A Noelle for Nathan (Andersen Brothers Book 3)15 by Pat SimmonsA Noelle for Nathan: A Heartwarming Christian Christmas Romance (Andersen Brothers Book 3) by:Pat Simmons
A Noelle for Nathan is a story of kindness, selflessness, and falling in love during the Christmas season.

Andersen Investors & Consultants, LLC, CFO Nathan Andersen (A Christian Christmas) isn’t looking for attention when he buys a homeless man a meal, but grade school teacher Noelle Foster is watching his every move with admiration. His generosity makes him a man after her own heart.

While donors give more to children and families in need around the holiday season, Noelle Foster believes in giving year-round after seeing many of her students struggle with hunger and finding a warm bed at night.

At a second-chance meeting, sparks fly when Noelle and Nathan share a kindred spirit with their passion to help those less fortunate. Whether they’re doing charity work or attending Christmas parties, the couple becomes inseparable. Although Noelle and Nathan exchange gifts, the biggest present is the one from Christ.

One reader says, “A Noelle for Nathan makes you fall in love with love…the love of mankind and the love of God. You cannot read this without having a desire to give and do more, all while being appreciative for what you have.”

Dark Space by Mario GoodenDark Space: Architecture, Representation, Black Identity by:Mario Gooden
This collection of essays by architect Mario Gooden investigates the construction of African American identity and representation through the medium of architecture. These five texts move between history, theory, and criticism to explore a discourse of critical spatial practice engaged in the constant reshaping of the African Diaspora. African American cultural institutions designed and constructed in recent years often rely on cultural stereotypes, metaphors, and clichés to communicate significance, demonstrating “Africanisms” through form and symbolism―but there is a far richer and more complex heritage to be explored. Presented here is a series of questions that interrogate and illuminate other narratives of “African American architecture,” and reveal compelling ways of translating the philosophical idea of the African Diaspora’s experience into space.
