In this twenty-first century, our pastors are dying, churches are splitting, leaders are being exposed and ridiculed, and marriages and relationships are being destroyed-all because no one wants to die to self in order to serve. As I once did, have you ever thought about quitting and throwing in the towel because helping others has taken a toll on you? Have you ever felt like your life didn't matter, but you knew that God gave you a promise? Have you ever been hurt while trying to do what God called you to do? Have you felt like others have taken you for granted? Helping You is Killing Me will encourage you to hold on to your promise and cling to your dream, vision, and purpose. Don't quit. Don't leave. Don't stop pushing. Don't stop serving. Most importantly, don't step outside of God's will for your life. This is a test! Pastor Everett and his family moved to the central Florida area in 2005 from Atlanta, Georgia, after serving in ministry for more than 19 years at New Birth Church, where Bishop Eddie L. Long is the Senior Pastor and Trinity Chapel Church of God, where Bishop Jim Bolin is the Senior Pastor. He currently serves as the Executive and Worship Pastor at Celebration of Praise Church in Clermont, Florida, where Bishop Chris Dutruch is the Senior Pastor. In addition to serving as the Executive and Worship Pastor, Everett and his wife, Kateena, serve as the Marriage Ministry Directors. In 2001, Everett released his first CD, titled "I Am Yours." In 2008, he was appointed to serve as Chairman for the Church of God State Music Board for the state of Florida. He and his wife, Kateena, are the proud parents of Alexis, Kendra, and Everett Emmanuel.

As seen on 20/20, The Early Show, and ABC World News Tonight Americans love a hard worker. The man or woman who works eighteen-hour days and eats his or her meals on the run between appointments is usually viewed with a combination of respect and awe. But for many, this lifestyle leads to family problems, a decline in work productivity, and ultimately to physical and mental collapse. Chained to the Desk, best-selling author and widely respected family therapist Bryan E. Robinson’s groundbreaking book, originally published in 1998, was the first comprehensive portrait of the workaholic. Thousands benefited from this innovative book, which profiles the myths behind this greatly misunderstood disorder and the inner psychological battle that work addicts wage against themselves. Intended for anyone touched by what Robinson calls “the best-dressed problem of the twenty-first century,” the author also provides an inside look into the impact on those who live and work with them —partners, spouses, children, and colleagues—as well as the appropriate techniques for clinicians who treat them. In this new and updated edition, Robinson portrays the many different kinds of workaholism, drawing on hundreds of case reports from his own original research and years of clinical practice. From California to the Carolinas, men and women tell of their agonizing bouts with workaholism and the devastations left in its wake, struggles made all the more challenging in a world where the computer, cell phone, and Blackberry allow twenty-four-hour access to the office, even on weekends and from vacation spots. Adult children of workaholics describe their childhood pain and the lifelong legacies they still carry, and the spouses or partners of workaholics reveal the isolation and loneliness of their vacant relationships. Employers and business colleagues discuss the cost to the company when workaholism dominates the workplace. Chained to the Desk both counsels and consoles. It provides a step-by-step guide to help readers spot workaholism, understand it, and recover. Robinson presents strategies for workaholics and their loved ones on how to cope, and for people in the workplace on how to distinguish between work efficiency and workaholism.

A journalist searches for the true story of his glamorous sibling's death. When rock star J. C. Tripper died, only his brother Lee was by his side, and in the decades since, Lee has been deviled by questions of what really happened that night in Tangier. He thinks he knows the truth, but his recollection of that final drug-soaked bender is about to be called into question. An old acquaintance mails Lee a Nazi pistol and four Polaroid pictures of a dead body -- an invitation to reopen a long-cold murder investigation. Lee then reconnects with Sam Innis, onetime best friend to the brothers Tripper, who urges him to track down J.C.'s former bandmates and music industry contacts. That night, Lee's girlfriend, a bestselling conspiracy theorist, is tortured to death in her tub. As his brother comes back to haunt him, Lee must unravel the mystery of J.C.'s last days, or risk joining him behind the velvet rope at the great after-party in the sky.
