Status Update 

Dear faithful readers,

I apologize for being quiet lately. I was working on my collaborative book (my part of it and also keeping in contact with my co-author). And the other night my screen somehow got cracked on my laptop and I have no idea how. And tonight it wouldn’t load my desktop view but went to a white screen with the crack marks still visible, but now white with the rest of the screen instead of normal screen with black screen cracks. Book sales are not going well and I can’t work so I don’t know what to do about my laptop if it turns out warranty has expired.

Anyhow that’s what has been going on with me. My book sale is meant to end tomorrow  (October 10th), but until my laptop refused to work tonight, I had thoughts about possibly bringing out another edition, with same stuff but a bit more…like stuff about bullying, and anything else God would have me add to it. And if I were to do that, it’d make more sense to leave my current ebook edition as is with current reduced price added just make the 2nd edition $3.99 instead. But we will see… 

I need my laptop to write!! I tried writing info to add to my collaborative book here on my phone and it is very frustrating.

On a slightly brighter note, I am thankful for the church congregation I moved to earlier this year. They are kind, most are really compassionate, and they have helped me help my friend. My fundraiser got nothing because no one online wanted to help, but the members of my church gave what they were able to! I am so thankful to God and to everyone who gave and to the woman who helped me with collections.

I will still be doing # HurricaneRelief for #Texas, #Florida, and depending on book sales possibly other places effected by hurricanes, flooding, tornadoes, or fires. So far, only 3 sales and a few pages of my ebook read for free on #KindleUnlimited so only $2.50 to give so far…if people open their hearts and minds to learn more about Jesus and God and God’s loving nature and decide to get my books and read it, then they will also be helping me better help with hurricane relief. 

I don’t pretend to know everything about God or Jesus or Scripture, but I did share what I’ve learned so far with everyone in the book with my experiences I turned into advice with Scripture that goes with the subject or topic. And for those who do know Jesus but need hope to get through difficult times and/or stronger faith, depending how long your own walk has been with Jesus, my book could help, possibly. My writing style is kind of free style but I’ve seen other authors use the same or similar writing style and they are doing well so I’m hoping people can focus on the messages and advice the Holy Spirit helped me write with God’s Word (Scripture) and find something in my book that is helpful to them, even if just the knowledge that they are not alone in their struggles, and that Jesus does love them unconditionally.

Have a blessed week all! 

May the LORD bless you and protect you. May the LORD smile on you and be gracious to you. May the LORD show you His favor and give you His peace.Numbers 6:24-26.

Reasons to Get My Book (I talk about Hurricane Relief too)

Dear faithful readers,

despite what haters think, I am not begging anyone to get my book. Nor am I being calculating or insincere! I truly care! I did however, think of something inspiring and awesome to do and want to share with you! If you are able to purchase my book in either of the 2 formats it is available in (eBook on Kindle or paperback), I will be able to better help people in need like with Hurricane Relief! Watch and listen what I have to say please!

Reasons to get my book

As mentioned in my video, those affected by hurricanes, tornadoes, fires, flooding, or any natural disasters I am continuing to pray for you and will not cease from praying until God has restored what’s been lost, healed those who lost loved ones, and everyone is safe! If you need me to pray personally for you, please do not hesitate to ask me and I will gladly do it! Jesus loves you! Let’s draw closer to Jesus and help one another rebuild lives that were taken or destroyed (homes, cars, jobs, etc.) ! Together we can make a difference!!!!

Proverbs 11:25 says that “The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.”

And let’s remember Matthew 18:19-20‘s promise that “where two or more agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you. For where two or three gather as my followers, I am there among them.

Dear Heavenly Father,

I come before You in the name in Jesus asking You to open the hearts and minds of everyone so that they are open to learning the truth contained in Your Word, and also are willing to help others in need during this difficult time after all the Hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, fires, and floods that have taken lives and destroyed others’ ways of living (homes, jobs, transportation, etc.). For those who are in need, may You intervene personally in each of their lives and restore double what was taken from them (Zechariah 9:12), heal and comfort those who lost loved ones, find those who were lost in Hurricane Irma or any of the other natural disasters, and draw us all closer to You in love and truth. In Jesus’ name! Amen

In a previous post I did a couple of weeks ago, I provided a link that had a list of all countries my eBook is available in, and in a separate post I have links for all countries where my paperback is currently available! If you need these links again let me know please, if you cannot find them!

