Mongoose Bravo: Vietnam: A Time of Reflection Over Events So Long Ago

by Timothy McCullough

This project has taken me a lot longer than anticipated. I would guess that I’ve been at it for more than twenty years. It started as a result of wanting to let the mother of a fallen soldier know what happened to her son, as well as where his death took place. She and I had been in contact over the years, during which she asked quite a few questions; so, I began writing it all down. I may have been better served if I had pushed my memories of Vietnam off into the ditch alongside the road traveled and driven on without looking back. In the long run, I believe it has been therapeutic. Therefore, worth the time I put into writing it all down. We lived, and fought as a unit, covering each other’s backs. Most came home to tell their own stories, many didn’t. ...

A Peculiar Treasure: The Enduring Legacy of Herbert & Loma Armstrong

by Jon W Brisby

A woman's personal conviction to begin keeping the seventh-day Sabbath in 1926 would challenge her husband to begin an intensive study to prove her wrong. That study would spawn a new religious movement under Herbert W. Armstrong. A fledgling group would form in 1934, and an audacious media operation would make the Radio Church of God (later named the Worldwide Church of God) grow by 30% per year over the next 35 years. Proclaiming a unique understanding of the Bible, traditional Christian orthodoxy would be challenged, making that church most peculiar indeed. Internal and external forces would alter Herbert Armstrong's view of his own mission, and especially after Loma's death, doctrinal and administrative turmoil would stagger the church for the rest of his life. After his death in 1986,...

The Days That Don't Disappear

by Garry Crystal

From the author of the novel, Leaving London and the short story collection, All of Us With Our Pointless Worries and Inconsequential Dramas.

How can you ever hope to become a well-adjusted adult when your only role models are violent, bullying teachers?

The Days That Don’t Disappear is a true story set during the 1970s in a Scottish, Catholic primary school.

This is the first-hand tale of four years of violent bullying towards children, not from other children, but from school teachers who were in a position of trust. An honest account of a less than idyllic childhood and a story of growing up and learning what life can really be like if you happen to be unfortunate enough.

BIBLICAL: Coming Back to the United Methodists

by Union Roberts, Carol

This is the life story of a girl who grew up in the 50's, found faith in the 60's, nurtured by evangelical churches but found the teaching about women needing to be submissive in marriage unhelpful. After divorce, she attended a Methodist theological school and served an internship in the Methodist church in England. After being asked to leave her church while undergoing a divorce, she avoided Methodist churches until one day she found herself back and right in the middle of the controversy over homosexuals in ministry. She was forced to make a decision about her own identity theologically (Traditionalist? Centrist? Progressive?) and to ask the underlying question, what does it mean after all, for something to be biblical?...

Recollecting? Contemplating? Tired of sifting out meaningful phrases to highlight through each lengthy page of a book? In a very easy-to-read narrative form, this book shares some downright off-the-record soul-searching moments of true-life twin souls. We usually picture soul mate relationships as happy, fulfilled, romantic eternal love, but soul mates and twin souls have their own share of tribulations upon striving for a happy ending. If we would seize a thought what a soul mate life is behind the curtain, or even behind the laughter, we may wonder how every soul mate couple had survived and “made it”, and what lessons they have gained throughout separation how they have reckoned, “You make me a better person.” With her beloved, Jason, Stella Hart co-authors a forthcoming book, ...

Prescription Drugs Also Kill: How Doctors Nearly Killed Me

“Prescription Drugs Also Kill” is the true story of one woman’s struggle to recover from a 20 year addiction to prescription drugs. Author, D.L. Duran’s addiction began after the birth of her second child in 1970, when unrelenting postpartum insomnia and anxiety prompted her to phone her OB/GYN physician and ask his advice on the matter. Over the telephone, he diagnosed her as depressed, referred her to a psychiatrist, and prescribed valium. Both the OB/GYN doctor and the psychiatrist readily prescribed addictive drugs, without warning Duran of their negative side effects. Her book documents the irresponsibility of her medical care, how indiscriminately doctors prescribed addictive drugs, even though they knew she was the mother of two young children, one a newborn. When her family...

Esther had been hiding in that patch of forest for a year and was out that morning, looking for mushrooms to eat.
