<p><strong>**<em>NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER</em>**</strong></p><p><strong>Her story. His story. The love story of Joey and Rory.</strong></p><p>By inviting so many into the final months of Joey’s life as she battled cancer, Joey and Rory Feek captured hearts around the world with how they handled the diagnosis; the inspiring, simple way they chose to live; and how they loved each other every step of the way. But there is far more to the story.</p><p>“My life is very ordinary,” says Rory. “On the surface, it is not very special. If you looked at it, day to day, it wouldn’t seem like much. But when you look at it in a bigger context—as part of a larger story—you start to see the magic that is on the pages of the book that is my life. And the more you look, the more you see. Or, at least, I do.”</p><p>In this vulnerable book, he takes us for the first time into his own challenging life story and what it was like growing up in rural America with little money and even less family stability.</p><p>This is the story of a man searching for meaning and security in a world that offered neither. And it’s the story of a man who finally gives it all to a power higher than himself and soon meets a young woman who will change his heart forever.</p><p>In <em>This Life I Live</em>, Rory Feek helps us not only to connect more fully to his and Joey’s story but also to our own journeys. He shows what can happen when we are fully open in life’s key moments, whether when meeting our life companion or tackling an unexpected tragedy. He also gives never-before-revealed details on their life together and what he calls “the long goodbye,” the blessing of being able to know that life is going to end and taking advantage of it. Rory shows how we are all actually there already and how we can learn to live that way every day.</p><p>A gifted man from nowhere and everywhere in search of something to believe in. A young woman from the Midwest with an angelic voice and deep roots that just needed a place to be planted. This is their story. Two hearts that found each other and touched millions of other hearts along the way.</p>

<p>“Morbid and illuminating” (Entertainment Weekly)—a young mortician goes behind the scenes of her curious profession.</p><br />Most people want to avoid thinking about death, but Caitlin Doughty—a twenty-something with a degree in medieval history and a flair for the macabre—took a job at a crematory, turning morbid curiosity into her life’s work. Thrown into a profession of gallows humor and vivid characters (both living and very dead), Caitlin learned to navigate the secretive culture of those who care for the deceased.<br /><p><em>Smoke Gets in Your Eyes</em> tells an unusual coming-of-age story full of bizarre encounters and unforgettable scenes. Caring for dead bodies of every color, shape, and affliction, Caitlin soon becomes an intrepid explorer in the world of the dead. She describes how she swept ashes from the machines (and sometimes onto her clothes) and reveals the strange history of cremation and undertaking, marveling at bizarre and wonderful funeral practices from different cultures.</p><br /><p>Her eye-opening, candid, and often hilarious story is like going on a journey with your bravest friend to the cemetery at midnight. She demystifies death, leading us behind the black curtain of her unique profession. And she answers questions you didn’t know you had: Can you catch a disease from a corpse? How many dead bodies can you fit in a Dodge van? What exactly does a flaming skull look like?</p><br /><p>Honest and heartfelt, self-deprecating and ironic, Caitlin's engaging style makes this otherwise taboo topic both approachable and engrossing. Now a licensed mortician with an alternative funeral practice, Caitlin argues that our fear of dying warps our culture and society, and she calls for better ways of dealing with death (and our dead).</p>

<DIV><B>Challenging conventional wisdom on grief, a pioneering therapist offers a new resource for those experiencing loss</B><BR />  <BR /> When a painful loss or life-shattering event upends your world, here is the first thing to know: <I>there is nothing wrong with grief.</I> “Grief is simply love in its most wild and painful form,” says Megan Devine. “It is a natural and sane response to loss.”<BR />  <BR /> So, why does our culture treat grief like a disease to be cured as quickly as possible?<BR />  <BR /> In <I>It’s OK That You’re Not OK, </I>Megan Devine offers a profound new approach to both the experience of grief and the way we try to help others who have endured tragedy. Having experienced grief from both sides—as both a therapist and as a woman who witnessed the accidental drowning of her beloved partner—Megan writes with deep insight about the unspoken truths of loss, love, and healing. She debunks the culturally prescribed goal of returning to a normal, “happy” life, replacing it with a far healthier middle path, one that invites us to build a life alongside grief rather than seeking to overcome it. In this compelling and heartful book, you’ll learn:<BR />  <BR /> • Why well-meaning advice, therapy, and spiritual wisdom so often end up making it harder for people in grief<BR /> • How challenging the myths of grief—doing away with stages, timetables, and unrealistic ideals about how grief should unfold—allows us to accept grief as a mystery to be honored instead of a problem to solve<BR /> • Practical guidance for managing stress, improving sleep, and decreasing anxiety without trying to “fix” your pain<BR /> • How to help the people you love—with essays to teach us the best skills, checklists, and suggestions for supporting and comforting others through the grieving process<BR />  <BR /> Many people who have suffered a loss feel judged, dismissed, and misunderstood by a culture that wants to “solve” grief. Megan writes, “Grief no more needs a solution than love needs a solution.” Through stories, research, life tips, and creative and mindfulness-based practices, she offers a unique guide through an experience we all must face—in our personal lives, in the lives of those we love, and in the wider world.<BR />  <BR /><I>It’s OK That You’re Not OK</I> is a book for grieving people, those who love them, and all those seeking to love themselves—and each other—better.</DIV>

