What I Know for Sure
Candid, moving, exhilarating, uplifting, and frequently humorous, the words Oprah shares in What I Know For Sure shimmer with the sort of truth that readers will turn to again and again. As a creative force, student of the human heart and soul, and champion of living the life you want, Oprah Winfrey stands alone. Over the years, she has made history with a legendary talk show (the highest-rated program of its kind), launched her own television network, become the USA's only African-American billionaire, and been awarded both an honorary degree by Harvard University and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. From all her experiences, she has gleaned life lessons - which, for fourteen years, she's shared in O, The Oprah Magazine's widely popular 'What I Know For Sure' column, a monthly source of inspiration and revelation. Now, for the first time, these thoughtful gems have been revised, updated, and collected in What I Know For Sure, a beautiful book with a ribbon marker, packed with insight and revelation from Oprah Winfrey. Organized by theme - joy, resilience, connection, gratitude, possibility, awe, clarity, and power - these essays offer a rare, powerful and intimate glimpse into the heart and mind of one of the world's most extraordinary women, while providing readers a guide to becoming their best selves.

With nothing to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to walk eleven-hundred miles of the west coast of America and to do it alone.

Herbal Formularies for Health Professionals is a five-volume set that serves as a comprehensive, practical reference manual for herbalists, physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals. Dr. Jill Stansbury draws on her decades of clinical experience and her extensive research to provide an unparalleled range of herbal formulas. Organized by body system, each volume includes hundreds of formulas to treat common health conditions, as well as formulas that address specific energetic or symptomatic presentations. For each formula, Dr. Stansbury briefly explains how the selected herbs address the specific condition. Sidebars and user-friendly lists help readers quickly choose which herbs are best for specific presentations and detail traditional uses of both Western and traditional Asian formulas and herbs that are readily available in the United States. Volume 4 focuses on herbal formulas that are complementary therapies to treatment of peripheral nerve issues, including neuropathy and nerve trauma, and central nervous system issues such as seizures, Parkinson's disease, and dementia. A chapter on psychiatric disorders focuses on herbal therapies for common conditions such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, dissociative disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), as well as the use of herbal formulas in treatment of those dealing with drug addiction. A chapter on pain management provides herbal formulas for both acute and chronic pain conditions, including headaches, sinus pain, muscle pain, neuralgia, gastrointestinal pain, and pain from injuries. Each chapter includes a materia medica section that describes individual herbs with tips on their properties, modes of action, and the specific symptoms each plant best addresses. These formularies are also a tutorial for budding herbalists on the sophisticated art of fine-tuning an herbal formula for the constitution and overall health condition of an individual patient, rather than prescribing a one-size-fits-all treatment for a basic diagnosis. The text aims to teach by example, helping clinicians develop their own intuition and ability to create effective herbal formulas. Volume 1 focuses on digestion and elimination; Volume 2 covers circulation and respiration; and Volume 3 focuses on endocrinology and the reproductive systems. Volume 5, which will cover immunology, orthopedics, and otolaryngology, will be published in spring 2021.

The Girls & Me: My Ten Years Teaching Poetry in a Residential Treatment Center
After the death of her child, a grief-stricken psychotherapist volunteers as a poetry teacher at a residential treatment facility for delinquent girls. Here, their mutual support is nourishing and enriching to them all, though not without large quantities of drama and recalcitrance. For fans of the acclaimed movies Stand and Deliver and Freedom Writers comes The Girls and Me. Selling Points: * Healing from grief can come in surprising ways, as it did for both the girls and me. It can come through the acts of writing and sharing our writing with each other, across generations and social classes. * There is not only a need but a curiosity and interest to know the secret lives of those behind bars or in detention centers; the great success of a program like Orange Is The New Black certainly emphasizes this point. Much of The Girls And Me details the daily experiences of girls in detention, which are compelling, appealing, poignant and often hilarious. * The importance to the world of knowing the potential this population and breaking stereotypes, especially at this time of political tumult, the rising tides of racism and prejudice. Much of the world too easily slaps labels ( juvenile delinquent ) on these kids with little understanding or concern about how they arrived in these circumstances, and therefore incarcerates them with little regard to their emotional needs and rehabilitation.

Embracing the Journey: A Christian Parents' Blueprint to Loving Your LGBTQ Child
A sympathetic, compassionate, and inspiring guide for parents--from the founders of one of the first Christian ministries for parents of LGBTQ children. Greg and Lynn McDonald had never interacted with members of the LGBTQ community until they discovered that their son was gay. Without resources or support, they had no idea how to come to terms with this discovery. At first they tried to fix him, to no avail. But even in the earliest days of their journey, the McDonalds clung to two absolutes: they would love God, and they would love their son. An essential resource for Christian parents of LGBTQ kids, (Matthew Vines, Executive Director of The Reformation Project) this book follows the McDonald family's journey over the next twenty years, from a place of grief to a place of gratitude and acceptance that led the McDonalds to start one of the first Christian ministries for parents of LGBTQ children. Based on their experience from counseling and coaching hundreds of struggling Christian parents, they offer tools for understanding your own emotional patterns and spiritual challenges. They also help you experience a deeper relationship with God while handling difficult or unexpected situations that are out of your control. You will discover tested principles, patterns, and spiritual lessons that can change the way we all see our families, and help Christians at large think through Christ-like ways to respond to the LGBTQ community. Written in an unvarnished, honest, reassuring, and relatable voice, this is a practical guide for parents and a roadmap to learning to love God, the people He created, and the church, even when they seem to be at odds.

