NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • This on-point guide to growing up by Instagram sensation Mari Andrew features “achingly vulnerable and completely relatable watercolor illustrations about relationships, heartbreak and the struggles of urban life” (The Washington Post). In the journey toward adulthood, it is easy to find yourself treading the path of those who came before you; the path often appears straight and narrow, with a few bumps in the road and a little scenery to keep you inspired. But what if you don’t want to walk a worn path? What if you want to wander? What if there is no map to guide you through the detours life throws your way? From creating a home in a new city to understanding the link between a good hair dryer and good self-esteem to dealing with the depths of heartache and loss, these tales of the twentysomething document a road less traveled—a road that sometimes is just the way you’re meant to go. Praise for Am I There Yet? “Equal parts memoir and illustrated guidebook, it chronicles Andrew’s journey through adulthood as she navigates love and heartbreak, professional indecision and success, and personal struggles.”—Refinery29 “Using her artistic skills to illustrate thought-provoking essays, Andrew inspires readers to take the path less traveled in life.”—CNN “The illustrations . . . are often packed with truths about dating, self-care, careers, and all the secret thoughts you never say out loud.”—Elle “This uplifting book is filled with essays and illustrations that will fill you with so much hope as you move forward with any big life change.”—Bustle “Her illustrations will resonate with anyone who has ever had a crush, went on a date, or felt the sting of heartbreak.”—The Independent

Why am I holding this book in my hand? I don’t have time for this! God has a plan for you. He wants a relationship with you, and your soul is reaching out to Him. But finding time in your busy schedule to add another commitment is difficult. Do not hesitate; begin right now. Not next Monday or next week or the beginning of next year. Take action now. The message within this book is a guide to help you recognize God’s presence in your daily life. God speaks through His creation and the people we meet every day. Do you hear His voice? As with any new venture, the beginning steps are always the hardest. This study is simply ninety days! Even ninety days may seem too much when you barely have time to complete all of today’s tasks. Do not concern yourself with the ninetieth day; simply plan for today! “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “To give you a future and a hope.” —Jeremiah 29:11

Humanity has begun to emerge from the outworn idea that sees its existence as a conglomeration of separate personalities, into a more refined vision which views the planet as one mighty being with one heart and a united soul. We are finally coming to terms with the reality of our interdependence and also with the fact that our very survival depends on our ability to recognize our indivisibility. As we continue to mature to a place where we can both understand and live in this intrinsic oneness, a new being evolves. This emergent creature has the ability to eclipse what we as separate individuals can ever hope to achieve. As we live and move in unison, we find that our human consciousness blossoms into a full-fledged planetary awareness which opens up to us an entirely new field of infinite possibilities.

Life's a journey. Midlife's an adventure. But two weeks in a RV with the hot-flash sisters could drive anyone over the hill. Dede signed on for this cross-country RV trip selflessly, for Millie and Lydia's sakes. Besides, she needed to get her mind off a love gone wrong and a demanding gourmet chocolates business. And it's for a good cause--sprucing up the old summer camp in Colorado to save it from closing. It will be a fun, memorable last hurrah before she turns fifty. Right? But Dede's more of a luxury hotel kind of girl. She likes mints on plumped pillows and room service. Bunking with friends in a motor home the size of a phone booth is not her style. And with the mysterious biker gang and a stalking ex-boyfriend, the RV seems to be shrinking. Still, with friends, a boutiful supply of truffles, and a boy from her past who has aged very well, this trip might be the best vacation ever! A hilarious story that celebrates the life in midlife--even the occasional moose and mosquitoes--and the surprising grace of God.

Have you ever wondered if God has a plan for your life, or if the events of your life are just random and chaotic? Have you ever thought about the importance of the relationships you have with family and friends, and why certain people are even in your life? Have you thought about where you will spend eternity? It has been said that God has a plan for your life, and its a good plan. Using his own life experiences, and those of his parents, James W. Meyer takes you on a very personal and emotional journey of faith and trust. He explores events that happened and the ultimate effect of those events that have led him to his current place in life; the very place God always intended for him to be. Meyer reminds us that God also places family and friends in our lives for a very special reason, and we shouldnt take themor any of the other blessings from Godfor granted. Meyer was inspired to write this book following the death of his beloved mother, and he takes readers through the recesses of their thoughts and feelings and shows a path out as one whos walked it. Later in the book, Meyer takes the reader on a beautiful and simple journey through the Gospel and salvation. With his simple, but deep, faith genuinely expressed through his stories, Meyer brings readers to a soft landing in the arms of God and the assurance of His purpose in your life.

