The One Year Devos for Teen Girls is a fresh new devotional just for teen girls by popular author Dannah Gresh. The subject matter is current and includes modern topics. The devotions often utilize social media such as viewing YouTube videos and dealing with Facebook. While the subject matter is modern, Gresh, in her solid big-sister fashion, points girls to the unchanging Word of God. She meets girls where they are and simply explains what God’s Word says about the issue. The devotional reads like a handbook on living as a teen girl in today’s society. Gresh doesn’t shy away from controversial issues, but gives a biblical perspective on topics teens are sure to wonder about, such as sexuality, bullying, self-worth, church issues, hypocrisy, and Facebook. Gresh writes the devotional with Suzy Weibel, the wife of her pastor.

When an Earth woman travels through a hidden portal to the magical Witch World, she joins a witch and a warrior in an epic battle against evil. Kelsie McBlair has always loved the Scottish Highlands, and assumes responsibility to care for the flora and fauna therein. But when she tries to help an injured wildcat, she takes a fall between two great stones, knocking herself unconscious. She awakens in a world she never thought possible—a world where magic users, mighty heroes, and terrible monsters dwell. When she comes across a dying woman, she doesn’t know what to do. And the feeling only worsens when the woman hands Kelsie a strange glowing jewel many dangerous creatures are after. Soon she finds herself on an incredible adventure accompanied by a cynical witch who doesn’t trust her and a young warrior sworn to protect her. All three will be bound to each other for survival, as they are the only ones who can stem the tide of the Dark forces ravaging the land, and Kelsie—the strange Earth woman—proves to be the only one who can face off against the Lord of the Dark himself . . . In The Gate of the Cat, Andre Norton’s “many Witch World fans will welcome this return to a land of powerful witches, mail-clad warriors, and mysterious Old Ones” (Library Journal).

The only fully comprehensive guide to ?all things feline,? from the host of Cat Chat on Martha Stewart Living Radio. Finally, a definitive book that delivers many unknown facts about every aspect of caring for and sharing your life with a cat, ranging from proper nutrition and strange behavior to medical care and multi-cat households, to grooming and geriatrics. The Cat Bible explains the mysteries of feline behavior to owners who are devoted to their cats without being able to fully understand them. It offers straightforward solutions to the problems that cause people to give up their cats, many of which are preventable, including litter box avoidance, furniture scratching, and physical ailments. There are more than 90 million American households that count cats as family members, but they are a vastly underserved population, devoted to their kitties, yet bereft of all the public attention, programming, and print devoted to dogs. Now, bestselling author and investigative journalist Tracie Hotchner offers them The Cat Bible, with straightforward, fact-filled solutions to health and behavior problems, based on years of research into the real reasons behind these issues. In the same warm, straightforward style that attracts devoted listeners to her radio shows, Tracie tackles controversial topics such as the truth about commercial dry pet foods and their dangers, bringing readers the latest facts on every topic that affects a feline?s well-being.
