In her young formative years, Kimberly Molyneaux's life was filled with constant chaos, moving from place to place, having lived in more than sixty different places by the time she was eighteen years old. When she was seven years old while living in a foster home, she had a "spiritual experience," a conversation with Jesus. She asked Jesus the perplexing questions, "of who am I" and "why am I here." From that conversation, she came away with a knowing that she was indeed loved by Jesus, and she would never be alone, that Jesus, (later, she realized the conversation was with her own Spirit), was always with her. By the age of nineteen, Kimberly had been abused, sexually, physically and emotionally by several of her own caretakers. And at the age of seventeen she became pregnant and dropped out of high school. At age fourteen she had begun escaping and surviving these challenges by writing poetry. By the time she was twenty-three, she had married for the second time, to her "Prince Charming." She and her former husband chose to have four more children, moving several times for his career and settling down in her dream home. Even with having all the material things, a home, a husband, a family, a church home, she still felt like something was missing from her life. Instead of feeling blissful, happy and joy, she struggled with depression, suicidal thoughts and a deep desire to know why she felt so empty and lost inside. She sought out ways to feed aching her soul through more religion, shopping, alcohol, and various destructive behaviors. Finally, she realized that there must be another way, another path to find the missing pieces of her soul. Through years of writing poetry, reading self-help and spiritual books, she realized that what she was searching for was her own sense of self. Kimberly invites you to take a peek into her poetry memoir, to feel her pain, feel her joy and with hopes that you, the reader can find healing and a sense of self as well, on your own pa
The 21st century calls for a methodology that efficiently and effectively addresses organizational issues. That is why author Phillip C. Reinke created DMADD (Define/Measure/Analyze/ Develop/Deliver). This methodology is capable of taking your organization from simply surviving to thriving.

Told against the backdrop of the American landscape of the late '80s to the mid-'90s, Growing Up Dead is the story of Peter Conners's journey from straight-laced suburban kid to touring Deadhead. Peter discovered the Grateful Dead in 1985, at the age of 15, through friends who exchanged bootleg tapes of live Grateful Dead concerts. A teenager living in the suburbs of Rochester, New York, he became exposed to an entirely new way of life, and friends who were enjoying more freedom and less parental guidance. At the age of 16, he attended his first Grateful Dead concert on June 30, 1987 - he was hooked. Between 1987 and 1995, Conners would attend Dead 'shows' all over the United States. He traveled with a makeshift 'family' of other Deadheads in a Volkswagen camper, selling drugs and whatever else would provide gas money to the next concert. His hair was a wild, unkempt bush and baths were infrequent. In short, he had progressed from suburban kid, to Grateful Dead fan, to full-blown Deadhead. Chronicling this progression, which culminates with the 1995 death of Jerry Garcia, Conners reveals the truth behind Deadhead culture and history. The result is a riveting insight into the obsessive fandom that made The Grateful Dead the most successful touring band of all time, as well as a cultural phenomenon.

Increasingly in modern society children are born into the world burdened by parental expectations, which can lead an impressionable child to become an overachiever. As a result, the child may grow into an adult who is never satisfied with his accomplishments, no matter how substantial they are perceived to be by family and peers. The themes of conformity and lost innocence are explored thoughtfully in POETRY OF MIDLIFE CRISIS. Suddenly, in midlife, the poet discovers that his destiny has been defined by others. The crisis is upon him; it is time to pause, to take stock. Mr. Mayers provocative poems are evidence of self discovery, of the self freeing itself, of one mans emancipation. Often poignant, certainly wry and playful, Mr. Mayers collection of verse challenges our assumptions and conventions and, in so doing, the author not only liberates his own soul but lifts the readers spirits.
