When you think of the Newsboys, do you think rock and roll, gold records, concerts, and fame? Shine: Make Them Wonder What You’ve Got reveals the Newsboys in a way you have never seen them before--not just as performers but as Christians. Follow them as they travel through seasons of personal and spiritual growth, undergoing struggles that are common to all believers, experiencing faith-stretching circumstances, and seeking to live for Christ in an authentic way. Their spiritual journeys reflect a deep and growing faith that permeates their music while also transcending it. This new path challenges the limitations we’ve put on Christianity in our postmodern culture and seeks the essence of the Gospel. Shine will challenge and stretch your own spiritual expectations as you discover the dynamics of a living faith.

Inspire Integrity is addicting. It focuses on what it means to live an authentic life. Its chapters encourage people of all ages and circumstances to understand that authentic success comes from the attainment of: (1) a sincere sense of contentment, (2) strong personal relationships, and (3) a solid character. This is much different from worldly success such as excessive wealth, fame and popularity - things which, in and of themselves, do not have the capacity to make a person happy. It is designed to help people look critically at their life, think through their decisions, set priorities and goals, develop a solid character, avoid serious mistakes and discover their true passion in life. It draws on the major ethical frameworks of Aristotle, Mill and Kant as well as the Golden Rule as tools to avoid Benjamin Franklin's warning that people tend to get old too soon and wise too late. It presents a roadmap to accomplish this mission and advocates that each reader start the journey to authentic success now! Inspire Integrity focuses on the story of Cash, the racing greyhound, who is world famous and has won tens of millions of dollars winning races. The biggest race of his life is on the horizon and everyone is there, including the press, to cover history in the making. If he wins the race his owner will receive a million-dollar prize. The night before the race, Cash reveals he's not going to race the next day and that he is retiring completely. Shocked, the owner asks him whether he is hurt, mad at her, or too old? He responds that it's none of those things. In fact, he's been doing a lot of critical thinking about his life and has come to the conclusion that all he's ever done is run around dirt racetracks, and he just cannot do it anymore. He finally understands that those little white rabbits that everyone encourages him to chase day and night aren't even real.

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JULIA ROBERTS, OWEN WILSON, AND JACOB TREMBLAY! Over 6 million people have read the #1 New York Times bestseller WONDER and have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face. The book that inspired the Choose Kind movement. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse. August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance. "Wonder is the best kids' book of the year," said Emily Bazelon, senior editor at and author of Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel “a meditation on kindness” —indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out. Join the conversation: #thewonderofwonder

"Redefining the genre of 'self-help comedy,' Shine is a book about the brevity of life. It contains adult themes of mortality, change, exhaustion and unrelenting pressure. Thankfully, the bleakness is done with humour and the solutions are entertaining, do-able and uplifting"--

A manager's job is getting harder to do. But the central question for all managers - the one that separates great managers from the rest- is how to get the most from your people. What do you do when your most talented people fall short of their potential, or worse, fall off their game for awhile? How do you inspire a solid contributor to even more stellar performance? How do you find that spark? And turn it into a burning flame? According to best-selling author and psychiatrist, Ned Hallowell, it's all in the brain. Creating that spark and inspiring someone to perform at their highest levels isn't rocket science; but it is brain science, and it has yet to be codified into a simple and reliable process that all managers can use. Drawing from his expertise helping people reach their full potential and synthesizing the latest research on happiness, brain science, and performance, Hallowell does exactly that -- he offers a five step process that leads to peak performance. Based on the latest findings in the fast-moving field of high performance research and rooted in the work of Martin Seligman, Dan Gilbert, Marcus Buckingham, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, John Ratey, and many other experts in psychology and neuroscience, this book gives managers a simple and coherent framework for getting the best out of people: (1) Selection - how to put people in the right job, and give them the responsbilities that literally make their brains "light up;" (2) Connection - how to overcome the powerful forces that disconnect us interpersonally in today's workplace, and how to restore the positive connections that fuel superior performance; (3) Play - why play is essential to peak performance, and how managers can get it right; (4) Progress - when the pressure is on, how to challenge the right person at the right time; (5) Recognition - why reward systems always decrease peak performance, and how managers can finally get this right The value of the five steps is that each step builds on another. For instance, there's no point in challenging an employee to go beyond their personal best if you haven't bothered to ensure first that you've got them in the right job. And there's no way to successfully get someone to think more creatively if you haven't first established the personal connection with her so that she knows her wild ideas will be taken seriously. And there's no point in demanding more, if you haven't first given employees a chance to engage their imagination and play around with the things that "light up their brains." Especially in times of mental overload and stress, when invoking people to suck it up or work even harder isn't an effective management tool, managers need a new game plan, like the one in this book, for helping their people perform at their best.

