  • Independence Day : What I Learned About Retirement From Some Who’ve Done It


    Four-time Pulitzer Prize finalist and longtime Los Angeles Times columnist Steve Lopez explores the meaning of work and how it defines us in this captivating book that combines memoir, investigatory interviews, and practical application.

    Grappling with his own decision of whether to retire, Lopez uses his reporter skills not only to look inward but also to interview experts and peers to collect a variety of perspectives as he examines the true nature of a person’s time, identity, and ultimate life satisfaction.

    In Independence Day, Lopez talks to those who have chosen to extend their working life to its (il)logical extreme–people like Mel Brooks, still working at 94–those who have happily retired and reinvented themselves outside of the constraints of work, and those who would like to retire but can’t because of financial constraints. He also turns to professionals on the matter, like two aging scientists, a geriatric specialist, and a psychiatrist, to understand the research-based reasons to retire.

    With his trademark poignancy, wisdom, and humor, Lopez establishes a useful polemic for himself and others in planning ahead, as he also evaluates questions of identity, financial limitations, and ultimately what to do with your life when the obituary pages are no longer filled with strangers.

  • Independence Day : What I Learned About Retirement From Some Who’ve Done It


    Steve Lopez is 67 years old. He’s the lead metropolitan columnist for the Los Angeles Times. He’s been a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize so often that they should create an award solely for him. Steve loves his job and the jolt of energy he gets from writing a column that serves as a catalyst for conversation. But he wonders what it might be like to live without ever-present deadlines hanging over his head. If his knees hold out, he’d like to play more tennis, to travel, to hike. With his daughter going to college in the fall, he and his wife will have an empty house and the time to reshape their newfound freedom.

    Lopez realizes that the end of his work life is getting close. It’s hard to accept. And is he ready?

    In Independence Day, Lopez uses his reporter skills not only to look inward but also to interview those who have chosen to extend their working life to its (il)logical extreme–people like Mel Brooks, still working at 94, or government worker Mary Lee, who is 100 and still goes to the office every day, as she has for 70 years.

    However, there are scientific reasons to retire, as outlined by the psychiatrist, two aging scientists, and geriatric specialist (all over the age of 75 themselves) he taps for their insight.

    And of course, he talks to people who are happily retired–who have reinvented themselves outside of the constraints of work–and those who would like to retire but can’t because of the financial realities of our declining economy and shrinking Social Security safety net.

    With his trademark poignancy, wisdom, and humor, Lopez establishes a useful polemic for himself and others in planning ahead, as he also examines questions of identity, financial limitations, and what to do with your wild and precious life when the obituary pages are no longer filled with strangers.

  • Called To Care Third Edition


    As nursing and healthcare continue to change, we need nurses who are committed both to a solid understanding of their profession and to caring well for patients and their families. Offering a historically and theologically grounded vision of the nurse’s call, this thoroughly revised third edition of a classic text includes practical features for educators, students, and practitioners.

    Nursing is a vocation: a calling from God to care for others. The role of the nurse originally grew out of a holistic Christian understanding of humans as created in the image of God. Yet as nursing and healthcare continue to change, the effects have proven disorienting to many. Now more than ever, we need nurses who are committed both to a solid understanding of their profession and to caring well for patients and their families. For over twenty years, Called to Care has served as a unique and essential resource for nurses. In this third edition Judith Allen Shelly and Arlene B. Miller, now joined by coauthor Kimberly H. Fenstermacher, present a definition for nursing based on a historically and theologically grounded vision of the nurse’s call: Nursing is a ministry of compassionate and restorative care for the whole person, in response to God’s grace, which aims to promote and foster optimum health (shalom) and bring comfort in suffering and death for anyone in need. Focusing on the features of the nursing metaparadigm-person, health, environment, and nursing-they provide a framework for understanding how the Christian faith relates to the many aspects of a nurse’s work, from theory to everyday practice. This new edition of Called to Care is thoroughly revised for today’s nurses, including updated examples and new content on topics such as cultural competency, palliative care, and the current state of healthcare and nursing education. Each chapter features learning objectives, discussion questions, case studies, and theological reflections from Scripture to help readers engage and apply the content. For educators, students, and practitioners throughout the field of nursing, this classic text continues to provide clarity and wisdom for living out their calling.

