INSPIRING HOPE IN A HOPE-LESS WORLD



In all my years working as a Registered Nurse where I specialized in Mental Health and Emergency Medicine, I saw the pain people struggle to overcome.

This didn’t only comprise of physical pain, it was also the mental, psychological, emotional, and spiritual pain.

I won’t speak of physical pain. We have all felt this.

Mental Pain:  Mental health is vastly misunderstood. Getting help for it, or admitting you need help and seeking it, is something that seems shameful. This pain is suffered by a person who is different to normal. The person who feels paranoid all the time. They hear a laugh and think it’s directed towards them. Or the Newsreader on the television looks up directly at the camera, saying the police are on the lookout. The paranoid person wants to hide because they think it's about them. Mental pain.

Psychological Pain:  Believing in the unseen or unknown to the point where it begins to cause physical pain. A person categorizing intense pain to the place of believing it’s something it's not. Some, have committed suicide believing without evidence, that they have an incurable disease when they haven’t.  

Emotional Pain: You don’t know which way to turn. You have just learned you or someone you love, have a month to live. You cry, you plead for help, and your emotions get beyond you. It shows in your life, and it affects those closest to you. OR you live with a narcissist who deliberately does things to make you feel like you are going crazy when you are not.

Spiritual Pain: knowing that you have committed wrongs in your life that are not in accordance with God’s Will. We are convicted in our heart when we do wrong, but for some, they are convinced that God can never forgive them, and they suffer exceedingly. (Admitting to God and asking forgiveness is the release from this, yet many can’t believe God can be so merciful.)  GOD IS LOVE and MERCY.

HELP:  Here is where in retirement I reach out through my books to inspire and encourage the reader to see past problems. To come to that place where they are able to see the treasured love of God. HE who never sleeps and forever loves them.

It's only when you have suffered yourself, that you can speak from knowledge and understanding.  With my own life experiences and then working and seeing the suffering in other human hearts, I CHOOSE to make a difference. And from reviewers of my books, I can see that I touch souls with HOPE….. (With help from the Holy Spirit).

Held Captive by Thoughts.

Are you held captive by your thoughts

Someone says something to you. You are unsure of their meaning?  The more you think and ponder, the more you are certain that what they said was meant to be offensive. 
It may not be at all, but it you think it is, then it can lead to wrong feelings.

Perhaps your life has been hard and hurtful. 
Maybe your dwelling in your mind about this and forever feel miserable. 

God can hear our thoughts. Matthew 9:4 Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said, "Why do you entertain evil thoughts in your hearts?"
Our best advice about the way to think RIGHT is here....
So if your thoughts are a mess, clean them up. 

Proverbs 23:7 "For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he!"

JUDGE NOT !!

                                         All of us are guilty at some time of judging other.
 Yet we are told in Gods Word not to judge. How can we know or understand someone else??
It hurts when you feel others might speak or think ill of you. In likewise manner, we may hurt others by doing the same. 



More and more people are believing that the world is flat instead of a globe. In fact, I am unsure myself what to believe.  Can we judge those who do believe.......  as probably crazy? 

God's Word itself seems to point to the fact that his world is flat. 

Research and JUDGE for yourself.  
Many Bible Verses: http://reflectionofmind.org/60-bible-verses-describing-flat-earth-inside-dome/


An important reason NOT TO JUDGE is because God makes what man thinks are the foolishness of this earth, ..... to confound the wise.


I have heard that judging CAN be taken out of context.

In the end, the ultimate Judge will be God. He cannot be tricked, coerced, or manipulated.

Are You a Spirit Warrior?

What is meant here is, a believer in Christ who stands up for the faith against evil and promotes what is right in God's eyes.



We can all do this. We don't have to be noisy about it (you can if you want to) but many of us turn aside when we hear, say a swear (cuss) word.
People around us and in the workplace might do it and to be sure, when you don't, they will begin to notice.  Because, YOU ARE DIFFERENT.

In many places of employment it is against the rules to speak up about our faith, so we show how we are and what we stand for by having a humble spirit and kind attitude.

I thought a lot about the many people who don't understand how the forces of evil are at work in this world.

 Often God is blamed for the catastrophes. Yet our own actions and sometimes our selfishness can be the cause of dilemma and trauma.

I have experienced the spiritual quite a few times over my seventy years. And so, this book shows much of that spiritual bad behavior.

This story is fiction, and although some events are related to my own knowledge, it is still a story.

Synopsis: 
 Serenity’s mother deserts her at birth. Left to be raised by her grandmother, she learns the secrets of herbal healing. When her grandmother dies her mother and stepfather re-appear in her life, Serenity is now in moral danger. Realizing this she escapes their clutches in the dead of night. Yet never could she imagine how God would use her in an extraordinary fashion.

The Word Says, Ephesians 6:10-11 to "be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power" and to "put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes." Then as we're given details in how to put on those pieces of armor, we're told to take the shield of faith "with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one" (verse 16).
Very few can see into the spiritual realm of good and evil.
Serenity Charles is a young woman given that special gift of spiritual vision. With it, she commits to fight off the powers of wickedness.
Serenity (Rena's) spiritual eyes are open to see evil deceit, and she observes demons that live within humans causing destructive behavior.
Wearing a sacred armor, Serenity, goes into battle to protect those who the demons would coldly harm or annihilate. With her shield she is protected from their flaming darts while using her sword of the Word, she cuts them asunder sending them screaming away in panic.
Three of Gods Waring Angels, Avigdor, Ariel, and Akim, are her guardians and collaborators, supporting her to accomplish a victory.
Aiden Baker, a mining boss, meets and is apparently taken by Rena’s beauty. He fights his attraction for her by either ignoring or voicing his reluctance to pursue a promising relationship. Will this angry man remain stubborn or will he chase Rena when she leaves town to return to her birthplace?
This supernatural story takes place in an Australian Outback town during the wild roaring twenties. A time marked by happiness, that often lacked respect and morals. Iniquity prospered primarily in the goldfields where the hunger to get rich quickly – thrived over honesty. A Fictional Story based on Biblical Fact. We are all called to be, Spirit Warriors.

My own Desire as a Christian Author.


My books contain something for every soul that has any aspiration to be more inspired in life. We all face trials, some bigger and some smaller. Yet in the end, its how we handle those problems. Do we become better because of the lessons learned, or do we become bitter and dry up in our potentials? My stories are about being VICTORIOUS!  Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
