When E.F. Hutton talks, people listen. When God speaks…

Reblogged from debpalmerauthor.wordpress.com. I love this story. So many times we say God isn’t speaking to us, when really it’s us who have become too busy to listen to His still small voice.

nameWho remembers the 1970’s E.F. Hutton commercials? My favorite shows two men on a plane conversing across the aisle while disinterested bystanders sleep, read, gaze out the windows. That is, until the name E.F. Hutton drops, causing a collective hush, among the eager eavesdroppers. The ad ends with the famous, unforgettable tag line: “When E.F. Hutton talks, people listen.”

What about when God speaks? Do we lean in, hand cupped over ear, holding our breath in anticipation of His words? Speaking personally, I can say He knows how to get my attention. I’m not talking about an audible voice booming down from heaven saying stuff like “Deb, stop that!… you know better.” No, that’s more likely my own busy-body mind intruding on my peace: named “guilt.” I’m referring to a distinct voice in my head, a message arriving in an envelope of peace, reassurance, and clarity. A voice heard through…

Authors and Bloggers Against Piracy Blog Tour

This is a great idea! Let’s band together as authors and fight piracy while giving away good reading material to all of our loyal readers out there, and to everyone who enjoys books. Also going to try to share this on my website on google+.

Maegan Provan, Author

You know, you hear about authors having their books stolen all the time, and you pray it never happens to you. Yesterday, the latest website to illegally distribute books from hard working authors was exposed. The community rose up and has done a lot to have those books removed. Of course, the sad fact remains that that won’t be the last website to provide illegal downloads of books.

Tricia pointed out to me that simply holding copyright doesn’t mean as much as it should. Anyone can still come in and take your hard work simply because they want to. If you don’t have the money to hire a lawyer to fight the person that stole your work, you are out of luck. She also made an excellent point. People think that because we are published, we are all like J.K. Rowling, rolling around in money and on the cusp of a…

One thing I forgot to mention in Part 2 is that I never received any counseling for my temper/anger issues. I didn't go to any anger management classes or read any books on the subject. I prayed and God answered. Within the first year of our tour in Germany, my husband stopped going to Bible … Continue reading My Testimony Part 3

Learning About this Toxic Mineral Could Save Lives! Asbestos Awareness Week April 1st – 7th

In other words, this could affect anyone. We all need to be careful in this life. We are prone to take our lives and health for granted until things get serious.

Deb Palmer

asbestos awareness weekPicture this: A sweet child skips down the sidewalk, lost in the land of imagination. She’s wearing daddy’s work jacket like a super hero cape, spinning, clicking her heels. Dwarfed inside the jacket with faint smells of her protector, she’s safe, invincible.

Decades later, in 2005, this child, Heather Von St. James, is diagnosed with Pleural Mesothelioma, a rare cancer caused by exposure to high levels of asbestos. In Heather’s case, it was as a result of secondhand exposure while dancing around in her father’s jacket, oblivious of its lethal potential.

April 1-7th is Asbestos Awareness Week. If you’re like me, you’ve heard asbestos is dangerous and keep this information filed away in case you ever remodel a home from the 1950s. Sadly, the asbestos disease threat is not something scary our parents dealt with, it is still lurking around in our modern day lives.

Here are just a few…