  • Proximity Principle : The Proven Strategy That Will Lead To A Career You Lo

    In his latest book, The Proximity Principle, national radio host and career expert Ken Coleman provides a simple plan of how positioning yourself near the right people and places can help you land the job you love.

You’ll discover the five people you should look for and the four best places to grow, learn, practice, and perform so you can step into the role you were created to fill.

  • Real Artists Dont Starve


    Bestselling author and creativity expert Jeff Goins dismantles the myth that being creative is a hindrance to success by revealing how an artistic temperament is in fact a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Now in trade paper.

    For centuries, the myth of the starving artist has dominated our culture, seeping into the minds of creative people and stifling their pursuits. But the truth is that the world’s most successful artists did not starve. In fact, they capitalized on the power of their creative strength. In Real Artists Don’t Starve, Jeff Goins debunks the myth of the starving artist by unveiling the ideas that created it and replacing them with timeless strategies for thriving, including:

    steal from your influences (don’t wait for inspiration),
    collaborate with others (working alone is a surefire way to starve),
    take strategic risks (instead of reckless ones),
    make money in order to make more art (it’s not selling out), and
    apprentice under a master (a “lone genius” can never reach full potential).
    Through inspiring anecdotes of successful creatives both past and present, Goins shows that living by these rules is not only doable but it’s also a fulfilling way to thrive.

    From graphic designers and writers to artists and business professionals, creatives already know that no one is born an artist. Goins’s revolutionary rules celebrate the process of becoming an artist, a person who utilizes the imagination in fundamental ways. He reminds creatives that business and art are not mutually exclusive pursuits. In fact, success in business and in life flow from a healthy exercise of creativity.

    Expanding upon the groundbreaking work in his previous bestseller The Art of Work, Goins explores the tension every creative person and organization faces in an effort to blend the inspired life with a practical path to success. Being creative isn’t a disadvantage for success; rather, it is a powerful tool to be harnessed.

    Is there more to clinical supervision than our current theories and methods can provide? Whether we intend them to be or not, our mentoring practices are personally formative for supervisees and supervisors alike. Developing Clinicians of Character grounds our thinking in the historic and contemporary wisdom of virtue ethics and grows out of a love for the practice of clinical supervision. It aims to identify and strengthen supervision’s important role for character formation in the classroom, in continuing education for practitioners, and in clinical settings.

    After an overview of the role of character formation in clinical supervision, Developing Clinicians of Character examines each classical Christian virtue in turn, its corresponding professional ethical aspiration, and how we can use the practices of clinical supervision and spiritual formation together to foster character formation for Christian maturity and Christlikeness.

    Dr. Terri S. Watson welcomes and equips you to excel in “the helping profession within a helping profession” as you provide clinical supervision for other mental health workers in counseling, psychology, and marriage and family therapy. This book will shape your own character through spiritual disciplines in the classical virtues-and outward in expanding circles of encouragement, formation, and healing.

  • Power Of Character In Leadership


    How to Protect Your Leadership Influence and Power

    You’ve worked hard to achieve your dreams and goals. Many others have done the same-only to lose it all in the end. Every day, we read about successful people in various walks of life who have lost their power and influence. They’ve been fired, forced to resign, or shamed out of public life. They no longer have a market for their gifts, and they may even face criminal proceedings. These leaders have lost the trust of their companies, constituents, nations, followers, and families. Many were surprised to discover that their talents alone were not enough to prevent their downfall.

    Why did they fail in the end? Because they lacked the one quality that would have protected their leadership and given them enduring influence. Ironically, this quality is seldom taught to leaders today, either formally or informally. It is the quality of moral force, or character.

    Every human being is a leader over some domain as he or she exercises gifts and influence. That domain might be the halls of government, the boardroom, the classroom, the community, or the home. In The Power of Character in Leadership: How Values, Morals, Ethics, and Principles Affect Leaders, you will discover what character is, what it means to develop moral force, and how to preserve your leadership influence so that it is both effective and enduring.

