Home Again: Stories of Restored Relatioships

Hello everybody. I know it’s been a minute since we’ve last chatted and I apologize for such a long absence. I believe you’ll forgive me once you hear the reason for my short hiatus. I’ve been working on several projects and I’m proud to announce the release of the first one—Home Again: Stories of Restored Relationships.

This anthology is one I’m proud to be a contributor to. More than that, I’m looking forward to seeing how God will work through the collective works of the authors.

So what is this anthology about? Glad you asked. The central theme is the restoration of relationships. Those relationships may fall within the realm of father/son, family indifference, husband/wife, or sibling rivalry. The examples presented are not unusual nor are they unsalvageable, with the help of God.

We invite you to join us for the official debut of the book – November 1st, and follow the online tour provided for you below.

A Closer Walk With Thee

Melody Carlson asks a very simple yet profound question, “Does what you hear in church on Sunday affect the rest of your week?” Rather than leaving the question to be pondered Author Carlson provides tools to assist those whose answer may be—yes.

Within the pages of Always-A Teen Devotional: Words from the Rock, the final installment in this series, 90 devotionals set the stage for personal study and a closer walk with Christ. The work is not substitute for the Bible,
but it does assist those seeking relationship and those desiring a closer relationship with Christ, with tools to apply to their lives.

Write Package, Wrong Baggage

Life is a continuous journey. The baggage we choose to take with us is a matter of choice. Unpacking those bags is the choice of the individual. Acceptance of what once was will be the choice of the recipient.

In Right Package, Wrong Baggage Pamela Roberts has received a most unusual Christmas gift via her son Matthew--Micah Stevenson. Despite their unorthodox meeting, the two are seemingly made for one another. It will be the revelation of Micah's past that will determine if Pamela can handle the truth and look to the future.

For those who enjoy conflict entwined with intrigue, you will definitely find it here, but not in the sense most are used to. What you will find with Ms. Campbell's presentation is her willingness to process the reader through this relationship. In doing so, key elements that are essential to the whole of the story are established. This work is one that will provoke thought and conversation long after turning the final page.

TAKE ANOTHER LOOK is a new feature that gives a bit more insight into selected books presented on this blog.

As an avid reader and literary professional, I must say that it is refreshing to come across an offering that is engaging, entertaining and provokes one to thought. It is especially invigorating as it pertains to Christian fiction literature.

Right Package, Wrong Baggage by Wanda B. Campbell is a work that is setting the bar for Christian fiction genre. Devoid of over-the-top conflict, baby mama drama and a majority of its pages dedicated to the sin nature of its characters, this book invites the reader into a relationship with goals. It also is a storyline with a process.

Within that process the ability to get to know the characters, their aspirations and fears are showcased. Within the realm of conflict, the absence of over-the-top drama is avoided. In its place is the presence of backtracking, i.e., the process of discovering what brought each to the point of insecurity. With skill, the author adds elements of intrigue to the story in order to keep the reader engaged and the story moving toward a feasible end.

If you are looking for a surface read, you will not find that within the pages of Right Package, Wrong Baggage. What you will find is a well-written book that brings light to a few subjects most are unwilling to speak about without prejudice or condemnation.

Have You Been Checked?

Each year Let Us Bear Fruit sets aside time to honor our mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin—those women who fought the good fight and those who are still in the war to eradicate breast cancer.

In an effort to assist, for any comment left on this blog during the month of October, we will donate $2.00 to breast cancer research. Please don’t be shy, talk it up this month and help us help others.


Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosis among African American women, and among women nationwide.1 Studies have shown that when African American women follow the same preventive measures as white women, their death rates from breast cancer are very similar. However, African American women are more likely than white women to be diagnosed at later stages of the disease and are more likely to die from it. Scientists are still exploring the reasons behind these trends. Read more: Here
