Don't we all wish we had a road map to keep us on the right track in life? We need certain cornerstones, or pillars in life to guide and direct us along our journey. In this book you will find those guideposts as described by a native Oklahoman, Tony Smith, who has been through his share of storms as well as blue skies. The stories are joyful, tearful, humorous, and thought provoking. Along the way you will also pick up some practical tips and tricks for improving your life to keep you going in the right direction. You see it's not about how much money we make along the way - or what size house we have, the car we drive, the clothes we wear, the country clubs we belong to or how many degrees, or initials we have listed behind our name that really matter. It's about leaving something behind like my grandmother did that goes on forever after you're gone from this earth. For after all, we're just passing through. It's about changing lives and hearts along the road we travel. It's about making a difference in the lives of others. Life is the sum total of moments, and how we choose to use them is really up to us! In the end we all make up our minds to do exactly what we want to do with our time. I hope you enjoy Oklahoma Ride and that it helps you in some meaningful way in your own life!

Travels With Epicurus

Travels with Epicurus: A Journey to a Greek Island in Search of an Authentic Old Age is a humorous, uplifting meditation on finding the pleasures of old age, by the New York Times bestselling co-author of Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar.

When philosopher, jokester and septuagenarian Daniel Klein goes to the dentist for a regular check-up, he is informed that he needs a section of his lower teeth removed and replaced with either a denture plate or implants. The implants would require frequent trips to the dentist over the course of a year, a lot of money and a lot of pain. The denture plate on the other hand would leave Klein with the unmistakable clunky smile of an old man. 

Though Klein initially opts for the implants he soon questions his decision. Is it better to a spend a precious year trying to extend the prime of his life, or to live an authentic old age, toothless grin and all?

Klein decided the answer lay in a place where people seemed to know the secret to a long, happy and healthy life—Greece. He travels there with a library of his favourite philosophers and observes other septuagenarians and octogenarians, and contemplates his own life, particularly seeking out wisdom from renowned hedonist Epicurus.

From that journey comes a sincere and humorous book on ageing and an Epicurean way of living.

Daniel Klein is the author, with Thomas Cathcart, of the international bestseller Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar. A graduate of Harvard, in philosophy, he is the co-author of twenty-five other books. He lives in western Massachusetts with his wife, Freke Vuijst.


A Study Guide For Joy Of The Gospel By Pope Francis

RRP $12.99

Pope Francis issued an Apostolic Exhortation in November 2013 to all the Catholics in the world. He urged Catholics and other Christians to share the good news by tending to the wounds of all people, especially the poor and marginalized, in a caring manner. The Catholic Church needs to be an instrument of change in the world, not self-preservation, he wrote. He calls for decentralization of authority and control. The title of the letter is "Joy of the Gospel." This book quotes various parts of the letter and includes 34 sets of questions for reflection. It can be used in many ways: 1) Individual reading and reflection to become more knowledgeable of the Catholic Church and staying in tune with current papal thinking. . 2) Day of retreat for Catholic groups. A facilitator can easily guide the group discussion with the many questions provided in the book. 3) Parish staff studying and planning a course of action. This would involve a more detailed study with follow-up discussions and decision making for implementation of a plan for the parish. 4) Parish wide renewal to become a missionary church. 5) Diocesan study and reflection on an action plan for the diocese. This could be in conjunction with any of the above or separate to give parishes some guidance in their reflections. The book includes suggestions for group discussion and reporting to the pastor. For volume discounts on the study guide, contact the author at norbert609@sbcglobal.net or go to his website at www.thisonly.org.
