Choosing Joy is the true story of a young Minnesota family overcoming the tragic loss of their four-year-old boy. Cameron was beautiful, full of life, strong-willed, creative, thoughtful, and aware of heavenly things that surprised his parents. He was mischievous in the best sense of the word but also understood when people were sad or needed encouragement. He would whisper in their ears, "I think they need Jesus in their heart." Sadly, his life was cut short in an accident in his own backyard. On the night of his death, his parents had to make a choice with broken hearts between anger and joy. They had seen other families lose loved ones and how brokenness, addiction, abuse, divorce, and suicide had followed. With other children to care for, they dismissed the bitterness and feelings of abandonment that had already started to creep in, and they chose joy. As the story unfolds, hear the conversations, see through both parents’ eyes, and learn how God revealed His graciousness. Read how they walked through the ups and downs in the months and years that followed, keeping their hope-filled hearts open to be touched by God. Choosing Joy will help you rekindle hope, forgive, call on God again, and trust His will.

Most accounts of Alzheimer's describe a process of irreversible degeneration and decline. This is a book of hope, a rare success story - the story of a woman who refused to surrender to the expectations of her husband's diagnosis, instead inspiring him to join her in making every moment they had together meaningful and precious. A few months after their fiftieth anniversary, Ady Berger was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. "I don't want to live anymore," was his response. His wife, Helene, was determined to find creative ways to make their lives as fulfilling as possible, for as long as possible. She began to include him in every decision made on his behalf. Together they built the scaffolding that gave Ady the best chance for positive outcomes, physically, emotionally, and socially. He thrived with a solid foundation of constant mental stimulation and support. Their efforts began to bear fruit. In his final years Ady again became known for his radiant smile; greeting friends by name; returning to the piano; playing chess; and beginning to draw pictures and writing nightly letters.Helene's comprehensive guide chronicles the different elements that made this regeneration possible. Welcoming, positive, and honest, she shares her own difficult journey: her doubts and fears, failures and ultimate successes. Choosing Joy includes: ¿The importance of acceptance by both patient and caregiver¿The importance of changing the caregiver's attitude from one of frustration and anger to kindness, appreciation, and support¿Ideas to keep the patient mentally stimulated and productive¿Methodology for negotiating joint solutions to the progressive challenges of a debilitating disease.¿Detailed strategies for hiring and bringing out the best in aides, creating schedules to avoid confusion by both caregivers and patient, creating a safe and healthy home environment, and managing doctor/patient relationships and complicated medications ¿Encouraging the caregiver to find the delicate balance between giving the best of herself while remaining whole and seeking her own fulfillment. ¿The life affirming insights Helene gleaned during and after the Alzheimer's yearsCaregivers of patients with any type of debilitating disease will find a wealth of information, ideas, and inspiration in Choosing Joy.

What is joy? Ask ten different people and you'll get ten different answers. Yet if you asked: a man who grew up fatherless and destitute in the slums of Atlanta a young widow who decided to bring a neglected garden back to life in spite of agonizing physical pain and a deeply wounded spirit or author Dan Lord himself, ex-frontman for a popular indie rock band each would point to the one source of their joy: Jesus. They made the choice for joy, against all odds, and so can you, though the obstacles might seem insurmountable. Worry and anxiety, pain and suffering, the daily grind -- all these and more can block your path. When faced with such challenges, is it possible to get past the barriers, let go, and experience God's joy? When you look around, you might wonder -- although joy is a fruit of the Spirit, it doesn't seem to be hanging visibly from many Christian boughs. Choosing Joy aims to change that -- and change your life in the process -- as it helps you discover the key to this most attractive but seemingly elusive gift. Choosing Joy will help you overcome the obstacles and focus your heart, mind and strength on God so that you can receive the happiness and peace that the world cannot give.
