"I hope the next PD is better..."
In Sweet Freedom, Sarah Palin invites you to draw strength and inspiration from 260 meditations based on guiding Biblical verses. You are not alone in your doubts and anxieties - we all bear the burdens of everyday stresses, and for most of us, our concerns spread beyond our selves to our families, communities, and country. But Palin shows that with abiding faith, and by opening ourselves to the truths that have saved mankind for generations, we can thrive - and experience true freedom.
In this eagerly anticipated memoir, Palin paints an intimate portrait of growing up in the wilds of Alaska; meeting her lifelong love; her decision to enter politics; the importance of faith and family; and the unique joys and trials of life as a high-profile working mother. She also opens up for the first time about the 2008 presidential race, providing a rare, mom's-eye view of high-stakes national politics - from patriots dedicated to "Country First" to slick politicos bent on winning at any cost.
At a time when Christian values are challenged - when the greeting “Merry Christmas” has been replaced by the supposedly less offensive “Happy Holidays” - Governor Sarah Palin makes the case for bringing back the freedom to express the religious spirit of the season. In Good Tidings and Great Joy, she discusses one of Christianity’s most sacred celebrations, and how the holiday has been robbed of its meaning and true tradition by the pressures of political correctness.
"Great Book from an outstanding Conservative Woman"
America by Heart is a highly personal testament to Sarah Palin's deep love of country, her strong roots in faith, and her profound appreciation of family. The book includes brief readings from classic and contemporary works that have moved and inspired her, as well as other Americans, both famous and obscure, whom she admires.
"Another excellent book by Sarah"
We may think we know Sarah Palin from all the coverage she has received in the political arena, but one-side depictions but media coverage is limited and, Sarah would even say, biased. Our Sarah is also a bit biased since it's written by Sarah's dad and brother with contributions from many friends and colleagues - these are the people who know her - and love her - best. Here are intimate stories from Sarah's life along with a celebration of growing up in and sharing all that Alaska means to Sarah and her family.
