Explanation of the Book:

Still Standing reveals how an unlikely governor is sparking a whole new kind of politics—and introduces the exciting possibilities that lie ahead. As the rookie Republican governor of deep-blue Maryland, Larry Hogan had already beaten some daunting odds. A common-sense businessman with a down-to-earth style, he had won a long-shot election the Washington Post called "a stunning upset." He'd worked with cops and neighborhood leaders to quell Baltimore's worst rioting in 47 years. He'd stared down entrenched political bosses to save his state from fiscal catastrophe, winning praise from Democrats, Republicans and independents. But none of that prepared him for the life-threatening challenge he would have to face next: a highly aggressive form of late-stage cancer. Could America's most popular governor beat the odds again? The people of Maryland, with their "Hogan Strong" wristbands, were certainly pulling for him, sending him back to the governor's office in a landslide. As Governor Hogan began his second term cancer-free, his next challenge went far beyond Maryland: bringing our divided country together for a better future. And in 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic changed that future forever, Hogan was once again called to rely upon his bold, open-minded approach to problem-solving to lead and serve in a time of unprecedented turmoil. In his own words and unique, plain-spoken style, Larry Hogan tells the feel-good story of a fresh American leader being touted as the "anti-Trump Republican." A lifelong uniter at a time of sharp divisions. A politician with practical solutions that take the best from all sides. An open-hearted man who has learned important lessons from his own struggles in life. As we face a future full of questions, Hogan offers some surprising answers. Still Standing is a timely reminder that perseverance in the face of unexpected obstacles is at the heart of the American spirit.

Explanation of the Book:

When Clara Delany walks into the Aces High Motorcycle Club’s hangout, she’s hit rock bottom. She’s hiding her car from the repo man, she has less than two dollars in her bank account and the only employment she can get is delivering messages for a criminal. All because of a man. Therefore, she’s sworn off them. And then she meets West “Buck” Hardy, president of the Aces High MC. Buck also meets her, and the minute he does, he makes it clear (to everyone but Clara) that they’re starting something. Since Clara doesn’t get that message, she decides to leave Buck and sort out her life in order to come back to him clean. She’s not gone but hours before life hits Clara with another blow. Which means Buck and his boys have to ride in and save the day. After that, Buck makes no bones about where they stand. But does he?

Explanation of the Book:

Growing up in a prairie farm family, with a very close-knit church community, Paul Vollmin is raised to believe that a Christian should be different. But somehow, even though the Bible tells him that he has changed when he’s accepted Jesus as his savior, he doesn’t feel changed. And as Paul enters a rebellious stage, he starts to indulge his own personal failures, losing touch with his faith and living lie after lie. One day, as a young husband and father, he just can’t sustain it any longer and finds himself hospitalized for severe depression and considering suicide as a viable way out. Still Standing is Paul’s personal story of coming to terms with the past and present in light of a faith in Jesus Christ. Be forewarned, his journey is no idealized picture of what a Christian should look like, but a discovery of how a real life, warts and all, can be transformed by a real God. In frank and frequently very funny fashion, Still Standing provides full disclosure in its chronicle of God reaching into the darkest corners of a man’s being, to bring light and healing to a life of faith gone wrong.

Explanation of the Book:

Still Standing gives direction to anyone facing challenges or difficult situations in life. It draws wisdom and direction from my personal experiences, the experiences of others, compilations of short stories, lyrics of songs by popular song writers and artistes, poems, quotes, movies and ultimately the infallible Word of God (the Holy Bible), with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Oozing with positivity, this is the kind of book that one should have within easy reach. It reads like a trusted guide to the journey of life; a sort of 'chicken soup' remedy for life's trials and struggles. Its inspirational anecdotes are certainly good for the body and good for the soul. At the heart of its success is its practical simplicity and common-sense approach; it is a quick read and very memorable. Long after you put the book down the words still resonate and the section titles read as bite-size daily inspirations. Bible quotations have been drawn from various translations for clarity and simplicity. The language style is informal; making it extremely easy to read (you most likely will not need to pull out a dictionary!). It is broadly divided into two parts: Part 1 "Need to Know" and Part 2 "Need to Do" and made up of thirteen chapters; each chapter is a "flipped light switch" that floods our lives with warmth and brightness of the truth from God's Words unveiling to the reader, nuggets vital to living victoriously through life's challenges. It answers the "what?", "why?" and most importantly, the "how?" question

Explanation of the Book:

We often hear how our adult lives are influenced by what happens in our childhood. Does this mean someone who experiences tragedy early is doomed to a less than successful life? If so, is there any way to change one’s perceived destiny? Sheila P. Watkins’s novel, Still Standing: On the Word of God, is the story of Sharde, who began her young life with the death of her mother at her father’s hand. She was placed in her grandparents’ hands and taken away from the home she and her brother knew. As a result she experienced abandonment issues and sought to make her life one of purpose. Even when her dad got out of prison, Sharde still had the same issues, plus having to become a second mom to her eight brothers and sisters. Sharde knew the challenge before her and was determined not to live a life of poverty. She wanted to become a teacher and make her life one of purpose, with the ability to help others as her teachers had done for her. Still Standing: On the Word of God shows one can live a worthwhile life after a tragic beginning. But it isn’t always easy. One needs people who believe in him and her. And as Sharde discovers, it requires belief and faith in God and his Word. With him, all things are possible. No matter what your beginnings.
