The Things I Meant To Say

Barrett began writing love poems in his early 20’s. He is a distant relative of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and when introduced to her work became immediately inspired. This book is comprised of poems Barrett has written over the past 40 years. They are both love poems and inspirational poems which he hopes will be enjoyed by readers of all ages. Many of the love poems were dedicated to his first real love, Lynn, and others written to his late wife, Patricia to whom he was married for 37 years. Some of the poetry is lyrical and some prose. His hope is that you will be touched by the words, perhaps warming your heart and those around you, whether remembering past or current loves, friends and family. This book is meant to awaken your passion for life and the emotions that you have deep inside, and even perhaps “the things you meant to say.”

Random Access Memory of a Life Well Spent

 Phil was raised in the rural town of Clovis, CA where he attended elementary, junior high, and high school. He attended California Baptist College in Riverside, CA before returning to Clovis and completing his college degree at Fresno State College. He was finishing his junior year when he had to declare a major. After seeing a lot of Biology students going on field trips in the nearby Sierra Nevada Mountains, he decided a degree in Biology would be right for him. He wanted to teach Life Sciences in high school or become a Park Ranger with the National Park Service (NPS). There were many twists and turns in his career after college. He was hired as an intern in the Kings Canyon Unified School District teaching first fifth grade, then sixth grade. He was instrumental in developing an environmental education program for his sixth graders. He also worked seasonally as a Park Ranger with the NPS for seven summers and also worked weekends at Kings Canyon National Park for two years while teaching full time. After the war in Vietnam, there were so many veterans applying for full time park ranger positions that he was unable to break into the NPS full time. About that same time, the Corps of Engineers (COE) was beginning to hire park rangers and natural resource managers for their many lakes around the country. He was able to spend most of the rest of his career in the field of Resources Management in WA, OR, and ID. Along the way, he took on various teaching assignments with Walla Walla Community College and the University of Idaho. He helped develop and teach the COE’s first enforcement classes nationwide. Phil is retired now and living in Dallas, OR. He decided he wanted to share some of his life experiences with friends, relatives, and others who might be interested in the work he chose for his career.

I Only Walk On Water When It Rains

Dr. Patty is a hunka (adopted family member) of the Lakota-Sioux Rosebud Nation. Being adopted into a Native American tribe is an enormous honor and is done only when a person shows they can be trusted and have gained respect. Her work with the tribal nation includes serving as a member of the Board of Trustees for the Lakota Healing Way Center, a 501(c)-3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping people with trauma, addictions, homelessness, illness, and PTSD to rebalance themselves through indigenous Native American spirituality.Like many people, Dr. Patty came to her life calling early but then took a very long, circuitous path back to it later in her life. A fourth-generation Denver native, Dr. Patty lost her much-loved father at age 10 and confronted some of life’s biggest questions and challenges at a very tender age. Naturally creative, she later obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Art Education and Psychology from Western State College in Gunnison, with the goal of becoming an art teacher. That career led to a short stint as a commercial designer, a role she still fills at Mile High Church. Later, she received a Masters of Art in Psychology from the University of Colorado-Boulder and a second masters degree from Naropa University in Counseling and Thanatology (the study of death). Finally, she was bestowed an honorary doctorate degree from the Centers for Spiritual Living, a global community comprised of more than 400 spiritual communities, teaching chapters, study groups and other ministries in 30 countries. These communities teach a New Thought philosophy that offers spiritual tools to transform personal lives. She currently lives with her husband, Luke, and Newfoundland dog, Maggie Rose, in a happy home on top of a mountain.Dr. Patty Luckenbach is an Associate Minister at Mile High Church, one of the largest single location congregations in the country. The church and Dr. Patty’s work there emphasizes inter-faith engagement, environmental stewardship, and nonviolence and human dignity for all. She is also a certified practitioner and instructor of existential metapsychiatry, having served as a Research Associate at the former New York Institute of Metapsychiatry under the guidance and instruction of the renowned Dr. Thomas Hora, M.D. Furthermore, she has received extensive training from Dr. Alan Wolfelt at the Center for Loss & Life Transition, Stephen Levine, an American poet, author, and teacher best known for his work on death and dying, and Elise Hayes around grief and loss, death and dying, and living with HIV/AIDS.

