Tod Salts’s newly released “It Is Well With My Soul” is an inspiring devotional that delves into the saving love of Jesus Christ that brings grace to all humankind


News Image

“It Is Well With My Soul: Ninety Days of Reflection”: a heartwarming devotional that imparts the good news of salvation fulfilled in the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. “It Is Well With My Soul: Ninety Days of Reflection” is the creation of published author Tod Salts, founder and senior pastor of Salt with a Mission.

Salts shares, “My purpose for writing this book was to show as many people as possible what a real biblical worldview looks like. In my search for the truth I kept coming back to 2 Corinthians 5:15: ‘He died for all, that they who live should no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf.’ Friends, Jesus loves you and all he asks from you, all He asks from any of us, is that we would Love Him back.

“We demonstrate our love for Jesus when we give Him control of our life. Jesus said in John 14:15, ‘If you love me you will keep my commandments.’

“We know we are on the right path when we seek to live according God’s Word.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Tod Salts’s new book inspires worship and praise to the Lord for His bountiful graciousness that continually saves the people from sin and death.

Believers are duly enlightened with resounding scripture references that reinforce the promise of eternal life by God in which people of faith can openly partake in their lives.

Emmanuel Owusu Writes New Book “Rising Above Negative Emotions”


Holy Fire Publishing (http://www.holyfirepublishing.com) releases Rising Above Negative Emotions (Paperback, U.S. $10.99, ISBN: 978-1-60383-589-3). Emmanuel Owusu’s book guides readers to discover the benefits of positive confession and how it builds our emotions strongly to move forward.

Emmanuel Owusu wrote this powerful book to offer great assistance to individuals and society, as a whole, to work hard on the emotional integrity and to liberate people who are suffering severely on emotional distress. Confession is the powerful medicine which vomits out sorrows, pains, frustrations, worries, and many other emotional side effects from the bottom of our hearts (Page 19). Any feeling that can stand up to the light of truth and can be sustained over time has emotional integrity and is therefore worthy of your mind and heart (Dr. John C. Maxwell). In Proverbs 25:28 NKJV, it says: “Whoever has no rule over his own spirit is like a city broken down, without walls.” We are living in the world; everyone desires to increase in every area of his or her life; everyone wants to be multiplied and be promoted in our lives as a whole and these lie on our emotions. Our emotions have very strong influence in the areas of our calling, marriages, educations, professions, ministries, and faith. Readers will not regret to reading such a wonderful and a practical vivid book which can shape their lives as they are taking right and master keys to their homes to build positive emotions.

Emmanuel Owusu was born 14th April, 1987 and, at this time, is single. He obtained his Diploma in Theology, April 30, 2011 from Faith Sanctuary Bible Institute. He also graduated with his HND in Accountancy, August 31, 2012 from Kumasi Polytechnic. Emmanuel was a teacher from 2007-2012 at St. Anthony Preparatory/ JHS Bremang, Kumasi. More recently he was an Accountant from2012-2015 at Dadmum Pharmacy Co. Ltd Kronum, Kumasi.

Walking In The Fire, A Love Story is a story about a small-town couple, Denny and Susan, who fell in love and lived life together for over fifty years. It is a story that covers the good times, bad times, and ordinary days that will sometimes seem idyllic. Their life together begins in the early sixties and continues into today.

It is also a love story of the relationship between Susan, who came to know the Savior at the age of twelve and of the Savior who has cared for her, encouraged her, carried her, and loved her. Susan’s relationship with the Lord particularly grew in strength during life’s “trials of fire,” where He walked with her and she was not consumed.

Susan Erhard has been writing since she was a young girl. She has a degree in nursing but spent most of her life owning and running her own antique, gift, and décor stores. She has served in the administration of local women clubs in all positions while becoming a speaker in that arena and continues to teach Bible studies as opportunities arise. She was married to her high school sweetheart for fifty years and is the mother of four children and has eleven grandchildren.

Bible Study Explains God’s Word to Help Readers Understand Salvation and God’s Character


News Image

Jesus has completely changed Hannah’s life; the change was so drastic in her and she wants people to know that Jesus can change their lives, too.

Hannah Hildebrandt’s book, Jesus Christ Is the Son of God and Our Lord and Savior God Is Our Father – Jesus Is the Lamb of God Who Takes Away the Sin of the World. Jesus Is King. Volume One ($16.99, paperback, 9781498480000; $26.99, hardcover, 9781498480017), is available for purchase.

