Do you sometimes feel like an impostor in your own life? So many women today are living the “try hard” life. Trying to be perfect. Trying to maintain control. Trying to be what others want them to be. In her counseling practice Rita Schulte meets women in this place almost daily. In Impostor she combines medical research with moving stories from her own life and practice to help you uncover the lies, distortions, and other contributing factors that set up the imposter self. You will learn: · How five core needs drive our behavior · Why we pretend · Why we fear being known · How to give up the “try hard” life once and for all Most importantly you’ll discover what it takes to distinguish the impostor’s identity from the one that is intrinsically yours in Christ. Healing will come as you remove the mask and begin the journey of self-discovery.

Contrary to popular belief, your circumstances do not determine your mood. Rather, your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors flow from your interpretations of events. In our minds, we assign meaning to troubling events, and that meaning can trigger emotional stress. Scripture challenges us to think about what is true, right, pure, and excellent, and that's much more than a feel-good message. How we think actually affects how we respond to the world around us. Drawing on her experience as a clinical psychotherapist and a trauma survivor, Rita combines science and faith to show you how a strong connection to God, mindfulness techniques, and target exercises can help you identify and change toxic thinking patterns, rewire your brain, and achieve better health and well-being.

Too many people today are suffering from the catastrophic effects of loss. This year, three million people will die from diseases alone, leaving loved ones grieving, not to mention millions more affected by divorce, suicide, the rise of mental health disorders, war, terrorism, abuse, and economic failure. These statistics reflect the gravity of losses on today's culture. "Shattered" explores how unidentified or unresolved loss impacts every area of life, especially our relationship with God. The long-range impact of these losses is often obscured, buried beneath the conscious surface in an attempt to avoid pain. This book calls the reader to "notice" the losses of life, and fight the battle to reclaim and reinvest our hearts after loss through faith-based strategies.

Abortion continues to be a hot topic in politics, women’s rights, and medical practice. But for the eight to ten million American Christian women who have had one, abortion is a spiritual issue as well, raising questions of life and death, heaven and hell, grief and loss. Writing from her own experience, Kim Ketola sheds light on one of the darkest and most neglected personal issues of our time: the widespread need for healing and spiritual recovery after abortion. “After abortion brought the worst trouble into my life I had ever known,” writes Ketola, “I just couldn’t see my way free to believe in God’s love.” With a compassionate heart, Ketola offers ten true stories of healing promise from the Bible to help women answer the most common spiritual torments they face: Is abortion a sin? Does God hate me? Where can I turn in my shame and distress? How could I ever tell anyone the truth? And more. Inspired by Romans 6:4--“just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life"--this is a definitive resource to help women see themselves and God anew and--finally--to find spiritual healing.

The perfect gift! A specially priced, beautifully designed hardcover edition of The Joy of the Gospel with a foreword by Robert Barron and an afterword by James Martin, SJ. “The joy of the gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus… In this Exhortation I wish to encourage the Christian faithful to embark upon a new chapter of evangelization marked by this joy, while pointing out new paths for the Church’s journey in years to come.” – Pope Francis This special edition of Pope Francis's popular message of hope explores themes that are important for believers in the 21st century. Examining the many obstacles to faith and what can be done to overcome those hurdles, he emphasizes the importance of service to God and all his creation. Advocating for “the homeless, the addicted, refugees, indigenous peoples, the elderly who are increasingly isolated and abandoned,” the Holy Father shows us how to respond to poverty and current economic challenges that affect us locally and globally. Ultimately, Pope Francis demonstrates how to develop a more personal relationship with Jesus Christ, “to recognize the traces of God’s Spirit in events great and small.” Profound in its insight, yet warm and accessible in its tone, The Joy of the Gospel is a call to action to live a life motivated by divine love and, in turn, to experience heaven on earth. Includes a foreword by Robert Barron, author of Catholicism: A Journey to the Heart of the Faith and James Martin, SJ, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage From the Hardcover edition.
