I ask for your prayers my dear readers, for the grace of God to shine upon my effort to do and follow His most holy will for me. I have already mentioned to some of you I have written four books in the past, many years ago. Also a small booklet after our 5-month-old son Melvin passed away from a severe antibody deficiency, plus a cancerous tumor (lymphosarcoma) lymphatic type, then started writing again after our son Duane was killed July 6, 1976. I found writing to be quite therapeutic and tears came along with the words as I wrote about my two sons among many other spiritual articles making up the books. “Faith and Feelings” came out in 1978 and “The Game of Life” in 1979, hoping to help others to deal with losing loved ones. My hope was to comfort those who were mourning. I myself have lost 6 children and have 6 living, loving children. Besides losing Duane, also 3 babies and 2 miscarriages. My other two books in 1987, “Journey to Heaven” which is more geared toward my Catholic faith, however I’m quite sure any faith could appreciate it. When I finished that one I thought I’d take some time out, clean my house, etc., but God had other plans. He seemed to tell me don’t worry so much about the dust gathering in your house, rather work toward cleansing souls. So very soon “Make Room For God” was complete, another very spiritual book with a section for children as does “The Game of Life” as well have stories about my children and grandchildren’s pets.
Because I am sold out of these books and being so very much encouraged concerning my articles in the Winona Post under “A Matter of Faith,” by bishops, priests, family and friends, and you my dear readers both Catholics and Protestants, I decided to have these books reprinted. After all the sorrows and sadness I’ve experienced and many bouts with depression, I feel now God is asking me to come forth and help others including young people whom I love dearly. Maybe I can make a difference in this world that has now become so darkened in sin. Man’s laws have been put above God’s laws, the Ten Commandments, as we continue to murder the unborn. If we can’t change laws we must strive to change hearts, starting with the very young, and storm heaven with our prayers. “God have mercy on us and on the whole world.”
Anyway, I wanted to put the book thing on hold till next year but I got a strong feeling this isn’t what God wants, so I have started the process to have my books reprinted. I expect to have them complete by August 1st, by the grace of God. This endeavor is not for monetary gain, I do it for God and souls. If I should receive any donation above my expenses, I will donate it to charity, or give books to those who can’t afford them.
I thank everyone for your prayers and encouragement. Be assured of my prayers as well. God’s blessings.
P.S. I will let you know as soon as my books roll off the press.
