    Self-Condemnation and Chronic grief. Darlene West inspires us through her book “Awakened by Grace”.

    Self-Condemnation and Chronic grief. Darlene West inspires us through her book “Awakened by Grace”.

    Darlene believes that writing was a gift given to her from the Lord.
    She gets inspired for her work through real life events and people watching. For her, she finds it fascinating studying people. Her newest novel, Awakened by Grace, was inspired through the people she met while street evangelizing and bringing the Word of God to those in mental hospitals. That was when her heart was touched by so many Christians and non-Christians, alike, who suffered from Self-Condemnation and/or Chronic Grief. When she sat down to begin Awakened by Grace, those suffering people were in heart, and Professor Franklin Franklyn was created.
    After the tragic accident that killed his wife, Katie, Professor Franklyn blamed himself, pushed his family away, and refused to have any social interactions. Katie was his life. He grew up with her since they were five. In fact, she was the only woman that Professor Franklyn had ever kissed. But when it was about two years after the anniversary of her death, Franklin got an unexpected visit from his eight-year-old granddaughter, Maggie.
    Maggie was always Professor Franklyn’s little princess. He’s left alone with her for five days when his daughter, Katie, and her husband, Jake, go on a job interview. While the two of them spend quality time together, Maggie’s faith-filled prayers manifest before Franklin’s eyes, and she leads new people into his life. Though all that God has revealed Himself to Franklin, through Maggie, he still has trouble getting out from beneath the weight of his guilt and moving on without his Katie.

    Let’s LIVE LONGER NOW. Karl de Leeuw shows us how he was able to cure his asthma by changing diet.

    Let’s LIVE LONGER NOW. Karl de Leeuw shows us how he was able to cure his asthma by changing diet.

    Karl de Leeuw studied over many years with leading experts in the world in the subjects of dyslexia, alternative health, nutrition, and spiritual awakening. These studies took him to the United States, United Kingdom, Poland, Egypt, Israel, India, and Nepal.

    He is currently working on two studies. One is an informal study to show how we can reverse asthma, osteoporosis, MS and cystic fibrosis. Another is a study about the minerals in plants.

    Karl's research helped to understand that rather than viewing dyslexia as a curse needing correction, it could be seen as a gift providing distinct and real mental advantages.

    This exciting message of hope resulted in his first book, The Dyslexia Code. Dyslexia is not something to "suffer" from, this book proposes, but the basis for real, natural-born creativity and entrepreneurship.

    As part of his investigations, Karl also came to appreciate the vital role that correct nutrition has on our physical and mental health, as well as on how long we live. The fruits of his findings are contained within his book, The Healthspring Code.

    Karl's latest book, The Universe Code, is his most ambitious, taking more than seven years to research and revealing clues to answer to the biggest questions of all: the mysteries of the universe.

    Joyce Fields shares inspirational messages about relationships, raising kids and love.

    Joyce Fields shares inspirational messages about relationships, raising kids and love.

    Joyce started her career as a stenographer at a major utility company, working her way up through supervisor of word processing, then as the office manager for an automotive advertising agency, and, lastly, as an executive assistant at a large non-profit health maintenance organization. She is also a professional proofreader. All of these positions were leading her into writing and becoming an author.

    She wrote her first book, "Line of Serenity" (a memoir), in 1997. Being the oldest of seven, in a very happy family, she wanted to capture the way their parents raised them so that the way they did it would not be lost when they all passed on. Many people read the manuscript and told her that she should publish it. The book goes from 1944 through 1977 and includes family recipes and photographs. Recipes, because food was--and still is--an important part of her family's fabric; photographs, so that descendants can see what their ancestors looked like and be amazed to find a resemblance to an ancestor. You don't have to be a family member to enjoy this book! For older readers, it's a walk down memory lane; for younger readers, it provides a peek into the past.

    Joyce gets her inspiration from living and observing life. In addition to "Line of Serenity," she has written books about parenting ("Mother's Dozen: An Easy Recipe for Raising GREAT Kids!") which is also available in Spanish; relationships ("The Best Way to Keep a Man is to Let Him Go [among other things]"); children's fiction ("Jette Black and Her Seven Friends"); children's non-fiction ("THE VISION: Telling Kids That They Can Make the World a Better Place"); bullying ("Dear Bully: A Collection of Poems about Bullying"); health ("A Breast Cancer Journey to GREATER Joy! Taking the fear and mystery out of a breast cancer diagnosis"); spirituality (THE LIMITLESS GOLDEN RULE: 21 Ways to Use the Golden Rule In Your Life"); and the power and simplicity of quotes ("My Simple Quotes to Live By"). One of her quotes from this book was chosen from over 5,000 entries to appear in The Women's Advantage Calendar for 2013. The quote states: "IT'S BETTER TO DIE CHASING A DREAM NEVER CAUGHT THAN TO DIE NEVER HAVING CHASED THE DREAM."

    Joyce's mission statement is: "I write books that inspire people on their journey to make the world a better place."
