** FEATURED BOOK on the DR. LAURA SHOW, January 14, 2008! **

Winning the Drug War at Home is written in devotional format. Each chapter contains a narrative and four devotional entries related to the chapter theme.

The narratives at the opening of each chapter chronicle events that occurred in a sixteen-month period of time from the time the Pride's son was court-ordered to participate in a therapeutic wilderness program in Utah to the time he left for college. A unique feature of this book is that the devotional entries begin with excerpts from letters the Pride's son wrote while in Utah. It is a unique and powerful feature to hear the voice of the teen as well as the parent.

This book will equip the reader to let go of the hurt, confusion, and loss of dreams—and restore hope and broken relationships.

oxygen for the swimmer cover

When Alexandria Mangas started on her book as a high school sophomore, she had no idea how it would come together. She didn't dream that cartoonist Cuyler Black would give her permission to use one of his works in "Oxygen for the Swimmer". She had no idea that Paralympian Jessica Long would have time before Beijing to write and submit a story. And Mangas wouldn't have an inkling that Swimming Gold Medalist and 2008 Bejing Pentathlete would submit a story and endorse her book.

But it did come together and was released by Xulon Press, a week before her high school graduation. Mangas' book, a compilation of encouraging swim stories is a book written for swimmers or swimming wanna-be's that are 8-108. From age-group swimmer to collegiate swimmers, to master swimmers, there is a little encouragment for everyone.

Endorsements came from former Franklin High School swim and dive coach and presently Franklin College Coach Kurt Hass. Standout Center Grove HIgh School Swimmer Melody White, who now swims for Cal Poly-Tech also gave Oxygen for the Swimmer high reviews.
