Anxiety – a toxic fire which burns in the belly and fills the head with billowing plumes of stress. Never… before has dread smeared itself across the minds of so many, and never before have so many yearned to be set free from its stench. U Turn to our Father draws upon the inerrancy of Scripture to show us all that to be constantly striving for a trouble-free mind through the blood, sweat, and tears of our own efforts, is in truth an act of futility. Our Father’s plan is not for us to struggle in vain to change our inner lives, but for both our inner and outer lives to be changed through the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the supernatural, sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit. The primary place this change takes effect is within the heart – not the physical heart, but the spiritual heart. For out of it spring the issues of life. Proverbs 4:23 Bathed by the Holy Spirit, it is the spiritual heart which upholds the soul – nourishing, nurturing, sustaining, and supporting all aspects of our wellbeing. U Turn to our Father – a change of heart. Not just a possibility, but a guaranteed promise from the Giver of Life. Twelve short chapters await your eyes and ears. Only by reading them will you understand why you were meant to.

A timely, intelligent, and entertaining exploration of why ambitious women are often perceived as rude and how the power of… rudeness can be harnessed in relationships, in bed, at work, and in everyday life—from journalist Rebecca Reid.During a TV interview with a comedian, Rebecca Reid found herself unable to get a word in edgewise. So, when she put her finger to her lips and shushed him, she became instantly known on the internet as &“Rebecca Rude.&” It was only then that she realized that being rude could actually be her superpower. A captivating blend of advice and pop culture, Rude will show you how to utilize the power of boldness in every area of your life. Exploring famous women who have been perceived as rude—including Princess Margaret, Anna Wintour, Taylor Swift, Meghan Markle, and others—this book demonstrates how those women used their &“rudeness&” to get what they want—and deserve—out of life. Reid also addresses whether there are different rules of rudeness for women compared to men (yes, there are) and how being taught not to be rude actually prevents women from being successful—especially because when women are assertive, they are often judged as being aggressive. And while there&’s a place for politeness, Rebecca argues that it&’s never a bad time to stand up for yourself to achieve your dreams.

New York Times bestselling author Jen Sincero gets to the core of transformation: habits--breaking, making, understanding, and sticking with them… like you've never stuck before.Badass Habits is a eureka-sparking, easy-to-digest look at how our habits make us who we are, from the measly moments that happen in private to the resolutions we loudly broadcast (and, erm, often don't keep) on social media. Habit busting and building goes way beyond becoming a dedicated flosser or never showing up late again--our habits reveal our unmet desires, the gaps in our boundaries, our level of self-awareness, and our unconscious beliefs and fears. Badass Habits features Jen's trademark hilarious voice and offers a much-needed fresh take on the conventional wisdom and science that shape the optimism (or pessimism?) around the age-old topic of habits. The book includes enlightening interviews with people who've successfully strengthened their discipline backbones, new perspective on how to train our brains to become our best selves, and offers a simple, 21 day, step-by-step guide for ditching habits that don't serve us and developing the habits we deem most important. Habits shouldn't be impossible to reset--and with healthy boundaries, knowledge of--and permission to go after--our desires, and an easy to implement plan of action, we can make any new goal a joyful habit.

By Timothy Caulfield. 2020
Part pop-science, part self-help, Your Day. Your Way. is a friendly, funny, fact-based guide to changing how you make decisions… in order to live a better -- maybe even your best -- life. We make, and worry about, a thousand big and little decisions during our waking hours. And for most of us, these decisions are made (after a lot of hemming and hawing), based on concerns or beliefs about our world that . . . well . . . simply aren't true. These misperceptions impact day-to-day decisions and stress us out unnecessarily -- and we all have enough stress as it is. Tim Caulfield seeks to provide the antidote to this analysis paralysis, teaching readers -- through sound science and silly stories -- that reevaluating their decision-making processes can lead to lives that are both more fulfilling and more exciting. Your Day. Your Way. unfolds like a typical day -- from the first buzz of the alarm clock all the way to bedtime. As the clock moves forward, Caulfield tackles topics associated with that particular time of day and addresses them through science-informed responses about health, offering readers a way to cut through the noise and have healthier and happier lives in the age of anxiety. Caulfield highlights what science says we should be worried about and how we can de-stress and live a healthy lifestyle. Rather than burying you in the facts, or listing out a bunch of specific things you should or should not be doing, Caulfield uses wit, humor, and a wide variety of examples to encourage readers to reevaluate how they make all of those decisions -- so that they can live in a way that truly works for them.
