Aging with Grace: What the Nun Study Teaches Us about Leading Longer, Healthier, and More Meaningful Lives

Aging with Grace: What the Nun Study Teaches Us about Leading Longer, Healthier, and More Meaningful Lives
Snowdon, David
$17.00
In 1986 Dr. David Snowdon, one of the world's leading experts on Alzheimer's disease, embarked on a revolutionary scientific study that would forever change the way we view aging--and ultimately living. Dubbed the "Nun Study" because it involves a unique population of 678 Catholic sisters, this remarkable long-term research project has made headlines worldwide with its provocative discoveries.
Yet Aging with Grace is more than a groundbreaking health and science book. It is the inspiring human story of these remarkable women--ranging in age from 74 to 106--whose dedication to serving others may help all of us live longer and healthier lives.

Totally accessible, with fascinating portraits of the nuns and the scientists who study them, Aging with Grace also offers a wealth of practical findings:

- Why building linguistic ability in childhood may protect against Alzheimer's
- Which ordinary foods promote longevity and healthy brain function
- Why preventing strokes and depression is key to avoiding Alzheimer's
- What role heredity plays, and why it's never too late to start an exercise program
- How attitude, faith, and community can add years to our lives

A prescription for hope, Aging with Grace shows that old age doesn't have to mean an inevitable slide into illness and disability; rather it can be a time of promise and productivity, intellectual and spiritual vigor--a time of true grace.

    At Home in This Life: Finding Peace at the Crossroads of Unraveled Dreams and Beautiful Surprises

    Greer, Jerusalem Jackson
    $18.99
    In another 'Benedict Option' the author shares about her hunger for a deeper spiritual life, how Benedictine spirituality has shaped her practice, and the ways she has learned to embody Christian spirituality in everyday life. --James Matichuk

    Foreword by Shauna Niequist

    In the midst of beauty and mess, chaos and monotony, celebrations and mourning, Jerusalem Greer tells her story of finding redemption in what is rather than what could be, by practicing the presence of God through rediscovering ancient contemplative teachings and practices (solitude, study, work, prayer, and service) and pairing them with domestic arts (baking, gardening, sewing). Jerusalem writes with a raw honesty that reassures readers they are not alone in feeling not good enough, not wise enough, not Christian enough to figure out God's plans. Jerusalem is active on Facebook and Pinterest and regularly posts on her blog 'Slow Living in a Fast World' where she records what she calls her "beautymess" attempts at living a sacramental life.

    Be Brave in the Scared: How I Learned to Trust God During the Most Difficult Days of My Life

    Be Brave in the Scared: How I Learned to Trust God During the Most Difficult Days of My Life
    Lenaburg, Mary E
    $15.95

    Winner of a 2020 Excellence in Publishing Award from the Association of Catholic Publishers (third place, spirituality).


    As a parent, do you struggle with trusting God's will for your life and for those you love? Are you tired and afraid?

    In Be Brave in the Scared, Catholic writer Mary Lenaburg shares how the overwhelming demands of caring for her severely disabled daughter ultimately taught her--and can teach you--that trusting in God and accepting his will can lead to profound joy, no matter what challenges you face.

    Be Brave in the Scared is an uplifting account of human frailty (and stubbornness) surrendered to faith. Lenaburg tells the heart-rending story of how caring for her severely disabled daughter affected her self-image, marriage, family life, and faith.

    Although she initially struggled to accept God's will and her own limitations, Lenaburg ultimately learned how to trust God. She found in that trust inexplicable joy, even during the most difficult days of her life. She writes boldly and authentically about challenges we all encounter, such as trials with control, blame, exhaustion, fear, and acceptance.

    Each chapter concludes with an invitation to write and a place for readers to express their thoughts and feelings. Lenaburg's extraordinary story affirms that God's redeeming love never fails and that he is there to help us through all of the challenges we encounter.

    Be Comforted: Feeling Secure in the Arms of God: OT Commentary Isaiah

    Be Comforted: Feeling Secure in the Arms of God: OT Commentary Isaiah
    Wiersbe, Warren W
    $12.99

    For anyone who thinks that comfort is equivalent to pity and that it is only priceless to those who need an emotional crutch, best-selling author Warren Wiersbe applies the words of the prophet Isaiah to prove that God's comfort is no such thing. The word comfort actually translates to repent in Hebrew; our English translation, however, adds another dimension to the word since it originated from two Latin words meaning with strength.

