#TuesdayTreasures Guest Post by Nikola Dimitrov

Good Morning!

Well, we leave Coarsegold, CA & Yosemite National Park today, heading for Red Bluff and Lassen Volcanic National Park. I'll be sharing another update on my West Coast Vacation on Thursday and then at least once a week in July until I've shown you some of what I'm experiencing on this extended road trip.

Meanwhile, please welcome Nikola Dimitrov to our blog. He is a new-to-me author brought to us by PrimeStar Publicity.

In 1992 Nikola Dimitrov experienced a miraculous conversion, receiving Jesus as his Lord and Savior. Since 1995 he has been a full-time minister of the Gospel, serving as pastor, Bible teacher, preacher, and Christian educator. He started his first church in 1994, which is still standing today, and in 1998 he began his traveling ministry. Nikola is currently pastoring several church groups in Bourgas, Bulgaria and is frequently sought out as a speaker around the country. He also serves as a Bible teacher at the Apostolic Kingdom Institute in Stara Zagora, Bulgaria.

As editor-in-chief of Vetil Media Ministry, Nikola has translated and published more than thirty books into Bulgarian, as well as writing some himself. He then encourages his congregations to take responsibility in word and deed toward that end. As a translator, Nikola has also produced and distributed around the nation nearly 1000 Bulgarian versions of audio and video teachings by famous foreign preachers and teachers.

As part of a charity in Bulgaria, along with other volunteers, Nikola takes care of needy people from the minorities, distributing clothes, food, medicine, and school materials to children.

Nikola is married to Helen, and they have two lovely young-adult daughters, Annie (which means grace) and Mikaela (which means who is like God?). Both are part of Nikola and Helen’s ministry, serving in the area of music.

Let's see what Nikola has to treasure.....

Hey, guys,
 
I’d like to justify the title of my book: “The Four in One Gospel of Jesus”. The Rabbi Rev. Eric Walker, when interviewing me, made a very good point: There are not 4 gospels, when You consider the meaning of the word Gospel (Good news). There’s only one Good News, and that is the fact that there is a new King of kings and Lord of lords - Jesus. So, the 4 gospels are actually one Gospel of our King and Lord. 
 
It’s interesting how many Christians associate the Gospel only with Salvation (going to Heaven when we die), when the Bible, in every single place, talking about the Gospel, calls it: The Gospel of the Kingdom. Yes, there is Salvation, Healing, Deliverance, Protection, Provision and Victory in Jesus, but these are all by-products of the fact that the Good News are the Good News of the King Jesus and His Kingdom, HERE and NOW. Check out for Yourselves:
 
And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. - Matthew 4:23 (The preaching of the King and His Kingdom brought healing and deliverance in the Present)
 
And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. - Matthew 9:35
 
And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent. - Luke 4:43 (This seemed to be Jesus’ calling and…
 
…Our mission is pretty much the same - to proclaim that there is a New king of kings in our world:
 
- Jesus, not Mammon (deceitfulness of riches, secular cares and all kinds of other things)
- Jesus, not Pharaoh (bondage over the mind, spirit and body)
- Jesus, not Jezebel (perversion, adultery, fornication and corruption)
- Jesus, not Ahab (apathy, not assuming responsibility, lack of character and stamina)
- Jesus, not the works of the flesh (Galatians 5:19-21, about which the Bible says that that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. It does not say that they will not be saved, but that they will not be effective for the Kingdom, e.g. will not be able to witness, heal, deliver and live victoriously.
- Jesus, not the devil, sin or idolatry. 
 
Still not convinced? Let’s see what the first century men of God would preach:
 
- John the Baptist: “Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near”
- Jesus: “Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near”
- The disciples sent by Jesus: “Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near”
- But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. (Acts 8:12)
- And he went into the synagogue, and spake boldly for the space of three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of God. (Acts 19:8)
- And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God,… (Acts 28:23)
 
There are so many more Bible Scriptures to back up my point, but I think the above are enough.
 
Why do I say all that? Because, to have a bird’s eye perspective on the life of Jesus - the King of the Kingdom, chronologically and contextually - will help us be more effective for Him. That’s what The Four in One Gospel of Jesus provides. 
 
God Bless You!

Wow....what amazing and wonderful truths to treasure, Nikola. Thanks for sharing!

#SaturdaySpotlight is on Kryssie Fortune & Claimed by the Vampire, Seduced by the Werewolf

Good Morning from Coarsegold, CA - about 30 miles from Yosemtie National Park!

We keep going north but the temperatures are still in the triple digits! Hot, hot, hot!

Just like today's guest with her new release!

