Why does any woman stay in an abusive marriage? It was the author’s belief as a Christian that marriage was a lifetime commitment—no matter what. She endured fourteen years of marriage to a man who abused her, cut her off from family and friends, and demanded strict obedience to his every command. During those years, she lived in a state of confusion, torn between doing what her conscience dictated and trying to be an obedient, godly wife.
Her husband used parts of scripture to “beat her into submission” while failing to acknowledge the truth of God’s Word. Through the fog of abuse, God’s Word pierced the confusion, and opened her eyes to the truth.
Jesus said, “You will know them by their fruits.”—Matthew 7:16 (NASB)
In Ephesians 5:22 (NIV), we read, “Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.”
But we must read it in context with Ephesians 5:21, “Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.”
And Ephesians 5:25, “Husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the church.”
Above all else, “We must obey God rather than men.”—Acts 5:29 (NASB)

Don’t read Weapon’s Training for Spiritual Warfare and Frontline Ministry if you want to maintain the status quo! It may turn your world upside down by challenging the way you have always seen things!
Spiritual Warfare is a very vague and nebulous term in many circles of Christendom. Many believers talk about it but don’t really know what it is or how to successfully engage in it. Some are even afraid of, or at the least, uncomfortable with the subject.
My purpose for Weapons Training for Spiritual Warfare and Frontline Ministry is to arm Christians with a working knowledge of how to engage our enemy in battle successfully, taking ground away from the demonic and bringing light into places previously occupied by darkness.
God wants more than anything to see His church (His bride) walk in purity and victory, so I give the believer in Christ a working knowledge of the various spiritual weapons made available to them. I will teach you how to effectively employ these weapons. I will train you for war, so that you might gain the victory in your walk with God; win the lost out of darkness, and effectively destroy the works of the devil!
In this way, you will begin to truly experience kingdom reality and dominion over the demonic. Moreover, you will start to be the change agent in your sphere of influence, as God uses you to advance His kingdom. This will bring a breakthrough in your life and in the lives of others, as you learn Weapons Training for Spiritual Warfare and Frontline Ministry.
This is a book I wrote with a passion and courage through faith. The intent was to write a few pages and have same handouts for those I met or were already acquainted with—especially for those you get to know better, as it is said, “By their fruits ye shall know them.”(Mat 7:20 KJV) The needs continued to grow and likewise the information to share. As you read this book you will see the varied subjects and so much more.

The words “it’s unbearable,” changed my life forever. One of the strongest men I have ever known, my dad, spoke them. Suddenly, everything in our life was changing. His struggle with stage-four lung cancer was so sad and difficult. Yet, at times, it was very loving and inspirational. Being aware you might not have much longer to live changes who you are as a person. Regrets are there, but you do not hold back on the good things in life. Little things such as taking your grandkids fishing come to your mind. Big things like saying “I love you,” to your adult children come out easier. Our family had good and bad, dark and light, in its history. Thank God the good and the light won out in my dad’s life.
“For all the negative that there appears to be in this world it, truly, touches my heart to see so many who do care. May God bless America and the world!”
Every day that we live is another day that we can make a difference! We can overcome evil with good, as there is nothing negative about our God! We must first ask ourselves this: Where does our treasure lie? Is it in the world?
Walk with me through my thoughts and select biblical scripture, as I look at the world, and ask you, “What does the world mean to you?”
You see, the possibility does exist in each and every one of us to make a difference. Having the ability to make a difference and not allowing yourself to try is like having a muscle and making a decision not to use it. This, in time, can cause atrophy. We as a nation and even in the world, have developed this problem. We all need to come together to make a difference. We need to decide that what is happening in this world does matter. We need to decide what it is that each one of us can do to make a difference!
So, I ask you, again...”What does the world mean to you?”
- Jennifer Alden
This book is a true account of a pre-death vision from heaven, non-ordinary reality of a visionary encounter. This book is meant to be uplifting, candid, and down to earth, along with my personal and spiritual journey. What I have witnessed was a miracle, a blessing that occurred on Corpus Christi.
The author was hunting in the foothills of a Montana mountain range. Somehow he became separated from his friends and sudden darkness extinguished all light of day. He called out and there was no answer. Being a stranger to those mountains, not knowing where he was, he began to panic. Then he remembered something his friends once told him: don’t panic, climb to the top of a hill, and look around. He did so and saw three lights in three different directions. This is good, he thought, one of them might be the cabin we are staying in. Seeing light gave him hope, even though the light seemed so small and far away. He chose a light to follow and began his journey. Up and down the hills, crossing deep snow banks, often losing sight of the light, he plodded on. What relief and joy and thanksgiving to God overwhelmed him when he arrived at a cabin – it was the right one. Each chapter in Out of Darkness Into The Light identifies some darkness that needs to be overcome. Each chapter offers the light of Jesus and God’s word as an antidote to darkness.
Followers of Jesus will gain new insights and a deeper understanding of their faith. Those seeking to follow Jesus will be able to make a clearer decision by acquiring a better understanding of what Jesus and the Christian faith is about. Small groups: included is a guide for Bible study and discussion; chapters can be selected according to interest. Pastors and lay teachers will find a good resource to expand one’s Christian world view and practical Bible teaching, illustrations, and quotes to pass on. Those with troubled hearts will experience hope and lifted spirits. “Out of Darkness Into the Light” touches on things like fears, stress, grief, suffering, and self-forgiveness. Non-readers need not read it all - a short skip around the chapters can be beneficial. Left your faith? “Out of Darkness Into the Light” recognizes past criticisms, hurts, unanswered questions and doubts and offers another look. Hate religion? So do I. Learn what a relational life with Jesus involves.
Living into the Mystery combines the wit and wisdom of life experience and spiritual adventures in a series of letters that answer questions about faith and doubt, creativity, commitment, and community. Letter-writing is a lost art. Collected here are the letters of a compassionate pastor to the people who ask her questions in the strangest of places—from airplanes to barnyards.
“Arising from a pastor’s heart, these letters give voice to the struggles of the spirit and offer insight as well as compassion. I found myself thinking of the times I wished I had written similar things to similar questioners. These letters provide fertile reflection for pilgrims in every stage of the spiritual journey.”
