God Speaks.a true story by Beverly A. Brown

When God does something miraculous, sometimes you see it and sometimes you don’t. I can truthfully say, that I have seen a miracle. I never expected it to happen. The circumstances surrounding it didn’t make much sense to me at the time, because my daughter was dying. My daughter…a child whose biography is full of challenges. But God had a special purpose for her life. Now I can understand why He chose her. She was a perfect candidate for God to work through—in ways that most of us can’t even imagine. Something supernatural happened to my daughter. God worked in her life in such a way that revealed a unique revelation of His presence. It was a never to be forgotten experience, creating a phenomena, which is now burned into many people’s memories. One author said it this way…God is speaking, always speaking; not through channels you might have expected. But He is always speaking. My daughter’s life and her death would make that statement ring true in a way that no one could have predicted. Her legacy would live on long after she was gone.You probably have no idea who Tara Nicole Brown is, but what a story it tells; her story.If you have ever wondered…is God really involved in my life? or…is there really life after death?, then this story is for you. It’s an exceptional story. Piecing it together has been my labor of love these past four years. I think it’s important to share how we’ve survived times of adversity and tragedy, so that we don’t lose heart; which is part of the reason I wrote this book. All of us go through dark times in our lives. When life seems dark and hard to understand, many times we doubt God’s presence. But we are not alone. God is with us. As you dig a little deeper in this story, you will discover, He is with us…even in the valley of the shadow of death.My daughter’s life was a great testimony of God’s presence, His love, and true purpose. Now her memory lives on in the hearts of those who knew her, and even in those who didn’t. She had a rare occurrence take place in her life, a gift I can’t explain any other way than by saying that she was a child of God, and He came to her in a special way. It was a real miracle. But it takes knowing about her life before that divine encounter for the miracle to be understood.So, I’ll just start right here and tell you the rest of the story…

Feels Like the First Time: A True Love Story by Shawn Inmon

“The Wonder Years” meets “The Notebook” in this true-life coming-of-age love story.

If you remember your first love, your first date and your first kiss, then Feels Like the First Time will take you back to those moments. Shawn met Dawn when she moved in next door in 1976. Soon, they were best friends, then became each other’s first loves. Shawn was outgoing but bookish, Dawn, beautiful and reserved. Their storybook romance came to an end when Dawn’s parents forbid them to see each other.

They obeyed – for 27 years, until a chance meeting swept them up in a storm of emotions and memories. Can the sweet bond of first love not only survive into middle age, but flourish?

Feels Like the First Time lets you share in the magic of young love in small town America in the 1970s. No matter how much the world changes, some things – timeless music, high school dances, making out in the backseat of a Chevy Vega, and of course true love – will always remain the same.

The Life and Times of Jesus: From His Earthly Beginnings to the Sermon on the Mount (Part I) by Michael J. Ruszala and Wyatt North

To write a book about Jesus is a challenging task; to live a life like Jesus’ is more challenging still. Though not primarily a work of theology or of spirituality, this popular history intends to help the words and deeds of Jesus come alive for contemporary readers. In Jesus’ day, he was a polarizing figure; one was either for him or against him.

Today, even many who are familiar with the story of Jesus are unmoved. There are a number of reasons for this, but one of them is that we have forgotten the history of which Jesus came to be part; and we have also forgotten how we fit in. When God acted in Jesus, he acted in history, and that history came with particular cultures, presuppositions, and memories of its own. Without an understanding of these things, Jesus’ polarizing words and deeds become blunted because their backdrop has been removed.

The Life and Prayers of Saint Padre Pio by Wyatt North

One part biography, one part prayer book, this book is an essential for any Christian.

The foundation for Padre Pio’s work in the world was love. His love of God became intertwined with his love of humanity so that the two became inseparable and unwavering.

Padre Pio is notable not for his erudition or even his teachings, per se, but for the man he was and the intercessor he continues to be. Pio gave himself to Christ as a spiritual victim for the souls of sinners. With sweetness, humility, and good cheer, he brought everyone who encountered him closer to Christ.

People who met him understood immediately that they were in contact with a Christlike figure. Those who attended his Mass and saw his union with the divine felt as though they had witnessed in person Christ’s Passion on the Cross. During his lifetime, Padre Pio brought vast numbers back to devotion to Christ, and, as he himself foretold, in death he has been able to do still more.

All books in The Life and Prayers series come complete with a Touch-or-Click Table of Contents, divided by each section.

Enjoy.

Understanding the life of Jorge Mario Bergoglio is essential to understanding how Pope Francis shepherds his flock – and the key is mercy.

What exactly do people find so attractive about Pope Francis? There is something about him that captivates and delights people, even people who hardly know anything about him.

Aldo Cagnoli, a layman who developed a friendship with the Pope when he was serving as a cardinal, shares the following: “The greatness of the man, in my humble opinion lies not in building walls or seeking refuge behind his wisdom and office, but rather in dealing with everyone judiciously, respectfully, and with humility, being willing to learn at any moment of life; that is what Father Bergoglio means to me.”

This book uncovers the life of the 266th Bishop of Rome, Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

The Life and Prayers of Saint Francis of Assisi by St. Francis of Assisi and Wyatt North

One part biography, one part prayer book, The Life and Prayers of Saint Francis of Assisi is an essential book for any Christian. Saint Francis of Assisi is quite possibly the most popular of all Christian saints. Perhaps it is his adoration for all living things or his unrelenting generosity that has made so many people open their hearts to him. Perhaps it is the deep conviction and piety expressed not only by the saint himself, but in his name, in the Franciscan orders throughout the centuries.Whatever the reason, in a world that is quickly developing in a direction diametrically opposite to the saint’s own simple asceticism, Saint Francis of Assisi still stirs strong emotions and compassion. How close he found God, in the very nature around him, is inspiring.All books in The Life and Prayers series come complete with a Touch-or-Click Table of Contents, divided by each section. Enjoy.
