Democrats Just Didn't Take Care of Home

May 03, 2017 by Dorothy Burton

Personally, I believe the majority culture will increasingly become hopelessly divided if God's church doesn't step up to the plate. We are seeing the same battles fought on the tipping scale of culture with one side up one day, then down the next. The other side up one day, then down the next. As we call it in politics, the "whip hand." Y'all ever heard of the whip hand? Politicos know what I'm talking about.Read more

Praise for Why We Fall

I sat down today, and began to read your book Why We Fall. Once I began to read it this morning, I couldnt put it down. I read the entire book today. I wanted to let you know that it really blessed me, and I intend to have my entire leadership team read it. It has really helped me. Great book!

Pastor Phillip J. McKinney, Believers Christian Church, Eagle MI

Why We Fall by Dorothy Burton is a forceful and to the point treatment of many frailties of our present day. She writes from wisdom, experience, and inspiration and shares insights that will help lead us from a fallen state. I could not help but be drawn to her compassion and, at the same time she keeps it real and pulls no punches. She asks the questions that many ask as they look for reasons for their present state. She offers real answers and presents them in a very readable and understandable manner. A book to read and read again.

I gave a copy of your book to a young woman in our residential housing program and she loves the book. Several times she mentioned to me how your book has helped her understand what has happened in her life and how it contributed to her current situation of homelessness. Its always a good feeling to know that your labor of love is helping others to overcome the obstacles in life. Blessings!
