Book description…

How can God use me? You don’t know the things I’ve done; You don’t know where I’ve been, where I’m from. He’ll never use someone like me. He knows me! … Have you ever said this before? Ever believed this about yourself? Has your past kept you from fulfilling the purpose God has for your life? Strayed is one woman’s journey to release the things of her past in order to move into the plans that God has for her life. This trilogy will walk you through Carla’s journey with a jealous God: allowing life and circumstances to define who she was and who she should be, ignoring God’s good and perfect will for her life – believing that He could never use her for His glory. Come along for the journey, release the baggage that you have been carrying around for too long and recognize that indeed God knows the plans He has for you. Plans to give you a hope and a future! (Jeremiah 29:11). Here’s what people are saying about Strayed: “Carla shares her pain and experience openly and honestly in a way only the Holy Spirit can allow. Thank you for letting the world know there is a balm in Gilead and healing for the soul, mind, body, and spirit this side of heaven.” “Seeing what her life had been like and now seeing how God is using her helps me to see that in spite of the things I did in my past, He can and will use me too. I can’t wait for Part 2!”
“Refreshingly open and honest storytelling.” “Strayed is interactive and thought-provoking…it crosses the boundaries of age and can appeal to anyone at any stage in life. I thoroughly enjoyed the application of life lessons to my relationship with God. It allows for a lot of self-evaluation and honesty in my Christian walk. I have truly been blessed and challenged by this book.”

Introducing Jerad P. Bisson, author of Shining Christs Light

It is through his personal life experiences and his dedication to Jesus and the scriptures that this book was born. It is his greatest hope that many people who are searching for God can come to rely on him by using the principles that Jerad has created in this book. “It is with God and only with God that we can accomplish all things, therefore we must not exclude him from the smallest matters of our lives, to the greatest. Our relationship with Christ should be intimate and life giving. It is by falling in his arms and trusting in what he taught and what he promised. That we may truly learn how to live the life that God has designed for us to live.” “Glory To God in the Highest”

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.
