Would destiny be enough to bring him back?
At ten years old, Chris didn't have good looks, a caring family, or a bright future. But what he did have for three years was the love of Danielle, his beautiful neighbor on Fairhaven Street who showed him a glimpse of a life he desperately wanted.
To escape his abusive father, Chris was forced to move out of state with his mother to the icy hills of Michigan. All he could leave Danielle with was half of a heart-shaped pendant and a promise that he would one day return for her. To have any chance of getting her back, he had to end over one hundred years of abuse in his family, something his family claimed he was destined to carry on. All he had to keep going over the years was his half of the pendant, tarnished from his refusal to take it off.
Destiny Lives on Fairhaven Street is a touching memoir from author C.J. Hudson of his eight-year journey of preparation t ...

Christian nonfiction exploring the biblical details of God's prophetic calendar, Passover, Easter, the Mosaic Law vs. the Covenant of Grace, events surrounding the Crucifixion Week, and the Resurrection of Jesus. As Jesus exhaled His last breath, the Temple Veil was violently ripped apart by God to allow everyone access into the Holy of Holies through Christ's blood. After three days in a cold, dark grave, Jesus resurrected triumphantly over death. Most Christians are aware of the basics, but did you know all of these events were meticulously detailed in O.T. analogies, including the exact dates of Jesus' death and resurrection? Jesus Unveiled reveals * Why creation's calendar predicted Adam's fall and had to be reset before Christ's incarnation * What Noah's Ark landing on Mt. Ararat has to do with the resurrection * How Judas's betrayal was foreshadowed in the Book of Esther to the exact day * Why Pharaoh's army drowned at sunrise * How the first and last Passover breads reveal the covenants of Law and Grace, and much more... Like a beautiful Monet, appreciate the finer portrait of Jesus by drawing nearer to explore the tiny brushstrokes of our Father's love painted over centuries that finally reveal Jesus Unveiled.
The 2008 recession hits. The US economy goes belly-up and sentences a young generation to wayward lives. With nothing to lose, Lance Pototschnik and his best friend, Jackson Greenly, decide to go for their artist dreams. Lance begins a grassroots initiative to sell an original screenplay to Hollywood. He lives out of a rental car and travels the country filming strangers' street auditions, hoping to generate enough interest on social media to dragoon a production deal. Jackson goes to art school, where he is inspired to make the perfect painting: one with the power to shoot a person dead. Hollywood Ending is a shotgun-seat view of the awkward, hilarious places dreams can lead us. But this book is so much more than a laugh-out-loud ride beside the author. Pototschnik is a self-aware witness to his own crazy journey, and to the possessory effects dissipated art and media saturation have had on him, and on his dreams. Here, he turns his keen powers of observation on a couple of life’s deepest questions: Why do we think what we think? Why do we want what we want? This is required reading for those who get the ineffable sense that the world is going to hell in a hilarious handbasket.
When it comes to college football, there are fans and there are fanatics. Destined by geography and family tradition to latch onto the Arkansas Razorbacks, Blant Hurt is of the second type. Like most devotees, he was captivated by his love of his team at an early age. But unlike more casual fans, Hurt found himself attaching what some might call “outsize life importance” to the fortunes of the Razorbacks —a team which, like his own life, had a habit of going in directions that he did not foresee. In this remarkably candid, funny, and introspective memoir, Blant Hurt recounts his half-century as the most zealous of college football fans. Beginning with the so-called Game of the Century when he was nine-years old, he tells how this enduring passion has colored his relationships with his family and friends, shaped his romances, and, for better or worse, marked every era of his life—indeed, marked his sense of life itself. A self-described “literary man,” Hurt draws on his love of narrative and storytelling to drill down deep inside himself and examine the soul of a college football fanatic. Not the Seasons I Expected is that rare “sports” book that focuses on the hopes and dreams of the people in the bleachers, rather than the ones on the playing field. As such, it’s sure to speak to delirious/heartbroken fans everywhere.
Unexplained Disappearances. Missing People. Strange sights. Strange sounds: These are the things in the woods that will haunt your dreams.

