Forgotten Hope (Paperback)
To those who find life desperate or just routine. To those who struggle to get out of bed or just can’t seem to get to sleep. To those who believe there is no more and to those who ask, “Is this it?” This book leads you to a Forgotten Hope!
Take a walk with the author as he searches through time for those who sought and fought to retain and revive this Hope. On this walk, the author details the “Offer of Hope” for what it is and what it is not. As you come to understand The Offer, you will take solace in passages like, “I offer you Peace that your heart will not be troubled and that you will not be afraid.” As you walk, the author will expose the truth of a culture that would steal this Hope from you and counter it with Truth from The Offer, “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the former things have passed away.” The author explains the warfare between those of the physical world and those of the spiritual world.
On your walk, the author will introduce you to Robert Boyle, David M’Clure, Matthew Henry, Vance Havner, Lady Julian, St. Bernard of Clairvaux and A.W. Tozer, who not only believed in and embraced the Offer of Hope but also understood that, before you can accept The Offer, you must believe in the One who makes it. With the assistance of these great men and women, the author opens the “Instruction Manual” of this Forgotten Hope and teaches you to “avoid the fire” that would destroy your opportunity to embrace it. From the pages of the Manual, the author builds the foundation of Hope, “Hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.” Because “There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear, because fear involves punishment. The one who fears has not been perfected in love. We love because He first loved us.”
The Offer of Hope has been made. Christ “knocks” and says, “Here I am…”

Forged Hope (Paperback)
Like Forgotten Hope, this book is not written for the wolf or the goat. Unlike Forgotten Hope it is not written for the lost either. Having restored the definition and The Offer of Hope in Forgotten Hope, we must, as we always do, look at its application in our lives. This is where Forged Hope comes in. For the lost sheep now returned to the Shepherd, we will look to the Manual (Bible) for Instruction on how to grow good fruit, how to go from lukewarm to a rolling boil.
Today, it is commonly believed that to choose Christ is a ticket to prosperity, protection, and peace “in” this world. But what is the Truth? The Truth Is… Christ was killed for refusing to deny He was the Son of God. Immediately following His execution, following in “the Way” of Christ, was outlawed. All who even associated with those who did would be arrested, thrown in prison, and even killed.
What does this mean? While in the Shepherd’s care, the Adversary will attack, try to lead us away, and get us to doubt the Shepherd. If we continue to “Listen” to what the Spirit teaches and reject the Adversary’s lies, we will grow stronger, we will be “tempered.” By this “fire” we will be “Forged” into a proper tree, a boiling spring, a servant of the Great Shepherd.
It is through this “Consuming Fire” that all of the Adversary is destroyed. It is by this fire that God turns all that the Adversary throws at us “in” this world to prosperity, protection, and Peace “of” God’s world. It is through these Tempering Fires that we are purified, strengthened, and re-made in God’s Image – an image of heart and soul as one entire being. It is by these fires that His Armor is Forged in us. It is this fire that takes a Forgotten Hope, restored, and turns it into a Forged Hope. It is only in this state that we can go on to be good stewards in a committed Fidelity to Hope.
Bethany Rae describes Captivated as follows,
"My first album, Captivated, is a collection of my conversations with God as I faced new trials, new adversaries, and new blessings.
In writing “Captivated,” the title track of my debut album, God gave me a deeper understanding of the depth and passion of His love for me. He also made it clear that this message was not just for me but for His entire Church. My music, Worship through Song, reflects this mission to “draw God’s children to His heart in worship.”
