This book is “co-authored” by eighteen dogs, all of whom have lived with the author at one time or another. The dogs lend a unique perspective into their behaviors, adventures, illnesses, accidents and humorus episodes. Animal lovers will appreciate their mindset and the knowledge that all of their stories are true. The “chorus” in this book touts the theme of helping animals in need to achieve safe and loving homes. In direct correlation to this endeavor, it has been necessary to adjust pricing of this book higher than normal in order to accommodate productions expenses and have funds left over to donate to some of the many rescue groups and no-kill shelters. Your understanding is greatly appreciated. To begin with, donations will be made to these local and national groups: Horse Creek Wildlife Foundation (no-kill preserve), The Street Dog Foundation (a rescue group), The Mid-South Spay and Neuter Clinic (a low-cost facility), the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Rachel Ray’s Rescue.

Christine Gail Garcia is a retired schoolteacher. Word’s By God’s Grace is her first book. The topics for the poems and songs in this book came from the trials and tribulations experienced in living. The words in this book would not be without God giving them to me. I pray they say what God wants them to say, the way God wants them said. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above and cometh down from the Father of lights…” (James 1:17) Within the pages of this book, there are prayers asking for forgiveness, prayers asking for strength and prayers of praise and thankfulness. There are prayers expressing pain, prayers expressing sorrow and prayers expressing love for God. They all come from deep within my heart and they all bring comfort and release. I meant the words in this book to be personal and private, just between me and God. But God placed a strong feeling within me that the words weren’t meant just for me, and so I am following God’s will in publishing this book. If this book has found its way into your hands, my sincere prayer is that somewhere within its pages God will speak to you. I invite you to share how individual poems affected you on my Facebook page.

The remarkable debut from Plimpton Prize Winner Kelli Jo Ford, Crooked Hallelujah follows four generations of Cherokee women across four decades It’s 1974 in the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma and fifteen-year-old Justine grows up in a family of tough, complicated, and loyal women, presided over by her mother, Lula, and Granny. After Justine’s father abandoned the family, Lula became a devout member of the Holiness Church – a community that Justine at times finds stifling and terrifying. But Justine does her best as a devoted daughter, until an act of violence sends her on a different path forever. Crooked Hallelujah tells the stories of Justine—a mixed-blood Cherokee woman— and her daughter, Reney, as they move from Eastern Oklahoma’s Indian Country in the hopes of starting a new, more stable life in Texas amid the oil bust of the 1980s. However, life in Texas isn’t easy, and Reney feels unmoored from her family in Indian Country. Against the vivid backdrop of the Red River, we see their struggle to survive in a world—of unreliable men and near-Biblical natural forces, like wildfires and tornados—intent on stripping away their connections to one another and their very ideas of home. In lush and empathic prose, Kelli Jo Ford depicts what this family of proud, stubborn, Cherokee women sacrifices for those they love, amid larger forces of history, religion, class, and culture. This is a big-hearted and ambitious novel of the powerful bonds between mothers and daughters by an exquisite and rare new talent.

Mosby goes to church almost every Sunday; while he does tell about his visits to nursing homes and hospitals, surprisingly (for his owners) his story brings out how we can all serve God in many ways, every day of our lives, not just on Sunday mornings. Mosby has had a ball visiting the New Hampshire Highland Games, the town’s Ecumenical Thanksgiving Worship Service, the Halloween Parade, Independence Day and Christmas season festivities, and many more occasions. In every event, he brings his love for people with him and shares his warmth with everyone he meets. Through Mosby’s humorous, sometimes solemn, always inspirational exploits, learn how a dog can encourage you to take God into your life and work for Him every day of the week, not just on Sundays.
