words children heard and possibly misunderstood

during the pandemic.

Jordan Rivers depicts the life of a confident, competent, ​and cross-bearing young woman who believes others ​can identify with her challenging relationships. It seems ​that people continue to cross her path. People who have ​challenged her talk and walk; professionally, ​relationally, and spiritually. The one thing that she ​knows is that God will work all things out for her good. ​Yeah, that Romans 8:28 word is continually being ​proven as a “KEEPER”. Why? That word keeps her ​walking in purpose whether the assignment is ​understood or not. After all, she’s locked and loaded ​with an arsenal of firepower!!!


Meet Carter Lawrence Cartesha Lawrence whose ​nickname is Carter is proud of the work that her father, ​the engineer, does to help people by using the ​engineering design process. She describes different ​engineering fields as she explains how engineers solve ​real-world problems.

Techie Tiger Techie Tiger was written to provide ​students with the necessary vocabulary to become ​literate in the area of technology. Tom and Joy introduce ​the children to these words with beautiful explanations ​and illustrations.

Alex Green has a DREAM TEAM! Being bi-racial and ​bi-lingual helps Alexandria learn historical facts about ​women whose dreams of being “first” came through. The ​book, Alex Green Has a Dream, is filled with Hispanic and ​African American women who were the first recognized ​for great accomplishments.

SIDE EFFECTS This literary work speaks to the growing ​concern and needs of those who walk beside ministerial ​leaders. Although the prescription (the WORD) has been ​written, it’s the “SIDE EFFECTS” that can affect the ​progressive and transformational leadership in a church. ​One should not be fooled by the brevity of this book ​because within the pages begins a story of spiritual ​discipline and a strong relationship with God.
