Speaking to the “Nots” is a walk through God’s Word, reading Scriptures that are using and revealing a gem of God’s secrets. Each Scripture has its own anointing and empowering. The reader will be bathed by God’s Word as God speaks to them. One soon realizes the Bible is not a difficult book but a love message from a loving Father who wants His children to live a blessed and best life. The treasure hunt takes you through many twists and turns, but each reveals a miracle as you travel with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. And then hidden in a Scripture God spells out to His children a secret of how He created heaven and Earth and all that is within it.
"Galen describes in detail the experiences that are rarely talked about in the life of a seasoned Pastor... This book is a great read for Pastors, teams and church members. When I opened the manuscript on this book I was immediately drawn in. I felt like I had front seats in the life of a great pastor's incredible journey..." —Kevin Gerald, senior pastor, Champions Centre
"My father, who is a veteran of two foreign wars, told me he did not want to be led into battle by any man that had never been shot at... From legalism, to religiosity to genuine miracle... This is a guy I'm willing to listen to." —Dr. Mark Rutland, President of Global Servants
"...As I read this book, I was motivated, stirred and challenged. Get your copy, read with intent, and be prepared to be inspired!" —Dr. Dave Martin, author of The 12 Traits of the Greats

Miracle from Tobacco Road is a true story of the life and times of Jesse Davis. He was born in North Carolina and lived his life in the south. His is a story of a man who overcame many difficulties and hardships in his life through the miracles and grace of God, whether or not he knew it at the time. It is a story of salvation and redemption. It is an interesting book with many stories that will keep you wanting to find out what happens next.
This book is written like Jesse talks, in a poor, rural, southern conversational style, sometimes spoken in the present as if each moment in his life was now. Jesse talks very openly about his life, relationships, alcohol and drug use, and the difficulties and tragedies that he overcame. It is about the miracles that spared his life on several occasions, to the point that Jesse knew without a doubt that Jesus Christ was following him and protecting him, never abandoned him, and kept leading him to God.
This new Thought System emphasizes application rather than theology. It specifically states that a universal religion is impossible, but a Universal Experience is not only possible, but also necessary. This Universal Experience is Love. Universal means that all of the billions of people who have passed through this world since time began and all of the people who are here now (seven billion) would know God. God is Love.
To know God’s Love within is to know God. Where learning ends, there is Love. Love is not learned. There was never a time in which you knew it not. Once this new perception of God is accepted, then everything changes. The quiet Voice of Love will help you to reinterpret everything you have been taught as fearful and that makes you feel guilty and will change them to... only what is loving is true.
There are no rules and regulations to obey. You need “do” nothing. The Power of Love will set you free. It is not through any of your efforts. Here is the ultimate release, which everyone will one day find in his own way, at his own time.
Think about this: If Love is the primary focus of your life, what are you going to do wrong? - “Fear God and keep His commandments” becomes “Know God and accept His Certainty.”
According to Wikepedia, it is estimated that there are approximately 4,200 religions in the world today. I say
But the Greatest of These is Love.
Though something inside me knew there was more to life than eating, sleeping, working, and playing, I made my share of wrong decisions. I had not yet learned that Satan was real, that he stalked the back roads disguised in brilliant colors, much like the Pied Piper, piping his luring tunes to gather a long line of sinners to follow him! I hadn't learned to suspect the evil intent behind so many movements which rose up during the sixties to seduce the innocent from the righteous path! And so, I was a sinner—I unknowingly broke the heart of my wonderful Creator, because at the time, my eyes were still blind. When a problem arose or a decision was to be made, I did not seek His guidance, nor did I wait for His perfect timing.
Most of this book is about after I found the Way. I think it is important to know that we must all go through our own developing process to arrive at that place where our patient Creator intended for us. We are to serve at His pleasure, to be in fellowship with Him, and in so doing we unexpectedly discover our own inexpressible joy!
For every trial you go through, God has grace upon grace in your life. His grace is new every day, and his mercy endures forever. When you go through these trials, you’ll see that we do sin and he has mercy on us through every one. We can’t see the other side of a situation, but he does; we can rest in knowing that he has a plan for our life and that His grace and mercy will be in our lives each and every day as we stay close to him, choosing to have faith and hope in the promises of his word.
Real Men Do Cry captures the wisdom of Nehemiah for the twenty- first century.
Learn how God intervened to restore a remnant of his people in Israel in the fifth century BC, a time when the nation’s existence had reached a desperation point. God’s ways have not changed. He still acts on behalf of those he is calling to follow him. As an absolute sovereign, he expects complete obedience to his will.
See how God overruled the dominant powers of that time to fulfill his purpose in the world. This practice has not changed. God is still King; however many circumstances and the boasts of the ungodly may seem to mask that fact.
Understand the true basis for prayer as God’s people in any age relate to their true King and persist in their obedience to him.
There are two categories of individuals who pray in the Body Christ: those who pray problem-based prayers and those who pray solution-based prayers. Which are you? Let the Word of God be like a hammer that smashes the rocks in pieces. Do you want to learn how to pray dynamic prayers that make God fight for you?
Begin by praying solution-based prayers that focus on the Word of God. When you learn the art of praying the Word of God, you can expect victory every time. Activate your faith and start praying God’s Word. God is faithful to His word and watches over it in order to perform it. When we ask anything according to God’s will, we will have the answers to our requests. God’s word is His will.
May Your Kingdom come, we pray Your will today, Heavenly Father. Amen
God’s Love is a book containing a few of the most important stories from the Bible. My hope for this book is that it will peak the interest of children as it is being read to them, thereby giving them the desire to ask about God our Father and Jesus Christ our Savior. The most valuable gift we can give our children is the understanding of God’s love.
Is death optional? No, but the fear of it is. Instead of denial, let Christ exchange your ultimate fear for his ultimate homeland security: heaven.
Why is it that something as inevitable as death is the last thing we talk about? We seem to be in the grip of an ultimate fear. The Bible calls it a “lifelong slavery.” The good news is that God is the great emancipator of this slavery to fear. He sets us free and gives us instead the assurance of heaven. I have called it “forward nostalgia.” We long to be where we have never been.
Once we allow God to remove this fear we can be ready to keep on living on earth, and to be equally ready to depart for an incredibly wonderful new life in heaven. It is a win-win, no matter what the future may bring. Death is not leaving home; it is going home.
