I want to thank God first and foremost for giving me the inspirations and vision to write a ninety day devotional book. I pray that it will help others get through their day and reflect on the one true God who is Holy, Worthy, and can bless their life abundantly as he has mine through his son, Jesus!

A lot of people may not want to give their entire testimony in a book or even tell it, for that matter. They may feel if they did they would give Satan all the fame instead of God, who brought them out of that despair. However, what about all of the ones who are going through what you have already been through? I believe people connect with others in knowing that they’ve been there. I feel like God allows us to go through crisis in our lives in order to help pull other people out of a similar situation they are going through. If I can help just one person by telling my entire testimony and prevent them from going down into the pit of depression, destruction, despair, and disillusionment, as I did, then it will all be worth it. I wish more women would be like the woman in the Bible who knew if she could just touch the garment of Jesus as he walked by, she would be healed. I also wish more women would open up about their lives and what they’ve been through like the woman at the well in Samaria in the Bible. She had a radical encounter with Jesus and let the whole town know about it in hopes that they would believe in Him also. I have skeletons in my closet that should probably stay there according to Satan, but, if I open the door to let others know how Jesus redeemed me, I won’t regret it.

In remote Duckett County, Georgia, being “tetched” is normal since the gene selection comes from a blow-up wading pool. A buck is hard to come by, but the locals can be as resourceful as ticks on an armadillo. After all, upward mobility means moving from a single-wide to a double-wide.

When newcomer Jasmine Roseberry stumbles on the body part that the locals name “Elvis,” young Sheriff Todd “Fearless” McPherson ends up in the biggest pickle of his short career. The news vultures descend, and Todd’s deputies are making a muddle of things. Todd himself is having trouble keeping his head in the game because he has a biggy-sized crush on Jasmine. Meanwhile, Jasmine is discovering that the numbers aren’t adding up at her new job.

Revelation is the only book in the Bible with the promise that anyone who reads it, listens to its words and takes it to heart will be blessed. (Revelation 1:3)

The current chaos of today’s world should not take any Christian by surprise. God warns us about it and explains what is to come in his last message to His church – the book of Revelation. Revelation is the unveiling of Jesus Christ. In it, God tells us everything that will happen in the future – both on earth and in heaven – beginning from the ascension of Christ. Studies in Revelation is a verse-by-verse expository study using the original Greek language to unpack what God is telling us through the witness of the apostle John. The Rev. Lavay McCullough draws on 50-plus years of in-depth Bible study. He has preached through this important book numerous times.

The “scraps and bits” are from feature articles the author has written in the Pickens County Progress newspaper of Jasper, Georgia. In Another Patchwork Quilt, you will continue to explore Ball Ground’s past, including reliving the area’s tragic Civil War years which saw scores of area residents lose their lives in a “war within a war.” You’ll read about a gold mine with a production that rivaled mines in California, as well as a school which rose from the ashes twice. You’ll meet some of the town’s interesting people, including past residents like an eccentric but respected doctor, current residents like a dedicated youth baseball coach, and former residents like a beloved mother who recently passed away. You’ll visit places such as a stately neoclassical mansion which has stood atop a hill in Ball Ground for a century as well as a half dozen other historic homes. You’ll take a look into Ball Ground’s crystal ball and foresee what may be on the horizon for this quaint little town, including an in-depth look at a unique restaurant that has become an iconic landmark. In a special and very moving section about Ball Ground’s heroes, you’ll read about an P-38 fighter pilot who flew forty-six missions before being shot down over German occupied Poland, and a Navy sailor whose faith helped him survive a Japanese attack on the USS Franklin aircraft carrier, the second worst U. S. naval disaster of World War II. Whether you’re a long-time resident of Ball Ground, a recent move-in, or just curious about this very special little town, you’ll enjoy reading every page of this second installment of the Patchwork Quilt series.

What one is born into becomes a factor. The choices one makes or doesn’t make after the age of reason all evolve into a life well lived, or barely endured.

