A Loss is a Loss no matter how far along you are...
No miscarriage is small... but I felt mine was. My best friend lost her first child - full-term beautiful baby boy born with heart defects and other abnormalities... Cole died at 2 weeks. Another good friend of mine lost not one, but TWO children! Both full-term... both seemed to be umbilical related deaths but not one was anything that could be prevented or would point towards it happening ...
Turning the Mind Into an Ally
The hows and whys of meditation in easy to understand language
I have been meditating for about three or four years. I got started with contemplative prayer. Then, once I started studying Buddhism have been practicing based on Buddhist meditation techniques.

Lord, I Just Want to Be Happy
Harvest House Publishers
I rounded up. Just finished this Christian SH book, a genre about which I have become an unitentional expert. This one is better than most, I'd say. Practical ideas, well-written, nice blend of personal experience and anonymous patient stories. Each chapter has questions for discussion and it would seem like a solid choice as a book for a small support group to work through. The ideas are ...

One of the best books on Christian Growth
I benefitted greatly from this book. I used it in a men's Bible study and they all thought it was the most helpful book they have read in a long time.

Insight Into a Career in Pharmaceutical Sales
Elevated industry knowledge from a regional director and pharmaceutical executive
I specifically enjoyed this book over some others available of wish I purchased for it was written within the last six months and looks at the pharmaceutical industry from a viewpoint other than "a representative" (though that was my objective for the second time due to a "right sizing").

The Emotionally Destructive Relationship
This is, without a doubt, one of the VERY BEST, if not THE BEST "Helps" book I have ever read. Mrs. Vernick has captured the problem, the characteristics, and best of of, the real solution perfectly. It is as if she sees the very situation in which (one) is struggling with at that very moment. Her justification with Scripture is perfect and "right on target." I love her uses of Scripture to ...
