By Joseph K. Chan

Joseph Chan was born with two rather restrictive birth defects. One of them is a generic eye disease known as Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP), which is progressive with age. The second one is Paroxysmal Kinesigenic Dyskinesia (PKD), an involuntary muscular spasm brought on by other sudden movements such as standing up from a sitting position; a condition that actually lessens with age. In The Way I See It, Mr. Chan talks candidly about the challenges of growing up with both of these birth defects and his discovery that even in the face of such challenges, with God’s love and perseverance, there is hope.

Growing up in a family where emotions were seldom expressed, he fought day in and day out to be normal because that was what his parents expected from him. His childhood was challenging, not only because he lagged behind his fellow students in learning skills, but also because he faced the stigma of being different. Ridiculed for being slow and clumsy, he developed low self-esteem. But the silver lining was that despite having such burdens stacked against him, these challenges taught him not only survival skills but also brought insights on important life issues like finding his true path in life.

The Way I See It is Joseph Chan’s inspiring spiritual journey to discover his life’s purpose and to share the hope and inspiration that he has found with those who might also benefit from it.

By Peter Marmureanu

When Peter Marmureanu started learning tennis in communist-held Romania, he was ten years old, playing barefoot on clay courts, swinging a wooden paddle that served as a racket. Eight years later, as a member of Romania’s Davis Cup team, Marmureanu was traveling side by side with Ilie Nastase and Ion Tiriac to the world’s capitals playing tournaments in Cairo, Monte Carlo, Paris, London, Moscow, and scores of other cities.

In Beyond My Dreams, Marmureanu recounts his life story and how he was forced to become a designated courier for the Securitate, traveling with packets of top-secret documents concealed in his racket cover for delivery to Romanian embassies. In a last-minute flight to freedom that sounds like an espionage thriller, Marmureanu narrates how he made his escape. But even in America, where Donald Rumsfeld and President Gerald Ford helped secure his citizenship, he lived for many years under FBI protection, carrying a handgun for his own safety, knowing the danger that loomed over Romania’s defectors and what might happen if he ever went back. And yet, for the sake of his family, Marmureanu risked a return—witnessing, firsthand, the initial moments of insurrection preceding the fall of an evil regime.

In this memoir—filled with intrigue, courage, and defiance—Marmureanu tells how he escaped one of the most repressive regimes on earth—the incredible but true adventure of one man’s flight to freedom.

By Ralston G. Bishop

The son of a single parent, a black Jamaican woman who was a poor domestic worker, author Ralston G. Bishop narrates the story of his life in Acceptance is the Beginning of Change.

From his birth in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, in 1974, to growing up poor in the parish of St Ann, to turning to crime, to spending time in prison, Bishop shares his journey and discusses the lessons he’s learned along the way. Now a farmer and a poet, he reflects on poverty and its far-reaching effect on people, and he tells of the importance of having complete faith and trust in God.

From rags to riches and from riches to rags, this memoir shares Bishop’s story as he learns to accept the regrets of his past and come to terms with a new present and future. Honest and disclosing, Acceptance is the Beginning of Change communicates that it’s not about what one lacks in life, it is about what one has. It’s not about the mistakes—it’s about the lessons gained.

By Rosa Isabel Colón

Alguien me pregunto reciente; “¿Por qué escribes cuentos y anécdotas de personas? Eso no vende libros.” me dijeron. Sugirieron escribir cosas de fantasía, horror, sexo, acción y guerra. Me aseguraron que hoy en día ningún lector quiere saber o le interesa leer de la bondad de las personas, la diversidad, sus sueños, su fuerza interna, valores, sus miedos, creatividad, inseguridades y los triunfos en contra de la adversidad. El motivo de sus acciones de violencia, ya sea por amor u odio son mas importante que la misma esencia de su ser.

El amor al prójimo ha sido remplazado por egoísmo y amor propio. Se busca riqueza y fama sin importar quién es destrozado en el proceso. Nacimos con el pecado frente a nuestros ojos y desde niños nos llenan la mente con juegos de violencia y guerra y la cortesía de un simple saludo se ha perdido.

Recuerdo una vez cuando entre a un elevador lleno de gente en Miami y dije los buenos días. Nadie me contesto, ese día explote y hablándome a mí misma en voz alta dije:

“¡Ave María! ¡Nadie contesta! Parece mentira que se hayan perdidos los modales y la cortesía de un simple saludo. Hubo un silencio total pero les puedo decir que cada persona al salir del elevador mirándome a la cara se despidió de mí con una sonrisa en los labios deseándome los buenos días. Hoy en día hay mucha gente falta de amor, estresados con el trabajo, las cuotas del mes y las finanzas. Aun así creo que no hay nada más hermoso que el ser humano, hecho a la imagen y perfección de Dios, donde cada mente es un mundo, y su creatividad no tiene fin. Donde una sonrisa es contagiosa y la cortesía y las buenas obras se devuelven cien por ciento. Mi familia, amigos y enamorados me preguntaban bromeando si estoy corriendo para el Senado ya que siempre sonrió y saludo a todos los que encuentro en mi paso. Personalmente pienso que cosecharas lo que siembras y creo en hacer el bien sin ver a quién.

