Invest in Yourself

Invest in yourself. Put in the time and expense. Fill your cup with education and spiritual nourishment.  A wise investment will overflow, allowing you to give and serve and help those in your circle. People need what you have to offer. Take the time to invest in you, and you won’t be the only recipient of the abundance that awaits.

I was filled this weekend with the influence, education, and expertise of some of the finest giants in the marketing and authoring world. At the Igniting Souls Conference in Columbus Ohio, I was edified by these fine people:

David Branderhorst, creator and coach for Business Academy Elite.
Dan Miller, NY Times best-selling author and serial entrepreneur
Rachel Pedersen, award-winning social media strategist
Jeff Brown, award-winning broadcast industry veteran and podcaster
Brad Burke, YouTube business consultant
Dexter Godfrey, America’s fearless success speaker
Dean Fulks, Founder of LifePoint and best-selling author
Skip Prichard, former CEO of Ingram Spark
Kary Oberbrunner, author, coach, founder of Author Academy Elite, and Chief Igniter.

Each of these wonderful people shared strategies for success in their personal fields of interest and gave tips and encouragement to help authors launch and grow their business.

Did I benefit from this investment? More than I realized I could. As a fiction author, it has been my dream to use my book to help people beyond the worth of the story. The presenters at the conference gave me the confidence to launch my career and the tools to make it stand on its own. Good things are coming. This was an investment that will change the world.

Is Someone Trying to Silence You?

Magic-sense will no longer be silent.

Is someone trying to silence you?
Ever since I was a child, I could see right from wrong so clearly. But as a child, I felt powerless to speak up and rectify the injustices I saw. In essence, my magic-sense was bursting to speak out, but I was helpless to give it voice. My magic-sense was forced to be silent.

Have you experienced similar feelings of weakness?  Did you think those feelings would fade as you grew, only to find in your despair that the forces to oppress your voice rose equally alongside you? Speaking up or speaking out could cost you so much. In some cultures and during certain periods in history, it could mean the matter of life and death.

There is a right way and a wrong way to speak up. There is a right time and a wrong time to speak out. There is a right place and a wrong place to make a stand.

Pride is concerned with who is right. Humility is concerned with what is right. ~ Ezra Taft Benson

As your magic-sense awakens, you’ll be tempted to speak up, speak out, and take a stand like never before. But remember this: how you handle this new-found power within is as important, if not more, than having the power awakened to begin with.

In A Doorway Back to Forever: DEFEND, everyone must take a stand—everyone. But how the characters do it is unique to their journey, and whether or not they succeed is relevant to the story—not necessarily theirs, but to yours. In DEFEND, you’ll see the warriors work through their desire to no longer be silent, and you will search inside your heart to address precisely what it is that’s been stirring inside you.
Will you speak up?

Do you want to be a part of something extraordinary?

A Doorway Back to Forever has an eternal message, unique to each person, and one that goes beyond the imagery of once upon a time. It was never meant to end—not after one book or even seven. There was always more to this idea than mere entertainment.

I’ve wanted people to have the opportunity to imagine what it would be like to have an Awakening, to walk through a personal doorway back to Forever, and to experience life in the Kingdom of the Morning. So while I’ve been writing the series, I’ve also been developing an online supplemental program designed to give readers a way to add to their enjoyment. Stepping Through the Doorway is about ready to launch!

In Stepping Through the Doorway, you will have several experiences to choose from, depending on how far and for how long you wish to visit the Kingdom of Forever. There will be videos, downloadable files, family fun night materials, and more, all designed to remember your self-worth, strengthen faith, build courage, offer relief, and help spark the creative nature you were born with.  

Three … two … one … liftoff!
I’m in the middle of a countdown for launching my new website, Beyond the Doorway. On it, you will find information about the book series, but you will also find the new online experience. When it’s ready to go, I’ll have a double launch party for DEFEND and Stepping Through the Doorway.
But this is a monster undertaking that has me shaking in my shoes. I need a team of Skyborn believers to help back me up on this. I need you.

I invite you to be on my launch team! 

You will get:
*Instant access to new info about Stepping Through the Doorway and the book series
*Complimentary downloads of new material
*Info on sales and releases before the general public
*Launch party prizes and goodies in true party fashion
*Membership in a Facebook closed group of like-minded people who love story as much as you do

All I ask of you is to:
*Say you’ll be on the team
*Like my Author Page on Amazon
*Post reviews of my books
*Share posts and links from my blog, author page and Amazon
*Be active on the group page when you can—say hello!

So if you are interested, please reply back to this post and let me know if you are in! I’ll get you on the list, and we can begin this journey together.

All it takes is the courage to believe …
