Mike Gentry is in deep trouble.

Not only has he hidden his family’s financial difficulties from his wife, Susan…not only has he invested foolishly with his college roommate, Ricky…not only has he drifted away from his days of dependence on God… but Mike has promised some things to his family that are weighing him down. His family’s needs are unending, the credit balances are rising, the checking balance is perpetually miniscule, and the growing marriage tension between Mike and Susan is apparent to everyone, including their three young children. The tension in his family is crippling his peace, and his mind is going to a place darker than he ever imagined.

Then, one day the weather changed. A bright, early snow accosted him. Through it, he learns an unsuspecting lesson from—of all things—a snowball. This winter surprise leads Mike on an imperfect journey to a place of hope.

The Snowball covers all the themes familiar to families in America—success, failure, temptation, love, loss, dishonesty, confession, money, happiness, sorrow, conflict, healing, resolution. And revolution. Personal revolution. The characters are believably human, and out of their pain—and out of their eventual joy—begins the flow of hope.

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.

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. The 32 color illustrations and included commentaries will likely challenge some readers to reflect on how religion continues to shape the lives and culture of future generations. 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 Inspirational Author: Glory S. Davis

Interview with Glory S. Davis

Author of:

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.

FREE BOOK: Dead and Godless

Don_Amodeo_DeadGodlessFullCover

Dead & Godless

Christian afterlife adventure

FREE Nov. 22-26

 

Click HERE for FREE Copy

 

You’ve never read a Christian apologetics book like this

When outspoken atheist Corwin Holiday dies an untimely but heroic death, he’s assigned a chain-smoking, alcoholic angel as his defense attorney in the trial to decide the fate of his soul.

Today many cast Christianity aside, not in favor of another faith, but in favor of no faith. We go off to school or out into the world, and we learn that reality is godless and that free thinking means secular thinking. But must faith entail an end to asking questions? Should not the Author of Reason be able to answer the challenge of reason?

Dead & Godless is a smart and suspenseful afterlife adventure that explores the roots of truth, justice and courage. In these pages awaits a quest that spans universes, where the stakes are higher than life and death, and where Christianity’s sharp edges aren’t shied away from, because we’re not called to be nice. We’re called to be heroes.

James 4:14

Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.

It was a hot, humid day in central Georgia when the Ritchey siblings left the comforts of their home headed to Calvary Chapel near downtown Atlanta. Little did they know in less than five hours, that their lives would be dramatically changed.

Sometimes God works in mysterious ways to bring about his perfect Will in our lives, such was the case with the Ritchey children.
