Praying the Word of Grace

★ Award-Winning Book ★ Does your heart long to be immersed in God and His amazing grace? This book is filled to overflowing with the riches of God’s grace found in the pages of Scripture. For years, I have loved praying the Scripture, and have been captivated by the theme of grace that permeates it. When tragedy struck my world unexpectedly, these became my lifeline. In 2017, our firstborn son was born by emergency c-section in critical condition. In 2019, he passed away at 20 months old. In the wake of utter devastation, I felt absolutely empty and had no idea how to pray. At just the right time, Christ met me with an embrace of undeniable hope. Finding us in our darkness, God’s Word and His grace were the lights that lit our way home and gave us life again. In Part One of this book, you’ll hear: ★ Raw and honest personal stories from when I was rescued from despair by the Word of Life. ★ Exciting inspirations and revelations gathered from peering intently into God’s glorious grace. ★ Practical tools and insights that have helped me to deeply receive grace by faith, through Scripture and prayer. In Part Two, you’ll find: ★ A full treasure chest of over 200 grace-filled scriptures, carefully gathered from 20 different translations. ★ 31 rich, in-depth prayers, crafted from the scriptures, filled with declarations, affirmations, and ecstatic responses to the truth of who God is and all He has freely given us in Christ and His finished work. Above all, I pray this book leads you into personally experiencing the God of grace for yourself in greater and greater ways. Encounter after encounter, grace upon grace. May we find the amazing grace of God in the deep, the true and the real. Grace is the place where the brilliant and beautiful light of Heaven fills our lives, no matter how dark it may seem. Where we are transformed from the inside out. Where we are fully embraced by perfect love that reaches into our world, and we are loved to life and wholeness, right where we are … all because of who Love is. Whether on top of the mountain or down in the middle of the mess, God and His grace are all around us. Freely given to us, overflowing to us, right at our fingertips. We only need to reach out our hands … So, will you reach out and take the journey with me? “From His fullness we have all received grace upon grace.” (John 1:16, BSB)

Meet Jonah Priour

Wounded Wisteria

Cleo is a spirit suffering from her own destructive thoughts. Yearning for something to feed her hunger, she stumbles across those who are detrimental to her. The Great Peet’s influence is no different. When he asks, ”Why is it you feel you have no choice?” she is quick to reply: ”I hear your touch and feel your voice.” When the story continues in the eyes of Peet, we meet the alluring Violet, for whom his love flourishes. Drawn to Violet’s grace, yet pulled by Cleo’s heartache, Peet grapples between purity and substance. Presented entirely in verse, each character in Wounded Wisteria embodies a different earthly element, while the story becomes a study of the power of perspective, and a testament to the youthful essence of craving and vulnerability inside the heart of us all.

Meet Dianne Selchert

The hardest day of my life was retiring from my passion, which was teaching. I couldn’t have chosen a more rewarding career. I enjoy sharing with others, and in my retirement I have found another way to do that. My mind is full of ideas, and I have begun to create stories from those ideas. I love to write, spinning in tidbits of my own life on the South Dakota prairie into my books. Of course, I’ll never reveal which parts are purely fictitious and which parts are not!

How to cope with grief: a guide on how to heal and cope with bereavement

How to Cope with Grief: A Guide on How to Heal and Cope with Bereavement - ASIN B088HCJ7XQ

Life is quite unpredictable. One minute you’re blessed with health, love, and success, then the next minute, one thing has been painfully stripped away from you. The amount of pain you feel and the emotional turmoil you experience with loss is known as grief. When you grieve the loss of someone in your life, you’re suffering emotionally because you can’t seem to cope without them. It’s often hard comprehending how this loved one was taken away, and you’re left with a gaping hole in your life that you’re unable to fill.

Grief doesn’t necessarily mean losing a loved one. Many people grieve the loss of a pet or a job. They can also grieve if they’re going through a failed marriage that led to divorce or if they’re going through a health or financial crisis. Grieving means coping with a sudden loss, any loss. 
Grief is quite complicated, and whether it’s as severe as the death of a loved one or losing a job, both are quite personal to you. The way you grieve means you’re trying to deal with one of life’s biggest challenges, and it can often prove to be quite overwhelming. Bereavement, or complicated grief, affects many adult grievers, and they find themselves emotionally and physically overwhelmed. 

In this book, we will show you that grieving is a natural thing, and you don’t need to be alone. We delve deeper into what grief looks like so you can recognize the signs and see what to expect. We also offer some steps toward healing and finding peace. 

Disclaimer: This book is a guide for anyone who has faced a loss and is grieving. However, it is not an alternative to therapeutic professional help. Seeking professional and psychiatric help is also recommended to help you through your own grieving process.

A Life Singular (Volume One, Part One)

A Life Singular (Volume One, Part One) - ASIN B083TLD2Y6

Everyone has a life singular. One…Unique…Extraordinary.

One true Love for Life…One act of fate changes a Life forever…

Jeff Diamond built a life of influence and wealth by making choices for all the right reasons. He lived by the law of reciprocity; a lesson learned on the streets as a teenager with nothing but an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. Plagued by the scars of a violent childhood, he created his vision and fought for it. 

And once he no longer needed to fight for himself, he fought for others. Yet when Jeff’s dream girl, Lynn, is taken from him by an act of a jealous misfit from his home town; the millionaire realises how he had succeeded in many ways and many like him were destined to fail?  The secret, he discovers, lay in the pursuit of love and wisdom; life’s two magic ingredients. 

Lynn was gone; his remaining days now only to account for their life together to inspire young people to make his type of choices, and not that of the desperate misfit named García.

Part One of Volume One – an amazing journey of discovery for life’s experiences through this fourteen-part series of love, passion and hope…
