Description : A Proverb a Day Keeps the Devil Away applies the principles of God found in the Book of Proverbs to daily living. Illustrations are used to trigger the memories of its readers to past and present experiences in life; hopefully, causing the lesson of each devotion to profoundly impact the reader. These illustrations stem from relationships, home, work, play, decisions, reactions, thoughts, injustice and justice. Some are humorous and some very serious. Each one demonstrates the theme of that verse. The Book of Proverbs is as timely as time itself. Times have changed but people have not. They still face the hard issues of life: the same fears and hurts, the same temptations and sin, the same struggle with what is right and wrong, and the same questions about what role God really plays in their life. This devotional study aids its readers in getting a grip on these challenges. Philip Ayers was born in Roanoke, Virginia, on March 2nd, 1948. He is the second born of a family of five.

Description : The ancient prophets were a different breed. Though embedded in the midst of the people, administering and serving in much the same capacity as their counterparts, an inner longing to know set them apart. It was not enough to be a minister of the Lord; they wanted to know the intent of the one for whom they ministered. For them the morning sunrise was the beginning of another days inquiry, an inner desire to belie life on a rock eternal. It is through them the Creator finds voice, as the prophet scans the worlds panorama with spiritual eyes, ever longing that all people would see what they see and understand what is heard. It is the cry Moses had for Israel, that all would be prophets. Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophets own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:2021 NIV). The Bible is both history and a prelude of history with an impeccable purpose. It does not deviate in dealing with three objectives: the fall of humanity, its redemption, and final liberation. As a worlds best seller, it is faulted for removing the mystique, updating and critiquing future events only as those events occur. Until the Bible deliberates, the archives of world history are mere fillers of rampant human instinct. But its final resolution is here, with immense biblical documentation, with the promise to be understood by all people. Keeping in mind that Gods intent remains to redeem and liberate, even to the very door of human extinction.

It's science project time in Ms. Adolf's class. This is good news and bad news for Hank-he loves science, but he hates the report part. So Hank turns to TV to take his mind off things. But when the program directory scrolls by too quickly for Hank to know what's on, he decides to take apart the cable box to try to slow down the crawl. Great! Now Hank has found the perfect science project! But what he wasn't counting on was his sister's pet iguana laying eighteen eggs in the disassembled cable box. How is Hank going to get out of this one? Illustrated by Carol Heyer.
Description : Steven Church grew up in the 1970s and ’80s in Lawrence, Kansas, a town whose predictable daily rhythms give way easily to anxiety—and a place that, since Civil War times, has been a canvas for sporadic scenes of havoc and violence in the popular imagination. Childhood was quiet on the surface, but Steven grew up scared—scared of killer tornadoes, winged monkeys, violent movies, authority figures, the dissolution of his parents’ marriage, and most of all in Reagan’s America, nuclear war. His fantasies of nuclear meltdown, genetic mutation, and post-apocalyptic survival find a focal point in 1982 when filming begins in Lawrence for The Day After, a film which would go on to become the second-highest Nielsen-rated TV movie. Despite cheesy special effects, melodramatic plotlines, and the presence of Steve Guttenberg, the movie had an instant and lasting impact on Church, and an entire generation. Combining interview, personal essay, film criticism, fact, and flights of imagination, Church’s richly layered and darkly comic memoir explores the meaning of Cold War fears for his generation and their resonance today.

Description : Every day in life is a new day, every day we have been graciously given the opportunity to start over and make the day before, our yesterday. So many times we hold on to our past not realizing that yesterday is over and we can move forward in a new day, and that yesterday can't bind us, unless we allow it. You, me, we, are not our yesterday. We are not the past things that we have done and sometimes it is hard for us to understand that because we have people in our life that constantly remind us of the things that we have done, we have a mirror that holds the reflection of our past hurts and pains, and it holds us to our yesterday.
