I wrote a novel in 2016 but wasn't able to complete the challenge in 2017 but any writing helps prepare something for later.

The Disciples is a new a Bible Club for teens. There will also be a wordbook for Disciples of all ages. Part 1 is finished (Matthew chapter 5) the rest of the Sermon on the Mount will be complete by the end of the year. If you are interested contact me and I will send you a PDF of the book for you to review or use if your funds are low. 

The numbers are in and there are over 2400 copies (ebook and print) of The Bee in the Blackberry Bush around the world! The average run for a self-published book is 500+/- so it looks like this story has hit a cord with people. 

THANK YOU for believing in this story.

A book review on the book,

IMPOSSIBLE TO FORGIVE?” What God Can Do When You Can’t by Charles Areson.

As a pastor I often said, one of the most dangerous things we could ever pray is, “And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.” (Matthew 6:12 NLT). I mean really, do we want God’s forgiveness of us based on how forgiving we have been towards others? Jesus added the following to these words, “For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.” (Matthew 6:14-15). Simple and to the point, if we don’t forgive others, God will not forgive us.

The same is true of this book. Simple and to the point. Areson shows us how God can, indeed will, help us do something that is impossible for us to do on our own. Forgive others! No matter what they have done.

In the book, Areson is honest. He tells us that though God commands we forgive, He was not able to do so. He shows us how, if we are willing to admit we have a problem (not being able to forgive) and allow God to take us through the process, we too, might reach a point of rebuilding trust and finding reconciliation.

I believe the words of this book are invaluable. I believe there are many “Christians” struggling with the same problem. I have already thought of someone I want to purchase a copy for. Perhaps you will think of some as well as you read and work through it.

and found out her dad was published! 

Proverbs For My Daughter 
is a new project my wife and I are working on. It is a paraphrase of the book of Proverbs for women. What might Proverbs had sounded like if Solomon wrote it to his daughter? We are going to try and answer that question without changing the truths and the wisdom Solomon shared. A resource for females who want to read Proverbs without having to translate to their gender.
