GOOD VIBRATIONS
Overcoming Spasmodic Dysphonia

Amazon.com - $15.95
21
8 Pages

I am an Evangelist, and in May 2005 my voice gave out. After speaking on a Sunday morning, a lady came up to me after the service and said, “I can’t understand you. I don’t know what you are saying.”

I was diagnosed at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center by Dr. Clark Rosen and Dr. Jackie Gartner-Schmidt with Abductor Spasmodic Dysphonia. I declined the Botox injections and began rehabilitation being instructed in the vocal exercises developed by Dr. Raymond Smolover known as Vocal Behavior Training. Not a quick fix, but a real reversal of the paralyzing effects of SD, little by little my voice began to be restored. For three years I went to therapy twice a week and worked the other days on my own doing the exercises. I went from being able to barely make sound on eight notes on a piano to making sound on four octaves after three years of work. I did not know if I would ever talk again. (Most of the time I stayed in my bedroom.) Today I am back to public speaking and even singing, which I never even dreamed I would do again.

Good Vibrations is my story of how I had my voice restored to functional use. It is a step by step account of the exercises I did, and the fears I encountered. It also contains email correspondence of two people who were diagnosed with SD and I instructed each of them in the exercises by email with their voices being improved.

It is my desire that others who are suffering from SD can receive hope and help in overcoming SD. Dr. J. Gartner-Schmidt states, “…most professionals believe that success in voice therapy is defined as a return to a functional level of voicing…” Then according to this statement these exercises have been a success for me, for I have returned to a functional level of voicing, and that is from a public speaker, an evangelist, who at times is very hard on his voice.

Even As God
Healing Relationships Biblically

Sermon in a book series, Volume 3

190 Pages

$9.95 Print: Amazon, Barnes&Noble
$3.99 Digital: Epub, Kindle, Nook,

Have you ever been hurt? I am not referring to a broken arm or leg, but in your heart. Have you ever had your heart broken? Or maybe your heart wasn’t completely broken, but what somebody did or said hurt you in your heart.

Have you ever wanted a relationship to be mended so much that you apologize to someone, even though you have done nothing wrong? Actually you are the one who has been wronged, but, to you, that does not matter. You just long to be close to them like it once was.

Has your life changed since the fall out? Do you wonder how you can go on with your life since the fall out? Are your thoughts consumed with the situation?

When you understand the responsibilities on both sides of a broken relationship, it is plain to see what needs to take place for true reconciliation. Often this understanding has a liberating effect on those who are hurting so that they no longer live under a dark cloud of guilt.

Even As God is not rehashed Psychology, nor is it a feel good dissertation. This is a step by step explanation of the Biblical path for reconciliation with someone who has wronged you. It is based upon Ephesians 4:32
And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

The end result is a true healing of the relationship.


A note from the author
Sermon In A Book is a series of sermons that I have preached in meetings across America, as well as in other countries. It would have been far easier for me to merely have these sermons transcribed into books, but in such cases the reader is a third party merely observing the communication between the preacher and the congregation he is preaching to.

In this series, these sermons are written out by myself, and in so doing are able to directly “connect” with the reader. By writing the sermons I have far greater liberty to fully explain and communicate the points that I desire to make.

It is my desire that you will be ministered to by the Lord Jesus Christ through the reading of this book.

Here Comes The Bride - Second Edition
A Critique of the Baptist Bride Heresy

174 Pages
Print $9.95
- Amazon.com
Kindle $3.99 - Kindle
Print $9.95 & Nook $3.99 - Barnes & Noble


Is a local, Baptist church the bride of Christ? Did John the Baptist start the first Baptist church with Jesus as one of his members? Is a saved Methodist, Lutheran or Catholic in the bride of Christ? What is the Baptist Bride heresy?

You may wonder at the absurdity of these questions, and yet the Baptist Bride heresy is a predominate belief amongst many Baptist churches.

