It really helped me to understand normal baby development, and at the same time, providing simple, yet kind and effective strategies to use at four months and beyond. I will continue to refer to this book as my boy gets older and we face different challenges with sleep and behavior.”

-Allison, Parent

“The Sleep Play Love Book presents a countless number of invaluable parenting tools that I use to connect with my children on a daily basis; deepening our bond. Sophie’s loving approach to parenting resonates with my heart more than any other, and I appreciate the knowledge I have gained so much I almost considered having another child just so I could put it into practice at the newborn and infant stages!”

-Erika, Parent

About the Author
John Charles Ryle (1816-1900) graduated from Eton and Oxford and then pursued a career in politics, but due to lack of funds, he entered the clergy of the Church of England. He was a contemporary of Spurgeon, Moody, Mueller, and Taylor and read the great theologians like Wesley, Bunyan, Knox, Calvin, and Luther. These all influenced Ryle’s understanding and theology. Ryle began his writing career with a tract following the Great Yarmouth suspension bridge tragedy, where more than a hundred people drowned. He gained a reputation for straightforward preaching and evangelism. He travelled, preached, and wrote more than 300 pamphlets, tracts, and books, including Expository Thoughts on the Gospels, Principles for Churchmen, and Christian Leaders of the Eighteenth Century. Ryle used the royalties from his writing to pay his father’s debts, but he also felt indebted to that ruin for changing the direction of his life. He was recommended by Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli to be Bishop of Liverpool where he ended his career in 1900.

Depending on the individual, the circumstance and their emotions, anger may cause a person to become enraged or even furious. People who become angry behave in different ways.

Adults and churches tend to provide entertainment to occupy the children, but children ought to have our undivided attention. Jesus said, let the little children come to me. They were worthy of His time and devotion, and they are worthy of ours.

Expect to be challenged and inspired as you read this classic from Charles H. Spurgeon. Learn how to enlarge your heart for all types of children, learn what lessons are best, and learn what results to expect. May this helpful little book be the catalyst for many new or improved shepherds of the Lord’s lambs.

His sermons were printed in newspapers, translated into many languages, and published in many books.

Gaslighting: The Ultimate Narcissistic Mind Control (Transcend Mediocrity Book 131)

by J.B. Snow

You try to commiserate with your friends and family, but they seem to shun you lately. Your friends don’t know what you are talking about when you complain about your unhealthy relationship. They think that your partner is a perfect angel. Your family is confused about your erratic behaviors. Everyone thinks that you have gone stark-raving mad. You try to get your wits about you, but your partner is always there to tell you that you are worthless, clingy, emotional, needy, and crazy.
Maybe his parents and his other family members are supportive of him. They don’t seem to like you. His charm has won over everyone else. You wonder if you are the one who is the problem. After all, why can’t everyone else see that your partner is causing the decline in your mental health? Why don’t they empathize with your emotional pain?
You don’t feel like yourself anymore. You feel like a shell of your former self. You were so much vibrant and live-loving before you met the narcissist in your life. You love him, but you recognize that he is tearing you down at the same time. You wonder why your relationship isn’t supportive, loving and filled with personal growth.
The problem is this: you can’t tell which one of you is crazy. At first, you were certain it was him. But lately, you wonder if your own sense of sanity is declining. You feel emotional, exhausted, depressed, frazzled, stressed and confused. You think that you might even suffer a nervous breakdown any second now. Not even the counselors believe the suffering that you are experiencing. Most people have no idea what you are going through.
If you are feeling this way, my friend, there is a simple explanation. You may be dating or married to a narcissist. Your self-absorbed partner may be gas-lighting and manipulating you. He may cycle between love-bombing and distancing himself from you. He seems to be a nice guy to your face sometimes, but then you find out that he is talking bad about you to others. He seems to triangulate you with other women or family members in order to make you jealous and boost his own ego.
Does he talk you in circles when you confront him about his whereabouts when he is running late? Does he tell you that you are being â??too clingy’, â??too emotional’, and â??too needy’ when you say that you want to spend time together? Does he get defensive when you want to move the relationship forward in any way? Does he balk at anything resembling maturity and commitment?
Does he isolate you from friends and family so that he has the opportunity to win everyone over to his side? Does he stop you from having any independence because he is afraid that you will leave him if you had some moral support? Is his self-esteem wavering to the point where he thinks that you might get smart if you talk to others? Does he fear you â??figuring out’ what he is up to, especially if other people validate it to you?

