In <i>My People, the Amish</i>, Joe Keim paints a detailed picture of life behind the bonnets and buggies. More than a biography, this is an honest look at the heart-warming traditions that mingle with the deep-rooted legalism of the Amish community in Ashland, Ohio.<br /><br />Born, raised, and baptized in an Old Order Amish church, from childhood Joe Keim was taught that if he didn’t follow the twenty-two-page ordinance letter that governed his community, there was no way he could get to heaven. What started as a path of rebellion led Joe and his wife Esther to a caring group of Englisher Christians who would love them like family and show them how to live out their new found faith in Jesus Christ. <br /><br />Nine months after their traditional Amish wedding, Joe and Esther left family and friends forever to live openly for Christ, and endured shunning and excommunication with bold faith. Since then, the Lord has brought many former Amish people to Joe and Esther for help. Because of their passion for the Amish people and with the support of fellow believers, they have brought biblical truth to thousands of Amish through the ministry they founded in 2000, Mission to Amish People (MAP).<br /><br /><b>About the Author</b><br />Joe Keim was born and raised in Ashland, Ohio. He married Esther Keim in 1986 and they left the Old Order Amish community in 1987. They have two grown children, Jonathan and Rachel. In 2001, Joe left his job as a tool and die maker for full-time ministry. The Keims travel all over the US, speaking in churches, as well as to hospital staff, to law enforcement, and at colleges, helping people understand how to communicate with the Amish.<br /><br />Through personal witness, home Bible studies, home prayer meetings, the Bible Club, <i>The Amish Voice</i>, and the Audio Ministry, the Keims want to see every Amish person hear the clear message of salvation. MAP offers counseling and protection to those who are victims of sexual, mental, and physical abuse. The ministry also provides help with needs such as getting a GED, obtaining a birth certificate, and finding a job. Through the Bible Club alone, they have seen more than 2,500 Amish make commitments for Christ.<br />

<b>The remarkable life and inspiring beliefs of a legendary peacemaker and liberator of India—in his own words.</b><br />  <br /><i>Remember that all through history, there have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they seem invincible. But in the end, they always fall. Always.</i><br />  <br /> In the story of his life from early childhood through 1921, Mohandas K. Gandhi candidly reveals his young investigations into sin and seeking atonement; the philosophy, art, and literature that influenced his thoughts and ideas; and his first experiences with politics and protest, which would provide the foundation for his nonviolent struggle for justice, equality, and Indian independence from the British Empire.<br />  <br /> Gandhi’s intention in setting down an account of his formative years was to clarify the spiritual principles by which he lived and to inspire individuals and movements in their quests for personal and political freedom. The timeless lessons to be derived from the autobiography of this dedicated seeker of truth and brilliant leader continue to resonate wherever freedom is challenged by tyranny.<br />  <br /><i>This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.</i>

<i>Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he has done unto my soul.</i> (Psalm 66:16) <br /><br />This is a short and honest account of how God demonstrated His exceeding great mercy to His unworthy servant, John Bunyan.<br />This story specifically tells how Bunyan was converted. John Bunyan was a companion of sin and was troubled by sin. He fought temptation and sin in his own strength and lost, and in despair he gave up hope of ever finding God’s mercy; but the Lord Jesus Christ at last delivered him from the guilt and terror that so often and so viciously troubled him.<br /><br />In addition to this, a short account of Bunyan’s call to the work of the ministry is told, along with the trials and trouble he encountered – including some of the difficulties he faced while in prison.<br /><br />This is all taken from his writings and is now published for the encouragement and support of others who are weak and tempted and need strength and hope and victory in Jesus.<br /><br /><b>About the Author</b><br />John Bunyan was born in November 1628, in Elstow, England. A celebrated English minister and preacher, he wrote <i>The Pilgrim’s Progress</i> (1678), the book that was the most characteristic expression of the Puritan religious outlook. His other works include doctrinal and controversial writings; a spiritual autobiography, <i>Grace Abounding</i> (1666); and the allegory, <i>The Holy War</i> (1682).<br />

We all get created by something or someone, by being in the sheets. Some of us were choosing. Sometimes we were chosen. Not knowing what victim we are while being created . Women To bear so much pain. To create something so precious and so small. Men to drop the seed to make it happen for us all. Some of us become the best creation by coming from sad stories, love stories, drama, and bad spells of a sinner. But something about the sheets, create something so powerful, and something so real that creates some type of situation or situations. Even the state of mind of emotions that are build inside. U never know what being in the sheets will lead up to. It started this way and ended up like this. Stories to follow..... Stories to be told……..stories that we hear, simply a story we have had ourselves. But somehow or someway, once your in the sheets, we become a victim. But what victim r u?, while in the sheets. Tell your story while I tell mines.Through it all, we all warned, given chances and freedom of free will, given instructions which is written in the Bible the way to live.Sometimes our own sadness come from our own beliefs and the decision to make that is upon our hearts. Sometimes we are giving a chance or chances to make a wise decision when knowing right from wrong. Forgiveness- Repentance and now Forgetting that Jesus forgives us through the power of God washing our sins away It all started but was written where we started and came from. Our beliefs come to real life when u are born not knowing.This was my test of my Faith, my trials and my tribulations that almost made me give up, when i lost all hope, being ashamed of where i came from, my back ground, running away from the one who loved me the most, God....

<p>Peter, by no means, comes close to writing near as much of the New Testament as either Paul or Luke. Even John wrote more Books of the Bible than Peter did. But there is just something about Peter, both in his life and in his writings that seems so easy for most people to associate with.</p><p>In this study, we will be looking closely at Peter, trying to see just what made Peter do and say the things that he did. Hopefully you will find something about Peter that you too can associate with in your own life. But even more so, hopefully you will come close to God through Jesus Christ as you study about the life of Peter.</p>

In the face of death, the hope of every man is put to the test. When one is dealing with the illness and death of a young boy, one seems to oscillate on the edge of incomprehensibility. Yet there are testimonies that enter the darkness of the mind like a ray of light and warm the hearts of those who have ceased to hope. The life of Carlo Acutis is one of these rays of light. Indeed, it was the light of a lightning bolt on a summer’s night that overcame the darkness of fear and meaninglessness and permitted us to see what there truly is beyond the night of life.
