Faith, Power, Joy tells the multi-generational saga of a family of women who followed their intuition, demonstrated their faith, and transformed the challenges in their lives into opportunities for service and joy.<br /><br />Faith<br />At sixteen, Lottie won her husband-to-be in a daring bet and overcame his untimely death through prayer and love.<br /><br />Power<br />Her daughter, Minnie, broke the glass ceiling in the 1930s by becoming a well-known educator.<br /><br />Joy<br />Sheryl, Minnie’s granddaughter, shares the family saga of five generations of women who reveal their secrets for following spiritual principles, living passionately and transforming adversity into resilience.<br /><br />The women’s stories begin in 1890, when the author’s great grandmother challenged a family friend in a bet and went on to overcome unexpected tragedy, grief and loss. She learned to share her faith through love and helping others heal. The family chronicle traverses time through the next generation when the author’s grandmother had a stellar career as an educator in the public schools, which she achieved by her determination and challenging the social norms of her times. Her daughter, the author’s mother, confronted lifetime illness and personal loss with courage and determination. The author expanded her own self-acceptance and understanding through spiritual practice, meditation and holistic healing, while her daughter shares the source of her strength though her devotionals and Christ-centered living.<br /><br />Each woman lived by her principles of love, faith, courage and determination. They each found their path in life by learning to trust themselves and follow their guidance. Their stories are both joyful and heartbreaking as each reveals her methods for overcoming adversity and transforming obstacles into opportunities. Each woman learned to embrace life with enthusiasm and share what she learned to help others.<br /><br />These remarkable women built on the spiritual growth of their foremothers. The author now shares their secrets for creating the lives they wanted through spiritual principles that apply today. They inspire us and provide guidance to harness our inner power, live by our faith, and share our joy with others.<br /><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.

<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 />

THE CURTAIN – A NOVEL SYNOPSIS:<br /><br />Have you met Henry Maddox? He knows you — not personally of course… he really only knows your data. But from that data he actually may know you better than you think you know yourself. Henry knows where you’ve been and what you’ve bought. He knows all of your friends. Henry not only knows your behaviors, he understands your tendencies. And from those tendencies, he can predict what you’re going to do before you’ve actually done it. <br /><br />Who is Henry Maddox? He is a 21st century marketing consultant and he specializes in highly personal and irresistibly persuasive advertising.<br /> <br />Henry’s strategies combine modern data mining (Big Data) techniques with other advanced and controversial marketing practices (Market Fragmentation, Cross Promotion, and Conglomerate Propagandizing) to the point where consumers don’t even know they are being sold. Businesses love Henry because he not only moves product, he actually controls their customers. <br /><br />But when Henry is forced to face how his techniques affect real people, he realizes he has inadvertently given corporations the power to destroy society for their own ends.<br /><br />THE CURTAIN explores the effect that increasingly sophisticated marketing techniques have on communities, families, and individuals. In an age of digital distractions, who remembers the transcendent morality that has allowed past civilizations to prosper? When corporations have the influence and motive to define people by what they consume, are we as individuals losing the substance of who we really are?<br /><br />THE CURTAIN is entertaining, fun, thought provoking, educational, and frightening. Ord’s storytelling is brilliant and his research extraordinary. THE CURTAIN is a must read for anyone that watches television or movies, listens to the radio, accesses the internet, logs into social media, has a smart phone, participates in loyalty card programs, or uses GPS technology. In short, THE CURTAIN is for everyone.