The Last Goldfish: A Memoir of Friendship
In this post-boomer, pre-millennial, coming-of-age female memoir, two young women broach the promise of adulthood and find themselves navigating not only the weightiness and complications of being female, but also a devastating illness. The Last Goldfish is an intimate portrait of a friendship between two women growing up in the Greater Toronto Area in the 1980s and early 90s, against the backdrop of dramatic world events, such as the fall of the Berlin Wall and the first Gulf War. This story gives voice to the friend who's there for hospital visits, treatment side-effects, late-night phone calls about fears and what-ifs-not the adventure either had bet on. It traces the impacts of a terminal cancer diagnosis on a young person-what it means to face the possibility of death at the very age when one's identity is emerging.

The Opposite of Certainty: Fear, Faith, and Life in Between
What happens when we can no longer pretend that the ground underfoot is bedrock and the sky above predictable? All Janine Urbaniak Reid ever wanted was for everyone she loved to be okay so she might relax and maybe be happy. Her life strategy was simple: do everything right. This included trying to be the perfect mother to her three kids so they would never experience the kind of pain she pretended not to feel growing up. What she didn't expect was the chaos of an out-of-control life that begins when her young son's hand begins to shake. The Opposite of Certainty is the story of Janine's reluctant journey beyond easy answers and platitudes. She searches for a source of strength bigger than her circumstances, only to have her circumstances become even thornier with her own crisis. Drawn deeply and against her will into herself, and into the eternal questions we all ask, she discovers hidden reserves of strength, humor, and a no-matter-what faith that looks nothing like she thought it would. Beautifully written and deeply hopeful, Janine shows us how can we come through impossible times, transformed and yet more ourselves than we'd ever allowed ourselves to be.

Alone: A Love Story
The inspiration behind the smash-hit podcast Alone: A Love Story. The church wedding, the new house, a beautiful baby ... Michelle was sold a dream and bought into it. But one day, nine years in, she wakes up in an empty bed, and The Husband isn't there. Then, he drops The Bomb - he was having an affair with a woman at work. Adrift and on the edge of forty - fuelled by grief, booze, and one-night stands - Michelle battles the monster she calls Loneliness, juggling being a part-time parent and part-time partier. Though dangerously close to rock bottom, Michelle takes a chance on love again with a dashing but complicated man - The Man with the White Shirt. Michelle, an expert in emotional forensics, dives into the wreckage with candour and humour, uncovering a story about falling in and out of love, divorce, single parenthood, and the messy world of dating. What she finds, beneath it all, is life and the courage to face it alone.

Growing Old: Notes on Aging with Something like Grace
From the revered author of the bestselling The Hidden Life of Dogs, a witty, engaging, life-affirming account of the joy, strength, and wisdom that comes with age. Elizabeth Marshall Thomas has spent a lifetime observing the natural world, chronicling the customs of pre-contact hunter-gatherers and the secret lives of deer and dogs. In this book, the capstone of her long career, Thomas, now eighty-eight, turns her keen eye to her own life. The result is an account of growing old that is at once funny and charming and intimate and profound, both a memoir and a life-affirming map all of us may follow to embrace our later years with grace and dignity. A charmingly intimate account and a broad look at the social and historical traditions related to aging, Growing Old explores a wide range of issues connected with growing older, from stereotypes of the elderly as burdensome to the methods of burial humans have used throughout history to how to deal with a concerned neighbor who assumes you're buying cat food to eat for dinner. Written with the wit of Nora Ephron's I Feel Bad About My Neck and the lyrical beauty and serene wisdom of When Breath Becomes Air, Growing Old is an expansive and deeply personal paean to the beauty and the brevity of life that offers understanding for everyone, regardless of age.

The Consequences of Love
She may have been living in glamorous Chelsea, but when Gavanndra Hodge was seven years old her world was a precarious place. Her father was a drug dealer, her mother an alcoholic, and it was up to Gavanndra to ensure that the cigarettes smouldering between the fingers of the aristocratic junkies passed out in her sitting room were extinguished so that she and her little sister Candy could sleep safely in their beds. But when Candy dies suddenly on holiday aged nine, Gavanndra's family, already so fragile and damaged, implodes, and a teenage Gavanndra is left to rebuild her universe, piece by piece. And she does. The life she cultivates is a long way away from the chaos of her past. She becomes a mother, and works hard to give her own children the sort of secure and ordered childhood that she never had. But there is somebody missing in the happy ending she has created for herself. Candy. Apart from Candy's awful final moments, Gavanndra has no memories of her sister. So, she embarks on a tumultuous journey to write her way back to the little girl whose death tore her family apart. The Consequences of Love is a story of loss and recovery, trauma and memory. It is a joyous and compelling account of the strength of the love between sisters and how nothing is ever truly lost if we are brave enough to return to where we began.
