Two steps forward and one step back make the walk of life very slow. So many people  are one the same path. They trudge along, not knowing or caring where they are headed.

Are you on that path? Are you unhappy with your current status? Maybe you feel that you are stuck, and have no where to go at your job. You may feel too old to start over and try again.

I am 75 years old. (I know, you are surprised I can still type and sit up to do this post.) I have a book published called, Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World, , that I didn’t start writing until I was 69 years old. It has received a national award from the Reader’s Favorite Awards.

I was a teacher until my retirement in 1995. I felt just like many of you may be feeling right now. What now! I thought I was going to have to sit in my rocking chair and fade away into the sunset.

God had another plan. He pulled me out of the muck and mire on March 31st, 2001 when I was sitting in my Ford Explorer thinking of checking out of this hotel called earth. I cried out to Him for help and He took my hand and has been leading down the right path ever since.

I have to admit, I never grasped the thought that I would be am author some day. The only writing I had done was in journals. Well, much of my first book was taken from those very journals. I didn’t realize I was preparing to publish a book just from my hurts, and pains I had written down.

Don’t let this world overcome you and make you feel you are worthless. There are so many thing you can do to make you feel good and help others at the same time.

It is never too late to start something new no matter what you age is. Behind that next door could be what God had in mind for all along like He did for me.

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

The suicide of Robin Williams wakes us up again to the dangers of depression. My new book coming out soon, Signs of Hope for the Military, concentrates on helping the soldiers with their depression. We need more books and resources to reach out to those who suffer anxiety, fear, depression, self-doubt, and the many other usual suspects.

There are far too many young people, on this hotel called earth, that go that drastic next step to end their pain.

I know a great deal about this because I have been there. I was breathing my last breaths in 2001. I was sitting in my Ford explorer, and contemplating suicide.

I finally cried out to God, “I can’t take this anymore!”  At that moment I felt such a relief, and it seemed God was saying to me, “It is about time you came back to me. Now let me carry you the rest of the way.”

God saved my life that day, and He then lead me to write my first book, Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World. The book was awarded over twenty 5 star reviews, and won a national award from the Reader’s Favorite Awards. 

If you or someone you know is dealing with depression, please check out the bookstore at the top of this page, and see information about the book, Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World. I am not seeking a lot of money from this. I just want to help as many people as I can. Please tell others about the book if you like it.

How you doing? Do you seem to have more dark days than sunshine in your life? Are you floundering in the muck and mire? You aren’t alone, over 19 million people in the United States alone suffer from from depression type symptoms.

Satan loves to torment people and give them pain and suffering. Fight back. Hit Satan in the face, and tell him he is grass and you are a lawn mower. Don’t let him put you up on his trophy wall.

Get help and read as many books as you can that share how to cope in this not so friendly world, like, Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World, does.

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

I have a podcast here that I did with John Kremer, the marketing guru. He invited me to share unusual places to sell books. Take a listen and hit those streets running: goo.gl/WGTF7

I saw a report that eBooks are starting to slow down in sales. They reached their peak and have leveled off. What does this mean?

It means that, if you have a truly good book, it doesn’t matter what the trends are. Your book will sell in any market at any time if it is well done, wins awards,  and has good reviews.

My book, “Signs of Hope: ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World,” recently won an award from Reader’s Favorite Awards. It also has received several five star reviews.

This has helped it keep good sales going.

Never feel that trends are what controls the industry. Good writing, and promotion controls the industry.

I went to a friend’s house last night to see some slides he had taken while he visited Israel. I thought, ” Oh boy, here is another of those boring slide shows put on by an amateur.”

I was very wrong. Don Phillips had a wonderful presentation filled with fascinating stores of his trip. He was very emotional the whole time while showing the slides. He kept saying things like, ” This is where Jesus prayed and sweat blood. This is where Peter denied knowing Jesus. This is where they think Jesus was buried. This is the Mount of Olives, where Jesus will come down to someday.”

As he went through the slides, I too got emotional. I decided that I had to go to Israel myself some day. I added it to my “bucket list.”

With Israel being attack by the Hamas, and many other countries in the Middle East trying to destroy it, the end times doesn’t seem to much like a fairy tale anymore. For those who are skeptics, the writing is on the wall.

I have read the end of the book (Bible) and God wins!

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!
