What truly defines a life? What makes us who we are? It is, in no small part, our life's experiences and those who surround us. It is the setbacks, the triumphs and those people in our lives through which the potter's hand gradually molds us into the shape we are to become. I had been molded in many ways - A brother's death in Vietnam when I was 7 years old, a motorcycle accident that took my father's life when I was a senior in high school, and an embarrassingly short ten day marriage in my early thirties. I was molded through positive influences as well - the unconditional love of a faithful mother, the positive role model of an older brother and my Christian faith, which sustained me against life's many piercing arrows. And I was molded by my love for motorcycles...From riding in the 5 acre field behind my house as a kid, racing the Mexican Baja peninsula, trail riding through the Sierra Nevada Mountains and riding my Harley throughout the country. These experiences prepared me for this journey.

Prayer is the most vital part of a Christian's life. We must keep an open line of communication with God. Everyone finds themselves in moments of trials and temptations and only God has the perfect way of escape. Do you struggle with spiritual pain-double mindedness, insecurity, fear, hopelessness, unforgiveness, disobedience, hurt, loneliness, rejection, discouragement, anger or a host of other imperfections? Prayer will help; God wants to be your comfort and guide. There is pardon and protection in prayer. God is the main character of prayer-not us. We must bring our petitions to Him-not our wants and persuasions. The excitement of the Christian walk is to find God's will and ask Him for it. The prayers in this book are full of faith and praise and have brought healing and comfort to many. Pray them verbatim or use them as a pattern for your own needs. Victory comes to those who pray. The privilege and responsibility of prayer belongs to those who are saved. Life's Lessons is a group of short stories that introduce people to Jesus, our Savior and Lord, through everyday living. Even if one has not read the Bible, everyday life testifies to the sovereignty of God. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) "And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him." (I John 5:15) Norma K Riggs is a happily married mother and grandmother living in Windsor, Virginia. She holds the degree of Bachelor of Theology from the International College of Bible Theology. Besides intercessory prayer her interest is working with intellectually challenged adults.

A seemingly benevolent endeavor to help others in a remote part of the world turned out to be much more life-changing than ever anticipated. A faith-driven desire to put his beliefs into action by taking a mission trip to Haiti led Jeff Newell and his family to experience multiple opportunities for personal and spiritual growth and gain a profound appreciation of the people and culture they encountered. Almost immediately the tables were turned when they found themselves on the receiving end of the many life lessons that were unknowingly, yet subtly being revealed. Come follow their journey in the rural mountains of Haiti as they experience the importance of building relationships, dependency on God, sharing from our need and not our excess, and finding God present in everyday occurrences. Open Your Eyes masterfully captures the essence of nearly two decades of routine daily situations, turning them into both meaningful learning experiences as well as humorous anecdotes. "I have enjoyed reading your book. I was captivated from the first paragraph." Lori Sabol, Tippecanoe County Bar Association President, Lafayette, IN. "Thank you for sharing your vision, your mission, your actions and your reflections. I was inspired, informed and educated by your work." Fequiere Vilsaint, owner of EducaVision, Miami, FL. "I am very grateful to Jeff for writing this book to preserve and to share the lessons learned in the field. I have learned a great deal, as something of a second-generation fellow traveler, from reading these stories, and I am confident that many readers of this book will similarly be gifted." John Nichols, STL, PhD, Rensselaer, IN. "I have read through it twice and found it to be superbly written and a much needed message, not only to be read, but reflected upon by anyone doing mission in any place (including here at home). It is very important to include 'lived experiences and examples' verses just theories and ideas. Jeff had done this very, very well!" Father Ron Schneider, pastor St. Ann Church, Baldwin, MI.

COVID-19 is speeding up history, but how? What is the shape of the world to come? Lenin once said, "There are decades when nothing happens and weeks when decades happen."

Written in the form of ten "lessons," covering topics from natural and biological risks to the rise of "digital life" to an emerging bipolar world order, Zakaria helps readers to begin thinking beyond the immediate effects of COVID-19. Ten Lessons for a Post-Pandemic World speaks to past, present, and future, and, while urgent and timely, is sure to become an enduring reflection on life in the early twenty-first century.

One of Tallahassee's richest cultural entities, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at FSU, has collected here an anthology of mostly true and some fictional stories and poems, all rich, warm and seasoned. You get tales: bird dogs sprayed yellow and sulfurous; a white girl walking dusty red clay Georgia back roads and meeting her first black woman alone; an offbeat mom zanier than Lucille Ball; a magical memory with hooting owls echoing across a Suwannee River of the past; the chilling monologue of an old man set on his last revenge. In a poem, the narrator talks about finding an old friend on line with whom she tests recipes “for rescue and disaster.” What's not to love about a renaissance of words from a generation which has navigated its way through one world war, the cheery ‘50s, change-happy ‘60s, groovy ‘70s, greedy ‘80s, rich ‘90s, and into the next century? They have plenty to show us here. Mary Jane Ryals Poet Laureate of the Big Bend Tallahassee, Florida
