Patriots or anarchist? Jeff (19) and Ann (18) were graduates of the Castleway Academy. Each swore their allegiance to the United States and the principles set forth in the Bill of Rights. They dedicated their lives, and the resources of the Academy, towards preserving democracy and protecting the individual rights guaranteed to all citizens under the U.S. Constitution. Americans were apathetic and permitted the government to compromise guaranteed rights by allowing the government, in the name of Homeland Security, to erode such simple things as privacy, gun rights, speech and assembly all for the greater good of the ruling political elite under the auspices of national security. Jeff and Ann create a random encryption interface which reencrypted data every second preventing unlawful spying by the NSA and drones. To awaken Americans, Jeff and Ann produced historically accurate video programs covering the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. As citizens awakened, the political elite became the targets of questions and demands that individual rights be restored and the Constitution followed. The government, through Homeland Security retaliated and arrested Jeff as a domestic terrorist for producing the educational videos that enticed social disobedience in the name of liberty and freedom. The battle for liberty was reborn. New Beginnings is the first book in a trilogy that addresses government overreach, lack of transparency and the desire to stop fourth amendment violations by disabling drones and shutting down the NSA data collector.

New Beginnings

A Devotional Study of Genesis and Acts

As the divinely inspired Word of God, the primary purpose of the Bible is to probe the depths of the human heart more skillfully and purposefully than any surgeon could possibly imagine. With this in mind, my intent in New Beginnings is to follow the riveting narratives of Genesis and Acts with a primary emphasis on the devotional and inspirational elements. From a Christian perspective, I cannot imagine four beginnings with more historical significance than those emphasized in these two informative books: (1) the creation of the world with all its living things, (2) the foundation of Israel—God’s chosen nation, (3) the establishment of the Church—the Body of Christ, and the most incredible beginning of all, (4) people from every walk of life being born again by the power of the gospel. My personal perceptions and convictions have evolved from a background of thirty-three years using the scientific method in chemical research, and even longer exploring the eternal truths of the Bible as a Christian and minister. I might add that the practical experiences I gained as a husband, father of two girls, and bivocational pastor prevent my viewpoints from being too esoteric or theoretical in nature. Whether a casual reader or serious student of the Bible, I hope you find New Beginnings informative if not illuminating, interesting if not stirring, and encouraging if not inspiring. Finally, if your Christian fervor needs rekindling, my prayer is that these pages nourish and revitalize you—like a steaming bowl of my mother’s chicken soup on a cold, rainy day.

A Story of Autism and a Family's Determination

A Live Controversy documents the Hartmann family's lengthy and tireless fight to gain the least restrictive education for their son, Mark, from his diagnosis of autism at age two through his senior year of high school. The Hartmanns faced bias and resistance from the Loudoun County school systems of Virginia, who were unwilling to rise to the call of Mark's challenges and provide inclusive education. Ultimately, Mark's family and Loudoun County Schools battled in court, therefore calling national attention to the plight of autistic children. After years of red tape and legal battles, the Hartmann's hard work finally culminated in the landmark disabilities case, Hartmann v. The Loudon County Board of Education. While the legal battle was lost, Mark was still able to finish his high school education and social upbringing in the inclusive environment of a neighboring school system. A Live Controversy not only models how to organize teachers, therapists, and social networks to encourage appropriate development of autistic children, but offers insight on family life and behavior modification techniques as well.

Medieval mystics have much wisdom to offer contemporary middle-aged women grappling with empty nests, evolving careers and relationships, spiritual growth, and physical issues. Mechthild, for example, began her writing career at the age of fifty. And Julian, referring to Christ as “our kind mother, our gracious mother,” has a vision of Christ allowing us to make mistakes, a helpful image for women mothering nearly adult children. Each chapter focuses on a topic of interest to modern middle-aged women. Useful for individuals and groups.
