From New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Lorhainne Eckhart comes a story of family, romance, and finding a place to call home. Brad Friessen knows he has to sell the ranch, but not everyone is on board with his decision or open to a new beginning. He has a plan: Find a nice place with some land where he can retire—but for his children, life has suddenly become much more complicated. Katy and Steven have called the ranch home and aren’t inclined to see the adventure in their upcoming move. While Emily, Jack and Trevor, and Fletcher are somewhat open to the possibilities, what Brad doesn’t know is that Katy and Steven had a plan, too. The life they’ve always wanted is the kind of life Brad and Emily have, with the ranch, the land, and eventually more children. Finding a cheap, rundown house to rent wasn’t in the cards for Katy and Steven, nor has it been easy for either to be practical when their dream of having a ranch of their own to run, to raise a family on, seems to be moving ever further out of reach. As the countdown begins to the date they have to leave, to the sale of the one place they’ve all called home for what’s seemed like forever, Katy and Steven, Brad and Emily, and the rest of the Friessen family might just be crazy enough to find a way for them all to have what they truly want.

Normal0falsefalsefalseEN-USX-NONEX-NONEMicrosoftInternetExplorer4 The history of educational summer camps in American Reform Judaism. Reform Judaism is not the only religious community in America to make the summer camp experience a vital part of a faith community's effort to impart its values and beliefs to its adolescents, but perhaps no group relied more on summer camp as an adjunct to home and community for this purpose. Summer camp became an important part of Reform group identity, a bulwark against the attraction of assimilation into the greater society and mere nominal Judaism. These essays, which commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the first Reform Jewish educational camp in the United States (Olin-Sang-Ruby Union Institute [OSRUI], in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin) cover a wide range of topics related to both the Reform Judaism movement and the development of the Reform Jewish camping system in the United States. Donald M. Splansky’s chapter on “Prayer at Reform Jewish Camps” documents changes in prayer services that took place both at OSRUI and in the Reform movement in general; Michael Zeldin’s “Making the Magic in Reform Jewish Summer Camps” describes the educational philosophies employed at many camps and analyzes their effectiveness; and Jonathan D. Sarna’s “The Crucial Decade in Jewish Camping” explains how social, political, and cultural conditions paved the way for the Reform camping movement. Contributors: Judah M. Cohen, Rabbi Hillel Gamoran, Michael M. Lorge, Jonathan D. Sarna, Rabbi Donald M. Splansky, Michael Zeldin, Gary P. Zola

Because of his clear understanding of the workings and ways of God in the soul, G. D. Watson has been called “the apostle to the sanctified.” Our Own God is a great example of the way in which Watson was able to pass on this understanding to his readers with great ease and clarity. Here is a paragraph from the first chapter: “God is our own in a peculiar, individual way, privately and personally, so as to thrill us with a joy with which no stranger can intermeddle. God can never be to any other creature in all the universe just exactly what he is to us. Have we ever thought for five minutes of the grandeur of being created with a unique, individual personality all to ourselves, with a private nature, a great soul world in ourselves, a distinct orb of conscious, immortal existence, and walled in from all other creatures, with a deep privacy of nature into which no one in all the universe can enter except the Lord our God, our loving Creator? Probably this is the greatest glory of our creation, that each of us has in our personality a sacred sanctuary in the ocean depths of our souls, with a door that never opens except to the touch of that eternal, blessed one who created us out of his love, and then redeemed us from an awful fall out of what seems even a greater love than creation.”

When Georgia Southern College in the small town of Statesboro opened its doors to its first six colored students in 1965, it did so without much of the very public outcry faced at other schools and colleges as part of desegregation. These six pioneers share their personal memories of integrating the college, which opened doors for those who would follow. In 2014, more than 5,400 African American students enrolled at the school, now known as Georgia Southern University (GSU). The essays of those initial pioneers—as well as those by fifteen other alums through the Class of 1985—demonstrate the perseverance of the human spirit and illustrate how social change can be achieved by boldly confronting difficult and frightening situations to bring about lasting reform. Their stories of integration at the southern school tell of emotional ordeals, some of which led to lasting scars and times of defeat. Life wasn’t easy if you were black on a predominantly white college campus. But in the midst of despair comes triumph. In Our Own Words also shares the determination and dedication of those early students, most of whom went on to successful careers and personal accomplishments. This powerful collection of essays that needed to be written showcases a group of students who never dreamed they would one-day help shape the college’s history and leave a legacy that would allow others to follow in their footsteps.

