“In My Father’s Arms is a beautiful reminder that peace and love are available to us at every moment if we so choose.” —John Gray, Author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus Every day we make choices based on what we believe about ourselves. If we know ourselves to be the powerful, spiritual beings that we are, then all our choices are born of love. If we believe we're victims of the world we see, our choices are based on fear and a belief in lack, so anger, guilt and shame are what we experience. Through beautiful poems, thoughts and prayers, In My Father's Arms takes us back to our beginnings; helps us to remember ourselves as God created us: whole, pure, perfect, innocent and free. It reminds us that peace, joy, love and light are our true qualities and that this identity never changes no matter what we experience in this life. In My Father's Arms helps us to release fear and choose love for ourselves, our relationships and the world at large and to remember that only the love is real.

Writing this book has brought healing and a change in my life.

Being America's favorite heiress is a dirty job...but someone's gotta do it. Lexington Larrabee has never had to work a day in her life. After all, she's the heiress to the multi-billion-dollar Larrabee Media empire. And heiresses are not supposed to work. But then again, they're not supposed to crash brand-new Mercedes convertibles into convenience stores on Sunset Boulevard either. Which is why, on Lexi's eighteenth birthday, her ever-absent, tycoon father decides to take a more proactive approach to her wayward life. Every week for the next year, she will have to take on a different low-wage job if she ever wants to receive her beloved trust fund. But if there's anything worse than working as a maid, a dishwasher, and a fast-food restaurant employee, it's dealing with Luke, the arrogant, albeit moderately attractive, college intern her father has assigned to keep tabs on her. In Jessica Brody's hilarious "comedy of heiress" about family, forgiveness, good intentions, and best of all, second chances, Lexi learns that love can be unconditional, money can be immaterial, and regardless of age, everyone needs a little saving. And although she might have fifty-two reasons to hate her father, she only needs one reason to love him.
" Today, Thomas Dixon is perhaps best known as the author of the best-selling early twentieth-century trilogy that included the novel The Clansman (1905), which provided the core narrative for D.W. Griffith's groundbreaking and still-controversial film The Birth of a Nation. It was The Sins of the Father, however, that Dixon regarded as the most aesthetically satisfying child of his Ku Klux Klan saga. In this novel he telescopes the trilogy's sprawling historical canvas into one tightly scripted narrative. A best-seller in 1912, the novel's themes of interracial sex and incest outraged many upon its publication. Nearly a century later, Dixon's work is undergoing a critical reevaluation. A new introduction by Steven Weisenburger lends a valuable historical and critical perspective to this important and divisive classic of American literature. Thomas Dixon (1864-1946) was born in Shelby, North Carolina. He is also the author of The Clansman and The Flaming Sword. Steven Weisenburger, Mossiker Chair in Humanities at Southern Methodist University, is the author of several books, including Modern Medea: A Family Story of Slavery and Child- murder from the Old South.
