Daily reflections to kickstart your day. Start each morning this year with the words of bestselling author, counselor, and minister Hugh Prather.

These daily meditations ask us to reflect on the spiritual task ahead of us.

I Will Not Die an Unlived Life

By

It’s Never Too Late to Live Your Life

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

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 Anyway or The Open Mind, then I Will Not Die an Unlived Life is your next read!

Life Is A Race and With So Many Responsibilities It Can Feel Overwhelming

We are always on the go. Balancing work, family, friends, and everything in between is a routine of running and never stopping─a cycle that can be tiring. We forget the beauty of the smaller moments and sometimes we forget ourselves.

Stopping is a gift to yourself. Knowing when to breathe and regain a clearer vision of yourself and your surroundings helps give you a fresh perspective and an inner balance meant to help you feel in control of the bigger things.

Who are you? What are your true priorities? Your responsibilities may have taken over and are preventing you from living to your fullest potential. Dr. Kundtz gives you insights into key questions you should be asking.

Stop whatever you’re doing and enjoy the sunrise. Big things can grab your attention but don’t forget to turn around and find the serenity in stillness─the peace in a deep breath, and the happiness in remembering who you are.

  • Connect with the spiritual aspects of your life
  • Acknowledge when it becomes too much and take a step back
  • Use proper coping tactics to create healthier habits

Soul Moments

By

Synchronicity--the occurrence of meaningful coincidence--has fascinated scholars and ordinary folks alike for centuries. While Carl Jung and others have dealt with the theory of synchronicity, until now no one has highlighted the stories themselves. Phil Cousineau has put together a fascinating collection of these intriguing stories from wellknown authors such as Huston Smith and Larry Dossey, as well as people from many other walks of life. Borrowing examples from literature, poetry, myths, and movies such as Casablanca, Cousineau shows that synchronicity is an unfolding, a sudden connection to our soul and destiny. Recognizing these soul moments help us follow the thread of our lives and sense the invisible bonds that connect us.

Kids' Random Acts of Kindness

By

Want to Feel Hopeful About the Future?

Share in inspirational stories of generosity written by children of all ages that reveal their surprisingly insightful feelings about kindness and compassion.

Look back at why the Random Acts of Kindness series was such a sensation. When the adult version of Random Acts of Kindness was first published, hundreds of teachers across the country gave assignments to their students to write about unsolicited acts that they had experienced or initiated. Teachers sent the results to Conari Press which then put out a call for similar stories in a teacher’s magazine. Stories poured in and the result was Kid’s Random Acts of Kindness. Whimsical and funny to moving and thoughtful, Kid’s Random Acts of Kindness helps restore your belief in the potential for goodness in man.

In Kid’s Random Acts of Kindness, you will see how children are the truest examples of open-hearted giving:

  • Kids are hopeful. They believe they can change, easily and often. They look forward not back. They like to think about what could be, not what was.
  • Kids are possibility addicts. They’re always working on something. If you listen you’ll hear a language of hopefulness and striving, an elasticity that keeps them going and trying.
  • Kids love to master challenges. They want to try new things, move in new directions, be productive. They are risk takers, sometimes out of faith, sometimes out of desperation. More than anything else, children want and need to belong, to partner, to collaborate.

Readers of other books in the Random Acts of Kindness series and motivational books and stories like Chicken Soup for the Soul: Random Acts of KindnessA Pebble for Your ThoughtsI've Been Thinking…, and You Can Do All Things will love the encouraging, inspirational stories in Kid's Random Acts of Kindness.
