A Parable of the Key
After the death of their only child, it was time for Virginia and Richard to truly act on the power held within the five stones.
But their healing was taking a long time, and, quite frankly, proving to be an empty vessel needing to be filled.
Would they ever have a child of their own?
Would the old key help in their search for the truth? Joy was in their lives once again, a homeless teen with an alcoholic mother, still managing the journey to Just Desserts for another pink cupcake.
Was Joy the answer? And if so, what was the truth locked within her heart?
Travel with Virginia and Richard as they make their journey with God. Seek. Knock. Open. Find. Discover for yourself how an open heart - heals.

A Parable of the Ring
Virginia had experienced the power and direction of the five stones; now, she would need to use them again.
For an entirely different reason.
Keeping her marriage together was not the only thing on her mind. Having a child wasn't going to happen in the usual way, and Virginia was determined that adoption was the answer. If she did all of the right things, said all of the right words; if she remembered the five stones in her journey to get her child, God would surely have to answer her.
It wouldn't be too difficult.

Life isn’t all about learning, it’s about deliberate action and the workbook helps you to do that. ACT. I often tell my writing clients that writing is more than just getting the words on paper; it’s inspiring others to travel beyond the reading.
And the same is true for you. Conquering your Goliaths isn’t just about a powerful, feel good story, it’s about taking your journey to the next level; the level of doing.
In my workbook, hands-on growth experiences are offered; from writing experiences, to going out into the community, to opportunities for change through prayer and communion with God. The workbook can be used in one of three ways; (1) as a workbook to be read and applied alone, (2) in a class situation created by the individual as an opportunity to share, or (3) as a tool in an Idea Creation Workshop offered by Kathryn. In her 2 day workshop, “Conquering your Goliaths Using the Five Stones,” opportunities for growth give participants opportunities to learn, apply and share the skills they’re taught.

A Susan Cramer Mystery
What happens to an unhappy woman who leaves her husband only to discover that she may have just made a terrible mistake? So horrible, her choice threatens to end her very life?
Susan believes that the grass is greener on the other side. Not that her current life is bad, necessarily; it’s just boring and lifeless, kind of like the old matted rug on her dining room floor. Susan thinks her marriage has just grown—well, old. Her husband, Bob, has gained tremendous weight and continues to gain, and his health suffers. She must work at a job she hates full-time to provide the little sustenance they have. He, on the other hand, works very little (because of his health) and prefers spending his days watching television or surfing the Internet. Besides, there’s her problem of not getting pregnant that can’t help but contribute to his unhappiness.
Can Susan continue to live her life at the hotel knowing that she might be killed herself or imprisoned for life? Will she be able to find the real murderer with the help of the eccentric Ms. Martha Boaz?
