From Book 1: When the end began, no one even noticed. It sort of snuck up on us, like the thief in the night we’d read about. ​

My name is Nikki. Just a country gal with no real mad skills. But after the global economic collapse, my husband Reg and I found ourselves leading a ragtag group of survivors, those who managed to escape the cities…and the Neos. The Neo Geo Task Force is the new government. The new world order. They were supposed to be the law of the land, the peacekeepers. They were anything but.

Not long after the banks around the world closed their doors, the price of everything from food to electricity shot up so high that most couldn’t afford to even eat or keep their homes warm. Vehicles were abandoned for lack of fuel to run them. People took to stealing to eat, robbing to survive, killing to exist. No one was safe and nothing was sacred when it came to survival.

Some of us had a clue about what was to come. We were Christians, followers of The Way. Scripture had warned us of the end times and the signs were definitely there in front of us…mass killings, governmental collapse, famine, the world in chaos. We knew what was coming; things were only going to get worse. A lot worse.

The problem was we really weren’t prepared to fight the evil that was coming our way.

​If you like apocalyptic end times survival fiction, you’ll love The End Series! All books are Christian based.

Book #4 will be released on August 10, 2018.

If you have Kindle Unlimited, these books are free to read. 😉

Reflections of God's Grace {Book Review}

-Reflections of God’s Grace- is a collection of devotional messages that have simple, yet profound illustrations for Godly living. They are reminders for many of us of what we have learned through sermons, songs and Scripture. Each devotion has a group of scriptures to support the message because God’s Word is most important. Psalm 119:11 says, -Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.- These devotions will challenge you to examine your heart and your walk with the Lord, and help you become a brighter -Reflection of God’s Grace-.

I enjoyed reading this book. It is a wonderful collection of devotions! It makes for great reading before bedtime, which is usually when I read it.. a few chapters at a time. They are not marked by day/or dated, so you can read one or two, or skip ahead as you wish. Beautiful stories, heartfelt, and good reading. 🙂

I received the kindle version of this book from http://www.booklookbloggers.com for my honest review.

Becoming an Author in the Internet Age

If you’ve caught the writing bug, it sticks with you for life. Many people dream of becoming an author as their fictional dreams seem to build up in their minds. When you go online, however, it seems like everyone has that writing dream. Blogs, articles and posts take up much of the Internet as it’s known now. However, there are some solid pathways to become an author in this modern era.

Old-Fashioned Book Publishers

Established authors, such as Daniel Handler, became writers through working with a publisher. These book manufacturers essentially gauge an author’s appeal so that a certain amount of novels can be released to national or worldwide success. Simply submit a story to the publishing house, and qualified authors will be contacted. This pathway is difficult to achieve, but you can be rewarded with a publisher that backs up more than one of your novels. All of the legal areas are covered for you as well, which protects you from any lawsuits over plagiarism and other issues.

Going the Way of the eBook

If working with an old-fashioned publisher seems archaic to you, try personalized publishing. Referred to as eBooks, authors place their stories online for readers to buy at a reduced price. Some authors create a free-reading period for their book so that it can generate buzz. Because the Internet offers an audience of millions of people, your eBook can turn into a lucrative business. You simply need a good plot line and engaging writing. Be sure to use a website that protects your book from plagiarism so that your words remain your own.

Print it Out

If you decide to produce an eBook, consider printing it out yourself. Create several duplicates that you can sell as hard copies. Sell them online, or attend a craft fair that allows authors to sit in with their work. Becoming a familiar name in the fiction-writing world means taking the time to meet with people in the flesh. When people meet you and read the text, they might go online and seek out other works by you. Being proactive about your work will only bring in new readers.

Build a Following

The beauty of the Internet is the connections that you can make. Create a social-media presence surrounding your authorship. Be active on social media so that followers will interact with you. As the communications flourish, you’ll also gain new followers out of curiosity and interest. This following can turn into novel fans that loyally read your stories. The Internet is a powerful place to build your reputation.

Be a Reader

You can’t be a successful writer unless you study the art. Aside from taking writing or English classes, be an active reader. Collect several novels by your couch, and read them on a regular basis. Looking at the sentence structures and vocabulary can greatly increase your value as a writer. In many cases, questions over punctuation might be answered when you read too. Be inspired by other authors so that you can create a unique piece of writing afterward.

Take a cue from Handler and simply write what you love. When you’re passionate about a subject, it reflects in your writing. Become an author through any modern pathway. The world needs creative thought to continue through the millennium.

God's Beloved Daughters {E-book}

God’s Beloved Daughters

GodsBelovedDaughters

This is the e-book version. If you know me, you know I love my actual physical books, but I had the opportunity to download this one at no charge in exchange for a review.