El Camino de Santiago, also known as The Way, is the fabled path that weaves through French and Spanish countryside for 1,000 miles to its hallowed destination at Santiago de Compostella. Thousands attempt to walk its entirety each year: some succeed, many fail. Keith Foskett thru-hiked the Camino to indulge his love for the outdoors and hiking but it also, unintentionally, filled a void in his life which took him in a completely different direction. Along the way he made friends with fellow pilgrims from all over the world, all travelling for their own different reasons. He was assailed by new experiences and unexpected discoveries - from the pain of blisters and extremes of temperature to encountering kleptomaniacs, fake faith healers and being threatened with arrest in Spain for 'not sleeping'. This is the story of one man's walk, but it speaks to all who see life itself as a journey and are alive to the revelations that an escape to nature can bring. Written with insight, observation and a healthy dose of humour. As this book shows, it is rarely the start and the finish that count, but the journey in between.

I’m not the Gwyneth Paltrow kind of writer. To read this book, you will not have to eradicate all traces of intelligence from that potato of a head, just to try to digest a bunch of new age woo-woo b*llocks. Nope - the sh*t I will share in the following pages really f*cking works, and you don’t need crystals or to be in touch with the spirit of a Native American dream walker to appreciate the difference it’ll make. Maybe a few of them could cause you to briefly question my/your sanity, but don’t all the best experiences in life make you do that? Ok, not all of them. But a few of the REALLY cool ones that also might involve sh*t like ancient ninja swords, velociraptors, V8 engines, copious amounts of alcohol and waking up in a foreign country wearing a clown outfit? Well, THAT kind do, don’t they? We don’t normally think of our brains as a part of the anatomy that needs exercising, as it’s processing sh*t all the time, isn’t it? Discover why that lump of grey goo between your ears needs as much attention as the rest of your anatomy, and how to do it - the easy (and sometimes surreal) way.

And how can you avoid wasting precious time?The book ‘The 4 Foundations of Love’ is based on a fascinating study, in which a great number of successful couples were interviewed for one purpose: to capture the essence of their unique relationship - what makes them keep loving their partner years after they have met, or even love them more. According to an NLP model, these couples share the following 4 crucial foundations: Rareness - the moment of realization that this is our destined partner. Unwritten Agreement - the essence of words used instinctively and their impact on the quality of the relationship. Sacred Bond - the relationship’s sacred element and the couple’s divine connection. Future Dimension - the promise of a mutual future. Hundreds of couples who have implemented this method in their relationships, have claimed that it has restored their sense of confidence and control, created intimacy and power, and elevated their relationship to a unique level of spirituality. Thus, you can reshape your relationship and take to it the next level with joy and ease: without overbearing conversations, without trying to convince your partner, without games, and without waiting for your partner’s cooperation.

"I never thought I would have reason to say to someone, 'Sorry I’m late, it took longer to dismember the goat than originally planned.'" I was twenty-six years old, worked at a well-paid job, rented a fantastic apartment, and enjoyed a large circle of friends. I had everything, except I didn’t. I couldn’t shake the feeling I was missing out on the experience of living. Part guidebook on culture and travel, part journey of self-discovery, this travelogue takes you on a backpacking adventure through Nepal and Thailand and provides a firsthand account of one volunteer’s experience teaching in a Nepali school and living with a devout Brahmin family. Trek with me through the bamboo forests and terraced mountaintops of eastern Nepal, take a wild river-rafting ride in class IV waters, go on an elephant ride and encounter a charging rhinoceros on jungle walks in Chitwan National Park, sea-kayak the surreal waters of Krabi, and snorkel in the Gulf of Thailand.

