Caregiving Both Ways

By

#1 New Release in Caregiving ─ Overcome the Language Barrier of Dementia

When a parent, spouse, sibling, or loved one is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia, it can be difficult to know what to do. Your day can spiral into a never-ending series of tasks and attempts to communicate that leave you both frustrated. Instead of burning out, discover a new approach. When your loved one behaves differently than they used to, they’re just communicating in a new way. As caregivers, the most important thing we can do is learn that new language.

Navigate the caregiving relationship: In Caregiving Both Ways, Molly Wisniewski offers essential advice for getting to know your loved one and yourself during this new phase of life. Learn to balance your priorities, avoid burning out, and honor self-care. Molly will teach you how to navigate the difficult moments with techniques she’s mastered from years of experience working with people with dementia.

Prepare for each stage of care: Caregiving Both Ways is divided into two parts. First, learn how to care for your loved one with dementia and prioritize your new role as caregiver. Next, discover how to build a strong support system with help from professional caregivers and how to prepare for end-of-life care.

In Caregiving Both Ways, you’ll find worksheets, exercises, and essential tips for smart, empathetic caregiving. You'll learn how to:

  • Use non-medical interventions to reduce anxiety
  • Prioritize and make time for your own care and mental health
  • Identify triggers that may cause confusion in your loved one
  • Handle difficult medical decisions
  • Provide support and validation through all stages of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia

Readers who turned to Alzheimer’s books like The 36-Hour DayWhen Reasoning No Longer Works, and Creating Moments of Joy Along the Alzheimer's Journey will love the compassionate approach of Caregiving Both Ways.

God and Love on Route 80

By

#1 New Release in Mysticism, Miracles & Philosophy ─ A Story of Faith, Love, and Destiny for Everyone on a Spiritual Journey

Once every generation comes a book so revelatory and lucid, it reconnects us to our very souls. Stephen G. Post’s God and Love on Route 80 is such a book. Post, lead author of the bestselling When Good Things Happen to Good People, was the perfect child and A-student until he took off in the family car, compelled by a persistent vision, his “blue angel dream.” Crossing America on Route 80, his unlikely adventure culminates in a shocking encounter that sets the stage for the rest of his life, a path connected by synchronicities which Post perceived as guidance from God and proof of humanity’s fundamental oneness, Infinite Mind. Truly a story for the ages, God and Love on Route 80 touches on the essential meaning of life and the messages we may all miss unless we begin paying close attention.

There are no coincidences in this world. God and Love on Route 80 is the highly entertaining true story of a cross-country road trip and a spiritual journey that led one young man to the discovery that a powerful force carries us toward our destinies. Many scriptures teach of an eternal, Infinite Mind beyond space and time that creates and sustains the universe. The divine Mind whispers and winks at us as we move through our everyday lives to reassure us that the journey is meaningful after all, even when we stumble.

The goodness of the universe is greater than ourselves. This book is for dreamers and questers of any spirituality who are looking for positive meaning and purpose in life. On the road, we can find God, redemption, forgiveness, and the understanding that we are all connected.

Readers inspired by modern classics such as Peace Like a RiverBecoming Supernatural and When God Winks at You will love God and Love on Route 80.

Sex After Grief

By

#1 New Release in Sacred Sexuality, Winner of the American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA) Writing Award in Service/Self-Help ─ Reclaim Your Sexuality After Loss

An Honest Approach to Hard Questions: Sex is complicated at the best of times—but when we’re overcome by grief, it’s especially mysterious and confusing. How do we nurture ourselves as sexual beings when we’re grieving the death of a partner? Why does taking care of ourselves sexually matter at a time when we’d rather hide under the covers and wail? How do we know when it’s time to open ourselves to the sexual phase of a new relationship? And how do we do it?

A Grief Book like No Other: Sex after Grief is the first book to address sex and grief together and treat sex as a normal, positive, life-affirming part of emerging from such a difficult time. Joan Price, the top expert on senior sex, draws on her own experiences as a widow since 2008, when she lost the love of her life to cancer. She shares her raw grief journey, sexual reawakening (and the many stumbles along the way), and attempts to dip back into dating, along with excellent advice on handling each step.

Recovery on Your Own Timeline, in Your Own Way: As Price says, there’s no right or wrong method or timeline for bringing our sexuality back into into our lives, whether it’s with our own hands, a friend with benefits, a hook-up, a new companion, or any combination. Sex After Grief includes a variety of people’s personal stories from folks of all genders and orientations. Some jumped into sex quickly. Some took years. Some withdrew from sexual possibility. No one was wrong, and no choice is defective or shameful.

