Teachings of a Three Year Old... Turned Tyke
by Hal Evan Caplan
Published September 28, 2010
224 pages

This delightful collection of essays is about a father, his young son, the "teacher," and life's lessons learned and remembered. These heart-warming, humorous and adventurous tales will draw you in, keeping you laughing, smiling and thinking and you recognize some of your own children's responses. As parents we teach our children right from wrong, good from bad, and so on; but who really is the teacher, the adult or the child? Children are innocent, the don't judge, and they are genereally excited about what tomorrow may bring. As adults faced with life's challenges, most of us have lost sight of the lessons we were taught as children. This book gives you a fresh perspective on those lessons while bringing a new smile or tear with each story.

Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
by Greg Asimakoupoulos
Published June 5, 2009
268 pages

Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life." Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
