DISCOVER:: How to Make New Year’s Resolutions That Actually Stick!

Tell me if this sounds familiar: “The Ball” is about to drop on New Year’s Eve. 2014 promises a brand new year, full of potential and infinite possibilities. So you make a list of the ways that this year will be different. Then what happens? Usually by late January you’ve already given up on your goals and moved on to something else.

The question is:”Why do people fail with their New Year’s resolutions?”

The problem stems from what you expect to happen over the next 12 months. Instead of trying to make a gradual change, it’s easy to approach the New Year with an “all or nothing” mindset. You want things to happen, so you create a series of lofty goals that can’t possibly be achieved in a short amount of time. And ultimately this leads to failure.

The Secret to a Successful New Year’s Resolution?

Is there a “secret” to making 2014 the best year ever?

The answer is simple: Focus on one major goal (or a few) for the next year and then develop a series of habits that works towards achieving it. Instead of trying to change your entire life in January, the simpler strategy is to adopt a 12-month plan where you’re making constant improvements. You’ll still get to set fun goals for the next year, but with the following plan you’ll succeed because you’re simply focusing on making one positive change at a time.

If you’re about to start 2014 and want to actually make a change in your life, “Resolutions That Stick!” will help you turn any major goal into a concrete, achievable plan.

Leave It to Chance: A Novel

Leave It to Chance: A Novel

Sherri Sand

Sand has written a lovely first novel. She really nails the mother/child dynamic here, not only with Sierra and her children, but with Sierra and her own mother. Unique secondary characters and a hunky hero with issues of his own round out the novel and make it a truly wonderful reading experience. I highly recommend this book, and look forward to future offerings from this talented new author.

Jennifer AlLee

Single mom of three, Sierra Montgomery is desperate to find a new job to keep from having to move back home and be smothered to death by her mother’s good intentions and overbearing love. So when Sierra inherits Chance, a quirky old gelding she doesn’t have a clue what to do with, she thinks her best bet may be to sell the horse to cover another month’s rent-a decision that devastates her children.

Enter Ross Morgan, a handsome landscaper who just happens to have an empty barn and fenced pasture, perfect for an old horse to live out his days as the pet of three wounded kids. Ross develops a soft spot for eldest child Braden and he just might have one for Braden’s mother. But what he doesn’t have is time for distractions-he’s got a landscaping business to run and nursery plants to tend.

But Sierra has a secret. She’s terrified of horses and—thanks to her past—wary of attractive men. Yet seeing the way her angry son idolizes Ross and adores that old horse forces Sierra to confront her fears. Will she remain distrustful and self-reliant, or will she seek help from God and those who love her?

Anthony Bourdain: The Kindle Singles Interview (Kindle Single)

Anthony Bourdain: The Kindle Singles Interview (Kindle Single)

David Blum

Anthony brings the truth to the table. He’s an intelligent, honest, down-to-earth man who’s unafraid to say what he thinks or feels with the exception of an occasional white lie here and the there. A.B. keeps it real on air, paper, and reality. Hats off to a simple yet interesting interview.

Silvia Hart

From his drug-addled youth (“I wanted to be a heroin addict long before I could get my hands on any heroin”) to the crowd-sourcing of food criticism (“the chickens have gnawed their way through the chicken wire”), author-chef-television host Anthony Bourdain lets loose on himself and the food world in a wide-ranging and provocative Kindle Singles Interview. In between jet-setting expeditions for new episodes of his hit CNN series, “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown,” the bad-boy chef sat down recently for lunch at a New York bistro and served up an extended conversation, medium rare, covering all aspects of Bourdain’s extraordinary life.

The interview was conducted by David Blum, who works for Amazon as the editor of Kindle Singles. Blum began his career as a staff reporter for The Wall Street Journal, and has been the editor-in-chief of The Village Voice, the New York Press and 02138 Magazine. He was previously a writer and editor at The New York Times Magazine, and a contributing editor at New York and Esquire magazines. He has written two books: “Flash in the Pan: The Life and Death of an American Restaurant” (1992), and “Tick…Tick…Tick…: The Long Life & Turbulent Times of 60 Minutes” (2004).