Author Hannah Hildebrandt grew up knowing and loving God and Jesus, but when certain trials came up in her life, she turned away from the Lord. She became homeless and suffered from addictions. She suffered with the guilt and pain from her past and panic attacks, so she sought the Lord. When she cried out to the Lord in her pain, He answered her prayers. Jesus has completely changed Hannah’s life; the change was so drastic in her and she wants people to know that Jesus can change their lives, too.

This Scripture book has Scripture arranged in an orderly sequence to explain the prophecies, and birth of Jesus, the death and resurrection, ascension, and enthronement of Jesus at the right hand of God. God has given us a free gift of eternal life through believing in His Son Jesus. We are so blessed to have such an amazing loving Savior who we can come to know personally as a loving merciful King, brother, friend, provider, healer, helper, and strong tower. Readers will understand they can personally know God as a loving Father.

Hannah Hildebrandt prayed and asked for the words to tell people who don’t know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. The Lord has produced this Scripture book through her, and she is confident that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God (1 Peter 1:20-21).

Life Lessons from My Father” is a profound source of life lessons from a father’s unconditional love


News Image

“Our FatherS Who Art in Heaven: Life Lessons from My Father”: a beautiful companion that will equip one with important lessons guiding them throughout a purpose-filled life. “Our FatherS Who Art in Heaven: Life Lessons from My Father” is a creation of published author and pastor, Rodric K. Reid. He is the founder of Uplift Ministries Incorporated and the Senior Pastor of Mt. Vernon African Methodist Episcopal Church in Columbus Ohio.

Reid shares, “Nothing can replace the influence that a father has in the life of his child. A daughter looks to her father as a measure to gauge the man she will ultimately offer herself as a life-mate in matrimony. A son looks to his father as a role model to whom he one day will become.

“God has given us the ideal blueprint of a father through His word and His daily interactions with we, His children. Our heavenly Father begins His relationship by assuring each of us that He loved us so much that He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus. It is through His relationship with Jesus that a good father begins to mirror his relationship with his children. Certainly, mine did!

“I was completely blessed to have a loving earthly father who, unbeknownst to me, was ushering me into eternal relationship with our heavenly Father. But on April of 2007, my entire life changed when my best friend, my mentor, my pastor, my father died.

“Our Father Who Art in Heaven is a collection of life lessons that I learned from my earthly father and the biblical revelations our heavenly Father has given to help better understand those life lessons.

“Every day, God is speaking to us through His word to teach, lead, and prepare us for all of the trials life brings. Whether your father is still present in the flesh or sainted with the Lord, this book will reveal the plan of unconditional love of both an earthly and a heavenly father that has been prepared for you.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Rodric K. Reid’s new book is a potent revelation of a father and the Father’s absolute love for His children. Through these lessons, one will be able to fulfill a meaningful life amidst endless challenges.

E. Paul Yarbro’s newly released “Forged in the Fires” is a gripping chronicle of an overwhelming faith in God during a time of settlement and war


News Image

“Forged in the Fires: How Providence, Purpose, and Perseverance Shaped America”: a powerful account of six stories that reflect on the essence of true unwavering faith in God in an era of nation-building and struggle for stability. “Forged in the Fires: How Providence, Purpose, and Perseverance Shaped America” is the creation of published author E. Paul Yarbro, a writer and historian with over fifteen years of research on the historical records, diaries, correspondence, and eyewitness accounts of the early Americans.

Yarbro shares, “Individuals are not born to greatness, but through failure and defeat, they are prepared for it. Our struggles seem to define us more than our triumphs, and our character determines which path we choose.

“What road would General George Washington take when offered absolute power? Would Captain John Smith accept his common birth as a limitation of his own achievements? Would Abraham Lincoln demand vengeance on the South after his victory in the Civil War? What beliefs would guide their decisions, and what life experiences shaped their character?

“Nations as well are not born to greatness and must earn their places in history. Their trials can destroy them or make them even stronger. America was conceived in adversity and achieved greatness through the actions of its people in its darkest moments.

“Six stories chronicle the lives of the people who guided a nation to greatness by relying on the Christian principles of providence, divine purpose, and perseverance. God would direct their paths to victory over the dark times. From the first settlements of Jamestown and Plymouth to the Civil War, we discover that greatness rarely comes from success, but often rises out of defeat. In our weakness, we are made strong.

“Through the fires of struggle, individuals forged a nation into ‘a shining city on a hill.’ These fires would light the way through the dark for future generations of Americans across the world to see.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, E. Paul Yarbro’s new book testifies to the majesty of God that paves a path to greatness and victory during moments of toil and despair.

A historical masterpiece, “Forged in the Fires: How Providence, Purpose, and Perseverance Shaped America” depicts the lives of individuals whose faith in the Lord has allowed them to triumph and prosper in an age of rampant conflict and revolution.
