Whether we like it or not, our daily life routine can quickly turn into a repetitive mechanical process of dullness. When we go to school, work, or practice, do we actually engage 100 percent in the activities that we decide to take on? Well, probably not. The reason for this is simple: our level of engagement in an activity is constantly influenced by mood, attitude, and the staggering number of people that we interact with throughout the day. In other words, the terrible trio--mood, attitude, and those around us--subjects us to the mechanical motions of life. Perhaps the most comforting thing, though, is that as independent human beings, we have the ability to determine which parts of the trio actually end up affecting our everyday lives. This guide to hyping up your life provides several incredible tips on how to own the terrible trio. Once you implement these strategies in your life, nothing can bring you down. You can win--no matter what.

Volume One of No Matter What told of the author's childhood and of the many experiences that prepared him for a lifetime of work with troubled kids and adults. The author admitted to being a mountain man and a cowboy, and Volume One blended those two lifestyles into his work building the Bar D ranch for boys. Volume One closed with the hint of an approaching political storm with the state and a mad woman's vengeful determination to close the Bar D. Volume Two of No Matter What picks up the author's story where the political storm grows into a full and fiery fury leaving little but ashes and desolation. The author says of the fury: "The ornery blister won the battle, but she didn't win the war. After all, she did not have the power to take a life. Oh, she muddied the waters some but she couldn't stop the flow." Volume Two shares many traumatic and often humorous stories of a multitude of young people who have inhabited the author's life. He shares their stories and many of the secrets leading to their getting well. In 1998 during open heart surgery, the author moved in and out of a near death experience. He says it was not a "near" death experience because his medical records said he was "dead." The author believes the experience taught him many things which he cannot share at this time. He did, however, recover enough to finish his long and distinguished career as a mental therapist. The author and his wife, Jenenne, now live in Angel Valley with their faithful dog, Pepper, and their many horses.

A broken man. A fallen woman. One loving God...or so each hopes. Lance Corporal Scott James Gensicki was sent to war by God, asked by Him to go serve his country, to serve Him there. And all he has now is a darkness that is eating him from the inside out. Not a single part of Anja Rose Whittle was free. Not a single part of her still knew what it was like to live a normal life, a life with Him in it. God whispers, "Darkness, in all its irony, is a reminder of Me. It is a reminder that while there is darkness in this world, even inside you, it is so you can more clearly see the good, so you can see Me, even if I am not physically there. Faith is not only believing in what you can't see, but it is also believing what I can see." As your trustworthy guide, I am here to tell you their story-and your story-one that begs the question: will SJ and Anja give into the claws of darkness that threaten to bind them at every turn or will they claim God's promises of light that unlock a hopeful, bright future?
