A Canadian teenager who was being bullied at school turned her life around using her superpower; a woman in India used her power to find her dream job when she was made redundant; an unexpected apology from an enemy; improved finances; inanimate object repairs and physical healing – these are just a few examples of superpower “miracles” shared in this book. What if you had a superpower? What if, just like a superhero, you could aim your power at anything you want to change in your life? The good news is: you do have that power. Most of us think of unconditional love as an emotion; however, it is in fact the sensation we feel when we are channeling our power. Odille specializes in training people from all walks of life to tune in to their power; fill themselves with unconditional love first, and then aim the power at specific people, situations and issues. Her simple exercises and techniques are designed to guide the reader from beginner to expert superhero.Feedback for YOU HAVE A SUPERPOWER:"Learning to send unconditional love to those parts of me that were causing me to experience fear, guilt, anger- and creating havoc in my relationships was powerful stuff, life altering! I finally understand how to channel my power through unconditional love!I love knowing that I can direct my power at anyone or any situation and change my reality in any way I choose! I love feeling my power surge through me as I experience the feeling of unconditional love!!! (I HAVE HAD TO PRACTICE AND PRACTICE THIS LOLOL BUT I FINALLY GOT IT!!!)" – Cheryl Fitzpatrick, Connecticut"I just wanted to say thank you thank you thank you for teaching me unconditional love!!! My life changed like crazy. I've used unconditional love on so many experiences and it worked 100%. It took a bit of time at first but then I got it and it worked. I changed the way everyone at school treats me (like everyone) and I got really successful at everything. I'm getting straight A's and best of all I'm not being bullied. I changed everyone that didn't like me before, it's like I'm in another world and I love it!" – Jessica Fontana, Toronto

I’d Like You More If You Were More like Me takes on one of life’s most important questions: How can I get closer to God and other people? We were created for deep connections. When people have deep connections, says John Ortberg, they win in life. When they don’t have deep connections, they cannot win in life. I’d Like You More if You Were More like Me offers help in overcoming one of the biggest obstacles to making deep connections: the fact that we’re so different. Different from God and different from each other. The good news is that connectedness is not based on similarity, but on shared experiences. When one person invites another to share an experience, they’re connected. It can be sharing a beautiful sunset or a meal, having a great conversation over cup of coffee, going for walk, or even teasing somebody. And when we share those same experiences with God, we get closer to him, too. God wants to connect with us—so much that he sent his son to live as a human being. God took on flesh and shared every human experience. So we don’t have to wonder what a close relationship with God looks like anymore. An intimate relationship with God and other people doesn’t have to be a cliché, it can be a daily way of life.

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER From award-winning actress and political activist America Ferrera comes a vibrant and varied collection of first-person accounts from prominent figures about the experience of growing up between cultures. America Ferrera has always felt wholly American, and yet, her identity is inextricably linked to her parents’ homeland and Honduran culture. Speaking Spanish at home, having Saturday-morning-salsa-dance-parties in the kitchen, and eating tamales alongside apple pie at Christmas never seemed at odds with her American identity. Still, she yearned to see that identity reflected in the larger American narrative. Now, in American Like Me, America invites thirty-one of her friends, peers, and heroes to share their stories about life between cultures. We know them as actors, comedians, athletes, politicians, artists, and writers. However, they are also immigrants, children or grandchildren of immigrants, indigenous people, or people who otherwise grew up with deep and personal connections to more than one culture. Each of them struggled to establish a sense of self, find belonging, and feel seen. And they call themselves American enthusiastically, reluctantly, or not at all. Ranging from the heartfelt to the hilarious, their stories shine a light on a quintessentially American experience and will appeal to anyone with a complicated relationship to family, culture, and growing up.

“A must-have book for today's quiet warriors.” —Susan Cain, New York Times bestselling author of Quiet and Quiet Power and cofounder of Quiet Revolution How does a self-described "extreme introvert" thrive in a world where extroverts are rewarded and social institutions are set up in their favor? Using her extraordinary personal story as a "case study of one," author Jill Chang shows that introverts hold tremendous untapped potential for success. Chang describes how she succeeded internationally in fields that are filled with extroverts, including as an agent for Major League Baseball players, a manager of a team across more than twenty countries, and a leading figure in international philanthropy. Instead of changing herself to fit an extroverted mold, she learned to embrace her introversion, turning it from a disadvantage to the reason she was able to accomplish great goals and excel in tasks that her extroverted peers missed. She offers advice on the best jobs for introverts, overcoming the additional difficulties language and cultural barriers can present, thriving at social events and business presentations, leveraging the special leadership traits of introverts, and much more. Part memoir and part career guide, this book gives introverts the tools to understand how they can form relationships, advance in the career path, excel in cross-cultural workplaces, and navigate extroverted settings without compromising comfort or personality.

Puberty is a time a girl's precious body image is at stake. My Body's Superpower shows girls just how amazing and powerful their changing bodies are so they will want to take care of themselves. Each chapter utilizes the Superpower Formula: understanding what is happening inside the body (Super Knowledge), decoding body signals (Body Talk), and learning how to "time travel" to the future when making decisions. Whether it's the different stages of puberty, the reason behind intense hunger and weight gain, or feeling emotional and unsure about friends, this book has it covered. The book is divided into three parts that cover 9 superpowers: Physical Powers: Understanding physical changes during puberty and giving the body what it needs to thrive. Emotional Powers: Tuning into the inner world of feelings, choosing the best super friends, and taking time to discover more about yourself and what excites you. Outside Powers: Learning how to critically think about media messages and reduce pressure in both the "virtual" and "real" worlds. The book is even better when read alongside a trusted female adult. So it has the potential of bonding time, sharing stories, and helping both girls and women appreciate their bodies.

Publisher: Ballantine Books
The personal and poignant debut poetry collection from the award-winning singer, songwriter, and producer revolves around the emotions, struggles, and experiences of finding your voice and confidence as a woman. “I’ve realized that some feelings can’t be turned into a song . . . so I’ve started writing poems. Just like my songs, they are personal and honest. Just like my songs, they have hooks and rhymes. Just like my songs, they talk about what it’s like to be twenty-something trying to navigate a wildly beautiful and broken world.” Deeply emotional and candid, Feel Your Way Through explores the challenges and celebrates the experiences faced by Kelsea Ballerini as she navigates the twists and turns of growing into a woman today. In this book of original poetry, Ballerini addresses themes of family, relationships, body image, self-love, sexuality, and the lessons of youth. Her poems speak to the often harsh, and sometimes beautiful, onset of womanhood. Honest, humble, and ultimately hopeful, this collection reveals a new dimension of Ballerini’s artistry and talent.
