Description:

Dont waste your pain, says unlikely missionary Avis Goodhart. She didnt and neither should you.

Despite a background of childhood abuse, dyslexia, and marital infidelity, Avis took her first international mission trip at age fifty. The church, school, and orphanage she later founded in northern Peru, all products of both her pain and her radical obedience to the Lord, have brought thousands of others out of the dust. This compelling story of an ordinary woman who serves God in extraordinary ways will challenge, inspire, and empower you to:

Eliminate excuses from your life
Recognize that in Gods kingdom, availability matters more than ability
Allow your pain to produce not prevent your obedience
Serve the Lord with the same abandon shown by one unlikely missionary

Marti Piepers prayer involvement moved her to assist Brent and Deanna Higgins in telling their sons story in I Would Die for You, which became a young adult bestseller.

Description:

A personal and empowering blueprintfrom one of Americas rising Democratic starsfor outsiders who seek to become the ones in charge

Leadership is hard. Convincing othersand often yourselfthat you possess the answers and are capable of world-affecting change requires confidence, insight, and sheer bravado. Minority Leader is the handbook for outsiders, written with the awareness of the experiences and challenges that hinder anyone who exists beyond the structure of traditional white male powerwomen, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community, and millennials ready to make a difference.

In Minority Leader, Stacey Abrams argues that knowing your own passion is the key to success, regardless of the scale or target. From launching a company, to starting a day care center for homeless teen moms, to running a successful political campaign, finding what you want to fight for is as critical as knowing how to turn thought into action. Stacey uses her experience and hard-won insights to break down how ambition, fear, money, and failure function in leadership, while offering personal stories that illuminate practical strategies.

Stacey includes exercises to help you hone your skills and realize your aspirations. She discusses candidly what she has learned over the course of her impressive career: that differences in race, gender, and class are surmountable. With direction and dedication, being in the minority actually provides unique and vital strength, which we can employ to rise to the top and make real change.

HERB BROOKS 2-BOOKS-IN-ONE MOTIVATIONAL BIOGRAPHY: AMERICAS COACH & REMEMBERING HERBIE
This special edition combo E-Book features both of Ross Bernsteins best-selling books about legendary coach Herb Brooks: Americas Coach and Remembering Herbie." A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this e-book proudly benefits the Herb Brooks Foundation, of which Ross Bernstein currently serves as the president of the board of directors. Thank you for your support!

Americas Coach: Life Lessons & Wisdom for Gold Medal Success; A Biographical Journey of the Late Hockey Icon Herb Brooks (Forewords by Jim Craig and Mike Eruzione)
The inspirational story of legendary coach Herb Brooks comes to life in the pages of Americas Coach, a heart-warming motivational biography that celebrates the legacy of a true American hero. As the architect of the fabled 1980 U.S. Olympic Hockey Miracle on Ice, Brooks showed the world that through hard work, commitment and dedication, dreams really can come true. It doesnt matter if you know the difference between a blue line and a clothes line, Brooks unorthodox ideologies and philosophies on team-building, leadership and motivation can be applied to the real world just as easily as they can to the business world. Follow along as Brooks amazing life is chronicled from the frozen ponds of St. Pauls east side, to the bright lights of New York City, and everywhere in between. Woven throughout this colorful tapestry are anecdotes, quotes, funny stories, and nuggets of wisdom from Brooks himself, which provide a unique insight into the secrets of his success. Best-selling sports author Ross Bernstein, who had actually been working with Brooks on writing a series of motivational books at the time of his tragic passing in 2003, honors the legacy of his late friend and mentor by challenging you to achieve heights you never dreamed possible. And maybe, just maybe, even inspire you to create your own miracles.

Remembering Herbie: Celebrating the Life and Times of Hockey Legend Herb Brooks (Forewords by Lou Nanne and Glen Sonmor)
Remembering Herbie is a tribute to a man whose name is synonymous with the sport of hockey. Brooks, who died tragically in an automobile accident in August of 2003, did so much for so many in his 66 years here on this earth, and will dearly be missed. Celebrating Brooks life is local author Ross Bernstein, who had actually been working with the hockey legend on writing a series of motivational/self help books at the time of his passing. Wanting to honor the legacy of his friend and mentor, Bernstein decided instead to turn the project into a living memorial. The result is a wonderful new book which not only chronicles the accomplishments and achievements of a man who touched literally millions of lives throughout this world, but also a heartfelt story of an incredible person as told through the eyes of those who knew him best. Nearly 100 people from all spectrums of Herbie's life were interviewed for the book, including former teammates of his from St. Paul Johnson High School, the University of Minnesota and from various U.S. Olympic and National Teams. Bernstein spoke to former players of his from the Gophers, the 1980 and 2002 Olympic Teams, St. Cloud State Huskies, New York Rangers, Minnesota North Stars, New Jersey Devils and Pittsburgh Penguins. Then, in addition to talking to friends, neighbors, acquaintances and business colleagues, Bernstein was even able to include his wife, Patti, and children, Danny and Kelly. It is a venerable who's-who of hockey and the finished product will simply blow you away. While some people opened up and poured out their emotions on what Herbie meant to them, others shared heartwarming or hilarious stories. Some laughed, some cried but they all remembered Herbie. One of our nation's most charismatic and innovative coaches, Herb Brooks was a true American hero.
