  • Lucien Bracquemont -  Endurance

    Endurance: An Autistic Autobiography

    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.

    About the author:

    Lucien Bracquemont of Maine is a 60-year-old workingclass individual with Asperger’s Syndrome (on the autistic spectrum) who has survived not only emotional and mental abuse and disabilities but cancer at age 41 as well. He has a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy and two years of theological training. His current job and relationships bring him into constant contact with emotionally and mentally challenged individuals. 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.

    David McEwen did not set out to be a writer. He grew up on the family farm outside White Lake, Ontario attending high school in Arnprior with a dream of being a forest ranger. His teen years were spent working on the family farm, preparing for forestry college and working with horses at a riding establishment started by his father and uncle which included competing in horseshoes and amateur rodeos.

    About the author:

    The human body is a wondrous work of nature and is limited in what it can do mainly by the mind itself.

    In 1976 the author was working at his “dream job” with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and planning his upcoming wedding. While returning from an event tied to that wedding, he was a passenger in a terrible car crash that left him disabled and changed his life forever. This book covers some of the struggles that he went through and the adaptations that can be made when one takes control over one’s mind.

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).

    About the Author:

    In 2001 he develops prostate cancer and again consults Dr. Wong. Chinese herbs slow the disease’s progression for years, until 2011 when faced with a gradually worsening situation, Wong suggests they fly to Beijing. Once there, the author will undergo a novel form of treatment in a military hospital; his doctor will be a colonel in the Chinese Air Force. Lifeline, a Memoir depicts the unusual situations that the two men often encounter with poignancy, pathos and humor. Written in concise language, the book also contains numerous photographs taken by the author.

  • Living in a Land Where no Apples Grow

    Living in a Land Where no Apples Grow

    Hi, there!

    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.

    Love,
    Christel

  • Mother, If in Heaven There Are No Apples, I Don't Want to Go There

    Mother, If in Heaven There Are No Apples, I Don’t Want to Go There

    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.”

  • Amanda Lamb - The Joy of Forgiving

    Psalm 32: The Joy of Forgiving

My oldest daughter Jordan attends South Alabama in Mobile, soon to graduate and my youngest daughter Makenzie attends Troy University in Troy, 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

    This is a testimony about true renewal and to find my place with God. 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 ended up on my knees asking God, “Why me?” Sometimes we have to let go of everything in this world to find our place with Him. When I was at my lowest God scooped me up and He truly saved me. I heard His audible voice and I want to live and tell everyone that He is Real and Amazing!!
