Where Can I Go in My Shame?
Finding Your Identity in Christ
Guilt, shame, and embarrassment are universal emotions that are among the most painful of human experiences. These emotions can humble us and help us have patience with ourselves and others who are weak too. We can only overcome shame when we realize that God has allowed our weakness to occur in order to draw us to Him—that we might look to Him and receive His strength. And quite naturally, as we labor to help others, our wounds will heal much quicker. Be free of the shame in your own life as you introspectively examine the experiences of the author as well as the examples of biblical characters who overcame guilt and shame. This book chock full of biblical scriptures has chapter to chapter discussion questions that will engage the reader to be set free and healed from shame in their own lives.
The Serpent Beguiled Eve
Healing the Wounds of Abandonment, Betrayal and Shame
“The Serpent Beguiled Eve by Acacia Slaton manages to hold your attention and forces you to ask yourself tough philosophical questions about love, life, and your own personal relationships. It tells Acacia’s story of her broken marriage and the loss of her husband to homosexuality. She struggles to understand why her life is the way it is, and why her husband has made these painful, hurtful decisions. The book describes more than just her character; it spells out a path to self discovery that every man, woman or child can use to discover the good and bad of their own lives.
So much more than a self help book or even a guiding light, The Serpent Beguiled Eve is a thoughtful and emotional journey towards self-discovery and happiness. Acacia Slaton uses her own personal narrative as a source for profound healing, growth, and reflection which should be admired. Scriptural references are prominent, and the book does focus for the most part on the Judeo-Christian mindset of tackling issues. In this mindset, it takes the traditional Christian approach of viewing homosexuality as wrong. While much of the book was tough to read, you come through it like you do a storm… feeling much better now that it’s gone, but revitalized and refocused now that it’s over.” – Katelyn Hensel
Ishmael Is Gone – Now Where is Isaac?
Letting God and Forgiving the Past
“Ishmael Is Gone – Now Where Is Isaac? is a valuable spiritual and self-help guide, with discussion questions at the end of each chapter to help the reader glean from the experiences of the author while introspectively examining theirs. Acacia’s vulnerability and her willingness to share personal experiences that many may believe are better left unshared (unknowingly entering into a marriage filled with deception and her bouts with mental illness) have earned her respect amongst her readers. It’s time for you to forgive and let go of your past. Your life isn’t over; the best is yet to come! – If you only have “The Faith” to believe in a Savior who can turn your ashes into beauty and your mourning into dancing.
Come along, as Acacia teaches “The Faith” the Lord taught her during the darkest and most incomprehensible times of her life. Her story entwined with scripture, accompanied by supernatural experiences (applicable for the Body of Christ) will propel the believer and unbeliever alike to arise from the ashes of defeat and to forgive and let go of their past hurt and shame.”
Damascus Road: A Journey to the Cross
Overcoming Adversity in Obscurity
“In Damascus Road, Acacia Slaton takes the reader on a dark road that encompasses her journey of faith during the most difficult and heart-wrenching times of her life. This book is filled with divine insight and the supernatural experiences of the author.
Be prepared to have your eyes open and spirit awakened. Obscurity and confusion will no longer be your portion. Receive a personal word that will strengthen your resolve to choose faith, persevere, and never give up. Let light arise in your present obscurity, and your darkness becomes as the noon day, as your only aim becomes to glorify Him amid the dark and incomprehensible events of His providence.
Hardships and trouble are a part of the human experience. You are in one of three areas right now – you’ve just got out of ‘trouble’, or you’re in it right now, or you’re headed into it. Damascus Road will answer deep and meaningful questions in such areas as: What caused this life storm to happen? What does God want me to learn from this difficulty I’m facing? How does God want me to act in this particular situation?
Damascus Road will change the way you view trials and hardships in your life. It will propel the believer to seek Him rather than turn away from Him, trust Him rather than doubt Him, remain faithful rather than become unfaithful, honor Him rather than question His sovereignty, and last but not least, come into spiritual maturity rather than remain in a place of emptiness and disbelief.”
In the Valley of Decision
The Danger of Compromise and Lukewarmness in the Last Days
“In this heart-convincing and compelling book, the reader is invited to ponder the choice between two ideals: to follow after God, or to deny God and face His righteous judgment. As in Acacia’s other writings, this book is chock-full of Scriptures and revelational insights that will leave readers chewing on and attempting to digest its depth, time and time again. No one wants to be in a compromising and indecisive state. But with the low morale of our nation, one can easily become desensitized and numb to the things of God. In The Valley of Decision, Acacia sounds an alarm to awaken the church and bring it back to its rightful place in Christ. Acacia’s fresh and compelling writing style will appeal to the young and old alike. Be prepared to be challenged and transformed!”
Launch Out Into the Deep!
Fear Not, Only Believe
“Launch Out Into The Deep is a spiritually touching book of devotions written by author Acacia Slaton. Slaton writes from her own life experience and has included inspirational essays, divine poems and quotes from the holy scripture in this book that truly touches the soul. Slaton’s brother, Aaron Slaton, has delicately written the uplifting poems in this book with character and class. Each essay is short and to the point, and each relaying a lesson in life that we can all relate to. The plot is well thought out, each chapter flows nicely to the next and the wording is very easy to comprehend. The issues written about are common ones that affect the world today and she offers her spiritual guidance to those who need it and will embrace it. Slaton explains that life is a constant battle of temptations whether it is money, drugs, crime, sex or even peer pressure. Those temptations feed on themselves and can drag the victim down to destruction. But Slaton is also there to remind us how great the power of God is and how having Faith can turn our lives around.
Acacia Slaton added so many elements into one book. Her words of wisdom, poems and quotes all blended together nicely to create a true masterpiece that is different from anything presently on the market. We all choose our path in life and we need to be careful that we make the right choices and Slaton reiterates this message through and through. This book would be perfect for teens who think they know everything and what is right for them. They will be able to relate to the issues presented and will come away with a powerful lesson in faith and spiritual guidance. Many readers feel very connected and inspired by reading this book as it causes them to question their own relationship with God. Let’s face it, the Bible is very hard to read, let alone to understand each message that God intends for us, but for many this book provides some of those answers written in simple terms that one can easily comprehend.
This book is recommended to anyone who is seeking spiritual guidance, anyone who is searching for spiritual inspiration, or anyone who just loves beautifully written poetry. It has something for everyone, no matter what age you are, you will be certain to bring away the message of hope, forgiveness and peace in your life.” – Rita Vetsch