This is what the book is about:

“Both a daily devotional and an in-depth Bible study, God’s Beloved Daughters is a tool “to strengthen and establish and to exhort and comfort and encourage you in your faith” (I Thessalonians 3:2).
Throughout her years serving in the ministry of Christian education, and as friend, mother, and mentor, Merrilynn Grodecki has championed her passion for seeing God’s daughters step into that grace-enhanced, mountain-moving, peace-filled life that is theirs in Him.
Now, after decades of studying God’s ways of doing and being right concerning all of life’s issues, she has written this devotional to help each beautiful daughter of God walk in the fullness of life in Christ and discover the eternal truth of God’s promises.

Wife, mother, student, teacher, lawyer, doctor, businesswoman, pastor—despite all of these titles, there is one role that takes priority over all others—daughter! Our heavenly identity not only defines and characterizes every other relationship we take part in, it prioritizes our daily motivation. God’s daughters; His ambassadors to the neighborhood, the workplace and the world. Do you see yourself that way? Do you open your door in the morning to step out into the day with that kind of vision? Do your heavenly credentials, your Kingdom citizenship, define for you your determined purpose?

Each day offers an opportunity to practice our ambassadorship and extend God’s love. We awake each morning to love God, to serve Him and continue to be loved and known by Him… Walk out in that carefree graciousness that will compel the world to take a closer look at what makes you different. “I don’t know what she’s got,” they will say, “but I want it.”

I would say it is your basic devotional. I myself prefer something that is more visually appealing. I just didn’t feel like I would continue this book for the 365 days. I love devotionals, but normally I only read devotionals that are a physical book that I can touch and feel. Something with a little more to offer like illustrations and in color.

If you have this ebook, what did you think? I would love to know! 😉

When parents have defined plans, they move forward with more confidence, see changes more quickly, and experience hope as they grow in their relationship with their child.

This book has been amazing. There is a ton of information in it to help parents that may be having a difficult time with their child. I love that this is a Christ-centered book. It really helps you get right to the root of why your child may be acting the way they are, and steps on how to solve those problems with a plan suited for your family.

About the author:

Biography
Scott Turansky, D.Min., and his wife, Carrie, have five children. Dr. Turansky directed a preschool for eight years and is presently a counselor and seminar speaker and lives in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. Scott is the cofounder of the National Center for Biblical Parenting and the pastor of Calvary Chapel Living Hope.

Scott is committed to helping parents understand a heart-based approach to parenting. Although many parents use behavior modification to try to change their kids, Scott believes that approach is incomplete because it doesn’t consider the fact that God created every person with a heart. That realization opens many new avenues to help parents work with their kids.

Motivate Your Child {Book Review}

_240_360_Book.1476.cover

Motivate Your Child

About the book {taken from Amazon.com}

We need a parenting revolution!

Most parenting approaches end up encouraging children to ask the wrong questions about life: What’s in it for me? Are you going to pay me for that? What’s the minimum I need to do to get by?

But God’s Word gives us a better way to parent, one that builds strong internal motivation in children. When parents change the way they parent, kids change the way they live. This practical book explores a theology of internal motivation and then gives parents real-life solutions to equip their kids for life.

You’ll learn . . .

• how to parent in ways that build internal motivation so that kids don’t have to rely on you to get things done.

• the four promptings of the conscience and how to coordinate your parenting to take advantage of them.

• ways to energize your spiritual training with fun and creativity.

• how to help children respond to mistakes instead of blaming, defending, or justifying.

The greatest gift you can give your child is strong moral and spiritual development―this book shows you how. Every chapter includes practical examples of families applying the Bible to their current issues.
Join the revolution!

I had the opportunity to read this book. It was sent to me at no charge for my honest feedback. It is the Christian Parent’s guide to raising kids who do what they need to do without being told.

Overall, I don’t care much for parenting books, but when they are Christ-centered as this one is, I do find them enjoyable to read and useful. This book is wonderful. I was excited to be able to review it because I knew that I could take a lot from it. I could really use it on my bookshelf!

There are 2 parts: Part 1 is Moral Development in Children and Part 2 is Spiritual Development in Children. In these parts, there is so much information packed in. It tells you how to teach your children integrity, about being held accountable, compassion and so much more! It is one of those books that you can go back to and refer to and use again and again. A perfect addition to any bookshelf. I highly recommend it. 🙂

About the Authors:

Scott Turansky has been a pastor and missionary for more than 33 years and is an author of several books. In addition to pastoring full time, Scott also conducts parenting seminars on Saturdays around the United States (http://www.effectiveparenting.org/). He is the cofounder of the National Center for Biblical Parenting (www.biblicalparenting.org) and has co-authored four books.

Joanne Miller is a pediatric nurse with 26 years of experience and the cofounder of the National Center for Biblical Parenting. She is the coauthor of seven parenting books.

This book is available to purchase on Amazon.com.

I’ll be talking about the Motivate Your Child-ACTION PLAN soon on my blog! Use this coupon, beginning May 18th to save $5 on your purchase.
