By Brandon Boswell

Working as a gas station attendant wasn’t author Brandon Boswell’s idea of a dream job, but that’s where he ended up, and he has something to say about it.

Running on Empty: The Life and Times of a Gas Station Attendant offers a collection of short stories about Boswell’s experiences working as a gas station attendant in his hometown, along with other anecdotes and insights of his life on and off the job. From a firsthand perspective, he tells about the good, bad, the interesting, and the downright odd things that sometimes occur as he performs his job duties.

Boswell, though legally blind, tries to find the humor in the situations he faces. In Running on Empty, he shares his life’s narratives to help others, especially those like him who live with disabilities, to find the humor and the faith in God needed to make the most out of life.

By Rev. Mary E. Mitchell

This is not an ordinary book . . . it exists through grace. By the time I found the metaphysical teaching called Science of Mind in 1989, the local church had grown from a few people in a living room to about 175. Still meeting in an array of hotel ballrooms and clubs, the principles for successful living shared every Sunday were already deeply held beliefs in my life, so it immediately felt like home. One weekend we invited the elders of the church over to discuss church history and what a rich history it was. An afternoon with Bill and Win Siefert, Bruce and Dorothy Johnson, Marilyn and Joe Vondracek, Bob and Dorothy Huntoon, Harry and Frances Bleile, and Rev. James and Rev. Andrea Golden was magical.

How many ministers have taken their congregation skydiving? White water rafting? On wilderness treks? How many change lives through deep introspection at family retreats in rustic cabins deep in the woods? How many invite congregants and friends to pound thousands of nails for an old fashioned barn raising to build a sanctuary? Whether the name was the Science of Mind Center, Church of Religious Science, Spiritual Enrichment Center, or Center for Spiritual Living, over the years we all learned to jump into life in one new way or another. The list of events by year presented in the appendix creates a picture of a community that loves to laugh and play together, always mindful of doing their spiritual practices. What a life! What a community! What a history!

By Catherine Marinelli-Gagliano
For author Catherine Marinelli-Gagliano, a parent of two children with special needs, life often appears topsy-turvy to those on the outside, but there is a definite itinerary. She admits she sometimes takes one step forward and three steps back, but eventually she advances. In A Mother’s Intuition, she shares her story of how she and her husband raised one son diagnosed with autism and another with Aspergers.

Relying upon her faith, her strength, her nuclear family, and chance encounters with kind strangers along the way, Catherine Marinelli-Gagliano tells how she battled a gamut of professionals, including superintendents, principals, teachers, neurologists, psychiatrists, and others who should have known better in order to secure a better future for her two boys. Often at odds with friends and family as well as school bus matrons and state agencies, she never faltered in her efforts to create a better world for her sons. She’s a mother-warrior equipped with a strong faith and an infallible intuition when it comes to the challenges facing her children.

From beginning to end, she describes her decree that there would be no “can’t” in her vocabulary. Trusting in her intuition, she found ways to help her sons make true progress. A Mother’s Intuition tells a personal story of one family’s experiences, but the life lessons apply to other parents of children with and without autism.

By Heather Scavetta
There’s an old folk tale about a young mother who lost her child and is inconsolable. The wise man of the village tells her to go from house to house to find what everyone shares—and what everyone shares—is loss. It’s the universal experience.
Although we all will grieve the loss of our loved ones, we can learn how to reconnect with them. Through prayer and meditation, we can shift our awareness from the physical to the non-physical. We can witness firsthand that death is but an illusion. We can heal. We can find joy again. Author Heather Scavetta discovered that reality when she began developing her clairvoyant abilities after the death of her daughter, Elizabeth, in 2004.
In The Power of Love, Scavetta shares her personal journey of receiving visions and afterlife communication from her daughter, loved ones, and spirit guides who encourage her to persevere through her grief. Having no previous ability, Scavetta shows that opening up spiritual gifts is accessible to everyone. Through personal examples, she shares how to open your own psychic and mediumistic abilities, and she discusses the many ways spirit can reach us.
A story of celebration about the amazing and wonderful experiences that occurred since Elizabeth’s transition, The Power of Love narrates one family’s story of how they opened their spiritual gifts to see, hear, and feel—and to know beyond any doubt—their daughter never left their side.

By Jim Downey
Jim Downey, who served three tours in Vietnam with the US Air Force, compares his travels with those of his father before and during World War II in this inspiring memoir that celebrates family, valor, and military life. His quest started after he received a questionnaire form an Air Force Fighter Squadron, which led him to his father’s stack of military orders, other papers, and pictures. Major James A. Downey Jr. had never disclosed the details about his service during World War II, and the research turned into an eye-opening experience for his son. Major Downey was in the Philippines and China in the 1930s, areas that his son would get to know well decades later on his trips to Vietnam. The elder Downey also spent time in Germany and was one of the few sent back to the Philippines for the planed X-Day invasion of Japan. Join a son as he walks in the footsteps of his father, sometimes figuratively and sometimes literally—discovering insights about himself and his family in Horses and Helicopters.

