For Love or Honor

FOR LOVE OR HONOR
by Sarah M. Eden

From the moment they met, Marjie's heart has belonged to handsome Captain Stanley Jonquil, younger brother of the Earl of Lampton. But six long months ago, when Stanley's sense of honor required that he do as he had sworn and return to the Continent to fight in defense of King and country, neither Stanley nor Marjie could have dreamed what the cost of his service would be.

It has been ages since Stanley last wrote, and Marjie and the Jonquil family are plagued by his unknown fate—until the day he unexpectedly reappears. Marjie's joy, however, is quickly shadowed by confusion—the aloof, battle-worn soldier before her is not the man he once was. In the wake of Stanley's blatant disinterest in renewing their acquaintance, Marjie's devastation turns to determination as she vows to help him find peace. But his scars run far deeper than anyone realizes. Despite his feelings for her, Stanley believes Marjie deserves a man whose hands are not stained with the violence of battlefields and whose mind and heart are not haunted by the horrors he has seen.

Honor requires Stanley to return once more to the life he has grown to despise, one he knows will destroy him in the end, even as his heart beckons him to stay with Marjie, the only woman he could ever love, and the promise, at last, of redemption.

I adore Sarah M. Eden's books!

Especially love the Jonquil brother series!
What a GREAT book!

TRIPWIRE
by Traci Hunter Abramson

Jane Napierski is back at work at the job she loves—being a personal assistant to her friend Sienna Blake, a rising star actress. The duo is on location in Virginia Beach to film Sienna's new TV series, along with costar Reed Forrester—the man with whom the world thinks Sienna is in love. Wrong.

Sienna's heart actually belongs to her fiance, Craig, a Navy Seal with the Saint Squad. Craig must fly under the radar if he is to keep Sienna safe from this world of terrorists and toxic bombs. And Reed has no problem pretending to date his old friend Sienna simply because it means he can spend time learning more about Jane. Making a TV series is grueling work but not nearly as difficult as the treacherous adventure that is about to begin with a simple photo taken in the wrong place at the wrong time—an image worth killing for.

When Craig returns to the United States to spend time with Sienna, he's not expecting to spend that time protecting her and Jane. Frightening incidents targeting the two women rapidly escalate, and as Craig and his Saint Squad investigate a tangled conspiracy, they find themselves tracking, here at home, the terrorists they have searched for across the globe. But can they shut the terrorists down in time to save Jane, Reed, and Sienna?

UNSHATTERED
by Carol Decker

On June 10, 2008, Carol Decker walked through the hospital doors a healthy woman with flu-like symptoms and early labor contractions. Three months later, she returned home a blind, triple-amputee struggling to bond with a daughter she would never see.

Unshattered: Overcoming Tragedy and Choosing a Beautiful Life recounts Carol's fight for survival against sepsis and its life-shattering complications.

She travels through the darkness of trauma, anxiety, and depression to arrive, literally, at the peak of a mountain with a heart full of gratitude and love. More than a story of triumph over tragedy, the book offers inspiring life-lessons and insights which can help readers to do more than endure unimaginable pain and darkness in their own lives.

The Atoning One

THE ATONING ONE
by Robert L. Millet

The Atonement of Jesus Christ is—and should be—at the very center of all we teach. Everything else is peripheral. Everything else is either connected to this central, saving truth or it has no power to bless or change us. It is vital that we understand that through this singular act by our loving Lord, we can be reawakened, redeemed, reclaimed, and restored when we fall short or wander off the gospel path. At the same time, we must recognize that although the Lord’s Atonement is at the heart of God’s plan, we cannot and should not attribute everything good that happens in our lives to that Atonement. Both the first and third members of the Godhead have a myriad of ways in which They too bless the children of our Father in Heaven.

In The Atoning One, acclaimed author and experienced educator Robert L. Millet describes the mystery and majesty of who Jesus Christ is; His singular saving role in the plan of salvation; how the Father and the Holy Ghost are inextricably linked with Christ in the redemption of humankind; and how members of the Church can come to comprehend and rely upon divine grace. As Brother Millet teaches, we rejoice in the fact that Latter-day Saints are now more Christ-centered and Atonement-centered than ever before, but we must ensure that how we talk about and approach our Savior’s offering is done with care. This book provides insightful guidance for deepening your understanding and appreciation of the Savior’s ultimate gift.

A PERFECT READ FOR THIS EASTER WEEKEND

DESTINY CAME KNOCKING
by Cindy Roland Anderson

When Piper Jensen’s dog has a litter of puppies that aren’t anything like their purebred mother, she immediately suspects the culprit responsible for the mishap is her neighbor’s derelict dog.

