This book sounds incredible! This author is amazing, she has a nice touch in writing books. She wrote two children books that kids and families loved. Then, she writes this novel of events that happen around the world. I think this book is going to be inspiring to teens and adults!

This book seems like such a special and inspirational read for children. Continued blessings to you and your work Shirley.

I love your idea and concept. I have ordered your book: "Planet of Success" for my grand-daughters. Please read my article titled "Loving the Skin I'm In". We don't have enough of these type books/writings out for our young people, especially! I too will be publishing a series of short stories for children sometime next year, called "The Adventures of Herman and Rachael". You are quite an inspiration. Much success to you.

Inspirational books that teach children about acceptance and unconditional friendship and love are where it's at.
We need more books in this genre and I for one am very pleased to purchase Planet of Success! I am ordering a copy for my granddaughters, Candace and Alyse based on the artwork and theme. My Candace is eight years old and was born with a huge black hairy birthmark that covered a third of her precious face.
Your book is along the same theme of my book My Name is Not Monkey Girl which is also about a child who looks different. I pray that your book sells millions and that our young children will read its content over and over again.

Hi Shirley. I am interested in your thought that a child shouldn't judge by a person's appearance. You might want to see my similar idea in my short story, Be thankful for friends of all kinds. Your book looks like the type I may want to end up in the hands of my grandchildren...Jerry

Effort vs Accurate (Short Story) - 7/28/2015 5:56:20 AM
Accurate? Besides the many grammar errors in the four paragraphs posted and the obvious misspellings of “dictionay” and “oder”, you do have a good point about being accurate versus making a token effort. However, you may want to put more “Effort” into editing before posting.
There was a great chance of good conversation between the customer (you) and the waiter (rather than narrating), which I believe would have more effect on one reading it.
Possibly, I’m too meticulous; but when I read something, I don’t like seeing errors as it takes away from the meaning of what’s written.

Good for Timmy!
I was a bully until ninth grade. Three searingly painful wacks from the vice principal's one-inch thick paddle took the bully right out of me. It's a pity they don't do that anymore. That was one of the best things that ever happened to me.

What Parents Just Don't Know (Short Story) - 10/3/2012 6:47:17 PM
Parents occasionally are just on a need to know bases, about their children.Basically the need to know that their children are feed, have shelter, and are safe.Actually parents should know their children desires,likes,dislikes, friends, hobbies and most importantly, where they hang-out...Realistically Just Being There for Them Always...

