Open Doors Open Hearts: Change Lives With Generosity, Love, and Compassion


Open Doors Open Hearts: Change Lives With Generosity, Love, and Compassion

by Tina Pocernich

BOOK DESCRIPTION
Have you ever been caught between a rock and a hard place, just needing a helping hand from someone to get you through? Have you needed a place to stay, even if only for a short period of time? Have you experienced financial difficulty and wished for a few months with no rent payments due, so you could get back on your feet again?

5115A-4Ui1LIn everyone’s life they experience times of need. At times throughout the life of author, Tina Pocernich, she has needed to rely on friends primarily within her church family to help her through events like her mother’s battle with cancer, and her escape from an unhealthy relationship. This led her to wonder “how do people pay it forward to those who are at their lowest, or even those who need just a little help?” Inspired by the instances she’d experienced, as well as the many examples she’d read throughout her Bible, she chose to reach out and touch the lives of those around her.

This is Tina’s story, and the story of those who have chosen to open their hearts and their homes. Join her in her journey from need to blessing others. Maybe you, too will be inspired to open your heart and home.

Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this book as it helped me open my heart and doors even more. Sometimes we may think that we’re doing enough but we can always do this little extra. Just recently we’ve opened our doors to travelers and the joy of sharing is very much mutual. I encourage anyone to read Tina’s book and find ways to share in life and be blessed by it.
AUTHOR BIO
I am Tina Pocernich, and I live in Wisconsin. I’ve been married nearly 25 years and am the mother and stepmother to five adult children: three boys and two girls, and eight grandchildren. I work full-time for a technical college, and recently, I’ve become an author. My passions are transparency, integrity, and truth.

In January 2017, I participated in a small group of women studying the book Dream It, Pin It, Live It by Terri Savelle Foy. For the first time in my life, I focused on looking at, and establishing personal goals and a vision board for a 12-18 month period. One of those goals was to write a book. When my goals were in front of me, I believe I was more aware of opportunities before me. In January, I also noticed an ad on my Facebook feed regarding Chandler Bolt’s Self-Publishing School. I downloaded and read two of his books, Published and Book Launch. Then I joined Chandler’s online Self-Publishing School Mastermind Community to gain even more knowledge and support throughout the book writing process. I have no idea how many times I may have seen that information in my feed previously, but I know I wouldn’t have noticed it if I hadn’t set a goal to write a book.

In July of 2017, I completed my book, Open Doors Open Hearts. God has allowed me to experience various things in life, and I believe it gives me purpose to share my possessions and experiences with others.

As a logical and direct person, I present my thoughts in a very practical way, without a lot of flowery language. My style is simple, but straight from the heart.

My hope is that you’ll enjoy my writing and find nuggets of truth you can implement in your own life.

Victorious: Living a life of complete freedom and victory in Christ


BOOK LAUNCH

Victorious: Living a life of complete freedom and victory in Christ

written by Barry Tallis

BOOK DESCRIPTION

God wants us to live victorious lives. But many of us are unaware we are in a battle or how to fight from a position of victory. Have you every thought about what it takes to have a joyous, successful, fulfilled life?

VICTORIOUSGod desires for us to live a life full of victory. He doesn’t want us to just “wade through life” until we go to heaven. He has given us His divine nature to move from a position of defeat, to a position of victory. VICTORIOUS has been designed to give you insight and direction on how to live this life. This book is for people who are tired of letting the enemy of this world triumph in their life, causing them to be disconnected and separated from God, even while sitting in the seats at church.

By implementing the principles and truths detailed in this book, many have come to realize the truth that the battle has already been won, and have started living it out on a daily basis.

You can live a life free from the enemy. From the constant attacks on your mind, body, and soul. You do not need to struggle another day with habitual sin. You can be free from it and the shame, guilt, and self-condemnation. As you read VICTORIOUS, you will experience a deeper connection to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.

Review

If you were to implement the truth and principles as detailed in Barry’s book it becomes easy to realise that the battle is already won and to start living the victory. We will become victorious once we start living according to God’s truth and are obedient to His Word.

In VICTORIOUS Barry describes the various names that the devil is known by. This makes it easier for us, his readers, to recognise and resist evil. In addition, Barry summarises what the devil stands for  and who he is by saying that ‘Satan is a “spiritual supernatural being who opposed God and continuous to oppose Him and seeks to disrupt the plans and purposes of God’s people and lead them astray and into rebellion against God.”

I like how Barry quotes Scripture verses about the evil one and dissects the meaning of these verses because this makes it easier to recognise what is going on in our daily lives.

