For all accounts and purposes the life of one dog shouldn't make that much of a difference, but this life did. Faith's life began without hope and without love. Having been rescued by Reuben Stringfellow at the age of three weeks, Faith's life took a dramatic turn. Completely unable to function as a normal dog, it was up to the Stringfellow family to create in Faith a means to function as best she could. This is the definitive book on the life of Faith the Dog. Her life story is one for the history books. In fact, her story appears in scholastic text books in several countries! Courage, perseverance, dogged-determination, and a generally great disposition is what it took for Faith to become who and what she is today: "A Modern Day Miracle".

It's A Faith Walk is a timely and urgent call to awaken the hearts of every Christian to grab God's hand and go forth on a Faith Walk with our Lord, and inspire and encourage fellow Faith Walkers so God's specific purpose predestined for you, to fulfill upon in your lifetime, shall be realized in your lifetime. Bishop George Dallas McKinney It's A Faith Walk is a journey God orchestrated after preparing me enough to get out of the whale Jonah found himself in so I could experience living in awe and wonder each step of the way. Since God started with a card-carrying, pew-warming, protestant denominational gal, there was a lot of preparation which needed to take place! God's training prior to being sent did not stop when God orchestrated travel since I was sent 'without an extra coin or tunic' and God arranged personal introductions before I arrived and confirmed plans after I showed up, plus, there was a lot of 'on the job training' and 'filling me as an empty vessel' with exact words precisely when they were needed. Like many who have asked me, I wanted to see the signs, wonders and miracles. I did not realize it was my limited human understanding which was blocking the experience! Before the journey, my prayer requests were merely words about what I want God to do. Sad, but I was focused upon exactly what and how I expected God to proceed, to 'get it done and also do it all for me.' I never saw my prayers from God's perspective. As soon as I did, everything I had prayed up to that point sounded lame. Not an easy realization to comprehend. God had to show me that we do not know his word or that his promises are true, so we are not able to begin to comprehend the glorious things God has 'in store for us.' We have a very limited, human view of our life. I pray that changes for God has a God sized view of our life. His plans for us are big. It is painful to hear so many people state the church, the body of Christ, is still in the pre-toddler phase and not walking yet, only hoping to hear a good word on Sunday that will carry the people through the week. I trust this is why God has shown me how much he has planned for us and why we need to operate as bible based and spirit-filled believers. The first time I heard that, I did not know the difference between the churches. Without God's guidance, we lack the ability to comprehend or act on God's plan for our life. I pray you will lean on God's word and the guidance of the Holy Spirit and not on your own understanding. A dear man of God told me he asked God to show him “Who is this woman?” God's vision of me showed how the mouse is to the elephant (body of Christ). I was so persistent, shouting for the elephant to move, but, I was ignored. Plus, during all attempts while I was biting on the back ankles, swinging on the tail and shouting, “Move,” even as I ran to the left ear, bit the ear and shouted. But, I would not stop there. I ran to the right ear, bit the ear many times and shouted until the elephant took the first step. God showed him my effort caused the body to move. Encouraged, since I have met with many leaders in the body and I've shared God's deep concerns about the body not being equipped and trained so we can grow to maturity. We are to be wise as serpents. Not to participate with them, merely to know what they are doing. Example: Check with spell check. It only recognizes demonizing or demonized not discipling or discipled. As the body of Christ, we have a lot of work to do! God has been clear, we need to be equipped and trained to faith walk as an Ambassador of our Lord Jesus Christ! May the words I share based upon all God has shown to me, bless and encourage you to go on a faith walk with God walking in power in authority utilizing your gifts, talents, skills and abilities to bless the people God directs you to. Then, share your testimony with me and all in the world who have ears to hear. Sheila Holm

Faith Love and Word
Author: Apostle Prophetess Helen Clement
I call faith, love, and the word my three musketeers. Our confidence and assurance is knowing we can always come to God by faith through Christ Jesus. Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is the only way to the Father. The ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ is that of love, mercy, and being compassionate to all that came seeking Him. Love is what the kingdom of God is based upon. We can never move mountains unless we have love in our hearts and unless there is an overflow of love in us. The word is Spirit and those who live in the Spirit receive the word and they rejoice. Just like the brain power of the human body so too is the word of God. Without the brain, there is no life. The body is dead. Faith, Love, and Word is a book about the Lord Jesus expounding on His word. May God through Christ Jesus open the eyes of our understanding and quicken our spirit to receive His word in Jesus’s mighty name we pray. Amen.
Sand between my toes, the salt air wrapping around me like a warm, summer blanket, the crashing of waves, and the meeting of sky and water. The beach is where I see the handiwork of God. As a young child, it was there that I wished that I could walk on the water as Jesus and Peter had in Matthew 14. It was there that I learned of faith, the faith that requires you to not only step out of the boat but also to focus on Jesus and learn to walk toward Him daily. It is not enough to just get out of our comfort zones, but now we need to learn to grow and walk toward Him constantly. The Faith to Walk on Water takes a look at why standing still in our faith is no longer an option, how doubt and fear are overcome by Jesus. He does not watch from a distance, but He is always there holding out His hand for us to take hold. So what are you waiting for? Take that step, and walk on the water!
