"It is impossible to remain unmoved by Gregory's emotional, open memoir of surviving the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013. . . . This is a truly feel-good book that doesn't stint on the challenges that life throws at us."--Publishers Weekly, starred review ***** On April 15, 2013, Rebekah Gregory and her five-year-old son waited at the finish line of the Boston Marathon to support a friend who was running. When the blasts of terrorists' homemade bombs packed with nails and screws went off three feet away, Rebekah's legs took the brunt of the blast, protecting her son from certain death. Eighteen surgeries and sixty-five procedures later, her left leg was amputated. Despite the extraordinary trauma she underwent and the nightmares she continues to have, Rebekah sees it as just another part of her personal journey, a journey that has led her through abuse, mistakes, and pain and into the arms of Jesus. This stirring memoir tells the story of her recovery, including her triumphant return to Boston two years later to run part of the race, and explores the peace we experience when we learn to trust God with every part of our lives--the good, the bad, and even the terrifying. Readers will be moved by the joyous way Rebekah is determined to live her life, seeing every obstacle as part of how God forms us into the people we are meant to be. Readers will also find comfort in the message that it's not what they can or can't do that makes the difference, but rather what God, in his mercy, does through them despite it all. Life is hard, but with God all things are possible.

Domestic Violence is also willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/ or other abusive behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another. I was in an abusive relationship with my abuser for a long period of time. I suffer a lot pain and heartache in the hands of my abuser. He had me brainwashed. He can cheat on me with whomever he wanted too, but I dare not question him why. My abuser told me, “I better not tell anyone and if you do I’ll kill you” Now that stuck with me for a long time. I never told anyone of what he had did to me. I knew I had to fi ght back in order for me to get away from him. None of that worked out for me. He always said the right words to win me back. Yes, I loved him and I didn’t want to see him in jail. I kept everything a secret from my family. I pray that if you are in an abusive relationship to get out and seek help. Yes, he may tell you that he won’t do it again but is it worth losing your LIFE? He’s going to tell you all the good words you love to hear, but is your heart worth losing a BEAT? Don’t be afraid to seek help. It’s up to you to get the help. If you know someone you can trust, please tell them. Always keep a journal of what is going on between you and your abuser.

Not to disrespect the many great works of art in books by authors for centuries, but other than the Bible for those who believe, never in my lifetime have I ever seen or read a more powerful life-changing tool. This work of art specializes in using easy ways to remember what you’ve learned. This book, which is much, much more, brings to light the darkness that has blinded the eyes of the masses for centuries. It exposes the broken human, the money racket that AFFECTS US ALL, and YOU AS WELL! The goal is to bring about awareness and present real rehabilitation that can and will change the lives of anyone held captive, not knowing their true purpose in life, from the inmate to the depressed, from the gluttonous to those plagued by chaos, anger, or anything else that has been given power over the hearts and minds of men and women since the beginning of time! THIS BOOK IS A MUST-READ!

I Got My Life Back The author was called to preach the Gospel in 1974 and has served the Lord as a pastor, church planter, and chaplain. In 2016, his life was changed when he developed heart disease that resulted in a triple bypass surgery. After recovering from surgery, he was regaining his health back when he developed heart failure that took him into the valley of death. Prior to Christmas of 2017, the author had a divine encounter with Dr. Wencker, the medical director of Advanced Heart Failure Program at Baylor, Scott & White Hospital in Dallas, Texas, and was hospitalized to determine if he was a heart transplant candidate. The author was admitted into the heart transplant program at Baylor Hospital, Dallas, Texas, and in March of 2018 had a successful heart transplant and currently recovering. After awakening from transplant surgery his first words were "I Got My Life Back," which is the title of this book. The author writes of his experience and journey from heart disease to the heart transplant. The author writes this book from the biblical world view and not the world view that is so prevalent today. During his journey through the valley of death the author discovered that God is a God of infinite love and tender mercies, and that he hears and answers prayers and still performs miracles today. Because of His belief and faith in Christ the author is a living miracle and a testimony of the love, grace, and power of God. (A portion of the proceeds of the book sales will be donated to the Baylor Heart Transplant Center [Financial Services] to help heart transplant patients with their medical expenses.)
Domestic abuse at the hands of a spouse is a bitter reality that many men experience but are conditioned by society to hide. Abuse of men at the hands of women is something that does occur, but because of male pride and cultural conditioning, it often remains in the shadows. In To Hell and Back: My Life as an Abused Husband, author Kimber Broughton narrates the true story of Jonathan, a man who suffered a morass of abuse, psychological torment, and financial violation by his manipulative former wife, Stacy. This memoir describes Jonathan’s twelve years of abuse—the hell he experienced, how he handled the cruelty, and how he was finally able to leave the marriage and overcome the after effects. This memoir tells one man’s brutally honest story in order to share it with other men who are living through the nightmare of abuse. Detailing how to recognize the warning signs of abusive relationships and how to fight to get free of them, this book expresses that rebuilding pride and finding real love again after an abusive relationship is possible.
I Want My Life Back is not a pretty story- but it's beautifully told and absolutely compelling. The book's cover features a portrait of author Steve Hamilton. You'd guess his age to be somewhere in his late 60's. Guess again. He's 39, and he has seen several lifetimes of hurt and failure. Raised by an alcoholic father, Hamilton learned early how alcohol can dominate every dynamic in family life. Later, alcohol and drugs dominated every aspect of his own life. This book is a moving and compelling portrait of the addicted life. Readers will learn how addiction comes to possess the mind, soul and body of its human prey. Readers will begin to understand why an addict like Hamilton can't quit the very thing that is destroying him. He leads readers to grapple with a mix of emotions: loathing, pity, sympathy, compassion, and ultimately, admiration. He has been clean and sober for more than a dozen years now, and he completely embraces the Twelve Step philosophy. A powerful story powerfully told, I Want My Life Back is Leaving Las Vegas with a happy ending

But then, while they were vacationing in Germany, a train hit their van, shattering their lives—and Linda’s body. When Linda saw Dave for the first time after losing her right arm and both of her legs, she told him she would understand if he left. His response: “I didn’t marry your arms or your legs. If you can do it, I can do it.” In order to protect their loved ones, they decided to hide the truth about what really happened on those train tracks, and they kept their secret for thirty-five years.
