A 52 week devotional focused on specific words, each word defined in an acrostic. Words can heal or hurt, save or destroy. Words are so important that the Bible describes Jesus as The Word. Often we have tunnel vision and focus on what we think a word means, when God has so much more for us to see and understand. This book gives a different perspective on many common words, revealing the divinely inspired and inspiring message in the word.

In the ancient days before the Ancestors kept the stories, the People of the Frozen Earth lived in the vast wasteland that is now called Siberia. Seeking a better life, they moved south across the land bridge into a New World, traveling through what are today Alaska and Canada. Just under two thousand years ago, this semi-nomadic People settled in the basin between the foothills at the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains and the flat tableland of the Western Great Plains in the area now known as Wyoming, Montana, and the Dakotas. Strong and proud, they lived, loved, hated, laughed, cried, and died in the fullness of Mother Life’s time.

From the back cover of Re-Deal: A Time-Travel Thriller:
Buckle up for time travel, karate, and gambling in this action-adventure thriller. Matt McCain, a young man trying to overcome personal loss and family misfortune, and his amigo Juan, a Mexican orphan turned evangelist, are pitted against the Cyphers, a family that utilizes evil for every gain. The presence of Miss Guided, the angel who doesn’t always get it right, changes them all.
With more twists than a switchback trail, Re-Deal is a time traveling race against evil and misfortune. An 1882 poker showdown promises to change history forever, and Matt McCain aims to be the winner. But first he must match skills with the greatest cheaters of the Old West—from Doc Holliday to S. W. Erdnase.
The players, the power, and the present all hinge on the journey back to 1882, a trip through time that Re-Deals history in a startling conclusion.
The only How-to-Write book that has nothing to do with writing. It’s all about rewriting. Whittle away what buries the art of your words beneath pulp, no matter the topic, no matter the genre.
