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

product image
$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

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

product image
$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

$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.

    Broken Way: A Daring Path Into the Abundant Life

    $22.99

    *New York Times Bestseller*

    Not one thing in your life is more important than figuring out how to live in the face of unspoken pain.

    New York Times bestselling author of One Thousand Gifts Ann Voskamp sits at the edge of her life and all of her own unspoken brokenness and asks: What if you really want to live abundantly before it's too late? What do you do if you really want to know abundant wholeness? This is the one begging question that's behind every single aspect of our lives--and one that The Broken Way rises up to explore in the most unexpected ways.

    This one's for the lovers and the sufferers. For those whose hopes and dreams and love grew so large it broke their willing hearts. This one's for the busted ones who are ready to bust free, the ones ready to break molds, break chains, break measuring sticks, and break all this bad brokenness with an unlikely good brokenness. You could be one of the Beloved who is broken--and still lets yourself be loved.

    You could be one of them, one who believes freedom can be found not only beyond the fear and pain, but actually within it.

    You could discover and trust this broken way--the way to not be afraid of broken things.

    product image
    $11.99
    We're always looking for new ways to encounter Scripture--to go beyond the usual format of reading, reflection and questions. Many people have been rediscovering lectio divina, a way of contemplating Scripture practiced by monks since the Middle Ages. As an aid to lectio, or just a fun new way to pray with Bible verses, this book combines contemplating Scripture with coloring, helping the reader go into a sacred space where they can encounter and connect with the reading more deeply.

    This coloring book was created with the bestselling author of Praying in Color, Sybil MacBeth. Sybil writes and leads workshops about using doodling to contemplate Scripture. 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. It is a perfect way for individuals, families, and groups to learn more about this ancient practice, paired with coloring.

    Daring to Hope: Finding God's Goodness in the Broken and the Beautiful

    product image
    $25.99
    New York Times bestseller

    How do you hold on to hope
    when you don't get the ending
    you asked for?

    When Katie Davis Majors moved to Uganda, accidentally founded a booming organization, and later became the mother of thirteen girls through the miracle of adoption, she determined to weave her life together with the people she desired to serve. But joy often gave way to sorrow as she invested her heart fully in walking alongside people in the grip of poverty, addiction, desperation, and disease.

    After unexpected tragedy shook her family, for the first time Katie began to wonder, Is God really good? Does He really love us? When she turned to Him with her questions, God spoke truth to her heart and drew her even deeper into relationship with Him.

    Daring to Hope is an invitation to cling to the God of the impossible--the God who whispers His love to us in the quiet, in the mundane, when our prayers are not answered the way we want or the miracle doesn't come. It's about a mother discovering the extraordinary strength it takes to be ordinary. It's about choosing faith no matter the circumstance and about encountering God's goodness in the least expected places.

    Though your heartaches and dreams may take a different shape, you will find your own questions echoed in these pages. You'll be reminded of the gifts of joy in the midst of sorrow. And you'll hear God's whisper: Hold on to hope. I will meet you here.

    Discerning the Will of God

    $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'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

    Good Enough Is Good Enough: Confessions of an Imperfect Catholic Mom

    $15.95
    The truth about parenting is that you don't have to get everything right and your family doesn't need to be perfect. Colleen Duggan learned those lessons through years of struggling with unrealistic expectations.

    In this frank and intimate story, Duggan explores the emotional and spiritual healing that needed to take place in her life in order to be the parent, spouse, and follower of Christ God created her to be. Sharing both funny parenting moments and difficult times of self-scrutiny, Duggan invites us to join her in experiencing God's healing mercy and shows how to allow that healing to rejuvenate our lives and revitalize our families.

    As a child, Duggan smoothed over the jagged edges of her difficult home life with good grades and perfect behavior. By the time Duggan was an adult, her drive to constantly be in control was her way of life. It was only when she began raising her family that she realized how damaging this compulsion was for both her and the people around her.

    That's when she began her faltering journey toward letting God be in control.

