The wife of Messianic field missionary, Ron Michelson, I love returning to churches where he preached. While chatting with friends we'd made, I often heard that they hadn't share the blessing Ron brings when he connects the dots between the Old and New Testaments because they feared losing their friends.
While praying about this God reminded me that a Messianic publisher friend of mine wanted to publish my work. With the leading of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit), we meet. Afterward, I began to write praying that readers would love and gift these Messianic books to their friends ~ whether they believed or not. Some did, most did not. However, the goal God impressed upon my heart then is as firm as it was when I began this work ~ that I show the reader Jewish people who experience need, fear, repentance, faith, slips, God's grace & His forever forgiveness ~ the gift we all are blessed to receive when we believe in His son ~ Messiah Yeshua ~ Jesus Christ!
If you got a Kindle 4 Christmas, I hope you'll fill it with my three Inspirational Romantic Family Faith Fictions women enjoyed when they read the story Naomi told me.
And if your friends were given a Kindle 4 Hanukkah, Christmas, or any other gifting time, I hope you'll ask if they's like to read the story Naomi told me. A story of fear, the unfulfilled promise of love, betrayal, sorrow, joy, and a faith that overcame all of this to receive the blessing of the love that denied her. http://amzn.to/1IoUSMY
In this first book of Naomi’s faith journey we see what happens when we deny who we are and what we believe to achieve our dreams. Bound by secrets, trapped by choices, Naomi is about to discover that life is not what you plan but what happens.
Naomi journeys from adolescence to womanhood, from frightened isolation and captivity to the noble status of heiress. Trapped in a life where all who know her think her a saint, saddled with a mission and responsibilities, Naomi agrees to marry to sidestep more issues and the couples tangled web escalates for neither are what they seem to be.
As a Jew, Naomi knows the promise of Genesis 12:3 by heart and often repeats “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” When she hears Isaiah 53:5 “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed,” will she believe?
EDITORIAL REVIEW: “A faith based read about love, life and forgiveness there are things we are commissioned to do in our Christian walk, but life choices can make these things seem to be pushed far back and our fleshy desires forefront.” — Reviews by SweetReadz Mag
In this second of the six faith stories, we see a bride in flight rather than deal with the fall out of revealed secrets. Now Naomi has nothing and no one. But God is about to gift her everything if, finding herself embraced by people who care, she discovers the ‘Lover of her Soul’.
Will Naomi’s friendship with a ‘Titus 2 Woman’ and the blessings found at ‘Blessings Rock’ bring her to Christ? Can a husband who refuses to forgive his wife handle what he discovers when visiting his family? Is there is more between Chaz and Naomi than their unfulfilled longing?
Upon hearing Genesis 12:3 “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you,” quoted by his family for the first time after his hidden reality is revealed, will God show Chaz what is true?
When Elí tells Chaz, “No, I am perfectly sane. It is the world that is crazy because they do not realize the one who died for our sins was the Messiah of Israel—the Jewish Savior!” will the words break though Chaz’s unbelief or can finding a dreidel at his uncles archaeological dig help Chaz become the man God created him to be?

EDITORIAL REVIEW: “A heroine learning to love the man she needs and a hero in love with a woman whose duty is tearing her apart. Together they find the strength to face their fears with love built upon an unshakable faith. Author Paula Rose Michelson captures the complexities of human emotion like few authors I've read. Passion, duty, fear, revenge, courage, prejudice and love are woven into this truly gripping story which so well illustrates that which makes us human.” - William Struse
