In 2009 Allyson Reedy broke the chain. She stopped eating meals, snacks and goodies from the chain restaurants that line America’s streets and dominate our stomachs. Her food memoir, Breaking the Chain: How I Banned Chain Restaurants From My Diet And Went From Full To Fulfilled, chronicles her year-long experience as she sought out local alternatives to the food we’ve come to rely upon. Breaking the Chain is Fast Food Nation (Eric Schlosser) told from Carrie Bradshaw’s point of view (if she loved manicotti as much as Manolos). It’s about passing up ritual office breakfasts of bagels and donuts. It means having awkward conversations and waiting longer for food. It involves breaking social customs and inconveniencing friends. It necessitates supporting your neighbors and local community. It also means discovering new favorite foods, saving money and (for Allyson) losing weight. Breaking the Chain began with Allyson wanting to eat better tasting, more adventurous food. After watching friends, family and strangers eat unsatisfactory meal after meal at chain restaurants and get fatter as a result, she wondered how we could break this chain of mediocrity, obesity and commercialism. By giving up corporate-controlled meals, she figured she could achieve her goal of eating the most delicious possible food and maybe even learn something about her eating habits along the way. The experiment turned into so much more than tasty food. Somehow, eating guilt-free turned into the world’s easiest weight loss method. During the worst economic downturn of our lifetime, it became a means of keeping community restaurants in business – and neighbors employed. It’s possible Allyson reduced her carbon footprint by half a step and increased her life by a few years. She unwittingly became social commentary and got in a battle with The Man. In other words, it got interesting.

To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven. (Eccl. 3:1) As a believer, you must know when to worship and whe it is time to warfare. Remember, "...the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds." Your worship is one such weapon. You will agree that there is a time in your life when you must transition from worship to Warfare. Your worship can be considered one of the pre-requisites to gaining access and favor into the King's presence. The greater the intensity of your worship the more he empowers you, the believer, to defeat the enemy and overcome every obstacle in your life.

When we met, Sam shared his own story with me and explained his growing passion to help other Soldiers suffering from post-traumatic stress. I encouraged him to expand his efforts, and we kept in touch after he retired. He shared with me the feedback he received from Soldiers and their families after they had heard his presentations, and he gave me a copy of his first book, Changing the Military Culture of Silence. I could only be impressed as he carried his message across the country. George W. Casey General, US Army (Ret) Former Army Chief of Staff With our veterans committing suicide at an epidemic rate of 22 suicides per day, the chains of stigma must be broken. This book is a reflection of Sam Rhodess personal experiences; he wears the proverbial tee-shirt. One doesnt experience life without experiencing life-changing events. Its how one handles those changes that counts. This book addresses ways to handle those changes to effect a positive outcome. Charles T. Jones Colonel, KYARNG Deputy Chief of Staff Personnel CSM Rhodes carried the hidden wounds of three combat tours inside him when he returned to Fort Benning to serve as the CSM of the Infantry School Training Brigade. After much soul-searching and anguish, he finally realized and publicly acknowledged that he suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In doing so, he realized that part of his healing needed to include a concerted effort on his part to give back to the extended family he had come to know so well, his fellow Soldiers and their families, and to confront the issues plaguing him.

Ronald L. Godbee, Sr. calls it “the book that will liberate you and activate you to live from the position that Christ established for you on the cross.” While many think that the difference between poverty and wealth is defined by the car one drives, the size of the house one lives in and the amount of money in one’s bank account, the truth of the matter is those things are results—or lack thereof—not definitions. In this candid debut book, Breaking the Chains of Poverty: The Secret to Having a Wealthy, Healthy and Wholesome Life, author Demetrius Sandridge helps readers recognize those moments God affords us the opportunity to prosper and come up higher in every aspect of our lives—and how we can maximize those opportunities. Chronicling his story from rags to riches, and riches back to rags, Sandridge ignites a sense of excitement and urgency—which catapults readers out of a poverty mindset into a millionaire mentality with every turn of the page. In this book, you will be challenged to: Transform your mindset to that of a millionaire Learn to use money as a tool, not a motivator of dreams and goals Apply simplistic, practical approaches to go from your current reality to dream fulfillment How to apply action to your faith, and faith to your actions Encourage others to adopt your new way of thinking And more! "Wow, very powerful my friend...Congratulations” -Chris C. Klebba “Read this book, and I guarantee wisdom will come alive in you!” -Pastor Eddie Williams “This book is a fundamental treatise that empowers the reader to understand that though life, at times, may seem intractable and untenable, it can also be liberating and instructive.” -Bishop Edgar L. Vann, II “This book taps into millions of people's minds, souls and spirits like none other!” -Mary Jackson