In reading Let the Darkness Shine, you will notice that while each chapter can be read, viewed, and ultimately understood, of its own accord, as an individual work, so too, when taken as a collective of essays and poems, the book, forms an unusually holistic, if not what someone might call wholesome, view of reality. Basically, the world today. What brought us here? Where are we going? What are the consequences of caring, ultimately doing, or not, something about the human condition, in your own world, as the one at large, today? Make no mistake about it, the book does not give any 'formulaic' answers, as quick-fixes. Nor is it a simple admonition on ethics, or 'trendy' approach to solving the problems of humanity at large. It is however, a foundation, if not quite a monastic one, though strongly stressing history and culture, as teacher, for the future of humanity. This, from its often murky past, to a precarious present, and hopefully, a more optimistic, if not quite certain, future. In short, if not claiming to have all the answers, by presenting certain facts, observations, and implicit conclusions, my book does, so too hopefully, ask questions that may point some, those willing to listen, in a genuinely different direction. What led me to this work? As the son of a former Soviet dissident, Arkady Lvov, himself a well published writer, I had found that my life, as I lived it, across east and west, had forced me to see and wonder, about many things, great and small, pleasant and less so, alike. From the back streets of Odessa, in the Ukraine, where I was born, to all 5 boroughs of New York, where I spent much of my youth, since arriving in the U.S, unto to Moscow, and later, St. Petersburg Russia, where I had spent well over a decade, in my adult years, I have been around. On a yet more personal note, once having attended medical school abroad, sometimes feeling myself more a specimen than student, I ultimately decided that literature may be as good a venue for healing the ills of humanity, as any medical procedures out there today. Some may disagree, that too is fine. On the more technical side of things, Let the Darkness Shine starts by examining the works of modern classical American song writers, Bob Marley, Jim Morrison, and John Lennon, from a whole new perspective - to say the least. How so? Basically, I look at the unrealized dreams and hopes of America's several generations. Yet, with my own lyrics, combined with fragments of theirs, I create words for songs, that epitomize new generations lost, and have thus far, remained unsung. In being part of those disenfranchised, I suppose the book, in some ways, was a search for myself, perhaps some others, who would help me answer that. Over the past 50 years, what were people, east to west, hoping for? What do they have today? Is there still something to look forward to? Hmmm..... Please understand, this is not a book about a return to grass roots movements, folk singers, or the 60's. Let the Darkness Shine, as its name implies, goes to things darker, in a newer light. As such, the work quickly transcends mere sentiments, delving into forgotten history, one not taught in schools. Subejct including, though not exclusive to, notions of how masonic influences help shape modern society. Is this for the better or worse of man? YOU decide! Ultimately, the book asks , "Am I better?" And if so, for what? For, or against the status-quo? If looking to the image of the original rebel in creation, where does one go? Hence, the book flows from the words of Bob Marley, to ones of the fallen angel, and his indictment of humanity, and why it is even here at all. Esoterica aside, the text also contains chapters of prose, not lyrics, which depict Russia, as often unseen by outsiders. An additional essay deals with an existential conflict of the thinker, perhaps unlike Albert Camus, but in vein similar.Enjoy!