<h1>Stress is a lot like love – hard to define, but you know it when you feel it...</h1><br /><br /><h3><b><i>>>> 16 additional books included - LIMITED TIME OFFER! <<<</i></b></h3><br /><br />This book will explore the nature of stress and how it infiltrates every level of your life, including the physical, emotional, cognitive, relational and even spiritual. <br /><br />In this book, you’ll find ways to nurture resilience, rationality and relaxation in your everyday life, and learn how to loosen the grip of worry and anxiety. Through techniques that get to the heart of your unique stress response, and an exploration of how stress can affect your relationships, you'll discover how you can control stress instead of letting it control you. <br /><br />But this book is <b>not</b> just another “anti-stress” book. Here, we will <b>not</b> be concerned with only reducing the symptoms of stress. Rather, we'll try to understand exactly what stress is and the role it plays in our lives. <br /><br />We'll attempt to <i>dig deep</i> to really understand the real sources of our anxiety and how to take ownership of them. Using the power of habit and several techniques for smoothing out the stressful wrinkles in our day-to-day lives, we'll move towards a real-world solution to living with less stress, more confidence and a deep spiritual resilience that will insulate you from the inevitable pressures of life. <br /><br />By adopting a trusting, open and relaxed attitude, we'll bring something more of <i>ourselves</i> to relationships of all kinds. This book will take a look at dating and relationships without stress and worry, as well as ways to bring tranquility and balance into your home and family life. <br /><br />We will address physical, emotional, relational, spiritual, and cognitive and behavioral symptoms of stress. While most stress-management solutions offer relief for symptoms in only one or two of the above areas, this book will show you how all five areas are important, and a successful stress solution will touch on <i>each of them</i>.<br /><br /><i><b>We each only have one life - here's to spending it wisely!</b></i><br /><br /><h3><b><i>Grab your copy today! - Read for FREE with Kindle Unlimited!</i></b></h3>

Originally published in 1995, the first edition of <em>Managing Your Mind</em> established a unique place in the self-help book market. A blend of tried-and-true psychological counseling and no-nonsense management advice grounded in the principles of CBTand other psychological treatments, the book straddled two types of self-help literature, arguing that in one's personal and professional life, the way to success is the same. By adopting the practical strategies that mental health experts Butler and Hope have developed over years of clinical research and practice, one can develop the "mental fitness" necessary to resolve one's personal and interpersonal challenges at home and work and to live a productive, satisfying life.<br /><br />The first edition addressed how to develop key skills to mental fitness (e.g., managing one's time better, facing and solving problems better, keeping things in perspective, learning to relax, etc.), how to improve one's relationships, how to beat anxiety and depression, and how to establish a good mind-body balance. For this new edition, Butler and Hope have updated all preexisting material and have added five new chapters-on sexuality and intimate relationships; anger in relationships; recent traumatic events and their aftermath; loss and bereavement; and dealing with the past.

<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 included - LIMITED TIME OFFER!<<<</i></b></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 money diet. <br /><br />If you're like many people, budgeting is something you do with a kind of deflated spirit: budgeting means bargain bin quality and the sad sense that what you want is going to be just out of reach.<br /><br /><i>This book will try a different approach to budgeting altogether...</i><br /><br />This book will offer an expanded notion of what it means to budget. We'll look at how money is not the only resource that needs to be managed, and a “life budget” that acknowledges your emotional, behavioral, social and even spiritual capital is more likely to lead to smarter decisions.<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 concrete ways to put some of these principles into action, and look at resources that will keep you focused and motivated. <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 <i>authentic</i> and longer lasting.<br /><br />Minimalism is not about doing with less than you need. Rather, it's about finding what you need and fulfilling that need exactly, without excess. 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 />Life is short. 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 <i>not</i> meaningful and worthwhile in themselves. <br /><br />Money is a <i>tool</i> and how we spend it is an expression of our values and what we think is important. <br /><br />How much would you pay for peace of mind and the calm you get from knowing you are living well? 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 stressing about money?<br /><br />These may seem like vague or overly philosophical questions, but they get to the root 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 <i>meaningful</i>.

There is an epidemic that is going on. It is estimated that one out of every two mothers are affected by it. No one is talking about it, but a lot of women feel it. Intense fatigue, emotional fluctuations, memory issues, hormonal and other health complications, which for some, can be debilitating and even life threatening. It's called Postnatal Depletion, being depleted after having a baby and can extend from the first days of birth to more than ten years later, possibly predisposing the mother to later health complications. There is a different reality after giving birth than what is presented to us. All women don't just snap back into shape after having a baby and if they don't feel good, it's postpartum depression. In this ground breaking book, Dr. Danett Bean (Doctor of Acupuncture & Asian Medicine), preventive care, women's health specialist and survivor of postnatal depletion uncovers the roots to this phenomena as a societal issue and offers practical solutions to preventing and ending this condition. If you are an expectant or new mother, father or plan to be one someday, or you have parents that you care about in your life, you can't afford to not read this book. Comes with a Postnatal Care Template, Dr. Danett's personal list of things that helped her to recover with a Directory of Resources and a list of Specifics Tips To Help Support Mothers.