Gender disparities in specific science, engineering, technology, and mathematics (STEM) degrees are apparent in the United States’ higher education reports (e.g., National Science Committee on Science and Engineering Indicators, 2014). There is a lack of understanding female STEM majors’ selection that can be addressed by personality, STEM interest (INT), STEM self-efficacy (SE), and mathematics anxiety (MA), and understanding the relationship between those factors. The purpose of the study was to describe, compare, and predict female STEM majors based on personal factors (i.e., INT, SE, MA, and personality) through the following strands: (a) to examine the association of female STEM majors’ personality and INT, SE, and MA, (b) to compare the personality traits between females non-STEM and STEM majors, and (c) to predict the likelihood of a female majoring in a STEM field based on her INT, SE, and MA. This research survey data was collected from 128 female undergraduate students, including STEM (n = 62) and non-STEM majors (n = 63). Instruments include the Big Five Inventory (John, Donahue, & Kentle, 1991; John, Naumann, & Soto, 2008), STEM items on the Basic Interest Markers (Liao, Armstrong, & Rounds, 2008), and Nauta’s (1997) adaptation of Lent, Brown, and Larkin’s (1986) Self-Efficacy for Academic Milestones Scale. Results revealed neuroticism was positively related to MA, and conscientiousness and agreeableness were negatively related to MA. SE predicted INT, MA, and majoring in STEM. Finally, the study found STEM majors were more open than non-STEM majors. This research has implications for identifying female STEM majors who may have MA, decreasing those students’ MA, and recruiting females who would be open to a STEM career.

But a turn of events shoves her out of her newfound comfort zone. Now she realizes the man she loves comes with a piece of baggage packed so full of evil it’s beyond her comprehension.

Not many people have, neither had the protagonist of this novel.

In a gathering storm, with cherry blossoms swirling around the Tidal Basin, astrophysicist JOANNA NICKELS-STEWART, races to meet her future father-in-law, a powerful Southern senator, who confronts her with a mystery that requires her to put her present life on “hold” and journey to Peru to find answers. While there, she interrupts the search to fulfill a promise made to a family member to visit an elderly cloistered nun in a 16th Century monastery in Cuzco. As a result, Joanna stumbles upon an even greater mystery—involving Acllas (ak-yas), the so-called Incan Virgins of the Sun—that has implications for her life she could never have imagined. The reader is invited to join her on an adventure that evolves into ever-broadening contexts of experience, ending with stunning insights into her life, ancient astronomy, and the mystery surrounding Machu Picchu.

When a group of settlers move into the Appalachian Mountains, they face the monumental task of carving new farms from a frontier area. For those settlers, the task is made easier because they can rely on slaves they brought with them. But for the slaves, this new area means not just brutally hard work, but separation from families they left behind. And for one of those slaves, a young woman, it means additional indignities: not only is she her owner’s slave—she is his daughter as well.

The Slave Daughter is based on a true story, now largely shrouded in time. From that story Bob Lipscomb has crafted a novel portraying the slaves’ fears and suffering, but by recounting their endurance and courage, he has demonstrated their towering humanity.

Moses told the Israelites, “In the morning you shall say, ‘Would that it were evening!’ And at the evening you shall say, ‘Would that it were morning!’ because of the dread of your heart.” We feel that way some days.

The prayers in this book ask God to hear our pleas for help with disappointments when others let us down . . . hurt when words are harsh . . . forgiving when we don’t want to . . . feeling alone when we lose our way . . . attitudes that spoil the day for those around us . . . everyday struggles. Others remind us of our hope in Him and His grace and forgiveness. There are prayers of praise and thanksgiving, for wisdom and direction, and prayers for blessings.

The blessings of God’s daily care for us may especially shine through if we read them aloud as they were first given in a worship setting and may provide us with an even greater understanding of their message for our own devotional time.

Dawson Co. History f coverSince its organization in 1987, the Dawson County Historical and Genealogical Society has looked for someone to write an “official” history of the county, authenticated by research and records.

There have been several books, both factual and fiction based on historical events and people, which have recorded different aspects of the county’s history. Numerous articles in newspapers and magazines have highlighted specific people, places, and events. This book, authorized by the Dawson County Board of Commissioners, is the culmination of work by several members of the Society to bring together official records, research by earlier historians, and memories – both written and oral.

This Volume is an autobiography, a collection of stories, anecdotes and vignettes, mostly chronological but some topical, as I remember the events and the times in which they occurred. It is my recollection about life as I saw it and lived it, the good times and the not-so-good, life as viewed through the eyes of an eternal optimist and dreamer who had his share of ups and downs. I have had a good life, an interesting life, a life full of constant challenges and decisions, a time filled with opportunities sought and goals achieved. As you'll read, I still remember a lot of it --- and in more detail than you might expect. They were written to be readable and informative and hopefully enjoyable.