    With definitions and insights like this, the pastor of pastors and phenomenal author Warren Wiersbe continues to enliven the Scriptures as he weaves the words of Isaiah with historical explanations and thought-provoking questions for every chapter, creating a study guide that can be used in personal Bible study or with a group. With over 4 million copies of his Be series alone in circulation, he is a man who has given his life to a deep examination of the Word of God, to communicating it in such a way that the masses see its relevance for today.

    Be Transformed: The Healing Power of the Sacraments

    Be Transformed: The Healing Power of the Sacraments
    Schuchts, Bob
    $16.95

    Winner of a 2018 Catholic Press Association Award: Sacraments. (First Place).


    How can Christians grow spiritually in the midst of our sinfulness? How can we transform our lives in a way that allows us to share in the resurrection of Jesus?

    God has already given us the perfect solution--the sacraments.

    Whether it is the wound of past hurts, the strain in our relationships, or the stress of daily life, we all need to be comforted and made whole by Christ. In this follow-up to his bestselling Be Healed, Bob Schuchts explains how the sacraments can fuel your emotional and spiritual healing and bring you closer to God.

    Based on more than thirty-five years of experience as a therapist and decades spent in parish ministry, Schuchts demonstrates how each of the seven sacraments can be a life-changing encounter with Christ, communicated through the power of the Holy Spirit. He pairs each healing sacrament with one of the seven deadly wounds that emanated from original sin in the Garden of Eden. We perpetuate and deepen those wounds each time we sin, but the sacraments are God's remedy for sin. They give us a way to restore us to wholeness in Christ.

    In Be Transformed, You'll discover how each sacrament can help you heal from wounds that can impede your relationships and sense of self-worth. With Schuchts's help, you'll learn how:

  • Baptism makes us beloved children of God, healing our wounds of rejection
  • Holy Communion heals our wounds of abandonment by inviting us to share in Jesus' abiding presence
  • Confirmation overcomes our powerlessness through the power of the Holy Spirit
  • Holy Orders heals wounds of confusion and disorder by re-establishing God's authority in our lives
  • In marriage, God's faithful love heals wounds of fear and mistrust
  • Reconciliation restores purity and releases us from shame
  • Anointing of the Sick provides enduring hope to overcome our hopelessness
  • Be Transformed offers all of the tools you need for a fresh understanding of the sacraments, including reflection questions, scripture meditations, prayers, and inspiring stories. You'll come away hungry for the sacraments in a way you never knew possible.

    Calm in Chaos: Catholic Wisdom for Anxious Times

    Calm in Chaos: Catholic Wisdom for Anxious Times
    Rutler, George William
    $17.95

    In these brilliant essays the renowned writer and churchman Fr. George Rutler addresses our current causes of anxiety and our never-changing, ever-new reasons for hope. His writings on the issues of our day are neither pessimistic nor optimistic, because they are infused with the confidence that God grants us his peace and no earthly circumstance can take it away.

    With insight and wit, with breadth and depth, Fr. Rutler comments on the confusion in the Church and the chaos in Western societies, which are not without precedent but are on a uniquely global scale. An underlying theme is his dismay at the lack of historical perspective. He says that the gremlin that haunts our times is ignorance and a failure to recall and to understand the trials of the past.

    Catholic Woman's Guide to Happiness
    Sweet, Rose
    $19.95
    Calling all Catholic women! Does your religious reading and pious practice not always "translate" into how you interact with and love each other? Are you not always aware or convinced of God's love for you? Does happiness seem to elude you in certain circumstances of your life? Fear not! Noted author Rose Sweet is here to help in a new series of books with practical steps and tips to help the reader first remember God's tender love for her and then to love neighbor . . . so that the ups and downs of life and relationships will not diminish her joy.

    The Catholic Woman's Guide series integrates classic Catholic theology (Theology of the Body and teachings on contemplative prayer) with Sweet's unique brand of storytelling and humor and will help you to find and hold on to authentic happiness in every area of your life.

