Description

“I am not preaching a new way of life or some secret that has been hidden from the rest of the world until now. All I want to do is offer HOPE. No mumbo jumbo, secret messages, chanting in a mirror or joining some new age movement of controlling the masses…just HOPE. HOPE in yourself and BELIEVING that no matter what life throws at you…NEVER GIVE UP. Never give up hope in you… hope in life… hope in the world.â€? Author: Debbie H. Alger What People Are Saying: “We create an opportunity to make meaning of our life when we find the courage to tell our story. Debbie courageously has laid out for the reader, her journey from darkness and abuse to a richer, more fulfilling life. In doing so, she creates hope for the disfranchised…the abused, the violated, the diminished, the co-dependent… for every one of us who has suffered from the careless words and deeds of others. A powerful story of courage, healing and hope. Elizabeth Krupp, R.P.C., M.P.C.P. (retired) “Debbie’s journey through abuse, neglect and self-doubt to a place of hope, peace and harmony is an inspiration for all of us with our own challenges.â€? Vivian Jacula, B.Ed. “This courageous work, NO MORE SECRETS, offers us a glimpse into one woman’s guided journey into the light. It is a true inspiration to all seeking to connect with their higher-self.â€? Donna Lahoda, Co-creator of Abundance in Action

    Karen October 2019Promises....promises...

    The Promise in The Void is a remarkable book, covering two continents, and a number of human emotions and struggles following WWII, including loss of a homeland, and insecurities and hardships while struggling to establish a new life and new friends in a strange country. There are disconnections throughout the book, and the characters must learn how to deal with, and live with, PTSD, as a result of battle fatigue. This is a book about romance – not only romance between a man and a woman, but romance of a young family in a new country.

    The title itself lends to a wonderment about the fulfillment of this promise. Perhaps the void is referring to the vast distant prairies which, on first glance, do not offer much of a promise for a future with a young family. Will this couple rise to the challenge, and keep their family together through thick and thin?

    A good imagination and a box of kleenexes all combine to make this a very satisfying read.

    Learn to TeachI love this book enough to actually go and find it and write a review about it.

    I feel like that should say enough, but for more:

    The author actually taught teachers in his life, he has a great view about how people act and react, why they are the way they are and how you can understand that to help you get your point across to them easier.

    Simple message for tough timesWhile it's unfortunate this message is needed today, I'm glad this book can provide a potentially life saving message to our most vulnerable demographic.

    The Author does a wonderful job presenting what is taught to adults in a manner respectful of a child's understanding of the world and the threat itself.

    The fact a more than qualified person wrote the material, only lends credibility and comfort to whomever purchases this book.

    Do yourself and your loved ones a favor and purchase this book. Take the time to read it with them and explain it's message. I know my nephews will be better off for it!

    5 starAs a parent of 2 kids under the age of 10, our family found this book well written and easy for the kids to understand. It's a topic you can't ignore in todays homes, so it is best we set our kids up with the information they need, and this book does it well. It would be great if the schools would invest in a few copies:)

    Deeply movingWorking slowly, and thoughtfully through this journal has been an eye opening journey. The questions posed throughout this journal create a space for a deep and meaningful examination of belief systems, blocks, and lifelong goals. The chapters are layed out beautifully and flow from one area of life to another seamlessly.
    It's like having an unfiltered and raw conversation with yourself. No judgement, no pretenses, just pure honesty.

    Primal Power The Unripe Apple was given to me at my mother's memorial. I loved fantasy movies, but a book in that genre had never been my choice. Major changes were happening in my life and I needed an escape so I gave it a try. To my surprise I couldn't put it down! The book had mystery, magic, fear, love, friendship, joy, strength, courage, and I loved it! It seems laced with pearls of wisdom and I find myself rereading parts of it and always finding more insights. The characters within this book resonated with the strength within my own soul and have given me the courage to move forward, thank-you!

    No one, especially a young child should have to deal with the consequences of an accidental gun shot. At nine years old, the author of this well written memoir was robbed of a youth, most of us take for granted.
    Hospitalized miles from family and their farm, she woke and was told because of a severed spinal cord she would never walk again.
    This is an inspiring story of determination and bravery, and how they shaped her as a person.
    How she never gave up on her dream to own horses, ride, and to live on a farm again. How her love and ability for training dogs enhanced her life with many special companions that also served a purpose.
    Reading this proves animals can make life worth living.

