The week before Jerry’s heart attack on December 28, this thought, “If He brings you to it, He will bring you through it” was brought to mind. It was not until after a week in the hospital, and recovering at home, that it surfaced again. Not only through that trauma, but also with God’s continual presence in these last five months, this truth is evident ~ If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
Before and during Jerry’s hospital stay, the Lord was bringing me to see how we could publish four of my books. At first, we planned to do eBooks, but since beginning this project, we are doing these in print also. The Lord has led me through the process of drafting these books for publication as soon as we have finished building our website.
Father and Family Books ~ Proclaiming the Legacy of God’s Kingdom will be a station from which we will share what He has been giving me for the past twenty-five years. This legacy is meant for all of His family, and through His leading, we will share what He continues to teach me.
It is a joy, at the age of 77, to still be learning ~ in my second childhood, so to speak. And concerning God and His kingdom, we will be learning through eternity.
Even though sequestered, as Jerry’s caregiver, there is nothing to prevent the reality of Jesus’ last words to His disciples before He ascended back to the Father. In Acts 1:8, He said, “You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
At first, we had thought to share these at no cost, but now we understand that we are to offer these at a reasonable price, and designate the profit for missions. This will establish a community of God’s people to be a part of this venture for His kingdom. The first eBook is free; from our website. FIRST THINGS That Last FOREVER is to share what we are about and to encourage those who are disciples of Christ to know the unsearchable riches that we have in Him. A second book TWO FULL PLATES ~ Learning to be a Caregiver is free when you subscribe to our monthly newsletter.
In the next few weeks, we will post information about our progress. In the meantime, we will share something about the four books that will be published. (Update on September 6, published these five books on August 2. Now available.)
If you are on Facebook you can find Father and Family Books there.