Seeking restitution, Piper confronts the owner, Gabe Wesson, a single father of two children that likes to keep to himself. She isn’t prepared for Gabe to be so handsome, nor so disagreeable, and is irritated by his demands for a paternity test to prove his dog is the sire.

As she and Gabe try to work things out, they both fight a growing attraction neither one of them want. But when Piper finds her heart falling in love with his children, it might be the catalyst that tips the scale towards a destiny she never dreamed possible.

A FAMILIAR FEAR
by Kathi Oram Peterson

Ex-FBI agent Riley Scott lives each day with the scars of her former career. After the murder of her husband and the recent attempt on her own life by the Russian mafia, her heart is irrevocably broken. Agate Island seems like the perfect place to begin building a new future for herself and her teenage son, yet even before the ferry docks at their new home, Riley realizes there will be no escape for her. There, on the boat, is mafia boss Maksimillian Petruso—the man who took everything from her. The man she killed.

Matthew Taggart knows who Riley is and understands her reaction to his resemblance to Maksimillian Petruso. But Matthew is nothing like his estranged criminal father. So far, he has been able to hide from that evil world. However, he's afraid Riley's appearance on the island may lead his family's mafia connections to his doorstep. After all, she is the agent who took down his father. Matthew needs to leave town. Fast. Unfortunately, when the family wants to find him, there is nowhere he can hide. Now he and Riley are thrown together in a dangerous connection, and learning to trust each other is their only hope of survival.

COURAGE TO 
BE YOU
by Gail Miller

Gail Miller might seem as though she has it easy—now. But she has experienced challenges in nearly every aspect of her life: financial struggles, family trials, and personal loss. Through it all, she has had courage to move forward and remain grounded in her faith.

In Courage to Be You, Gail encourages readers to find their own path—with the help of the Lord. Her candid stories and personal insights about faith, hard work, grief, and many more topics are both fascinating and inspiring.

"I hope as you read about my journey," she writes, "you will recognize a gem or two of truth that may be useful in your journey. Hopefully, you'll recognize you're not alone in a confusing and complicated world."

Reading this book is like sitting down with a good friend and visiting about the things that matter most. It will fill you with courage and determination to be the best "you" possible.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I loved this book!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Read what others are saying about it:

“I’ve long admired the Miller family and always wondered whether their matriarch, Gail, was the secret ingredient behind their myriad accomplishments. After reading Courage to Be You, the wondering is over. What a strong, humble, loving leader, wife and mother! Her courageous story – and her life – are an inspiration the world needs.”
John Bytheway, Bestselling Author, Speaker and Educator

“Because I admire Gail Miller so much, it was such a privilege to be invited into her private thoughts and to better understand what drives her. She’s so powerful and intelligent, yet so warm and kind. I love her courage! This is such a well-written, thoroughly enjoyable book.”
Jenny Oaks Baker, Grammy Nominee and Billboard No. 1 Violinist

“In Courage to Be You, Gail Miller becomes the wise friend and life coach you’ve always wished for. Beautifully written and packed with personal experiences, this book offers valuable advice about what matters most: faith, family, friendship, hard work, and creating your own definition of success. Learning how Gail found her own voice will give you the courage to find yours. This book is a treasure.”
Brad Wilcox, author of The Continuous Atonement and Changed through His Grace

“I confess that at first I thought Gail Miller's book Courage to be You was for women. But reading about her journey as a stay-at-home mom, wife, mother, grandmother, corporate executive and humanitarian makes me want to be a better man.”
Michael McLean, Singer, songwriter, creator of The Forgotten Carols

“Courage to Be You surprised me: I had not expected to read so revealing and genuine an account from someone so famous. Gail opens up her life for us—and that of her iconic husband Larry. We find trials and heartache we may not have expected from people so successful, and we witness enduring images of the lessons for a meaningful life.”
Mitt Romney

I loved reading every bit of this. What a refreshing read! She shares incredible experiences and lessons with compelling honesty, openness, humor and compassion. I didn't want it to end, I wanted more!
Al Carraway, Award-winning speaker and author of, "More Than the Tattooed Mormon," and "Cheers to Eternity.


“I was drawn into Courage to be You after the first few sentences. I immediately wanted to know more about Gail and what she has learned. By the time I finished the book, I felt like she was a friend. She shares insights in a way that feels like we had gone to lunch and talked over a bowl of soup and a salad with extra dressing. “

Left Standing

LEFT STANDING
by Mason Wells, Tyler Beddoes, and Billy Hallowell

“I decided to be a survivor, 
not a victim.”


Most people can’t imagine experiencing a terrorist attack, let alone multiple bombings.