Kryssie has been in the spotlight before and she has shared thoughts and treasures with us, so you know she writes "hot, sexy" romance (aka: EROTIC) - although the excerpt she's sharing here is rated PG....anyway, let's find out about her newest release....

After seven centuries, Elias, a former Spartan turned vampire, finds his eternal bride.

Seth, Elias’s werewolf half-brother, scents his mate.

Vampire and werewolf loathe each other. The only thing they agree on is that Tempest is their mate--and they’re not sharing.

A prophecy will force Tempest, a twenty-first-century witch, to choose between them. As the half-brothers vie to win her heart, they teach her about spanking, the way pain heightens pleasure, and the joy of multiple orgasms.

A vampire can’t survive without his fated bride. A werewolf dies if he loses his mate. Their future rests in Tempest’s hands.

Which one will she choose?

Excerpt: Seth galloped into the ring. He looked every inch a medieval prince, with gleaming top boots and flowing velvet cloak. The crowd remembered his display earlier and cheered wildly. They fell silent when Elias marched into view. He wore a Spartan uniform straight from the film 300—scarlet cloak, bare chest, black shorts, and greaves on his legs. The blacksmith had even managed to turn the Roman helmet he’d been working into a Spartan helm. It fit Elias perfectly.

Looking at him stole Tempest’s breath from her lungs. Head high, cloak thrown back over his shoulders, Elias saluted the crowd. A quick glance at the audience, and she realized she wasn’t the only one who thought Elias was gorgeous. Lots of the ladies ogled his washboard abs. Then again, decked out in his medieval splendor, Seth also looked calm, commanding, and ready for battle. When he drew his sword and saluted the spectators, the crowd went wild.

Someone booed as Elias strode to the center of the arena. Furious, Tempest got back on the speaker system. “Everyone down the right flank, where our gallant medieval knight is now, you’re Team Seth. The rest of you are Team Elias. Come on, let me hear you shout.”

A child responded, her high-pitched voice carrying over the crowd. “Go, Seth, go!”

Slowly, one half of the crowd took up the chant.

A lone voice on the other side of the arena yelled, “Come on, Elias!”

Note: While loosely linked to the Scattered Siblings series, this book may be read as a standalone story

Kryssie Fortune writes the sort of hot sexy books she loves to read. If she can sneak a dragon into her paranormal books she will. Her paranormal heroes are muscular werewolves, arrogant Fae, or BDSM loving dragons. 

Kryssie likes her contemporary heroes ex-military and dominant. Her heroines are kick ass females who can hold their own against whatever life - or Kryssie - throws at them.

Kryssie's pet hates are unhappy endings, and a series that end on a cliff hanger.
Her books are all stand alone even when part of series. Plot always comes before sex, but when her heroines and heroes get together, the sex is explosive and explicit. One review called it downright sensual.

#ThursdayThoughts with DiAnn Mills!

Good Morning from Lemon Cove, CA!

I'm running late with my post so won't take too much time talking about my trip. Suffice it to say AZ & CA are Hot, Hot, HOT with temps in the triple digits!

Today's guest has a career just as hot. 

Award-winning author DiAnn Mills combines an adventuresome spirit with unforgettable characters to create action-packed novels. DiAnn’s first book was published in 1998. She currently has more than 50 books in print, which have sold more than a million and a half copies and appeared on the CBA and ECPA bestseller lists.

DiAnn also won back-to-back Christy Awards in 2010 and 2011 for Breach of Trust and Sworn to Protect, the first two books in her Call of Duty series. Her online home is www.diannmills.com.

Now let's see what DiAnn has to share....

 4 Ways the FBI Assists Other Agencies

The FBI works with local, state, federal, and tribal law enforcement to investigate and share information to help solve and prevent crime. Through the following services, they are an integral federal agency dedicated to the wellbeing of the United States and global allies.

“The most effective weapon against crime is cooperation…the efforts of all law enforcement agencies with the support and understanding of the American people.”  J. Edgar Hoover

In my new series, FBI Task Force, I needed accurate information as to how the FBI assists other agencies. The following came from my friend Shauna Dunlap, Special Agent/Media Coordinator for Houston’s FBI.

1. The FBI’s national and local Joint Terrorism Task Forces. (There are JTTF’s in each of the 56 field offices.) These small groups of agents do everything required to run down leads, train, gather intel, and everything in between.
2. Under the Attorney General Guidelines, the FBI is able to assist local, state and other federal partners investigating federal crimes or threats to national security. For example, the FBI assist’s other agencies investigating violent acts or mass killings as noted in federal law: 28, USC 530c 9b) (1) (M) (i).
3. Intelligence information sharing
4. Criminal justice information services

Isn’t it good to know that trained people are working together to keep us safe?

