A children's book that promotes same-sex marriage is being added to public library bookshelves throughout the United States. The Princes and the Treasure, a gay fairy tale book, aims to teach children about same-sex relationships and same sex-marriage.
The author, Jeffrey Miles, told The Christian Post in an emailed statement that his children's book "tells the story of two handsome princes who go on a quest to save a princess, but fall in love with each other, get married, and live happily ever after."
Miles, a professor at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California, has been married to his husband, Patrick Lastowski, for more than five years, and they've been a couple for 10 years. more >>
The desire of a Tennessee pastor's wife to feed the needy, including strippers throughout Nashville nightclubs, has grown into a full blown ministry that's also about spreading the Gospel as well.
Erin Stevens, whose husband Todd leads Friendship Community Church, still believes in showing God's love through practical ways just like she has done since she began her ministry nearly two years ago. Stevens provides meals and gifts with no strings attached as part of her Strip Church Ministry.
In their new book, "How to Pick Up A Stripper and Other Acts of Kindness," the Stevens' urge readers to step out of their comfort zone in order to reach people for Christ, while remaining culturally relevant, without compromising their goal of demonstrating God's love through actions. more >>
Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's new book, "Hard Choices," is being roundly ripped by reviewers across America and the book's publisher, Simon and Schuster, which reportedly paid her a whopping $14 million advance, are worried it could be a "bomb."
"'Hard Choices' is a frustrating read. The memoir has the cautious, polished, poll-tested feel of a campaign speech," declared The Economist about the book under the headline, "Hillary Clinton's Bad Book."
Randy Lewis, a former senior vice president of Walgreens, is the author of the highly inspirational book, No Greatness Without Goodness: How a Father's Love Changed a Company and Sparked a Movement. The book isn't only exceptional reading for business leaders who want their companies to become more efficient and profitable, but it also provides nuggets of wisdom and real life lessons for people who have the desire to build stronger and more meaningful relationships with those around them: friends, neighbors and coworkers.
Lewis and his wife, Kay, have three children. Their middle child, a son named Austin, has autism. During a speech in front of 5,000 Walgreens store managers at a conference in Las Vegas, he shared that "nearly 70 percent of individuals with disabilities and 95 percent of people with severe cognitive disabilities, like Austin, would never hold down a job."
This is not because people with disabilities cannot do the work, it's because many employers fail to realize that hiring people with disabilities will actually increase the overall performance among all of their employees. more >>

"Insanity" is popularly defined as doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Yet, people have a tendency to do just that, whether it is with relationships, jobs, or destructive behavior. "Sanity" does not come, however, by simply dropping bad habits and relationships or swearing off certain behaviors. As Dr. Henry Cloud puts it, one has to take off the old and put on the new.
Cloud, a clinical psychologist, leadership consultant and author of the long-standing bestseller, Boundaries, presents in his new book, Never Go Back: 10 Things You'll Never Do Again (Howard Books), "ten key realizations about behaviors and thought patterns that hold us back and keep us from our goals."
"What we know about the brain is it's sorta like the old spiritual advice. What the Bible tell us is, there's two sides to getting better. We've gotta put off the old, but we have to put on the new. There's no such thing, really as stopping doing something without replacing it with a different direction and a different way of behaving," Cloud told The Christian Post in a recent interview. more >>
