One of the greatest witnessing tools is the daily life we live as we interact with our peers and family. At the age of thirteen, I accepted the Lord as my personal Savior in a small church in Elyria, Ohio. Never has there been a moment since that day that I did not love the Lord and want to remain faithful to him. Divorce and the loss of two children drew me to my knees, knowing that I needed God more during those times than ever. But my precious mother and father, Evialee and Walter Matney, taught me the ways of the Lord, living a life before me that even at the age of seventy-four, they are still with me. The devotions within this book include stories of my own from childhood and through adolescence, to raising my children and into my senior years. There are times that I fell to my knees, asking God for wisdom and knowledge, not knowing what to do. But intimate experiences with the Lord gave me the hope I needed to continue my journey of faith. I hope as you go through these 365 interpersonal devotions, you will encounter the love of God in a powerful new way. May the Lord Jesus Christ bless and keep you. Truly, the Lord is my Shepherd, and thats enuff.

Rituals mark significant moments in our livesperhaps none more significant than moments of lightheartedness, joy, and play. The rituals that bond humanity create our most transcendent experiences and meaningful memories. Rituals of play are among the most sacred of any of the rites in which humanity may engage. Although we may fail to recognize rituals of play, they are always present in culture, providing a kind of psychological release for their participants, child and adult alike. Ritual is central to storytelling. Story and practice are symbiotic. Their relationship reflects the vitality of the soul. Disneyland is an example of the kind of container necessary for the construction of rituals of play. This work explores the original Disney theme park in Anaheim as a temple cult. It challenges the disciplines of mythological studies, religious studies, film studies, and depth psychology to broaden traditional definitions of the kind of cultural apparatus that constitute temple culture and ritual. It does so by suggesting that Hollywoods entertainment industry has developed a platform for mythic ritual. After setting the ritualized "stage", this book turns to the practices in Disneyland proper, analyzing the patrons traditions within the framework of the park and beyond. It explores Disneylands spectacles, through selected shows and parades, and concludes with an exploration of the parks participation in ritual renewal.

The unbelievable true story of artist Thomas Kinkade, self-described “Painter of Light,” and the dramatic rise —and fall—of his billion-dollar gallery and licensing business. He was just one man, but Thomas Kinkade ultimately made more money from his art than every other artist in the history of the world combined. His sentimental paintings of babbling brooks, rural churches surrounded by brilliant fall foliage, and idyllic countryside cottages were so popular in the 1990s that one out of every twenty homes in America owned one of his prints. With the help of two partners—a former vacuum-cleaner salesman and an ambitious junior accountant who fancied himself a businessman—Kinkade turned his art into a billion-dollar gallery and licensing business that traded on the NYSE before it collapsed in 2006 amid fraud accusations. One part a fascinating business story about the rise, and demise, of a financial empire born out of divine inspiration, one part a dramatic biography, Billion Dollar Painter is the account of three nobodies who made it big. One of them was a man who, despite being a devout Christian who believed his artwork was a spiritual force that could cure the sick and comfort the poor in spirit, could not save his art empire, or himself. Eric Kuskey, former colleague of Thomas Kinkade's and close friend until the artist's death in 2012, tells Kinkade's story for the first time—from his art's humble beginnings on a sidewalk in Carmel, California, to his five-house compound in Monte Sereno. It's a tale of addiction and grief, of losing control, and ultimately, of the price of our dreams.