I always missed my name being called because I could not put the book down! I cried, I laughed and most of all i was inspired, blessed and motivated by Walter’s story! I could literally hear him telling the story only the way Walter can, exception speaker! I thought this man over came this battle , my battle is with cancer, if he can do this I can surely overcome my battle through prayer! God is always with us even when we feel he is not! Thank you Walter for sharing your story , your life ! Many blessings my friend!

    It's been said that life is a journey and that there is a ‘road’ each of us must travel. Why that road seems to be darker and harder for some is something we may never fully understand. Walter has been on a challenging road. In this book “Sovereign Child” Walter openly shares his experience, and as he discovered for himself, there is a light at the end of that tunnel! That, in spite of the pain we have been through in the past, there is hope for tomorrow, and that we can step into that hope today!

    If you have opportunity to meet Walter and get to know him, you will begin to appreciate the truth of the words found in Romans 8:28 - “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” (NIV)

    Walter has found his purpose. Once a ‘prisoner’ of the past, he’s been released in new freedom through the transformative grace and power of Jesus Christ. Thank you Walter for sharing this story - your story of inspiration and hope.

    "Promise in the Void", is a novel that I very much looked forward to read, especially when Rebekah had told me about the journey she had after receiving the instruction to publish it.
    Although not a "war bride "per se, I found many aspects of the story, similar to being a "settler on the prairies" myself. Settling down in a culture with its customs and norms which are very different, but in some ways, very similar. More so, it taught me to trust and appreciate "the hand of support and friendship". Coping with all the challenges and joyous moments that a farm brings - total reliance on God and coping with extreme weather conditions, working hard to provide for the animals for the upcoming Winter. As the wife of an x-soldier, it also confirms and explains the emotional aftermath and scars of a war on soldiers, but overcoming it and healing over time and much love. The novel is well written, as it kept me intrigued from the beginning until the end. I highly recommend this novel to all. I’m sure it will also bring back fond memories to second and third generation “immigrants.”

    . Wow ! I missed my stop because I was so engrossed on this book. BROKEN BUT BLESSED " Eunice sincerely and truthfully bared her life experience which I described as can only be possible through the touching Grace of God. It goes a long way to confirm that every journey of life is for a reason to trust God more even when you cannot see It is well written and easy to read The clarity of the message is so Godly.

    Wow... what an amazing story! Eunice leaves herself vulnerable to the reader by exposing the darkest depths of her life. She uses her testimony to encourage and uplift others with the assurance that God is ever patient and always waiting to pick up the broken pieces and heal you. Eunice's story is a wonderful mix of testimony, Scripture references, and life lessons along the way. I highly recommend this book to anyone whose life seems to be falling apart, who is seeking for answers as to why things always seem wrong. As her book clearly states, you will discover that for every pain there's a purpose. As she takes you along on her journey through the pages, you will undoubtedly travel your own life journey realizing that you - as she is - are "Broken But Blessed."

    If you want Raw Real Truth, Walter has given it to the world in its fullest. Knowing Walter as Mr. T a teacher ( my favorite teacher) I would have never known or guessed the harsh brutal torturous situations he was put through his entire life.
    He was nothing but a positive inspiration to me the day I met him. I was very intrigued to learn more about this power soulful man I looked up to and to be honest his story did not fall short of amazing .
    I was captivated each page as the chapters continued. I felt sadness, anger, despair, abuse, loneliness, abandonment and for a very short moment happiness fill with the Holy Spirit and all God has to offer his children .
    His words were real and naked there was no sugar coating of the truth, no embarrassment in the story to hide details. It's the true trials and tribulations of a solider who found his creator and I could not be more proud of any person willing to open the doors of there demons to the world ! In that is honor and love .
    So much of what we learn about love is taught from people who never really loved us and this is what I see in this wonderful man. Wisdom and knowledge willing to share and help anyone willing to listen and open the door to Gods beauty.
    If you tell the truth it becomes apart of your past, if you lie/hide it becomes apart of your future - freedom is all I see for Walters future and this book will save many people and open many eyes to the beauty of honesty and love in God.
    I have and will continue to share this book with whom ever can read it's a life story that needs to be shared . Amen for Gods grace. 5 stars hands down .

