A Must Read .. When Good Samaritans Get Mugged: Hope and Healing for Wounded Warriors,by David R. Stokes invites readers on a delightful road of forgiveness to thriving in every way.
Connecting the dots, the author leads readers through the art of storytelling, as Jesus did, to the discovery of grace (through Christ) and relates what that means for us.
He offers help through the application of forgiveness, mercy, love, patience, the Bible and God’s ways that challenges readers to make an inner-self survey. Dealing with such subjects as: anger, bitterness and unforgiveness, he shows readers the only way to having true and lasting inner peace – through reliance on God and complete forgiveness.
Knowing that we all get hurt, even when trying to do “good” things – and even by those who are within the church walls, he begins with the story of the Good Samaritan as a backdrop to the question: What do you do when you receive hurt and/or pain either physically, emotionally, or spiritually from other believers (and others in the world)? Offering true scriptural and Biblical answers, this book offers hope for the journey into forgiveness, the grace of God and a renewing of the mind that leads to maturity in Christ.
Using such Biblical examples as “Saul of Tarsus” who was later converted to the Apostle Paul and also Joseph’s story, the author also relates a number of compelling true-life stories that add intrigue and captivate one’s intellect and heart. Teaching and instructing along the way, the author advocates Scripture memorization as way to build the inner man and faith – as one learns to “take every thought captive”- and tend to your thoughts as you would a garden – plucking out the weeds. Filled with insightful wisdom, encouragement, inspiration, and a keen understanding for the ways of God, the author presents sound and practical advice on how to handle the hard punches in life.
Truthfully, there is not a person on this Earth who can say, “I’ve had a pain free life.” With that in mind, inevitably this book will touch you in some profound way. I have to say this is the only book, (that I read in only two sessions and wanted to read straight through). I could literally not put the book down! Filled with so much candor, the author gets to his point in a number of memorable ways through his great story telling ability that not only intertwine Scripture, history, Biblical figures, but also memorable sporting events, to include everyday citizens, that will impact your life.
Everyone has a story. His book relates this fact clearly and states that if we think about our life, you will understand we all need forgiveness on many levels in life, as he answers some hard questions about how to get over the past and move forward. As one who has lived through the up-and-downs of life as a pastor, father and seen many ministers that have quit along the way for various reasons, he knows what he is talking about.
This book is a highly recommended read for the Church, the Body of Christ, for pastors to hand out or for anyone looking to move forward and get better – not bitter. Additionally, also a great way to point others in the direction of what the Lord expects of His children, which is, “Yes, you are your brother’s keeper.”
With chapters such as: The “Ends” of the World, Eden’s
Analogy, The Death of Adam, The Righteous Shall Never Be Removed, Spare the
Rod-Spoil the Child, The Gathering, The Seventh Trumpet, The Twinkling of an
Eye, The Meeting in the Air, It Doth Not Yet Appear, Looking for His Appearing,
Lightning from the East, The Parable of the Ten Virgins, and Closing
Remarks clears the author also ends confusion about the return of the Lord,
the End Times, the Rapture, the Great Tribulation, with additional teachings on
Jesus’ parable and Scripture that lead the Body of Christ into spiritual
maturity, thus emanating the image of God. Additionally, with Greek root words
keen scriptural insight speaks of a transformation within that fosters a
renewing of the mind and debunks traditional church beliefs.
Adding that, “The religious church systems, both
denominational and nondenomination, alike have lost their first loves. Rather
than bringing their converts back into the image of God and revealing to them
their true identity.” The author has written a book to reveal true identity and
the purpose of the gospel of the Kingdom of God. His book preaches the Kingdom
and the transformation of the mind and spirit, to be led as Sons of God by the
spirit of God.
This transformation takes place as we continue to reign with
Christ as Ambassadors of Christ and His Kingdom. Unveiling the meaning of the Twelve
Tribes of Israel, leads us to twelve gates of Heaven that are a Fellowship of
Suffering – all must partake of to enter. This is spiritual maturity, as one
grows from glory to glory. The Church has forgotten this or does not know it. Dethroning of the carnal mind to a perfected
mind in Jesus Christ, as His Bride, is the process the church must go through.
