You are changing jobs. Maybe you are doing this on your own, voluntarily. All too often people change jobs involuntarily. When a job change is forced on us, we often ask ourselves, “Why me?” I cannot answer this question for you. I can tell you that often it is not about you. I can also tell you why I wrote this book; because I have made many job changes, some voluntary, others not. In spite of those, I have consistently landed on my feet.

Most memoirs are written by famous men—important men who have led successful lives. One hears little of their wives except a “thank you for your patience” or a dedication in the introduction. This memoir is nothing like that. I have been married for fifty-two years, but you will scarcely find a mention of my husband in this book. This is my story. It is the story of a girl who left the still-war-torn United Kingdom and entered the confusing world of the Middle East. New languages, new customs, and a quick shift from the life of a single girl in Regent’s Park to a mother with a tiny baby in an Arab village with no doctors or other facilities, not even a telephone to call home. A sense of humor was required to survive, so I hope the reader will find the story amusing.

In this sequel to the novel, Southern Gospel, the residents of Truman County are forced to deal with the fallout from a sensational murder. The fact that the victim is one of the most prominent citizens of the county is shocking enough but when an arrest is made for the crime, its an even bigger surprise. As is to be expected, speculation abounds concerning motive and method. A wide variety of the county population, ranging from teenagers to senior citizens, becomes involved in the investigation and subsequent trial which is not a typical one even by Truman County standards. Against this background, Old Man Teke Thomas and Vern L. Upshaw two well-known Truman County men - are forced to deal with problems of their own, problems that in their own way will have great effects on the general welfare of Truman County. And, as was shown in Southern Gospel, Old Man Teke and Vern L. have their own unique approaches to the solutions of those problems.

Reprising the wide-open landscape format of, The Days Are Just Packed, Homicidal Psycho Jungle Cat chronicles another segment of the multifarious adventures of this wild child and his faithful, but skeptical, friend. If the best cartoons compel readers to identify themselves within the funny frames, then all who enjoy Calvin and Hobbes are creative, imaginative, and ... bad, bad, bad! Calvin, the irascible little boy with the stuffed tiger who comes to life are a pair bound for trouble. Boring school lessons become occasions for death-defying alien air battles, speeding snow sled descents elicit philosophical discussions on the meaning of life, and Hobbe's natural inclination to pounce on his little friend wreaks havoc on Calvin's sense of security. Calvin's the kid we all wish we'd been. Sassy, imaginative, far more verbal than his parents can manage, Calvin is the quintessential bad boy -- and the boy we love to see. He terrorizes little Susie, offers "Candid Opinions" from a neighborhood stand, and questions his parents' authority. "What assurance do I have that your parenting isn't screwing me up?" he demands. Calvin and Hobbes manages to say what needs to be said about childhood and life: "Eww, mud," says Calvin. "Look at this gooshy, dirty, slimy, thick, wet mud ... Bleecch ... Talk about a kid magnet!"

Of more than twenty book titles the Lord has placed upon my heart to write, this is the third. The Body of Christ is in dire need of the message of each and every book, this one being the most timely. Many influential Christians are being taken out by sickness on a regular basis; therefore something must be amiss in todays church. The shortfall is evidently in the modern believers lack of true biblical knowledge of the sickness and healing subject. This book fills in a multitude of gaps in the Christians understanding of one of Satans most subtle weapons. To my knowledge, no other book on the market contains the revelation found in this work. It will absolutely revolutionize your life!

My book comes from life experiences and the joy of having girls which was, and still is, a challenge as you watch them grow both spiritually and mentally. My home life was grounded. My parents believed in discipline and old-time beatings. Living in warm surroundings with grandparents who were in our lives, and aunts and uncles who also watched over us when we were younger has taught us that life is, and always will be, about family first. As you read in my book, you will see that every day started out with either a Scripture or just a simple prayer to say Thank you, Lord for bringing me through.

I pray that what I'm about to do will be a blessing. I do believe what God has given me and spoken to me, is for the church. I would like to emphasis I have never read any book paraphrased of Revelation. I have read many well-known authors, Matthew Henry, Clarence Larkin's, and others. But, God has given it to me in a paraphrase form, so that I can be a blessing to others. Revelation Revealed will help you understand the prophetic message and symbolic images. Pastor Laramore through the power of the Holy Spirit reveals and gives you the spiritual meaning of the seven bowls of the wrath of God, seven signs before the final judgment, seven seals of the scroll, the coming of the Kings of Kings, etc. Revelation Revealed is a bible-teaching tool.

Winner of the 2013 PEN/ESPN Award for Literary Sports Writing, Like Any Normal Day is a profound, powerful narrative of a golden boy's tragedy, a woman's unlived life, and a brother's complicated devotion. In the mid-1970s, brothers Buddy and Jimmy Miley were close, both on the verge of impressive athletic careers. A promising high school quarterback, Buddy's potential was cut short by an injury that left him quadriplegic. Immobile and imprisoned in his body for decades, Buddy would watch life pass by from his wheelchair, living at home under his mother's and brother's care, and wondering what his life could have been. Buddy and Jimmy visited special hospitals and traveled to Lourdes in search of a miracle, never losing hope as they searched for a cure. But as Buddy suffered increasing pain, and also realized that he would never be able to walk again—and never prove himself capable of being loved by Karen, a woman he'd first met in high school—he asked Jimmy to help him end his life. Beautifully written, both heart-wrenching and hopeful, Mark Kram Jr.'s Like Any Normal Day explores the important bonds between families and the depths of what we're willing to do for those we love. Like Any Normal Day is the winner of the 2013 PEN/ESPN Award for Literary Sports Writing.

This book is based on our lives. It starts very briefly in the United Kingdom and quickly moves to the Eastern Highland of Rhodesia. It moves through our childhood while we’re living in the eastern border areas, Umtali, Sabi Tanganda, and Chipinga. As we pass through our teenage years and become adults, it travels with us to Western Australia and then back to Chipinga. We share the lives of others as the Rhodesian Bush War escalates in what was a quiet and idyllic country town to one of the most dangerous and deadly districts in Rhodesia. Then the books deals with our final move back to Western Australia and our struggle to once again build a life for our children and ourselves. To most people, this may seem to be an unusual life, but to a Rhodesian, it would be considered pretty much the same story as many other families. Although it is our story, there are many stories told by others who have shared our way of life. It is about love, hate, and humor. It is about determination and desperation. It is about life and death and friendship and community spirit. Most of all, I hope it is a monument to those who died or were seriously injured, physically or mentally, black or white. It is also a salute to those incredible farmers, the Rhodesian armed forces, and those who worked in the rural areas during those troubled times. For me personally, writing this book has been a huge emotional journey.

Robert Lowell once remarked, "When Elizabeth Bishop's letters are published (as they will be), she will be recognized as not only one of the best, but one of the most prolific writers of our century." One Art is the magificent confirmation of Lowell's prediction. From several thousand letters, written by Bishop over fifty years—from 1928, when she was seventeen, to the day of her death, in Boston in 1979—Robert Giroux, the poet's longtime friend and editor, has selected over five hundred missives for this volume. In a way, the letters comprise Bishop's autobiography, and Giroux has greatly enhanced them with his own detailed, candid, and highly informative introduction. One Art takes us behind Bishop's formal sophistication and reserve, fully displaying the gift for friendship, the striving for perfection, and the passionate, questing, rigorous spirit that made her a great artist.
