    He doesnÆt plan to stay Amish. She doesnÆt have a plan. 
    Then an angel draws their hearts toward God . . . and each other. 
    A buggy-racing champion, a hardworking field-hand, and a terrible cook, Rachel Hartzler does not fit her Amish communityÆs standards for an eligible bride. Hurt by their rejection and still grieving the loss of her brother, Rachel is ready for change. 
    SheÆs not, however, ready for Jordan Engles. RachelÆs father hired him to help tend the fields so Rachel can learn to cook and sew, thus increasing her chances of finding a husband. She canÆt understand why her father doesnÆt want her help and blames Jordan for trying to replace her beloved brother. 
    Jordan plans for his time on the Michigan farm to be short. Before his mother passed away, he promised her he'd give her Amish roots a chance. Upon her death, uncertain about what else to do, he came to stay with his Uncle Isaac in Hope Falls. He's curious why his mother left the community she obviously loved. But it doesn't take Jordan long to conclude that the strict lifestyle and the three hour church services are not for him. 
    But there isnÆt just human interaction at play. Nathaniel, an angel of God, sees the potential in Jordan and RachelÆs hearts from heavenÆs perspective. His goal is to shepherd them toward the path of healing and love.   
    When tragedy strikes, then strikes again, this angelic being is sent to guide them toward the healing and abundant life promised in GodÆs Word û if only they will listen.

    Lucid dreaming has been acknowledged for centuries, but has till lately remained a rare and little recognized phenomenon. My own scientific and personal explorations, together with the findings of additional dream researchers across the world, have merely started to shed light on this strange state of consciousness.
    
     
    Lately, this fresh research field has captivated the attention of the population outside the domain of scientific dream research as studies have demonstrated that given suitable training, individuals may learn to have lucid dreams.
    
     
    It has been stated that “everything is dependent on remembering,” and this is surely true of lucid dreaming. Learning to recall your dreams is essential if you wish to learn how to dream lucidly. Till you have excellent dream recall, you won’t bear much probability of bearing many lucid dreams.

    The Plain Choice - A True Story...

    Raised in a broken family and emotionally overlooked, Sherry Gore grew up without a solid foundation, a prisoner of her own poor choices, and at times without hope.  A series of terrible mistakes left her feeling wrecked and alone and a sudden tragedy threw Sherry into an emotional tailspin too powerful to escape.
     
    Sherry hangs by a thread, unable to see how she can go on living, until it happens: on a morning of no particular significance, she walks into a church and BAM the truth of Jesus’ forgiving love shatters her world and cleaves her life in two:  She goes to bed stunned; she wakes up a Christian.
     
    Unwilling to return to the darkness of her former life, Sherry attacks her faith head on.  Soon the life Sherry Gore remakes for herself and her children as she seeks to follow the teachings of the Bible features head coverings, simple dress, and a focus on Jesus Christ.  Only then does she realize, in a fit of excitement, that there are others like her.  They are called Amish and Mennonite, and she realizes she has found her people.
     
    The plain choice that Sherry makes is not easy – and life still brings unexpected pain and heartache - but it changes everything for her, as she becomes one of the few people on earth to have successfully joined the Amish from the outside. 
     
    She has found her place. And her story proves that one can return from the darkest depths to the purest light with the power of God.

    How to Develop your Occult Powers

    In preparing this series of lessons for students of Western lands, I have been compelled to proceed along lines exactly opposite to those which I would have chosen had these lessons been for students in India. This because of the diametrically opposite mental attitudes of the students of these two several lands.
    
    The student in India expects the teacher to state positively the principles involved, and the methods whereby these principles may be manifested, together with frequent illustrations (generally in the nature of fables or parables), serving to link the new knowledge to some already known thing. The Hindu student never expects or demands anything in the nature of "proof" of the teachers statements of principle or method; in fact, he would regard it as an insult to the teacher to ask for the same. Consequently, he does not look for, or ask, specific instances or illustrations in the nature of scientific evidence or proof of the principles taught. He may ask for more information, but solely for the purpose of bringing out some point which he has not grasped; but he avoids as a pestilence any question seeming to indicate argument, doubt of what is being taught him, or of the nature of a demand for proof or evidence.
    
    The Western student, on the other hand, is accustomed to maintaining the skeptical attitude of mind—the scientific attitude of doubt and demand for proof—and the teacher so understands it. Both are accustomed to illustrations bringing out the principles involved, but these illustrations must not be fanciful or figurative—they must be actual cases, well authenticated and vouched for as evidence. In short, the Western teacher is expected to actually "prove" to his students his principles and methods, before he may expect them to be accepted. This, of course, not from any real doubt or suspicion of the veracity or ability of the teacher, but merely because the Western mind expects to question, and be questioned, in this way in the process of teaching and learning.
    
    Consequently, in this series of lessons, I have sought to follow the Western method rather than the Hindu. So far as is possible, I have avoided the flat positive statement of principles and methods, and have sought to prove each step of the teaching. Of course, I have been compelled to assume the existence of certain fundamental principles, in order to avoid long and technical metaphysical and philosophical discussions. I have also had to content myself with the positive flat assertion of the existence of the Astral Plane, Akashic Records, Prana, etc., which are fundamental postulates of Hindu philosophy and occult science—for these are established solely by the experience of those who are able to function on the higher planes themselves. But, beyond this I have sought to prove by direct and positive evidence (adapted to the Western mind) every step of my teaching and methods.
