The Sands of Santa Rosa (A Cotton Chastain Novel Book 1)
An island beach with pristine white sands… a man with a supernatural gift… a precocious five-year-old girl… and a looming danger. Mattie Sands goes to the beach almost every day, because her five-year-old daughter, Sara, loves the warm Gulf waters and white sand of Santa Rosa Island. And, it’s a safe place for the little girl to play…isn’t it? An environmental group sabotages an oil platform, and the resulting explosion creates a spill. A scientist has genetically engineered an oil-eating bacteria, giving it a rapid rate of growth, and the CEO of the oil company releases the bacteria into the Gulf of Mexico in hopes it will clean up the spill before the public knows about it. But a well-intended action can have unintended consequences, and the bacteria creates a disaster no one could have foreseen.

Your Identity in Christ: 100 Powerful Reminders of Who You Truly Are in Jesus (Spiritual Growth by John Stange)
Who are you? This is one of the most important questions we all wrestle with in life. Just who are we? What is our identity? Who has God created us to be? At different seasons in life, we probably struggle with this question more than others. When we’re young, we tend to adopt an identity based on our abilities or our reputation among our peers. As we grow older, we may try to base our sense of identity on our background, occupation, ethnicity or even the disabilities we suffer from or the trauma we have experienced. In our senior years, our identity can sometimes be centered around what we feel we accomplished in life or the kind of family we raised and how our children and grandchildren turned out.
