    We all have a story. Most of our stories have bumps and bruises that leave us at the fork in the road as to where to go next, feeling alone on the journey of life.

Readers who follow the "Reshaping Reality" exercises will: gain tools to reshape programmed beliefs; discover what cycles you are stuck in and ways to break them; learn how to break patterns of self destruction; explore ways to reshape your inner child; and empower mind, body and spirit by taking an active approach to your life.

    You have likely heard one or more of the following statements: Drinking coffee sobers a person up; Alcoholism is not a disease ; cancer is a disease; alcoholism is a choice - put down the bottle; and letting your teen drink at home teaches them how to drink safely. Whether any of these sound familiar or you've questioned any number of the other common presumptions about drinking alcohol, "Crossing the Line from Alcohol Use to Abuse to Dependence," by author Lisa Frederiksen, from is for you. It can be used by parents, students, people worried about their drinking, clinicians, policy makers, law enforcement officials, doctors, social workers, family law attorneys, medical school students, and treatment center providers, the list is endless.

    Written as alternating poems and stories, "Through Whose Eyes: Rise Child of God," by author Jacqueline Rainey, is a book filled with inspiration. Even when people seem farthest from God, caught up in poverty, in addiction, or when humanity turns against them, Rainey makes it clear that God is present and ready to lend aid. A few of the stories include: “Turning Corners,” about a streetwalker running from the call of God; “Clean” about how a woman’s faith in God is tested when she is raped; and “Waiting for God” about a girl’s experiences in the foster system. Several other stories and poems tell of difficult lives and high-risk behaviors, and how God can heal any situation.

Let him be the coach who will lift your spirits, challenge you to go the extra mile, and fulfill your life's wishes every day.Have you ever wondered: How to have the most fulfilling relationship you can imagine?; Why you keep ending up in the same situations over and over again?; How to get the job of your dreams?; What does it really mean to be a successful human being? Singer invites you to find the answers to these and other questions through meditations and journaling exercises on "Your Daily Walk with the Great Minds."

    The greatest achievements in human history have been attained by those individuals who strive to elevate themselves above the everyday ebb and flow of life. This yearning to achieve is central to our search for happiness. We want to laugh, to sing, and to feel good at the end of the day as much as we might wish to do anything else. Happiness is an art. If you wish to practice this art, you must first decide that it is something that you want, above everything else. People that choose to be happy will at some point wake up to a day filled with smiles, joy, and laughter. If they are lucky, they will remember that day, focus on its high points, and strive to repeat it. Before too long, another happy day will appear, seemingly out of the blue. People around them will wonder why they seem to be so different. The reason will not be found in surface changes. The "Nine Insights For a Happy and Successful Life" emerged from author Mitchell Earl Gibson's own life long desire to help thousands of people find happiness. Happiness is a gift that we bestow upon ourselves each time that we embrace the joy that breathes within. This book outlines two main themes that will guide you on the road to happiness.

    "The Imprint Journey" is like two books in one. The first section is Liliane Desjardins’ personal story of growing up during World War II in Croatia, watching the Catholic Church bless German soldiers, and seeing Nazis take her father away to a concentration camp. The fear and her family’s dysfunctional beliefs that she experienced during her childhood would still affect her decades later and an ocean away living in Canada. After marrying and becoming an alcoholic herself, her near death resulted in her transformation and recovery. The second section of "The Imprint Journey" is a dissection of just what an imprint is, and how to overcome imprints and replace them with effective and productive, life-affirming thought-patterns.
