Bestselling author of Return to Love and Law of Divine Compensation, Marianne Williamson shows people how to live without fear or worry in The Gift of Change. The time in which we now live is more difficult and stressful than people are willing to admit. We live with an abiding sense of collective anxiety. Williamson shows how we are paralyzed in our current state of fear and anger because we are not facing and dealing with the true causes of our anxieties and fears. Williamson reveals that fear and worry do not need to be the only tools in our tool box for dealing with problems in the world. As we learn to trust God and the love that surrounds us and guides us, we will see that what causes us pain is an opportunity for growth, healing, and miracles that can transform us and our world. Williamson delivers hope and healing as she illuminates ten basic changes that each of us can make as we learn to view the world through the eyes of love instead of fear.

In The Gift of Change, the author discusses the aspects and causes of change, the qualities of change, and the different circumstances that altered responses can create.

Sprinkled throughout The Gift of Change are insightful quotes to be used as quick reminders of your commitment to change in moments of confusion or forgetfulness. Several Playsheets are also included to enable the reader to engage in the process for their individual growth.

Author: Edith Eva Eger
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
This practical and inspirational guide to healing from the award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of The Choice shows us how to stop destructive patterns and imprisoning thoughts to find freedom and enjoy life. Edith Eger’s powerful first book The Choice told the story of her survival in the concentration camps, her escape, healing, and journey to freedom. Oprah Winfrey says, “I will be forever changed by Dr. Eger’s story.” Thousands of people around the world have written to Eger to tell her how The Choice moved them and inspired them to confront their own past and try to heal their pain; and to ask her to write another, more “how-to” book. Now, in The Gift, Eger expands on her message of healing and provides a hands-on guide that gently encourages us to change the thoughts and behaviors that may be keeping us imprisoned in the past. Eger explains that the worst prison she experienced is not the prison that Nazis put her in but the one she created for herself, the prison within her own mind. She describes the twelve most pervasive imprisoning beliefs she has known—including fear, grief, anger, secrets, stress, guilt, shame, and avoidance—and the tools she has discovered to deal with these universal challenges. Accompanied by stories from Eger’s own life and the lives of her patients each chapter includes thought-provoking questions and takeaways, such as: -Would you like to be married to you? -Are you evolving or revolving? -You can’t heal what you can’t feel. Filled with empathy, insight, and humor, The Gift captures the vulnerability and common challenges we all face and provides encouragement and advice for breaking out of our personal prisons to find healing and enjoy life.

Publisher: TBR Books
The emergence of newer international standards and the focus on STEM education are transforming entire educational sectors. Yet, as schools focus more attention to developing global competencies and 21st century skills in their pedagogy, it has become critical to re-engage educators and school communities with the goals of language education, multilingualism, and multiliteracy while promoting interconnectedness, empathy, and mutual comprehension among our youth. With this in mind, it is important to understand the potential of multilingual education as it can serve our societies’ new expectations, and provide the right tools for success to our younger generations. The Gift of Languages: Paradigm Shift In U.S. Foreign Language Education explores the many advantages of multilingual education and sets the stage for a new paradigm in our approach to teaching and learning languages. The book touches on the issue of foreign language deficit in the United States and the changes that need to occur in our schools to better serve our children and our linguistic communities. The book also explores the growth of dual-language education in recent years and explores the connection between both multilingual programming and solving the United States’ foreign language problem. The discussion on language education in the United States has never been neutral; moreover, it has traditionally provided substantive direction and exerted significant authority over educational policy. Yet, this debate needs to move towards viewing multilingual education as an essential approach for our society, and as something that should be prevalent among educational policymakers. The audience for this book includes educators, language teachers, school leaders, school boards, program directors, scholars, and policy makers particularly if they want to join forces in building the future of education and investing in the multilingual capital of our nation. This book is part of The Bilingual Revolution Series. Praises We are at a critical point in our nation in which we can continue to hold on to our monolingual past, or embrace a multilingual and more inclusive future. The Gift of Languages helps us prepare and understand the necessary paradigm shift to adopt and implement a multilingual curriculum and mindset in our schools and communities. Co-authored by two pioneers and experienced experts in the bi- and multilingual education space, the book is a must read for educators, policy makers, community leaders, students, and interested parents who want to make meaningful changes now. – Andrew H. Clark, Ph.D. Chair, Dept. of Modern Languages & Literatures, Fordham University The Gift of Languages should awaken all Americans, especially the policy makers, for the need to raise future generations of multilingual citizens to compete and thrive in our global community. One of our founding fathers and presidents, Thomas Jefferson, spoke to and acted upon the need for teaching languages when he founded the University of Virginia; as a nation, we have not lived up to his words and actions. Let us remind ourselves that we started out a linguistically and culturally diverse group of peoples that came together to build a strong nation over the years. Linguistic diversity is the gift that our nation needs to give itself! – Francesco L. Fratto President, The Foreign Language Association of Chairpersons and Supervisors “Mastering languages is essential for communicating with and understanding others, respecting each other, and appreciating our heritages and our roots. The Gift of Languages offers an invaluable toolbox for policy makers, educators, families and students who are already working in the field of language and those who hope to create the kind of paradigm shift that the authors advocate. The book provides cogent arguments in favor of expanded language learning at all levels, and especially argues in favor of expanding the breadth and variety of multilingual educational opportunities already spreading in public school systems from Utah to Louisiana to New York and beyond. The authors cite examples of the “Bilingual Revolution” already underway and provide the kinds of arguments and examples that resonate for educators and drive policy towards furthering the way we value language education in the United States. The book is indispensable for anyone interested in the future of foreign language education.” – Jane F. Ross, Ph.D. President and Founder, French Heritage Language Program Over 60% of people on the planet are bilingual or multilingual — which suggests that this is the norm for human beings — and multiple studies demonstrate the cognitive, social, political, and financial benefits of bilingualism. Yet in the United States, we regularly hear news stories about people being shamed, bullied, and sometimes violently harmed for speaking other languages, even when they also speak English. Accessibly written, this book offers detailed arguments for both why and how the nation should embrace and promote linguistic diversity. Options for adults are expertly addressed, yet the authors invest even greater passion and detail in promoting early educational programs in which no child is left monolingual. I can think of no better way to shift our nation’s view of itself from “English Only” to “English Plus” and create a more inclusive society. We need a roadmap, and this book clearly lays out the territory and possible trajectories as it motivates us to make the journey. – Kimberly J.

