In this rip roaring adventure and love story – told as a historical novel – Aleksandr Baranov, a charismatic Russian leader, left his family in 1790 to sail to Alaska as the Tsar’s chief manager there. Shipwrecked, he survived a harsh wilderness; motivated Aleuts to help him; married a young Native; and endured massacres from the Tlingit, meddling priests, the Battle of Sitka and a running duel with powerful Tlingit Chief Katlian. He built an empire and sought peace with the Tlingit, helped by his wife and teenage daughter. Alaska is part of the U.S. today, thanks largely to Baranov.
What is a salesperson’s job? If you responded “To sell a product or service,” or any variation of this, then like most salespeople you’re mistaken. A salesperson’s job is not to sell, but to help a customer select the exact product or service that meets their specific needs, wants and desires, regardless of the product or service. Based on 40+ years of successful sales education and field experience, in “Who Stopped the Sale?” professionals are taken a journey starting with the realization that every salesperson has stopped a sale and ending with a mindset that helps customers select and buy.
The Whip is inspired by the true story of a woman, Charlotte “Charley” Parkhurst (1812-1879) who lived most of her extraordinary life as a man in the old west. As a young woman in Rhode Island, she fell in love with a runaway slave and had his child. The destruction of her family drove her west to California, dressed as a man, to track the killer. Charley became a renowned stagecoach driver for Wells Fargo. She killed a famous outlaw, had a secret love affair, and lived with a housekeeper who, unaware of her true sex, fell in love with her. Charley was the first known woman to vote in America in 1868 (as a man). Her grave lies in Watsonville, California.

This first e-book in the Called into Life by the Light series How Jesus Christ Leads Us To The Kingdom Of Heaven begins with reading and pondering the many inspirational Bible verses in both the Old and New Testaments on life and light. We will see how life and light in the Bible are really tied together (lifelight), with The Light, Jesus Christ, being the guide and the sustainer in life’s journey of Spiritual Growth in Christian Living. Union with The Light in the heavenly Jerusalem, the Kingdom of Heaven is the ultimate fulfillment, the goal of every human life.
As Baptism Bible verses attest, relying on divine mercy, we take our first steps into the holiness which leads to inner peace. Our inner light begins to match the will of God. We take a number of other steps like living the way of the beatitudes, being pure of heart, being peacemakers, and loving God and neighbor–all of which give evidence of a real faith in Christ Jesus.

Now just sixteen, he carries both sorrow and survivor's guilt.
