Invitation to Launch of Justice for All

  HISTORY BOOK PROMOTES CONFIDENCE AND SELF-ESTEEM Author Marja Bergen had many reasons for writing her recently-released book, Justice for All. The primary reason was to instill confidence in those who need encouragement to be all they can be—those who want a more meaningful life. The book looks at the stories of twelve of history’s […]

It’s not the end of the world

HOPE FOR A LIFE WITH MENTAL ILLNESS Over the last few days my mind went back to Riding the Roller Coaster, a book I had published by Woodlake Publishers in 1999. It wasn’t hard for me to find a publisher at the time because it was one of the first books written by a person […]

Righteous indignation

February 2020   David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands, and I’ll strike you […]

Are you wondering?

JUSTICE FOR ALL: WHERE IS IT? Is it really and truly coming? What’s the hold-up? Yes, it is coming. Of course. And the publisher says it will be ready for publication towards the end of August.

Who am I?

But Moses said to God, “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh…?” (Exodus 3:11) …  “…I am slow of speech and tongue.” The Lord said to him, “Who gave man his mouth? Who makes him deaf or mute? Who gives him sight or makes him blind? Is it not I, the Lord? Now go; […]

On wings like eagles

First published in March 2014 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:30-31   Isn’t it great […]

Give us a voice of our own

A few months ago I published a little booklet called We Are Real People. One of the points it makes is that we are not always given the opportunity to speak for ourselves.  Others speak for us, expressing our needs, speaking about us. But do they really know us or understand us?