    This was a book that I couldn't put down. I read it from cover to cover in one sitting. I was riveted and heartbroken at all the abuse faced by a young Walter. I was saddened at how he at times tried to cope with all the heartache, albeit unhealthy ways. But I cried rejoicing tears at God's handiwork, He never let go of Walter! Very thankful for Walter to have the obedience to write this most painful recount of his past, it will truly help many people dealing with an abusive past, heartache and despair. God is good! There is no denying His existence when you read this book. I pray for all people who read this book and need healing from such horrors of life. The path is there, this redemptive story of love will help. Our God is a GREAT BIG GOD!

    a real rags to richesIt is truly remarkable to read a story of redemption like this one. A story that is wrought with despair and hopelessness, amongst horrible abuse, and ends with hope, healing and adoption into the royalty of the King of Glory. We have known Walter from his time in St. Paul and I read the book just before he came and spoke at our church. What a difference an encounter with "the King" can make in a person's life. While reading I could tell that there was a big difference after His encounter at the healing service that day. In person, the evidence is astounding. Way to go Jesus! Keep your eyes on your King, Walter.

    SOVEREIGN CHILDI definitely would recommend this Book to anyone that has suffered from any form of abuse whether it is physical, mentally , physiological, sexually. That there is a true God that can walk with you through thick or thin and that you don't have to walk alone. Too put all the pain can be put at the foot of the cross. No one deserves to be abused. There is light and joys that can be experience. This book can give you hope and enlightenment.

My wife and I recommend this book highly and would also encourage to have Walter as a guest speaker as to prisons, schools ,institutions ,churches ,recovery of any kind .This speaks to all on many levels and no one will be left empty .It's a chain breaker thousands upon thousands will be challenged and moved to Break The Chain

    Mind-blowingI've known Walter for a few years now. I was excited to read his book; we've talked and I knew some of his story. But this... nothing prepares you for reading this. If it was a journey to read (and it was!) I can't even imagine what it was to actually live. As his friend, reading this had a deep impact on me. Anger at what was done to him, sadness for what he did to himself, yet praise for what God did for him and what I expect God to do through him. Walter is indeed living proof of Psalm 40:2: "He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand."

    For those struggling with identity, with addiction, with loneliness, with depression, you need to read this book. This is not only one man's testimony of his life, it is a testament to the abundant grace of God that He pours out LIBERALLY to those who earnestly seek Him. If you want answers to life's questions and solutions to life's problems, the Bible is the way to get them and if you're not convinced, read Walter's story. For any skeptic who thinks "there isn't a God," you need to read this book. For anyone who thinks "God doesn't care about me," you need to read this book. It will not only change your mind, it can be the doorway that leads to restoration and transformation through a relationship with Jesus Christ. It will take the blinders off your eyes so you can actually SEE truth around you, and once you see truth, as Walter describes in his own journey, you can walk the path of truth to its ultimate and purposeful end: eternal relationship with Jesus Christ.

    I so appreciate that Walter not only had the guts to share his story, but that he was obedient when God asked him to write it. I cannot even conceive of how hard it was to write, nevermind live through. If you need more proof of the redeeming and sustaining power of Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit, this book provides it.

    CourageI have known Walter for over 20 years, when I met him, he was hilarious, always the clown but professional when he had to be. We worked together for about 5 years in Alberta and then life happens and people lose a bit of touch, luckily through facebook we were still able to chat once in awhile. Through facebook I could tell in the last 10-15 years there was some deep stuff going on within him...... but being so far away I would never know the truth or extent of it till the birth of his book, " The Soverign Child".

    Wow, how does one person live to tell of this horrific upbringing and then turn into such a Stellar Individual....... I asked him..... GOD, he said. Although I am not a deeply religious person, I truly believe that if Walter and God would have not found each other, he would not be the guy he is today.
    When I started reading this book, it didn't go down till I was done...... you just can't put it down, just when you think it can't get any worse for him .... it does....