Category: Family & Relationships
Every generation faces a unique set of challenges that are, simultaneously, opportunities for positive transformation. we arrive at the challenges of our generation strengthened and informed by what I consider to be two great gifts from previous generations: Improved Material Conditions and Hard-earned Insight. Our opportunity, and perhaps obligation, as millennials is to understand and apply these principles underlying their success, and to adapt, evolve, and refine them. This is the gift the generation before us has left for us. it is then our gift to the generations after us to take the lessons we've received and further enhance them with our own new principles then pass it along. The next generation should do the same, gifting the generation after them, and so on. By following these principles as they are passed down, each generation will be able to live a satisfying and successful life and will be enabled to make their own contribution (however humble) to human progress. Using lessons learned from my Granddad's experience of escaping poverty, surviving a war, then going on to build a good life for himself and his family, and being part of a generation who created sweeping, transformational change, this book passes on hard-won time-tested wisdom, tools, and techniques that can help us make a transformational multi-generational difference.

Repentance is a gift—because coming to the realization of ourselves as sinners opens our hearts to the gospel. And while consciousness of our sins is uncomfortable, it is also a cause for hope. In those feelings of guilt, says popular Scripture commentator Kevin Perrotta, God is calling us to return to him. The first three sessions of this Bible study are designed to spur readers to reflect on their own experience of recognizing their sins and taking action against them. The second three sessions focus on Jesus, who calls us to grow in love beyond anything that is easy or comfortable for us—and enables us to do it by nourishing us with himself.

Insofar, however, as the gift is framed by the economic logics, it turns out to be
automatically cancelled, destroyed. It is so because a gift, which leads to a return

This volume presents some contributions to the 6th conference of the EERA network 'Tacit Dimensions of Pedagogy': 'Education is Relation not Output? Scenes of Knowledge and Knowledge Acquisition'. The symposium was motivated by the fact that some perspectives of Humanities, for example those from the Educational and the Cultural Sciences, are not always present in the current discourses on university. Considering the point of view of these scientific disciplines, the idea of university and scholarly life means, firstly, to freely develop the idea of university. Secondly, it means to critically examine the conditions for academic work, e.g. in terms of current policy discourses. Fundamental for this is the idea of university as a society in which everyone is responsible for the shaping of her/his relationships to him-/herself, to others and to the world based on diverse forms of knowledge and knowledge representation. In this volume, this idea will be developed from historical, conceptual, and practical perspectives.

The Gift of Generations is a comparative study of aging and the social contract in Japan and the United States. By using original, systematically comparable data collected in these countries, the book explores the different cultural definitions of vulnerability and giving, and the ways they shape and constrain the social strategies of routinizing helping arrangements. The book succeeds in interweaving the theory and practice of the social contract by developing the concept of symbolic equity.

When you are diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, you could use a coach and all the advantages that you can find. Bipolar is a serious illness that requires an integrated approach to solving the enigma. This is an informal guide that pulls no punches and talks about everything from sexual promiscuity to manic spending to delusions of grandeur. Over twenty years, I have learned to lessen its power over my existence. It can become less of an illness and, over time, more of an opportunity. We need to look at bipolar in new ways to get different results. Having a reassuring friend who’s been there makes the difference. I teach many basic, easy to learn approaches. A recent test reader, who was in the mire of illness, described the book as a bridge out: she returns to The Bipolar Guide to review the principles that helped her to live. I strive in this book to take alternative approaches to work through the negative illness traits to plug into the gift side. I have been through the highs and the lows of manic-depression and have embraced the advantages, and continue to live an enhanced life. I promote responsibility in this book—there are no excuses, just potential. You can harness bipolar to serve you: it is a tough break-in of the wild horse, but it is possible. We need to look at bipolar in new ways. People need friendly assurance and prodding to surmount the challenges of bipolar. This is a bold responsible approach to living successfully with Bipolar Disorder. Two decades of tough manic-depression lessons are passed to you. This informal guide will be your friend and coach to assist you in finding your own way: we need to learn new approaches to attain different results in our lives.

