“Impacting the world with something positive and uplifting through my writing is part of my spiritual walk through life.” – Sam Rawlins

Sam Rawlins, being a retired Veteran himself, originally sought to honor all who serve in our military with their sweat, blood and tears. Coming from the turbulent 60’s Vietnam Era, he witnessed firsthand the trauma and the destructive effects of PTSD during his service as a medical specialist in Southeast Asia. His life experiences have shaped this novel as he has also witnessed the devastating destruction of living in Oklahoma and Missouri, known as “Tornado Alley.” His inspiration to write this novel was to inspire others in a positive, uplifting and life-changing way and to help others develop a deeper relationship with the Lord. In his many years of life experience (70 and still counting), he knows full well the value of hard work, believing in God, believing in your God-given destiny and encourages all to find their purpose and calling in life. As this piece became one of an emotional roller coaster for the author, revealing the many dimensions of suffering of those in our military, it is the author’s desire that other’s find God in a powerful and meaningful way. The book is a testament to the healing power of God’s tangible presence and that God’s grace is a factor to healing this illness, one that will bring lasting hope to all.

Holiness Adorns Your house, O Lord, Forever

Psalm 93:5 Your testimonies are very sure; holiness adorns Your house, O Lord, forever.   

Heaven is adorned with holiness, which means NO one who is not holy will enter Heaven. Many claim they are on their way to Heaven, but will find when they pass away, they will be turned down. 

Matthew 7:21 states, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.” Church attendance alone does not make a person holy, neither do good works. It’s not outward appearance, but an inward lifestyle that really counts. 

Obeying God’s commandments and living for Him in thought, word and deed start the process. God wants to work in and through you in a great way, but He needs a full commitment on your part. Jesus tells you, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Only Believe

Gideon - Only Believe 

About the author: RW Hahn was born and raised in Miami, Florida. He grew up in the inner-city and went to Miami Edison Sr. He graduated from Northwestern University in Radio/TV/Film with a Bachelor of Science degree. RW is an actor, director, and an award-winning screenwriter, as well.

Found by a single woman in an unused motel room, the baby boy seems to be nothing short of a miracle from the very beginning of his life. He is accompanied by a Bible, the Gideon Bible, hence his name. The inscription inside the Bible states: "It's a gift." 

Jenny relishes the role of becoming little Gideon's mother. Perhaps focusing on this little life will help her regain her own. Jenny brings Gideon to her secluded family home atop Dora Manor Mountain. She is so grateful to have received this precious child that, like barren Hannah in the Bible, she promises to dedicate Gideon to God, and reads to Gideon from the Bible day and night. She hides him, keeping him away from the townsfolk, the same people who killed her family . . . over a church.

As Gideon grows older, Jenny starts to realize just how special he is. Gideon truly believes in the word of God, and becomes Christ-like in his ability to heal through his belief.  It starts when he blesses the vegetable garden, which then produces huge, perfect fruit. Then when Scrappy the goat dies, Gideon blesses him, and the next thing Jenny knows, Scrappy is running through the yard, quite alive. 

Gideon knows he has a mission to fulfill. He needs to lead people to Jesus in order to save their souls. A gnarled hand. A blind eye. A club foot. A stutter. An unsaved man who dies and sees the gates of Hell, but Gideon brings him back so the man can live a purposeful life and go to Heaven when his time truly comes.

As word gets out, Jenny realizes people are going to want to see Gideon, and she will have to share him with the world, starting with the very people she's been shielding him from, the townsfolk. When they finally do all converge on the mountain, it is through Gideon that they realize it's time to put away their differences, their prejudices, and accept each other-whether black or white.  The story is told by a preacher who has run out of gas near a small church in the South. 

The congregation is expecting him; their late pastor told them on his deathbed that their new preacher would appear one day, having just run out of gas near the church. While the preacher has been speaking, another man has entered the church. He, too, is a pastor and he, too, has run out of gas near the church. He begins to preach, and the crowd goes wild with appreciation. This, surely, is the man they've been waiting for. Then he introduces himself: "I...killed...Gideon."

Kingdom Victory

2 Thessalonians 3:3 But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one.  

There have been times when guards became distracted or fell asleep at their post, during those times an enemy slipped by them. God, who has promised to guard you, He will never slumber, Psalm 121:3. 

The other thing He has promised is that He will establish you. Some people seem to be established in problems, and others seemed to be established in the realm of confusion. God wants to work through you so that you are established in success. Notice what David said in Psalm 1:3 “He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.” The evil one doesn’t want you to prosper, but God wants to stop him from accomplishing his goal. Praise the Lord in a greater way today, because He is going to cause you to be victorious. 

For Newly Diagnosed Cancer Patients

Title: 8 Steps to Getting Real with Cancer
By: Marianne C. McDonough
A CBM Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars

Written from a Christian perspective, Marianne C. McDonough offers readers hope through faith, prayer and trust in God, along with confidence, knowledge, strength and guidance upon hearing the diagnosis of the “C” word.

