Hope hates her body. She always has. The fact that she’s a graphic artist who manipulates images of women’s bodies for a living only makes matters worse.
Hope’s teenage niece, Lana, has a physique Photoshop can’t touch. But in her dance world, finesse in motion requires mastery of body, which, for Lana, spirals into obsession.
Looking into the mirror, Hope and Lana have in mind a continually altering ideal of beauty defined always as thinner than they are in the moment.
Hope turns to her preternaturally trim friend, Lilith, for help. Comedy ensues as Hope mimics Lilith’s alpha female style, storming through life “solving” her problems and losing weight—that is until her new inauthentic persona leads to catastrophe. At her lowest, Hope meets Joy, a quirky mentor offering ancient truths of physical health and spiritual peace that will change Hope’s and Lana’s lives forever.
Twenty-year-old Meriwether Walker enjoys teaching students of various ages and skills in a one-room schoolhouse. What she hates is the nomadic lifestyle that comes with it as she rotates boarding with families in the community every month. From feeling like an unwanted guest to leaky roofs and bed bugs, she longs for a place to call home.
Unexpectedly she inherits an estate from a devoted uncle. A buyer for the property is already lined up. But Meriwether snatches at the opportunity to put down roots in Trickling Springs, Texas.
The handsome prospective buyer thinks she’s holding out for more money and she finds him rude and offputting. Circumstances cause them to work together and their feelings for each other change. But is he interested in her, or is the real attraction the property and the water rights he needs and she has inherited?
He’s a tall, burly carpenter who will be a great mother someday, with a little unexpected supernatural help, but he’s got a funny way of building a family!
Lloyd has the bedrooms, the bathrooms, the business-from-home, and even the bunny rabbits, but after years of trying, he still doesn’t have the six special needs kids he wants to adopt. What’s his problem? It’s because, unofficially of course, people think Lloyd is crazy. In fact, he is perfectly sane. It’s going to be hard to prove that, however, if his supernatural teapot keeps talking to him!
Follow Jared on a 37,000-mile trip around the world as he…
* Dances with Hasidic Jews in Brooklyn
* Discovers the 330-year-old home of Brother Lawrence
* Burns his clothes at the end of the Camino de Santiago
* Attends the world’s largest church in Seoul
* Visits Westboro Baptist Church
* Tries to stay out of trouble in North Korea
* Meets the Pope and has lunch at the Vatican
* Attempts fire walking (with only minor burns)
While filming a documentary about sex trafficking, Jared and Michelle Brock felt a deep need for prayer in their personal lives. In an effort to learn more about prayer, the couple traveled the globe, exploring the great Judeo-Christian prayer traditions: in mountains and monasteries, in Christian communities and cathedrals, standing up and lying down, every hour and around the clock.
A Year of Living Prayerfully is a fascinating, humorous, globe-trotting exploration of prayer that will help you grow your own prayer life. Jared’s witty reflections on his fast-paced journey will both entertain and inspire you to think about your own prayer journey.
Join Jared on a rollicking modern-day prayer pilgrimage… you’ll never pray the same again.
Bachelor Lloyd Schifflebein strives to adopt six special needs children, start a home business, and find Ms. Right.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
God blessed our family late in life with an adopted special needs child. We prepared for her arrival for months while governmental delays persisted. We even adopted bunny rabbits to be her pets, but the process dragged on literally for years, and all the bunnies eventually went to the big bunny hutch in the sky. Our daughter finally arrived just shy of her third birthday. That was fifteen years ago, and in all that time I have learned that faith in God's mysterious ways, and a large dose of laughter, are necessary for a family to survive and thrive when faced with the unexpected on a regular basis.
You know that thing when you’re in Walmart at noon before you discover you haven’t brushed your teeth? Sarah Parshall Perry gets that. She also gets weird things showing up in her bed, her daughter requesting war paint, and her son crawling into a giant blue sock on Christmas morning. Sometimes, she discovers the kids have locked each other in the dogs’ cages, but at least they’ve stopped getting into trouble for awhile.
According to Perry, “The hardest stuff is the quickest way to God.” And if the systematic destruction of her carefully planned life is any indication, she’s on the fast track to sainthood. A mother of three children, two of whom are on the autism spectrum, she has experienced plenty of ups and downs. But from the chaos of her “ordinary” life, she pulls truth packed with humor, poignancy, and a naked honesty that will help you realize messes make God visible.
“Brokenness is part of our humanity and Sarah Perry gets it. Sand in My Sandwich is her story of living with transparency, grace, humor, and hope. No matter your challenge today, you will find yourself in her story. This book is a must-read for every woman.”–Shannon Royce, president and CEO, ChosenFamilies.org
Here it is.
The whole entire story of the Book of Genesis as told to you by the world’s oldest storyteller, Uncle Bob.
If you think you KNOW the truth behind the Bible Stories you REALLY ought to pick up a copy of this book.
If you are one of those folks who thinks that it is bad manners to giggle a little in church – well, you might want to take a good look at the sample that the Kindle folks let you peek at before you go throwing down any of your hard-earned money. This isn’t exactly a solemn retelling of the Bible. In fact, I guarantee a giggle or two along the way. The fact is this is the story of the Book of Genesis as retold by a country gentleman who read the Bible a couple of times and is doing his level best to retell it in his own words.
Means he takes some liberties with the Gospel.
Or – in the words of Uncle Bob – this here is mostly the truth with only a few lies stirred into the broth for pepper.
Don’t say I did not warn you!
AND – from May 5 to May 12 Uncle Bob’s Red Flannel Bible Camp – The Book of Genesis – usually priced at $4.99 is available at the Kindle Countdown price of $0.99!!!
The good word has NEVER been so cheap before.