I hope it inspires you to see these amazing countries for yourself. Included in this book are twenty-five photos of Nepal and Thailand I took during my journey. This ...
This new book is about teensy-weensy firecracker love... love that, when ignited, produces a burst of fireworks and lights up someone’s dark night. It’s about feet-on-the-ground, sky’s-the-limit, life-changing, world-engaging, mustard-seed love that grows from a hunch, an idea, a nudging from above—and then blossoms in the willingness of a heart to act on its sometimes-wobbly faith. Such audacious, underestimated love—like the little engine that could from childhood—just keeps chugging along over “impossible” hills, shrugging off the naysayers, imagining the view from the top. The difference is: this tenacity in the human heart is what turns seeming underdogs and ragamuffins like ourselves into influencers and game-changers, right in our own communities, workplaces, homes . . . or wherever we go in the world. May Pamela Capone’s often-hilarious observations and always-engaging experiences put a little fuel in your tank to help you get up and over, so you can see that all things are indeed possible . . . if you believe that Love can. By day, a self-professed professional unpaid people watcher and evidence gatherer, and by night, an insomniac dot connector, Pamela Capone lives in Southern California with her husband, John. They have two fabulous adult children together, Joey and Cassie, and one phenomenal grandson, Brooks.

The Pacific Crest Trail stretches some 2,650 miles from the Mexican border to Canada. It meanders through the scorching deserts of California, the dramatic Sierra Nevada, the volcanic landscape of Oregon and the vast forests of Washington. Every year scores of hikers attempt to walk its entirety. Four in ten give up in the first month alone and only two in ten will reach Canada. Extremes of heat and cold, the toughness and roughness of the trail and encounters with an assortment of potentially deadly creatures stretch walkers to their absolute limits. It’s a lesson Keith Foskett soon learns the hard way, having to deal with blisters and other physical ailments, as well as his inherent phobia of snakes, spiders, bears, getting dirty and camping in the woods after dark. With the harsh winter looming, he enters into a desperate race against time, facing a dangerous, physical and very real threat to become the last Englishman to complete the greatest long distance hiking trail on Earth.

In my life I have been fortunate enough to experience many unusual and varied things. I have always liked poetry and have tried to capture the range of emotions that everyone lives through. I hope people like my clumsy attempts, but as long as they generate some response in the reader, I feel that my job has been done. "“WHERE LEADS THE ROAD is a collection filled with one man’s thoughts about the world and his experience. While the topics are varied and wide-ranging in WHERE LEADS THE ROAD, what is clear is that William Gordon Mallett has poured his entire life into this collection. It is made up of memories both big and small, snippets of everyday scenes such as the pad of a cats paw are written alongside poetic political commentaries and reflections on global society. For the most part, the poems in the collection ring of nostalgia. IR Verdict: WHERE LEADS THE ROAD, a highly personal and intentionally soothing collection of poems by William Gordon Mallett, is both at its worst and best when rooted in pure nostalgia.” - IndieReader Review

In his 1858 campaign notebook, Abraham Lincoln opens a revealing window onto his antebellum political thinking about emancipation, abolition, and black social and political equality. During the heat of his celebrated contest with Senator Stephen A. Douglas, Lincoln compiled a pocket memorandum book addressing not just slavery but "the substance of all I have ever said about 'negro equality'"—the issue of how blacks might fit into American society once freed. The resulting notebook consists of newspaper clippings that Lincoln selected from his speeches in response to the Kansas-Nebraska Act (1854) and the Dred Scott decision (1857), and from the legendary debates themselves. Lincoln on "Negro Equality" provides a paragraph-by-paragraph commentary on the clippings, considering the content of the notebook within the political climate of the times, and it contrasts Lincoln's views on racial equality as a senatorial candidate for the new Republican Party in 1858 with his actions as Civil War president (1861-1865). Appendices provide the transcribed text of the clippings and Lincoln's handwritten summary of them; a guide to the contemporary sources for Lincoln's selected extracts that are available online; and a brief history of the physical notebook, housed in The Huntington Library.

