Melissa's Gift

Description: Melissa’s Gift, a memoir (ISBN 978-0-9836179-3-8) by psychotherapist, teacher, consultant and public speaker Olin Dodson, available now from Bay Tree Publishing. In August 1990, a solitary, unmarried man received a phone call from a stranger who informed him that he was the father of an eleven-year-old child who wanted to meet him. Melissa, who lived with her mother in a small town in Costa Rica, had the incurable disease known as cystic fibrosis. Melissa’s Gift recounts Olin Dodson’s extraordinary relationship with his daughter. Written with elegance, beauty and power, Melissa’s Gift is an unforgettable story and a deeply moving reading experience. “Melissa’s Gift takes us on a thrilling, roller-coaster ride in scenic settings—from rural Costa Rica to Colorado’s Rockies. But at its heart, this story is a family drama unlike any you’ve ever read. It features a man and his daughter who—in the face of great obstacles—never let go of their dreams. The lessons the father learns (often unwillingly) will inspire many to love more deeply. Melissa’s Gift is a must read for every daughter, every father, for everyone who loves at all.” —Isabel Stenzel Byrnes, MSW, MPH, co-author of The Power of Two.

A Year With God

A Year with God

Description: A Year with God is a daily devotional for men and women focusing on Bible passages where God actually spoke to his people. The author follows each reading with a brief explanation about the context and how readers can benefit from its message in their own daily challenges. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to hear God speak? Adam knew the sound. Moses and Abraham talked with God. But the concept is so strange to us. We hear people talk all the time. There are probably people talking around you as you read this. Are their words helpful to you? Can their words change your life? A Year with God is a 365-day study on the words God spoke to His people in the Old Testament and how those words reveal His nature. “In reading what God actually said, we can discover what really matters to God,” Nettlehorst says. Each day’s reading focuses on scriptures where God is specifically quoted—in conversation with someone, revealed in a dream, or presented by an angelic proclamation. From topics like hope, faith, and joy to fear, doubt, and sadness, A Year with God takes the very words of God and applies them to life’s daily challenges.

A Beautiful Zen Children's Book!

"Maybe (A Little Zen for Little Ones)"

Description: Based on an ancient and beloved Zen fable, “Maybe (A Little Zen for Little Ones)” is about a wise girl who experiences a series of events that at first seem lucky (or unlucky) but then turn out to be quite the opposite. A bike disappears, but then she gets a new one. She hurts herself, but then she enjoys a nice day at home. For each incident, was what happened good luck? Maybe. Was it bad luck? Maybe. Or, perhaps the girl simply does not get caught up in the emotion of the moment, because she can never know what that event might lead to, good or bad . . . A Little Zen for Little Ones™ puts classic and new Zen stories in an accessible context for today’s kids (and adults!). With children as central characters and narratives that reflect modern culture, these stories help us examine our values as our world becomes more complex and confusing. After all, if our children can get a little bit of Zen in their lives, perhaps they’ll grow up to be adults with a little bit of Zen as well. Wouldn’t that be great for all of us?

Troubled Childhood, Triumphant Life: Healing From The Battle Scars Of Youth

Troubled Childhood, Triumphant Life

Description: TROUBLED CHILDHOOD, TRIUMPHANT LIFE: Healing from the Battle Scars of Youth (March 2010, New Horizon Press) by James P. Krehbiel, Ed.S., LPC, CCBT, is an indispensable step by step guide to release the shame, neglect and anguish of repressed emotions from hurtful upbringings, which we try to erase instead of dealing with. Krehbiel calls this “magical illusions.” Seeking to gain the approval and validation of parents who were absent, abusive or dysfunctional, we act out destructive behavior as adults becoming self-defeating, pessimistic and unable to experience joy. Deterred from being comfortable and happy, adults who can’t let go of their troubled childhoods risk repeating this damaging chain of events with their own children. Giving productive tips and advice, Krehbiel lays the foundation for new beginnings and provides the tools necessary for leaving the demons behind. He interprets the thoughts and behaviors of children in response to inadequate parenting, imparts methods of untwisting faulty and detrimental thinking and shows how to sort through pain to discard what didn’t work so the destructive cycle does not repeat.

The #1 New York Times Best Seller Go The F**k To Sleep

Go the F**k to Sleep by Adam Mansbach with illustrations by Ricardo Cortés

Description: A gift book for parents that will have them laughing even as they cry. "A new Bible for weary parents."--New York Times "Incredibly appealing."--NPR "What makes this latest book seductive is not so much its profanity as its articulation of verboten thoughts . . . letting parents off the hook for their self-recrimination and guilt over bedtime seems the most cathartic tonic."--New York Times "A parenting zeitgeist . . ."--Washington Post Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don't always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland. Profane, affectionate, and radically honest, California Book Award-winning author Adam Mansbach's verses perfectly capture the familiar--and unspoken--tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night. In the process, they open up a conversation about parenting, granting us permission to admit our frustrations, and laugh at their absurdity. With illustrations by Ricardo Cortés, Go the F**k to Sleep is beautiful, subversive, and pants-wettingly funny--a book for parents new, old, and expectant. You probably should not read it to your children.

The Problem With Women... Is Men: The Evolution Of A Man's Man To A Man Of Higher Consciousness

The Problem with Women... is Men by Charles J. Orlando

Description: The Problem with Women… is Men: The Evolution of a Man’'s Man to a Man of Higher Consciousness is an in-depth look into stereotypic men today and the challenges women have surviving with them in long-term relationships and marriage. Written entirely from a man'’s point-of-view and experience—, and based on 10 years of real-world research and hundreds of interviews—, The Problem with Women…... is Men offers a humorous, blunt, tell-all examination of men, their issues, their refusal to change, and showcases both how women can maintain their sense of empowerment and individuality throughout their relationships, as well as explaining to men (perhaps at long-last) what women say they are looking for in a man. Through his highly-acclaimed book, author Charles J. Orlando explains the evolutionary path he took —from womanizer to upstanding husband, father, and female empowerment advocate. It was a journey that rejects long-held tenets of male behavior; his ever-present pursuit of living comfortably in his own skin. It is the same path he found his true brethren on, albeit struggling with a lack of guts and/or direction with which to channel their characteristics. It is a path of principles and character; clearly going against the grain of society, but critical for men to enlighten themselves, raise their consciousness to a higher plane.

A roller-coaster ride of laugher, tears, and reversals of fortune that boldly says, “If you stop chasing your dreams, you’re already dead.” And, now, it’s a book!
