Summary: 

This children book tells the story of a sweet little pup, Scrappy who ventures out into the world as he is tired of the mistreatment and lack of care he had experienced in his home. The story details on his adventures and experiences in the outside world.

Like any dog, Scrappy is inquisitive and excited about the new experienced in his life. He explores new territory and tries to move as far away from his home of neglect as fast as possible. Though he feels scared and confused, Scrappy has no other option but to go forward. He meets new people, some are cruel to him and others love him like nobody has ever loved him.

The story of Scrappy shows us how life can change quickly and unexpectedly . It teaches children that life can be sad and happy at different point, but that there is always light at the end of the tunnel. It also touches on issues like bullying and peer-pressure.

 ~ Teaser ~

Once upon a time there was a little dog who was abused and mistreated. Scrappy hardly ever ate and he never had enough water. There were many nights he would go to bed hungry and thirsty. Scrappy felt so unappreciated and so unloved.

Scrappy often found himself staring out the window of his home thinking in his mind what it would be like if he could be free. He would imagine to himself what he would do when he grew up.

It was early in the morning, and everyone was asleep except for little Mays. He had gotten up and gone into the kitchen, and that’s when he saw the smoke.

The house didn’t have any smoke alarms. Mays’ father couldn’t afford them; he’d not worked since his accident.

Mays was only eight, but he’d been taught at home and in school to report to adults when anything was wrong.

“Daddy! Mommy! The kitchen is on fire! It’s burning!”

Author: Ronald Destra & Juanita Destra

Release Date: 23 Sept 2016

Publisher: Destra World Books Publishing LLC

Goodreads | Amazon 

Summary: 

They met each other by a stroke of luck and became inseparable friends from then on. Both were faced with terminal birth defects that would make anybody desolate for fear of death, yet it did not stop them from being the best they can be individually and for each other.

Death did separate them physically but Joseph lives on, in his friend’s thoughts, brining smiles to his face as he has always done when was alive.

~ Teaser ~

Joseph was different from other children. He was born with a crippling handicap. As a child, he needed special attention and had to be watched around the clock. He had special parents, and they loved him unconditionally.

I came into Joseph’s life when he was five years old.  I, myself, was born with a birth defect, and we bonded instantly.

The doctors said I wouldn’t live to be a teenager but what hey didn’t know was I had a desire to live. Joseph would cry a lot; he was in so much pain, mostly from the medicines and treatments.

FIGHTING FIRE WITH FIRE IS FOR THE FAITHLESS
One dedicated youth pastor will soon know the reason why

Shortly after relocating his family to the sweet tea-obsessed town of Sumlyn, Missouri, things start to unravel for a dedicated youth pastor. Hawes Trainor has always gone where he’s called without question. And the move to a satellite church from Newhall, CA is no different save for the well-being of his young daughter, Danielle. Affectionately called “D” by her dad, the twelve-year-old soon lands in the local hospital under the watchful eye of the mysterious Dr. Grove. For Hawes and his school teacher wife, Angela, the situation soon spins out of control. He may call the shots, but Angela was nearly selected for the Space Shuttle Challenger, coming within only a few teachers of the fateful mission. She has dreams of her own, yet must put them aside to figure out why D isn’t coming out of the hospital. It’s the end of 1985 and the Challenger is getting closer to launch. Will it be one disaster after the next for the youth pastor of unshakable faith? Read In Defense of Knowing by Charles Mahoney and travel back thirty years to when Ronald Reagan was President and there was still a Cold War going on. Experience good versus evil in this “absolutely chilling” tale from one of the most inventive novelists working today.