Left with third-degree burns, shrapnel wounds, and a shaken spirit, Mason Wells chose to leave behind his anger and hate in the face of terrorism and instead turn to God. Mason recounts how his faith eventually allowed him to forgive the men behind the attacks that nearly cost him his life and the lives of so many others.

This miraculous true story will change how you see your own struggles and teach you the true power of forgiveness, perseverance, and love.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I am always impressed with those who can forgive a terrible injustice that happened to them. This book will leave you with a hope that you can love and forgive and continue to move forward 
despite your own trials.

PEACE FOR A PALESTINIAN
by Sahar Qumsiyeh

Sahar Qumsiyeh was born into a loving Christian family in Jerusalem and raised in Beit Sahour, near Bethlehem. Growing up in a country torn apart by political upheaval, Sahar struggled with feelings of hopelessness and anger as she watched her people being persecuted, tormented, and even killed.

As a young adult, Sahar received a scholarship to an American university. While there, she was baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. But staying true to her new faith was put to the test when Sahar returned home to Palestine.

In Peace for a Palestinian, Sahar shares her experience desperately searching for peace and joy only to find that true peace lies not in external resolution but in following the Savior. As she explains, "We may live in a place with barriers, checkpoints, and restrictions, but we can feel liberated by His Atonement."

Whether your own obstacles are great or small, Sahar's message will help you discover that the true source of peace and comfort is the same for all of us.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This book is AMAZING!
I cannot even imagine living where there are checkpoints to get anywhere--even to go to church.
Sahar is an incredible person filled with hope and love.
Her story is remarkable -- May we all become more like her.

Ashes on the Moor

ASHES ON 
THE MOOR
by Sarah M. Eden

The life of an impoverished schoolteacher is not one Evangeline Blake would have chosen for herself. Torn from her home and her beloved sister and sent to work in the gritty factory town of Smeatley, Evangeline must prove herself to her grandfather, a man who values self-reliance above all else, before he will grant her access to her inheritance. Raised to be a lady of refinement, she hasn't any of the skills necessary to manage on her own nor does she have the first idea how to be a teacher. But failure means never being with her sister again.

Alone and overwhelmed, she turns to the one person in town who seems to know how she feels—Dermot McCormick, an Irish brick mason who is as far from home and as out of place as she is. Despite the difference in their classes and backgrounds, Evangeline and Dermot's tentative friendship deepens and grows. Her determination and compassion slowly earn her the faith and confidence of the skeptical residents of Smeatley, who become like the family she has lost.

But when a secret from her past comes to light, Evangeline faces an impossible choice: seize the opportunity to reclaim her former life and rejoin her sister or fight for the new life she has struggled to build for herself—a life that includes Dermot.

Ashes on the Moor is the inspiring love story of one Victorian woman's courage to fight against all odds, and the man whose quiet strength gives her the confidence to keep trying.

Russell M. Nelson: Father, Surgeon, Apostle

RUSSELL M. NELSON
Father, Surgeon, Apostle
by Spencer J. Condie

As a latter-day apostle, Elder Russell M. Nelson is known worldwide for his tireless service in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Many people, however, are not familiar with his pioneering work in the field of open-heart surgery, the life-prolonging operation he performed on President Spencer W. Kimball, his role in helping open Eastern Bloc countries to the preaching of the gospel, and his loving efforts to build relations with the people of China.

In Russell M. Nelson: Father, Surgeon, Apostle, readers are treated to an intimate portrayal that will help us come to know Elder Nelson as a man of testimony, a dedicated husband and father of ten, and a servant whose principal desire since his youth has been to serve God's children.

Full of insight and inspiration, this biography will take its place among other important works that chronicle the lives of the Lord's latter-day servants.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I started reading this book this morning.

Did you know he speaks French, Russian, Spanish, and Chinese?
Did you know he performed the first open-heart surgery in Utah?
Did you know he received the Gold Heart Award in 2002?
Did you know he has 9 daughters and 1 son?

I am anxious to learn more about our newly ordained prophet.

SIX DAYS TO LIVE
by Kenneth M. Page

Sometimes disaster is simply a matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Take Addison Roberts, for example: it is a deadly coincidence that in a crowded parking lot one day, she catches the eye of a dangerous criminal on the run. In his desperation to evade the police, what he needs is a way out—and Addison and her car are his ticket to escape.

Lieutenant Chase Roberts, on leave from his military assignment, is anxious to be reunited with his wife. Yet as night falls and Addison fails to appear, Chase feels a rising sense of foreboding. Hours quickly become days as he desperately works with authorities to find the woman he loves. But after being named a person of interest, Chase is warned away from the investigation—a mandate he ignores. Chase will stop at nothing to find his wife, and what he ultimately discovers is terrifying: Addison has been carjacked by a man who has killed before and has no scruples about killing again . . .

