Imagine a world where hospitals closed at 5 p.m., where trains and buses stopped at the end of the day, and where emergency service calls were directed to voicemail with the setting of the sun. Despite our reliance on these services, there is very little help and support available to those who deliver them—until now. In this compelling book, Audra Starkey educates her readers on how to mitigate some of the adverse health eff ects of being awake when everyone else is winding down their day or sleeping. Learn how to: • implement relaxation techniques at the end of a shift instead of relying on medications to fall asleep; • lose weight and minimise weight fluctuations by focusing not only on what to eat, but also when; • reduce some of the debilitating effects of stress, anxiety and depression which can lead to burnout; and • navigate disruptions to your personal and social life. The fact is the world needs people to work 24/7, but if you’re one of them—you need to stay healthy too. Arm yourself with valuable information to nurture your mind, body, and spirit with the lessons and strategies in Too Tired to Cook.

There are an estimated 10 million cancer survivors in America, and this number continues to grow every day as more effective treatments become available. Survivors and their families often call this phase of living after cancer the 'new normal.' This phase, however, is fraught with emotion, anxiety, fear, and joy, and many survivors and their families are not equipped to deal with these challenges. This book addresses in lively detail these issues, illustrating each with stories of survivors and current studies about survivorship.

"A trauma revolution is quietly sweeping social services in the United States. For women who have experienced domestic violence, proving that you are a "good victim" is no longer enough when navigating these institutions. Women must also show that they are recovering, as if domestic violence were a disease: they must show that they are transforming from "victims" into "survivors." Through archival research, life story interviews, and participation observation, The Politics of Surviving shows that "becoming" a survivor is full of contradictions, perils, politics, and pleasures. Using an intersectional lens, Paige L. Sweet reveals how the idea of "resilience" and being a "survivor" can become a coercive force in women's lives. With nuance and compassion, The Politics of Surviving wrestles with questions about the gendered nature of the welfare state, the unintended consequences of feminist mobilizations for these programs, and the women who are left behind by the limited forms of citizenship we offer them"--

It would be a tragic mistake to conclude any description of Gardner C. Taylor's preaching without looking very closely at the person. Whether he is in or out of the pulpit, there is the unmistakable feeling that you have come close to authentic greatness.

This book is essential reading for any survivor of child sexual abuse, female or male. Many survivors of sexual abuse have not always been believed or supported through their developmental years. They have had to cope on their own, dealing with the aftermath of the abuse in whatever ways they could. This book offers ideas and techniques for understanding and healing which adult survivors in particular may find useful. It tends to be written with women in mind, but much of the information and many of the exercises may be useful for male survivors as well. This book will also be useful for the partners, families and friends giving support and encouragement to survivors who are healing themselves from the effects of abuse. Many survivors want those around them to understand what they've survived and its effects on their life. Part 1 provides information about child sexual abuse - what it is, why children remain silent about it, some of the effects abuse can have on a survivor's life and how these can be minimised, and who the offenders are. Part 2 is for survivors, helping them to understand and to cope with their unique experience of child sexual abuse. Part 3 is specifically for supporters and caregivers of survivors.

Melisa Mel's continuing adventures volunteering with vulnerable populations are narrated here. Victims and Survivors 2 is as emotionally enlightening about human nature as Victims and Survivors was when she published it last year. Clearly, there is much work to be done in the city streets. This author is willing and prepared to do it. Melisa Mel has spent endless hours reaching out to those who felt trampled, violated, and dehumanized. By using her time and energy, she worked toward her goal of supporting and giving a ray of hope to those she encountered. She plans to continue using her free time volunteering to the highest degree possible on her limited free time. Her stories are recorded here so that we can all get a glimpse of what life is like for many of those in our society. There is much work to be done. Human trafficking and sex trafficking are very real and very present in our society. There is much need for those who are strong and have empathy to go out and advocate for those who are not yet strong enough to do so for themselves. Together, a shift in thinking and a major change can occur.

After the Nazis invaded Czechoslovakia in 1939, Vera Schiff and her family were sent to Theresienstadt. Touted as the "model ghetto" for propaganda purposes, as well as to deceive Red Cross inspectors, it was in fact a holding camp for famous Jews--in case the world was to inquire. For most, however, it was the last stop on the way to the gas chambers. Those "lucky" enough to remain alive faced slave labor, starvation and disease. Shiff's intimate narrative of endurance recounts her and her family's three years in Theresienstadt, the challenges of life under postwar communism, and her escape to the nascent and turbulent state of Israel.

A sympathetic, compassionate, and inspiring guide for parents—from the founders of one of the first Christian ministries for parents of LGBTQ children. Greg and Lynn McDonald had never interacted with members of the LGBTQ community until they discovered that their son was gay. Without resources or support, they had no idea how to come to terms with this discovery. At first they tried to “fix” him, to no avail. But even in the earliest days of their journey, the McDonalds clung to two absolutes: they would love God, and they would love their son. “An essential resource for Christian parents of LGBTQ kids,” (Matthew Vines, Executive Director of The Reformation Project) this book follows the McDonald family’s journey over the next twenty years, from a place of grief to a place of gratitude and acceptance that led the McDonalds to start one of the first Christian ministries for parents of LGBTQ children. Based on their experience from counseling and coaching hundreds of struggling Christian parents, they offer tools for understanding your own emotional patterns and spiritual challenges. They also help you experience a deeper relationship with God while handling difficult or unexpected situations that are out of your control. You will discover tested principles, patterns, and spiritual lessons that can change the way we all see our families, and help Christians at large think through Christ-like ways to respond to the LGBTQ community. Written in an unvarnished, honest, reassuring, and relatable voice, this is a practical guide for parents and a roadmap to learning to love God, the people He created, and the church, even when they seem to be at odds.

Fourteen-year-old Joey Campbell knows that he is lucky to be one of the survivors of the school fire. But really, how much luck is involved when he is the lone student to stand up during a fire drill? The only one who insists on getting out of the classroom? Joey’s best friend, Maureen, thankfully decides to follow, but the remaining twenty-four people in Room E201 are swallowed in the mysterious blaze that engulfs their school. Other than Joey's classroom, the rest of the students heed the fire alarm and survive, but grief-stricken parents and classmates have no one to lash out against except Joey and Maureen. Behind a fence that his dad builds for their own safety, Joey deals with rage, sorrow, and helplessness in equal measure. Some solace can be found within the pages of his journal, but ultimately he must face the living in order to accept everyone and everything that is dead and gone.
