''As I Remember It'' is a fascinating account of daily activities of a family in the early 1900's. Esther grew up on the prairie of western Kansas. Having been born in 1914, she and her family suffered some of the growing pains of a new frontier. Hard work, perserverance, and humor saw them through. Her stories provide vivid insight into the pioneer activities of hog butchering, wheat threshing, and chicken and egg production. The humor shared with family and neighbors helped them endure the hard times. Esther tells of many incidents of helpful neighbors; a very necessary element for the survival of early settlers.

In writing my book I tried, to the best of my memory (and with the help of a lot of people), to relate and have a true story about the things that we did as children and adults about growing up and living in a small town in Alabama. Even though times were hard then, I feel very fortunate to have grown up during that time and in that place. I believe that my life has been guided and protected by a Higher Being and I thank God for looking after me and guiding my life. I also had some great teachers which I am thankful for knowing. Most of our teachers loved us and tried to help, when they could, to prepare for our future. All this gave me confidence to go into adult life and knew that I had my future in my hand and could make my life and that I alone am responsible for my actions. I believe that growing up in Roanoke gave me the knowledge and background to have a great life, for which I am thankful, and I hope for many more good years.

If you take a good look at the cover of the book, you will see a picture of a little boy and his sister, taken in the early 1920s in the state of Oklahoma. That picture represents the beginning of his journey. Darrell Starks story begins with the first seventeen years of his life, including the hardships that he endured, along with the deep sense of perseverance and overwhelming capacity for love that he learned along the way. The second part of his journey begins when he enlisted in the United States Army and requested duty in the Philippine Islands. He was in the Philippines when World War II began. He fought in three of the four major battles in Bataan before it was surrendered by General King. At that time, Darrell Stark was captured and became a Prisoner of War of the Japanese for three and a half years. The third part of his journey begins with his liberation in September of 1945. At that time he returned to the United States to his loving and loved family, and struggled to come to terms with a multitude of physical and psychological problems. The fourth part of his journey begins when he met his wife and moved to the state of Connecticut, where he was a recipient of the kindness and confidence of many wonderful people. That helped him to get a start in life despite his war experience. As the third picture on the cover will indicate, he moved on to acquire a position of responsibility and trust and to maintain a successful and rewarding life.

Alice Taylor remembers her childhood home – the farm with all its tools and animals, the home with its equipment for living, its daily challenges, constant hard work, and its comforts too. She describes the huge open fireplace where all the cooking was done, where the big black kettle hung permanently from the crane over the flames; here the family sat in the evenings, talking, knitting, going over the events of the day, saying the rosary. She experienced the sow being brought indoors to have her precious brood of bonhams. She recalls the faithful, beloved horses and their wonderfully varied outfits – one set of tackle for each job they did on the farm; the ritual of lighting the oil lamps – from the fancy one in the parlour to the tiny one under the Sacred Heart picture; the excitement of threshing day and the satisfaction of a good harvest – the stations, the neighbours, and later the local dancehall and cinema. All the jobs and tools of a way of life long gone live on in the hearts of those who were formed by it. Here Alice Taylor celebrates them all with love. 'magical ... reading the book, I felt a faint ache in my heart ... I find myself longing for those days ... it is essential reading.' Irish Independent

A sharp, funny, heartfelt memoir by a career-driven baby boomer who enters semi-retirement and explores the joys, challenges, and never-ending surprises of being a "young" granddad. One summer, shortly after taking a step back from an illustrious journalism career, Ian Haysom found himself in charge of his first grandchild, Mayana, who was three at the time. As a healthy, energetic member of the baby-boom generation, Haysom did not consider himself a typical granddad. He was too young, too active, too cool for a role more often associated with denture adhesive commercials and afternoon naps. But as he soon discovered, grandparenthood is more rewarding, entertaining, and exhausting than he ever could have imagined. Grandfathered chronicles Haysom's adventures with his grandkids Mayana, Emma, and Linden; explores the delightful and unexpected lessons they have taught him (and those he has attempted to teach them); and investigates the rapidly changing role of the grandparent in the twenty-first century. Through keen observations, hilarious anecdotes, and fascinating insights reminiscent of Bill Bryson (or "Bill Bryson with a touch of arthritis," as Haysom quips), this charming memoir will resonate with boomer grandparents everywhere.

By church doctrine I mean a teaching that helps us realize ourselves as fulfilled human beings in community with one another and with the god who is merciful love. No attempt is made to tie in with traditional religions nor with any particular church described or critiqued. Personal experience of god as father, as Messiah, as Jesus constitutes the backbone of what is subsequently fitted out with revealed knowledge and understanding. Mysteries are touched on, there are many explanations and clarifications, much is updated and restated in contemporary language; exercises and practices and their benefits are laid out in detail. The writer delivers himself of no abstractions but only shows what has worked and still does work for him along the resurrection-path to the 'kingdom of heaven' and eternal life, and thereafter the ongoing work in the interest of endless world creation and community building.

One Word Can Inspire Unending Gratitude There is power in words. The words we read and the words we speak. Power to build and power to destroy. One word—just one—is all it takes to turn a day around. Just one word is all it takes to set your mind on the never-ending power of God’s work in your life. In these delightful meditations, Susie Crosby draws out one unexpected word from a daily Scripture verse—words like “steep,” “roomy,” and “multiply.” As she explores each theme, she shows you a mighty God who is there for you, who calls you to live, and who you can invite into your day with just one word. Here you will find a simple and heartfelt recipe for keeping your eyes on Jesus throughout your week. Uncover a wealth of spiritual insight in just one word!
