2018 Christmas Guide Gift - "Mind Trip"

Mind Trip
By Heath Stallcup

These are just some of the dark and twisted ideas that have run through the mind of Heath Stallcup over the years. Join him in a journey to the darker side of short story fiction. A compiled collection of short stories for your reading pleasure. Mobsters intent on ruling the world reveals that sometimes you just can’t go home. The release of a zombie virus on a small rural college town, followed by the ramifications on the parent company and the results of trying to hide your culpability. Sometimes reality isn’t what you think it is. Those noises in the attic may not be rats… Dwelling on the past can be introspective but refusing to let go will skew your reality. When asking Santa for something, remember to be specific. The search for ultimate truth and knowledge opens the creator to dark influences. You know you are about to die. You want nothing more than to protect your loved ones. In a fever induced delirium you lead the threat away from those you care most about.

Understanding Jesus' Connections
By Kelley Benson

Have your eyes ever glazed over when reading the genealogical records in the Bible? For the most part, it’s a list of names you can’t even begin to pronounce, besides being somebody else’s family tree (which usually isn’t all that exciting to look at anyway).

God isn’t wanting to torture us by throwing large chunks of weird names at us for no reason. These names are designed to connect people with a family – Jesus’ family to be specific. But why is that important?

The Yoke
By Kelley Benson

Whether you’re a farm person or not, we’ve probably all heard the verse in Matthew 11:28-30, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” “Take my yoke upon you” has many implications, like learning from Jesus by bringing our passions and desires under control against the immoral and ungodly things of the world.
