Many of us feel comfortable raising boys because we were—and maybe still are—boys. We’re comfortable with rough-and-tumble, with fishing, shooting hoops, and geeking out with technology. But girls? How do you raise a girl? More importantly, how do you raise a Godly girl? Based on the latest research and his personal experience as the father of five daughters, author David B. Van Heemst details what a father must do in order to give his daughter strong foundations in Christ. With statistics, anecdotes, and discussion questions, Splashing in Puddles: How to Be a Father to Your Daughter brings clarity to fatherhood’s complexity. Van Heemst shows just how crucial a role the father has in the development of his daughter’s relationship with God, herself, and others. Any man can teach her how to ride a bike. But only one man can teach her how to walk with God.

Will hit you right in the heart” -- Bustle A PopSugar Best Book of Spring! “An exceptional psychological thriller.” -- Publishers Weekly STARRED review “Leaves you wanting more.” -- Liv Constantine, author of the national bestseller The Last Mrs. Parrish “A smart, wickedly plotted psychological thriller brimming with dark surprises” -- Heather Gudenkauf, New York Times bestselling author “Intense, creepy, and classic Rouda. A chilling story, told so well. Don’t miss it!” -- J. T. Ellison, New York Times bestselling author “B.A. Paris and Shari Lapena fans will fall head over heels for this suspenseful psychological thriller set in an upscale Southern California community.” -PopSugar “The Gone Girl-style domestic suspense novel follows Jane, a narcissistic perfectionist dealing with the death of her daughter.” — Washington Post “Rouda’s portrayal of Jane is fabulously compelling and darkly hilarious…The resolution is satisfying, but the ride is so diabolically twisted and entertaining that readers will be sorry when it come to a stop.” -Shelf Awareness “No one creates a narcissist like Rouda…. A wow read that will have you floored.” -Bookstr From the author of Best Day Ever, another gripping novel of psychological suspense set in an upscale Southern California community, for fans of B.A. Paris and Shari Lapena. The perfect home. The perfect family. The perfect lie. Jane Harris lives in a sparkling home in an oceanfront gated community in Orange County. It’s a place that seems too beautiful to be touched by sadness. But exactly one year ago, Jane’s oldest daughter, Mary, died in a tragic accident and Jane has been grief-stricken ever since. Lost in a haze of anti-depressants, she’s barely even left the house. Now that’s all about to change. It’s time for Jane to reclaim her life and her family. Jane’s husband, David, has planned a memorial service for Mary and three days later, their youngest daughter, Betsy, graduates high school. Yet as Jane reemerges into the world, it’s clear her family has changed without her. Her husband has been working long days—and nights—at the office. Her daughter seems distant, even secretive. And her beloved Mary was always such a good girl—dutiful and loving. But does someone know more about Mary, and about her last day, than they’ve revealed? The bonds between mothers and daughters, and husbands and wives should never be broken. But you never know how far someone will go to keep a family together…

"YOU'VE GOT Funny MAIL" is a compilation by Divad Yvel of five years of humorous emails about love, life and happiness. Many of us have received these emails, but often delete them as junk mail when we are busy, or, at best, after reading them, immediately delete the message from our computer's memory and our own memory, and lose that fleeting smile from our face. This book offers the opportunity to remember that "good one" that you wanted to share with a friend, savor the "dry one" that you had to read twice, and discover the "great one" that you will want to go back to again when you are feeling down. Some of these jokes may be perceived to pick on someone, but be assured that there is no offense intended. Divad just wants to make you laugh. Enjoy!

