    A Veteran’s How-to Guide

    This book offers a detailed description of the veteran’s journey from the initial visit to the Veteran’s administration facility where the vet meets the veteran’s service officer (VSO) to finally receiving his/her first benefit check. The primary goal of this book is to make the journey “user friendly” and rewarding for both the veteran and his/her family. Every person who applies will need a support team, a knowledgeable VSO and faith in God. Those three things will provide the tools necessary to get through the DVA disability process in a time efficient and less frustrating manner.

    Anthology of An Autistic Author Aiming to Advocate for Ahimsa (Non-Violence)

    This book is a collection of the first five books I’ve written. While all the books were written at different times and for different reasons, they all follow the general theme of advocating for non-violence. While some may find my books entertaining, the main reason you might want to read my books is because they will make you think and question what you have been taught by society in general. A lot of harm is done by people just agreeing with popular opinion rather than thinking about whether or not what they are being told is true.

    I am an animal lucky enough to have fingers and a computer to type my thoughts of what I think of the world. My hope is that others will enjoy what I have written and learn things that will lead to positive change in the world. I would like to see a world of peace where no one gets hurt. Because of this, my books have a strong anti-violence theme and it’s well known that I think the world needs to go vegan and also find ways to prevent abortion, war, and other forms of murder.

    DARE TO BE WHO YOU REALLY ARE

    Many years ago, as I was describing the latest saga in my bizarre life to a dear friend, she suggested I write a book about my life. Eventually, over a period of several years, I started writing down these short stories and finally put them together into a book. It was then that I realized that many of my life experiences had a profound impact on who I was and how I thought. I started out as a quiet, shy person who was unsure of herself and her abilities. Even though I had grown up a” ending church every Sunday, trying to follow the teachings of the Bible, I knew something was missing in my life. Eventually I married a United Methodist minister and we raised two children together. The challenges we faced during our years in the ministry allowed me to grow in strength and confidence. I was continually learning new life lessons as God put me in positions where I could be of help while caring for the needs and problems of others. As God led me to take on leadership roles, I found I could depend on His guidance and continual support. I was energized as He guided me to use my creative and artistic talents. Then one day the doctor told me I had a tumor and needed major surgery, all at the same time my husband was being put on trial by the church for behavior unbecoming of a minister. When you are down and out is when you find out about your faith and God’s power to turn things around. Never before had I envisioned the challenges I was yet to face. I knew that God was not finished with me and that I had much more to accomplish. Praise God!

  • Leadership    By The Book

    Leadership – By The Book

    Here is a book that has something to say to all of us. The abundant quotations in this book go off like fireworks. Any number of them could change your life whether you serve in ministry, business, education or parenting.

    One pastor of a large church said that he carried a copy of the author’s original booklet, “Mistakes Leaders Make,” in both his briefcases so that no matter where he was he could reference the material.

    The popular format of that booklet is retained in this greatly expanded edition. The two major parts, “What Leadership Is …” and “What Leadership Does Not …” are made up of stand-alone “do’s” and “don’ts.” Read as much or as little as you have time for. Then, pick up where you left off. The author’s 23 watercolor and pen and ink sketches of leaders from various professions add life, vibrancy and personality to this work.

    Missionary Mark Sigstad wrote to say that a Nigerian pastor who had left his church got back into the ministry as a church planter largely because of the original booklet. We can only pray that this volume is of similar benefit.

    General George Patton who was one of Dwight Eisenhower’s instructors at Fort Leavenworth in 1926 predicted that he would one day work for Eisenhower! This book tells you why that prediction came to pass.

    The Governor who had time for blind children later won the American Presidency by more Electoral College votes than any other man in history. This book tells the story.

    Warren W. Wiersbe, prolific author, broadcaster and pastor said, “This is an excellent book … I am reading it, learning from it and enjoying it. It is a refreshing change from much of what’s out there on leadership today.”
