When her husband died suddenly on New Year’s Eve, Carol was left to raise their six boys, ages 11 months to 16 years. That night she made a promise to God: if He provided for her and the boys the way He promised in His Word, she would go anywhere He sent her and tell others of His care. But if He didn’t, she would burn her Bible on the front lawn and tell any onlooker that it was just a book of pretty words and pious phrases that wasn’t true when you needed it to be. God not only provided but had a big surprise: He sent her across the globe to share her story. Carol was then given an unexpected career in television and radio as host and producer, and later, a new husband. Faith for the Journey tells firsthand the life-changing things that can happen when you trust God with all your heart.

My Unsung Psalm begins with an invitation for you to experience seeing God for the first time and becoming part of the journey through Katherine's eyes of faith. Through a difficult childhood and a challenging medical history, she knows God is with her, and she is never afraid. It is a rare account of Katherine's feeling of being loved by God and being useful to mankind. She sees beyond her limitations and inspires others to never give up. Sometimes hope can level the playing field of life. We have a chance. We are offered the opportunity to make something of our lives, and that is what I did. "The message of My Unsung Psalm embraces the essence of the water of childhood memories becoming the wine of adult faith. You, the reader, can walk this journey of sadness and joy, and understand God's grace vividly as you turn each page of miracles, intertwining Katherine's circumstances with your own memories. Cherish God's message. Reflect upon this book. Consider the story as a foundation of faith and healing." - Judy McClure "Anyone in the ministry or entering the seminary should read this book." -Mary Bain Pearson "This is Katherine's story; her journey. A journey that begins with God holding her hand and ends with Katherine holding God's hand. It is not about the storms of her life, but rather, about the One who sailed the storms beside her. Her journey will lead you to yours and fill you with Hope! God's Song is love." -Rev. Edward Abell "She writes as beautifully as she paints." -Gloria McKay

"We found something." With these words, a Presbyterian minister is thrust into a medical crisis: a tumor is pressing on her brain. Doctors cannot offer a preferred treatment plan: radiation and surgery are equally valid but carry vastly different risks and consequences. She herself must choose. She plunges into a maze of medical research, but the analytical mode of Western culture cannot help her find peace in her decision. Instead, she is unwittingly led along an ancient prayer path called Lectio Divina, and transformed by inexplicable and repeated encounters with goodness. Still a community's shepherd in faith, she shoulders the question they too ask: "Can God be found here?" The maze becomes a labyrinth: a spiritual journey that brings her to a center that holds. Her decision made, she undergoes treatment. "You must have been terrified," a friend says. That is when the author realizes that her experience is unusual: she had not been afraid. How to explain that? This memoir recounts how her ideas of God and self are reshaped as she discovers a place of deep knowing and trust. Humbled and surprised, she experiences in her body the gospel she has preached for years.

Everyone needs a second chance, even if your name is George Foreman. "My second chance arrived unexpectedly in a Puerto Rican dressing room after a heavyweight boxing match. What happened to me in that room is so incredibly bizarre, it's unlikely you've ever before read anything like it. Simply stated, I died and went to the other side. The experience impacted me so profoundly that three decades later I can't go a single day without thinking about it." A childhood in grinding poverty. Two heavyweight boxing championships – twenty years apart. A life-changing encounter with God. A new life devoted to ministy. An inspiring comeback and then astounding success as an entrepreneur and trusted product pitchman. For the first time, George Foreman tells the whole story of his remarkable life. With the frankness, warmth, and humor you expect from Foreman, he shares the faith journey that has shaped his life, offering many life lessons along the way. What are the secrets to George Foreman's inspiring success? Why is he always smiling? Why did he name all five of his sons George? There is no one quiet like George Foreman. God in My Corner explains why. More importantly, it will open your eyes to the reality that God is there in your corner, just as He's been there for George all these years.

