Isaiah Cadre Series

~ Without readers, there would be no point in writing. For some of you, this series will be just an enjoyable read … and that’s okay. But for many of you, this story will be part of your spiritual journey. For a choice few of you, the stories in this series will reflect your past journey, validate what you’ve been through, and possibly help you work through where you need to turn next. It’s for you that I write. - Alyce-Kay

Kelly, a junior at Westmont College in 1981, suffers a traumatic experience which changes her life.  Can she rebuild with the help of her family, friends, and college community?  How will the trauma affect her faith?  What joys can be uncovered in the healing process?  And will she ever be able to love again?  
This companion guide to Beauty for Ashes allows the reader to use the novel as a Bible study, whether in a group setting or individually. Explanations are given, along with suggestions for using this in a Cadre (and how to start a Cadre), a Sunday School or Bible study, for homeschool or family devotions, or in one's individual study or journaling practice. Questions encourage the reader to dig deep, finding the ways Scripture answers the needs we face today, and using the principles illustrated by the characters to establish an intimate and effective personal walk with God.

A Word Behind You
Determining God's will is an area that often leaves believers feeling ill-equipped in their faith. And what happens when you think you've figured it out ... but it all falls apart? Sheila is a senior at Westmont College, who falls in love with a man of a different race. As they struggle to reconcile their relationship with conflicting beliefs and expectations, they learn to discern God's Will for themselves as individuals and as a couple. This is also the continuing story of Kelly & Matt and their friends, following the first book in the series: Beauty For Ashes.

Springs of Deliverance
How much responsibility does someone need to take for their actions if they’re mentally ill … especially if they can’t remember them? If you forgive someone, does that mean that you completely open your life to them? Is there a place for protecting oneself and one’s family, after a perpetrator has been forgiven? These questions and more are explored as the saga of the Isaiah Cadre continues. Two men especially grapple with the issues of forgiveness and deliverance. Homelessness and mental illness become part of the equation.

Search For Hidden Treasure  This is not a Bible study. Search for Hidden Treasure is the type of program which is foundational to good study of the Bible. Too often, we set out to dig into the Word, to study every phrase and nuance, without any idea of the wider picture. To coin a popular phrase, we can’t see the forest for the trees. This is why Search for Hidden Treasure is not a Bible study: It’s a Bible reading program. The idea is to read through the Bible to gain perspective, to see the whole picture. This way, when you’re ready to really dig in and study Scripture, you’ll know where the writers -- and ultimately, God -- are coming from. As you get to know the whole Bible, the little pieces will begin to make more and more sense. This approach is appropriate for anyone who wants to know their Bible better. It's refreshing for those who have studied the Bible for years, and it's illuminating for those who are opening their Bible for the first time. Adults may use it alone or in a group. It's wonderful for family devotions or homeschool. Young children often have incredible insights. If they aren't old enough to write yet, an older child or adult can write the answers they give. This is a 44 week course -- perfect for a school year. If you're doing this on your own, it allows for 8 weeks' break, if you'd like to complete it in a year. When you complete the workbook, you'll have a lifelong treasury of lessons learned and prayers answered.
