Over the past year I have felt led more and more to help provide a space for Christians to share their voices with the world. It is through this desire that I have begun to work on creating a publishing company for Christians to be able to publish books, articles, or whatever they would like. I know that my desire to share the gospel, in my own words with others, cannot be the only one out there, there has to be other believers who want to do the same thing right? So, I began building a website and thinking about the different pieces that I wanted to include in 5 Solas Publishing (the name that I have chosen to use). 5 Solas comes from the solas used during and after the protestant reformation to describe the Christian's faith. The five solas are: Sola Scriptura (Scripture Alone), Sola Gratia (Grace Alone), Solus Christus (Christ Alone), Sola Fide (Faith Alone), and Soli Deo Gloria (For the Glory of God Alone).
My desire for 5 Solas Publishing was to provide a space for authors desiring to publish books. There are a couple new books that are in the works from two different authors. I wanted to give space to those who wanted to share their story with others. Stories that include pain and suffering and the many ways that God heals and mends while at the same time growing and stretching His children. I wanted to provide a place that people could turn to in order to find resources that would help them in their walk with Christ. But most of all, I wanted to create something that would bring glory to God alone.
I am not sure how God will use 5 Solas Publishing, and I may never know the extent of the reach that it has. If it reaches even one person for Jesus and gives them the tools that they need to grow as a Christian, then it will have accomplished its purpose. I am so excited to see what God has planned, both for 5 Solas and for myself, moving forward.
I am eagerly anticipating the release of several articles written by a variety of people from all sorts of different backgrounds about God's mercy, abundant grace, sustaining love, and powerful salvation. I hope that these stories will touch many lives and resonate with many issues and situations that other Christians find themselves in. I look forward to the feedback they will receive and can't wait to see what other stories of hope and joy arise from these stories being shared with others.
Please stay tuned for more information to come. And check out the new website for 5 Solas Publishing, updates will be ongoing!!
