The Captain’s Coin is the story of an immigrant 13 year old youth escaping the web of starvation and death in his native County Cork during the Potato Famine. Michael Brady, young, naïve and afraid sets foot in a strange city, intent on surviving. His story will resonate well with anyone who has had to reexamine the direction of their lives while readjusting to the realities of life’s challenges.The Captain’s Coin is a fictional account of Michael Brady’s journey from Ireland to America in 1848 aboard a ‘coffin ship’ to New York City at the height of the Irish Potato Famine. Once aboard, Michael wins the respect of the captain who gives him a token ‘good luck coin’ and a letter of recommendation to a leading New York businessman. This opening allows him to rise up the corporate ladder, marry an abolitionist only to suffer the loss of this young wife at the onset of the Civil War. Volunteering his services to offset his grief, he saves the Union at the Battle of Antietam, his ‘lucky coin,’ deflecting a life-threatening wound and thus saving his life. He returns home a hero and is elected to the NYS Assembly, rising to Speaker and running for Governor in 1888.Michael Brady’s journey is a journey from destitution to the pinnacle of political power. His story will enrich those who have had to cope with sudden and catastrophic challenges. It is a story of strength and hope and the ultimate will to survive.Born in Troy, New York, John V.

Sarah Hart lives with her husband in Salt Lake City, Utah. She has two bunny children, Pippin and Bubba, whom she loves and adores.
Ever since she was a little girl, Sarah’s imagination was hard at play. Story-telling was a large part of her play time, and her Barbie dolls rarely had an easy life (just ask Ken, who was tied up and bound to the hallway hamper because an evil witch had imprisoned him to her dungeon). More than playing at home, though, Sarah’s imagination also went into her school work. Sarah’s mother noticed a creative flare when projects were brought home that required a written report or story. Because her mother saw something special in the way Sarah wrote, she encouraged her daughter’s imagination to soar when putting pen to paper.
With encouragement from parents Sarah grew from child to young teenager, and Sarah kept at this beloved hobby; she wrote several small stories, a few bigger ones, and eventually branched into fanfiction.
At the age of seventeen, Sarah wrote a short Christian inspirational story titled ‘The Coin’ that she always had a dream to publish. Now, over ten years later, Sarah attended an Aspiring Author’s Summit in February of 2013, and gained enough knowledge and information to pursue the route of self-publishing for that work of fiction. April 2013, she achieved her goal becoming a published author. ‘The Coin’ is her first published work. She has plans to write a five book series,the first book: Spellbound. A Superhero Action Gay Romance.

discussing the time honored sport of Fox Hunting!
It's all about watching the beauty of the country, the hounds working with the Hunt staff and ridiing with friends.
Foxes are smarter than the hounds and watch the hounds run circles around them, while they watch from the hiding places.
Today we’ll take a look at one place in scripture where Jesus told 3 parables back to back to back about just what I’ve been talking about – losing things!As we take a look at these 3 stories, what we’re going to notice is Jesus driving home a very important point about how God feels about people just like us. As I read through these verses now, be looking for the common elements that come through.
One of the unfortunate lessons many of us learned is that when times become tough, no one's job is safe. When you're called into your boss's office and are fired or laid off, you should have a plan in place before you walk out of their door.
