7. 50 Jobs in 50 States One Man's Journey of Discovery Across America (Large Print 16pt) - Daniel Seddiqui

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Like lots of college grads, Daniel Seddiqui was having a hard time finding a job. But despite more than forty rejections, he knew opportunities had to exist. So he set out on an extraordinary quest: fifty jobs in fifty states in fifty weeks. And not just any jobs - he chose professions that reflected the culture and economy of each state. Working as everything from a cheesemaker in Wisconsin, a border patrol agent in Arizona, and a meatpacker in Kansas to a lobsterman in Maine, a surfing instructor in Hawaii, and a football coach in Alabama, Daniel chronicles how he adapted to the wildly differing people, cultures, and environments. From one week to the next he had no idea exactly what his duties would be, where he'd be sleeping, what he'd be eating, or how he'd be received. He became a roving news item, appearing on CNN, Fox News, World News Tonight, MSNBC, and the Today show - which was good preparation for his stint as a television weatherman. Tackling challenge after challenge - overcoming anxiety about working four miles underground in a West Virginia coal mine, learning to walk on six - foot stilts (in a full Egyptian king costume) at a Florida amusement park, racing the clock as a pit - crew member at an Indiana racetrack - Daniel completed his journey a changed man. In this book he shares stories about the people he met, reveals the lessons he learned, and explains the five principles that kept him going.

10. A Certain Risk Living Your Faith at the Edge - Paul Richardson

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

In his memoir, A Certain Risk, author Paul Richardson reminds you that the Creator designed you to engage the complexities of your world with creative solutions. Rather than offering a series of how-to steps, Richardson offers you a refreshing vision of what a Spirit-fueled life looks like-a vision that sees Christianity as a fluid, innovative call to love. Many of us lead frenzied lives-but feel we are going nowhere. Every day you may be asking yourself: "How can I become a voice of hope when the problems are so great? How can I envision my circumstances through God's eyes and respond to others with the passions of his heart when the dry details of the day take over? How do I begin to live a deeper, richer faith that unleashes God's transforming work in and through me?" Drawing on stories from his life as a change specialist in the world's largest Muslim country, Richardson explores what causes you to be pinned down under life's fluctuating circumstances, personal apathy, and disappointment, and he helps you seek the Spirit-fueled life that can set you free. You will come away with a deeper awareness of your dreams, a renewed passion for faith in action, and a richer understanding of how God created you to live ... straight from the heart of the Creator

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

'In May 1994, while I was going through pre - selection for the seat of Williamstown, I sat down at my desk at home and I wrote a note. I was thirty - nine years old and in that note I mapped out what I hoped would happen in my life.' By the time he was forty - eight, Steve Bracks had achieved the goal he'd set himself nine years earlier. He was premier of Victoria. In A Premier's State he reflects on his ambition to make a difference, and how he reached his goal. He talks about his early childhood growing up in a conservative but impassioned family that supported the Democratic Labor Party, and about his gradual evolution from left - wing university radical to pragmatic centre - left premier. He reveals for the first time the background to his decision to take the party's leadership from his friend John Brumby in 1999 - then to hand it back to John in 2007 when he sensationally resigned from office. He gives insights into how to run a successful government and how to manage the factions, and talks about everything from the impact of public life on his family, to forming minority government with independents.

18. A Season of Loss, a Lifetime of Forgiveness The Dan Snyder and Dany Heatley Story (Large Print 16pt) - John Manasso

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Dan Snyder narrowly escaped being cut from his junior hockey team for two years in a row. That's hardly the stuff that nhl careers are made of. But Snyder earned his spot on the NHL's Atlanta Thrashers roster through sheer force of will and strength of character, even though scouts thought the odds were against him. Those who knew Snyder describe him as the kind of person others naturally gravitated towards. One of those people was Dany Heatley, college star, All - Star, and marked one of the nhl's next great players. On September 29, 2003, while driving down a treacherous Atlanta road with Snyder, Heatley lost control of his car. Snyder was injured, and died in hospital six days later. The lives of his family, friends, and teammates changed forever, as they searched for meaning and healing. Meanwhile, authorities in Atlanta charged Heatley with vehicular homicide. Snyder's family, however, took a path of forgiveness and reconciliation - a path that is ingrained in the Mennonite tradition from which they hail. While some might lash out against an easy target, the Snyders invited Heatley and his parents into their lives in an effort to make peace with their grief. This paperback edition contains an afterword by the Snyder family.
