New York Times Bestselling Author BARBARA DELINSKY FIRST THINGS FIRST From America's beloved storyteller, Barbara Delinsky, comes a classic novel of a woman on the hunt, a man on the run, and one thrillingly romantic hideaway... Chelsea Ross is renowned for her success at locating missing children. But when a wealthy Boston socialite asks her to track down her 40-year-old son, Chelsea is thrown for a loop. The runaway "child" in question, Samuel Prescott London, is a powerful executive who's apparently gone AWOL south of the border. Posing as a tourist, Chelsea manages to find Sam in the outskirts of Cancun—hot, handsome, and happy to be far from the corporate rat race. Chelsea promised Sam's mother she'd bring him back home. But after a few days of playing tourist by his side—and spending nights in his arms—she's not so sure she's ready to give him up...

All proceeds (100%) from the sale of First Things First go to hunger relief organizations, and organizations that rehabilitate wounded veterans. To see a list of these organizations, or to buy hardcopies of First Things First, visit: www.tomiselin.com.Lined with bold messages and practical advice, First Things First (Pelican Lake Press, $25.00, 223 pp.) takes readers on an insightful journey of how to build a high-performance nonprofit. "Too often early stage nonprofits want to do what's convenient, not what's important," says Iselin, who has spent the last 20 years building some of the nation's most innovative nonprofits. "The nonprofit world is filled with passionate people eager to make a difference. Their intentions are noble, but most leaders of early stage nonprofits lack the experience needed to build a quality organization. They tend to take short cuts, penny pinch, and make hasty decisions. The result is costly disruptions, operational migraines, and in some cases, failure."First Things First is a guidebook for leaders of early stage nonprofits (0-6 years old) and small nonprofits (budgets less than $3 million). It focuses on a set of governing principles, operational structures, and practical tactics board members, executives, and managers should adopt and apply early on in their business lifecycle if they are serious about fulfilling their missions and building sustainable nonprofits of superior quality. Each chapter provides a case study example that relates chapter topics to experiences Iselin had during the five years he spent as chief executive at SVAS. Readers see how the SVAS staff and board overcame a host of challenging situations to create a pathway for the organization to develop pioneering programming and effective operations that propelled SVAS to national recognition and acclaim.What makes First Things First different from other "getting started" and "growing your nonprofit" books is that the principles and tactics found in this book are often overlooked and understated, or leaders wait too long to adopt and apply them. Iselin notes, "Seasoned leaders know costly mistakes made early on can have long-term consequences that can derail the dreams and momentum of fulfilling a worthy mission. First Things First shows leaders how to avoid common mistakes and how critical it is to make important decisions early on that might not seem obvious or intuitive."In the book, readers learn how to hire the best staff and nominate the best board members by identifying a set of uncommon attributes. They learn how to efficiently leverage their human capital, how to unravel the mysteries of developing a healthy relationship between board members and a chief executive, how to develop an engaging culture, how to build a brand that captures the attention of national media, how to raise big money from major donors using rarely applied fundraising techniques, how to dodge the traps of "lip service" passion, and much, much more. The book provides dozens of practical tactics and tips that leaders can quickly put into practice. Most importantly, First Things First teaches leaders how to think about the process of building and operating a high-performance nonprofit. They learn how they do what they do is more important than what they do, and just because they can do something doesn't mean they should do it. First Things First is receiving praise for its hard-hitting, yet inspiring analysis. Iselin says what many in the nonprofit industry are too afraid to say. He addresses sensitive issues such as personal accountability and moral obligations, yet his encouraging words and useful advice give readers hope that their nonprofits can become triumphant successes if they are willing to do the right things, right from the start.

The Beatitudes are Jesus cutting to the quick, laying it all out there in its fullness with no pretext or pretense for us to hear, embrace, experience, and follow. They are not just godly parameters by which to pattern your life. They are his heart, his character, and his personality. It is through these relational characteristics, and the principles they develop, that he is inviting us to live our lives. First Things First is a compelling and transformational writing that clearly and comprehensively reveals the Beatitudes as a roadmap for navigating the challenging times in which we live. They are essential and critical biblical teachings and applications for all of life. Brought into today with contemporary examples, they will change your life. What these Beatitudes bring to the table are revolutionary to the twenty-first century. They offer a means of living life that is totally contrary to the collective understanding and the common knowledge of the day. And, if embraced and followed, the Beatitudes bring not only a new perspective but a new manner of living. This is not some new self-help concept, some seven-step model to a new and improved you. To the contrary, this is life as designed and intended by the Creator. First Things First will unlock the strategies hidden within the Beatitudes, strategies needed to build a life with right standing and healthy relationships. A life with true value, purpose, and meaning—directly from the heart of Jesus to you.
