by Gerry BairdFor many years I struggled to find real, lasting joy. Whenever I achieved a goal that I believed would bring me happiness I would find that the happiness I sought had moved somewhere else: to the next job, the next college degree, the next completed project, the next success. Never the current one. It was a discouraging way to live, and my dissatisfaction fueled a desire for change. Through books, mentors, good friends and spiritual guidance I learned how to transform my beliefs and thoughts and... more
by Brian JaegerGood satire is hard to find. It's even harder to write.

While most of the book is written as news articles, you will also find interviews with God and Satan, a sermon, and several opi... more

by Jess FultonWhen we think about miracles, we think in terms of unexplainable by science or nature. But what if miracles were something that did not need an explanation? What if miracles could occur by just allowing them to happen? What if every minute of every day miracles were happening all around us? Perhaps a miracle is just a simple event uninterrupted by humanity. Faith should have died that cold, snowy night in November. But instead, a miracle happened. However, this gift of life, like most gifts ... more
by jon JacobsAlas, I am so far from perfection that I am often addled. I am at times simply nasty. Not humble, not kind, not gracious, simply…nasty. How I would genuinely like to be loving, and interested, and truly praying for others’ best. That is my life’s adventure. That is my life’s pursuit. To be the greatest I can be, the most beautiful and meaningful creature God made me to be. To throw away all those rags of pettiness, those valleys of remorse and sadness. This all lead me to meditation on the One w... more