Al final del libro espero lograr que cambien de opinión acerca de la excelencia del Ser Humano y su fuerza. Y recuerda que:

Dios no quieres que seas un Dios, sino que actúes divinamente.

By Vito A. Lepore

For author Vito A. Lepore, the years between 1950 and 1959 were the most important of his life. Decisions were made that affected the coming years, and his character became defined. In Vito’s Journey II, he picks up where part one of his memoir, Vito’s Journey, leaves off but with a different focus.

The first book introduced family members and told stories of a boy’s transition from Italy to America. Vito’s Journey II begins with his first step out into an adult world and journeys through the stages that follow. Told in a series of entertaining vignettes, the stories include: his foray into baseball, the night Nunzio was kidnapped, a taste of the Italian personality, life in the military, a night in jail, and his first full-time adult job. There is also a climactic court sequence.

In Vito’s Journey II, Lepore communicates the lessons he learned throughout his life. Whether it’s boyhood or adulthood, life is a never-ending series of crossroads, some by accident and some by design. Your life can change on any given day. It then follows that there is no such thing as a last chance, and that failure is part of the learning process.

By Pamela Hendricks Frautschi

Every family has one, the person whose very existence often perplexes and challenges. In this family, Claudia serves that role. A self-proclaimed spirit on the path to enlightenment and joy, her eager dismissal of her more mundane human element has caused no small amount of tension for spectators on the sidelines.

On the surface, her journey to Nirvana should be charming, but in reality, it’s been a profoundly disruptive roadblock to family harmony and her relationship with her siblings. Frustrated by her own family’s inability to embrace her needs, Claudia lashes out again and again. Claudia considers realism an evasion and reality a lie that serves no purpose other than to disrupt the pursuits of her spiritual dreams.

This is not the easiest mind-set to grow up with, but it’s what the narrator and her family experience. The narrator’s own quest for understanding, purpose, and compassion for her inscrutable older sister inspire her own internal explorations. In sharing these tales, she finds strength and comfort, humor and empathy, and, most importantly, solutions and closure.

An emotional account of the impact a decision can have on a family, Claudia is the story of an older sister’s ironically self-centered quest for Nirvana at all costs.

As a healer, author W. Jacqueline Johnson knew a cancer diagnosis could be a gift in one’s life, bringing valuable life lessons and even transformation. But nothing prepared her for her own diagnosis and the debilitating effects of chemotherapy and radiation. In The Guest House, she narrates the story of her diagnosis, treatments, and the surprising aftermath.

Johnson shares how, as a healthy woman who only saw the doctor for checkups, she is thrown into the medical system’s maze, having tests she never heard of and accumulating enough insurance receipts to fill a large notebook. Her progress is as slow and unpredictable as an upstate New York spring.

In Guest House, she tells how she lost all faith in the healing process. But one day something happened as she danced beside a flowing stream, and she felt the subtle energy returning to her body. Slowly, bit by bit, the healing process worked within her in ways she never thought possible as she experienced the liberation of vulnerability and doorways opened through pain. She learned lessons during the journey that led her to believe that cancer is, indeed, magical.

By Diane E. Greentree

Losing her mother at nine, moving to Alaska at thirteen, and leaving the country at fifteen, City of Flowers narrates the early life of author Diane E. Greentree. It tells the story of a teenage girl who was spiraling downward but ultimately reignited a sense of wonder and changed the course of her life.

In this memoir, Greentree shares how she received too much attention following her mom’s death and decided to never stand out again, a goal that brought devastating consequences later on. In a new town in southeast Alaska, feeling pressured toward drinking and sex, she sought an excuse to avoid doing something she would regret. For her, it was a letter from her mother. The desire to fit in proved too strong, however, and she crossed into an unhealthy abyss. Hearing about an exchange program, she jumped at the chance for escape, and with surprising determination, competed, and was selected to go.

Thus began an adventure to the southern Philippines. Immersed in a new culture, food, ways of thinking and with no hope of fitting in, she grew to understand that she didn’t need the approval of others to be herself.

City of Flowers shares one teenager’s story of coming of age and overcoming early challenges to learn to believe in herself.
