Bringing Me Back to Me

I figure since I am getting nowhere myself this evening, I should invest in others instead. I begin to pray silently from where I am sat. I don't “feel” God in the prayer, but keep going anyway. I murmur words against any evil that may ...

Bringing Me Back to Me

Born into a Christian cult, Matthew was raised believing Satan is at war with Christians and God is at war with the Gays. Home-schooled with no sex-education, Matthew was terrified to discover he was attracted to men himself. The war had entered his own body. For over ten years, Matthew tried everything to allow his God Side to destroy his Gay Side, culminating with an exorcism at St Thomas Philadelphia in a misguided attempt to remove the “demons associated with homosexuality.” St Thomas Philadelphia church has always denied they performed dangerous exorcisms on gay people to turn them straight. Matthew Drapper throws open the church doors to reveal the scandalous secrets of spiritual abuse hidden behind enticing community, wild worship and devastating promises of miracles.

Bringing You Back to Me

Bringing You Back to Me

The air smelled so fresh and clean. A storm had just passed over with lots of rain as we made our way to a place in the mountains, a place I had planned on visiting for some time now, hoping here I would find what I was looking for-the piece of evidence that would bring you back to me.

Bringing Me Back To HIM

Life without the Lord is a struggle when you try to accomplish things yourself. After many years of doing things my way and the troubles I had run into, I haven't gotten very far in life. All the ups and downs were worse. Giving my all in all to him made it easier to accomplish the things that I have tried to do on my own. My life was incomplete until I have accepted the Lord in my heart and soul.

Bringing Me Back

Noah is not having a good year. His mom is in prison, he's living with his mom's boyfriend—who he's sure is just waiting until his mother's six month sentence is up to kick him out—and he's officially hated by everyone at his middle school, including his former best friend. It's Noah's fault that the entire football program got shut down after last year. One day, Noah notices a young bear at the edge of the woods with her head stuck in a bucket. A bucket that was almost certainly left outside as part of a school fundraiser to bring back the football team. As days go by, the bear is still stuck—she's wasting away and clearly getting weaker, even as she runs from anyone who tries to help. And she's always alone. Though Noah ignores the taunts at school and ignores his mother's phone calls from jail, he can't ignore the bear. Everyone else has written the bear off as a lost cause—just like they have with Noah. He makes it his mission to help her. But rescuing the bear means tackling his past—and present—head-on. Could saving the bear ultimately save Noah, too?

Christmas at Emelia s

This Christmas join the De La Fuentes and McKenzies in Blossom Creek as they celebrate the grand opening of Emelia’s Restaurant. Over twenty years after Levi De La Fuente's parents opened the first Emelia’s, Levi and his cousin Ryan are getting ready to open a second location. Emma De La Fuente manages the first Emelia’s in Essex, Vermont for her parents. She’s in town to assist her brother and cousin in getting the new restaurant ready for its grand opening. However, she didn’t plan on the strong attraction she feels toward the town Sheriff. The man with his sweet words and heated looks has managed to derail her plans on returning home. While his sister is distracted, Levi finds himself in need of rescuing from a rather embarrassing situation. Luckily for him, Vivien Taylor, owner of Temptations, Blossom Creek’s handmade chocolate store, appears just at the right time. If only he didn’t crave the sweet woman, then maybe, this situation wouldn’t be so awkward. Blossom Creek just might be warm enough to melt the snow this holiday season.

A Concordance to the Poems of Robert Browning


Too Many Mothers

Nanny was bringing the dirty plates in. I knew from her tone that my time in the scullery was over. She brought me back in by the shoulders and placed me on her lap. 'Your mum wants me to take you back home on Sunday.

Too Many Mothers

'I was born in a sideboard.' So begins Roberta Taylor's bittersweet memoir of her early years, a book that proves beyond doubt that real life is stranger than any soap opera. It's Boxing Day, 1956 in East London, and it's freezing, inside and out. Roberta, aged eight, sits in the kitchen in her overcoat, determined to make herself invisible, watching the shenanigans of the grown-ups. Her granny, Mary, reigns over the house with an iron will and an eye to the main chance. Roberta's cousin is on her hands and knees at the parlour grate, trying to retrieve grandad's dentures from the coals, dragging her coat in the dust. It's too cold to hang it up by the front door. Besides, Granny Mary makes no exceptions when it comes to the occasional light thieving. Aunt Doll learns that the hard way. Not even a padlock kept Mary from stealing Doll's wedding presents, although nobody can understand how she got the back off the wardrobe without Doll noticing. Too Many Mothers is a portrait of an embattled extended family at war with itself and the outside world. From petty crime to pet monkeys, tender romance to shameless emotional blackmail, illegitimacy, adoption and even murder, Roberta Taylor has written a kaleidoscopic and unforgettable memoir of her family and her early life.