God bless to everyone who will help me contribute to those in need from natural disaster/Hurricane relief and to everyone who is praying for those in need! And if you are in need, may God bless you to get the help you need!

I am being completely sincere! I cannot work because of disability, so I can’t really help much right now. But with royalties that come to me through sales of my book, I will be able to help more than I can now, and you will be helping too! I am sure there are those of you who have already made donations directly either to Red Cross or family members or friends who have fundraisers to help them get back on their feet, and that is awesome! What I am asking is for you to help me be able to help too because I want to do more and am currently limited in what I can do! It hurts my heart that I can’t do more! Can we please help one another?! I care about everyone, including everyone affected by the Hurricanes and other natural disasters/fires and stuff! I care about all of you and whether or not your soul is/gets saved and you make it to Heaven! Help me spread my love, and let’s all spread our love, to others and to one another! God bless!

Dear faithful readers,

I did another reading from my book How to Live a Godly Life: Things I Learned in my Walk with the LORD. This time I picked 2 paragraphs from 2 separate pages from my book to make the reading a bit longer. I apologize in advance for how low my voice is in the video. I listened to it and you can hear me, so I hope no one has trouble hearing me as they watch! Everyone had just gone to bed when I did this video reading an hour ago.  2 Scriptures I quote in my reading tonight are from Psalms 103:8 (1st paragraph I read) and Isaiah 26:3 (2nd paragraph I read from).

God is not angry with you! He loves you, unconditionally! And He wants to protect you and give you peace!

Off Topic…

I am relieved that Hurricane Irma is almost gone now, and will continue praying for Florida, Georgia, The Carolinas (North and South), and everyone else affected! I am also continuing prayers for Texas and Louisiana and everyone else affected by Hurricane Harvey.  I will not stop praying until all hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, flooding, and fires are gone and the people affected do not need prayers anymore.

Come back to the place of safety, all you prisoners who still have hope. I promise this very day that I will repay two blessings for each of your troubles.Zechariah 9:12

Dear Faithful Readers,

I was inspired by someone else to read aloud from my book! I picked a paragraph about God’s and Jesus’ love for everyone! This could be the first of a few more if people actually want more and let me know by viewing this video and either liking or commenting or both! I want the whole world to know God and Jesus exist/are real, love them/everyone, feel encouraged and grow stronger in their faith!!!!!! If you need any of these things then I recommend reading my book, and read it with your Holy Bible or bible.com /Bible app via YouVersion for cellphones, iPads and other Tablets!

Short Reading from How to Live a Godly Life: Things I Learned in my Walk with the LORD

I quoted Jeremiah 31:3 and a couple of other verses about God’s and Jesus’ love! God bless and may His peace be with you!

P.S. Is there anyone who wants to read my book, but cannot afford it right now because money is tight? Money is super tight for me, but I can afford to give 1 person a free eBook version of my book to read on their Kindle if they give me their email address to send it to them as a gift! If you do, 1st person that sends me their email address (I think there is the option to email me here, isn’t there?) in response to this will get the free copy!

P.P.S I am still praying for everyone being affected, or who was, by any hurricanes or natural disasters (including tornadoes and earthquakes), flooding, and/or fires. My faithful readers are included if any live in any states or countries affected by any of these things! I also pray for all of my readers constantly thanking God for you and praying for your well-being, peace, and other stuff you may stand in need of!

Update on Paperback_Thanks_Question

Please let me know if you have trouble with the link! Thanks!

Also, please leave your answer to my question in the comments section! Thank you, and again thank you for your patience, my faithful readers! Especially patience for my paperback version of my book!

