Summary

"Stars in Our Eyes" is a fresh and savory story collection. Fiction can't compare to this kind of truth. You'll find yourself in Rome, Tribeca, Baja, Hollywood, jail, Camelot, Kansas, and the hospital. You'll do plenty of star-gazing, follow some dreams and watch others crumble. The subject matter ranges from fabulous high heels to movie auditions to lousy tenants to the guy at the airport—all soulful but light enough to keep you afloat. These twenty tales are an unusual weave of casual reminiscence and poignant reflection. But they oddly adhere to a theme—spirits, coincidence, dreams, and the tough truths we’d rather run from. You'll be curled up with this book right through the last story.

    Hero • Martyr • PoetThe                 inspiring story of a remarkable life cut short.              
    “I don’t think Hannah wanted                 to die for the sake of having her memory exalted in history or                 to prove herself equal to a romantic image she conceived for                 herself. Her purpose wasn’t to die. She died for her                 life’s purpose.” 
    —U.S. Senator John McCain, in Why Courage Matters             
    Hannah Senesh, poet and Israel’s                 national heroine, has come to be seen as a symbol of Jewish                 heroism. Safe in Palestine during World War II, she volunteered                 for a mission to help rescue fellow Jews in her native Hungary.                 She was captured by the Nazis, endured imprisonment and                 torture, and was finally executed at the age of twenty-three.  
    Like Anne Frank, she kept a diary from the                 time she was thirteen. This new edition brings together not                 only the widely read and cherished diary, but many of                 Hannah’s poems and letters, memoirs written by                 Hannah’s mother, accounts by parachutists who accompanied                 Hannah on her fateful mission, and insightful material not                 previously published in English.  
    Described by a fellow parachutist as a                 “spiritual girl guided almost by mysticism,”                 Hannah’s life has something of value to teach everyone.                 Now the subject of a feature-length documentary, Blessed Is the                 Match: The Life and Death of Hannah Senesh, Hannah’s                 words and actions will inspire people from each generation to                 follow their own inner voices, just as she followed hers.

    What remains when a near-perfect house of bricks comes tumbling down? 
     
    MEET RENATA GUSTAFSON 
    Renata Gustafson Dixon’s life is going exactly the way she wants it. Almost. A wonderful husband, four boys who fill her life with mostly joy and sometimes a little heartache now and then. She and John are giving things one last shot for the icing on the cake; a little girl with copper curls like John’s and cupid bow lips like Renata’s. Then Juliette, the oldest of the four Gustafson sisters, opens up a can of worms labeled ‘Angela Clinton’ at a G-FOURce meeting. Things are said and accusations made that can’t be taken back, sending Renata’s carefully-constructed world spinning out beyond her control. Renata must learn to set aside her own will and lean on the strength of those who love her before she loses all hope for the future. 
     
    Then there’s Angela Clinton, the senior class darling who drove her cherry black 1970 el Camino into the side of their parents’ car on the night of Juliette’s high school graduation. Angela’s prison sentence is winding down; soon she’ll be eligible for parole and moving back to town. Will the G-FOURce be strong enough to hold them together as they step into the eye of the storm that’s been brewing for the last fifteen years? Will they finally be able to let go of the past and embrace the future, no matter what it holds? 
     
    Note: The Gustafson Girls series is Christian Women's Fiction with strong elements of Romance.

    The Wish List is a quirky little gift book that sounds an irresistible call to get out there and start living. In the same chunky format as the authorfs bestselling 14,000 Things to Be Happy About, The Wish List presents a compulsively readable list of unexpected goals. There are wishes large--retrace Odysseus' route around the Mediterranean--and wishes small--find a genuine arrowhead. There are artistic wishes--write a sonnet. Athletic wishes--learn to box. Practical wishes--master the rudiments of plumbing. Whimsical wishes--become a taster at Ben & Jerry's. And fantasy wishes--live in a Venetian palazzo. The Wish List is meant to plant seeds, jog us out of complacency, and articulate unspoken desires.63,000 copies in print.

    	"Real guidance and techniques that work. I've experienced several miracles already!" - Elizabeth C
     
    
    	"Kelly feels like a dear friend walking with you along the path and showing you how to create your very own miracles. :)" - Claire D
     
    
    	From The Author:
     
    
    	"I want you to know that miracles happen every single moment of every single day. Big miracles, small miracles, and everything in between. Honestly, they aren't as rare as you may think they are. And you know what? You can experience miracles in your own daily life!
     
    
    	As a spiritual being in a human body nothing "out of the ordinary" is beyond your reach. We've only become accustomed to thinking that miracles are totally out of the realm of common experience, but why deprive yourself of something that should be completely natural? A life filled with miracles is one of incredible happiness and being in alignment with the Universe."