With Barry’s guidance, we gain a better understanding of how to see evil for what it is and how to resist evil and fight it with the appropriate verses and tools. Well done Barry I enjoyed reading the first part of your book and am looking forward to reading the rest of it.

Immortality, Death and the Hereafter


BOOK LAUNCHES AND REVIEWS

Immortality, Death and the Hereafter: Exposing Mankind’s Most Enduring Deception About the Soul

by Shefflorn Ballantyne

BOOK DESCRIPTION

Have you ever wondered where you will go when you die?

Do you dream of the possibility of immortality?

DEATH IMMORTALITYHave you ever wondered about stories of visits from departed loved ones? About life after death, demons and angels?

Do you wonder what the bible says about mediums and those who claim to have special abilities to communicate with the dead?

Will sinners be burning for eternity? Or will they be annihilated?

This timely and easy-to-read book is designed to shed light on the mysteries of immortality, death and the destination of our departed loved ones. The biblically sound research into these subjects will stun you with a simple yet profound interpretation of claims of sightings of departed friends and families.

You may be struggling with the death of a parent, child or best friend and trying to make sense of their death. Or you may be familiar with the arguments of immortality and the soul and wish to finally see a truly biblical perspective on this subject. It may be that you are questioning your own philosophical position on the nature of the soul, immortality, torment and the nature of the resurrection found in the bible.

Whether you are a friend in grief or a bible scholar in need of answers on seemingly difficult questions on this subject, Immortality, Death and the Hereafter provides a well-reasoned and biblical path to a clear understanding of these issues.

Immortality, Death and the Hereafter helps you by:
• Outlining the real origin of the doctrine of the Immortality of the Soul
• Providing answer on what dying entails, the state of the dead and the resurrection
• Demystifying the myths of the soul, spirit and the appearances of departed loved ones
• Addressing bible statements of Jesus Christ and Paul on heaven, hell and torment
• Uncovering the mind of Satan versus the nature of God’s Love
• Presenting the biblical perspective on how the controversy between Jesus and Satan will climax
• Urging you to take action in occupying the only safe theological position in light of the coming Mark of the Beast.

This biblically correct book gives you an understanding of a truth that has been lost for thousands of years. It may challenge everything you believe about the dead and the ideas held by your own religion.

REVIEW

What I love about this book is that the author backs all his assertions up with Scripture. This is a thorough, in-depth study on immortality, death and the hereafter based on Scripture.

I agree with much but not necessarily all Shefflorn offers, yet really enjoy it when people write with passion and back up their convictions. The author looked at all angles and covered them well.

Highly recommend this book to anyone who is curious about what God’s Word really says about the after-life.

AUTHOR BIO

Shefflorn Ballantyne was born in Sandy Bay, a small village in the beautiful paradise islands of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

He has been lecturing at the SVG Community College for over 8 years in the discipline of business accounting. He enjoys teaching the scriptures, spending time with family and playing his violin.

Shefflorn loves writing. At age 13 he thought of becoming a writer of mysteries, but today is dedicated to writing Christian books.

He is a Christian minister in the Thusia Seventh Day Adventist Church and wrote his first book Immortality, Death and the Hereafter in March 2016.

Glimpses of Light


NEW BOOKS REVIEWS

BLOG TOUR OF GLIMPSES OF LIGHT

This week I’m participating in a blog tour celebrating the publication of the Anthology ‘Glimpses of Light.’

The Anthology is traveling from blog to blog and just arrived from Lynne Stringer’s blog. Before this Charis Joy Jackson shared her thoughts on her experience as part of the anthology. You can read her post here. On the 24th of January the tour will continue and ‘Glimpses of Light’ will be featured on  Adele Jones’ blog.

The anthology Glimpses of Light is the brainchild of and compiled by Jeanette O’Hagan (Goodreads Author) (Author, Editor) and Nola Passmore (Author, Editor).

Book Description

Be challenged, captivated and moved by these imaginative reflections on faith, help in time of need, joy in the midst of tragedy, and surprising encounters with God.

During 2015, the International Year of Light, twenty-one authors from Australia and the United States have come together to explore the theme of ‘glimpses of light’—finding light in dark places—through short stories, poems, flash fiction and creative non-fiction.

Glimpses of Light includes contributions from respected and award-winning authors and poets Jo-Anne Berthelsen, Paula Vince, Lynne Stringer, Adele Jones, Jo Wanmer, Jeanette Grant-Thomson and Ellen Carr, as well as exciting new talent.

Excerpt 

Where are you from?
And where are you going?