Brian Donnelly, Author of “The Recreation of Planet Earth and The Real Account of Life’s Beginnings”
This article is written for the average person who has not studied the Theory of Evolution in depth and is confused as to what to believe. I will try to make this as basic as I can. So let’s start by first stating that the Theory of Evolution cannot be proven until Science first proves the Abiogenesis Hypothesis which basically states that ‘all of life’ started from absolutely nothing. Evolutionary scientists have told us that at some point in time single cell microorganisms appeared at the bottom of the sea. Single cell microorganisms and some multi celled organisms can only be seen with a microscope. Five hundred and forty million years ago an event occurred, so they say, called the Cambrian Explosion. Evidence of multi celled organism fossils were found at the bottom of the sea under rocks and burrows.
Charles Darwin was very worried about this because they seemingly appeared out of nowhere which was inconsistent with his theory of gradual change ‘overtime’. Scientists love to use this term (over time) to explain how the most bizarre of theories and hypotheses can possibly occur. An extreme example of this is that a single cell microorganism developed ‘over time’ to eventually produce a human being. I might add that the Cambrian period ended in a mass extinction. Never the less, this finding gave food for thought for scientists.
Scientists then began to hypothesize that maybe these creatures eventually came on land to begin life on Earth. Here are some of the theories. Maybe they came out from deep sea hydrothermal vents or warm water ponds (yes, they actually say this), or maybe a meteorite. Scientists don’t know what they came out as. Some have said – possibly a centipede-like creature or a salamander type and many other guesses as to what might have emerged on land. Scientists say they survived in spite of the fact that there was no oxygen on the planet or very little. So then, our ancestors could be bugs or fish. Now here is the best part. Through natural selection, as if nature has a mind, these creatures eventually developed (overtime) into trees, grass, apes, birds that fly, mastodons, elephants, tigers, lions, humans, etc., etc., etc. Charles Darwin concocted the natural selection hypothesis.
Now, after rinsing out all of the scientific brainwash, all of this could not have happened. The proof is that there is no proof of it ever happening. There is no evidence of any partially developed animals of any kind including the dinosaurs. No partially developed apes, no ¾ apes or ½ developed ape fossils were ever found. Also, no creature can survive with partially developed organs or brain. Even if we have the slightest problems with any of our organs, including our heart, we are in jeopardy without doctors and medicines. Picture a little bird starting to develop with no feathers, legs, eyes or digestive system how it could survive or even lay an egg so that the species could develop further. It could never even get to that point. Whatever came out of the ocean would even have difficulty surviving on land itself under harsh Earth conditions.
All fossils of any kind that were ever found were fully formed and complete. That could only have happened by creation and no other way. Charles Darwin worried about creatures appearing out of nowhere. That’s something he should have worried about because every living creature found on this planet appeared out of nowhere including Cro-Magnon man and Neanderthal man. If we use Occam’s razor the simple answer is that God created every creature that ever walked or crawled on this planet. The Bible tells us that God is the Creator of life. Moses wrote Genesis in the Bible, which tells the story of creation. In summary God told Moses that He created all the animals as well as Adam and Eve, the first real humans on Earth. This is eye witness testimony recorded by Moses. Moses was a real person and an exceptional religious figure. He was the leader of the Jewish nation at that time. If you don’t believe that God told him this, then you must determine that Moses was a liar and you rather believe in abiogenesis which says life created itself.
The Abiogenesis Hypothesis is far from believable. The reason it’s even out there is because scientists had to explain how life began without the help of God. Truthfully, if you back a scientist into a corner he or she will admit they really don’t know how life began. Sci-fi Hollywood movie producers, like Steven Spielberg, could come up with a much better hypothesis like – Life started on this planet with settlers arriving in a UFO from a faraway galaxy to colonize planet Earth. That would be more believable to some people then bugs coming out of the ocean.
Hypothesizing and theorizing, simply stated, means that we are guessing about something, using whatever knowledge we already have, to come to a conclusion before actually obtaining real proof or evidence. Many people believe anything a scientist tells them because they’re smart.But no Human can tell you what happened millions and billions of years ago. If a scientist presents you with proof of something or convincing evidence then it becomes believable. Theory is just that, theory. Evolutionary scientists do have an agenda to promote, which is, disproving the existence of the Creator (God) and they will go to great extremes to do so. Be careful.
