13. 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.

18. 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

20. A Girl Called Dusty An Intimate Portrait of Dusty Springfield (Large Print 16pt) - Sharon Davis

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

Dusty Springfield is a pop music legend. Goddess of the sixties, reluctant recluse of the seventies, enigmatic icon of the eighties and nineties, she attracted a passionate following that has remained loyal to this day. She crossed the line into soul music, her first love, but never turned her back on pop music. A perfectionist in her work, she was a shy, awkward girl off stage. Misunderstood and misquoted, that was Miss Springfield. She had a lifestyle to envy, was the original 'IT' girl and achieved, many believed, the height of decadence. But who really knew her? Who was the real lady behind the black mascara and backcombed hair? This is the story that she never had the chance to tell herself because, nearly two years after her first battle with breast cancer, the disease returned to take her life in 1999.When the end finally came, the music business descended into mourning, tributes flooded in from all over the world, ''The Daily Telegraph'' front page announced 'Dusty Springfield dies on day she was to get OBE' and her Majesty The Queen was reported to be 'deeply saddened'. Dusty Springfield was the very heart and soul of British music. Pet Shop Boy Neil Tennant, who was responsible for her return to chart success in 1987, believed that 'she was the very essence of fabness'.