Hide and Play Dead: From Memoir to Real-time Healing (Freedom from Social Oppression Book 1)

by Michael King

“Hide and Play Dead” is not a book to be read.
This is a book to be experienced.

This book is an unfolding adventure story that you will not want to put down for a minute. You will be emotionally moved and sometimes shocked as you read the writer’s memoirs. You will enter his intimate life history starting nine generations before his birth and up through his current real-time adventure of self-healing while writing.

This book will engage you.
Whoever you are– whatever your age, gender, personal background, racial identity, sexual orientation, vocation or social class– you will strongly relate to some parts of this book.

This book will begin to heal you.
The book is structured to evoke the emotional states necessary to recover from oppression and teach by example the survival skills needed to stay safe from social predators.

“Hide and Play Dead” is a memoir and nonfiction novel that represents a quantum leap in writing technology, healing methodologies, and social engineering. The work lays a foundation for a paradigm shift in the biosocial sciences that will be developed over a planned series of books.

This autobiographical novel is interwoven with the real-time adventure story of my liberation from ancestral patterns based on slavery. The flow, from the beginning and up to the joyous conclusion of the book, appears as a seamless cinematographic stream with an unforgettable true storyline. It is a riveting exposé and psychological thriller filled with international intrigue and startling revelations uncovering inside secrets of the black aristocracy and Intelligentsia, renowned educational institutions, and the field of medicine.

This book dares to free readers from oppressive imprints using advanced neuropsychological principles applied to the process of reading. Real people, real pain, real discovery and real adventure into the unknown are the cornerstones of self-healing that I both experience and personify. Moving anecdotes, irony and sardonic humor, innuendoes and mysterious dangling phrases, metaphor and symbolism, poetic prose, mythological references, allegorical and mystical depictions, auditory, visual and onomatopoetic leitmotifs, and a stark self-revealing stance produce a level of excitement that is necessary to break traumatic patterns in the reader, as well as to create a literary masterpiece.

“Hide and Play Dead” is also a bold critique that challenges systems of social oppression, including racism, dysfunctional parenting, predatory relationships, educational elitism, homophobia, and physician corruption under the tyranny of “the business model”. It highlights the ultimate threat to democracy: global neo-slavery under the rule of a corporate elite, and galvanizes the populist resistance to this crisis that emerged in the past two presidential elections.


This is my story of being a mixed-race African-American growing up as the solo child desegregationist in a conservative mid-North Western city in the 1960’s, whose dysfunctional family represents the pinnacle of the black aristocracy. I escape the racial violence and domestic turmoil by going to the nation’s most elite private schools, where I excel academically but fail to fit in sociallyâ??replicating my parent’s own histories of child prodigy and abandoned half-Jewish orphan. I come out of the closet as an openly gay man while attending Harvard Medical School and become an iconoclastic alternative healer.

I narrate my series of ten toxic marriages to narcissists and other social predators, and my work as I witness the corruption and collapse of the field of medicine. I reach a crisis point and realize that I must write a truthful account of my history to fully recover from a lifetime of trauma. Dramatic real-time events occur as I write the book, highlighted by the rediscovery of my ancestral roots and the after-effects of slavery upon my life’s course and identity.

Defining Moments: A Suburban Father’s Journey into his Son’s Oxy Addiction

by Bradley V. DeHaven

“The cops had me all wired up and bent me down behind my driver’s side door. â??You get here in the crossfire,’ the narco cop said, with his hand on the back of my head. â??You stay here. No moving around. No heroics.’

Crossfire? Back in the day, when my brother was the biggest coke dealer in Sacramento, back when we had orgies in my hot tub store and snorted tables full of cocaine, I’d never seen crossfire. But now that my son is addicted to someone else’s prescription, Oxycodone, here I am setting myself up to be in the line of fire.”

The true story, Defining Moments: A Father’s Journey Into His Son’s Addiction, drives readers into an Oxy deal intended to save a young man’s life, walks them through the history of the father who would perpetrate it, climaxes with the disastrous immediate consequences, and ultimately, reveals the healing of an entire family.

