Not Alone . . . We might think we have a clear picture of what lies ahead. But in truth, each of us steps daily into “unknown territory.” Jesus desires to walk this journey personally with you and with me, sharing every joy and every sorrow. I invite you to join me as together we travel this road with Him. “Linda’s writings are refreshingly authentic. Through the lens of her own journey of life, she comes alongside of her readers and accompanies them on those pilgrimages which are unique to each one of them. As you ponder the vignettes which she shares, you will find yourself laughing one moment and shedding a tear the next, only to be assured that you are not alone as you travel through this life together.” -David M. Keazirian, Educator and Ministry Consultant “Linda’s writings reveal a relationship between her and God that is warm and loving. Her stories remind us that growth can be wonderful but can also include growing pain. In her books, we are invited to journey alongside Linda. We learn that a relationship with God can truly be personal and that God is calling each of us into a unique relationship with Him . . . a relationship not always easy but defined by love and purpose.” -Russell Holloway, Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Book description…

Christ is the light which pierces the darkness. We often find ourselves in darkness. Battle lines have been drawn. The messages of the secular world stand in contrast to the Gospel. We question. We doubt. We feel lost and emptiness inside seems to be growing. Where is God? Jesus himself tells us that if we lose the light, how dark that darkness will become. God is not distant. Through his Son Jesus, he reveals his great love for us; how he desires to be close to us and to enter into a personal relationship with each of us. We just need to be open to his presence. For those who are lost, who find themselves in the dark and who are searching for something lasting, we extend a simple invitation: Come and see. Consider how life in Christ is the only true source of lasting happiness. Experience a God who is always near. Discover or re-discover a faith that is ever ancient, ever new. Christ is the true light that has come into the world and darkness cannot overcome it.

Reading this book will bring you to the point of recognizing what God has done in your life. God has miraculously worked in all our lives, and too often we do not recognize that it was His grace and mercy. Reality TV shows like, I Shouldn’t Be Alive; I Survived; Trauma: Life in the E.R.; and Untold Stories of the E.R. are exciting TV shows. Unfortunately, most of the time, luck, fate, or good fortune is credited for the miracle that happened in these people’s lives instead of God’s divine intervention. In this book, you will read the story of an ordinary man whose life was touched in an extraordinary way from the moment of conception by the sovereign hand of God.

Introducing Madelyne and Larry Spann, author of May Learns To Pray

“We were pleased with our Author Representative. As far as our overall experience, there is definitely a learning curve to figure a few things out, but I would use this company again for future projects.”

Devoting most of her professional career working in the library system, Madelyne Spann LOVES books. After recently retiring of 30+ years working for the Berkeley County Library System in South Carolina, the Mayor of Goose Creek gave a special proclamation to honor her years of service to the community. Post retirement, she decided it was time to pursue a lifelong dream of becoming a published author. Inspired by journal entries Madelyne recorded while observing her first grandchild Maylene, she developed a series of books about an inquisitive little girl named May. As a Pastor’s wife, Madelyne thought the first story in the series should be the simple act of teaching May a prayer of thanks. Madelyne is the mother of 3, and enlisted the help of her eldest son Larry as co-author. She is married to Pastor Samuel E. Spann, and the couple reside in South Carolina.

Book description…

Love Your Enemies. All of us have people in our lives that we feel are impossible to deal with. They just won’t be nice to us or respect us in anyway no matter how kind we are to them. whether it be a family member, a coworker, someone you go to school with or even someone whom you have just met. For some reason they just don’t care about you. Jesus calls us all, to love all people, especially our enemies. How then can we love those who are always putting us down? Jesus teaches us that there is no credit in only loving those who love you back (Luke 6:32 KJV). The merit is received when we love the ones who don’t love us at all. How then can we love someone that wants to hurt us? Christ has given us his teaching that we should all love our enemies, bless those who curse us, do good to those that hate us, and pray for those who despitefully use us, and persecute us. This seems somewhat impossible, but anything is possible with God. When we rely on all that Christ has taught us and fall back on his love for us, we can do anything, we can change the world. This book contains nine practical principles on how to love your enemies. It is by applying these principles in our daily life, that our lives will get better and we will learn how to deal with those people who hate us and those who just down right ruin our day. Each of these principles has been derived from Christ’s teachings of how we should love our enemies. These nine principles are a fundamental approach to a Christ centered life, that makes you Christ’s light in the world. By applying these nine principles in your daily life. You will find that most of the people who don’t care about you, will start to care about you more and those who continue to treat you badly wont bother you at all. It is through Christ That we are saved and through Christ’s teachings that we learn how to live a life that is worthy of Heaven. So, let’s use a practical approach to this issue and ask Jesus for his grace, to learn these new behaviors. So that we may shine Christ’s light in the darkest of places.
