Meet Author Aria Craig: Raised in a south suburb of Chicago with two siblings by a single mother, Aria Craig lived a life full of successes and challenges - from the zeal to strive, receive higher education, and succeed to being bullied, sexual abused and fatherless. While learning from her mom's experiences, she chose to make wiser decisions once becoming a single parent in her early 20's. Aria was determined to excel against stigmas and stereotypes. With a spirit of tenacity and character of trailblazing, she pursued a Bachelors in Technical Management and Masters in Business Administration while raising her son by encouraging his leadership abilities, talents and victories.
Even though her journey was in finance, she always found joy and therapy in writing. From the praises and compliments that she received about parenting her son, Aria decided to write a series of books entitled The Single Mother Diaries - empowerment tools that offer tips on single, divorced and co-parenting strategies. She has mentored other single parents with making wiser decisions that benefit them and the development of their children (of all ages). Aria is now married with three beautiful step-children and has established a wonderful newfound connection with her father and paternal family.

Authoress Queen Anoshi Is a native of Beaufort, S.C. She was born with the gift of making up stories on a whim. She started writing poetry as a young child which was her outlet in conquering different adversities in her life. It wasn’t until her service in the Army and her first deployment to Bosnia that she began writing short stories as a way to pass the time. She felt her writings could take her to a different time and place and that she could become and do anything that her mind could conceive. From that point, her love for fictional romance began to expound. She takes her personal experienced with love, heartbreak and finding that special person and uses them as a key element in her creative writings. She believes that nothing can be written without having parts of the writer in it. She wants her readers to relate and connect to her personally as if they walked with her every day. She wants them all to become part of her, “Writer’s Soul”. Only then can they understand her passion for life and love. She writes romance novels, both erotic and paranormal. She also writes poems and short stories that related to the drama of finding and conquering that awesome love. She is ready to share her imagination in love and romance with all that is willing to ride with her. Get ready for your imagination to go wild. Welcome to the world of ANOSHI!

James L. Bailey is interviewed as the author of the Contrast Community which is an intense discovery of the Sermon on the Mount and it's meaning. It deals with the beattitudes which appeals to those who have emptiness and desire mercy to those who have fullness and can give. He approaches the book as a tool for the church to use a transformative power to minister to the external world by employing lessons Jesus gave like turning the other cheek, giving the cloak off your back, walking the extra mile for someone. He also tackles broader lessons of Christ on adultery, anger and its potential damage and how to become perfect in Christ (don't swear, express hatred). The church can use these basic precepts as an effective ministry to help those who are suffering in their local community. He also explains the difference of believers in the 1st Century church who were rabbinical Jews, Pharisees, Gentiles and how Jewish converts had to deal with critics to come full circle in the Judeo-Christian belief and accept the Messiah.
James Bailey graduated from Capital University (1960) and Trinity Lutheran Seminary (1964) in Columbus, Ohio, before earning a Ph.D. in New Testament Studies at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland (1967). After pastoring in Cincinnati, Ohio, Jim taught at Trinity Lutheran Seminary (1970-74), Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota (1975-85), and Wartburg Theological Seminary (1985-2003). Jim is now the John S. and William A. Wagner Professor Emeritus of Biblical Theology at Wartburg Seminary, having retired from full-time teaching in 2003. Jim has published several Bible studies for the church and is co-author of Literary Forms in the New Testament. He most recently published Contrast Community: Practicing the Sermon on the Mount, the topic for his session during Re-formation and Renewal. Jim and his wife Judy still reside in Dubuque, Iowa.
