. I was an English and speech teacher in secondary school. I wrote many skits, plays, and speeches for students. But, I was too busy to do anything professional.

 

When did you realize that there was a writer in you yearning to express herself?

 

Near the end of my career, I attended the South Mississippi Writing Project Summer Institute at the University of Southern Mississippi. Because I was complimented and encouraged, I caught the bug there and decided that whenever I got the chance, I would try my hand at it. After retiring, I was so bored that I started writing meditations. From there, I wrote eight stories which I published.

Glory Davis - Book
Today we will be discussing your book:
Sometimes I Look at Sinners: A Collection of Short Stories.
Is this your first published book?

Yes, it is.

What was your inspiration to write this book?

Many people look at America and worry about the economy; I, however, looked at America and worried about man’s separation for God and his propensity to sin. I thought that I would try to do something to put America back on the course toward being the religious country that it was in the beginning… for which it was founded.

 

Tell us what readers can expect to find in:
Sometimes I Look at Sinners: A Collection of Short Stories.

 

My readers can expect to fine eight delightful stories with religious themes. They can also expect to learn or be reminded of religious truths about honesty, dying, lost hope, deception, fornication, and many other forms of sin.

 

What do you hope will be the impact on readers after they read your short stories?

I hope that they will find the lessons presented in a funny and entertaining way. However, I want the readers to take the stories seriously, to recognize and to internalize each of the themes. It is my wish that my stories win souls for Christ.

 

Do you have your next writing project in the works?
If so, can you give us any hints of what comes next?

 

I have completed a book of meditations, Outside the Gates of Heaven, which I plan to publish by the end of this year. I have also completed a self-help book, Escape for Mothers of Prisoners. I plan to publish it soon after my second book. After those books are published, I am going to write sequels to several of my stories.

 

What advice would you give to other writers who are in a sense “waiting to retire” to pursue their writing passions?

 

I would advise them to read, read, read and read some more. It is also helpful to keep a journal, not only a reflective one, but one in which they record descriptions of people, places, and interesting conversations. The journal will be very helpful, especially when writing fiction. Lastly, I would advise them to learn the business of publishing and of promoting books.
