"You have ALS. There is no cure or known treatment plan. This is a fatal disease. Life expectancy is two to five years. I'm sorry." These words were spoken to us in a dimly lit doctor's office on December 9, 2010, less than six months after we married. A choice needed to be made at that moment. Die with ALS or Live with ALS and be All In. By the grace of God and Denise's amazing faith we chose to live not die with ALS. This is a story of love, of survival, and running, the sport that united us and enables me to keep the memory of Denise alive. There is a lot to her empty chair as you will discover in these pages. Be inspired by my wife and know our God is with us always.

Those who are dying, hope and pray for a miraculous healing. Sometimes people aren't healed. Sometimes they die. This book gives a candid view of those who live as well as those who don't. Looking death in the face is hard for people. Many fear the unknown. People worry that they won't be able to handle the pain or say the things that are important to their loved ones. Death is a sure thing for all of us but it doesn't have to be faced with dread. It is but a stepping stone from this realm to the next. Christ gives us hope for this life and for eternity. Hope, a confident expectation of something better tomorrow, is what sustains the terminally ill. Whether for a miraculous healing or eternal life after death, the stories in this book show us that hope does exist. This hope is in Christ. Kim Armstrong has been a registered nurse for 30 years. She has witnessed many miraculous healings of patients who were given a death sentence. She has also been present to watch numerous patients take their last breath. "Living by Faith Dying with Hope A Nurse's Story" is her second book about hope. She writes about the patients she has encountered who hope for a miracle but many times are consumed by death. She describes the faith of those who see miracles occur and the hope that sustains those who must face death. Kim lives in western Pennsylvania with her husband and children. She continues to work in the hospital setting.

Dying, Grieving, Faith, and Family: A Pastoral Care Approach enables grief counselors, pastors, hospice specialists, hospital chaplains, mental health practitioners, educators, and seminary students to bring an understanding of faith development, family systems, and gender and ethnic differences into their professional practice as they work with dying and grieving persons. No other book covers all these themes. Not only a great resource for practical guidance, this book is also meant to be provocative, suggestive, and stimulating to professionals and educators charged with working with and teaching about dying and grieving persons. With 50 years of providing pastoral care to dying and grieving persons and 30 years as a pastoral educator, George Bowman understands the nature and concerns of dying and grieving persons. In Dying, Grieving, Faith, and Family he answers the questions you should be asking yourself--including: How does faith development affect relationships of the dying person and family and friends? How does faith development affect grief management by the survivors? How does the family systems approach help the pastor or counselor work with dying persons and their survivors? What gender and ethnic issues are important to remember in helping to minister and serve persons in crises of dying and grieving? The value of Dying, Grieving, Faith, and Family lies in its approach to dying and grieving from the perspectives of faith development, family systems theory, gender, and ethnicity. Bowman’s unique work proposes that personal development and faith development influence the way one deals with the crises of dying and grief work.

What do Socrates, Hypatia, Giordano Bruno, Thomas More, and Jan Patocka have in common? First, they were all faced one day with the most difficult of choices: stay faithful to your ideas and die or renounce them and stay alive. Second, they all chose to die. Their spectacular deaths have become not only an integral part of their biographies, but are also inseparable from their work. A "death for ideas" is a piece of philosophical work in its own right; Socrates may have never written a line, but his death is one of the greatest philosophical best-sellers of all time. Dying for Ideas explores the limit-situation in which philosophers find themselves when the only means of persuasion they can use is their own dying bodies and the public spectacle of their death. The book tells the story of the philosopher's encounter with death as seen from several angles: the tradition of philosophy as an art of living; the body as the site of self-transcending; death as a classical philosophical topic; taming death and self-fashioning; finally, the philosophers' scapegoating and their live performance of a martyr's death, followed by apotheosis and disappearance into myth. While rooted in the history of philosophy, Dying for Ideas is an exercise in breaking disciplinary boundaries. This is a book about Socrates and Heidegger, but also about Gandhi's "fasting unto death" and self-immolation; about Girard and Passolini, and self-fashioning and the art of the essay.

A Pulitzer Prize–winning, #1 New York Times bestseller, Angela’s Ashes is Frank McCourt’s masterful memoir of his childhood in Ireland. “When I look back on my childhood I wonder how I managed to survive at all. It was, of course, a miserable childhood: the happy childhood is hardly worth your while. Worse than the ordinary miserable childhood is the miserable Irish childhood, and worse yet is the miserable Irish Catholic childhood.” So begins the luminous memoir of Frank McCourt, born in Depression-era Brooklyn to recent Irish immigrants and raised in the slums of Limerick, Ireland. Frank’s mother, Angela, has no money to feed the children since Frank’s father, Malachy, rarely works, and when he does he drinks his wages. Yet Malachy—exasperating, irresponsible, and beguiling—does nurture in Frank an appetite for the one thing he can provide: a story. Frank lives for his father’s tales of Cuchulain, who saved Ireland, and of the Angel on the Seventh Step, who brings his mother babies. Perhaps it is story that accounts for Frank’s survival. Wearing rags for diapers, begging a pig’s head for Christmas dinner and gathering coal from the roadside to light a fire, Frank endures poverty, near-starvation and the casual cruelty of relatives and neighbors—yet lives to tell his tale with eloquence, exuberance, and remarkable forgiveness. Angela’s Ashes, imbued on every page with Frank McCourt’s astounding humor and compassion, is a glorious book that bears all the marks of a classic.
