The chance seems like it will never come until after the Three-Day War ends. This conflict wreaks devastation on the empire's enormous supply of warriors, and word of Hertfa's weakness quickly spreads among his myriad enemies. Herbance, Nykloneci's father, has become an elder--a position that bears great and awesome responsibilities. Using his newfound influence, Herbance convinces the mighty Gammy-- Hertfa's greatest warrior--to train Nykloneci. Meanwhile, King Hertfa is set with the task of replenishing his defenses against the imminent threat of the dreaded Dark Lords. Soon, this battle begins and the king's warriors are confronted with fear by the forces that have joined under the leadership of the evil Charun. King Hertfa begins to wonder what chance his warriors--particularly the new and inexperienced ones--will have against such overwhelming fear. Can Hertfa's warriors possibly stymie this onslaught? What role, if any, can the young and ambitious Nykloneci play in the face of such a daunting force? Join Nykloneci in his quest to climb the ranks of Herfta's courageous defenders in Nykloneci's Rise to the General of the King's Army.

Two strangers, no-nonsense Michael and high-maintenance Jessica, have an unfortunate incident involving orange juice while boarding a plane. Later, while in midflight, an explosion aboard the plane sends it plummeting down toward the ground and certain death. However, Michael and Jessica don’t die. They awaken in a strange place called Control, where they are met by a kindly old gentleman named Jacob. He informs them that they will shortly be sent off, courtesy of an all-powerful transporter, to a randomly selected Earth-like planet somewhere in the far-off universe. Upon reaching the new planet, the pair nearly die from exposure, hunger, and thirst. They are rescued by a huge hundred-plus-pound pussycat who leads them to shelter, food, and water. The cat, who they name Millie, becomes their constant companion and shares in all the couple’s adventures and misadventures. While the three companions explore the mysterious planet, Michael and Jessica are constantly tormented by the absurdity of their apparent role of Adam and Eve on this uninhabited world. They wonder, Why them? They also wonder if, by some miracle, they could possibly return to Earth. Such a miracle seems extremely far-fetched except that, during his explorations inside the massive mountain that has become their home, computer-savvy Michael discovers what appears to be a gigantic transporter, very similar to the one on Control.

The day we stop hiding is the day we start healing. Running freely after the dreams God has fashioned in our hearts only happens when we learn to face and let go of the things that are holding us back. We all have our reasons for turning off the light within. Past pain, shameful experiences, hurtful words, and disappointment, make us long for certainty and safety. The problem is the protective strategies we create in the dark, wont work in the light. Bringing together personal experience, years of clinical practice, and Gods Word, Josie guides readers in discovering the limiting mindsets and protective strategies that keep our hearts far from healing and our lights hidden. Healing starts with awareness. What we arent aware of we simply cannot heal, and we end up living imprisoned by our own minds. By identifying and exposing the limiting mindsets holding us back, we can begin to rebuild our lives on the truth of how God sees us. Shining Freely gracefully leads us on this journey of self-discovery so that our hearts become free to shine for Christ. Topics include: Identifying Key Hinderances to Healing Self-discovery Emotional Awareness Healing Invisible Scars Habits That Promote Change Discovering the Light Within Hearing Gods Heart A special chapter is devoted to the healing power of rest. All freedom begins with rest and learning to allow, God, the greatest dance partner of all, to lead the way!

She believed them when they told her that they'd kept it from her to protect her, but their deception hurt her and shook her confidence. How could she hope to compete with such a beautiful and sophisticated woman-a woman who'd had the ability to hurt them deeply? Mona's appearance brought back the insecurities Rachel had spent months struggling to hide-the fear that Boone and Chase had only married her because she carried their child. While trying to reassure Rachel that Mona meant nothing to them, they dismissed their ex-girlfriend's persistence as a nuisance, underestimating her determination to get them back. It was a mistake they regretted, one that almost cost Rachel her life. ** A Siren Erotic Romance

For any enquiring mind, whether Freemason or not, this little book sets out to help answer questions – not so much: ‘What does it mean?’ but rather: ‘What can it mean?’, since the journey is concerned not with learning other people’s answers, but in working out answers for yourself. This is a book about what it means to walk the path of a Freemason; to be inspired by its rituals, to live your life by its precepts and to cultivate virtue within yourself.If you are not a Freemason, you may want answers to questions such as the following Why can I not become a Freemason by reading about it in a book?What would initiation do for me? What is the point of secrets in Freemasonry? Why are the square and compasses in Freemasonry such a universal symbol?What are Masonic symbols for? Do they mean anything? Can Freemasonry be as meaningful for me as my religion? By being a Freemason, can I be closer to God? If you are already a Freemason, you may want answers to other, but similar questions: Why are we called Free Masons? If secrets in Freemasonry are not to hide something, what are they for? What does the ritual mean when it talks of avoiding fear and rashness? How can symbols best be used? Can working tools really be used to make me a better person? If so, how? Why is it said that lodges stand on holy ground? How am I to understand light in a symbolic sense?
