Do you know that you are a loved child, an heir, of the king and creator of the universe? How does this identity shape how you live your life each day? At work, home or school, Tamara Buchan offers a fresh and intriguing perspective that brings freedom, and a lifestyle based on faith rather than fear, to the nitty gritty of everyday living. Discover a new what the Bible says about who you are and God who loves you.

Witty and wildly imaginative, Identity Crisis will take you on a journey through biblical accounts, individuals' stories and personal revelation and reflection to a deeper more fulfilling grasp of your true identity. Begin today living abundantly with the purpose, authority and inheritance God intends for you, your community and your world.

Tamara's hope is that Identity Crisis: Reclaim the True You! will help everyone who reads it to discover their god-given identity which will give them the foundation to move towards living the purpose for which they were created. The reflection questions & experiences are designed to take the reader deeper into the discovery; the learning process will take place at a much deeper level. A teen and children's version is also in the works. You can learn more about Tamara by reading her full bio here.

Identity Crisis is written to help people discover the truth of who we are. People are in an identity crisis because they have allowed the world or themselves to define their identity and ultimately that keeps us from becoming
the people we were created to be, and living the meaningful life of purpose that our Creator formed us to live.

Publisher's Price $17.95

Are you a typical believer who will die without leading a single person to Jesus? Or will you live missionally and change someone's eternity?

Real-life stories and in-depth discussion present the components of a missional life lived for Jesus. Simple steps and practices to help any leader become an agent in God's missional revolution. Each chapter provides reflection questions to transfer the missional concepts into action. Accessible and compelling, this message calls leaders and mature Christians to live and lead missionally according to their wiring—modeled after Jesus' life on earth.


What People are Saying

The Story Lives is the "story of stories" —how they work and how they can work for us—in readable, pastorally-sensitive, and personal prose. In the heart of God's Story is our story and at the heart of our story is the missional summons to enter into God's Story in this world—and The Story Lives will draw you into both God's Story and your story. Well done!

The Dao of Donuts

“The Dao of Donuts” can be described as Krispy Kremes for a hungry woman’s soul. Berny Dohrman  Author, Visionary, Founder and Chairman of CEO Space calls it a “hug in a book”. It is the first bite in a banquet of books to inspire, uplift, and empower the reader to follow her personal path of divinity. It is a celebration of women and our shared experience.

In many cultures from the time of birth men are taught their worth and women are taught their place. This mindset contributes to rampant abuse in our societies and homes through out the world. In order to change this mentality, we must first start with ourselves. The Dao of Donuts is a call for each of us to define and declare our  worth. We must take responsibility for our lives; we must be the best example of how others should treat us.

Who is the book for? Women who have lost their “self”; who are wondering where they are in the equation of wife, mother, daughter and or professional. It’s for sisters who if asked to list people who are important to them, don’t even think to include  themselves on the list. It’s for men who love and honor women and the important role we play in the spiritual evolution of this planet. It is for anyone who is yearning for permission to be worthy of their existence and to live their dreams. This book is for you.

The Adventures of One Woman's Walk Around the World

On August 1, 1999, Polly Letofsky left her home in Vail, Colorado, and headed west. She traveled across 4 continents, 22 countries, and over 14,000 miles—by foot—to become the first American woman to walk around the world.

As an awareness campaign for breast cancer, survivors and well-wishers around the world came out to walk with her. Every day strangers welcomed her into their homes and shared meals. Across four continents she had dinner conversations with poets, politicians, country singers, olive growers, pig farmers and the female bomb maker in Australia. The world had embraced her.

But in the middle of Polly’s five-year journey, the world suddenly shifted on its axis when September 11 flung us all into a crossroads in world history.

Polly’s GlobalWalk has been featured in over 2,000 newspapers, magazines, radio and television stations around the world including Good Housekeeping, CNN International, The CBS Early Show, NBC’s Your Total Health, and Fine Living Channel’s Radical Sabbatical. A documentary “Polly’s GlobalWalk” has recently been released by Newcastle Productions.

To rapt audiences, she richly details her journey with humor and honest reflection, the good times and the hardships. She tells of how she took on the challenge of a life-long dream and learned quickly how to adapt to a swiftly changing world and to always live on the edge of her comfort zone.

Sometimes serious, sometimes funny, always inspirational, Polly’s program personifies the spirit of commitment and perseverance that will compel you to conquer life’s challenges—one step at a time.
