Book Summary:

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to The Braille Institute, empowering visually impaired people to live fulfilling lives.

If you are like many people in our fast-paced, 21st century world, you are scrambling just to complete your daily “to-do” list: Pack lunches, kids to school, business lunch meeting, marketing presentation, make dinner, do the dishes, kids to bed…the list never ends! You may feel like there is no time to focus your attention on trying to improve your situation, and besides, who would listen to you if you tried?

Ready, Aim, Captivate! brings together experts, entrepreneurs, and authorities on how to take your individual message and use it to reach out to others, change lives, and captivate hearts. These professionals have started successful companies, written best-selling books, and championed multimillion dollar events, but still—at their core—they are just like you. They were once someone in a bookstore reading the introduction to a book they hoped would teach them how to get where they wanted to go. They had to learn—some of them, the hard way—how to balance success at work while maintaining happiness at home. You are not alone.

Each of us has a message to share with the world. Some people were born with obvious gifts such as an ability to sing, dance, play an instrument or professional sport, or lead businesses, schools, and churches to growth and success. Others have known since they were children that they wanted to be a firefighter, a cook, a teacher, or a nurse. You may be thinking, But what about me? I’m just a regular person with a passion for something, but I have no idea how to put it to work to help anyone.

Sit down and be inspired by this collection of interviews. Listen to each contributor as they speak of their stories of hardship and frustration, and how they came to claiming a life that abounds in purpose and passion—a life that lets them share their incredible message with the world. Allow them to remind you that wherever you are right now is the perfect place to start moving toward the goal of a fulfilled life so that others can begin to be changed by your unique message.

Everyone has been inspired and most people strive to inspire others in their lifetime.

Think about someone or something that has motivated you to soar beyond where you thought you could go. Did a relative or teacher make a lasting impact that molded you into the person you are today? Did you have to wade through a time of deep struggling in order to come out victorious? Everyone has had that ‘ah-ha’ moment in their life when everything changes.

Book Summary:

Sent to Auschwitz on the first Jewish transport, Rena Kornreich survived the Nazi death camps for over three years. While there she was reunited with her sister Danka. Each day became a struggle to fulfill the promise Rena made to her mother when the family was forced to split apart–a promise to take care of her sister.

One of the few Holocaust memoirs about the lives of women in the camps, Rena’s Promise is a compelling story of the fleeting human connections that fostered determination and made survival a possibility. From the bonds between mothers, daughters, and sisters, to the links between prisoners, and even prisoners and guards, Rena’s Promise reminds us of the humanity and hope that survives inordinate inhumanity.

Book Summary:

When I say the word teenager what comes to mind? If you are like most people, the words rebellion, trouble, and stubborn come to mind. You might also think: drugs, crime, pregnancy, peer pressure, sex, puberty, driving, attitudes, relationships, irresponsible, and messy. Those about to go through the teen years might think: independence, first job, fun, sports, adventure, dating, invincible, and driving.

It is time to change the way adults see teenagers. Teens today are faced with drugs, teen pregnancy, texting or sexting, alcohol, peer pressure, bullying, and other dangers. Why do our teens use drugs and alcohol, gamble, or fall prey to other destructive behaviors such as eating disorders or cutting? We will walk through these and other scenarios, and I will offer guidance on how to get through it.

We take our children through childhood, into teenhood, and then onto adulthood. Remember: if you go into the adventure together, you will come out of it together.
