GUEST AUTHOR WITH GLENN


HERE THE INTERVIEW

When did you begin to write? 

I started writing in prison on an 11-year sentence for drug charges in California.

When did you first discover that you were a writer? 

After I read a book a day for a couple of years, the idea hit me that I should start writing.

How much did you write before you were published? 

I wrote for seven years on my first novel, Roll Call, and published it when I got released from prison. Here’s the first couple lines of a review from Kirkus Discoveries Nielson Media~ “A harrowing, down-and-dirty depiction--sometimes reminiscent of Steven Soderbergh's Traffic--of America's war on drugs, by former dealer and California artist Langohr. Locked up for a decade on drugs charges and immersed in both philosophical tomes and modern pulp thrillers, Langohr penned Roll Call. A vivid, clamorous account of the war on drugs.”

My next book, Upon Release is the sequel to Roll Call. My wife’s father is a prolific writer from American Media and he reviewed both books and told me to focus on the prison scenes. So I wrote a series called ( Prison Killers ), which follows in this order: Race Riot, Lock Up Diaries, Gladiator, Underdog,  and then Prison Riot. Underdog is my top rated story so far and is about the hunger strike the inmates started at Pelican Bay prison in response to solitary confinement. I have been on the radio and spoke at Universities about it.

What is your favorite part of writing?

BLESSED AND HAPPY EASTER


Blessed and happy Easter Brothers and Sisters In Christ. He has risen Alleluia.

IN CONJUNCTION TO THIS GRAND DAY, READ WHAT THIS COUPLE HAVE DONE.
 
 
A German couple decorates their garden tree with 10,000 painted eggs. Easter comes but once a year, but one couple have turned it into a lifetime project.

German retirees Volker and Christa Kraft have decorated the tree in their back garden in Saalfeld for Easter for more than 40 years.

The tree now drips with more than 9,800 colourful Easter eggs, painted with pastoral scenes and religious icons.

Volker Kraft adds to the 9,800 Easter eggs hanging from the tree in the garden of the home he shares with his wife Christa.

Each egg must be painstakingly emptied of yolk and whites to ensure it will not go bad before they can be hand-painted and hung out for all to see.

People can do the most amazing things!

BOOK REVIEW ON HARRISON - GOES CAMPING




This children book is a very thoughtful book - simple, easily understandable from daily life stories, yet associated with powerful and valuable messages. This book is great in the sense that it will soothe and touch the readers' hearts and souls.

Her gift of writing talents together with her well crafted skills cleverly and creatively combined,  allowed her to convey God’s message in a much more powerful and impactful  way. Her messages used the simple line daily stories such as camping so freely, naturally and effectively. Her story is full of expressions and emotion through simple daily conversation yet it did not stop her to spread across good moral values and love. Amazingly well done, I must say. Through this simple story of hers, the readers enjoy a care free reading like a pleasant breeze blowing towards the reader. In fact, it is a light reading book clearly and well illustrated by respective drawings to enhance the readers’ understanding and appealing interest especially for those children who do not like reading. Smartly inserted are the respective relevant verses of the Scripture at the bottom of the page is also worthy of praise. Hence, her skillful and thoughtful craft of her writing coupled with lovely pictures will make her book shines, appealing and attractive amongst children. This will further raise their curiosity, thirst and desire to find much more in a fun manner.

Many of us have our own gifts and never use them to teach our younger generation by sharing our knowledge and stories.  Becky Howard is definitely not that person. She believes in simplicity and was focus through her writing. If the reviews she’s received thus-far are any indication, the world needed it. She uses her talents to reach and teach others.

I received a review copy of the book for the purpose of writing a fair and honest review and no other compensation.

Harrison – Goes Camping though is a children book which provides us with more than one dimension. This is because it can help us  view things not only in the physical sense, but also its related God wisdom as the author has prescribed through her daily conversation with her loved ones. It serves wide and diverse needs especially for those who want their children to be exposed and learn the highest, positive and broader perspective on life from a young age.

This book makes the children  gain more exposure in Christian values. It may give them a good, solid and sound understanding of the great works of the Mighty Loving God.

What I enjoyed most about this book is its fascinating way of conveying  Christian values through our daily conversation in the family. It reflects the beauty of spreading the little seed in children hearts. That’s what makes this book truly worth reading.

