An Author’s World View Impacts Your Children’s Minds.

October 1, 2014 by

Recently, I was told by a friend that my book home page should have just images of my books since those are my products. (She sells ballet skirts.) But I realize that she and I sell two different products that have totally different impact on a person’s mind. If you bought a skirt and tried it and didn’t like –either for yourself or for your kids, it’s easy to do a reverse—either return the skirt for a refund, or give it away to Goodwill. You might argue that it could be the same with books. Technically, yes. But psychologically ...

ISIS, Islam and forced conversions today.

September 16, 2014 by

We are fortunate to be living in the USA where we have the right to have the freedom to believe in whatever faith we wish--as long as we don't go around killing people and being a nuisance to society.

The military career of Muhammad lasted for the final ten years (622-632 AD) of his life when he served as the leader of the ummah at Medina.

Islam began at the point of the word and continued as one conquests after another terrorized scared individuals to believe in the Islamic tenets or face death. Below ...
