The Shepherd's Song

Betsy Duffey, Laurie Myers
Authors:
Betsy Duffey, Laurie Myers

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures...Shortly before a tragic car accident, Kate McConnell writes down the powerful words of Psalm 23 on a piece of paper for her wayward son. Just before she loses consciousness, Kate wonders if she's done enough with her life and prays, 'Please, let my life count.'Unbeknown to Kate, her handwritten copy of Psalm 23 soon begins a remarkable journey around the world. From a lonely dry cleaning employee to a soldier wounded in Iraq, to a young Kurdish girl fleeing her country, to a Kenyan runner in the Rome marathon, this humble message forever changes the lives of twelve very different people. Eventually, Kate's paper makes it back to its starting place, and she discovers the unexpected ways that God changes lives, even through the smallest gestures.With beautiful prose and a 'pass it on' message reminiscent of THE SHACK, this story will touch your heart and remind you of the ways God works through us to reach beyond what we can imagine.

The Blazing World

Siri Hustvedt
Authors:
Siri Hustvedt

Artist Harriet Burden, consumed by fury at the lack of recognition she has received from the New York art establishment, embarks on an experiment: she hides her identity behind three male fronts who exhibit her work as their own. And yet, even after she has unmasked herself, there are those who refuse to believe she is the woman behind the men. Presented as a collection of texts compiled by a scholar years after Burden's death, the story unfolds through extracts from her notebooks, reviews and articles, as well as testimonies from her children, her lover, a dear friend, and others more distantly connected to her. Each account is different, however, and the mysteries multiply. One thing is clear: Burden's involvement with the last of her 'masks' turned into a dangerous psychological game that ended with the man's bizarre death.This is a polyphonic tour de force from the internationally acclaimed author of What I Loved, an intricately conceived, diabolical puzzle that explores the way prejudice, fame, money and desire influence our perceptions of one another. Emotionally intense, intellectually rigorous, ironic and playful, The Blazing World is as gripping as it is thought-provoking.

With dozens of exercises, assessment tools and examples, Making a Difference by Being Yourself delivers a complete toolkit to take personal insight and awareness to the next level-to live life consciously and to use your strengths and talents in ways that make a meaningful difference at work and in your relationships.

Gifts Differing

Isabel Briggs Myers, Peter B. Myers
Authors:
Isabel Briggs Myers, Peter B. Myers

Like a thumbprint, personality type provides an instant snapshot of a person's uniqueness. Drawing on concepts originated by Carl Jung, this book distinguishes four categories of personality styles and shows how these qualities determine the way you perceive the world and come to conclusions about what you've seen. It then explains what they mean for your success in school, at a job, in a career and in your personal relationships. For more than 60 years, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) tool has been the most widely used instrument in the world for determining personality type, and for more than 25 years, Gifts Differing has been the preeminent source for understanding it.
