Remember His Name: Conquering Sorrow, Accepting Joy is a book about hope, tragedy, healing and forgiveness. It is a personal story of a woman who experienced the sudden tragic loss of her spouse of almost 37 years. You will read of her courage and strength as she stumbled through the first few months, learning to accept the reality of what happened.<br /> She shares her private personal thoughts and feelings as she traveled a journey she never thought she would ever face. She is candid and purely honest as she speaks of her experiences. From the heart, you are there with her, feeling and experiencing the horror as well as the joy as time goes on and she shares with you the steps she took and things she discovered that helped heal the pain of her grief.<br /> Judith and Ralph met in 1973, fell in love, got married, had two beautiful children, raised them in a rural suburb of Detroit, Michigan, sent them off to college, watched them become independent successful young people and now as a couple experiencing empty nest and nearing retirement began planning their future. The summer evenings were just right for swinging on their new wooden swing. They often found themselves reminiscing about the past and planning for the future.<br /> Then suddenly one beautiful summer evening, all that changed.<br />Spiritual events, synchronicity, meditation, journaling and the importance of connecting with others, stepping outside of her comfort zone helped her learn to walk the path of grief. Then finally, she stepped into a new life. Letting the spirit of her beloved live within her, while letting his physical being go is a philosophy Judith lives by daily. Always keeping in mind the last words, her husband Ralph wrote to their daughter Holli in an e-mail, “The Future is Bright.”

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 />

<b>The bestselling true story of violence, control, courage, redemption...and a mother's love. The Crime of the Decade in Wisconsin.</b><br /> <br /><b>WITH PHOTOS</b><br />Teri Jendusa never dreamed she would marry a violent, malignant narcissist like David Larsen. But she did. Why? Simple. Larsen cleverly concealed his true nature until the marriage vows were final. David, an eventual church council president and model citizen, rapidly began to morph into a monster and sociopath, telling Teri on their wedding day, “Now, I own you.” <br /> <br />Beaten and Left For Dead is a book about extreme marital violence, dominant control and psychological torment through the mind of the out-of-control David Larsen. It's also about survival, faith and a mother’s will to live for her children’s sake...as she faces death, face to face.<br /> <br />This is an ideal book for women’s studies and book clubs as it looks inside a large women’s shelter, giving the reader a glimpse of a support network. The author also interviews a counselor who works with violent men with surprising results.<br /> <br />Teri Jendusa-Nicolai continues to crusade for women’s issues to this day and currently works with a Wisconsin commission on domestic violence.<br /> <br /><b>EDITORIAL PRAISE</b><br />"Teri Jendusa-Nicolai's story is a powerful example of the horrific lengths of barbarism a man can go to when he considers a woman his personal property. And it is, equally, an inspiring, riveting story of a woman's courage and clear thinking under the absolute worst of conditions, and of her tenacious hold to life...I am so grateful to Teri Jendusa-Nicolai and to Dave Alfvin for getting this story out to us. Don't miss it." <br /><b>--Lundy Bancroft, best-selling author on domestic violence, trainer, and activist on male violence against women</b><br /> <br />"This book is important because it gets our message out as to what we do to help abusers change their value systems."<br /><b>--Maureen Manning-Rosenfeld, Clinical Professional Counselor</b>

<h3>The world is a vast, complicated and sometimes downright <b>hostile</b> place...</h3> <br /><br /><br /><b><i>>>> 16 additional books included - LIMITED TIME OFFER! <<<</i></b><br /><br />Our hyper connected world bombards us with images of phenomenally successful celebrities together with the expectation that we should want nothing but the best for ourselves at all times. But in a bustling world of 7 billion people, carving out a meaningful niche for ourselves can be daunting to say the least.<br /><br />It's understandable that people feel the need to bolster their self esteem. Faced with millions of glossy images in the media about how we should live our lives, some have turned to trying even harder still to keep up. Others have merely given up. <br /><br />It's no exaggeration that people in the 21st century live in a world of infinitely more possibilities than any generation before them. We have experts and gurus of all stripes telling us that the life we have now is nothing compared to what we could achieve – and yet, <i>we're as depressed and lacking in confidence as ever</i>.<br /><br />Self help books on the market today will tell you one of two things: either that you are perfect already as you are and needn't worry, or that with just a little (well, a lot) of effort, you can reach those goals. Be the best, smartest, most successful, thinnest and relentlessly happiest version of yourself possible. <i>No excuses!</i><br /><br /><b>This book takes a different approach to self esteem altogether.</b> <br /><br />If you're feeling overwhelmed and worthless, inundated with information, struggling to juggle life, expectations, and disappointments... it may be time for a little <i>self-compassion</i>.<br /><br />Unlike self esteem or an inflated confidence level, self-compassion is a different way of looking at yourself and others, warts and all, and a way more realistic acceptance of the way things are. <br /><br />Healthier than a high self esteem is a realistic, compassionate view of ourselves – and others. Generating our sense of self-worth from within means we have a more stable self-concept – one that can endure criticism while still learning from it. One that can honestly appraise who we are as human beings – and love and respect ourselves anyway. With self-compassion, you become unflappable, calm and self-assured - without the risk of narcissism or becoming self-absorbed. <br /><br /><b>Through a series of exercises, this book will suggest a new, gentle yet extremely powerful attitude shift that can end feelings of self-hatred, doubt, shame and low self-worth <i>forever</i>.</b>

It's reality-check time! You are at least five months into your tour of parenting duty by now. The complexity of child-training has begun to come into focus. You have learned that as your baby matures both constant and variable factors continually influence his or her development. What behaviors can and should you expect from your pretoddler? Feeding time for your pretoddler, for example, is now more than a response controlled by a sucking reflex. For the pretoddler, mealtime is part of a very complex, conscious interaction between what the child does and what his parents expect him to do. Right and wrong conduct will be encouraged, discouraged, and guided when necessary. In fact, right and wrong patterns of behavior will now be part of your baby's entire day. That's why feeding time, waketime and sleeptime provide wonderful opportunities for training and Babywise Book II will guide you all the way, from the high chair to playpen, from the living room to the back yard. This series teaches the practical side of introducing solids food, managing mealtimes, nap transitions, traveling with your infant, setting reasonable limits while encourage healthy exploration and much more. You will learn how to teach your child to use sign language for basic needs, a tool proven to help stimulate cognitive growth and advance communication. Apply the principles and your friends and relatives will be amazed at the alertness, contentedness and happy disposition of your baby
