A girl with it all planned out discovers a romance she never expected in this funny debut about a class trip to London that says you’ll love “if you’re into swoony romances with a little bit of history thrown in.” This spring break, Julia's rules are about to get defenestrated (SAT word: to be thrown from a window) when she's partnered with her personal nemesis, class-clown Jason, on a school trip to London. After one wild party, Julia starts receiving romantic texts . . . from an unknown number! Jason promises to help discover the identity of her mysterious new suitor if she agrees to break a few rules along the way. And thus begins a wild goose chase through London, leading Julia closer and closer to the biggest surprise of all: true love. Because sometimes the things you least expect are the most meant to be. *** "Readers of Jennifer E. Smith and Stephanie Perkins will revel in this debate about love ruled by the stars or as a matter of the heart." --Shelf Awareness "Fun, fresh and irresistibly romantic.

Published to strong reviews and major media attention, this heartfelt and inspirational rags-to-riches memoir by the highly regarded CEO of Parade Publications tells the emotional story of how he came to terms with an identity and a family that he never knew he had until he reached middle age. Meant To Be begins when Anderson, a 21-year-old Marine returns from service to say goodbye to his dying father and tries to find the answer to a question that has inexplicably haunted him from his earliest years: Was the alcoholic, abusive man who has so tormented him in his childhood his real father? Shockingly, the answer turns out to be "No." Unbeknown to him, at least until that point, his mother, a German Protestant, fell in love during World War II with a Russian Jew and bore his child. Anderson learns this information as a young man but he and his mother keep this secret for another 35 years, until the day Anderson—now an unusually successful publishing executive—meets an unknown brother who, it turns out, has lived a nearly parallel life. Meant To Be is a love story, a journey of self-discovery and spirituality, and a provocative challenge to common notions about the role of heredity in our lives.

In a novel reminiscent of the work of Maya Angelou and Ntozake Shange, Rita Coburn Whack tells the story of how a young woman’s spiritual awakening leads her to maturity and self-fulfillment. When Meant to Be opens, thirteen-year-old Patience Jan Campbell is called upon to read and interpret her favorite scripture for the church congregation: “I think this scripture means that children know every shut eye ain’t sleep and every head bowed ain’t praying, so grown-ups ain’t fooling us or God. . . . So nobody should hold a child back from God just ’cause they may be having trouble finding Him.” But a traumatic experience causes Jan to stumble and lose her “voice.” Unable to turn to those around her, she calls for her grandmother Hannah—who died before Jan was born—in prayer. Unbeknownst to Jan, Hannah does come, and through her wise eyes we follow Jan into her early twenties as she moves to the big city, goes to college, and begins a career. A reflective father, a misunderstood mother, a sage aunt, and two pivotal lovers all build emotional bridges that help Jan progress on her journey to womanhood. From the Trade Paperback edition.

We frantically started to run toward the road... All the guys were the first ones to make it to the car. I purposely stayed behind, keeping an eye on the ladies, particularly the one that was pregnant. She had looked tired most of the day and understandably so. It couldn't have been more than three hundred feet to get to the car. The only ones left to make it were her and me, and everyone else yelled out to me, 'Just leave her there or you're staying there too!' I just couldn't do it. I told myself I would rather get caught again than carry something like that on my conscience, so I picked her up and ran as fast as I possibly could. I had no strength left, but somehow that didn't matter. This is just one of the many attempts to begin a new life that author Rutino Lara trekked through. It would not be his last. Faced with a poverty-stricken existence in Mexico, Rutino took it upon himself to create a better life for his family, himself, and future family. To him, this meant escaping Mexico City to live a happier, healthier life in the USA. Compelled to overcome through danger, abuse, and corruption, his inspiring story doesn't go unnoticed. From his rock-solid faith in God, to his undying affection for his wife, this is a true rags to riches tale. Find out why Rutino Lara was Meant to Be.

'If you don't love and honour yourself with every fiber of your being, if you struggle with owning your power and passion, then it is time for an inner revolution! It is time to claim your Warrior Goddess energy.'

This is a book that teaches women to see themselves as perfect just the way they are, to resist society's insistence that they seek value, wholeness and love through something outside themselves, such as a husband, children, boyfriend, career or a spiritual path.

Author HeatherAsh Amara has written this book as a message for women struggling to find themselves under these false ideals. Amara challenges women to be 'warrior goddesses', to be a woman who:

  • Ventures out to find herself
  • Combats fear and doubt
  • Reclaims her power and vibrancy
  • Demonstrates her strength of compassion and fierce love

Her approach draws on the wisdom from Buddhism, Toltec wisdom and ancient earth-based goddess spirituality, and combines them all with the goal of helping women become empowered, authentic and free.

Included here are personal stories, rituals and exercises that encourage readers to begin their own journey towards becoming warrior goddesses.