Timmy in Middle School (Short Story) - 9/4/2008 8:27:39 AM
The explanation of the parable (allegory) of Abraham, Sarah and Agar. Gal 4:21-24.
Abraham is the Bible sent into the world; Sarah and Agar are by revelation of the Holy Spirit not people but figuratively are the two Sealed Covenants in the Bible.
The heavenly revelation and explanation of Sarah and Agar as Covenants in the Bible by the Spirit God overrides the carnal understanding of the Bible and is contrary to the earthly carnal veiling explanation of them in the handwritten Bible as being the visible historic people. This is revealed and is explained in Gal 4:21-24 and in 2 Corinth 3:5-6 by the Spirit of God.
Which of the two covenants are you born of? Gal. 4:19-31.
Are you born of the Holy Spirit explained Bible Covenant called Sarah or the human knowledge explained Bible Covenant called Agar?
Are you born of the Bible Covenant called Sarah that bears Holy Spirit children for God/Abraham or a Bible Covenant called Agar, the “Egyptian” that bears carnal children for God/ Abraham? Gal 3.
They are not the children born of the carnally explained entire old handwritten Bible (covenant Agar), the Bible handwritten in letter to this day of 2008, presented in human knowledge; who are the true children to Abraham/God but the true children of Abraham/God are those who are born of the Holy Spirit explained New Bible (Covenant) called Sarah. The heirs of God/Abraham are those born of the New Bible called Sarah having been enabled by the Holy Spirit to READ, EXPLAIN and TEACH the Bible in the inspired wisdom and knowledge of God but not those who are born in the ordinary way of explaining the Bible in human carnal knowledge.2 Corinth 3:13-15, 1 Corinth 2, Gal 3, Gal 4:1-14 Rom 8
Are you born of the old CARNALLY taught handwritten Bible Covenant/ ordinances, written in black and white from the Book Genesis to the Book of Revelation, called the letter OR are you born of the New Covenant Bible ordinances taught by God (Spirit of God)? 2 Corinth 3:5-6
God changes the carnally explained old handwritten Bible ordinances to be New in Bible and in you, when He explains the very old handwritten ordinances in His wisdom and knowledge hence revealing and making a new Covenant with you. He makes the Old ordinances explained carnally to become new ordinances by explaining them in His wisdom and knowledge in you. By doing this in you, God abolishes the carnally explained old Bible ordinances in you and not from the Bible. This is ONLY in those who have been revealed and receive the new Bible explanation of the Holy Spirit but He does not abolish the old ordinances out of the Bible.
The Spirit of God if in you teaches and explains the handwritten Bible, precept by precept from the Book of Genesis to the Book of Revelation in a new way in His wisdom and knowledge which erases or crucifies the old carnally explained ordinances of the old Bible (Son of Man) and resurrects them to become resurrected New Bible Ordinances (Christ, the Son of God) taught by the Holy Spirit. Col 2. Therefore it is said in the scriptures He reveals a New Covenant in your soul that makes you His son. Heb 7:12-28, Ps 25:9-14, Col 2, 1 Corinth 15, Heb 1:1-2.
Invitation of your Soul to eternal life by the Holy Spirit explained ENGRAFTED New Covenant Bible. 1 Corinth 15
It means the original dead handwritten Bible word (Dead Christ/OLD Covenant); the letter, the CARNALLY EXPLAINED LAW that kills souls has by the power of the resurrection conquered death in your soul and is resurrected with your soul into eternal life through the translation power the Holy Spirit. Your soul is translated or resurrected from the carnally explained original handwritten Covenant Bible Word to the engrafted New Covenant Bible WORD taught by the Holy Spirit. Your soul passes from death of the original handwritten Bible in letter that kills souls to the ENGRAFTED NEW COVENANT BIBLE which gives eternal life to your soul whilst you are still in your physical body..2 Cor. 3:5-6; James 1:18-21. KJV Bible.
Who are the children of Flesh or the carnal ISMEAL(S) that read the Bible and misinterpret it in human knowledge and wisdom?
They are the ones who read the Bible in the carnal understanding without the help of the Holy Spirit in them to enable them interpret the scriptures in the wisdom and knowledge of God that reveal the invisible things of heaven. Their role and limit is to explain the Bible using visible earthly things by the old covenant to this day 2008 that veil the invisible things of heaven.
It is now time to cast out the Bondwoman (Agar, the old handwritten Bible Covenant) and her carnal son that read and interpret the Bible carnally. Cast out the carnal son of Abraham and Agar. Cast out of authority the carnal son so that the children born by the Holy Spirit New covenant (Sarah) takeover the Kingdom. Little Folk take over the Kingdom it is the time to take over the kingdom of God from the carnal preacher and interpreter of the Bible scriptures. The Word of God says do not relax until you have accomplished this!
Don't you have the Holy Spirit “eyes” to see (understand) that the CARNAL ISMEAL(S) have been blessed by God and have kingdoms as result of preaching the Bible carnally? It is time now to cast out the bondwoman (the Old handwritten Bible Word Covenant) that bears the children of flesh (carnal) in understanding the Bible so that Sarah, the free Woman (the New Bible Covenant ministered by the Holy Spirit can bear Children who understand the Bible by the leading (interpretation) or enabling of the Holy Spirit. Gal 4:21-31, 2 Corinth 3 :5-6. The children of Abraham of flesh have been blessed with material things but they are not blessed with Eternal life. They are moving natural bodies but with dead souls! They read the handwritten Bible, the letter that kills souls. Only the children born to Abraham through Sarah, the Holy Spirit explained New Bible covenant of eternal life are the heirs of God/Abraham.

Planet Of Success (Short Story) - 7/30/2008 9:09:10 PM
Guess what? Visitors from another planet landed on Planet Of Success .They are some peculiar looking creatures, but they have a cotton candy smell to them. You know how everything is changing,birds don't sing much anymore,bugs are not crawling on the ground much, Wow everything we know about is slowly disappearing and new things are steadily appearing. Be careful! What you think is It's Not.

Pimples hide best when hidden by smiles and dimples. It's all the ultimate creation as the pimple helps contain things needing purged, and the smile is the vehicle for the spirit seeking surge.

I loved this so much. thank you, lindalw
