From the Author :

It is through our stories others can identify with pain, joy, hope, success, and triumph. A Tiny Story-N.Taylor told by M. IngramImagine being born prematurely, addicted to a substance, and not expected to live. Nakita Taylor's journey into this world began in a cold, hard, unclean bathtub. It is unimaginable the trauma her tiny body experienced as it readied itself to face a cruel and hostile world. The lethal drug crack cocaine had robbed Nakita's mother of her God given nurturing ability to call for help while delivering her baby. She was all alone in an old abandoned house, crouched in a fetal position, with the bathtub being her only arms of comfort. The enemy's plan was to steal the mother and the baby she was carrying that night. But what the enemy didn't know is that God had another plan for that baby. A Voice in the Dark-G. HaganGary leaped from his bed, grabbing a pair of pants, and hopped across the room and hurriedly pulled them on. He raced to the front door, flung it open, stuck his head out and listened. The most terrifying scream he'd ever heard pierced the night air.He groped wildly, trying to find his phone in the pitch-black room. "911, is this a police, medical or fire emergency?" "I need the police right away. I called you earlier tonight, now he's in the neighbor's house. I can hear her screaming!" "Calm down, sir. I'll dispatch a unit to yourlocation." "Thanks, please tell them to hurry," he pleaded.A Conversation With God-P, RogersThe week Mom died was the Tour de' France and Lance Armstrong was winning. Mom was sitting on the edge of her bed with her yellow "Live Strong" bracelet on cheering aloud for Lance. I believe on some level she thought if he could beat it, so could she. I think Lance represented for Mom the power of the human spirit. That no matter what life throws you and how impossible it seems that the human spirit can overcome through hard work and BELIEVING. Mom lost her fight to cancer on August 16 , 2004 but she never stopped believing. She never stopped living for one moment.A Mother's Wounds, A Child's Anguish, God's Grace-D, SepulvadaI was born on my mother's birthday Sadly, she was a mere child herself, turning just 15 years of age on that day and yet, I was not her first child. I had a sister 11 months older. These statistics would prove devastating to many people in countless ways.My father would leave within a month or two and, although he lived only 20 minutes away, I would not know him until my sister's funeral 17 years later. I would not be able to understand until much later in life the reasons for some of the terrible things that went on behind the doors of our "seemingly" normal middle class house.I Am Still Rising-Dr. I. DeasI was born in New Haven, CT. My mother still lives in my very first home. New Haven is one of the oldest and most prosperous communities in the USA; its educational institutions reflect that age and richness. It was a wonderful place to grow up. My mother owned a hair salon and later became a nurse. My father was a manager at Yale University. He was a culinary graduate. Perhaps I love to cook and eat because he did! He was the strict one in the family. His messages were: "Work hard" and "Don't ask for handouts." Naturally, Education with a capital E was encouraged. Education greased the wheels to get you there. "Education makes it possible."God Likes Me!-M. FuchsThe truth is she was right. What was worse is that she had only hit the tip of the iceberg. I was an arrogant man, extremely selfish with my time and my priorities were out of whack. My going to work at 4:30 a.m. under the guise of doing whatever it took to make the business successful was a farce. I would arrive early in the morning to view pornography on the Internet. In years prior I had viewed pornographic magazines and movies, but for the last four years I had a three-hour a day addiction. It was a bondage that was ruling my life, taking me into work on weekends and farther away from my family. Compared to so many other habits or addictions, it seemed harmless. It was free. No one could look in your eyes or smell your breath and tell that you had been looking at it and it wasn't hurting anyone, right? Boy was I wrong!Some Say Money Doesn't Fall From Trees I Beg to Differ!-K. ScruggsThe year 1992 was truly a year of transition, everything in my life was changing. After 20 years in corporate America, for which I felt I had accomplished and accumulated a good life for me and my family--a beautiful house with a pool secluded in the suburbs, cars, $400Brooks Brothers suits, $250 Italian shoes, $50 Burberry shirts, $45 ties, power lunches and friends, the life that most poor little boys never experience. Here I was living the American dream, without real regard for the God, who had blessed me beyond measure.All of the things that I held as the foundation of my life were dissipating and I was forced to see beyond them and to believe in things that I could not see. It became clear that my life of running from the call of God was done, and the time had come for me to be accountable for beingon the earth.Follow Your Heart But Use Your Head-A. CouryWell, I may as well start at the beginning. I was an ugly baby. How ugly were you? Well, I was so ugly when I was born the doctor slapped my mother. My mother said, "What a treasure." My father said, "Yeah, let's bury it!"As I got older I got wiser, it was easier, my parents would take me on long rides out into the country, but I always found my way back home. Seriously, the one Christmas I really remember was when I got my first two-wheel bicycle; it was a beat up, used bicycle with aflat tire. Oh, but I thought it was GOLD! It was the best Christmas present ever! I loved that bike. It was more than a bike. It was freedom. Can I Motivate You?-Dr. P. OlmsteadHow do you inspire people to seek their own level of perfection? How do you get them to be the best that they can be? Setting a person up for success is so much easier than setting her/im up for failure. Inspire people by letting them know that they ARE capable, that they CAN and WILLachieve. As an educator, I entered the classroom (some with walls and some without) and informed my students that they all had an 'A' grade right then. Individually each one determined if s/he maintained an 'A' or if s/he didn't. This philosophy not only started the course off on a positive note, but allowed each student to determine her/is destiny in the program.Rasselas Revisited-R. RodriguezLife comes from death. From dark years I took an immeasurable treasure of incomparable significance, so prized I know no less than providence intended my trying journey. In Samuel Johnson's Rasselas the story's protagonist deserts an Eden-like paradise and journeys throughWestern thought. He meets the Epicurean, Stoic, and man of science, among others, but finds everywhere suffering, an allegory for the Western experience since the biblical fall. I too journeyed through mental space, beginning in innocence, progressing to a fall and suffering and climaxingwith a deeper awareness of a fallen and suffering world. Impacting the Space I Occupy-M. JohnsonIt happened when I was 14 years old and worked for Mr. Poole. As I was preparing the condiment tray I heard the service bell ring and turned around to a .38 pointed right smack dab in the center of my head. I stood there asking myself, "Is this really happening?"He said, "Give me all your money!" I said "Eddie, you can have this whole store if you want it, just take the gun outta my face!" Time seemed to stand still, then it started moving real slow. The entire moment was surreal. I later realized that God had spared me for a purpose deeper than I ever knew.
