Robert D. Lewis (Bob) spent his early years as a youth minister, a youth evangelist, and a pastor. It was here that his study of Scripture and church administration took on serious dimensions. He also learned firsthand about the reality of church conflict.
Later in life, Lewis served as an executive director of an association of Baptist churches in the Greater Sacramento, CA, Area. Here he served as a denominational liaison, a church consultant, and a mediator of church conflicts and disputes.
One of his most helpful experiences was a season of communication training with Dr. John S. Savage, the founder and president of L.E.A.D. Consultants, Inc., for 25 years, and currently a senior consultant/trainer for th ... read more

Follow me on Twitter at KatyOConnor13
Katy O’Connor est une Franco-Américaine qui vit en Californie du Sud. Ses études de lettres lui ont donné le goût de jouer avec les mots et les registres. Celui d’enseigner aussi. Ses voyages lui ont inspiré plusieurs romans et nouvelles car elle croit que la vérité de la fiction est plus subtile que celle du document.
En 2009, elle publie un roman au Canada, Nature Morte, puis en 2011, elle publie « Crime au long cours » chez un éditeur français ; il s’ensuivra en 2012 une traduction en anglais, « Cruising with Death. »
Ses romans parlent de la société moderne: sophistiquée, rapace, violente mais toujours en mal de beauté et d’amour. Pourtant, elle préfère les histoires qui se termi ... read more

A self-proclaimed “woman in progress,” I am most passionate about creativity and the power of the written word. I see myself as something of a creative curator—a facilitator, if you will. I enjoy almost nothing more than piecing together smaller components (both tangible and abstract) and rearranging them until they meld into a larger, cohesive whole.
If I had to sum up what I’m all about in two words they would be: authentic storytelling. That’s the core of why I write, why I publish stories and why I teach others to write their story. I tell stories that challenge and inspire people to pursue the potential of their creativity; I nurture creativity by making space for exploring and showcasing creat ... read more

My life for 2 years has been a dark yet glorious struggle against the principalities and powers of this age. Interested in spirituality in my youth, I converted to Christianity a few years back. From Passover 2012 I had a series of experiences that woke me up to what is being called "the unleavened gospel." I hear the voice of YEHOVA, but the truth is not easy for mankind to bear. Please consider that my words, controversial though they are, are born dutifully and are not reflective of mere personal ambition. The prophet suffers for his craft, but man loves vain idols.

I have always had an interest in art and the many different ways and methods available to express thoughts, emotions and events. There have been paintings, poems and pieces of music that have stayed with me from the moment I experienced them. That is what I am endeavoring to share.
I have studied music, tried my hand at poetry and often sketch and draw to let out emotions and to create this story is sharing a personal aspect of myself.
