New book unveils secrets in dealing with life ‘One Step at a Time’

Author George A. Downes dares believers to test their knowledge about the Bible and check if they are indeed living by the Word of God. In One Step at a Time, his newly released book through Xlibris, he looks into the past and present activities of man to ultimately focus on how a life with purpose can be truly achieved.

Nothing just happens; everything has a beginning and a direction. History proves the course of actions. All the great empires have had a humble start, a glorious peak, and then the fall. This is an apparent outcome in all courses of life, whether a nation, a neighborhood, a family, or even an individual’s life. One Step at a Time touches on this idea to remind readers that life is not always a walk in the park, but there are always Biblical guidelines and tips that can be followed to make the journey easier. Downes, in this release, profoundly discusses how man should focus not on the world or its attributes, but in the most important facet of life itself—man’s relationship with God and the church.

“My purpose in writing this book is to draw the attention of the Christian community to what is happening to the values of the church, how they are being compromised. And how through time, what was once its core values and the central focus of its mission has gradually shifted until many of its original precepts have been lost. It is my hope that through making the church aware of its condition it will awake and once more embrace the teachings of Christ and the scriptures,” shares the author.

Highly moving and deeply inspiring, One Step at a Time is a motivational book that takes the reader by the hand through coping with life with the help of Christ. For more information on this book, log on to
