Heaven talks to each one of us and gives us hope. In Hope Heals, author Jodi Netting discovers this through one of the most tumultuous periods of her life, which is told through her letters to her beloved husband. As a thirty-five-year-old mother of three, Jodi Netting faces the fight of her life. Her husband and soul mate, Kevin, has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, and his prognosis is not good. While Netting watches her husband battle this devastating illness, defying death daily, her hope flounders, but her faith never waivers. Ultimately she realizes that every experience provides us with an option to open our lives up to God. Faced with the possibility of losing the love of her life, Jodi turns to writing and to her faith. Through her prayers and her journal, Jodi recognizes the words of God and the angels in her life. And these messengers bring her hope. Hope is present in every person, but it can be elusive. Finding hope allows us to move beyond fear and despair in order to survive and eventually cultivate happiness. Hope ultimately brings a new perspective on life and to the people living it with you-sons, daughter, friends, and neighbors. In Hope Heals, Jodi Netting advises all of us to "Keep the faith, find the love in your life, and hold onto hope-for hope heals."

OVER 100,000 COPIES SOLD! When all seems lost, where can hope be found? Katherine and Jay married right after college and sought adventure far from home in Los Angeles, CA. As they pursued their dreams--she as a model and he as a lawyer--they planted their lives in the city and in their church community. Their son, James, came along unexpectedly in the fall of 2007, and just six months later, everything changed in a moment for this young family. On April 21, 2008, as James slept in the other room, Katherine collapsed, suffering a massive brain stem stroke without warning. Miraculously, Jay came home in time and called for help. Katherine was immediately rushed into micro-brain surgery, though her chance of survival was slim. As the sun rose the next morning, the surgeon proclaimed that Katherine had survived the removal of part of her brain, though her future recovery was completely uncertain. Yet in that moment, there was a spark of hope. Through 40 days on life support in the ICU and nearly two years in full-time brain rehab, that spark of hope was fanned into flame. Defying every prognosis with grit and grace, Katherine and Jay, side by side, struggled to regain a life for Katherine as she re-learned to talk and eat and walk. Returning home with a severely disabled body but a completely renewed purpose, they committed to celebrate this gift of a second chance by embracing life fully, even though that life looked very different than they could have ever imagined. In the midst of continuing hardships and struggles, both in body and mind, Katherine and Jay found what we all long to find . . . hope, hope that heals the most broken place, our souls. An excruciating yet beautiful road to recovery has led the Wolf family to their new normal, in which almost every moment of life is marked with the scars of that fateful April day in 2008. Now, eight years later, Katherine and Jay are stewarding their story of suffering, restoration, and Christ-centered hope in this broken world through their ministry Hope Heals.

In this book, entitled “The Missing Mind of Hippocrates,” I have addressed spiritual, philosophical, mystical and scientifi c fact. To demonstrate that we are spending our time in vain in seeking ways to extend our survival in leading research on invisible molecules and showing invalid scenario. The problem is elsewhere. I would not like to address these issues. If generally we can consider ourselves as the sole body, the association of knowledge about the beliefs would help doctors to prevent and cure many diseases without great efforts. Some characters as spiritual,administrative, political, socio-cultural and medical must be involved in this matter. Let us forget our religious, philosophical, cultural or ethnic affi liation. Learn the truth, compassion, meditate,transcend and we will influence our survival and our responsibility. Human beings have lost their viability to 1 and 12%? Here, you can see the average of our wellness through the connection of the seven dimensions of wellness (physical, emotional,intellectual, environmental, social, spiritual and transcendental) to transpersonal tips (awareness, pity, truth, motivation, wisdom, personal transformation). The world is working to reduce the mortality rate and increase survival and life expectancy,without taking this aspect into account. We are at risk of being all of us under the average age of maturity, from the ever life, eternity, 2000 years, 1000 years, 500 years, 250 years, 150years, and 100 years to 50 years of age as a life expectancy at this century. There was an original gene (GENE-U), mutated to molecular gene (master of life expectancy). Each century, molecular genes undergo multiple transformations in its mystical correlation to GENE-U. Life expectancy will fall to 30, 20, 10, 5 and 0 and human life of our race will disappear to leave life to new species of human-being, probably with a new GENE-U. At this point we can claim the end of the world, not gratuitously to prophesise through different phenomena. This is a paganism which put the world a complicated situation. Finally I conclude that the end of the world is when the expectancy life reaches the biological immature age, however humans become unable to reproduce and take care of others. A child can live only for determined times and pass on. What will remain? What about Homo erectus, Homo habilis, Homo sapiens? Why not HOMO XXXX? In this book, there is truth and controversies about transpersonal studies applied in clinical trials, these were conducted using statistical methodology. Meditation is a master our wellbeing.

Bringing Christ Back

Bringing Christ Back is a priceless and practical theology desperately needed by the modern church to drag it out of its doldrums—far too many of its “average” believers are finding no release from agonizing chains of sin. Its knife-edged message is that the powerful presence of Christ seems to be withdrawn from the church as crucial truths about our Lord are reduced to common platitudes. When Christ is brought back as the center of faith in fact, not just in theory, believers will experience his deliverance from sin through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Is it possible to embrace suffering as a privilege, rather than a punishment? Beloved authors Katherine and Jay Wolf offer readers the bold invitation to trust a known God with an unknown future, as well as practical insights into surviving anything by redefining how we think about everything. After miraculously surviving a near-fatal brainstem stroke at age 26, as told in their memoir, Hope Heals, life for Katherine and Jay Wolf changed forever - and so did the way they viewed God, the world, and themselves in it. There was no going back to normal after such a tragedy. Yet Katherine and Jay learned that suffering is not the end, but rather the beginning of a new story. In Suffer Strong, they invite us into this new story as they share universal lessons and helpful practices that will help us to: Recognize we are being equipped for an uncommon assignment, not cursed by our story. Transform our unmet expectations into brave anticipations. Disrupt the myth that joy can only be found in a pain-free life. Rewrite the narrative of hard circumstances by turning our definitions of suffering into declarations of strength. And, ultimately, thrive even in the lives we never imagined living.

Life is full of labels that limit, but God has a new name He longs for you to hear - a name that boldly declares freedom from your past and hope for your future. Join Esther Fleece Allen, bestselling author of No More Faking Fine, in this profound exploration of your God-given identity that no label can limit and no circumstance can shake. Too often, our identity gets tangled up with our circumstances, and suddenly, the truth of who we are is colored by our relationship status, our job title, the shame of our past, or what others say about us. People might pin toxic, untrue labels on your back. Life might knock you down. And you might even wrongly label yourself. But God never does. Our God-given identity is the truest thing about us, and God spends a lot of time in the Bible telling us who we are. It's time to take Him at His word. God's names for you are not post-it-note provisions; they are names to be studied, taken to heart, and believed, all in the journey of becoming your truest self just as He created you to be. Let Your New Name be your first step in this journey of a lifetime.