This story has drama and action, but it also has some real education: The drugs our kids do are different than the drugs we did. Even drug-savvy parents are unprepared for what’s tempting today’s teens. In 2008, half a million people used Oxycodone for non-medical purposes for the first time. In 2009, one in ten high school seniors abused narcotic painkillers. Today, the numbers are even higher, as Oxy remains one of the only illicit drugs experiencing an increase in popularity and use.

Diamonds in the Rough Series: The Friendship and Spiritual Hustle

by Abstain-Crittenden Grinter

Diamonds in the Rough Series Part One: The Friendship and Spirituality Hustle
Diamonds in the Rough is a three part series that covers four main subjects, friendship, spirituality, romance, and chasing dreams. This series is titled “Diamonds in the Rough” because it is our story and who we are, four Black women who haven’t reached our full potential, but working hard towards balancing this thing we call life. However, this series is for anyone who are in seasoned friendships, exiting and entering romantic relationships, dealing with their spirituality, and chasing their passion. We define “Hustle” as working hard towards something. In the first book, we are going to show you OUR Friendship and Spirituality Hustle because all things take work, right!?

Friendship Hustle: Beautiful Transformation from a Stranger to a Friend
The “Friendship Hustle” teaches you two key things: about this person who once was a random stranger and yourself. Building a strong HEALTHY friendship, requires trust and honesty, fun and good times, motivation and encouragement, and learning how to find the balance. Now, let’s get to the real real. Every relationship worth fighting for has its highs and lows. What friendship is perfect? To keep it moving, sometimes it takes hard and honest conversation or realizing it’s time to let go. You have to make that choice. Friendships are not ALWAYS easy, but gaining a lifelong friend is worth it.

Spiritual Hustle: The Power of the Spirit

Sometimes our spiritual journey can determine how our lives play out. Oftentimes, we seek answers in all the wrong places, only to figure out, in time, that looking to sky is the best option to finding the answers you’re looking for.

Blame Game

by Mike Connell

Audio Transcripts for a set of 3 sermons, including Summary Notes & Audio

Passing the Blame (1 of 3) “It’s not my fault, you can’t blame me for that”. If we don’t relentlessly deal with the Blame Game, then we think we’re trying to move in faith, but we’re actually continuing old patterns of unbelief and irresponsibility. The Blame Game started in Genesis, when God talked to Adam & Eve about eating the fruit of the tree. When they started blaming, God stopped talking – they experienced the consequences of their decision. Will you stop blaming and start to take responsibility? Find creative options. Take action. Jesus took responsibility for the sins of the world, offering hope and a different future.

You Always Have a Choice (2 of 3) God empowered man with a free will, and the ability to overcome challenges in life. Man learned to be helpless, he developed limiting beliefs about himself. Israel learned to be slaves (helpless) in Egypt. The challenges they faced in the wilderness were designed to shift their slave mentality to explore what God had for them. We have the ability to handle every challenge in life if we choose to believe & trust God. We disqualify ourselves from our destiny, purpose & blessing if we blame & make excuses. Learn how you can break free from learned helplessness. Choose to change.

Dealing with Failure (3 of 3) The origin of the Blame Game is failure. Blame places the responsibility for a failure/mistake on people or circumstances. We all fail, we need to admit that. Take responsibility and acknowledge failure so that God can lift you up, and you can change. Look at some of the glorious mistakes & failures recorded in the Bible, then discover powerful keys for handling our failures and moving on.

Your Pregnancy Wellbeing at Work: Managing Work and Pregnancy Successfully

by Emma Thomson

Updated and revised in 2018, this book offers a step by step guide on how best to plan your pregnancy journey at work. It includes a week by week checklist with key dates and deadlines. Most women working full time spend on average, three quarters of their pregnancy at work. With pregnancy discrimination still common amongst employers, the result is that many women find the experience of working whilst pregnant stressful and demanding. It doesn’t have to be. This book covers topics such as planning for maternity, how to look after your wellbeing and keep stress levels low and how to communicate with your employer effectively. It’s full of practical advice and no nonsense self-help tips on how to get the best out of what should be a unique and very happy experience.