Millions of Americans, of all faiths and cultures, believe America is a Special Nation, whose God given role was and is to be an example of a nation led by God - to restore freedom and liberty to an enslaved world - but know not how to support their beliefs. Covenant Nation provides those believers with the how and why America was and is that Special Nation raised up by God, via men endowed for that very purpose. George Washington declared, in 1796, "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensible support. ..." These words caused the author to ponder the role the Bible played in the creation of America Declaration of Independence and Constitution. His findings led to this book, a book that will inspire the 'believers' because it: 1. reviews those historical events leading up to America's creation in 1776; 2. shows what biblical verses influenced the creation of the United States of America; 3. defines true governmental freedom; 4. Suggests how 'believing' Americans, using an ageless biblical formula, can become involved in restoring America to its biblically principled roots. Covenant Nation declares America's future is still bright but that it is in the hands of those Americans who still believe America is a 'Special Nation' - and in their hands alone.

A Collection of Devotional Poems

From Morning Prayer

I Talked With Him This Morning is a collection of poems that have arisen out of my morning meditation over the past three and a half years since retiring. The collection began as a continuation of my custom of writing a poem each week that would capture the main point of the sermon I was preaching the upcoming Sunday. It was my intention that by capturing the main point of the sermon in a brief poem and having that printed on the bulletin each week, members of the congregation could take it home and think about it during the week. Having it in something of rhyming verse made it easier to remember and chew on.

Since the first hunter-gathers came home with a Brontosaurs leg and the ladies of the cave said, “Ug mug sug dug” (which means, “Where did you get that?”), men have been telling hunting stories; however, no two cave men told the story the same way. Some men told the story of the hunt and everyone went to sleep. Others told the same hunting story and it was magically transformed. Carrying this concept forward in time to this book, the storyteller (that would be me) is seeking to do the same thing as the storytellers of old… entertain the cave dwellers. Some of these stories may touch your heart strings and some are just stories proceeding from my heat oppressed brain. You have my permission to decide for yourself which is which..

 Della has lived a jarring life of many highs and lows, but somehow managed to cope with her hardships. The story of her faith-filled journey together with the leading ladies in her life, including her mother, when her mother is on her death bed and her oldest daughter, Pat, after Della has an untimely, sudden stroke which initially paralyzed the left side of her body but not her soul or will to live is stated here. In her first book, Della speaks out as a Bible teacher, seminarian, daughter and mother on her struggles as a stroke survivor. She uses poignant language and descriptions, but simple words to show her vulnerability as a survivor and not a victim, giving an account of her stroke rehabilitation and her healing with fervent prayers in an effort to receive love, forgive, be affirmed and confidant again after childhood trauma and adulthood rejection from her mother. Her prayers are answered. After more than 10 years, Della finally receives the unconditional love from her mother that she was seeking for a lifetime. Although her mother cannot talk, in a warm but instantaneous moment, she physically reaches out with love to Della while dying from breast cancer in intensive care. With her youngest brother serving as a low-key but calm and patient mediator, the communication impasse is overcome and Della's spiritual, mental, and emotional healing arise. Despite the prior rejection of her mother, Della rapidly overcomes the years of silence between them through trust in God, allegiance, prayer, and the ample love of her daughter, Pat. This book effort shows Della enthusiastically embracing the similarities of the trio which include an adoration for volunteering, mission work, gardening, and lifelong learning.

Orphan f coverIn the mid-1800s Charles Brace headed a group of reformers to help the poor, street children. This group came to be known as The Children's Aid Society. Its goal was to take the children off the streets, feed, clothe, and educate them. Once that was accomplished, these children were then moved westward where they were placed with foster parents. In most cases, this was successful. However, sometimes it was not. This is a fictional account of the life of a successful orphan. Many Government and private social services have reduced the number of street children. However, it is the hope of the author that, for those that remain, that attention be given to their plight.

We spent more time together than I've ever managed to accomplish with any human being. Call me crazy; I preferred it that way.

