More than ½ of Americans have a close family member who is an alcoholic. Despite the scope of this problem, there are currently no books published for the broader Christian community that offer Dying for a Drink's unique combination of strong writing, compelling stories, the best in medical science and practice, and clear explication of the timeless spiritual principles of recovery. The revision of this classic work incorporates new information on topics such as:The role of mental illness, childhood trauma, and family origin issuesHuman motivation and new methods of intervention and treatmentUnderstanding the role of the Holy Spirit and the church community in recoveryPrevention and the church's role in an alcohol-saturated society

This book demystifies the process of death, yet honors the sacredness of life's final transition. Highly recommended." Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Prayer Is Good Medicine"Living until we die can be difficult. This book can guide you through that time. It is practical, spiritual, and filled with wisdom."Bernie S.

They answer with honesty and sensitivity the questions most frequently asked, such as what actually happens at the time of death. The book also deals with arranging for a meaningful memorial service and handling grief for those who are left behind. And it offers guided imagery for coping with pain and suggests literature and music to ease the passage of those whose health is irreversibly failing.From the Trade Paperback edition.
Surviving the heartbreak of a loved one's suicide - you don't have to go through it alone. Authors Beverly Cobain and Jean Larch break through suicide's silent stigma in Dying to Be Free, offering gentle advice for those left behind, so that healing can begin.
From the book: When I met with Bev Cobain and Jean Larch to discuss their forthcoming book, I knew that it was badly needed. As one who has lost a loved one to suicide, I saw that it could be an important healing tool for people like me. Dying to Be Free is everything I hoped it would be and more, its insights cutting though the silence and stigma associated with this topic. Stories throughout the book leap from the pages to touch the soul. It speaks not only to "survivors of suicide" like me, but also to anyone who may have suicidal thoughts themselves, or who have attempted it, have lived through it, and are still battling agonizing pain. We "survivors" need all the help we can get. Suicide changes the course of our lives forever. We need understanding and compassion, and if we are to survive and live well, we need education. We need to comprehend what could possibly have led to this devastating act. I learned firsthand that suicide is a death with repercussions unlike any other. ... This book will answer a great many of your questions about suicide and explain the process that clouds the mind of the suicidal person. It will help you make some sense of what you thought was a totally senseless act. I pray you will let the authors of this book take you by the hand, help you avoid the swamp of misinformation on this subject, and lead you to the truths that enlighten and make healing possible. If you have lost a loved one to suicide, or if you or someone you love has ever considered it, perhaps an angel or some Higher Power has placed this book in your hands. Please, take it home now and read it. [And if you are a teen, please involve a trusted adult in your reading of this book.]

"A must read for parents, educators, and people with dyslexia. " -Gordon F. Sherman, Ph. D. , Past-President International Dyslexia Association Did you know that many successful architects, lawyers, engineers--even bestselling novelists--had difficulties learning to read and write as children? In this groundbreaking book, Brock and Fernette Eide explain how 20% of people--individuals with dyslexia--share a unique learning style that can create advantages in a classroom, at a job, or at home. Using their combined expertise in neurology and education, the authors show how these individuals not only perceive the written word differently but may also excel at spatial reasoning, see insightful connections that others simply miss, understand the world in stories, and display amazing creativity. Blending personal stories with hard science, The Dyslexic Advantage provides invaluable advice on how parents, educators, and individuals with dyslexia can recognize and use the strengths of the dyslexic learning style in: material reasoning (used by architects and engineers); interconnected reasoning (scientists and designers), narrative reasoning (novelists and lawyers); and dynamic reasoning (economists and entrepreneurs. ) With prescriptive advice and inspiring testimonials, this paradigm-shifting book proves that dyslexia doesn't have to be a detriment, but can often become an asset for success. .

It has been an honor to share a part of their journey. Earnie could not respond to the many people who reached out to him in his final months, but he asked [in these letters] that we go to the essence of that place where our spirits cross and know that he is there for us." --Claudia Black, Ph.D., forewordBeloved recovery speaker, author, and sponsor, Earnie Larsen approached life's most difficult challenges with the goal of comforting and inspiring others.