This book is a summary of this knowledge that outlines the medical, psychological and workplace aspects of stress. It deals with many myths and presents the latest research in an easily understandable way. The book describes when and how stress can be harmful – so-called toxic stress – and summarizes new and old methods of prevention and treatment. Toxic stress may be triggered by both physical and psychosocial trauma. It also describes positive stress, which can be beneficial in both the short and long term. New research has revealed what happens to our brain when we are being subjected to harmful stress. This knowledge presents new ways of treating and preventing stress for the individual, for stress therapists and for society. The book also describes how stress – for good and bad – is an example of the close biological relationship between our minds and our physical bodies. This relationship is not only governed by hormones and inherited animal patterns but is also highly related to social learning, thought and our individual reality.
Born in a California women’s prison in 1963, Laureen Pittman was relinquished for adoption. As a child, Laureen was conditioned to believe that being adopted didn’t matter. So, it didn’t . . . until it did. As with most sealed-records-era adoptions, the truth about Laureen’s birth in a California women’s prison in 1963 was carefully hidden and considered a shameful thing that happened to someone else over fifty years ago. But Laureen would not accept that some people still believed that the past should be hidden and denied in the name of "privacy," or to protect certain individuals from exposure to personal embarrassment, or a truth that would destroy some perfectly crafted life created out of secrecy, lies, and denial. It took nearly fifty years, but Laureen decided to make her own choices about what to do to fill in the blanks about her identity and she made a conscious choice to share her story. Through scraps of information, Laureen stitched together her history – one that started in the psychedelic sixties and ended up in a future where DNA could solve mysteries. She never imagined that spitting into a plastic tube, along with years of painstaking research and the explosion of technology, would reveal the answers to her identity and the rich family legacy shared with her biological father. Laureen’s tale is for anyone who has ever questioned who they are, where they came from, or how they fit in. Her journey to find her truth illustrates the strength and power of our uni ...

When your little one has outgrown that colicky phase, there’s teething. And then your precious baby is suddenly mobile and you frantically run around wondering if there’s anything you’ve forgotten to babyproof. And someday the topic of potty training comes up.

It is better to travel than to arrive. So the saying goes. And Paula DiPerna is a seasoned traveller. Been there. Done that. A modern Marco Polo. But suddenly in 2017 she finds herself in unknown territory. Uncharted waters. Floundering without a map. And where no digital technology can help her. Where is she? She is in flight from her beloved New York. In flight from America. In flight from the chaos of the Presidency of Donald Trump. DiPerna’s is the tale of how a nation sleepwalked into what to many people around the world now see as a political nightmare, starting first in the broken town of Scranton, Pennsylvania, where DiPerna campaigned for Hillary Clinton, hoping against hope. It is a tale of incredulity seen not only through the eyes of an educated, American professional but also through the eyes of taxi drivers, hotel clerks, waitresses and shopkeepers, all wondering what could have happened to the USA. In Cape Town. In Beijing. In Berlin. It is a tale of a world gone crazy. And it begs the question: what do we do now? DiPerna does indeed arrive – with a bump. ‘My journey had played fast and loose with time zones and lounges as I ice-skated along on the surface of each day, dabbling in silly luxuries, all transient. And yet, on the road, I could see even more clearly that resistance to mediocrity and rebuilding of the idea of common good is urgent.’ Paula DiPerna’s incisive Travels in the Time of Trump puts much-needed distance and time between cataclysmic events to ...
Catherine is a dream come true for her parents. Their first born child is their most precious gift. The love and joy they feel for her is obvious to everyone who knows them. When tragedy unexpectedly hits, Catherine's world is turned upside down and the course of her life is forever changed. In this heartbreakingly powerful memoir, Catherine goes back to where it all began. Following the tragic death of one of her parents at the age of three, she is sent to live with an Aunt and Uncle. This is where the cycle of her abuse begins. As she makes her way in the world, the sexual violation she endured at the hands of her uncle shapes her and how she sees herself.

When devastating news about the beloved cousin she loves as a brother comes to the surface, the scars of her past are reopened. The memories of the abuse her uncle put her through come rushing back so powerfully that she is not sure she can survive this time. To save herself Catherine must face once and for all the demons of her past. She bravely exposes her complete self in this gut-wrenching journey of healing as she finally faces the torment she had worked so hard to bury. Scars among Us talks about what many victims are afraid to talk out loud about. There is a taboo of shame deeply woven into the emotions of many victims of rape. This bo ...

