As the leader of the "preps," a group of mean-spirited high school kids, teenager Samantha Blakley enjoys belittling and teasing the less popular kids. After all, if you're not popular, you're just not cool right? But Samantha's notion of what is cool and what is right are about to drastically change. When she suffers a terrible accident that leaves her in a coma, she suddenly wakes up in the body of Virginia Morris, the girl she has tormented for years. Now instead of a slender blonde with a stunning complexion, she's overweight, has short, red curls, and freckles. Horrified at the discovery, Samantha panics, but has no other option but to live Virginia's life until she finds a way to go back to her own body. School is a complete nightmare as Samantha suffers the wrath of her friends, the preps. But the nightmare is not over. She wakes up each morning in a different body of someone she has hurt in the past, and she must endure grueling days of their misery. Samantha soon realizes the suffering she has caused Virginia and the others. But can she ever make it right, or will she be doomed to live in torment for the rest of her life? If You Only Knew takes a hard look at the devastating effects of bullying and how compassion and understanding can heal a broken soul.

Listen Up, Dads! Your Teen Is Talking to You! As exasperating as parenting can be during these volatile years, your teen is depending on you for steady faithfulness, love, and guidance. And because teens often find words elusive and expression difficult, they probably haven’t told you the things they wish you somehow automatically knew. So let Dad, If You Only Knew... be your guide. Josh Weidmann, just out of the teen years himself, joins his father, James, to help dads understand where their kids are coming from. It’s a messy world they live in, and meeting them in it is no simple task. But knowing these essentials now makes fatherhood eight times easier! Welcome to Your Teen’s World It doesn’t matter if you have the most picture-perfect, ideal-in-every-way teen or one who’s in full-swing rebellion. That teen you love is a “riddle wrapped in a mystery.” No father can know what his teen is really thinking. That’s why youth communicator Josh Weidmann teamed with his father, Jim, to help you bridge the gap. In Dad, If You Only Knew…you’ll get an open, honest glimpse inside the teen mind. Josh’s extensive research, combined with pointed direction from a father’s heart, provide you with the practical guidance you need to establish a healthy, thriving father-teen relationship. It’s one you desire, your teen needs, and you both can’t afford to miss. Story Behind the Book “The resounding cry of teens for their fathers rings in my ear. I have been speaking to youth for five years and the greatest void I see in teens’ lives is the one left by their dad. I am only twenty-three years old myself, and to this day I can say that my dad is the most influential man in my life. Because of his impact, I have asked him share in this book. We have written this message in hopes of helping dads reengage in the vital father-teen relationship.” —Josh Weidmann
What you and I have experienced in life began before we came into existence. One of the greatest enemies of the present is the ability not to understand the historical foundation that is the structure of our lives. Have you ever heard the words, “what you don’t know won’t hurt you” or “what goes on in this house stays in this house”? Many of us have spent years living behind these words. We have allowed these words to stunt our growth. The author expresses to his readers the importance of understanding the quote; “the past holds the key to the present, and the present holds access to future.” The author explores some historical implications that have had an effect on the current lifestyle of many individuals. He elaborates to women the importance of knowing what your name means. Leaving women with the quote; “I was Responsible for waiting on you, I was Accountable in my search for you, I was Consistent in finding you, and now I have to be Persistent that I don’t lose you.” He helps women/men to understand the difference between Bruh and Men. Leaving men with the quote; “When the man is out of place, the woman becomes displaced, and the children become misplaced.” He goes on to express to parents and educators that the key to saving our children is through communication. We must learn to meet our children where they are by understanding the language they speak. He leaves parents and educators with the Cherokee proverb; “If you listen to the whispers, you won’t have to hear the screams.” The author leaves his readers with the words: “If you leave and grow, you can come back and plant.”

If she only knew . . . Would she have made different choices? If she only knew that escaping the Nazi regime and serving time in the military in Egypt would save her from subsequent years of oppression under the communist regime—would she have made the ill-fated decision to return to Slovakia post-World War II? If Gigi's mother only knew that the note left under her door could lead her to a bridge that was blown up minutes later, would she have followed the path her lover tried to lead her on? If Gigi's mother only knew that the decisions she made would affect Gigi's life and bring upon her abuse, incest, betrayal of love and country, would she have made the same decisions?At thirteen, Gigi made the decision to escape the newly Russian-occupied Slovakia to the country she thought would be her saving grace—Israel.

"She is a godly woman." "True love waits." Are these phrases and many others about gender truly based in scripture, or based on dusty, outdated stereotypes? And how do these perceptions repress people, especially women, from fully expressing their faith? If Eve Only Knew: Freeing Yourself from Biblical Womanhood and Becoming All God Means for You to Be offers a fresh perspective on gender and the Bible, destroying trumped-up, captive-creating messages with the freeing proclamation grounded in Jesus' ministry and found everywhere in scripture: that we are all created in God's image, and by relying on our gifts and skills - rather than on gender-designed roles - we become all God means for us to be.
