(1) Deliver Me From Evil
Freedom September 5, 2011

Deliver Me from Evil introduces readers to Mara, an eighteen-year-old girl who has been enslaved for nearly ten years, having been sold by her parents in Mexico and then smuggled across the border into San Diego where she was forced into sexual slavery. Readers will also meet 18-year-old, Bible-college-bound Jonathan and his 16-year-old sister, Leah, whose paths cross Mara’s and who become involved in her dramatic rescue.
Interwoven between the stories of Mara, Jonathan, and Leah is the heartbreaking story of another young woman in captivity in the Golden Triangle of Thailand, whose past life mysteriously connects to the young people in San Diego.

(1)A Christmas Journey Home  
October 5, 2011

During Isabella Alcantara’s seventh month of pregnancy, her parents and siblings are murdered in gang- and drug-related violence, simply because their home was targeted by mistake. Isabella knows she was spared only because she now lives in a different location, but she knows too that the same thing could easily happen to her and her husband, Francisco. When her grandfather offers to hire a “coyote” to bring them across the border to America, she agrees. But Francisco and Isabella are abandoned by the coyote and left to die. Francisco then valiantly sacrifices himself to get Isabella to safety. Homeless, nearly penniless, pregnant, and alone, Isabella determines to find a way to honor her promise to her beloved husband.

Living on one of the smaller spreads along the Arizona border, Miriam Nelson becomes furious with God and turns from her faith when her border patrol agent husband, David, is killed in a skirmish with drug smugglers. Though her mother and young son do their best to woo her back from the anger and bitterness that have overtaken her, they make little headway.

Two widows—one driven by fear and a promise, the other by bitterness and revenge—must make their journeys along different pathways, but with the same destination: a barn full of animals that stands waiting for them on Christmas Eve. Forced to face their personal demons, Isabella and Miriam soon discover a common yearning that will bind them together in a most miraculous way.
(1)Mothers of the Bible Speak to Mothers of Today .
It’s a beautiful hard copy gift book, which would be great for Christmas.
March 18, 2009

The same God who has shown His faithfulness to mothers across time is faithful still to mothers today. Daunting challenges that mothers face day in and day out are not unique to this time, and modern-day moms have much wisdom to gain from true examples recorded in Scripture.

In Mothers of the Bible Speak to Mothers of Today, readers meet ordinary women of their day who, by God’s incomparable grace, were used for extraordinary purposes. Readers will journey through the lives of 15 such mothers—like Eve, Sarah, Jochebed, Hannah, and Bathsheba of the Old Testament, continuing through the New Testament with stories such as those of Elizabeth, Salome, and Mary. Exploring heart issues like fear, discontentment, grief, and gratitude, readers will discover solutions through biblical models of prayer, sacrifice, and faithfulness. Through these life lessons, the author points to the ultimate unfolding of God’s eternal purposes across the seasons of motherhood.

Each chapter ends with a “Making It Personal” section and an appropriate prayer. Beautifully designed, this book makes the perfect gift for a mother on any occasion.

  1. What a wonderful giveaway. These books sound so good! Sexual slavery seems to be something very big right now and one that we don't know enough about. A very important subject for us to be more aware of. I also live very close to the border so am always interested in reading books that deal with border crossings.

    Blessings,
