ProLifeCorner- Annarae- The excitement and anticipation of Christmas is in the air. As we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, let us try to remember that it is His birthday that we are celebrating. Part of that tradition is the exchange or giving of gifts to loved ones. I would like to suggest a book for your family and friends. This book was written by a dear friend of ours, John Shippert. John was a public school teacher for over 30 years. He is the father of 10 children. John would often make up exciting stories to tell his children at bedtime. Recently he adapted one of these many stories into an exciting fantasy adventure entitled “Forest of the Witches”. This book is loaded with moral values which we can all benefit from today.
There is still time to order this book in Kindle form for $2.99 and it can also be ordered in paperback form for only $8.99.
This book is loaded with adventure and excitement and has received high praise from early teens on up to those of us in our 70s.
“Forest Of The Witches” is A Fantasy Adventure 30 Years in the Making
Updated information in this review.
ProLifeCorner- Annarae – It might seem strange to see a review of a book titled “Forest of the Witches” presented on the Pro Life Corner, but this is a delightful and adventurous book that will appeal to early teens and adults alike. With witches in the title you might think it’s another typical adventure geared toward kids and having an occult theme. Not So!!
The tale begins with 11 year old Patrick at the bedside of his dying grandfather. Grandfather gives Patrick a bag of magic jelly beans so he will be able to go through the Forest of the Witches to the Valley of the Leprechauns in search of the pot of gold. When Grandfather passes away, young Patrick embarks on the most dangerous adventure of his young life. On his journey, he encounters many evil characters, wild animals, and many more tribulations. But Patrick doesn’t travel alone. Along the way he discovers he has his own guardian angel to assist him. Together they battle many evil forces and the magic jelly beans come in handy in surprising ways. Each page seems to get more exciting and sometimes scary, but it’s hard to put the book down. You just want to find out what happens next. Continue reading →

ProLifeCorner.com – 2-27-2014 – by Chris – I recently read “Secret Rockford” and I must tell you, in spite of reading about some of the horrible events that have occurred in Rockford, I did enjoy the book. One of the chapters was entitled “Of Tragedy and Triumph” and this could easily have been the title of the book. There are brief stories of great sadness along with those of great success and triumph. The horrific murder of children and the mob influence in the city were disturbing to read; however, the piece about a one- on- one basketball game and a young person’s rise from poverty is heartwarming. The book is well worth the time it takes to read and you just might learn a lot about the Forest City that you never knew. Continue reading →
ProLifeCorner – Virginia Beach, VA- 10-18-2013 – By Frank Munda- The Five Laws Of Liberty was the topic of discussion on a interview of the author, Scott Hyland, on CBN(Christian Broadcasting Network). It is rare to be able to recommend a book to all Christians, no matter what their denomination. I will even take it a step further: If you are an American patriot and don’t even consider yourself a Christian, this book is for you as well. Continue reading →
ProLifeCorner.com – 7-10-2013 – “Religious Freedom Isn’t Free; and Neither is ObamaCare” is the title of a book recently published on Amazon’s books for the Kindle. The authors, Chris and Frank Munda, have spent the past 30 years as advocates for the preborn, infirm, and elderly. In 2012 tens of thousands of Christian patriots gathered all across America to pray and stand up for religious freedom. Pastors of all denominations, educators, lawyers, politicians, and many other citizens spoke out against and warned others of the dangers of socialized medicine, “ObamaCare”. Continue reading →
ProLifeCorner.com – 3-5-2013 – by AnnaRae – When we think of the most evil and harmful people of the 20th century, I’m sure most of us would first think of Hitler or Marx. An average appearing woman would more than likely not enter our minds. And yet, Margaret Sanger rates up with Hitler and Marx for pure evil. The woman who started Planned Parenthood has to claim responsibility for the over 56 million dead babies aborted , just in America alone. Continue reading →
ProLifeCorner.com- 2/26/2013- By Frank Munda- Memoirs of the Communist Infiltration Into the Church by Marie Carré I just completed reading for the second time a short little book with an even a shorter title, “AA 1025”. The first time I read this book was well over 20 years ago and although I found the book disturbing, it somehow did not register all that clearly with me at that time. We all know how smart we can be when we look back with that so-called 20/20 hindsight. With hindsight, all of a sudden things are very, very clear. We know that Holy Mother Church has been under attack by many groups, organizations and the media in general, especially for the last 50 years. Some may feel that these attacks are random, others might feel that because the Church has the courage to speak out against sin in the world, that is why the Church is under attack.
