In the history of the movies, thousands of men, women, children, and even animals have tried to find success as a movie star. They were drawn from theater, opera, sports, and every type of entertainment venue, and some even came from out of nowhere. They took valiant stabs at entrancing audiences with their faces, personalities, or peculiarities. A precious few achieved greater popularity than anyone could have ever dreamed, but others vanished beneath the sands of time along with the films they so lovingly made. They gave us their most audacious efforts, but they did not find any lasting success, or having enjoyed a brief blush with triumph, they returned home to their true metiers. Some simply never found a second chance. This book celebrates the memorable attempts of ten who tried to be a movie star.

Taking an uncommon look at God's creation, this book will engage both children and adults with its combination of scientific accuracy, wide-eyed wonder, and subtle humor. Joanne De Jonge here presents a wealth of little-known facts about some fascinating creatures that we often overlook. All Nature Sings discusses the nature no one actually sings about.
Although we generally don't see the slimy slug, the hairy tarantula, or the slithering snake as "nice" nature, these creatures also sing God's praises in their own way -- we simply don't know their song. But after looking through Joanne's eyes at worms, pill bugs, gerbils, yaks, and other interesting animals, readers will see anew how all of nature does indeed sing.
An inmate who starts out with a pen pal and ends up with a husband-that's sketchy territory. But in Wil and Linda Yazzie's case, it turned out to be sacred territory.She was a devout Christian. He was a hope alcoholic whose addictions robbed him of decades of his life, yet he goes from career criminal to Hollywood actor and devoted minister with a message. If it weren't for the unconditional love and faithful prayers of his wife Linda, Wil would be dead--like most of his drinking buddies. Total pardon is an extraordinary, true reversal of destiny story that offers radical hope for those struggling with addiction.
