Glenn’s First Work of Fiction!
The story of one man’s search for the reality of God, Tempering Steele follows J. O. Steele, a modern-day prodigal son running and rebelling across the highways of America until the awesome forces of those who love and hate him bring him to his knees, barely holding onto life.
This collection of conversion stories, from converts and missionaries, shares experiences and miracles about teaching others. It contains an abundance of inspiring, motivational, and instructional stories about missionaries, missionary work, and the converts and conversions that make up this sacred labor.
These stories are perfect for a short spiritual thought, or even content for a full meeting, whether it be with youth, adults or leadership meetings. The stories are true and help remind all of us that our Heavenly Father is there to watch over and guide those who are willing to serve.
Many of the stories are drawn from the past and illustrate the faith, hard work, and sacrifice that is required to assist the Lord in gathering Israel for this last time. These stories are a witness that this is the Lord’s work, and He works with His servants closely to accomplish His purposes.
This new book is a compilation of all Christmas stories that I have created in past years. My hope is that these stories will be able to help you with church talks, lessons, stories you may share with family or friends or any other time that you might be needing an uplifting story to share.
Often, when we think of the Christmas story, we turn to Luke 2 or Matthew 1, and it is right that we do. Those are powerful, eye-witness accounts of the Savior’s birth. However, Christ is the Savior of all men, of all ages, from Father Adam to the final winding up scene. There is only one Savior and one name that brings salvation. It follows then that prophets and apostles, past and present, have looked to Him and wrote of Him. In so doing, they often spoke of that first Christmas, sharing insights and prophecies beyond that of Luke or Matthew.
For the most part, this book is the telling of the Christmas story throughout the whole of the scriptures. There are other stories added in, but this book is a testimony and witness of the divinity of the Lord Christ from across the ages.
The Almighty, through his prophets, gathered, edited, and published a book of histories, stories and teachings for us. It is a sacred library selected by God to help us. And while some may say, “Oh, I’ve heard all those since I was just a child!” my response is, “Have you? Have you learned all that the Lord intended for you from that story?” It seems with the word of the Lord, there is always another layer of meaning.