Can physics explain the economy? Many people believe that there is a lot of money in the world and that its distribution among people is unjust. Most people also believe that the reason for economic crises is an inherent illness of the system or the result of misguided or even tricky actions that can be avoided. In this book, it is argued that the amount of money in developed countries is zero, the income distribution among people is purely statistical, and that volatility in the economy is inevitable, just like the fluctuation in our mood. Why are very few people so rich and many so poor, and why do CEO’s make so much money? We show that income distribution is the universal distribution that also exists in many other phenomena, e.g., the distribution of voters among parties, the distribution of buyers of books, and the distribution of the number of residents in cities. It also exists in the frequency of digits in data files, the frequency of earthquakes according to their intensity, and many other random phenomena. This easy-to-calculate universal distribution well predicts the economic inequality as reflected in the Gini Index, the relative percentage of the poor, the salaries of CEOs, and the fraction of wealth held by the richest. This book can be understood by everybody! The book is of interest to a wide audience of economists, sociologists, politicians, and the general public alike. It relies on theories from physics and economics, and its contents are based on scientif ...

It was the biggest investment in the history of Morgan Stanley's $100 Billion real estate fund business; it was one of the largest deals in the history of Australian property. In 2007, Morgan Stanley bought Investa Property Trust for more than $6.5 billion. In less than a year, the investment was in trouble. Scott MacDonald, an American CEO with no prior experience in Australia, agreed to meet with the Company and Morgan Stanley executives in Sydney for one week in 2008. He returned home more than five years later after guiding Investa through its perilous journey to survival. The Company moved from crisis to crisis from 2008 through 2012, sometimes avoiding insolvency by hours. The drama of corporate survival is played against the backdrop of the Global Financial Crisis. The story of corporate struggle draws upon Scott MacDonald's personal experiences as chapters alternate between his life growing up and the fight to save Investa. His career includes an amazing range of experiences from fortune telling, street sweeper, and corporate CEO. Using stories and antidotes from every stage of his life, the Investa story is personalized and much more than a business memoir.

On a September morning in 1948 - while a member of the U.S. Olympic team, a Howard University student, and a veteran of World War 2 - Norvel Lee was arrested for taking a seat in the white section of a segregated train in rural Virginia. Thorough research of the facts about Jim Crow laws shows that Norvel Lee's appeal of the case resulted in a landmark civil rights decision. Norvel Lee spent his childhood in a rustic, segregated Black community nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. His father was a day laborer for the railroad while his mother expected her children to get an education and become involved in community affairs. In spite of obstacles such as Virginia's Jim Crow laws, limited schooling opportunities, and a speech impediment, Norvel's life journey led to exceptional accomplishments in the larger world. Among those accomplishments were becoming a member of the 1948 and 1952 U.S. Olympic teams, making history at the 1952 Helsinki Games. Afterward he received several post-graduate degrees. While raising and empowering their family Norvel and his wife then dedicated their lives to educating and mentoring young people and contributing tirelessly to community outreach organizations in the Washington D.C. area. He also served as a senior officer with the U.S. Air Force Reserve. Norvel Lee was truly an unsung hero who deserves recognition as a civil rights leader who made a profound difference in people's lives. Based on true events, NORVEL is a meticulously re ...

People want to believe that when a loved one dies we remain connected through a universal system of love, knowledge and guidance. Paul Lambillion gives us evidence of such connections in his new book, Angels Looking Through. The most remarkable messages in Angels Looking Through come from the many cases of ordinary people Paul shares with us in which he uses the mediumistic abilities he was born with to facilitate conversations that bring greater understanding to the unfinished business left by death—the child who died, the marriage that was never happy but perhaps could have been, or to talk once more with someone much-loved sharing the personal details of what made their relationship precious. Such conversations start a process of healing, alleviation of guilt, or simply bring joy to the heart and confirmation that there is life after death.
Happy childhood, horrors of war and the miraculous rescue of the only child survivor from Obertyn Krystyna Carmi's childhood in Obertyn was full of happy moments. Her childhood was filled with friends, both Polish and Ukrainian, and she attended a Ukrainian school. Krystyna Carmi was gifted with an extraordinary memory, and in this memoir, she vividly recounts the history of her family and her life before, during and after World War II. But her happy childhood did not last long; World War II changed it forever. A girl’s survival in the face of pure evil: loss and persistence against all odds. However, the worst was still ahead for the Jewish community in Obertyn and for Krystyna’s family. After the Germans ordered the Jews to move into the Kołomyja ghetto, Krystyna’s family went to live in the ghetto. People died in the ghetto because of hunger and physical exhaustion; their bodies were collected on a platform placed in the street. These deaths did not escape the attention of the sensitive girl, and she’ll be forever haunted by the faces of those who died. Her parents and her sister did not survive the family’s attempt to escape the ghetto, but despite her loss, Krystyna struggled to stay alive; she was hiding in order to save her life, she faced hunger, thirst, fear for her life. Nevertheless, Providence has chosen for her to live, to be. More than a memoir, The Strange Ways of Providence in my Life, gives the reader a piece of history. The book contains more than 100 photos ...

