Simply Faith: The Birthing of A Warrior
Author: Shelia Smith
Genre: Christian Living/Inspirational
ISBN: 979-8-218089-38-2

Simply Faith is about encountering God in the everyday and learning to trust him in the unknown. Every word of God is true. There is nothing that He has said that can return void. Yet even in this, this is something that we all as believers struggle with at one time or another, the validity of God’s Word. Regardless of where we find ourselves in that struggle, one thing is true; we must learn to live simply by faith. This book, in a very gentle and revelatory way, reveals how we are to do that.


Any revelation gleaned comes from God’s Word, which is the source of all truth, and is the reason this book is entitled, Simply Faith, for faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17).

Lead is a heavy, soft, malleable metal. Due to its physical and chemical properties, industry has found countless uses for lead in our daily lives. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, while certain uses of lead are banned, lead is still found in a myriad of products. Lead enters the body through ingestion or inhalation. The dynamics of long-term lead poisoning of children can affect a child’s life well into adulthood. Moreover, one of the long-term effects could result in criminal behavior. For approximately four years, I worked on research highlighted in this book, studying maps of lead poisoning in conjunction with psychological effects on persons within Chicagoland neighborhoods. The goal with my research was to compare map results with previous records indicating lead-contamination, then verify whether or not there was a correlation to high crime or academically low achieving neighborhoods.