<p>Instead of helping in the aftermath of loss, many of the books and strategies meant to guide us through grief only add to the sadness. No one understands the need for a new approach more than Michelle Steinke-Baumgard, who lost her husband in a tragic plane accident and became a widow overnight. In the darkest moment of her life, the mother of two young children found solace and hope in the unlikeliest of places: exercise. She recorded her journey in her blog, <em>One Fit Widow,</em> and soon had a huge community of devoted followers. Now, Michelle offers her revolutionary solution to grief to everyone struggling with their own loss.</p><p><br /><em>Healthy Healing </em>addresses the physical, mental, and emotional effects of grief in a way that no other book in the category has ever done, offering a 12-week plan that empowers you to work through loss by using the power of exercise and endorphins, and rediscovering happiness by strengthening body, mind and spirit through fitness. And the benefits don’t end there: Exercise helps with poor sleep—a common side effect of trauma—and proper nutrition boosts immunity and fuels you through a busy, stressful time.<em> </em>Michelle dispels common myths about grief and replaces them with relatable advice and actionable inspiration, including:</p><p><br />• Starting with baby steps such as taking a walk or being in nature<br />• Learning to be comfortable with alone time and rediscovering your strength<br />• Pairing your exact circumstances with the right form of exercise, whether it’s gentle yoga to release trapped sadness or intense kickboxing to work through anger<br />• Embracing community and surrounding yourself with support </p><p>This book is an exercise plan, nutrition guide, and, most importantly, a compassionate companion during the most difficult time in your life. With <em>Healthy Healing</em>, you’ll learn how to channel your pain into something productive—and use tragedy as a catalyst for inspired change. </p><p> </p>

<p>“A beautifully written glimpse into heaven that will encourage those who doubt and thrill those who believe.”</p><p>—Ron Hall, coauthor of <em>Same Kind of Different as Me</em></p><p>“Do you remember the hospital, Colton?” Sonja said. “Yes, mommy, I remember,” he said. “That’s where the angels sang to me.”</p><p>When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.</p><p>Colton, not yet four years old, told his parents he left his body during the surgery–and authenticated that claim by describing exactly what his parents were doing in another part of the hospital while he was being operated on. He talked of visiting heaven and relayed stories told to him by people he met there whom he had never met in life, sharing events that happened even before he was born. He also astonished his parents with descriptions and obscure details about heaven that matched the Bible exactly, though he had not yet learned to read.</p><p>With disarming innocence and the plainspoken boldness of a child, Colton tells of meeting long-departed family members. He describes Jesus, the angels, how “really, really big” God is, and how much God loves us. Retold by his father, but using Colton’s uniquely simple words, <em>Heaven Is for Real</em> offers a glimpse of the world that awaits us, where as Colton says, “Nobody is old and nobody wears glasses.”</p><p><em>Heaven Is for Real</em> will forever change the way you think of eternity, offering the chance to see, and believe, like a child.</p>

<p>"Bracing and beautiful . . . Every human should read it." —<em>The New York Times<br /><br /><br /></em>A <em>New York Times Book Review</em> Editors' Choice and 2017 Critics' Pick</p><br /><p>At the age of sixty, Cory Taylor is dying of melanoma-related brain cancer. Her illness is no longer treatable: she now weighs less than her neighbor’s retriever. As her body weakens, she describes the experience—the vulnerability and strength, the courage and humility, the anger and acceptance—of knowing she will soon die.</p><br /><p>Written in the space of a few weeks, in a tremendous creative surge, this powerful and beautiful memoir is a clear-eyed account of what dying teaches: Taylor describes the tangle of her feelings, remembers the lives and deaths of her parents, and examines why she would like to be able to choose the circumstances of her death.</p><br /><p>Taylor’s last words offer a vocabulary for readers to speak about the most difficult thing any of us will face. And while <em>Dying: A Memoir</em> is a deeply affecting meditation on death, it is also a funny and wise tribute to life.</p>

<p><strong>IS IT POSSIBLE THAT GOOD THINGS CAN COME OUT OF OUR BROKEN DREAMS?</strong></p><p>Worship leader and recording artist Laura Story’s life took an unexpected turn when her husband, Martin, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Their lives would never be the same. Yes, with God all things are possible. But the devastating news was that no cure existed to restore Martin’s short-term memory, eyesight, and other complications. The fairy-tale life Laura had dreamed of was no longer possible. And yet in struggling with God about how to live with broken dreams, Laura has found joy and a deeper intimacy with Jesus.</p><p>Laura helps us understand we aren’t the only ones whose lives have taken unexpected turns. She examines the brokenness of some of the heroes of our faith, and shows how despite their flaws and flawed stories, God was able to use them in extraordinary ways. And it was not because of their faith, but because of the faithfulness of their God. God may not fix everything. In fact, although your situation might not ever change or get better, with Jesus <em>you</em> can.</p><p>“Our family has been ministered to by her vulnerability and willingness to walk in the valley and still say ‘God, I Trust You.’”</p><p>— STEVEN CURTIS and MARY BETH CHAPMAN</p><p>Grammy Award-Winning Artist and <em>New York Times</em> Bestselling Author</p><p>“Laura is one of my heroes when it comes to trusting God. She’s joyful, genuine, and faithful even though her story includes messy chapters. ­This book will be on my nightstand for a long time!”</p><p>—LISA HARPER</p><p>Author and Bible Teacher</p><p> </p>
