PictureAscripture.com is a website for the celebration of art and scripture and a testimony to Kingdom creativity pouring out of Christian artists and writers internationally who are blessed by the Holy Spirit!

We encourage believers to surround themselves and the ones they love with the Word of God and invite artists, photographers, authors and poets to join us in creating books and products that keep prayers, praise, blessings, Psalms and Proverbs, and the words of Jesus and the Prophets in front of our eyes, on our coffee tables, our walls and refrigerators, in our homes, work places and churches, on T-shirts, cell phones, etc.

Who knows if reading your favorite PWS (Picture With Scripture) on a coffee mug at work or on your tote bag at the grocery store might not just activate someone’s faith, or plant a seed, or maybe God will use that word to speak into someone’s life just at the right moment to convict him or build him up! Or maybe someone read that word only yesterday or this morning, and now here it is again: conformation or coincidence?

The WORD has power and we have the opportunity and pleasure to spread it around creatively, decoratively, in many practical ways and for the glory of God.

Title: The Foundation of Godliness and A Godly Life
By: Happiers Simbo
ISBN#978-1785072161
A CBM Book Review
9.9 out of 10.0 stars
 
The Foundation of Godliness and A Godly Life by Happiers Simbo gives readers an understanding of the blessings of the incarnate Christ and salvation. Presenting the Gospel of Christ, the author presents a firm biblical insight that offers readers a better understanding of what it means to be born again and to become a new creation.  This book is written to present salvation, in hopes that readers’ eyes will be spiritually opened.  The author then gives understanding on way to establish a relationship with Christ, proclaiming the eternal life through Christ, and continuing on how to live a truly godly life from the Word of God. Believers and un-believers alike will be encouraged to understand the many blessings and riches of His Kingdom. Some may think that there are many paths to Heaven, but there is only One who can offer the forgiveness of sins and offers eternal life-Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son.
 
This is fantastic read for all Christians, new believers and unbelievers alike, although not for those that wish to compromise the Word of God.  Sharing the truth of the Gospel, the author begins with the fall of man to the crucifixion of Jesus, the author builds upon scripture that are sure to leave an imprint on one’s soul.  Revealing truth, this is an amazing book giving clear understanding on what it means to be born again (born from above) with the spirit of wisdom and the spirit of revelation revealing truth in the Word, Jesus Christ and the new life Christ came to offer all who would believe.
 
A highly recommended read and inspiring, evangelistic guide to understanding the many blessings of Christ to bring about a better understanding of the Bible, repentance, and salvation that sheds light on many facets through the Bible about the crucifixion, the resurrection, the many testimonies surrounding the resurrection, the apostles, Pentacost, water baptism, the apostles, the baptism of the Holy Ghost, healing, the spiritual life, and so much more. 
 
The Foundation of Godliness and A Godly Life available at Amazon, in Kindle and elsewhere at fine online bookstores online.

CBM Christian Author Press Release 
KAMLOOPS, BRITISH COLUMBIA – Dana Goodman releases, In the Cleft: Joy Comes in the Mourning: A Story of Hope After Tragedy, ($14.47 paperback, 978-1498408745, $ 3.99 e-book, 1498408745).  A heart breaking and touching memoir through grief, Goodman gives hope through the darkest of times.  Experiencing the death of her late husband, young son and mother-in-law – all in one fail swoop, incredibly, her second husband’s cancer and young son’s diagnosis of an inoperable brain tumor came simultaneously.  As a desperate mother supporting her husband through his battle with cancer, she finds herself in a deep tunnel – angry at the God she loved.  Her book depicts the trial of faith all endured, including her family as they watched with horror, and dealt with something that was unthinkable.  In her desperation, Dana finds God, encounters His Spirit and is kept safe, as her world’s foundations were crumbling.  She learns to stand on the Rock, and His foundation, and gives testimony of His powerful love and strength that kept her through it all.  This touching memoir gives her account of the incredible grief of one mother that lost it all, yet lived to have hope and faith in God despite insurmountable circumstances.  Her journey will leave an indelible imprint upon your soul and reveals the “deeper” things of God and His love as Dana relates her powerful testimony that “Joy” can come after the mourning. 
Enduring the darkest of nights in the darkest of valleys, Goodman relates hope, humor and candor as she
gives flickers of light throughout her experience.  Taking time to breath and remember: the special moments tucked away in her heart with her son that led up to his last days, Dana exhibits the power of God through tragedy that can and will sustain one through deep grief.  As a mother, you will cry.  As a daughter, you will weep. As a grandmother or grandfather, times gone by will bring healing tears.  Yet, God can and will carry you through the dark night of the soul to the other side where there is life again.  She boldly proclaims that God is able, even when we run, He is ever faithful.   
Holding a Master’s Degree in counseling, Dana has worked in private practice for five years, specializing in grief counseling and family therapy. Dearly believing that all need to see the beauty in life, she relishes moments with her own family and loves contemplating life through writing, her Bible and a latte.  As a licensed grief counselor, Dana Goodman, wants readers to know – God cares, He can be trusted, relied upon and He can get you through the darkest night of the soul. Those broken places can be healed, joy can come again and dreams can come alive again.  This book is a must-read for anyone who has been devastated by cancer or a tragedy, like death, that they can’t seem to get past.

Greetings,

I humbly welcome you into this peculiar deepening journey where words are more than what they seem.


Magic? Indeed.

Follow the Timeless Mystical adventure of six Characters as they Alchemically face the Darkest perils of the Human psyche and Search for the Truth . . .

“It is brilliant! . . . The Author had me on the first few pages and I found the entire book to be a truly inimitable literary experience. It is a study in human nature, with a bit of philosophy, spirituality, some theology, all in a wonderful mix of fiction. Their journey of discovery is not unlike the search for enlightenment. The book contains many undercurrents of the search for truth, mindfulness and being fully conscious of the present moment. I must repeat, a truly rare and distinctive presentation of a much written about topic. Highly Recommended.”
