Your marriage is more than a sacred covenant with another person. It is a spiritual discipline designed to help you know God bette...r, trust him more fully, and love him more deeply. Scores of books have been written that offer guidance for building the marriage of your dreams. But what if God s primary intent for your marriage isn t to make you happy . . . but holy?

This book may very well alter profoundly the contours of your marriage. It will most certainly change you. Because whether it is delightful or difficult, your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God, and to a spiritual integrity that, like salt, seasons the world around you with the savor of Christ.

In today s increasingly complicated world, it s often difficult for parents to connect with their daughters-and especially so for ...fathers. In this unique and invaluable guide, Dr. Meg Meeker, a pediatrician with more than twenty years experience counseling girls, reveals that a young woman s relationship with her father is far more important than we ve ever realized.

Inside you ll discover: the essential virtues of strong fathers-and how to develop them, the cues daughters take from their dads on everything from self-respect to drugs, alcohol, and sex, the truth about ground rules (girls do want them, despite their protests), the importance of becoming a hero to your daughter, the biggest mistake a dad can make-and the ramifications, the fact that girls actually depend on their dads guidance into adulthood, steps fathers can follow to help daughters avoid disastrous decisions and mistakes, ways in which a father s faith-or lack thereof-will influence his daughter, essential communication strategies for different stages of a girl s life, true stories of "prodigal daughters"-and how their fathers helped to bring them back.

Perfect for expecting parents who want to provide a soothing home for the newest member of their family, The Happiest Baby on the ...Block, the national bestseller by respected pediatrician and child development expert Dr. Harvey Karp, is a revolutionary method for calming a crying infant and promoting healthy sleep from day one. In perhaps the most important parenting book of the decade, Dr. Harvey Karp reveals an extraordinary treasure sought by parents for centuries an automatic ?off-switch? for their baby s crying. No wonder pediatricians across the country are praising him and thousands of Los Angeles parents, from working moms to superstars like Madonna and Pierce Brosnan, have turned to him to learn the secrets for making babies happy. Never again will parents have to stand by helpless and frazzled while their poor baby cries and cries. Dr. Karp has found there IS a remedy for colic. ?I share with parents techniques known only to the most gifted baby soothers throughout history ?and I explain exactly how they work.? In a innovative and thought-provoking reevaluation of early infancy, Dr. Karp blends modern science and ancient wisdom to prove that newborns are not fully ready for the world when they are born. Through his research and experience, he has developed four basic principles that are crucial for understanding babies as well as improving their sleep and soothing their senses: The Missing Fourth Trimester: as odd as it may sound, one of the main reasons babies cry is because they are born three months too soon. The Calming Reflex: the automatic reset switch to stop crying of any baby in the first few months of life. The 5 ?S s?: the simple steps (swaddling, side/stomach position, shushing, swinging and sucking) that trigger the calming reflex. For centuries, parents have tried these methods only to fail because, as with a knee reflex, the calming reflex only works when it is triggered in precisely the right way. Unlike other books that merely list these techniques Dr. Karp teaches parents exactly how to do them, to guide cranky infants to calm and easy babies to serenity in minutes?and help them sleep longer too. The Cuddle Cure: the perfect mix the 5 ?S s? that can soothe even the most colicky of infants. In the book, Dr. Karp also explains: What is colic? Why do most babies get much more upset in the evening? How can a parent calm a baby in mere minutes? Can babies be spoiled? When should a parent of a crying baby call the doctor? How can a parent get their baby to sleep a few hours longer? Even the most loving moms and dads sometimes feel pushed to the breaking point by their infant s persistent cries. Coming to the rescue, however, Dr. Karp places in the hands of parents, grandparents, and all childcare givers the tools they need to be able to calm their babies almost as easily as?turning off a light.

After being dumped by his longtime girlfriend, twenty-eight-year-old Justin Halpern found himself living at home with his seventy-...three-year-old dad. Sam Halpern, who is "like Socrates, but angrier, and with worse hair," has never minced words, and when Justin moved back home, he began to record all the ridiculous things his dad said to him: "That woman was sexy. . . . Out of your league? Son, let women figure out why they won t screw you. Don t do it for them." "Do people your age know how to comb their hair? It looks like two squirrels crawled on their heads and started fucking." "The worst thing you can be is a liar. . . . Okay, fine, yes, the worst thing you can be is a Nazi, but then number two is liar. Nazi one, liar two." More than a million people now follow Mr. Halpern s philosophical musings on Twitter, and in this book, his son weaves a brilliantly funny, touching coming-of-age memoir around the best of his quotes.

