HOW LIFE WAS AND IS AND SHOULD BE: A Digest of David N. Lewis' Best Thoughts on Life as a Boy, a Teacher, and a Man

by David N. Lewis

‘How life was and is’ is always a subject of filtered memory. We seem to remember the worst and best of our past, but not the basic dark hardships that everyone faces in every generation. That ultimately leads many of us ‘old codgers’ to refer to our past as the ‘golden era.’ Obviously, every generation has its positives and negatives. We just do not remember things that way culturally. In this compilation, I attempt to focus on three general topics: 1-My Life and Some Lessons I have Learned2-On Teaching: A Collection of My Writings3-On Boyhood: A Collection of My Reflective Writings‘How life should be’ is a matter of opinion and applied lessons learned; therefore, I address this aspect of my compilation at the end of my various narrative entries.One of my main points of focus in this book is the degradation of our cultures value of male identity. To that end I address one small, but very important aspect of that degradation, i.e., decreased reading skills in all areas and genres for boys. This cultural phenomenon has led to the ever decreasing 'reading for fun' among our youth and especially our boys. This is causing a measurable deleterious effect. Males in large numbers are entering adulthood without knowing the fine art of manliness or possessing employable intellectual skills, e.g., writing well, reading instructions, and creative expressions which are hallmarks of a productive population.To that end, I write and record stories that have a Christian worldview and attempt to appeal to the young men and boys struggling to grow an awesome imagination. My sincere desire is to provide quality narratives to invigorate creativity and mostly to encourage Reading for Fun.

Free and Fearless: The Amazing Impact of One Precious Life

by Phil Moser

The True Story of Brittany MoserDiscovering Life in the Midst of LossI am writing this book to tell our story, of how Brittany’s short life truly made a difference to me and many others. She taught us: How precious the one life we have is and how we can affect the people around us. How keeping an open mind and a positive attitude can inspire us to do things we never thought possible. How to move out of what makes us comfortable and into a challenging existence which can turn every day into an exciting gift to be explored. How not to be controlled by fear, but to use our untouched abilities to seek unique, positive, and inspiring adventures we could never have imagined. To embrace change as a natural part of life. To enjoy every moment because there are no guarantees in this world. And finally, we won’t be remembered by our things or our savings accounts, but how we made people feel when we interacted with them.This is a story about the life of Brittany, our spirited, happy-go-lucky child who enjoyed every moment and has helped me to live my life to its fullest. She taught me how to laugh, to love, and to live in a way I never dreamed possible. This book is not about the grief of losing a child, but about making the most out of what we are given and living our lives positively and not out of fear. Brittany inspired me, an ordinary farm boy, to explore life, to climb mountains, and to write a book. Her story must be told. It’s the just right thing to do.A portion of the proceeds from each sale of this book will be donated to the National Adrenal Disease Foundation (NADF) to help support those with Addison’s Disease.

Teach your child not to send or share anything online that he or she would not want the entire world to see for eternity. No matter how smart or mature you feel your child is, monitor his or her online and social media behavior.Your child is bound to make mistakes using media. Talk to your child and help him or her learn from them. Also, model positive online etiquette yourself.Managing your child's use of screens and media will be an ongoing challenge. But by developing household rules— and revisiting them as your child grows — you can help ensure a safe and fun experience.

Cicada Spring: A Novel

by Christian Galacar

On a warm May evening in the spring of 1979, the people of Heartsridge, Massachusetts, are living the American dream. Families are gathered for barbecues. Kids are playing in front yards. Gardens are being kept. Meanwhile, Kara Price stumbles home through the woods, raped and beaten, her life shattered by a wicked act of violence, perpetrated by one of the town’s most beloved and public figures.

Surrounding Kara is a cast of compelling and nefarious characters—a violent-tempered mayor who can do no wrong in the eyes of the town, a sheriff bound by the rules and plagued by a guilty conscience, a father bent on revenge, a serial killer in the midst of an identity crisis. And at the center of it all there's Kara, who just wants to move on with her life and forget everything that happened to her. But how can she do that when everyone thinks she is a liar who is only out for attention? With plot and emotion braided together by a careful hand, this haunted group of people all acting on behalf of their own interests begs the question: How far would you go to protect your own?
