"In the underrated noughties film Crossroads, Britney Spears sang the immortal words 'I'm not a girl, not yet a woman'. Cheers Brit. I too find myself getting stuck somewhere between being an overdeveloped teenager and not quite being a fully functioning adult woman. I have no idea how to back-up my iCloud, I can't drive and I'm pretty bad at stopping men with exciting beards and unbuttoned vintage shirts from taking a big old walk all over me. In fact, not a girl, not yet a woman . . . it sums up my twenties perfectly." Emily Atack was flung to fame at just 17, as the girl-next-door character in The Inbetweeners. Almost ten years later, she won over the nation on I'm a Celebrity Get Me out of Here with her cracking impersonations, epic bravery in the Bushtucker trials and general positivity. Now, in her first book, Emily digs deep and reveals the hilarious highs and the heart-breaking lows that rocked the years between. With astonishing courage and her trade-mark humour, she shares stories about her family, first dates (and bad dates), first loves, moments where she's hit rock bottom and how she finally came to realise that it was all going to be okay. Are We There Yet? is a warm, honest, FUNNY book for women of any age who have ever felt they needed to look a certain way or felt uncomfortable in their own skin. It's about life, love, everything grubby and glamorous in between, and ultimately realising that you're good enough. (Also she bought a laptop specifically to write this book so you better believe it's getting down and dirty :D)
Life. The great mystery. What is it? How can we make sense of it? Has it any purpose for us beyond simply the survival of the species? Does God exist? Was Darwin right? These are fundamental and challenging questions, still awaiting satisfactory answers. Are We There Yet? Explores these questions and more.
Did you know God has a secret place? He does, and he wants you to learn the way into the secret place of the Most High. In "Are We There Yet?" Sarah Ramsey uncovers an ancient path in the Tabernacle of Moses that reveals the pattern into God's presence. Though the journey is simple, many people do not know how to get there. Let's make the journey together! It is simply not possible to take this journey incrementally and progressively and not 'get there'; our arrival being understood as a renewed sense and awareness of God's own manifested presence...After having read Sarah's book, the sense of the manifest presence of the Lord has increased in a way that I have long desired. Sarah really does take you there.

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. Revelation 21:5-7 (KJV) 'Jason Bargo's book has elbowed its way into an already crowded field by way of Jason's unabashed passion for the Gospel of Jesus Christ, his thorough work with the Old Testament texts Revelation so heavily depends upon and his willingness to Biblically differ with prior approaches to the Revelation. Agree or disagree, this work is worth investigation.' Robert Franklin Sr. Pastor, Main Street Church Are We There Yet?, from new author Jason Bargo, takes the reader on a guided tour of the book of Revelation, presented in an easy-to-understand format. After years of studying the final book of the Bible, the author felt led to share his ideas with others. An insightful, useful topical reference, Are We There Yet? provides an in-depth look at the events described in the book of Revelation; events that may not be too far off. This is Revelation like you've never seen it before. Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. Revelation 1:3 (KJV)
“Turning to face north, face the north, we enter our own unconscious. Always, in retrospect, the journey north has the quality of dream.” Margaret Atwood, “True North” In this interdisciplinary collection, sixteen scholars from twelve countries explore the notion of the North as a realm of the supernatural. This region has long been associated with sorcerous inhabitants, mythical tribes, metaphysical forces of good and evil, and a range of supernatural qualities. It was both the sacred abode of the gods and a feared source of menacing invaders and otherworldly beings. Whether from the perspective of traditional Jewish lore or of contemporary black metal music, few motifs in European cultural history show such longevity and broad appeal.