Better Dads, Stronger Sons: How Fathers Can Guide Boys to Become Men of Character

Better Dads, Stronger Sons: How Fathers Can Guide Boys to Become Men of Character

Rick Johnson

How often in your life do you find such value in a book that you purchase extra copies to give away? I recently purchased my second order of four.
I so enjoy giving this to friends and clients with Boy(s).
There is no other job or challenge harder than parenting and one that you have virtually zero training. EVERY Father should read and re-read this book, period.

Michael J. Coolbroth

The relationship between a father and a son is like none other. Dads have a God-given role to protect and provide for their families, always striving to teach their sons the life skills they’ll need to grow into honorable men. But many dads struggle with feelings of inadequacy regarding their fathering abilities. They want to be better dads.

Rick Johnson can show them how. In this insightful and practical book, Johnson shows how fathers can be equipped and inspired to be positive role models for their sons. He stresses the significance of male bonding, discipline, and spiritual leadership; discusses important topics such as sexual purity, respect, and self-discipline; and reveals the top ten mistakes to avoid as a father.

From commitment and courage to honesty and humility, Better Dads, Stronger Sons helps men strive to be the dads God designed them to be–so their sons can grow to be everything they are meant to be.

Bestselling Author and Theologian Explores
the Life and Ministry of Elijah

Known for his in-depth yet accessible teaching, beloved author R. T. Kendall delves into the life of one of the most famous and most relatable persons in the Old Testament: Elijah.

Drawn from a popular sermon series Dr. Kendall preached at Westminster Chapel in London, this discussion taken from 1 and 2 Kings traces the prophet’s life and ministry from his first appearance and his confrontation with King Ahab until the time he is taken up to heaven. Kendall shows how even this revered prophet–an ordinary man with many imperfections–was used tremendously by God. A great study for both individuals and groups.

The Power of Persistence

The Power of Persistence

Michael Catt

This book is great. I am only about 100 pages in and I can already tell it is going to be one of my favorites. The book is very good at relaying the message that there is no such thing as a model prayer, but rather a model prayer life. The Lord Jesus showed us the perfect prayer life to follow and this book will help with understanding how best to pray to our Lord Jesus.

Darryl Cook

Michael Catt, senior pastor of Sherwood Baptist Church and executive producer of the Georgia congregation’s runaway hit films Facing the Giants and Fireproof, is often asked why God has blessed their efforts in such a remarkable way. His answer is simple:
“We have a praying church that is walking in unity. We pray over every ministry and every decision.”

The Power of Persistence is Catt’s invitation to a prayer-without-ceasing way of life. Stories from scripture and personal ministry experiences attest to the prophetic and profitable work of prayer. Engaging chapters on prayers of penitence, learning from the Psalmist, praying for children, the lost, and in response to spiritual warfare guide us to a break through level of communication with the God who is eager to hear our cries and accomplish His work through us.

Tatlock laces the pages with secrets waiting to be uncovered. Will life go on for Neil Sadler and Mary Beeken? Don’t plan on putting this one down. Things We Once Held Dear–a reader’s delight from the writer’s writer.

Diane H. Pitts

The foundations of Neil Sadler’s small-town life are rocked by the suspicious death of Helen Syfert, the mother of Neil’s friend Mary. Now, years later, living and working in New York City, Neil struggles to recover from a more recent loss. Intent on repairing his shattered world, Neil returns to his hometown of Mason, Ohio, where he reconnects with Mary.

Their once-close relationship hadn’t been strong enough to survive the tragedy that overtook Mary’s family, yet what drove them apart years ago now seems to be drawing them back together. And yet, the mystery of Helen’s death remains unsolved. To bring closure will mean facing old truths—hard truths—and discovering some new ones.

I loved this book and would highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good high-drama novel.

Annie B

What it means to be a mother, what it takes to save a life.

Lucy never confessed her love to her best friend, Harlan, before he passed away. Two months after his funeral, she is haunted by the power of things left unsaid. But then she receives the first of his e-mails arranged to be sent after his death. So begins the year that everything changes—Lucy’s watershed year.

In an e-mail, Harlan says something that consumes her: he’s certain Lucy is destined for motherhood. In her grief, she suddenly rediscovers hope, journeying to Russia to adopt a four-year-old boy. When she meets her son, Mat, for the first time, she realizes he’s also mending a wounded heart and is just as lost as she is. Together, they learn to trust, each helping the other to heal.

