Book Excerpt :

From the #1 New York Times author of Before We Were Yours. When Iola Anne Poole, an old-timer on Hatteras Island, passes away in her bed at ninety-one, the struggling young mother in her rental cottage, Tandi Jo Reese, finds herself charged with the task of cleaning out Iola’s rambling Victorian house. Running from a messy, dangerous past, Tandi never expects to find more than a temporary hiding place within Iola’s walls, but everything changes with the discovery of eighty-one carefully decorated prayer boxes, one for each year, spanning from Iola’s youth to her last days. Hidden in the boxes is the story of a lifetime, written on random bits of paper—the hopes and wishes, fears and thoughts of an unassuming but complex woman passing through the seasons of an extraordinary, unsung life filled with journeys of faith, observations on love, and one final lesson that could change everything for Tandi.

THE BLOCKBUSTER HIT—Over two million copies sold! A New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and Publishers Weekly Bestseller “Poignant, engrossing.”—People • “Lisa Wingate takes an almost unthinkable chapter in our nation’s history and weaves a tale of enduring power.”—Paula McLain Memphis, 1939. Twelve-year-old Rill Foss and her four younger siblings live a magical life aboard their family’s Mississippi River shantyboat. But when their father must rush their mother to the hospital one stormy night, Rill is left in charge—until strangers arrive in force. Wrenched from all that is familiar and thrown into a Tennessee Children’s Home Society orphanage, the Foss children are assured that they will soon be returned to their parents—but they quickly realize the dark truth. At the mercy of the facility’s cruel director, Rill fights to keep her sisters and brother together in a world of danger and uncertainty. Aiken, South Carolina, present day. Born into wealth and privilege, Avery Stafford seems to have it all: a successful career as a federal prosecutor, a handsome fiancé, and a lavish wedding on the horizon. But when Avery returns home to help her father weather a health crisis, a chance encounter leaves her with uncomfortable questions and compels her to take a journey through her family’s long-hidden history, on a path that will ultimately lead either to devastation or to redemption. Based on one of America’s most notorious real-life scandals—in which Georgia Tann, director of a Memphis-based adoption organization, kidnapped and sold poor children to wealthy families all over the country—Lisa Wingate’s riveting, wrenching, and ultimately uplifting tale reminds us how, even though the paths we take can lead to many places, the heart never forgets where we belong. Publishers Weekly’s #3 Longest-Running Bestseller of 2017 • Winner of the Southern Book Prize • If All Arkansas Read the Same Book Selection This edition includes a new essay by the author about shantyboat life.

Book Short Summary:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the bestselling author of Before We Were Yours comes a dramatic historical novel of three young women searching for family amid the destruction of the post–Civil War South, and of a modern-day teacher who learns of their story and its vital connection to her students’ lives. “An absorbing historical . . . enthralling.”—Library Journal Bestselling author Lisa Wingate brings to life startling stories from actual “Lost Friends” advertisements that appeared in Southern newspapers after the Civil War, as newly freed slaves desperately searched for loved ones who had been sold away. Louisiana, 1875: In the tumultuous era of Reconstruction, three young women set off as unwilling companions on a perilous quest: Hannie, a freed slave; Lavinia, the pampered heir to a now destitute plantation; and Juneau Jane, Lavinia’s Creole half sister. Each carries private wounds and powerful secrets as they head for Texas, following roads rife with vigilantes and soldiers still fighting a war lost a decade before. For Lavinia and Juneau Jane, the journey is one of stolen inheritance and financial desperation, but for Hannie, torn from her mother and siblings before slavery’s end, the pilgrimage west reignites an agonizing question: Could her long-lost family still be out there? Beyond the swamps lie the limitless frontiers of Texas and, improbably, hope. Louisiana, 1987: For first-year teacher Benedetta Silva, a subsidized job at a poor rural school seems like the ticket to canceling her hefty student debt—until she lands in a tiny, out-of-step Mississippi River town. Augustine, Louisiana, is suspicious of new ideas and new people, and Benny can scarcely comprehend the lives of her poverty-stricken students. But amid the gnarled live oaks and run-down plantation homes lie the century-old history of three young women, a long-ago journey, and a hidden book that could change everything.

