Today it’s my pleasure to introduce you to Pearl Nshiam-Kumi. Pearl is a “new to me” author, and it was enjoyable getting to know her through this interview.

How much time a day do you spend in researching your topic?

I don’t have a set amount of research time. I research as I go along, because I write about topics I already know something about. My basic resource is the Bible, and since I read it often, I make note of things I come across that might be helpful later.

What is your favorite time of day to write, and why?

I write whenever I’m able to, but I do better if I get to it first thing in the morning.

Do your books reflect your spiritual journey?

Yes, yes! I love sharing the salvation message; it is the start of life. Jesus in His prayer for his disciples (see John 17), prayed: “This is the way to have eternal life—to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth” (John 17:3 NLT). Of course in conjunction with salvation is Christian living. When one comes to faith in Jesus, one is born into the Church, the family of God, and needs to grow in faith, and live for God, and share the gospel with others. That’s mostly what I write about.

Why did you write this book?

I wrote this book, FROM THE GARDEN INTO ETERNITY, YOUR CHOICE, because I felt the need for readers to understand how it all started, and how it’s all going to end. Some have very little to no idea they will have to stand before God someday. Others erroneously believe that a loving God will not send people to hell, and honestly, that scares me for them. They need to know why God won’t just let them into heaven. Each person has to make the choice, and then ask God for salvation through Jesus; that is the only way. God has no grand or great grandchildren; God is not going to call by families, churches, or any kind of group. It’s going to be on a one-on-one basis. The bottom line is, man sinned against God, the sin caused a separation between God and man, Jesus died to pay for the penalty, and thereby restoring the relationship with God. Everybody needs to understand that, so they can make an informed decision.

What is your favorite cookie?

I love oatmeal/raisin cookies; a girlfriend, Mimi used to make them for me. I try not to eat them too often though, since we all know what those could do to your hips.

Pearl, thank you so much for sharing with us today. It was truly a joy! Now, while my readers learn about your book, I’m going to go make some oatmeal raisin cookies. Ha ha ha.

 

About the Book

Book: From the Garden into Eternity

Author: Pearl Nsiah-From the Garden to Eternity - straight view

Genre: Religious-Christian Evangelism

Release Date: June 25, 2018

From the Garden into Eternity tells of mankind’s fall from God’s grace beginning in the Garden of Eden, all the way through to one’s individual choice: Will eternity be spent in Heaven with God or Hell with Satan?

As a result of sin, mankind suffered a loss of close fellowship with God – but do not fret!  The relationship can be restored in this life right into the next!  God does not, however, force anyone into a relationship with Him.  We are free to choose Him or the alternative: Satan.

This book, fully-supported by Bible verses, helps you determine where you are in this journey called “life”.  Rest assured that God loves you and longs to give you eternal life in Heaven with Him, but you must first repent and place your faith in Jesus Christ.  If you have never taken that step, please don’t wait any longer.  The alternative eternity – which will be by default – will be dreadful.

Call on Jesus today!

Start the relationship that guarantees your eternity in Heaven with God!

More from Pearl

I wrote this book: FROM THE GARDEN INTO ETERNITY, because I felt the need to explain step-by-step how we, people created in the image of God lost our relationship with Him, and how that relationship could be restored. Along with the explanation, I also felt the need to stress the urgency of the restoration of that relationship. Why the urgency? It is urgent, because time is running out for all of us, and if one’s relationship isn’t restored in this life, eternity will be awful. Since no one knows how much time they have left in this life, we each need to respond to God’s love now, so we can have the assurance of a blissful eternity in heaven. Each person has to make a personal decision about their eternity.

Have you met Jungu Olobia yet? I’m excited to introduce her to you through this interview I recently did with her.

How much time a day do you spend in researching your topic?

I don’t rush through researching a topic. It may take a few hours, all day or several days. I keep praying and thinking about a topic until I feel a peace about it. As I begin writing, I may change the topic if need be.

What literary pilgrimages have you gone on?

I would say our international travels as a family to many countries around the world have been literary pilgrimages, because I mention them several times in my book. I have learned so much about different cultures and the lovely people of the world.

Traveling to countries like Israel, Turkey, Nigeria, United Arab Emirates, Kenya, Canada, Mexico, Spain, Portugal and many more, changed my life for the better. I value, even more, the freedoms we enjoy in the United States and I’m eternally thankful for the great love of God through His Son, Jesus.

Do your books reflect your spiritual journey?

Yes indeed. I write about my life before Christ and after. I write about my non-Christian upbringing and the way I’m bringing up my children in Christ.

Does writing your book bring healing to you, personally?

Remembering and researching family history took a lot of prayer because some of the material was very disturbing, painful and difficult to write about. Nevertheless, I was able to bring the shock and the trauma to God in prayer, plus, I understand better why, for example, I struggled with insecurity issues for so long. It has also been a great opportunity to pray for my unsaved family members in an even more focused and intent way, and, at the same time extend love, grace and mercy to them. In addition, I’m a better, more mature Christian for writing this book.

Why did you write this book?

I wrote this book to help parents and guardians, in a very practical and biblical way, successfully train and develop godly character in their children, with the help of the Holy Spirit.

Jungu, thank you so much for sharing with my readers. I really appreciated getting to know you better, and I hope they did too.

Readers, please check Jungu’s new book!

About the Book

Book: Considering Others

Author: Jungu Olobia

Genre: RELIGION / Christian Living / Personal Growth

Release Date: March 4, 2019

Good manners and etiquette begin in the home, or wherever a child is taught or mentored. From an early age, children learn how to behave, and as they grow, how to interact in their relationships at school, church, and in their communities. Though etiquette varies between cultures, practicing good manners is a kindness that extends across cultures, because the way we treat one another matters. 

We want to raise and train our children in safe, healthy environments, but the daily encounters of a fallen world make it challenging. Much has been written on good etiquette, but this practical, captivating book points readers to Jesus Christ as the Lord and the Holy Spirit as the Teacher of good manners, clearly illustrating that the Bible is the Life Manual for good behavior that comes from God’s heart. 

From biblical examples to personal examples, reflection verses and practical steps, and prayers and Scriptures to pray over children, Considering Others: Good Manners to Glorify God will help parents, teachers, and mentors shape and develop godly character and good manners in children so they may lead healthy, successful adult lives in their sphere of influence around the world. And there’s plenty of takeaways for adults too!

More from Jungu

As parents and guardians, we want to raise and train our children in safe, healthy environments, but the daily encounters of a fallen world make it very challenging. Much has been written on good etiquette, but how many books point to Jesus Christ as the Lord and the Holy Spirit as the Teacher of good manners? After almost two decades serving and teaching as a Sunday school teacher, about a decade working in an IT position at a College, and with much encouragement from my beloved pastors and family, I wrote Considering Others: Good Manners to Glorify God.  Thank you so much for joining me today! It has been such a privilege and honor to be with you. We all love and care for our children very much, so thank you for allowing me to talk about my book, Considering Others: Good Manners to Glorify God. Writing my first book has been a walk of faith that has been both painful and joyous as I found out a lot more about my family history and how much I needed to pray!  Thank God, however, for His love and gift of His son, our Lord Jesus.

 Here is a question for us: What legacy do we want to leave our children?  Proverbs 13:22 tells us that good people leave an inheritance to their descendants. That scripture speaks to more than a financial or natural inheritance. It also speaks to passing on virtues that build character.