Questions with the author:
Q: Who is this book for?
A: Anyone who is working and planning a pregnancy in the future and all those who are working and already pregnant.
Q: Won’t my employer tell me all this? Or my midwife?
A: No! Your employer has certain obligations which include keeping you safe at work and providing you with relevant maternity pay and leave provisions. They will advise you on their company maternity policy and your statutory rights but that is likely all they’ll do.
Your midwife will see you a few times through your pregnancy to monitor the health of you and your baby and advise on motherhood. Although they will do their best to answer any questions you have, they are experts in maternity care, not employment.

New Vision 2050: A Platinum Society (Science for Sustainable Societies)

by Hiroshi Komiyama

This book presents the ‘New Vision 2050,’ which adds the concept of the “platinum society” to the “Vision 2050”.
The 20th century was a century in which energy led the development of material civilization, resulting in deletion of resources, global warming and climate change. What form should sustainable material and energy take to protect the Earth? The ‘Vision 2050’ was established 20 years ago as a model that we should pursue for the next half century. Fortunately, the world is on course for the Vision 2050.The 21st century will be a century in which we seek qualitative richness, with the Vision 2050 as the material basis. That is, a “platinum society” that has resource self-sufficiency and resource symbiosis, and where people remain active throughout their lives and have a wide range of choices and opportunities for free participation. Since the author presented the concept of ‘Vision 2050’ in 1999, the idea has been introduced in two books entitled Vision 2050: Roadmap for a Sustainable Earth (2008) and Beyond the Limits to Growth: New Ideas for Sustainability from Japan (2014). The latter includes a chapter that sheds light on the concept of a “platinum society”. In this publication, the author presents the ‘New Vision 2050’ in more detail.

Simple & Effective Science For Self Realization (Gujarati Edition)

by Dada Bhagwan

In moments of reflection, it is only natural to wonder what is the true purpose in life and to ask, behind the constant efforts made just in “living”, what is it that we are seeking?

In the book “Self Realization”, Gnani Purush (embodiment of Self knowledge) Dada Bhagwan reveals the science of Self realization, describing that attaining knowledge of Self is ultimate life purpose, and is the beginning of lasting, permanent happiness. Dadashri explains that all beings continuously seek happiness but can only be satisfied by spiritual happiness.

Becoming Self realized is a spiritual awakening which allows such happiness to begin to be experienced. Having gained Self knowledge, spiritual development and spiritual awareness begin – initiating a spiritual transformation which can result in ultimate liberation, or moksha.

Whether interested to discover ultimate life purpose, or on a spiritual quest to attain spiritual enlightenment, “Self Realization” is a unique resource.

While asking ourselves how to adjust in these circumstances, and how to handle conflict, we remain confused and perplexed.

In the book “Life Without Conflict”, Gnani Purush Dada Bhagwan offers ultimate conflict resolution skills in the form of spiritual conflict resolution strategies.

Avoid Clashes (Gujarati Edition)

by Dada Bhagwan

As much as we would prefer otherwise, life includes its measure of unpleasant and unfavorable circumstances. In dealing with difficult people, facing unhealthy relationships, in family relationships, or in the midst of marriage problems, clashes occur. We might even say that some of our relationships are the very definition of conflict! We ask ourselves, how can we possibly avoid conflict in these emotionally-charged situations?

In the book “Avoid Clashes”, Gnani Purush Dada Bhagwan offers ultimate conflict resolution skills in the form of spiritual conflict resolution strategies. His spiritual teaching on how to resolve conflict – or to avoid it altogether – is offered in the context of common and everyday relationship challenges.

Whether seeking relationship tips, marriage advice, or to learn how to deal with negative people and difficult people, this book will prove an invaluable resource.

Timmy the kitten’s bed stays dry (Smart Stories Book 3)

by Alan Johnstone

Timmy is very sad. He also wants to sleep over at Corry’s house but he still wets his bed!

This story helps children to solve the problem of bed wetting by assisting the child to subconsciously accept behavioural change as he or she listens to a story.

Children learn through stories and easily associate with the characters in stories. This natural tendency provides a parent a wonderful opportunity to guide his or her child’s behaviour and feelings and teach them understandings with which to improve their EQ.

