Following the death of her husband and the publication of her first book three and four years ago, Suzy Lowry Geno continued to walk the hills and creek side of Old Field Farm seeking a simpler peace-filled life like those of her grandparents and great-grandparents who worked those acres before her.

Rejoice as God sends her a concerned white-haired protector and a new family of faith for encouragement. She has walked through the Valley of the Shadow of Death but, while growing numerically older, plans to keep climbing the mountainside while “keeping her hands busy and her heart open.”

Islam cannot be treated simply as a religion. Islam is a political movement seeking to bring about a worldwide theocracy with Muslims ruling through Sharia Law. Islam is a socio-political system founded on a religion. Its laws are a set of irrevocable and unchanging religious commands written in the 7th century in a book called the Quran (Koran) by the prophet and warlord, Mohammed. Today, Islamic terrorists are killing innocent people and destabilizing governments around the world, but what do we really know about their religion, their beliefs, and their ultimate goals? We will answer the following questions and more: Where and how did Islam originate? What does the Quran actually say and mean? What do Muslims believe? What makes this religion so dangerous? Why do Muslims insist on using Sharia Law instead of the laws of any nation? Why do some claim Islam is a religion of peace even as it spawns terrorism? How and why did Islam splinter into so many violent groups? What are the Taliban, al-Qaeda and ISIS? Where did they come from and what do they want? Are terrorists and radical Muslims actually following the Quran? Do these Muslims really want a global war? Does the Quran actually support war, terrorism, slavery, polygamy, marriage to children, animal sacrifice, stoning, beating, amputation and decapitation? Why are many Muslim believers so eager to kill and die for Islam? Why are European countries sinking into lawless lands of rape, murder, and chaos under the actions of Islamic immigrants? What can be done to stop terrorism here and now? How can we defend our nation and our families against radical Islam? We will use direct quotes from major clerics and the Quran to reveal the truth about Islam. We will look into the plans of radical clerics to take over Europe and then the U.S. We will examine the history, beliefs, laws, aims, and goals of Islam. We will use the words of journalists and reporters to delve into recent events. We will uncover terrorist groups actually working with the U.S. government. We will read the words of noted security experts to gain insight into defense. We will understand radical Islam and be prepared to defend against the coming violence.

Islam is a socio-political system founded on a religion. Its laws are a set of irrevocable and unchanging religious commands written in the 7th century by the prophet, Mohammed. Who was Mohammed? What did he teach? Was he a prophet or a warlord? Did Mohammed actually marry a six-year-old girl? Does Islam still allow sex slaves? Is Islam a religion of peace or of violence? How do you read and interpret the Quran? Was the Quran actually written by Mohammed as an inspired book that cannot be altered? Why are the laws and practices of Islam the same as they were in the 7th century? How did Islam spawn so many violent movements? What is ISIS? Where did they come from and what do they want? Are terrorists and fundamentalist actually following the Quran? Does the Quran teach of an apocalypse? Do fundamental Muslims want a global war? Does the Quran really support polygamy, marriage to children, animal sacrifice, slavery, and such cruelty as stoning, beating, amputation and decapitation? Why are so many believers eager to kill and die for Islam? Do Muslims actually believe there will be 70 virgins for each man in heaven? What is the truth the faithful know and will not say? In this book we will answer all of these questions and more. We will use direct quotes from major clerics and the Quran to reveal the truth about Islam. Can the Islamic terrorists be stopped? Included here are the answers to all these questions along with a copy of the Quran in English and instruction on its interpretation so each statement can be checked and verified. You will learn about the rule of Abrogation that clerics use to properly interpret the Quran. We will see how one rule of Quran interpretation has obscured the true meaning of the faith from those not deeply familiar with Islam. In the end, you will understand what is happening in the world and why.

Autism: Our Journey and Finding Happiness

Buy this book now!

