  1. In getting back to my new friend,Sam, thank you for the prayers,Steve came through and is in recovery. As to your book,I would love to read it. Is there a way for me to do that? My story, Yinney the Sloth who needed to Poo,has become my blog site until finished. Simply look for chapter one.I have a feeling we have much in common as to loving the simplicity of Christ, and dismissing what has become shallow and complex.I look forward to much good reading and feeding of my spirit. I look forward to many good conversations.I very much enjoyed your return comments.I’m getting ready to read more of your site, and yes, let me know how I can read your story. I think it was entitled God’s Fingerprint

    1. Yeah, I’ll be publishing God’s Fingerprint this month… I just needed time to put finishing touches to it before I get it out. It’s been a five-year journey. I’m glad Steve is recovering now. All thanks to God! I also look forward to reading your story from Chapter One.

        1. Amazon is widely known around the world for books and kindle books, so it wouldn’t be quite difficult for anyone who desires to read the book to find it. You know platforms like Barnes and Nobles, Lulu, Kobo, and others aren’t oft most people’s choice in comparison with Amazon. I’m done thinking about traditional publishing.

          1. Okay, that’s neat! I suppose it is known world wide instead of just North America or such. Was just wondering as they aren’t the biggest selling company, and looking for someone who’s not self publishing but still easy to go with. : ) And yes, ugh easier to find the book! Yes, I know of those platforms, have you ever tried them out? Lol, same! What’s the name of your book and how long until it’s published?

            1. It’s titled “God’s Fingerprint”. It has a subtitle actually: “Taking God and his church outside of our human systems to a life of love and relationships with Him and one another.”

              Nah… It’s just known by a few in North America. However, I hope the readers on my page are anticipating to see it. They loved the story! Also, I should concur that Amazon isn’t necessarily the best, but it could be a better platform for the moment. I don’t hope to sell a lot of copies in a few months though, because I’m still an upcoming author. I’ve tried Lulu. I didn’t like what I saw there. Some things are quite difficult for me to comprehend there. Maybe it’s just me; I don’t know about any other person. I just need to do some hard work, talk with Father about it, and see how it goes.

                1. About that, I never liked writing since I was a kid. All through elementary and High School I never liked it. It all started when I sat down to listen to Jesus. That’s where my passion for writing was born and that’s where it grew. It’s funny I know.

            2. Oh my… Did I misunderstand your comment? Because it does seem to me that I just did. I’m doing several things at the same time and at a similar pace, so I wrongly got what you’re talking about. Yeah, Amazon is widely known as they have other platforms besides Amazon.com

              I apologise…

    1. Hi, Irena. It’s good to finally hear from you. Yeah, Path’s an amazing brother, and I’ve been learning some wonderful things from him as of late. I also hear you’re writing a book. I would love to read it. I hope you’re enjoying your journey with Jesus and the life that trusting him produces. I hope to know you guys better.

      Sam.

      1. Hello!
        Path is super cool indeed! I see he is your number one fan and reader! 😂
        I am writting a book, one about Irena Sendler during wwII. It’s a work of historical fiction, and with all the characters, storie lines, their reslationshios mysteriers lesions etc; its taking a while! Currently at just over 200 pages. 🤗 That would be so cool if we ended up reading each other’s books one day!
        Yes, I am having a blast loving my life for Jesus, Sam! Trusting Jesus, it’s crazy and exiting! You never know what’s to happen next! Looking foreword to more of your posts,
        Grace

        1. Yeah, that’s supercool! I’m actually writing a story quite similar to what you talked about. It’s about a University girl, Jane Harper, whose village was disturbed by a tempestuous storm. She finds herself in the first century, as she makes friends with some early apostles and got most of her ideas about Jesus and his church being challenged. It’s over 120 pages with about 11 chapters.

          Yeah, we’ll get to read one another’s books someday. 😁😁

  2. Hey Sam, the young lady above my comment, Photo-girl, she lives in Alaska and is working on a book also. A fictional type story about a nonfiction person. Ever heard of Irena Sendler? Very amazing lady! Anyway, I told her about your book and sent her your way. She was home schooled. Family of 10 children! Loves the Lord. Very special young lady. Also loves photography.

    1. Hey, Path! Thanks for connecting Irena and me! I’ll say Father’s family in the world is like that friends of friends stuff on Facebook. I love Alaska, but I’ve never been there. I do read wonderful things about it. And I’m sure our friend, Irena, is actually more amazing than Alaska. Hope you’re enjoying your day?

              1. Hey Sam, thanks for the prayers and feeling better already, after 10 days of not feeling better. So glad to see you connected with Grace. And one more thing…I wrote chapter 30 of “Yinney” and I put a poem at end of it called : “The Question”. I think you might like it. Please check it out when you get a chance. No hurry/ no worries. Thanks.

                    1. Okay… I’ll read through it and get back to you. Actually my book is almost ready. I’m just looking out for someone who will rearrange the covers as a single PDF file. That’s been quite difficult for me. But thanks anyway!
