In this beautifully illustrated book, Ayla Mae Wild draws upon her own experiences leading wilderness trips, and creates a series of memorable princesses who overcome obstacles, fears and injury as... More > they interact with the wild. Girls and boys alike will enjoy the adventures, from rock climbing and boating to hiking and exploring slot canyons. Beneath the surface story of these adventures is the underlying theme of self-rescue; the "princesses" in Wild's book do not stick around in high towers waiting for a prince. In one lovely illustration, we see a tower left vacant, a rope out the window, and we imagine the princess "on belay". From glitter as magic to rainbows to campfire ballet, 'The Princesses I Know' will delight, empower and inspire.

Some of the topics include: growing up in Brooklyn, dysfunctional family, hormonal changes, rites of passage, love affairs and some dental confessions.

We haven’t done very well in our search for peace. We have all made destructive choices with predictable regularity in an attempt to take what we desire. These destructive decisions guarantee... More > turmoil rather than peace.
We will not have peace in the world until we have peace within ourselves. The trouble is that most of us have no idea how to find it. We long for it. We are beggars for peace. But we have no one to show us the way.
There is a way to peace. Beggars for Peace explains the ancient path that leads to inner peace. This ancient way begins with facing alienation and leads those who will follow it to reconciliation with God.
This book describes the way for peace, although not everyone who reads this will see it. The path to peace takes us beyond what our senses and technology can perceive. It is a counterintuitive and countercultural movement. Join in.
You and I do not find peace. It finds us.< Less

Winnie of the Wensley House
By Wendy Lewellen
Winnie Lewellen served as hostess at worldfamous
Chautauqua Institution’s Wensley
House for three decades. The... More > nine-room guest
house provided accommodations for the best
and the brightest who provided the program
for this cultural and recreational mecca in

Winnie’s daughter, Wendy Lewellen, draws
from her mother’s thirty-year accumulation of

this contribution to the celebrity-saturated
history of the Wensley House, of Chautauqua
Institution, and of Chautauqua County.
Proceeds from this labor of love will finance
the Winnie Lewellen Memorial Scholarship

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