Book Short Summary:

Marianne Williamson's bestselling A Return to Love ended with a prayer in which she asked God to help us "find our way home, from the pain to peace, from fear to love, from hell to Heaven." Now, in this stunning new collection of thoughts, prayers, and rites of passage, Marianne Williamson returns to prayer. Prayer is practical, Williamson tells us. "To look to God is to look to the realm of consciousness that can deliver us from the pain of living." Illuminata brings prayer into our daily lives, with prayers on topics from releasing anger to finding forgiveness, from finding great love to achieving intimacy. There are prayers for couples, for parents, and for children; prayers to mend broken relationships and prayers to overcome obsessive and compulsive love. There are prayers to heal the soul, prayers to heal the body, and prayers for work and creativity. Williamson also gives us prayers for the healing of America, including two prayers that have had powerful effects on audiences at her lectures: a prayer of amends on behalf of European Americans to African-Americans and one to Native Americans. How, Williamson asks, can we expect anyone to forgive when we have made no formal apology? Another section includes rites of passage, ceremonies of light for the signal events in our lives: blessing of the newborn, coming of age, marriage, and death. There is also a ceremony of the elder, for moving into midlife, and a ceremony of divorce, in which a gentle transition is provided for both the couple and their children. "Read my prayers or someone else's," Williamson says. "By all means, create your own." Illuminata is a way to bring prayer into practical use, creating a sweeter, more abundant life for yourself and the people you care for. "No conventional therapy," she says, "can release us from a deep and abiding psychic pain. Through prayer we find what we cannot find elsewhere: a peace that is not of this world."

Book Short Summary:

The compelling, poignant true stories of victims of a notorious adoption scandal—some of whom learned the truth from Lisa Wingate’s bestselling novel Before We Were Yours and were reunited with birth family members as a result of its wide reach From the 1920s to 1950, Georgia Tann ran a black-market baby business at the Tennessee Children’s Home Society in Memphis. She offered up more than 5,000 orphans tailored to the wish lists of eager parents—hiding the fact that many weren’t orphans at all, but stolen sons and daughters of poor families, desperate single mothers, and women told in maternity wards that their babies had died. The publication of Lisa Wingate’s novel Before We Were Yours brought new awareness of Tann’s lucrative career in child trafficking. Adoptees who knew little about their pasts gained insight into the startling facts behind their family histories. Encouraged by their contact with Wingate and award-winning journalist Judy Christie, who documented the stories of fifteen adoptees in this book, many determined Tann survivors set out to trace their roots and find their birth families. Before and After includes moving and sometimes shocking accounts of the ways in which adoptees were separated from their first families. Often raised as only children, many have joyfully reunited with siblings in the final decades of their lives. Christie and Wingate tell of first meetings that are all the sweeter and more intense for time missed and of families from very different social backgrounds reaching out to embrace better-late-than-never brothers, sisters, and cousins. In a poignant culmination of art meeting life, many of the long-silent victims of the tragically corrupt system return to Memphis with the authors to reclaim their stories at a Tennessee Children’s Home Society reunion . . . with extraordinary results. Advance praise for Before and After “In Before and After, authors Judy Christie and Lisa Wingate tackle the true stories behind Wingate’s blockbuster Before We Were Yours, of the orphans who survived the Tennessee Children’s Home Society. With a journalist’s keen eye and a novelist’s elegant prose, Christie and Wingate weave together the stories that inspired Before We Were Yours with the lives that were changed as a result of reading the novel. Readers will be educated, enlightened, and enraptured by this important and flawlessly executed book.”—Pam Jenoff, author of The Orphan’s Tale and The Lost Girls of Paris

Book Short Summary:

Intentionally create a Prayer Life that attracts what you desire, and learn how to stop doubting that your blessings are coming! Receive step-by-step instructions on how to grow deeper spiritual roots by: inviting angels, blessing your spaces, creating a prayer box, living a peace-filled life, and finding your passion. As a bonus, Georgie shares her personal story, including a bedside visit from Jesus while she was in the hospital. During His visit, Georgie experienced a miraculous healing that baffled the doctors. Georgie encourages you to live a peace-filled life, give others your overflow of self-love, embrace yourself daily for being a blessing in this world, and practice the prayer examples in this book until you truly know How to Believe in Answered Prayers. Georgie has learned that there are more angels on earth than there are people. They are always with us, waiting to be asked for their wisdom and help! This book will teach you how to connect with them. God isn't confused, but sometimes we are, and so we need guidance. We are called to learn a lot from nature. Imagine sitting on a river back overlooking a river. See how it flows in one direction? Imagine that your life training has taught you to go against the natural current - to go upstream, give to others when you're depleted, and pretend you are happy and spiritual when that's not how you truly feel. Over time you may start to feel like your spirit is becoming emptier and joy-less. While we struggle against the current, the river of our soul is patiently waiting for us to seek nature's way, live our inherent passion, let life be easy, and attract our good to us. As a society, we have been taught to question when we experience pain, trauma, or grief. We might ask questions like: Where is God, or my Higher Source, in my time of need? , "Why do bad things happen to good people?" , "Why can't my body heal?" , "Why can't my lifestyle improve?" , or "If I was born with a purpose and passion, why is it so hard for me to find it?" In this book, these questions and many more are answered by seeing your life from a higher, more pure perspective. By doing away with all shame, doubt, and feelings of being violated, you can learn how to move out of self-damaging beliefs, and into becoming your true self. You will learn how to start treating your body, mind and spirit as though they are your best friends, so that you can connect with Divine Intelligence. You were born with a readily available Intelligence that beats your heart and digest your food - it's what keeps you alive! You will also discover how to use your intuition as your internal guidance system. If you've ever had a "gut feeling" about something, then you've already experienced your intuition trying to communicate with you. This intuition is real, and needs to be acknowledged. Each chapter of this book will give you detailed instructions on how to help deepen your spiritual life. May you embrace your true self with great curiosity for the mystery and mastery that lies within you. Georgie Anna Holbrook is an internationally recognized Blessing Creator, she interprets the emotions behind health issues, along with being a personal and professional guide. She is a gifted intuitive, whose motto is, "I pray up, show up, and then listen up to how I can guide you into a life you love."

