When Judith Briles’ nineteen-year-old son was accidentally drowned in an accident, she never dreamed that her terrible loss would introduce her to the four most valuable gifts she would ever receive.

---My Life Became 50 Shades of Purple!---

Does your life sometimes feel that it’s too long, too hard and not fair? It did for Judith Briles.

As a multi-award-winning author, her personal journey has been littered with NOES. Two of her children have died; she survived a life-threatening illness—leaving her paralyzed several months; survived a divorce that the tabloids would have relished; overcame cancer; and lost everything she had built when a partner embezzled over a million dollars leaving her without any assets but family, friends … and herself.

Broke and broken, she had to start over … one step, one breath, one heartbeat at a time. Within When God Says NO, she reminds YOU that you are not alone when bad times surface. They will … they do.

If you have experienced hurt, betrayal, fear, failure, critical illness, tragedy, or loss of a loved one and asked or thought: “Why?” or lamented, “If only …” or “Why did this happen to me … to us?” When God Says NO is written for you.

Despite the numerous setbacks in her life, or rather, because of them, Judith Briles found the tools to help her overcome any obstacle. Resilience became part of her DNA.

Get ready to embrace the joy of living, even when tragedy is in your midst. When God Says NO will change how you think; how you act; and your life.

It's been twelve years since Lottie Luce ran away to Indiana, three weeks before her classes were to begin at IU, to avoid a confrontation with her best friend, and secret love, Nick Greyson. On the night she'd believed he was going to tell her that he wanted her for more than a friend, Lottie caught Nick in a compromising position with her long-time nemesis, Ashley Marshall, and the hurt and humiliation were more than she could bear.  Now a product of personal reinvention, Charlotte Luce is the youngest, and first female market president of Olde Florida Bank, and her life is nearly perfect. That is until Nick comes home to Anna Maria Island, hoping to save his father from financial ruin, and Charlotte's carefully created world stands still.  Lottie Loser vacillates between the present, and the memories of the young girl who thought she had found love, lost it, and is now forced to examine the decisions she made, as well as the chemistry she and Nick still share.

Currently playing: Dan Corner speaking about “Is This the Mary of the Bible?”

The evidence regarding this salvation issue is examined by a former pre- and post-Vatican Council II Catholic. In this easy-to-read, documented and Scripture-indexed volume you will be exposed to the present-day official teachings of Catholicism on Mary, which parallel what it has been declaring for hundreds of years through various past popes, cardinals, Catholic saints and theologians to the greatest Marian apparitions that have ever occurred. The Mary of Catholicism is so deeply interwoven throughout the whole of Roman Catholicism that it is impossible to logically reject it and still have a trustworthy religious system left to aid one with spiritual guidance. In this publication you will be presented with compelling evidence contrasting the Mary of Catholicism to the Mary of the Bible.

When John finds himself entangled with a cold-blooded biker gang, an ex-cop with a fuzzy past, and the drug-addicted son of the dead man, he struggles to make sense of it all.

Currently playing: Jerry Farquhar speaking about “In the Sky - A Retired Captain looks back over fifty-nine years”

The airline world has changed dramatically in the fifty-six years since I entered it. Some changes are for the better, but some are not so good. This book paints a picture of the airline world through my career. I have spent 26,000 hours at the controls of different aircraft. Many pilots who have flown the airlines will have had similar experiences. I make no attempt to be exclusive or comprehensive, but rather to offer a flavor of what this world was like. Most names here are true. Some have been changed or omitted to preserve the sensitivities of those involved. In a few cases, I must plead Winston Churchill's excuse, "that a gentleman never insults someone by accident."
