Divine Connections: Experiencing the Joy of God’s Divine Order
By: Barbara Allen
Some individuals are convinced that God does not exist. However, throughout my life I have felt the hand of God consistently directing, comforting, and loving me. I have also discovered that there are many other individuals who have experienced the Divine Connection of God in their lives; those links, relationships or circumstances that remind us that God is in control and He knows the plans for our lives (Jeremiah 29:11).
It is our expectation that Divine Connections will ignite the reader’s spirit and give hope and confidence in knowing that with God, all things are possible. We believe every reader will walk away encouraged by staying in faith, never giving up, and knowing that God is with them through His Divine Connections.
These stories were written with sincere passion and transparency. Each story will grip your heart as if you were there fighting for each author’s success over their many obstacles. As you take this journey, reflect on the divine connections that have occurred in your life and their tremendous impact.

Santify Your Money: The 11th Commandment
By Toni Moore
The Bible contains roughly 500 scriptures on prayer and faith, but well over 2,000 verses pertain to money. Approximately 40% of Jesus’ parables deal with money. However, churches engrain it in your mind and spirit that, “Money is the root of all evil.”
Broke people will never inherit the wealth of the wicked that is laid up for the righteous. When exposed to harmful teachings in the church about money, prosperity, and abundance, you will remain broke, busted, and disgusted about what God hasn’t done or seemingly won’t do for you, through you, and by you. Saints, it’s time to stop dying as paupers because of the knowledge we lack concerning money.
In Sanctify Your Money, author, speaker, attorney, and money coach Toni Moore will address the root to most of our thinking about money. Sanctify Your Money touches on why Christians need to bless their money. She lays out the money sanctification process that will ensure financial strongholds and the principalities that are keeping you from manifesting, building, and protecting generational wealth. Following the teachings of Toni Moore will allow you to not only prosper, but to live more abundantly.
