“Yet, one day, unexpected and unhoped for, the world we had thought irretrievably lost may be returned to us. In a moment of insight—a sudden opening of the heart—we may glimpse again the mysterious reality we took for granted as children. We may once again experience its wonder and delight” (I. Zalewski, Who Is God). This book tells of the author’s unexpected return into that reality, believed to be irretrievably lost as childhood was left behind. It was written in real time as each step of that return unfolded its challenges and gifts. Its message of “making believing more than making believe” is shared for all who remember or hunger to remember and relive that same reality in their own lives that it might inspire them to listen for and live into the love, hope, and faith at its core.

Most relationship problems are essentially trust issues, explains psychotherapist David Richo. Whether it’s fear of commitment, insecurity, jealousy, or a tendency to be controlling, the real obstacle is a fundamental lack of trust—both in ourselves and in our partner. Daring to Trust offers key insights and practical exercises for exploring and addressing our trust issues in relationships. Topics include: • How we learn early in life to trust others (or not to trust them) • Why we fear trusting • Developing greater trust in ourselves as the basis for trusting others • How to know if someone is trustworthy • Naïve trust vs. healthy, adult trust • What to do when trust is broken Ultimately, Richo explains, we must develop trust in four directions: toward ourselves, toward others, toward life as it is, and toward a higher power or spiritual path. These four types of trust are not only the basis of healthy relationships, they are also the foundation of emotional well-being and freedom from fear.

John 17 contains the greatest intercessory prayer every prayed from this earth. The Apostle John reveals Jesus of Nazareth, in full disclosure of his self identity, going to His Father not only for His disciples then but also for his disciples now. Drawing from this remarkable chapter of the Bible, Dr. Michael A. Milton has sought to capture the timeless spiritual truths that Jesus prayed and to apply them to the lives of his congregation. In this book, all of us can now benefit from these insights. Retaining the live feel of an actual worship service at First Presbyterian Church of Chattanooga, Tennessee, where these messages were first delivered, the reader can expect an appealing mixture of faithful Bible exposition, alert concern for the times in which we live, and heartfelt pastoral application to the lives of real people. Each chapter concludes with questions for devotional study or for small groups.

A friend criticizes you. You grow impatient with someone you’re trying to help. A cell phone user annoys you on a train. Would your first response to these situations be kindness?

The Kindness Handbook is your personal companion to explore the rich landscape of kindness—and help you see just how it might shift and open up your life to greater joy, meaning, and compassion. “For kindness to be more fully realized, it needs to be distinguished from being ineffectual or meek.

On My Own sends the refreshingly positive, and supportive, message that being alone is not a sign of failure but can be an empowering and liberating experience. Society can be cruel in its assessment of a woman alone, regarding her as defective or deserving of pity. Similar pressures cause women to be ashamed of losing the status of mother, wife or girlfriend, and to dread the prospect of 'going it alone'. But, as the author of this inspiring book points out, being on your own can be a vital, intensely creative experience in which you can find your own voice and live a fulfilling life. The case histories and positive view of On My Own will resonate with every woman, young and old, since it touches on a sensitive nerve shared by women all over the world.

Grief Labyrinth is the journey I began with my daughter Inga's breast cancer diagnosis and her death at the age of thirty. I felt so heartbroken I did not think I would survive. In time, I discovered and walked the labyrinth, a profound metaphor for the grief process. The only way through is forward, with many twisting turns and going back and forth over what seems like the same territory. Walking the labyrinth path with my grief repeatedly, I ultimately discovered healing, trust, hope and joy. A transforming path "With the wisdom that comes only from personal experience, Carole offers to others a transforming path through grief. Her deep sharing highlights the benefit of turning towards one's grief. What she refers to as "The 4 R's"-reviewing, releasing receiving and returning are specific reflections that lead toward healing and integration. I recommend this book to anyone who has lost a loved one." -Ange Stephens, MA LMFT, Psychotherapist specialist in grief "This honest, heartfelt, and encouraging book offers the labyrinth as a comfort for the journey of grief." -Marcia Lattanzi-Licht, author of The Hospice Choice "This book is a moving testimony of a mother's path through grief. A path that takes us from fragmentation to wholeness. It reminds us that in the intense grief surrounding the loss of someone we love we rediscover the pool of grief that we have always carried. The ordinary, everyday grief that inhabits all our lives." -Frank Ostaseski, founder Metta Institute