In the ebook, notes are provided which teach parents, educators and play therapists the valuable skills of story telling. The notes are interspersed in the story and explain why certain words and ideas are offered in the story.

Empowering Adolescent Girls in Developing Countries: Gender Justice and Norm Change

by Nicola Jones

The Open Access version of this book, available at, has been made available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-No Derivatives 4.0 license

Adolescence is a pivotal time in a girl’s life. The development of educational, physical, psychosocial, familial, political and economic capabilities enable girls to reach their full potential and contribute to the wellbeing of their families and society. However, progress is still significantly constrained by discriminatory gender norms and the related attitudes and practices which restrict girls’ horizons, restrain their ambition and, if unfettered, allow exploitation and abuse.

Empowering Adolescent Girls in Developing Countries explores the detrimental impact of discriminatory gender norms on adolescent girls’ lives across very different contexts. Grounded in four years of in-depth research in Ethiopia, Nepal, Uganda and Viet Nam, the book adopts a holistic approach, recognising the inter-related nature of capabilities and the importance of local context. By exploring the theory of gendered norm change, contextualising and examining socialisation processes, the book identifies the patriarchal vested interests in power, authority and moral privilege, which combine in attempts to restrict and control girls’ lives.

Throughout the book, Empowering Adolescent Girls in Developing Countries demonstrates how efforts to develop more egalitarian gender norms can enable disadvantaged adolescent girls to change the course of their lives and contribute to societal change. Accessible and informative, the book is perfect for policy makers, think tanks, NGOs, activists, academics and students of gender and development studies.ã??

Generation Gap (Full Version) (Gujarati Edition)

by Dada Bhagwan

The relationship between parents and kids is a fundamental link of one’s existence. Even our great gods had parents whom they respected and revered.

In today’s time this relationship is getting complex. Parents have a long list of complaints against their children such as that kids don’t obey them, wake up late, don’t study, pick up wrong habits, fight with others, etc. Children fail to meet their parents’ expectations. Similarly, kids feel that their parents don’t want to understand them, are overly strict and so on.
In this book, these close relationships within the family are the basis of discourse (satsang) with Param Pujya Dadashri, the Gnani Purush (the enlightened one).The existing problems are discussed from the worldly view as well as from the spiritual view. Special attention is given to the growing rift between the new and the old generation.

Lullabies, Liquor and Late Nights

by Jennifer Gresko

Since the dawn of time, women have been called upon to enter into the wonderful world of motherhood. Heavily clad with tall tales of their own magical journey, some mothers can paint a pretty picture of a tropical parenthood paradise. This is not one of those stories. This is the true story of an honest to goodness, real life, surviving first time mother. Me. Come along with me for a roller coaster ride of swollen ankles, sleepless nights, dirty diapers and fear like you have never experienced. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Retirement Home? Ageing Migrant Workers in France and the Question of Return (IMISCOE Research Series)

by Alistair Hunter

This open access book offers new insights into the ageing-migration nexus and the nature of home. Documenting the hidden world of France’s migrant worker hostels, it explores why older North and West African men continue to live past retirement age in this sub-standard housing. Conventional wisdom holds that at retirement labour migrants ought to instead return to their families in home countries, where their French pensions would have far greater purchasing power.

This paradox is the point of departure for a book which transports readers from the banlieues of Paris to the banks of the Senegal River and  the villages of the Anti-Atlas. In intimate ethnographic detail, the author brings to life the experiences of these older labour migrants by sharing in the life of the hostels as a resident, by observing at close quarters the men’s family life on the other side of the Mediterranean as a guest in their homes, and even by accompanying them in their travels by bus, sea, and air. 

The monograph evaluates several theories of migration against rich qualitative data gathered from multiple methods: biographical narrative and semi-structured interviews, participant observation, and archival research. In the process, it offers a thoughtful contribution to broader debates on what it means for migrants to belong and achieve inclusion in society.  

