Stellar Nomomated Gospel Recording Artist Jonathan Valencia returns to Good Deeds - Dr. Renee Sunday.Jonathan Valencia is a 12 year old who loves Jesus. At the early age of 3, Jonathan’s idea of play was preaching on his Karaoke machine. Jonathan has always been recognized as being deeply grounded in God’s word and bold about his walk with Jesus. Many Pastors would often state that Jonathan was a little preacher. As for me, I refer to him as my tugboat because he has pulled me along in my spiritual walk. Being inspired by God, I began to do what I love to do which is to write. As a result, my words poured out as a song I titled “Kingdom Bound”. The song was written for Jonathan to use to inspire other youth to pursue their calling now. Matthew 19:14 speaks directly to us on how we should prepare children for the kingdom. Jonathan has a deep love for Jesus and wants to spread the good news to the world. His first release “Kingdom Bound” is for everyone but the target audience is the youth due to Jonathan’s sincere concern for his peers who listen to explicit lyrics. He understands that many of the words they repeat are not good for their minds and many of his peers are not even aware of the things they are speaking on their lives through the lyrics they repeat. Jonathan continues to rely on his faith in God’s word to overcome obstacles that have challenged his faith. The obstacles have caused him to develop a consistent prayer life and commitment to learn scriptures. Jonathan is currently ministering his music in churches and various events. His boldness in serving Jesus is evident when he is on stage professing the name of Jesus.

Joyce Fields started her career as a stenographer at a major utility company in Detroit, working her way up through supervisor of word processing, then as the office manager for an automotive advertising agency, and, lastly, as an executive assistant at a large non-profit health maintenance organization. She is also a professional proofreader (one of her clients was eHarmony, the dating service). She wrote her first book, Line of Serenity (a memoir), in 1997. Being the oldest of seven, in a very happy family, Joyce wanted to capture the way their parents raised them so that the way they did it would not be lost when they all passed on. The book goes from 1944 (the year Joyce was born) through 1977 and includes family recipes and photographs.
Joyce gets her inspiration from living and observing life. In addition to Line of Serenity, she has written eight other books about relationships (The Best Way to Keep a Man is to Let Him Go [among other things]); parenting (Mother's Dozen: An Easy Recipe for Raising GREAT Kids!), which is also available in Spanish; children's fiction (Jette Black and Her Seven Friends); children's non-fiction (THE VISION: Telling Kids That They Can Make the World a Better Place); bullying (Dear Bully: A Collection of Poems about Bullying); the power and simplicity of quotes (My Simple Quotes to Live By); and breast cancer (A Breast Cancer Journey to GREATER Joy! Taking the Fear and Mystery Out of a Breast Cancer Diagnosis).She also wrote three opinion editorials ("Better examples help kids more than political remedies," "The Golden Rule could improve race relations," and "Provide kids with role models, and sell them education,") which were published (verbatim) in The Detroit Free Press.
Most of us feel it but few of us ever say it out loud that the one problem we have with being a good Christian is the pressures that having that title brings with it. We claim that following closely the Ten Commandments is far too rigid and gets harder and harder to up hold. They say that one or several of them are easier to do but to keep faith in each and every one of them presents what appears to be one insurmountable problem. Their answer to this dilemma, throw your hands up and quit. Stop believing and question everything or plainly just pretend. Would you believe me if I told you that the pressures you attribute to being a good Christian has nothing to do with being a good Christian at all. Would you believe me if I told you that being a good Christian is as simple as breathing and rest not with the masses but strictly with the individual? Probably not, but never let it be said that I would allow anything like that to stop me from sharing with you my thoughts on the subject.
