By the flip of a coin, famous novelist, Kory Slate travels to Wales intent on finding rest and relaxation.

An array of Kory’s books in a Welsh bookstore window pulls him into the shop to browse. He is astonished to meet Dafina Perry, the living image of a female character in his last book. As his vacation progresses down its unusual track, he finds himself inexplicably and somewhat humorously entangled in her family drama.

Difficult People: Strategies For Dealing With Toxic People and How To Correctly Approach Difficult Personalities (Living around christian relationships … religion and healthy spirituality Book 1)

Luke Gregory

Beware of toxic and difficult people that you meet in life.

They will try to destroy everything around them: positive emotions, feelings, and love towards loved ones.

Do you think you can cope with difficult people?

The first thing you have to recognize is that some people are just very different from you and are not intentionally trying to be difficult.

Those people, they are ,,wall” people in our life, as I like to say.

If you don’t handle difficult situations the right way, they will not only continue, but they will get worse!

Change the way you think and manage stressful situations with difficult people:

How to deal with self centered people, control freaks, disruptive, clingy, needy people, complainers, jealous, procrastinators, etc.
Coping Strategies For Dealing With Difficult People.
How to Keep Your Cool.
How to Don’t React Quickly.
How to Be Proactive.
How to: Proact Instead of React, Set Consequences, Have Good Personal Boundaries, Confront Behaviour Safely, Get Away.
Don’t Help People At Your Own Expense.
How to: Pick Your Battles, Put Humour Into It, Separate The Person From The Issue, Put The Spotlight On Them
Don’t Take It Personally and Have Compassion and Patience.
So much, much more information in this book.

Who this book is for:

People who have problems communicating with difficult people in their lives
Those who have gone through a difficult moment and were blocked at a time
Those who want to learn how to manage a difficult situation
Those who want to learn more about the cause and effect of difficult people.

The first thing I want to cover is how often are you meeting up with difficult people.

If it is happening to you all the time, then there is something critical that you are going to want to consider, and I hope that I don’t offend you, but it is the truth. If it is happening all the time then maybe you are a major part of the problem.

Yes, I did say that. If you find that you are in conflict all the time then as you read this book, look at yourself and see if you recognize yourself in any the toxic people that will be described.

If you find one that you see yourself in, then you have taken the first step to healing and becoming an easier to get along with a person.

They become difficult to get along with as a way of protecting themselves from being hurt more. They also don’t like themselves, so they hurt others as a way of making themselves feel better.

The only problem is that it doesn’t work and in the end, they become more and more hurt and more and harder to get along with.
Now if this isn’t you then be thankful because you are in a pretty good place emotionally and you are truly just dealing with difficult people on their end.

My goal is to help you, not give you something that will just tickle your ears and make you feel good. If you find that you are in conflict all the time then as you read this book look at yourself and see if you recognize yourself in any the people that will be described.

If you find one that you see yourself in, then you have taken the first step to healing and becoming an easier to get along with that difficult person.

Many times people are difficult to get along with because of hurts, pains, abuse and other things that happened in childhood. They become difficult to get along with as a way of protecting themselves from being hurt more. They also don’t like themselves, so they hurt others as a way of making themselves feel better.

I’m sure my book will guide you through your life and your path.

Love & Redemption (The Florida Irish Book 1)

Love & Redemption (The Florida Irish Book 1)

Suzanne D Williams

REVISED – December 2016

***

“Do you love me?”

He reformed her question, and her stomach knotted. Now, he asked too much of her.

“I asked you first,” she whispered. She swallowed her regret, a wall erecting between them. He wanted those words from her, but she couldn’t say them. For in saying those three words, she’d commit herself to this, to him, and that was the trouble.

She’d said the vows – to have and to hold, in sickness and in health, ‘til death do them part. She’d said them, though, with a gun at her back and a stranger’s hand in hers. By admitting she loved him, the words took on meaning and held requirements. It meant she’d stay by his side always and maybe never see her family again. She became responsible to him.

A tear rolled down her cheek. She swiped it away.

Michael cleared his throat. “I love you, Anne. My question is, why you don’t love me back?”

—–

Michael O’Fallen simply wants to survive. A poor Irish boy living in post-Civil War New York, the events of one horrible night send him running far south to unsettled Florida and an uncertain future. Promise-bound to a group of outlaws in an effort to escape his crime, their hidden plans for him loom sinister on the horizon. What is it he’s been brought here to do?

The oldest of her siblings, Anne Sawyer is the one her poor mama depends on. Her papa is harsh and abusive. He drinks too much and gambles away what little they have. Rumors that he’s lost their house come full circle the night the new owner comes to collect. Except, it seems what her papa gambled this time wasn’t the house at all, but her.

Carried into the darkness in a stranger’s grasp, she and he are forced to marry with a gun to their backs. But the many dangers they face in their tenuous marriage soon take second place to the darkness in his past. Darkness that might destroy them unless they look to heaven for love and redemption.

Book 1 of the Florida Irish Series by best-selling author, SUZANNE D. WILLIAMS. A novel.

I've Never Been to Vegas, but My Luggage Has: Mishaps and Miracles on the Road to Happily Ever After

I’ve Never Been to Vegas, but My Luggage Has: Mishaps and Miracles on the Road to Happily Ever After

Mandy Hale

NOW A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!!!!

Wrong turns, humiliating flops, painful heartbreaks–and happiness? Yes, believe it or not, they can go hand in hand.

Blogger and author Mandy Hale, affectionately known as “The Single Woman” to her half-million social-media followers, is living an adventurous life that proves even our lowest lows and messiest mess-ups can point us toward our joy-filled destiny as single women.

In I’ve Never Been To Vegas, But My Luggage Has, Mandy delivers heart-to-heart, often hilarious stories from a life filled with love and loss, glamour and goose bumps, faith and friendship, big dreams and battle scars. She shares the bittersweet euphoria of her high-school romance, the panic-stricken cluelessness of her first day on a stressful job, and the foot-in-mouth horror of her red-carpet interview with a music legend.

Along the way, Mandy dollops personal anecdotes with encouraging insights. From thrilling first kisses to crushing break-ups, from soaring career milestones to promising flights that never quite got off the ground, she unfolds in often uproarious detail the zigzags along the path toward a pinnacle moment: sharing a table and a pinch-me-I’m-dreaming conversation with her lifelong hero.

In the end, Mandy turns Sin City’s infamous marketing slogan on its head: What happens in her life doesn’t stay in her life. She shares even her darkest moments in witty, winsome ways that make us not only feel her pain, but also laugh with her and apply her hard-won nuggets of inspiration to our own lives.

“Happily Ever After” might not look or feel quite like what we expect, but as Mandy is discovering–and as we can discover along with her–it is well within our reach.

And the Shofar Blew

And the Shofar Blew

Francine Rivers

In the Old Testament, God called His people to action with the blast of the shofar, a ram’s horn. He still calls His people today.

In this relevant and timely novel, dynamic young preacher Paul Hudson is committed to building his church—but at what cost? When Paul accepted the call to pastor the struggling church, he had no idea what to expect. But it didn’t take long for Paul to turn Centerville Christian Church around. Attendance is up, way up, and everything is going so well. If only his wife, Eunice, could see it that way. Still, he tries not to let her quiet presence distract him. But Eunice knows that something isn’t right . . . and it hasn’t been for a long time.

The more Paul’s zeal and ambition builds, the more he loses sight of the One who called him. As Paul and those around him struggle to discern what it truly means to live out their faith, they must ultimately choose between their own will and God’s plan.