  • Calling In Todays World


    Comparative religious insights into the meaning of vocation

    The concept of “vocation” or “calling” is a distinctively Christian concern, grounded in the long-held belief that we find our meaning, purpose, and fulfillment in God. But what about religions other than Christianity? What does it mean for someone from another faith tradition to understand calling or vocation?

    In this book contributors with expertise in Catholic and Protestant Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism and Daoism, and secular humanism explore the idea of calling in these various faith traditions. The contributors each search their respective tradition’s sacred texts, key figures, practices, and concepts for wisdom on the meaning of vocation. By seeking comparative insights from diverse faith traditions, say Kathleen Cahalan and Douglas Schuurman, we can all increase and improve our efforts to build a better, more humane world.

  • Pastor : The Theology And Practice Of Ordained Ministry (Revised)


    Ordained ministry, says Willimon, is a gift of God to the church–but that doesn’t mean that it is easy. Always a difficult vocation, changes in society and the church in recent years have made the ordained life all the more complex and challenging. Is the pastor primarily a preacher, a professional caregiver, an administrator? Given the call of all Christians to be ministers to the world, what is the distinctive ministry of the ordained? When does one’s ministry take on the character of prophet, and when does it become that of priest? What are the special ethical obligations and disciplines of the ordained? In this book, Willimon explores these and other central questions about the vocation of ordained ministry. He begins with a discussion of who pastors are, asking about the theological underpinnings of ordained ministry, and then moves on to what pastors do, looking at the distinctive roles the pastor must fulfill. The book also draws on great teachers of the Christian tradition to demonstrate that, while much about Christian ministry has changed, its core concerns–preaching the word, the care of souls, the sacramental life of congregations–remains the same. Ordained ministry is a vocation to which we are called, not a profession that we choose. To answer that call is to open oneself to heartache and sometimes hardship; yet, given the one who calls, it is to make oneself available to deep and profound joy as well.

    “Grant, Lord, that I may know myself that I may know thee.” -Augustine

    Much is said in Christian circles about knowing God. But Christians throughout the ages have agreed that there cannot be deep knowledge of God without deep knowledge of the self. Discerning your true self is inextricably related to discerning God’s purposes for you. Paradoxically, the more you become like Christ, the more you become authentically yourself.

    In this profound exploration of Christian identity, psychologist and spiritual director David G. Benner illuminates the spirituality of self-discovery. He exposes the false selves that you may hide behind and calls you to discover the true self that emerges from your uniqueness in Christ. Freeing you from illusions about yourself, Benner shows that self-understanding leads to the fulfillment of your God-given destiny and vocation.

    Rest assured, you need not try to be someone you are not. But you will deepen your experience of God through discovering the gift of being yourself.

    This expanded edition, one of three titles in The Spiritual Journey trilogy, includes a new epilogue and an experiential guide with questions for individual reflection or group discussion.

    Why did they fail in the end? Because they lacked the one quality that would have protected their leadership and given them enduring influence. Ironically, this quality is seldom taught to leaders today, either formally or informally. It is the quality of moral force, or character.

    Every human being is a leader over some domain as he or she exercises gifts and influence. That domain might be the halls of government, the boardroom, the classroom, the community, or the home. In The Power of Character in Leadership, you will discover what character is, what it means to develop moral force, and how to preserve your leadership influence so that it is both effective and enduring.

    Como proteger la influencia y el poder de su liderazgo

    Usted ha trabajado duro para lograr sus sueos y metas. Muchos otros han hecho lo mismo, solo para perderlo todo al final. Cada dia, leemos sobre personas exitosas en varios ambitos de la vida que han perdido su poder y su influencia. Han sido despedidos, obligados a renunciar, o sacados con verguenza de la vida publica. Ya no tienen un mercado para sus dones, y puede que incluso se enfrenten a acciones judiciales. Esos lideres han perdido la confianza de sus empresas, electores, naciones, seguidores y familias. Muchos quedaron sorprendidos al descubrir que sus talentos por si solos no fueron suficientes para evitar su caida.

