Roya Whitmore has never had dreams like this before. Could her husband, Solomon, be cheating on her, after three kids and another on the way? More dreams come, and the events of her everyday life begin to match the events foretold in her dreams. As they do, she sees a path of faith and resilience that she never realized existed.
She joins the Alliance Crusaders for Christ, founded by her pastor, Isaiah Williams. She learns that their stated purpose as evangelists is only part of a deeper mission, to prepare the Church to survive the last days.
Throughout this series of apocalyptic novels, there will be references to things you know to be true, and extrapolations to things that are likely to occur. This first book of the Miss the Mark Series places, in a fictional setting, things that do occur in the lives of people who follow Christ, along with miracles and gifts from God. We are never perfect, but we know the One who guides our lives.

Excerpt of Tormented Dreams, Miss the Mark Series, Book1:
"Sin came into the world through one person, and death came through sin. So death spread to everyone, because everyone sinned" (Romans 5:12, GW).
Task Force Special Operations Headquarters
Chief commanding officer, Les Blanche's presence
alarmed the Task Force Special Operations officers and soldiers to halt and
salute their leader. He stood near the sound booth and stared at the HD screens
in front of him. He pressed one of the buttons to playback a report of a CNN
broadcast of Salvator Lothar. Les surveyed the room and studied the facial
expressions and slight gestures of the men and women as they watched the
shortened video on the devastating events of world destruction. Les sought
after an immense outcome. He carefully observed a few officers. He saw one praying to her God by clutching tightly on her cross, mouth moving to a whisper
unheard to her peers. Another with his eyes closed and head shifted upward as
if he was praying in silence. A slight nod by another officer; Les sensed an
unseen presence was in the room. He focused on Lothar?s discussion but kept
heed of these few officers whom he felt would be a problem. They were not
proceeding with the new regulations and updated mandatory combat drills.
just seen a series of videos of war among third world countries like Syria and
Iraq," said Les. "Some heads of state are doing this to their own countries as a result of evils introduced
by previous rulers. They enforce their dictatorship in their countries with
such catastrophic events. It is time for us to reinvent our scare tactics to
show these countries that we're ready for whatever they may have in warfare.
Our country is known as the land of the free, and we are free to make our own decisions as a leader of weaponry.?
Some of the commanding officers nodded in
agreement. Others stared intently at Les. All were alert, awaiting instruction
at a moment's notice.
"Therefore, as you see this man, Salvator
Lothar, is our next standing world leader. He has propositioned tactics for
this special force to govern a safer
country and a peaceful one. We have positioned each man and woman in this room
to be the first to not only protect our country
but to receive the implant?this delicate but powerful device?in your bodies.
Here watch this clip..." He pressed the next button. He saw their approval
nods as the general atmosphere changed, but there still were a few skeptics in
the room. He dug deeper into his spiritual sensor and detected that some had
Christian beliefs against this proposal of the biometric chip.
Les knew he had to set the example. He needed these
men to not only respect him but fear him. The next chief officer and president
of the United States would unite all the nations, and also would be willing to
exterminate any that didn't follow his will. After the viewing, he glorified
their role, ?So, you see how you?ll do a great deed for our country, and set an
example for others.? He looked around, noting still a few who appeared to be
resolute, and continued, ?We will become a safer nation. We won?t have crime or
theft because the security measures will track every move someone who will harm
us makes. This device, as you can barely see, is only the size of a mustard
at the woman who fingered her cross, he said abruptly, "We will
not tolerate any moles, traders, or those
who will not take the will of our Messiah." He heard an obnoxious sigh
from someone in the room. His turned his head, and his eyes went to slits after
targeting the perpetrator.
On an impulse, he considered the few soldiers he
eyed earlier. He sensed their rebellious demeanors while listening to the
demands with frequent twitches, holding on to their hanging cross necklace, or
praying gesture. He knew they wouldn't follow the new order. This new mission
assigned to him by Salvator Lothar could not fail. Taking matters into his
hands, he yanked the gun from his holster on the side of his belt and shot each
target quickly in the head. Blood sprinkled on those who stood nearby and on
the video equipment near the control booth. Not a stem of remorse coursed
through his body. Screams echoed in the room as the gun blasts rang in the ears
of the remaining soldiers.
One of the soldiers stepped up to him and tried to
stop him, asking, "Who is the Messiah? And why are you killing good men
and women? Most of us are willing to do all we can for our country, including
taking this device into our bodies..."
Les shot him in the face to stop him. Blood gushed
all over the man?s army attire as he fell to the ground in agony, his breath
gurgling through the blood pouring from his mouth.
"Now does anyone else have any comments?"
to the medical quarters. Get him out of here! I hope the rest of you make the
wise decision, and this process will move steadily and painlessly. This
proposal is the first that will take place and will become an imminent recommendation for this country to
get on the good foot with our Messiah to
come. Next, we will work to get ready to reinforce the biometric chip first in
America using other tactics, and then many other nations will follow.?
The remaining officers listened quietly and
attentively, with masked apprehension, lest they too become the next gunshot
"We will split some of you in various sectors for varied assignments needed in the
operation, and others will be in drills to acquire new war tactics. We selected
each and every one of you, specifically, for the task at hand. Make us proud.
You also will be paid handsomely, as you walk that way, and follow Dr.
Whitbacker. Then you will receive a white form that will disclose your salaries
and revised job descriptions under Special Ops governmental higher-ups,"
Les said in a commanding voice and pointed in Dr. Whitbacker's direction. Dr.
Whitbacker stood upright with his hands on his sides as they buzzed him in,
waving the others to follow him through the silver, secured doors.
Les was pleased the first order of affairs was
finally happening, and he was easily wiping out those who would refuse. He
contacted a clean-up team to remove these
dead bodies and prepare falsified documentation to be logged in their secured
database. After they finished, he would send out officers to report their
deaths to their families.
