Let the Son shine in

$13.95

A Book of Poetry By Leslie Sousa

"Leslie's heart flows through every poem in Let the Son Shine In. Tears filled my eyes as I read words of tenderness, life, love, sorrow, compassion, love, grace, and hope. This is a book to warm your heart." - Karin Kyle, Women's Ministry Leader, Calvary Chapel Modesto

"Let the Son Shine In took me on a journey through love, loss, grief, adventure and healing. Each poem in this anthology left me anticipating the next. I could not stop reading until I got to thievery last word.  I love the way Leslie used her mother’s poems to launch her own responding poetry. I felt every ounce of Leslie’s mother’s love for Leslie, and in return Leslie’s love for her mother; the pain of her loss, and the peaceful comfort that has followed. The precious messages that this treasury holds have touched my heart deeply. I laughed, I cried, I was inspired, encouraged, and blessed.
I look forward to purchasing a copy of my own and can’t wait to share this beautiful collection.

Little Diva on Wheels

$15.95

Little Diva on Wheels---Growing Up Differently-Abled

  An Autobiography By Jennifer Kuhns

Being born ten weeks early literally put a hitch in her get-along. Weighing in at only three pounds twelve ounces, then being diagnosed as a spastic quadriplegic, who knew Jennifer could live in an able bodied world as, what she calls differently-abled, with any kind of success. Here she shares the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of doing exactly that, making a place for herself in the world of non-believers and nay-sayers, with the help and support from family and friends.

"Jennifer Kuhns’ Little Diva On Wheels gives us insight into the life journey of a "handicapped” child and her family. Funny and engaging, Jennifer gives us a peak into and forgives us our bumbling, awkward, and occasional rude behavior towards people different than ourselves. The Articles, Reviews, and Reflections section challenges us to reflect on the treatment of disabled people through the ages." -Karen Holcomb, RNC

"Excellent!! I laughed, and cried and learned so much! What a unique experience getting inside the mind and heart of someone who has been labeled, judged and written off as so much less than she is! I will be recommending this book to every human being I know. Thank you for your amazing personality and vulnerability that has allowed us, the readers, to gain such insight to what is true and real in the world of 'disabilities.'"- Tene’ Sylvia, RN and mother of Gabriel-“differently-abled.”

Bloom

$15.95   (also available as an Ebook)

By Heather Vargas

One summer evening changed their lives forever.

If you’ve ever asked, why bad things happen or, where is God when you are facing tragedy, then Bloom is a must read. Heather Vargas gives an honest look at life with authenticity as she travels the road of grief. Bloom will grab at your heart, but you will find yourself laughing amidst tears at her irreverent, fearless tone in addressing complex issues. In the end, Bloom offers hope to all for a better tomorrow.

 “Bloom” is the most honest, vulnerable, personal account of a mother’s grieving heart that I have ever read. One cannot help but feel a powerful bond with the Vargas family as their story of shattered bliss unfolds and begins to resolve. I have no doubt that God will mightily use “Bloom” in his providence for those who seek to pick up the pieces after the death of a cherished child.” - Sandi Cantrell, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
