A Taste of Hot Apple Cider: Words to Encourage and Inspire (Powerful Stories of Faith, Hope, and Love Book 1)

N. J. Lindquist

Pull up a nice, warm, cozy chair and enjoy some Hot Apple Cider with us.

Move in closer. That’s it. We’ll all share our stories together, like a group of close friends. Stories of heartbreak and redemption—trouble and overcoming—questioning our faith and embracing it—and, most of all, finding hope at the end of every path.

There’s just nothing like a circle of warm friends to share life with. All 15 of us will take turns opening up our hearts to you—sharing little pieces of ourselves. Come join us.

We’ll even include discussion questions so you can reflect on our stories or explore the themes with a group.

Our bigger Hot Apple Cider anthologies, which have won a number of awards,have nearly 90,000 print copies in circulation. They’re also now available as ebooks with accompanying Discussion Guides.

“In the tradition of Chicken Soup for the Soul, these delightful readings are like a cozy cup of hot cider. Settle in for a moment of warmth and reflection.” –BRIAN C. STILLER, Global Ambassador for the World Evangelical Alliance

“Sometimes all you need is a reminder that there is something good in the world.” –MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW

In the foreword, British Columbia author and speaker Grace Fox says, “Through poems, fiction, and nonfiction alike, [the writers] remind readers that the struggles we face are common to everyone. Their honest descriptions of wrestling with cancer, caring for and losing aging parents, dealing with a spouse’s dementia, moving beyond one’s fear to tell neighbours about Jesus, and more, show us that hope is very much alive.”

Breaking Free From Fear: Live your life knowing God is in Control.

Breaking Free From Fear: Live your life knowing God is in Control.

J.M Miller

We all have fears that are weighing us down. It can feel like fear has us prisoner and there is no escape. No matter how far you run, there is no getting away from what you fear.

Fear can make us worry and lead to sleepless nights. Fear can slow us down; we can become tired, depressed, and even jealous, as life seems so easy for others.

We all know too well that all we have to do is face up to fear, but often even that thought can be fearful in itself. We can end up avoiding all situations that don’t feel comfortable, meaning, we have a fear free life, but not a happy one.

Fear in its basic form is the absence of God. When we fear, we doubt Gods plan for our life; we doubt that we will be good enough for that person, that job, that competition.

Breaking free from fear means that we choose to walk in faith, we may look down, and there is only one set of footsteps, but this is not to say that we are alone. We are never alone. What we desire that is aligned with spirit is already on its way, but we need to start walking in that direction.

In this book, I will share with you the antidote to fear and how you can strengthen it, to make a shift in your thinking. When you overcome the things that are holding you back, you can begin to live the life that you have always dreamt of living.

Breaking Free From Fear will not be easy; it will take courage and faith, but I invite you to take this journey with me. By the end of the book, God will shine a light on your life that will illuminate your path so that you can walk without fear towards your destiny.

Scroll up and invest in your future today, and tomorrow will be a brighter day.

Brain Rules for Baby (Updated and Expanded): How to Raise a Smart and Happy Child from Zero to Five

Brain Rules for Baby (Updated and Expanded): How to Raise a Smart and Happy Child from Zero to Five

John Medina

What’s the single most important thing you can do during pregnancy? What does watching TV do to a child’s brain? What’s the best way to handle temper tantrums? Scientists know.

In his New York Times bestseller Brain Rules, Dr. John Medina showed us how our brains really work—and why we ought to redesign our workplaces and schools. Now, in Brain Rules for Baby, he shares what the latest science says about how to raise smart and happy children from zero to five. This book is destined to revolutionize parenting. Just one of the surprises: The best way to get your children into the college of their choice? Teach them impulse control.

Brain Rules for Baby bridges the gap between what scientists know and what parents practice. Through fascinating and funny stories, Medina, a developmental molecular biologist and dad, unravels how a child’s brain develops – and what you can do to optimize it.

