How to Flourish Spiritually in a World that Pressures Us to Achieve
Author: Ken Shigematsu
What keeps us from flourishing in our spiritual lives is a neglect of the inner life of the soul. And more and more today, this neglect is driven by our ambition to accomplish something big outside ourselves. We live in a society that pressures us to achieve professionally, socially, and through the constant acquisition of material possessions. Drawing on a wide range of sources including scripture, church history, psychology, and neuroscience, as well as a rich variety of stories from his own life, Ken Shigematsu demonstrates how the gospel redeems our desires and reorders our lives. He offers fresh perspective on how certain spiritual practices help orient our lives so that our souls can flourish in the midst of a demanding, competitive society. And he concludes with a liberating and counter-cultural definition of true greatness. This book will appeal to anyone who longs to experience a deeper relationship with Christ in the midst of the daily pressures to succeed, as well as to those on the borderlands of faith seeking to transcend the human tendency to define ourselves by our production and success.

Many of us have questions about the passage of life and often wonder what happens when we die. In this amazingly insightful book by medium/clairvoyant Lisa Williams, evidence of the afterlife is explored. Through various channels such as meditation, psychic readings, communication with her Spirit Guide, and a personal near-death experience, Lisa delves into the journey of the soul, discusses the different stages of the afterlife, and reveals what life is really like on the other side. Survival of the Soul addresses the myriad questions many of us have surrounding this subject, especially if we’ve gone through the painful experience of having lost loved ones. Lisa provides a reassuring glimpse into this fascinating topic by exploring the pathway to the afterlife and then to reincarnation; with the realization that death is not final, but rather a transition into the world beyond —a place that should be honored, not feared.

Stephanie, catalog buyer" If you want to boil a frog (not that you would!), start with tepid water, where the frog will swim happily.

If so, "Hot in the Pot" will awaken both your knowledge and senses to how the "real you" is boiling one degree at a time in the corporate world. Using the real-life challenges faced by a variety of corporate workers, Weber has synthesized "Twelve Principles" to help you recognize and escape the slow boil. Weber's energetic and engaging style helps you take your temperature and learn how to recover your real self at work. Use Weber's conscious balancing act to maintain your authentic, fun, and vibrant self by tossing in a few ice cubes to keep you cool!
