The purpose of this book is to share my experiences and what I have seen around me in the last 20 years through the expression of poems.

Even though it is very personal, it can still be related to any individual of any age around the world, no matter who you are or where you are from. Every person should read this book as it’s something we all go through it’s the “Journey of Life” from beginning to end and thereafter.

Loving, Lamenting and Meditation, Middle Eastern Style
Author: Tarif Youssef-Agha
Publisher: Xlibris Corporation
This book takes you closer than ever to the Middle Eastern views of love, death, and life all through the eyes of a Syrian poet who lived his youth in the ancient capital city of Damascus. In the first section, he is exchanging words of love with pretty women who invaded his heart—giving joys or causing wounds. In the next one, he is shedding tears for beloved ones who were kidnapped by death, leaving deep, painful scars behind. And in the last one, he is trying to make sense of the endless mysteries of life, which will continue to be a puzzle forever. Visit his bilingual website at http://sites.google.com/site/tarifspoetry.

Publisher: Cross Books Pub
Most people believe life to be a linear experience. They see their existence as a slow, often monotonous migration from birth to childhood, blasting through adolescence and college. Then there's the relentless strain of work, family, and the struggles life brings. Ultimately, most people have a sense there is more to come, a life beyond this treadmill more than an existence: a fulfillment. The Journey of Life is a culmination of a project taken on by one church and its staff. Led by Dr. Glen Martin, senior pastor of Journey of Faith Church, the goal is more than a book and more than a series. The goal is to encourage people to see life as a journey and offer a community, known as Journey of Faith Church, an invitation to examine what God wants us to learn along the way. We invite you to join us through The Journey of Life. There are lessons to learn and principles to extract. After all, it is the Scriptures that teach us a heart of wisdom awaits those who learn to "number our days." Welcome to The Journey of Life.
A Journey of Life and Faith
Author: Linda Ruth Brooks
Publisher: Linda Ruth Brooks
Category: Body, Mind & Spirit
There are over 30 poems in Linda's latest book, 'A Winding Road'. With her usual fearless honesty, Linda approaches the presence of God through the light and darkness of life. Both lost and found, she chronicles the path from her first confronting days of nursing at eighteen, to the present. With the courage of vulnerability, in her latest collection of poetry, Linda invites us to walk a mile in her shoes – that very human journey of life and faith.“I have fought in the trenches. I lost, and won. The losses often felt larger than the gains. Unlike my schooldays, in God's schoolroom, I chafed at the lessons. Who was God? Who was I? Life's answers aren't outlined on page or in song, they are lived – in, and through.”

Publisher: Lulu Press, Inc
Category: Biography & Autobiography
Using a quote from our fabulous former First Lady Michelle Obama “You have a right to be exactly who you are,” in this book Claudette Crouse embraces who she really is. She reveals her chaotic childhood, her struggle with depression, and her failed first marriage. She shares the lessons she learned, and describes in detail how she overcame challenges and obstacles that affected her as a woman in all aspects of her life: personal, social, and professional. And she opens up about her encounters with men, and why she thinks they bear considerable watching. The insights and knowledge she shares on leadership and corporate savvy, which are aspects of corporate success, are priceless. Claudette ends her story by hailing the importance of girlfriends; she emphasizes the word “girlfriends” and the power of having faith. “Claudette Crouse is wise and open and sometimes scary honest. Whatever she shares will be worth reading.” — Anne Ashmore-Hudson, Ph.D.
