Download or read book Not Free America written by Mike Donovan and published by Forefront Books. This book was released on 2020-10-27 with total page 114 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Not Free America is a call to all Americans to take back our constitutional freedoms and break free of “our abusive relationship with our government.” Mike Donovan’s groundbreaking work on behalf of personal liberties has made him an object of fascination on both the Right and the Left. In this groundbreaking book, Mike Donovan, the CEO of Nexus Services, calls out the elites who wield power in our country—not only the elites at the federal level, but the elites who exert control over us in our states and counties, our cities and towns. Not Free America is a passionate call to all freedom-loving Americans to take back our constitutional freedoms and break free of what he calls “our abusive relationship with our government.” Donovan details how the “wholesale shredding of the Bill of Rights” started long before the concurrent crises of Covid-19 and the protests and violence that followed the murder of George Floyd. Not Free America shows us how those events were used by forces in our local, state, and federal governments that had systematically been abridging our rights for decades. These rights, Mike reminds us, are God-given rights guaranteed to us by the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Fourteenth Amendment. As the pastor of the First Christian Church Universalist in Harrisonburg, Virginia, Mike Donovan is far from your quiet country clergyman. A fierce warrior with the spirit of God and the tough skin of a lawyer, he has dedicated his life to protecting liberty and preserving individual rights, serving the underserved, and ministering to those who are overlooked in our broken society. Indeed, there are aspects to his past and present that make him an easy target for judgment from all directions. But Mike Donovan hides from nothing: He openly embraces the faults of his past and dedicates his present to creating a future that helps others move past their own unfortunate pasts. Born to a poor family in Page County, Virginia, he found himself at a young age convicted of writing bad checks, resulting in multiple felonies for which he served seven months in the county jail. But the time he served didn’t break him; it helped make him the man he is today: a man of the law and a man of God who believes with all his heart and soul in the possibility of redemption and the power of moving beyond past mistakes. He also came out of that experience knowing he needed to make a difference for others who found themselves in the same place he’d just been. Not content to talk the talk, Mike Donovan walks the walk in the footsteps of the Jesus who said “I was in prison and you came to visit me . . . Whatever you do for the least of these, you do for me.” Not Free America shows us how to do all that for America and for our children. The book ends with “The Liberty Pledge”: an agreement readers will make stating that they will vote only for lawmakers who agree to uphold the rights and freedoms guaranteed by the Bill of Rights and the Fourteenth Amendment.
Download or read book Where Do I Go from Here written by Rita Blessings and published by AuthorHouse. This book was released on 2013-03 with total page 153 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Don't fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! Those who hear and don't act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like. (James 1:22-24 The Message) This book was written on author's life experiences. It focused on family hurts, pain, lies, deceit, and forgiveness. It brings the reader into the reality of family secrets: "What's done in this house stays in this house." This book shares a light at the end of the tunnel. It brings to the people-whether woman, man, boy, or girl--the hope that there's a way out and that past circumstances don't have to become our future. We can hold on to the thought that we can make it through any situation with the help of the Lord. Where Do I Go from Here? is also a book of mixed emotions. --Yolanda Griffin In this book are life-changing testimonies and many helpful insights on how to live past your hurts and pains. This is a book that gives insight on how to be free through forgiving yourself and others that have causes you pain. It also gives insight on how to mature in Jesus Christ. --Renee Smith Where Do I Go From Here? is an open invitation to anyone who wants to understand that God covers and keeps us throughout it all, from birth to entrance into His kingdom. His love never dies! God gives us liberty even when we don't know how to grab it ourselves. Once we are set free, we are free indeed. I am a living witness that there is life after a divorce and that we are truly free to go after whatever God has for us. Hallelujah! --Angela Lambert I am not a book reader, but once I picked up this book, it was hard to put it down. Thank you, Teresa, for allowing God to use you to help others to open their eyes and see their true potential. May God continue blessing you and your family. --Patrick A. Smith

Download or read book Fire in the Morning written by Elizabeth Spencer and published by Univ. Press of Mississippi. This book was released on 2012-09-26 with total page 275 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Admirers of Elizabeth Spencer’s writing will welcome back into print her first novel, and her new readers will discover the sources of her notable talent in this book. Published in 1948 to extraordinary attention from such eminent writers as Robert Penn Warren, Eudora Welty, and Katherine Anne Porter, this father-and-son story revolves around an old southern theme of family grievances and vendettas. Fire in the Morning recounts the conflict between two families extending over two generations up to the 1930s.The arrival of an innocent stranger flares old arguments and ignites new passions. In Spencer’s compelling tale of the half-forgotten violence, the well-deep understanding of father and son, Kinloch Armstrong, the young hero, confronts mysteries of the past. His wife, a newcomer to the area and its legacies, makes friends with a family of traditional rivals. After she is involved in a nighttime wreck and the death of a local man, the past gradually comes to light, and the two families once again become caught up in revelations, hatreds, and conflicts. Spencer faithfully renders the setting—a small, dusty Mississippi town—and the surrounding countryside as it was in the early twentieth century.

Book excerpt: Together but unbound, they must learn what it means to love completely, in the latest novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Wild Wolf. To cement the leadership of his North Carolina Shiftertown, Bowman O’Donnell agreed to a “mating of convenience.” Two powerful wolf shifters, he and Kenzie keep the pack in order and are adored by all. Bowman would do anything to protect Kenzie, for in each other’s arms they’ve found far more than friendship. But as strong as their attachment is, they still haven’t formed the elusive mate bond—the almost magical joining of true mates. Now with a monster ravaging the countryside and threatening the Shiftertown community, some in the pack fear that a pair without a true mate bond isn’t strong enough to lead. Bowman and Kenzie will have to rely on their instinctive trust in one another to save their Shifters—and the ensuing battle will either destroy them or give them the chance to seize the love they’ve always craved.
Download or read book I Never Met a Story I Didn t Like written by Todd Snider and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2014-04-22 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For years, Todd Snider has been one of the most beloved country-folk singers in the United States, compared to Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, John Prine, and dozens of others. He's become not only a new-century Dylan but a modern-day Will Rogers, an everyman whose intelligence, self-deprecation, experience, and sense of humor make him a uniquely American character. In live performance, Snider's monologues are cheered as much as his songs. But never before has he told the whole story. Running the gamut from personal memoir to shaggy-dog comedy to rueful memories of his troubles and triumphs with drugs and alcohol to sharp-eyed observations from years on the road, I Never Met a Story I Didn't Like is for fans of Snider's music, but also for fans of America itself: the broad, wild country that has produced figures of folk wisdom like Will Rogers, Mark Twain, Ambrose Bierce, Tonya Harding, Garrison Keillor, and more. There are storytellers and there are performers and there are stand-up comedians. And then there's Todd Snider, who is all three in one, and something else entirely.