But just as they’re welcoming their new normal, Mat’s father comes to America to reclaim his son and reveals the truth about Mat’s past that might shatter Lucy’s fragile little family forever.

Susan Schoenberger’s breathtaking and powerful story of love, loss, redemption, and what it means to be a mother will leave you in awe as Lucy, in the depths of her greatest despair, somehow finds her greatest joy and embraces the beauty of second chances.

Synopsis to Amish Knit Lit Circle:
Granny Weaver believes women are stronger spun together, just like the wool she spins. But will her Amish knitting circle snap if spun with women from the Smicksburg Baptist Church? Granny’s believes they can be knit together for a worthy cause: knitting hats, gloves and scarves to the growing homeless population across the USA. So Granny invites:

Colleen, a young woman living at Forget-Me-Not Manor, a refuge for homeless mothers.
Janice, a burnt out pastor’s wife…or a women going through the change of life.
Marge, a new neighbor learning to live off-the-grid, whose husband fears her new-found faith.
Suzy, who will teach knitting with needles, but is distressed over her aging dog’s health.

Granny does many “casting off” prayers that her English friends will bond with Ella, Ruth, Lizzie, Lavina, Maryann, and Fannie, and not unravel the knitting circle she holds so dear.

Hazardous Duty: Squeaky Clean Mysteries, Book 1 (Christian mystery)

Christy Barritt

I chose this book because by being a Christian mystery I knew it would not have bad language or sexual scenes. This book was a good clean full of suspense read. I highly recommend it.

Brenda Elkins

Buying a gun to kill your wife: $3,000
Hiring Trauma Care to clean afterward: $1,500
Having that same cleaner uncover evidence that frames you: Priceless

On her way to completing a degree in forensic science, Gabby St. Claire drops out of school and starts her own crime scene cleaning business. “Yeah, that’s me,” she says, “a crime scene cleaner. People waiting in line behind me who strike up conversations always regret it.”

When a routine cleaning job uncovers a murder weapon the police overlooked, she realizes that the wrong person is in jail. But the owner of the weapon is a powerful foe . . . and willing to do anything to keep Gabby quiet.

With the help of her new neighbor, Riley Thomas, a man whose life and faith fascinate her, Gabby plays the detective to make sure the right person is put behind bars. Can Riley help her before another murder occurs?

File updated July 12, 2013

“Christy Barritt’s novel, Hazardous Duty, is a delightful read from beginning to end. The story’s fresh, engaging heroine with an unusual occupation hooked me, and I couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend Hazardous Duty.”

—Colleen Coble Author of Fire Dancer, book one of the Smoke Jumpers Series

Editorial Reviews
Captivating, entertaining, and downright funny, this book will keep you reading until the satisfying ending. Unique characters capture your heart and have you rooting for them from the beginning. Gabby St. Claire is truly a breath of fresh air. (Susan Sleeman The Christian Suspense Zone)

Christy Barritt created one lovable and unique character. Readers will fall in love with Gabby from page one with her laugh out loud scenes and sarcastic humor. This mystery was fun to read as well as to solve. Up until the very end, I wasn’t too sure who the real suspect was in the book. I’m not sure if Gabby St. Claire will morph into a book series, but I’m sure readers will want to meet her again at future crime cleaning scenes. (Tyora Moody Faithwebbin)

If you like murder mysteries and suspense with a chick-lit feel, you’ll want to read this one! (Michelle Sutton michellesutton.net)

“The next time you’re temped to watch CSI reruns, read this book instead! Spunky, sassy Gabby St. Claire sparkles in this new series. She’ll keep you turning the pages.” (Siri Mitchell Sporting the Faith Newsletter)

“In this witty novel, chick lit meets mystery in the show-tune singing Gabby, creating a fun whodunit where you just don’t know who killed the woman or which guy you like for the heroine. There’s the changeable Detective Parker or the sweet guy-next-door-with-a-secret Riley for Gabby, and who but the would-be Senator husband would want the murder victim dead? Hazardous Duty will take you on a ride through twists, turns, quirks, acorn brownies, and spiritual questions that keep Gabby guessing. She’s a character you’re guaranteed to love, and the plot is entertaining and fast paced.” (Roseanna White Christian Review of Books)
