When We Have Failed-What Next? by K.P. Yohannan
“This hope-filled little book was like balm to my wounded soul.”
Genre: Christian living, Personal growth, counseling and recovery
We all have failed. Cringing under the awful sting of regret and disappointment, we ask the familiar question: “What next?” We feel that our life is over, that we will never recover, that we are doomed to remain forever in our rut of defeat.
We couldn’t, however, be further from the truth.
In When We Have Failed-What Next?, K.P. Yohannan graciously takes us on a journey toward a bright and hopeful future. He again and again depicts God’s unfailing love for us and His marvelous ability to bring out His very best for our lives, especially in the midst of our failure.
Look up, for the best is truly yet to come.

This morning I watched my sixteen-year-old son drive to school by himself and I am proud to say that I did not follow him! I thought about it, but I remember the freedom of getting in the car that first time and I loved it! I would not tarnish that first experience for him, but I was a little sick to my stomach.
Since the moment they are born, we are constantly told to let go. Let them learn to put themselves to sleep, do not hold them too much, do not put them in bed with you, and do not smother them with love and attention. Whatever! I believe you cannot love them enough, and hold them while you can before they will not let you anymore and snuggling in your parent’s bed is a gift that you never forget.
It made me think about my Father, God. If I feel like this and I only have three children, imagine how he feels! How hard it must be for him to let us go and hope we make the right choices. It must me even harder for him, because he knows the outcome of our choices before we make them. The gift he gave us is Choice, but it is also a curse. How much easier it would be for him, to make those choices for us and protect us.
The challenge for us is to Let Go and Trust Gods plan. It is so simple. I do not have to worry. With each new obstacle we face in our lives, our commitment to that trust is tested. That is when we have to Let Go, and trust Gods plan. Surround your heart with scripture, seek Gods hand, shut out the doubt, give it to God and you will not walk alone.

Samantha, aptly gifted, can’t recall the last 5 yrs. Can a Priest help?
Book Description (From Amazon)
Smart. Athletic. Beautiful and poised. The ideal qualities you’d find in your average high school’s popular girl is everything Samantha Ross possesses; however, the basketball champ is more an outcast than anything. Her eidetic memory– the ability to accurately recall images, sounds,and objects–leaves her somewhat powerful and gifted but in reality she cannot remember the last 5 years of her life. After being attacked by a behemoth she begins to discover her ability to heal rapidly, unlike other human beings. In a quest to get a better understanding of her past and special powers, she teams up with a traveling clergyman on a journey that will introduce her to other skilled youths like herself. Tumaini, Jana, and the Manning siblings join them as they encounter different battles with enemies that are sent to destroy them because of their gifts. Throughout the journey, they discover more about themselves, their abilities, and the secret of the Eternal Flame.
“One being the Sci-Fi element, as I am very into that genre of movies/books.” -Tswilli7
“I look forward to more from this author.” -Pamela S.
“I thought it was interesting that as the characters change, their powers evolve.” -J. Huang
T.D Ajayi became a storyteller sometime after he learnt to hold a crayon and definitely before he grasped a pen. He wrote snippets before harnessing the courage to complete the Fantasy saga that had been playing in his subconscious for the last fifteen years. An avid fan of all things Tolkien, insightful articles on the blogosphere and of course, the “Whedonverse”, he has lent his editing and writing chops to budding writers and just about anyone who was willing to benefit from it. He is finally one novel away from completing his ultimate opus – the Champions of the Eternal Flame trilogy. He is driven by a desire to explore the world beyond the simple and ordinary because he believes that only by dreaming of the possibilities, do fantasies become a reality that enriches all who can travel the many realms of the imagination.

THREE NAILS by Micheal Maxwell
How would you cope if in the blink of an eye your life was destroyed?
Genre: Christian Fiction, Novella, Drama
In the blink of an eye a family is shattered.
A father struggles to cope with the pressures and responsibilities of life, and job as a teacher, while dealing with the soul-searing tragedy of losing his only son.
In the depths of his despair, he cries out for the answers to forgiveness, healing and redemption only to face the return of his prodigal daughter. Can the answers he seeks really be in a simple message and Three Nails?
Micheal Maxwell steps away from his Cole Sage series to tell a story of Life, Death and an American Teacher.
We are taught that truth is stranger than fiction, it’s the thought that counts, and that the road to Hell is paved with good intentions. The truth is, life can’t be summed up in platitudes.
Grief has five steps we’re told. Suppose your feet are so anchored in sorrow you can’t take the first one? You still have to go to work. You still have people depending on you. You’re a man. You have to “John Wayne it” through life and don’t show the cracks that run as deep as your soul.
Three Nails takes us into the soul of a man who lost one of his most precious possession. In the blink of an eye his world didn’t cease to exist it, simply lost its meaning.
Millions of people fill pews every week, and don’t possess even the faith of a mustard seed. We use the word “nominal” to describe their faith. “God is with you” they are told. What if you don’t really believe it?
An average guy, a good teacher, a good dad, a good husband, faces life’s greatest questions. Where does he turn? At school he deals with frustrated colleagues and teens adrift in a world that seems upside down. At home they just don’t talk.
Then the person he least expects, seems to hold the answers, and it’s as simple as the message of three nails. Come with him through one school year, as he walks from utter darkness into the reality of a bright new morning.
Micheal Maxwell was taught the beauty and majesty of the English language by Bob Dylan, Robertson Davies, Charles Dickens and Leonard Cohen.
Mr. Maxwell has traveled the globe, dined with politicians, rock stars and beggars. He has rubbed shoulders with priests and murderers, surgeons and drug dealers, each one giving him a part of themselves that will live again in the pages of his books.
The Cole Sage series brings to life a new kind of hero. Short on vices, long on compassion and dedication to a strong sense of making things right. As a journalist he writes with conviction and purpose. As a friend he is not afraid to bend the law a bit to help and protect those he loves.
Micheal Maxwell writes from a life of love, music, film, and literature. He lives in California with his lovely wife of thirty seven years.
