About the book

This book calls for a Repentance Revival through obedience to God and His Word. It outlines errors that colleges, professors, and pastors have allowed to creep into the church through the silence of leaders when it comes to the altering of God's Word. And, it exhorts everyone on how to fix this error by returning to the Presierved Word of God and imploring their churches and denominations to do the same.

His kids have loads of bitterness from his divorce. Grace has her own mixed feelings about him. She and Jimmy try learn to love family members - all with issues of their own - as Jesus would. These include a mom who would rather think about guys at times, a young sibling who tests Grace to see if there is unconditional love there, and Jessica, an older teen who stirs things up for her own reasons. Is it to taunt Grace or is she hiding something? Also, what’s waiting on their vacation to cause even more turmoil? Readers of all ages will see how God brings good from the most imperfect situations when we trust Him. Grace and Jimmy learn some things take years of prayer, but God gives victories, too, as they explore the wonderful adventure that is the Christian life, and discover the riches of God's great grace

Now with a sequel - "Discovering Grace 2: Young Leaders"

Grace and Jimmy have allies helping them cope in their somewhat dysfunctional home, but even more struggles as they try to follow Jesus & share His love. And, that's not counting Jimmy being distracted by his first crush. There's Davey from one of their new dad's prior relationships. His mom is very sick, and their mom's general attitude causes six-year-old Erin to act out her frustration. There's Grace's battles with a very liberal Christian club and attempts to share Christ's love with Muslims, facing sometimes stiff opposition, even as one of those Muslims tries to break away. There's also Jimmy's crush's concerns about whether she's good enough since she doesn't look like a supermodel. Then, their new dad's health problems and several decisions regarding God's will for peoples' lives also cause confusion. Through it all, Jimmy and Grace learn what it means to be real leaders - not always having things easy or knowing the perfect solution, but still trusting Jesus to get them through.

Imagine if all baseball's labor strikes were averted
     History from a prevented 1994/5 strike/lockout is quite different. 1981 even features a few somewhat signifcant changes.

Imagine no 1994/5 baseball strike/lockout, and steroids being fought in baseball a decade early.

 

The rest of the 1994 season unfolds week by week. Highlights showcase the game's excitement, the coming storm, and the record chases whose results mirror the uncertain future which comes because of this history's steroid scandal. This 1998 will be memorable for an entirely different reason from ours, as owners act to cut costs one way or another. Seasons from 1994-2013 - with an emphasis on the earlier years - are discussed with fans able to consider the joy and sorrow different franchises would feel.

 

1981, of course, was also marred by a strike. The last section shows the 1981 division races month by month. Readers will see the pennant races of a completed 1981, with the playoffs and World Series, plus major award winners and statistical leaders. Changes to 1982 and beyond, minor as they are, are also discussed.
