Messiah to the Messed Up, Shamed, and Shunned

Messiah to the Messed Up, Shamed, and Shunned

Sue Ciullo

Spend some time with Jesus and something profound is bound to happen to your heart. Messiah to the Messed Up interlaces rich Scripture narratives with twenty-first century stories. These threads, woven together, create an unforgettable tapestry of the life of Jesus, an image so real that you will feel His presence.

Watch Jesus arrive, parched and sweaty, and converse with a social outcast.
Witness Him dine with people that others shunned.
Wonder at His mercy when He spares an adulteress from execution.
See how Jesus is every bit as present today as He was 2000 years ago.
Watch Him love a teenaged girl who gets drunk on strawberry wine.
Witness His grace in a homeless man who offers an extravagant gift.
Wonder at His mercy as a veteran takes his last breath.

These stories snippets of time with Jesus will change your perspective on the Carpenter from Galilee. Why is that important? Because I m a mess, you re a mess, and we need a Messiah.

The Vintage Wren: Week 5

Chautona Havig

The Vintage Wren is a serial novel released in several chapter episodes.

Cassie Wren. Legal assistant. Convenience queen. Thrifter extraordinaire. If there was a “green police” she’d be a fugitive from eco-friendly justice.

But when a friend’s teasing feels like a challenge, Cassie accepts it. The result? One year. Twelve months. Fifty-two weeks. Three hundred sixty-five days–of green.

It seemed simple enough. Cut back on paper plates, plastic forks, and straws. Easy peasy. But when her competitive side wars against her desire for convenience, Cassie finds it’s not so easy to be “eco-friendly” and “Cassie-friendly.”

Week 5 Cassie’s plans for week five just don’t hold water, so she puts out a call to her growing readership, begging for input. The consensus? Preparedness.

Cassie also takes green to a whole new level on another trip to HearthLand. Ralph and Annie are teasing her. Can you blame them?

Think keeps her on her toes while he ponders the deeper things in life. Cassie protests his silent treatments and thanks him for his wise discretion.

Meanwhile, her friends rally around Cassie as one of her commenters grows more and more vicious. What’s up with “HermionesTwin”, and why is she so antagonistic against Cassie?

But when a friendly fellow at the FreshMart chats with Cassie, boyfriend Joel isn’t exactly thrilled. Is their relationship doomed before it has a chance to begin?

The Vintage Wren. A serial novel released in fifty-two episodes (for obvious reasons).

An Accidental Life: A Novel

An Accidental Life: A Novel

Pamela Binnings Ewen

In a 1982 New Orleans courtroom the best kept secret in the world is about to unravel, and a young couple’s jet set lives are about to change. Senior district attorney Peter Jacobs is facing the trial of a lifetime, a passionate, spiritual battle against an evil with far reaching consequences. His beloved wife Rebecca, a glamorous and driven partner at a major law firm, suddenly finds her life spun out of control and her new faith tested while facing a once in a lifetime choice.

New from lawyer-turned-novelist Pamela binnings Ewen, An Accidental Life is fiction based on fact: the testimony of registered nurse Jill Stanek before a U.S. Congressional Committee confirming that it was routine for doctors in Chicago’s Christ Hospital to have nurses take infants born alive during abortions down to a “soiled utility room” and leave them to die.

Stanek’s testimony led Congress to enact the Born Alive Infant Protection Act of 2001, a federal-only law that still does not bind state run hospitals or private clinics. The fact remains that what happens to abortion survivors is one of the best kept secrets in the world.