As a young man I traveled to West Africa in search of my identity. I am a man of color, who was born in England. I visited West Africa in the mid-seventies before that area exploded into violence, and witnessed the displacement of its people. My adventure lasted 18 months, and covered the countries of Algeria, Mali, Burkina Faso (formerly Upper Volta), Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire, Liberia and Sierra Leone. An adventure like this probably couldn’t happen today. The desert has encroached on the south, and poverty has forced the increased migration of peoples from the savannah areas to the coastal countries... The journey I went through represented a coming of age that tested my young manhood. The stories in this book are intended to open people’s eyes to the real Africa. It is my intention to present a story to you, my readers, that will offer you a visceral experience of being with me on the mammy wagons charging through the forests. To have you sitting by my side as we hurtle across the Savannah landscape. To have you feel the suffocating heat in the swamplands of Sierra Leone. To take you to the humanity of the people I encountered on this journey. In so doing, I hope you will connect to and strengthen your own humanity. And perhaps in a small way this story will make all who read it a little more open and human. Such is the first step for all of us in finding ourselves, and some peace in this world today.

Like any infant, you could direct your surroundings to satisfying your desires, which were very clear to you then. However, as the years went by, your connection with this internal magnet has weakened. The Magnet connects readers to the internal, inherent magnet with which every one of us is born and which opens the opportunity for change and realizing one’s dreams. It is a unique way to attract desired reality, opportunities, and wishful “coincidences” into our lives. This book will guide you in your self-transforming work to achieve the reality you desire This method is not magic; it requires working through all four of the echelons of our existence: physical, emotional, mental, and energetic. With methodic practice, which can also be assimilated with unique meditations studied in the course, one is opened step by step to change and success, altering the automatic mode of existence to a conscious and fulfilling life.

No Second Chances is one man`s story, told from his point of view regarding his first-hand experiences in the School of Hard Knocks. If you like thrillers, you`ll probably like this book...
Although it is non-fiction, its style has none of the dry, documentary-type language. It is compelling and entertaining, all while enlightening the reader.
You`ll read about a young, 20-year-old father of an infant girl, who went to prison for robbery, doing nearly 15 years. You'll see his ups and downs - including an escape - as he navigates life in prison. Once he gets out, life outside the prison fences is bitter-sweet. He works on building a stronger bond with his now teenaged daughter, yet life is full of unexpected obstacles and temptation lures him back to living life by the Law of the Gun.
Finally, you`ll discover how far the U.S. justice system has fallen. Dishonest cops, unscrupulous prosecutors, contemptible defense lawyers, and indifferent judges all participate in railroading the author into another prison sentence.
If you`re at all interested in how the American justice system has become more like North Korea's, read this book. You`ll laugh, you may tear up, and if you`re not shocked, it`s only because this topic no longer has anything to teach you.

Throughout recorded history, and before - women have been there. Many have been leaders, innovators, and the foundation for the evolution of modern society as we know it now. Often their stories have been overlooked, diminished, or hijacked to someone else's resume.
This book is a celebration of a few of the female geniuses, artists, innovators, goddesses, and not to be overlooked, villains. If men were there, women were too in the revolutions, discoveries, and progress. Every story deserves recognition in history classes, more than a book and a movie.
This has been an eye-opening adventure, looking forward to sharing it with you.
