Carvin’ Marvin was always at home with encyclopedias, pajamas, and spruce gum, but he’s now in for the ride…um…run of his life. He has researched everything about each part... More > of the Maine woods (except who they are). There are lots of facts out there, including Trillium Erectum and Ursus Americanus, but Marvin never heard of any shadow demons until the new girl landed in town. He also never heard of Changing Girls or magical moss pee, nor wind-calling staves. He is ‘informed’ of all this (and more) while he just can’t rid himself of her. Her of colorful clothes, storm dancing, farting, bullying, and too much pretending.
So yeah, Marvin’s tidy world has been a lot different since she arrived. He sees things he never noticed before. Maybe there is a little truth to her tales. Maybe there are Protection Rivers. Maybe there is a Shadow Demon, hard telling now.< Less

Get Your Armor On is very personal to me as it was born out of a desire to help my children learn to cope with the drugs, the language and inappropriate behaviors they witnessed on a daily basis in... More > school and in the world.
My prayer for this book is twofold: first, that the words and the scripture these teens read would become deeply rooted in their spirits and as a result, instill courage, wisdom, and confidence; further empowering their walk in a way they have never before experienced. Second, that parents and their children would develop a more open dialogue with each other, forging a strong, unbreakable bond between the two; that would mightily reduce the power of the enemy. My hope is that both are encouraged to seek a more intimate relationship with God so that no one goes into battle unprepared again – ever.< Less
The main intention of this exercise is to pen down a few selected but important episodes from The Holy Bible, written in man-or-woman in-the-street spoken Krio (Sierra Leone language vernacular),... More > which can be fluently read to persons and groups in different parts of the country to support Sunday Schools, Bible Study Groups and similar religious institutions, and which man-or-woman-in-the-street hearers and listeners can, with little or no difficulty, grasp and understand. It has not been planned as something written with highly scholastic, linguistic, phonetic symbols which, for the time being, only a few favoured ones can readily unravel. This exercise is written with the aid of the twenty six letters of the English alphabet. To talk in Krio, to read Krio properly, we cannot help gobbling up, swallowing, or sometimes quite unconsciously retaining parts of certain consonants or syllables inside our guttural canals.< Less

It was in this lonely state that I finally was able to achieve a high state of tranquility. I managed to purify the temple of my spirit, in large part by becoming a runner and reading the Holy Bible in solitude.< Less
The Christmas story in the Bible is a beautiful account of the birth of the Messiah, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. He was born in obscurity in a little town named "Bethlehem," a Hebrew term... More > that means "house of bread." And how ironic, for this man was the Bread of Life, and all who come to Him will never hunger and will never thirst (John 6:35). That is why the story of Christmas, the birth of the Messiah, is so important. Since Jesus is the reason for the season, let us make sure we understand completely who He is. For who Christ is to us determines who we are both in this world and in eternity.< Less
This is the story of Keith Stanworth, a man who was shaped by his mother and father, the land he grew up on, the people around him, and the faith he was taught. More than that, it is the story of a... More > man who took full responsibility for what he became—for good or bad.
When he was a young man, his teachers, coaches, and leaders influenced him greatly.

In both careers, he had some of the most wonderful—and frightening—experiences of his life.
This memoir shares the story of the life of Keith Stanworth. Sometimes people see the same things differently, but this is the way he saw it.< Less
