Truths about God, Jesus and Christianity






Read more.
"This is an exceptionally important book which should be read, re-read, and inwardly digested by all Christians, anyone wanting to learn more about God, and anyone seeking truth in general." ~Lloyd Regas; Streamcare Corporation

Every day of our lives we absorb millions of pieces of information into our minds that, over time, form the way we look at the world. The problem is, the things we're taught are not always true. Especially when it comes to religion, there are so many people and ideas out there that it's almost impossible to have a clean view of it.
                                                                               
Find Your Way Home: 6 Truths About God, Jesus, and Christianity examines some of the most common and frustrating myths that culture has taught us about Christian spirituality. Ranging all the way from the hard subject of Hell (and people's wrong ideas about it) to inspirational reminders about God's real love, the book is written in a completely non-combative tone; all from the point of view of an everyman making his simple observations about eternal truths.
                                                                                
In the book, there are 6 Cultural Myths about Christianity that the author unpacks based on his own observations from watching himself and other Christians.
                                                                                  
Each myth is examined not with heady theology, but with clean and straightforward verses. In this heartfelt book, the author speaks to everyday people, using everyday insights to share truths that are both simple and profound.

Marketing Expert Urges Authors to Make Monumental Moves




 
 
Often, a first-time author finds it hard to promote his or her new publication. Typically, authors view themselves as artists. It can be hard to equate artistic talents with the skills of a business person. Yet an author's ability to achieve that hard-to-reach goal determines his or her chances for success.
A desirable characteristic in any website
A website provides an author with the chance to display the capacity for combining craft and entrepreneurial abilities. Indeed, Jay Acunzo, a man that encourages monumental shifts in marketing views the marketer as a person that is performing a craft. He studies different websites, looking for examples of a cool marketing trick.
He recently found one, but has not yet posted all the details on his own blog. Smart authors should welcome this chance to get a head start on their competition. Some noteworthy facts about Acunzo's discovery have been tucked into this blog post.
A writer that had read some of the content on Acunzo's website wanted to provide him with an insightful piece of information. That reader shared the name of a website that has taken a fresh approach to the task of crafting a website. Authors that aspire to establishment of a link between their online presence and one site's unique features should click onto this URL: http://iggychips.com .
A cool trick to use within an author's website
The owner of the company that makes Iggy Chips shares with authors the challenge of having to venture out on his own. He rose to that challenge, when he posted online the information about his "team." Each member of that team has been pictured on a designated web page. Those pictures reveal a significant fact about each member of that entrepreneur's team.
All of the pictures show an iguana in his or her habitat. Unlike most iguanas, the ones associated with this particular chip wear hats and sunglasses. In addition, each of them has a name, along with a short biography. Those posted biographies help to enliven the content on iggychips.com.
The message to book authors
While writing a book, an author's ability to be creative gets tested. After publication of the author's latest works, that same creativity remains useful, because it aids formation of a site that stands out from other websites. Yet, at that same time the author's creativity must work hand-in-hand with a certain amount of business sense.
A book author wants to have an audience, i.e. lots of readers. A site's content can aid the building of such an audience. Authors that appreciate that fact can succeed at combining a creative spirit with an entrepreneurial outlook.
The characters in an author's book can serve as his or her "team." The presentation of that team can underscore the unique nature of the website associated with a given publication. That uniqueness will not escape the perceptive senses of Google's spyder. Hence, it works to place an author's website higher on the list of all the ranked websites. It might even encourage formation of links to the URL associated with the latest book by that same author.
Authors should copy the habit of marketers like Jay Acunzo. Each of them ought to make a point of studying various websites. Not all the studied sites need to be ones that were put together by other authors. Some can be sites for products that seem to have no relation to the publishing industry or to the focus of the book that needs to be promoted.

BIO: Sue Chehrenegar became interested in book promotion after a story she had written was included in an anthology. A good back cover helps to enhance a promotional effort. Sue has written this guest blog post as a way to help other authors.

...a god's love for a mortal woman....

â€&lsqauo;â€&lsqauo;â€&lsqauo;â€&lsqauo;â€&lsqauo;â€&lsqauo;â€&lsqauo;

Aphrodite, the goddess of Beauty, has blessed the mortal girl Psyche with a lovely face that captivates the admiration of all who seeher. Psyche, however, offends the goddess by thinking more of winning her malicious sisters' approval than of the gifts the goddess has given her.

Although the oracle of Apollo promised Psyche a marvelous marriage to someone "not human," Aphrodite resolves to destroy her happiness by asking her son Eros, the god of Love, to punish Psyche with a life of lovelessness.

Aphrodite's plans go wrong when Eros accidentally wounds himself with his own arrow while attempting to carry out his mother's will, falling in love with the woman his mother hates.

Knowing that his mother doesn't approve and torn between the two women he loves most, Eros pursues Psyche by deceiving his mother and concealing his identify from Psyche.

Perplexed by Eros' invisibility and his passion for her, Psyche is tempted by her jealous sisters to sabotage her romance.

Psyche must choose between betrayal and fidelity and suffer the consequences of her decision, just as Eros must connive to win her love and the approval of his mother. Both of them must be put to the test in order to find their heart's desire.

Your Best Writing May Not Be What You Think By Carolyn Howard-Johnson


One of the biggest writing problems I see among people in my mentoring
program, and others who hire me to improve their writing, is that they're
afraid to write like they talk.

They never use one-word sentences.


They refuse to start sentences with words such as "and" and "but" because an elementary teacher way back when told them not to.

They try to sound important when they write. So they use long words in long sentences that make up long paragraphs.

