An important anniversary for a special group of people called for something special. They were celebrating the first year of successful operation of a humanitarian organization that had already enhanced the lives of thousands. As founders and Directors of the organization, a cruise seemed an ideal way of combining business and pleasure, and the Caribbean Seas was selected. Prior to boarding in Miami, one of their members and his wife became embroiled in a brutal spat involving strangers. The victim, an attractive but destitute young lady, was beaten by a drunken businessman and Luke Strong observed the attack. He became incensed and took retaliatory action, but more importantly, he and his wife temporarily adopted the victim and invited her on the cruise as their guest. The attacker ended up on the same cruise whereby Luke learned that the abuser was the Executive Director of an Association in which the Strongs were members. He also learned that the guy was crooked, a wife beater, philander and ruthless in his business dealings. Thereupon, the cruise took on an additional purpose - - the exposure of the assailant. The assembled group then devised a clever sting operation that lured the assailant into a trap using greed as bait. The sting also produced further humanitarian efforts that capitalized on the special talents of the abused young lady. A pleasurable time with old friends, making new friends, exposing a devious abuse, coupled with propelling their humanitarian effort forward all combined to make it a Cruise To Remember.

Grace Trumbull’s after work drink with Bradley Hanover, a handsome younger colleague, on a warm summer night turns into an impulsive, intimate encounter. After a few weeks of exhilarating secret dates, Grace—forty-two and divorced—realizes she’s pregnant. For Grace, whose estranged mother refers to her own teenage pregnancy as her biggest mistake, the prospect of parenthood is daunting. She’s just been made vice president of a media relations company and is childfree by choice. Still, something deeper than her fear makes her want to keep the baby. She knows she can be a better, more capable parent than her mother was to her. As months pass and seasons change, Grace questions her decision to include Bradley in her plans.

Author: Francine Rivers
A New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller “This character-driven romance will enthrall [Rivers’s] many fans.” —Library Journal The New York Times bestselling author of Redeeming Love returns to her romance roots with this unexpected and redemptive love story, a probing tale that reminds us that mercy can shape even the most broken among us into an imperfect yet stunning masterpiece. A successful LA artist, Roman Velasco appears to have everything he could possibly want—money, women, fame. Only Grace Moore, his reluctant, newly hired personal assistant, knows how little he truly has. The demons of Roman’s past seem to echo through the halls of his empty mansion and out across his breathtaking Topanga Canyon view. But Grace doesn’t know how her boss secretly wrestles with those demons: by tagging buildings as the Bird, a notorious but unidentified graffiti artist—an alter ego that could destroy his career and land him in prison. Like Roman, Grace is wrestling with ghosts and secrets of her own. After a disastrous marriage threw her life completely off course, she vowed never to let love steal her dreams again. But as she gets to know the enigmatic man behind the reputation, it’s as if the jagged pieces of both of their pasts slowly begin to fit together . . . until something so unexpected happens that it changes the course of their relationship—and both their lives—forever. “Rivers deftly threads Roman’s and Grace’s lives together as they tiptoe around their emotional scars, eventually shifting into a dance of tentative steps toward a love neither can resist. Fans of Christian romance will delight in this tale of salvation through love.” —Kirkus Reviews “Richly detailed characters with traumatic pasts are woven together with biblical truths and redemptive themes… This is an amazing, beautifully written tale to be savored and pondered and shared with others.” —Romantic Times “Readers will marvel at Rivers’s storytelling arc encompassing the reconciliation of gritty past misdeeds and the work in progress of a life of forgiveness.” —Booklist “Fans of Francine Rivers will eagerly devour The Masterpiece and find exactly what they are looking for: a beautifully written story of faith, romance, and the power that true freedom can bring.” —Bookreporter.com
Let God take your mess and exchange it for His perfection. God isn't looking for righteous people. God makes people righteous. May this book help you discover the love God has for you.
Author: Eddie Snipes
When people find themselves in a difficult place in life, it's easy to feel hopeless. If we are suffering the consequences of bad choices, it's easy to believe that God is shaking an angry finger and saying, "You made your bed, now lie in it." People will say this, but God uses our mistakes to reveal His grace. The sins we believe are driving us away from God are actually driving us to Him. Then God stands with the promise that when our sins and failures abound, His grace much more abounds. God delights in turning the ashes of our failure into the beauty of His love. What appears to be the pit of sin today will become the trophy of His grace tomorrow - if we put our trust in Him. Let God take your mess and exchange it for His perfection. God isn't looking for righteous people. God makes people righteous. May this book help you discover the love God has for you.

Drawing from a wealth of material produced over the course of more than thirty years, Frank A. Little’s latest book: Little Notes on Autumn Leaves -- a Collection of New and Selected Poems and Quotes, displays the remarkable range of his Life-Learned “Little” notes based on his innate observation of the world around him. The introduction is beautifully written, but doesn’t do justice to the powerful and unexpected emotions that are provoked by the remainder of this written art. Little’s new book opens with quotes and poems from 2008 forward; each one reflecting on, and is inspired by, his life-altering incidental diagnosis of gastric cancer and his formidable unsuspecting follow-on treatment. Previously selected quotes and poems were chosen for their motivational impact on the author himself . . . surviving the seemingly unsurvivable, doing the undoable. Little’s poems and quotes reflect the profound impact of his life’s observations. His written words captivate you . . . as they stimulate your innermost thought. Little Notes on Autumn Leaves reads like an elegant and sophisticated runway show where a seasoned fashion designer has finally shared his dearest and most precious garments in an artistic, cohesive expression of love for life’s cycle of changes and renewals. Quietly Powerful! This is Frank A. Little at his best.

Dr. Claude Poncelet calls this “the shaman within.” In his visionary new book, this scientist and shamanic teacher offers a compendium of practices and wisdom for connecting to the power of the spiritual forces in our lives. Filled with accessible instruction, insights from a lifetime of deep inquiry, and guidance for transformative journeys into non-ordinary reality, The Shaman Within explores: Modern shamanism—an ever-changing practice that welcomes both scientific discoveries and our personal experience Shapeshifting—a powerful method for building empathy, gathering insight, and experiencing our fundamental relation to every part of reality Combining indigenous wisdom and contemporary physics to revolutionize your understanding of time, space, and your authentic self Spiritual adventures to unexpected places—from the edge of the cosmos to the subatomic realm Using shamanism to enhance your work and family life, reveal novel solutions to life challenges, heal the environment, and more “As both scientist and shamanic practitioner, I see no inconsistency between science and spiritual knowledge,” says Dr. Poncelet. “In fact, when shamanism and science inform each other, we gain a far greater access to the wonder and possibility of reality.” In The Shaman Within, this extraordinary teacher invites you to discover the 21st-century evolution of shamanic practice—one that will delight you, empower you, and open your eyes to new dimensions of our strange and marvelous universe.

Perhaps you’ve had one of those moments when everything, quite unexpectedly, simply falls into place; or, when you’ve been puzzling over an impossible question and—pow!—the answer suddenly arises, seemingly out of nowhere. These and other such experiences are not caused by our efforts. They are moments of grace, the gift dimension of life. Grace is generally associated with religion, but, as Dave Richo shows, you don’t need to be religious to notice—and benefit from—this help from outside yourself that’s being offered to you in every moment. Dave provides teachings and helpful practices that show us how to open our eyes to the sources of grace everywhere and in everyone. When we open ourselves to grace, we begin to see it work wonders in our lives—and we become conduits of its power to others.
