Serial Contest

Sky Bridge is aiming to a close. When it ends, we intend to introduce our readers to “The F.L.O.P.” and at least one other serial, when 140 Mile Stretch ends. This is where the contest comes in. The two candidates are Cambridge’s, and Mrs. Withers’ Dress Shop.

Mrs. Withers Dress Shop is a comical look at a family planning a wedding. While it centers around a loose fitting on an engagement ring, you watch as nervous family members slip into comical pieces. Watch as Mrs Withers fights to hold everything together for the big day.

Cambridge’s is nestled in the a cozy little shop in England, where nothing happens at 4:00. Of course that is before it does. Watch as the surprises unfold in a store filled with memories, and promise for the future.

Our question to you is this, Which would you rather read first, the “Cambridge’s”, or “Mrs. Withers’ Dress Shop?” It’s also our Weekly?, and we can’t wait for your answer!

The Book Of Ruth 30 By 30

As you know, for the last few months, we’ve been working on, and sharing part of a commentary on the book of Ruth. It is one of my favorite books of The Bible. It’s so rich in content, and provides the background on David’s family. We have wanted to bring this to you for some time, and are in the process of finishing it up now.

As you know, I attend Church, and am on staff at Point Of Mercy in Nashville, Tennessee. We are blessed to feed a number of people every Sunday, both physically and spiritually. Our Church has literally outgrown our current facility. Rather than going in debt for a new building, we are renovating our existing gymnasium. This is not only being a good financial steward, it will position us to continue growing, as the need arises.

You may wonder what my Church has to do with this book. How many of you remember our Project C post from last year? To start work on our new building, we needed 50 thousand dollars. The problem was, we only had 20,000 in the bank. God laid it on our hearts to step out by faith, and believe that He would supply the rest within thirty days. We called it 30 by 30, and it was part of our Project C that year.

Last year, God tremendously answered, blessing us with even more than we needed. Fast forward one year, and we have some steps that need to be taken to complete the work and move in the new building. Once again, God has laid it on our hearts to step out by faith.

We are believing that within the next thirty days, God will supply the rest of what is needed. The Bible advises us to step out by faith. We are to do whatever humanly possible to accomplish God’s Will, then He will do the rest.

When this happened, The Lord laid it on our hearts to donate all of the profits, minus the actual expenses, of this book entirely to the Church. While it is always my hope, that my readers both buy, and enjoy our books, it’s more so on this one. I wanted to make you aware of this so you could be watching for it. We hope to have, at least, the eBook version ready very soon.

This idea is so fresh that we’re not only still completing the book, we’re scouting the most profitable cost margin we can. I’ll share the final details as soon as we have them, so please check back. This is without a doubt, the most important work we have published to date.

While there is no obligation, I would like to gauge the interest in this book. If you would like an email notification of when it is available, just email pruittwrites@gmail.com with the subject line, “Ruth:30 By 30”. Or, fill out our contact form with “Ruth 30 By 30” in the body of your content. Thank you so much in advance for your generosity, and your commitment to PruittWrites.com.

I love to use my iPad Mini, and iPad first generation before it to draw. It’s relaxing for me, I’m just an amateur, but I thought I’d share some with you. A few are covers and illustrations from our eStories.

Meet Dr. Ed

The following is a fictional, hopefully inspirational, interaction. It occurs in a studio in a corner of my imagination. It is my hope that this light hearted interview will bring a smile to your day.

T.J.: As it is our readers first time talking to you, I’d like to let you just give them some background.

Ed: I will be glad to proceed with the interesting interrogation examining my inner character and characteristics.

T.J.: You’re a doctor aren’t you?

Ed: Yes, I’m a H.O.P.E. and am trained in S.I.L.L.Y. and J.O.Y. Seminars.

T.J.: Those letters mean what?

Ed: You mean other than how much school cost my Parents?

T.J.: You’re fictional, so it didn’t cost them.

Ed: Well, you get what you paid for. H.O.P.E. stands for the study of the History Of Positive Encouragement. S.I.L.L.Y. seminars are Strategically Inspiring those you Love and Lead while denying Yourself. J.O.Y. is paradigm training, it means Jesus Others and You. This is the order that we should follow in our lives.

T.J.: So through laughter you help people.

Ed: I try. There is so much negativity in the world today. So many hurting people, desperate folks, and angry people. Why put down when you can build up? Why not find a way to make people laugh?

T.J.: You got your name for a reason, what was it?

Joshua 22:34
And the children of Reuben and the children of Gad called the altar Ed: for it shall be a witness between us that the Lord is God.

Ed: I was named after an Altar, loosely Ed means Witness. So I witness to those who need a shot of upliftment the arms. After all, flabby arms aren’t flattering, neither are flattened spirits. Sadness seeps into lives and controls them. My job is to edify, enlighten, and engage in laughter!

T.J.: With your looks, I can understand the laughter. Orange and yellow bow tie, silver buzz cut, Einstein mustache, cowboy hat in your hand, and a brown suit with burgundy shoes. You look like a cartoon drawing Ed!

Ed: That’s Dr. Ed to you, and my visual characteristics are your curious construction sir! Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a patient arriving soon.

T.J.: Who are you treating today?

Ed: A songbird that’s forgotten her song.

T.j.: How will you help her, give her sheet music?

Ed: You hopeful boy, you went looking for humor, too bad it alluded you so completely! No, I merely shall remind her of her reason for singing. She is alive, living in a world of God’s creation, with an opportunity to bless others.

T.J.: To bless others?

Ed: Yes, through her song! Give her a reason to be happy, and she’ll remember her song. You see, she’s not really forgotten her song. She has forgotten her reason to sing, remind her of that, and the words will come easy.

T.J.: So if I meet someone sad today, I should tell them they have reason to be happy?

Ed: No! No! No! They won’t need your knowledge, but they may need a kind smile, a hug, or simply a I love you! Lift them up to where they can see the sky, and they’ll know what to do once they’re there. Share your love, not your opinions Timothy!

T.J.: Yes, Dr. Ed, see you next time!
