<p><b>An emotional, revealing memoir of one family’s life in seclusion—and the love, strength, and faith it took to save it.</b></p><p>Seahawks star running back Curt Warner and his wife, Ana, were prominent figures in Seattle in the early 1990s. When they dropped from the public eye after Curt’s retirement, everyone assumed it was for a simpler life. But the reality behind their seclusion was a secret they hid from even their closest friends: their twins, Austin and Christian, had been diagnosed with severe autism. What followed was a painful struggle to hold their family and their marriage together in a home filled with chaos, emotional exhaustion, and constant fear for the safety of their unpredictable but beloved boys.</p><p>Now, after years of silence, the Warners share their inspiring journey from stardom and success to heartbreaking self-imposed isolation. Above all, it’s a story of the life-changing truth that love for family and each other—no matter how challenged—is the path to healing and peace.</p><p><i>The Warner Boys</i> is the true story of a family who fought for their children and how they grew stronger against all odds.</p>

<b><b><i>New York Times </i>bestseller! The long-awaited book by the founder of the enormously popular Bullet Journal® planner, journal, calendar, and all-around organizational system.<br /></b></b><br />For years Ryder Carroll tried countless organizing systems, online and off, but none of them fit the way his mind worked. Out of sheer necessity, he developed a method called the Bullet Journal that helped him become consistently focused and effective. When he started sharing his system with friends who faced similar challenges, it went viral. Just a few years later, to his astonishment, Bullet Journaling is a global movement. <br /><br /><i>The Bullet Journal Method</i> is about much more than organizing your notes and to-do lists. It's about what Carroll calls "intentional living": weeding out distractions and focusing your time and energy in pursuit of what's truly meaningful, in both your work and your personal life. It's about spending more time with what you care about, by working on fewer things. His new book shows you how to...<br /><br />  <b>*</b>  <b>Track the past: </b>Using nothing more than a pen and paper, create a clear and comprehensive record of your thoughts.<br /><br />  <b>*</b>  <b>Order the present:</b> Find daily calm by tackling your to-do list in a more mindful, systematic, and productive way.<br /><br />  <b>*</b>  <b>Design the future:</b> Transform your vague curiosities into meaningful goals, and then break those goals into manageable action steps that lead to big change. <br /><br />Carroll wrote this book for frustrated list-makers, overwhelmed multitaskers, and creatives who need some structure. Whether you've used a Bullet Journal for years or have never seen one before, <i>The Bullet Journal Method</i> will help you go from passenger to pilot of your own life.

<DIV>#1 New York Times bestseller<BR />  <BR /> With a new afterword<BR /><BR /><B>Now a Major Motion Picture</B><BR /> Starring Steve Carell * Timothée Chalamet * Maura Tierney * and Amy Ryan<BR /><BR />  “A brilliant, harrowing, heartbreaking, fascinating story, full of beautiful moments and hard-won wisdom. This book will save a lot of lives and heal a lot of hearts.” — Anne Lamott<BR /><BR /> “‘When one of us tells the truth, he makes it easier for all of us to open our hearts to our own pain and that of others.’ That’s ultimately what <I>Beautiful Boy</I> is about: truth and healing.” — Mary Pipher, author of <I>Reviving Ophelia</I><BR />  <BR /> What had happened to my beautiful boy? To our family? What did I do wrong? Those are the wrenching questions that haunted David Sheff’s journey through his son Nic’s addiction to drugs and tentative steps toward recovery. Before Nic became addicted to crystal meth, he was a charming boy, joyous and funny, a varsity athlete and honor student adored by his two younger siblings. After meth, he was a trembling wraith who lied, stole, and lived on the streets. David Sheff traces the first warning signs: the denial, the three a.m. phone calls—is it Nic? the police? the hospital? His preoccupation with Nic became an addiction in itself. But as a journalist, he instinctively researched every treatment that might save his son. And he refused to give up on Nic.<BR />  <BR /> “Filled with compelling anecdotes and important insights . . . An eye-opening memoir.” — <I>Washington Post</I></DIV>

<p>From the <em>New York Times</em> bestselling author of <em>Bad Feminist</em>: a searingly honest memoir of food, weight, self-image, and learning how to feed your hunger while taking care of yourself.</p><p><em>“I ate and ate and ate in the hopes that if I made myself big, my body would be safe. I buried the girl I was because she ran into all kinds of trouble. I tried to erase every memory of her, but she is still there, somewhere. . . . I was trapped in my body, one that I barely recognized or understood, but at least I was safe.”</em></p><p>In her phenomenally popular essays and long-running Tumblr blog, Roxane Gay has written with intimacy and sensitivity about food and body, using her own emotional and psychological struggles as a means of exploring our shared anxieties over pleasure, consumption, appearance, and health. As a woman who describes her own body as “wildly undisciplined,” Roxane understands the tension between desire and denial, between self-comfort and self-care. In <em>Hunger,</em> she explores her past—including the devastating act of violence that acted as a turning point in her young life—and brings readers along on her journey to understand and ultimately save herself.</p><p>With the bracing candor, vulnerability, and power that have made her one of the most admired writers of her generation, Roxane explores what it means to learn to take care of yourself: how to feed your hungers for delicious and satisfying food, a smaller and safer body, and a body that can love and be loved—in a time when the bigger you are, the smaller your world becomes.</p>

<b>In the Garden of Eden, there was only one "No." Everything else was "Yes."</b><br /><br />In this short book on childrearing, Douglas Wilson points out that we have a Father who delights in us and makes it easy for us to love and obey him. If that is the kind of Father we have, shouldn't we earthly parents do the same? Wilson explains how parents should not just try to get their kids to obey a set of rules or to make their house so fun that following the rules is always easy. Instead, he calls for parents to instill in their kids a love for God and His standards that will serve them well all their days.<br /><br />This book also features an appendix in which Doug and his wife Nancy answer various parents' questions about various applications of the principles discussed in this book.
