The Story of the Messiah exposes a host of Jewish customs, attitudes, political sects, and institutions during the time of Christ and chronicles the events of His life in Hebrew fashion while harmonizing the accounts of the four Gospel writers. Surely the setting, characters, and plot of this two-thousand-year-old narrative are not unfamiliar, but while snippets of Jesus’ life have warmed the hearts of countless readers and listeners, a complete story of our beloved Savior is rarely gleaned. To remedy this vacuum, the author has embellished a chronicle of the life of Jesus by:
• shining a light on first-century Judaism
• providing historical and factual information pertaining to the Jews in a Greco-Roman world
• including numerous tidbits—both credible and incredible—that were pertinent to the various characters and episodes
• highlighting solutions to the apparent discrepancies proffered by the original authors
Beginning with God’s covenant with Abraham and a brief history of Israel, this rendition of Jesus’ story gathers truth from the prophets of the old standard as well as meaning from Paul and other writers of the New Testament. The final curtain closes on the Day of Pentecost, when God fulfilled His promise of the Holy Spirit.
Here is a story about redemptive grace, but of a girl who struggled to love God because she was made differently. Or so she thought she was. She couldn’t understand why God would allow her to have desires for the same sex when He blatantly rejects homosexuality in His Word.
Sacrificial Pursuit delivers a message of hope no matter what your current position or beliefs may be. It will take you out of your comfort zone with truth, and compel you to set aside the confusing questions about faith and same-sex attraction, and allow you to embrace the truth about who you are and where you truly belong.
Jesus isn’t interested in your sexuality. He is interested in your heart. Jesus never required you to be heterosexual in order to belong to Him. He made you a part of His story knowing you before He ever created you.
Get to the core of who Jesus is, and what He calls each of us to abandon, including our sexuality, so we can find eternal satisfaction in Him.
His request for us to follow Him is sacrificial and involves constant pursuit, but with obedience and trust, you will know the heart-gripping reality of God’s truth in your life.

The beginning of all beginnings is proclaimed in Genesis. God began by creating the physical world and people with spiritual qualities (soul and spirit).
Genesis becomes part of the discipline of Bible reading and study begun by many each new year. “Why not start at the beginning?” we ask.
With that desire in place, my husband and I picked The Daily Bible In Chronological Order 365 Daily Reading’s (TDB).
I spent extra time searching out the words of God, which contributed part of the title for my book, GOD SAID IT… The expanded title, by adding A THIRTY-DAY JOURNEY, became the impetus for an expanded devotional based on God’s words and topics selected from them.
God’s highest creation, man––including woman––spent their first day resting along with their creator. WOW! Wouldn’t you have liked to hear the conversation between them? It was Creator to created, Father to child.
CONVERSATIONS are imaginary words of God as He and the people of Genesis interact. The journey of God’s children developed into history—His story. It is also the story of those who would be called God’s chosen people--the Jews. Some conversations extolled characteristics of “heroes of the faith” mentioned in Hebrews eleven.
