“What’s one more little white lie?” There's only one thing that pretty, popular TV reporter Nadia Velasquez is missing: her memory from before the explosion that killed everyone else in the room, including the President of Nigeria. But from the moment she meets FBI agent Jon Daniels, all hell breaks loose. Friends turn into deadly enemies overnight, and no one can be truly trusted. When Jon and Nadia investigate further, they discover the living terror that is the truth behind Nadia's existence, a truth that could mean the death of millions.
Once married, the Bible says, two should become one; I on the other hand quickly learned saying "I DO' doesn't make two people one. For better or worse and for richer or poorer, truly became very significant to me; as those words of our marriage vows, that we exchanged on that faithful September day, began to manifest themselves in our lives day by day. Through every trial and obstacle, I found myself learning lessons that would have me putting pen to paper journaling my way to forgiveness, to freedom, to submission and ultimately to being a better servant to God and a better wife to my husband. This would be no easy task, as I cried many tears of frustration and doubt but finally coming to the point of choice. Yes Ladies, choice is the one thing we all have and the choice to change is a decision we must all make in our lives to become better women to ourselves and better wives to our husbands. I had to put a mirror in front of my face. Not just any mirror but one that would see through my Mac make-up and my pretty Sephora lipstick. One that would see me for who I truly was. I found that the "wife" I saw was not the wife I wanted to be nor the wife God called me to be. So I decided to change. Change brought me to the end of myself and to the beginning of the God in me. Change is where After The Vows begins.

The journey to becoming an exemplary engineering educator is one that is rarely simple and straightforward. Simply being exposed to active learning strategies or innovative pedagogies rarely leads to a transformation of one's own teaching. In this book, we present a collection of stories from exemplary engineering educators that are told in their own voices. These stories are shared to enable readers to immerse themselves in first-person recollections of transformation, involving engineering educators who changed their teaching strategies from the ways that they were taught as engineering undergraduate students to ways that more effectively fostered a conducive learning atmosphere for all students. It is our hope that providing stories of successful engineering educators might stimulate thoughtful and productive self-reflection on ways that we can each change our own teaching. These stories are not simple, linear stories of transformation. Instead, they highlight the complexities and nuances inherent to transforming the way that engineering faculty teach. Through our strategy of narrative storytelling, we hope to inspire future and current engineering educators to embark on their own journeys of teaching transformations. We conclude the book with some lessons that we learned during our readings of these stories, and invite readers to extract lessons of their own.