This book has been awarded an â??honourable mention‘ in the Khayrallah Prize in Migration Studies, courtesy of the Moise A. Khayrallah Center for Lebanese Diaspora Studies at North Carolina State University. For more information please see:

Modelando com Amor: Modelando filhos com inteligência emocional (Portuguese Edition)

by Letícia Giassetti

Modelando com Amor mostra aos pais que devemos servir de exemplo, modelar nossos filhos dentro do Amor, agir com Inteligência Emocional e ensiná-los a lidar melhor com seus sentimentos para que na fase adulta sejam pessoas equilibradas e bem sucedidas. Conseguimos atingir nossos objetivos mais rapidamente quando agimos com cordialidade e respeito ao próximo. Mas como ser sábio se não é este o exemplo que tivemos desde a infância? Portanto, precisamos estar atentos aos nossos comportamentos, atos e hábitos desde a gestação, que é transmissora, ou seja, o bebê absorve não só a alimentação da mãe, mas também os sentimentos. Autocontrole é a palavra de ordem.
Todas nossas atitudes devem ser milimetricamente estudadas, pois crianças são puras, nascem livres de julgamentos e pré-conceitos. Suas personalidades são formadas até os 7 anos de idade e, portanto, são como esponjas. Vão aprender tudo que verem e ouvirem dentro do lar e dentro das instituições de Ensino. Que sejamos nós, pais, inteligentes para filtrar aquilo que desejamos que sejam as verdades e crenças dos nossos filhos. Que eles cresçam regados de muito amor, paz, equilíbrio e que em suas vidas, reine somente crenças fortalecedoras, que os levem adiante e que o destino deles seja o Sucesso. Não é isso que um pai deseja ao filho?
O livro nos leva à reflexão profunda sobre como podemos ser melhores, pois em cada gesto e atitude podemos criar significados ao inconsciente das crianças que, na maioria das vezes, gera danos irreversíveis ao adulto futuro. Que sejamos mais ponderados e ao menos conscientes dos nossos atos e falhas. Ter errado não significa persistir no erro. Melhor corrigir a rota de conduta do que decretar a sentença, desistir, no meio do caminho, de ser alguém melhor. E como corrigir? Com Amor.
Modelando com Amor é indicado para pais, futuros pais, educadores e apaixonados por crianças. Ã? um convite a colaborarmos para um mundo melhor por meio da Educação e Respeito às crianças. Ã? um convite a zelarmos pelo “Mistério Infância”, que é tão puro e mágico, um convite a conduzirmos os caminhos dos pequenos para que sejam adultos brilhantes!

Sentimientos Entre Tinta & Papel (Spanish Edition)

by Breiner Dialf

Las palabras dentro de estas páginas narran la vida solitaria de un joven soñador y cómo su poético mundo explota al encontrar su otra mitad.
Todos tuvimos un primer amor el cual nos robó el alma. Leer esta historia te traerá a la memoria tus años maravillosos, instantes que lograron robarte una sonrisa y un beso que perdura en tus labios hasta el día de hoy.
« Los paraguas se detuvieron en medio de lápidas adornadas con crucifijos, fechas y nombres, algunas tenían más de cien años de existencia, otras sólo meses y quienes descansaban en ellas habían llegado a vivir un siglo. Otros muy desafortunados sólo habían vivido un par de años. Por las fechas y las notas dejadas en algunas lapidas, se podía afirmar que quienes descansaban en ellas no nacieron�tic�tac�tic�tac� Las agujas del reloj giraron y giraron. Las cosas cambiaron, algunas se olvidaron, pero hay algo en mí que ni el paso del tiempo logrará cambiar o borrar. Algo que se ha convertido en parte de mí. Un demonio que me acecha a donde quiera que voy. A veces lo veo sonriendo bajo la lluvia, mirándome desde las estrellas e inclusive sentado a mi lado. El pasado. Ese demonio que no me deja mirar al futuro, ni vivir mi presente. A pesar que el cielo esté zarco. �l lo tiñe de grisáceas matices. Desde que ella abandonó mi vida nunca más he sido el mismo. Aún después de tanto tiempo sigo teniendo sueños con ella.
Fácilmente podría decir que la olvidé, pero sé que miento. Pensé que el tiempo se convertiría en mi aliado en medio de esta guerra contra la melancolía, pero no fue así. Desde que ella se marchó he sido el prisionero de la añoranza.»