There are thousands of books on Autism. Some books advocate new methods of teaching styles. Some talk about alternative medications that have worked miracles. This book does not make such claims. What this book conveys is that every family who has a child with autism has to figure out a coping system that works for their child with autism and for themselves. This is our journey to that place of facilitation and happiness.
There are many variables that effect the real life situations of living with autism. Assimilating the research based teaching methods and styles with a great deal of love, compassion, patience, and consistency has paid off for us, and it will also work for you. The fact that our child is processing information, using cognitive and metacognitive processes in his life’s situation, trying to problem solve and use schema or prior knowledge for his own benefit and survival goes beyond the scope of the usual fundamental theories presented today. We have found that properly amalgamating various theories with common sense applications has worked for our child and us. This book is our way of tackling autism, so it is a one of a kind story. You will see the processes described in this book will yield an individual result, which will also work for you, producing your own “one of a kind story.”
Every family who faces the challenge of taking care of a child with autism goes through emotional trauma. This book is not about that pain but how we have overcome that pain and we have come out stronger. We want the autistic child to develop into a happy person, who is able to function well in his or her surroundings. Beyond simply functioning, we want to discover the child’s natural talents and skills, and possibly develop a vocation.
After reading this book, I hope those who come in contact with children with autism or any special needs children may see that everyone has value and potential. This book will guide parents, siblings, and teachers in various ways to assist the autistic child in reaching his or her full potential. In the journey we will find respect and acceptance for the uniqueness within each of us.

The Book of Giants: The Watchers, Nephilim, and The Book of Enoch

Among the first seven scrolls discovered in the caves of Qumran at the Dead Sea is a scroll given the name, “The Book of Giants.” It is thought to have been based on the Book of Enoch, a pseudepigraphical Jewish work from the 3rd century BCE.

The Book of Giants, like the Book of Enoch, concerns itself with the Nephilim, which are the offspring of fallen angels, who are called the Watchers. Two main versions of the text exist. The Dead Sea version is written in Aramaic. Another version has been found written in middle Persian, adapted from the Aramaic to fit into the Manichean religion. Both versions will be examined. Following theories speculating that the Book of Giants was once part of the Book of Enoch, we will attempt to place the two texts back together to render the complete story of the Watchers and the Nephilim.

We will discover the history and contributions of these ancient scrolls and look carefully at their content and meaning. Throughout the combined texts of the Book of Giants and the Book of Enoch we will examine all the biblical and apocryphal references and parallels within the text. The result is an in-depth and panoramic view of the Angels, the Watchers, and the Nephilim, and how one of the giants of the Nephilim race may have survived the flood intended to cleanse the Earth of their horror.

Tales from a Strange Southern Lady

Jan Fink’s stories are drawn from her life experiences and the people she has met along the way. She allows her characters to channel their stories in their own voices. Stories that involve what it is to be human and capable of greed, hatred, brutality and even murder. Her characters take us through the struggles of the human capacity for good and evil, the capacity to love, human frailty, the burden of guilt and sin and realizing the dark side of their own nature. From Anna fleeing her eccentric Southern family, Olivia’s childhood memoir, Damon Pierce’s knowledge, John Love’s quest for Clara Jean, Little Bill’s Greenland to Pauley and Dylan’s driving lesson, a mother’s story of abuse, the long-winded George McNutt, Buzz the collector and Archie’s question, they are each in their own way searching for meaning and freedom. “Tales from a Strange Southern Lady” is fashioned with sentences that artfully paint perfect pictures and a sharp, wicked sense of humor. At the same time they carry that sort of Southern innocence and naiveté that makes the characters so likable and the hatable.

Heresy of a Curious Mind

The extremes to which the church and its leaders have gone in order to protect and justify various decisions regarding points of faith is fascinating, but tends to obscure the truth. Revisionist history, coercion, greed, lust, and propaganda were the order of the day when the major items of doctrine were being decided. In fact, many of those truths that we hold so dear in our Christian faith were decided, if not invented, through or because of political and financial aims, and not by theological insight. Many doctrines went well beyond what the early church held as truth. Come with us as we look behind the curtain of church history and view information through a political and scientific lens. We will carefully examine historical documents to reveal the intention of the leaders. We will consider the history and virtue of the major Christian doctrines, as well as where those beliefs have brought us in our churches and religious life today. In the end, we must ask, “Where is God amidst all of these rules, politics, sex, and doctrines?” First, we will discover how our faith was manipulated and changed by politics, sex, and power. Then we will discover where we left God and how we may once again find the source of life and happiness. Items discussed include: Theology, Framework Of Christianity, The Bible, The Canon of the Bible, Inerrant Scripture, The Trinity, Virgin Birth, Polygamy, Celibacy, Transubstantiation, Rapture, Apocalypse and the End of Days, Sabbath verses Sunday, Tithes and Offerings, Prayer and Faith, Magical Thinking, Original Sin, Mary: Immaculate Conception, Baptism, Predestination and Foreknowledge, The Mark of Cain, Job and the Petty God, The Schizophrenic God of the Old and New Testaments, The Development of Satan, The Axial Age, The Pinnacle of the Axial Age, Religion Addiction, Conclusion of Religion and the Beginning of Spirituality.
