Restoring Health: body, mind and spirit

New book coming out soon


Dear friends,
Our latest book ‘God’s Firestarters: preparing our families for coming revivals’ is currently gone for formatting and layout with our good friend Bill Glasgow, before going to Dallas Texas with Larry Luby of His Publishing Group. It should be out for Christmas
I encourage you to not only read this God’s Firestarter book, but even other books written by the same authors. Just one example, “Celebrating the differences” as enrichment instead of taking them as issues. I bless you, Ed+ and Janice, as you use your gift of writing.
–The Most Rev Kolini Musaba Emmanuel (Rtd. Archbishop of Rwanda).

When the sun’s light hits a gem at just the right angle, it catches our eye, it sparkles, it draws us closer. Ed and Janice Hird have caught these gems of the Faith in just the right perspective, heartfelt relationships with spouse and God, for them to shine for us and fill our hearts with hope and hopefully, close enough for fire.
–The Right Rev’d Carl Buffington, New Covenant Church, Winter Spring, Florida, Anglican Mission International

  1. It’s great to hear of this forthcoming book, Ed! Congratulations on another manuscript being sent to the publishers! I have published four novels on the Seven Churches (Pergamum, Sardis, Thyatira, and Philadelphia.) The Next one is on Laodicea, appearing at Thanksgiving. In January 2022, the sixth comes out, on Smyrna, and for Easter, the last book on Ephesus. I was privileged to visit Ephesus 25 times when Cathie and I lived in Turkey, 2000-2011. All the books together form one complete story of Early Christianity, a saga I call “Heartbeats of Courage.” These are available on Amazon for anyone who wishes to read them, or I can get them for a lesser amount, with postage for free. Warmest regards from Cathie and me! I love the frequent entries on the website.
