A Higher Calling


A Higher Calling: 

Moving Forward in Your Walk With God

If anyone would come after me let him deny himself, take up the cross, and follow me. (MATTHEW 16:24)

There is a path that God has set for your life––a path that will allow you to be shaped and fashioned unto the measure of the statue of the fullness of Christ (Ephesians 4:13). It is up to you alone to decide to turn from your previous path, take up the cross, and walk with Him.

Elder Shannon Fitzgerald Thomas used to lean on his own understanding and seek the pleasures of the physical world. But then God illuminated his true purpose: to share the good news and spread the gospel to all His people. God made his purpose clear and guided him from his former life of sin and showed him into the way of His light. He now presses toward the mark for the High Calling of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:14).

You too have a path set before you; you can walk with Christ and live in truth and goodness. In A Higher Calling: Moving Forward in Your Walk With God, Elder Shannon Fitzgerald Thomas reveals the guidance God has instilled in him to share with the world so that all of God’s children might once again hear His voice and continue their walk with Him. 

He is waiting for you; follow Him.

The Twisty Passages of Time


K.D. Loveridge’s The Twisty Passages of Time is his debut YA novel.

Twisty Passages follows the life of a young boy whose sister died one year prior. As he is about to enter the sixth grade, his sister’s death leads him to a great secret: His family are part of a colony of refugees in time that are hiding in the present from an enemy that nearly brought their people to the brink of extinction. Faced with an uncertain future, he must first endure bullies at school while learning to cope with the new powers he has received to survive in the dystopian world of his grandparents.

Liam Fennly had a typical childhood growing up in a small oceanside town called Stonehelm, Oregon. He’s the youngest of five children and has a best friend named Richard Sommers. The pair grew up together, attending elementary school, sharing a paper route, eating lots of junk food, and playing video games.

On Liam’s eleventh birthday, his sister, Mariam, died unexpectedly from a mysterious illness that took the lives of fifteen other teenagers living around Stonehelm all within a few months. Exactly one year later, two crows bring him clue that her death may have been a lie. Facing sixth grade, Liam soon discovers his family has been keeping a great secret from him. Everything typical about his childhood is about to end as he begins a journey to discover where his family came from and what happened to his sister.

This is a great book for kids between the ages of 10-18. A great gift for parents of children that loved books like Percy Jackson, Fabel Haven, or Leven Thumps.

The Good Old Days


The Good Old Days: 

A Reflection Upon What We Individually and Collectively Choose NOT to Recall

Looking back on the past, it is often easy to remember the best of times and forget the worst. It is easy to overlook the harsh realities of life as it once was and take for granted things that were once seen as extraordinary. 

In The Good Old Days: A Reflection Upon What We Individually and Collectively Choose NOT to Recall, author Rick Spleen shares his perspective on the way the past is remembered and why we should respect those who came before us: their toils, efforts, and achievements. It is especially important to recognize those of the founding generation who made possible the rapid advancements for humanity in the last 250 years. 

From fashion to technology, from war to medicine, this book takes a closer look at our world, by reflecting upon the past to provide a better perspective of today. The world we live in, and humanity, may not be perfect, but we’ve come a long way from where we once stood, in a relatively very short period of time.

Author: Rick Spleen. Publisher: Atlantic Publishing Group, Inc. About the Author: Originally raised in the suburban Philadelphia, PA area, Rick Spleen has lived on both the East Coast (NYC) and West Coast (LA), and in many states in between, as well as in Mexico and the Caribbean.

Young Library at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, KY. He was the winner of his age group in the 2016 Long Beach Triathlon in California. He is a student of history and is well read, principally in non-fiction and mostly on the topic of the Revolutionary period of the United States. He also considers himself an outdoorsman who enjoys hunting, fishing, sailing, scuba diving, and skiing.

The Intuitive Messages Handbook


The Intuitive Messages Handbook

The messages in this book are a combination of my education, experiences as well as missives that come to me from a source that I cannot define. You may call it deep intuition, a gift from beyond or the source. I write the words that come through my hands, when I read them back, I feel inspired and enlightened. I know that anyone reading the narration needs the energy being relayed and will benefit from it. Many of these statements though this book have questions for you to answer, there is work to be done. Messages alone cannot resolve all your challenges. Being honest with yourself and feeling the emotions that arise when you explore these ideas will open your best course for personal tranquility. Each chapter will start with a story that is a combination of experiences people have had related to the chapter topic. The way that you access this book is completely up to you but my idea behind its use is that you open the book when you feel you need some inspiration or guidance. Open to any page, that page or paragraph you see will be your message for the day or moment. The words will be aligned with what you are seeking. Of course, feel free to read through the book or look to a specific chapter for guidance. The messages you find will be energetically aligned to your needs. Many of the lessons may seem similar but worded in a unique way. This is important because messages will resonate in various ways at different times for the reader. There are very simple ways to improve your life, outlook, and experiences. It may take time to understand the messages and work with them but when you learn how to view your encounters from a place of growth, a whole new world will open to you.

Naked in the Driveway


A single-mother of two finds herself naked and covered in mud, in a stranger's driveway, several states away from home. Frustrated with life not being anything like she had hoped for by a certain age, Laura went "off the grid" on a spontaneous one-week journey to find peace. She recalls this story of survival and accidental exposure with hope, sarcasm, and the same transparency as swapping stories with close friends over a bottle of wine. From Salem, Massachusetts to the Appalachian Trail, this humorous, true tale is a relatable travel journal come to life, with photos and QR codes linking to actual events in the story. Naked and exhausted, Laura undergoes a transformation that gives her the will to live the very life she was trying to leave behind.
