For decades Penny Donerstag has kept dream journals, analyzing the symbolism found in them to solve problems and confirm her instincts about people, places, and situations. As an events planner, Penny has been hired to manage a cruise to the Greek Isles by a customer, Sorentino Foods. Circumstances made it possible for five of Penny's friends to board the Regal Duchess along with the charter group.
Annette, a shoe shopaholic with a penchant for gambling, Barbara, the group's voice of wisdom, and Veronica, looking to recover from her husband's death and financial difficulties, all jump at the chance to go along. Janine can't wait to meet another handsome man in uniform, and since Captain Jason Bradley fits the profile nicely, she comes aboard, Jessica, a chef trying to escape her past, sees the trip not only as a chance to prospect for new business, but to clear her name in the place where tragedy occurred.
DreamWalker explores the meaning behind images revealed in the author's meticulously kept dream journals. Suggestions are given on how to remember dreams, making it possible for the reader to harness their power and make confident decisions about work, relationships and life.
Penny's instincts, supported by her dreams, play a key role in identifying suspects who may be involved in a burglary. Her friend, Bonnie, is missing collectibles given to her by her late husband, Arlo. Dream symbolism points to possible suspects in this novel created around the author's real dream journals.
From a story by co-author David Rusch: When youngest son Ben finds a cold and lifeless little rodent in their backyard storage bin, his dad comes to the rescue and brings the creature back to life with the CPR skills he'd practiced for years. They name him Frosty and enjoy the short time they are all together. Mr. Rusch teaches Ben that God wants us to take care of all living things, big or small, two-legged or four-legged.
Knock, Knock. (Who's there?) I AM is a collection of stories from real people who lived trauma to testimonial, moments to lifelong journeys, events and relationships, all with the same conclusion, that God is indeed at work in our lives. The authors write about everyday people because they wanted o know more from the people who surround them at church and in the community in which they live. Interviews of 40 people sharing their personal stories evoke some sadness, a healthy dose of joy, and most of all, lots of love. All proceeds from the sale of this book go to the ministries of New Song.
This book is also available in the New Song bookstore in Henderson, Nevada. Contact the author for directions by writing to them at SpiritualPopUp@gmail.com.
One of the most difficult tasks faced by loved ones after a person dies is to create a memorial service which honors the deceased. Sometimes this activity falls to a distant relative or friend who may not know the person intimately enough to create a memorable service. The authors created Spiritual PopUp workshops during which participants "pop up" from one breakout session to another, discussing topics with the help of coach/moderators. This Leader's Guide illustrates how to conduct a Spiritual Pop-Up workshop in which individuals create their own memorial service in advance of the time it's needed. Checklists, recommendations, and guidance are provided. It includes a basic Participant’s Guide with reproducible forms to designate personal preferences. The guide helps one choose music, scripture, comforting words, or quotations that have special meaning and provides ideas for how to create a service unique to the individual. A comprehensive Participants Guide is available separately. All proceeds from the sale of this book go to the ministries of New Song.
