Taking You to A Whole New Level in Loving and Appreciating You as You Begin to See Yourself Grow. She is someone who has been on this journey of cycles in which she writes about who has gotten through, who now recognizes there is no need to hold on to pain, but to let it all go—to move on without any shame. She had to learn through betrayal, no matter her relationships, whatever the form it was in or how they may have entered into her life. Whatever the degree of pain, she has had to rid the things that did not feel good or sit right. The feelings of discomfort, insecurity, dishonesty, mistrust, headaches, heartaches—she had to find ways to replace the joy back into her life, getting her faith back and trust in the Creator. She has now set herself free using the mental tools of removing the unhealthy emotional ones out of the way. Finding and being in touch has helped her to be able succeed the journey in which she was once on so much, hoping through her identification will help you do the same. Stop making yourself the one to blame. In her conclusion, she states, “This is what the Creator has done for me. Freedom and destiny has set me free. I no longer give up my dignity; I reach heights of my destiny. For it will and it has always been about me. You too can have the same. You too can be set free, no longer an individual scorn.”

When Sr. Miriam James Heidland’s life as a successful college athlete proved unfulfilling, she went searching for something deeper and ended up falling in love with Jesus. By charting her own journey toward wholeness, Heidland invites young Catholics to pursue their own relationship with Jesus. Although originally full of athletic ambition and goals for a career in sports news, Heidland was transformed in a very slow but deep way during her undergraduate years, moving from party girl to bride of Christ. In Loved as I Am: An Invitation to Conversion, Healing, and Freedom through Jesus, Heidland helps readers learn from her experience of seeking love in the wrong places and instead finding it in Christ. She shares her struggles—learning she was adopted, battling alcoholism, and healing from childhood sexual abuse—as signs of hope that anyone who desires to know Christ can find him and be loved intimately by him in return. By bringing readers into Heidland’s healing process, Loved as I Am provides a gentle and subtle template for finding peace and freedom in Jesus.

A deeply personal memoir of the private Ray Charles - the man behind the legend - by his eldest son. Ray Charles is an American music legend. A multiple Grammy Award-winning composer, pianist, and singer with an inimitable vocal style and a catalog of hits including "What I Say," "Georgia on My Mind," "Unchain My Heart," "I Can't Stop Loving You," and "America the Beautiful," Ray Charles's music is loved by fans around the world. Now his eldest son, Ray Charles Robinson Jr., shares an intimate glimpse of the man behind the music, with never-before-told stories. Going beyond the fame, the concerts, and the tours, Ray Jr. opens the doors of his family home and reveals their private lives with fondness and frankness. He shares his father's grief and guilt over his little brother's death at the age of five — as well of moments of personal joy, like watching his father run his hands over the Christmas presents under their tree while singing softly to himself. He tells of how Ray overcame the challenges of being blind, even driving cars, riding a Vespa, and flying his own plane. And, in gripping detail, he reveals how as a six-year-old boy he saved his father's life one harrowing night. Ray Jr. writes honestly about the painful facts of the addiction that nearly destroyed his father's life. His father's struggles with heroin addiction, his arrests, and how he ultimately kicked the drug cold turkey are presented in unflinching detail. Ray Jr. also shares openly about how, as an adult, he fell victim to the same temptations that plagued his father. He paints a compassionate portrait of his mother, Della, whose amazing voice as a gospel singer first attracted Ray Charles. Though her husband's drug use, his womanizing, and the paternity suits leveled against him constantly threatened the stability of the Robinson home, Della exhibited incredible resilience and inner strength. Told with deep love and fearless candor, You Don't Know Me is the powerful and poignant story of the Ray Charles the public never saw — the father and husband and fascinating human being who also happened to be one of the greatest musicians of all time. From the Hardcover edition.

Benjamin Britten was a most reluctant public speaker. Yet his contributions were without doubt a major factor in the transformation during his lifetime of the structure of the art-music industry. This book, by bringing together all his published articles, unpublished speeches, drafts, and transcriptions of numerous radio interviews, explores the paradox of a reluctant yet influential cultural commentator, artist, and humanist. Whether talking about his own music, about the role of the artist in society, about music criticism, or wading into a debate on Soviet ideology at the height of the cold war, Britten always gave a performance which reinforced the notion of a private man who nonetheless saw the importance of public disclosure.

The truth embraces all: the good, the beautiful, the bad, and the ugly. For this reason, facing the truth can be extremely hard. Of paramount importance if we want to rise above the issues of the past is letting go of past injustices. We rewrite the script and blaze the warrior's path through our own insight applied to experience. Warriors are not victimized by what has caused anguish, malice, or judgment. Warriors cannot be held down by oppression, suffering, or loss. Warriors use those experiences as a catalyst to develop greater strength and fortitude.