Sex After Grief includes:

  • Inspiring tales of how different people brought sex back into their lives after the loss of their spouse or partner
  • Guidelines for dating again and getting sexual with a new person
  • Reasons that solo sex is healthy and can be the path to feeling sexual again
  • Advice from therapists, grief counselors, and sex coaches
  • Self-help takeaways for creating an action plan

Readers of Modern LossThe Grief Recovery Handbook and Second Firsts will grow from and appreciate Sex After Grief.

The Buddha's Guide to Gratitude

By

Find Happiness in Gratitude

The four keys to the Gate of Heaven: As it turns out, Buddha had quite a lot to say on the subject of gratitude, including citing it as one of the four keys to the Gate of Heaven. Why is this? Perhaps the sheer simplicity of gratefulness is a key, as it is available to all of us at any time. Even in the midst of over-busyness, stress, and chaos, we can find plenty to be glad about, and The Buddha’s Guide to Gratitude will start your journey towards Zen and gratefulness.

Count your blessings: According to Buddha, “You have no cause for anything but gratitude and joy.” Being thankful is one of the most powerful tools we humans have to attain peace of mind and happiness. Take time each day and count your blessings. This can be done with a prayer or mindfulness mediation, whichever works for you. This lovely, uncomplicated approach featured in The Buddha’s Guide to Gratitude could be life-changing.

Increase your happiness: Studies show―and experts counsel―that gratitude is a key component of our happiness. People who are grateful about events and experiences from the past, who celebrate triumphs instead of focusing on losses or disappointments, tend to be more satisfied. Gratitude can help us transform our fears into courage, our anger into forgiveness, our isolation into belonging, and another’s pain into healing. Follow the advice of Buddhist leader Thich Nhat Hanh, “With all I have experienced in my own life, the power of gratitude stands above everything else. In your mindfulness practice, use gratitude until it becomes your way of life.” The Buddha’s Guide to Gratitude will show you the way.

Inside The Buddha’s Guide to Gratitude, we have provided you with positive thinking “power tools” that will help you build a more grateful life, including:

  • Mindful meditations
  • Hands-on exercises
  • Profound practices
  • Inspiring quotations
  • Space for notetaking and journaling
  • Thought-provoking questions

Searching for That Self-Help High

“Inspiring and hilarious, Zen Bender perfectly captures our misguided quest for perfection….” — Patricia Velasquez, actress in Arrested Development and The Mummy, author of Straight Walk, supermodel, and UNESCO Artist for Peace.

Yahoo Finance Best Business Books of 2019 and #1 New Release in Yoga, Zen Philosophy, and Humor

Craving a quick fix. When the recession turned her life upside down, Stephanie Krikorian had to reinvent her life...and fast. She started ghostwriting self-help books for women. Between writing and researching she realized that everywhere she looked there was AFOG (another freaking opportunity for growth). Soon she wasn't just writing each book; she was living them. This was the start of a ten-year zen bender of dieting, dating, journaling, meditating, and Marie-Kondo-ing on a quest for that ultimate self-help high.

Fifty and fabulous. Stephanie Krikorian spent her forties trying all of the dating hacks to find love and respect, all of the diets to build self-esteem in a new body, and all of the spiritual guidance to become centered through self-care. On the brink of turning fifty she realized that being better wasn't what she craved; it was something else altogether.

A Self-confidence book for women. For anyone tired of promises to change everything in just thirty days, this book is a breath of fresh air. Zen Bender is the story of one woman's journey to radical acceptance, with some questionable advice along the way. A witty, moving, insightful story, the woman behind bestselling celebrity self-help books shares her story of being hooked on the self-help fix for a decade before learning that all the self-help in the world won't help you trust your gut.

Readers who enjoyed self-confidence books for women like The Universe Has Your BackThe Self-Love Experiment, or The Gifts of Imperfection; will love Zen Bender: A Decade-Long Enthusiastic Quest to Fix Everything (That Was Never Broken).

Decompress Your Stress

Anxious Art is for readers and doodlers seeking relief from anxiety and stress through meditative, creative processes.

What if we took our stress and used it to create art that brings us peace?

A 2016 study at Drexel university that examined the effects of creative activity on reducing levels of the stress hormone cortisol discovered that “45 minutes of art making…resulted in statistically significant lowering of cortisol levels.” We all know cortisol is the stress hormone, so grab a pen or pencil and let the meditations and writing prompts in this mindfulness journal take you on a calming journey to a healthier, happier mind.