From years of experience and much study, Ken McDonald writes to refute this heresy. With actual quotes from men such as Dr. Jack Hyles, Pastor James R. Love, Dr. Thomas Cassidy, Roy Mason and others, you will begin to see the seriousness and proliferation of this belief. Ken McDonald then takes you on, and shows you from the words of God (AV 1611) the faults and deceptions of the Baptist Bride heresy.

Jesus Talk To Me
Have you ever desired to get the Lord's attention?

Sermon in a Book Series: Volume 1

54 Pages
Print $6.95 and Digital $2.99:
Amazon, Barnes and Noble

The first in the Sermon in a book series. This book is a sermon of mine, but instead of it being transcribed, I have written it out to you the reader. That way it is much more personal.

This book is about four people in the New Testament of the Bible who desired to get the Lord's attention. One of them, though persistent, is completely ignored by the Lord Jesus Christ. Why? The Lord responds differently to the other three, with one of them having a very close friendship and conversation. Why?

This book will cause you to examine yourself to see which of the four you might be.

When Jesus comes and fellowships with you, your life is filled with peace, joy, comfort and rest.

Defiled
The Spiritual Dangers of Alternative Medicine

290 Pages
Print $14.95,

Available on Kindle


Many people believe that alternative medicine, such as Yoga and acupuncture, is a more natural way of healing the body and the soul. But is this holistic medicine rooted in something far more spiritually dangerous? Yes, says author Ken McDonald in his thought-provoking new book, Defiled.

McDonald uses his own unique experiences as well as extensive documentation to get the point of his book across. He and his family went to alternative doctors who were recommended to them by sincere Christians. Instead of providing helpful results, however, the new age treatments quenched the workings of the Holy Spirit in their lives. When the McDonalds stopped the treatment and repented to God, they found peace and a restored fellowship with Jesus Christ.

Fascinated, McDonald then set about researching the subject. What his research revealed both shocked and surprised him. Pouring over textbooks on acupuncture, medical journals, books on the occult and more, McDonald compared them to the word of God. He discovered that forms of alternative medicine such as iridology, acupuncture, and homeopathy, to name a few, are often presented as viable and effective options for healthcare; yet dabbling in these practices is akin to dabbling in the occult. Because these therapies defile the spirit and grieve the Lord, they need to be avoided at all costs. Illuminating and shocking, Defiled is a must read for any thinking Christian.

Pursuit is the story of how for the first years of my saved life I sought to find and to know God's perfect will for my life. Through those years I made many mistakes and learned many lessons. From trying to Pastor to the point of being homeless while having a wonderful wife and two children.

This book is very transparent as I do not try to gloss over things. I made many mistakes along the way. From various heartaches and valleys, to times of joy and mountain tops, you will take a trip with me as you read this book.

I am thankful that the Lord has used this testimony to help others to keep going and serving the Lord Jesus Christ even though the trials in their life seem impossible to overcome. The Lord is with you, even in the dark times. The path may seem so dim, until a stream of light shines down to show you the way He would have you to go.

Brother Ken openly bears his heart as he describes his "hot pursuit" of God's perfect will for his life. Have you struggled…have you searched,,,have you been discouraged in :pursuit"? This book will encourage you and help you to see that you are never alone in that struggle. A good read and hard to put down.

Dealing With Bad In-Laws
A Bible Study on Jacob and Laban

Kindle $3.99
Order Kindle Version
Print & Digital: Barnes&Noble



It has been strange to me that I have never heard a sermon on In-Laws, even though trouble from In-Laws is one of the major causes of trouble in a marriage. What's more is there have been sermons that I have heard where obedience to parents is to take place even though you are married.

In this book I take the reader through what the word of God says about the matter as well as the proper solutions to the problems of bad In-Laws.

Is your marriage suffering due to trouble being caused by In-Laws? It doesn't have to be that way if you will follow what the Bible says.
