What if yesterday never happened? What if you were free from your old hurts, trauma, sadness, and mistakes? What if you could be healthier, happier, and freer to be yourself? What if your life could be transformed just by changing your mind? It can. Drawing on the call in Romans 12 to "be transformed by the renewing of your mind," pastor and speaker John F. Westfall shows how you can overcome yesterday in order to live with hope and gratitude today. A self-described "world champion negative thinker," Westfall knows how hard it can be to let go of the past. With great compassion and practical advice, he motivates you to allow the Holy Spirit to change the way you think, releasing you from negative thoughts and destructive patterns. Ready to leave worry, anxiety, and regret behind? Then you're ready to live like there's no yesterday.
In our Christian faith, were either drawing closer to God and to His purposes for our lives or drawing further away. Like an athlete in training, there can be no middle ground. - from the introduction Steve Wisniewski spent thirteen seasons playing offensive guard for the Oakland Raiders. Considered one of the NFLs dirtiest players, Steve was aggressive and tenacious, proudly wearing the silver and black. But everything changed when his eyes were opened to the importance of following Gods call for his life. As the ugly duckling of his family, Steve overcame incredible odds. He was transformed from a timid boy, whose family was shattered by divorce, into a committed husband and father. He was physically changed from being crippled by an automobile accident and became an All Pro football player. Once a mean competitor, he is now a minister of the Gospel. Steve didnt let the odds define him; he defied the odds and started fulfilling his destiny! In Hand on the Line, Steve transparently shares his powerful story that will encourage you on the journey to becoming a Godly man. If God could heal Steves past, transform his present, and direct his future, the same God can accomplish amazing things through you!

"As I read "Conversations with the Mysterious One," I was enthralled and captivated by the poetic and powerfully, symbolic word-play. It moves from sensitive, gentle prodding to electrifying and powerful truths, all wrapped in a wonderful energy of deep wisdom.--Sri Jothimayi Ma.
Ben Walton is the guy everyone can turn to. He's been a shoulder to cry on and a helping hand for all his friends as they've each met the love of their life and embarked upon their happily-ever-after. He's the only one who's still single. He lost the first and only love of his life when he was still only eighteen years old. He never thought he'd get Charlotte back, and he never thought he'd want another woman. He should have learned by now—never say never. He hasn't heard from Charlotte in months, but he believes that she meant it when she said she was coming back—to the lake and to him. Even though he could never see himself with another woman, there is another woman who could happily see herself with him. He hired Angel to run the lodge for him. They have so much in common and she's a beautiful woman—but she's not Charlotte. If you’re reading this, I assume that you’ve been waiting for Ben’s happily-ever-after for a while. I hope you’ll enjoy seeing him finally find the happiness he so deserves. The Summer Lake series follows a group of friends from a small lakeside town in the California hills.

"I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear." - Martin Luther King, Jr. Jesus gave us a new Commandment before he left. He told us to "Love One Another." Martin Luther King Jr. had it right: hate is too great a burden. Somehow, some of us have lost our way. The bible says, "God is Love," "Love your neighbor," and "Love your enemy." What can we do to show the world our love for each other, rather than the hate of the world? When we fill our hearts with the love of Christ, nothing can stop us. We need to refocus our mind to love one another and lift each other up rather than tearing each other down. Get it Now!

As coaches and leaders it is easy to focus so much attention on others that we can lose sight of ourselves. Burnout, fatigue, and health issues are all too common occurrences. Coaching can be a tremendous amount of stress, and sometimes if you're not in control of it problems arise. Long hours, poor eating habits, loss of family time are just a few examples that can cause you to become out of balance. This book is about maintaining a healthy balance. I have had the opportunity to observe successful coaches and some not so successful. I know coaches who love their job and some who hate what they do. I've worked with people who were consumed so much that they never took a vacation and others who seemed to be on permanent vacation. Coaches who are in balance and feel good do a better job. The purpose of this collection is to provide you with an instrument to help you maintain proper balance and motivation.
I can hear the whisper now That has chased me all these years: “Here my girl, this way!” And like a talisman, It has guarded me all this while, From the rough weather To the wrong company In the journey of life. And in life after death, Two things matter – The road and the companion; The destination is Largely decided by destiny.
When a triangle of friends loses one of its members, the surviving friends piece together the remnants of a man's surprisingly secret life. It all starts with a tragic message-Brian "Buddy" Collins has died of a massive heart attack. Buddy's sister, Sami, shares the devastating news with his best friend and her former lover, Rick. In the days following the funeral, Sami and Rick begin to peel back the layers of Buddy's secret life, discovering a man torn apart by betrayal, loneliness and despair. Buddy has left behind a manuscript in which he shares his feelings of being deserted by his wife and 9-year-old son. The manuscript includes details of Buddy's chance encounter with an enchanting young Tunisian woman named Jawhera who is suffering from a seemingly mysterious illness. In her presence, Buddy is rejuvenated and re-gains his will to live-only to learn that his new love is in the final stages of a terminal disease. Author Ayadh Farooq captures a fleeting time in the life of two very different people as Buddy and Jawhera seek to console one another in their time of need. A Magical Moment also takes two surviving friends on a journey of discovery toward a shocking conclusion.
