There’s nothing exciting about being forced into the fraternity of hurting parents, but once there, the question becomes one of survival – for you, your young adult offspring, your family and the relationships you all share. How do you deal with the issues and heartache that accompany the drama? And if you’re a Christian, how do you reconcile your understanding of who God is with the situation in which you find yourself? For most parents, understandably, the question becomes, “How can I get through to my son/daughter?” But the question that really needs to be asked may be, “How can I get a grip on myself so I don’t do things that make matters worse?” This book is a toolkit filled little by little—one tool, one difficulty at a time. With these tools, the Lord Jesus Christ upheld me, firmly but tenderly showed me options that lay before me, and helped me navigate—giving me fresh perspective—in the midst of heart-wrenching challenges. I shudder to think how I might have responded absent His help. Amazingly, often unbeknown to me, at the same time the Lord was helping me, He was wonderfully at work in the lives of our young adult children and our family as a whole. My toolkit is something I wish I’d never needed, but over time, it has become a treasure for which I am deeply grateful. I humbly share my treasure with you.

It’s scones and scandal for Indigo Tea Shop owner Theodosia Browning in the latest from the New York Times bestselling author of Steeped in Evil… Normally Theodosia wouldn’t attend a black tie affair for all the tea in China. But she can hardly say no to her hunky, handsome boyfriend, Max, who directs public relations for the Gibbes Museum in Charleston. Max has organized an amazing gala opening for an exhibit of a genuine eighteenth century Chinese teahouse, and the crème de la crème of Charleston society is invited. In the exotic garden staged in the museum’s rotunda, a Chinese dragon dances to the beat of drums as it weaves through the crowd. The guests are serenaded by a Chinese violin as they sample an assortment of tempting bites. And to give them a memento of the occasion, there’s even a photo booth. But Theodosia makes a grim discovery behind the booth’s curtains: the body of museum donor Edgar Webster. While Theodosia prefers tea service over the service of justice, this case is difficult to ignore—especially after Max becomes a suspect. Now she must examine the life of the fallen philanthropist and find out who really wanted him to pay up… INCLUDES DELICIOUS RECIPES AND TEA TIME TIPS!

Oh my God, if Mr. Campbells story is true, it is the evidence beyond any doubt that the system which is put in place to protect us has turned against us. LIVING IN FEAR is an easy to read story that will grab your attention at page one and never let go, a true story of mental breakdown, paranoia and alcoholism, a mans fifteen year journey to another chance in life. Campbells story looks to be perfect material for a great movie; you have Erin Brockovich, the impossible legal battles against the big corporations, you have the intentions of the movie, Law Abiding Citizen, you have the Conspiracy Theory, Sleeping With The Enemy and Campbell has spent fifteen years in a secure room that he set up as his own courtroom, he brought Judges, lawyers, the government and the financial institutions to trial thousands of times in a much better concept then the movie, A Beautiful Mind.

Written by a pastor and father who has walked a painful road, Hope When Life Unravels explores the encouraging, upside-down truths of the book of Job, and other key Bible passages, to remind us of the ways God is present in our pain. Why does God allow suffering? And why does God seem to go silent when we're in pain? In Hope When Life Unravels, Dr. Adam Dooley, pastor and host of the daily radio broadcast A Better Way, searches for answers to our biggest questions about suffering as he shares his son Carson's story of battling leukemia. Adam speaks openly about the gut-wrenching struggle his family endured for three years of life-threatening illness and how God met them in their hours of need--even when it wasn't in the ways they wanted. And, along with his own story, Adam takes readers through the story of Job, unpacking insights about God's character, his love, and how we can stay connected to him even during seasons of pain. Both inspiring and comforting, Hope When Life Unravels invites us to draw closer to a God who is often active in our lives in times when we have trouble seeing him the most.
