Do you repeatedly replay events that have already happened? Or do you find yourself projecting into the future, anticipating what hasn't yet happened--and may not.

It sounds simple; it is difficult to do. One-day-at-a-time Therapy helps you to focus on today, to let go of painful memories of your past and your fears of the future. It encourages you to see yourself as a child, happy and loved and in control of your own life. It affirms that God is very close to you--and that God is now!

Handbook for Those Who Grieve

product image
$12.95
• How can I best help someone who has lost a loved one?
• How do I talk to a child about the death of a family member?
• What do I need to think about before I plan a funeral?
 
Confusion, bewilderment, and a lack of direction commonly surface in the aftermath of a death. It’s also the time when dealing with the issues and emotions of the experience can lead to making hasty or unwise decisions.
 
In this revised edition of Handbook for Those Who Grieve, Martin M. Auz and Maureen Lyons Andrews offer concise, practical, topic-based lists and suggestions to help people immediately after a loss. Rather than philosophizing, theologizing, or rationalizing, the authors draw on their research and personal experiences to provide short but solid answers to help grieving people successfully deal with the countless issues and varied emotions that a person’s death is sure to thrust upon them.

Being Mortal

product image
$16.00

Named a Best Book of the Year by The Washington Post, The New York Times Book Review, NPR, and Chicago Tribune, now in paperback with a new reading group guide

Medicine has triumphed in modern times, transforming the dangers of childbirth, injury, and disease from harrowing to manageable. But when it comes to the inescapable realities of aging and death, what medicine can do often runs counter to what it should.

Through eye-opening research and gripping stories of his own patients and family, Gawande reveals the suffering this dynamic has produced. Nursing homes, devoted above all to safety, battle with residents over the food they are allowed to eat and the choices they are allowed to make. Doctors, uncomfortable discussing patients' anxieties about death, fall back on false hopes and treatments that are actually shortening lives instead of improving them.

In his bestselling books, Atul Gawande, a practicing surgeon, has fearlessly revealed the struggles of his profession. Now he examines its ultimate limitations and failures-in his own practices as well as others'-as life draws to a close. Riveting, honest, and humane, Being Mortal shows how the ultimate goal is not a good death but a good life-all the way to the very end.