At just ten years old, playing in the lush trees, starting mischief with the boys; Kim loved her family and friends, the sounds of the market, the tastes of the foods, she enjoyed life, and wished it would never change. What she didn’t know yet was all that she loved was about to be torn from her prying fists. "Wake up, wake up…" her sister yelled, shaking her. Looking out the window behind their bed, Vi?t C?ng marched just a hundred meters from her home just outside Saigon. Pop pop pop pop gunshots from the AK-47’s jolted their muscles as a full scale attack on the American Army base began. Their small home caught in the crossfire, they spent the night of T?t, the 1968 New Year, in the safety of a small dark makeshift cellar. The war finally came to an emotionally sad ending, the streets in crisis, people fleeing by the thousands. The North Vietnamese Army declared victory renaming Saigon to Ho Chi Minh City. April 30th, 1975…this was a day that will change Kim’s life forever. Forced into oppressive Communist life was hard and depressing. Kim’s dreams of an education in America were crushed, her husband taken to prison, her brother in law taken to a reeducation camp, their family business ransacked and closed by the police; food became scarce, money even worse. Stories of boat people attempting escape caught her attention. Such sad stories though, a coworker captured by pirates, beaten, and then tossed to the sea to die. A mother losing her children, drowning in the seas. The list goes on but her desire for freedom outweighed the risks. In less than a year she found herself being stuffed into a hidden compartment at the bottom of a small wooden fishing boat with many other desperate souls seeking freedom. The darkness, rancid smells, and thick air choked her lungs. Cramped, her body ached and below her waist was all but numb. Without warning the diesel engine kicked up louder and the boat started moving faster. Pah pah pah pah pah she heard in rapid succession. Bullets pinged off the side of the vessel, splintering the wood through to the cabin. Still, the boat did not slow. Again Pah pah pah pah pah. The sounds of bullets hitting the side of the boat echoed in her ears. Everyone jumped. The engines kicked off and the boat came to a dead stop. Oh my god they already caught us. Falling over into the dirty sea-ridden floor of the boat, fish juice mixed with unthinkable bodily fluids washed back and forth around her face. Reaching her hand to her side, feeling a sharp searing pain. It was wet, blood was everywhere. The shimmering brilliant lights of the spot lights and yelling faded into the background as her head became light, dizzy, as everything went black… Book Review 1: "I knew little about Vietnam other than living through the war myself. I watched the protests here at home and lost friends over there. One of my favorite movies remains “The Killing Fields” about the journalist Sydney Schanberg and his friend Dith Pran. While that movie is primarily about Cambodia, I believe much applies to Vietnam as well. This book opened my eyes to a whole new facet of the Vietnam war; the people; the villagers who had to live through it, not only when the US pulled out, but for years after as well. It is a well written and thoughtful accounting of the day to day life of one young woman. Her terror and hardships were heart wrenching. If you’d like a down to earth account of the war, this is the book for you. No who is right or wrong, just what was the reality for one woman. I would like to read more from Russ Katz. Thank you to Netgalley and Dog Ear Publishing for allowing me the opportunity to read this book." -- Tripower53, NetGalley Book review 2: "This manuscript tells an extraordinary story, a story that deserves to be told to as many people as want to know about it. And there are many facets of the present draft of The Principal’s Daughter that are very, very well done indeed. It is, up to a point, very effectively put together. The material is rich, that characters are vivid, and the narrative itself is riveting and moving. Whatever you do with this, keep Kim’s spirit alive. She is a Personage. You are lucky to know her. I am lucky to know something about her now. That character, that family, that place in the mango trees: magic. You got yourself a million acres of magic here, pal. Don’t screw it up! (You won’t, because you know it’s magic.) I don’t think I’ve ever read a piece of prose that so galvanized my attention--" -- Kevin Anderson & Associates Book Review 3: "This was a fantastic story about an inspirational woman, Kim who lives during the Vietnam war and experiences not only their quest for freedom, but also her own. Kim is a resilient soul whose dreams are destroyed and it is up to her bravery and hope to remake them. This is not a typical story and it is one that will both teach you something about Vietnam and touch your heart. Rich in description and food references, the world comes alive and while we will never be able to know these experiences, we begin to get a glimmer of these moments: both good and bad. Notes: I loved the book! I will be posting a review on my blog, utopia-state-of-mind.com, on December 7th and will update this review when it goes live. Additionally I will be posting my review on Netgalley within the next two days from now." -- Lili Hadsell, NetGalley

The Palio: Siena's famously dangerous and hard-fought horse race. A year of planning, ten riders, three circuits of the piazza - and all over in a single moment. But this year, for two of the women watching, far more than the coveted prize is at stake. For Pia of the Tolomei, the most beautiful woman in Siena, the Palio is her last hope of escaping a violent marriage. For Violante de Medici, it marks the start of what her enemies intend to be her last month as governess of the city. Isolated in her palace, surrounded by conspirators, she must find the courage to uncover a plot that threatens her very existence. The trumpets sound. And into the piazza rides an unknown horseman, clad in the colours of the Tower contrada. What he does during the race will not only change the lives of Pia and Violante, but alter the course of the Medici dynasty itself. Alive with all the colour and rich historical detail that marks Marina Fiorato's work, Daughter of Siena is a dramatic and compelling story of treachery, courage and the power of love.

This book is a memoir of my traditional Chinese parents whose resilience and courage was representative of our pioneering forefathers. With their passing, I see the vanishing of the Old China which philosophical heritage, idealism and romance has shaped the Chinese mind for centuries. Our upbringing highlighted the importance of Respect and Responsibility within the context of a code of conduct. The book is a literary pastiche - a montage of my world in Australia juxtaposed against the exquisite brocade of the other world. Today's China is a vibrant part of our cyber-world, the impact of which could be encompassing on one's individuality. What kind of persons will our young generation and the future generations become.

This Searching Of My Children Book will move your feelings to an amazing world of patience, challenge, and certainly a world of love. Searching Of My Children Book tells a story about men in search of his children. He was willing to give up everything to be the father he always wanted to be. But it's never that simple. The mother of the twins hid them away, 'protecting' them. Her lies create chaos. His cultural beliefs clash in his transition to the United States, but he persevered. Now he wants his family, too. Nothing could stop him. He spent all he had and devoted his entire life to achieving his goal of being their father. The one question left was, "Was it worth it?" Was his sacrifice worth the harm it caused him and his family? Was the determination rewarded with the family he always wanted? Would his efforts ever be received as a demonstration of love or make him appear as to be someone to fear? Could his relationship with his daughters? Will they love him in return? He would give anything to make sure they had all that they needed. He gave them all that they needed. He gave them all that they requested, despite the way he was treated.

Mordecai's challenge to Esther, "Were you not born for such a time as this?" is repeated for all women throughout the ages, says Diana Hagee. Every woman has a divine destiny. But women cannot fulfill that goal unless they understand His biblical guidelines. In this interactive workbook, Diana leads women through a self-examination of their lives and their goals from God's perspective, not the secular society's. They look at Scripture that shows how valuable they are to God and how they can have an intimate relationship with Him. And then they evaluate the standards that make them a daughter of the King: God's blueprint for their unique personality, for their sexuality, and for their relationships in the home and in the workplace. Ideal for individual use as well as for a woman's Bible study or for a larger discipleship/mentoring group, the book includes instructor's notes and an appendix of suggestions on how to conduct this twelve-week course.