Throughout history, social and intellectual crises have given rise to compelling suggestions for reform steeped in various progressive sensibilities. For example, within the discipline of criminology -- particularly during the 1980’s and 1990’s -- a number of unconventional theoretical perspectives emerged that sought to challenge many of the assumptions embedded within its own mainstream discourse, and to propose alternative solutions for meaningful, sustainable change. Conceived of as "critical" in overarching orientation, these efforts to rethink the foundations of criminological verstehen can be traced to several specific theoretical and methodological strands of inquiry (e.g., anarchism, peacemaking, chaos theory, postmodernism). Though distinct in some respects, these emerging models are linked paradigmatically by their shared discontent with conventional criminological thought and by their radicalized posture toward existing and previously unexamined epistemic crises. Collectively, this is an agenda for reform that seeks to establish a more humane and just social order, particularly as citizens and society confront the institutional and communal problems posed by crime, delinquency, and deviance. Theory, Justice, and Social Change: Theoretical Integrations and Critical Applications represents a provocative series of essays that systematically reviews or extends the role of critical social theory in fostering justice and change in several relevant, though problematic, social contexts. Mindful of the need to address both conceptual exegeses and pragmatic concerns, the articles contained in this volume grapple with the ongoing "double crisis" that confronts theory and practice in the construction of knowledge. By appropriating and integrating various insights from several heterodox and critically animated lines of inquiry, each chapter deftly exposes where and how conventional sociological and criminological thought has failed to effectively address such human social issues as homelessness, mental illness, minority rights, juvenile justice, global violence, and criminal punishment. In doing so, Theory, Justice, and Social Change provides new and much needed direction regarding theory development in the social sciences, and indicates why charting such a course of theory/action yields more enlightened prospects for justice and change in society and in our lives.

Uncover the Gift is about Tammi's life journey and lessons she learned along the way. Her goal in writing this book is to encourage the lives of others as they are on their journey. Isaiah 61: 1-3 says, "The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified." This verse was given to her one morning during one of her times of prayer and Bible study. It was at that moment she felt a specific call from God to minister to people who fit this description. Little did she know, at the time, the life journey she would have to take in order to gain understanding and compassion for those walking in a life of brokenness and bondage. As this book unfolds, the promise of God has come to pass, and she prays that many will be set free and live life in the fullness of what Jesus Christ died to give. Uncover the Gift is about finding the value of who you are in Christ and realizing no matter where your life takes you, you can bring Christ to the forefront and know He truly is walking and living right there with you.

Maybe: A simple yet powerful mindset for coping with stress and worry Allison Carmen spent many years fighting a powerful addiction. It wasn’t drugs, alcohol or fame. It was an addiction to certainty. If she didn’t know what the future would bring – and who does? – she felt anxious and afraid. This decades-long struggle followed her through college, marriage, parenthood, and a successful law career. While everything seemed fine from the outside, Allison was in a constant battle that was unwinnable, sapping her energy, attention, and spirit. Until the day she discovered The Gift of Maybe. Maybe is a simple yet powerful philosophy that has transformed Allison’s life, and the life of her many clients (now that she has ditched her legal career and has become a successful life coach). The message is this: In the face of uncertainty, Maybe opens your mind and heart. It creates a little space for hope. It allows you to take a deep breath, stay in the present, and forge your own path. Many things in life are beyond our control, but the mindset of Maybe presents a simple, powerful way to stay connected to what’s possible, and work to make it happen. It is just one change of perspective, but Maybe it changes everything!

Drawing from the pages of her many private diaries and journals, Janeah Rose, an intuitive consultant and healer, shares stories of her life, her clients, and her gifts. Written with candour and humour, her memoirs start with her own tale. When she was a child, her family began to notice the young girl's innate intuitive abilities and wisely nurtured them. Janeah's story would be incomplete without the stories of the clients who have become friends over the years. Their gratitude inspires her own; she thanks each of these people who have shared their lives and loved ones with her. By inviting her into their private worlds, they have enriched hers as well. Throughout the years, she has helped them recognise the need to change their life path, sometimes with the support of loved ones who have passed over. Filled with true stories that are by turns uncanny, unbelievable, and heartwarming, Janeah's memoir explores metaphysics from all dimensions. Even in the midst of uncertainty, challenges, and obstacles, she has used her extraordinary gifts of intuition, visions, and spirit guides, along with her inner voice, to help people get back on track and on a path to discover their own purpose and gifts. With certainty, clarity, and hope, she explores how embracing such an unexpected path can empower anyone willing to take the journey to self-discovery.
