Follow her as she battles unseen enemies with refreshing candor while deftly drawing the reader into her struggles against the stark and dark realities of adversity. This work is the story of a soul coming to a profound understanding of Christ, the gospels and the cross—a place where all should journey. Read.

How do you measure your faith? Is it by your standards, the world’s standards, or by God’s standards? God has written His words to us in Scripture that we can know His thoughts and know His ways and thus live by His standards alone.
All too often, mankind makes God after their own image and concludes that He thinks and acts just as they do. But it is not a sign of wisdom to try to second-guess God!
What is the true meaning of faith? Learn how to improve your relationship with God. Wake up to a vibrant Christian life that reveals how close and real God truly is. Invite God to come into your life and to be a true blessing that carries you through the best and worst of times.
God’s love for us is as close as our consent to love Him in return. Allow Him to be an intrinsic part of who you are. Allow this miracle to come true in your life.
Does God speak to the common man?
Is His voice heard among the populace of the pews, and can a common man speak from the pews? Realizing that not everyone holds a doctorate or serves as a professional church leader, A Voice from the Pews attempts to share insights and devotionals from the life and experiences of just such a common man. Using word pictures, Scripture references, and life experiences, Mr. Sheldon hopes his book will encourage you through a variety of circumstances.
It was just a way to record what God was speaking to me one night. I originally wrote the first manuscript on June 22, 2003, from 10:00 that night until 1:30 the next morning. God said to me recently that it was time to publish the book. I pray that those who read it increase in faith for the miraculous, and that the book inspires people to know God in a more intimate way. God wants to be a part of your life in every way. He wants to lead you into experiencing His love in ways that you never dreamed. Relax and enjoy the journey through the pages of my book.
This book is written to help anyone interested in knowing and understanding what spiritual capital is and how to develop it. The book discusses how those interested in gaining a deeper insight into the spiritual dimension of life can objectively plumb the inner reaches of the core of inner being. It is argued that to strengthen relationships and enhance the quality of life, people must hone their spiritual capital. Since spiritual capital is sine qua non to the attainment of a satisfying lifestyle, improved quality of life, and a nonviolent community environment, it is imperative to create a fertile and propelling educational environment within which people can develop their own spiritual capital.
“Your daughter is going to be born with a genetic defect.” Did the doctor just say defect? What is he talking about? “She has Down syndrome, but you have a choice. You can terminate this pregnancy.” He watched me closely, waiting for my response. Those words, the ones the doctor said so casually, instantly changed the future I had planned for my unborn child. A poignant story about coming to terms with a life-changing decision. Not just a story about Down syndrome, it’s about acceptance, holding on to shattered faith, regaining hope, and receiving grace. A true story that offers you the gift of gratitude and rewards you with inspiration.

There is considerable information regarding the control that our subconscious has on our conscious mind. I quote several world-renowned speakers who deal extensively with this awareness. After living in Brazil for eight years, I take the reader into the jungle of Brazil, along with the asphalt jungle of the third-largest city in the world, Sao Paulo, and adventures on three continents. I also take the reader into my mind during a manic psychosis and my husband’s depressed psychosis. There is hope offered throughout the book with humorous stories. I welcome you to join me in the excavation of the mind and to realize the possibilities and potential in each of us.
