It was January 9, 1997. Outside of her home in Monroe, Michigan, it was cold, windy and snowing.

It was her good friend Honey.

“Joy, did you hear what happened?” “No. What?” she answered.

“Angel Gabriel – A True Story” Released in E-Book on Monday

Angel Gabriel, a true story by author Joy LaPlanteIt was the beginning of the New Year, 1997. Outside of her home in Monroe, Michigan, it was cold, windy and snowing. Inside, Joy LaPlante was counting her blessings for a warm house and thinking how glad she was that she didn’t have to go outside.  Joy was startled by the sound of my phone ringing. It was her good friend Honey.

 “Joy, did you hear what happened?” “No. What?” she answered.

“I turned on my police scanner,” Honey continued, her voice serious. “Joy, there has been a plane crash!”

Joy felt her heart sink as Honey continued.  “They’re saying it’s in a field in Ida.”

They listened to what was being said on the scanner and could hear a fireman’s voice quivering as he spoke.  “We don’t know what kind of plane this is, but it looks like a disaster.”

The fireman spoke again, “Call in Petersburg, Deerfield and Monroe. Put everybody else on standby, we’re going to need help. We need to find out what type of plane this was, and how many were on.”

Two weeks later on the night of January 23, Joy felt the presence of someone standing over her, watching her.  She was afraid to open her eyes for fear of what she would see.  Joy just knew if she opened her eyes there would be someone standing there looking at her.  She laid there thinking, maybe it was the spirit of her grandmother or grandfather, but somehow she knew it wasn’t.  She started saying The Lord’s Prayer and then started praying that whatever was there would go away.

However, just then, with her eyes closed, Joy saw the most beautiful face she had ever seen. His eyes were as blue as the sky on a day full of sunshine with no clouds.  The blue part of his eyes had purple running through it and gold flecks that sparkled.  At first, she just stared at his eyes in total awe.

Then she realized her eyes were open, and the feeling of love was overwhelming.  So overwhelming in fact, that Joy thought her chest and heart were going to explode.  She was no longer scared.  She looked at him and said “Hello.”

All Star Press presents “Quiet Spaces: Hearing God’s Voice in a Noisy World”

Quiet Spaces by James HaleThere are two types of callings: the loud, drama-filled, unmistakable directions that make the good Bible stories, and the quieter, more subtle, personal nudges meant for one person. These latter ones are not intended for public viewing. They are soft, personal, one-to-one messages from God to someone for whom He has a purpose. Maybe for you. 

All Star Press is proud to announce the e-book release of James Hale’s “Quiet Spaces: Hearing God’s Voice in a Noisy World.” This powerful book is available for the Kindle and all e-book formats

Of the two types of callings, the quieter ones are the more common, but less understood. These are ones that Jesus and so many others experienced in biblical times…and today. It’s these quieter callings Hale teaches the reader to hear. These are much more subtle than the dramatic ones. These messages cascade gently down from on high, and we do hear them, but we often do not listen to them. 

The great physicist Albert Einstein understood the goodness of God – like most people do – but he also understood the quietness of so many of God’s greatest works and how we often miss his messages or think he’s being elusive or tricky. Einstein observed that “God is subtle, but He is not malicious.” Yes, God is deep and profound, but not devious. Understanding God often baffles and confuses us, but there is no deception, no false path. God places the cookie jar within our sight, and invites us to stretch to reach it, without any traps in the way. He calls to us in quiet, subtle ways, and none of His callings are evil or misguided. There are no tricks, no deceit, no misdirection. 

In “Quiet Spaces” author James Hale teaches you the simple steps to make your work your calling. This influential book includes an easy-to-use 45-day devotional on career choices that everyone can benefit from.