Lost Without Him

 Carol Scutt is a 72-year-old widow who lives in Lafollette, TN on Norris Lake. This is her first book. She has two children, seven grandchildren and lots of nieces and nephews. She is still grieving the loss of her beloved husband with whom she spent nearly 50 years.

In the summer of 1967, two teenagers from completely opposite kinds of upbringing met in Columbia City, Indiana. They both worked at the local Kroger grocery store. She worked as a cashier, and he worked as a night stocker. She was sixteen, and he was seventeen.

This infatuation grew into a love stronger than the worst storms and more passionate than the words of Shakespeare. The first storm they endured as newlyweds was Paul being drafted and sent to Vietnam for fourteen months. Their journey was one of commitment and determination. Their love for each other and for Christ drew them together during all the difficult times. A time did come when they nearly divorced. How they dealt with the hurt and heartache is an inspiring lesson.

Paul was a brilliant businessman and ended his career as a senior vice president with Kroger. That journey wasn’t without its struggles. He made a vow to Carol in the first year of their marriage that he would see that she have everything she ever dreamed or imagined. He kept that vow even on the last day of his life.

We Survived

Wounded by a painful divorce, life is slowly shifting into mere existence for Bill, a retired teacher in Anchorage, Alaska. Lonely and depressed, he moves into a retirement community to await the inevitable. But it seems that fate has more in store for Bill.

He is convinced that he will never find love again. He is happy to be proven wrong, however, when he meets Gail. 

In the summer of 2012, to celebrate their one-year anniversary, they fly to up to the beautiful, calm, blue waters of Katchemak Bay for a romantic weekend getaway in his small plane. But several hundred miles into the trip, above the unforgiving Canadian wilderness, the plane loses power with no landing strip in sight. Now, Bill and Gail wait for another kind of inevitable.

Battered but alive, they must now fight to survive. In the fierce challenges of wilderness life, they grow even closer. Hour by hour, what was once a comfortable relationship flourishes into something much more meaningful. In the face of terror, their bond grows even tighter. And in the wilderness, they will encounter more dangers than Gail is prepared to expect. In Bill, Gail finds her knight, and in Gail, Bill finds his lady. As beautiful as a fresh spring flower, their love finds a way to blossom in the harshest of environments. In their faith, they never lose hope that God will deliver them safely from their challenges.

The Baby and the Seed

Leland “Bud” Beamer M.D. is a native of Iowa where he attended Cornell College and the University of Iowa (Carver) School of Medicine. After serving his community of Madras, Oregon for 40 years as a surgeon and family physician, he became Chief Medical Officer in a state prison in Madras. His interest in the early childhood period was intensified while working with the adults in incarceration and understanding their early beginnings.

Lord Chief Justice Mansfield

Ernest B. Lowrie engages in a serious rethinking of the causes of the American Revolution, explaining how Lord Mansfields decisions from his elevation to the Court of Kings Bench in 1756 until his retirement in 1788 gave Great Britain the firepower it needed to attempt to tax its colonies.

Lord Mansfields formal education turned on the Scottish legal system, and as a Scottish Law Lord, it was axiomatic in his opinion that the colonials ought to pay taxes to the imperial government.

After the Boston Tea Party, he decisively shaped the Intolerable Acts. When the British Army defeated the Americans in 1776, he was elevated to the rank of Earl of Mansfield. With the utter defeat of the British at Saratoga in 1777, however, events began to change. Soon France entered the contest, but Lord Mansfield never gave up until King George III was forced to sue for peace.

Get a detailed look at a dark horse of the American Revolution who played a critical role in driving the conflict.