Though Dr. Mary T. Newport has provided professional care to newborns since 1983, she s led a double life since 2000 when she beca...me a caregiver at home. That s when her beloved husband, Steve, first showed signs of Alzheimer s disease. After his deterioration accelerated in 2004, Dr. Newport began avidly researching ways to keep him functional for as long as possible. Since she understands medical terminology and scientific methods, she was thrilled to find new research showing that medium- chain fatty acids, which act like an alternative fuel in the insulin-deficient Alzheimer s brain, can sometimes reverse or at least stabilize the disease. When she gave Steve about 2 tablespoons of coconut oil (a source of these fats) at breakfast before a memory test that he had previously failed, Steve miraculously passed the test. Since then, Steve continues to maintain improvement while taking daily doses of coconut oil and MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) oil with meals. Dr. Newport s story of Steve s reprieve from Alzheimer s provides hope for caregivers eager to learn about readily available fatty acids in foods that may reverse the ravages of this dreaded disease. Changes in loved ones may take many forms, including improved memory, return of personality, resumption of activities and social interaction, and relief from certain physical symptoms. Because ketone esters, a synthesized form of these powerful fatty acids, work faster and more comprehensively than fatty acids in foods, Dr. Newport has become an ardent advocate for ketone ester research, with FDA approval her final goal. Caregivers for the more than 5 million people in the United States who suffer from Alzheimer s disease are searching desperately for hope, relief, and a cure. They will find all that in this book that summarizes Dr. Newport s research and Steve s reprieve, the importance of medium-chain fatty acids, and how Alzheimer s patients can make the transition to a healthy diet rich in these vital fats.

Written after his wife s tragic death as a way of surviving the "mad midnight moment," A Grief Observed is C. S. Lewis s honest re...flection on the fundamental issues of life, death, and faith in the midst of loss. This work contains his concise, genuine reflections on that period: "Nothing will shake a man or at any rate a man like me out of his merely verbal thinking and his merely notional beliefs. He has to be knocked silly before he comes to his senses. Only torture will bring out the truth. Only under torture does he discover it himself." This is a beautiful and unflinchingly homest record of how even a stalwart believer can lose all sense of meaning in the universe, and how he can gradually regain his bearings. Read More

"What kind of person do I want my child to be?" There are hundreds of books that give parents advice on everything from weaning to... toilet training, from discipline to nutrition. But in spite of this overwhelming amount of information, there is very little research-based advice for parents on how to raise their children to be well rounded and achieve their full potential, helping them learn to take on life s challenges, communicate well with others, and remain committed to learning. These are the "essential life skills" that Ellen Galinsky has spent her career pursuing, through her own studies and through decades of talking with more than a hundred of the most outstanding researchers in child development and neuroscience. The good news is that there are simple everyday things that all parents can do to build these skills in their children for today and for the future. They don t cost money, and it s never too late to begin. In Mind in the Making, Ellen Galinsky has grouped this research into seven critical areas that children need most: (1) focus and self control; (2) perspective taking; (3) communicating; (4) making connections; (5) critical thinking; (6) taking on challenges; and (7) self-directed, engaged learning. For each of these skills, Galinsky shows parents what the studies have proven, and she provides numerous concrete things that parents can do starting today to strengthen these skills in their children. These aren t the kinds of skills that children just pick up; these skills have to be fostered. They are the skills that give children the ability to focus on their goals so that they can learn more easily and communicate what they ve learned. These are the skills that prepare children for the pressures of modern life, skills that they will draw on now and for years to come. Mind in the Making is a truly groundbreaking book, one that teaches parents how to give children the most important tools they will need. Already acclaimed by such thought leaders as T. Berry Brazelton, M.D., David A. Hamburg, M.D., Adele Faber, and Judy Woodruff, Mind in the Making is destined to become a classic in the literature of parenting. Read More

Moving her young family to her husband s hometown in northern France, Karen Le Billon is prepared for some cultural adjustment but... is surprised by the food education she and her family (at first unwillingly) receive. In contrast to her daughters, French children feed themselves neatly and happily eating everything from beets to broccoli, salad to spinach, mussels to muesli. The family s food habits soon come under scrutiny, as Karen is lectured for slipping her fussing toddler a snack "a recipe for obesity!" and forbidden from packing her older daughter a lunch in lieu of the elaborate school meal. The family soon begins to see the wisdom in the "food rules" that help the French foster healthy eating habits and good manners from the rigid "no snacking" rule to commonsense food routines that we used to share but have somehow forgotten. Soon, the family cures picky eating and learns to love trying new foods. But the real challenge comes when they move back to North America where their commitment to "eating French" is put to the test. The result is a family food revolution with surprising but happy results which suggest we need to dramatically rethink the way we feed children, at home and at school. Read More
