She’ll lose contact with her friends and be unable to develop a relationship with Kell, a boy in her school year, or with her beautiful best friend, Fortine. What does she do? Can she find an ally in these difficult times?
Many families miss loved ones when they are away serving in the military. Sometimes the service men and women are away from moms, dads, brothers, and sisters. In this story Dad and the kids, Harmony and Dominic, are home missing mom. Mom is in the United States Army, and during her deployment, she is sometimes gone for up to 12 months. Throughout the book, you experience what the family has to do to cope without mom, all the while missing her. I hope this book is a testament to those families who make many sacrifices at home and abroad so that we can enjoy the freedoms that we have.

A fantastic book that is perhaps the best exposé ever written on the world’s largest and most popular religion (approximately 2.5 billion adherents) from an ‘insider’ who participated in Christianity for many years. You can search far and wide and you will not find a better book on what Christianity is, why it is a successful failure, and why it’s being a successful failure should be of urgent interest to you and those you care about.
In Christianity: A Successful Failure, author Tim Spiess holistically yet simply, using non-complex language, puts forth the best worldview possible for humanity. He starts with common existential issues that we all face and provides insightful and satisfying answers to life’s most important questions.
Spiess avoids petty doctrinal discussions and uses many creative and insightful analogies and metaphors to reveal why Christianity is a successful failure. Reason, logic, and observation are used well to demonstrate that many of the foundational beliefs and practices of Christianity, not only have nothing to do with the real, historical Jesus of Nazareth but actually nullify and cancel out his most important teachings.
This book rises above religious concepts and movements like the Reformation and seeks to bring a paradigm change in people’s view of God and this life we are given. In the last section entitled, “The Solution”, what we all desperately need to solve conflict, loneliness, and emptiness in our lives is revealed. This book will change your life IF you are truly open minded!

About the Author
After being raised by a physician and his wife in the U.S.A in New York and marrying into a wealthier millionaire family; after earning a Bachelor of Science degree in essentially Environmental Science at the University of Vermont, as well as a Master’s of Business degree from Pace University; and after having successful career jobs at private companies like IBM, Ryder Transportation Services and McKesson; something happened to Mr. Spiess that radically changed his life…something that totally changed his perspective and the ‘trajectory’ of his life.
Mr. Spiess is a unique person in that in the U.S.A, he has experienced persecution for his faith. He has had beloved children wrongly taken away from him and ordered by the government not to communicate with those children; has been wrongly fired from jobs; has had rocks thrown at him; has been slandered; has been asked by religious leaders not to come back to their churches; all for doing his best to speak what he believes is true. He has not experienced persecution due to saying obnoxious or rude or crude things or aggressively pushing ‘his faith’, but rather for just proclaiming truths about what people should value in life.
Mr. Spiess has walked away from ‘careers’; has sold houses due to faith and lived with his family in an RV. People who don’t understand Mr. Spiess would say he has given up much or he has thrown away or wasted much. Mr. Spiess would say he has gained much.
This author has somehow escaped most of the boxes that people live in and view life through, has risen above those perception constraints, and has produced a truly unique and insightful work that has the potential to bring desperately needed positive change to many, many people.

For centuries, the Great Bell was silent…
It remained undisturbed, nearly forgotten by history, hidden away in the ruins of an abandoned fortress. The enchantments within its iron slumbered, its secrets protected by silence. Until someone discovered how to ring the Bell, other secrets would remain safe.
One day, while running an errand, a young store clerk took a wrong turn, then another, until he found himself deep within the old fortress where the Great Bell waited.
It waited for him.
And when the hapless clerk rang the Great Bell and released its enchantments, his troubles began.
For he had become the Bellringer.
He claimed it was all an accident, that he did not mean to ring the Bell. Fate, it seemed, thought otherwise, and proof of the Bellringer’s destiny began to emerge just as the world spiraled into war. Revolt and treachery worked to break apart the Seven Realms. Armies were on the march. The faraway King, obsessed with his own power, seemed unwilling or unable to prevent the looming catastrophe.
Perhaps a new King was needed…if only someone could penetrate the secret of the King’s power and take the throne before it was too late. It was foretold that the person who discovered the True Name of the King would become the next King. But who was capable of such a thing?

About The Year of the Red Door
244 Days Remain. That is all.
The Year of the Red Door has begun, and four months have already passed by. This is the story of the last 244 days. Uncanny things are taking place in the world, mysterious powers are stirring, and there are signs of coming change. Like pieces on a game-board, ancient forces are moving into position, gathering strength. Many sense the portents and see the signs, but few know their meaning. Fewer still understand what must be done. But who is there to do it? In only 244 days, six intrepid travelers must cross thousands of miles, to the far edge of the world, to find a place that may not even exist. A legendary place called Griferis where a new king may be prepared, trained, and judged for worthiness. It is their bid to find that place, to discover the secret Name of the King, and to make one of their companions the new King. But hope is thin, and time runs out. Can the Name be found? Can the Usurper use it to take the throne? And will it make any difference? It already seems too late.
In the spirit of J.R.R. Tolkien and Charles Dickens comes a new heroic tale, a story of ageless love and brave determination, of tragic loss and the hope of redemption. During this quest, mythic powers arise from the ancient past, fate collides with destiny, and the world edges swiftly to its final destruction or to its ultimate fulfillment. Only the Bellringer can tip the balance of fate, but the world is almost out of time…
