this is our background story is one of love; a love of God so great He not only delivered us from the life that was creating turmoil and heartache in both of our lives, but He transformed us and our lives in the process. the story of us. Our faith and religion
As far as DL, God found him in a state of not wanting to live due to the chronic, daily migraines he lived with and the loss that it created. He lost his job, his home, and his marriage. Despair set in but God! He alone through His saving grace afforded DL through Jesus Christ gave him the will to live and to continue on.
As for me, Sandra Lott, I was born and raised in Texas and married to someone wonderful until drugs and alcohol got the best of him. It created overwhelming fear, hardship and emotional despair due to the emotional and verbal abuse that comes from being with an addict. It left myself and our two boys feeling not worthy of love, feeling invisible and as if we did not matter. We lived in a state of fear due to the rages that came as a result of the withdrawals he went through. Hopeless, I wanted to take my life. Then the Lord found me and gave me the will to continue on.
As I was beginning to grow spiritually, the passion God gave me to study the Bible and to write grew more and more. It helped me to cope until the worst day of my life, my youngest son, sixteen at the time, was killed in an automobile accident. The loss devastated me, the marriage ended and the loss and abuse took its toll on our oldest son as well. I began to think that heartache was all that was in store for me. But I did not give up on God and the passion He instilled in my heart to write. Book after book was birthed in my heart as well as a passion to help other women discover the princess in Christ that they truly are, and that no one has the right to use or abuse them.
As both of us began to heal, and our hearts were ready to love again, God brought us together. We were drawn to each other through a common passion, God. We met through our publisher and now we are one. The passion we both have for God and to spread His love grew in our hearts for each other. Our love for the Lord and of writing drew us together and now, we want to share the love of God He birthed in us with the world through our books. So Your New Life Books was born. God gave us a new life and took us from despair to each other. He can do that for you. We want the world to experience a new life in Christ, which is the common theme in every book we write.
God held our hearts in His hands through all of our trials and still does today. A passion grew in us to help the world understand just how great the love of God is; our flesh cannot truly fathom how great and how deep and how wide God’s love for mankind truly is; all we have to do is look at the cross and that should speak for itself.
I hope you enjoy our site and our books. Please contact us for prayer or questions.

We believe that nothing can separate us from the love of God.
We believe that there IS a heavenly eternal home waiting for us and we will live with our Savior for an eternity.
We believe there is only one God, the God of Heaven and earth and in Jesus Christ the Son of God.
We believe that we shall have no other gods before Him.
(Exodus 20:3) “You shall have no other gods before Me.”
(I Timothy 2:5-6) “For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all people.”
(John 3:16) “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
We believe that salvation is only found in Jesus Christ and in belief in His name and receiving Him as personal Lord and Savior.
(Acts 4:12) “Salvation is found in no-one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
Jesus is the only way to God.
(John 14:6 ) “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
(John 3:3) “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.”
(I John 1:9) “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”
(John 1:12) “Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God.”
(Romans 10:10) “For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.”
The Bible is the Word of God.
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God spoken into the hearts of man. The Bible being the Word of God is alive and as we speak it as God spoke it, it will come alive in our hearts and encourage us and give us faith and strength.
(John 1:1-5) “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
(II Timothy 3:16) “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
(Hebrews 4:12) “For the Word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”
(Romans 4:17) “As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations, before Him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.”
(Romans 12:2) “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
We are children of God, saved by the blood of Jesus and believe that all who call on the name of the Lord will be saved.
(Romans 10:13) “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Religions are man’s way of interpreting the Bible, but there is NO mention of Baptists, Catholics, Protestants, Lutherans, Pentecostals etc. in the Bible, only Christians and that is what we are. We choose a certain Church to go to but we are Christians and children of the Most High God.
(Acts 11:26) “The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch.”
May God bless you as you diligently study His Word and draw closer to Him through your faith. Never give up on Him and continue daily to allow Him to grow your faith through the trials He allows. Strive to learn more about Him and to love Him more and in doing this, His love will overflow from within you to the world; “streams of living water will flow from within them,” and life example, truly living out what we believe is one of the best testimonies we can ever have to show the world in need who Jesus really is; Love Personified.
May God Bless you!
