Losing Dani Strumm

Cover 5_edited.jpg

Dani was a natural in school. Her only distraction was an absent mother and her suicidal brother, whom she felt overly protective. Maybe because she assumed the role when her mother abandoned them, or perhaps it was just her nurturing way.

The mission was only possible once every 60 years because of the strange elliptical orbit of Tau Ceti e, which made it impossible to reach more than once in a person's lifetime. However, modern technology did allow humankind to get to the edge of the planet's orbit every 60 years for approximately three months. Dani aspired to travel this great distance to carry out this dangerous and previously failed mission. Unfortunately, the last mission team was never heard from after a scouting trip to the planet 60 years earlier.

Her job was a simple one. Release scientific orbital satellites around Tau Ceti e to gather important information for team two, which would form a landing and exploration party.

Dani would find herself scrambling for the emergency escape pod to flee a dying ship. Within minutes she would find herself on an alien planet with two weeks of supplies, two days of oxygen, injured, and her rescue nearly two months away.

Drowning in Milk: A Guide to Spiritual Growth


What does it mean to be a Mature Christian?

In this book, we will simplify the definition of biblical Christianity so we can focus more on the subject at hand: spiritual maturity. This book will also abstain from denominational or differing doctrinal points of view on Salvation to keep its focus on the subject matter. Instead, the concentration will be on scripturally defining spiritually mature and immature Christians, looking at the possible reasons for immaturity. Beginning with the baseline of Christianity, Salvation in Jesus Christ, we look at the teachings in the gospels.

  • What is a Christian?

  • What is considered "immature" by biblical standards?

  • What are some of the causes and solutions to immaturity?

  • How can we ensure we are Spiritually Mature in Christ?


Drowning in Milk: A Guide to Spiritual Maturity answers these questions and more.