    Por que fracasaron al final? Porque carecian de la unica cualidad que habria protegido su liderazgo y les habria dado influencia perdurable. Ironicamente, esta cualidad rara vez se ensea a los lideres actualmente, ya sea formalmente o informalmente. Es la cualidad de la fuerza moral, o caracter.

    Todo ser humano es un lider sobre algun dominio en el que el o ella ejercita dones e influencia. Ese dominio podria ser los pasillos del gobierno, la sala de juntas, el salo

    God calls us first to himself, to know and follow him, and also to a specific life purpose, a particular reason for being. This second call or “vocation” has implications not only for our work or occupation, but also includes our giftedness, our weaknesses, our life in community and what we do day to day. In this book Gordon Smith invites us to discover our vocation by listening to God and becoming coworkers with him.
    What is my calling?
    How do I live it out in the midst of difficult relationships or moral challenges?
    Will my vocation change as I enter a new stage of life?
    With competing needs and demands, how can I craft a balanced way of living?
    In the pages of this book, these questions and many more are addressed. This new edition has been revised and updated throughout. The first two chapters are expanded, with a new chapter on four specific areas of calling. Here is rich insight for all who long for the ears to hear and the courage to follow God’s call.

  • Failing Forward : Turning Mistakes Into Stepping Stones For Success


    Are some people born to achieve anything they want while others struggle? Call them lucky, blessed, or possessors of the Midas touch. What is the real reason for their success? Is it family background, wealth, greater opportunities, high morals, an easy childhood?
    John Maxwell has the answer—the difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure.

    Most people are never prepared to deal with failure. Maxwell says that if you are like him, coming out of school, you feared it, misunderstood it, and ran away from it. But Maxwell learned to make failure his friend, and he can teach you to do the same.

    “I want to help you learn how to confidently look the prospect of failure in the eye and move forward anyway,” says Maxwell. “Because in life, the question is not if you will have problems, but how you are going to deal with them. Stop failing backward and start failing forward!”

  • Balancing Work And Life


    Life is more like a marathon than a sprint. Here’s how to stay well conditioned.

    Bill Butterworth will make you laugh-and learn while you’re doing it! In the opening chapter of this powerful little book, Bill shares with you how, while running his rotund body in a nightmarish 440-yard dash, he learned a great lesson:
    Life is much more like a marathon than a sprint.

    The attitudes and actions that result in steady success over the long haul are what make for long-term satisfaction and achievement. To experience this for yourself, you need to understand how to deal with life’s inevitable challenges:
    *The “Hazies”-losing sight of long-term goals
    *The “Lazies”-lacking the self-discipline to bring life back into focus
    *The “Crazies”-allowing life to run out of control

    Each of these can be conquered by three “clarifying triangles:” setting clear priorities, learning the discipline of endurance, and reaching the finish line through skillful pacing. It all adds up to a succinct and inspiring guide to balancing excellence at work with fulfillment in all of life.

  • Joy At Work


    PRAISE FOR JOY AT WORK This is not your everyday leadership book about how to survive in the corporate jungle, or how to outfox the competition to build a bigger bank account. Dennis Bakke knows that business is not just about the bottom line. It’s about something much more important. “Work,” as Bakke explains, “is one of the ways we honor or ‘glorify’ God.” Today, joy and work are rarely used in the same sentence. But God really does intend for us to find joy in our work. Is this possible? Can this be accomplished in a fallen world? Dennis Bakke, a graduate of the Harvard Business School, wrestled with these questions when he cofounded AES, a worldwide energy giant, in 1981. Shaped by his faith, Bakke sets off on a quest to create the most fun workplace ever-using principles established in the Garden. In Joy At Work, Bakke describes how he empowered people to use their God-given talents free of needles bureaucracy, obliterated management, eliminated job descriptions, and pushed decision-making responsibility down to the plant floor. These principles extend beyond the walls of business, and can be applied to nonprofit organizations, churches and even your family. “The idea of creating a workplace in which everyone maximized his or her God-given potential and serves the community is a strong biblical principle. This book provides valuable ideas for leaders who wish to build or strengthen organizations using sound spiritual principles: service, integrity, and social responsibility. Dennis Bakke knows firsthand what it is to put these truths to work.” -Chuck Colson, Founder, Prison Fellowship Ministries

