  • For His Honor


    But God had a plan for this young man’s life.

    With the help of a devoted mother, Terry Johnson became a vessel of honor for his country and his Lord at the very highest levels of political power.

    For His Honor, by Kay Rizzo, is the inspiring story of how God singled out a special young man to become the first handicapped person to serve in the President’s Honor Guard.

    At times, however, the struggle to succeed was almost more than Terry could bear.

    Determined and unrelentingly cheerful, he baffled his training instructors who tried their best to intimidate him into quitting. Yet Terry succeeded beyond the military’s highest expectations and won the hearts of his comrades for Christ by his living witness.

    More than a compelling tale of a young man’s victory over incredible odds, it is also a story of faith- faith in what God can do for those who refuse to compromise His honor.”

  • Annies Trust


    As she fights to save her baby’s life, Annie wonders if she will ever move beyond the fear that holds her captive, or the anger that demands, “Where is God in all this?”
    The once bright, effervescent Annie Hawkins is forever changed by a devastating chain of events: a raging fire that destroys the Pownells’ estate in western New York, leaving disfiguring scars on her heart as well as her hand; a terrifying boat ride to New Orleans; and an abduction at the hands of a ruthless man. After months of uncertainty, Annie eventually finds herself in Independence, Missouri, where she reunites with her best friend Serenity Cunard.
    After Annie marries Ned Ward, freed slave and itinerant preacher, her life seems to settle down and she looks forward to becoming a mother. But trouble soon finds its way into their home and marriage as Ned’s commitment to working on the Underground Railroad threatens to derail the fragile trust Annie has built up.
    As Annie sinks into depression, Ned gently reminds her that “there’s no such thing as luck for God’s children. Just as an earthly parent doesn’t leave the guidance of his offspring to chance, so our loving heavenly Father doesn’t guide His children by the fickle finger of fate.”
    Annie’s Trust is the heartwarming story of a young woman who wrestles through grief, loss, fear, and anger before arriving at a place where she is willing to trust her future to her heavenly Father.

  • Josephines Fortune


    Would God remain true to His promise? Could He be counted on to never leave nor forsake one of His own?

    Josephine Van der Mere felt desperate and alone. Serenity had left on her own adventure out West, and her father, New York State’s Assemblyman Samuel Pownell, had fled from the bounty hunters who were determined to arrest him for aiding runaway slaves.

    Everything had been so clear before her beloved Sam had gone. Their mission; their love; their future together.

    With a heavy heart, Josephine read the letter from Sam.

    Thanks to Clare, much has changed in my life, which brings me to the purpose of this letter. Things were moving so fast before I left New York. Having to remain confined to a bed for a spell has given me time to slow down and think about my life and what I want to do with what’s left of it.

    A cold chill passed through Josephine. Had Sam fallen in love with his nurse, Clare Thornton? Had she lost him forever?

    Determined to find the answers for herself, Josephine embarks on an adventure that carries her from New York to New Orleans. Filled with danger and intrigue, the endless question haunts her, “Would God remain true to His promise to never leave nor forsake her?”

    Book Three in the Serenity Inn Series, Josephine’s Fortune captures the conflict of one woman’s spiritual journey: a woman courageous enough to put God’s promise to the test as she travels across the country in the years prior to the Civil War.