Esta historia es una pequeña obra que reconstruye memorias de toda una vida.
El lugar en que es narrada es reconstruido con el propósito de captar la atención del lector, pero así mismo se dejan intactos los rasgos históricos del lugar.
En el transcurso de la historia se pueden apreciar temas de interés social que sobresaltan en la cultura adolescente de estos días.
Esta historia capta de una forma tierna los rasgos del primer amor. Todos tuvimos alguna vez un primer corazón que logró conquistar el nuestro. Muchos se sentirán identificados con esta historia.
La historia es basada en hechos reales.

El autor de la historia atravesó por muchas situaciones para lograr escribir esta obra: a finales del año 2014 inició a darle vida a la que sería su primera obra literaria publicada. Esta tomó tantos rumbos antes de su publicación, pero sólo hasta 2018 logró ser publicada.

La historia detrás de la obra «Sentimientos entre tinta & papel» es un tanto descabellada. A principios de 2018 el autor abandonó temporalmente sus estudios secundarios para dedicarle todo el tiempo que fuese posible a su obra literaria. Seis meses después de haber abandonado temporalmente sus estudios y encerrarse en una habitación en la que pasó de seis a doce horas diarias delante de una pantalla, finalmente le mostró al mundo la que sería su primera obra literaria publicada.
Sentimientos entre tinta & papel más que sólo una obra literaria, es el primer intento del joven escritor por alcanzar un sueño.

Me dijeron que en la vida hay que esperar para hacer lo que de verdad nos gusta. Aquellas palabras me hicieron entender que en la vida sólo basta soñar para sentirnos vivos. Y aquí estoy, viviendo un sueño.
-Breiner Dialf

Science Of Speech (Full Version) (Gujarati Edition)

by Dada Bhagwan

Those seeking to lead a spiritual life may naturally become inspired to live in peace and non violence. To learn spiritual practices to develop these values, one may turn to spiritual teachers, to different types of religion, or to different types of yoga.

But beginning to cultivate spiritual awareness is not always as simple as it seems – especially in family relationships, in unhealthy relationships, or while dealing with difficult people. Daily interactions such as these may feel like the very definition of conflict!

In the book “Science Of Speech”, Gnani Purush (embodiment of Self knowledge) Dada Bhagwan offers key understanding about non violent communication, along with conflict resolution skills and conflict management strategies. His spiritual teaching on how to resolve conflict – or to avoid it altogether – is offered in the context of common and everyday relationship challenges.

Among the myriad of spiritual books available today, “Science Of Speech” is a unique resource. Whether wondering how to become more spiritual, or simply how to deal with negative people and difficult people, this book will prove invaluable.

Beloved son, I am going to be your Father

by Reynaldo Pareja

There are many good “diaries” written by pregnant women for pregnant women, but a dairy written by an “expecting father” is not common. Most men hide their feelings under the archetype of “a strong, tough guy”. They forbid themselves from expressing them, even when the arrival of his first son brings forth a wave of new and profound emotions.
This small book has that merit. The author has allowed himself to write freely, without shame the feelings that invaded his heart and mind while his wife shared with him the impressions, emotions and experiences of the coming of their first son, a few years back. He did this by writing letters to his unborn son telling him how he, as a father-to-be, was experiencing his wife’s pregnancy. In the process it became his experience of an “expecting father”.
There are many men, too many, who have not had the chance to confess to themselves nor to others what they have felt while their wives were pregnant. Probably because they did not have a chance to reï¬?ect consciously about such new emotions, nor did they have a frame of reference of another man experiencing those feelings and expressing them. This is the reason why this book may be helpful. It offers to those “expecting father” a rich frame of reference, which they can use to clarify their feelings. They will find out how common these emotions can be when they read in this diary how another man had similar responses.

The Settlement (The Documentary Book 1)

by Sally Hull

Twenty-first century settlers are living in a nineteenth century town and outlying ranches in Montana for the purpose of filming a documentary. Each family has been thrown together, strangers to one another. Occupations and land have been secured by drawing them out of a hat. The parson is an atheist. The schoolteacher does not like children. The sheriff is a cocky eighteen-year-old. Each family is dependent on one another. With all of the coping of this new life, they begin questioning basic things and even begin wondering if the Bible has any answers. No one knows God. Their preacher does not even believe in God. But all is well, because God believes in them.
