I Like your site very much and what you have written. Keep up the good fight of faith using the weapons and gifts the Great Giver, Has given you! Praise and glory to Jesus Christ! John 3:16 Psalm 121 Shalom!

Don, We communicated via e-mail about six months ago describing our POD published books. Now I discover you are entering into the publishing business. Bravo for you! Congratulations with my prayers and support. If there's anything I can do to help, let me know. I would also be interested in submitting my books to you when you're ready for submissions. You may recall from our previous communications, that my work is Christian-based also. My goal is to write books that would advance the Kingdom of God and offer a light to the unsaved world. With God's Blessings, Don Helling

I'm very pleased to announce that the October 2008 issue of our online book review magazine "Reviewer's Bookwatch" features a review of "All the Stillness of the Wind". Here is the review: Reviewer's Bookwatch: October 2008 James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief Midwest Book Review 278 Orchard Drive, Oregon, WI 53575 Reviewer's Choice All the Stillness of the Wind Donald James Parker Sword of the Spirit Publishing 9781234567897 $12.95 Whether seeking personal peace, finding the path to redemption or satisfying a need for knowledge; your journey could begin by reading this book! A 'parable' is an avenue used to get a point across, by telling a fictional story, allowing the listener to make their own conclusions. It usually pertains to a moral or spiritual idea. Jesus was famous for his use of parables, and I believe that this fictional story would best be described as a modern day parable. Jeremy is dating Maria and coincidentally, his father, Paul is dating Maria's mother, Lisa. The women are devote Christians, who know their futures lie with men of similar beliefs. Jeremy has already studied the theory of evolution and concluded that there must have been a creator. The men set out to research religion and it's many viewpoints, with special focus on Christianity, the arguments for and against. They share their newfound knowledge and acceptance with the women, as their beliefs are discussed or debated. The comfort level and bantering conversations between the four characters made me laugh, as I learned right along with them. Throughout their search, they 'weed through', accept or reject different viewpoints on what man must do, to inherit eternal life. Along the way, they discover there are numerous ways to reconnect with God and inner peace, by way of music, prayer and more. The couples celebrate their first Christmas together, the happy memory quickly shattered by a horrific accident, which would shake even the strongest of believers' faith. It is then that we learn about grace, "the ability to forgive people for messing up" and about the five steps of grieving. This is one of the many times that Satan feeds our anger and, only once he has been renounced, is the burden lifted. Love and faith are a true believers path to a good life, and the key to the much believed in, Heaven. The author, Donald James Parker, has told a brilliant version of a parable, and shown us a way to begin the search for truth. It is easy to read and identify with, not heavy on scriptures. He provides a few web sites as well as scriptures for future research. Donald James Parker, graduated for Dakota State University with a degree in secondary education, then went on to study computer programming. After 25 years of IT work, his passion for writing took over, the outcome to our benefit, is a book series involving two generations of the Masterson family. One never knows what the future holds, but I am sure more books are to follow. He is currently working on other books "engaging the cultural climate of the 21st century." To review this book was incredible timing. Either divine intervention or just plain coincidence, as it came to me in a time of many questions. It has had a positive influence on my life, by encouraging me to reconnect with my roots and beliefs, on my own search for peace. I highly recommend reading this book Cheryl Ellis, Reviewer You have complete permission to utilize the review in any manner you deem useful for marketing and promotion.

Hi, thank you so much for the friend's request on shoutlife. :) I know you said on your web site you are not taking submissions at this time..but I am walking out on the water here and asking you if you would be interested in Ed? Who is Ed? Well Ed is an angel from God and is on a big mission from God also. Take a look around my web sites at WWW.TLMOOREBOOKS.COM & WWW.MYSPACE.COM/TLMOORE & WWW.MYSPACE.COM/EDONMYSHOULDER I am looking for a publisher to pick up on book two of the series. I have always said Ed would be bigger than Harry Potter someday. :) With a much better message to share with the world. God bless you always. Terri

Dear Brother Don: You have launched a lofty project here; I would be happy to become a member and help any way I can. I like the part where you state you do not want any "fluff" feel good material, but writings that challenge Christians to deal with the reality of what the Gospel truly requires. When you are ready, I can email you both books I have written, as well as several glowing revies. To learn a little more about me, please visit my web site at :

Yay!! I am so thankful God led you to take this giant step of faith. I'm sure He will greatly bless your efforts as you glorify Him.
Kristi Neace

Wonderful! I pray God's richest blessings on your endeavor. When I befriended you at Shoutlife on behalf of our church's page, for which I'm administrator, I wondered whether it was you when I noticed the location. I'm glad it is. May the Lord use this endeavor to His glory until He snatches out the church!
Hope Chastain

I LOVE your logo! Have you thought about publishing Bible studies? I have one that I'm shopping...
Stacey Dale

I just read the purpose of your new publishing company and I pray that it will bring God all the glory. May the Spirit guide you as to what authors to accept. It will be exciting to see where the Lord takes you and the company. To God be the glory.

Congratulations on a well-designed site and on your publishing. May you flourish.
Eric Johnson

The introductory page of your new publishing group hooked me. I almost was brought to tears as I read what is coming up. We as the 'intelligent' race on this planet have missed the mark by miles as we 'think' we are doing God's bidding against the enemy. Yes, we have many obstacles to overcome to be truly in sync with the Spirit. I hope to not only read Donald James Parker's book that is coming soon but the others that explore the topics we need to learn about to walk with God the way He intended.
Pam Williams

My friend sent me the information on your new web site, and I am really excited to learn more. It sounds incredible, and way past it's time to be started. Thanks so much
Helen Boyer

Congratulations on your Grand Opening! I pray that God will bless this new venture.
Wilma Steiner

I'm so impressed with this idea of a publishing company that will adhere to Christian principles. Satan is pushing awfully hard to tear us away from good books and other Christ-like forms of entertainment. Thank you and best wishes in your endeavors. Don, best of luck with your book, and those in the future that I know will edify. Renie
Irene Gardner

Robin Shope

Congratulations on your new ventyre! Prayers and blessings for great success!
Cyndy Salzmann

Hi FB friend...great site...I would come to the grand opening tonight but I am here in So Calif so that won't work...LOL God bless you in this endeavor....
Susan Singbusch

Thank you for publishing books that are clean and of a Godly nature. Before I got saved I was into romance novels the horrible kind. After I got saved I feared I'd never get to read another novel. Then I find out about Christian romance and thriller authors I didn't even think there was such a thing. It's just amazing. I can read good clean novels and don't need a cleansing when I'm done. Thanks! I would love to read this book too. God Bless you.

OMIGOSH, Don, what a GREAT idea!!! I love your logo and love the premise for Reforming the Potter's Clay -- which hopefully can rival the success of Harry Potter! I pray God blesses the socks off of you and this company.
Julie Lessman

Hello, it's a pleasure to know that you exist simply to glorify God in publishing books written by Christians. For a while I had problems getting rid of my worldly romance novels because I thought that once I become a Christian I could never read a novel again, but now I find that I can read and these are clean and are written about believers, it's simply amazing! so Thank you. I would love to read this book too.
