Featured Book: One Sip at a Time: Learning to Live in Provence by Keith Van Sickle

33927852Keith and Val had a dream – to live in Provence, the land of brilliant sunlight, charming hilltop villages and the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean.

Featured Book: Helicopter Mom by Bethany Douglas


We’ve all heard the term ‘helicopter mom’- parents who ‘hover’ over their children in an attempt to keep them happy, safe, healthy, and alive. They hover because they fear. Helicopter Mom directly addresses the real life terror that all parents face with fearing for their children. Specifically designed for mothers, it gives a Christian, Biblical perspective on how to overcome these fears from the unique point of view of a helicopter flight nurse and mom who has vast experience in ‘hovering’. It takes lessons learned over my years as a flight nurse and puts them into practical, every day, Christian applications. There are anecdotes, stories, aviation information, and more that all knit together to bring about Biblical lessons and encouragement that all parents can easily relate to. Each chapter takes helicopter and EMS/nursing stories and knits them into an ongoing narrative that slowly paints a full picture of how to overcome fear. It is a sassy, funny, in-your-face, yet spiritually grounded journey that will have people laughing and learning spiritual truths all at the same time. This is a totally different approach to ‘self-help’ books, strap in and get ready to lift! Continue reading “Featured Book: Helicopter Mom by Bethany Douglas”

Legendary singer ebq4stand musician Charles Wright shares his story of growing up in the racially-charged rural south of the 1940s in his autobiography, Up: From Where We’ve Come

Best known for the hit single Express Yourself, Charles Wright’s songs have been covered by countless artists throughout the decades. But before his rise to musical fame, Wright’s life was fraught with tribulation and tragedy.

Growing up on a cotton plantation in rural Mississippi, he was forced from a young age to harvest massive amounts of cotton each day or face a beating by his father. Though hard workers, Wright’s family lived in abject poverty and endured much hardship at the hands of the plantation owner, a ruthless sharecropper by the name of Edward Miles. Filled with the memories and events that made up Wright’s childhood during a very turbulent time in American history, UP: From Where We’ve Come is a powerful story of human struggle, and of victory in overcoming enormous adversity to achieve your dreams.
