A Mile In My Shoes is the testimony of a courageous and determined woman who has been faced with a lot of hurt and pain in her life. The beginning of the book shows the life and relationship she has with her biological mother who had an addiction to drugs and abused her mentally, physically, and emotionally. The book is also a testimony that no matter what one has gone through or is going through, with faith and determination, it can indeed be overcome. This story is told with the intention of helping some, saving others, and freeing people from bondage. It starts with her being a victim and ends with GOD getting the victory. By putting "you" in the story, it allows you (the reader) to feel the words coming off the page. While the physical, mental, and emotional abuse may at times appear to be a little hard to stomach, it is nevertheless a true testimony.
This book is a realistic view of trying to get children to clean up their act when it comes to hygiene. It’s not polished and not fake, but it gets the point across to kids that make them listen in a lighthearted way to keep them clean. This is a funny book to read and to help kids know a little more. It’s funny but not funny when you get a health problem. It’s funny but not funny when you are afraid. It’s funny but not funny when it hurts. It’s funny but not funny when a doctor is needed. Educating kids on cleaning our bodies is something that we take for granted. We teach our kids every day. We forget to reteach because we think they got it drilled into their brain. In reality, as the experts would say, children’s brains are like sponges. That’s right. They go right back to their original, main form—the untaught, if not retaught, form or the form of youthfulness. So if you don’t teach, reteach, and reteach again, they forget. So teach kids about our bodies that need to be kept clean so it doesn’t rot!

This is a true story about the salvation found through accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, the glory of God, and learning the meaning of the Holy Word of God. It is about how I was saved by the Grace of God through His revelation and that the path to eternal salvation is through Jesus. God does not look at our imperfections, but through the perfection of what Jesus has done on Calvary in love, faith, and hope. This message is to all who are struggling with the events of their lives. We all face unpleasant events in our lives from financial problems, marital issues, and children gone astray, and so on. Jesus teaches us our battles are not flesh and blood but are spiritual. Through prayer, hope, and accepting Jesus into our lives, each one of us will experience our own victories. The divine love God has for us will lead us and guide our hearts and souls into the arms of Jesus Christ. Satan will attempt to confuse us. He will try to divide and conquer us. By accepting Jesus Christ, you will always have an ally in the battle, and in the end, Satan will lose. I pray through my faith in Jesus Christ that you will find the answers to all your struggles. I hope and pray that by sharing my personal experiences, the struggles, and battles that I have faced and I am facing to this day, that it will give comfort to know that there is no depth, no height, and no darkness that can keep you from the destiny of God's call in your life.
John Updike’s twentieth novel, like his first, The Poorhouse Fair, takes place in one day, a day that contains much conversation and some rain. The seventy-nine-year-old painter Hope Chafetz, who in the course of her eventful life has been Hope Ouderkirk, Hope McCoy, and Hope Holloway, answers questions put to her by a New York interviewer named Kathryn, and recapitulates, through stories from her career and many marriages, the triumphant, poignant saga of postwar American art. In the evolving relation between the two women, interviewer and subject move in and out of the roles of daughter and mother, therapist and patient, predator and prey, supplicant and idol. The scene is central Vermont; the time, the early spring of 2001.

Still Grounds for a Great Marriage
Author: Chuck Snyder,Barb Snyder
Do women really spend more time in the bathroom? Are men truly more gifted when it comes to handling the remote control? Will women ever understand the intense concentration demanded by Monday Night Football? Chuck and Barb Snyder (who reveal that their only area of compatibility is having the same kids and grandkids) tackle these and other questions in Incompatibility: (Still) Grounds for a Great Marriage, an entertaining, insightful, and sensible primer on marriage for Christian couples. Ten years after their popular original book, they've teamed up again to present new material and elaborate on their original themes. Readers will learn that differences between couples are actually part of God's plan for marriage and should be viewed as assets, not liabilities.
Purgatory, Or? Describes a period in my life when I was trying to determine the differences from being sane or insane and their specific definition that segregate them from each other. Does one intentionally attempt suicide if they are sane? Or? Do people perceive you as insane if you attempt, or actually follow through with it? Do you fear death, or welcome it? The book represents a part of my life that if I could, I would do over, and the regrets that I can not change even with time. As fictional as it may seem, it is a true event that I was unfortunately a big part of through reality, and unconsciousness. The truly disappointing thing for myself,is I still haven’t determined the differences I just keep thinking that tomorrow is another day, And maybe, just maybe, I will find the answer. Or?
