Our Latest Book

Childhood sexual abuse. Abandoned by her father. These traumas caused Michel to have a distorted image of God, so she created a false image – a mask – to hide the image she saw in her mirror. Her identity was found in worldly things, sex, alcohol, gambling, and shopping. Her hateful words reflected her identity. This book reveals her journey of healing from brokenhearted to restored by Jesus Christ.
God removed her mask and uncovered her reality. She discovered God’s true image and her purpose in life. As you take this 14-day healing journey, you will walk through the process of unmasking as God uncovers places in your heart that need healing. He will reveal The Real You, My Beloved.
For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight, in love. Ephesians 1:4


After suffering from childhood sexual abuse, I struggled with identity issues. Working through this devotional led me to see who God has called me to be. This book helped me release my struggles, hurts and failures to God. As I began to trust Him more each day, I saw His great love for me. It was as though the author felt my deepest hidden pains. I am so grateful to have experienced this life changing devotional.
Shermane Reed, Coordinator, Mending the Soul, Lafayette, La.

Michel’s experiences and transformed life are proof of the power of the grace of God. No matter how steeped in sin you are, He wants you to come to Him as you are, and have this life-changing conversation with Him. I hope you allow Michel’s raw and honest words to open your eyes, help you to pour out your story on these pages and most importantly, see His love for you and mend your heart.
Cori Phelps, Covenant Spotlight Magazine, Lafayette, La.

Dad’s War Photos

“When I was age 10, my daddy started showing me his 600 war pictures and telling me his experiences. Later in life, he bought a video camera so he could relate his wartime experiences for history sake, but he got sick and died before he could. This book is to honor his experiences, and to honor the vow I made to him to hold his most valuable war souvenir in high honor – his Japanese war rifle he found in the Philippines.”

Using 400 pictures his father brought back from the South Pacific in WWII, author Neal Bertrand created a timeline and traced his father’s steps from home to boot camp to war and back. Portions of the battalion’s daily journal are included, adding adventure and drama to the story. There are nearly 80 photos of WWII airplanes, some with erotic artwork.

A House For Eliza

A House For Eliza: The Real Story of the Cajuns

There is a misconception that all the Acadians, who were exiled from Nova Scotia in 1755 and migrated to Louisiana, were poor farmers and trappers. The truth is, a group of these Acadians were plantation owners. This is the real story of the “Cajuns” of Louisiana.

Never Say Goodbye

Never Say Goodbye

From the author of “A House for Eliza.” This is a collection of three short stories: “Never Say Goodbye,” “Wind Walkers,” and “After Tomorrow.”

Never Say Goodbye: Lisa Arcenaud lives a life of mystery and excitement until 1880, when the first passenger train arrives in town and turns her life upside down.

Wind Walkers: The Archbishop in France sends two French priests to build a church for the Acadians who were exiled from their Canadian home by the British in 1755. The adventures of these two men give the reader a unique look at the religious traditions and beliefs of these exiles.

After Tomorrow: During the last days of the Civil War, Maries Desportes sends her family away and remains at Belle Rêve Plantation to face alone the occupation of her home by Union General William B. Franklin and his officers.