    In Good Enough Is Good Enough, Duggan shares her heartaches--learning her child has a genetic disorder that might lead to cancer; realizing that her drive to do and be everything for everyone strained her marriage; and struggling with feelings of worthlessness after leaving her job to become "just" a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom. She also shares parenting difficulties we've all faced--trying to keep her kids quiet during Mass; wondering whether she's giving them enough opportunities for growth; and balancing time spent on herself, her kids, and others. With each story, we feel the brokenness she tried to cover by being a "perfect" parent and the eventual realization that she needed to find healing.

    Through the saints, the Sacraments, and Catholic traditions and literature, Duggan found the Church a place where God's love and healing grace embraced her. She invites us to the same conclusion: whether we are dealing with everyday frustrations or life-changing tragedies, it is in the heart of the Catholic Church that we are finally free to let go of our facades in order to embrace our brokenness and find healing.

    This Bible study, part of our popular Keys to the Bible series, will examine six of the Gospel stories in which Jesus healed those suffering from a variety of physical or spiritual afflictions. While healings demonstrate the love and compassion that Jesus has for each one of us, they are also a sign of the new creation he came to inauguratean announcement that the kingdom of God is at hand. Even today, supernatural healing gifts are meant to be a sign that God is present and active in the world today. This study will help you view Jesus healings in a new way and encourage you to pray for healing for yourself, your family, and those you encounter each day.

    Homosexuality and Following Jesus

    JESUS' PRAYER WAS "THAT ALL MAY BE ONE"

    In this clear, concise, and compelling book, Paul Flaman addresses ways in which we can contribute to fulfilling this foundational prayer of the Christian life when it comes to the issue of homosexuality — an issue that has caused much division in countries, churches, and families around the world.

    Flaman argues that Jesus' example and teaching help us to focus on what is most important, including his call for us to: treat others the way we would like to be treated; respond to the real needs of others in loving others as he loves us; live according to the truth; take up our cross to find fullness of life; avoid sexual immorality; and forgive and be reconciled and healed.

    “... As someone who has lived with same-sex attraction ... "I found" Homosexuality and Following Jesus "to be a very encouraging and thought-provoking work" ...” —ANONYMOUS

    “... "highly recommended for Christians and non-Christians alike."” —EUGENE RATSOY, Professor Emeritus of Education, University of Alberta

    “... "helps us move beyond an often sterile debate full of well-worn arguments" ...” —REV. SEAN LARKIN, Anglican Bishop

    “... "uniquely explores how our approach to individuals with same-sex attraction must reflect the teachings and the love of Christ."” —REV. PAUL CHECK, Executive Director, Courage International

    Paul Flaman is an associate professor of Christian theology, St. Joseph's College, University of Alberta. He is also the author of "Genetic Engineering": "Christian Values and Catholic Teaching" (Paulist Press).

    How to Be Happy How to Be Holy

    product image
    $11.95
    Very few Catholic writers indeed can touch the minds and hearts of all Catholics-whatever their background -and Fr. Paul O'Sullivan happens to be one of these rare few. In How to Be Happy-How to Be Holy, Fr. O'Sullivan teaches all Christians about prayer: 1) how to pray, 2) how to derive immense benefits from prayer, and 3) how to enjoy the deep consolation of prayer. In the process, he focuses first on the profound meanings of our basic Catholic prayers: The Sign of the Cross, The Our Father, The Hail Mary, The Glory Be, The Apostles' Creed, The Morning Offering, The Confiteor, etc. Next follows a full and beautiful explanation of the Rosary and each of its Mysteries. Then he paints the wonders of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and finally he concludes on the power of ejaculations and the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary. The most beautiful aspect of this consoling and moving book-as in fact of all Fr. O'Sullivan's writings-is his frequent use of lovely, short anecdotes from the lives of the Saints. And the principal value of this book is that it proves one need not be a saint to enjoy prayer and to derive great benefits from it. Every Catholic should own and read this charming book, for if ever a book were conceived and written to inspire people to pray, and to show them what great results and consolations are to be derived from prayer, it is Fr. O'Sullivan's How to Be Happy-How to Be Holy.