As a thirty-seven-year-old, highly skeptical, deeply rational woman, Joan had it all: loving family, extravagant home, a high-profile career, even personal contentment. So Joan was more surprised than anyone when she was relieved in an instant from the luxury of spiritual doubt and compelled to realign her life around practices of faith--about which she was a novice. With an unexplainable desire to pursue whatever God had for her at whatever cost was called for, Joan left her high-salary profession, sold her home and all her furniture (with her husband’s support), and started life from a blank slate. Finally realizing that she had been flirting with faith since she was a young teen, Joan fell in love with the God who had been pursuing her. Joan candidly shares the story of her radical life change as she moved from atheist, to agnostic in addiction recovery, to the unexpected moment when she was “struck” Christian. As Joan lets go of control and convention, her skepticism is gradually replaced with a realization that embracing her new faith with radical abandon led to a far more mysterious and countercultural lifestyle than she’d ever imagined.

There are few clues as to why a person responds to the vicissitudes of life in a given way. As John Sieckhaus states in this memoir of his own spiritual journey ?some have the courage to choose life from their earliest moments of sober reflection while others opt to soothe their pain with addictions of the mind and body, some choose an early final exit and still others stay the healing course trusting that there is purpose to their lives, meaning in their suffering, and healing as the intended outcome of some higher power.? The tragic slaying of his parents propels the author as sixteen year old onto a life course dictated initially by his own errant choices and the acculturations of family, tribe and society. His decision to pursue a Ph.D. in chemistry is consistent with his search for life?s magic formula, the alchemist?s quest for the philosopher?s stone, but the first fruits of this venture are depression and a horrific encounter with his ?family demons?. Resort to psychotherapy and chemical dis-ease management, a therapeutic model ?characterized by a patient?s need to trust in the alchemical wisdom of his or her therapist,? proves to be a mere palliative in a desperate striving to arrest the pain, and it is only through an encounter with the living God amidst a small band of refugees from mainline Christian churches that his journey of faith, remembrance and healing begins. John Sieckhaus tells this story with conviction and a deep sense of gratitude for God?s provision of trustworthy guides and fellow travelers on the way. It was from James and Mary Baird, a couple whose decision to stand against the racial prejudices inherent in their small town culture in Baird Mississippi in the 1950s forced them to leave family, clan and culture to reach out to the hurting and the needy in southeast Asia that he learned to heed God?s call in his life and to pursue his vocation with a new sense of adventure and purpose. In so doing he had to come to grips with his work as a scientist engaged in the development of weapon systems and was eventually led to challenge his company?s involvement with nerve gas research and resign his position. With each step in his vocational journey the healing went deeper and finally, after staying the course for more than twenty years, the author was gifted with a revelation of his family pathology which provided the clues concerning his own responses to life. This is a story that the author was compelled to tell because the telling was an integral part of his healing journey and because, as he states in the introduction ?I believe that what I have experienced and learned is not just for my own healing and spiritual growth, that perhaps it may help others walk their own path to wholeness. If this should prove to be the case for only one other person it (the telling) will have been worth the effort.?

I decided to admit once and for all that I didn’t know what I was doing, what I thought, what I believed, even sometimes if I truly believed. I would tell the truth: I wasn’t like them; I didn’t fit in. I wasn’t a proper Christian. I didn’t have it all together like they did. Why not, I figured? What in the world did I have to lose? _____ After twenty years of unbelief, estranged from her childhood faith and ultimately from God, Michelle DeRusha unexpectedly found herself wrestling hard with questions of spirituality— and deeply frustrated by the lack of clear answers. Until she realized that the questions themselves paved a way for faith. “Declaring my unbelief,” writes DeRusha, “was the first step; declaring my unbelief allowed me to begin to seek authentically.” Spiritual Misfit chronicles one woman’s journey toward an understanding that belief and doubt can coexist. This poignant and startlingly candid memoir reveals how being honest about our questions, our fears, and our discomfort with black-and-white definitions of faith can move us toward an authentic and a deepening relationship with God.
