The Unspoken Language of Fans & Flowers
Author: Linda J. Hawkins

Hardback, 8.5 x 8.5"; 72 pgs., $19.99




  In this charming and informative book the reader catches a glimpse into a past era when a lady's fan was employed to send messages of enticement, love, rejection, and more, without uttering a word. Flowers also imparted silent meaning to their recipients as well as how and when they were given. Imagine a wedding bouquet with flowers selected according to their meanings-a very personal tribute to the bride. The author has included an excellent selection of poems and quotes with a floral theme and a list of flowers that may be eaten.
Roses being perhaps the most popular of flower, they have their own chapter, and recipes for delicacies like Rose Petal Jam and Strawberry Cake with Creamy Rose Frosting.

  An array of other recipes will leave readers with mouth-watering choices, from soups to muffins and cakes, among others.
  Being a woman is a blessing-and a challenge. Juggling all those roles-daughter, mother, sister, friend, colleague, wife, and more-isn't easy, but with God's grace it's possible.
  Mrs. Hawkins wears many hats-one is found in this book- a way to relax, laugh, and provide enjoyment for all ages-loving the child within.
Her kindly advice is to slow down and "smell the roses" in this busy world.

   Raised in West Virginia’s humble coal mining community, Gerald Morris now lives in Washington D.C. and is highly successful in all of the areas that matter. Education. Career. And marriage. Wholeheartedly in love with his wife Eleanor-a revered attorney with enticing good looks and a magnetic personality-Gerald couldn’t be happier. Then a crisis occurs and he discovers Eleanor’s darkest secrets, ones so troubling they threaten to change everything he’s ever believed.
   When Eleanor’s health crashes and she is forced to withstand a heart transplant, Gerald finds and begins reading her personal journal. Re-living their life together through Eleanor’s shocking revelations propels Gerald onto an impossibly challenging spiritual journey that no good man as faithful as he should ever have to imagine.

She speaks of her mam and pap and younger brother, Liam, with a shine in her old eyes. Nelly tells of selling eggs, to Mr. Zill Whitney, a storeowner, and also a grand story-teller and family friend. He, along with neighbors and friends, could always be counted upon to lay a bit of lore in her ear.
   She finds friends in Onora, the fairy who visits her from the time to time, and in the sometimes ill-tempered leprechaun of Jasper Hollow, whose true identity surprises her when she needs him most. Nelly weaves tales of family and friends, of hospitatlity and happiness, and of deprivation and death into her accounts of fairies and leprechauns, and of Old Jack.

My friends and I chuckle when we see how popular the shabby look has become. Honey, we have been doing it that way for years, not just because we liked the comfortable look, but because we needed the affordable look! It was called hand-me-downs and make-do's and, trust me, back then it wasn't so popular. That warm feeling we get when we see something Grandma once used, or that old leather chair that Gramps used to sit in gives us a sense of roots. Now, when families are scattered the vintage look helps us remember where we came from and where home is.

If a Man Dies, Shall He Live Again?

By: Wayne G. Anthony

Hard Cover; 8.5" x 11"; 136 pgs., 


The book is a companion to a painting, which was inspired by a meditation on Revelation 22, wherein is described the Tree of Life. 

Originally developed as a source of hope for the dying, the painting and accompanying interpretation took on a universal application, since all individuals will eventually pass through the Valley of the Shadow of Death. Those who embrace the Gift of Eternal Life offered by our God will look forward to passing out of the Valley, to be raised imperishable to enter God's presence in the Celestial City for all eternity.
