Is it the liquor or are they truly happy? You are surrounded by people you know and don’t know, eating and drinking wine, all who appear to be happy with their lives. You listen to them share their career experiences and laugh at each other’s office stories. You want more but you don’t want to seem ungrateful so you stay silent. You know there’s so much more for you to accomplish. You are growing tired of pretending to be totally fulfilled. You know exactly what you want to do in life because you’ve carried the vision for years.<br />You start to feel alone: Just you and your vision that seems to be expanding. You want someone to tell you that you owe it to yourself to bring those visions to life.<br />You don’t need someone to present to you a shiny tale of luck that brought them success. You know the path will get fuzzy, but you just need assurance that you are not alone in wanting to follow your passions. On these pages, Tamara presents her story, a very much current story, as she works to pursue hers. She is your passion pursuing long distance buddy.<br />In her book, Tamara does not attempt to tell you what you should do with your life. You don’t need someone to give you a 25-step plan to bring your visions to life. Whatever choice you make after reading this book, you’ll be confident in knowing that you have what you need, right now, to create your own plan to bring those visions to life.

I am not sure if there is anything more challenging than having 50 kindergartners for an hour in a gym class! They were running in every possible direction. Challenging yet fun! During a time of layoff I was a substitute teacher in the public schools. I taught in Elementary schools, Middle Schools and High Schools. I had 126 assignments in 39 different schools. My assignments included Latchkey, Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade, 6th grade, 7th grade, 8th grade, 9th grade, Special Education, Resource Room, Media Center, Math, English, Social Studies, Science, Health, Art, Speech, Drama, Physical Education, Lunch Monitor, Hall Monitor, Inside Security and even a Middle School Guidance Counselor. What I thought was going to be a temporary and monotonous job for a few months until I found something better turned into an adventure I had not expected. With each new assignment came different experiences and challenges. I started to write down humorous accounts each day and began sharing them with friends and family. I was encouraged to put my experience down in a diary. The life lessons I learned are disclosed in this book. Through this journey I have learned many things that cannot be taught in any university in our country. I believe as I taught my students they were also teaching me. As I share the education I received from my time as a substitute teacher, may you be encouraged, have an occasional chuckle and use these life lessons to improve your outlook and attitude toward children and the people you encounter throughout the world you live in.

Laura Pexton was always in a hurry, even before she was born. Then a breast cancer diagnosis derailed her life plans, or so she thought. This book is the retelling of the author’s tumultuous journey through 15 years of cancer diagnoses and her humanitarian travels throughout the world. Her message is that one person can live beyond limits.<br /><br />Laura was diagnosed with breast cancer at age twenty-eight soon after giving birth to her daughter. Three years later the cancer was back, literally in her back and spreading throughout her bones. This was a Stage IV “terminal” diagnosis and she was given no hope of a cure. This book chronicles the agony of the disease and the ecstasy of victory as 15 years later, Laura is still here. She hasn’t just been around the block; she has been around the world. The journey evolved from one of pain and suffering to one of awe and appreciation. She is an ordinary person who has experienced extraordinary things. She chose to live her legacy instead of leaving it.<br /><br />Laura asked herself if she did not have cancer, what would she be doing with her life?<br />The answer: serving. She wanted to make a difference using her medical skills. She has a doctorate degree in nursing. She courageously participated in 11 medical missions to diverse and fascinating destinations across the globe. She was in an earthquake in Peru, a typhoon in Vietnam, and parasailed over the South China Sea. She has worked with children in hospitals around the world- sometimes surrounded by filth, stench and squalor, lacking basic medical supplies, running water, toilets, and electricity. <br /><br />Her hope is that this book will provide inspiration and the certainty that is it possible to live beyond limits. One person can make a difference. One person can overcome an insurmountable diagnosis. One person can make the world a better place. By serving others, we are served; sometimes in profound, life altering ways.<br />

A Tribute to the New Jersey - New York Kink Community. <br /> Devastated by the death of his love, Lynn, Nicholas turned to the community they had become part of: the kink community. He reconnected with some old friends, and through them, met some new ones. Randee was an in-your-face, self-proclaimed slut, and Cassie was an intriguing, intimidating dominatrix. To Nicholas, they were just his friends. <br /> Sometimes sex is just a distraction, but sometimes it can help to heal. For some people, sex is the only way they know how to seek or give comfort. Nicholas found an honesty and acceptance in the fetish community that he did not experience in his vanilla life. After his eye-opening relationship with Lynn, there was no going back. It was time to make new friends. <br /><br />What some people are saying... <br />"I don't even know what to say." - Kevin. <br /><br />"I like to sit on my naked slave and paint on a canvas while he reads your books aloud to me." - Jennifer O'Neal, artist.<br /><br /> "I'm your mother. I will never read this book." - my mother

Esse livro conta a história de uma família pobre e analfabeta, que viveu na zona rural, correndo todos os perigos que o mato oferece, mas que saiu vencedora porque andava nos caminhos de Deus.<br />Era um casal com seis crianças que dividiam os espaços com cobras, escorpiões, porcos, cavalos, bois e outros bichos, porém desfrutavam com muita sabedoria das riquezas naturais.<br />Seis crianças que viviam ao ar livre, subindo em árvores, caindo em cachoeiras, tomando chuva e andando na lama, mas que eram amparados por Deus e tinham uma educação exemplar.<br />Era uma família simples, que cria na existência de Deus, Jesus e do Espírito Santo sem duvidar. Os filhos foram educados de acordo com os ensinamentos da Bíblia Sagrada, por isso, foi a família mais alegre e abençoada da redondeza.<br />A fé em Deus era confirmada através dos milagres que recebiam. Uma criança de cerca de onze anos pedia a Deus para chover e chovia. Uma plantação que todos acreditavam que morreria, foi salva pela oração de uma criança. <br />Essa família vivia nas mãos desse Deus, aí está o segredo da vitória.<br />
