The Roland Sisters and the Spirit Program

It’s a sick world down there and it keeps getting darker and more wicked every year! Friends become enemies. Families are ruined. Marriages collapse. Pride, anger, bitterness and jealousy dwell in human hearts like a perpetual disease. People now live in fear, ready to attack out of defense or pounce on the weak and are able to stomp on anyone who gets in their way!

And that's how humans are taught, conditioned to think about only one thing: themselves!

And it certainly takes some time to transform new arrivals into proper citizens of Heaven. Before they can enjoy all that Paradise has to offer, they need to learn how to appreciate relationships again, to forgive, to treat others with respect and be healed from the past.

And that’s where I come in. Alfred Deston. Case Worker #296752. I’m one of the Managers who works in Heaven and I definitely have my work cut out for me!

The Ring Does Not Fit

"If you ever want to be in a relationship, you need to read this book! It's worth your time to sit down and take in all that this story offers because this book contains hidden wisdom about taking nothing for granted, fighting for what you want and accepting God's best!" -Excerpt from the Foreword written by News Producer Travis Rodgers

Alena is stuck in a mundane marriage and longing for something different. New clothes. Bigger bling. Flashy cars. Miraculously and inexplicably, it all happens in a flash and she is finally married to the man of her dreams, but something still seems to be missing. In all her excitement, the one thing she's looking for is the one thing she can't seem to keep.

 

"I couldn't put this book down! It really stresses the importance of appreciating what you have. Sunshine Rodgers is a great author; the story is truly amazing, and I was captivated with each page. I gained great insight into reading this book and it is such an inspiring read, especially for those who doubt God's presence."

- Kathy Dart, Theme Park Attractions Host and Christian Mother

"The grass is rarely greener on the other side. In "The Ring Does Not Fit" Sunshine Rogers takes readers on a fascinating and winding journey of hard lessons and profound revelation. She shows us that what we really need to make our lives complete is often to be found in what we already have. We blind ourselves to the love that surrounds us and our human nature neglects and takes this for granted, as we contemplate how "material objects" could somehow enrich our existence. We (as humans) are born to want more, born to yearn for greater success, but it is the actual nature and form of what this success is that Sunshine explores with such insight and imagination."

- Andy Carpenter, Voices of Freedom

 

"I just finished reading “The Ring Does Not Fit” by Sunshine Rodgers. I absolutely loved this novel!! I enjoyed traveling through the life of Alena. The many changes that occur in her life and how she copes with the challenges on her path to find her faith, are incredible. I could actually see myself in some of the pages of this novel. I recommend taking the time to sit back and take in every word, and put yourself in Alena’s life. The words will surround you and encourage growth in your own faith." 

- Robin Yeck

 

"I loved this book! It draws you in and you do not want to put it down! It is a great read ...I couldn't wait to get to the next page!"  - Heather P.

 

"Your work was found to be an engaging and thought-provoking narrative. The vivid and colorful prose coupled with the relatable themes will captivate readers drawing them into the story and leaving them anxiously awaiting the characters fate. Readers will identify with Alena as many of us have wished for a different life as we felt something was missing." - Austin MaCauley Publishers

 

"Awesome book!! The author definitely shows the magnification of emotions that the character portrays. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone!!"  - Lulu

 

"I finished "The Ring Does Not Fit"....I promise that is the best book i have ever come across...Sunshine also walks the walk...I am amazed how awesome Sunshine is...I am lost for words...Please read this book...It will change your life...and please know...I take notes!"  - Joel B. 

 

"I would recommend this book to any age, but especially any women who feel stuck in a life that she didn't sign up for. When all of us feel, "is this it?" This is a book that makes you realize that your life isn't that bad, it could be worse and just maybe you have many blessings in your life you never realized you had. This book teaches through a great story of love and how God puts people in our lives for our blessings. I loved this book and couldn't stop reading it, I started and didn't put down until the last page, it has many twists and is unpredictable...... I would love to see this as a Hallmark movie, it would be so enjoyable." - Deb's Book Reviews

 

"The Ring Does Not Fit " by Sunshine Rodgers is a book that truly is worth the short time it takes to read it. I recommend this book to everyone that is married, or engaged or wants to be married. It is a story to show that we need to appreciate the things we have and not to take them for granted because they might disappear before we know it. I love the book and the message that it gives. That message is that we need Jesus before things can be right.   I really like the different marriages portrayed in this book." - Debbie C. 

