<i>Fading Image</i> focuses on the day to day feelings of a daughter who had no answers in the beginning. As time goes on in the dialogue of the book you will see my growth; emotionally, physically, and spiritually. You will be aware of the love between a mother and a daughter. You will experience love in all areas of life. I will try and answer questions you have if you have an Alzheimer’s sufferer in your life. I will try and guide you through the first steps, second steps and the life after the sufferer has passed. It was not an easy journey for my mom and myself. It was however the most learning experience in my life, the most spiritual, the most telling. <br /><br /><br />Alzheimer’s is a horrific, horrible disease. I don’t even have enough adjectives to describe its intensity on oneself. It can be, at times, sheer torture. Reading my book will help you to laugh at the most disgusting things, help you to realize some things just really don’t matter, and that you will live through this. I promise. <br /><br /><br />I have often said I am not writing <i>Fading Image</i> for fame or fortune. I am writing it so no one will have to feel the way I did when first being told “Your mom is mentally incompetent” … Don’t ever feel alone, ever. Read the book, write down your feelings, feel the love while experiencing our journey, mine and moms. If my book helps you in any way, then I am blessed, that is my fame and fortune. Alzheimer’s versus love. The winner - LOVE.

It was going to be the trip of a lifetime.<br /><br />An enchanting trek through the Guatemalan jungle, viewing the mystical Mayan Ruins, a breath-stealing sunset from atop an ancient temple, a magical entourage of a million fireflies. <br /><br />Then suddenly our wonderful adventure became a nightmare.<br /><br />What followed was a roller coaster of hope and despair that would span the longest days of my life. As we frantically fought for my wife’s life, we found ourselves far from the necessities we took for granted at home. Amid the heartbreaking twists and turns, though, were encounters with brave and selfless people who made a lasting impression during a horrific time. <br /><br />Without Explanation is a true story. It’s a story of anticipated adventure and remarkable courage, of heartache and disbelief, and of hope and fear. And at its very core, it’s at once a life-altering tragedy and a story of love and devotion.

<p><b>The bond between mother and son is strong.</b> Sometimes it overcomes even the chains of death. </p><br /><p>Kathy Andrews was proud of her son, David D’Alo. From the beginning David was special. Whether it was prevailing over a dangerous incarcerated hernia at birth, winning a city-wide art contest in high school, or building a replica of the DeLorean from <i>Back to the Future</i> as an adult, at every turn Kathy knew her son’s life would be remarkable. </p><br /><p>And remarkable it was — as David’s dreams of becoming an animator gelled into an extraordinary adventure of art and energy, especially once he created his star — Boomer Bunny. Boomer was more than a friend, he was David’s outlet, reflecting David’s vitality of creative spirit.</p><br /><p><i><b>Heaven's Animator</b></i> is the story of David and Kathy whose bond birthed Boomer and proved that a family’s love builds not only talent but provides strength for meeting the trials of life. It is also the story of how David’s untimely death did not dissolve the bond of mother and son, but strengthened it. The spiritual journey of mother and son demonstrated that as flesh passed to dust, the astral highways between the living and the dead remained open.</p><br /><br />

A life crisis can be a divorce, disease, the death of a loved one or a devastation of some kind that can completely unravel us. It can also be a mid-life crisis where suddenly we start questioning what we’ve been doing, and how we’ve been living as we feel the undeniable urge calling us to live more deeply and fully. It can cause us to question everything we’ve known and everything that’s been familiar as we struggle to make sense of what happened. It can also cause us to face that fork in the road as we consider next steps and a path different from the one we were on and one that can take us to find our greatest passion and purpose.<br />How can you use this crisis as an opportunity to rebuild your body, mind and life and create something even better than before? The Unshakable Woman will show you how.

