The King's Choice is based on the Song of Solomon from the Holy Scriptures. It is as current today as it was when Solomon penned his words, "Come away my Beloved." These are the words from the heart of God to his people. His desire is that everyone know Him and meet Him on the mountaintop of spiritual understanding.

 

The King's Choice is a beautiful love story using metaphors. It is the language and expression of love between a man and a woman. These same expressions are used in experiencing God's love, which will bring spiritual matters to the natural heart. Only through love can a heart know its completion. Only God's love will bring down walls, and bring us from intense need to complete satisfaction. Solomon wrote 1,005 songs, but this beautiful eulogy of love, known as Songs of Songs, is the one that speaks of the one love that captured his heart. You will experience your own spiritual journey as you walk through the five stages of love which are portrayed in The King's Choice.

"The King's Choice" made me see and understand that books in the Old Testament are not just "stories." The Scripture in them was put there by God for a reason and a purpose. In the Song, we see how Christ loves the church and how He woos His Shulamite bride (the Church). God's unconditional love to us is the main theme of The King's Choice. With the Holy Spirit's leading, I will never read the Old Testament the same way. The study guide was invaluable to opening these doors of understanding."

"With the vibrant hues of forgiveness, healing, restoration, and freedom, Betty Slade paints a beautiful portrait of Mary Magdalene's life transformed by an encounter with Jesus. A stunning narrative of a woman no longer bound by the chains of her past but instead embracing her bright future."

Elizabeth White

Cameo, Story of Ruth, is a thumbnail sketch of the history of Israel and its redeemer. The events set forth are contempoprary with the first half of Judges and cover a span of 12 years. The story takes us from the country of Moab to the fIeld of Bethlehem, from the threshing floor to the city of Bethlehem. The setting is set in the time of Judges 17:6. "In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes." The title Cameo is a gem or medallion, engraved in contrasting colors. Ruth, meaning friend, would not only become a friend to Naomi, but a friend to God and would be the one used to establish God's purpose for Israel and for the world.

Mary Magdalene is a woman with seven demons. She yearns to be forgiven and free. Her journal chronicles her life in Magdala and her struggles to break free of demon possession. Every woman who knows pain of the soul will find herself in this beautiful love story. Mary Magdalene's life unfolds from bondage into belonging.

 

"In 2009, I painted an oil of Mary Magdalene titles, "Mary, Do not cling to Me." The eyes in this portrait haunted me and I felt she had something to say. I saw her pain and her yearning to tell me about her redeption. From a life snatched away in childhood to an unbearable demon possessed existence, she buried her inner self. She flaunted her pride and lost her dignity. When she came to herself, she turned from the seduction of lies, blew out the red candle, and wrapped her soul in the promise of redemption."