    So raw and well written......

    MiraculousWhile Sovereign Child is a factual account of one man’s journey and discovery, the story is so incredible that it often reads like a fictional novel. It’s gritty, extremely intense, raw and emotional. How one man could have endured so much yet came through it all perfectly whole and perfectly healed can only be described in one word….miraculous. The book is an amazing read, and perfectly reveals the love God has for his child Walter and the love God has for EACH of us.

    MiraculousHow else can you describe the transformation that occurred in Walter's life. Not only was in hard to fathom theincredible difficulties that he experienced through his lifetime, but it is almost incomprehensible to imagine how he could recover when "dealt such a difficult hand". Sovereign Child is a story of heartbreak and despair but also of freedom and inspiration. As you turn the pages you keep thinking "how much more can one person handle". Then by God's grace the narrative changes dramatically and the reader is captivated by one of the most miraculous endings that you can imagine. You may experience tears, you may experience anger but all will experience exhilaration as Walter's story concludes. This is a story our world needs to hear.

    Brave!Writing this book must have been an incredibly hard (yet incredibly brave!) thing for Walter to do. It was sad, joyful, terrible and uplifting..... It shows that nothing is too big for our God! I've known Walter for years and the best part was that I could hear his voice in my head while reading; his personality definitely shines through!

    I know that God will use Walter's testimony to help others, to be transformed in the same miraculous way that God changed his life..... I know that God right now is saying to him, "well done, my good and faithful servant."

    Reviewed by A Wonderful Story for Kids & Adults!, 20/06/16

    The Kingdom of Thrim is a wonderful children's story that teaches the lesson of what happens when we don't consult God before making decisions. The main character, Yoj is a happy and loved man in his town who makes dolls. One day, a stranger comes into town and gives Yoj the opportunity to make more money than what he was making. Without consulting God, friends or family Yoj jumps at the chance and follows the stranger. He is taken from his beautiful and colorful world into a dark and gray world. It is here he realizes what he left behind and how much more important his joy, friends and relationships are than money.


    There is such an important lesson here for both adults and children. The illustrations are gorgeous, and the author is also the illustrator! There are even activities included to do with your child after reading the book like making your own Kingdom of Thrim out of Lego and even sock puppets! My sons who are 4 and 6 years old enjoyed the story very much. I would highly recommend this book! It is a wonderful family read. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    “Michael Wiens has written a passionate, comprehensive, engaging account of the Ruby-throated Hummingbird and how to attract these fascinating birds into your yard. Wiens masterfully employs the language of the streets, where baby Hummingbirds are described as featherless "flying meatballs," a certain mangy looking Hummingbird is painted as something that looks like "a neighborhood cat coughed up," the mating ritual leads the female to fall "beak over tail feathers" in love, and juvenile Hummingbirds are depicted as racing from flower to flower as though "they have a serious case of ADD." Descriptions like these and others will entertain, amuse and have you smiling as you learn everything you need to know about the Ruby-throated Hummingbird and how to make them a guest in your own garden. Jewel of the North by Michael Wiens represents nature as it was meant to be experienced—raw, gritty and oozing with passion.”—Wolfgang Carstens

    This is an intriguing memoir, written through the eyes of a young girl who lived in Germany during the years from 1939 to 1948. Seldom have we had a child’s perspective on how war came unexpectedly to her person and her family. Not only does this perspective fit a current literary niche, but this slim volume of 109 pages also holds the reader’s attention from beginning to end. This is a “must read” book!
    The narration begins with a family that lives in Dusseldorf, and spends a couple of summers camping outside the city, where Inge and her siblings explore, build sand castles and pick flowers- idyllic scenes. Descriptions are vivid and colourful: “ Ever since then I have loved the moaning sound of foghorns. It invokes in me memories of long summers on the banks of the river Rhine. Today had been one of those glorious sunny days of my early childhood, the memory of which has stayed with me all my life.” And suddenly, the beauty of nature, the bliss of childhood, is changed when war is declared. How do children deal with war? What does war even mean to a little girl whose life until that point was secure, has been joyful and adventurous? This is a story about a family impacted by world events that changed their lives in a very dramatic way.
    We Were Children is written by the youngest child in that family: through her eyes,we experience how a German family with four children is drawn into a world war they did not start, but had to survive with strength, perseverance and inventiveness. The love and determination of Inge’s parents to protect their children in turbulent times, makes this a universal story. War and violence, which are politically motivated, affect innocent families on both sides of conflict : it is they who are the “collateral damage” of indiscriminate violence. In telling the story, a statement is made and a witness is given on this theme, yet it is told with clarity, careful attention to detail; with wit that shows the personality of the author. in describing personal behaviours and responses to the world she lived in, Inge has both a poetic style of writing and a wonderful command of language.

