            Out of the Blue, Out: A guide through the journey of grief and healing (Paperback)

            The journey of grief after the sudden loss of a loved one can be terribly hard. So painful. Mary Redmayne shares a path through grief. Observations she made during a walk in the New Zealand bush inspired analogies of the journey of grief. Both of these are supported by her evoc...ative photographs, prayers, and poetry, along with Bible quotes, and suggested songs and music which come with a playlist accessible online. Each double page can stand alone as a meditation for a particular need, or it can be read as a whole. The second half offers inspiration for healing through a wide range of sensory and meditative experiences, and uplifting photographs. While everyone's grief is so individual, this book lets you know you are not alone.

            The thrilling, cinematic story of a community shattered by disaster--and the extraordinary woman who helped pull it back together A powerful, heart-wrenching book, as much art as it is journalism. --The Wall Street Journal A beautifully wrought and profoundly joyful story of comp...assion and perseverance. --BuzzFeed (Best Books of the Year) In the spring of 1964, Anchorage, Alaska, was a modern-day frontier town yearning to be a metropolis--the largest, proudest city in a state that was still brand-new. But just before sundown on Good Friday, the community was jolted by the most powerful earthquake in American history, a catastrophic 9.2 on the Richter Scale. For four and a half minutes, the ground lurched and rolled. Streets cracked open and swallowed buildings whole. And once the shaking stopped, night fell and Anchorage went dark. The city was in disarray and sealed off from the outside world. Slowly, people switched on their transistor radios and heard a familiar woman's voice explaining what had just happened and what to do next. Genie Chance was a part-time radio reporter and working mother who would play an unlikely role in the wake of the disaster, helping to put her fractured community back together. Her tireless broadcasts over the next three days would transform her into a legendary figure in Alaska and bring her fame worldwide--but only briefly. That Easter weekend in Anchorage, Genie and a cast of endearingly eccentric characters--from a mountaineering psychologist to the local community theater group staging Our Town--were thrown into a jumbled world they could not recognize. Together, they would make a home in it again. Drawing on thousands of pages of unpublished documents, interviews with survivors, and original broadcast recordings, This Is Chance! is the hopeful, gorgeously told story of a single catastrophic weekend and proof of our collective strength in a turbulent world. There are moments when reality instantly changes--when the life we assume i

            A surprising take on how you can help tackle the really big problems in society-from one of America's most successful entrepreneurs. People are looking for a better way. Towering barriers are holding millions of people back, and the institutions that should help everyone rise are... not doing the job. Crumbling communities. One-size fits all education. Businesses that rig the economy. Public policy that stifles opportunity and emboldens the extremes. As a result, this country is quickly heading toward a two-tiered society. Today's challenges call for nothing short of a paradigm shift - away from a top-down approach that sees people as problems to be managed, toward bottom-up solutions that empower everyone to realize their potential and foster a more inclusive society. Such a shift starts by asking: What would it mean to truly believe in people? Businessman and philanthropist Charles Koch has devoted his life to answering that question. Learn what he's discovered during his 60-year career to help you apply the principles of empowerment in your life, in your business, and in society. By learning from the social movements and applying the principles that have enabled social progress throughout history, Koch has achieved more than he dreamed possible - building one of the world's most successful companies and founding Stand Together, one of America's most innovative philanthropic communities. Stand Together CEO Brian Hooks and Koch show how the only way to solve the really big problems - from poverty and addiction to harmful business practices and destructive public policy - is for each and every one of us to find and take action in our unique role as part of the solution. Full of compelling examples of what works - including several first-person accounts from individuals whose lives have been transformed - Koch and Hooks' refreshing approach promotes partnership instead of partisanship and speaks to people from different perspectives and all walks of life. They show that
