A Sister’s Sacrifice

A Sister’s Sacrifice
Chris B. Porter

They say when you die and go to heaven, your loved ones are there waiting for you. This wasn’t the case for Megan. Her memories felt clouded and she knew something wasn’t quite right. Wasn’t Ashley supposed to be there too?

Megan would gladly leave heaven and search the darkest areas in the afterlife to find her sister. Luckily, she finds some help along the way.

Dear Ladies on the MegaBus,

Stop.  What are you doing?  Your stuff is literally everywhere—jackets on our chairs, bags on multiple seats.  Who do you think you are?  And then waking us up several times because you’re cold and need your jackets or because you are shaking the seats?  You’re self-centered and rude and I hope you miss your next bus.

The librarian you keep waking up

D is for Dreams

I was always taught that with hard work and sacrifice, I would be able to pursue my dreams and achieve anything I set my mind to.  While this may be true for some people, I think it’s an over-simplification of the process.

I did everything right and sacrificed a lot, and yet my true dreams have yet to be achieved.  I realized at some point that this collaboration of hard work and sacrifice wasn’t enough.  There has to be a drive to take risks and a hope that it is all going somewhere in order for that sacrifice to get transformed into something really powerful.

Weight loss showed that to me.  Unless I thought I would be able to lose weight and do well, none of my self-punishing sacrifices meant anything.  The same with my writing career.  If I was going to spend all day at work because it was the right thing to do, nothing was going to just magically happen to the novels sitting on my hard drive.  Taking time to work on my writing or to practice self-care is necessary to doing well in the long run–just as important as believing that the time spent on me is worth it in the end.

Every dream in our life is possible and deserves to be worked on—especially when it means a practice in self-love and care.

Exodus Lost by M C Compton

Exodus Lost
M. C. Compton

Aztec and Mayan chronicles told of voyagers who arrived from across the Atlantic Ocean centuries before Columbus. Remembered as founding fathers, they hailed from a remote land called Tlillan Tlapallan, “Black Land Red Land.” Now, for the first time, Exodus Lost presents compelling evidence that this lost homeland was Kemet Deshret, “Black Land Red Land,” the ancient Egyptian name for Egypt. From this follow a series of groundbreaking discoveries into the origins of Mexican civilization, the roots of Western civilization, the creation of the alphabet, the history of the pyramids, and even new archaeological evidence for several major Bible stories. Enter a world of exploration and discovery, mystery and revelation. Whether your passion is archaeology or religion, history or simply a great adventure, Exodus Lost delivers. Beautifully illustrated with 126 photos, maps, and engravings.

“Exodus Lost is a first-rate intellectual adventure. Its fresh perspective and new revelations make for a thoughtful and captivating journey into the roots of Mesoamerican and Western civilizations. I highly recommend this thought-provoking new book.”
—Dr. Jonathan Fanton, President of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences

“I thoroughly enjoyed Exodus Lost. It is definitely a page-turner; it reads like a scholarly mystery novel bringing various clues together to solve an ancient mystery. You will not want to put it down once you start. What’s more, the author’s theories correlate with some of the latest archaeological evidence coming to light. Exodus Lost brings sound research and archaeology together to give readers a different and intriguing perspective on ancient history!”
—Dr. David Kaufman, linguistic anthropologist

“My husband took this manuscript on our yearly vacation to Padre Island. All I can tell you is that neither of us could put the manuscript down until it was finished. Only later did the irony of the situation appear: the scholarly documentation of the Pre-Columbian civilization of Mesoamerica articulated in such an engaging spell-binding manner that neither of us could stop reading it. Guaranteed to be a real page-turner.”
—Dr. Vienna Schwartz
