Through My Eyes: A Story of a Teenage Female in War is the first of its kind. It shares the author’s experience as a 19 year old female soldier, sent straight to war without ever unpacking her bags from basic training. She was 3rd Infantry Division 7th Cavalry based out of Fort Stewart, Georgia; the first of the Army to cross the threshold into Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003. She, along with 480 men, were sent off to war without anticipating their return back home. This is a story of battered innocence, thrill, shock, torture, sexism and war. Being in the middle of the desert with little to no support, the odds were all against us. It was their terrain, their resources with unlimited supply of ammo. It was the perfect recipe for a massacre.

Gordon Smith has been hailed as "Britain’s most accurate medium" and his life has fascinated not only his fans, but has intrigued scientists alike. In this autobiographical book, Gordon opens a window onto his life to give readers an idea of what the world looks and feels like for a medium. He walks the reader through the diverse situations he has found himself in and gives detailed insight into the many readings he has given. He explains what it actually feels like when Spirits communicate through him and answers many of the questions about death that haunt the bereaved. Yet the most fascinating thing that Gordon reveals is about his role as a medium: overthrowing the stereotypes, Gordon shows that a medium’s job is not just to converse with Spirits, but to heal the living. When people are grieving the loss of a loved one, Gordon’s messages can ease grief, answer unresolved questions, bring comfort, give hope, and reassure the living of the peaceful afterlife that their loved ones have passed on to. Gordon shares many stories of people who have found peace and resolution from his messages. These are people who have been so affected by Gordon’s work that they are happy for him to tell their story in this book with the desire of helping others who are experiencing pain and sorrow. Gordon hopes that this intimate and candid book will offer great wisdom, comfort, and practical advice to his thousands of readers.This is a repackage of Through My Eyes (ISBN: 9781401915254)

Many have written about Billy Graham, the evangelist. This is the first book about Billy Graham, the father, written from the perspective of a son who knew him best. As a beloved evangelist and a respected man of God, Billy Graham’s stated purpose in life never wavered: to help people find a personal relationship with God through a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. This was a calling that only increased over time, and Billy embraced it fully throughout his active ministry and beyond. Yet Billy pursued his life’s work, as many men do, amid a similarly significant calling to be a loving husband and father. While most people knew Billy Graham as America’s pastor, Franklin Graham knew him in a different way, as a dad. And while present and future generations will come to their own conclusions about Billy Graham and the legacy that his commitment to Christ has left behind, no one can speak more insightfully or authoritatively on that subject than a son who grew up in the shadow of his father’s life and the examples of his father’s love. This vulnerable book is a look at both Billy Graham the evangelist and Billy Graham the father, and the impact he had on a son who walked in his father’s steps while also becoming his own man, leading ministries around the world, all of it based on the foundational lessons his father taught him. “My father left behind a testimony to God,” says Franklin, “a legacy not buried in a grave but still pointing people to a heaven-bound destiny. The Lord will say to my father, and to all who served Him obediently, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant’ [Matthew 25:21].”

Amina lives on the edges of Mogadishu. Her family's house has been damaged in Somalia's long civil war, but they continue to live there, reluctant to leave their home. Amina's world is shattered when government forces come to arrest her father because his art has been officially censored, deemed too political. Then rebel forces kidnap Amina's brother, forcing him to become a soldier in Somalia's brutal ongoing war. Although her mother and grandmother are still with her, Amina feels vulnerable and abandoned. Secretly, she begins to create her own artwork in the streets and the derelict buildings to give herself a sense of hope and to let out the burden of her heart. Her artwork explodes into Mogadishu's underground world, providing a voice for people all over the city who hope for a better, more secure future. 'This touching story brings home vividly the dangers of creating art that seeks to be true - and all the more so during a vicious civil war, interwoven with religious extremism. Thankfully, Amina's teenage curiosity and courage also signal hope.' - Beverley Naidoo, author of Carnegie Medal Winner The Other Side of Truth
