Thing About Home
Home is not a place–it’s a feeling.
Casey Black needs an escape. When her picture-perfect vow renewal ceremony ends in her being left at the altar, the former model turned social media influencer has new fame–the kind she never wanted. An embarrassing, viral video has cost her millions of followers, and her seven-year marriage is over. With her personal and business lives in shambles, Casey runs from New York City to South Carolina’s Lowcountry hoping to find long-lost family. Family who can give her more answers about her past than her controlling mom-slash-manager has ever been willing to share.
What Casey doesn’t expect is a postcard-worthy property on a three-hundred-acre farm, history, culture, and a love of sweet tea. She spends her days caring for the land and her nights cooking much needed Southern comfort foods. She also meets Nigel, the handsome farm manager whose friendship has become everything she’s never had. And then there are the secrets her mother can no longer hide.
Through the pages of her great-grandmother’s journals, Casey discovers her roots run deeper than the Lowcountry soil. She learns that she has people. A home. A legacy to uphold. And a great new love story–if only she is brave enough to leave her old life behind.

My Grandfathers Son$15.95Add to cart
Provocative, inspiring, and unflinchingly honest, My Grandfather’s Son is the story of one of America’s most remarkable and controversial leaders, Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas. Thomas was born in rural Georgia on June 23, 1948, into a life marked by poverty and hunger. His parents divorced when Thomas was still a baby, leaving his mother to raise him and his brother and sister on the ten dollars a week she earned as a maid. At age seven, Thomas and his brother were sent to live with his mother’s father, Myers Anderson, and her stepmother in their Savannah home. It was a move that would forever change Thomas’s life. His grandfather, whom he called “Daddy,” was a man with a strict work ethic, trying to raise a family in the years of Jim Crow. Thomas witnessed his grandparents’ steadfastness despite injustices, their hopefulness despite bigotry, and their deep love for their country. His own quiet ambition would propel him to Holy Cross and Yale Law School, and eventually-despite a bitter, highly contested public confirmation-to the highest court in the land. In this candid and deeply moving memoir, Clarence Thomas recounts his astonishing journey for the first time, and pays homage to the man who made it possible. Illustrated with many photos.

The Pharisees called Jesus “a friend of sinners.” He took it as a compliment. Would you?

Special video message for pastors
Video guide for implementing a church-wide program
Six sermon outlines

Ragman : And Other Cries Of Faith (Expanded)$12.99Add to cart
First published in 1984, and now newly revised and expanded, Ragman and Other Cries of Faith helped to establish Wangerin’s reputation as one of the most cutting-edge Christian writers on the market. It presents thirty-four interlocking “stories” in a variety of styles, ranging from gently reflective to incantatory. Together they embody a “story theology” that explores in fresh, powerful ways the meaning of faith, the persons of Christ, the community of faith, and the individual servant of faith. This collection interweaves short fiction, biblical stories, parables, autobiographical essays, prayers, meditations, poetry, drama, fable, and legend. The opening chapter, “Ragman” (still one of Wangerin’s most quoted writings), is a moving parable about Jesus encountered in a most unexpected place—as a rag seller on the streets of a modern city. For this new edition, the author has provided eleven new pieces, making this an all-new, updated definitive edition.
