Christ's Unconditional Love and Sacrifice





“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)





“‘We are going up to Jerusalem,’ he said, ‘and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and teachers of the law, They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles, who will mock him and spit on him, flog him and kill him. Three days later he will rise.’” (Mark 10: 33 – 34)




“On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He i…

Looking Out The Window: Prayer, Miracles and Testimonies. Ada Brownell Talks About Her Collection of Fifty-five Articles, What Prayer Can Do

A Warm Welcome to Ada Brownell
Hi Ada, first, tell us a little about yourself.

I’ve been writing for decades and yet I still discover things I want to tell people through the printed page. One of the ways to do this is op-ed pieces for the two newspapers who accept my opinion writing. My next one will be about how Christian missionaries have changed the world in my lifetime.

Why do you write?

I feel called by God to share some of the important things in life I’ve seen and learned. When I retired from the newspaper, I thought of writing medical material, such as how to care for a baby who has the croup, how to bring down a fever, and that sort thing that new parents don’t seem to know how to do. We lived 90 miles from a doctor when my first two children were young and there are still people like that. But using my talent strictly for Lord won.


Tell us about your latest book.

What Prayer Can Do is a collection of 55 of my articles published in The Pentecostal Evangel. The magazine for 100…

Donna Shares The Story Behind Her Book, A Train Ride to Heartbreak

The idea for this story came from a love of a movie and a friend with a great story to share.

The movie was “The Fugitive”, both the original series pilot and the more recent remake. I loved the idea of a train ride leading to a second chance.

My friend had recently taken a train ride from Denver to San Francisco, and she shared several delightful stories. I wondered if a train ride might be like a cruise in that it would provide an insulated environment where the travelers might do something they’d never done before. If so, this was perfect fodder for a romance, much like the old TV show, “The Love Boat”.

And then I saw “Murder on the Orient Express”, and as a lover of anything Agatha Christie, decided to incorporate a few of the details …
