Summary

Seven morning and evening practices to revolutionize your life, from the bestselling author of Each Day a New Beginning.This small book can change everything if you let it. It’s Up to You is based on the twelve principles in the author's Change Your Mind and Your Life Will Follow: tending to our own gardens, focusing on solutions not problems, letting go of preconceived solutions, changing our minds, acting instead of reacting, giving up judgments, giving up trying to control, discovering our own lessons, doing no harm, quieting our minds, treating every encounter as the holy, and discerning our mind’s own truth.It’s Up to You invites readers to do three simple things: meditate, pay attention, and make choices to change their lives—for a few minutes each morning and evening, one principle a week for twelve weeks. As we reflect on Casey’s insight into the insidious ways we create misery or drama, try to impose will, and suffer needlessly, and as we follow her gentle prompts to make different choices, we begin to see that we can change just about anything in our lives by taking these small steps. As Karen Casey puts it, “Progress is guaranteed. Perfection isn’t expected.”

    In this fresh look at finding balance between work and sabbath rest, Justin McRoberts leads readers on their journey from false self to true self, discovering that growth and maturity take root in the knowledge of their belovedness in Christ. 
    In his two decades working as a full-time artist and spiritual guide, Justin McRoberts has experienced first-hand the tension between "The Hustle" and "Self Care." In recent years, that conversation has turned to argument as people have suggested that one is more important than the other. But Justin disagrees entirely with such a one-sided approach. 
    Justin says, "My natural posture is not work, nor is my natural posture rest. My natural posture is belovedness, and both work and rest spring from my belovedness, and return me to it." In this book, he uses humorous and poignant stories to help readers discover the deep truths about us being laborers for/with Christ, empowered by the Spirit, as well as worshipers of God the Father. Readers will learn howSabbath is a gift and a practice that frees us from the anxiety of proving ourselvesThey are loved and valued by God for who and whose they are—not for what they doRest is not the absence of work; it is what gives work meaningWe can love our world and the people in it through what we do 
      
    We are not tools in God's tool belt, valued only for our gifts and talents. Nor are we ascetics called to abandon "daily life" to find God in the desert and just sit there. We are beloved by the One who holds all things together . . . including our need to work and our need to rest. 
    Reflection questions are included in the audiobook companion PDF download.

    In a few short months, COVID-19 devastated the world and, in particular, the United States. It infected millions, killed hundreds of thousands, and effectively made the earth stand still. Yet America was already in poor health before COVID-19 appeared. Racism, marginalization, socioeconomic inequality—our failure to address these forces left us vulnerable to COVID-19 and the ensuing global health crisis it became. Had we tackled these challenges twenty years ago, after the outbreak of SARS, perhaps COVID-19 could have been quickly contained. Instead, we allowed our systems to deteriorate.Following on the themes of his award-winning publication Well, Sandro Galea's The Contagion Next Time articulates the foundational forces shaping health in our society and how we can strengthen them to prevent the next outbreak from becoming a pandemic. Because while no one could have predicted that a pandemic would strike when it did, we did know that a pandemic would strike, sooner or later. We're still not ready for the next pandemic. But we can be—we must be.In lyrical prose, The Contagion Next Time challenges all of us to tackle the deep-rooted obstacles preventing us from becoming a truly vibrant and equitable nation, reminding us of what we've seemed to have forgotten: that our health is a public good worth protecting.

    “The chronicle of a scientist and humanitarian on a journey of discovery into the mysteries of death and what comes after . . . [a] lovely book.”— #1 New York Times bestselling author  In the groundbreaking book, Dr. John Lerma shares his valuable research on pre-death hallucinations from the countless terminally ill patients he lovingly cares for as a doctor and director at The Medical Center of Houston, Texas. Sixteen inspirational stories chronicle children and adults confronting their deaths through the comforting visions of divine beings. By presenting these mysterious visions, synchronicities, and angelic conversations his patients encounter, Dr. Lerma shows how knowledge of death can ease the pain and fear as we prepare to enter into the light.   In this book you will learn: the exhilarating and calming elements of pre-death experiences; healing during the dying process; the difference between hallucinations and visions; and self-forgiveness and self-love as the key to a joyous life and a peaceful transition. The mystical experiences described here delve into the creation of the universe, past and future extinctions, dark angels and white angels, selfless suffering and its effect on humanity, free will as the vital ingredient to create on earth and in heaven, and many more incredible revelations. The poignant stories in Into the Light will leave you feeling uplifted in faith, hope, and love.   “Finally, a science-minded physician has addressed the phenomenon of pre-death experiences with compassion, comprehension, and candor . . . you will be uplifted and inspired by this book.”—Gary E. Schwartz, PhD, professor of psychology and medicine at the University of Arizona and author of Super Synchronicity

    When you are told that you have leukemia, your world stops. Your brain can't function. You are asked to make decisions about treatment almost immediately, when you are not in your right mind. And yet you pull yourself together and start asking questions. Beside you is your doctor, whose job it is to solve the awful puzzle of bone marrow gone wrong. The two of you are in it together. In When Blood Breaks Down, Mikkael Sekeres, a leading cancer specialist, takes listeners on the journey that patient and doctor travel together.Sekeres tells the compelling stories of three people who receive diagnoses of adult leukemia within hours of each other: Joan, a forty-eight-year-old surgical nurse, a caregiver who becomes a patient; David, a sixty-eight-year-old former factory worker who bows to his family's wishes and pursues the most aggressive treatment; and Sarah, a thirty-six-year-old pregnant woman who must decide whether to undergo chemotherapy and put her fetus at risk. We join the intimacy of the conversations Sekeres has with his patients, and watch as he teaches trainees. Along the way, Sekeres also explores leukemia in its different forms and the development of drugs to treat it—describing, among many other fascinating details, the invention of the bone marrow transplant and a treatment that targets the genetics of leukemia.
