Summary

Christmas is the most famous holiday of the year, and the word itself evokes images of Santa Claus, reindeer, snow, Christmas trees, egg nog and more. At the same time, it represents Christianity's most important event, the birth of the baby Jesus. Instantly, well known Christmas carols ring in your ears, pictures of the Nativity Scene become ubiquitous, or maybe you even picture nutcrackers or Scrooge and Tiny Tim.

    If you have ever thought any of the following, “Vaccines are not for me, I'm young and healthy and don't need them”; “I rather develop natural immunity to infections, without vaccination”; “Immunisation is a personal choice, it only affects me, so I'll take the risk” then this book is for you. You would also enjoy this book if you have ever heard people articulate these beliefs and you couldn't quite put your finger on why these are common misunderstandings. 
    This book is a collection of honest conversations and discussions the author had over the years with people who have doubts and hesitations about the contents, purpose, and safety of vaccines.

    When dreams collapse . . . 
    Jon Peters had it all: record-breaking high school baseball pitcher, on the cover of Sports Illustrated, a beautiful girlfriend. He was going to play professional baseball. He was going to have everything he'd ever wanted. Until a shoulder injury and four surgeries changed his life. With dreams shattered, Jon struggled to find value and happiness. After years searching vainly to make sense of it all, alcohol, a suicide attempt, deep-seated anger, and a failed marriage made him feel even more desperate. 
    When new dreams come . . . 
    In the worst place of his life, he reached out and found help and hope. Trading in his old dreams for beautiful new ones birthed out of the ashes of his past, he’s at last found value, fulfillment, and purpose. Now in When Life Grabs You by the Baseballs, Jon shares the secrets he’s learned to living a happy life. His message is universal: no matter what dreams you've lost or what demons you’re battling, you too can find hope, redemption, and joy.