 

"This story reminded me of “It’s a Wonderful Life,” with a twist. A very special guest in the story takes Alena on a journey through several “marriages,” that she thought would be better. The author does a great job of showing Alena what her life may be like and as the journey continues she starts to realize how much she misses her husband." - Deana D.

 

​"What an interesting story! This book kind of reminds me a little bit of the movies 13 Going on 30, and Isn't it Romantic?, with a Christian fiction twist and a story that is all it's own! This story is a quick read that kept me flipping pages super fast because I had to know what would happen next!" - Caitlyn S. ​

 

"I loved the message of this book! I thought it was one that needs to be out there, since it can be easy to get caught up in the romance and forget that the true love story is when we sacrifice and work through things, making a marriage out of what life throws at you. This is an excellent story to pick up!" - Amanda N.

 

"This book provides an excellent look at what can happen without Jesus in a marriage. But it also provides a look at the blessings that can come when we invite Jesus into our marriages as well as our lives. This work of fiction is definitely worth reading." - Patti P. 

 

"I enjoyed the book and definitely agree with the premise upon which it’s written. Sometimes all a marriage needs to succeed and for both parties to be fulfilled is Christ at the center. This novel was entertaining and had a very straightforward message." - Andrea C. 

 

"This is an eye-opening cautionary tale that is pertinent to most people. The subject is marriage, and it is applicable to men and women before or after they are married. Many different aspects of marriage are brought up, and more importantly, the question of what kind of person should one be, and what kind of spouse should one look for, going into marriage. This book is not long, and it is easy to read. It is also a book to make one think, so I recommend it." - Kathy J. 

 

​"I was pleasantly surprised that the book really was good. The concept was fun and unique. Alena had lots of wants and dreams for her life, but when given a glimpse of what might have been she found out that it wasn’t quite what she had imagined. Each “husband” and life was vastly different from her own and I found myself caught up in each story to see what Alena’s life could have been if she had made different choices. The story was enjoyable and was one that has left me thinking since I read it. I look forward to reading more of Rodgers' works." - Donna C.

"Similar to Scrooge, Sunshine Rodgers takes the main character on a journey to understand the power of prayer and faith. Without it, a marriage is not sustainable - love is not enough. I found this to be a great read and I suggest it to my married and single friends." - Poetess April J, host of Your Oral Diktion Academy on Black Love Poetry Series Network

Helpers: A Rescue Mission

 

"This is happening because God answers prayers! We need to have faith that God knows what He is doing. He will use this for our good. You'll see!" Anne assures.

 

"What do you do when your world is spinning all around you?" Kelsey asks.

 

"What I always do. I pray," Anne says.

The Creation Project

Like a therapist, I invite God to sit on the couch in front of me. I flip open my notepad, pen in hand. Now tell me, in your own words, what happened that night. It was a friendship, wasn't it? I hate to open old wounds, but invite me in to all those years ago, before the world was created and all you had were angels who lived in Heaven, and one angel who captured your heart. Describe that moment when everything changed. When was it when Lucifer turned into Satan? And why? Wasn't Heaven good enough? And what did you do when Heaven faced its biggest challenge? Did you trust the wrong source? Were you merely too vulnerable? Maybe if you could turn back time, you wouldn’t have given your angels a choice to rebel. Of course, true love has its risks, one that broke your heart for the very first time.

 

"Creative Interpretation of Creation This book has a lot of personality and passion. The author, Sunshine Rodgers, has created a colorful movie of creation, which really comes to life through the voice artist, N MacCameron. This is an easy listen!" - Bea

 

"I  just finished The Creation Project and although I was taught ABOUT the creation, the entertaining way that Sunshine describes it, kept me captivated throughout the book. Loved every page of it and funny thing, as a child going to catechism class, I’d be thinking about God with hammer and nails and building heaven and paradise. I never thought about the Angels doing most of the work. All in all, I highly recommend this book and I will most definitely read others from this talented author." - Mike L.

