    Embraced by the Light
    Betty J. Eadie

    [​IMG]
    #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - The groundbreaking account of life after death that has become a source of comfort, inspiration, and solace to millions "I felt a surge of energy, and my spirit was suddenly drawn through my chest and pulled upward. My first impression is that I was free. . . ." On the night of November 19, 1973, following surgery, thirty-one-year-old wife and mother Betty J. Eadie died. This is her extraordinary story of the events that followed, her astonishing proof of life after physical death. She saw more, perhaps than any other person has seen before and shares her almost photographic recollections of the remarkable details. Compelling, inspiring, and infinitely reassuring, her vivid account gives us a glimpse of the peace and unconditional love that awaits us all. More important, Betty's journey offers a simple message that can transform our lives today, showing us our purpose and guiding us to live the way we were meant to--joyously, abundantly, and with love. Praise for Embraced by the Light "The most detailed and spellbinding near-death experience I have ever heard."--Kimberly Clark-Sharp, president, Seattle International Association of Near-Death Studies

    Elementary Catechism on the Constitution of the United States by Arthur J. Stansbury, 1828.

    The Catechism was first used in the early 1800's for school children but should be required reading in every school today. It is an excellent way to re-acquaint yourself with the nature and benefit of strict constitutional government and for those who are discovering their true heritage for the first time.

    My fare for reading lately, personal enjoyment, has been more on the fantasy, sexual romance side of life.
