You have something important to say. Are you sure your audience is listening? Clocks start ticking in the minds of your listeners the minute you begin your presentation. These clocks measure the amount of time you have to interest them before their attention wanders elsewhere. Could be three minutes. Could be thirty seconds. But make your audience laugh and they forget about their clocks. They are too busy listening. Make them laugh and they will listen. Humor is one of your most powerful tools as a speaker, and 1001 Humorous Illustrations for Public Speaking lets you wield it with power. Michael Hodgin has compiled hundreds of humorous anecdotes on dozens of topics and brought them together in one book. From "Ability" and "Accidents" to "Work" and "Worship," Hodgin's illustrations are arranged according to topic and indexed to help you quickly find the perfect anecdote. The book also provides space to record the times and places you use each illustration, so no one will hear you tell the same joke twice. Ideal for preachers, teachers, executives, and anyone else who speaks publicly, 1001 Humorous Illustrations for Public Speaking will keep your audience laughing -- and listening to every word you say.

Everything changes the day you discover you're going to be a mom. It's not just yourself that you think about—you have a child to care for, too. While you wouldn't trade your child for the world, some days are just hard. Baby-daddy drama, dealing with your parents, and worries about school, work, and your future slam you. Your friends can't relate to your little family, and you wonder if God has turned His back on you, too. Tricia Goyer understands. A mom at age 17, Tricia remembers what it felt like to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. She's also been the coordinator of a teen mom support group for over twelve years, and she's cheered on many young moms—from all walks of life—through their journey. In Teen Mom, Tricia pours out her heart and shares advice for the hard things you face. She also longs to provide encouragement, reminding you that you can be the mom your child deserves—not in your own strength, but in the strength God provides.

The Apostle John prayed for those who were following Jesus that they would prosper even as their souls prospered. How can we ensure our soul's prosperity? Has God given us a model to follow? Is it possible that ancient truths were confirmed in the teaching and practices of those who wrote the New Testament to see people live healthy, free, and Spirit led lives? Are you ready to engage in a prayer life that has a greater impact upon your life and the lives of those around you? There are many good intensions that go along with a daily devotional life, but what we do and how we do it can hinder our progress. The keys discribed in this book not only prepare you to pray with greater confidence before God, but bring refreshing to your soul so that the life Jesus promised is the one you are experiencing!

If you hang around any given church in America long enough, you will eventually hear someone say, “God only calls us to be faithful!” It is a quaint little saying that sounds good as it rolls off the lips. But there is a serious problem with it: it just isn’t true. God calls us to be more than faithful. He calls us to be fruitful. John the Baptist put it simply, “Produce fruit in keeping with repentance” (Matthew 3:8), and Jesus Himself said, “This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples” (John 15:8). Too many have settled merely for a faithful life. They faithfully attend church, faithfully give of their finances, and faithfully try to be nice to people. That’s commendable, but do you long for something more than that? Does your heart cry out for a life that transcends faithful duty and actually bears fruit—fruit that will last for eternity? Then this book was written with you in mind. Using humor, inspiration, and everyday illustrations, pastor and author Adam Parrish looks to the first generation of the Church for instruction and inspiration to help us fulfill God’s call to be fruitful.

Here's the problem: 17 million Americans suffer from heart disease, and every year 1 million of them will be just lucky enough to survive a heart attack. They know they must change their lives—their diet, their stress, the amount of exercise they do. And not for a few months, but forever. Most don't do it. What they need, as much as low-fat recipes and fitness plans, is daily motivation—a reassuring yet no-nonsense guide to staying the course to heart health. Here's the solution: From Joseph C. Piscatella, one of the longest-surviving bypass patients in the U.S.—31 years and counting—comes a supportive, generous, think-positive book that shares the secret of his extraordinary success. This is the stuff that kept Joe going—a year-long selection of motivational stories, inspirations, quotes, wisdom, meditations, tips, and more. When it's 5:00 A.M. and raining outside and you're tempted to skip that morning jog, remember "runner" Bob Ireland, a Vietnam vet who lost both legs in the war yet finished the New York marathon using only his arms, the first person ever to do so. Think little things don't make a difference? Take a lesson from golf: An average of less than 1.5 strokes per round in the 2002 season made a $5.6 million difference in earnings between #1 golfer (Tiger Woods) and #10 golfer (Sergio Ggarcia). And why a book of everyday entries? "People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing—that's why we recommend it daily."—Zig Ziglar.
