Each day a new page is written in our life story. It consists of everything we have thought, every choice we have made and every action taken. It's our story and the compilation of each page is who we are today. Looking back across the pages of our story gives us an opportunity to reflect on where we have come from and provides opportunity to improve our future. Most, if not all, of us have many twists and turns in our life story. Successes and failures, bad choices and good choices, close to God and far from God are some of the twists we can identify. This 6- week compelling Bible study will encourage women to look deeper into God's Word to find meaning and guidance for our wanderings and determine next steps to bring us closer to God's plan for our life. Included in each lesson are instructions to create a Twisted Journey Quilt top. What better way to document our life than to sew it into a quilt that can be used to share our story with others that may be following the same or similar journey. The study can be completed without sewing the quilt top.

Within the divided land of Cumerous, where each city has its own set of laws and rulers, an epic adventure is brewing as a terrific army threatens all life within Cumerous's borders. Cumerous is a land on the world of Vashundhara, where thousands of years ago a war between gods brought about the destruction of all unity between races. This tale begins when Quinn, a sorcerer of deadly magic, uses a huge army to try and conquer Cumerous and a magical land called Nexivian. The races unite when an isolated forest boy, a band of broken mercenaries, two powerful fairies, and a mysterious group of elves, race against time to stop the destruction of their homeland by the hands of Quinn. WHat no one realizes, however, is that a greater power lies in wait, one that could destroy the world of Vashundhara if not stopped. Within this cloud of chaos steps a lone figure: A prophet. As the last of his race, he might be the only strand of hope the world has left.
... exodus of Russian immigrants through Siberia, through what my father called his “long and twisting journey from the Bay of Finland to the Golden Gate.
Author: Serge P. Petroff
Category: Biography & Autobiography
The Russian revolution in 1917 and ensuing civil war caused a massive exodus of upper class, intelligentsia, and military families from Russia. The author's parents were part of that exodus, having stayed on until the very end of the Russian Civil War during which the author's father, Major General Paul Petroff, played an important role in the struggle against the Bolsheviks. They lived in northern China, Shanghai, Japan, and, after years of wandering, arrived in California where they became U.S. citizens and part of the American establishment. As you leaf through the memoir, you will find that the family witnessed the War of the Chinese Warlords, the militarization of Japan where the author's father had a law suit against the government for the recovery of gold bullion deposited by him for safekeeping with the Japanese Military Mission in 1920, the air raids over Tokyo, post-war American politics, the Cold War, the difficult years of the Vietnam War debate, and the Iraq War. Carefully documented from family archival materials, the memoir is a richly woven account of an odyssey that spanned eighty-five years of the author's life, from Harbin, China to the San Francisco Bay Area in California.

The first exploratory expedition to Pluto returns with only one crewman aboard-the Captain, Jules Carmodine. There is a profound mystery as to what has happened to the original crew: Carmodine is suffering from an amnesiac block, and is broken in health-almost insane, and full of self-loathing. Medical treatment restores his health but the amnesia as to what had happened on Pluto remains. Carmodine is then forced to go back on a second expedition to Pluto to exorcise his tortured memories of abandoning his crew. And unless he can remember what happened, the second expedition will fall victim to whatever decimated the first. It is a journey he does not wish to make-a journey into terror!