Paris I Love You but You re Bringing Me Down

ning to appeal to me. Back in New York, I'd always hated San Francisco. Most of the San Franciscans I knew were too contented, devoting their lives to their lifestyles; they all had terrific accessories and zero self-doubt.

Paris  I Love You but You re Bringing Me Down

A self-described Francophile from when he was little, Rosecrans Baldwin always dreamed of living in Paris—drinking le café, eating les croissants, walking in les jardins—so when an opportunity presented itself to work for an advertising agency in Paris, he couldn't turn it down. Despite the fact that he had no experience in advertising. And despite the fact that he barely spoke French. After an unimaginable amount of red tape and bureaucracy, Rosecrans and his wife packed up their Brooklyn apartment and left the Big Apple for the City of Light. But when they arrived, things were not eactly what Rosecrans remembered from a family vacation when he was nine years old. Paris, I Love You but You're Bringing Me Down is a nimble comic account of observing the French capital from the inside out. It is an exploration of the Paris of Sarkozy, text-message romances, smoking bans, and a McDonald's beneath the Louvre—the story of an American who arrives loving Paris all out of proportion, but finds life there to be completely unlike what he expected. Over eighteen months, Rosecrans must rely on his dogged American optimism to get him through some very unromantic situations—at work (writing booklets on how to breast-feed, raise, and nurture children), at home (trying to finish writing his first novel in an apartment surrounded on all sides by construction workers), and at every confusing French dinner party in between. An offbeat update to the expat canon, Paris, I Love You is a book about a young man finding his preconceptions replaced by the oddities of a vigorous, nervy city—which is just what he needs to fall in love with Paris for the second time.

And just as before, the gods do not play fairly with those who stand in their way.

Betrayed

there it was, glaring back at me. I don't know if it's because he'd never lied to me or because I'd always felt I could trust him with my life. ... “More than most know,” Caius said, bringing me back to reality.

Betrayed

I was never supposed to go to the Between. I was never supposed to fall in love with Caius. And yet, I’ve done both. Since stepping through that portal, I’ve done a lot of things I never thought I would. Like coming face-to-face with a god. Or encountering the one person in all the worlds I didn’t want to meet. Or having a fairy floor me with just a few words and realizing things are a lot more complicated than just stopping the Lost. Everything is changing, secrets are revealed, and something that shouldn’t even be possible has become reality. I never imagined any of this could happen. My imagination was clearly lacking.

Panzers on the Vistula

I still do not know today how long I had listened and dreamt when the colonel clapped me on the shoulder, bringing me back to reality. His face was as if enlightened. We climbed into the APC without saying a word.

Panzers on the Vistula

This WWII memoir of a Nazi officer is one of the most revealing firsthand accounts of the German retreat on the Eastern Front. A second lieutenant of the 4th Panzer division, Hans Schäufler commanded a Jagdpanther tank destroyer in rearguard actions against the Red Army in East Prussia in 1945. Then, as an infantryman, he took part in the doomed defense of Danzig before escaping across the Baltic in a small boat. His personal story offers a rare glimpse into the chaos and suffering endured by tens thousands of soldiers and civilians during the collapse of the Third Reich in the east. Along with vivid descriptions of the appalling conditions in Danzig and the fear and panic that gripped the city, Schäufler’s account provides valuable insight into the German army’s tactics as they fell back before the Soviet advance. While acute shortages of men, equipment, ammunition and fuel crippled the defense, the soldiers went on fighting for a lost cause in the face of certain defeat.“/DIV>

Half Blood The First Covenant Novel

I bent, bringing my hand back to my chest. I didn't think it would hurtthat much. Even worse was the fact I'd barely made an impact on him. He turned back to me as if I hadn't just punched him in the face and frowned.

Half Blood  The First Covenant Novel

HALF-BLOOD is the unputdownable first book in the acclaimed Covenant series from #1 New York Times bestselling Jennifer L. Armentrout. The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi - pure-bloods - have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals - well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures. Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1: Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem - staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.
