Dodie Osteen, mother of Joel Osteen, gives readers a personal account of her extraordinary life and shares what she has learned about love, faith, and family. As the wife of forty-four years to the late Pastor John Osteen, founder of Lakewood Church, Dodie Osteen stood as a wife, mother, and first lady of the church, even when life felt anything but steady. Today, she continues to stand by her son, Pastor Joel Osteen, and the rest of their family as they lead Lakewood. In this revealing memoir, Dodie shares that her path, though glorious, has not always been easy. She shows an intimate look at such life-altering experiences as contracting polio as a child, raising 5 children, battling cancer, and losing her husband, all with the beautiful heart and sense of humor she displays to thousands at Lakewood and nationwide at Night of Hope events. While recounting her journey, Dodie offers readers meaningful life lessons applicable to their own lives.

One might say that Around the Barn is a befitting title for a book written by an author who spent his childhood living out in the country. The old barn was his iconic shelter and headquarters for playing hide-and-seek or cowboys and Indians, among the neatly stacked bales of hay. When chores were done, it was “off to the barn.” The old barn was also a perfect place for solitude, as the author found no quieter place to think and write. This thinking and writing process often resulted in his imagination working into overdrive. He shared his ideas with peers who lived around his neighborhood, and it was surprising how they adapted to his sense of imaginary logic. His ability to demonstrate multiple scenarios was quite remarkable. Also, with all the livestock available as an audience, the hayloft served as a perfect stage. Several decades have passed since then, and the old barn is long gone. The author still maintains fond childhood memories. These memories include riding to school, both to and from, on the school bus that picked him up every day; graduating from school; going into military service during the Vietnam years; attending college; and of course, the loves he made as well as the times his heart was broken. Never has the author forgotten the security of that old barn. When he speaks of the old barn, his eyes brighten up and a huge smile comes to his face. He wishes he could bring back those childhood days in order to prepare for his next production. By using poetry as his vehicle, Walter A. Wheat prods his audience into mental remembrance with reflections that were experienced in his own life. God is referred to many times as a point of reference. As a Vietnam veteran, Walter is able to give an insight into the feelings and emotions of those who have experienced the realities of war. Not without a sense of humor, Walter can also offer a suitable explanation about “how and when that big fish got away.” The poetry that was written in Around the Barn serves as an avenue to cushion those terrible times when life does not go your way. God knows that every day is not a good day. It is the author’s wish that the readers of Around the Barn strive to put their guards down and look for the true meaning of forgiveness. Let’s, all together, try concentrating on the nice things in life. Walter A. Wheat, MA

A book of poetry filled with simple observations of the world around me as well as complex feelings of love and life. I enjoy everything from looking at Grass, or a field of Daises, to a Wedding dress hanging in a window. My poems are written from the perspective of someone whose life was almost lost multiple times. Undergoing five heart surgeries by the age of ten, the next heartbeat was not promised, much less another day or year. Each birthday is a gift. I'm usually quiet but always curious about how things affect my world. I am always grateful for life and the things that fill my life. I've always been involved in theater and all aspects of performing arts. I received my bachelors in Theatre Arts from University of West Florida in Pensacola, FL and had a great time living a dream in the arts all through college. I still attend and support our local community theaters. I still live in FL with my family. My mother's a Cardiology Nurse Practitioner. My father's a Retired Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel. My sister's an elementary school teacher. I have 2 spoiled dogs and a cat who thinks he pays the mortgage because he runs the place. I walk daily. I love trees. I love stopping and talking with the neighbors. I love all kinds of movies and books. You can usually find me at the bookstore hanging out or playing a game of chess on a Sunday afternoon.

“...entertaining and edifying and will inspire anyone who dreams of working in wine, or just dreams of wine.”— Brian Keyser, Co-Author Composing The Cheese Plate; Owner, Casellula Cheese & Wine “Written with great passion and rare candor, Kara Joseph’s If Wine Could Talk invites us to grapple with universal lessons of life while taking a journey into the world of wine. Part memoir, part wine education, this delightful and inspiring page-turner will keep you up way past your bedtime.” — Lisa Denning, The Wine Chef Blog Unlike most soon-to-be college graduates, Kara Joseph found something in wine she couldn't quite explain. It had nothing to do with the penny wine nights down at the local pub or the off-campus mixers. It called to her. It brought people together. The mystery and unshakable feeling that it was more than just a drink led her on a journey toward becoming a sommelier, taking on Napa Valley and New York City, and finding the answers in wine she desperately yearned to discover. Pursuing wine as her passion brought Kara adventures, struggles, and an insatiable desire to understand wine to the core. If Wine Could Talk intertwines two stories, one of a young girl's narrative molded by wine and the other being the answers to all your need-to-know wine questions. Follow Kara's story of defying limiting beliefs, choosing a challenging but rewarding path, and sharing the soul of the vine. So pour yourself a glass and dive into a tale that only an unconventional wine-filled life could create, and begin your own journey of wine discovery with an education on all the wine basics. You might even impress your friends at the next wine tasting.
