Storm clouds looming above?
Feeling overwhelmed by the crisis you are experiencing?
Where can we turn for help when dark storm clouds are hovering above, threatening to turn our world upside down? Do we retreat and hide from the world? Or is there another option?
Stormy Weather suggests that we retreat to the word of God where we are assured that God is our refuge and a present help in times of troubles. Stormy Weather is a guide to help you weather the storms of life. Whether it is a storm threatening your finances, your marriage, your job, health, or your relationships; no matter what kind of storm you are facing, Stormy Weather will help you to embrace the crisis and rise above the threatening waves that are trying to overtake you. Whether you are in a storm or fresh out of one, you will be reminded that God promises to be with us through it all.
“Stormy Weather has become a part of my morning worship. Although it sounds strange to imply that the storms of life are welcomed—as Rudd compellingly reveals—the truth is that they’re necessary and guaranteed, so I am learning to embrace by faith. I love the combination of personal testimony, Scripture, songs, and powerful declarative statements captured in this guidebook. This is an inspiring testimony of the power of revealing vulnerability and an excellent tool for ushering in the spirit of the Lord.”
—Danielle Price, Teach Director, Antioch Baptist Church
The Book of Genesis is a book of beginnings. It contains God’s promise of a safe end for us all; the promise that we can base our lives upon and it contains the knowledge of good versus evil.
The goal of this book is to bring us a better understanding of God’s Word; to help us realize the peace and the love that comes with giving God first place in our hearts through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
When God created this world, He knew what would happen. He knew that man would sin. But God wanted to give us freedom of choice. He wants a family that loves Him and wants to be with Him. That’s why He put a plan in place to help us overcome the penalty of sin.
God’s Word, and the study of books like this, help us to grow stronger in the knowledge of Him. The more that we understand, the more we will tend to make Jesus Lord over.
As you read this, you will come to understand how to walk in faith instead of fear. You will also come to know God through Jesus in a greater and more understanding way.
Just a Closer Walk is a thirty-one day, daily devotional book inspired by the realization that it is God who desires a closer walk with us. It is God who wants to spend more time with us than we realize. As His children, we do not have to work our spiritual fingers to the bone to earn His love. Through Jesus, our Savior, we have God’s total love, grace, and mercy.
The devotionals are written from the heart and written for the regular person facing life’s struggles. Regular, often broken people are who God uses to illustrate love, mercy, and forgiveness. These devotionals are simple, easy to understand, and use real life experiences to convey a message of love and hope.
God is chasing His children and wants to be a part of their daily lives. Let the adventure begin, for as His children, we are loved more than we could ever know.
As we study the Bible, we may believe we are far removed from the people described on those pages. After all, many played significant roles in helping Jesus spread the gospel. Most of us find it difficult—if not impossible—to picture ourselves in that disciple-type role because we are sinful and don’t always make the wisest decisions.
In Characters of the Bible: Finding My Stories in Their Stories, author David Waddell shares his discovery of his similarity to characters in the Bible. He found a relationship with the woman in John 8:1–11. He saw himself in a crowd of Pharisees urging punishment of a woman who did something they had done or wanted to do. Waddell was the woman looking for love in all the wrong places. He was the woman at the mercy of Jesus who was forgiven of all her sins without defending herself. Waddell realized the connection he had with biblical characters because like him, and like us, they were sinful. And if we’re truthful with ourselves, we can be mean, deceitful, conniving, and abusing, just like many people described in the Bible. Yet God used them for His purposes, and He will use us if we let Him.
In Characters in the Bible: Finding My Stories in Their Stories, we can find comfort in knowing we are just as flawed, goofy, wrong, and misdirected as these biblical characters. It is through the lives of these people that we can see so much of ourselves.
Conditions of the Heart will help you understand that most promises that we have made are what prevent us from being free and experiencing our God-ordained purpose in this life. This book will help you break free from promises that have you tied to your past and help you walk into your God-ordained destiny.

This is a testimony that will draw the reader into an incredible story of the creator rescuing a broken, shattered woman and her innocent baby by sending angels to her aid.
The woman spent endless days, weeks, and perhaps even months begging and praying to him to help her. While she believed in him, she didn’t believe that he would help. There came a pivotal point in the story where hope seemed to die and she felt an acknowledgment from deep within that he didn’t even exist at all. Truly at the end of her rope—an angel appeared.
It will be hard to set the story aside because a sense of the creator’s love will entice you to see what he will do. She will be challenged to depend totally on the gentle whisper from within her
You will journey with her—from a time in the past when a part of who she was seemed to die, to where the creator challenges her to let go and let him guide her into a new life. While the initial healings would total a five year period that was hard, tear-filled, and challenging, the majority of those things that had tormented her mind would be exposed and healed. Even more healings would come in her journey down the road to wholeness.
His provision on her behalf is truly awe-inspiring and will offer hope and encouragement to all. If he would rescue, forgive, and love her, how much more will he work in your life and the lives of others that reach out to him in time of need?
The creator’s love for each is unconditional! Truly seek him, and you will find his love actively working on your behalf as well.
To him be all the glory.
Simply put, The So-Called Rapture is a study of the event Paul tells in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 of “meeting the Lord in the air.” There is a traditional explanation of this event called “the Rapture,” which has believers, sometime in the future, physically going up and being changed as they go. This explanation is thrilling to the soul of evangelicals, who also see a future tribulation, and this “rapture into the air” is the escape mechanism. The problem with this traditional explanation is that it is not biblically correct. The So-Called Rapture reveals methodically, Scripture by Scripture, what “meeting the Lord in the air” was and why it was necessary. Moreover, The So-Called Rapture brings to light the reason for “heavenly places in Christ,” how water baptism was brought about, being crucified with Christ Jesus, and why these spiritual acts were necessary. The revelations taught here are not what common, so-called sound doctrine is today.
I hope that somewhere within these pages you will be inspired, that the words inside will comfort you and give you hope. My prayer is that each and every person who reads this book will be drawn to seek out God for themselves.