Evolution has built its house on sand (abiogenesis). Without any proof of life developing from nothing, the Theory of Evolution crumbles like a house of cards. Scientists can’t say that once the Hominoids arrived here around 25 million years ago, one ape type spun off to create humans. They cannot prove this. But the real question becomes ‘from where did they arrive’? Understand that this is a serious problem for the case of evolution. Their case relies solely on theories and hypotheses. Finding fossils only tells us that many forms of life appeared on this planet. We all know this. Did one species develop into humans or did God just experiment with all different types of ape-like creatures Like Neanderthal man before he created Adam and Eve (real humans) in his own image. Ape like creatures took millions of years to develop primitive tools, but in just a few thousand years since the dawn of Adam and Eve, we have skyscrapers, automobiles, jet travel, rockets to the Moon, space stations, Internet systems, etc. Technology could not have developed so rapidly in such a short period of time by way of evolution.
During and after the Ice Age a mass extinction of creatures big and small took place on the planet. It is a strong possibility, considering the megafauna extinctions and the possible extinctions of all Hominins including Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon, that the slate was wiped clean and we started anew 6,000 years ago with the creation of modern day humans and animals that we know today that could have only been accomplished by God the Creator. There is a lot more about this in my book.
One final thought. When I see old movies of beautiful movie stars like Elizabeth Taylor and Doris Day and todays stars like Jennifer Lawrence and Rachel McAdams, plus all the beautiful models in the world I can’t picture them evolving from some form of ape. I love apes though. A silver back gorilla is a beautiful species of ape as are all the others. But when I compare their faces and particularly their figures to all the beautiful women of the world I wonder why, through Darwin’s natural selection hypothesis, a single cell microorganism (a woman’s original ancestor) decided to become an ape before it became a woman.It’s confusing, isn’t it? Believers, keep the faith.
Do any of you struggle like we did trying to find interesting kids books that teach obedience or telling the truth, sharing, being a good friend without being preachy or boring. We bought an entire series of kids books and would dread when our kids asked us to read one of them because they were hard to read and frankly not very interesting or realistic.
There are great kids books out there but the ones that make me want to pick them up again and again are the ones that are more realistic and even make me laugh a little because it may be real but it’s humorous.
When you read a kids book and a scene from the book makes you smile and say, “Yep, mine have done that,” or “I can see mine doing that too.” You can relate. It’s like the author actually has kids and has gone through what you are experiencing and knows how you feel.
If your child is already reading on their own, doesn’t it make you smile when you hear them laugh because they are reading and enjoying it. When they ask questions about a character who goes through some of these examples, that opens up conversations for you to share about honesty, bullying, obedience, selfishness, gossiping and so much more.
Sometimes kids have a hard time admitting they make many of these mistakes but if you can take the character and talk about them and how they were a bad sport or they were wasteful, or greedy, or destructible with their toys, it helps the child realize how they have been doing the same thing. It can open up conversations for you to share with your child the right way to handle a certain situation.
As a parent of three, I wanted my children and others as well to be able to enjoy reading while learning a valuable lesson about real life situations.

Samuel Adjeipong releases The Hidden Puzzle in Marriage: The Twist Against Choice. Unlocking secrets from a Biblical perspective to reveal the purpose, creation and institution of marriage. Offering readers a deep understanding of marriage, the author has written a detailed book that gives married couples and single individuals leading and instruction on God’s grand design. The author ties the marriage institution to the first marriage of Adam and Eve in the Garden.
Shedding light on why some marriages are strong, and why some fail, readers will appreciate this book as it gives the pathway to a bright and hopeful future with God, His grand design for your life and the institution of marriage. A CBM Book Review - 10.0 out of 10.0 stars
Unveiling a twist to choice that is in submission to the will of God, the author delves into the mystery of the Word of God, as God made woman from man. Digging deeper into the meaning of this creation of woman, the author also asks intricate questions in the book such as: “Can it be possible that God Almighty had the forethought of our satisfaction, contentment, and fulfillment in marriage when He initiated it in the Garden of Eden?” “And also what are His thoughts of intimacy in marriage?” “Can intimacy be nurtured?” “Should the choice of a spouse be my own or God’s” With these thoughts in mind, the author then considers the “puzzle” of marriage and how the pieces fit together between a man and a woman from a multi-dimensional view.
