In the first of the three book series, ReUnited - A Gift from God; the characters struggle with their faith in God, and the pain from their past. Can they truly forgive? Can they trust God and allow Him to heal their brokenness? Tony and Elaine have the opportunity to answer these questions and more because they are thrown together in an unlikely place, on top of a mountain in Alberta, Canada. There is no place for either of them to go, so they are forced to face their fears and their past lives together.
The Window of the Heart series is a collection of small fictional stories that explore the depth of God's love and His capacity to restore that which was lost, albeit relationships, a renewed sense of oneself, or joy that had been buried under the weight of life's challenges. In these stories, you will laugh, cry, and paused to think about your own challenges and I hope come away with a renewed spirit and a stronger faith.
Hello. I am Sherwin Nicholson. I am 45 years old and live in Aurora, Ontario, Canada. I am happily married to a wonderful, loving wife and have two awesome kids. I have worked in the medical research field for 22 years and have a Specialist Honors Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Biology. My career as a Research Technician is in Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms and the Pathways of the Immune System. I performed Research as a Surgical Technologist at the Neuroscience and Mental Health Deptartment at the Hospital
for Sick Children (SickKids), Toronto, Canada. My specialty of expertise is in Stereotaxic Surgery and Optogenetics. I spend my personal time researching in back pain, associated rehabilitation exercises and operating and running this site.
I have suffered from a long history of severe, chronic, lower back pain issues. My issues ranged from herniated disc to severe disc degeneration and countless back spasms. My history of low back pain began in my early twenties with recurring back spasms and occasional disc herniation.
The methods, technique and exercises for the lower back that I learned, developed and used to treat myself in order to recover and avoid low back pain, are what is in the program. The program for most of us would involve initially a heavy investment in time, physical effort, discipline, commitment and trust. We all realize that overcoming lower back pain is a long road and is not easy. A truly effective program for it should not be expected to be easy either. There is a lot that happens to your back before it 'complains' as it is very resilient and tough. The entire research and rehabilitation process required three challenging years to develop and study in order to complete a plan. During this time of trial and error, I was able to achieve a pain free lifestyle. Read more at: LowBackPainProgram.com

Connie has been a history buff all her life, reading biographies and history since grade school. Naturally, when she considered writing a story, her first thoughts turned toward historical fiction. Her novels are set in America's Midwest and reflect her own Wisconsin farming roots. Snippets of her childhood experiences pop up in her stories.
Her life has been the fulfillment of her girlhood dreams: becoming a Lutheran school teacher, marrying a pastor, and having lots of children. Her life has taken her to both coasts (California and New Jersey) as she followed her pastor-husband in his service to various churches with their four sons. She and her husband now live in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. Their four sons are married to wonderful Christian women, with eight grandchildren scattered from California to Washington to British Columbia to Missouri. They try to see most of them at least once a year and are very thankful for Skype!
Connie loves reading books (especially historical romance) and now writing her own stories, inserting experiences from her own teaching days. Visit her blog at conniecortright.com
When Misty left the Amish she barely had a second grade education and suffered severe PTSD caused by the horrifying abuse she suffered as a child and later at the hands of the Amish bishop. Today, ten years later, she is a nursing student, wife and a Child abuse/Sexual assault awareness activist.
The following blurb is from the book, Tears of the Silenced which is based on the authors tragic true life story. One freezing morning in early March I made a dash for a tiny police station in rural Minnesota. I was a frightened Amish girl with no where to go, a second grade education and no ID or social security card.
When I was six years old my family started to live and dress like the Amish. My sister and I were kept as slaves on a mountain ranch where we were subjected to almost complete isolation, sexual abuse and extreme physical violence. My step-father kept a loaded rifle by the door at all times and we were to terrified to try to escape. We knew that no rescue would ever come because only a couple of people even knew we existed and they did not know us well enough to care.
In my late teens my parents feared we would escape and took us to an Amish community where we were adopted and became baptized members. I was devastated to once again find myself in a world of fear, animal cruelty and sexual abuse. Going to the police was forbidden. A few years later I was sexually assaulted by the bishop, I knew I had to get help and one freezing morning in early March I made a dash for a tiny police station in rural Minnesota. When I refused to recant my police report I was excommunicated from the Amish and found myself plummeted into the strange modern world with only a second grade education and no ID or social security card.
To all abuse survivors out there, please be encouraged, the cycle of abuse can be broken. Today, ten years later, I am a nursing student working towards my Masters degree and a child abuse awareness activist.This is my story. Contact info(twitter) @ExAmish101 or email at email@example.com
