''This is who I am'' is the true life story of Gary Hardwick who was born and raised in Maryville, Tennessee. Throughout the book you will learn Gary's life story and all of the struggles he faced that he would have not been able to overcome without our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It's amazing how much our lives change, once we accept Jesus as our guidance through our lives and start living for him. Where God leads, He guides and where He guides, He provides. Thank you to everyone who is supporting me through what Jesus has giving me the knowledge to do. I give him all of the glory and credit for this amazing journey of writing my very first book. I pray that you will receive a blessing from my book and that if you haven't already that you make the choice to leave you're live for Jesus. -Gary Hardwick

Chauncey Smith had loving, attentive parents and a safe, nurturing home. But he knew a piece of him was missing—a relationship with his biological parents. Adopted as an infant, Chauncey was raised with the importance of Family and Faith. But it wasn’t until adulthood, when Chauncey set out on a quest to locate his biological mother and father, that he truly understood this. At times joyous, at times heartbreaking, Chauncey’s journey included his adoptive parents and siblings, friends, and biological family members who didn’t even know who he was. His determination to make peace with his past culminated in an experience readers won’t be likely to forget. Written for those raised by their biological parents as well as adoptees, So That’s Who I Am sheds light on what it’s like to be adopted and provides a relatable yet unique story sure to resonate with other adoptees. Regardless of their backgrounds, however, readers will learn that adoptees didn’t have a choice: our first inheritance was abandonment. We are simply different—neither better nor worse—and we can find healing in this journey.

This book by the author of Why Am I Afraid to Love? contains insights on self-awareness, personal growth and communication with others. Why do people continually hide their real selves from the people around them? Why are so many so insecure and afraid to open up? The answer, explains John Powell, is that maturity is reached by communicating and interacting with others. This book considers the consequences our real self faces if no one else ever finds out what we are like. In this enduring classic, the companion to Why Am I Afraid to Love?, John Powell explains how to be more emotionally open, and shows how people adopt roles and play psychological games to protect their inner selves. The courage to be our real selves can be developed, and then we can begin to grow. Now newly designed for a fresh audience, Why Am I Afraid to Tell You Who I Am? is as relevant as it has been for twenty years. With a proven track record, it continues to speak to the needs and aspirations of people today. It is best included in self help sections of general bookshops, but also has a religious appeal.

Our Beauty in All Shapes and Sizes

Fifty-four portraits of women that are striking, beautiful, and real. The bodies in this book have been shaped by the full sweep of the feminine experience. They belong to 54 women from all over the country, ages 19 to 95, of all sizes and shapes, ethnicities, and life experiences, who were willing to expose their naked physical forms in This Is Who I Am. They are ordinary women only in the sense that none is a professional model. They are in all other ways extraordinary—courageous, curious, thoughtful, speaking unflinchingly about their bodies, then allowing themselves to be photographed to inspire other women to make peace with their physical selves, "to glorify the real beauty of all women." Certainly, the feminine nude form is not new to artists and photographers. But the portraits in This Is Who I Am, taken by award-winning photographer Rosanne Olson, with a steady, unjudgmental eye, speak loudly to the American obsession of feminine perfection—slim hips and full breasts, high cheekbones and tiny waists, taut skin and eternal youth—and even more loudly to the way real women, with real bodies and real lives, look. By turns tender, personal, and moving, this tribute to contemporary womanhood is the perfect gift for mothers to give to daughters, daughters to cousins, cousins to friends.

Oscar-nominated Charlotte Rampling most recently appeared in hit ITV drama Broadchurch, the BBC’s London Spy and HBO’s Dexter, and the feature film 45 Years. Her career has spanned popular entertainment and arthouse cinema, having starred in English, French and Italian films from 1966’s Georgy Girl (opposite Lynn Redgrave), to films with French director François Ozon, including 2003’s Swimming Pool. Having shied away from biographies and autobiographies (“too personal”) Rampling has now written Who I Am (first published in French) a lyrical, and intimate self-portrait via reminiscences. Highly personal, packed with photographs from her personal archive, Rampling recounts her childhood and youth as the daughter of an army officer (who won a gold medal for the 4 x 400 relay in the infamous 1936 Berlin Olympics), and the memories and passions that would inspire her life and later work as an actress. Written in a style that gives a unique insight into her screen persona, it is an idiosyncratic and beguiling insight of one of the most consistently adventurous and interesting actors.

At first shocked, she soon becomes aroused watching the interactions between the Doms and their subs. But she's a professional woman--an accountant--and surely isn't a submissive . . . is she? Master Z hasn't been so attracted to a woman in years. But the little sub who has wandered into his club intrigues him. She's intelligent. Reserved. Conservative. After he discovers her interest in BDSM, he can't resist tying her up and unleashing the passion she hides within. DARK CITADEL After Kari breaks up with her date during Beginner's Night at Club Shadowlands, she's given the option to continue with an experienced dominant. Despite her steamy fantasies about BDSM, the inexperienced schoolteacher plans to simply observe. Yet under the unyielding hands of Master Dan, she not only participates, but gives him everything he asks for. There is nothing she can hide from him. Not her passion...or her love. Still mourning the death of his wife, Master Dan avoids getting involved with women and he never takes a sub twice. But this modest little beginner is such a sweetie, one night is far from enough. As he plumbs her responses, taking her ever deeper into the world of BDSM, the gentle submissive begins to show him how barren his life has become and what a dark citadel he's made of his heart. During their three nights together, the teacher will learn to submit...can she teach the master to love?

Living the Christian life is not easy, especially in today’s culture. To be who and do what God commands, Christians need to recapture the miraculous. Unfortunately, miracles have been left either with cable TV faith healers or tour guides in the Holy Land. That has to change, because it’s by seeing what God does that we discover who He is. And knowing who He is and what He does will change who we are and what we do. Pastor Gregg Matte believes that the seven “I AM” statements and the seven miracles recorded in the Gospel of John can give believers a framework for living God’s will. In I AM Changes Who i Am, readers will explore what Jesus says and does and find out what that means for their walk with Him.

Student Veterans' Stories of War and Coming Home

Because so few Americans have served in the military since 9/11—or even know anyone who has—many look to the media for information about veterans and military service. Popular news outlets, however, traffic in tragedy and often paint those who have fought in Iraq and Afghanistan with one of three broad brushes: as superhuman; as broken, disabled, and traumatized; or as dangerous, ticking time bombs. See Me for Who I Am aims to undermine these stereotypes. It brings together twenty young student veterans working to bridge the media-created gap that divides them from the American people they have fought to protect. With thoughtfulness, humor, and honesty, they relive and relate their worst memories, illustrate shared experiences, explain to us the fulfillment of combat, and show us what going to war really entails. For veterans, these voices will ring familiar. For civilians, the stories open a view into a world few ever see and, in the process, affirm our common humanity.
