    Author Gary Rodriguez will be my guest on Sunday, Dec. 14th. We'll be chatting about his new book, Escape Through the Wilderness.


    About the book:


    Escape Through The Wilderness is a timely reminder that children's adventure stories remain ever popular and this is one that deserves to grab the spotlight. A full on attention grabber from the start, Rodriguez spins his debut in endearing prose, his plot exciting, inventive and wholly convincing in its implementation, with plenty of unpredicted twists and turns along the way. Undeniably, a story about friendship, his young protagonists are ably observed with well-crafted personas which allow room for growth as their peril evolves. It’s a splendid telling that will certainly engage the imaginations of his young readers. There’s suspense, plenty of tension and gratifyingly dark overtures which children will lap up, but it never feels rushed with every chapter leaving the reader hungry for more. On cursory reflection it is simply a cracking story, but the thematic undertones reflect the loss of innocence and the fundamental issue of survival which would be invaluable for parent-child discussion.


    About the author:


    My name is Gary Rodriguez, and I live in California. I'm the president of LeaderMetrix Inc., a consulting company that specializes in senior-level executive coaching, organizational development, and conflict resolution.
    Previously, I worked for eighteen years in the radio business as an executive where I spent several years as one of the original managers of Infinity Broadcasting.

    About the book:


    I write this book to share my life story with whoever wants to learn that, from the most meager beginnings wrecked with abuse and negativity, a human being can emerge as a whole person who has much to give to the world around him.
    Follow me as I take you through my life from a troubled childhood, through the world of professional wrestling, to youth ministry and foster parent. It is here that I have found the most rewarding life: sharing


     


     


     


    About the author:


    I was born the youngest of five to a mother and father that fought every day that I can remember.  My father had an explosive temper and it was nothing for him to violently beat us and throw tools at us while at our family-owned gas station.  I slept with a baseball bat every night.  All through the house, you could find fist wholes behind pictures on the wall and in doors.  When my parents divorced after 30 tortuous years, I was then subjected to a step-father who had a drug problem; taking over 20 Percodan’s a day.

    Meet author Jim Greene. Jim will be joining me tomorrow on the show to discuss his book series, Unlocking Spiritual Greatness.


    About the book:


    Just like there are specific physical exercises that are good for physical conditioning, there are specific spiritual exercises that are good, in fact, essential for our spiritual conditioning and growth. If you want to grow spiritually, you have to do spiritual exercises. (1Timothy 4:8)


    This book looks to Jesus for “duplicate-able” activities for the model for our growth. For years Christian writers have identified specific activities regularly evidenced in his earthly life and called them Spiritual or Christian Disciplines. I believe that if it was useful for Jesus to be disciplined in his worship and praise to God, then it is useful for us as well. Further, I believe that the inclusion of Christian Disciplines in our lives, or what I call the Disciplined Training Approach places us in obedient submission to God and that is where we are supposed to be. 


    About the author:


     Jim Greene makes his home in Knoxville, TN in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. An avid backpacker, his countless hours in the outdoors have often blessed him with many topics to write about. As a layman Sunday School teacher, he challenges himself and his class to strive for and enjoy a closer relationship with God. Each of his books look to God as the ultimate authority in our lives. Jim feels God speaks to him personally through journaling and his books primarily came to answer a question in his life. They may just help you too.?

    Meet St Louis author Raechel 'Dr. Rae" Rivers.  I'll be chatting with "Dr. Rae" about her book, Journey to Self: Journey to Love.


    About the book:


    Journey to Self: Journey to Love is a collection of personal poems, thoughts, and blog entries from my journey through love. In searching for love, I've continued to make a full circle back to myself and my Creator. Some of the stories are sad and some funny, but all are worth sharing. It is my hope that lives will be touched and changed by seeing the authenticity of my experiences and perceptions. I'm not afraid of the truth; it is what sets me free . . . During my short 30 years of life, I've experienced so much about "love" and relationships. I trust that we all have experienced our fair share. What if your experiences and being healed from the lessons learned are a part of your assignment from God? Now who signs up for heartache and pain? Not one of us. If these experiences can be used to help a younger generation or to help heal another, I'm ready to share. What I've learned about love is that it is a journey just like life! Sure it hasn't all been roses and it hasn't all been heartache, but it has been a road that has led me back to my first love; God, my Creator. This is the refreshing part of the journey. This is the part of the journey where all of Heaven and the Angels rejoice in knowing that we have remembered the One who first loved us.


    About the author:


    Raechel "Dr. Rae" Rivers was born and raised in St. Louis, MO. She has enjoyed creative writing since childhood.

    Meet author Jack Barr. I'll be chatting with Jack about his new book, Failing at Fatherhood: A Book for the Imperfect Father.


    About the book:


    "Why do I fear her so much? Marley is my own flesh and blood, yet I lie here silently as a new father wondering if I will be here in the morning."


    When Jack Barr and his wife, Jana, had their first child, they were overcome with joy and excitement. Three days later, as they prepared to leave the hospital, two doctors entered their room debating whether newborn baby Marley, had Down syndrome. Mixed in with the confusion of whether or not their daughter was chromosomally different, Jack and Jana knew their lives would be changed forever.


    Failing at Fatherhood embraces Jack's honest struggles as a father, after receiving his child's diagnosis of Down syndrome three weeks after her birth. He excavates the past, examines the present, and explores his future life in a sincere attempt to understand his personal failures as a father during his first year of parenthood. Throughout the book, Jack wrestles with the decision of divorce, suicide, and the existence of God. However, with His ultimate direction, Jack is able to understand the significance of fathers being committed to their children.


    About the author:


    Three years ago, Jack and Jana did not know God would use their daughter Marley, to forever alter their life plan. Marley was born with Down syndrome and that event sent Jack crashing into a sea of depression. "I could not overcome the question of, Why us God"? Since that day, Jack and Jana have rerouted their plan to align with God's plan. They started, If They Had A Voice, an awareness campaign that focuses on Down syndrome abortions.
