It happened in stages.My father left.My twin sister died of an incurable autoimmune disease.My mother started breaking down.Then I was diagnosed with the very thing that took my other half from me.That was when I realized Mama's eyes turned gold when she cried.So I moved in with my father and his new family--new wife, new son, new stepbrother.Kaiden Monroe made me feel normal.Hated. Cared for. Loathed. And ... loved.Somewhere along the way, I'd found solace in the boy with brooding eyes.But everything happens in stages.And nothing good ever lasts.

"A Word to Encourage is a ministry tool for the Christian. It is a collection of greeting books and cards written to address common concerns to uplift the reader. They can be used as a follow up tool to teach, encourage, and caution. The writings are dramatized presentations or paraphrased teachings which render an interpretation of the Word of God. A book can be sent to the receiver periodically to water the seed of the Holy Spirit, or plant the seed into the new believers heart. The writings can also be used with your prayers, to reel Christ into the heart of an unbeliever who is struggling with lifes challenges. And finally the writings can be used to console and reassure the brother or sister in Christ as God purifies their faith through illnesses, death, or other hurtful events that occur in life."

The prophet Amos, a herdsman and a dresser of sycamore trees, had a parallel, and more challenging, calling as a shepherd of human souls. So too does Garret Keizer, an Episcopalian minister to the community of Island Pond in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. This profoundly contemporary book displays not only Keizer's knowledge of life's small practicalities (winding the church clock, shopping for groceries), but also his insights about faith and the mysterious ways of God. With an eye attuned to both the pleasures and foibles that make life on earth so rich, he presents a refreshing and often hilarious account of the hands-on work needed to maintain a parish and sustain its spirit. He is a man who believes that God's intentions, if seldom apparent, are inevitably compassionate and compelling.
