I Will Not Die an Unlived Life

Reclaiming Purpose and Passion

By Dawna Markova

It’s Never Too Late to Live Your Life

I Will Not Die an Unlived Life is a little book with a big message. It can remind you of who you are and heal your life.” ―Rachel Naomi Remen, MD, author of My Grandfather's Blessings and Kitchen Table Wisdom

In the 1980s, Dr. Dawna Markova was diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Here begins her path towards rediscovery and a purpose driven life.

Feeling lost? I Will Not Die an Unlived Life follows Dr. Markova’s journey to find deeper meaning in life. In her book she guides readers down a path where they can discover their value and purpose. When we feel lost, she points out, we can either continue to live habitual lives and resign our strength―or we can choose to follow our passions.

What is passion? It’s normal to feel stagnant, to be at a loss for energy. Dr. Markova reconceptualises feeling lost as a period of passion's rest. With this, she asks questions that challenge us to slow down and have more conversations with ourselves.

How to find yourself again. Poetic and inspiring, I Will Not Die an Unlived Life is a collection of stories with meaning. Following Dr. Markova's own journey at making her life matter, she offers readers insight into how to:

  • Find personal balance
  • Reclaim passion and purpose in life
  • Focus attention and awareness on the present moment

If you enjoyed classic beach gifts like Gift from the Sea, or books like The Book of AwakeningLet Your Life SpeakHallelujah AnywayThe Purpose Driven Life, or The Open Mind, then I Will Not Die an Unlived Life is your next read!

Create a Natural Learning Environment for Your Child

From the team that forever changed our view of how children learn, in their book How Your Child is Smart, comes a fundamental and intuitive prescription for natural learning right at home.

Natural learning starts at home. Anyone who spends time with young children recognizes their natural intelligence and resilient passion to learn.

Whether a parent or educator, Learning Unlimited helps transform the homework hassle from a nightly struggle to an engaged learning initiative that uncovers the unique gifts of your child’s mind.

Learning from your child’s natural motivation. Filled with practical advice and compassionate support, this book is designed to honor your child’s innate intelligence with family engaged learning strategies. In Learning Unlimited, veteran teachers unveil how learning from homework can also function as a joint inquiry into your child’s special gifts. Designed for optimal parental involvement in education, this guide helps parents give children a competitive advantage by cultivating a life-long love of learning.

If you’re ready to take a step towards family engaged learning and have read The Gift of FailureThe Well-Trained Mind, or The Self-Driven Child, then you’ll love Learning Unlimited.

Use mindfulness for healing and fulfillment. Paola Merrill, author and creator behind the popular YouTube channel The Cottage Fairy, left a hectic life in the city for the rural mountains in search of a deeper connection to herself and the world. She learned that nature is the biggest teacher of all—if we open our eyes to its wisdom. Mindful living can be applied in most walks of life, and Merrill’s writing encourages you to find healing and fulfillment, wherever you are.

Inside this enchanting book on mindful living, you’ll find:

  • Insight to creating a cozy and inspiring space, living in alignment with natural cycles and seasons, and gardening and making tea
  • Original illustrations and breathtaking photos of the author’s cottage, crafts, and the countryside
  • Calming, meditative prose to promote tranquility and stillness in a hectic world