Suicide is at the top of the list for death among teenagers. Wedding vows are no longer sacred, while divorce is rampant. Thousands become addicted to prescription drugs while counselors search for new ways to help their patients cope with the cares of life. You may be one of these and maybe you feel you cannot go on; your heart breaks from the loss of a child; all you have left are memories and a question, “Why?”

Maybe you feel ashamed and degraded because of rape or sexual abuse; you carry the burden of shame and confusion until it weighs you down. Maybe you have been through a divorce; you feel like a failure or a reject; you turned to drugs or alcohol or some other substance, just to get through the disappointments life has dealt you. Yet you find that nothing works and you want to swallow the whole bottle of pills the doctor gave you, so you won’t have to wake up to another sad day.

Maybe you are in a jail or prison, locked away from society for making bad choices. You have broken the rules and it is payday, but the cost is too high and you do not know how you will ever pay it. You may be a battered wife, with little children at your feet and you cannot find a way out. You may be a drug addict, with a need you cannot fill or an alcoholic with a thirst you cannot quench. You were told you will always be an addict and now you feel helpless.

I too have been in most of these places in my life. I share my story in hopes that I may help someone else find peace in the midst of his or her own personal storm.

GABY tells the extraordinary story of a proud woman building a life across three continents. The adored only daughter of secular Jewish industrialists, she was born in 1936 Berlin at the height of the Nazi rise to power. Her family fled to relative poverty in British occupied Palestine. Gaby became a patriot for the nascent state of Israel, serving in the military during the 1956 Sinai campaign. But a fierce academic ambition drove her to California to pursue an education.

In America, Gaby found relative happiness as a mathematician, wife, and mother of two. She was a pioneer and talented innovator in the use of computers, and often brought that expertise into play while accompanying her widely traveled archaeologist husband. But like so many women of her time, she struggled to balance professional goals with family responsibilities. Though her talents were recognized in everything she undertook, Gaby herself never felt she fully realized her early promise and expectations.

This vivid life history traces a path through political disruption, personal ambition, painful loss, and family loyalty. It offers glimpses of the rich traditions of pre-War Germany and the Israeli pioneer spirit within a modern American life.

By Steven Lewis

The author, Steven Lewis, in superb life-long health, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, a disease with a survival rate of only 5%. In spite of this, Steven and his wife struggled to achieve and deliberately maintain an extremely positive attitude. This choice started a “ripple effect” that created an exceptionally caring and upbeat community of family, relatives and friends and enabled this community to return even more positive energy to Steven. The story became even more intense when Steven endured a second bout of pancreatic cancer that metastasized to his liver. Surviving a second bout of pancreatic cancer is so rare that no statistics are kept. Today, Steven is cancer free, in excellent health and works out strenuously.

Virtually all of us, at some point, will experience extreme life difficulties involving circumstances such as severe illness, injuries, accidents, divorce or natural disasters. A positive attitude can help us think clearly, be solution oriented and ultimately prevail. Whether Steven physically survived or not, an attitude of complaint and negativity would have shattered his emotional life and that of his family. Steven’s choice was to stay positive and upbeat in spite of his situation. What would you have done?

Author Belva Boroditsky Thomas loves adventure. She looks for adventure. She creates adventure. She yearns for adventure. Thomas may not climb the Himalayas or search for sunken treasure, but she’s always ready to take on the forces of nature working through her life and her relationships.

In The Longest Adventure, Thomas shares her life adventure, beginning with her birth in 1929.

Growing up in a warm, self-reliant, Yiddish-speaking community in Winnipeg, Canada. She became aware early on of the world her parents came from and the wider world around her she could move into if she tried. Leaving both a religious and richly cultural community for an operatic career with the Arts Council Opera Group and the Glyndebourne Opera Festival in Great Britain, she discovered the richness to be found in the music of the great composers and became a promoter of this art form for the rest of her working years.

Marriage to a Welsh teacher of English and a seeker of his own spiritual path in Subud and motherhood with five gifted children was followed by entrepreneurial social work in the creation and development of a community cultural organization, the Preville Fine Arts Centre. She served as chairwoman of the regional school commission that introduced the French immersion program to Canada.

This memoir narrates the adventurous story of one woman who took a leap from one world to another, a plunge from one career to another, and a step from religion to humanism.

Vietnam and Back, is the first hand account of a helicopter gunship pilot who served in Vietnam during 1969. It is an accurate and realistic portrayal of one average guy engaged in helicopter warfare in Vietnam.

Flying helicopters can be challenging, and flying in a combat zone can be quite harrowing. The book is full of stories of being shot at, hit by enemy gunfire, and of mechanical operational failures, that created many near miss events.

His experiences in Vietnam left the author with some impressions and feelings regarding Vietnam and war in general, and will leave the reader with some issues to think about.
