  • We All Make Decisions: Updated and Corrected Version of This is Me

    by Gary Wilson

    "From birth to a car accident, to recovery and back to work! Now, Embracing the Graces and Miracles with this thing called LIFE!"

    I am writing this book for several reasons:

    1) My shrink said, "When you get moody, write down your thoughts."

    2) From what I have been told, I have had a busy life. Not crappy, but not fantastic.

    3) I thought I would share it with others to show people that there are many different folks out there.

  • Turning Inside Out

    by Emily Newberry
    In this book I use parts of my life story to illustrate what I believe is an important principle. That what spiritual and moral principles guide you is as important as what you say and do as you work to make the world a better place. The book invites the reader into a conversation, most importantly with themselves: •\tWhat is the outcome or impact of what I say and do? •\tAm I acting in ways that reflect the better world I hope to participate in creating, or am I acting in ways that reflect... more
