Jaclyn and the Beanstalk by Mary Ting is set in the 16th century, giving a new twist on the old fairytale of Jack and the Beanstalk..Jaclyn, along with her mother and father have a quaint life in the country, until one day Jaclyn eavesdrops on a private meeting held by her father and other villagers in the dark of the night. As a backdrop, Jaclyn has been hearing haunted voices whom she thinks are demons trying to get to her soul. These nightmares become a large fear that she fights inwardly. Facing Black Mountain, monsters, with elements of mythical tales from the past, her worst fears are proven. But with determination and a profound love for family, she advances as a strong, almost princess warrior. .Jaclyn is the heroine in the story, somewhat different from most girls her age, and at the tender age of 16, she wanted to find love first before settling down into a housewife role, as expected by society. Jaclyn is independent, witty, fun and stubborn all at the same time. She knows what she wants and desires, and being more of a tomboy, prefers pants instead of dresses. Her passion for life burns ever brightly throughout the story, as readers find out that many a day was spent training on how to wield a sword with her father..Tender words of wisdom given by her father, adventure, suspense, a dreary dark side with a curse and a twist make this a delightful story for young teens seeking their path along life. “Lead with love in your heart”, are some words to live by given by her father seemingly inspire, teaching that life is a journey wrought with trials, but good times do come like the sunshine. Knowing your heart, truth and love, all give this story a strong steeping in Christian values. With a strange take on the Roman soldier who pierced Jesus’ side and a telling of Mary Magdalene, Jaclyn finds out a long held secret in her family’s life. Still, love overcomes all evil in this wispy, fast-paced novel..Mary Ting writes with an adventurous heart, a clever pen, introducing young readers to a classic that meets fantasy, shedding light on the family devotion and a love story that buds to completion by the end..This short novel comes as a highly recommended read for parents and young adults that prefer fantasy fiction with a Christian-based theme and a creative perspective..Mary Ting is one of those writers to notice and watch. For further information about the author and her books, visit Tangled Tales of Ting.

Finding Heaven by Dr. Edward Mrkvicka, Jr., D.D. (h.c.) with Kelly Mrkvicka Bihlmaier speaks about finding the meaning of life and discusses the pathway to heaven. .Beginning with Matthew 7:13-14 stating, “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” This book is about one’s belief system in God. With Biblical integrity, coupled with wisdom and common sense, the author truthfully states that your choices on Earth will affect your eternity. Intriguing, and filled with Scripture that explain the purpose of life on Earth, this book gives a road map to finding God and knowing God, finding salvation, obeying God and discovering true purpose in life through the knowledge of God and His Word..The book is further dedicated to those that would believe that (as stated by the author), “The deception of Satan tells us that all we need to do to be with Christ for eternity is believe.” In that statement, he addresses, what is sometimes called “cheap grace.” This is where one believes not in repentance, but the forgiveness of sins without a turning away from sin, known as true repentance from the heart. Further discussing other beliefs such as non-belief, as in Atheism, and other beliefs about God that include such theories as “The Big Bang Theory”, the authors sequentially address all of the roads that one may “think” leads them to God and to heaven..The authors further address the issue of hope and the “looking for love in all the wrong places,” as the old saying goes and gives readers a choice with thought-provoking analysis, what are you searching for knowing that when you die you can’t take anything with you? Material wealth is of no consequence after one dies, thus one path leads to life (salvation and eternity in heaven); and the other path is broad, leading many to an untimely and destructive end. The broad path is deceiving, in such Edward Mrkvicka addresses the heart and mind attitudes that may lead one on that path. .Stating their case for God throughout (i.e. creation), readers are offered knowledge of Who God is according to the “God of the Bible,” not what they may want God to be in their mind. Then the book gives readers an understanding of salvation and why it is so important to be saved. Everyone wants to go to heaven and the reality is that not everyone will go. His book is written to inform, exhort, instruct, encourage and to inspire those that would choose this temporal world over the truth of the God of creation, Who sent His only Son to save all for those who would believe. (Paraphrased John 3:16).This is an excellent book for those that don’t understand their purpose in life, need hope (and those that perhaps don’t believe in God), and for those who seek answers..Get your copy of Finding Heaven at Amazon or in Kindle .
