Dale Satterthwaite Release

This book has been a favorite of mine all my life since elementary school! I enjoyed his sermons and found they fulfilled a spiritual need, offering encouragement, and the ability to focus on the important things of life.

Our family first heard Pastor Dale Satterthwaite speak at a National Conference get together of Baptist Churches. The children’s program was great, but I wanted to get something more spiritually nourishing. My folks reluctantly decided to allow me to sit with them and resisted the efforts of the ushers to send me with the “little kids.”

I took notes and listened with great interest to the message from Romans 8:28 about how all things work together for good to God’s people. My folks were deeply involved in a local church, but began to extricate themselves from the various duties, so we could attend Sunday evening services, even though we had to drive over an hour to reach Calvary Baptist Church.

We soon left the local church to attend the morning Sunday services in Los Angeles as well. The time spent under Pastor Dale’s ministry deeply impacted our family at all levels. My mother extracted herself from her jobs and schooling so she could be a stay at home mother and home school us children. Daily family devotions became a daily rule, and Bible memory came first. Even the long trips to the church were spent memorizing new verses, and reviewing the quickly growing list of verses and chapters.

This book has been available in both printed form and digital format for Bible software, but this version is a complete new edit of the work. The many Scriptural mentions have had the references added, and a few footnotes have been added. Careful indexing has been added as well as a Scripture index. Typos and other refinements have been completed as well.

It is my desire that this book will find its way in the hands of many of God’s people, so they too can be encouraged in a special way to pay attention to their spiritual lives and begin to see God’s hand in their lives each day. Please take the time to invest in your spiritual future.

Website and Focal Change

It is been a long and difficult road that this company has followed. It started long ago as a part of my parents household, and Ive taken it in hopes of continuing on with it. Over the last seven years my health has continued to erode, and helpers have fled, making this a most difficult project. Then you add the hostilities of the Bible software companies, and you have a very lonely life.

Before my last life-threatening health episode, we began to shift from primarily Bible software books, two printed and EPUB books. We quickly found that there was more interest in these areas, and a much wider audience. Frankly, even I hate to try to read a book in a Bible software program. They are great for quick searches over large libraries, but miserable to have to actually read large sections in them.

At this point we have released several titles in print, and find that the old website layout was good, but to slanted to Bible software users. We believe the best way forward will be to simply start rebuilding the website from the beginning.

Because there is much information that had been assembled and carefully researched over the last 20 years, we hope to not lose all this important information. We have photos of authors, biographies on them, as well as the book titles we have edited and produced. These are the elements we hope to reintroduce, as we rollout our books in print. All of the Bible software elements will simply be destroyed.

We want to thank our faithful customers, for their many prayers on our behalf, and we regret we were not able to rule out the whole 12 shelves of books that were planned. We do hope that those same customers will find our printed works even more valuable in their ministries.

Please bear with us as we continue the endeavor to convert are many valuable books (around 200 volumes) into usable printed text and e-books. We cant wait to see where God may take this.