They remove all slang from their writing so it's clean and pure. And
often, boring.

Business coach Michael Angier agrees.

"Too many times, I see people who are good verbal communicators try to put
on a different air in their writing," he says. "It doesn't work. It's much
better to be conversational."

Writing like you talk is one of 13 tips Michael offers for writing clearly
and convincingly. It was one of the lead articles in an issue of
Joan Stewart's free subscription newsletter, The Publicity Hound.
Nina Amir's book, Wired for Story (http://bit.ly/Wired4Story), shows us how humans from times long before writing were storytellers and how we are indeed "wired for story." We also call it anecdote. It works for articles like this. It works for novels—great novels. And you'll see it appearing more and more often as part of news stories. Another book I recommend is Tom Chiarella's Writing Dialogue (http://bit.ly/Chiarella) published by Writer's Digest. You may find it inexpensively on Amazon's New and Used feature.
In the newest book in my multi award-winning HowToDoItFrugally Series of books for writing, How to Get Great Book Reviews Frugally and Ethically, I remind authors that the best blurbs and endorsements come from people who compliment their books and their style in off-the-cuff conversations. When asked to write a blurb or endorsement, their language becomes stiff, official—and unconvincing. I tell them to ask their contacts if they can use what their reader just said to them rather than having them back up and make it into a brittle, lifeless twig.

When authors keep in mind that their readers probably spent many years reading staid textbooks and prefer to learn what they need quickly, they'll find that their readers bond to them. To matter the genre or kind of copy, connection is an important word to consider. Think loyalty. Think bonding. It isn't more important, but think retention, too!

"Shining a Positive Light on Down Syndrome" - Focus on the Family interviews Robert & Trevor Hendershot on World Down Syndrome Day, Tuesday, March 21, 2017





From author Robert Hendershot:
 
Greetings to all of you who have been supportive of Trevor and me over the years...however briefly, recently or even many years ago! 
 
Trevor and I are going to be the subjects of an interview "Shining a Positive Light on Down Syndrome", that will air on Focus on the Family's international radio show broadcast on World Down Syndrome Day, this Tuesday, March 21.

Locally in Southern California, the show can be heard on KKLA 99.5 FM at 4:30, 7:30, 11:30 am and then 10:00 pm.

The show can also be listened to on-line by clicking the links below.
 
We've also formed a 501(c)3 non-profit www.angelsforhigher.org to help facilitate the "Trevorizing" of every sports stadium on planet earth, and thereby transforming the pro-life, special needs culture of the world...one sport stadium at a time.
 
In addition, we've revised, reformatted, retitled and redeemed our original book to Angel for Higher, which can be obtained from our website.
Amazon just indicated that Angel for Higher is the "#1 New Release in Special Needs Children's Health", yay!

While this designation probably won't result in 'Harry Potter-esque' sales numbers, if we can help one person in our target audience who's struggling with addictions and/or facing the challenges of raising a special needs child, then I will have been repaid "...for the years the locusts have eaten." (Joel 2:25)
 
Finally, Trevor and I were also recently invited to appear on a live radio interview on The Bottom Line show, hosted by Roger Marsh, on World Down Syndrome Day, 3/21, from 4:00 to 5:00 pm.
This show can be heard locally on KBRT AM 740, listened on-line at www.kbriteradio.com or later in podcast at www.thebottomlineshow.com.
 
"The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace."
 
Bob and Trevor
 
 
On World Down Syndrome Day, March 21, 2017, Robert and his son Trevor, who has Down syndrome, will be the subjects of an interview "Shining a Positive Light on Down Syndrome" conducted by Focus on the Family's President Jim Daly and Co-host John Fuller, and then broadcast to millions of listeners across the USA and around the world.

​​​​​​​
 Mission Statement
 
"Angels for Higher will help facilitate the gainful employment of individuals with Down syndrome at sports stadiums across the United States and around the world."

                                                                                                                            Values Statement
 
"We believe that individuals with Down syndrome working in stadiums as both valuable employees and pro-life ambassadors will help the world appreciate how our omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent God has created each and every human being to be incredibly precious, infinitely valuable and eternally significant in His sight."   
 
This is an incredible book. I laughed and cried reading it. One of the statements that ministered to me was "Now that this has happened, God, how should I respond?"  ~Carla C.
 
ABOUT THE BOOK
 
Angel for Higher chronicles the joyfully inspirational journey of Robert Hendershot, a recovering alcoholic, and his son Trevor, who has Down syndrome, as they seek God's will for their lives.
 
The practical lessons God taught Robert in his recovery helped him to become a better father to Trevor, and vice versa, the spiritual lessons God taught him as Trevor's dad have helped him to remain sober since August 24, 1997.
 
During Trevor's early school years he was bullied and told he was worthless. Nevertheless, as a senior he was elected Homecoming King in the greatest landslide in his high school's history.
 
Trevor was also told that the best job he could ever hope for would be folding towels in a hotel laundromat. However, after graduating he was hired by Major League Baseball's Los Angeles Angels and by the National Hockey League's Anaheim Ducks to be the Greeter at their Team Stores.
 
Trevor's known, admired and often loved by hundreds of thousands of sports fans, fellow employees and professional athletes.
 
Robert and Trevor are in the process of forming a 501c3 non-profit corporation, Angels For Higher, to help facilitate the "Trevorizing" of additional stadiums and arenas. Their mission is to encourage the hiring of individuals with Down syndrome to work as greeters (and pro-life ambassadors) at sports venues across North America and ultimately around the world.
 
"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we can ask or imagine…" (Ephesians 3:20)
