STRENGTH FROM WITHIN won 2021 BEST CHRISTIAN FICTION for Texas Authors Institute (TAIH) Awards!
Strength From Within is a stand-alone book. Having said that, some of the characters in this book, do cross-over into the Team A.N.G.E.L. series books. This is the reason it is pictured in the Team Series Books Picture under the "Series Books" page. For more information, feel free to check out the Team A.N.G.E.L. Series books!
Pine Crest is a quiet little Ohio town just outside Cleveland. To the outside world, it seems to function as any other small town. However, upon closer inspection, Stacey and her father, Sam Spencer, discover the dangerous secret that is this town’s reality. Corruption has such a massive stronghold; survival seems to be the way of life.
Asserting her normal independent attitude in this new environment as the new kid in town could find Stacey in trouble. However, the strength inside her forces her not back down. Once Sam figures out what is going on, he cannot turn a blind eye to it either. By fighting back, can the Spencer’s help free this town from its bonds? Will it ignite a spark of hope or an all-out war? What would you do if your town was held captive? Would you comply or would you fight back?
Isaiah 40:31: 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.
What would you do if your town was held captive? Would you comply or fight back?
A portion of the proceeds from Strength From Within will go to “Jenny’s Hope."
“No one should ever have to grieve alone. There is healing found when we share our stories, our fears, and our memories. In 2017, we discovered Wise County Christian Counseling had 59 families with children needing grief counseling on the wait list. We could hardly bear it that 59 sets of parents were on the edge of their seats waiting for a call for help. We prayed, we dreamed, we sought advice. We decided to open Jenny’s Hope, a free grief center for children and adults.”
