In each case, a team was assembled with people equipped in the various areas needed to bring the vision to pass. Pat addresses team assembly, dynamics, and pitfalls to give readers guidance they can immediately apply to their own circumstances. Everyone is looking for ways to be more successful in life.

Would you like to do your part in saving America? Grass Roots is a no-nonsense instruction manual that explains exactly what you can do. Scott Hennen--host and founder of the innovative Common Sense Club radio program--shows how everyday Americans just like you are making a difference for our country's future. This down-to-earth handbook gives you clear, practical, effective actions you can take to preserve the American dream for your children and grandchildren. President Ronald Reagan once said, "All great change in America begins at the dinner table." Today, most Americans struggle just to keep food on the dinner table. We are staggering under a crushing burden of big government, out-of-control spending, and towering federal debt. We have become tax slaves--and the people we sent to Washington to represent us are the very ones who sold us there. We're angry--and rightly so. But ruling-class politicians have shrugged off our grassroots anger, calling it "Astroturf." We're tired of being ignored, patronized, and lied to by the very people who are supposed to be our "public servants." Not since the original Boston Tea Party of 1773 have so many everyday Americans participated in such a significant display of righteous indignation and freedom-loving patriotism. For the first time in generations, ordinary hardworking, church-going Americans are carrying signs, gathering in large numbers, and making their voices heard. Big government, beware. A sleeping giant has awakened. Scott Hennen has drawn up a practical blueprint for change, a handbook for all of us who are ready to roll up our sleeves and do our part to restore America's goodness--and greatness. Grass Roots is a political manifesto for every American who loves liberty and cares enough to get involved.
An inspiring biography of one of the most influential and beloved figures of the 21st century, Walt Disney, based on more than a thousand interviews.
"I know in my heart that man is good. That what is right will always eventually triumph. And there's purpose and worth to each and every life." -Ronald ReaganNoted political commentator Michael Reagan, the son of Ronald Reagan and first wife Jane Wyman, has traveled across America, giving speeches and meeting the public. Time and time again, people tell him how much they love and miss his father, and what his presidency meant to them. In a world where role models are few and far between, Ronald Reagan's legacy stands strong.In Lessons My Father Taught Me, Michael Reagan looks back over his years with his father and reflects on what he has learned from the greatest man he has ever known-and one of the greatest men the world has known.When Michael was growing up, his father would drive him out to his ranch. There Ronald Reagan taught Michael how to ride a horse, how to shoot a gun, and much more. As they drove together or did chores together, Michael's father told him stories and taught him about life, love, family, faith, success, and leadership. Michael didn't fully appreciate those lessons at the time, but years later he remembered-and he understood.Now, Michael Reagan shares his father's wisdom and experience in this inspiring book.
The challenges and threats we as a nation face today are eerily similar to the conditions in the world before the beginning of the Reagan era. In his famous 1976 speech at the Republican National Convention, Ronald Reagan helped define a way forward and strengthened the Republican Party. As we stand at a crossroad once again, we are fortunate to have a blueprint for restoring America's greatness. Reagan has given us the principles to succeed. This book is not merely a diagnosis of our nation's ills, but a prescription to heal our nation, rooted in the words and principles of Ronald Reagan. In these pages, Michael Reagan shares the plan his father developed over years of study, observation, and reflection. It is the plan he announced to the nation, straight from his heart, one summer evening during America's 200th year. It's the plan he put into action during his eight years in office as one of the most effective presidents of the 20th century, and it is the plan we can use today to help return America to its former greatness, soundness, and prosperity.
