Last year in September, while searching Amazon for something to watch while relaxing after a long work day, a movie about writing caught my attention. The Lord has used it to begin a new aspect of writing for me, which has now turned into a greeting card selection.
SEW stands for Sowing Encouraging Words. We can do this anywhere we go, any time, all the time. We have flat cards that are great for evangelizing and now complete cards for many occasions. We have about 50 cards to offer. We're always looking for new inspirational writers to join.
So, if you feel so inclined to write and inspire others, email or text us.
In the meantime, have a look at our cards on the website or request an interactive catalog available via email. The catalog is also available through the "Document files" link. Scroll down to RPJ catalog.
Blessings to all!

The author has done it again. She has brought the word of God to the reader in a whole new light. "Destined for Grace" will open the reader’s eyes and allow God’s truth to penetrate the boundaries - that wall of defense - built, based upon enemy lies. Who could ask for more?
As part of the “Destined” series, see what the Lord has done and receive His abundance of grace! Why wait until desperation leads to more bad decisions? An enlightening look at grace worth reading! Then receiving!
…Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! (Psalm 34)

Last month during a ministry meeting we learned that principles are set in motion by the words we speak (those which come out of our mouth!)
We were encouraged to speak to our body every day--every organ, including the blood and cells to line up with the Word of God
When we speak curses over ourselves, loved ones, friends or those we don't know, it is always accompanied by sin and death. And, mountains can be removed by the words from our mouths.
So, what should we speak? I'm glad you asked. Below is a guide to speak life and blessing over ourselves, families and friends:
Is is TRUE?
Is it KIND?
Is it NECESSARY?
Is it LIFE-GIVING?
If the answer is yes, then speak. If NOT, then don't speak. Words can harm or bless... which ones will you choose this day?

In the manner of a noteworthy adventure, the author recounts her remarkable steps of faith and adherence to the truth of God’s Word. Through her journey, the reader is challenged and inspired to walk in her footsteps and find that reachable goal of increased faith.

Amazing results can be found within these pages. The author/creator has put together an extraordinary list of fruitful reminders where no explanation is necessary. For the reader having difficulty making a “gratitude list”? Look no more. God has a lot to say about us – find out what -- in these affirmations written specifically for the reader!
Deuteronomy 31: 6 tells us: Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

Just finished. GREAT BOOK!!
This book is for the reader who wants to be healed.
An excellent read: The author simplifies the journey by applying experience with God’s truths. “If only” is removed out of the equation. By faith, no matter how great or small, the reader’s measure of faith can be brought into alignment with the Holy Word of God and result in victory over the enemies lies. Be prepared to believe what Jesus of Nazareth has already accomplished through the cross. We truly are Destined to be Healed.

This accompaniment of “Keys” allows the reader to readily receive God’s word and move beyond defeat. The author’s carefully chosen verses tell the tale of victory through her Savior. Any reader in search of hope will hold these precious keys as a reminder as how much they are loved by their Maker. Some locks are meant to be opened, and these keys work well. Great pocket companion.

Pools of Blessing for Tisquantum and Us
When they walk through the Valley of Weeping
it will become a place of refreshing springs
where pools of blessing collect after the rains!
These Psalm 84 words (NLT) form a precious and vivid picture of God’s care in stormy times, and how He brings ultimate good though we may not see it through our umbrella... or maybe even for a long time after the rain.
Consider the story of Tisquantum, a very early American resident. He and other young boys were kidnapped from their burning village to be sold for twenty pounds each, with fish and corn, upon the raiders’ return to Spain. Local friars persuaded Tisquantum’s captors to let them instruct the boys about Christian faith.
Tisquantum’s path later led to London where he worked in the home of a shipbuilder. Through that family’s compassion, he learned more about God, and about the English language.
Because of the shipbuilder, Tisquantum participated in an expedition to Newfoundland. After failures and a return trip to England he eventually found his way back to his original home on our east coast. His village was still a vacant shell, and a virulent plague had killed most of his people.
Tisquantum’s capture and a plan to sell him into slavery had kept him from that fate...but there was far more in God’s wonderful design! Tisquantum eventually lived with new residents who called his village area Plymouth. He taught the people special ways to cultivate crops they needed. He taught them how to fish, and which of their catch should be fertilizer instead of food. He became guide and translator when settlers sought peace with surrounding natives.
Those Plymouth residents, one of my ancestors included, made it through those first tough winters because of the friendship, wisdom, guidance and help of Tisquantum.
In the storms of that man’s life his family and village were taken, slavery loomed, hard work abounded in strange foreign lands and on ships at sea. But after his storms, how much of our nation’s life and history can be traced to success of those early settlers? How did all that terrible rain in Tisquantum’s life bring pools of blessing into ours?

I got a sneak peek at the upcoming book, “His Heart Calls” by Kathleen Schubitz. This devotional is not only beautiful to the eye, but the daily readings are awe-inspiring and bring God’s Holy Word to the reader with a personalized touch. Also, the scripture references entice the reader to open their Bible and hear more from the Lord. This is a book to be kept by the bedside.