T.S. Eliot once said, “Anxiety is the handmaiden of creativity,” but if he had this creative journal during times of worry, he surely would have said creativity was the handmaiden to peace. With this friendly, calming companion, you will find that you are much more present in the here and now.

A unique guided journal that will calm and inspire: When used as self-expression, creativity can allow us to take part in what psychologists call “sublimation,” or the transformation of negative or socially unacceptable impulses into socially acceptable or even beautiful creations. Anxious Art offers inventive prompts, art projects, and affirmations to inspire artistic activities that distract from feelings of distress and anxiety. As you experience this transformative guided journal, you will work with:

  • Lyrical affirmations that build self-confidence and reduce fear
  • Therapeutic writing exercises that root you in the present and spark joy
  • Doodling that calms your emotions
  • Guided breathing exercises that bring you into the present moment

The Dog Writers Association of America awarded Nita Sweeney a Maxwell Medallion for excellence in writing about the Human/Animal Bond for her memoir, Depression Hates a Moving Target: How Running with My Dog Brought Me Back from the Brink.

It’s never too late to chase your dreams. Before she discovered running, Nita Sweeney was 49-years-old, chronically depressed, occasionally manic, and unable to jog for more than 60 seconds at a time.

In her memoir, Sweeney shares how she overcame emotional and physical challenges to finish the race and come back from the brink.

There’s hope and help on the track. Anyone who has struggled with depression knows the ways the mind can defeat you. However, it is possible to transform yourself with the power of running. You may learn that you can endure more than you think, and that there’s no other therapy quite like pavement beneath your feet.

Become Who You Were Always Meant To Be

Readers of The 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins or Believe Bigger by Marshawn Evans Daniels will love Hatch Leap Soar.

Transform into your best self. Transformation is at the heart of Hatch Leap Soar, which reveals principles to help you become your best self. LaToyia Dennis likens the process to that of a baby bird inside an egg, ready to… Hatch. Before you can begin to change and start realizing your potential, you are in your comfort zone inside your shell. When you begin the process of hatching, you're defying the norm, pressing past your fears and breaking free.

Discover real freedom. Once you've hatched, you can see possibilities. You are now open to achieving your goals, to being who you want to be. You start to think, "Oh my gosh, as soon as I get out of here I can do this," because now you can see it. But in order to get out of your shell, you have to make a... Leap. This could be a leap in a completely different direction than you've ever gone before. You have to move out of your current position, out of whatever comfort zone or shell you are in. In Hatch Leap Soar, LaToyia shows you just how important it is to believe that you are better freed from your shell than you are stuck inside.

Reach true success. In order to reach your full potential, you must move toward it. Things won’t come to you if you're sitting in your shell. Opportunities and change won’t happen if you are standing still. You have to leap or jump or move forward. A bird never learns to fly by staying in the nest. A bird has to leap out to learn to… Soar. And Hatch Leap Soar will teach you how to do just that. Once you learn to soar, you can fly high and free. You can reach your potential.

Hatch Leap Soar is the ultimate self-help and motivational book for women everywhere who are asking themselves, "Who am I?" After reading this book, you will:

  • Build confidence
  • Live a life of true freedom and success
  • Love who you are

Want

Rediscover Love and Desire after Sexual Assault

Readers of The Body Keeps the ScoreThe Deepest Well and Trauma Stewardship should read Want: Recovering Desire after Sexual Assault.

Have the courage to heal. We know, increasingly, how common and devastating sexual violence is for women, but we don’t always talk about how survivors can recover from the trauma and return to desire, sexuality, trust, and pleasure. Want is the story of how Julie Peters did just that—and how you can, too.

Move past the fog of trauma.  In the years after the assault, Julie was in what she calls the fog of trauma: the colorless, tasteless experience of barely getting through the day. No one—not counsellors, support groups, or other survivors—could give her any advice about how to find the desire that could bring her back to joy, intimacy, and connection. She had to make it up on her own. In Want, Julie tells the story of getting from the devastation of trauma to living a full life in eight sometimes challenging, often bumbling, and occasionally delightful steps.

Experience hope, healing and recovery. We have plenty of stories about the helplessness, frustration, and vengeful feelings that can follow trauma. Culturally, we have started a conversation about these experiences, and we’re all confused about what this all means for our relationships with each other. We need stories of hope, healing, and recovery. Survivors of assault, if you've been thinking to yourself, "I thought it was just me," Julie is here to show you that you are not alone. Your loved ones may not know how to support you, but they can learn more about your experiences and how to walk alongside you through this book, just as you can learn how to recover from the trauma you've experienced. Want offers a window into one person’s experience of recovery—plus the happy ending we all need to know is possible after trauma.
