Chosen Forever

A Memoir

Chosen Forever

The New York Times–bestselling author of Chosen by a Horse shares tales of both hardship and success—and her unexpected love story. “Richards reflects on how rich life becomes when one travels her own best path. Orphaned early in life, Richards struggled to connect with the world until a horse named Lay Me Down taught her how to trust another creature and to love deeply. These hard-learned lessons became her emotional bedrock. As she chronicles her travels across the country to promote her very successful Chosen by a Horse, she is stoically honest about her battles with anxiety and alcoholism. Book tours are far from glamorous, and Richards allows her readers a rare glimpse into what goes through the mind of a nervous author as she wipes sweaty palms on her black trousers on the way to the podium to read. But she does meet her future husband, Dennis Stock, along the way. A talented photojournalist, he gently and determinedly woos her, believing that fate brought them together. Richards writes more courageously than she perhaps realizes, and each page of this uplifting book will touch a chord in everyone who enjoyed her first book.” —Booklist “Far better than a book tour chronicle has any right to be . . . While her observations about later-in-life love are spot-on, the heart of Richards’ book is how she comes to accept herself as a worthwhile author, despite crushingly low self-esteem.” —Publishers Weekly “Her descriptions of her pets will make any animal lover smile. And for anyone who thinks they’re too old, too damaged or too afraid to take a risk and enter in a relationship with someone, this book is a breath of fresh air.” —Curled Up with a Good Book

Forever Young

Gateway to Forever (Book One)

Forever Young

What it takes to save the world from extinction. 200 years from now, the world, in the grip of global warming, is eerily like ours, only much worse. The ultra-rich, a.k.a. the One Percenters, live in protected areas while the rest of humanity faces pollution, plagues and early death. The One Percenters are the only ones who can afford all the advances of technology, in particular the exclusive Age Prevention Program (APP) that lets them live their whole life span looking "forever young" till the day they drop dead. Three friends struggling for survival, Lizzie, a young California golf champion, Jamie, an investigative journalist for the World and US Post and Alice, a lovely Swiss nurse, try to enter the APP. Meanwhile Lizzie's uncle, a determined and ruthless 99 Percenter retired from the military, lurks around, hell-bent on carving a place for himself in the APP. Only two options are open to escape extinction: one, fly to another planet a thousand light years away, pristine and green much like Earth before industrialization - but the so-called “Immortality Trip” is reserved to One Percenters; the other, retreat to Antarctica, the last virgin continent - but it is in the hands of Gary Trude XIII, a Hitlerian-style autocrat. Can Lizzie, Jamie and Alice escape from Gary Trude and join the Immortality Trip? NOTE TO THE READER: This book follows the model of serialized novels and is digitally published in four separate parts, each self-standing. It is however preferable to read them in order and the present book is an omnibus edition that includes all four parts. PART ONE, "Gateway to Forever", explores the costly APP and what it means to belong to it...or remain outside.

Christians for Christ

Inspired by the Holy Spirit

Christians for Christ

CHRISTIANS FOR CHRIST is a collection of personal spiritual musings . Each small section is essentially Independent. The text may be absorbed from cover to cover or by simply dipping in and out of separate sections. Within the text various entries refer to - JESUS CHRIST MARY THE MOTHER OF JESUS ST. MARCELLIN CHAMPAGNAT ST. MARY MACKILLOP CHRISTIAN EDUCATION OF YOUTH THE CHURCH INSTITUTION CHRISTIAN APPROACH TO LIFE and CHRISTIAN UNITY . These sections are not independently documented. The thinking behind this and the lack of punctuation is to me a reflection of the nature of personal spirituality which is very much a living organism constantly growing and always multi-faceted and integrated with the complexities of the Christian individual living life here on earth along with the very many other Christians. I hope this part of my own spiritual journey documented with the strong influence of the Holy Spirit is helpful to readers particularly with respect to our personal relationship with Jesus Christ. This is dedicated to my mother Elisabeth who passed away January 25 2012. Jim Timmermans Cert. Ed. Dip. Tch. Grad. Dip. R.Ed. M.Ed. (JCU). Jan. 2012. Brisbane. QLD.

1 Enoch 91-108

1 Enoch 91-108

The volume is a commentary on 1 Enoch chapters 91 108 that begins with the Ethiopic text tradition but also takes the Greek and Aramaic (Dead Sea Scrolls) evidence into account. This section of 1 Enoch, most of which contains material from documents composed during the 2nd century BCE, provides a window into the early stages of the reception of the earliest Enoch tradition as it was being negotiated in relation to elitist religious opponents and in relation to other Jewish traditions that were flourishing at the time.
