One morning in September 2011, a large crowd gathered at the shore in Huntington Beach, California. The people had come to watch dozens of surfers ride the rolling ocean waves. This wasn’t just any surfing competition, however—the surfers were dogs! With more than a thousand fans cheering the competitors on, an English bulldog named Sir Hollywood rode a long wave and was declared one of the winners. Surf dog competitions are fairly new, but dogs have been riding surfboards with their owners for fun since the 1920s. In Surf Dog Miracles, kids will meet the talented dogs that learn to balance on a surfboard, recover if they almost fall off the board, and even surf backward. Some surf dogs raise money for charity, while others can help people with disabilities ride a wave. Packed with real-life stories and full-color photos of these special animals, this book is sure to be a favorite of dog lovers everywhere.

Brad and Sherry Steiger have collected dramatic, carefully documented true-life anecdotes that showcase canines' amazing intelligence, courage, and sometimes seemingly supernatural powers. Often, there are no sensible explanations for how the dogs overcome obstacles like natural disasters and fierce wilderness areas, predators, grievous injuries, and more to find their human families. These fascinating reunion stories include: --Mason, the white terrier who crawled home on two broken legs to what remained of his family's tornado-ravaged house --Buca, who sat on a hill over Utah's Rte. I-15 for two months waiting for the car he knew would bring him home --Eddie, the beagle, who walked 450 miles over four months to reunite with disabled four-year-old Jimmy, inspiring the boy to work harder on his own recovery. Four-Legged Miracles will tug on readers' heartstrings, but it will also discuss common reasons dogs disappear, how to get a missing dog back faster, the dog-human bond, and the science behind some of the amazing journeys these dogs endure. Chock-full of happy endings, Four-Legged Miracles lends insight into dogs' hearts and minds, and is a treat for any animal lover.

I’m more convinced than ever that if you’re going to write a book it must come from deep inside you. I believe that’s so true regarding the writing of any good book, but particularly this volume. While my first published work “The Seer’s House” arrived in one single vision at 3 o’clock in the morning, my second endeavour “Miracle Dog; Miracle God” took a lot longer to emerge. For over ten years following my first publication, I was caught up in the mission field in Romania and literally didn’t have time to write a follow-up. Indeed, only after I’d returned from Romania and been separated from my best friend Snowbell, our Golden Retriever Labrador, did I really begin to accept that another book may be about to be birthed. I couldn’t shake off the writing of this book and so eventually I sat down and wrote it. Nevertheless, “Miracle Dog; Miracle God” hasn’t been the easiest manuscript to create for various reasons. Trying to keep to my subject matter what God the Father taught me about Himself through the love of a dog, when there was so much more to tell about our Romanian endeavours, hasn’t been straightforward. Writing each chapter as a parable was equally challenging, but in the end I think I’ve managed to produce what has been within me since 2008. Finally, the emotion I experienced writing about this remarkable little dog was quite unexpected. On numerous occasions I would have to literally down tools and shed tears, while at other times I laughed out loud and so enjoyed reminiscing about happier moments with Snowbell. My desire is that “Miracle Dog; Miracle God” will make you laugh and cry, yet also instruct you about the amazing unconditional love of God. After all, that’s exactly what happened to me when I was introduced to Snowbell, a beautiful gift from God to my life, if ever there was one.

Miracle Dogs of Portugal leads children on a voyage of discovery to 15th century Portugal, with the almost-true story of Henry the Navigator. When Henry was just a boy he summoned his own courage to take a surprising journey where he meets a delightful cast of characters - Milagro the Miracle Dog, Diego the fisherman, a cadre of sea creatures - and discovers his own dream. This almost-true story of historical figure Henry the Navigator and the history of the Portuguese Water Dog is the first in a historical fiction series for children that explains the periods and characters of world history using dogs as the ambassador to learning. The Miracle Dog series is appropriate for ages 5-10. Though the stories are fiction, the historical accuracy and context is designed to give children both the framework and the motivation to seek out more information about the character and the period in which the story is set, while inspiring them to make miracles in their own lives.

Most people feel that medical personnel put religion aside when we don the mask of our profession. The truth is, though, that's when we need religion the most--when we're face to face with death. Miracles Beyond Medicine is a book comprised of short stories that are based on actual events. The stories bring the staff of emergency rooms and surgical suites to life and prove that we are, after all, just human. These are medical histories as related by hospital personnel who have been a witness to them, either in the hospital setting or in their own lives. Medical staff members are believers because it's impossible to work with patients and not know there is a Higher Being than we mere mortals. These stories illustrate that miracles can, and do, happen to average people more often than you may realize.
