Celebrating the book launch with R.L. Maco, author of “A Yearn To Discern” – What is Discernment? More importantly, do we need to Discern in our everyday life?
The answer is Yes!!! Discernment is about successfully navigating your way through the daily chaos of life. How does Discerning accomplish this task? It’s simple: Discernment is the ultimate navigation system that is superior to any other navigation system you will ever encounter.
Discernment is an important skill that works its magic best behind the scenes. Just as knowledge is power, Discernment is Power with a Capital P because it involves the purposeful use of knowledge. In a nutshell, Discernment arms you with the power to take control over your life with clarity and focus. And on an even grander scale, Discernment, in many instances, takes you off someone else’s path and places you on the path that was designed especially for you. If you are not Discerning as you make important decisions and choices in life, then you may as well be playing Russian Roulette with your life. Why would you want to do that?!
It is my hope that this book will help you navigate life’s twists and turns by way of Discerning more. Through examples, exercises and by sharing some of my life experiences and lessons in Discernment, this book demonstrates why everyone should invest time in developing the ability to Discern. Why? Because through Discernment you will achieve maximum fulfillment and true purpose in life.
The benefits of learning how to Discern are endless, particularly in today’s global society laced with all the trappings of rapidly changing technology, social media, changing morals, values, ethics and culture. Discernment is the gift that keeps on giving and it’s about time you unwrap and use this precious gift that God has given to one and all.
Anthony Sciarratta, author of “Finding Forever: A 1970s Love Story” – In 1970s New York, a neurotic Italian-American man is inspired to write a novel about his love affair with a quirky Broadway actress who inspires him to pursue his life-long dream.
Michael Coniglio is at his wit’s end. His girlfriend, Angela, announces in front of the local coffee shop crowd that she has a new lover. The emotional fallout leads him to lose his office job, giving his boss the long-awaited excuse to fire him. Michael goes home to his parents looking for support and professes his childhood dream only for his father to remind Michael that he will never amount to anything.
Just as Michael is about to give up on life, he meets a woman who changes everything. The chatty and quirky Elvira Vaughn brings flavor to his world. The innocent, bright-eyed, artsy young woman ran from an abusive home to become a Broadway actress in crime-riddled New York City. Suffering from the depression of her past, the now thirty-year-old looks to a higher power for an answer. Can Michael and Elvira overcome the demons of their past and find their way into each other’s hearts?
Finding Forever is the humorous love story of two old souls that finally collide, reminding us that love exists even in the darkest of times
Sandra Leigh, author of “Shift” – The king is dead! Long live the King!The king of Elanthus and all his children are dead, and the coronation of his brother is imminent. While the country is still reeling from the tragedy, all of the nobles of the land must come to swear their fealty to the new king. It is the perfect time to forge new alliances to strengthen the Houses, and so the nobles bring with them their unmarried children, in hopes of advantageous marriages. After all, there are royal matches to be made.For the country raised, the capitol is a frightening place, full of noise and smells and the unfamiliar. It is the home of a new and oppressive religion that seeks to objectify and infantilize the female and overshadow the faith of the Great Mother. It is the slow fading out of the feudal system, full of people who are beholden only to themselves and the crown. It is the centre of politics and back-handed compliments, where what a person shows is nothing at all what they feel.Caelerys is the only daughter of one of Elanthus’s four dukes, sent to the capitol to her eldest brother who has lived at court since she was born, in hopes of his finding her a suitable match. She is an accomplished huntress, archer, and horsewoman; fair of countenance and… painfully shy amongst strangers. Her brother Willam is overprotective, taciturn and generally at a loss as to how to deal with this female creature who is now his responsibility. Cae can handle herself in the wilderness and wood, but a royal court is a different kind of forest, with altogether more dangerous and insidious beasts than any she has ever known. Enemies lurk, seeking advantage, both ancient and newly made, and highly skilled in social warfare.Not dreaming of the faery tale romance, determined only to find ‘someone who’ll suit’, Cae finds instead that hearts never listen to reason. She knows the faery tale never comes easy, knows the price of failure as well as victory. It is hard won, and long suffering, and always inevitable.The kingdom is old, and secrets have been long lost; things which refuse to be forgotten; things which can become violent if denied, and no oppressive, newfangled religion can change that… for long.
