Let’s Publish a Book together for Christmas. 

You get books to give as gifts. I give every dime to the less fortunate.

My dear friends, we all forget who we are, often many times during the day, whenever we are anxious or feel unworthy and powerless in any situation.

 

What would happen if Superman forgot who he was?

What if he thought of himself only as Clark Kent? He wouldn’t know he could fly.  Someone would have to tap him on the shoulder and remind him who he really was.  Only then could he fly once again.

Like Superman, we too have great power, and the greatest of
these is the staggering power to love. To love is to give.

But we too need a tap on our shoulders every day, to remind us who we are. Three years ago I began to write a series of daily meditations on the Path of Yeshua for Peace and Power in this life, using fresh metaphors and stories that illuminated His way for me. I addressed them to myself and to my children, and I called them The Forgotten Way Meditations. Why?

 

We all forget who we are, every day.

I eventually whittled them down to 21—only a few pages
each—deeply impactful and radically life-changing. In the end The Forgotten Way of Yeshua is letting go of who we think we are to discover who we really are. The first true glimpse you have of how your Father sees you will surely blow your mind. A pastor and good friend of mine, Bill Vanderbush, eventually convinced me to publish The Forgotten Way, but I didn’t
want to publish it through traditional means. Even more, I didn’t want to make any money from it. So I decided to publish a special version of The Forgotten Way this Christmas with you, my readers, in a charitable way.

 

Here’s How It Works

We join together to publish this special edition and in exchange I’ll send you books for yourself and all those on your Christmas list.

I’ll then give 100% of the proceeds and give it to the less fortunate among us this Christmas. I don’t make a dime. After all, it was Jesus who said I was hungry and you didn’t feed me, I was in prison and you didn’t visit me. 

 

This Christmas, give the gift of life-giving words

The First Edition is divided into three parts:

  • The first 50 pages reflects on my own journey.
  • The main section consists of the 21 meditations, one for each day for three weeks.
  • The last 50 pages consist of over 300 scriptural references from the Meditations and additional reflections on those references by Bill Vanderbush.

I return to writing novels this January, but I urge you to
take this dive into the cleansing waters of life-giving truth in the new year,
by yourself or with a group of friends. Make it your new year’s resolution:
Only twenty one days, one meditation each day, and I promise that you’ll never
see yourself or your world in the same way again.

    Amazed at this project and how personal it is. You’ve taken a gift God has given you in writting and used it to encourage and push people towards Christ. Also amazing at how quickly this project is being funded. Over $20,000 in the first day alone. You’re in my prayers, Ted. I thank you for following God’s call on your life. It has allowed this 29 year old to be on this journey with you for over half his life. Dive deep always and thank you again.

    I really benefited from the initial ebook. I’ve referred it to so many people already. Thank you so much for sharing your journey. This book was just what I needed to bring me back into communion with God. I’m going to try to save to get the 5 pack to study with my family. Thank you again.

    I’ve recently begun the journey to live in my true identity, so this project really speaks life to me! Thank you for sharing this with us and allowing us to be a part of it. Thank you for your obedience in writing truth as well. I will always treasure your books, and I can’t wait to digest The Forgotten Way Meditations and allow Jesus to speak to me through the pages. Your ebook was incredible!

    Just ordered 3 and forwarded the info to my brother. We’re fans, Ted! I’ve got every book you’ve written so far that’s available on B & N; I’ve re-read all of them. Thank you for this…what a great way to show the love of Yeshua to the hurting world we live in. I’m diving deep!
