This book is based on my prayerful meditations on what the old stories must mean to us in the everyday present world. In our time, we have historians and scientist all running around attempting to demonstrate whether the stories are true or if they could even be accurate. The religious leaders always state that we use our faith with these stories in these times of faith questioning and proving, not be a doubting Thomas in these times. We do not have to see the scars or the proof, we believe because of the unseen. The intent of this book is not to change the real meanings in the Bible, but to make us think about the simple parts. Relying on the old trait of finding meaning and symbolism in literature, I have examined these stories. As you read the stories in scripture and the version of interpretation that I have found, ask yourself, what is God saying to you? Scripture is the love letter from a friend, God. He speaks to each of us differently and with different directions, these may not trigger the same thoughts in your understanding, but if they bring cause for you to examine the word, then I have been successful. As you begin to read this book, be prepared to ask yourself questions. Be prepared to listen to what God is telling you. So often we read a story and that is the story, we never revisit it. But the Bible is not like a regular book; it can be read over and over, each time revealing something more intriguing than the last. The layout of this book is to first consider who we are, what our role is in this vast community of people. Then I move through a section imaging how we interact and learn to live in Gods love and grace. Finally, I discuss some of our daily activities such as work, school, home ownership, and voting.

An Unexpected Story of Hope and Perseverance... As a young child, it was obvious something was wrong with Michael. He lacked basic motor skills and was unable to follow simple instructions or answer questions. Testing revealed a diagnosis of autism with a low IQ. Experts insisted that leading an independent life would be impossible for him...and school was not an option. Supported by documentation and interviews, Michael's heartfelt memoir traces the sustained challenges and turbulent journey he faced. His life was plagued by failures, negative results, rejections from schools, an inability to complete simple karate moves or participate in activities-all of which confirmed the hopeless situation. But Michael was surrounded by support, and he was encouraged to keep trying no matter how many times he failed. Developmental progress was not always obvious, but Michael was finding his own unique path. What Autism Gave Me is a powerful reminder that the human drive to succeed is stronger than any diagnosis.

One fall day, I found myself in the car holding on to a squirmy, very adorable puppy. We were taking her home. From the moment we picked her up, she became my mentor, teaching me life lessons without ever trying. She loved the world and all of us. She became a wonderful traveler, and over time, she became socialized. She taught me patience, got me through some rough times, showed me how to be playful, and strengthened me spiritually. I began to record some of our experiences together. Those reflections became this book. The book ends with her first birthday and our celebration of Dog who opened insights to God.

Follow My Lead is the story of how two rambunctious dogs and a tough Eastern European dog trainer named Irina taught Carol Quinn everything she needed to know about life, love, and happiness. It all begins when the author—unhappy with her failing love affair, her career, and even herself—decides to enroll her two Rhodesian ridgebacks into dog agility training. She's hoping to both find a hobby and straighten out her unruly pets, but she soon discovers that dog agility demands more from her than she ever expected. What follows is a life-changing experience: one that teaches her not only about her dogs but also about herself. With Irina’s guidance and wisdom, Quinn and her dogs develop a deep bond of trust as they learn to navigate the course obstacles, and Quinn begins to accept her own flaws, allowing her to find the inner strength to become the "alpha dog” of her own life.