Sometimes life just sucks. Period. <br /><br />"Ken Hagler’s Life Sucks Seek God offers a means of recovering intimacy with God in the middle of lives that are often difficult. His hard-won and straightforward guidance resists easy answers to life’s hard places and invites the reader into a conversation with God that might seem impossible in the face of tragic loss and separation. If you are struggling to believe that God can still hear you, this book is a hopeful reminder that God can still hear your prayers."<br />– Frederick W. Schmidt<br />Rueben P. Job Chair in Spiritual Formation at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary and author of The Dave Test: A Raw Look at Real Faith in Hard Times<br /><br />This is a book about honestly facing pain and suffering. No facade. No masks. This is also a book about God and faith. It is about wrestling with the reality of the struggle to hold onto our faith in God when it seems like everything is coming apart. <br /><br />Ken writes about his own journey through “the valley of suck” as caregiver for his wife, Heather, and now a single parent for their children. It is a personal account of wrestling with faith in God and the five soul healing practices which sustained Ken’s faith during and after the death of his wife. While his words speak directly to the struggle of being a caregiver and losing a spouse, Ken addresses the issues many people face when life just seems to suck worse than they imagined. No matter how bad it gets, there is hope and a way forward.<br /><br />"Life Sucks Seek God" is broken into two parts. The first chapters deal with the realities of life and a few of the common ways of understanding just who God is based on God’s revelations to us. The second part of the book deals with the five soul-healing habits or “faith-hacks.” Ken breaks down the five practices of faith used to sustain the soul during one of the most difficult times of anyone’s life. These five habits are:<br /><br />1. Five Minutes With God Each Day<br />2. If You Really Want To Keep Your Faith: Use a Cheat Sheet<br />3. Know Yourself By Keeping a Journal<br />4. Don’t Just Read The Bible More - Read The Right Parts<br />5. Talk With God and Keep It Simple<br /><br />If you are a caregiver, in grief, suffering a job loss, facing a broken relationship, or just generally wrestling with issues becoming too much to bear, then "Life Sucks Seek God" is the best book to help you shore up your faith in difficult times or to lay a foundation for faith and hope.

<b>From Facebook’s COO and Wharton’s top-rated professor, the #1 <i>New York Times</i> best-selling authors of <i>Lean In </i>and <i>Originals:</i> a powerful, inspiring, and practical book about building resilience and moving forward after life’s inevitable setbacks.</b><br />  <br /> After the sudden death of her husband, Sheryl Sandberg felt certain that she and her children would never feel pure joy again. “I was in ‘the void,’” she writes, “a vast emptiness that fills your heart and lungs and restricts your ability to think or even breathe.” Her friend Adam Grant, a psychologist at Wharton, told her there are concrete steps people can take to recover and rebound from life-shattering experiences. We are not born with a fixed amount of resilience. It is a muscle that everyone can build. <br /> <i> Option B </i>combines Sheryl’s personal insights with Adam’s eye-opening research on finding strength in the face of adversity. Beginning with the gut-wrenching moment when she finds her husband, Dave Goldberg, collapsed on a gym floor, Sheryl opens up her heart—and her journal—to describe the acute grief and isolation she felt in the wake of his death. But <i>Option B </i>goes beyond Sheryl’s loss to explore how a broad range of people have overcome hardships including illness, job loss, sexual assault, natural disasters, and the violence of war. Their stories reveal the capacity of the human spirit to persevere . . . and to rediscover joy.<br /> Resilience comes from deep within us and from support outside us. Even after the most devastating events, it is possible to grow by finding deeper meaning and gaining greater appreciation in our lives. <i>Option B </i>illuminates how to help others in crisis, develop compassion for ourselves, raise strong children, and create resilient families, communities, and workplaces. Many of these lessons can be applied to everyday struggles, allowing us to brave whatever lies ahead. Two weeks after losing her husband, Sheryl was preparing for a father-child activity. “I want Dave,” she cried. Her friend replied, “Option A is not available,” and then promised to help her make the most of Option B.<br /> We all live some form of Option B. This book will help us all make the most of it.
