Did Columbus believe that God called him west to undiscovered lands? Does American democracy owe its inception to the handful of Pilgrims that settled at Plymouth?

As readers look at their nation's history from God's point of view, they will begin to have an idea of how much we owe to a very few--and how much is still at stake.

From James Rees, Executive Director of Mount Vernon, comes anenlightening guide to the leadership wisdom of America's first great leader. George Washington was more than just an inspiring battlefield commander; he was critical to the founding and success of the United States ofAmerica. His leadership, his vision, and his courage united a war-torncountry and set the United States on the path to greatness. Washington's historic contribution to this nation--his leadership and his character--are as relevant and valuable today as they have ever been. This book reveals Washington's character, his leadership, his vision, and most surprising of all, his business skills and acumen. Most people aren't awarethat Washington, while all of the above, was also a successful businessman and visionary entrepreneur. Exhibiting qualities sorely lacking in so many of our political and business leaders today, Washington remained steadfastly honest and ethical,following guiding principles that would benefit leaders around the world. George Washington's Leadership Lessons reveals a man of true character,worthy of emulation not just in the realm of politics and war, but in allleadership positions.

Through Three Miracles...Pulling the Sail in Together and Resetting "The Middle of the Political Spectrum" by Mary Ali America is more than two and a half centuries old now. Since she won her independence in 1776, the world witnessed her rapid growth as the largest democracy and a powerful country with a strong economy. However, since the last quarter of the twentieth century, there seemed to be a steady decline of its status both as a world power and a world economy. The twenty-first century greeted her with bigger problems, particularly the September 11, 2001 bombing of the World Trade Center in New York, the ongoing war against terrorism, and the collapse of the stock market in 2008. Hope seems to dim as years pass by. Is there still a way to save America? Mary E. Ali concludes the way to reform America by returning to the middle of the political spectrum-something that the Founding Fathers of America had determined when they made the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. Since the Progressive movement in the late 1890s through the 1920s, the American government is applying Marxist principles where it encroaches on the unalienable rights of people as a way to equalize the haves and the havenots, with consequences that shattered the basic unit of the country-the American family. The author believes that America should return to "In God We Trust" and a Republic, where big government returns the power to the people and the president is not the leader of the masses but the leader of the union of sovereign states. And then American, again, would be called "The Light Up On A Hill" for other nations. About the Author Mary E. Ali is a devout Christian, a faithful wife for more than twenty-five years, and a loving mother of two children. She received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Education and Health from Slippery Rock University. She pursued another degree in physical therapy at the University of Pittsburgh and Doctor of Physical Therapy from Boston University. She was also certified as a specialist in geriatric physical therapy through the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialists. Another certification in Leadership Development was awarded to her by the Section on Health Policy & Administration (HPA) of the American Physical Therapy Association.
