Lemons to Lemonade

By

It's what we do with the life's bummers, how we look at setbacks, what we make of the lemons that counts. And in this lighthearted, spirited book, Addie Johnson invites us to make a myriad of different things from those metaphorical lemons.

When you're stuck in a difficult time you can change your outlook and your circumstances, you can stay healthy and surround yourself with love, you can seek out and find the hidden treasure to all around you in everyday things, and, perhaps most important, you can figure out how to be grateful for anything and everything that comes your way. You never know, maybe all it will take is a little water, sugar and ice before you're feeling much better.

If I Die Before I Wake

By

Barb Rogers' book begins with the tragic death of her teenage son, Jon, and delves into the horror that was her life to that point. Due to a home life fraught with substance and emotional abuse, Barb found herself bottomed out more than once, and homeless along the way.

"When asked in early recovery if I knew any prayers, the one I could think of was the child's nighttime prayer, 'Now I lay me down to sleep.' As I thought of it, I recalled the long nights when I simply wanted to go to sleep and never wake up."

Barb learned most of her life lessons through pain, tragedy, and addiction. This is not a glamorous book, it is real and it is raw. It is not about survival of the fittest, but the weak, the hopeless, the helpless, the truly addicted, not only to substances, but to drama, anger, excuses, and justifications.

She describes how she got to her lowest point, just what it was, and how and why she finally reached out to a 12step program for help. She shows the reader what it's really like to survive, to stay clean and sober, and find a way to the other side. Recovery was one of the most difficult things she ever did, but "worth every effort I put out."

Barb Rogers would be the first to tell you she's not specialshe's led a hard life, and she tells her story well and with humorreadersaddicts or not, but especially addictsare going to find the kind of gritty inspiration, that if Barb can do it so can they, that will inspire life changes.

The Green Devotional

By

Our planet, our home, is in crisis plain and simple and this collection of quotes, poems, essays, and prayers will inspire all to actively reverse the manmade cause of global warming, stem the tide of environmental destruction, and to reconnect to the good earth. Short essays of topical interest introduce each of the eight sections of this book, and the 250 voices inside, most of them contemporary, began to harmonize together as they seem to call out for their own canonical structure -- one bounded by the ancient elements: Earth, Air, Fire, Water. This collection of voices is like a "green book of devotional hours," reminiscent of the Books of Hours medieval people used to hold in their palms. It was called "a cathedral in your hands." And like that medieval book, The Green Devotional reminds us that we are connected to something broader and wiser than ourselves. Included are selections from such people as Rachel Carson, Cornel West, Bill McKibben, Alice Walker, Sue Monk Kidd, Dean Koontz, Barbara Kingsolver, Daniel Pinchbeck, Arundhati Roy and many others. The Green Devotional ends with a section of "Closing Prayers" that prepare us no just to go to sleep but to rest up for another day of passionate action. Printed on 100% recycled paper.