Who You Choose to Be

We all have choices in life in both the big and the little, and ultimately Who You CHOOSE to be matters, according to the author, Carrie Spratley. Carrie came to a place where she realized how much more impactful it was when she chose to steward everything that happened as a gift. Carrie wrote this book to inspire others, so that they, too, could see things in a way that would generate more hope, more confidence, and more impact for this side of eternity. 17 years ago, Carrie was diagnosed with an illness that took away her ability to be a great wife, mom and friend. She knew that she had a choice, deciding how to navigate this illness. Everything in her said fight and fight hard. She had people who were counting on her, and she knew she was worth being set free. Carrie put on her manufactured smile and implemented everything she could to become well. After 10 years, Carrie finally began having more wins than losses and God graciously blessed her with the gift of healing. She chose wellness. She chose to fight. She chose to be a victor and not a victim. Being grateful for what God had done, Carrie decided to pay it forward and help other people with similar struggles; a holistic health coach was born. Carrie has collected proven tools and strategies to guide people into their purpose-filled, most authentic life possible. After 25 years of marriage to her husband, Eric, being on the other side of illness, and having raised three amazing young men, Jared, Garrett, and Caleb, Carrie realized that she has had some really contrasting life experiences. By the world's standards, she has been living what some would call the "highlight reel." However, most of those experiences paled in comparison to what space filled Carrie's heart when she decided to move in the direction of serving others. She did some serious heart-searching on what it was she was specifically being called to do. Carrie became a health coach, because being sick robbed her from 10 years of being the best version of herself possible. She was given the gift of healing, and she wanted to make sure that people knew there was a better way. Carrie wanted to learn everything she could so she could help others with their health issues. Carrie understands that what helped her nutritionally may not be best for each individual she desires to help. Therefore, she learned a broad spectrum of different nutrition theories, and she values helping people find what works best for them on a bio-individual basis. If having a better understanding of whom God created you to be interests you, and if you have a nagging space in your heart you need to fill, Carrie invites you to take a journey with her through this book to help discover how to tap into the good life: the life God intended you to live! Who You CHOOSE to be matters, and you do get to CHOOSE!

This book is a story or series of stories about people. People in prison: some are employees, but most are inmates. This book is their story. In prison everyone has a story and most want to tell their story. The main problem is to get someone to listen. It is often a story of violence, a story of loneliness, and in many cases the horror of the unknown. This book is the result of countless hours of listening to story by story of hatred. Countless days (indeed years) about plans for that “day” when they get out. This book is the “Boiling Down” of the American version of ‘Crime And Punishment’. Hopefully someone will see a ray of hope in the human predicament called Crime.

Brain on Fire meets Carry On, Warrior in this inspirational memoir and “testament to the things that break us, heal us, and make us who we are” (Glennon Doyle, #1 New York Times bestselling author) that explores one woman’s journey from chronic pain and hopelessness to finding joy, redemption, and healing. At seventeen years old, Ruthie Lindsey is hit by an ambulance near her home in rural Louisiana. She’s given a five percent chance of survival and one percent chance of walking again. One month later after a spinal fusion surgery, Ruthie defies the odds, leaving the hospital on her own two feet. Just a few years later, newly married and living in Nashville, Ruthie begins to experience debilitating pain. Her case confounds doctors and after numerous rounds of testing, imaging, and treatment, they prescribe narcotic painkillers—lots of them. Ruthie has become bedridden, dependent on painkillers, and hopeless, when an X-ray reveals that the wire used to fuse her spine is piercing her brain stem. Without another staggeringly expensive experimental surgery, she could well become paralyzed, but in many ways, she already is. Ruthie goes into the hospital in chronic pain, dependent on prescription painkillers, and leaves the same way. She can still walk but has no idea where she’s going. As her life unravels, Ruthie returns home to Louisiana and sets out on a journey to learn joy again. She trades fentanyl for sunsets and morphine for wildflowers, weaning herself off of the drugs and beginning the process of healing—of coming home to her body. Raw and redemptive, There I Am is not just about the magic of optimism, but the work of it. Ruthie’s extraordinary memoir “like going on a walk with a best friend and listening to a life-changing speech at the same time: it’s equal parts familiar and profound, warm and insightful, comforting and challenging, relatable and unlike anything you’ve read before” (Mari Andrew, New York Times bestselling author).
