Oh No!

By Charlotte Hammonds

America, once a godly nation, seems to be in a hopeless situation. The reason being that it has slowly moved away from the godly principles it was founded upon.

When nations repent and turn back to God, there is always hope!

About the Author

My first purpose in this book is to bring forth a message to encourage others to move into the right relationship with our Lord. It will determine one’s eternal destiny: Heaven or Hell. Second is to urge Christians to pray for America like never before. Third is to urge Christians to repent daily. God is coming soon after a clean bride (the church); one that is looking for Him.

Of Friends and Family

By Rick Tallent

As a teenager, Jacob Hardwick dedicated his life to the Lord and to the Call of the Ministry. Following that call he spoke at churches, youth meetings, taught Sunday School, and worked with his pastor and youth minister. But shortly before he graduated from high school, his life is turned upside down and he leaves the church, his calling, and his friends behind to seek success and wealth.

Many years later, a chance encounter with a beloved minister brings him back into the fold and into the ministry, much to the displeasure of his socialite wife and spoiled adult children.

A trip back home reunites him with an old friend, Rachel Sullivan. And, later, a meeting with one of his parishioners, a former mobster, tears his life apart and leaves him wondering if he will lose everything, including his ministry.

Not written as a typical “Christian” novel, Of Friends and Family is a story of life the way it really is, and of faith, of commitment to the Lord, and how thru the hardest of trials, the Lord will show Himself faithful, sometimes even overcoming the mistakes of our past to open new doors in the future…..if we will but trust Him.

And it is a story of the power of love.

Are the characters perfect Christians?

No, they are normal people who fail, who turn away from the Lord, and who repent and return. It is a story of their journey of faith that brings them together as friends, and ultimately as ‘family

Finding Rhonda

By Rick Tallent

When I look back on my childhood, I remember the few friends and neighbors who were being raised by a singular parent, most of whom were widows. In the four decades since I became an adult, that demographic has changed drastically as more and more households are faced with divorces, remarriages, and even second divorces. For a certainty, society has changed.

People have changed, too. Committed relationships are the rarity instead of the norm, and all too many young people are learning lessons from the adults in their households that will lead to another generation of people living their lives without the security and love of a true family.

The Bible says that the sins of the parents will bring curses to the family to the third generation. I have seen so much of that in my years of ministry that I can assure you that the scripture is, sadly, true.

People make decisions how they will treat their spouse and children. And they decide the dynamics of the family by their actions.

Family is important, but commitment is even more important. Our commitments will reveal who we really are and who we are not.

My prayer for this novel is that maybe, just maybe, the fictional story will cause someone to evaluate their life and become a better person, a better spouse, and a better parent and/or step-parent. That is how it happens. We make a decision in our life and it has an effect on someone else’s life.

The Deadliest Member of Your Church

By Danielle Richardson

In The Deadliest Member of Your Church , Danielle Richardson shares from her personal experiences as the wife of a pastor and from fellow pastor’s wives about the deadliest epidemic lurking in our churches today. She offers encouragement through God’s Word and shows us how to defeat this powerful enemy.

With many ministers and their families leaving the ministry today, our churches have lost their influence in their communities and are leaving wounded servants and a marred witness of the love of Jesus in the wake. It is time for the church to open a discussion on this subject and strive to bring a healthy environment within our churches that will radically change our world. As the church goes, so goes the world.

Stories from the Creekbank

By Curt Iles

They say places like Dry Creek no longer exist. In Stories from the Creekbank , you’ll travel to a delightful place where you will realize that good people and wonderful experiences can still be found in the small community of Dry Creek, Louisiana.

As you sit along the creek bank to read these heartwarming stories, you’ll both laugh and cry as you travel down the creeks, roads, and into the hearts and lives of the people who make up the community called Dry Creek.

Whether it’s a country preacher in his prize white suit, herding horses on a muddy road in “Bro. Hodges’ Best Sermon,” a homesick seven-year-old camper in “Seth’s Big Camp Day,” or the heart-rending sadness of losing a special teenager in “A Bright Light,” you’ll be touched and encouraged by these inspiring stories.

All through these forty eight short stories, a common thread is woven: God is so good and He is active all around us in nature, the people we see each day, and the simple daily events of our lives.

Stories from the Creekbank is really three books in one: “Stories from Dry Creek” is a compilation of the community where Iles grew up. The second section, “Stories from the Back Pew,” shares tales of growing up in a warm country church. The final installation, “Postcards from Dry Creek,” is a compilation of an unforgettable summer at Dry Creek Baptist Camp.

