SHORT STORIES
Toward an Interior Sun

In this collection of short stories, Max Reif digs deep to offer an entertaining and insightful account of this arduous spiritual trek.

These stories take the reader on a bumpy ride from the dark depths of shock therapy to the soaring heights of seeing God manifest in the world, illuminating the hope we all have for redemption and rebirth.

This is a book not just for Baba lovers but for all who want spiritual growth and want to learn through the challenges of a personal story about the spiritual journey.

We All Have Wings

By using the butterfly metaphor,a concept many children are familiar with as part of their early learning curriculum, Kathy Roberts and Dawn Carter combine story and art as an entry for creativity and conversation. Reading and coloring together gives story time a new twist; a chance for the whole family to relax  and talk about important things. Change, as they say, is inevitable. Will doubt slow our growth or will wings be our destiny?
