Description : For too long God’s enemy has effectively separated the Church from the true Word of God and God’s appointed times. This has caused the Church to lack power and influence. Modern-day churches are shells of the original Church that turned the world upside down. The Power of the Original Church practically and biblically deals with the tragedy of how today’s churches are not as effective as they could be. You may ask, “Why should I care?” Until believers care about how powerful the Church is in their community and nation, the enemy will continue to take more and more souls from Heaven’s gates. You may not recognize your surroundings in the future if Christians don’t take a stand now. God’s way is about relationship and not religion. Through the Word of God you will be empowered, and truly the original Church can be restored in these days.
Description : Glorious Days and Nights is a personal account of the fifty-year career of jazz photographer Herb Snitzer, with a special focus on his years in New York City from 1957 to 1964. A photojournalist for Life, Look, and Fortune, Snitzer was the photo editor and later associate editor of the influential jazz magazine Metronome. During the 1960s, politics, race, and social strife and unrest swirled in Snitzer’s life as a working artist. But throughout the bus boycotts, demonstrations, civil and racial unrest, what remained constant for him was jazz. Snitzer recalls what it was like to go on the road with these musicians. His reflections run the gamut from serious meditations on his development as a young photographer working with musicians already of great stature to more conversational recollections of casual moments spent having fun with the jazz artists many of whom became close friends. This book includes Snitzer’s very best jazz photographs. He reveals the essences of the artists, their struggles, joys, and pains. A number of Snitzer’s jazz images have become iconic, including Louis Armstrong with the Star of David, Lester Young at The Five Spot Café in New York City, John Coltrane reflected in a mirror, Thelonious Monk with piano keys reflected in his sunglasses, and Miles Davis at Newport. With eighty-five black and white images of jazz giants, Glorious Days and Nights provides a long-awaited testimony to the friendships and artistry that Snitzer developed over his remarkable career.

Description : While preparing this book for publication, I really began to think of just how much The Journey became my purpose. When I first started writing poetry around 15 years ago, I was simply trying to find a way to describe the emotions that were consuming me within at the time. My friend of 22 years committed suicide on Nov 18, 1993. After writing poems afterwards for a couple years, I had decided to create a 100-page book in order to keep a promise IId made to Bill that his name would live on far past his death. Today this book marks the 10th edition since that first book. Follow Your Dreams, Someday They May Just Come True
