Fear in a woman’s life can be controlling, deceptive, and downright crippling. Even as a Christian woman from a well-known family of pastors and Christian leaders, Cheryl Brodersen knew this kind of fear and hated the control it had over her world. Growing up, she often felt the scrutiny and judgment of people around her and this just added to the fear. Wanting to hide away from everyone, she realized fear was determining her decisions and life direction. In the midst of the pain God spoke to Cheryl’s heart and she began a beautiful journey toward freedom. As she understood His word more deeply she saw what it meant to walk in the light—full of confidence and trust in God and His goodness. As a gifted Bible teacher, Cheryl takes readers on an eye-opening and heart-filling study of what the Bible says about fear and how to overcome it, helping women find true faith and the peace that comes from leaving fear behind.

Read what it was like to go into a building everyone else was running or jumping from. Newark firefighters appointed between 1942 and 1978 describe their experiences on the scene of fires and assorted other emergencies to which they responded. Responding leaves the firehouse and rolls out into the streets of Newark where our work is done. You are brought into the fire building to share the satisfaction and sacrifices inherent in the fire service. Crawl down the hot dark hallways of fire buildings with Newark's bravest. The reader is introduced to responding and fire fighting procedures. Memorable fires from 1942 to 1966 are recounted along with unusual responses from the '40's to the '90's. Vivid memories of tragedies and lost brothers are re-lived with poignant honesty as the men continue to paint an unvarnished history of New Jersey's largest city.
There was a time when everyone told Peyton Stratford their secrets. And that was stressful. Now it seems that nobody’s confiding in her—and that’s stressful too! Is she being sidelined as a trusted friend and confidant because she’s now a wife and mother? It even seems her husband has been keeping information from her. Who would have thought Pastor Brice could have a ‘past’? Or that this recently divorced past might still have designs on his present… and future? It’s a secret that Peyton's been keeping for Jen, however, that is her biggest concern. Of course, it’s not Peyton’s secret to tell; plus she promised she never would. After all, telling it could have some serious consequences—for more than just Jen. But is it wrong to keep silent about something so significant? What’s more important—friendship or truth? It’s time for Peyton to learn to let go. But if she does, will anyone be there to catch her?
