What is your favorite verse?

Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

This is the verse that first offered me hope when processing through all of my childhood trauma, my two abortions and all of life’s challenges that have come since. 

Proverbs 3:5  Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.

This verse has given me the freedom to not “need” to understand the why’s behind the hurts and simply trust God.

“Jesus didn’t die on the cross for us to carry around our shame and condemnation.”

Meet the Publisher

I've been around Christian publishing since 1987 when I helped our ministry self-publish an important resource for Vietnam veterans and their families. That book went on to be picked up by a royalty publisher and has since sold over 250,000 copies with a million in print.

I'm glad you're here…stop by often and take advantage of all the information we make available.
