Hyperreligiosity to Grace
Thomas ventures through a perplexing web of hyperreligious thoughts that ultimately lead him to a mental institution three times. In this true story, Thomas takes you on his personal journey of how his thoughts led him astray and put him in many peculiar situations. After having lost a great career, and now living out of his truck and with charitable people on occasion, he continues to deteriorate, wandering the streets, and sleeping on benches and grass or below bridges. God was not through with him and was always there, trying to reach Thomas with his still, small voice. He wanted to tell Thomas how much he loved him and the implications and finality of the work of the cross by his Son Jesus. In this book, Thomas shows how a wrong understanding of our loving Father and exalting works over faith and grace was a recipe for disaster in his life. Ultimately, Thomas came back to reality by the grace of God and lives a happy life today back in his career and on his feet again. This book is for anyone interested in a true story about extreme mental conditions. It is also for those that have dealt with puzzling issues in life, those that seem to get caught in a spinning wheel of dos and don'ts, and whosoever that wants to know that no matter what you are going through, there is a beautiful light at the end of the tunnel. Your mess can become a redeeming message. If you have dealt with depression, discouragement, confusion, and loss, know that you are not alone. Healing and restoration can be yours. Never give up. Every life has an ending untold, and the author and finisher of faith, Jesus, wants to give you the abundant life he came to die to impart to us.

A Life Worth Living
“I found the poems exquisitely phrased and very moving. If people who commit suicide only knew what pain they cause. Pat has a rare gift, and it was a privilege to read her poems.” - Teruko Craig Senior Lecturer Emerita, Tufts University “This is a moving and beautiful collection of tributes, written with great honesty, self-awareness, and profound sadness, tempered after a while with triumph. While I don’t normally read poetry, I couldn’t put this down without finishing it, as it was so engaging and moving.” - Daniel Sharp Former CEO, Professor, Deputy Attorney-General, California “A sensitive and personal memoir expressed in poetic cadences that ebb and flow with the author’s thoughts. The poet builds her life based on work and relationships, remembering but rising beyond early tragedy.” - Joan Macy Kaskell American Art Historian & Educator

The Truth About Ruth
The story of Ruth has been limited and constrained by biblical presentations and interpretations. For too many Christians, Ruth is only known for her "where you go I go" position and her capture of wealthy Boaz. She has been shaped by Christendom to be the epitome of purity that all females should emulate if they desire an honorable and wealthy man as Boaz. However, on closer examination, the steps of Ruth may not be suited for New Testament women. Was the purity of Ruth the key factor in her capture of Boaz? Or was it only a ploy by many in Christendom to ensure the purity of text. The Truth about Ruth fully examines each chapter and key verses to give needed insight lost to readers and hearers by the exclusion of critical contextual information. Eleven little-known or unexplored truths about Ruth are presented to ensure that the reader can factually determine whether Ruth's course of action is one that should be recommended for Christian females. Are the strategies used by Ruth to get her man suitable instruction to girl scouts, teens, and females in general? If not, why not? Is it possible that the ways of Ruth were simply the ways of women in general, with no connection to the attributes that promote purity and holiness? Could it be that the story of Ruth is more appropriate for instruction in how not to get a man rather than the prevailing opposite? Bringing no preconceived ideas to the text, readers will be able to release antiquated dating ideas and embrace the readily applicable truths about Ruth that are appropriate for Christian dating and release those that are antithetical to promoting meaningful relationships that are bound in Christian love and respect for each other.

Souls from Mercury: Chakra Magic Empowering Relationships
Charles Darwin pointed out that the future evolution of mankind cannot happen through the continuation of the "survival of fittest" ideology. It lies in the courage to stand up like the first animal did and move in a vertical dimension, whereas developing kindness, compassion, and empathy are the hallmark of evolution and truly an inward revolution. This goal can be achieved by delving deeper into ourselves through the simple process of meditation and mindfulness. In this book you will learn the pathway to your inner vastness (i.e., Samadhi, Enlightenment or the "Mercury space") and gain answers to becoming "Souls From Mercury."

Faith, Supernatural Beliefs and Our Symbolic Brain
We have been endowed with a symbolic brain that helps us adapt to and survive in our natural and man-made worlds. However it is open to both true and false beliefs both of which have impacts on our well-being. Supernatural beliefs may lead to disastrous consequences but continue to exist because they actually serve human survival through their reliance on faith and reduction of stress. So our symbolic brain's readiness for supernatural beliefs is a mixed blessing-but a blessing nevertheless.

The Only Authentic Book of Persuasion: The Agenda-Spin Method 7th Edition
Featured Author | CBS Radio Advertising | Richard E. Vatz | The Only Authentic Book of Persuasion The Only Authentic of Persuasion: the Agenda-Spin Model (Authors Press, 2022 ) Man and woman are the persuading animals. There is no overriding issue more important in most people's daily life, life's pleasures and all of political matters than persuasion. Many, if not most, matters are largely wholly related to persuasion, defined in this work on the Agenda-Spin theory, as the struggle of people to determine for their chosen audiences: 1. What we talk about and 2. What it means. Persuasion is not the only determinant in life, and there are some matters mostly outside of persuasive control, such as congenital illness, physical attacks, weather, death, etc. Even these, however, will have elements of choice and certainly vary in spin and/or interpretation. This work, unlike virtually every other work on this topic, examines persuasion as within the power of the persuader, not as the result of inexorable demands of reality, except in the cases listed above.

Imagine a visit from a friend of yours that has already died but received approval to return to earth from Heaven for one more day. Mollie envisioned that situation in the middle of the night when an angel appeared before her as a bright light and explained an amazing scenario in which her deceased fiancé returns from Heaven on Christmas Day in order to complete her marriage and accept the consequences. Mollie then awoke from her dream, doubtful of what just happened. Even though she could still see the bright light and the image of the angel, she was sure it was all just a dream. So, she turned on the light next to her bed and only the bright image remained as if she was staring at the sun. As her eyes adjusted, she looked at the table next to her bed and saw the picture of her fiancé in a frame in the usual place. However, this time there was an object that was never there before. It was a gold band. So, she picked it up to examine and inside the band she noticed her three initials and the words Love, Mollie. It was the band she placed on the ring finger of her deceased fiancé before he was buried. Could it be true? Would he return on Christmas? Four others would return from Heaven on that very same Christmas. Based upon the miracles performed on that day, the earth will never be the same. Heaven is real.
