Claire Vincent is a misunderstood and confused girl who has no friends her own age. The kids at school think she's weird, and she'd rather be left alone than have to deal with their rude stares and hurtful comments. Her only friend is her bold and adventurous grandmother Millie, who's traveled the world and done everything from going on safaris to flying planes. Claire wants to be just like her, but that's much harder for her than anyone realizes. She's not courageous enough to even try - and so she remains a loner, burying her nose in books and escaping into the imaginative magical worlds she reads about. But when a new kid, Matt, moves next door, she finds herself slowly drawn into the world of the living, despite her misgivings. Matt would do anything to please her, and she finds herself depending on him for everything - friends, social life, and recognition. But it's a dependence she eventually grows to despise because it just makes her own weakness that much more apparent. She yearns for more - real magic in her life, to sweep her away from the land of the boring. When Claire's father decides to throw her grandmother a surprise seventy-fifth birthday party despite her grandmother's vehement aversion to celebrating birthdays, Claire finds out that a magical life might not be as desirable as she naively believed. An unexpected guest at her grandmother's party - Jack, a handsome boy new to town - seems to know Gran very well. Claire soon discovers her grandmother has been keeping a very big secret - and that secret might just be the perennially mysterious Jack.

“Don’t be afraid. Just give me your everything.” When Jesus told us to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, strength (Mark 12:30), did he mean it one way for men and another way for women? Through heartfelt biblical teaching, Kat Armstrong challenges the way our church culture has limited the terms of Jesus’ command to the perceived strengths of each gender. She dares to ask and explore what faith and life in general would look like if we broke through the barriers holding us back and lived giving Jesus our ALL. In this six-session video Bible study, Kat offers a fresh perspective of encouragement that aligns with Scripture from beginning to end: “Don’t be afraid. Give me your everything.” She urges women to wholeheartedly love the lord beyond our heart and soul, as well as with our mind and strength. If you have ever felt challenged or insecure following your dreams, or in your career, or in your personal pursuit of God, this is your study. Dare to answer his invitation to show up daily, holding nothing back. Designed specifically for busy women with limited time, the No More Holding Back Study Guide includes Scripture reading, video notes, and group discussion questions with simple, short-but-focused personal study and Bible exploration materials for in-between sessions. Sessions include: Why Are You Even Here? Stay in Your Place All Your Heart All Your Soul All Your Mind All Your Strength Designed for use with No More Holding Back Video Study (9780310098980), sold separately.

As one of the fastest bowlers the world has seen, Michael Holding went by the haunting nickname 'Whispering Death', claiming 249 Test wickets. Despite having not laced his bowling boots since 1989, it remains a fitting sobriquet. As a commentator and administrator, Holding has delivered his views on cricket in the same manner that he played the game: he speaks softly with a rich Jamaican rhythm and is calculated in either criticism or compliment. NO HOLDING BACK charts his effortless transition from one of the great players to one of the great pundits. Holding graphically describes his days as a player, looking back at how he tried to deliberately hurt batsmen on the wastelands of Kingston, and his first match for Jamaica when he almost collapsed from exhaustion - after only four overs! There is time, too, to divulge what it was like to tour with the West Indies, and unmissable insights about sharing a dressing room with other legends of the game like Clive Lloyd, Sir Viv Richards and Malcolm Marshall. Holding does not shirk the big issues, as he discusses how the West Indies have slipped following their halcyon days, openly assesses Brian Lara and laments the hypocrisy over the state of the game in the region. The controversy surrounding the Allen Stanford $20m spectacle, the ICC's handling of the abandoned England v Pakistan match, player power, illegal bowling actions and the threat of Twenty20 to the Test game are all subjects which Holding tackles with characteristic knowledge and class.
