YOU EXHAUST ME. A CLUELESS GUY'S GUIDE TO MARRIAGE by Bob Marsocci

Why a marriage guide for clueless guys? Do you really have to ask?More than 2 million guys get married every year in the United States alone, and many (perhaps most) have no clue about the world they will enter once they say, “I do.”Does a guy know the 10 Fatal Words his wife will spring on him days before her birthday? Does a guy know why he should never throw away his wife’s “bag of bags”? Does he know why he should avoid watching romance movies with his wife once he’s been married for a couple of years? No, no, and most definitely no! Millions of men are clueless about what to expect from marriage and need practical advice from a guy who has been there and seen it all.Candid and humorous, You Exhaust Me, A Clueless Guy’s Guide to Marriage, speaks directly to clueless men (married or planning to marry) everywhere. With more than 20 years’ experience (and counting) as a husband, Bob Marsocci provides valuable insight on what guys should really expect after the wedding rings go on. Bob’s personal and often hilarious marital anecdotes and lessons (often learned the hard way) will enlighten any soon-to-be or newly married man. If that’s you, take it from a formerly clueless guy: If you want to avoid hearing “You exhaust me!” from your wife, read this book. It’s got the secret sauce to keeping her (and you) happy.

AN ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO THE INTROVERTED LIFE by INFJoe


An illustrated guide to the challenges and pleasures of the introverted life
Introversion is "in." But there are still many misconceptions about introverts in the world. They're shy. Anti-social. They don't want to have close relationships. They're all cat people. They don't like big parties (okay, that last one might be true).

INFJoe, the cartoon persona of artist and introvert Aaron Caycedo-Kimura, is here to set the record straight. Filled with charming comic book style illustrations, this book provides invaluable insights into the introverted life with plenty of humor and wit. Full of moments that will make introverts say, "That's so me!" as well as helpful tips on surviving at parties and in the workplace, Text, Don't Call is the perfect gift for your quiet friends, or the extroverted ones who could use some help to better understand the introverts in their lives.

THE HUM OF ANGELS by Scot McKight



Would You Recognize an Angel if You Saw One?The majority of earth’s inhabitants believe in Angels. Yet so few of us can claim to have seen one. Why?

Perhaps it’s because in order to encounter one, we first have to learn what to look for and how to look!  We live in a world where the natural and supernatural overlap. Angels are constantly on mission from God and constantly at work in this world.

From the Garden of Eden to the Book of Revelation, Scripture is filled with hundreds of references to these wondrous creatures. In this creative work, Scot McKnight explores what the Bible says – and doesn’t say – about these majestic beings. And that’s deeply important because angels are still on mission today. They express God’s love, confirm His presence, and even lead humans in redemptive worship.

Don’t just believe in angels. Learn how to recognize these messengers of God that are all around us and know how God might be using them to affect our lives.


Most People Believe in Angels.
It’s What we Believe About them that Matters.


Believing in angels is one thing. But how can we know what angels are really like – especially when our preconceived notions have been mostly shape by sensationalized misinterpretations of these wondrous beings?

To help sort things out, Scot McKnight untangles fact from fiction on topics such as:
* Do loved ones become angels when they die?
* Can we hear from angels?
* Is there a hierarchy of angels?
* Do we have a specific guardian angel?
* Should we be scared of angels?
* Are cherubs and seraphs different creatures than angels?
* Do angels have wings?
* Are angels worship leaders?

This was a great, easy non-fiction read.  I love the way Scot McKnight explained angels in detail, challenging the scientific believer.  Stating you can believe the science side and still believe in angels. Once you read this book you will understand all about angels, which I never knew most of this information existed or was real!  A very nice job by Mr. McKnight.
