HER DARKEST BEAUTY
Born into an occupied city, Karra had never known a world free from Nevians, the alien invaders of the Homeland.
Unknown to the Homelanders, the Nevians brought more than their military might. They brought along entities called Molochs.
These beasts feasted on the darkest emotions of their hosts.
Nevians knew how to protect themselves against these nearly invisible creatures, but not so the unwary Homelanders caught in the Molochs’ webs of deceit.
Karra was approached by one when only a child. She had just witnessed the murder of her father, and reeled with the chaos that threatened to consume her.
“I can protect you,” the beast told her. ”I can help you destroy all your enemies. I can help you hate and hurt – and KILL!”
“And then, when you have done my bidding, I will reward you with peace…a peace like ice. A peace like death.”
But now, as an adult with a child of her own, Karra found she wanted to love her daughter more than she wanted to hate her enemies.
But she was trapped in the icy prison the beast had made for her.
So Karra realized she needed to fight to escape her internal prison if she was ever to live as a whole person.
But the beast was not willing to let her go.
It wanted to feast on HER DARKEST BEAUTY.

”I AM” – The Words Jesus Said About Himself
As Christianity diminishes within our pagan world, many have strange ideas about the identity of Jesus. He’s the Great Guy in the Sky. He’s one of the prophets of God. He’s one of the sons of God, our righteous brother that we can aspire to emulate. He’s Joseph’s son and a wise teacher. “Jesus is awesome!” one youth proclaimed, even while he chose to live a life of deception, lying and stealing. One group believes he’s the lord of this world, and if we live righteous lives, we (men only) can inherit our own world, just like Jesus did. He’s Michael the Archangel in the flesh. Or, some say, he never existed at all.
The list is practically endless. Who is Jesus? Is he a great teacher, a prophet, a wise man? We (Christians) claim he is the Messiah, the Chosen One of God, the only Son of God, the Savior and Redeemer of humankind. We Christians actually worship Jesus as our God. Are we correct, or have we been mistaken for two millennia? What did Jesus say about himself?

Maybe you lost your job during this crisis and now must work two jobs just to break even, or maybe you’ve been looking for work and, with no luck for two years, decided to give up.
During this time, many lost their jobs, then their toys, then their homes, and finally their courage.
What do you do when it’s all gone?

THE FOX AND ABD AL-QADIR
My March Toward Freedom—As Told By A Prisoner Of The Third Jihad
When our country was newly formed, we began suffering attacks from who we now refer to as the Barbary Pirates. At this time we no longer shipped under the Union Jack, Britain’s flag. While shipping under Britain’s flag we held an immunity of sorts. It was true that Europeans of every nation were being attacked by these pirates, but not as often or as frequently as our fledgling nation.
These pirates preyed on us because we were untested. They would confiscate the goods we shipped and hold our people for increasingly high ransoms. These pirates were who we now refer to as militant Muslims. They felt it was their right, under Allah, to steal from us, or even kill us should no ransom be available.
Now let me make a qualifier here: Not all Muslims are militant extremists. We have a great number of peaceful, wonderful, gracious and prosperous Muslims in this country who are appalled at what these militant extremists are doing. Their voices are not being heard in this country, and they should be.
To get back to our story, our founding fathers began asking, “Who are these people?”
To answer this question, they found a Quran and began reading it so that they could understand our enemies better. That was how the Quran got into the White House in the first place.
Our response was our first war outside our borders. We fought these pirates “to the shores of Tripoli,” as the Marine Hymn says.
Europe had also had enough of these militant Muslims. Their response was to invade Muslim-held countries, such as Algeria. They took their war one step farther, however, in that they also began colonizing these countries. The result was they made enemies of people who could have been their friends, because not ALL Muslims, just as now, were the enemy, only the militant extremists.
My great-great grandfather was caught up in part of this action. He became a prisoner of war of the Third Jihad under Abd al-Qadir.
This is a book of his memoirs, his own personal experiences under Muslim militant extremism.
They have not changed. This time, however, the conflict is global. With their own words they have said they will destroy us. I believe them.
