When Stacey Aaronson was born in 1969, her mother, Bree, was sixteen and barely out of braces. Hastily wed to Stacey's dad and divorced soon after, Bree raised Stacey with his and her parents' loving support. Growing up together in an often role-reversal scenario and mistaken for sisters, Bree would come to say, "I didn't raise Stacey. Stacey raised me." Raising, and Losing, My Remarkable Teenage Mother tells the extraordinary story of this mother-daughter duo reminiscent of Gilmore Girls. Anchoring each other to the world through unwavering love and acceptance, Bree and Stacey take on life with an uncanny gift for seeing magic in the most ordinary moments. Whether bouncing between the markedly different homes of her mom, dad, and grandparents, discovering her religious and sexual identities, or starting college in her mid-twenties, Stacey is buoyed by Bree's devotion as a mother, a sister, a daughter, and a friend. She helps Bree navigate her own path as she seeks the biological mother she never knew and a partner to grow old with. But Bree-despite her vibrant spirit and astounding near-reversal of an MS diagnosis-learns too young she has cancer, whose underlying emotional roots even a cutting-edge, non-toxic treatment can't cure. As Stacey steps into the role of caregiver, the two face the most poignant leg of their journey: nurturing their deep soul connection even as one soul transitions to another realm. Brimming with miracles, wonder, and joy even in its saddest moments, Raising, and Losing, My Remarkable Teenage Mother is a tender yet ebullient celebration of life, of love, of death's mysterious passage, and the mystical forces that bind us all. Includes a gallery of over sixty photos, book discussion questions, and an interview with the author.

Middletown Families was first published in 1985. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. Fifty years after publication of Robert and Helen Lloyd's classic studies, Middletown (1929) and Middletown in Transition (1937), the Middletown III Project picked up and continued their exploration of American values and institutions. By duplicating the original studies - in many cases by using the same questions - this team of social scientists attempted to gauge the changes that had taken place in Muncie, Indiana, since the 1920s. In Middletown Families, the first book to emerge from this project, Theodore Caplow and his colleagues reveal that many widely discussed changes in family life, such as the breakdown of traditional male/female roles, increased conflict between parents and children, and disintegration of extended family ties, are more perceived than actual. Their evidence suggests that the Middletown family seems to be stronger and more tolerant, with closer bonds and greater marital satisfaction than fifty years ago. Instead of breaking it apart, the pressures of modern society may have drawn the family closer together.

Mother of Amish Schoolhouse Shooter Gives Message of Hope and Healing Who would have believed all the beauty God would create over the nine years since that awful day. On October 2, 2006, a gunman entered an Amish one-room schoolhouse, shooting ten girls, killing five, then finally taking his own life. This is his mother's story. Not only did she lose her precious son through suicide, but she also lost her understanding of him as an honorable man. Her community and the world experienced trauma that no family or community should ever have to face. But this is, surprisingly, a story of hope and joy--of God revealing his grace in unexpected places. Today Terri lives in harmony with the Amish and has built lasting relationships that go beyond what anyone could have thought possible. From the grace that the Amish showed Terri's family from day one, to the visits and ongoing care Terri has given to the victims and their families, no one could have foreseen the love and community that have been forged from the fires of tragedy. Let Terri's story inspire and encourage you as you discover the wonder of forgiveness and the power of God to bring beauty from ashes.

CHALLENGES BUILD CHARACTER “The Lord upholds all those who are FALLING and RAISES UP all those who are bowed down.” (Psalm 145:14 NIV) FALLINGHave you ever felt like you were falling?Have you ever felt like no one was listening and no one cared?Have you ever felt that living was so unbearable that the only way to stop the pain was to end your life?Maybe you are feeling this right now. Years before I accepted Jesus as my Savior, I experienced the most painful, difficult, and darkest time of my life. Things were so unbearable that it took every ounce of energy I had just to survive. I became severely depressed, fell, and hit rock bottom, attempted to commit suicide, and ended up strapped in the Psychiatric Unit. RAISES UP God can raise us up without us even realizing it is happening. God started to raise me up while I was still a patient at the hospital ironically leading a “life changing session”. Shortly after returning home, the Holy Spirit led me to a Christian church which ignited a passion in me to have a relationship with God, study His word and share it with others. God had a plan for me, and He has a plan for you too. Not only did God raise me up but he put it in my heart to write this book and share what I learned. This book is about my testimony as well as others who have fallen through affairs, addiction, divorce, financial difficulties, loss of loved ones, orphanage, and suicide. And beautiful stories of being raised up through family reunions, marriage resolutions, recovered addictions and discovered newfound strengths by having a relationship with God. We want to share with you our stories of God’s goodness and faithfulness. God touched your heart today. There is a story written here that He wants you to read and I pray that you give it a try. God is lovingly waiting to hear back from you.
