RECALIBRATE

In the delivery room, Esther gazes into her tiny infant's sweet eyes.  How she's dreamed of this day.  At 43, she's finally holding her own child.  But before Esther and her husband realize what's happening, one of the nurses whisks their son away.  That's when they notice the room is not all smile and congratulations.  

Six weeks?  Are you serious?  I've been unconscious that long?  John, 18, squeezes his eyes shut.  "How bad was I hurt?  Give it to me straight."  "You have suffered extensive brain trauma," the doctor tells him, predicting John will never walk again and certainly not return to the Coast Guard.  "We had to remove part of your brain."

Ezekiel grabs his friend Mustaffah, their hearts racing as they run toward his car, desperate to escape the angry mobs rioting in their Nigerian city.  We have to get to Mustaffah's mom before any of us gets killed.  

CHANGING COURSE

Real life is tough to navigate.  Often our pasts haunt us, and our present overwhelms us.  We are desperate to change our life's course if only we had a compass to point us in the right direction.  Meet eight real people with real problems who turned the corner to a better life.  

AS A YOUTH, SCOTT EXPERIENCED AN UNSPEAKABLE TRAUMA that would alter the course of his life.  His underserved shame weighed heavy on his marriage as his wife, Nicole, tried desperately to save him from himself.  Could Nicole steer her marriage in a U-turn, or should she leave her broken husband to preserve her own sanity?

"STOP! STOP!"  BYSTANDERS SHOUTED, pounding on the school bus and waving frantically to the driver as he continued in reverse.  The teenager felt the air press out of her lungs as the bus crushed her into her mother's car, chasing the course of her life forever.  

KATE'S GRANDFATHER MOLESTED her throughout her childhood.  How could mom let this happen?  The memories haunted her into adulthood.  Bitterness festered, and her health careened downhill.  Kate's fight to live was rivaled by her fight to forgive - could she gain victory over either?  

PRODUCTS OF GRACE

Abandonment.  Abuse.  Accidental death.  Addiction.  Anger.  Deception.  Disappointment.  Divorce.  Fatal illness.  Hatred.  Heartbreak.  Injustice.  Murder.  Poverty.  Prison.  Robbery.  Sexual confusion.  Temptation to suicide.  Violence.  

Sound familiar?  Too close to home?  Too much like reality?  It's all too easy to believe that these are the words used to tell the stories of people of today, people who may be your near neighbors in Gig Harbor, Washington - perhaps even your story.  

But where will it end?  Is there any hope, any healing?  Is life an endless round of trouble, with no way out?

This book contains the stories of seven very real people who have experienced all the above troubles and more - and yet have found the reality of what happens when life and faith connect, a reality that has made them Products of Grace.  

And now these same people tell their true life stories in new words, words like:
Acceptance.  Beauty.  Faith.  Forgiveness.  Freedom.  Grace.  Happiness.  Healing.  Hope.  Love.  Miracles.  Poetry.  Recovery.  Release from anger.  Solid ground.  Successful marriage.  Sweet land.  Unconditional love.  

Yes!  It's a very real change.  Come along and see for yourself!
