Can’t Nothing Bring Me Down is the memoir of 101-year-old, world-record-holding runner Ida Keeling. Miss Ida, as she’s known throughout her Bronx community, isn’t your typical runner. Her fierce independence helped her through the Depression and the Civil Rights movement. But her greatest trials were yet to come. Ida’s two sons were brutally murdered. Justice was never found. Ida felt like she didn’t have the strength to carry on and she couldn’t hope anymore. But encouraged by her daughter, Ida put on her first pair of running shoes at the age of sixty-seven and began to chase the paralyzing sorrow from her heart. Running gave light and new energy to Ida, and since her first race nearly thirty-five years ago, she’s kept running and never looked back. Holding the world record for the fastest time in the 60-meter dash for the 95-99 age group, Ida isn’t slowing down. Now she gives us a clear picture of what it means to overcome obstacles. Ida Keeling shares her inspirational story about growing up as a child of immigrants during the Depression and later raising four children as a single mother. She offers time-tested truths gathered from a lifetime of watching a nation change and from a life-long faith in Jesus. “Every night, I thank him for my many blessings, for his guidance, for his protection,” Ida says, “And every night he tells me, 'Miss Ida, you just keep on, because I ain't done with you yet."

This story poses a profound question - do we accept the hand that fate deals us, or do we battle to make the most of the life we have and help others in the process? Chris Graham, just 38 years old but already facing the advanced stages of Alzheimer's disease, has emphatically chosen the latter. Having lived through a troubled childhood, Chris joined the British Army at a young age and found that the life of a soldier provided him with a much-needed sense of stability. However, his world was turned upside down when, at just 34 years of age, he was diagnosed with a form of early onset dementia. This brutal disease had already claimed the life of his father at 42, along with several other members of his family, and tragically had already confined his brother to a nursing home at the age of 43. In his brother's life, Chris could see a terrifying window into his own near future. Chris, though, is an extraordinary human being. Having been handed nothing less than a death sentence, he decided overnight to stand up to this horrendous disease and do something to leave his mark before it was too late. And so it was that last year, Chris embarked on an awareness-raising 16,000-mile solo cycle around North America, armed only with his bike, a sense of humour, and some good old-fashioned British grit. Leaving his ever-supportive wife Vicky and baby son Dexter at home, he took on huge challenges - for instance, the fear that the ability to discern left from right might leave him at any point while navigating an entire continent - and made it home in time for Christmas, determined to spending however long he has left pouring his love and attention into his family life. Five Minutes of Amazing is both the story of Chris' epic journey and of his fight against the disease increasingly being recognised as the defining disease of our generation. Inspiring and heart-rending in equal measure, it's as important as it is moving, and it will touch everyone who reads it.

Life obstacles that we experience good or bad pave our path. Although it may appear things are not working in your favor always remember God will see his people through. Our father watches every tear we cry whether it is tears of love, joy, laughter, hurt or pain. We must understand each situation we encounter is not by accident, for God is the author of our life. The Lord has made each of us a testimony that should be shared among one another and he deserves all the glory. As a youngster, I was told there is no problem to hard for our Lord Jesus Christ to solve. We all have a purpose, every day situation prepares us for things that lay ahead, so when opportunities are presented we know how to react or handle them.

Leaving With Love

Once in a great while, a book speaks to us with such honesty and grace that by the time its final sentence echoes in the mind, its truth has found a permanent place in our hearts. Leaving With Love is such a book. On one level, it is the story of a year in the life of Dorothea Stephens-Stevie to those she loves-as she seeks to understand the long-held patterns and imprinting which have entangled the "heart connections" she makes with friends, family and especially lovers. But Leaving With Love's depth cannot be measured in a single calendar year. As Stevie's journey unfolds like a revelation, we witness every step in her unflinching yet heartfelt search for the one person she must inevitably cherish above all others-herself. Leaving With Love is a remarkable literary debut. It is at once a love story, a meditation on the enduring power of family, and a travelogue of the heart. It proves, as few books in recent memory have, that only when we depart from old patterns can we finally arrive at new truths.

In Saigon during the waning days of the Vietnam War, a small-time journalist named John Converse thinks he'll find action - and profit - by getting involved in a big-time drug deal. But back in the States, things go horribly wrong for him. Dog Soldiers perfectly captures the underground mood of America in the 1970s, when amateur drug dealers and hippies encountered profiteering cops and professional killers—and the price of survival was dangerously high.
