Local Author Jeremy Johnson Releases First Book, Unbroken

Thursday, August 14, 2014

Local author Jeremy Johnson has released his first book, Unbroken - Discovering Wholeness Through the Shattered Pieces of Life.  

Review for Unbroken:

The definition of the word “whole” is to be complete or full: not lacking or leaving out any part. That is what takes place when we are made unbroken, we are mended by Jesus Christ. He fills the gaps and heals the broken pieces of our lives. He takes an impossible situation, one with a million pieces and restores it back to one piece. He doesn’t just restore it back to its natural condition but transforms it into something better than before. Only God can truly restore. 

Throughout this book Mr. Johnson will unpack the reasons his life became broken, even when he attempted to paint the pretty picture. He will tell you the journey of how God restored Jeremy back to Him and how He helped him rediscover his purpose in this world. 

This book is for the broken people in the world, which includes all of us. Whether you have been broken by tragedy, divorce, loss, bad relationships or even by disappointment, this book is for you. What unfolds in the pages of this book is a testimony that God can heal the most broken pieces of your life. The things that have been burned in the chapters of your soul, can be resurrected, just as Jesus Himself was resurrected and conquered the grave. God can take what was broken and make it unbroken.   

Unbroken is available at Amazon.com in paperback and e-book/Kindle versions.

Roy Exum: Could Obama Win Again?

When President Barack Obama spoke to the African Union yesterday in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, he made a pretty brash statement: “I actually think I’m a pretty good president,” he told the African leaders. “I think if I ran, I could win. But I can’t.” While everyone is entitled to their opinion, I don’t think that’s true. Obviously, term limits keep Obama from running, but as I sit ... (click for more)
