The Garden of Small Beginnings

She had essentially been unconscious through the whole thing, but as I backed out of the bedroom, she called my name. “Yeah, Mags?” “Don't tell Berto we went to a strip joint.” I nodded. “I promise.” “Or that I puked on you.” I smiled.

“A quirky, funny, and deeply thoughtful book”* that’s “filled with characters you’ll love and wish you lived next door to in real life”** from the author of The Bookish Life of Nina Hill. Lilian Girvan has been a single mother for three years—ever since her husband died in a car accident. One mental breakdown and some random suicidal thoughts later, she’s just starting to get the hang of this widow thing. She can now get her two girls to school, show up to work, and watch TV like a pro. The only problem is she’s becoming overwhelmed with being underwhelmed. At least her textbook illustrating job has some perks—like actually being called upon to draw whale genitalia. Oh, and there’s that vegetable-gardening class her boss signed her up for. Apparently, being the chosen illustrator for a series of boutique vegetable guides means getting your hands dirty, literally. Wallowing around in compost on a Saturday morning can’t be much worse than wallowing around in pajamas and self-pity. After recruiting her kids and insanely supportive sister to join her, Lilian shows up at the Los Angeles botanical garden feeling out of her element. But what she’ll soon discover—with the help of a patient instructor and a quirky group of gardeners—is that into every life a little sun must shine, whether you want it to or not...

Poland, 1906: on a cold spring night, in the small Jewish cemetery of Zokof, Friedl Alterman is wakened from death. On the ground above her crouches Itzik Leiber, a reclusive, unbelieving fourteen-year-old whose fatal mistake has spurred the town's angry residents to violence. The childless Friedl rises to guide him to safety -- only to find she cannot go back to her grave. Now Friedl is trapped in that thin world between life and death, her brash decision binding her forever to Itzik and his family: she is fated to be forever restless, and he, forever haunted by the ghosts of his past. Years later, after Itzik himself has gone to his grave, his son, Nathan, knows nothing of his bitter father's childhood. When he begrudgingly goes to Poland on business, Nathan decides on a whim to visit his ancestral town. There, in Zokof, he meets the mysterious Rafael, the town's last remaining Jew, who promises to pass on all the things Itzik had failed to teach his son - about Zokof, about his faith, and about himself.

