  • Moses, God and the Plagues- A Pharaoh's View on Sep. 15, 2012
    (no rating)
    I enjoyed this brief story. It left me wanting more! I fanatized about the next chapter. What would the Pharaoh's spirit think about Moses in the wilderness? I would like to see what this author writes next.
  • Scriptural Rosary #1 - According to Thy Word on Nov. 27, 2013
    (no rating)
    My thanks to Mr. Klazura for a very useful compilation of Scripture verses to aid contemplation of the rosary mysteries. These verses can be prayed without a rosary, if desired, but I recommend praying these Scriptures along with the rosary. May this book be a blessing to many readers!