Yes it is, DiAnn! Now tell us a little about your new book, Deep Extraction

FBI Task Force, Book 2

A pacemaker should have saved oil and gas magnate Nathan Moore’s life. Instead, it provided his killer with a seemingly perfect means of execution.

A bombing at one of Nathan’s oil rigs days earlier indicates his death could be part of a bigger conspiracy, a web Special Agent Tori Templeton must untangle. But her first order of business is separating the personal from the professional—the victim’s wife, her best friend, is one of the FBI’s prime suspects.

Clearing Sally’s name may be the biggest challenge of her career, but Tori finds an unexpected ally in the newest member of the task force, recently reinstated Deputy US Marshal Cole Jeffers. As Tori and Cole dig deeper into Nathan’s personal and business affairs, they uncover more than they bargained for. And the closer they get to finding the real killer—and to each other—the more intent someone is on silencing them for good.

Thanks, DiAnn!

#TuesdayTreasures found in Santa Fe, NM - West Coast Vacation #2

Good Morning!

Saturday, I shared some vacation memories from the TX leg of our West Coast trip. Today I'd like to share treasures found in Santa Fe, NM....

Santa Fe is HUGE in the arts so if you love to look and shop and gaze at sculptures, paintings and museums - it's a mega treat for you.

I love art but not enough to spend hours traipsing about in the heat to simply gaze. However, I did get to visit 4 historic places....

 

#1: San Miguel Chapel....The Oldest church in the United States. Filled with history, it is still an active place of worship today.


#2: Loretto Chapel....the church with the miraculous staircase. I tell you this was my favorite place despite the commercialism of it. They have an entire hotel, spa and other businesses attached and associated with the chapel, and it is definitely a stunning site. This statue of Jesus is absolutely breathtaking and His eyes truly reflect the love He has for you! No trip to Santa Fe is complete without visiting this gorgeous place of worship.

#3: The Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi. St. Francis is one of my favorite saints of all time. His Peace Prayer, is absolutely life changing. Everything about this cathedral was beyond description. Again, despite the commercialism of the place, you could really feel the presence of God and St. Francis in this holy place.


We also visited the DeVargas Street House (the oldest house in Santa Fe) and ate at Upper Crust Pizza.

All in all, our trip to Santa Fe was amazing and definitely memories to treasure! 

Next week I'll share some photos from Sedona and the Grand Canyon so please check back for Tuesday Treasures, Thursday Thoughts and Saturday Spotlight.

Until next time, take care and God Bless!

#SaturdaySpotlight West Coast Vacation #1

Good Morning From Flagstaff, AZ!

If you've followed me for long, you'll know I'm on a cross-country trek to (and along) the West coast. Since my guest couldn't be here today, I thought I'd share some of my vacation memories (so far) with you.....

Our journey began on Thursday, June 9th and started in Gordonville, TX at Cedar Mills Resort on Lake Texoma. Not a lot to do there, the wind blew all the time. Not a gentle breeze, but up to 25 mph with gusts even higher. However, we did see some beautiful sunrises. It was awesome to see the sun rising to the east while the moon still shone bright over the harbor.


Next stop was Amarillo, & Canyon, TX and Palo Duro Canyon!

Known as Texas' "best kept secret" Palo Duro Canyon is amazing. You're driving along the highway with nothing but farm land and wheat fields when all of a sudden you come upon a huge hole in the ground! Here are a few pics, but I can promise these don't do the beauty of this park justice.,,,There are numerous hiking trails, the views are spectacular, colors magnificent and TEXAS the outdoor musical drama breathtaking.


We did some hiking in the morning then drove into Amarillo to eat at the Big Texan Steak Ranch...home of the 72 oz steak! I'd heard a lot about this restaurant so we just had to eat there. The food was delicious and plentiful. There are a lot of neat things in this restaurant, some creepy ones too...but all in all, worth the trip. 


Eating at this historic restaurant was great but my favorite part of visiting Amarillo was the American Quarter Horse (AQHA) Hall of Fame and Museum!


This is a treat any horse lover would enjoy.

On Monday the 12th we left TX and visited Santa Fe / Pecos New Mexico. I'll be sharing photos from there later so be sure and drop by weekly for Tuesday Treasures, Thursday Thoughts and Saturday Spotlight!  

And don't forget the Multi-Author Rafflecopter Giveaway of a Kindle Fire which ends in less than 2 weeks!

Until next time, take care and God Bless.
