From public school to homeschool, here's Haven! Haven Jennings is the center of this lighthearted (sometimes laugh out loud) comedy. She is quick-witted, somewhat humorous, and a little bit worldly as she spent a good majority of her growing up years in the "dark side of education," as her homeschool friends would laughingly describe the public-school system. Haven attends an early morning Bible study with her mother and gifted brother Delbert. While Delbert is in the study to become biblically knowledgeable, Haven is in it for the social aspects. And what a social time she has as the Bible study is made up of supremely unique and awkward characters that are perfecting their craft in the art of socializing with other teens. One teen in particular, named Aaron, is new to the study. Haven happens to notice that not only is he nice looking, but he knows Haven's favorite TV family, the Duggars, of which Haven happens to be a fan of epic proportions. Because Haven wants so badly to know about these people, she believes that she can conjure up a friendship that is perfectly within appropriate boundaries with Aaron, as she finds out in the meantime that Aaron happens to be in a courtship with a girl back in his home town. Things become sticky when Haven, who has other guy friends within the Bible study, finds it difficult to have a friendship with Aaron. Something just isn't right about their relationship. In the end, Haven learns that blessing follows obedience, and obedience, while not always the easiest or plainest choice to make, definitely reaps its own rewards. Haven is hoping for the reward of meeting the famous family, and just maybe, she will, as the Lord only knows what is planned to happen On That Day.

Anyone that has had a loved one go home knows the pain and sorrow that can overwhelm them. The loss of a loved one can send you into a deep abyss of pain and sorrow. Do you wonder where your loved one is? What is he or she doing? What is Heaven like? How do you find comfort in the pain? Where is God when it hurts? This book was written as the author found herself asking the same questions when, while still grieving the loss of her dad, her strong, healthy husband had a sudden heart attack.

Trying to hold on to her faith while reeling from shock and grief, she threw herself into studying Gods Word and holding on to her faith while she tried to seek answers and comfort.

This is the story of one man's fight to guide his wife through an intractable disease, to help her make gut-wrenching decisions, and to deal with the consequences. One may never be fully prepared for death, but we can gain courage from Zimdahl's heroic struggle and learn from the powerful insights he acquires throughout the experience.
"Rather than the proverbial melting pot, Wilson asks us to recognize a West that is at least a place where, against a backdrop of aridity and expansive space, diverse lives can and do coexist." --John Rohrbach Renowned photographer Laura Wilson has captured the majesty, as well as the tragedy, of her home region of Texas and the wider West for more than three decades. A former assistant to Richard Avedon, she has published her work to wide acclaim over the past twenty-five years. As seen in this extraordinary book, Wilson's subjects range from legendary West Texas cattle ranches to impoverished Plains Indian reservations to lavish border-town cotillions. Also featured are compelling portraits of artists who are associated with the region, including Donald Judd, Ed Ruscha, and Sam Shepard. The unforgettable images in That Day, most of which are previously unpublished, tell sharply drawn stories of the people and places that have shaped, and continue to shape, the nation's most dynamic and unyielding land. Text from Wilson's journals accompanies the photographs, recalling her personal experiences behind the camera at the moment when a particular image was captured. With her incisive eye, Wilson casts a fresh light on the West--a topic of enduring fascination.
The rabbi looks into a professor’s death, in the New York Times–bestselling series that’s “the American equivalent of the British cozy” (Booklist). Retired from his job at the synagogue in Barnard’s Crossing, Massachusetts, Rabbi Small now teaches Judaic studies at a Boston college. Finally able to enjoy theological contemplation without the annoyance of temple politics, the rabbi is shocked when one of his colleagues is found dead in his car—and the clues at the scene point to murder. The deceased English professor was notoriously selfish and held long-standing grudges against other members of the faculty, so the list of suspects is long. But when the rabbi who took over Small’s position in Barnard’s Crossing is implicated, it falls to Small to clear his name and find the true killer, one last time.

"Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me" (Rev. 3:20). Wouldn't it be great if you could open the door, invite Jesus into your home, and ask Him when He's coming back? All the confusion about the events surrounding Christ's return would vanish as He explains the Scriptures to you. You would have your own "Emmaus Road journey." Like the apostles and first-century disciples, you could say that He opened the eyes of your understanding. That's exactly what this series does by unfolding in an easy-to-follow manner what God's Word shows us and what Jesus taught. Each of the three books focuses on three critical end-time revelations that open the door of our understanding surrounding the events of Christ's return. The New Testament apostles received these keys from Jesus Himself. Over the centuries, these revelations were lost or watered down, leaving us flustered and even fearful. That's not God's will. It's time to let the Word speak for itself with a message of comfort, hope, and victory. See the Day Approaching begins the Emmaus Road journey with the "one thing" God's Word says you need to know about God's timetable. It not only shows you how you can know that Jesus is coming soon, but why it is so vital that you know how to number the Days. Your eyes will be opened to the timing of the rapture, the signs of the end of this age, and even a "sneak peek" at what lies ahead. Despite what you may have heard, we are meant to know. It's in God's Word!
Call it a collection of stories or a compilation of human emotions, this is the second solo book of Ms Rimli Bhattacharya. The author calls herself a bohemian and travels around the globe in a caravan which is driven by rape, lust, lies, forbidden love, mental illness, homicide and death. This book had been crafted sitting in that caravan lost in myriad textures and flavours, with those mental demons screaming her to stop. She did not listen. The book which unleashes the dark domain of human mind makes it a compelling read.
