Book description…

What you plant will grow; what you grow will show! Jaide’s grandparents believe that the better we think, the better we live. They are convinced that confident, creative and purposeful lives are the result of corresponding thoughts. In “My Mind is a Garden”, Pop-Pop and Granny refer to Jaide’s mind as a “garden,” and her thoughts as “seeds.” Consequently, they encourage young Jaide to plant Bible-based “thought-seeds” in her “mind-garden” promising their granddaughter: “What you plant will grow; what you grow will show.” With an air of sophistication, coupled with child-like trust, Jaide plants God’s words in her “mind-garden.” When God’s words are the “seeds” planted in their minds, our children will have the benefit of a purposeful life, plus the privilege of a personal relationship with their Creator.

Introducing Charles Sacchetti, author of Knowing He’s There: True Stories of God’s Subtle Yet Unmistakable Touch

“My Author Representative was a joy to work with. She was very responsive to all of my requests and communicated in a very timely fashion.”

Charlie Sacchetti was born in 1947 and raised in a tightly knit, working-class neighborhood in southwest Philadelphia. Here he learned right from wrong, a strong work ethic, and the importance of standing by your word, your family, and your friends. He earned a baseball scholarship to Temple University, graduating in 1969. After a brief stint in professional baseball, Charlie returned to the university and was employed there for thirteen years. In 1983, he began his current career in industrial chemical sales. In May of 2016, he submitted the commentary piece entitled Getting in the Game, which was published in The Philadelphia Inquirer on Mother’s day. One month later, his piece, Getting the Message, was submitted and published on Father’s day in the Courier-Post. The idea of publishing his first book of essays, It’s All Good: Times and Events I’d Never Want to Change, was born from hearing many requests to do so, from friends and strangers alike. That book was published in July of 2017.

Do you know that you’ve been touched? In 2017, soon after the author published his first book, It’s All Good: Times and Events I’d Never Want To Change, he had a feeling that there was more to be done. While attending mass one Sunday, he realized that God was doing the nudging. Clearly, it was time to write Knowing He’s There: True Stories of God’s Subtle Yet Unmistakable Touch, a book highlighting how our loving God demonstrates His presence in our lives. The author writes of experiences through which one can see God’s influence, as these twenty-five essays are presented in ways that are solemn, humorous, and heartwarming. Throughout this work, his strong relationships with family, friends, and the influences of his ethnic heritage and religious, middle-class upbringing are obvious. Before the writing began, it became apparent that God had touched the author’s life in many ways, often quite subtly. He reasoned that God wanted him to discover the source of these blessings for himself by raising his awareness. This book is written with the hope that readers will at least consider God’s possible influence on their lives, both in the past and in the present … not to mention the future.

Introducing Robert H. Dunkle, author of Ninety and Nine Plus One: Messages from God’s Word – Plain and Simple

She encouraged me to keep moving forward when I was dragging my feet on getting my book published. She was always helpful and returned my emails promptly. The staff in other departments were just as helpful and professional in their service.”

Robert Dunkle earned his degree in religion and was licensed to preach in 2005. He preached and taught at a Bible college in India, and continues to write messages to be broadcast over an Indian satellite TV station from Richmond, Virginia, where he lives with his wife.

When Robert Dunkle received an opportunity to preach God’s Word to the people of India via short-wave radio, he jumped at the chance. The messages he delivered were translated into two of India’s main languages and recorded by an Indian pastor to be aired in 15-minute radio spots for each language once a week. Ninety and Nine Plus One is a compilation of these uplifting spiritual messages broadcast on Indian radio in order to spread God’s word throughout the world! All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. (II Timothy 3:16 KJV)

Introducing Robert Oman, author of The Closed Door

“The personnel with Outskirts Press were very professional, cordial, and timely in their responses. It was a pleasure working with them.”

Robert Oman wrote The Closed Door (Which Side Will You Be On) out of a growing concern about the decline in the moral fabric of this country and the disappearance of the “fear of the Lord” from the Christian landscape. We are in the “latter days” and the Bible specifically states that Christians are not to be deceived by societal influences. Robert and his wife reside near Sunbury, Ohio. They have two grown sons, four grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

Book description…

Understanding end-time prophetic scriptures can be frustrating since not all the related information is presented in one place in the Bible nor is it presented in an easily understood chronological order. The Closed Door (Which Side Will You Be On) is an attempt to take the reader on a step-by-step journey through the myriad of end-time prophetic scriptures that are presented in a definitive chronological order. This journey will show the inter-relationship of such major future events as the disappearance of nearly two billion people, the formation of three future geopolitical alliances, the ancient religion that will be integral with Mystery Babylon, and the three invasions of Israel. This journey will also delve into the numerous realms of God’s creation (past, present and future) and include a description of three eternal people groups and three eternal realms. The specific eternal people group that you will be in will determine the specific realm where you will spend eternity. The life choices that you make this side of the grave will have eternal consequences. Where will you spend eternity? Before life’s door closes, I pray that you will choose wisely – and soon!

Book description…

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.