A Good Place

The Westport Series

By Curt Iles

"Deep in the Louisiana piney woods is a good place."

No Man's Land is where Mayo Moore begins his story of growing up during the turbulent years of the Civil War. Through his parents' inspiration--Irishman Joe Moore and his part-Indian wife, Eliza--Mayo learns that love of family is stonger than any challenge.

"Families stick together through the storm and come out stronger."

A devastating hurricane is first in a series of floods rolling over the Moore family, the approaching storm of the Civil War being the ultimate test of everything the family believes in.

More than a coming-of-age tale, A Good Place recounts the enduring love story of Joe and Eliza, as told through the eyes and heart of their feisty oldest son, Mayo. His tales take readers along the winding creeks and tall trees into the hearts of memorable characters such as Joe and Eliza, "Unk", Miz Girlie, Bo, and Uncle Eli.

Continuing the story that thrilled readers in The Wayfaring Stranger , Curt Iles writes in the warm and humorous style loved by readers of his previous six books. A Good Place , the second book in "The Westport Series" shares about a time and place where "life was good, but never easy".

Stories from the Front Porch

By Curt Iles

Come sit on the front porch of The Old House , where the view is good and the breeze is cool...

From there, you’ll enjoy thirty-seven heartwarming stories that all have one thing in common - Life is a joyous event to be celebrated as we focus on the things that really matter.

The Old House is a book you’ll not want to put down as it weaves its inspiring web of simple yet profound stories. Set in the rural community of Dry Creek. The Old House is a spiritual book that carefully looks for God’s hand everywhere - in nature, the warmth of family, country living, and even in the times of trouble we all face.

It’s about legacy and roots, as told from the front porch of a century-old log house located deep in the woods. Yet, it is equally a book that celebrates the promise of the future through its joyful search to find the best in others as well as the world around us.

“Two years ago Curt Iles brought us Stories from the Creekbank , a collection of real-life short stories. Now he’s back with The Old House , a book filled with homespun humor and moral lessons. Iles’ unique story-telling technique both entertains and reflects God’s grace in our lives. The Old House is an excellent companion to the Creekbank stories.”

A Spent Bullet

By Curt Iles

Late summer 1941. Louisiana's piney woods are engulfed by a tidal wave of soldiers engaged in the largest army maneuvers ever undertaken on American soil. For many of these young men, as well as the isolated Southern communities, life will never be the same. Although no one knows it, our nations will be at war in three months.

Elizabeth Reed is a young Louisiana schoolteacher who dislikes soldiers. Harry Miller is a Wisconsin soldier who hates Louisiana. It only makes sense that they should meet and fall in love.

Their story begins with a bullet--an empty cartridge tossed from a truckload of soldiers. The note inside it will change the destinies of these two young people.

In the midst of large-scale battles between the red and blue armies, Harry and Elizabeth are each fighting their own war with dark secrets from their pasts. They have nothing in common except mutual desires to escape these pasts.

Within this clash of cultures lies the core message of A Spent Bullet . Rural Louisiana is never the same, and neither are the soldiers who learn about Louisiana mud, mosquitoes, and a misery mixed with memorable Southern hospitality.

More than a love story, A Spent Bullet recreates a memorable but largely forgotten time in Louisiana and our nation's history. Told in the warm and touching style loved by readers of his precious eight books, Curt Iles weaves a story of love, history, and redemption.

Wind in the Pines

A Collection of Real Life Inspirational Stories

By Curt Iles

Take a walk under the tall pines and listen to the wind. So often we are so busy with living that we fail to hear the quiet rustle of the wind in the pines. In Wind in the Pines author Curt Iles shares stories from the quiet, everyday, events of our lives.

You will both laugh, cry, and be inspired by more than thirty true stories in Wind in the Pines .

Wind in the Pines is the third book of short stories by Curt Iles. Just as in his previous books, Iles takes readers on a joyous journey that leaves them wanting more.

My Father's Gift

A Louisiana Outdoor Legacy

By Rodney Hennigan

A humorous and inspirational family adventure punctuated in all the right places with tornadoes, fireworks and hunting angst. My Father’s Gift is one man’s desire to pass on to the next generation -- and readers everywhere -- a love of the outdoors, laughter and creating cherished memories. It’s a tribute to fathers who still manage to spend time with their kids, including and especially, The Everlasting Father, the creator of the great outdoors.

When sportsman's paradise becomes tornado alley with little warning, Rodney Hennigan finds himself agonizingly separated from one of his sons and humbled by God’s reassurance.
