This book tells the story of a hurting family, an amazing little girl and a mysteriously faithful God.
Emily wasn’t born perfect – so one might think.
She was born with Down Syndrome and many would jump to the conclusion that she would have very little hope for a life with any significance. Two years later came the diagnosis of leukemia. What little hope remaining turned to no hope whatsoever – or so one might think.
The life of this little girl, with all its perceived imperfections, had great meaning. Her loving nature and courage touched the hearts of everyone she met. She also taught them how to value their own lives – even with their many “imperfections.”

A gritty, emotionally gripping story about forgiveness, family, and the sometimes tragically painful sins of the church.
Jack Bennett has a wife, two kids, the perfect job–and the perfect affair. When he is caught and it all comes crashing down, Jack is left with no one to turn to. No friends. No family, except his recovering drug addict of a sister.
On a Sunday morning drive, he sees a homeless man locked out of a church service, banging on the door. He stops and offers the guy a cup of coffee. He asks the man his name, and the guy says Yeshua. As in, Jesus.
Jack’s not stupid. This isn’t the real Jesus. But with nowhere else to turn, Jack forms an unlikely friendship with this eccentric homeless man–one that will test his idea of truth, faith, love, and forgiveness.
And Jack is completely unprepared for the real-life twists his story is going to take.

For those who enjoy contemporary Christian fiction…
Twenty-four year old Michele Ramirez is as street-wise as they come with a past full of painful memories. Drugs and alcohol are the only friends she trusts but when she announces her unplanned pregnancy to her boyfriend, even her addictions can’t dull the pain of his attack.
Waking up in the hospital, days after her boyfriend’s assault, Michele realizes how bad life is about to get. She finds herself homeless and hopeless until Officer David Matthews befriends her and offers her employment as an assistant to his ailing father, a local pastor.
After accepting the position, Michele uncovers a path she had never imagined available to a woman on the verge of self-destruction. She finds herself on a journey to forget the past, finding hope in a new life, and discovering God’s enduring love and forgiveness for even the worst sinner. But will she live long enough to accept it or will her past mistakes catch up to her?
Not your typical sweet Christian romance story, as it deals with difficult issues such as drug and alcohol addiction as well as physical abuse while still remaining appropriate for Christian fiction.
