Encouraging and Increasing Faith

In Coffee with God, Melisa A. Smith skillfully combines devotional writings and letters that will encourage and teach readers important lessons that can be applied to anyone's life. This book helps readers learn that they must rely on God and allow Him to help them in the various storms and trials of life. Smith believes that spending time with God on a daily basis can be as simple as a person sharing their coffee time with Him.

Through the pages of Coffee with God, Smith addresses issues such as fear, weariness, relationships, and purposeful living. This book, which is the first in a series of writings, encourages individuals to begin an intimate relationship with God.

In 'Cause God Promised, Melisa Smith presents a wonderfully written short story about trials and victories that people oftentimes experience while waiting on the fulfillment of God's promises. Smith's story follows the life of Alex Johnson from childhood to adulthood, a failed marriage to a cocaine addict and the near loss of her daughter, to finally learning to trust God and then receiving her promise. Throughout this journey, Alex learns that what God says He will do will certainly come to pass in time.

'Cause God Promised will build faith and determination in readers who are striving to press towards the manifestation of God’s promise for their lives.
