The love between a parent and a child is a perfect example of how Christ loves us. We are all brought into this world, innocent and wanting to be held and loved. As a parent, we love these little people unconditionally. They did not do anything to earn our love, yet we love them immensely. We want the best for them and we would give our lives for them. Christ did the same for us, so it's pretty clear how intense his love is for us. If our father would give his life for us, don't you think we are pretty significant?The author includes psychology, the power of prayer and life-coaching strategies to help the reader in finding your purpose.

“Eat, pray . . . kick ass. Delivered with self-deprecating candor, Schorn's life lessons learned at the dojo will resonate with anyone who's ever tried to remodel a house, raise kids, cope with a health crisis, navigate office politics or hyperventilated—essentially anyone who's ever been slammed on the mat while testing for the black belt of life. Like the fighter herself, you can't put this one down.”—Mary Moore, author of The Unexpected When You're Expecting Susan Schorn led an anxious life. For no clear reason, she had become progressively paralyzed by fear. Fed up with feeling powerless, she took up karate. She learned how to say no and how to fight when you have to (even in the dark). Karate taught her how to persuade her husband to wear a helmet, best one bossy Girl Scout troop leader, and set boundaries with an over-sharing boss. Here this double black belt recounts a fighting, biting, laughing woman's journey on the road to living fearlessly—where enlightenment is as much about embracing absurdity and landing a punch as about finding that perfect method of meditation. Full of hilarious hijinks and tactical wisdom, Schorn's quest for a more satisfying life features practical—and often counterintuitive—lessons about safety and self defense. Smile at strangers, she says. Question your habits, your fears, your self-criticism: Self-criticism is easy. Self-improvement is hard. And don’t forget this essential gem: Everybody wants to have adventures. Whether they know it or not. Join the adventure in these pages, and come through it poised to have more of your own.

'Sis, the worst thing CF [cystic fibrosis] can do is kill me. It can't stop me from living.' Todd Gibbs spoke those words once to his sister and he proved that statement true time and time again. Though cystic fibrosis did kill him five days after his thirty-first birthday, the living he did showed that he had won the battle, even if CF eventually won the war. Not a Wasted Breath is not just a story about living with a fatal disease or waiting for a transplant. That was only a part of Todd's life. He never allowed his illness to rule his life, even in the face of over eighty hospitalizations. This is truly a story about how others perceived Todd, how they were affected by his presence in their lives, and how Todd viewed himself and his existence. In a poignant compilation of thoughts, memories, articles, and journal entries, LaRecea Gibbs, Todd's mother, creates a touching tableau of a life well spent that will inspire anyone to overcome personal obstacles through faith, determination, courage, and most of all, humor. Join mother and author LaRecea Gibbs in an inspiring biography which shows that though Todd's life was short, he never wasted a single breath. This Book is an inspiration to all readers in appreciating the gift of life. The account is thorough, has depth of development, is authentic, and puts us inside the people involved. Not a Wasted Breath enables readers to travel along emotionally. As a result, we count our own blessings.