2019 Illumination Book Awards, Bronze Medal in Spirituality 2019 International Book Awards, Finalist: Christianity 2019 Catholic Press Association, Honorable Mention: Family Life Make God a member of your family. Do you struggle to find the right way to integrate prayer into your daily family life? Are you worried your children won’t practice the same faith that has sustained you in times of difficulty? When Jane Knuth inherited the family “prayer list” from her aunt, she decided to continue the tradition of praying regularly with the list of needs and thanks for relatives and friends. But prayer fits itself to every person’s—and every family’s—situation and culture. As Jane learned how to pray in her family and explored the prayer experiences of other families, she discovered a simple truth: the best way to pray with your family is the way that works best for your family. The Prayer List shares the true stories of how families from many faith traditions—Christian, non-Christian, or no defined faith—pray together in meaningful ways. With prompts to inspire your own family’s prayer after each chapter, these stories prove that family prayer can be a path to the intimacy and closeness we long for. It’s like making God a member of the family.

Book Short Summary:

How can we grasp the complex religious lives of individuals such as Peter, an ordained Protestant minister who has little attachment to any church but centers his highly committed religious practice on peace-and-justice activism? Or Hannah, a devout Jew whose rich spiritual life revolves around her women's spirituality group and the daily practice of meditative dance? Or Laura, who identifies as Catholic but rarely attends Mass, and engages daily in Buddhist-style meditation at her home altar arranged with symbols of Mexican American popular religion? Diverse religious practices such as these have long baffled scholars, whose research often starts with the assumption that individuals commit, or refuse to commit, to an entire institutionally framed package of beliefs and practices. Meredith McGuire points the way forward toward a new way of understanding religion. She argues that scholars must study religion not as it is defined by religious organizations, but as it is actually lived in people's everyday lives. Drawing on her own extensive fieldwork, as well as recent work by others, McGuire explores the many, seemingly mundane, ways that individuals practice their religions and develop their spiritual lives. By examining the many eclectic and creative practices -- of body, mind, emotion, and spirit -- that have been invisible to researchers, she offers a fuller and more nuanced understanding of contemporary religion.

Book Short Summary:

When strange, coded messages turn up in the chapel prayer box at Bellevue University, the minister suspects a recent campus death may have been murder, so he enlists the help of amateur sleuths Kathryn Frasier and Cece Goldman to decipher the codes and solve the mystery. But when a couple of young girls get wind of it, they decide to find the killer on their own. Almost everyone on campus has something to hide, and the story fluctuates between the rational search for the truth by the adults, and the occasionally misguided, but surprisingly perceptive, insight of the children.

Book Short Summary:

Is your spiritual life more like a fast-food run than an intimate dinner for two?Whether it’s the busy mother’s wish to be Wonder Woman—minus the metal bra—or battles with an exploding hot water heater, or fighting the “Resolutionary War” of New Year’s Day, Mary Pierce understands the dilemmas of being a woman in today’s 24/7 world. From disorganized misery to extreme organizational mania (she used to refer to her children by their household chores: Cat Box Boy, Dishwasher Girl, and Garbage Can Baby), Pierce deals with our fumbling attempts to grow closer to God, encouraging us as she invites us to laugh, cry, love, embrace life, and pray!In her humorous, conversational style, Pierce laughs at her mistakes and her prayers that seem more like advertising jingles (Lord, I need a break today, and Can you hear me now, Lord?). In Confessions of a Prayer Wimp, you’ll come to understand that faith is less about what you are or do or say, and more about who God is—someone who loves you no matter what you do.

