Between 1893 and 1920 the U.S. government attempted to transform Kiowa children by immersing them in the forced assimilation program that lay at the heart of that era's Indian policy. Committed to civilizing Indians according to Anglo-American standards of conduct, the Indian Service effected the government's vision of a new Indian race that would be white in every way except skin color. Reservation boarding schools represented an especially important component in that assimilationist campaign. The Rainy Mountain School, on the Kiowa-Comanche-Apache Reservation in western Oklahoma, provides an example of how theory and reality collided in a remote corner of the American West. Rainy Mountain's history reveals much about the form and function of the Indian policy and its consequences for the Kiowa children who attended the school. In To Change Them Forever Clyde Ellis combines a survey of changing government policy with a discussion of response and accommodation by the Kiowa people. Unwilling to surrender their identity, Kiowas nonetheless accepted the adaptations required by the schools and survived the attempt to change them into something they did not wish to become. Rainy Mountain became a focal point for Kiowa society.

In 1989, while waiting for her children to emerge from their private high school in San Francisco, Linda Mornell observed a young man hanging back from the others. She knew he was a scholarship student and thought that surely he had it made: full tuition, competitive academic school, college prospects. But his body language was telling a different story. Instantly sympathetic, Linda knew her own children, coming from public school backgrounds, also had trouble adjusting. Embarking on summer programs, especially the challenging ones, had made all the difference. Although sometimes reluctant to go, they returned home more resilient, self-assured, and better prepared to face the challenges of the school year ahead. Linda was struck by an idea. Why couldn't low-income kids also have these experiences? Not only would it expand their world but it could help them develop an internal compass that could change them forever. Today, more than 25 years later, that idea and the organization she founded, Summer Search, has transformed the lives of thousands of adolescents from seven different cities. Forever Changed is the incredible true story of courageous students who took on life-changing summer experiences to discover who they really were and what they were capable of becoming. It details the challenges and triumphs of both the students and their mentors as they navigate and interrupt paths that, for many, seemed destined for failure. For families and educators interested in adolescent development, this book documents the remarkable transformation that "going for hard" can bring to all young people.

If there is an overriding philosophy that Ora Nadrich ascribes to, it is this: you can help yourself solve your own problems, you can do it daily, and the process doesn’t need to be complex. Flying in the face of the often oblique language of the self help movement, Ora, a certified life coach with a thriving practice in Los Angeles, prides herself on not only having devised a method of self discovery and mindful practice that is simple, direct and applicable to everyone, but is also easy to understand and put to use. And, like brushing your teeth, can be done daily and take about as much time. Simplicity is her mantra. That philosophy forms the basis of, "Says Who? How One Simple Question Can Change the Way You Think Forever," in which Ora vividly illustrates and breaks down her simple yet highly effective method, based on the principle that while we all face obstacles and negative thoughts in our lives, it is not enough to simply examine and be aware of them---we must question and challenge them in order to bring about true change. Many of the obstacles people face,are the result of their own negative thoughts holding them back. And often those thoughts don't even originate within them; they're the ideas or opinions of someone else---a critical parent or angry spouse, for instance---which they believe without questioning to see if they're even real or true. Since thoughts create beliefs---which then create behavior---negative thoughts are dangerous things to leave unchecked. You must question them, challenge them. Says Who?" shows us how. More than simple "think positive" slogans and inspirational platitudes, this is not just a motivational book; instead "Says Who?" provides practical, tangible steps to tackling a condition that affects us all: negative thoughts.

Hope changes everything. It can disarm guilt, shatter shame, and put your past in its place. All you have to do is make the choice to let it in. It won’t be easy. It won’t be quick. But it is possible and we serve a God who promises over and over again that anything is possible. Pete Wilson, pastor and the author of Plan B, presents a new look at the power of healing through hope, revealing 4 unique choices that have the potential to change your life forever. With Wilson’s telltale cadence and candor, Let Hope In explores accounts of seemingly hopeless moments in the Bible illustrating God’s ultimate plan for healing by letting hope fill the dark places of your past. Discover how pain that is not transformed becomes transferred. Embrace the freedom of being okay with not being okay. Learn that a life of trusting is far more magnificent than a life of pleasing. Because hurt people hurt people, but free people have the power to free people. So make today the day that you get unstuck. The day you fill your past with the light of hope, the day you say good-bye to regret and shame. The day you choose to change your future and embrace who God created you to be, simply by making the choice to let hope in.
