Don't Have a Pity Party... Throw a Faith Fest! Finding Hope in God's Word Lorna Lumpris thought her world had ended when she was downsized from her six-figure-salary corporate position. Instead, she found herself embarking on the adventure of her life. During an extended period of unemployment, Lorna came to know and trust God in a way she had never thought possible. Though she had been a faithful churchgoer for years, she had not seriously studied God’s Word until she faced a series of overwhelming financial and family setbacks. When she did not have a leg to stand on, she discovered she could rest on the truth of the Bible. Now she wants others to find and grow in the same confidence that God can direct, protect, and provide for you as you trust Him to speak through the pages of scripture. From her years of study and personal, supernatural experiences with God, Lorna explains how you can find hope in the most challenging circumstances, as you look to the Bible.

A charming travelogue set in the British Raj, A Winter in India presents a fascinating journey across people, customs, languages, cities, monuments, and landscapes. Spens’ thrilling and amusing anecdotes and multifarious experiences — of the rugged Khyber Pass and its tribes, the military history and the Mutiny of 1857 at Kanpur and Lucknow, religion and rituals at Banaras, the grandeur of the "pink" city Jaipur, the seedy opium dens by night and the "Towers of Silence" by day in Mumbai, to a "remembrance of things past" in Agra and Delhi — map the changing contours of British Raj in India. It also depicts the British engagement with India, and offers insights into its emergence as a modern nation. The new Introduction by Peter Robb locates Spens’ complex and wide-ranging explorations of the "Orient" in a historical context. It discusses the ambivalent outlook of the British towards the "East" at the turn of the century, illustrating Spens’ mix of prejudice and admiration that also typified British attitudes to India, and helps explain the character and influence of imperial rule. This book will deeply interest readers of modern Indian history, travel literature, South Asian studies, cultural anthropology, ethnography, as well as the general reader.
