High school coach Brady Hammond believes basketball is the best sport in the world. With its numerous athletic demands, intricate cognitive tactics, and precious life lessons, basketball has been a huge part of his life since he was a child and is a tremendous reason he's grown to be the educator he is today. Despite his love for the game, however, perhaps the biggest lesson he's learned is that basketball in itself cannot completely fulfill his desire for true meaning and purpose. In fact, he eventually comes to the realization that any passion we hold will ultimately fail to meet our expectations if we don't have them in the right perspective. In Heaven on the Hardwood, Hammond takes you on his journey from when he was a child who dreams of becoming an NBA superstar to a young man who earns a varsity head coaching job right out of college. Along the way, you'll get to experience his most significant triumphs, his most difficult challenges, and his most exasperating disappointments, and how they've all helped him discover how to use his passions in the way they were meant to be used: for eternal significance. www.CoachHammond.com

In November 2010, I was approached by a traditional aboriginal healer who said he had a message for me. This encounter would lead me down a path of fear, manipulation, and warped spiritual guidance. This book chronicles my life journey as an Aboriginal from the Mi?kmaq nation, from growing up on a Canadian reserve mired in poverty and family violence and deeply rooted in the Catholic Faith, to reconciling my guilt and shame for all I had done and overcoming an introduction to spirituality based on fear and the punitive. Finally, it provides a narrative of my own spiritual development, including the loving guidance and intuitive messages I received from spirit, and the ultimate triumph of healing, love, and forgiveness. [The healer] said he had had a dream?a vision, and it wasn't good. It concerned our boys. He said he saw a white work van with dark windows and somebody grabbing and kidnapping my boys ?

Captain William Barker's ship, the Merchant's Hope left Gravesend, England in July 1635. As the wind carried the ship the passenger's hopes were cast to the wind as well. England grew distant in the background, as families left memories of a lifetime behind. Richard Fanshawe, a 22 year old traveler was on board. Using Richard as a link, the author details an English family's migration to Virginia. Transcription errors allowed the family to remain hidden in the archives, until recent discoveries brought their identity to light. They traveled from England to Virginia, New England, Tennessee, and into Texas. Many hardships occurred, including public whippings, but the story ends on a high note as a patriarch leaves an eternal legacy. One reader says, "The book was well written. Your heartwarming tribute to your father touched my heart. You're a man of hidden poetic talents, a wordsmith. What a wonderful family legacy your book will be to future generations!"- Hooker"

He's a bad boy Alpha male who indulges himself in all things, women included. But while she couldn't care less about country music or arrogant men, Rye makes her an offer she can't refuse when he asks her to be his private chef on his multi-city concert tour. The job is the answer to all her prayers: it will clear out her debt and finance the fresh start she desperately needs. Rye is certain his sassy new cook is the last woman who'd ever tempt him, but spending time with the wholesome girl next door will do wonders for his damaged public image, whether she likes being forced into the spotlight or not. Her food also happens to be the best he's ever eaten, both comforting and seductive.

**Finalist in The Word Awards (suspense category)** A grieving woman is abducted by a serial killer—and it may be the answer to her prayers. Despite her husband’s objections, 40-something Ruth Warner finds healing through prayer for Harry Silver, the former race car driver who brutally raped and murdered her niece. When a kidnapping-gone-wrong pegs Ruth as his next victim, Harry claims that by destroying the one person who’d pray for him, he proves God can’t—or won’t—look after His own. Can Ruth’s faith sustain her to the end—whatever the cost? Heaven’s Prey is about a dangerous offender’s last chance at redemption and a vulnerable woman’s obedience to pray for her enemy—not the gentle inspirational read many associate with Christian fiction. The first edition of this novel was a finalist in the 2013 Word Awards (suspense category). This is the second edition, independently published and with minor revisions. If you like issue-driven, faith-filled Christian suspense and you believe in the power of prayer and forgiveness, grab your copy of Heaven's Prey today.

Wind is everywhere and nowhere. Wind is the circulatory system of the earth, and its nervous system, too. Energy and information flow through it. It brings warmth and water, enriches and strips away the soil, aerates the globe. Wind shapes the lives of animals, humans among them. Trade follows the path of the wind, as empire also does. Wind made the difference in wars between the Greeks and Persians, the Mongols and the Japanese. Wind helped to destroy the Spanish Armada. And wind is no less determining of our inner lives: the föhn, mistral, sirocco, Santa Ana, and other “ill winds” of the world are correlated with disease, suicide, and even murder. Heaven’s Breath is an encyclopedic and enchanting book that opens dazzling new perspectives on history, nature, and humanity.

For the first time in English, Stephen Earle tells the epic story of Nakamura Tempu, one of Japan’s most inspirational twentieth-century thinkers and teachers, whose mind-body approach to personal transformation influenced hundreds of thousands, including prominent leaders in government, industry, and the arts. Earle chronicles Tempu’s origins in the samurai tradition, his genius for martial arts, and his work in Manchuria as a spy during the Russo-Japan War of 1904–1905. He relates how, after escaping a Russian firing squad, Tempu contracted tuberculosis; how he embarked on a search for a cure that led to the halls of Columbia University, the salons of Paris, and the foothills of the Himalayas, where he practiced yoga under the tutelage of an Indian guru; and how he not only regained his health but also underwent a spiritual transformation. This transformation laid the groundwork for the secular and practical methodology for self-realization and the cultivation of will that Tempu developed and disseminated to the sick and socially disenfranchised, as well as to princes and prime ministers. Over the course of nine decades, Tempu’s philosophy of mind-body unification has charted a clear and accessible path to mastery over hardship and the ability to meet life’s challenges head-on. Yet, the man, his story, his teachings, and his legacy remain almost unknown outside of Japan—until now. In addition to demonstrating how Tempu’s teachings were significant to Japan’s reconstruction and economic rise following the devastation of World War II, Heaven’s Wind is also an engaging historical narrative, an account of personal transformation, and a clear guide to the practical philosophy of mind-body unity.
