First Chapter Fridays! Shameless Persistence by Sandra Bretting

Do you sometimes feel as if no one’s listening to you when you pray? That you’re wasting your time? Or worse, that God is ignoring your prayers, while he’s answering everyone else’s?Maybe you don’t believe in prayer. After all, prayer means talking to someone you can’t see about things you can’t control. What’s the point?Whether you’re a longtime Christian who needs a shot of adrenaline to re-energize your prayer life or a skeptic who doubts whether prayer works, this book is for you. Here, you’ll read about people who confronted the same doubts and others who beat seemingly unbeatable odds with prayer, like the author.Best of all, you’ll learn what the Bible has to say.

My name is Rebecca Benston. I’m a Christian. I’m a woman. I’m a mother. I’m a writer. I’m a thinker. When I write fiction, I am usually writing a mystery series called The Rona Shively Stories. My P.I. character, Rona Shively is feisty, fearless and fabulous and is usually caught up in something she doesn’t want to be caught up in. In addition to this series, I also have a blog called Higher Ground for Life. Through this blog, I’m hoping to reach women or anyone who is seeking to develop a relationship with God and give them inspiration to get out there and follow His path for their lives!
I also have a blog called Leading the Follower. This one is my favorite. I write about religion, faith, spirituality and all that goes along with it. What we believe, what we don’t believe, what we are told to believe and how society feels about believing in general. I do a lot of testifying here and some of what I say may make you angry. Most of it will make you think. Some of it will make you cry. Any of it could make you laugh. It’s really up to you.

If you are looking for practical advice, honest conversation, and no nonsense observations about living in today’s world, check out my blogs at and and and And if you’re so inclined, you can purchase my books and some other great, inspirational works from Higher Ground Books & Media at

Be blessed!
