'Honest, witty and poignant observations on life that are both heart breaking and heartwarming' Amy Huberman As a child, being in new places made Stefanie Preissner ill, which is why her family holidayed in the same apartment on the same island off the Spanish coast for nine years in a row. And why, at Christmas, she wrote lengthy letters to Santa (note: letters, plural) begging him not to bring any surprises. Change was the enemy. But, as it turns out, one Stefanie hasn't been able to avoid. And, in spite of herself, one she has sometimes invited into her life. Here, in her first book, Stefanie looks at the ways in which her life has changed. From birthdays, friendships and how she celebrates the festive season, to social media (no FOMO here), the importance of asking WWNSD? (What Would Nicole Scherzinger Do?) when faced with big decisions, and her career as a writer, Why Can't Everything Just Stay the Same? is the hilarious and honest account of one woman's journey to and through adulthood, coping (sort of) with the terror, inevitability and beauty of change. 'It's Stefanie's life, but her struggles are universal. Insecurity? Check. Anger? Check. Weight issues? Big fat check. Stefanie shines a light on human frailty and human strength, proving they are not opposites, but often walk hand-in-hand ... an inspiring, thoroughly enjoyable book.' Nell Scovell, creator of Sabrina the Teenage Witch and author of Just the Funny Parts

Even though couples say "I do" with every intention of staying married, many don't make it. But what if more couples worked harder at making their marriages healthier, or if more marriages pursued God's purposes more intentionally? What if you devoted thirty days to strengthening your marriage? Authors Michael and Carrie O'Neal and Brian and Mary Manning wrote Just (Stay) Married to help couples set aside one month to grow closer to God and to each other. Throughout this guide, the authors challenge couples to take God's Word seriously, pointing to key Bible verses that promote Christ-like living and long-lasting marriages. Each week of the six-week devotional contains five daily readings. Couples will focus on the goals of marriage and what it means to pursue the biblical purposes of marriage. Although nothing will guarantee a successful and long-lasting marriage, the biblical sources found in Just (Stay) Married can increase its likelihood and promote the happiness of any couple.

Advaita and nondual teachings are about finding the Truth. This Truth is not a dogma that you study; it is the Truth about life †the Truth about who you really are. This Truth is discovered, not learned. It is discovered through sincerely inquiring, Who am I? What you discover is that who you are has nothing to do with self-images or roles and everything to do with what you experience when you ask this question. What you discover is that who you think of yourself as is just that †a thought! And beyond that thought is a great Mystery †an experience of nothingness, which is your true nature.Nothing Personal leads you to the experience of your true nature and helps you explore its depth. Through exposition, questions and dialogues, it brings you to a place of realization of the Truth: you are that spacious Awareness in which everything appears, including your thoughts and feelings. Your thoughts and feelings do not define you but merely appear within Consciousness along with everything else. This Consciousness is who you are.Nothing Personal offers a gentle and persistent guide to seeing the underlying truth of your ultimate nature. In this concisely edited collection of satsang talks and dialogues, you are invited to honor the limitless love that is your true nature and to enjoy the sweet richness that is revealed when you give this Truth your undivided attention.From the introduction:Unlike most books, this one is not meant to add to your knowledge or understanding. It is about the Truth that cannot be spoken or written. Although the Truth cannot be contained in this or any other book, each word written here is intended to point you toward that Truth. Many of the words and ideas may seem paradoxical or contradictory because what they point to is larger than our conceptual frameworks. Many questions are asked, which are not answered anywhere in the book. Find out what the experience is like to ask yourself these questions, even if they leave you emptier of knowledge and understanding. In this emptying, you just may discover what you are looking for.The Truth is revealed when we allow ourselves to not know, so I invite you to set aside all that you know for the time being and allow yourself to look with innocent eyes at what the words are attempting to unveil. Take the time to experience the unspoken truth in each section before moving on to the next. Resist the temptation to read these words with your mind, which is likely to rush right past the Truth. Allow the words to sink into your heart and reveal the truth of who you are.

At fourteen, Natalie Morgan was declared clinically dead, the victim of a brutal attack by her abusive mother’s boyfriend, a man she barely knew. Even so, against all odds, Natalie was revived on that fateful night; she took full advantage of her second chance with the help of an unlikely stranger named Bernie. What she couldn’t have prepared for was her extraordinary, newfound ability to hear the voices of the dead as a result of her encounter with death. Now a successful psychologist, Natalie helps at-risk kids, using her psychic ability by quietly feeding the information she receives from these deceased victims to the Sarasota Police. She has managed to put the horrific incident of her youth behind her—that is, until two local teenage girls are murdered within weeks of each other, and one of the victims contacts Natalie with disturbing information. Jake Riggs, the FBI agent assigned to the case, makes no effort to conceal his disdain for being forced to work with a psychic; however, hidden behind his dismissal of Natalie’s abilities and the unexplainable coincidences in the case is a powerful attraction he cannot deny. When the case takes a too-personal turn after the killer suddenly targets Natalie, she knows that if she is to survive a second time, Jake must learn to believe the unbelievable.
