Lessons from bossy, caring, fearless, vulnerable, relentless, forgiving, smart, humble women at the top show readers how to fuel strengths, how to be fierce and feminine leaders, and how to nurture their authentic selves. Women need to know it’s okay to be kind and assertive. Between Grit and Grace will show you that success comes when you are comfortable living in the space between grit and grace—grit meaning being resilient and taking charge of your life (socially-acceptable masculine attributes), and grace meaning showing others mercy (socially-acceptable feminine trait). Author Sasha Shillcutt, MD, a nationally lauded, award-winning physician and speaker, will explain how to give yourself permission to disappoint nice people (and know that you are still a nice person anyway). You’ll learn how to stop apologizing for showing your strength and grit, and embrace your grace, too. This is where personal peace lives. Dr. Shillcutt, taught herself how to be a gritty, grace-filled leader and live authentically. Now, she wants to help other women be brave enough to do the same. Her passion is empowering and encouraging women to be brave enough in their professional and personal lives. She believes women cannot be too brave, too kind, too strong, too smart, too funny, too beautiful, or too authentic. Using real-life stories—ranging from women in law and medicine to women in education—the book explains how women can be feminine and formidable. Leadership and lipstick are not mutually exclusive. You’ll realize you can be bossy and caring, fearless and vulnerable, relentless and forgiving, smart and humble—and make it to the top. Across the space of ten chapters, you’ll learn how to navigate the forces that have shaped the modern workplace while doing so with grit and grace. When a woman lives authentically—she succeeds.

In 1975, Grace Gawler had a promising future. A brilliant young vet nurse planning to study veterinary medicine, she received a lucrative modelling offer, which would have paid her university fees. Concurrently, her boyfriend lost his leg to bone cancer. Grace was at a vital choice point - either pursue glamorous, well-paid modelling work, while studying to become a vet, or support her boyfriend through his dying months. The latter meant foregoing her personal and financial independence - and lifelong dreams of becoming a vet. Grace chose to support Ian. Believing that his cancer was curable, she directed her passion into his healing, dedicating 18-hour days - focussing on juicing, massages, and pain management, whilst researching every cure imaginable. With just a few weeks to live - Ian proposed. Grace accepted, taking him to the Philippines for a healing honeymoon, the beginning of a long road to recovery. He survived and together they established the Gawler Foundation, helping thousands of cancer patients gain hope and lead better lives. Now a mother of four and with Ian in remission, Grace developed her own methods for helping women with breast cancer and authored her first book, WOMEN OF SILENCE, in 1994. Life was good. Disaster struck in 1997; Ian left the family, then her own major health crisis began. Soon the healer of thousands was struggling for her own life. For nine years, she battled on with little support. Horrendously ill, she faced death many times. A beautiful woman, her shining light was almost extinguished. With amazing tenacity, drive, and passion, Grace survived. Near-death experiences have enhanced her passion for living, which bursts through in this book; her enthusiasm for life is contagious. Her only struggle is to contain the adjectives she uses. Now an international wellness leader, this modern day heroine inspires all with her story of GRACE, GRIT AND GRATITUDE.

Dr. Cliff Self and his wife, Darlene, did not choose their journey; they were thrust into it. After their son, Scott, came out to them as a gay man, Dr. Self and Darlene were propelled along a confusing path that caused them to question their understanding of God and the scripture and eventually to reach deep inside to find the grit and grace to experience miraculous changes. When Scott revealed his true self, the family’s world changed. The Selfs had to come to a new understanding of their relationships with one another and to their faith, framed by the conviction that the Bible is the word of God and the authority on how to live. Darlene struggled with shattered dreams, Dr. Self strove to understand the Christian teachings on homosexuality through scripture, and Scott battled with guilt, shame, and addiction until discovering the meaning of self-love and his path to wholeness as a gay man. In this candid and revealing account, all three family members offer inspiration for handling unexpected changes without fear, resolving conflicts between scripture and real life issues, and ultimately living with peace, joy, and purpose. After This is the moving narrative of one family’s journey through the healing process of change after their son came out as a gay man.

"More than a memoir-this book is a promise of hope for anyone who was abandoned as a child, to anyone who woke up hungry and went to bed hungrier every day, for every wife who has loved a husband who left bruises on her heart and on her body." Somewhere between stealing cold cuts from stray cats and watching a stranger leave her mother's bed after breaking in through their bedroom window, Mary figured out that her family was dirt poor. Worse than her empty stomach, she was hungry for acceptance and love. She thought she found it when her baby sister was born and she became her "mommy," taking care of her needs as best she could at the age of seven. Then she had to say goodbye over a small white casket. Mary's grandparents, first generation immigrants from Puerto Rico, took her in and gave her a glimpse of faith and stability. For a brief, shining spell, she had a real home-until they decided that Mama needed her. They may have been right, but Mama needed more than a little girl could give and Mary lost her way again. Just out of Juvy Hall, Mary found a knight in shining armor to take her away. She became a teenage bride to a man twice her age-a man as deeply enslaved to booze as every "step-dad" she'd had as a child. She loved him anyway, even wearing the bruises he gave her, even when she tried to leave him to give their children a better life. Despite her fear and loneliness, she never imagined it would take a gunshot in the middle of the night to teach her courage. She was even more surprised when rediscovered faith paved the path to forgiveness after so many years of pain. Running in Heels is a memoir of the grit and grace that carried a young girl through the shadows of her mother's choices and on through an abusive marriage. Mary A. Perez narrates an incredible story of survival in the face of hopelessness, and learning to forgive against all odds. A story of coming of age, and coming into grace."

