As told in the book Josiah’s Fire, God unlocked Josiah’s spiritual senses to the deep joys of heaven—renewing their hope, joy, and excitement for God’s Word, power, and presence. Josiah’s gems on their Josiah’s Fire Facebook page delight people from around the world with his wise, thought-provoking insights. This 21-day devotional unites three inspired voices—Tahni Cullen, Josiah Cullen, and Cheryl Ricker—as they share Josiah’s revelatory quotes, personal stories, Scripture for meditation, and prompts for reflection. You will see that blessings come in unexpected forms, personally prepared for you by the good gift giver himself. When received as gifts, these blessings will increase your gratitude, joy, and hope.

When Jonas is assigned the task of becoming the next Receiver of Memory, the Giver transmits memories of a past world where hatred, war and love existed, revealing the truth to the young boy. Jonas soon realizes the horrors of his “perfect” society. Through the memories imparted to him from the Giver, Jonas also learns of an alternative, better world.