They serve as comforting reminders that even though she's gone, her mark on my life will never be forgotten. Love Never Fails takes you through an amazing journey of cancer, loss, and life ever after ... an enjoyable discovery of unconditional love through the heartwarming eyes and ears of one beloved pet named Ginger.

Getting to go to the assisted living homes and sitting with these people I realized that a lot of what is in the History books is wrong and it's gradually being removed all together. That's why it's so important to get these stories out there and bring our History back, not someone' s opinion but the stories from those who were there and the ones here that had to sacrifice so much to give us the freedoms that we have today.

Even as a young wife and mother, I would find some time to spend with the Lord - sometimes it might only be ten or fifteen minutes, but I was committed. Through the years, especially after my children were grown-up and out of our home, I found I was able to have my 'Quiet Time' the first thing in the morning. Then I began to journal, to write down my thoughts about God and what He was doing in my life; special scriptures He would give me, and the many things he was teaching me. Oh these times were, and still are, so special! This way of meeting with the Lord became my way of life.

Kavaldo f coverOffering herein are the reflections of Paul E. Ferrier, a native of Haiti who grew up during a time before television was available to entertain and expand horizons of children. During his early childhood, elders of his family and community verbally relayed, often quite expressively and with the exuberant gestures, tales passed down through generations. Although reciting stories to youngsters have been replaced in modern society by multiple media, Paul wishes to keep these stories - so germane to his heritage - alive for future generations.



Many years ago, there was a wise man called Kavadlo.  Come with Kavadlo on a spiritual journey filled with wondrous sights both joyful and tragic as he searches for his purpose in the world. You will be glad you did!                             The book is beautifully illustrated in color by Katherine Gettys

shady brook f cover smallLong before Shady Brook became a YMCA camp for boys and girls, it was a playground, respite and resort for the Bandhauer family. This work examines the camp's history through carefully selected photographs, memorabilia, historical documents and the author's personal experience. As both a documentary and memoir, the journey of a family with roots in Prussia and the camp's present-day life will be explored. The family's history tells a story of immigration, entre-preneurial pursuits, financial hardships, tragedy and survival. From the time the Bandhauers owned the property until after it became a YMCA camp in 1948, Shady Brook has been a portal into the wilderness for discovery and the divine relationship between man and nature. This is the story, not only of a family, but of a place. This place is of red-brown gravel ground, dusty pine trees and beaten paths. It is about structures, old and new, from the Dancehall to the Dining Hall. It is about the creatures that inhabit Shady Brook, from the muskrat in the lake, to the rabbits in the bush, various dogs that resided at camp over the years, painted horses and garbage-rummaging bears. It is the geography of a place: Day Mountain, the Silver Mine, a lake, canyon and the Natural Bridge. It is a place of legend and lore, too, because what camp would be a camp without a ghost story or tales of Black Bart? It is the place of a thousand campers and a place once visited, you never really leave. This is the story of Camp Shady Brook.

One night, a few weeks before Christmas, a book and Santa’s Magic Toy Bag appeared under our Christmas tree. The book explained that Santa needed the help of good little boys and girls. Santa asked the children to gather toys to give away and place them into the “magic” bag for Santa to take with him when he returned on Christmas Eve. Our children were excited to share their treasures with others and eagerly accepted Santa’s challenge! Our hope is that you will make Santa’s Magic Toy Bag a part of your family’s Christmas traditions.

street- f cover2STREET OF SECRETS is the story of a special place in a Northern city where people lived during a time when political correctness was unheard of, and severe prejudices were held about anyone different from one’s own race, nationality, and religion. With the advent of World War II and specifically with the attack on Pearl Harbor, the barriers between nationalities and religions began to disappear.

Families lived in enclaves of their own nationalities, clinging to the security of the familiar. It usually took several generations for them to venture out of their safety zone. The attack on Pearl Harbor hastened that change, giving rise to the slogan The Great Melting Pot. The story centers on children coming of age when the country was at the brink of war. It's about rebellion, secrets, and forbidden love, as they try to free themselves from their parents’ strict control. The attack on Pearl Harbor brings both sacrifice and redemption.

The drama then deals with their horrified reactions.

Finally, the song, “The Clouds Wept Tears of Rain,” is a simple minor key round which includes teaching ideas for musical accompaniment, instructions for interpretation via American Sign Language and an opportunity to unite children and adults in a simple but effective and inclusive multi-media activity or performance project.
