<b>An incredible story about the resiliency of the human spirit that will change the way you see life.</b><br />An Illusion of Normal is the riveting and award-winning memoir of the life of a child whose mother suffers from paranoid schizophrenia. At times shocking and heartbreaking, the author’s story reveals the darkness in a home tormented by a parent’s mental illness and the light that shows her the way out.<br />In an era when speaking of mental illness was taboo, the author learns from an early age not to talk about her mother’s bizarre behavior. Now her mother’s escape from a would-be killer threatens to expose the family secret. They are not a normal family. After her mother’s extended stays in mental institutions, the author accepts that her Mom will never be normal. That, she assumes, makes her abnormal as well. She wrestles against her father’s abuse and constant shaming of her, her faith, and her friends. Will she ever feel normal in an abnormal family? Did God make a mistake? Why is she in a home where she doesn’t feel loved and accepted? Is there a way for her to break away from the shame that holds her captive?<br />An inspirational story for anyone searching for hope to overcome life’s most difficult trials. <br />In a time when stop the stigma should be screamed from every mountain, the author tells the truth. The truth about mental illness. The truth about how it affects those who are sick as well as their families. We put pink ribbons on everything from pens to socks to bumper stickers to declare the importance of understanding breast cancer. It is time we give the same attention to mental illness—Eva Marie Everson, best-selling author, The Bipolar Experience<br />

Distinguished pediatrician Dr Robert Bucknam, M.D. and co-author Gary Ezzo are two of the world’s leading experts on infant management concepts. In this revised 5th edition, they have updated their groundbreaking approach which has found favor with over six million parents in all 50 states and has been translated into 16 languages around the world.<br /><br />For over 20 years, On Becoming Babywise has been the de facto newborn parenting manual for naturally synchronizing your baby’s feeding time, waketime and nighttime sleep cycles, so the whole family can sleep through the night.<br /><br />The authors demonstrate how order and stability are mutual allies of every newborn’s metabolism and how parents can take advantage of these biological propensities. In particular, they note how an infant’s body responds to the influences of parental routine or the lack thereof.<br /><br />Early chapters start with explorations of everyday aspects of infant management such as the three basic elements of daytime activities for newborns: feeding time, waketime, and naptime. <br /><br />Practical discussions then focus on broad and niche topics including feeding philosophies, baby sleep problems, baby scheduling challenges, nap routines, sleep training multiples, baby sleeping props, Colic and Reflux and many other dimensions which impact breast feeding schedules, bottle feeding tips and baby sleep training.<br /><br />Five resource Appendixes provide additional reference material:<br /><br />1) Taking care of baby and mom<br />2) A timeline of what to expect and when<br />3) Baby Sleep Training Problems and Solutions<br />4) Monitoring Your Baby’s Growth<br />5) Healthy Baby Growth Charts<br /><br />On Becoming Babywise is more than an infant-management concept. It is a mindset for successful parenthood. It can help any parent develop a plan that meets both the needs of a new baby and of the entire family. These principles have worked for millions of parents and, when applied with common sense to your unique situation, can work wonderfully for you too! Recommended by doctors across the country.

"Angels for Higher" chronicles the joyfully inspirational journey of Robert Hendershot, a recovering alcoholic, and his son Trevor, who has Down syndrome, as they seek God's will for their lives. <br /><br />The practical lessons God taught Robert in his recovery have helped him to become a better father to Trevor, and vice versa, the spiritual lessons God taught him as Trevor's dad have helped him to remain sober for over twenty years. <br /><br />At the beginning of Trevor's freshman year he was bullied, called names and told he was worthless. Nevertheless, at the start of his senior year, the faculty drafted Trevor onto the homecoming court, and then his classmates elected him Homecoming King in the greatest landslide in his high school's history--he received more votes than the other four candidates combined. <br /><br />Trevor was also told that the best job he could every hope for would be folding towels in the basement of a hotel laundromat. However, after graduating, in 2012 he first was hired by Major League Baseball's Los Angeles Angels, and then in 2013 by the National Hockey League's Anaheim Ducks to be the Greeter in their respective Team Stores. Trevor is still known, admired and often loved hundreds of thousands of sports fans, fellow employees and professional athletes.<br /><br />Robert and Trevor are in the process of forming a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, Angels for Higher, to help facilitate the "Trevorizing" of additional stadiums and arenas. Their mission is to encourage the hiring of individuals with Down syndrome, like Trevor, to work as greeters (and pro-life ambassadors) at sports venues across the USA, North America and ultimately around the world. Their vision is to transform the pro-life, special needs culture of the world...one sports stadium at a time. <br /><br />"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine..." (Ephesians 3:20)