Book Short Summary:

An awakening call to all Christians to prove the omnipotence of our God to the world as we manifest excellent wisdom, provide solutions to teething national and international problems and carry out spectacular exploits that would compel unbelievers to fear God, acknowledge His sovereignty, bow down to worship His majesty and come to the realization that the Most High God rules in the kingdom and affairs of men. This is the challenge that the life and ministry of Daniel pose to Christians today. Imagine a scenario where the king of the most powerful and dreadful nation of that time fell down prostrate, before the young captive Daniel. The king literally idolized him, ordered that an offering of incense be made to Daniel, and exclaimed reverently; “Truly, your God is the God of gods, the Lord of kings and the Revealer of Secrets”. All these happened because to the utter dismay of king Nebuchadnezzar, Daniel, through prayer and God’s gifts revealed and interpreted the king’s untold dream. By this feat, Daniel and his friends were greatly promoted while God’s name was highly glorified and honoured. God made them to excel far above their colleagues. This book further makes us to appreciate that with an adequate knowledge of our God, a readiness to please Him by keeping ourselves pure, a rugged faith, and an unwavering loyalty to Him, there is no limit to which God can use our lives and ministries to prove His majesty, just as He did through Daniel and his companions. By manifesting these traits, the burning furnace was turned to an air-conditioner and the mouths of dreadful lions were locked. This book encourages Christians from all walks of life to prayerfully demonstrate these traits as Daniel did, so that we can impact the world around us positively for God. This book is an expository on how Christians can receive divine guidance regularly and specifically as it carefully unveils the requisite processes, e.g. through God’s Word, by Spirit-filled Counsellors, and overwhelmingly by the Holy Spirit. The author shares his own practical experiences in these regards. It reveals how parents can develop intimacy with their children that would enhance winning them for Christ and help them to fulfil destiny. This is an inevitable book for all who desire excellence in life and ministry as it systematically details the divine steps for the attainment and maintenance of excellence in these respects. The book should be a hot-cake for genuine result-oriented intercessors, as it uses Daniel’s life to expound on how to become an excellent intercessor. Through rugged faith in God, coupled with unrelenting prayers, a Christian can always emerge victorious over fierce trials and enemy gang-ups, to bring glory to God’s Name. This book can be rightly described as a handbook for Christian youths as well as an important guidebook for all Christians. Through the help of the Holy Spirit, it offers in-depth details on: how Christian youths can positively use their energy without manifesting youthful exuberance, conduct themselves wisely in the fear of God, do exercises towards righteousness, be on fire for the Lord and yet be humble and obedient. It shows how they can choose godly companions, become responsible and respectable in the community and in the Church, soar into prominence, and fulfill their God ordained destinies in life. A reviewer described it as a ‘book that is conceived from the womb of the Holy Spirit, timely, apt, and heart-warming.’ Another reviewer referred to it as, ‘an exquisite treasure, a compendium of sorts, from being a Bible study material, a book replete with life cum personal experiences, a prayer manual, and a visibly recognized Holy Spirit inspired Ministry Instruction Manual. The prayer box at the end of each chapter provides a set of prayers, which if thoroughly applied would surely transform the reader into a Daniel in his or her operational base, be it at home, school, work place, church or the society at large.

Book Short Summary:

This book presents theological reflections on the changing nature of church mission and Christian identity within a theology of 'blurred encounter' - a physical, social, political and spiritual space where once solid hierarchies and patterns are giving way to more fluid and in many ways unsettling exchanges. The issues raised and dynamics explored apply to all socially-produced space, thus tending to 'blur' that most fundamental of theological categories - namely urban vs. rural theology. Engaging in a sharper way with some of the helpful but inevitably broad-brush conclusions raised by recent church-based reports (Mission-shaped Church, Faithful Cities), the authors examine some of the practical and theological implications of this research for the issue of effective management and therefore church leadership generally. Speaking to practitioners in the field of practical theology as well as those engaged in theological and ministerial training, key voices encompass dimensions of power and conflict, and identify some of the present and future opportunities and challenges to church/faith-based engagement and leadership arising from blurred encounters. Contributors - practitioners and theorists - cover a wide spectrum of interdisciplinary professional contexts and academic/denominational interests. Contributors include: John Atherton, John Reader, Helen Cameron, Martyn Percy, Malcolm Brown, Karen Lord, Clare McBeath and Margaret Goodall.
