How big is your God? Have you ever come face to face with a Holy God? Have you ever considered what would happen to you if you did? Do you consider yourself to be "messed up, missing the mark, lacking, or a failure?" Do you deal with memories that haunt you due to regret, unforgiveness, or PTSD? Or do you think that you are "all that" or "God's gift to this world?" Well, this book will address these topics and more! Karen was an 18-year-old rape victim with a "don't mess with me" attitude. She had a reputation - one where people would say, "Hey, you don't want to mess with that girl, she will drink you under the table, she will cuss you like a sailor, she will fight you until she draws blood, and she will cut you up with her words and spit you out!" This is the "tough-girl baggage" that Karen brought with her when she began her corporate career as the traffic manager of a subsidiary of the largest maritime shipping company in the United States. Despite growing up in that waterfront industry and having the tenacity, disciplines and skills to handle the public relations and manage thousands of tons of cargo moving internationally and locally, she struggled with having that same drive to manage her own personal life. Through this time Karen occasionally thought of crying out to God for help, but she presumed Him to be dis-interested in her plight and most likely a wimp compared to the enormity of her crisis. Then one night, she read a book that was mysteriously delivered to her house. This book, "Power for Living," contained testimonies of corporate high rollers, sports icons and managers like her but who had surrendered their lives over to the Lord and had been blessed in doing so. After considering what she had read, she began to pray the prayer of commitment to Jesus that was recorded in the back of the book, but she added one additional request of God. She defiantly demanded that He prove to her that He was tougher than she was because she refused to serve a wimpy God. Well, God accepted her challenge that night and what He revealed to her is what she is passionate to share with all. Karen's ministry began as she used the gifts and knowledge she received from God to speak His prophetic truths into people's lives. Most come away experiencing joy and peace, being delivered from what had kept them in fear, unforgiveness, or bound to their past. When teaching, Karen has an uncanny way of pressing against those dark places in your character, worldview, or behaviors that many have adopted as their "comfort zone," or "I just can't change" places. By skillfully using stories, scriptures and questions, these truths will challenge you to see "yourself" as God sees you and guide you to receive His deliverance from what torments you. Are you ready to live life differently, to see God differently, and to take off your mask and keep it off? Then get ready to experience freedom and intimacy with a Holy God as you learn how to "face the darkness within you."

The Darkness Within (And the Darkness of Climate Change)
Author: David MacQuarrie
There are many books written on the need to change consciousness but rarely does anyone explore the depths of humanity's refusal to do so, even under threat of the approaching cataclysm in our refusal to deal with climate change. Dave MacQuarrie has written such a book. In it, he explains both why it is so difficult for us to change and what all of us can do to become more aware and more free of the darkness within. It is a superb book. — Jim Garrison, President and CEO of Ubiquity University, and author of Civilization and the Transformation of Power. Acedia is a well-informed and inspired book about the historical and psychological origins of a centuries old affliction. Acedia masterfully connects the dots between personal psychological traumas and looming environmental collapse. Dr. MacQuarrie pulls no punches, yet offers a ray of hope that we just might save our future. — Christian de Quincey, PhD, Professor of Philosophy and Consciousness Studies, John F. Kennedy University, and author of Radical Nature: The Soul of Matter. This is a wise, searching book by an authentic scholar and seeker. It helps us enter into the darker waters of our crisis, and find their treasures of dark wisdom and endurance. — Andrew Harvey, poet, mystical scholar, Founder/Director of the Institute of Sacred Activism, and author of The Hope: A Guide to Sacred Activism. Dr. MacQuarrie has lifted the ancient monastic curse of acedia out of its medieval tomb and applied it aptly to the dis-ease of the contemporary world. His interpretation of the human resistance is perceptive and provides important insights into our present inclination to repudiate changes that demand action on our part. A serious and sensitive work. — Father John-Julian, an Episcopal priest and contemplative monk, translator of Julian of Norwich's Revelations of Divine Love.

And all this in an election year. When fate brings Ames and Moore together, the two join forces to stop the killer before tragedy strikes again. In the midst of chaos and danger Susan must come to terms with the limitations of her psychic abilities while Ames must battle his own feelings of inadequacy and deal with a town that no longer has faith in his abilities as a peace officer.
