Life's Waves: The Ebb and Flow of Womanhood (A Collective Journal)
($13.00) ISBN: 978-1-4349-0081-4, paperback
Life's Waves: The Ebb and Flow of Womanhood (A Collective Journal) is a striking and intimate compilation of personal reflections. Annemarie P. Dandy's work reads like a meditative journal, yet her outward focus allows the reader to be drawn into her thoughts and find solace and insight in her experiences.
Ms. Dandy balances spiritual encouragement with direct and candid advice for women seeking to truly find their own happiness. She writes: Be your own guide--hold your own walking stick, tightly, sometimes with both hands, and put one foot in front of the other. (Good shoes are a must, both to keep your back in alignment and to kick the s--t out of those who tell you that you shouldn't feel this way!)
Other selections included here reveal the author's steadfast faith and offer a glimpse of the profound comfort and strength found in her relationship with God.
The imagery, reflections, and prayers of Life's Waves: The Ebb and Flow of Womanhood (A Collective Journal) speak to women's struggles and celebrations in a fresh and engaging voice.

Walking to Freedom
($9.00) ISBN: 978-1-4349-0084-5, paperback
While looking at Norman Rockwell's painting The Problem We All Live With, author Desmond Lowery kept hearing the word "sacrifice." After viewing The Last Supper and hearing the same word, everything became clear to him. This short but explicit work explains what he discovered when he explored the meaning of the word "sacrifice."
In chapter one, he examines how sacrifice leads to knowledge and what role we and our children play in sacrificing for God. Chapter two continues in the same vein, explaining God, Satan, the Bible and their roles in America, and the unlikely heroes God has chosen to help conquer fear and evil.
Switching from biblical times to modern-day America, the author discusses the meaning of Independence Day in chapter three and how in America a person can experience freedom and independence.
The Promised Land is examined in depth in chapter four as are God's chosen people. Lowery explains how God's chosen people are not the Jews as is commonly assumed, but African Americans. God sent Martin Luther King Jr. to be His modern-day deliverer, just as Moses was the biblical deliverer.
In his conclusion, Lowery brings it all together to help the reader understand his role in this promised land of America.
