Love Earth Now

The Power of Doing One Thing Every Day (Environment, Green Living, for Fans of Zero Waste Home or Power of Now)

By Cheryl Leutjen

Silver Nautilus Book Award Winner! 
Merge Environmentalism and Spirituality─Attain a State of Eco-Mindfulness and Sustainable Living

What can you do for the environment? Do you find yourself wondering what on Earth you can do about the serious environmental challenges we face today? Do you worry there’s nothing any one person can do that will make a difference? Most people say they would like to do something to make the world a better place, but they just don’t believe they have the time, energy, money or power to do anything that will make a real difference. Are you willing to devote 20 minutes a week to find out? Environmental activist Cheryl Leutjen has the planet’s back and is betting you do too. Her powerful book of inspired ideas and eco-mindfulness calls upon us all to Love Earth Now.

Conservation and sustainable living. Love Earth Now invites us to explore our thoughts and feelings about the waste and negative environment impacts we see daily. Drawing from her experiences as an engineering geologist, environmental law attorney, small shop owner, and mindfulness practitioner, Cheryl also reminds us about the importance of simplicity. All our possessions and constant shopping are no better for us than they are for the planet itself. They contribute to landfills and create a tech-tethered society that is increasingly isolated. Both helpful and hopeful, Love Earth Now is brimming with creative ideas we can all try. Get closer to a sustainable lifestyle, one day at a time.

Practice Eco-mindfulness. Cheryl’s book of planetary self-help and eco-mindfulness is a deeply thoughtful and lucid look at the state of our “big blue marble,” our beautiful earth. It's also a sourcebook of direct actions─large and small─we can all take to ensure our children and their children’s children have a healthy future on this planet.

If you liked reading books such as Vitamin NThe Sound of a Wild Snail Eating, or Braiding Sweetgrass, you'll enjoy the award-winning Love Earth Now.

Recover from Job Loss with the Support of Other Women

Women who read this book will find examples that inspire and enable them to move forward after the trauma of being fired. The successful women in Betrayed by Work show how they reclaimed and rebuilt their personal power and careers after they were rendered powerless by their employers—and offer practical tools for your own job loss recovery.

Emotionally, getting fired is one of life’s most difficult experiences. When women get fired, it is often devastating, traumatic, and isolating. We experience a sudden powerlessness that can destroy our confidence and feelings of self-worth. We grieve. We feel broken. It affects our self-esteem, our financial well-being, our professional identity, and our ability to look for other work—in short, it affects our entire way of life. How, then, does a woman navigate the emotional impact of this event? With other women.

You are not alone. In Betrayed by Work, authors Julie Erickson, MBA and Suzanne K. Vosburg, PhD bear witness to the stories of women just like you—and just like them. This book shows how women lost their jobs, describes what happened to them immediately and in the aftermath, validates women’s feelings about being fired, and offers a source of hope and companionship to those of us coping with either our own job loss or the sudden job loss of someone we know or love. In reading this book, discover:

  • True stories from women who are honest about how they were fired and what they felt while being let go
  • Key points to help process each story and apply its lesson to your own experience
  • Practical takeaways and suggestions to help you cope in the immediate aftermath of your job loss

If you were encouraged by personal growth books about women in business like In the Company of Women by Grace Bonney, Presence by Amy Cuddy, or Power Moves by Lauren McGoodwin, then you’ll be inspired and empowered by Betrayed by Work.

#1 New Release in Eastern Philosophy, Taoism

Everyone deserves a peaceful journey, regardless of age or gender, religious affiliation or political preference. With more than 3.5 million copies sold, this beautifully curated collection of daily quotes about life  seeks to influence the way you live the next 24 hours. The result of more peaceful days? A more peaceful planet.

Peace is always possible, even in the midst of a storm.

Featuring inspirational quotes about finding peace and honoring love, this positive thinking book offers the perfect touchstone at this crucial time in history—a time when millions are seeking quiet moments and mindful meditation.

Today can open the door to a new way of living. Love can be a powerful influence in our lives. It’s the total absence of judgment. It’s pure acceptance. It is the inner voice reminding us that all is well and God is present, right here and right now. The overwhelming peace we feel is all the evidence we need of God’s constancy. The expression of love quiets our minds and we are flooded with inner peace. How much gentler our lives would be if we dispensed with all expressions but love. But we don’t live in a world that truly values peace. What if we can turn away from constant judgment and offer love instead, in every situation? By doing so we will be sowing peace.

If you’re looking for inspirational books, mindful gifts, quotes about thinking positive, or mindfulness books for adults—or enjoyed books like A Year of Positive Thinking or 5-Minute Daily Meditations—then you’ll love Each Day a Renewed Beginning.
