1971: Jake Abrams is desperate to leave his oppressive home in Colorado and begina new life in college in LA, but his dreams are waylaid when he meets Leah, an antiwar protester who pushes him into marriage and family. Through four decades Jake struggles to raise a family, facing tragedy and heartbreak, searching for meaning and faith and challenging a silent God as he wanders through his life.
Intended for Harm is a contemporary family saga set between 1971 to present day loosely derived from the biblical story of Jacob and his family. The title comes from Gen 50:20: “What you intended for harm, God intended for good—for the saving of life…”
Intended for Harm explores the depth of a heart that doubts, and how it finds its way home to a God who has never been absent. It delves into the theme of harm—how those suffering loss and unmet needs intend harm toward others, but can find redemption through grace and humility.
Written in a contemporary flash-fiction style, Intended for Harm civers forty years, each chapter a year, with a theme from a hit song for that year. Each scene is a fifteen-minute snapshot of the Abrams family, a “photo album” of Jake’s life of wandering “through the wilderness” and coming home to faith at the end of his life. Anyone familiar with the Bible will recognize many similarities to the famous story of Jacob and his son Joseph. At the heart of this story is an exploration of fathers and sons, of loyalty and betrayal. And mostly, how we often intend harm to others because of wounds we carry in our souls, often without our knowing.

When seventeen-year-old pop sensation, Ethan Carter, drives drunk and almost kills a man, his livid mother pulls the plug on all things celebrity. Banished to his granny’s house on the Alabama coastline, Ethan is subjected to an extreme dose of normal.
Ethan views normal as a synonym for boring, but things take a turn when he meets Alaina, the spunky Christian from Granny’s church. With her brutal honesty and complete disregard for his rock-star status, Alaina is beautifully different, and for the first time, Ethan is finding it very difficult to get what he wants.
The closer Ethan and Alaina become, the more obstacles seem to come between them. And as Ethan’s punishment draws to a close, he knows that a decision is inevitable. He can return to the life of his dreams, or he can leave it all behind for Alaina. Maybe normal’s not so boring, after all…

I’ve been called.
Either a mutual friend told him to call me, or her husband talked to my husband at work. Usually, their connection to me differed. Their reason for calling was always the same, though.
“What did you do?”
It became increasingly more difficult to contain my answer to just one phone call. How have I kept MS from consuming my life and my dreams of becoming a mother? They were seeking that “one thing” I did, “one prayer” I prayed.
It soon became clear that many things were done, many prayers prayed, and that I had only one answer to give. I had to tell them my story, from the beginning…

The vast majority of Christian preaching focuses on Golgotha, what Jesus accomplished by submitting himself to death on the cross. But what of his resurrection and his now indestructible life? What is he doing now for the church and for the world? This little book opens up what the scriptures say about his present-day ministry as high priest of the new covenant at the right hand of God and how that ministry aids the 21st century believer.
It is written in a condensed style. At 44 pages (9282 words) it is an easy read on your phone or pad, as well as your Kindle.
