Simmie’s magical delight in all things transports us through the Depression and war years to childhood summer visits to Hopkinsville, Kentucky in her relatives’ Gone With the Wind-style southern mansion, an adventure in the lush beauty of Brazil, and to Scotland while writing her first non-fiction book, The Secret Lives of Sgt.

She describes the burgeoning Saskatchewan writing scene as “electric” as she enters an exciting community of like-minded writers and poets, a hotbed of creativity and inspiration that is the impetus of her finest writing and the culmination of an astonishing life story.

Never imagined this is how God was going to capture my heart but he did and so the journey begun. This provided insight on how God healed my broken heart as he mended and repaired my being. At first it felt like I went in for an open heart surgery and I was not on any medication so every single thing that was touched on I really felt it. As painful as some of the things done to me in the past felt, I came to understand that was the reason why my Lord was there so I chose to allow Him into my life for healing to begin. It was in Him to give and so a new heart was provided for me to be able to live pain free. As I accepted the gift I was given I felt the heart beat like never before. A tear drop rolled down my cheek and I knew I was transformed. I came to find out it was new life in me. I was coming out a new person, a new being who was no longer conformed to the world but renewed, enlightened & enriched. I woke up and realized I was no longer sleeping beauty as I got the awakening. To me that was healing from the house of heaven. I was now free from heartache, no longer day dreaming but living the dream. The documentary touches on life experiences and showcases a woman's journey as she worked to free herself from oppression rebuilding her life to make it out of the wilderness alive. It turned out to be a journey of a lifetime.
After many years of searching, John Houston found his way home—his true home. Now, he wants to help you do the same. John Houston has spent the past sixteen years building for others what he didn’t always have for himself growing up: a family home. Today, John is one of the premier custom home builders in Texas. Throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area, you see signs proudly presenting “John Houston Custom Homes” that paint a picture of the kind of home life John would have done anything to have as a child. From a young age, home was not a place where John wanted to be. After his parents divorced and his mother moved out, his father remarried and moved in with his new family. John and his older brother struggled to adjust and began living by themselves with little to no adult supervision at the ages of 11 and 15. They helped support themselves financially by working long hours running a lawncare business before and after school. The years that followed were challenging but also marked by God’s protection, even when John didn’t realize it, as he overcame hardships that could have permanently derailed his life. He met and married the woman of his dreams, completed his education and became a respected and successful business owner. And he isn’t confused for one second about who’s ultimately responsible for his success: God. In Finding My Way Home, John Houston reflects on a life of trials, hardships, and painful mistakes through the lens of gratitude for God’s enduring faithfulness. He explains, “God created a story with my life that puts a spotlight on His mercy and grace—a story of my anger and His forgiveness; of the broken family I grew up in and His restoration; of my demanding ‘leadership’ as a husband and father and His model for me to lead with love.”
We may not always know where God is leading us, and like the prodigal son, we can often be led astray. So how do we find our way back? When Nick Lyerly received his call to the ministry, he was already settled with a family and a promising career. But even though answering the call would bring insurmountable challenges, he could not deny his true purpose. However, the road to Nicks dream of becoming a Methodist minister would be paved with hardship. In Finding My Way Home, author and pastor Nick Lyerly shares his story of overcoming in the face of struggle, hardship, and disappointment. During his early years, Nicks family was struck by tragedy, and he became a rebellious youth, acting out in ways that would constantly haunt him. In spite of this, Nick grew to be devout Christian who would hear the call from God. Nicks faith and marriage would be put to the test while he attended seminary for four years away from his wife and son, but he remained steadfast. Yet even as he fulfils this call and ministers his own church, an unforeseen event would threaten his career before it had even begun. Was this part of Gods plan? Even though our lives may not always turn out the way we plan, God can provide us with peace and joy through all the soul-searching, frustration, and indecision. Join Nick on his remarkable journey of self-discovery and redemption as he finds his way back home to God.

In a deeply heartfelt way, Jerry Jampolsky and Diane Cirincione share stories of their spiritual journey, detours they’ve taken, and people who have impacted them along their life trail. Using the Hawaiian tradition of "talking story," Jerry and Diane demonstrate the daily application of spiritual principles and practical spirituality. Individually and together, they weave their journey for us as it continues to evolve from the influences around them. They inspire us to embrace and share our own stories of peaks and valleys that make up our journeys. The authors’ honest and vulnerable style of communicating continues to reveal their life purposes in the choices they make and the lessons they’ve learned. "Each day still provides challenges and circumstances that call to those parts of us that want to judge others or ourselves," they write. "What is different now is that we more quickly recognize when we’re lost and the choice we have to return to the path of unconditional love. Once we remember that our purpose is service and helping others, as well as letting go of our judgments and grievances by practicing forgiveness, the path is easier, the direction clearer, and the destination of peace achievable."