Kim’s World Turns Upside Down When Kim’s mom is diagnosed with cancer, Natalie steps in, as true friends will do, to round up hundreds of people to pray for Mrs. Peterson’s healing. Her health begins to improve, and Kim’s love life begins to flourish…but with a non-Christian. Natalie warns Kim to break off the relationship, but is that just because she’s jealous? Or is God trying to speak to Kim through Natalie’s counsel? When her mom’s health suddenly declines again, Kim blames herself. Maybe she never should have become involved with Matthew, especially as she’s tempted to give in to his pressure to have sex. Kim’s faith is hanging in the balance. She wants to believe that prayer will prevail, but the obstacles seem so big… Thursday, December 29 My dad and I are both feeling a little torn about Mom right now. On one hand, we all act like everything is just peachy, perfectly normal. But at the same time, it’s like we’re walking on eggshells too. Like we’re all thinking the same thing–is this our last Christmas all together? Kim Peterson’s mom has stage four ovarian cancer, and Kim’s done enough research online to know the odds are dismal. But Kim and her best friend, Natalie McCabe, and a lot of other people are praying that God will heal her mom. Kim’s mom makes her promise that she’ll continue with life as normal: Nat, youth group, violin, her Just Ask Jamie newspaper column, even hanging out with Matthew. But how can life be normal with cancer hanging over your head like a dark cloud? And then she’s getting flak from Natalie because Matthew’s not a Christian, and Nat’s afraid he’ll drag Kim down. But Nat’s dating life isn’t exactly smooth sailing, either. Both girls are praying a lot–and waiting to find out what’s meant to be. Reader’s guide included Story Behind the Book “My teenage years remain vivid in my mind. It was a turbulent time, full of sharp contrasts–love and hate, pain and pleasure, trust and doubt. Then, just as I reached my peak of questioning, rebelling, and seeking, I found God. And I found Him in a really big way! My life turned completely around and has, thankfully, never turned back. Hopefully this story will touch and change hearts–speaking to teen girls right where they live, reminding readers that God is alive and well and ready to be intimately involved in their lives right now!” –Melody Carlson From the Trade Paperback edition.

Rupel Perkins 1931 Hometown: Athens, Ohio Deceased: (1908-1962) In the Fall of 1928, Rupel Perkins came to Kansas Wesleyan University. This was the era of the Great Depression. Coming here, Rupel knew of only one man in Salina, Kansas, and at KWU. His name was Alexander B. Mackie, the Athletic Director and Football Coach at Kansas Wesleyan. Born in Azam, Pennsylvania, Mackie graduated from Dickinson Seminary in Williamsport and later, from Ohio Wesleyan in 1919. Like Coach Gene Bissell, Alexander Mackie signed to play baseball with the Cleveland Indians; but elected to coach instead. As the head coach at Athens High School, his football teams were 17-1 in 1919 and 1920. His basketball team was even more impressive winning sixth place in the 1921 National Prep Tournament. With these winning credentials, Coach Mackie moved from Athens, Ohio, to guide the athletic program at KWU. Only thirteen years old when Mackie left Athens for Salina, Rupel was living with his widowed mother, Maggie, and a sister Mildred, who was fourteen. His father, Arch, lived in Missouri where the children were born, but had died before the move to Athens. When A.B. Mackie came to KWU, he inherited a football tradition that had produced only 25 wins in 16 seasons, just slightly over one victory per year. Those days were rough for Coach Mackie too. His very first game was against one of the powers of the Midwest in those days, Haskell Indian Institute, who poured it on the Coyotes, 89-0. Coaching those first three years produced three losing seasons: 0-8, 2-7 and 4-5-1. Coach Mackie never had another losing season. His and KWU’s first football championship came in 1927 as KWU won the KIAA (Kansas Intercollegiate Athletic Association). Eight freshmen started for that team of champions, and so did Martin Isaacson, the greatest halfback in KWU history and a first team All-KIAA and Kansas Collegiate First Team All-Stater, who was a senior and would not be returning. The connection between Perkins and Mackie was somehow established by both men being in Athens, Ohio. Black athletes were not permitted to be athletic representatives at Athens High School and Rupel was not in high school when Coach Mackie left for Kansas. So how did the young black athlete come to Salina? Rupel Perkins was the son of Archibald “Arch” Perkins and Maggie (Miller) Perkins who married in 1904 at New London, Rails, Missouri. Mildred, Rupel’s older sister by two years and the family were living on a farm when Arch passed away in 1910. Maggie took her small family to Davenport, Iowa, where she had relatives. From there the family somehow made it to Athens, Ohio, where A.B. Mackie was coaching in the “white” high school. Barely a teen-ager when Mackie left for Salina, observant friends of the football coach may have passed the word to Mackie about the speedster from Athens black community who would be able to play football and run track in Salina where KWU was currently having black athletes playing alongside white athletes in the Kansas college. When Rupel Perkins came to Salina in the Fall of 1928, Kansas Wesleyan had concluded their greatest football season in the history of the sport from its inception in 1893 at KWU. The Coyotes would be the defending co-champions of the KIAA (Kansas Intercollegiate Athletic Association) with a 6-0-1 league record, an undefeated 7-0-1 season record and a goal line that had not been crossed for the entire season giving up zero points. Football members of the KIAA were Baker University, Baldwin, KS; Washburn University, Topeka, KS; Bethel College, North Newton, KS; Fort Hays State University, Fort Hays, KS; McPherson College, McPherson, KS; Bethany College, Lindsborg, KS; and St. Mary’s College, St. Marys, KS. The Coyotes graduated their greatest running back ever in the Formoso Flash, Martin Isaacson. Isaacson led the KIAA in touchdowns (16), scoring (108 points), total game offense (289

James Verity was born in Brooklyn in 1925. Raised in a large Irish Catholic family, Jim was introduced to religion at an early age. This introduction quickly grew into a strong and personal relationship with both God and the Church. At a very early age, Jim knew he wanted to be a Passionist Priest. At only fourteen, he left home, traveled over 400 miles to Dunkirk, New York, and began to prepare for the priesthood. This memoir tells Jim’s story. It tells his story as a Religious and as a man. It describes his journey – from his decision to enter the seminary, to his decision to leave the active ministry, almost thirty years later. It recalls the challenges he faced when his decision to marry and start a family was interpreted by some as a rejection of the faith and Church that meant so much to him. And, it recounts how he never stopped searching for ways to serve his God. This memoir chronicles the life of a man with a remarkable spiritual gift and an exceptionally close relationship with God.
