Not What I Expected from the Author: Rita Eichenstein PhD. Finalist for a Books for a Better Life Award A pediatric neuropsychologist presents strategies to help parents of special-needs children navigate the emotional challenges they face. As diagnosis rates continue to rise for autism, ADHD, learning disabilities, and other developmental differences, parents face a maze of medical, psychological, and educational choices – and a great deal of emotional stress. Many books address children’s learning or behavior problems and advise parents what they can do to help their kids, but until Not What I Expected: Help and Hope for Parents of Atypical Children there were no books that explain what the parents are going through - and how they can cope with their own emotional upheaval – for their own sake, and for the wellbeing of the whole family. With compassion, clarity, and an emphasis on practical solutions, Dr. Rita Eichenstein's Not What I Expected: Help and Hope for Parents of Atypical Children walks readers through the five stages of acceptance (similar to the stages of grief, but modified for parents of special-needs kids). Using vivid anecdotes and suggestions, she helps readers understand their own emotional experience, nurture themselves in addition to their kids, identify and address relationship wounds including tension in a marriage and struggles with children (special-needs and neurotypical), and embrace their child with acceptance, compassion and joy. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Joy During The Journey from the Author: Bud Lee. The author was just your average guy trying to make a living and at the same time have a family he could be proud of. But like so many other men, things didn’t work out the way he imagined. He found while he was successful in business, he was a failure in marriage relationship. Since this failure was unacceptable to him, he set out to find a way to be better at relationships. Along the way he discovered God and accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior. He also married a girl who was willing to be patient while he learned from God. For a lot of people the story could’ve ended right there, but for the author he wanted more than just a church membership. Because of his wanting more, and his appetite for investigation, which he used in his business. The Holy Spirit saw this as an opportunity to take the author on a journey of discovery. As the book unfolds the author has incidents that happened in his life defying the laws of coincidences, and so slowly, so ever slowly, the author starts admitting to himself God is in charge, and is taking him on a journey. Each step of the journey has been orchestrated to teach the author a specific lesson he will use in later years. Each of these steps the author has put into a separate chapter, because each of these steps was an unexpected surprise to the author.

Not What I Expected from the Author: F. Wayne Mac Leod. If we are honest with ourselves, life has not always turned out as we expected. As youth we imagined life with great ambition and romance. The fairy tale that was to be our life, however, was shattered by reality. The nation of Israel also had her ideas of what freedom from bondage of Egypt would look like and their notions of what God would do for them. Exodus 16:3 has a lot to tell us about Israel's expectations and notions of God. It has some important lessons for us as we face the disappointments and detours of life. This study is a look at Exodus 16:3 and its application as we face the disappointments of life.

Das Dunkle Herz Des Waldes from the Author: Naomi Novik. Agnieszka liebt das Tal, in dem sie lebt: das beschauliche Dorf und den silbern glänzenden Fluss. Doch jenseits des Flusses liegt der Dunkle Wald, ein Hort böser Macht, der seine Schatten auf das Dorf wirft. Einzig der »Drache«, ein Zauberer, kann diese Macht unter Kontrolle halten. Allerdings fordert er einen hohen Preis für seine Hilfe: Alle zehn Jahre wird ein junges Mädchen ausgewählt, das ihm bis zur nächsten Wahl dienen muss – ein Schicksal, das beinahe so schrecklich scheint wie dem bösen Wald zum Opfer zu fallen. Der Zeitpunkt der Wahl naht und alle wissen, wen der Drache aussuchen wird: Agnieszkas beste Freundin Kasia, die schön ist, anmutig, tapfer – alles, was Agnieszka nicht ist. Niemand kann ihre Freundin retten. Doch die Angst um Kasia ist unbegründet. Denn als der Drache kommt, wählt er nicht Kasia, sondern Agnieszka.

Das Ja Experiment Year Of Yes from the Author: Shonda Rhimes. Shonda Rhimes schreibt Drehbücher für die erfolgreichsten Serien: Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice und How to Get Away with Murder sind auch hierzulande Publikumsrenner. Bloß beim Drehbuch für ihr eigenes Leben fehlt ihr der nötige Schwung: Privat ist sie schüchtern, ängstlich, menschenscheu. Bis sie eines Tages beschließt, sich zu ändern. Mit einem fi lmreifen Trick: einfach ein Jahr lang zu allem Ja sagen. Ebenso witzig und selbstironisch wie ihre TV-Serien und zugleich schonungslos ehrlich beschreibt Rhimes die große Wirkung eines kleinen Wortes, das aus ihr einen neuen Menschen macht – glücklich, selbstbewusst und 60 Kilo leichter. Die wahrscheinlich unterhaltsamste und motivierendste Aufforderung, das eigene Leben mutiger zu gestalten!
