Life has a way of tilting. Jobs are lost. Children leave. Homes foreclose. Spouses die. Everyone experiences the loss of something or someone precious at some point. And more often than not a loss is unexpected, certainly unwanted, and can be our undoing. Miriam Neff, M.A. in counseling, has experienced loss in many manifestations from her beloved soul mate Bob going home to the Lord to a close family member’s incarceration. Yet, she has learned “that good things are still possible.” “Life is like a kaleidoscope. We point our sphere toward the light, peer in, and see a beautiful array of glass and stones reflecting beauty, diversity, and contrast. We adjust the lens, and another beautiful, yet different combination of color evolves. Then suddenly the kaleidoscope is thrust to face a black hole. No light means no beautiful display. When you timidly, maybe fearfully, tilt your kaleidoscope back toward the light, you’ll see a new combination you’ve never seen before, colors you didn’t know existed. Location and contrast create new and unexpected beauty. “ More than a “survival” book, Where Do I go From Here raises the bar in life after loss to include love, laughter, and adventure. This is a book about facing forward, not backwards. It is about purposely moving into a bolder and broader future. Includes practical help and chapter discussion questions for individual or group study.
Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! Those who hear and don’t act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like. (James 1:22–24 The Message) This book was written on author’s life experiences. It focused on family hurts, pain, lies, deceit, and forgiveness. It brings the reader into the reality of family secrets: “What’s done in this house stays in this house.” This book shares a light at the end of the tunnel. It brings to the people–whether woman, man, boy, or girl—the hope that there’s a way out and that past circumstances don’t have to become our future. We can hold on to the thought that we can make it through any situation with the help of the Lord. Where Do I Go from Here? is also a book of mixed emotions. —Yolanda Griffin In this book are life-changing testimonies and many helpful insights on how to live past your hurts and pains. This is a book that gives insight on how to be free through forgiving yourself and others that have causes you pain. It also gives insight on how to mature in Jesus Christ. —Renee Smith Where Do I Go From Here? is an open invitation to anyone who wants to understand that God covers and keeps us throughout it all, from birth to entrance into His kingdom. His love never dies! God gives us liberty even when we don’t know how to grab it ourselves. Once we are set free, we are free indeed. I am a living witness that there is life after a divorce and that we are truly free to go after whatever God has for us. Hallelujah! —Angela Lambert I am not a book reader, but once I picked up this book, it was hard to put it down. Thank you, Teresa, for allowing God to use you to help others to open their eyes and see their true potential. May God continue blessing you and your family. —Patrick A. Smith

Now in Paperback! The Road to Science Fiction is a six-volume anthology that covers the development of this genre from its earliest prototypes to the current day. Created originally to provide anthologies for use in classrooms in the late 1970s, these volumes became mass-market sellers. Between an ancient Roman's trip to the moon and the fantastic tales of H.G. Wells lies a journey through time and space and an awesome evolution in scientific thinking. From Gilgamesh's search for immortality to Edgar Allan Poe's balloon trip in the year 2848 these and other key works are gathered together for the first time in one anthology, complete with revealing commentary on the authors, their eras, and the role each played in establishing what we today recognize as science fiction. Volume 4 From Here to Forever covers the period from 1950-1992, illustrating how science fiction can be as concerned with language and character as much as traditional fiction and anything in the mainstream. Includes stories by Jorge Luis Borges, Richard Matheson, C. M. Kornbluth, Jack Vance, and Pamela Zoline.
Welcome to the "limbo relationship," where it isn't bad enough to leave, but it isn't good enough to stay... This book is not for those in abusive relationships. It's not for those dealing with infidelity or money problems. But it's about a relationship problem that's just a tricky to deal with: Apathy. Boredom. Loss of passion. Welcome to the "limbo relationship", where it isn't bad enough to leave, but it isn't good enough to stay. If you're stuck in a marriage that feels like it's slowly going cold on you, this guide will show you how a subtle but powerful shift in perspective can reignite that passion and bring more authenticity to your commitment. With kindness and self-awareness, you can recapture that original loving feeling and get to the heart of what your relationships are all about. This book is for everyone who feels that the passion and fire of their relationship have gone, and they aren't happy about it. "Where did our love go?" is a simple question, but it can have some very complicated answers. In the chapters that follow, we'll look at ways to arrive at an answer that will respect your unique relationship, with all its strengths and flaws. As the years tick on in a marriage, most people know to expect a slow fading of intense lust and the gradual development of a deeper, but more stable connection. But the transition from one to the other can be challenging! "Passion" in a relationship is a strange thing. The moment you try to put your finger on it, it wriggles away. If you're like many couples, you may have already tried some of the usual suggestions, like sexy lingerie or going on a holiday together. But these things, while certainly in the right direction, are seldom enough. If you find yourself in this position, then read on. This book is all about getting to the root of the problem of waning passion. By looking at the deeper workings of your marriage, you don't just "fix" the lack of passion, you rebuild your whole relationship over again, this time placing love and passion at the center. By carefully understanding your personal ideas of commitment, action and passion, we'll be able to slowly rework them, and create a long term relationship that is healthy, fulfilling and real.
