AÂ New York Times bestseller, Safari is a magical journey for the whole family. Readers, as if on African safari, encounter eight wild animals that come alive using never-before-seen Photicular technology. Each full-color image is like a 3-D movie on the page, delivering a rich, fluid, immersive visual experience. The result is breathtaking. The cheetah bounds. The gazelle leaps. The African elephant snaps its ears. The gorilla munches the leaves off a branch. Itâs mesmerizing, as visually immediate as a National Geographic or Animal Planet special.
Accompanying the images is Safari, the guide: It begins with an evocative journal of a safari along the Mara River in Kenya and interweaves the history of safaris. Then for each animal there is a lively, informative essay and an at-a-glance list of important facts. Itâs the romance of being on safariâand the thrill of seeing the animals in motionâ in a book unlike any other.
âSince the beginning, my philosophy has been âshoot with a camera not with a gun.ââ
Geoffrey Kent had nothing but an East African shilling and an old Land Rover when he pioneered the luxury tent safari business in 1962 with his parents in Nairobi. Today Kent takes thousands of adventurers, hungry for extraordinary and life-changing experiences, to the planetâs wildest frontiers.
In his gripping memoir, this âIndiana JonesâmeetsâJames Bondâ entrepreneur recounts his phenomenal journey. Kentâs life reads like a work of fiction: growing up barefoot in the African bush, riding his motorcycle across the continent, and ultimately becoming the most sought-after travel professional in the world. Safari is a breathtaking and exhilarating trip to some of the most exotic and stunning locations on earth.

Gratitude is a choice. If we fail to chose it, by default we choose ingratitude. And once allowed into the heart, ingratitude does not come by itself, but with other seedy companions that only succeed in stealing joy.
Derived from a popular Revive Our Hearts radio series,Â Choosing Gratitude:Â Your Journey to JoyÂ challenges and equips the reader to live a life of intention, a life based on thankfulness for the freedom Christ has provided and for the blessings of others.
By intentionally thanking God and others, bitterness and entitlementÂ are replaced with joy and the humble realization of just how undeserving we really are.Â
To not choose gratitude is more costly than we usually realize. When we do choose a lifestyle of heartfelt, humble gratitude, we are mindful of the benefits received from our gracious Savior and those He has placed around us, and our joy becomes full.Â Â
Includes a bonus 30-day plan of journaling, prayer, and activities to help the reader on her path to joy
The potential to live your best life starts with each new morning. With every sunrise, you can choose to approach the day with an attitude of faith and expectancy. Bestselling author Joel Osteen writes, "When you get up in the morning, the first things you should do is set your mind in the right direction . . . and then go out anticipating good things."
Now, for the first time, Pastor Osteen presents a tool to accomplish that goal. Based on his book, Your Best Life Now, he offers prescriptions for positive living in 365 daily messages. Each message is accompanied by a relevant scripture.