You will view your children—and how to raise them—in a whole new light. You’ll learn:

Where nature ends and nurture begins
Why men should do more household chores
What you do when emotions run hot affects how
your baby turns out, because babies need to feel safe
above all
TV is harmful for children under 2
Your child’s ability to relate to others predicts her
future math performance
Smart and happy are inseparable. Pursuing your child’s
intellectual success at the expense of his happiness
achieves neither
Praising effort is better than praising intelligence
The best predictor of academic performance is not
IQ. It’s self-control
What you do right now—before pregnancy, during pregnancy, and through the first five years—will affect your children for the rest of their lives. Brain Rules for Baby is an indispensable guide.

When We Were the Kennedys: A Memoir from Mexico, Maine

When We Were the Kennedys: A Memoir from Mexico, Maine

Monica Wood

Winner of the 2012 Sarton Memoir Award

“Every few years, a memoir comes along that revitalizes the form…With generous, precise, and unsentimental prose, Monica Wood brilliantly achieves this . . . When We Were the Kennedys is a deeply moving gem!”—Andre Dubus III, author of House of Sand and Fog and Townie

Mexico, Maine, 1963: The Wood family is much like its close, Catholic, immigrant neighbors, all dependent on the fathers’ wages from the Oxford Paper Company. But when Dad suddenly dies on his way to work, Mum and the four deeply connected Wood girls are set adrift. When We Were the Kennedys is the story of how a family, a town, and then a nation mourns and finds the strength to move on.

“On her own terms, wry and empathetic, Wood locates the melodies in the aftershock of sudden loss.”—Boston Globe

“[A] marvel of storytelling, layered and rich. It is, by turns, a chronicle of the renowned paper mill that was both pride and poison to several generations of a town; a tribute to the ethnic stew of immigrant families that grew and prospered there; and an account of one family’s grief, love, and resilience.”—Maine Sunday Telegram

Hebrew Myths

Hebrew Myths

Robert Graves

This is a comprehensive look at the stories that make up the Old Testament and the Jewish religion, including the folk tales, apocryphal texts, midrashes, and other little-known documents that the Old Testament and the Torah do not include. In this exhaustive study, Robert graves provides a fascinating account of pre-Biblical texts that have been censored, suppressed, and hidden for centuries, and which now emerge to give us a clearer view of Hebrew myth and religion than ever.

Venerable classicist and historian Robert Graves recounts the ancient Hebrew stories, both obscure and familiar, with a rich sense of storytelling, culture, and spirituality. This book is sure to be riveting to students of Jewish or Judeo-Christian history, culture, and religion.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Robert Graves (1895–1985) was an English novelist, poet, and translator of Classical Greek and Roman literature, and one of the most prominent English writers of the 20th century. He was an extremely prolific writer, who published more than 140 novels and collections of poetry. In addition to novels and poetry, he published groundbreaking analysis of Greek mythology, as well as a memoir of his time in combat during World War I, where he was gravely wounded at the Battle of the Somme. Graves is best known for his historical novels, which include I, Claudius, Claudius the God, The Golden Fleece, King Jesus, and Count Belisarius. In 1934, Robert Graves was awarded the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for his historical novels dealing with the Roman Emperor Claudius.

Raphael Patai (1910–1996) was a Hungarian-Jewish ethnographer, historian, Orientalist and anthropologist. While Patai’s work was widespread, ranging from the development of ancient Israelite culture to modern Arab studies, his primary focus and first passion was Jewish folklore. Among his other books are Myth and Legend of Ancient Israel, The Hebrew Goddess, and The Myth of the Jewish Race. He was a professor at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and founded the Palestine Institute of Folklore and Ethnology, where he served as the research director for four years. After he became a U.S. citizen he held visiting professorships at many esteemed universities, including Princeton, Columbia, New York University, and the University of Pennsylvania. In 1936, Raphael was granted the Bialik Prize for Jewish thought jointly with Moshe Zvi Segal.
