Our first guest is Heather Carter author of Soul-Selfie: #NoFilter.She writes about what she calls the “plagues of the soul” and reveals her own battles with fear, control, ego anxiety, doubt, resentment, comparison, and jealousy. A battle with leukemia a few years ago got her started on writing, and she walked through that journey with honesty about her own struggles and emotions, at the same time she battled the disease. As she held on to hope and walked toward healing from the physical disease, she discovered there was more that needed healing. “Once the leukemia stopped dominating my life, I became acutely aware of a chronic soul-sickness that I am pretty sure is incurable,” Heather says. “God can improve me, forgive me, help me grow past some things, but I will remain broken, and I am not the only one.”

As she continued to write what she calls “soul-selfies,” she found her raw and honest writing resonated with others, because everyone battles these same plagues, even without a cancer diagnosis. But far too often, she says, people feel alone in their struggles, when in fact, we all share the same human and painful emotions. Today she shares her experience, strength, and hope with everyone God puts in her path, as He uses her to help others.

After 20 years serving alongside her husband in the pastorate, she works today as a real estate professional.  Heather and her husband have three grown children.  Soul-Selfie: #NoFilter is the second book in her Soul-Selfies series. For more information about Heather, and to connect with her for speaking engagements, visit https://www.heathercarterwrites.com, where you will also find new Soul-Selfie posts.

Doug HersheyOur last guest is Doug Hershey best-selling author, seasoned tour leader, explorer of biblical lands, and the founder of Ezra Adventures, an Israel-focused travel and education company, takes his readers on a tour of Jerusalem like none other. A gifted storyteller, he shares how the ancient biblical prophecies of Zechariah, foretold in the Bible and in newly-discovered Dead Sea Scrolls, are coming to life in modern-day Jerusalem.   About Jerusalem Rising: The City of Peace Reawakens:

In Jerusalem Rising, Hershey, discusses his new book which features amazing then-and-now photographs of the ancient City of Peace, offering a stunning visual narrative that chronicles the city’s miraculous transformation from desolation to abundance, as foretold in the Bible centuries ago. His new online video course, “10 Prophecies Fulfilled in Our Lifetime” connects bible prophecy with its fulfillments in Israel today.
“I’m very excited that Jerusalem Rising brings some photography and research to the table that has never been done before,” says Hershey. “To be able to capture the restoration of Jerusalem through then-and-now photography that points back and verifies Zechariah’s words was an honor and a joy to work on and present in this project!”
From the famed walls and gates of the Old City to the new city rising around it, Hershey provides compelling evidence about the truth of Bible prophecy, while illuminating Jerusalem’s rich history. For more information go to https://doughershey.co/about