    This an absolutely delightful book. Written in a simple style that reflects the era, the story moves along quickly and is filled with with adventure. The characters are real and engaging but it is the spirit of love and honour that makes this book so addictive. Once you start you won't want to put it down and yet you won't want it to end!
    The Spotted Horse is a timeless love story and a timely illustration of the out working of God's love amongst people of different racial and cultural backgrounds.

    Yvonne's work is an unbiased historical fiction, descriptively and powerfully written. What a photographer does with his camera, Yvonne does with words. The story reveals the lives of early white immigrants settling into Blackfoot lands. I am impressed with Yvonne's ability to develop characters with fairness, strength and respect. Yvonne is an artist with words, a unique and powerful writer.
    I firmly believe The Spotted Horse should become mandatory reading in the Public School System as well as the Aboriginal Education System.

    Another lovely series of short "bedtime stories" by Mr. Faltin. This one will keep you up long past your bedtime! What I loved most about this book was how it draws YOU into the narrative, by using the term 'you', and close descriptions of the world of the story. It really does feel that you are part of this world of Bobo and family. The dog characters are among my favorites in the series, as the anecdotes remind all of us dog-owners about our special memories with our pets: running after strange and mysterious 'things in the woods', eating everything they shouldn't, and generally getting up to all kinds of mischief! My husband and I have had a lot of fun reading through the series, and intend to get more than one copy to give to nephews and nieces for birthdays and Christmas presents. Better make it Christmas: this is great source of enchantment set in the Canadian "winter wonderland"!

    Munchkin, Pumpkin, Bobo...say what you like about Mr. Faltin's great series of short, canine-centric stories, but he sure knows how to name a dog! This is my third review of his books, because I really think he deserves a written-out look at his work, such as I can provide. Bobo Gets a Big Surprise was probably my favorite of the series, both because it talks about Faltin's family in a closer way, that really makes us fall in love with the family dynamics (and doggy dynamics too!), and because it weaves the world of the dogs and the world of the humans into two seemingly parallel worlds. The dogs are always scampering off, living their own lives encountering the flora and fauna of the Canadian tundra, while the humans work on practical concerns involving family and the property (let's just say the cabin is not quite invincible). Congrats to Faltin for working through this personal and yet universal series of tales about the lives of real Canadians. And for Pete's sake, buy yourself a copy: are you a Canadian or what? :)

    My husband bought me all three of these for my birthday this year, and I thought I'd make some quick reviews for each. Bobo and the Wolf is a great little series of tales about the author's dogs, and family, in the Canadian woods. There are lots of memorable stories here, and I particularly liked the references to other books ("Maybe you already heard the story called Bobo’s Cabin, and maybe you did not..."). The frequent use of photographs help to tell the stories, introducing us to the characters in a very immediate and welcoming way. The best word for this book is "charming". It doesn't have the moralizing nonsense of many similar stories, but instead immerses you in a rustic world where everything is snow, (over-)excited dogs, and family. Truly Canadian!

    I am Raine Turner's son. Although this story is about my experience suffering a brain injury, it is a story that I imagine many can relate to. It is a story about how when we fall into tough times, we must stay strong and continue to move forward - fighting and never giving up. It is a story about the love of a mother for her son. I am certain i would not have recovered as well as i did, or possibly have survived, without that love. It is a story that exemplifies a society so wrought up in external appearances, we sometimes forgot that these people are just human beings, and compassion can go a long way. Finally, it is a story about a higher power, or whatever you want to call it, who will help even the lowest of the low because of its divine love.