After You: A Demon is Always Lurking Nearby

Oh, that’s right, we talk about your love life. We sit with you in class. We know all about that thing you did last night. How do we know? We watch you. We go to those dance clubs with you. We scheme hideous outcomes for you. We know exactly what it is that will get you to our side. We create those wrong friendships you wished you never had. We invite you into those relationships that break your heart. We give you the life you never wanted, but it came at such a sweet price. We promised you the world and you took it like a kid wanting candy. All. Too. Easy. All I can say is, please, don’t let me get in the way of the worst ending of your life. I’m right behind you. I’ll open that door to frustration, nonsense and destruction. Please. After You.

 

"Wow- a book that is written from the perspective of a demon and all of his hellish comrades . . . what an unpleasant and frightening thought. I haven't read a book this artfully written about the spiritual world since Frank Peretti's This Present Darkness. The way the demon worked, how he attached himself to our character, how he responded to help from Heaven, was all so artfully written and really made us a part of the action making the invisible warfare visible. It was truly an intriguing read that kept me on the edge of my seat, and I could not put it down until I finished. Our author truly gives us the view and mission of a demon- to ensure a soul's destiny to hell. I think any Christian should pick this up to remind them of the reality of warfare that is invisible to the eye but is a constant struggle, and one we can claim victory in for our lives and the lives of others." - Katie F

 

 

​"I found it fascinating to read this book. I thought the approach to this topic was the best part of the book. It was interesting to have it from a demon’s point of view. The author does a great job with sentence structure and usage of words to grip the reader in each chapter. Spiritual warfare is not to be taken lightly and this book managed to paint it in light that many readers can follow and understand. It is creative and enjoyable to read. I haven’t fully processed what I have read and will go back to read it again, but I can say this book is one that leaves a reader with much to think about. I recommend this book." - Bree H. "We all know that we are fighting a spiritual battle. This novel helps show us what we cannot see. This book takes a look into how the demons affect our lives. This book is an eye-opener and will make the reader think about this battle that we are engaged in every day. One thing to remember is that prayer is our key weapon to fight these demons. This book was very engaging and eye-opening. " - Mary Ann B.

 

"After You was everything I was expecting, and more. Evil is everywhere, and there is a spiritual war going on that no one likes to think about, or talk about. But. It. Is. Real. Somehow Rodgers has managed to show us how easily our thoughts and minds can be taken over by evil. It can and does happen! Rodgers brings such an interesting perspective here, and one that quite frankly scares me – in a good way. Sometimes you have to know how the other side is thinking and acting so you know how to better prepare yourself in a war. Although this book is fictional, I think it depicts it very well, and gives readers a glimpse into what may be going on with their friends, their loved ones, and just the world around us. This is a book that will stick with me for a long time. It certainly makes me think about all that is going on in the world, and how easily people can be overtaken by evilness. Rodgers has gone outside the box with this, and I think it’s a book that can open your eyes." - Jessica B.

 

"A concisely written, easy but thought-provoking read meant to prompt the reader to earnestly consider the power of consistent and persistent prayer. This new to me author has decidedly impressed me with this relatively short but memorable story. Perhaps meant for a YA audience, the message of the very real spiritual battle is one all readers can take to heart. This would make an excellent study book for youth, parents and leaders." - Jennifer B.

"This book definitely did not turn out as I expected. In a good way! Here, you can see how, in everyday life, temptations come between us and God, and how it isn't always easy to choose the right way. It also shows the power of praying for others...it can change everything. "After You" is written exquisitely- it almost felt as if I was right there, witnessing everything and hearing everyone's thoughts.I definitely enjoyed this one of a kind book, and am looking forward to reading more of Rodgers' books!" - Violet P. 