As you read through the book, you’ll be able to visualise the exciting camping event and surroundings the author has to go through. This book is not meant to persuade or dissuade you – it’s meant to inform, ingrain and teach the readers in gaining the appropriate perspectives in our daily life.

This book is highly recommended for reading; it is also suitable as a gift to children or to be used as children home study subject.

The Title of the book is Simple and Precise and to the point.

Harrison – Goes Camping is definitely a noble goal, because it teach children of the value of Christianity and prospers you to see things from their positive and appropriate perspective, from God’s perspective through our daily Life. You may grab its wisdom from each and every event happens through the camping journey. I must say that the reward of its wisdom is far more than your time, energy and money spent. Marvelous! In short, you will be empowered by its wisdom with this simple yet powerful event. Early exposure through consistent and persistent application by living it in your life is the surest way to ensure that you shine through your life. The author, Becky Howard, can certainly attest of this truth.

This book is also ideal for anyone who feels you had been living life without much meaning and is looking for inspiration to go off on his own, and dislike heavy reading.

Last, but not least, this book would make a lovely and meaningful Christmas present.

All I can say is thank you!

PRAYER FOR THE SICK


All praise and glory are yours, Lord our God. 

For you have called us to serve you and one another in love. Bless our sick today so that they may bear their illness in union with Jesus' sufferings and restore them quickly to health. Bless those who have grown old in your service and give them courage and strength in their faith. Lead us all to eternal glory. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.

Amen.
Mother of Perpetual Help pray for us.
Three Hail Marys.


Behold me, my beloved Jesus,
weighed down under the burden of my trials and sufferings,
I cast myself at Your feet,
that You may renew my strength and my courage,
while I rest here in Your Presence.
Permit me to lay down my cross in Your Sacred Heart,
for only Your infinite goodness can sustain me;
only Your love can help me bear my cross;
only Your powerful hand can lighten its weight.
O Divine King, Jesus,
whose heart is so compassionate to the afflicted,
I wish to live in You;
suffer and die in You.
During my life be to me my model and my support;
At the hour of my death,
be my hope and my refuge.
Amen.

GUEST POST BY LORILYN ROBERTS


Guest Post by Lorilyn Roberts

From Seventh Dimension – The Door, a Young Adult Christian Fantasy

“What About Me, God”


 “Why would the king want to heal him?” My life hadn’t changed. What about me? A voice spoke to me, “Don’t let others steal your joy. Don’t be jealous of others or concerned about not receiving their blessing. Think about the good things the king has given you.” – Shale Snyder, Seventh Dimension – The Door.

No one else just like you has ever lived – and today there are close to seven billion people on the planet. If you were the only person God created and you turned your back on Him, God would have sent Jesus Christ to die for you. He made you just the way you are. You have gifts that no one else has. These gifts were not given to you to make you great or famous. There were given to you for one purpose: To glorify God.

Instead of thinking about what someone else has, think about what God has given you—and how you can use your life for His glory, not yours.

Someday all these things that seem so wonderful will come to an end. There won’t be a Hollywood in heaven, but there will be life. There will be memories. There will be feelings. There will be blessings. There will be love.

Remember:  God doesn’t create junk—He creates beauty. Sometimes the good things God gives us are hidden underneath our sinful passions. Do you know who you are in Christ? Have you forgotten something God did for you? Have you taken your eyes off of Jesus Christ?

As long as you have a beating heart, you have time to change directions. Don’t delay. Today 150,000 people will die. You only have this moment, this second. Act now, and remember, as Shale did in the Seventh Dimension – The Door:  “Could the king’s words penetrate my hardened heart? What joy would fill me if I surrendered everything to the king?”

From March 1 through March 16, the John 3:16 Marketing Network is sponsoring Lorilyn Roberts’ book launch of Seventh Dimension – The Door, a finalist in the 2012 Grace Awards.

FAITH

Faith is the steady friend that guides our 

footsteps when disappointment and tears blur 

our vision - the ever present flow of life that 

carries us exactly where we need to go even 

when we cannot see the path. And then one 

day we discover that we are right where we 

always wanted to be. Have faith.