Escape From Rwanda

0 comments
ESCAPE FROM RWANDA


John Yves Bizimana was only seven years old when his family was caught up in the Rwandan genocide. In Escape from Rwanda, he tells of their horrifying escape and subsequent experiences as refugees, traveling with his widowed mother and his younger brother and sister from country to country, searching for safety and a place to call home. When they finally reach Zimbabwe, they expect their lives will settle down — they don't suspect that even greater trials are yet to come.

John's story is one of almost unimaginable hardship — trudging through corpses that litter the road out of Rwanda, huddling under cardboard boxes for shelter, depending on strangers and governmental agencies for sustenance. His story is one of poverty, loneliness, and death, but it is also a story of faith, hope, determination, and miracles. This unique first-person account is interwoven with stories of others' saving acts of kindness and compassion in a seemingly compassion-less world.

This unforgettable story of rising above all odds reminds us that life itself is a blessing and that hope should be the driving force of our lives.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
John Yves Bizimana truly has an amazing story to share.
I cannot even imagine going through all that he has.
He really is an example of "faith, hope, and survival."

My favorite quote:
"In the end our lives will fall into place; 
if they haven't, then it is not yet the end."

Seeing Women of the Bible in Ourselves

Eve, Mary, Hannah, Esther, Ruth, Naomi, Jochebed--we are inspired by these and other amazing women of the Bible, but can we relate to them? Do we have anything in common with them? Can we see pieces of them in ourselves? In this booklet we look at these great women, and others in the Bible, and the characteristics each one represents. Hopefully, we will discover that we are more alike than different and we truly do carry pieces of them in us.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I love the way Michelle combines humor with humble honor of the women whose stories we read of in the Bible. This book will open your heart to these amazing women who went before us and will allow you to see that you have pieces of greatness like them within you.

CAMERA WARS

Camera Wars. Love in Focus. Capturing Love has never been so hard.

For Coco Beaumont, capturing love is easy. It's her job. She uses her camera and films happy couples in love with her wedding videography business. In her personal life, Coco's heart is captured thousands of miles away by her boyfriend, who builds orphanages in South America.

While filming for her roommate Liz, Coco's focus becomes blurred. The photographer for Liz and Tyler's wedding gets in her way and under her skin. She is torn between what she has waited for, and what is right in front of her.

Peter Jorgensen is hired for his college roommate's wedding. But signing up for the job comes with more than he bargained for. Though they start off on the wrong foot, Peter is determined to show Coco that capturing love is more than perfect predictability and a setting on the camera.

Coco is so focused on seeing the love between everyone else, she is oblivious to the love blooming in her own life. It will take a reset on her aperture to see what has been in front of her eyes the entire time.

THE GOSPEL AT 30,000 FEET
by Dieter F. Uchtdorf

President Dieter F. Uchtdorf has earned a reputation among members of the Church for using his decades of experience as a pilot to draw gospel metaphors. He has even joked about the frequency of the phenomenon from the pulpit, once noting that a congregation may be asking, "What does this have to do with an airplane?" President Uchtdorf's ability to draw on real-life experience and share easily interpreted analogies has endeared him to Church members the world over.

This new book brings together many of those stories of flight that President Uchtdorf has used in his ministry. In this colorful, inviting format, more than 20 of his best-loved stories come together under five major themes: Principles of Flight, Lift, Guidance on the Journey, Weathering the Turbulence, and Our Eternal Destination.

Great for personal edification, lesson preparation, family home evenings, or meaningful gift giving, this book brings the lessons from 30,000 feet in the air into the home, teaching us about this journey of life and the joy we'll find in reaching our ultimate destination.

Safe House

SAFE HOUSE
by Traci Hunter Abramson

The guardians, the shadowy heroes of the top-secret program designed to protect members of the most elite government organizations, are being hunted down one by one. There is a single explanation: a traitor must be embedded somewhere in their midst. But if they themselves are the target, who will protect them?

CIA operative Renee Niezen has heard tales of the guardians, though she’s never really believed in their existence—until she is approached by Charlotte, an old friend who desperately needs her help to stop the systematic destruction of the guardian program. Renee accepts the plea for assistance, but not everyone is thrilled to have her on the team. Kade—one of the last guardians standing—is unimpressed with Renee’s qualifications and turns instead to the legendary Saint Squad for help. But when Renee is caught in the crosshairs, Kade must set aside his antagonism for the woman in order to protect her. Their grudging alliance soon develops into much more—but before the pair can examine their feelings, their investigation takes a dramatic twist. With lives on the line, Renee and Kade must use their spy training at every turn as they draw dangerously close to the shocking truth.
