    FBI UNIVERSITY

    in Self Help

    FBI University is a school of Faith Based Instructions. Wherein, we extract the wisdom of God from the text of scripture, fashion it into practical principles of instructions, and present them through daily devotionals. Obedience to these instructions turns beliefs into behavior that advances our economical, emotional, and intellectual wellbeing. Now stay tuned as John Marshall teaches you how that by following instructions you coach yourself into the Champion Circle.


    Jesus never sought to change the quality of one’s existence through prayer alone. Jesus sought to change the quality of life by issuing a set of instructions. Even to Lazarus, who had been dead for four days, Jesus gave a set of instructions, “Lazarus, come forth” (John 11:43). Had Lazarus dishonored the instructions, he would have remained dead. His quality of life changed due to his willingness to honor the set of instructions that Jesus issued to him. Prayer is a powerful tool. I continually use that God-authorized empowerment tool. However, do not seek to alter your course in life by prayer alone. God seeks to improve your life by giving you a set of instructions.

    Lets Talk with Rachel & Bennet Guest Sarah Zettel

    in Pop Culture

    Huffington Post columnist Rachel Thompson and Critic/writer/columnist for Night Owl Magazine and Affaire De Couer Bennet Pomerantz discuss media topics with guests.

Le Guin, that cemented her desire to be a writer.  Her first short story was published in 1986, and her first novel, the space opera RECLAMATION appeared eight years later.  Since then, she has written over 30 novels under 5 different names, across the whole range of genres, , including science fiction, fantasy, young adult, romance and mystery.

    Author Jacqueline Garlick brings steampunk to life on Authors on the Air LIVE

    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes Jacqueline Garlick to the show.  Jackie and I chat about her steampunk novels, her YA series and her new book about speed writing plots.  This is going to be a fun and interesting program. Listen LIVE from any Wi-Fi enabled device at 9pm ET / 6pm PT in the link provided.  


    ABOUT JACKIE:  


    I'm Jacqueline Garlick, author of young adult and new adult fiction. I love strong heroines, despise whiny sidekicks, and adore a good story about a triumphant underdog. (Doesn't everyone?) I have an on-going love/hate relationship with chocolate, grammar, and technology? I prefer creating things to cleaning things, and I love cinnamon tea. There will always be tea. 

    I've been called the Quentin Tarantino of YA, because of my edgy, risk-taking, Tim Burton-esque style writing. I've also been called Little Erin, because of my passion for righteousness. In my former life I was a teacher, so you'll have to excuse that. To find out more about me, and other exciting writing adventures click: www.jacquelinegarlick.com, and be sure to sign up for my NEWSLETTER and get your free read while you're there!
