Raven H. Price
The Plan begins with Rachel as a young child having a very special relationship with Jesus. Her new friend comforts her and encourages her but they lose contact in time as the world steers her down a different path. Horrors upon horrors happen until she is face to face once again with her Savior. At the age of thirty-four, she learns to rely and depend on her childhood friend once again. As her life and lifestyle dramatically changes the Lord introduces her to the love of her life.
Experience causes her to have compassion when young romances go wrong, this brings her to a situation at church where she sees many teenage girls enthralled over a fictional movie character. The movie, a love story between a mortal and a vampire, is not Rachel’s usual kind of entertainment. With an open mind, she watches the movie knowing that she is being lead there for a purpose. No wonder this movie has the young girls’ fascination: the male lead was fashioned after Jesus.
This immediately propels her to want to tell her own story. Should she reveal her disgusting past and risk losing the respect she has with the congregation by sharing everything to keep these young girls from the same horrors without the Lord?
Convicted (Book 1 of the Paradigm Shift Trilogy)
This book was previously published as The Conversion (Book 1 of the Harvesting Machine Trilogy).
Convicted (Book 1 of the Paradigm Shift Trilogy) begins the story by explaining how after being beaten and emotionally bruised by two ex-husbands, Hope Anderson seeks the comfort she once felt within her family church. Upon her first visit back, she sits on the last row to secure her anonymity. Desperate to find comfort and acceptance, Hope felt judgmental eyes instead. Regularly plagued by fear and paranoia, Hope seeks counsel and finds it through a female evangelist on television. The woman's depiction of love and her explanation of a spiritual journey prompts Hope to ask God for the same. He grants her request. Hope is taught how to pray effectively because of her journey with the Holy Spirit. With intercession, Hope is also granted supernatural gifts of spiritual sight and hearing. She faces demons bravely through her faith in the Holy Spirit to help others.
When Hope's journey is over, she does not turn her back on her church or on her colleagues at work. Convicted, she boldly stands and fights for them using her superpowers. It is through this process that Hope learns to love herself and other people and to forgive.
Living happily with her Lord, Hope is faced once again with what caused her immense fear and paranoia. The fight for her life begins, and it is the worst physical and spiritual battle imaginable!
Convinced (Book 2 of the Paradigm Shift Trilogy)
Convinced was previously published as The Chosen (Book 2 of the Harvesting Machine Trilogy).
A prophecy is starting over. Heaven holds a meeting so the last piece of a puzzle can be found. Jesus chooses Gina Grimes, a strong willed, self-serving and unchurched young woman to complete the team.
For Jesus’ plan to work, the Holy Spirit has to first convince Gina her lifestyle isn’t great. He uses Caylee Sellers, Gina’s happy-go-lucky co-worker, to convince her there is a better life with the Lord. Once Gina submits to Jesus, he sends her a guardian angel. But when the angel called Ox arrives on the scene to guard her, he sees that Satan is already focused on Gina and is determined to ruin or kill Jesus’ new convert before the Lord’s seed of faith can take root.
A battle of wills begins and in the process Gina gets physically hurt. To counter act the situation Satan caused, the Holy Spirit uses another strategy on Gina to produce an effect that will shape her outlook and give her a supernatural way to contour nearly every action and thought.
While Gina physically heals, the Holy Spirit makes sure Gina finds new friends who are also equipped with guardian angels and various powers. Jesus’ plan starts working. Gina gains strength with the Holy Spirit’s guidance, Ox’s presence and her new friend’s assurance. Will Gina find what she craves before all hell breaks out.