The author addresses sensitive issues emerging from changing Christianity's messages to the world and the resulting influence, not only to Christianity itself, but to western world governments. He maintains that Governments and Christianity have both fallen prey to political manipulation of man's sensitive ego; and the only reason that has happened is because official Institutional Christianity now "coddles" ego to enlarge its membership. He concludes that gaining control of personal "ego" is the primary biblical message to living out Christian standards and traces the decline in western culture and the dismantling of free societies to the abandonment of traditional Christianity.

Boys strapped to carpet looms in India, women trafficked into sex slavery across Europe, children born into bondage in Mauritania, and migrants imprisoned at gunpoint in the United States are just a few of the many forms slavery takes in the twenty-first century. There are twenty-seven million slaves alive today, more than at any point in history, and they are found on every continent in the world except Antarctica. To Plead Our Own Cause contains ninety-five narratives by slaves and former slaves from around the globe. Told in the words of slaves themselves, the narratives movingly and eloquently chronicle the horrors of contemporary slavery, the process of becoming free, and the challenges faced by former slaves as they build a life in freedom. An editors' introduction lays out the historical, economic, and political background to modern slavery, the literary tradition of the slave narrative, and a variety of ways we can all help end slavery today. Halting the contemporary slave trade is one of the great human-rights issues of our time. But just as slavery is not over, neither is the will to achieve freedom, "plead" the cause of liberation, and advocate abolition. Putting the slave's voice back at the heart of the abolitionist movement, To Plead Our Own Cause gives occasion for both action and hope.

For four crucial months in 1861, delegates from all over the South met in Montgomery, Alabama, to establish a new nation. Davis (Jefferson Davis: The Man and the Hour, LJ 11/15/91) tells their story in this new work, another example of Davis's fine storytelling skill and an indispensable guide to understanding the formation of the Confederate government. Among the issues Davis examines are revising the Constitution to meet Southern needs, banning the importation of slaves, and determining whether the convention could be considered a congress. Also revealed are the many participating personalities, their ambitions and egos, politicking and lobbying for the presidency of the new nation, and the nature of the city of Montgomery itself.

In celebration of Pride, Tor.com Publishing presents four critically acclaimed novellas featuring LGBTQ+ characters. With Miranda in Milan, debut author Katharine Duckett reimagines the consequences of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, casting Miranda into a Milanese pit of vipers and building a queer love story that lifts off the page in whirlwinds of feeling. After the tempest, after the reunion, after her father drowned his books, Miranda was meant to enter a brave new world. Naples awaited her, and Ferdinand, and a throne. Instead she finds herself in Milan, in her father’s castle, surrounded by hostile servants who treat her like a ghost. Whispers cling to her like spiderwebs, whispers that carry her dead mother’s name. And though he promised to give away his power, Milan is once again contorting around Prospero’s dark arts. With only Dorothea, her sole companion and confidant to aid her, Miranda must cut through the mystery and find the truth about her father, her mother, and herself. NPR calls Every Heart a Doorway "a mini-masterpiece of portal fantasy — a jewel of a book that deserves to be shelved with Lewis Carroll's and C. S. Lewis' classics". Hugo, Nebula, Locus, and Alex AWARD winner, World Fantasy and British Fantasy Award finalist, and Tiptree Honor List title. Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children No Solicitations No Visitors No Quests Children have always disappeared under the right conditions; slipping through the shadows under a bed or at the back of a wardrobe, tumbling down rabbit holes and into old wells, and emerging somewhere... else. But magical lands have little need for used-up miracle children. Nancy tumbled once, but now she's back. The things she's experienced... they change a person. The children under Miss West's care understand all too well. And each of them is seeking a way back to their own fantasy world. But Nancy's arrival marks a change at the Home. There's a darkness just around each corner, and when tragedy strikes, it's up to Nancy and her new-found schoolmates to get to the heart of things. No matter the cost. The sisters of the Order of Saint Rita captain their living ship into the reaches of space in Lina Rather's debut novella, Sisters of the Vast Black. Years ago, Old Earth sent forth sisters and brothers into the vast dark of the prodigal colonies armed only with crucifixes and iron faith. Now, the sisters of the Order of Saint Rita are on an interstellar mission of mercy aboard Our Lady of Impossible Constellations, a living, breathing ship which seems determined to develop a will of its own. When the order receives a distress call from a newly-formed colony, the sisters discover that the bodies and souls in their care—and that of the galactic diaspora—are in danger. And not from void beyond, but from the nascent Central Governance and the Church itself. Sorcerer of the Wildeeps is the Crawford Award-winning novella that Wired listed as one of their twenty-five all-time favorite books. Critically acclaimed author Kai Ashante Wilson makes his commercial debut with this striking, wondrous tale of gods and mortals, magic and steel, and life and death that will reshape how you look at sword and sorcery. Since leaving his homeland, the earthbound demigod Demane has been labeled a sorcerer. With his ancestors' artifacts in hand, the Sorcerer follows the Captain, a beautiful man with song for a voice and hair that drinks the sunlight. The two of them are the descendants of the gods who abandoned the Earth for Heaven, and they will need all the gifts those divine ancestors left to them to keep their caravan brothers alive. The one safe road between the northern oasis and southern kingdom is stalked by a necromantic terror. Demane may have to master his wild powers and trade humanity for godhood if he is to keep his brothers and his beloved captain alive.

