  • 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.”

    “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.

  • New Road Leading To Christ

    The New Road Leading To Christ

    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!

  • The Value of a Homemaker - A Memoir

    The Value of a Homemaker: A Memoir

    “I was fortunate to have three sisters and two brothers. I would be the youngest of three or the oldest of four. Growing up would not be an ordinary experience for any of us. Yet, amazingly we persevered. I believe all of us were determined and chose to do and be better— not repeat the same mistakes. Memories of our mother gentle and loving but frail and medicated too often. Our father instilled fear for he never was taught or shown real nurturing love himself. Later, we would all understand the dynamics of both our parents and we would forgive.

    My dreams were to be a singer, dancer, artist and missionary—one day. I have done it all in some small capacity and on borrowed time. I would marry while a junior in high school and have a son on my husband’s birthday. Then, we were young and in love and determined to defy the odds. We would have three children and achieve incredible financial success during the process. But, in the end I would be sacrificed and my husband rewarded. Divorced, appealed and annulled—I was compelled to write my first book—my story, for understanding and to make a difference…”
