Also, included in this book are listings of some of the names for God and Jesus found in the King James Holy Bible.

As an added bonus in this book, Highlights One and Two, as well as an excerpt from Highlight Three are included as previews of my upcoming bio-fiction book titled, Solid Journey Highlights - The Victoria Chronicles. Highlights mentioned in the book are based on actual occurrences. For the most part, only the names of people, some places, and the dialogue are fictional.

Portions of Highlight One share about Victoria's marriage to a man who became a drug addict, drug dealer, and pimp. Jesus saved her soul after the marriage. Also, Highlight One shares how Victoria spent time in a psych ward.

A portion of Highlight Two shares about a "Christian" man who decides to offer a room for rent with an unmarried male and female as roommates. Huh? That's not godly...

The upcoming book will include Victoria's experiences as a shelter resident and the assorted lessons learned in them.

Description of Learn Skills to Keep the Devil in His Place - Volume 1 :

Why are so many folks who profess Christ as Lord afraid of the devil? Largely, it’s due to lack of knowledge. God is never afraid of Satan. Certainly, our Lord expects His children to triumph over the devil and his perverted evil practices. It’s not our place to cower from the tactics of our enemy. One of our main assignments is to learn from God how to keep the devil in his place.

We’re not to be vagabond spiritual hobos bowing to the dictates of Satan. Our Lord commands that we war a good warfare - 1 Timothy 1:18. Further, 2 Corinthians 10:4 tells us, “(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)” We need to recognize our places as blood bought saints of the Most High God. Our journeys should be from recognition to steadfast actions that glorify God and destroy the works of the devil. Our Lord has not purposed that we be afraid of Satan. The devil should be afraid of us because we abide in God whose kingdom cannot be moved or destroyed. Daniel 7:27 says about God, “…and all dominions shall serve and obey him.”


Note: I have since written a Volume 2 of Learn Skills to Keep the Devil in His Place. Some of those skills are:
War Call

Description of short story: Jesus Calls Timeout at the Basketball Game:

Enthusiasm is abundant at the Sterling Arena. Folks excitedly await the start of this long anticipated event. No one expects the appearance of Jesus at the basketball game. His presence shifts the gears of all in attendance.

What’s Jesus doing there? People don’t know what to think. This is a game changer for sure. No “blueprint” is on hand for this circumstance. Case studies don’t exist to guide how to handle an interruption by the Messiah. Hearts melt, knees tremble, and lips quiver. A select few glow with joy as they witness the glory of the Lord Christ. His eyes are like a flame of fire as they penetrate those in the crowd. Certainly, Jesus won’t foul out at this mind blowing occasion. He shouts, “Timeout!”

Description of short story: Flying in the Godly Sky United:

On flight 737, college buddies Eric, Jay and Don delight in mocking Christians on board until their jokes are brought to a halt when major turbulence occurs. The air calamity quickly changes the “climate” in the plane’s atmosphere.

The sky turbulence is unlike any that this crew has experienced. The plane rocks violently. Thunder claps are unrelenting. The pilot, unable to disguise his fear, speaks into the PA system, “Are there any Christians on board?” Shaken and trembling - simultaneously, Eric, Jay and Don point across the aisle.

Will the Christians become fainthearted like the other folks on the plane? What are the thoughts racing through the minds of the college buddies who minutes ago enjoyed entertaining themselves by making Christians the targets of jokes? Is a safe landing ahead?

Description of Warfare Solutions Loaded with the Lion of Judah - Volume (This received four and five star ratings on Amazon.):

Note: There are twenty-six solutions, contained in this e-Book that prove effective if used with the aim to pursue GOD with zeal and passion.
Our Lord forever wins through the power of Almighty God. Jesus is the Lion of the tribe of Judah who is fearless in the presence of all manner of evil. Enter solution zones here for glorious triumphs in spiritual warfare. Certainly, we can win against every force of wickedness. The gates of hell shall not prevail - Matthew 16:18.

We cannot afford to ignore spiritual warfare. The stakes are too high for us to be silent and spiritually unprofitable while Satan engages in his signature diabolical deeds of perversion and sinister conduct. Often, people of God surrender ground to the devil. That is not the plan of our heavenly Father. We are heirs of God appointed to fight good fights of faith, to pull down demonic strong holds, and to destroy the works of the devil. There is nothing in the plan of God for His people to fear evil. We’ve not been given assignments as victims. We are victorious saints if we choose what are indeed our purposes and destinies. Our Lord commands us to be holy as He is holy. When we utterly and wholly obey Him, we absolutely win over all the power of the enemy. We belong on the battlefield armed and combat ready to dismantle what the vile devil has built. United, we make it happen all for the glory of God and for the advancement of his eternal kingdom.

Description of Championship Conduct - Excel in Care, Courtesy and Customer Service :

Are you weary of rude, inconsiderate and incompetent conduct that has become routine in our society? Come on board to proactively address it. Clearly, major change is long overdue. Top level conduct is the best response to the low standards that are now commonly on display. You're invited to join the team of folks who make championship choices. United, we make the best things happen.

We can be change agents in this world of disintegrating manners. It’s our responsibility to add to the harmony on this great planet on which we reside. Business as usual isn’t an acceptable stance for champions. We owe it to our present, and to our future generations to be engaged in reform for the common good of we the people.

Let’s be examples of excellence as witnesses of the power that develops when teams unite for worthy causes. Let’s wear care, integrity, courtesy and competence as badges of honor.

There’s expectation that championship conduct will prove contagious. Who will catch it?

Have a seat as Pastor Breeze takes his staff to the circus. Discover their featured roles under the big top. Go with Belinda as she feeds her shopping addiction. Will she forsake her habit to save her family? Enter Club Bliss where Jesus abides with the Eagle Squad. The presence of the Lord there makes a difference indeed.