Excerpts from the Bible examine the lives of Abraham and Sarah, Rebekah and Eliezer, Ruth and Boaz, Jacob, and others to give further insight into the will of God and choices made from a Biblical perspective, providing insights into keys for success of marriage – unveiling heart attitudes and motives. Additionally addressing issues that singles and married couples face, the understanding of intimacy, and what makes a marriage thrive makes for an enthusiastic read designed to assist singles to be placed with their right mate and help couples connect, reconcile, and come together through prayer as one.

Psalm 19:14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer.
It is possible for a person with a carnal nature to control his words when he is around Christians. He is using his mind and will power to control his tongue. When a problem comes, the mind will go blank and then the spirit overrides the mind. You now see the tongue being controlled from the abundance of the heart.
The power of God is released through your words, so your words must be controlled by your spirit, instead of your mind. God’s faith has been planted in your spirit, so your words must be governed by the promises of God to meet a need. You now start tapping into the higher truth, which is connected to the power of God. As you start to control your body by the spirit, instead of the body controlling the spirit, you will see God’s power working in you.
Finding freedom and victory over depression and suicide.
Author Leo J. Battenhausen discusses the overwhelming and detrimental impact that depression and suicide are having upon society in the United States.
Alarming statistics from the World Health Organization (2016) that suicide and depression are presently at an epidemic high. The author also adds that the organization’s prediction is that by 2020 depression will be the most diagnosed disease after heart disease.
These facts, coupled with society’s views and attempts to “cure” depression with various treatments and drugs, bolster our culture that expresses itself as its own God. Selfishness, greed, media, government, and liberalism’s mantra have taken away from family and marriages like we have never seen before in the United States. With this in mind, the author makes an impressive statement – People need God and need to believe in God. With a focus on giving solutions to depression and suicide, intertwined with keen insight, he offers this book to help others recognize and be free in their souls from destructive thoughts and behaviors that are literally killing many.
Giving an overview of healthy parenting and relationships that include marriages, the author explores the human condition and the soul. Offering a laymen’s view of the soul, he explains the doubts we possess in relation to satisfying the deep void within. Despite technical advances in this information age, the author shares that we as humans are not developing as we should and have forgotten who we are. Advocating that parents invest in their children in meaningful ways, to include their parenting skills, he also exposes a spiritual side to the issue of the mind, soul and emotions. Offering readers an understanding of the realm of the soul, a secular worldview is also considered. His position is that we cannot ignore our souls, which is the essence of who we are.
Revealing what really wages war against our souls, will and emotions, the author has written a compassionate book that speaks frankly to believers and non-believers alike, sharing that there is hope and a solution to this soul problem. Well-balanced, informative, encouraging, his insight is an important work tackling the woes that plague our society, but more importantly offers real answers and hope that presents truth. The truth that God is real, and that we all need God, is something that the author will not compromise. Stating in his book description, “Soul Doubt breaks through with solution-focused answers and PROVEN ways to battle depression and suicide.”
Truthfully, this is a much-needed book in today’s society. As a skilled professional, he knows the human condition and speaks of the healing of the soul, mind and spirit. Presenting a wealth of knowledge, the spiritual battle, modern-psychology, the author offers real answers to those who are suffering or know someone who is suffering. This comes as a highly recommended must-read for all parents, married couples raising children, teens, young adults and newly married couples. 10.0 stars ~ CBM

Let your conduct be without covetousness, and be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, I will never leave you nor forsake you. Hebrews 13:5
Some Christians have felt that God had deserted them when they were having trouble. Others have been accused of living in sin because trouble came their way. Most of the time this is not true, because the enemy is trying to defeat you. God’s promises still stand when you have trouble, because He has promised to never leave you or forsake you. During times of trouble, go to God in prayer.
You must increase your Bible reading, which will increase your faith, see Romans 10:17. It then becomes necessary to believe what you have read and act on what you believe.

Without a doubt born out of much grief, her story is heartbreaking as she was orphaned at the age of 10 by violence that penetrated her home through her father who wounded her mother, which led to her death and his eventual suicide. Raised by her grandmother, the chronic grief opened unwanted “drama” in the author’s life. Finding herself with 2 babies and homeless by the age of 18, she was persuaded by Child Services to give her children to Foster Care, and soon followed their adoption.
An inspirational tool to young adults (especially young teenage girls) that need to understand that nothing is their fault (as the title denotes) and that God is able to complete the work He has begun. This is an amazing short prayer testimonial filled with Scriptural and foundational truths that renew the mind that will catapult readers towards thankfulness and the amazing love and grace of God.