The basket of chips sizzles as it descends into the hot oil. The shop owner looks sideways at Amelia. ‘Where are you from?’
Amelia tenses, thoughts flashing through her mind. She doesn’t want to be associated with where she’s lived for the last eight years and anyway, she sure as hell isn’t going back there. As far as she’s concerned that means she isn’t from there. She leans against the counter, her clenched hands resting in her khaki trouser pockets. She realises that she doesn’t know anymore where she’s from or where she belongs, but this isn’t the right answer.

Through the shop window she watches her two teenage daughters mucking around in the car. The lyrics of Limp Bizkit transmitted by the car radio fill the air in and around the shop whilst the car trailer with all their stuff is shaken by the children’s antics.
The shop owner follows her glance, continuing his inquisition, ‘Oh, you’re on holidays, are you?’
No, she isn’t. She smiles at him.

Finally he’s covering the chips with salt and wrapping them in layers of paper.
He now demands, ‘Where’re you going?’

She pulls her faded jacket tightly around her whilst wrinkling her freckled nose. She looks up at the ceiling. If only she knew where she was going. The one thing she knows for sure right now is that sh doesn’t know how to answer any of his questions. She has absolutely no idea where she’s going and certainly doesn’t need to be reminded of this.

This above excerpt is part of my contribution to the anthology.

My review

Glimpses of Light contains stories and poems of imagination and hope. I was stoked that my submission for this anthology was accepted and even more jazzed when I received my copy. I feel proud and humbled that my name appears next to well-established authors and grateful that I was allowed to contribute.

I enjoyed reading all the stories and poetry in the anthology but one in particular touched my heart. It is called Window Seat and was written by Ellen Carr. I found her words warm and comforting despite the hopelessness conveyed.

What struck me most about Ellen’s poetry was not what was said, but the power and holiness of the unspoken in her writing.

Jeanette O’Hagan enjoys writing fiction, poetry, blogging and editing. She is writing her Akrad’s Legacy Series—a Young Adult secondary world fantasy fiction with adventure, courtly intrigue and romantic elements. Her short stories and poems are published in Tied in Pink romance anthology, Another Time Another Place, Poetica Christi’s Inner Child, FAWQ’s Brio anthology, Let the Sea Roar, Glimpses of Light and Like a Girl Plan anthology.

Jeanette has practised medicine, studied communication, history, theology and, more recently, a Master’s in writing. She has lived in Australia and Africa. She loves reading, painting, travel, catching up for coffee with friends, pondering the meaning of life and communicating God’s great love. She lives in Brisbane with her husband and children.

Glimpses of Light is a wonderful gift idea and available as a kindle or a paperback. You can find ‘Glimpses of Light’ on Amazon by clicking this link.

The Formula for Christian Self Esteem


The Formula for Christian Self Esteem

This guide was written by James Thomson.

BOOK DESCRIPTION

Many Christians struggle with the concept of self esteem. We wonder if it is consistent with our faith; is it prideful or is it a missing ingredient in being good stewards of ourselves? After years of wrestling with his sense of self-worth, the author allows a caring mentor to show him how to find a final answer to the question, “What is my true value?”

What Jim learns, The Formula, is at the heart of this very personal story of loss and recovery. Read along and learn for yourself the power and freedom that comes from knowing, once and for all time, your true worth.
In this book you will learn:
— The #1 infallible Key to a new self worth
— The best method to apply this essential truth to your life today
— The way to use the Key to erase the negatives in your life
— The process of using the Key to help you and your loved ones be happier, more confident, and more successful.
The Formula for Christian Self Esteem is a lesson, a journey, and an intimate sharing of a believer’s desire to know his Savior’s love and acceptance.

This book begins and ends with a prayer for your peace and happiness. Come follow along, learning how much God loves and value you.

MY REVIEW

Jim says that belonging as social creatures, we need to feel that we are a part of a group or groups. This is first addressed in our family. Later, we branch out into groups formed from peers and/or interests. He then addresses how all of those factors are important in our development.

I really like how Jim approaches the concept of self esteem. He gets to the bottom of it by breaking self esteem issues down in small parts and then he addresses each and every part thoroughly.

I started to read this book more or less on behalf of someone else to see how I could help this person along. What struck me when I was reading this book is that, as I was reading, I realised that I could use some help myself in the area of self esteem. It is obvious that Jim is an experienced counselor who has a good grasp on how to successfully resolve issues of low self esteem.

What grabbed me is his summation of what love is. ‘Love is more than an emotional reaction to another person. It is the summation of all the ways in which we act and react to one another.’ Amen to that. Really useful guide for anyone who struggles with self image issues.
