“Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit says the Lord of hosts” Zechariah 4:6″
Why a GULL as a logo… and what is LARUS PRESS?
Larus is Latin for Gull.
“I’ve always loved gulls. I grew up in Northern Ontario near a big lake where herring hulls were all around me. I moved to other areas in my teens and university years, near the Great Lakes of Erie and Ontario… and more gulls.
In times of distress, even before I knew Jesus, I would watch the gulls and envy their freedom. Yes, I have lived my share of disappointments. But I always knew gulls had something I wanted… because gulls are survivors and they soar.
I’ve overcome adversity to learn to soar, and I encourage all Believers to soar into their destiny, their unique purpose in Christ.
…but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
- Philippians 3:13b-14 NKJV
Let us not take for granted our time but let us “run the race set before us” by the “author and finisher of our faith”. (Hebrews 12:1-2)

Non-fiction: Spiritual and interpersonal growth is key to growing in the likeness of Christ and fulfilling your ministry. Knowing our faith and its origins is a key to our own growth and sharing our faith with others. Understanding the world but refraining from being swept up by it is important to our spiritual maturity.
Fiction: Storylines seek to deepen the reader’s awareness of God, the Truth of His love and justice, sparking questions or instilling a sense of higher purpose for the reader. Children’s fiction offers an alternative to dark and moody books about superstition or the occult. Sarah’s books will always encourage the imagination of youth and uphold their innocence. Sarah’s alternative supernatural fantasy is on current release: “Confronting the Darkness” has been compared to works of JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis and Madeleine L’Engle (“A Wrinkle in Time”). The toddler book “The Faithful Prince” introduces worship to the very young in a fun and exciting way.
From Dr Sarah: I have come through “the fire”. The LORD has given me tools through experience and suffering, to ensure I overcome any obstacle as it arises – emotional, relational or spiritual. I offer you these tools. My desire is to see every Believer free, confident, equipped, and operating in GOD’s Calling.
