Kiana Hamilton's book "Soul Inspiration - A Journey for the Divine" is a collection of poems written down when problems came. They kept her strong as a spiritual person.

As a matter of routine, Kiana finds a moment or two to reflect and talk to God each day, often singing poems when she talks to him. With God in her corner, she is stronger than the things that try to break her. She is filled with faith and confidence.

They want to remove the stigma that is often associated with schizophrenia and bi-polar disorder. James Lauderdale uses poetry and essays to help improve the health system in this area.

It takes courage to step out of the shadows to share your experiences and courage he has, one step at a time.
Oasis Ministry Ventures is working to Save the Oaks Camp and Retreat Center. I fell in love with the camp and conference center when I toured it over 10 years ago. I placed a picture of the conference building on my vision board in the office as the prototype for a retreat center that I would like to build. That voice in my head told me it was way too expensive, it wasn't possible. However, I've been doing dream building this past year -- and I asked myself what could I do to move forward on my dream. The answer came to me during meditation. Call the camp. I went to contact them only to discover that the camp is closed and being sold! So I did some detective work and reconnected to the people I knew there. They are in the midst of a campaign to Save the Oaks! So I jumped on board. This call is part of pulling together the people and organizations who know the value of the Camp to help get more people involved. The Oaks has a long history of providing retreat experiences for inner city youth who have never had the opportunity to do this. It has over 800 acres of land to explore on walks, zip lines, music buildings, conference center, cafeteria, child care center, and the list goes on. It has been fiscally sound, but the corporation that owned them shifted gears and wants to spin the Oaks off. We have the chance to make a difference, to get the word out and find people who are passionate about sacred spaces and the value of retreats. Join us to Save the Oaks!

The Word helps us achieve 4 things: more prayer, more time with the Word, Bible verses that you can carry around within you, and a deepening relationshp with God and with others. In "One Week at a Time", Dale focuses in depth on one verse per week, using personal stories and understanding. It is available on Kindle, in paperback and in a new walk through the pandemic.

They concoct a plan to overpopulate the Adirondacks with wolves and inject their food supply with chemicals to make them extremely aggressive. The result: Wolves who turn on everything that lives and moves in the mountains, including people. What will it take for people to figure out what is going on and then do something that will stop the mayhem before too many lives are lost? Can they do it alone or do they need all the faith they can muster?

Born in Upstate New York to an abolitionist family, Matilda Joslyn Gage was one of the three most famous suffragists in America. Yet her story is all but forgotten in the annals of time because she was considered too radical. Today many of the ideas she championed are taken for granted. Women have been voting for decades and we have much more control over our finances, however, there are still plenty of issues Matilda championed that have never been realized. And here's a little tidbit, Matilda was the inspiration for L. Frank Baum's character, Glenda the Good Witch in the Oz books. Many of her ideas are woven into the series.
Often, when we look back across our lives, we can see them laid out like a roadmap. If we notice, we can see how to connect the dots in the past.

When we had our landslide, I began a spiritual journey that resulted in my book "Rainbows Over Ruins" and a small booklet "Your Survival Guide: 12 Tips to Gain Inner Peace."

Detach from the desire for things to be different. Transcend the need for control. Let go and let God. Assume all decisions are given as learning experiences. You can find most of his books on Amazon and his website www.schooloftheofatalism.org. The book we are discussing today is "When Bad Things Happen..Finding Peace and Serenity in Theofatalism."

Cas Bieberstein stood ready to die, but not without a fight. Forced out of his home and into the Warsaw ghettos at the start of World War II, Cas Bieberstein became a resistance fighter by the age of 10. What is particularly striking is the mindset he developed in the raw world. He expected that he would die, but not without a fight. He worked building weapons and explosives for the enemy, but intentionally made most of them inoperable. He worked as a sharpshooter, was sent to concentration camps and managed to escape to the U.S. He lived his life quietly for many years, only opening up to tell of his past in his most senior years. The story came to light when two distant cousins realized their genealogical connection and began to talk. The story is documented in their book "Not Without a Fight" and an award winning documentary short. More documentaries are planned in their series, and we may see more of this story as a feature film.

A student of ancient studies and business economics, Peter lives a full outer life with his family, working as a software systems engineer and pursuing peak performance in sports, However, Peter also lives a vibrant inner life that has grown out of his ancient studies, involving yoga, monks and mysticism. He was drawn to write about the dichotomy between religion and science, idealism and materialism. As he studied, Peter kept revisiting certain themes and patterns he'd discover along the way. He observed a single thread of cosmology and myth shared among different societies who appeared to have no contact with one another. One question led to another. Why are we here? Is there something bigger than us as individuals? Is God real? Is what you experience in the pursuit of answers applicable in your own life? Why do so many people feel something is missing in life? Peter Worth believes he has found the answer. With an understanding of karma yoga, he sees the world as part mundane day to day activities, part peak meditative experiences, and a conscious choice to do the work that no one wants to do, helping others, feeding the poor. In the process, your have a greater impact on the world and have a greater sense of our interconnection with the one Uni-verse.

Dennis Bray served with the U.S. Army and Department of Defense for 37 years. Simultaneously, he was studying the end times in the Bible. To do this work, he had to study a different way of using language that is found in the Bible and its symbols. For him, it is like studying mathematics. In this case, he is showing how America fits into the Book of Revelations and other passages throughout the Bible. In 1997, he was told to write this down, that these things will happen and people need to get ready. There are eerie parallels to events happening today: people leaving big cities, a lack of security, high taxes, no representation, riots and fear. In the Woe to America chapter, people are seen being driven off the coasts to the area between the Appalachians and the Rockies. Good or bad, there will be a harvest of the vineyard. Then the positive truth of Isaiah 18 - I will rest with them. This is not meant to frighten. It demonstrates that the end is positive. You can get prepared.
