By Jerry Mitchell

I am amazed at the story of the author’s struggles and his overcoming. I was not able to put the story down.
—Arnold Gomez, Friend and Business Owner

In order to escape the disaster of the 1939 Dust Bowl in Oklahoma, author Jerry Mitchell’s parents had to make a difficult decision that would affect the family for the rest of their lives. His parents and four older sisters became a part of the massive migration of folks who left to look for a promise land of better things.

This memoir narrates his journey and includes a chronological recap of his experiences, from his schooling to his combat service in Vietnam, to his readjustment to civilian life, and the building of his own family.

By Kevin LaChapelle

When former police officer Kevin LaChapelle crossed paths with two inner-city, at-risk young men in California, three lives changed forever. In Overcoming Adversity, LaChapelle shares the inspirational story of how this transpired.

In this memoir, LaChapelle narrates how he met Jose Orozco and Agustin Peña and how he mentored and encouraged them to follow their big dreams and attend college. In turn, it describes how the two young men challenged LaChapelle to earn a college degree while living with ADHD.

Overcoming Adversity tells this story to shed light on LaChapelle’s work as executive director of the nonprofit PowerMentor project. Since 1990, he and others have been impacting people’s lives through mentoring. Bringing wisdom gained from a diverse background that has included experience as a police officer, an author, an instructor, a professor, and health-care administrator, LaChapelle develops future leaders by modeling leadership behavior, connecting with them, and involving them in purposeful real-life projects. His mentees have risen to leadership roles, many evolving from high school dropouts to lawyers or law enforcement officers.

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.

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.
