Only nine years old when his mother is killed, Ronnie's father remarries and brings him  a step-mother AND a step-sister, Rhonda.  As latchkey children, they become dependent upon one another and promise to always be best friends and companions.  But in the ever-changing dynamics of their dysfunctional family, that was destined to not happen, and Ronnie is forced to leave Rhonda behind. 

          After serving his country for three decades, Ronnie, now a retired Marine, sets out to find the step-sister that he has not heard from in decades.  The search takes him across the country as he uncovers a trail of abuse, alcohol, and drugs, as hope turns to despair.  Then, when least expected, their paths merge and their prayers are answered.
          Join in the emotional rollercoaster ride as a loving step-brother determines that somehow, somewhere, he is going to succeed in his quest for his step-sister,  of Finding Rhonda.

A book on Spiritual Warfare by Rick Tallent
THIS BOOK WILL FIRE YOU UP AND CHANGE YOUR LIFE AND MINISTRY!!!   ORDER IT TODAY!!!!T
If military science is indeed a true ‘science’, then its rules and strategies are repeatable, and, are universal laws.  As such, they are also the IMMUTABLE Laws of God.  In this book, the author draws parallels between natural warfare and spiritual warfare in a unique and powerful manner that brings the reader or student into a new understanding of the battles we face, why we face them, and how to attack and counter-attack the enemy of our souls. 

The book was first released in 1994 and has become a favorite among pastors and Bible teachers, with one prominent mega-church pastor calling it, “…easily THE TEXTBOOK on Spiritual Warfare…”

Finding Rhonda

a novel by Rick Tallent

          As a teenager, Jacob Hardwick dedicated his life to the Lord and to the Call of the Ministry. Following that call, he spoke at churches, youth meetings, taught Sunday school, and worked with his pastor and youth minister. But shortly before he graduated from high school, his life is turned upside down and he leaves the church, his calling, and his friends behind to seek success and wealth.
          Many years later, a chance encounter with a beloved minister brings him back into the fold and into the ministry, much to the displeasure of his socialite wife and spoiled adult children.
          A trip back home reunites him with an old friend, Rachel Sullivan. And, later, a meeting with one of his parishioners, a former mobster, tears his life apart and leaves him wondering if he will lose everything, including his ministry.
          Not written as a typical Christian novel, "Of Friends and Family" is a story of life the way it really is, and of faith, of committment to the Lord, and how thru the hardest of trials, the Lord will show Himself faithful, sometimes even overcoming the mistakes of our past to open new doors in the future.....if we will but trust Him.
          And it is a story of the power of love.
          The characters are NOT perfect Christians? No, they are normal people who fail, who have turned away from the Lord, and who repent and return. It is a story of their journey of faith that brings them together as friends, and ultimately, as 'family', and,

YOU WILL BE DRAWN INTO THE STORY AND INTO THEIR LIVES AS EVERYTHING DRASTICALLY CHANGES!!!!
