Review: Six Weeks To Yehidah

Six Weeks To Yehidah

Six Weeks To Yehidah – reviewed by Ron Starbuck – published on Saint Julian Press

Six Weeks to Yehidah, and the story of Annalise of the Verdant Hills, is one of those rare books you will always treasure. As you delve fully into the story, dwell within the story beside Annalise as one of her guardian angles, you will experience a quickening of flesh and spirit, Spiritual Goosebumps. As Annalise discovers the depths of her being, so will you. As Annalise travels through heaven, so will you. As Annalise begins to awaken to the nature of her truest self, the truth of her life, so will you.

Annalise’s story is more than enthralling, it is enlightening, it is your deepest held heart memory awakening to the light of creation itself, wisdom incarnate, words coming alive and giving life. I promise you will not stop reading until the very end. You will want to savor every word, every moment, and every adventure in its deep held wisdom. And you will wish to share the story with others, with your children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren from one generation to the next. Delve deep. Awaken. Be.

“Move over, C.S. Lewis; Melissa Studdard is here! Annalise of the Verdant Hills is one of the most delightful protagonists to skip through the pages of literature since Dorothy landed in Oz. Join Annalise and her two walking, talking wondersheep as they travel to ever more outlandish places and meet outrageous and enlightening folk on their journey to discover interconnectedness in a seemingly disconnected world. Discover with them how just one person can be the start of the change we all strive for. A book for all ages, for all time: wonderful, wacky, and bursting with truth!

Six Weeks to Yehidah, Melissa Studdard’s delightful debut novel, is one of the more metaphysical children’s stories you will ever read. Bridging imaginary worlds of talking sheep, cloud kingdoms, magic labyrinths and spirit guides, “Yehidah” comes to life in a kaleidoscopic array of color, sound and light.

Listeners young and old alike will be transported via the sentient observations of main character Annalise as she experiences the transcendental metamorphosis of spiritual awareness.”

Oprah Winfrey, Faraaz Kazi and Lao Tzu Mentioned In The Huffington Post

Today I read the key article about the influence of our past and gone relationships to our behavior and our aims and goals in the future. Published in the Huffington Post by Jean-Paul Bedard – in my opinion – it makes reading hundreds of books about the subject redundant. The article reveals the center and heart of the problem and how to cope with it: it is us and our attitude towards our story, our past and our relationships. A wonderful article about this subject. Enjoy it!      Hans-Jürgen John

Besides Faraaz Kazi is cited in the article:

Oprah Winfreys citation:

“Forgiveness is giving up the hope that the past could have been any different, it’s accepting the past for what it was, and using this moment and this time to help yourself move forward.” — Oprah Winfrey

A New Author, The First Author From Germany

Manfred-Eichhorn-am-Ulmer-Rathaus

I am proud and happy to announce that a new author from Germany joins Johntext – literature with purpose to help. On Johntext Baden-Württemberg you can already find some photos, books, reviews and links to his biography on Wikipedia, his publishing houses and special events.

Manfred Eichhorn published his crime story number four: “In der Asche schläft die Glut” with the start of this month.
Like the three other crime stories he wrote before it was published by the Silberburg publishing house, Tübingen. His books are available in bookstores as well as on amazon.com or directly from his bookstore in Ulm, Pfauengasse.

Who is the author of more than 40 books, several play scipts which were performed and a lot of contributions to anthologies and school books?

Manfred Eichhorn was born in 1951 in Ulm. When he was not older than 16 years old he wrote his first book, which was not published. The following years he learned the bookstore buisiness. Together with his wife he opened his own bookstore in 1973 in Ulm. For more than 40 years he sold books there. Soon he made the big step from selling books to writing them. At the beginning of the septuagenarian initially books of poetry were published, a novel, children’s books and other stories followed.

Thank you so much!
