Book description…

Most of us spend a great deal of time trying to figure out who we are and why we’re here. We try to find the right person to share our life with and to give it more meaning. Sometimes we question our own beliefs, faltering on our Christian walk. But the key to our quest for happiness is actually quite simple: By developing a deeper relationship with God, we find joy in serving Him, and we develop a new confidence in who we are. In Butterflies and Becoming REAL, butterflies are used to represent new life or resurrection, with their stages of growth compared to the Christian maturing process. When we are “born again,” we start to become who we’re designed to be. Using the scriptures and illustrations in the text, you can gain insight and knowledge for the maturing process. By developing a love relationship with the Lord and His Word, you can become real. This book is a study guide to help you find discipline and discover the process of becoming who God wants you to be-the REAL you-fulfilled and happy!

Book description…

All of us are survivors. Some are physical survivors, having survived death or serious injuries. Others are emotional survivors. A few of us have survived many things in life. Why do some survive, a few numerous times, while others do not? Perhaps it is because the survivor still has an important purpose for being left alive, with mind intact. Is it not a reasonable conclusion to believe that a survivor has a personal Guardian Angel who has the job of keeping him or her alive until that purpose is fulfilled? Does the survivor know the purpose for which he or she has been spared; or perhaps is fulfilling that purpose unawares? When someone has survived time after time; is there a message that he or she should be seeking the purpose for the survivals? This is a story of one person’s numerous survivals and his quest to discover the reason he has been spared and the purpose for which he has been left on the earth. There is also one disappointment in life that has not been survived and from which his Guardian Angel cannot save him. This is a book about survival, by a survivor, for survivors. It may also help others to survive crises encountered in life.

Product description…

Most people have at one time or another asked themselves, Why am I here? What is my purpose? It’s a difficult and profound question, and a common conclusion is that we were created for God’s glory. This may be true, but it is not logical. There must be a far more specific reason for our creation. In Sam Oputa’s latest book, he explores this question from many angles—spirituality, religion, psychology, philosophy, and other sciences—but mostly he draws from the Holy Books, which contain a wealth of scientific evidence. The result of years of research and soul-searching, Why Was Man Created? is a fascinating and sometimes controversial study of the age-old question of creation and evolution.
