5 Things About Author Beth Grisham

posted on

Learn more about your favorite Ambassador authors with our “Five Things” series. Author Beth Grisham compiled  inspirational true life stories in  “Seeds of Perspective: Planting Hope and Healing In The Baggage Of Life.”

Beth Grisham is a wife, mother, and non-profit ministry leader.  Beth graduated from the University of North Alabama with a Bachelor of Science in Communications. However, she believes her greatest education came through her role as mother to her six children, now thirteen to twenty-five years old.  After working at home for 17 years Beth became the Executive Director of a non-profit crisis pregnancy center.   She prayed to receive Christ at age eighteen, but it wasn’t until age twenty-six with the loss of her third child that Beth developed a personal relationship with Christ and fell in love with studying His Word.

Her loss was the beginning of a whole new way of life and a totally different perspective regarding things of importance in this world.  It has been said that your greatest ministry will come from your greatest pain, and that has certainly proven itself true in Beth’s life.  She considers motherhood and the raising up of a next generation of Christ followers to be her greatest blessing and her greatest opportunity to make a Kingdom impact on the world.

Here are Beth’s “five things”:

  1. The miscarriage of her third child opened Beth’s eyes to the horrible realities of abortion.
  2. Beth has a desire to become involved in international missions so that she can help women in other countries find ways to support and care for their families.
  3. Beth helped to start a coffee roasting business as a means of raising funds for the non-profit that she oversees, with an even greater goal of seeing that business grow to support centers just like theirs across the U.S. She firmly believes that when we are blessed it is so that we can bless others in return.
  4. Beth and her husband of twenty-eight years have five daughters and one son.
  5. God uses nature to inspire many of His lessons for Beth. She especially loves birds, trees, and butterflies.

Seeds of Perspective by Beth GrishamWhat if your greatest downfall could be redeemed to become your greatest calling? In Beth’s new book Seeds of Perspective: Planting Hope and Healing In The Baggage Of Life, gain a new perspective about old baggage that has kept you from experiencing freedom in Christ and from pursuing the purpose God has for your life.  Let the experiences of others remind you that you are not alone, and that God can use all things for your good and His glory.

Just Who Was St. Patrick?

posted on

It’s a question we all ask ourselves on the one day that we’re all Irish. Except for those pesky orange-wearers.

We all wear green and say funny things like “top ‘o the mornin’ to ya!” But have you ever wondered what’s at the root of St. Patrick’s Day? Journey back to the early part of the 5th century, a time we knew little about until the discovery of Saint Patrick’s writings, through the pages of Saint Patrick: The Man & His Mission.

SaintPatrick

Those writings provide a vivid picture of this faithful man, offering a voice from the distant past, spreading hope and joy. You’ll be amazed to discover the real St. Patrick. And here’s a hint: it has nothing to do with corned beef, cabbage or even leprechauns! Pick up Saint Patrick: The Man & His Mission to learn more about the man and missionary so oft-celebrated yet misunderstood in the modern world.

Fire & Life Safety Instructor Releases New Children’s Book in Safety Series

posted on

In the first book in her new children’s series, Fraidy Brady and the First Field Trip, fire and life safety instructor Maria Bostian addresses the fears that many young children might have on their first field trip.

“Most kittens were curious. Most kittens were downright nosey. Most kittens loved to go to new places and do new things. But not Brady! Everything new seemed to make him anxious. He was different. All the kittens knew him as Fraidy Brady,” writes Bostian, focusing on the feelings that many kids have when experiencing the unknown.

Through the eyes of a literal scaredy cat, Bostian walks kids through many possible scenarios that could happen on a field trip. Drawing from her own knowledge as a fire and life safety instructor, Bostian gives tips on how to handle strangers, what to do if you get lost, and how to identify safe adults. She even includes a quick guide at the back of the book to remind children of the “Stranger Safety Tips” she mentions throughout the book.

Parents and children will enjoy reading the light-hearted story together, but it’s also a great opportunity for parents to talk to their children about safety and what to do in scary situations.

Transformed Thinking: A Defense of the Christian Worldview

posted on

Dr. Tom Wheeler grew up in a pastor’s home and received Christ as Lord and Savior as a child. He attended Christian college and then completed a Ph.D. in theology. He taught Bible and theology classes for a number of years in a Bible College and seminary and taught Bible classes in a Christian high school for a few years.

