📒A Forever Family ✍ Rob Scheer
📝A Forever Family Book Synopsis : In the tradition of The Promise of a Pencil and Kisses from Katie comes an inspirational memoir by the founder of Comfort Cases about his turbulent childhood in the foster care system and the countless obstacles and discrimination he endured in adopting his four children. Rob Scheer never thought that he would be living the life he is now. He’s happily married to his partner and love of his life, he’s the father of four beautiful children, and he’s the founder of an organization that makes life better for thousands of children in the foster care system. But life wasn’t always like this. Growing up in an abusive household before his placement in foster care, Rob had all the odds stacked against him. Kicked out of his foster family’s home within weeks after turning eighteen—with a year left of high school to go—he had to resort to sleeping in his car and in public bathrooms. He suffered from drug addiction and battled with depression, never knowing when his next meal would be or where he would sleep at night. But by true perseverance, he was able to find his own path and achieve his wildest dreams. Poignant, gripping and inspiring, Rob’s story provides a glimpse into what it’s like to grow up in the foster care system, and sheds necessary light on the children who are often treated without dignity. Both a timely call to action and a courageous and candid account of life in the foster care system, A Forever Family ultimately leaves you with one message: one person can make a difference.

📒Episodes In A Rich Life ✍ Raymond Wentworth
📝Episodes in a Rich Life Book Synopsis : What's this about 'Episodes in a Rich Life?'" asked my Imaginary Friend. I'm always embarrassed when my IF speaks up, but glad that this time we were-that is, that I was-alone. If I ever admitted to the world my IF exists, some would doubt my sanity. Others would have their opinions confirmed. "I can't remember a time," my IF continued, "when you've had enough in your pocket to talk about being rich." I looked around, saw no one in earshot, and broke my rule against replying to my IF. "There are ways of being rich without having much cash," I explained. "You can have friends, enjoy experiences, learn much about a multitude of things . . . all of that, and more. And you can properly consider yourself rich." "When you put it like that," my IF admitted, "I can see your point. One more thing you mustn't forget." "And what's that?" I wondered. "Maybe I should have put it in my book." "You always have me," said my IF. "This conversation is over," I said. "In fact, it never happened." . . . Not long after I retired, I joined a Journal Writers group of senior citizens. Each week, I had to write (and read to the group) a page or so, telling what had happened to me, either during the week previous or sometime in the past. I have bundled many of these Episodes into more-or-less related groups that I call Chapters, but the reader may call them "Aggregations"-I sincerely hope not "Aggravations." The point is, I have experienced these Episodes and enjoyed most of them, and I hope the Reader enjoys them, too, whether reading straight through the book, or doing random sampling

📒Rut Rot Or Revival ✍ A. W. Tozer