Have you ever felt that you had a great insight that would benefit your department, division, or organization and found that you seem to be the only one who can see it? Worse yet, has it ever seemed that while you are struggling to pull your idea into consideration, others are actively holding you back? If you just had the power, you think, great things could be accomplished. What is your reaction? Have you and others who suggest new ideas been so beaten down in the past that you simply let the idea go because it isn’t worth the emotional capital to pursue it? If that is the case, and your idea is indeed a good one, who suffers? You? The organization? The organization’s customers? The answer is all of the above. This book is designed to help those with limited positional power to find ways to get their ideas seriously considered. It is also designed to help those with positional power create a culture that encourages ideas that will benefit the organization regardless of their source. Inspired by Spencer Johnson’s classic fable, Who Moved My Cheese?, the authors of this book decided that there was another story that could be told about taking a more proactive, team-based approach to change. We Move Our Own Cheese! is about creating change. As in Johnson’s book, the cheese is a metaphor for what we have in life and what we believe we want more of. In a business context, it represents the business we are in—our current paradigm—and what it gives us. "A cleverly conceived, thought-provoking fable by authors Fair and Sower that provides great insight into how to recognize the need for organizational change, the courage to make changes - and the necessity of taking risks in order for an organization’s survival in today's innovative and highly competitive world. A great read for employees at every organizational level in any industry. I hope that this excellent book will have timely and wide distribution." Richard Bozeman, Author and Inventor; Retired Chief of the Propulsion and Power Division Test Facilities, NASA "It was very clever and thought provoking. I think the book could open up numerous opportunities for consulting and seminars." Peter Birkholz, M.B.A. Managing Partner, Sam Houston Group, LP and Management Consultant, Birkholz Management Co. ZLLC. "The manuscript is very well written. The characters represent very recognizable types in organizations. Their reactions to threat and authority are realistic, making them sympathetic figures. The story is compelling, with exciting plot twists. I couldn’t stop reading until the end. The diary entries are a clever way to help the reader understand the story’s underlying messages. Your prologue and epilogue are thorough and will be very useful for instructors and trainers, especially the list of discussion questions at the end." Dr. Geraldine Hynes, Ph.D. Professor of Business Communication, Sam Houston State University "I thoroughly enjoyed reading the manuscript. The simple, fun way the fable is written captivates the interest of the reader. I love the way the lessons are weaved into the fable and how they are presented, pulled out for emphasis in a book format. The main lesson and contributing lessons are profound and apply to any organization and individuals at a personal level. The diverse characters seem to come to life and the fable highlights the importance of teamwork leveraging the unique skills of the team. In addition, it points out that leadership among team members is fluid and situational. Such a fable can be used in academic and business settings. Academically, it would be valuable for students learn that they are empowered to create the path in front of them and how to be creative to overcome obstacles. In a business environment, it could reinforce for executives the importance of building a culture of innovation." Jerrine Baker, M.B.A. University Lecturer and President-Owner, Majestic Dreams Travel
