Mission Walker, The : I was given three months to live...
Author: Sundby, Edie Littlefield
Description:
This story is not about avoiding death, but living life.

Immerse yourself in the amazing story of 62-year old Edie Sundby, who, after being told she had 3 months to live, walked 800 miles instead through the California wilderness. Averaging 14 miles a day and stopping at life-giving missions along the way to revive her body and her soul. She followed that with another 800 mile walk through Northern Mexico to the California border. With fading strength and only one lung, she carried her mortality in every step and in the process opened up a profound communion with God and his creation. In her first walk, she was duplicating the trail of Father Junipero Serra, a Franciscan missionary in the mid-1800's who established nine missions between San Diego and San Francisco. The second walk through Northern Mexico is one of the toughest in the western hemisphere and mirrors the path taken by Jesuit missionaries fleeing persecution. It is a story of triumph, of harrowing adventure, and of spiritual enlightenment.

And all of this with a terminal cancer that was chasing her every step of the way. It still is, and she continues to walk with it every day.

For me, walking is a transcendent physical/emotional/spiritual experience, like dancing. If I can move, I am not sick.That is my alternate reality. And I believe with all my will in that reality. So when cancer strikes (or in the throes of battle) I believe that if I walk I will live; when I stop I die.

And I didn't just survive. I have lived every second since. I have walked 1600 miles and braved the inhospitable Mexican desert. Because life is not meant to just be survived.

Life is the greatest adventure there is. Why stop your adventuring when knowing the end is near?

This book will not only connect with readers through her bravery and authenticity but also through the adventure itself and the lives of spiritual trailblazers who forged the path many years ago.

Doing Busy Better: Enjoying God's Gifts of Work and Rest
Author: Whitwer, Glynnis
Description:
So many women are living overcommitted lives and buckling under the nagging guilt. When they are busy, they feel guilty for not playing with their kids or having a quiet time of prayer and Bible study. When they try to rest, they feel guilty because there's so much left to do. It's an endless cycle of overwork and exhaustion. Yet inside every woman's heart is a longing for true rest. It's there because God designed us that way--but it seems out of reach.

Enough is enough. Our lives probably aren't going to get less busy, especially if we're in a demanding season of life, but we can do busy better. In this burden-lifting book, Glynnis Whitwer helps women examine their hearts and their schedules in order to seek a healthy and holy balance between--and enjoyment of--both work and rest. She shows readers how to prioritize their goals and their time, how to be present in the moment as Jesus was, and how to find the freedom of true soul rest. Most importantly, she shows women that their worth is found not in their accomplishments but in the love of the One who made them for work and for rest.

Voice, The Revolution and the Key, The (Epic Order of the Seven Series, 5)
Author: Cote, Jenny L.
Description:
Picking up where The Roman, the Twelve, and the King left off, with the 1743 London premiere of Handel's Messiah, the Order of the Seven animal team must split up for their next mission: the birth of a new nation. Team leader Gillamon tells them, Each of us will be witness to a unique point in history because of a unique generation of world leaders. Most of them are just children now, or have not yet even been born. Take note of how important one generation of children can be. Marvel at each child and the power they have to change the history of the world for the good of all.

Liz, Max, Nigel and Clarie sail for the colony of Virginia to deliver a letter that will impact Liz's assigned human: Patrick Henry. Liz must help young Patrick find his
true purpose in life--to become the Voice of the Revolution. She begins her quest when he is a seven year-old boy who cares more about fishing and exploring the
forest in Virginia than about school. Her task will take time, as Patrick Henry will fail at everything he tries. Liz eventually leads Patrick to take up law, and finally accomplishes her mission when he finds his powerful voice in a courtroom. Little does Patrick Henry or the colony of Virginia know that his voice will set the ball of the American Revolution in motion. Henry will be the only one bold enough to first speak out against the tyrannical King of England, calling for the colonies to rise up and fight for independence. Liberty or death! becomes the battle cry to unite thirteen solitary colonies as one nation under God to fight the mighty British lion.

Meanwhile, Max must see to the protection of young George Washington, who inadvertently starts the French and Indian War. The enemy will mount continual assaults on Washington, from enemy snipers to treasonous members of his military staff. If he is lost, all is lost. Nigel goes on a high-flying kite assignment with Benjamin Franklin to ensure the success of an experiment that will impact the outcome of the war in ways no one could imagine. Al remains in London to live in the royal palace, gathering intelligence right under the nose of King George III. The simple-minded cat will be responsible for delivering some Common Sense to America. Kate is assigned to the richest orphan in France, the young Marquis de Lafayette, who is crucial to the entire quest for Independence. If he doesn't make it to America, the Declaration of Independence will lead not to liberty, but to death for America

Review
I wish I was articulate enough to convey how superbly crafted these chapters are. If good writing is meant to evoke thought and passion, then Jenny L. Cote has accomplished both. The real prize is stirring up a personal responsibility in the hearts of the next generation to be steadfast, to cherish liberty and do whatever is necessary to preserve it. Henry's eloquent words are as applicable today as they were when he spoke them, and under Cote's deft handling are now resurrected to new life. Oh how I pray that Cato's words, Patrick Henry's words, Cote's words will inspire young men and women to love God, live with integrity and fight for liberty.

Haunted by memories of his mother?who died when Blade was nine?and the ruin his father?s washed-up legacy and life have brought to the family, Blade is left to figure out life on his own.

All may not be well in the Morrison home, but things are looking up for Blade, until he discovers a deeply protected family secret?one that further threatens his relationship with his family and has him questioning his own identity. Thrown into a tailspin, Blade decides the only way he will understand his past and begin his future is to find out the truth behind the music and himself.

With his signature intricacy, intimacy, and poetic style, Kwame Alexander explores what it means to finally come home.

Review
When Hadley Jamison finds out a fellow classmate, Archer Morales, committed suicide, she can't help but feel she could have stopped him. Then at the funeral she runs into Death who has a proposition for her. She has 27 days to stop Archer from killing himself. Hadley goes back in time and is determined to stop Archer. Problem is he wants nothing to do with her and pushes her away. Hadley must decide to put everything on the line if she has any hope of saving Archer but she has to hurry as time is ticking down. What worked: This is an addictive, fast-paced read where Death makes a proposition for Hadley to go back in time to stop a classmate from killing himself. I got swept up in the drama as Hadley goes out of her way to befriend Archer. Hadley is one of those stereotypical 'rich' NYC girls while Archer's family owes a coffee house. They're different in so many ways, yet also alike. While Hadley's parents are rich successful business people, she's often left alone in their apartment. Her quest to save Archer pushes her to step outside her comfort zone. The strength of this story has to be how Hadley goes out of her way to get to Archer. There's a lot behind his standoffish behavior. As Hadley gets closer, secrets come out about what might have behind Archer's deadly decision. I liked Hadley's determination and spunk even when Archer goes out of his way to let her know he's not interested. Another huge plus has to be how the author breaks down the stereotypes behind what a suicidal person looks and acts like. Archer has a large loving family but also a terrible secret. Hadley refuses to ignore his rudeness at first as she tries hard to reach out to him. A twist on Groundhog's Day meets Death, this paranormal tale will have readers turning the pages to see if Hadley stops Archer from making a tragic mistake. (YA Books Central)
