    Este libro es un crudo relato autobiográfico que se asemeja al bestseller internacional La cruz y el puñal. Casey Díaz llegó a este país cuando tenía dos años, siendo el hijo mayor de inmigrantes salvadoreños que se establecieron en los suburbios del centro de Los Ángeles en la década de 1970. Un padre abusivo que golpeaba constantemente a su madre arrastró a Casey a las pandillas callejeras a la edad de once años. Escaló rápidamente dentro de los Rockwood Street Locos y participó en invasiones a hogares, robo de automóviles y en el apuñalamiento de sus rivales, muchas veces con tan solo un destornillador o un cuchillo. A los dieciséis fue arrestado y sentenciado a casi trece años en una prisión estatal por asesinato en segundo grado, y recibió cincuenta y dos cargos por robo. Al cabo de dos años fue enviado a la Prisión Estatal de New Folsom y puesto en confinamiento solitario durante veintitrés horas al día. Cuando una mujer mayor de color, que servía en el ministerio carcelario, se acerca a su celda y le dice que Jesús lo ama y que Dios lo va a usar algún día, Casey se burla de ella. Entonces, un día ocurre un hecho milagroso en su celda. Al igual que una película, ve su vida “proyectada” en la pared de la celda. Se ve a sí mismo como un pequeño niño en su antiguo barrio, y luego observa sus primeros días en las escenas de las bandas, hechos que solo él podía recordar. Luego ve a un hombre de pelo largo que carga una cruz, y una multitud que le grita. Él es clavado en la cruz y colocado entre otros dos condenados a muerte. El hombre de la cruz lo mira y le dice: “Estoy haciendo esto por ti”.

    On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama. She was not trying to start a movement. She was simply tired of the social injustice.

Reflections by Rosa Parks celebrates the principles and convictions that guided her through a remarkable life. It is a printed record of her legacy—her lasting message to a world still struggling to live in harmony. Including historic and beautiful pictures, this collection of Rosa Parks’s reflections includes topics like dealing with fear, facing injustice, developing character and determination, faith in God, and her hope for the future. “I want to be remembered as a person who stood up to injustice,” writes Rosa Parks, “who wanted a better world for young people.” With Mrs. Parks’s words of wisdom, humility, and compassion, this book will inspire people of all races to carry on her great legacy.

    Too often the world speaks words of harm, and too often we believe them--and so we live stories God never intended for us. Yet God longs to rewrite and redeem your story. Tiffini Kilgore, founder of the lifestyle and design boutique House of Belonging, grew up in a broken home before marrying at the tender age of sixteen. Years later, divorced and with three small children, she remarried. The seasons that followed brought two more children, another broken marriage, chronic disease, major surgeries, and cycles of abuse--leaving Tiffini feeling alone and unloved. Hungry for healing and a safe space, Tiffini began seeking Jesus through journaling and soon found bread crumbs of grace leading her down a new path. There, she found a rich table set for misfits just like her--a place of nourishment and restoration. Where she was fed lies of worthlessness, God fed her truth that she was his treasured daughter. Where she was told she was a helpless victim, God offered her the cup of his strength. Where she once held an empty future, God gave her hope and a fresh start. In cultivating an ongoing dialogue with her Abba Father, God transformed Tiffini's pain into passion, and ultimately, fierce belonging. Tiffini writes as a modern-day mystic, with lyrical force and deep tending of the soul, in this audiobook for anyone who has ever felt out of place or at odds in the world. Each chapter features compelling narrative as well as a poignant response from 'Papa' God as Tiffini calls him, and the result is a stirring invitation to come home to where you belong. Come and sit, take and eat, and join the battle cry to take God at his word.
