In Centered Peace: How to Get it and Keep it, a vivid portrayal of life’s struggles is discussed like never before. This is spot-on for younger and older adults alike. Busyness, rampant fear, deep pain, and constant confusion are discussed. Nelson’s memory of growing up, running around barefooted, and feeling carefree is overshadowed by activities from her childhood neighborhood. She is not phased by this, however, because she eventually learns that her constant feeling of not fitting in, losing her brother at a young age, and dealing with despondency, were seeds for her determination, courage, resilience, and inner peace. Centered Peace: How to Get it and Keep it, includes fun exercises and simple strategies. The importance of righting relationships, recognizing your power, and using music to find and keep your peace is discussed. Nelson’s message is simple but powerful.

Societal norms have placed large burdens on how women perceive themselves, and how they want others to perceive them. This has led to some distressing statistics, with up to 10 percent of college-aged women in the United States suffering from an eating disorder. While individual women can focus on cultivating a healthy body image, it is important for young women to analyze how the media and others encourage unhealthy perceptions of what women's bodies are supposed to look like. A glossary, a For More Information section, and additional avenues of research are provided to guide readers to better understand the importance of a healthy female body image.

Cops, Cons, and Grace

A decade ago Brian Cahill became the victim of the greatest tragedy any parent can endure with the loss of his firstborn son, a veteran police officer in the aftermath of a painful divorce, to suicide. Far from the carefree retirement he had envisioned, the devastated father faced a journey back from the brink of utter despair. As the author of numerous opinion pieces and essays on religion, the lifelong Catholic was familiar with the concept that the cross is followed by the resurrection, and that from death comes new life. In the devastating years following his beloved son’s suicide, the abstract became very real. Cahill’s work volunteering with two different groups—cops and cons—saved him, allowing him to eventually experience a measure of grace. The unlikely combination of working with SFPD officers on suicide prevention and leading a spirituality group for San Quentin lifers brought him enough of a sense of peace and acceptance to truly want to continue living.
