|Two women. A friendship forged in war, destroyed by a
dark secret. Now one's fear of God and the other's faith in Him
collide in a different kind of war—and only one of them can win.
|Yep, you found me.
Things have definitely changed in my world
the past few years, but I'm still here.
And since the shelf life of an old book
never seems to end these days,
my stories are still around too.
They're certainly not masterful works of
literary brilliance, but, ya know? They're probably
not the worst stories ever written either.
If you happened to come across one
and now find yourself here out of good-old-fashioned
curiosity, welcome. Thanks for stopping by.
|Once Chris fought for her country.
Now she's fighting for her faith.
And she's about to fight for her life.
|Chris saves a child from an abusive father, but then must
face her own past, when no one was there to save her.
|Four warriors. Two rival gangs.
Is faith enough to win peace on the streets of Kimberley Square?
|But, first things first, okay?
The most important thing you will find at this site is not information about me or my books.
Let's face it. My books and I are so over the hill it ain't even funny.
My prayer is that, while you are here, you will take a few moments to read about the most
important thing in our universe—in your universe, whether you realize it or not.
What have you done, what will you do, what have you decided
about the Man, Jesus of Nazareth?
Do you know what the Bible says about Jesus?
Do you believe what the Bible says about Jesus?
Do you care? Oh, I hope you do.
If you don't care now, you will care, very much, one day soon when you
stand alone before Him. But, by then, I'm sorry to say, it will be too late.
If you do care, and think you know Him, are you sure—completely sure—He knows you?
BE SURE. TODAY. RIGHT NOW. PLEASE.
On November 8th, 1972, I was seven years old, and I made the best decision of my life.
I read in the Holy Bible that Jesus of Nazareth loved me and died for me so that I could
know Him and love Him too. It was an easy decision to put my life into His hands,
one I have never regretted. My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ faithfully
forgives me, loves me, and lives in my heart.
He has become my life, and for that I will always be grateful.
If you would like to learn more about Jesus ..., to let His love reach you right where you are,
to feel His forgiveness and to experience peace like you have never known before, you can.
Just believe. And then receive. Be sure.
It truly is that simple.

|The Homeland Heroes Series ...
... is a four-part series of Christian novels
falling under the genres of contemporary relational drama and women's fiction,
focusing on the friendship of two women who meet
in the U.S. Army in 1991 during Operation Desert Shield,
and set throughout the first nine months of 1996
in a neighborhood inside the heart of Portland, Oregon,
a neighborhood its residents have affectionately named Kimberley Square.
|Surrounded by the oppressive terrain, weather, and tension of Operations
Desert Shield and Storm, soldiers Erin Grayson and Christina McIntyre shared a
special bond. But when an ugly secret from Chris’s past shattered their close
friendship, they went their separate ways without even a good-bye.
Chris has spent her entire life running from the past, hiding her deepest
secrets from those who care for her most. And now, five years after the war,
tragedy has once again stolen her hope for a new life. She’s ready to end it all.
It’s a good day ... to die.
Overcoming her own anger and doubt, Erin rushes to Chris’s Colorado cabin.
When Chris’s fear of God and Erin’s faith in Him collide, they are involved
in a different kind of war that only one of them can win.
As Chris wrestles with grief, fear, and ghosts from the past,
Erin fights to pull her from the brink of self-destruction. She will not
lose Chris again. Chris’s life is at stake ... as well as her soul.
|This is no mere storm. It’s a deluge of catastrophic proportions.
Swollen by record rains and a ten-inch snowmelt, the Willamette River is
hammering Portland, Oregon, with the flood of the century.
In Chris McIntyre’s heart, a different kind of flood—a rising torrent of
emotions—threatens to sweep her away from the community of Kimberley
Square. Her newfound faith keeps her from running. But how can she stay?
Her push-the-limits personality may have made her a perfect soldier, but it
sets her apart from the people at her church. And it sets her at odds with
Scott Mathis, the husband of her closest friend, Erin. Fearing for Erin’s safety,
Scott resents his wife’s high-risk friendship with Chris.
But when Scott and Chris are forced together to help Kimberley Square
residents ride out the storm, a different, equally lethal danger
descends on them. Death or redemption rest in the hands
of one person—a woman with a warrior’s heart.
|Nine-year-old Alaina Walker is being abused. Christina McIntyre is sure of it.
Eight and a half months pregnant, Erin Mathis is in no position to prevent
Chris from confronting Alaina’s father. Despite Erin’s concerns, Chris finds
herself in the Walker’s living room, face to face with Alaina’s father. The
moment quickly escalates into chaos. Chris subdues the man long enough for
the police to arrive, but in the renewed chaos following their arrival, Chris is
handcuffed and nearly arrested—until a paramedic sees through her behavior
to the underlying cause of her panic. He helps her calm down, then gently
persuades her to talk about memories she has long kept buried.
Little by little, as their relationship builds, Chris shares more and more with
this handsome new friend. But dredging up vile secrets from her past causes
nightmares to return, and each new relived horror brings her closer to the
inevitable: a long overdue confrontation with her own father.
A father she swore she would never see again.
A father she swore she would never forgive.
|Kimberley Street, Portland, Oregon. Light-years away from anywhere
Chris McIntyre ever dreamed she would live.
Friends share this home with her, friends who have become her new
family, the only real family she has ever known. Kimberley Street is home,
in the truest sense of the word. But it’s going to take a hero’s heart to
keep it safe in the middle of a gang war.
When the Kimberley Street community is caught between two rival gangs
battling for territory, it’s a war far uglier than anything Chris or her warrior
comrades ever saw in Desert Storm. She’ll need all her wits about her to
protect the people and place she loves. But love itself can also be
distracting and dangerous in its own way.
Jesus Christ gave Chris her life back and freed her from her past.
Now is she willing to give up everything to serve Him—even if it
means saying no to Jason? And can He protect the ones she
loves in a world where a child can kill without mercy?
|The message Greg Laurie
shared with the world on
September 29th, 2013,
at Harvest America in Philadelphia,
was the best presentation
of the Good News of Jesus Christ
I have ever heard.
Again, I plead with you,
if you are not sure what you believe about
Jesus—or if you even need Him, please (please!)
take one hour, listen to every word Greg says,
and hear the Truth. Through his words, allow the
Spirit of the Living God to reveal to you
just how much you do need Jesus.
in this universe,
there is no one you need more.
|Don't have one hour? How about half an hour?
Greg's presentation of the Good News is incredible, but Billy Graham's is even more ... incredible.
And half as long. It's got music! And two incredible stories of how Jesus transforms lives.
