Lynne Marie, the Spiritual Surgeon has completed a 5-Volume Series entitled: "Pressing Towards the Mark: How to Develop an Intimate Relationship With God". Each series can be purchased individually at the price of $12.00 each in an e-book format until the manuscripts are ready for publishing.
This series was written for God’s children so that they are able to and equipped with the knowledge of how to conquer territory that has not yet been discovered on the inside of them. Like a garden outside of a home, weeds can form to choke or prevent the seed that was planted from growing, developing and fulfilling its purpose. It is the same for God's children. The parable of the wheat and the tares (Matthew 13:24-30) explains the same process for the children who God created. God planted good seed in us. Yet the enemy has come to kill, steal and destroy that seed (what you were created to be, what you were created to do, and what He freely gave you to possess (John 10:10).
The series provides information and instructions on how to be a finisher to the call that God has ordained and ordered for your life. This 5-volume series is now in the process of being published and each volume will be printed and sold individually. For all you mature Christians who desire to develop a closer and a more intimate relationship with God, this is a valuable and must-read series. Can you say that you actually do have an intimate relationship with God? Here is a sneak preview of the series:
Volume I "The Preparation"
provides background information that will help you gain insight into the series. It provides an overview of what the series, "Pressing Towards the Mark" is about and gives you a strong foundation on what needs to be pressed (straightened out) in your life. There are things about your behaviors, your thoughts and your emotions that often hinders your ability to reach the mark God set for you. This 5-part series will help you see those areas in your life that need "pressing" and Volume I prepares you for the "pressing" process.
Volume II "The Process"
explains those elements and factors that cause distractions in our lives that often prevent us from reaching the mark that God set for us. This volume paints the picture of the path many people are on, where that path leads and what needs to be done in order to make the U-turn that will lead you in the direction that God wants you to go. This volume will focus on looking at the disciples of Jesus in order to understand what to do and expect during the "pressing" process.
Volume III, "The Press"
describes how to overcome spiritual obstacles. It gives more information about the “pressing” process and what you will need to do to protect yourself during the "pressing". In this volume,
the Spiritual Surgeon will share personal experiences which will help you understand why the “pressing” is necessary, her qualifications as a spiritual and psychological educator and a counselor, where the title Spiritual Surgeon came from and what God has called her to do.
Volume IV, "The Provisions"
will detail the provisions that God has already provided for you in order for you to begin and successfully complete the "pressing" process. In this volume, you will be instructed on how to seek God in the area of spiritual warfare, what steps to take to gain victory during the "pressing" process, and information into those areas in your life that need to be "pressed". He has provided all the provisions you need.; He has supplied all your need!
Volume V, "The Promise"
is the last volume of this 5-volume series. This volume will provide you with support and encouragement as you "press towards the mark". The Spiritual Surgeon will again share personal testimonies about the obstacles she faced and the victory God has provided for her since she began the "pressing" process herself. This volume will reveal the promises of God to those who endure the "pressing" process (as well as what you may miss out on if you don’t continue the “pressing” process).

Parenting Skills for the New Millennium: “Getting Back to Basics”
Whether you are a first time parent or not, whether you are young in age or not, the best parenting advice is that you invest your time to understand not only yourself, but your child – from God’s perspective! With this vast-growing technological way of life, God remains the same (and human development remains the same)! This book touches on Christian values and principles and takes you through steps on how to incorporate the basic parenting strategies and techniques that will have positive, long-lasting effects on your children and your relationship with your children. The paperback book costs $25.00 which includes shipping and handling (within the United States).
Always place yourself in an environment where you are able to assess your level of "love". God's motive for everything that He did was founded and based on "love" therefore, your motive for doing anything for your children (as well as others) must be founded and based on "love" as well. This is an easy statement to understand and digest, but it may not be so easy to carry out! Work on LOVE every day and in every situation!
Here are a few basic tips to apply as you develop better strategies in working with your children (and with relating to others):
God created you in His image (Genesis 1:26-27).
God is the only One who knows and understands everything about you and others. Seek Him!
God was the very first parent and Role Model (Genesis 3:8-11)
Everything you do and everything you say should model what God does and what He says.
God speaks to you at all times and in all situations (Psalm 37:5-9; 23-24).
Be more sensitive to His voice. He will lead you, guide you and direct all your steps (Psalm 37:23-24), even in challenging and difficult situations.
God knows everything about you. (Psalm 139)
Therefore, understand and recognize that God also knows everything about your children and everyone you are in contact with. Remember, He loves YOU and OTHERS.
God has provided you with everything you need (Philippians 4:19).
God provided you with an entire manual of instructions.
God's way of doing things is different than the way you want to do things (Isaiah 55:8-9).
You must trust God and you must submit to God (His Word, His Ways and His Will).
God wants you to be like Him – die to your way of seeing and doing things (Gal. 5:16-17).
Take off those behaviors and take the time to identify those characteristics that cause you to fall short of doing things the way God wants you to do things.
(1) trust yourself and place yourself in God’s hands.
(2) allow God to show you things that you need to know about yourself. YOU and your children are important to Him.
Pray and Meditate on:
Picture yourself submitting to God - -
you are the clay in His Mighty hands
(Isaiah 64:6, 8-9).
