God Gives Us Hope in Crisis Everyone faces heartache and disappointment at some point in life, but when there is profound loss and tragedy you may feel helpless and hopeless. You may even find yourself questioning everything you have believed about your future and about God's love and His plan for your life. Ricky Texada shares his own story of unexpected loss and personal devastation, offering new perspective on God's amazing ability to restore. Would God reveal Himself in the midst of the darkest days of his soul? Could He be trusted after allowing so much pain? Was it possible for the sorrow to be turned into joy, allowing Ricky to run the race of life again with purpose and determination? My Breaking Point, God's Turning Point demonstrates that hope can be found in the midst of devastation. As you join Ricky on this journey, you will find that God hears those who seek after Him, and that in the midst of loss and heartache, He reaches out . . . and restores. "This book will inspire you to believe that God can and will work all things out for those who love Him. It is filled with hope and the promise of restoration for any situation."--Donald Driver, New York Times bestselling author, Super Bowl Champion, and Dancing with the Stars winner

Samantha has great friends and possesses every material thing she wants, but she soon finds herself in danger after mysterious occurrences. She becomes restless when she realises that she doesn’t know the cause of these events. Samantha is warned that involving the police will result in death, and she goes into hiding. Can Samantha hide from an unknown pursuant who knows everything about her? Who can she turn to in this time of distress and loneliness? How does she know she won’t be double-crossed?
After going past the point of no return and finally reaching breaking point, the only thing Matthew Elliott can do now is start over. Matthew Elliott is a recovering man. As an ex-cop and ex-fighter, his new job teaching kids at the local community gym about drug awareness and self-defense, is a little bit of both. His new focus on helping street kids is helping him heal, and with Kira by his side, he's making strides. Brother and sister, Rueben and Claudia, are homeless kids and they're very much alone. As they strike a chord with Matt, he does everything in his power to help them. But when Ruby and Claude need more help than he bargained for, it stops being about work, and starts being about home. The day he met Kira, Matt's life changed direction, and it's only now he realizes that everything he's been through was a lead up to this. It was never about endings. His life, his purpose, was just beginning. **Third Edition: May 2016 New publisher, new editing, new cover. No new content has been added.

? It is the desire in a person that makes one seek the truth. And it is the silent whispers of the heart that stirs those desires to take the courageous path. Like the whispers of my heart to have my independent thinking, to examine everything. Like the yearning in me to find out why I exist and what really is the concept of God. This, led me to embark on my journey of discovery, I was ready to take on the challenge. Like me, every one of us desires to know the answers to the meaning of their lives and beliefs. Few gather the courage to walk this road. Fear of what they might discover at the Turning Point of the road grips them, fear of losing the comfort zone they possess shatters them and fear of being alone in the end terrifies them. So they shun their desire for truth and subdue their courage for questioning and challenging. What ‘Turning Point’ has to offer is only for those who are ready to meet their fears, take the challenge and find the answers. If our Creator is the truth, our puny challenges and questions can do no harm to its existence. Are you ready?
This compelling video was developed for male clients who are dealing with alcohol or other drug addiction. It includes interviews with African American men in different stages of recovery and reintegration, along with straight talk from counselors, community activists, a neighborhood pastor, and a drug court judge. All echo the same message: in order to change, these men must give up not only alcohol and other drugs but also their unhealthy lifestyles.

We solve our problems based upon the way we think of ourselves and the world. From peak energy and peak debt to failing economies and the realities of climate change, everyday life is showing us where we’ve outgrown the thinking of the past. It’s also showing us where big changes in the world mean big changes in our lives. Through dramatic shifts in our jobs, our relationship to money, our health, and even our homes, it’s clear that our lives are changing in ways we’ve never seen, to a degree that we’re not prepared for, and at speeds that we’ve never experienced. It’s also clear that the thinking of the past is no longer enough to meet our needs today. A new, healthy, and sustainable world is emerging, and our ability to accept what it offers begins with our willingness to: • Honestly acknowledge the facts of what we’re up against. • Embrace the new discoveries that reveal the role of cooperation in nature and human communities. • Create resilience in our lives, families, and communities based upon five proven and sustainable principles. • Through easy-to-understand science and the wisdom traditions of the past, The Turning Point identifies the extremes in the world that are reshaping our lives, the keys to thrive in the midst of the transformation, and the strategies to get us there.

Kristen Simmons' fast-paced, gripping YA dystopian series continues in Breaking Point. After faking their deaths to escape from prison in Article 5, Ember Miller and Chase Jennings have only one goal: to lay low until the Federal Bureau of Reformation forgets they ever existed. Near-celebrities now for the increasingly sensationalized tales of their struggles with the government, Ember and Chase are recognized and taken in by the Resistance—an underground organization working to systematically take down the government. At headquarters, all eyes are on the sniper, an anonymous assassin taking out FBR soldiers one by one. Rumors are flying about the sniper's true identity, and Ember and Chase welcome the diversion.... Until the government posts its most-wanted list, and their number one suspect is Ember herself. Orders are shoot to kill, and soldiers are cleared to fire on suspicion alone. Suddenly Ember can't even step onto the street without fear of being recognized, and "laying low" is a joke. Even members of the Resistance are starting to look at her sideways. With Chase urging her to run, Ember must decide: Go into hiding...or fight back? At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