    In this first volume, The Catholic Women's Guide to Happiness, Sweet takes you into the "Interior Life" to explore the attitudes, fears, and deepest desires that may keep you from greater joy. Topics include:

  • Identifying what gives you the most pleasure, peace, contentment, and satisfaction.
  • Recognizing when you may be hanging on too tightly to something you own, a power you possess, or even a person you love.
  • Rooting out the specific fears that rob you of happiness.
  • Hearing what the saints and mystics have said about happiness.
  • Seeing hidden windows and doors that open to the deepest joys.
  • Reordering your natural desires rather than repressing or rejecting them.
  • Sweet points to the goodness and love of God as the true Source of all happiness and how to reconcile your longings with his special love for you.

    The Adventure awaits! Accompany Rose on this journey to true happiness in Christ!

This book will help readers, doodlers, and colorers hear what God might be saying to them personally in a specific passage and then meditate further on it.

    Discerning the Will of God

    Discerning the Will of God
    Gallagher
    $19.95
    Every Chrstian has a Mission. What's Yours?
    Is it time to change jobs? Should I marry?
    Am I called to religious life?

    Sooner or later, every thoughtful Christian asks such questions. For everyone ready to make the shift from What do I want for my life? to what does God want for my life? Fr. Gallagher offers this new book to help you make sense of your major life decisions.

    Drawing from the timeless methods of Ignatius Loyola and richly illustrated with examples and stories, this book offers practical wisdom for aligning your will to God's will. Fr. Gallagher takes you through each step of the process, including opening your heart to whatever God wants; making use of silence, the Eucharist, Scripture, and spiritual direction; and finding clarity (and what to do when you lack clarity).

    While this book focuses on the major decisions such as marriage and career and vocation choices, the insights gained here can be adapted to other significant life decisions as well. Fr. Gallagher's clear style makes this book an important resource for all who want to discover where God is leading them, as well as for spiritual directors, retreat directors, and counselors

    St. Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Jesuits, is one of the most influential spiritual leaders of all time, yet many readers find his Rules for Discernment hard to understand.

Timothy Gallagher, a talented teacher, retreat leader, and scholar, helps us understand the Rules and how their insights are essential for our spiritual growth today. By integrating the Rules and the experience of contemporary people, Gallagher shows the precision, clarity, and insight of Ignatius's Rules, as well as the relevance of his thought for spiritual life today. When we learn to read Ignatius correctly, we discover in his remarkable words our own struggles, joys, and triumphs. This book is for all who desire greater awareness of God's action in their daily spiritual lives, and is essential reading for retreat directors, spiritual directors, priests, and counselors.

    Dying to Meet Jesus: How Encountering Heaven Changed My Life

    Dying to Meet Jesus: How Encountering Heaven Changed My Life
    Kay, Randy
    $14.99
    Where is God when my suffering seems never-ending? Can I really find joy in this fallen world? This powerful book confronts these questions with stories of the author's near-death experience, a daughter's suicide attempt, mental illness, and numerous other gripping stories that demonstrate not only that God is present when we need him, but that through our trials we can find true intimacy with him.

    Author Randy Kay recounts how, as a former devout agnostic, he survived a near-fatal accident while searching for the truth--and when he met the One he sought to disprove, his journey changed from a life of extreme trials into one of genuine joy. In these pages, Kay offers his testimony to show readers how God uses suffering and brokenness to build an intimate and indestructible relationship with him, while breaking down barriers and ushering the reader into an authentic relationship with the Author of love.

    Embracing Weakness: The Unlikely Secret to Changing the World

    Embracing Weakness: The Unlikely Secret to Changing the World
    Evans, Shannon K
    $15.95

    Shannon K. Evans spent a good portion of her life denying that she was weak. Like many Christians, she was concerned with living a moral life, sticking to religious absolutes, holding leadership positions, and working on service projects. And then the truth of her inner brokenness smacked her in the face, first through her work as a missionary, and afterward through motherhood.

    Embracing Weakness: The Unlikely Secret to Changing the World is a story of vulnerability, of how one woman learned that before she could respond to the weakness of others she must first accept her own weakness as a gift, revealed in the Incarnation and Passion of Christ.
