In this new guided journal, Mary Potter Kenyon offers readers an opportunity to reflect on the meaning and significance of loss and allows the griever to sort through all the conflicting emotions that arise after a death. By interweaving her own experiences of loss, the proven research behind writing as a method for healing, and blank pages with carefully chosen quotes, Kenyon gives readers space to express the feelings that are sometimes too painful to speak aloud.

We all desperately need the biblical guidance and preparation found in Battle Ready!"--Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times bestselling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries "The most difficult fights we will face in this life will not be on the outside; they will be within our own hearts and minds. As someone who has struggled with depression and anxiety throughout my life, I know this firsthand. Battle Ready will help encourage, empower, and equip you to live in true victory."--Holley Gerth, bestselling author of Fiercehearted "Battle Ready will equip and empower you, teaching you where to park your mind during difficult times. Its practical advice and pen-to-paper reflection sections, coupled with the truths of Scripture sprinkled throughout, will enable you to avoid defeat and discouragement and walk confidently in faith instead. Highly recommended."--Karen Ehman, national speaker, New York Times bestselling author of Keep It Shut: What to Say, How to Say It and When to Say Nothing at All "Battle Ready is a field manual for the mind. If you desire to think more like Christ, its truths, stories, personal applications, and discoveries will undoubtedly lead you to renewed places of peace, hope, and life."--Elisa Morgan, speaker and author of The Beauty of Broken "Relational, emotional, and physical trials often hit one hundred miles an hour, making us feel defenseless and powerless. This no longer has to be the case. Battle Ready, an exploratory, hands-on book, provides dozens of mind-renewing truths, hope-building exercises, and habit-changing techniques to help you endure the worst of times, with Jesus, as if it was the best of times."--Shannon Ethridge, MA, life/relationship coach and bestselling author of Every Woman's Battle series

"The story’s message, that people should choose joy even (and especially) in difficult and painful times, seems tailor-made for this moment. A timely, uplifting read about finding joy in the midst of tragedy, filled with quirky characters and comforting warmth."—Kirkus (starred review) From the New York Times bestselling author of How to Walk Away comes a stunning new novel full of heart and hope. Samantha Casey is a school librarian who loves her job, the kids, and her school family with passion and joy for living. But she wasn’t always that way. Duncan Carpenter is the new school principal who lives by rules and regulations, guided by the knowledge that bad things can happen. But he wasn’t always that way. And Sam knows it. Because she knew him before—at another school, in a different life. Back then, she loved him—but she was invisible. To him. To everyone. Even to herself. She escaped to a new school, a new job, a new chance at living. But when Duncan, of all people, gets hired as the new principal there, it feels like the best thing that could possibly happen to the school—and the worst thing that could possibly happen to Sam. Until the opposite turns out to be true. The lovable Duncan she’d known is now a suit-and-tie wearing, rule-enforcing tough guy so hell-bent on protecting the school that he’s willing to destroy it. As the school community spirals into chaos, and danger from all corners looms large, Sam and Duncan must find their way to who they really are, what it means to be brave, and how to take a chance on love—which is the riskiest move of all. With Katherine Center’s sparkling dialogue, unforgettable characters, heart, hope, and humanity, What You Wish For is the author at her most compelling best.

Beloved singer-songwriter Judy Collins draws on her personal experience with her son's suicide to guide readers through grieving the loss of a loved one who has died under tragic circumstances. The death of a loved one is always painful and the grieving process complex and profound. Yet when the loss occurs under tragic circumstances, there is a whole other set of emotional variables that the people left behind must face. Questions abound, such as "Could I have stopped this?" Feelings of guilt, shame, and even anger combine with the overwhelming sadness of losing someone who was dearly loved. Drawing on her own experience of losing her son to suicide, as well as her conversations with hundreds of people who have grieved the tragic death of a friend or family member, revered singer-songwriter Judy Collins has culled together seven powerful steps toward healing. The Seven T's are: TRUTH: Tell it. Regardless of how terrible the facts may be and how hard it is to talk about, don't hide the truth about how you lost the person you loved. TRUST: Allow it. Don't let the painful circumstances surrounding the death of your loved one prevent you from talking with friends about your loss. THERAPY: Get it. Seek help-whether through traditional talk therapy, your art, meditation, or whatever method you choose-but get the help you need. TREASURE: Hold on. Don't stop treasuring your loved one. Don't let the horrible events leading to his or her death wash away all of the things that were good and beautiful about that person's life. THRIVE: Keep living with your eyes wide open. Don't give in to the temptation to use alcohol or any other addiction to blunt or blur your sadness. TREAT: Be kind to yourself. Give yourself the gift of self-nourishment. TRIUMPH: You must. Live a life of joy, abundance, and forgiveness. From a woman famous for her wisdom and compassion, The Seven T's is destined to become a classic on the subject of grieving and loss.

Is life not turning out how you expected? In the summer of 2007, Jillian Heerlyn and her husband found themselves counted among the 1 in 8 couples who have trouble getting pregnant. The first half of their 9-year battle with infertility included a considerable amount of depression and questioning God. A wrestle with infertility is ultimately a wrestle with God. Hope Deferred is the guidebook that enabled Jillian to rise above her circumstances with joy, peace, hope and a deeper relationship with God. What if turning to God is painful? What if fear and doubt are making it difficult to hope? Is God causing infertility in order to teach a lesson? Is God able to intervene, but choosing not to for some reason? Why is everyone else able to get pregnant so easily? Hope Deferred dives into these tough questions and more, and addresses the difficulties surrounding infertility, while offering the tools needed to have hope and peace even when circumstances are not resolved. The truths carefully presented will help heal the heart and mind of the one who is affected by infertility. Even those who are past child-bearing age will find salve to cover old wounds. With honesty and authenticity, Jillian shares the pain and trials that plagued her through infertility. She opens the door into her journey and invites you to join her in finding greater freedom, joy and peace while enduring difficult circumstances. You will quickly realize that, although your story is unique, you have a sister who understands. This book is a must read for anyone personally dealing with infertility and for loved ones to gain insight into the infertility journey. This book speaks to anyone who has ever lived with an unmet desire.
