Coffee cup

Welcome to the DLWR Bookstore!

If you were in your favorite bookstore and you found one of these books, you would open the cover, feel the pages, browse the table of contents, and even read a bit to see if you liked it. Nowadays, you’d also probably grab a cup of coffee and a bagel at the bookstore’s cafe to enjoy while you browse.

Well, we can’t let you feel the pages, and this digital cup of coffee is about the best we can do in terms of refreshment, but we can let you view the table of contents to see what’s included and we can let you download and read a chapter for free with no obligation to buy and no credit card required. However, if you like what you read, please consider buying a copy.

You can purchase a copy by clicking the BUY NOW links which will take you directly to in a new window.

To view the table of contents along with a free chapter, please click the DOWNLOAD CHAPTER links below (right-click on your PC or ⌘+click on your Mac to save it directly to your computer). Enjoy!

And in keeping with our virtual bookstore theme, if you have any questions, we’ll be glad to help. You will likely find us in the coffee shop on the third floor … next to the scones.


From Fortress to Freedom

Walls can take years to construct. We build them for all sorts of purposes, but mostly because we believe that walls keep us safe. But what if erecting all of these protective walls and establishing all of these safety rules really only imprisons us — leaving us with nothing more than a false sense of security?

From Fortress to Freedom tells the story of the dismantling of the walls that kept author Deborah L. W. Roszel from experiencing the true joy and freedom that exist in God’s garden outside of those walls.


The Mom’s Guide to Surviving West Point  (New 2nd Edition!)

Co-authors Lisa Browne Joiner and Deborah L. W. Roszel team up to bring advice and strong encouragement to parents of the young men and women who dare to step up to the long gray line as cadets at West Point, the United States Military Academy.  The advice is good for all parents, but the straight talk tempered with humor brings sage wisdom to those who need it most, the parents who’ve not just dropped their students off at college, but have simultaneously bid them farewell (in 60 seconds) as they enter the ranks of the U.S. Armed Forces.
