The Maverick Soul:A Celebration of Bohemian Interiors Miv Watts, Hugh Stewart
Grace, dignity, and eloquence have long been hallmarks of Maya Angelou´s poetry. Her measured verses have stirred our souls, energized our minds, and healed our hearts. Whether offering hope in the darkest of nights or expressing sincere joy at the extraordinariness of the everyday, Maya Angelou has served as our common voice. Celebrations is a collection of timely and timeless poems that are an integral part of the global fabric. Several works have become nearly as iconic as Angelou herself: the inspiring ´´On the Pulse of Morning´´, read at President Bill Clinton´s 1993 inauguration; the heartening ´´Amazing Peace´´, presented at the 2005 lighting of the national Christmas tree at the White House; ´´A Brave and Startling Truth´´, which marked the 50th anniversary of the United Nations; and ´´Mother´´, which beautifully honors the first woman in our lives. Angelou writes of celebrations public and private; included in this volume are a bar mitzvah wish to her nephew and a birthday greeting to Oprah Winfrey. More than a writer, Angelou is a chronicler of history, an advocate for peace, and a champion for the planet, as well as a patriot, a mentor, and a friend. To be shared and cherished, the wisdom and poetry of Maya Angelou proves there is always cause for celebration. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Maya Angelou.

Come with your brokenness, your celebration, and your worries, but, most of all, come and eat. In today´s busy and often superficial world, we all crave something deeper and truer. Maybe it´s relationships that go beyond the surface or gatherings that allow for joy and pain. Bri McKoy tells us this is within reach! All we need is a table, open hearts, and a simple invitation: come and eat. McKoy invites us to discover how a common dining-room table can be transformed into a place where brokenness falls away to reveal peace and fellowship. Whether the table is laid with bounty or with meager offerings, whether it is surrounded by the Body of Christ or homeless, broken souls, she shows us that healing begins when we say, ´´Come in. I may not know you, but I know your maker. And so I offer you my heart.´´ For all those who are hungry and craving more of God´s kingdom in their homes, Come and Eat offers recipes, tips, and questions to jump-start conversation while reminding us that fellowship in God´s love is always the most remembered, most cherished nourishment. Because when we make room for others, we make room for God, and our homes become vibrant sources of life, just as he means them to be. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Diana Batarseh.
