Howard Publishing's Spring 2005 releases will include, among others, titles by a well-known recording artist, a familiar actress and award-winning authors.

Headlining Howard's lineup is Sandi Patty's new book "Broken on the Back Row." A heart-touching narrative, Patty tells the story of her long road to restoration-from her years as an acclaimed recording artist balancing her role as a mother of four, to her fall from public acclaim, and the steps she worked through with her church and pastor to find forgiveness and peace-all under the harsh glare of national media attention.

Lisa Whelchel, known for her role as "Blair" on the sitcom "The Facts of Life" will serve as spokesperson for The Motherhood Club, an innovative new resource center for moms. Along with "The Busy Mom's Guide to Prayer" by Whelchel, The Motherhood Club will include an array of Christian living, fiction, and gift-book titles, as well as future plans for a Web site with chat rooms, a book club, annual events, contests, e-newsletters, and more.

Rounding out this high-profile list, the late Bill Bright and award-winning author Jack Cavanaugh take the Holy Spirit to trial in "Proof," the first fiction title in the four-book Great Awakening series.

Other notable titles in Howard's spring lineup include: "The Power of a Positive Teen," the fifth book in Karol Ladd's popular Power of a Positive series; "The Connected Family" by David and Claudia Arp; "The Total Temple Makeover," a 12-week program for turning your body into a temple you can rejoice in, by Dr. Gregory Jantz; "Becoming Real" by one of the nation's most innovative storytellers, Steven James; "Fateful Journeys," the second book in Gary Parker's Southern Tides trilogy; and "Saving Grace," Denise Hunter's sequel to "Mending Places."
