Author Cindy Kolbo illustrates Book of Colossians to help readers memorize Scriptures


CANISTOTA, S.D. – Author Cindy Kolbo knows how difficult understanding the Scriptures can be for visual learners. In an effort to help them, Kolbo releases her illustrated new book, “Memory Helper for the Book of Colossians” (published by WestBow Press), to share the messages of the Bible in a creative and innovative way.

The drawings in “Memory Helper for the Book of Colossians” recreate moments from the Book of Colossians from the King James Bible. Each drawing is kept simple so as not to distract readers from the message of the passage and to aid in memorization and understanding.

Kolbo also includes an accompanying explanation of each drawing along with detailed Greek word definitions, originally translated in James Strong’s book “Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible.” With practice and memorization, readers will be able to better comprehend the Scripture and its many meanings.

“This book may appeal to those who would like a tool for their own study or for those who are teaching,” Kolbo writes. “My hope would be that this book would aid in understanding the Scripture and loving it.”

'Dutch Treat' to follow Sullivan heroine's exhilarating adventures in thriller-filled debut

HORTONVILLE, Wis. – Author Patricia Murphy makes debut into the world of mystery fiction with a thrilling treat. She starts off with the first book of her Treat series, "Dutch Treat"(published by Xlibris), a thriller-packed adventure following the heroine, Charlie Sullivan, her mysterious lakeside inheritance and her loyal friends in a sleepy Wisconsin town.

Charlotte "Charlie" Sullivan is from Milwaukee, divorced and has just lost her teaching position. When she thinks things cannot get any worse, her Uncle Milt dies. He leaves her a cabin/resort called Dutch Treat: complete with bills and leaky boats. Charlie is always living paycheck-to-paycheck. So to make ends meet, she works part-time in a grocery store. Money is not Charlie's only problem. She discovers a family secret as she tries unraveling the mystery that surrounds her uncle's strange death. Her good friend, Oneida Native Conchata Ashwood–Nowak, takes Charlie under her wing and into her house after Charlie is involved in an accident; but Charlie will not sit idly and let the bad guys get away. As she gets closer to discovering who Uncle Milt really was, Charlie finds herself in danger. As always, Charlie's friends are there to help pick up the pieces.

Faced with the unexpected consequences that placed her and her friends in a deadly situation, Charlie must take the lead and put an end to the mystery that plagues her already distraught life. The conclusion is a prodigious display of wit and contemporary grace, showcasing Murphy's uncanny style as a promising literary debutant. With this, she promises an equally-riveting sequence with the second book of the series, "Frozen Treat," currently underway.
