By Jo Henry

As I stood in the sunroom looking out the window, I thought I caught some movement in our backyard. I walked out onto the slate patio and peered into the dimly lit shrubbery when suddenly a figure dressed in black from head to toe emerged pointing a gun—at me!

I immediately jerked both hands above my head. “Don’t shoot! Please don’t shoot,” I croaked. I could hear my own heart pounding in my ears.

Our son, Mike had come through the front door just minutes before. I had a million questions only he could answer. How had it all come to this? Never in my wildest dreams—or nightmares—could I have imagined a SWAT team in my backyard. But I hadn’t imagined our son could become addicted to drugs either. Even though I was a trained counselor, I hadn’t seen disaster coming under our own roof. As we stumbled through the hell that surrounds addiction, my maternal instincts were driving me harder and harder to save Mike. I was consumed with fear as my well intentioned efforts were enabling his addiction and prolonging the inevitable. How could I find the strength to let go?

Who will help Mike now? Will he find a special angel from his past to lead him out of this darkness? Will he win the battle to survive? Take a journey so real you will feel the pain and the joy of every twist and turn in the road to recovery.

“If you, or someone you care for, is struggling with drugs or alcohol, Jo’s willingness to share her experience is both a blessing and a gift. I encourage you to take The Strength To Let Go home, find a quiet place to read uninterrupted, and open this gift.”

John V. G. Mayton, retired program administrator of the DART facility, Goldsboro, NC, certified alcohol and drug counselor (CADC), and certified substance abuse counselor (CSAC).

By Cornel M. Boyd

In this candid memoir, Carnell Boyd discusses his life and his love of football. Boyd also explores the challenges of growing up in the seventies with his family and friends, at a time when racism was rampant in many parts of the country, excluding Washington, DC, where he spent part of his time.

Football was a positive and significant facet of Boyd’s life from an early age. He went from playing football on playgrounds to playing very well in high school; his life centered on the sport, which was so important to his football-loving school and town.

Boyd touches upon the more painful aspects of his early life as well; he endured sexual abuse while young, the devastation this caused in his life took a great deal of time to overcome. In school, he wondered whether anyone else was experiencing the shame and humiliation that was part of his everyday life. Spending time in Washington, DC, brought a welcome relief from the abuse, as did playing football and hanging out with his friends.

Affecting and inspiring, A Trojan Called Viking provides an honest look at a life full of challenges and successes set against a backdrop of football and friendship.

Insight from My Life to Your Life looks with eyes wide open at the challenges and blessings in the life of Joseph Robinson. In his recollections and reflections upon key events in his life, he weaves together stories from his past with scriptural passages that offer hope and encouragement.

The chapter titles all refer, in some way, to trees. The Afterword explains that this thread of references to trees helps to make the connection between the lives of trees and those of people. Trees face changes with each season and challenges from the weather, while in their lives, people confront obstacles and—when they learn to trust God—receive the strength to endure the buffeting of life’s storms.

If you find your life sometimes turbulent and entertain doubts about how you will cope with the rough times you face, then Insight from My Life to Your Life

will help you to draw strength and insight from another’s experience and from the words of hope contained in the Scriptures. Equipped with these insights, you will find yourself drawing closer to God.

By Joe Gilliland
It was never in author Joe Gilliland’s plan to become a teacher, certainly not a college teacher and most certainly not an English teacher. But that’s what happened, and he’s never looked back. In A Teacher’s Tale, he explains, how by neither planning for nor seeking a life of learning and teaching, lacking a syllabus or lesson plan, he discovered that a life in academe lay in his path—a path he’s followed for more than fifty years.

A Teacher’s Tale begins in 1932 with Gilliland’s first experiences in schooling and concludes in the summer of 1955 just as he completes his apprenticeship and stands on the brink of becoming a qualified instructor in a small college in east Texas. This memoir presents a collection of stories about his experiences as a teacher and a college student.

A story of schooling deeply immersed in the arts and humanities, A Teacher’s Tale shares Gilliland’s love of the university and how it compelled him to seek a life devoted to teaching, primarily in the community college arena. Through this narrative, he brings together a philosophy of higher education based on the importance of arts and humanities in today’s high- tech world.

By Stu Stevens

Lalla Bond was a wild, untamed vagabond of a man who lived in the mining village of Annesley in Nottinghamshire. He was a stoutly, independent spirit whose lifestyle was total nonconformity. Lalla’s bizarre lifestyle surprisingly included literature and music. Willie Pearson, a child of eight or so was almost a miniature edition of Lalla, a younger scarecrow.

Based on segments of his own life from childhood until young manhood, our author Wilfrid A. Pearce (a.k.a. Stu Stevens) shares this story in his heart-warming memoir, Lalla. Pearce relates how Lalla became a father figure to young Willie, and despite the age difference, they developed a lasting friendship. Lalla proved to be the most influential educational benefactor in Willie’s rearing. An education instilled through word and mirrored deed; showing the importance of setting goals for himself as a man. After evaluating and using those goals in developing a tailored lifestyle, Willie would find a productive lifestyle suitable to feeding and fulfilling the needs of his own heart and spirit.

A true rendering of two lives seemingly cut from the same mold, Lalla narrates how, with Lalla’s guidance and influence, Willie found ways to make changes to the impositions life had forced on him. Lalla tells a story filled with both joy and the sadness as these two conflicting independent spirits meet and form a life-long father-son-like bond of love and friendship of the greatest respect.

Art Marsicano shares the inspiring story of his wife’s five-year battle with ovarian cancer in this tribute to God, marriage, and the power of love. In Jean’s final years, she smiled more than she cried and reached out to help others when she was the one in trouble. While cancer may have destroyed her body, it did not destroy her mind, soul or her essence. But as cancer took its toll, Art was forced to think about a life of living alone. One day, a verse of poetry fixed itself into his mind: there’s a place in my mind that so clearly I see and when I go there I think of thee there are mountains and rivers and the wind blows free yet I feel great sorrow, for there is only me When Jean died, Art found comfort by relying on God’s strength and thinking about the sunny days of the past, including four women that he wanted to reconnect with—discovering that two of them had died. But one of the women, Mary, would find him by sending a condolence card in the mail. Soon, Art would discover that his life could still have magic and love.
