A story of endurance against the odds. There is a dearth of literature by disabled, working-class authors. This is the account of an autistic author, though one gifted with literary ability. Lucien Bracquemont is eager to share his story, to help others understand the realities and issues facing those on the autistic spectrum, and to provide a voice for others on the spectrum. He has had much contact with the mentally and otherwise challenged members of the community. This work is emotionally charged in places and transparent, with a message of hope and understanding.

He credits his girlfriend, Katherine, of nineteen years as well as other significant factors for his surviving and thriving. Bracquemont is a survivor, not a victim.$8.31 Select options

Dr. Nicholas V. Steiner’s career as a practicing internist ends abruptly when he develops metastatic melanoma. A series of local recurrences—including one in the brain—are surgically removed until one day the cancer returns with a predicted survival of three months. Resigned to his fate and with nothing to lose, he turns to an expert in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Within weeks of starting Dr. George Wong’s medicinal herbs—ordered from a small shop in Chinatown—the cancer disappears. Steiner has written about this in a previous memoir: Unforeseen Consequences, a Physician’s Personal Triumph over Advanced Melanoma (Xlibris).

It’s so nice meeting you. I’m very happy to see that you're interested in reading my adventures. Why don’t I give you a sneak peek of my story?
Heading to an unknown land to preach the good news to a northern Indian tribe living just above the Arctic Circle may not sound like a good life but I didn’t care. As long as I am with my husband, I can do everything. And with Christ on our side, we left everything behind to live in the remote wilderness of Alaska.
Oh, what was life like while being there? Well, we have to face subzero temperatures, eat an unbalanced and sometimes unusual diet, and deal with wild animals, unpaved roads, and a number of threats to our safety. But we did everything for the glory of God.
So, I hope you will enjoy this book as much as I enjoy writing it. May our story bring you so much joy and strengthen your faith in Him.

Growing up in her native Germany, Ms. Bresko relates hair-raising tales of the war as she and her family struggled to stay neutral during the conflict and her father was sent off to fight the war on the Russian front. Often going without many necessities and suffering through the usual childhood illnesses, she nevertheless retained. Her optimistic outlook for the future through and dreamed of the day she would again be able to taste freedom.
After hostilities subsided, she chose nursing as a career and details her education experiences while living in several other European countries and working in a variety of location, eventually settling in America with her husband. Through her fascination and historical look into the past, readers learn that children are the same the world over-dreaming of the future, and acting on those dreams as soon as they are given the chance.
Now retired, Christel Decker Bresko enjoys travel, walking, swimming, reading, and writing in her spare time.
“Writing this book added great joy and spice to my Golden Years, not just remembering but to keep my past alive. Mother and Father, who both have passed on, left me with a great legacy. They wanted me to see the world, find happiness, and pursue life to the fullest. My sister and brother added gold, frankincense, and myrrh, which in my belief, are riches, sweet odor, and integrity. It was a great experience to finish this soon to be a book.”$12.99 Select options
I was born and raised in a small town in south Alabama where I’ve lived most of my life and am now residing. I am a member at Harvest Church in Dothan, Alabama.

I’m a self-taught artist, painting and selling art from 2005 until present. Since I’ve turned my life over to God I’ve went from painting margaritas to Jesus! He truly changed my heart and gave me a new one at the age of forty. As a family our journey has just began and I owe each step to my sweet Saviour Jesus Christ!
About the author:Psalm 32 The Joy of Forgiving

After a downward spiral of alcoholism, drug-use, memories of childhood abuse and never-ending suicidal thoughts since a young girl, I decided that there had to be something more to this life.

I heard His audible voice and I want to live and tell everyone that He is Real and Amazing!!$11.99 Select options

“My goal for writing about my life was not to say I had a worse life than anybody else, but to demonstrate that even throughout the turmoil you face there is always opportunity to make the right decisions for yourself. Life is about choices and if you choose failure that’s what you become, but if you choose success it can be challenging yet possible only if you are willing to put in the work. Those people who accept failure are usually the same ones who haven’t realized their potential yet. Giving up on life is the same as giving up on God and what he did for you to make you a strong Angel. Time of struggle should be your time to shine. #StayWithAGoal” – Glen Norman Jr.$9.20 Select options
The Crockett family is a soccer family. All three of their sons grew up playing on tournament teams, so naturally when their youngest son, Dusty, scores the winning goal for the state championship game, the Crocketts host a celebration for the teammates and their families. The only downside to the get-together is that their oldest son, Travis, is unable to be there. Travis Crockett is a hero to all of the members of Dusty’s soccer team, especially after he singlehandedly beat all fifteen of them at King of the Mountain last summer. But as a Navy SEAL, he has the respect of most people. His love for family and country is catching, so even though he is currently serving in Afghanistan, the partygoers can’t help but ask the Crocketts how he’s fairing and reminisce about their favorite times with Travis, especially after his wife, Laci, shows up with news from her ultrasound. The Crockett family thought they had planned the perfect day, that is until The Knock. Join new author Marc Hardage in this heartbreaking novel about the impact one man’s life has on those around him.
“As an enlisted member and a chaplain who has served in this admirable community for thirty-six years, I consider The Knock extraordinary. It is a picture of the countless sacrifices that are continually made by the brave service members who serve in this nation’s military and their families. Less than 1 percent of the population of this nation is willing to serve in that capacity. The Knock reminds the reader that freedom is never free!”
—Chaplain Ted Wilson, OCFD

From a childhood of abuse came loneliness, fears, and torments in my life. Then going through a nervous breakdown, an abusive marriage, and a desire no longer to live, one day miraculously it all began to change.
Reading my testimony you too will come to realize that God not only protected me, but God Himself is now using my yesterdays for His Glory. God saved me to be here for each one of you.
The spark of life that seemed to no longer be within me was still present, and burns more than ever brighter today.
Never did I imagine after raising a family that God would so powerfully come into my life. It all began 1993 when He led me to Yugoslavia on a pilgrimage, then in 2003 He once again led my husband and myself to a Bible College in Colorado.
Then upon graduation we were ordained as ministers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. God had already let us know that we were to be founders of Message of the Cross Ministries, which today gives me more joy than I had ever hoped for in this life.
Just as my earlier life began as a mighty disaster, this now new life in and through Jesus Christ has just the opposite effect and meaning!
Traveling is one of my desires, and I patiently wait to see yet more of God’s creation and beauty for all of us.
Without Jesus Christ I am weak; with Him I am strong. He is my all. Visions, Dreams, Signs, and Wonders!
God began to show me things in the Supernatural realm almost twenty years ago; but until now He has never led me to talk about them.
God has chosen this book for me to tell and reveal things that some of you may have never heard of before now.
Through me God wants you to know more about Him while you are still on this earth. So as you read the words written in this book, you too will discover that there are deeper things about God then what we as humans may think there is sometimes!
