I Will Love You Forever: A True Story about Finding Life, Hope & Healing While Caring for Hospice Babies Kindle Edition by Cori Salchert

A baby girl was born without a right or left hemisphere of her brain. Doctors said she was essentially in a vegetative state, unable to see or hear—that there was no hope for her. Relinquished under the state’s Safe Haven Law, this two-week-old unnamed baby girl found her way to Cori and Mark Salchert’s home. Despite the infant’s grim medical diagnosis, Cori knew she couldn’t allow this beautiful baby girl to spend her few days on earth alone and unloved. Cori took the baby girl home and named her Emmalynn.

I Will Love You Forever reveals one woman’s decades-long quest to find healing and redemption after the accidental death of her sister as a child. God has used hospice babies—those left to live and die without family to care for them—to mend Cori’s broken heart. Bringing these fragile hospice babies into their home, Cori and her family have promised to hold them briefly, until their last breath on this side of heaven, but to love them forever and always. The loving actions of Cori and her family show that we can do all things through Christ who gives us strength.

Cori’s poignant story will strengthen your faith. . . It will touch your heart.

The Last Librarian (The Justar Journal Book 1) Kindle Edition by Brandt Legg

Never let them catch you reading.
Eighty years from now there is no war, no hunger, no pollution.
The government decides to close the last remaining library still housing physical books.
The contents will be burned. Almost no one notices. Almost no one cares.

In the year 2098, the world is secure and Earth’s 2.9 billion people are healthy and happy. After overcoming a series of calamities in the first half of the century, human advancements birthed a utopian society. When the government announces it will shut down the last library and destroy the books, it hardly seems important. But in addition to the dusty volumes, the library holds many secrets. Unless an unlikely trio can save the books, humanity will lose more than just what is printed on those antique pages.

With a single government ruling the entire planet, using one currency and one language, the population is unified and enjoying the prosperity that comes with more than seven decades of peace. Free healthcare for all, and guaranteed employment, make the future a dream. But this future is only safe if the AOI can hide the past.

The impossible task of rescuing the books, discovering their secrets, and unraveling the paradox, is up to an angry author, a brazen revolutionary and the last librarian. When everything is perfect, the only thing left to fear is the truth.

Rooms: a novel Kindle Edition by James L. Rubart

It was just a letter. Cryptic, yes absolutely. But Seattle software tycoon Micah Taylor can’t get it out of his mind—the claim that a home was built for him by a great uncle he never knew, on the Oregon coast. In Cannon Beach. The one place he loves. The one place he never wants to see again.

Micah heads to Cannon Beach to sell the house and keep his past buried, but the nine thousand square-foot home instantly feels like it’s part of him.

Then he meets Sarah Sabin at the local ice cream shop … maybe Cannon Beach can be the perfect weekend getaway.

But strange things start happening in the house. Things Micah can’t explain. Things he can barely believe. All the locals will say is the house is “spiritual.” Unsettling since Micah’s faith slipped away like the tide years ago.

And then he discovers the shocking truth: the home isn’t just spiritual, it’s a physical manifestation of his soul.
