On March 11, 2011 the fourth strongest earthquake in recorded history struck Japan. Within thirty minutes a monstrous tsunami pounded her northeastern shores, reducing towns to splinters and leaving 20,000 loved ones dead or missing. Two days later, fifty miles from my family and my home, the reactors at the Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant began to explode. For the sake and safety of my two young sons there was no decision to be made. Just get them away from Fukushima. For myself, the choice was much less clear. How can I run away when so people, right down the road, are in such dire need - of food, of shelter, of the helping, caring hands of another human being? The urgency of the moment made it impossible to do both - and left me feeling capable of neither. In circumstances beyond anyone's imagination those around me quietly endured. From the eerie calm after the shaking stopped and through countless aftershocks, in the face and the aftermath of a 30-foot wall of water, in the infancy of a disaster no one could yet fathom my adoptive neighbors went to task with calm determination and immutable grace, allowing me to begin to truly understand the resilience of the Japanese spirit. And understand, for better or for worse, just what kind of man I've become. This book is dedicated to the memory of those lost and the courage of the affected who remain.
"FATED . . . but I never wanted to be a teacher" has been likened to James Herriot (All Creatures Great and Small) meets Brian Glover (the P.E. Teacher in Kes) It is an HILARIOUS comic autobiography about the trials and tribulations of a young teacher who endured twenty years working in Cleveland schools. As a youngster, James Masters hadn't the slightest intention of going to university, and at eighteen had already taken out the forms to become a Physical Training Officer in the RAF. Through a number mishaps and coincidences he qualified as a teacher, but still unsure that this really was the job for him, attempted to leave on three separate occasions: - but, he kept being thrown back like a boomerang (or was that a bad penny?) The book has previously been distributed as an ebook through Amazon, where up to now it has received eleven reviews and rated 4.8 stars (one of the reviewers claiming that the grammar wasn't very good!) The Author agrees! - but it was never intended to rival Dickens or Shakespeare, just to be funny and easy to read. I think it more than achieves these objectives!!! This is what some of the other readers say: - Michael B: - "An interesting account of a young teacher in 70's / 80's North East England. . . it's an easy read and once I'd dipped into it simply had to read from cover to cover. Go James, look forward to the next!" Sue C: - " A master piece, . . . written up so well......giggling from start to finish....absolutely the best [money] I've spent in a long time..." Axel: - "Cracking entertainment. Brought me right back to my school days. Mind you........... I did go to one of the schools featured in the book!!" John P: - "An entertaining journey! A very warming, funny, and thought-provoking read. Brought back fond memories . . . Looking forward to reading more." W. Lidster: - "A Must Read. A fun & compelling read, that all former pupils of "Hawksmount" School ought to read!!! It's understandable, but a shame, that names had to be changed lol!!!" Karen T: - "Loved reading this book. Brought back loads of memories....Good times" And finally, John R: - You should most certainly think about a follow up to your book. . . . Clever writing it gripped me. . . . I laughed, I cried. What a good read.

May these lessons that God taught me about raising my own son, expand your understanding of The Heavenly Father's great love for you. As you pray the prayers in this book may God's love surround you and change your life forever. Did you know "Abba Father" means Daddy the parent? Did you know Abba Father delights in your success? Did you know Abba Father is easy to talk to? Did you know Abba Father will not embarrass you? Excerpt..."Even as a baby, my son could make certain choices. For example, he could choose to eat his oatmeal, spit it out, or wear the bowl on his head." HOWEVER, EACH OF THESE CHOICES AT MEAL TIME BROUGHT DIFFERENT "RESPONSES" FROM ME AS THE PARENT. JUST LIKE ABBA FATHER. For over 30 years teacher/author Roberta L. "Bobbie" Powers has been writing books and materials that encourage and help the Body of Christ. Her Bible based books and various teaching materials are used by churches, women's groups, pastors, evangelists, missionaries, and laymen worldwide.