If ... you think God is calling you to evangelize the North (even though you're still not fond of Yankees), wish folks would stop moving to the South but can't blame for wanting to come, and know Jesus is real, God is great, and sometimes life can be down right tough on a body ... ...

Original, contemporary haiku celebrating the sports and athletes of the Olympics - from an acclaimed poet and an international gallery of guests. Award-winning haiku poet Kit Pancoast Nagamura offers a collection of original poems that explore the beauty, physical effort, and essence of all the sports of the summer Olympics. At first glance, haiku and sports may seem like an odd pairing. But actually, there's a strong similarity between the two. The grace, balance, and focus that are required of an athlete are exactly what the haiku poet seeks in order to capture an emotion, a mood, an action in just a few, carefully chosen words. Anticipation of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics is building -- and what better way to share in the experience of the games than through Japan's beloved poetic form, haiku, which has been rediscovered and embraced in recent years by a new generation. From the elegance of a gymnast's leap and the fluid motion of a runner's body, to the thwump of the soccer ball hitting the net, poetry lovers and sports fans alike will feel the thrill and intensity as the world's best go for the gold. In this volume, the first to cover such a wide range of athletics, each Olympic sport is represented by three haiku written by Nagamura, plus one or two by a guest poet. Each poem is presented in both English and Japanese. Evocative photographs and illustrations complement the text.

GUTS: Find Your Greatness, Beat the Odds, Live From Passion ─ Living a life of grit and grace • Do you want to understand the important difference between head, heart, and gut and where each fits into better decision-making? • Are you ready to enjoy a purpose driven life and all of the joy and contentment it can bring? GUTS will help you find that purpose driven life that is yours to live with joy, passion and success. When Angela Duckworth wrote her best selling book Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance she could have been describing Sam Bracken who is the embodiment of living a life of grit and grace. In this modern era, we tap an app on our smartphone and anything you can imagine is delivered to you ─ maybe even by drone. We live in an age of convenience and ease; personal butlers are back in fashion and everyone has a chauffeur on call thanks to Uber. When was the last time you really “went for it?” Does anyone even have to try anymore? Sam Bracken answers that question with an emphatic YES. Now, more than ever, is the time to go for the gusto, to find your own Duckworth grit. In his book GUTS, Bracken explains why we all need to dig deep and do soul searching to see what lights the fire within that brings forth our very best. Bracken’s backstory would make Dr. Phil turn tail and run. His childhood and upbringing are unimaginably tough with years of abuse, even to the point where a relative set him on fire. What didn’t kill Sam Bracken made him stronger. And, he is now on a mission to bring self empowerment to others ─ self empowerment to realize a life of grit and grace. When we say something takes guts, we usually mean it takes courage to do it. It takes guts to go skydiving or to run a marathon or to try out for the school play. We call it luck or stamina or intestinal fortitude in conquering the hard, albeit exciting, things in life. Look back at the great personalities who made a difference in the pages of history. What did they all have in common? Determination and tenacity. In short, GUTS! They might have had talent too, but without guts they would have gone nowhere. Science now tells us that lots of talented individuals produce great stuff, but very few produce a lot of great stuff—and even fewer produce a lot of great stuff over a long career. What do these few highly productive people have in common? Grit and grace and a large helping of self-belief. This book is about actually getting there. You’ll have to push past failure again and again. And it is also about beating the odds no matter how high they are stacked against you. To be a true leader, you have to start with yourself. Are you ready to do some soul searching and learn the secrets to guts, self empowerment, a purpose driven life, and grit and grace? In Sam Bracken's GUTS, you will learn about: • mental strength • resisting feelings of low self esteem • self empowerment • building self confidence • living a life of passion • and, most importantly, what it takes to have grit and grace

In the 1950s, Betty Roberts did what most of her contemporaries considered audacious and inappropriate when she returned to college as a 32-year-old wife and mother. This was only the start of Roberts lifetime commitment to overcoming obstacles to womens equality. With Grit and By Grace follows Betty Roberts rise from a Depressionera childhood on the Texas plains to become a teacher, lawyer, state legislator, candidate for governor, and eventually Oregons first woman Supreme Court Justice. In this memoir, Justice Roberts reflects on her role as a mother, wife, and political trailblazer. Her story is important to the history of womens struggles to challenge prevailing stereotypes, but it is also a deeply personal story of a life sometimes stark, sometimes humorous, often exhausting, and always brightened with friendships and family. Her story is a vivid reminder of times too quickly forgotten, when a woman could not keep her own name or stay at a motel alone. Justice Roberts began her career during a politically complex time the Civil Rights Movement was in full swing, sentiment against the Vietnam War was growing, and the nascent womens movement would soon burst on the scene. During her 13 years as a legislator, she was instrumental in the passage of Oregons first legalized right to abortion and the states ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment, as well as pathbreaking environmental and land-use legislation. Roberts tells her engrossing story with honesty and warmth. With Grit and By Grace is about lifes disappointments and promises, its rejections and rewards, and its demand for the determination and commitment that bring success. Politicians, civic leaders, feminists, and anyoneinterested in Oregons twentieth-century political history will be fascinated by this recounting of events that influenced the political and social landscape of Oregon and beyond.