A job that calls for a hero ... but they're all busy. When your very existence is treason, employment opportunities are thin on the ground. But when one of the biggest crime lords in the city makes The Pan of Hamgee a job offer he can’t refuse, it’s hard to tell what the dumbest move is: accepting the offer or saying no to Big Merv. Neither will do much for The Pan’s life expectancy. Written in British English with a dash of light swearing. Suitable for any reader of any age from 10 up - younger readers who have read all the Harry Potter books without any worries will be fine with the Hamgeean Misfit stories. Suggested cinema rating, PG. INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR Q – So, tell us about K'Barthan Extras. What made you write them? What makes this book special? A – If you want the honest answer I wrote it for me. As a reader, I love British satire and humor (or humour). I love wit; funny epic fantasy series like the Discworld novels and comedic sci fi like Douglas Adams, humorous science fiction reads, or fantasy stories. I like sff and speculative fiction but the best science fiction and fantasy stories, for me, are funny, I like adventure and action and a gripping tale that zips along quickly. And of course, I like genre fiction mashups; Douglas Adams meets StarTrek and James Bond - with a smidgeon of Dr Who and a dash of romance (but no squelchy bits). Think Father Ted meets Red Dwarf or then again ... maybe don't. I wanted a fast paced story, a gripping tale but at the same time a funny one. Comedy in the tradition of all the great humorous British authors, something light and witty and clever. I like to aim high. I wanted protagonists people could love and empathise with, mavericks, misfit characters, real people ... except they're not all people obviously, some of them are other alien (ish) species. The K'Barthan series about misfit heroes and heroines winning the day, it’s about good versus evil even when the good guys are on different sides. It's a science fiction fantasy action adventure - it's planet based, so it's a bit of a blend. It's pure comedic portal fantasy, except it's comedy sci fi too. You'll find all sorts of quirky characters and interesting alien species: from 6ft Swamp Things with antennae to cute furry creatures like the Blurpons, with their fluffy ears, big button eyes and penchant for extreme violence. Oh ... and did I mention the flying car chases? Q – Do our readers have to read the K’Barthan Extras in order? A – Nope, you can read these in any order you like Q – What is your favourite kind of Book? Would this one fit on the list? A – Oh yes. As I mentioned earlier, I love humorous novels and comedic sci fi especially. I enjoy science fiction fantasy and I love the idea of stories set in parallel universes or realities - I enjoyed the Narnia books and J R Tolkein, too. I also love a good super villain, a bad guy you love to hate. That said, a lot of my influences come from TV. There was this evening slot in the UK, after homework but before supper, when they showed old classic stuff on BBC2; original StarTrek, Get Smart, Hogan's Heroes, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. The persuaders, the Avengers, the Saint, Randal and Hopkirk Deceased, The Prisoner, Space 1999. Then there's Star Wars, Blake's Seven and Dr Who, and Red Dwarf, of course. I loved all that. Q – Do you have a target reader? A – Officially it’s young adults and teenagers. Now that it’s complete the series is certainly proving popular with ya readers and I had my nephew in mind when I wrote them, who was a teenager at the time. However, I firmly believe that all the best books should hold a universal appeal, so I also wrote it for me. Thus far – if the people who contact me are anything to go by – it appeals to a certain type of person across the board. The oldest fan of the my books I know about was in his 90s and the youngest,10. The kind of readers who review my stuff often compare it to Terry Pratchett's Discworld, Douglas Adams, Harry Potter and Harry Harrison's Stainless Steel Rat series (but don't expect this to be as good as any of those). People who like my stuff also enjoy Barry Hutchieson's Space Team books but again, while mine are good science fiction fantasy books, don't expect them to as good as all this stuff I've mentioned whatever the reviews might say! This is just to give you a flavour of the kind of tone you might expect. Fans of these other sci fi and fantasy authors may also enjoy this series: Terry Brooks, Robert Rankin, C Gockel, Patty Jansen, JJ Greene, FJ Savage, Terry Gilliam, Grant Naylor, Robin Hobb, Terry Pratchett, Tom Holt, Robert Rankin, Douglas Adams, T M Catron, Scott Bartlett, Iain M Banks, Rebecca Douglass, Elly Griffith, Lindsey Davis, Lindsay Buroker, Jim Webster, Stephen King (stuff like the Green Mile or Shawshank Redemption), Jake Bible, Barry Hutchison, Nick Cole, Jason Anspach, Mark Tufo, Zen DePietro, PG Wodehouse, Bill Bryson, Micheal Palin, Anne McCaffrey, David Eddings, Terry Brooks, Jasper Fforde, Heide Goodey, Terry Brooks, Robert Rankin, C Gockel, Donald Swan, EM Foner, John Scalzi, Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry, Robert A.

The Genesis of How to Pray for Your Church

Few of us experience a church's beginning, but all experience the aftermath. A church's foundation doesn't guarantee its future trajectory. Growth is deviant without obedience, faith, and sacrifice. Drift from reliance on God to dependence on man is relentless, fueled by ignorance, complacency, and power-plays. Course corrections are necessary to survive. Mission and vision establish our pathway, but only a sense of purpose keeps us on course. We have relegated the notion of devotion to religious rhetoric. Severing it from rhetoric and grafting it into action goes against our nature. Four attributes are crucial to a church's vision and pilgrimage. They are tenacity, perseverance, integrity, and humility. They reinforce one another, and none stand alone. Adversity is their sustenance and the environment in which they thrive. These factors, individually and collectively, portray the dynamic tug-of-war between the flesh and the spirit. We can't pray effectively if we don't understand their intricacies? Principles presented in this book will equip you to recognize the signs of approaching problems and failures and guide you in how to counteract them in your prayer closet. This book presents spiritual principles and Key Insights for Prayer: · Free you from the fallacy that your church is static in maturity and inerrant in its pursuit of vision and mission · Improve your understanding of the conflict between spiritual factors that propel your church toward God's objective and fleshly factors that struggle to bring it down to what is humanly possible · Help you think beyond the superficial expressions of a church's problems and recognize their root causes Compel you to question what we've traditionally accepted as sacred and question practices commonly viewed as innocent but may be detrimental to a church's growth and vitality.
