Has the LORD spoken a promise to your heart...maybe long ago...that is so far beyond anything you can imagine that you do not even dare to dream? Do you need to re-kindle the passion you once had for the LORD? Or, maybe you know someone who needs to be encouraged in their walk of Faith...either to continue it or to start it. Do you long to shower Him with fresh, intimate expressions of your Love and adoration? Are you (or someone you know) sensing an ever-increasing prompting that it is time to step out of the boat onto the waters of Faith in a new way? If your answer is YES to any of the above, then Rise and Shine...and Give God Glory is the perfect gift to give yourself or to others. This is not just another book of poetry. Unique in its genre, Rise and Shine...and Give God Glory is a 52- week prayer-poem devotional journal that invites the reader to accompany the author, Brenda Giles, on a Faith-filled journey as the Holy Spirit leads her from the USA to St. Petersburg, Russia and finally to Jerusalem, Israel where she is now the Founding Director of Hugs for Israel....a Jerusalem based non-profit organization that helps children victims of terror. These are the writings birthed in her heart along the way. Each weekly prayer-poem selection is preceded by Biblically rich introductory prose intended to equip the reader with inspiration and encouragement to meet the spiritual challenges of the coming week from a Power Position of Praise and Worship. To add to the book's uniqueness, Brenda is the first African-American Christian woman to start a non-profit organization in Israel. While there are many poetry devotional books on the market there is really no other prayer-poem devotional quite like this one. It is one written with passion from the intimate perspective of someone who has been actively serving the LORD by Faith full-time in the foreign field since 1997. Whether the need is a deeper intimacy with the LORD; discovering who you are in Christ; stepping out of the boat onto the waters of Faith in a new way; or learning to stand strong in the face of spiritual warfare...there is something for everyone (women and men, young adults, teen-agers and seniors) to draw on and be strengthened by in their own walk of Faith. This is the first volume in the Rise and Shine series. Other volumes to follow. 90% of the proceeds from the sale of the Rise and Shine series will go to fund special projects in Hugs International and Hugs for Israel.

What's a nice African-American Christian woman like you doing in a place like Israel? That is usually the premier question posed by those who meet the author, Brenda Giles, for the first time. To add to this intrigue, as the Founding Director of the Jerusalem based Israeli non-profit organization, Hugs for Israel which helps children victims of terror, she is the first African-American to start such a work. Her life has definitely been a-one-of-a-kind adventure full of testimonies of Faith at work. Growing up on a small farm in the Deep South of the USA, she was an avid reader dreaming of the day when she might spread her wings and experience life beyond the confines of her small town. Graduating from university with a degree in Political Science she had plans to attend law school but the LORD had other plans. She could not have envisioned the dramatic turn her life would take when she surrendered it to the LORD Jesus Christ in 1988. That began an amazing journey of walking...and living...by Faith moving first to New York City, New York then St. Petersburg, Russia and then finally Jerusalem, Israel. Brenda has numerous dramatic testimonies of the LORD's Lavish Love and Faithfulness that she readily shares as an encouragement to others.Review:
I got your book and it's fantastic!!! I can't tell you how your introduction/preface touched me, it reminded me of my journals (a couple of them, I think) that I have done - one day I may venture to read them - if I can find them. So, you can trust that your work will be used in many ways. What a blessing and an instrument for me as well as others - as a reminder to take time out to pen to the Lord. Your book will be used to open hearts, eyes and ears everywhere - challenging us all on an individual and personal level - to have a deeper personal relationship Jesus, Lord and Savior. It's what He is desiring of us all!!! I believe this is a lifetime journey. --B. in New Jersey
Thank you so much for your book. Those of us who deal daily with the world can certainly use such a reminder about the individual importance of prayer and worship --TR in Florida