  • Como Ganarse A La Gente – (Spanish)


    Descripcion (Description): Las relaciones son el epicentro de todas las experiencias positivas en los seres humanos. Desde el momento en que nacemos, las relaciones nos marcan, en nuestras familias, en el campo de juegos, en la escuela y en nuestros trabajos. Maxwell, un comunicador maestro y experto en estudio relacional, hace que el aprendizaje sobre las relaciones sea algo accesible para todos. Los lideres mas sofisticados y los vendedores podran asirse de habilidades que los haran progresar y los novatos en relaciones aprenderan tecnicas que los transformaran en unos verdaderos dinamos de sus relaciones.

    Relationships are at the heart of every positive human experience. From the moment of birth, relationships mark us – in our families, on the playground, at school, and in the workplace.

    Maxwell, a master communicator and relational expert, makes learning about relationships accessible to everyone. The most sophisticated leaders and salespeople will pick up on skills that will make them even better. And relational novices will learn skills that can transform them into relational dynamos.

    Maxwell’s secret is the people principles he teaches. Relationships work and build on five levels: Readiness, Connection, Trust, Investment, and Reward. On each level are principles that will change the way you view interpersonal relationships. Some are intuitive, such as the Mirror Principle: The first person we must examine is ourselves. Others may go against your instincts, such as the Confrontation Principle: Caring for people should precede confronting people. All of them are 100 percent practical!

    Maxwell delves into issues that confront us in the workplace, at home, in church, at school – in short, anyplace you find people. And he reveals not only the benefits of developing healthy relationships, but how to actually do it. Working with others is the key to success in every area of life. As Maxwell says, “If you can win with people, you can win!”

    About The Author

    Additional Info
    With Who Moved My Cheese? Dr. Spencer Johnson realizes the need for finding the language and tools to deal with change–an issue that makes all of us nervous and uncomfortable.
    Most people are fearful of change because they don’t believe they have any control over how or when it happens to them. Since change happens either to the individual or by the individual, Spencer Johnson shows us that what matters most is the attitude we have about change.

    When the Y2K panic gripped the corporate realm before the new millenium, most work environments finally recognized the urgent need to get their computers and other business systems up to speed and able to deal with unprecedented change. And businesses realized that this was not enough: they needed to help people get ready, too.

    Spencer Johnson has created his new book to do just that. The coauthor of the multimillion bestseller The One Minute Manager has written a deceptively simple story with a dramatically important message that can radically alter the way we cope with change. Who Moved My Cheese? allows for common themes to become topics for discussion and individual interpretation.

    Who Moved My Cheese? takes the fear and anxiety out of managing the future and shows people a simple way to successfully deal with the changing times, providing them with a method for moving ahead with their work and lives safely and effectively.

  • Also A Mother


    As the twentieth century closes, the cry for equality between the sexes is provoking unprecedented conflicts between women and men in the workplace and in the family. Women of all colors and classes continue to carry out an enormous amount of indispenable, unrenumerated caring labor, which at once undergirds and is peripheral to human life, as men have defined it and therefore without value. Also a Mother protests this defined it, and therefore without value. Also a Mother protests this definition of work and value, and claims that beneath the everyday scuffles over gender roles and child care lies an essential religious crisis of work and love. Drawing on her situation as seminary professor and mother of three sons, Bonnie J. Miller-McLemore argues that Christian ideals of mother self-sacrifice and fatherly hard work, as they have been interpreted by church tradition and promoted in society at large, not only fail the lives of many people today, but misrepresent both the intent of God’s creation and the promise of the gospel message itself. She asks: How might theological doctrines of love, self sacrifice, creation, procreation, vocation, and community better respond to women and men who want to work in fulfilling ways and to love in intimate relationships, including those that involve raising children?