"I couldn't put the book down - it was so wonderful to read. The Bible makes it clear that there is a spiritual battle going on around us, and this book shows us one way it could look.. The book is a pretty quick read - I wanted to see what was going to happen next, Congratulations, Sunshine, on a great book. I love your imagination and insight into the spiritual realm. I recommend this book to all believers in Jesus, and those who want to know the truth about what is going on around you that you cannot see." - Steve A.

"I like this book! 😃 it brought me understanding about the Holy Trinity, particularly the Holy Spirit. For some reason the Holy Spirit always eluded me. But this book brought so much understanding. thank you for writing it!" - Zena

 

"There were days God used it to convict me, remind me, and always bless me. It was a timely book for this stage of my life. I am so happy you allowed God to use you to write the book. It truly felt God ordained." -Veronica T. 

 

"Sunshine's book about the Trinity is a breath of fresh air to all who are seeking wisdom about the Godhead." -RuthAnn W.

 

"I have read numerous books on the Trinity and can say this is by far the best book on this topic. It does not set out to defend the doctrine of the Trinity (plenty of good books on that) or to demonstrate that the Trinity is indeed a truth taught in Scripture. Sunshine Rodgers sets out to demonstrate how the Trinity is integral to the very core of the Christian faith and how the Trinity in numerous ways makes Christianity set apart in many good ways from every other religion out there." - Mack Z.

"This book covers the deepest theological concepts in an exceptionally approachable way; I recommend it to every single Christian. It contains a beautiful confession of the dogma which binds every Christian together and sets Christianity apart as completely unique." - Adam G.

 

"Wow! This book sheds new light on my view of the Trinity. This is one of my favorite books of all time and I read a lot of theology books. It explains something so fundamental to my Christian belief and faith. I highly recommend this book." - Skylar

 

"Having read numerous systematic theologies and various apologetic books on the subject of the Trinity I hesitated to delve into this volume. my hesitancy stemmed from the feeling that this would merely be a rehash of what I had read previously. I was pleasantly surprised by the fresh approach and practical manner in which the author approached the subject. This is more than an ordinary book, I recommend it." - Maya Maya

 

"Sunshine Rodgers is an excellent writer. Her conversational style and wide-ranging quotes from other authors caused me to fly through this book as I wanted to know more and more about our glorious and loving God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit." - Nolan N.

 

"I will spend many years returning to the highlights in this book. My view of God was expanded, deepened and enriched. I want to know Him more, love Him more, serve Him more and delight in Him more and help others do the same." - Leah A.

 

"Unlike other books on the Trinity, the author's goal is not just to teach the theology of the Trinity but to bring the listener to a place where they desire to worship God. It inspires devotion to God."  - Jaxon J.

 

"This was a very in-depth look at the Trinity for our small group book study. We were able to figure out most of the material through group discussion; listening to one chapter per day. It was definitely a worthwhile audio book."  -  Wsil Ali

 

"Wonderful! The audio book is narrated by Tina Shuster and her voice is perfect for this book. The book is written in such a way that no matter what denomination you are, you can lean and gleam something from this book. I loved the real life examples. I read this book from cover to cover like you would a novel but I can see it being used as a reference book. Sunshine Rodgers, your book is wonderful and I can see the hand of God was with you as you wrote it."  - Suzan

 

""The perfect book. I felt closer to God just listening to this book. I love the details and the in-depth teachings." - Jim S.

"Very Captivating. I found the book valuable. The Trinity has radical implications for my relationship with God as well as my relationship with others. The Trinity is entirely practical to every aspect of my life."  - HM

 

"God the Father, Jesus the Big Brother, Holy Spirit the Best Friend is the life-giving truth that separates Christianity from all other religions. It has been explained very well here. Thank you, Sunshine Rodgers!" - Sierra B. 

"Listening to this audio book, I found myself doing exactly what the title of this book calls for. I recommend this book over and over and over again. I loved it as a pastor! It is good, has significant implications for day to day life, and is relatable! Go grab it! You won't regret it!" - Jane

"I love this book and will listen to it again and again." - Angela E. 

 

"I loved this book! Have you ever had trouble understanding the roles of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit? This book has helped me to better understand! It is easy and enjoyable to read and provides a positive and uplifting mindset... I highly recommend!" - Heather
