Explanation of the Book:

This is a book of overcoming grace and peace through Jesus when the cards seem stacked against you. When people seem mean and you have given up on being happy, that would be the time to read this book. We all get discouraged and the points I want to make in this book are that crabby and miserable are choices. You have to decide if you want to experience life or just exist. Deuteronomy is an excellent example of this After 40 years of wandering and grumbling Moses asked his people do you want to enter the Promised Land or do you want to stay in the wilderness? He said "I am a dying man I am imploring you to look to God and get it right." This would be what I am trying to achieve through this book. I want you to know that I understand grumbling, complaining and hopelessness. I also understand freedom in Christ and want to offer it to you. James 1: 2-4 "Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."

Explanation of the Book:

A single father. A young teacher. A straight up romance. George Smith just wants his simple life to go back to being simple. After narrowly saving his family’s dive bar in tiny Beauclaire, North Carolina from demise, things are finally starting to simmer down—until his troubled son comes to live with him. Clay Johnson, Beauclaire High School’s new music teacher, can’t wait to educate young minds. But when he meets George during a parent-teacher conference, he realizes just how far he’s willing to go to make parents happy. It isn’t bad enough that George has been forced into the role of father when he least expected it. Things between he and Clay heat up quickly while they spend extracurricular time together—and George can’t help wondering if Clay sees him as a different type of daddy. Though Clay can’t deny his connection with George, he also can’t ignore the fact that George is a student’s parent—and as straight as the one road leading out of Beauclaire. Still, the more time George spends with Clay, and the steamier things get between them, he can’t shake the feeling that his life isn’t nearly as simple—nor as straight—as he once thought. Can they resist their desires, or will a relationship lead them to straight up trouble? Straight Up Trouble is third in the Southern Comforts series of small town, southern romances. Though each can be read and enjoyed alone, they fit together like bacon and eggs when read as part of the series. If you like your romances with healthy sides of schmoop sweeter than syrup, pairings queerer than a two-dollar bill, and daddy issues so dirty you’ll need to be baptized after reading them, you’ll love this latest book from Garett Groves!

Explanation of the Book:

Between Television, Movies, Books, Newspapers, the Internet and even the person next door... today's moral values have been compromised to the extent that, for most people, they no longer agree with God's values and God's Laws. You have people today who are so concerned with being "politically correct" and "not offending anyone" that they see SIN all around them and say or do nothing. So others come to believe that the SIN is "acceptable," even "normal" behavior. This book will attempt to show the average Christian what God really expects... and what he really rejects, when dealing with many of today's most confusing questions. Each question will be covered in one chapter, so the answers will be quick and easy to find, allowing Bible scriptures to guide the reader to their answers.

Explanation of the Book:

Vision of Hope is an important contribution in the growing number of stories by recovering addicts, for its well-written account in terms that are touching yet honest, in both the low points and high points of her story. Perhaps most significantly, Leilani Fabers life story brings us to a conclusion that includes a current life and an optimistic future that should make her, her children and her mother proud. It literally offers hope for anyone who has found their life severely impacted by meth or other drugs and demonstrates that despite the damage done by meth use, with hard work, redemption is possible and a new life awaits anyone willing to make that commitment.

Book four in The Speakeasy series Love, served straight up. Malcolm Elliott has been keeping secrets. Helping his mom through a financial crisis has nearly emptied his bank account and his kitchen cupboards, despite his thriving career with Corporate Equality Campaign. Malcolm is also bothered by his inability to tell the most important people in his life that he identifies as gray ace. Stuart Morgan has a secret of his own. Though years have passed since the tattooed chef fled the Mormon church in Utah for New York, he's never truly come to terms with the fetish that ruined that rigid but outwardly perfect life. Experience has also taught Stuart that keeping his love of lacy things under wraps is safer than telling the truth. After Malcom's boss, Carter, hires Stuart's restaurant to cater a gala fundraising event, the strait-laced Malcolm is thrown together with badass biker Stuart. Despite their differences and a couple of false starts, the men discover they work well together and a friendship quickly forms. As Malcolm's feelings for Stuart deepen, his sexuality awakens, but he remains tight-lipped about his problems. And though Stuart grows more and more attached to Malcolm, he remains fearful of confessing his fetish. When both of their secrets are finally exposed, they find themselves at a crossroads in which they must choose between playing it safe or finally coming clean to the person they love.

Explanation of the Book:

The Humals. Humanoid Aliens. They dominated the spiral arm millennia ago then vanished without trace. Man had found traces of their presence, reverse-engineered their technology and speculated endlessly about their demise. But no one really knew what had happened. No one knew why they had disappeared or why so few traces of them remained. For James Hamilton the Humals were not something he concerned himself about. Not, that is, until a billionaire philanthropist seeks him out with a proposition he can't ignore. It started out as the offer of a lifetime. A way to finally end all his financial concerns and to do something good for humanity into the bargain. But as Hamilton was well aware, if something sounds too good to be true then it usually means trouble. Suspicious, Hamilton fears the worst and plans accordingly but even he is unprepared for the events that will follow. With precious few allies and more questions than answers, Hamilton must desperately try to piece together the clues in order to understand what is going on before it is too late. For what starts out as a journey for the betterment of mankind may well sow the seeds of its destruction.

Explanation of the Book:

We all have treasures within. When we explore those treasures, “we offer hope to a dying world.” Treasures of hope will release so many others to share their experiences without guilt, shame or condemnation. Even the soft spoken will begin to allow their stories to burst forth like thunder. In order to become an overcomer, deliverance of some sort has to take place. We have each been given a gift, not a gift of gab, but a gift of the word of our testimony. When we use our testimonies to glorify God we show others that though there will always be “tests” the “monies” are never too far behind. Move outside of yourself and inspire others to live. Come out of bondage to secrecy.