As a previous breast cancer survivor, the author writes with passion to bring newly-diagnosed cancer patients and those who love them a strong sense of empowerment to fight this invasive disease. 

With ease and candor, she presents facts about cancer, breaks down the myths surrounding cancer and ushers in truth within an 8-step guide to begin a positive path to healing and battling cancer. Intertwining her courageous fight against cancer and the ups and downs of her fight that include emotional, spiritual and physical aspects, the author encourages newly-diagnosed patients to get real with themselves and others, offering them positive wisdom for the journey ahead after a cancer diagnosis.

The 8-step guide highlights 8 initial evaluations and/or questions that patients ask themselves during this extremely stressful and difficult time such as: What do I know about cancer and believe to be true about myself as a cancer patient? How shall I interact with others, especially family members, friends and medical providers? How can I select the best treatment protocol? How do I feel about possibly dying? Where is God in all of this? What am I afraid of? How do I deal with stress? Do I dare hope for a future?

Offering real advice for real circumstances: This book is crucial during the initial diagnosis and beginning journey when one is faced with life-changing decisions that a cancer diagnosis brings.  

With an in-depth analysis of what getting real is, the author describes an introspective journey that brings strength, sensitivity, and inner clarity to patients and helps them make positive changes. Thus, readers are encouraged to access their thoughts, beliefs and feelings in regards to a life-threatening disease, considering their own mortality, their belief system while the author vehemently urges others to fight cancer with all that is within them. Offering tools, wisdom and keen guidance, this book is key to bringing healing and wholeness during the process that provides hope and lasting positive change during what can be one of the most trying times during one’s life.

A highly recommended read for newly-diagnosed cancer patients, those who love them and those who serve within the medical community or hospital settings. ~ Get your copy of 8 Steps to Getting Real with Cancer at Amazon.

Growing Up In A Communist Country

The Destination

Author Oxana Eliahu shares her incredible autobiography in her book, The Destination. With dreams of making it to America to find wealth and success, her story is captivating. Born in Leningrad, Russia (now Saint Petersburg), Oxana was a Russian born Jew. 

Confused about her identity as a Jew, Oxana at one time became a devout Communist, which was the expected norm within Russia. Growing up in a Communist country, as the reader will experience, was not a walk in the park. Some days they had to wait in long lines for hours just to get a few bananas, some berries and some decent clothes. 

In regards to the subject of religion, Oxana was brought up in a secular atmosphere where there was no talk of God in her household. Believing in evolution, her opinion was that people who trusted in God were primitive. Her only exposure to God was through old books and pictures she saw in museums. God in His sovereignty reveals His unending love for Oxana and that becomes an unforgettable journey of redemption to her God-given destiny.

Then in the 80’s Jews were beginning to be released from Russia. She found herself in Italy as a refugee, seeking a country, but no country would have her. Russia considered her a traitor and Italy would not allow her to work or gain citizenship. Her Visa to America was denied and she found herself hopelessly lost with not enough money to survive. Her story is incredible, filled with anticipation, as she describes her experiences, the persecution, her resolve through the doubt and the heartbreak to The Destination, and how she was once a Russian citizen, a Jew, now without a country or place to call “home.”

Throughout her powerful testimony, the miracles of God become evident, as she discovers Yeshua (Jesus) and begins to find faith through Him. Her story does not end there. God led Oxana to Canada, and then to Israel, and finally to America where she now shares her faith that represents a loving God to readers as He guided her into her purpose as a worship singer and songwriter.

Is America Sleeping

A must read and wake up call to America before it is too late.

Centered on one of the greatest commandments: Love thy neighbor as thyself - this book takes a look at the position of wealth in America and reminds people that wealth is not to be trusted in, but God who gives to all richly everything to enjoy. With that said, wealth is not meant to be spent on oneself, for purchasing expansive houses or luxury cars, but wealth is meant to help the poor. The author addresses the notion that the poor are somehow being punished for their sins and don’t deserve help. With a historical look at the original twelve apostles, the author brings readers back with scripture to the core values that this country has lived by, which we are quickly losing, as many Americans have forgotten God and living a holy life.

Return to Christianity by A.M. Deigloriam is a wake-up call to America, the complacent, the compromising, the slothful, and all who are disobedient to the Lord’s commands.  The book is not meant to put down anyone, but to lift up and re-focus readers on Christian values that many Americans have lost and/or take for granted.

This read is a highly recommended for those that desire to do good in their sphere of influence. With sound biblical teaching and insight, this author has compiled this book to be a reminder to Americans to return back to Christianity. Also, I would go as far to say that every Christian and member of the Body of Christ should read this book. This message is really a “word” from God - and a call to honor God, to also honor all men whom are created in the image of God, revealing an avenue for repentance. (Yes, repentance – another word Americans don’t like to think of which is rarely taught from the pulpit.) Timely in nature, this message speaks to the greed and apathy of a compromising church, as our country seems to be straying farther away from godly policy to man-made policies that are against the core values of America and against God Himself.
