Believe and it is True: A Story of Healing and Lif&hellip by Deborah Lloyd
5.0 out of 5 stars Truly, truly helpful, June 9 2014
A deeply personal story of healing and the power of the mind. I was engrossed from the very first page.
The author recounts her journey from the age of 3 being struck with polio through to her diagnosis as an adult with post-polio syndrome.
Told in short, manageable chapters with a nugget of wisdom at the end of each, Believe and It is True is an inspirational account of what is possible if one is willing to go deep enough.
Ms. Lloyd's bravery in sharing her story helped me personally and reminded me of the importance of being of service to others in whatever way feels right and natural for ourselves.
This book would be truly helpful for anyone on their own spiritual… Read more
The Ghosting of Gods by Cricket Baker
The Ghosting of Gods by Cricket Baker
"No more thinking. No past. No future. Just my Presence."
I love this kind of writing: choppy (in a good way), honest and of the moment. It's as if you're running alongside the main character, Jesse, as he tells you the story in between breaths.
Jesse is a young exorcist struggling with the death of his sister and looking for answers. Through the first part of The Ghosting of Gods I was a little confused, but the confusion ended up serving me. Ms. Baker sets up the reader for a haunting, surprising ride. And along for the ride are Jesse's friends...a motley crew that keep things interesting!
Stay with it. This is a novel that reaches beyond a simply ghost story searching for… Read more
Regaining Your Self: Breaking Free From the Eating&hellip
5.0 out of 5 stars So Helpful, June 19 2013
I would recommend this book not only to those of us in the grips of an eating disorder and looking for help, but also for the people affected by loved ones with an ED.
I was skeptical. Dr. Sacker seemed like a great guy and all, but had he ever *been* there?? No. So how could he help? Well, he's willing to help and he's also unwilling to let us lie to ourselves any longer. This helped more than I can say.
This was the right book at the right time...a time when I needed to be honest about what I was doing, how I was living my life.
I am forever grateful for Regaining Your Self. I learned I am not my eating disorder and that a life of freedom from this illness was always… Read more
