Do you have anyone in your life who can't seem to stick with a project, meet a deadline, or even clean up after themselves? All of us feel we deserve special treatment sometimes. Some people live with this entitled attitude, such as:

  • Professionals who wander from job to job looking for a boss who will see them as amazing as they consider themselves to be--whether they're productive or not
  • Young adults who refuse to grow up and so go nowhere
  • Spouses or dates who believe, "I'm special, and I deserve more than you're giving me"
  • Leaders who expect special treatment because of their position, not because of their character
  • If you have a difficult relationship with an entitled person, or if you have discovered entitlement in yourself, understand this: It doesn't have to stay this way. There is a cure. It's called the Hard Way and it works.

    In The Entitlement Cure, Dr. John Townsend explains that the Hard Way is a habit that focuses on doing whatever is needed even if it is difficult, uncomfortable, takes longer, and requires more energy. Dr. Townsend offers daily steps, such as risk-taking, to help you or those you love choose the Hard Way.

    Ultimately, entitlement fails us. We don't develop the character abilities and relationships necessary to reach success and become the people God intended us to be. By contrast, Hard Way people have better relationships, reach their goals, have a clear job direction, enjoy rich spiritual growth, and are equipped to face and solve challenges.

    As Dr. Townsend writes, "Stand against entitlement in every form in which it manifests itself. Resolve your own tendencies toward the disease. Be a loving and firm force for helping those in its trap to find life and hope. And you will make the world a better place." Discover why the Hard Way is the best way in this practical guide to true success.

    Most every woman dreams about having a family and a building a home. We grow up on a steady diet of fairytales and chick flicks that drive our dreams . . . and leave us with a sugarcoated version of reality. We want it all: the prince, the kiss, the proposal, the ring, the castle, and eventually, the kids in smocked rompers playing cheerfully on the perfectly manicured lawn. Our hopes and dreams are pinned on the world's version of happily-ever-after.

    The problem is, the fairytales and chick flicks end where real life begins. We never see that follow-up scene where the prince and princess argue at 3 a.m. over who will get up with the colicky newborn. Or the princess reluctantly returns to work to help pay the bills and feels the stress of juggling work and family. And you certainly won't see that part where the princess moves her last child into the dorm and realizes the bulk of her identity has been based on being a mother.

    The truth is, marriage and motherhood are hard. Few of us are prepared to handle the balancing act of being a good wife and a good mother, without one or the other getting the short end of the stick. No matter how much we give or how hard we try, we never quite feel like it's enough. And heaven help us, we always imagine every one else is doing a much better job.

    In Ever After, best-selling author Vicki Courtney addresses the realities of marriage and motherhood, the difficulties and the blessings. It offers women a behind the scenes glimpse of what a fairytale really looks like on the average day for the average wife and mom. Poignant, funny, and even cathartic, Vicki shares mistakes made, lessons learned, and memories to keep. Most of all, she reflects the hope and promise that God meets us in the middle wherever we are in the journey.

    Kantowitz, Roediger, and Elmes, all prominent researchers, take an example-based approach to the fundamentals of research methodology. The book is organized by topic--such as research in human factors, learning, thinking, and problem solving--and the authors discuss and clarify research methods in the context of actual research conducted in these specific areas. This unique feature helps readers connect the concepts of sound methodology with their practical applications. Carefully selected real-world examples allow readers to see for themselves the issues and problems that can occur in conducting research. More importantly, readers develop a sense of how to anticipate and adjust for problems in their own research.

    Famous Stutterers

    $21.00
    Moses, Aristotle, Civil War hero Joshua Chamberlain, King George VI, Winston Churchill, Marilyn Monroe, distinguished historian Peter Brown, TV journalist John Stossel, Senator's wife Annie Glenn, ABC correspondent Byron Pitts, novelist John Updike. For all of these accomplished persons, stuttering was an enormous difficulty. None had a sure-fire remedy. Most had to blunder and stumble through. The persistence and courage they displayed tells us that there might be ways we too can survive and achieve--despite our own difficulties. ""Gerald McDermott's Famous Stutterers is a noble read. It not only tells the stories of twelve lives across religious, political, literary, and public media spheres who have changed the world, it also inspires us to a life of courage and determination no matter what obstacles we face. Soon in these pages we begin to see how even the impediment of stuttering can become the impetus for greatness."" --Mark Graham, Senior Pastor, St. John Lutheran Church (NALC), Roanoke, Virginia ""Gerald McDermott's book featuring twelve individuals who live (or lived) with stuttering is scholarly, interesting, and very well researched. The twelve include historical and current men and women with some surprises that they lived with stuttering. The author provides insight not only into the character of these individuals but also into the role stuttering played in shaping their lives, careers, and personal development. A page-turner for this reader."" --Judith Kuster, Professor Emeritus, Minnesota State University, Mankato ""This book is an interesting compilation of past and current famous people who stutter. Filled with historical facts, it shows the depth of difficulties people with this speech disorder may experience, and surprising positive growth and accomplishments in these individuals as a result of dealing with this life-long struggle. One can be greatly shaped by stuttering or use it to shape oneself for great things."" --Janet Thompson, Speech Pathologist Gerald R. McDermott is Anglican Chair of Divinity at Beeson Divinity School. He is the author or editor of seventeen books. He is also a stutterer.

    What does the Bible say on the topic of suicide? What does it not say? G. Lloyd Carr, now professor emeritus of biblical and theological studies at Gordon College, Mass., began to ask these questions after a precious daughter-in-law died by suicide. He embarked on a thorough canvassing of the scriptures and church history on this topic, which helped him on his grief journey. His poet wife, Gwendolyn C. Carr, found solace in writing out her responses and thoughts in moving, sensitive poetry. Their combined efforts in this distinctive book meld the pain and poignancy of the devastating experience of a family member's suicide with expertise from their respective professions.

    Fierce Goodbye is first and foremost a penetrating account of a family dealing with suicide, and offers solid guidance for those who worry about the eternal fate of a loved one. It provides a reliable and readable summary of Christian thinking about suicide, useful for pastors, counselors, students, and teachers.
