From her earliest years with a boozy, accident-prone father and a reluctantly pragmatic mother, Janice Galloway's grew up as a watcher - careful and vigilant. Then her parents' marriage broke up and mother and daughter moved to an attic above a doctor's surgery. When her big sister Cora returned home, with her steady stream of boyfriends, snappy dress sense and matching temper, evasion became a way of life. This is a funny and telling book about the routine dependencies and confusions, hopes and triumphs of childhood; it is also a book about emergence, as, slowly, the beginnings of unsuspected rage pushed the silent girl towards her voice.

Many married people wish their union could be better. Nothing seems to go the way they want or thought it would. There are too many fights and too few compliments; there is not enough respect and too much criticism; and there is not enough intimacy. Marriage certainly is not like a fairytale book. In It’s Not about Me: A Guide to an Amazing Marriage, author and pastor Ken Hinkley helps couples discover why marriages suffer, and he offers ways to improve relationships. Using a host of examples, he takes an in-depth look at intimate relationships before and during a marriage, demonstrating the differences among the attitudes, actions, and consequences of “living for me” in contrast to living for others. Covering a range of topics from dating to trust to careers and children, It’s Not about Me provides insights on how to overcome difficulties in a marriage and shows couples how they can make their marriage look and feel like it was made in heaven.

It is through this shift in thinking that we can truly live an unburdened, happy life.

As a pastor, Michael Allen realized there was a real need for Bible study material directed toward the maturing Christian. There is a wealth of information dealing with salvation and the first baby steps a newborn Christian takes.

This book is for those who truly hunger for a more extensive knowledge of the most high. Do you genuinely want to draw closer to God? Do you want to know him personally and intensely? Then this book is for you. As the world plummets deeper and deeper into the concept of self as the center of all living, this book is an insightful look into the heart of God. If you wholeheartedly desire a greater intimacy with God, this book will provide insights into his character. Do you dare to see God for who he is? Then read this book and immerse yourself in the knowledge of his amazing power, love, and grace.

It can hurt to hear someone tell it like it is. But sometimes you need to get the truth, straight up. And the truth is that it's not about you--it's about God. Maybe you have relied on your own strength for far too long. You haven't been able to count on other people, so you just do your own thing. But God has bigger plans for you. God wants to use you to change the world. Rebecca Osaigbovo, conference speaker and author of Chosen Vessels, shows how black women can stand up to Satan's lies and face tough problems, not in your own strength but by finding God's strength in the midst of your weaknesses. She says this to women who want to be the keys to change in their homes, churches and communities: "If you want things to be different, then stop going your own way and follow God's lead. Lean not on your own understanding, and he'll make your paths straight."
