New Memoir Releases in Print, on Kindle, and in Large Print

We're excited to announce our latest release, Finding His Strength: An Orphan's Journey to Healing and Wholeness by Estelle H. Herndon.

Finding His Strength, which has already landed on several Amazon Top 100 lists, is available in three formats: print, Kindle, and large print.

Essie's story is powerful and poignant - and I've never admired anyone so much for being willing to open herself up the way she did in this book. The woman is remarkable, and her story will change lives - and she gives God every bit of the glory. He redeemed her life so beautifully after man tried to destroy her. May God use her mightily!

About the Author:

Estelle “Essie” H. Herndon, is a Christ Follower, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and prayer warrior. She has worked alongside her husband, Robert, as his paralegal for over forty-seven years.

Essie is active in her church. She teaches with her husband in Bible studies and leading small groups, helping with Women’s Ministries and Grief Ministries, from youth to young married adults.

She is also active in her community, having served on various boards over the years.

Her family and friends are her hobbies. She and husband Robert enjoy traveling which has included Georgia football games. She and brother Robert meet almost daily for breakfast.

She truly tries to please God in her daily activities, always remembering where she has been in her past and how God has worked in her life for His Honor. She lives in Georgia.

Loving life. Free in HIS strength!

New Release: The Little Voice by Julie E. Landon

We're excited to announce our newest release, The Little Voice, written by Julie E. Landon and illustrated by Amanda Gaskins Morris.

Available in print and on Kindle!

Have you ever heard a little voice?

Not a voice that anyone else can hear, but a voice from deep inside your heart?

You have to really listen.  It’s there. This story is about hearing that voice, listening to it and realizing where that voice is coming from.

Join Eddy as he experiences that voice for the first time and learn along side of him just how important it is to listen and follow that little voice.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever 
believes in him shall not perish but will have everlasting life. 
John 3:16 

About the Author:

Julie Etheridge Landon has always loved creating stories.  She graduated from Georgia College & State University with a degree in Journalism. She is passionate about seeking God’s will and spreading his word. “The Little Voice” is her first children’s book.  Julie lives with her husband, Eddy, and two children, Eddy and Lillie, in Georgia. Visit with us on Facebook at “The Little Voice.”

About the Illustrator:

Amanda Gaskins Morris grew up in the deep country of south Georgia. As a child, she road tractors with her granddaddy, playing in plowed soil, with tobacco horn worms, and roaming the woods barefoot on hot summer days. She became a musician like her father whom she idolized.  In her teen years the Lord gave her the gift of drawing. Which she has passed on to children as an art teacher and now passes it to children of Tattnall Square Academy in Macon. She is also an active art instructor through the ministry Truth Be Told Art.

Just Another Day by Pat Stephenson

by Pat Stephenson

We all have a yearning to go back home once more. He stood there alone until the chill brought back his sense; gazing at the farmhouse, a barn, and a string of fence that stretched away yonder to where the Platte River flows beyond where the Rockies are covered year round with snows. The scene has come full circle, like a play that never ends. Caught in an infinite wrinkle, this is the message it sends; we can look back on our past and what has shaped our way. It's merely played with another cast, it's just another day.

Available on Amazon and other major online bookstores, 
and at many local bookstores by request.
