The Awakening of HK Derryberry is the inspiring story of how one man was willing to step out of his upper middle-class world into the life of a young, disabled boy with a dismal future. Little did Jim Bradford know the transformational potential of that friendship—for HK and himself. HK Derryberry came into the world with the odds stacked heavily against him. He was taken from his unmarried mother’s womb three months prematurely when she was killed in a car wreck. After ninety-six days of seesawing between life and death, HK’s grandmother took him home. One Saturday morning Jim Bradford, a successful businessman in his mid-fifties, happens into Mrs. Winner’s Chicken and Biscuits and sees a nine-year-old’s head pressed down against a black plastic boom box with a crooked antenna and three strips of silver duct tape stretched across the battery cover. He can’t help but notice the long, white plastic braces on each of the child’s legs. Mr. Bradford learns that HK’s grandmother is forced to bring him to the fast-food restaurant where she works, leaving him to sit alone all day at a small table, with only his boom box for company. On subsequent Saturdays Jim feels drawn back to the restaurant to meet with HK and begins spending every weekend with him. Eventually it becomes apparent that buried beneath HK’s severe disabilities is one spectacular ability. He is diagnosed with Highly Superior Autobiographical Memory (HSAM), which involves superlative powers of recollection that enable him to remember everything that has happened to him since the age of three. Less than one hundred people have been diagnosed with HSAM, but none of them have the physical disabilities of HK Derryberry.

Let the Lessons of the Past Pave the Way to a Better Future We've all thought about it at some point: What if I could go back in time and do it all over again? If there were a way, we each have decisions we would change, regrets we would erase, and mistakes we would undo. If I Could Do It All Over Again explores the concept of a "do-over" through insightful interviews with more than two dozen respected Christian leaders, including Tim Keller, Anne Graham Lotz, Michael W. Smith, Joni Eareckson Tada, and Ravi Zacharias. Like an intimate conversation over a cup of coffee, these leaders transparently share stories of their struggles, triumphs, and failures through the lens of God's grace and redemption. While none of us will get a do-over, you can find biblical encouragement through the stories of others. In this candid and contemplative book, author Jon Gauger asks the hard questions and reveals answers sure to leave you filled with hope, courage, and freedom.

Renoun leadership consultant, Samuel R. Chand details the account of the construction of the Panama Canal, and draws parallels between it and successful leadership methodology. “More passion isn’t the answer, and bigger dreams aren’t always the solution. Every leader is asking two questions: How can we grow? How can we grow faster? The only way organizations can grow bigger and move faster is by accelerating the excellence of their systems and structures.” —from Bigger Faster Leadership: Lessons from the Builders of the Panama Canal An epiphany during a visit to the Panama Canal led Sam Chand, one of the country’s most respected voices on ministry and marketplace leadership, to bold new insights on the life cycle of business or church organizations. Simply: The size and speed of an organization are controlled by its systems and structures.

In 2001, The Voice of the Heart began a steady journey into the lives of those looking for more. Since its initial release, The Voice of the Heart has been handed one friend to another and has helped thousands of people begin to speak the truth of their story and to live more fully from the heart. Chip Dodd invites us to begin to know our hearts so that we better know ourselves and can live fully in relationship with others and, ultimately, with God. The journey begins with discovering the gift of The Eight FeelingsTM. We have eight feelings that allow us to live fully in a tragic place–hurt, lonely, sad, anger, fear, shame, guilt, and glad. By listening to these eight God-given tools, we can be who we are made to be, so we can do what we are made to do. "Chip Dodd passionately and wisely invites us to the spiritual discipline of listening to our hearts and to the call of God that echoes in every emotion." –Dan Allender, Professor of Counseling Psychology at The Seattle School, Author of The Wounded Heart, To Be Told, and Leading With a Limp. "The Bible tells us that the heart 'is the wellspring of life.' In this thoughtful book, Chip Dodd [reveals] how our spiritual heart functions and how we can discover more of the life Christ offers. I’m confident that many will find his insights helpful and even life-changing." –Franklin Graham, President, Samaritan’s Purse and Christian Evangelist.

I learned from my family that most things could be achieved – the challenge was finding a way. Blind from birth, Graeme Innes was blessed. Blessed because he had a family who refused to view his blindness as a handicap and who instilled in him a belief in his own abilities. Blessed because he had the determination to persevere when obstacles were put in his way. And now, after a long and successful career – from lawyer to company director to Human Rights Commissioner – he has written his story. Finding a Way shares his memories of love and support, of challenges and failures, and of overcoming the discrimination so many people with disabilities face. He writes of the importance of family, the value of courage and the unique experience of a life without one sense but with heightened awareness of the others. Alongside his life story, Innes shares ideas on advocacy for people with disabilities and outlines what remains to be done to fully include people with disabilities in Australian society.
