I'm a graduate of Florida State University. I'm married to an incredible woman with whom I have three Holy Spirit-filled teenagers. My passion is writing fiction that exalts Truth and promotes wholeness in spirit, soul, and body. I believe that all who are willing to receive the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness by faith in Christ are destined to reign in life by the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:17). I'm a writing contributor for CBN’s online 2014 Devotional, Read Through the Bible in a Year – Bible Reading plan. I'm also the Moderator of the online group Goodreads.com/ReignInLifeThroughChrist . I also teach Sunday School at the church I attend (the teenage class).
SYNOPSIS OF THE INHERITANCE
Adult siblings Timothy and Rosita couldn’t possibly be more different. Timothy, the eldest of four, is a Holy Ghost filled believer whose daily walk with the Lord has grown to become naturally supernatural. By grace through faith, he operates effortlessly in the gifts of the Spirit; On the other hand…his younger sister Rosita, to her peril, has flirted with New Age Spirituality for far too long. Under the tutelage of her “spiritual adviser” Rosita is drawn more deeply into the occult than she ever bargained for.
When Timothy, Rosita, and their brothers, Robert and Dexter, attend the reading of their father’s last will and testament, the siblings learn that Timothy will inherit their recently deceased father’s massive fortune, leaving the rest of them with nothing. The quarrelsome upheavals that subsequently ensue threaten to destroy the family bonds that were once impervious to scandal and controversy.
As the sibling rivalry escalates, Robert’s alcoholism intensifies; Dexter seems unconcerned by the lack of an inheritance because his illegal “business dealings” fund his lucrative lifestyle; Timothy’s faith is tested as he tries to show his brothers and sister the authentic life-changing power of Jesus; and Rosita (Robert’s twin) continues her disastrous plunge into New Age Occultism—a diabolical counterfeit of the anointing. As Rosita plays a dangerous game with forces of darkness she does not understand, the family is plagued by unexplainable occurrences that threaten their safety and even their lives.
Can Rosita be rescued from the grip of evil before it is too late? Will the siblings continue in their destructive lifestyles, or will they receive their true inheritance of eternal life in Jesus Christ?