Also…

I will let you know when it is available to buy again. I discovered when my first 4 books I ordered arrived in the mail yesterday, that my book has no page numbers! I made corrections and just waiting for it to be processed! I do not know how it happened, but it has been corrected, and hopefully I will see that after processing has been finished so I can approve the update and make the paperback available again! God bless and have a good weekend!

Prayers for Texas please! My friend lives in #Rockport and she and her kids are safe in San Antonio, and other family in Tx of hers are safe, but 2 have not been able to make contact with them so please pray they are safe and that everyone in #Rockport and all of Texas (I heard the  Hurricane, now at Category 4, is moving on to Houston soon) have safe places to stay now and have a safe place to return to after, or safe place to keep staying until they have a home of their own to go to, provided by God (and that God provide what the Hurricane has taken away). May God honor His Zechariah 9:12 promise (to give back twice the blessings for each trouble/problem)! Amen!

 

Another Book Update (Sorry for any Inconvenience)

Dear readers,

For those of you who either purchased my book on Kindle or are reading it on Kindle Unlimited or through KOLL, please go to “Manage Your Content and Devices” on Amazon and under Devices scroll down to “Your Book Updates” and check and see if “automatic updates” is turned ON. If not, please turn it on to receive an update I did around 5-5:30AM this morning that I believe has been posted to Amazon. That way you will have the latest version of my book.

For anyone wanting my paperback version, you will need to wait until my review on create space has been finalized and then proofed by me and approved to upload onto the 2-3 site addresses I gave yesterday for createspace and Amazon.

Sorry for any inconvenience! To err is human, to forgive is Divine. So please forgive me, as I am a first-time author and have limited funds so I had no one to help me with the editing of my book. But I made sure I looked more closely this time and I definitely got the 2 remaining spelling errors, and a possible place of confusion (since it was for me when I read it this morning) corrected too. If you have any questions about this, please let me know! Thank you for being patient and understanding! God bless!

Ask and You Shall Receive! (Update)

Jesus promises us in Matthew 7:7-8 Ask, and you shall receive.” I am paraphrasing, but is essentially what He is promising us.

People have been asking me (especially those I tell about my book in person/via word of mouth) if my book is available in paperback, and looked disappointed when I said no. Well last night (Friday night) I worked long and hard to get a paperback version going via createspace. I woke up this afternoon (Saturday) to an email from them telling me I had been approved and just needed to proof everything to make sure I am happy with the way they put my book together. I proofread it thoroughly and was satisfied so I approved it. Now it’s for sale on the createspace website here:

https://www.createspace.com/7483987

Or available via Amazon here:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/197561158

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1975611586/

For Canada and the rest of the European countries on Amazon (like France and Italy), it is not yet available but I will keep anyone interested posted.

Thank you again, my faithful readers, for getting me to where I am today (published first via Kindle Direct Publish in eBook, and now in paperback via createspace.com). It was God first and foremost who helped, but it was also you, my faithful readers who have read what I have been posting about (usually advice with Scripture backup) since I first started writing on here 4 summers ago!  God bless to all of you, whether you’ve been with me from the beginning, a year, a week, or a day!

I was so excited I purchased 4 copies! Problem is, I could barely afford those 4 and so I have no idea who I will end up sending them to in my family or circle of friends! But oh well, surely God will let me know who each book will go to and will let me know in His time. I am sure they will be people that want to read it, and possibly need to. That is all I can ask… that my book continues to reach people who want/need to know the Truth about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and Scripture and/or who need hope and anchor for their faith for difficult times. I want what God wants: for everyone to be saved! (2 Peter 3:9) And God promises in Isaiah 55:11 that His word bears fruit wherever He sends it. God’s Holy Spirit helped me write the book, so God was speaking through me in my writing. Since that is the case, surely God will send His own Word out where it needs to go, and it will bear fruit (the right people will find my book and read it with their Bible, or access to Scripture online or via a Bible app). I have the link to bible.com in my book, so for the eBook version, readers can just click on it. For the paperback, they can just enter the web site address into their browser to read Scripture as they read my book. Or for those who have Bibles, hopefully they read them both (my book + Holy Bible) together!
