Jack Treglia suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. An unfortunate result of two tours of duty in Vietnam. In an effort to forget, the ex-Marine keeps his Bronze Star tucked away in his underwear drawer—well, he did before the tornado. After one of his Vietnam War flashbacks—the one when he can’t save a small child from enemy fire—he wakes up in a hospital, blind and suffering from partial amnesia. He remembers his wife and children. He just can’t remember what happened to them.
Jack befriends a nurse who resembles his wife. Together they try to discover what happened to his family. She helps him remember things, bizarre things, including the massive Coronary Embolism that killed him. That’s right, dead. But that won’t stop him from finding his family. And yet the revelation of his death is nothing compared to what he learns about his nurse.

“Lily Fields” is a story about a young woman’s journey of faith. Enjoying her job as a special education teacher, Lily Sullivan knows she is blessed with a fulfilling career, a loving family, good friends, and a relationship with God she cherishes at the deepest part of her heart. At the age of twenty-seven, she is happy and content with her life but remains hopeful about what the future may have in store. Marriage and raising children of her own is something she desires, but she has moments of doubt these blessings will ever be on the horizon. Her life as a wallflower seems to be stretched out before her with no end in sight.
In one week, Lily’s life changes dramatically. Suddenly she has three men on her mind who also have their sights set on her. Is the one who makes his intentions clear first the one she should concentrate on, or is her heart yearning more deeply for another? Seeking the plans God has laid out for her, Lily has a difficult time navigating the path, and her life becomes an obstacle course of confusion and heartbreak. Her faith that once seemed carefree and strong becomes burdensome, weak, and something she is tempted to abandon. Is it worth it: this trusting-in-God life she has been raised with and chosen for herself as a woman of faith, conviction, and surrender to Him? Or would she be better off charting her own course, taking matters into her own hands, and finding happiness apart from the Creator and Lover of her soul?

Aquinas’ genius lay in his ability to synthesize vast and disparate sources into intelligible and convincing discourse.
After a thorough investigation of the scholarship of Thomas Aquinas, one might contend that only the intellectually stalwart could fully benefit from knowing this great man of the church; this is perhaps true. Likely, not many “average” Christians would choose Aquinas for their bedtime reading, just as most patients would not care to hear the scientific explanation behind the human genome.
Yet, the implication of that discovery, just like the implications for Aquinas’ groundbreaking approach to Christianity, has changed everything.

“Where is God when it hurts?” ”Is God really good?” ”Did it have to hurt that much?”
Questions like these flow like a volley of arrows when it hurts. And when people are emerging from the most difficult part, they don’t really have answers. But they do have a sense of “God is in charge,” and “I don’t know how, but God is using this for good.”
Suffering exists, and it is unavoidable. But there are positive uses for suffering in our spiritual life, and it waters the soil for spiritual growth.
The works enclosed in this volume, in their different ways, all deal with suffering. They are offered in the prayer that they may be a source of strength and growth for you in the sufferings you face.

This book is about the restoration of God’s original intention for man. Man was designed to live forever. But death, through sin, interrupted that plan. The plan of everlasting life for man has been restored through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and is revealed in the Bible. This book will transform your life! It is not about the resurrection of the dead on ‘the last day’; but about the promise and prospect of living without experiencing physical death. Strange? This seven-chapter book, written from a Christian and biblical standpoint, challenges the traditional beliefs about death and dying by exposing what the Bible really teaches on the subject. There is a difference between what is written in the Bible and what the Bible teaches. This book considers deeply, from the teaching of the Bible, the spiritual root and updated revelation about death. The last word of the Bible on death is that it is an obsolete foe!

Is about The life of Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha
A sample from the book: Outside of her uncle’s lodge, Father de Lamberville was walking nearby. He was a Jesuit priest, and he was making his customary visits to lodges of Mohawk Indians who were too young, too old, or too sick to work in the fields at spring planting. He walked right past the lodge of the Tortoise Chief, for he knew that the Chief did not care for the Blackrobes or the Catholic Faith that they taught.
