  • Conspiracy of Grace: A Wild Tale of Transformation

    by Robbi Cary and Dale Fiegland
    Struggling and persistently fighting against family put-downs and abuse of every kind, turned Dale Fiegland into a gun-toting, knife-wielding Mafia runner addicted to alcohol and drugs-the kind of man God loves to get ahold of and change. When Dale finally stopped fighting God and asked Him for help, miraculous events followed that can only be called a /Users/StressFreeKids2/DesktopConspiracy of Grace. This winsome tale, touched with humor, is shared in plainspoken style by a pastor/counselor un... more
  • Sockfoot Soldier

    by Cosette Haugen
    Fresh out of college, Cosette Haugen lands herself in an adult psychiatric ward.

  • LABELED: Ward of the State

    by Kenisha E. Anthony

    An abandoned child of drug-addicted parents and Florida’s broken child-welfare system, Kenisha E. Anthony was left to wonder if anyone would ever want her. As a young girl, desperate for love and belonging, she bounced from one unstable home to the next, packing only resentment, abandonment, and heartbreak to take with her. Still, Kenisha found her way, ultimately breaking barriers and shattering statistics. Against advice to “just get a GED,” she earned both an undergraduat... more

  • The Good Girls of Al Noor

    by Linda Keteyian

No need to go straight into a panic, eleven-year-old Mariam S. will affirm your efforts to Miss Shaima, the social worker and Maha’s ninth-grade sister, both of whom wield equal power. Your Arabic doesn’t need to be great, probably better if it’s not, you don’t really want to know what the girls are shouting at you. This is a grade six classroom in Abu Dhabi, and we... more
  • Love, Unpacked

    by Andi Franklin

    How many times have you returned from a life-changing trip only to leave novelty keychains and unsent postcards in your suitcase until the next adventure? Suddenly your carry-on is so full that you’ve got to use your expansion zipper to cram an extra seventeen pairs of underwear for your 3-day cruise. In the same way that we let souvenirs from our last trip take up valuable space in our bag, we rehash our past and let it keep us from our most basic human need—to g... more

  • Miracles Of Kingman Prison

    by Chaplain Paul Vescio
    Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. The Miracles of Kingman State Prison is my personal testimony of the incredible workings of God that I personally witnessed while I was an inmate at Kingman State Prison in Kingman Arizona from 2008 to 2010. The greatest miracle of all was the countless number of inmates who gave their lives to Christ while I was there. It is therefore my solemn prayer that this book will help lead many lost souls to Ch... more

  • Riding Soul-O

    by Debi Tolbert Duggar
    In 2007 I was 52-years-old; I was facing an empty nest, an empty occupation, an empty bank account, a quantifiably empty, love life, and a bankrupt ideology of what comprised my purpose in life. If Maslow’s Theory was correct, I was still a long way from the Pinnacle of his triangular reference of Life Stages - Self Actualization. I was soul sick; I was left wondering, “Is this all there is?” I arrived at this point in my journey and realized I was again alone on the Life Road, and my role as ... more

The City of Scottsdale, Arizona had embarked on the "untested" financing approach to take advantage of tax incentives that arrived with the presidency of Ronald Reagan. Because it was the first of its kind, and the water industry saw many more to c... more
