Big Mama blog founder and New York Times bestselling author Melanie Shankle helps us sort through our questions about being true to ourselves in a world gone crazy and what matters the most in the end.
These days, so many voices tell us what to do, what to think, and what kind of parent or friend or spouse to be that it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and defeated. Somewhere in the midst of online arguments and crazy politics and the ups and downs of life, we’ve lost sight of the gifts that are all around us: kindness, love, mercy, and joy.
In On the Bright Side, Melanie Shankle reminds us of the unchanging principles we can count on in a changing world. These are lessons that Melanie has learned along the way about how to find all the joy that life has to offer – and why encouragement is never something to keep to ourselves. Exploring topics such as dealing with comparisons, when life doesn’t turn out like we expected, and how to find your people, Melanie invites us to lead with love in all areas of our lives.
This delightful memoir highlights the joys of life told in Melanie’s down to earth, relatable, and totally enjoyable style. On the Bright Side is a how-to guide to knowing – and living – what matters most.

The prayer of praise is a way for us to give honor to God for who he is. So much has been written about the power of praise in the life of a Christian. We are all familiar with praises in the form of songs of praise. Yet one form of praise, where we address God with titles and words that call to mind his boundless power, ineffable majesty, and other divine qualities, also help to transport us to the glorious presence of God.
This book is about this form of praise. The author has pieced together the glimpses of God given to us by his Son Jesus Christ and by the words of the Holy Scriptures generally to make a glorious mosaic. It contains a variety of 12 prayers of praise. Some are short and some are longish. There are praises directed to God the Father and there are also praises directed to our Lord Jesus Christ. The praises are fully annotated with Scriptural references and that gives you an opportunity to explore the themes of the praises further.
It’s a worthy companion to bring to your quiet time and we believe that, like the author, you will find it a great help in prayer. You will get to know the person of the God the Father of our Lord Jesus and his Son more and more. And the more we get to know the God we pray to, the better our prayers and our Christian life.

Murphy Shepherd is a man with many secrets. He lives alone on an island, tending the grounds of a church with no parishioners, and he’s dedicated his life to rescuing those in peril. But as he mourns the loss of his mentor and friend, Murph himself may be more lost than he realizes.
When he pulls a beautiful woman named Summer out of Florida’s Intracoastal Waterway, Murph’s mission to lay his mentor to rest at the end of the world takes a dangerous turn. Drawn to Summer, and desperate to find her missing daughter, Murph is pulled deeper and deeper into the dark and dangerous world of modern-day slavery.
With help from some unexpected new friends, including a faithful Labrador he plucks from the ocean and an ex-convict named Clay, Murph must race against the clock to locate the girl before he is consumed by the secrets of his past—and the ghosts who tried to bury them.
