  • When I Grow Up I Want to Be a Chair: A Memoir

    by Ryan Rae Harbuck
    Her story has (not) defined her. From where she sat, her perspective of the world was both quite ordinary and rivetingly extraordinary—from a paralyzing car accident in her teens to traveling overseas on a journey of self-reflection to becoming a mom. Throughout everything she experienced, she fervently believed in following her given path. She wanted to trust its trajectory. She wanted to be sure. Her story is not about a chair. Her story is about her strengths and how they rose... more
  • Cultural Innovation Learning Manual Especially for You

    by Adam Mande

  • When Losses Become Legacies

    by Christy Brunke & Kristina Cowan
    When Losses Become Legacies features nine memoirs–about grief, God, and glory. In these true stories, modern-day saints meet suffering, their Savior, and–sometimes–the supernatural. Sooner or later, we all lose someone we love. Maybe the person closest to us. Maybe early in our lives, or theirs. Loss and grief have immeasurable power to draw us into darkness or deliver us into a higher purpose. For those who follow Christ, loss will, ideally, point us back to the Cross and its redemptive e... more
  • A Ball With No Points

    by Stephen Reddy
    When a group of unheralded boys came together in 1971, not much was expected. Over the next four months they produced “one of the most remarkable Cinderella Stories ever written,” according to one local paper. For decades Westfield, NJ has been the idyllic suburban town known for its distinctive homes along tree-lined streets, its classic downtown area, and for having a school system that was the envy of many neighboring towns. During the ‘60s and ‘70s, the town proudly witnessed the most domin... more

  • Refined

    by Tracie Breaux
    Tracie was fifteen when she ran away from an abusive father. At the end of her first day of freedom, she was running from two men with a rope.

  • Remember Whose Little Girl You Are

    by Ellen Nichols
    Remember Whose Little Girl You Are captures the flavor of the Deep South like no author since Eudora Welty or Flannery O’Connor. Ellen Nichols encapsulates the tenor of small-town Southern life in the fifties and sixties, with its vicissitudes and hilarity. One is captured with her openness and drawn deeply into the dialogue-so much as to, according to one reader, sometimes feel guilty of spying. Read it and see if you want those times back- or are just relieved they’re gone.
  • Reflections in a Paper Moon: Beginning Passage

    by L. A. Espriux
    This book describes experiences growing up in the 1950s rural South. Through personal conflict and ambiguous identity, it is the life of one forced at an early age into an incompatible role that leads to joining the United States Marine Corps, later returning from the jungles of Vietnam a promoted Sergeant and decorated man of war. I remember as a child being told "little boys are made of snips, snails and puppy dog tails". Because of these early conflicts, this author now shares greater visio... more
  • I Am Jess

    by Jessica Fahl
    I kept all of our secrets, avoiding people and situations where I might have to explain his behavior; I just didn’t realize I had done it. I had completely isolated myself and allowed him to create my reality. The embarrassment and shame were too much, but somehow, those feelings went away easily if I didn’t acknowledge them out loud. They could be washed away as if he didn’t really mean it that way or that I was reading too much into things, as he often told me. I Am Jess is my story about fal... more

    by Mike Mulhern

Not all his experiences were gloriously wonderful, but he remained steadfast in his mission, realizing that if he condemned the entire black race for the dastardly deeds of the worst of them, he had to accept blame for the actions of the worst of th... more
