Building a new America with Christ’s Values provides solutions to our most critical problems:
• the need to create enough sustainable jobs, • the need to shift to solar, wind and, hydrogen power before oil is unaffordable or unavailable, and finally • the need to stop destructive climate change. The Department of Defense has instructed the military that they must be independent of oil by 2040.
There is hope for an abundant future, but only if we:
• Develop a national energy and transportation plan and proceed with rapid implementation to stop burning fossil fuels. • Shift resources from the Military Industrial Complex to a Nation Building at Home Complex. • Establish a new business model and banking model as provided by the Mondragon Cooperative Corporation, which is worker owned. • Follow Christ’s teaching: “As I have loved you, love one another.”
If asked to list the most important things in life, most people would not list their material possessions over their relationships. Although relationships are as varied as the people involved, the tools we utilize to build and strengthen them are always the same. This workbook will give you a chance to personally apply the valuable tools to enjoy marathon relationships as presented in the companion book, How to Build an Enduring Marriage:
Your marriage cannot work unless you do.
I want to invite you to take a journey with me while we study and apply ourselves to live out our priorities. It is a journey designed to leave excuses behind as we apply ourselves to an extreme relationship workout. We are going to lift the ideals we have settled for in our relationships to new standards, set aside pre-conceived ideas, commit to develop and apply new skills, and take a look at some of the priorities we have unintentionally allowed to slacken. As we dedicate ourselves to these tasks, results will follow.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be raptured, to serve in heaven during the millennial reign, and to be there for Satan’s final defeat? Well, I have.
Transfigured to Serve explores the fictional life of a Christian man, Samuel Gideon. It provides a glimpse of his life before, during, and after the rapture. It shares his experiences and service in heaven. You are carried along with him as he prepares for the Lord’s return and millennial reign. You cascade out of heaven with Christ, Sam, and the saints and angels of God as they return to earth for Christ’s 1,000-year reign. You witness Sam’s service during the millennial reign and the lives of those that were left behind during the rapture. You see how their decedents progress. You experience the final release of Satan from his prison in the bottomless pit and his swift corruption of humanity--and then the final battle for earth. You will visualize the destruction of earth and the glory of the new heaven and new earth after the miraculous victory over Satan and his forces. You will experience the grandeur of the New Jerusalem, which becomes the final capital of the new earth, created by God--the glorious dwelling place of God, his saints, and his angels.
This work of Christian fiction is based on prophesied events from scripture. I pray that you enjoy my book and glean a new perspective on the end times revealed in the Bible.
We must learn to look beyond the mirrors of our lives not only to view the outward appearance of what seems to be but with a deep meditation that allows God to speak to us in ways that exalt His glory in our three dimensional world.
Rarely are reflections planned; instead, they are usually triggered by stimuli such as smells, songs, words, or visuals. Time and again, we pause to ponder about a variety of issues and things that evoke emotions that may range from silliness to self-pity. More often than not, these are the things that shape and mold our lives.
Is America a nation under God or a nation getting over God? In the United States, the Christian cause is in full retreat: • Courts enshrine the counterfeit right of same-sex marriage • Prayer, long since made illegal in public school, is increasingly pushed from other public places and occasions • Policies of the social welfare state owe more to the principles of Robin Hood than of Jesus • Crosses, erected in memorials to fallen soldiers, are threatened with demolition • Immigrants are treated as pawns of politicians instead of the “strangers” Jesus spoke of
Everyone worries about being “on the wrong side of history”, but few seem concerned about being on the wrong side of God. In the midst of it all, voting booths are declared a God-free zone.
But, what If God Won Our Elections? What if voters applied the teachings of the Bible to their daily lives and the choices they made as citizens? If we return to the Bible and trust it to guide our decisions, instead of “getting over God”, America can again be “the nation the Declaration of Independence and the blood of fallen heroes has made us: One nation under God.”
If God Won Our Elections is the resource that answers these questions for the Christian voter by opening up the greatest voter guide ever written: The Holy Bible.

Scholars and students alike have hailed the book of Romans as one of the greatest single literary works of all time. When you consider that it is also the Word of God, it makes the study of his remarkable book all the more valuable for help in day-to-day living.

The premise of this little volume is that life is meant for meaning, and that meaning is found only through the commitments we make to those self-transcending goals and values which are true to our nature and talents as distinctive human beings.
We live in a natural world of immense size and beauty. We marvel at its contents (from the microscopic to the cosmic), enjoy its many patterns (whether in snowflakes or in the rings of Saturn) and occasionally delve into its intricate processes.
The products of past natural events lie scattered about, awaiting discovery, analysis and appreciation. We are drawn to wonder what lies beyond our vision and our understanding.
Why is the nature of Nature so attractive? A musical score, a piece of literature or a magnificent painting all reflect something of the minds that fashioned them. Can the same be said of the Mind that fashioned all things, from atoms, babies and raindrops, to oceans, mountains and spiralling galaxies?