In his new book, Transformed Thinking: A Defense of the Christian Worldview, Dr. Tom Wheeler clearly lays out the most fundamental beliefs of Christianity and compares them to other worldviews, providing arguments to support his beliefs. Even though this book is purposed for the classroom setting, it would be a beneficial read for any believer who wants to have a firm foundation on which to share their beliefs with unbelievers.

From the beginning of the world to the inerrancy of Scripture, Transformed Thinking will provide you with solid answers for your faith because in today’s world of varying religions, it’s becoming more and more important for a Christian to know what they believe and why they believe it.

A Sanctuary in Our Midst: Christmas Reflections on Jesus by Karen L. Straszheim

Available November 12, 2019

A Sanctuary in Our MidstAmidst the checklists and social engagements for the Christmas season, Karen Straszheim writes for the weary Christian who gets lost in the holiday madness.

By placing a strong emphasis on spiritual rest, Straszheim’s Christmas devotional is divided into eleven chapters that collectively call for the Christian to put their shopping bags down and just rest in the Scriptures. A Sanctuary in Our Midst: Christmas Reflections on Jesus is deeply enriched with Scripture references throughout to exemplify how the Old and New Testament compliment each other, and how we can understand the Bible.

A Sanctuary in Our Midst is perfect for studying in a group or individually: the discussion questions could be talked about all together over hot cocoa or be used to quietly reflect on in one’s own time. Either way, this devotional is a sanctuary in and of itself.

Our Top Picks for a Chilling Read!

posted on

Do you enjoy books that bring chills to your spine and keep you from falling asleep at night? Look no further, Ambassador International’s staff picked our top three titles to do just that for you!

Staff Pick

1. Clear Confusion by Kathy Howard

What am I going to do, God? Who am I?

Charlotte Hallaway needs to come to terms with her father’s death. He had been her only family, and she wasn’t handling her grief well. It was just supposed to be a few weeks of peace and quiet to process it all, but then she saw them-a drug deal and a murder within seconds of each other.

And they saw her.

Now running for her life, Charlotte boards a bus to escape her pursuers and wakes up the next morning in the woods of Jennings, Georgia, without a memory of how she got there or of who she is. All she knows is an underlying fear she can’t seem to shake.

When two hunters find her battered and scared, can she put aside the clear confusion she’s experiencing to trust them? She wants to trust them, especially Nicholas, but fear is holding her back. Trust is incredibly hard when one is so clearly confused. Could it be he and his friend are not who they claim to be?

Who are they really . . . and who is she?

2. Fate of the Redeemed by Chad Pettit

An angel with amnesia. A demon with a vendetta. The man caught in their crossfire.

Lester Sharp has been given a second chance to live a life of compassion, but his decision to follow God will be tested when his estranged father calls to tell him his brother has been killed in combat. A demon unleashes a series of attacks on him, and someone he thought was lost to his past emerges.

Lester is guarded by the angel, Draven, but when Morane catches the watcher off his guard, Draven loses his memory and finds himself being held prisoner in a remote Somali village. His only ally is Ibrahim, a man who finds out his son has been murdered by extremists when his granddaughter appears out of nowhere and somehow possesses supernatural powers.

As Morane’s fury is unleashed, time is running out for Lester, and Draven’s fate is in the hands of a man whose faith is being pushed to the limit.

While Lester fights for his life—and for his soul—will he make the right choices, or will he decide—once and for all—that he doesn’t need God? And why is one man so important in the midst of spiritual warfare?

3. Hope by Josephine Walker

After two and a half years of deep depression, anger at God, and guilt over the death of her husband and twin girls, all bestselling romance writer Jessica Lynn Morgan wants is to buy a house, get back to writing, and live out her life alone in peace. And the little town of Hope, Wyoming, seems to offer the peace she needs. Or does it?

Unfortunately, her dream house is rumored to be haunted. Not one to believe in ghosts, she fights for any logical explanation for the things happening that seem to warn her off.

Once she moves in, the threat against her life becomes real. Clearly, someone or something wants her out. Now. And her stubbornness could cost Jessica her life.
