Why? Why are Children killing Children? Why are schools becoming battlegrounds? Explanations for the murder and mayhem abound - culture, media, parents, guns, even brain dysfunction - but do the explanations fit the crimes? What about the nagging feeling that we really haven't gotten to the bottom of the matter, that there must be something else? Tom Allen believes that there is something else and explanation that generally has been ignored, dismissed or simply misunderstood. Thee is a central reason behind these confounding crimes.

Stray Affections, Baumbich Charlene Ann,
2 Baumbich Charlene Ann, Stray Affections
Water Book Press 2009 0307444716 / 9780307444714 Paperback New 
The last thing that Cassandra Higgins expects out of her Sunday is to be mesmerized at a collectors’ convention by a snowglobe. She’s enjoying some mommy time, with husband Ken at home tending their brood of four young boys, when she’s utterly charmed by the one-of-a kind globe containing figures of three dogs and a little girl with hair the color of her own. She can’t resist taking the unique globe home– even if means wrestling another shopper for it! The beautiful snowglobe sparks long-dormant memories for Cassie, of her beloved Grandpa Wonky, the stray she rescued as a child, and the painful roots of her combative relationship with her mother, “Bad Betty” Kamrowski. Life in Wanonishaw, Minnesota is never dull, though, and Cassie keeps the recollections at bay, busy balancing her boys, her home daycare operation, and being a good friend to best pal Margret. But after a strange–flurrious, as Cassie deems it–moment happens with the remarkable snowglobe, Cassie and the people she loves are swirled into a tumultuous, yet grace-filled, and life-changing journey. With the quirky, close-knit Midwestern small-town feel that made Charlene Ann Baumbich’s acclaimed Dearest Dorothy novels so popular, Stray Affections invites you to experience the laughter and the healing of second chances.

Divine Appointments, Baumbich, Charlene Ann
3 Baumbich, Charlene Ann Divine Appointments
Warebook Press 2010 0307444724 / 9780307444721 Paperback New 
With the big 5-0 fast approaching, Josie Brooks begins to question her structured, picture-perfect (mid)life. Josie Brooks, at the age of 47, thought she was leading an enviable single life. A successful consultant, she calls her own shots, goes where the money is, and never needs to compromise. But her precisely managed world begins to falter during a Chicago contract when an economic downturn, a bleeding heart boss, and the loyalty and kindness between endangered employees ding her coat of armor. Throw in hot flashes, a dose of loneliness, a peculiar longing for intimacy, an unquenchable thirst—not to mention a mysterious snowglobe with a serene landscape, complete with a flowing river and lush greenery that seems to be beckoning her in—and Josie’s buttoned-up life is on the verge of coming completely undone. Maybe her solitary existence isn’t as fulfilling as she has convinced herself to believe. It will take a few new friends, a mystical encounter, and an unexpected journey to set Josie on her own path to “right-sizing” and making the life changes that really matter. Filled with laugh-out loud moments and a gentle dash of inspiration, Divine Appointments is another heartwarming charmer from a master storyteller.

Krista Mueller is in a good place. She’s got a successful career as a professor of history; she’s respected and well-liked; and she lives hundreds of miles from her hometown and the distant mother she could never please. It’s been more than a decade since Alzheimer’s disease first claimed Charlotte Mueller’s mind, but Krista has dutifully kept her mother in a first-class nursing home. Now Charlotte is dying of heart failure and, surprised by her own emotions, Krista rushes to Taos, New Mexico, to sit at her estranged mother’s side as she slips away. Battling feelings of loss, abandonment, and relief, Krista is also unsettled by her proximity to Dane McConnell, director of the nursing home—and, once upon a time, her first love. Dane’s kind and gentle spirit—and a surprising discovery about her mother—make Krista wonder if she can at last close the distance between her and her mother … and open the part of her heart she thought was lost forever. “A timeless tale, to be kept every day in the heart as a reminder that forgiveness is a gift to self.” —PATRICIA HICKMAN, author of The Pirate Queen Retail 13.99 Our Price 7.99

Marriage Under Fire, Dobson, Dr. James
11 Dobson, Dr. James Marriage Under Fire
Multnomah 2004 1590524314 / 9781590524312 Hardcover New 
Why Not "Gay Marriage"? Why shouldn't the definition of family be broadened and modernized? What harm could be done by two consenting adults who love one another coming together to create a binding union? In this succinct analysis of the issue, Dr. James Dobson presents a compelling case against the legalization of “marriage” between homosexuals and the dire ramifications our nation could face: Same-sex marriage will destroy the fundamental principles of marriage, parenthood, and gender. Families will be increasingly unstable as their definition expands to incorporate multiple “moms” or “dads”. Legalization of gay marriages will lead to polygamy and other alternatives to one-man/one-woman unions. The divorce rate will be higher, making our children less safe. Marriage Under Fire provides the foundations of a battle plan for the preservation of traditional values in our nation. Our response could not be clearer. The well-being of the family, and thus our nation, hangs in the balance. Now is the time to speak out in defense of marriage and the American family.

The American Prophecies Ancient Scriptures Reveal Our Nation's Future, Evans, Michael D.
14 Evans, Michael D. The American Prophecies Ancient Scriptures Reveal Our Nation's Future
Warner Books 2004 044652252X / 9780446522526 Hardcover New 
New York Times bestselling author Michael D. Evans explains ancient biblical prophecies about current events that affect America's role and destiny in the twenty-first century. 'Why do they hate us?' That's the anguished cry of Amer-icans who still seek an explanation for the terrorist attacks on the United States two years ago and the continued political violence against U.S. soldiers, diplomats, tourists, and missionaries. Today, Americans live in constant fear of the next major act of domestic terrorism-but instead of gaining international sympathy, the U.S. finds allied support more tepid than ever. Now, Michael D. Evans sheds light on political events from a prophetic perspective in a thought- provoking look at the biblical prophecies written more than 2,000 years ago that predicted these current hostilities. America is targeted, he says, because of its friendship with Israel, its foundation on Judeo-Christian principles, and its basis in democracy. He also warns that the attacks will continue and that Scripture predicts a demise for the United States if it compromises its allegiance to Israel and its constitution's moral foundations.

Canadian sisters Melanie and Joanne are stunned to hear they've inherited their uncle's beachfront summerhouse in Mexico. With a snap, a trip is planned: They'll travel opulently by cruise ship to Ensenada, zip over to San Felipe, sign a few papers at the bank, and the tropical hideaway will be theirs. What they don't expect is a spa treatment gone loco, snails and cactus on their dinner plates, risky ocean dips, a cross-country desert drive, a dishy doctor, or a Federale who doesn't speak English! Fortunately, some problems really can be solved with coconut cake and, if necessary, a water fight. The beachfront property - and what it takes to get them there - becomes a gift beyond their wildest wishes as these Sisterchicks relinquish themselves to the dreams God has for them ... all under the sombrero of His grace.
