The God Box: Sharing My Mother´s Gift of Faith, Love and Letting Go: Mary Lou Quinlan
When Mary Lou Quinlan’s beloved mother, Mary Finlayson, dies, her family is bereft - until Mary Lou searches for her mother’s ´´God Box´´, her private cache of notes to God on behalf of family, friends, and strangers. To Mary Lou’s amazement, she finds not one but 10 boxes stuffed with hundreds of tiny petitions that span the last 20 years of her mother’s life. Note by note, Mary Lou unearths a treasure of her mother’s wishes and worries and insight. Mary asked God for everything from the right flooring for her daughter’s home to a cure for her own blood cancer. Her requests, penned on scraps of paper, were presented without expectation - the ultimate expression of letting go. Follow Mary Lou’s emotional journey as she uncovers her mother’s innermost thoughts - nostalgic, surprising, and even shocking. As she recalls life with the woman who was her best friend, Mary Lou discovers her own more empathetic, engaged self - the woman her mother had believed in all along. Poignantly narrated, The God Box is a gift for every mother, every daughter, every person who, regardless of beliefs, trusts in the permanence of love and the power of family. 1. Language: English.

Lev comes to realize that his decision will affect not only the two worlds he inhabits, but also the sanctitiy of his family and, most importantly, the future of his young son. ´´Extraordinary . . . No one but Chaim Potok could have written this strangely sweet, compelling, and deeply felt novel.´´-The Cleveland Plain Dealer In his powerful My Name is Asher Lev, Chaim Potok gave the world an unforgettable character and a timeless story that The New York Times Book Review hailed as ´´little short of a work of genius.´´ The Chicago Sun-Times declared it ´´a story that had to be told.´´ Now, Chaim Potok´s beloved character returns to learn, to teach, to dream, in The Gift of Asher Lev.

In a powerful blending of memoir and practical strategies from a medical doctor?s perspective, The Gift of Caring: Saving Our Parents ? and ourselves - from the Perils of Modern Healthcare reveals the hidden side of modern healthcare practices for aging Americans. This ground-breaking book, co-written by award-winning author Marcy Houle and nationally-recognized geriatrician and public health advocate, Elizabeth Eckstrom MD MPH, sheds new light on aging by showing it from twin perspectives: the story of a daughter desperately seeking help for the parents she loves, and a geriatrician who offers life-changing strategies that can protect our loved ones and ourselves.Today, for many older adults, the medical delivery system is confusing, fragmented, and ill-equipped to provide comprehensive, person-centered care. Under our current healthcare model, thousands of aging persons face unnecessary suffering, hospitalizations and nursing home stays, and even preventable death.Seniors and families often feel powerless as they travel this sad journey. Not having knowledge of aging?s changes, they resign themselves to believing there is nothing anyone can do to help, while some health care professionals simply write off symptoms seniors endure as ?just old age.?But as Marcy Houle discovered in caring for her parents, many of the problems often are not ?just old age.? Further, the real issue is not that the answers to ease suffering don?t exist. Rather, what we need to know is generally not available to the general public. Even more concerning, many health care professionals have had little or no training in the care of older adults.The Gift of Caring hopes to change that. It is written to give empowerment to all older adults, family members, and health care professionals, by sharing much needed knowledge and practical strategies. The Gift of Caring shows the best ways to advocate for our parent?s health care ? and our own ? by giving us the tools we need to insist upon the better way.Your parents and you deserve the best healthcare as you age- But there are so many reasons why that?s not happening.You can change that.

You were born for this. God hardwired you - yes, you - for this. I´m talking about sharing Jesus with others. What if I told you evangelism is less about delivering a polished presentation and more about having a real conversation? What if I told you that God has created you to bring glory to himself by sharing Jesus with others and that you don´t need years of training to obey what he already made you to do? God created you for his glory to advance his gospel with the gifts, talents, and opportunities he gave you. You live at this time in history for a purpose bigger than yourself. In this audiobook you will hear how to connect the gospel story with your story and how to talk about that story in normal conversations with people you know. No gimmicks. Nothing clever. No need to freak out. Just you, Jesus, and others - in conversations that matter. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Wes Bleed.

Sharing isn´t new. Giving someone a ride, having a guest in your spare room, running errands for someone, participating in a supper club - these are not revolutionary concepts. What is new in the ´´sharing economy´´ is that you are not helping a friend for free; you are providing these services to a stranger for money. In this book, Arun Sundararajan, an expert on the sharing economy, explains the transition to what he describes as ´´crowd-based capitalism´´ - a new way of organizing economic activity that may supplant the traditional corporate-centered model. As peer-to-peer commercial exchange blurs the lines between the personal and the professional, how will the economy, government regulation, what it means to have a job, and our social fabric be affected? Drawing on extensive research and numerous real-world examples, Sundararajan explains the basics of crowd-based capitalism. He describes the intriguing mix of ´´gift´´ and ´´market´´ in its transactions, demystifies emerging blockchain technologies, and clarifies the dizzying array of emerging on-demand platforms. He then considers how this new paradigm changes economic growth and the future of work. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Vikas Adam.
