'Angels All Around'

I discovered that penning a second book was far easier than the first one, partly because of what I learned in the first process - the process of dealing with editing, publishing, marketing and such - but more so because of the themes and content.

Show appreciation for your ministers

"It was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ." (Ephesians 4:11-13, New Living Translation).
