A Journey to Freedom

“Forgive” is a profound exploration of the healing power of forgiveness, woven into the heart-wrenching narrative of a community under siege and a man torn by familial strife. Set in Alabama, where The Golgotha Coalition’s relentless assault on Christian values tests the resilience of the faithful, this novella is a beacon for anyone wrestling with the burdens of unforgiveness.

Pastor Cole, while leading his congregation at the brink, realizes that mirroring the forgiveness Christ extended from the cross—as recounted in Luke 23:34—is the only path forward. Cole’s journey to understand and embrace this truth offers a compelling template for anyone struggling to let go of past hurts.

Alongside the town’s battle with darkness, we track Victor Harlow’s personal journey of reconciliation. Years of conflict with his brother Charles leaves Victor yearning for peace amid deep emotional turmoil. His quest to earn Charles’s forgiveness underscores the narrative’s heart—that freedom and peace are found through forgiving, even in the face of deep-rooted resentment.

“Forgive” is an invitation to embark on your own path of discovery, confronting past hurts and present challenges with the healing power of forgiveness. This journey not only challenges but also uplifts, serving as a powerful reminder that in the shadow of Christ’s example, there lies the strength to forgive and the power to be truly free.

Solving the Money Puzzle is a Biblically based non-fiction work that reveals God’s plan for financial freedom.

Solving the Money Puzzle outlines God’s plan for financial freedom—the missing piece to the money puzzle. In nine short chapters, Solving the Money Puzzle explores key Scriptures and parables relating to possessions, wealth-building, work, teaching children, government, and money management (planning, spending, saving, debt, giving, etc.).
