Footprints of the Soul

What if...at the end of our time on this Earth, it is really just the beginning? Frank Hebert, a self-made millionaire, is accustomed to buying whatever he wants whenever he wants it. He is totally focused on his own needs. Even though he grew up poor, he now thinks little of his world or others in it. When he is told by his doctor that he is suffering from incurable cancer and that all his money cannot save him, he finds himself completely helpless, without resources, without power, and very scared. His doctor, though, knows of an unusual clinic in the mountains that has had some successes with terminal cancer cases and manages to get Frank admitted. At the clinic Franks learns about a philosophical view of life that is totally new to him, which gives him hope that this Earth is not the only place where life exists. His journey into the afterlife is an exciting adventure--one you will not soon forget. $18.50

SEEDS OF VIOLENCE

This book is about domestic violence, and the devastating effects  it has on children in abusive homes, so it is addressed to all  people in abusive relationships. This book is about children in  both abusive and non-abusive homes who are exposed to  violence in their music, their video games, their movies, their  schools, and almost every area of their lives, so it is addressed to  parents, who are the only people who can do anything about it.  This book is about a society that turns a blind eye to the growing  violence in every aspect of our lives, so it is addressed to elected officials,  indeed to everyone in this country who sees just how uncivilized we have  become. We have become a country of large “me first” egos with souls  obscured by money, greed, and power. We are a country of religions  instead of God. There is a difference.   While this is an autobiography, its purpose is to call attention to the  growing and pervasive violence in America. The author begins with  her own childhood in a home with an abusive, alcoholic stepfather  and expands the discussion to our modern culture which condones violent  music video games, movies and television, and turns a blind eye to the  growing violence against women and children. The author suggests a  course of action for parents to stop, or least slow, the production of these  materials, as well as positive replacements for them in the lives of their  children.  B.J. Mitchell holds a Masters Degree in Library Science and an MBA and  PhD in management. A partial list of her accomplishments is included in  Who’s Who in America. She has written numerous books as well as  articles for professional journals. Dr. Mitchell’s fables for children are  written under the pen name of P.J. Pokeberry.   $19.95

An Analysis of the Relationship Between the Marketing Strategies Used by Protestant Churches in the United States, as Reflected in their Sermon Topics, and the Political Preferences of their Congregations A dissertation submitted in Partial Fulfillment of the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Business Administration and Management, at California Coast University, by B.J. Mitchell The purpose of this study was to analyze the frequency with which certain specific social issues were included by Protestant ministers in their sermons, and to evaluate the degree to which the social causes were different for churches with politically liberal congregations from churches with politically conservative congregations. The subjects for the study were selected by random sample by American Church Lists, Inc., from their database of Protestant Churches in the United States. ACLI selected one thousand churches, and survey questionnaires were sent to all of them. The results of the study supported the working hypothesis that the messages delivered from the pulpits of conservative churches differ from the messages of liberal Protestant churches. The differences are not 100%, of course, but issues identified as conservative by other researchers are mentioned by ministers in conservative churches more often than in liberal churches, and issues identified as liberal are used more often by ministers in liberal churches than in conservative churches. This was true for nine of the ten social issues included in the survey. $25.00      2002, 106p.
