Fifteen year old Beth Hamlin is horrified to discover her beloved summer camp must go without campfires, due to the fire hazard from a drought. But Beth isn’t one to just sit (or swim, or boat, or horseback) around, when there’s a challenge to be met.
Beth discovers her new cabinmate knows a local Cherokee with the ability to do a rain dance. All they have to do is trick the Camp Director into letting him do the dance there—while avoiding the local bully, and a flying arrow or two. With luck southern Indiana will get a nice, soaking rain, and when it’s over Camp Inipi can have proper campfires again.
But when things go horribly wrong, the whole area is endangered by a double disaster. Now Beth, Cassidy, and the rest of their unit may be the only people who can save not only their camp, but everyone in it.

What Can I Be? STEM Careers from A to Z is an inspiring and easy-to-read alphabet picture book that teaches our next generation about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) careers.
This book provides colorful illustrations of six diverse children representing various STEM careers (i.e. astronauts, doctors, scientists, and engineers, etc), helping children (5 to 8 years old) see themselves in one of the STEM careers, and motivates them to shape their future through STEM!
What is the nature of God? Do I have free will? Why is there suffering? Is Science compatible with Faith? Answering these and other similar big questions well is especially important if we want to engage with non-Christians in ways that are meaningful, credible, and authentic, on an intellectual and spiritual perspective. This Discussion Guide is written for personal study or group discussions for people who want to have credible answers to complex questions.
The post-modern world we live in today is desperate for authenticity, so it is even more important that Christianity is seen as a viable source of truth. This will not happen if Christians give simplistic answers to complex questions, which are easily critiqued or even ridiculed for their lack of insight. To say that one is being persecuted for one’s faith in such a situation is a weak defense and is little more than a cop-out for spiritual immaturity.
These questions can help us wrestle with complex issues, and hopefully, come to a greater understanding of what we think and believe. And above all, grow in our knowledge of God and how we can live more coherently as Christians in this world.

Remember when you were a child and incessantly asked your parents “Why?” You still had that childhood gift of wondering about everything from the simple “Why can’t I touch the stove eye when it’s red?” to the most profound questions people can ask “Why can’t I see God if He’s real?” A common perception of a philosopher is of the wizened old guru, sitting on a mountain top contemplating his navel; or worse, a stodgy, boring intellectual that everyone avoids at parties. But philosophy, at its best, is a joyous profession. Philosophers never stop wondering, why? They ask the most profound and universal questions: “Why am I here?” “Does life have a meaning?” “Is there a God?” “Do I have an immortal soul?” “What happens when I die?” Philosophers have the joy of re-living the wonder of a child. Aerobics for the Mind: Practical Exercises in Philosophy that Anybody Can Do is a book for anyone who still has that unique, childlike sense of wonder.