<h1>“Budget" - it's a meager little word, one that all too often comes after <b>“tight”...</b></h1><br /><br /><h3><b><i>>>> 16 ADDITIONAL BOOKS</i></b><i> INCLUDED! - <b>LIMITED TIME OFFER!<<<</b></i></h3><br /><br />... Maybe you think of this word as an adjective, something to describe a cheap and substandard car or hotel. “Budget” brings to mind rationing, a kind of <b>money diet</b>. <br /><br />If you're like many people, budgeting is something you do with a kind of <b>deflated spirit</b>: budgeting means <b>bargain bin quality</b> and the sad sense that what you want is going to be just <b>out of reach</b>.<br /><br /><b>This book will try a different approach to budgeting all together.</b><br /><br />This book will offer an <b>expanded notion</b> of what it means to budget. We'll look at how money is <b>not the only resource that needs to be managed</b>, and a “life budget” that acknowledges your emotional, behavioral, social and even spiritual capital is <b>more likely to lead to smarter decisions</b>.<br /><br />We'll explore shopping and spending habits, identify problem areas, think about debt and make achievable goals for home, work and more. We'll look at <b>concrete ways</b> to put some of these principles into <b>action</b>, and look at resources that will keep you <b>focused and motivated</b>. <br /><br />At the same time, this book is also about the philosophy of minimalism, not thriftiness. If you can pair your budget plan with a more nuanced understanding of your relationship with money and how it ties into how you want to live, the changes you make will be more <b>authentic</b> and longer lasting.<br /><br />Minimalism is not about doing with less than you need. Rather, it's about finding <b>what you need</b> and fulfilling that need exactly, <b>without excess</b>. It's a subtle and easily overlooked point: to have exactly enough is not suffering. Budgeting is therefore about understanding what you need to have enough, and how best you can allocate your resources to that end.<br /><br /><b>Life is short</b>. Money and material things can make our time on this earth better, and they can help us move closer to what we find meaningful and worthwhile. But they are <b>not</b> meaningful and worthwhile in themselves. <br /><br />Money is a <b>tool</b> and how we spend it is an <b>expression of our values</b> and what we think is important. How much would you pay for <b>peace of mind</b> and the calm you get from knowing you are <b>living well</b>? How much of your life do you give away when you work? Of all your expenses, have you remembered to include the time you waste <b>stressing</b> about money?<br /><br />These may seem like vague or overly philosophical questions, but they get to the <b>root</b> of how we earn, spend and think of money. Once we understand these roots, our efforts to save here and there not only become easier, they become more <b>meaningful</b>.

<font> <b> They call it the greatest sport on earth for a reason.<br />It just took me 26 years to figure out why.</b> </font><br />In high school, my mission in life was to win a New York State Wrestling Championship.<br />I committed myself to a lifestyle. I made the sacrifices; I put in the time.<br />I had the hunger, the desire, and the determination, but I came up short.<br />For many years, after I graduated it seemed like I got nothing out of my six years of total dedication to the sport. I felt the trade-off of what I gave and what I got in return to this sport was way out of whack.<br />I hated wrestling for it.<br />I just could not comprehend or justify putting every ounce of your soul into trying to achieve something and getting nothing in return.<br /><br />Until I had adversity in my life.<br /><br />And slowly but surely, I started realizing how much the sport of wrestling actually has given back to me. Much more than I ever knew.<br /><br />Dan Gable famously said, "Once you've wrestled, everything else in life is easier."<br /><br />I would take it one step further and say, "Because I've wrestled, almost all things in life are possible."<br /><br /><b>"6 Minutes Wrestling with Life" is much more than a wrestling book.</b><br />It is an inspirational book on life, love, loss and belief.<br />You will never look at life the same way again.<br />Get ready to laugh, cry, smile and think.<br /><br /><br /><b>Every Breath Is Gold Memoir Series</b><br />6 Minutes Wrestling with Life - Book 1 <br />Again - Book 2 <br />Your Soul Knows - Book 3<br />Divinely Orchestrated Chaos - Book 4 (New Release)
