It’s never too late to be a better father Jim Daly, president and CEO of Focus on the Family, is an expert in fatherhood—in part because his own "fathers" failed him so badly. His biological dad was an alcoholic. His stepfather deserted him. His foster father accused Jim of trying to kill him. All were out of Jim's life by the time he turned 13. Isn’t it odd—and reminiscent of the hand of God—that the director of the leading organization on family turned out to be a guy whose own background as a kid and son were pretty messed up? Or could it be that successful parenting is discovered not in the perfect, peaceful household but in the midst of battles and messy situations, where God must constantly be called to the scene? That is the mystery unraveled in this book. Using his own expertise, humor, and inexhaustible wealth of stories, Jim will show you that God can make you a good dad, a great dad, in spite of the way you’ve grown up and in spite of the mistakes you’ve made. Maybe even because of them. It’s not about becoming a perfect father. It’s about trying to become a better father, each and every day. It's about building relationships with your children through love, grace, patience, and fun—and helping them grow into the men and women they’re meant to be.

Have you ever met someone with the perfect job? To the outside observer, it seems like they've won the career lottery—that by some stroke of luck or circumstance they've found the one thing they love so much that it doesn't even feel like work—and they're getting paid well to do it. In reality, their good fortune has nothing to do with chance. There’s a method for finding your perfect job, and Chris Guillebeau, the bestselling author of The $100 Startup, has created a practical guide for how to do it—whether within a traditional company or business, or by striking out on your own. Finding the work you were “born to do” isn’t just about discovering your passion. Doing what brings you joy is great, but if you aren’t earning a living, it’s a hobby, not a career. And those who jump out of bed excited to go to work every morning don’t just have jobs that turn their passions into paychecks. They have jobs where they also can lose themselves for hours in the flow of meaningful work. This intersection of joy, money, and flow is what Guillebeau will help you find in this book. Through inspiring stories of those who have successfully landed their dream career, as well as actionable tools, exercises, and thought experiments, he’ll guide you through today’s vast menu of career options to discover the work perfectly suited to your unique interests, skills, and experiences. You’ll learn how to: • Hack the job of your dreams within a traditional organization by making it work for you • Find not only your ideal work but also your ideal working conditions • Create plans that will allow you to take smarter career risks and “beat the house” every time • Start a profitable “side hustle” and earn extra cash on top of your primary stream of income • Escape the prison of working for someone else and build a mini-empire as an entrepreneur • Become a rock star at any creative endeavor by creating a loyal base of fans and followers Whichever path you choose, this book will show you how to find that one job or career that feels so right, it’s like you were born to do it.

What do you do when you have to give up the person you love most? Thirty-five-year-old Miranda is not an impulsive person. She’s been at Domestic Goddess magazine for eight years, she has great friends, and she’s finally moving on after a breakup. Having a baby isn’t even on her radar—until the day she discovers an abandoned newborn on the platform of a Brooklyn subway station. Rushing the little girl to the closest police station, Miranda hopes and prays she’ll be all right and that a loving family will step forward to take her. Yet Miranda can’t seem to get the baby off her mind and keeps coming up with excuses to go check on her, until finally a family court judge asks whether she’d like to be the baby’s foster parent—maybe even adopt her. To her own surprise, Miranda jumps at the chance. But nothing could have prepared her for the ecstasy of new-mother love—or the heartbreak she faces when the baby’s father surfaces....

It is important to thoughtfully choose our careers but for many reasons many of us take a job because it is the first decent offer that comes along. Over time we are content to move up in salary, rather than personal satisfaction. We have no choice, as we have bills to pay and a family to support. But Orison Swett Marden says that we must not settle. We have a personal obligation to find our own happiness and success. In fact, the world demands that we experience fulfillment for ourselves as our happiness also affects those around us. In this book, Discovering Yourself Marden goes through the preparation and pursuit of fulfillment and includes the life stories of successful men and women as told by themselves. Chapters include: • The Victorious Attitude • According to Thy Faith • Doubt the Traitor • Making Dreams Come True • Making Yourself a Prosperity Magnet W • Where Your Supply Is • You Are Headed Toward Your Ideal • Education Under Difficulties • Misfit Occupations • This One Thing I Do • Enthusiasm • Doing Everything To A Finish • The Help Yourself Society • How to Find Oneself • Life Stories of Successful Men and WomenTold By Themselves ,p>“To be a conqueror in appearance, in one’s bearing, is the first step toward success. It inspires confidence in others as well as in one self. Walk, talk and act as though you were a somebody, and you are more likely to become such. Move about among others as though you believe you are a person of importance. Let victory speak from your face and express itself in your manner. Carry yourself like one who is conscious of having a splendid mission, a grand aim in life. Radiate a hopeful, expectant, cheerful atmosphere. In other words, be a good advertisement of the winner you are trying to be.”

Finding one's purpose in life and fulfilling it is a desire we all share. Yet many of us are living the lives and dreams imposed upon us by our family, friends and society. Once we understand the fears, frustrations and loyalties that sabotage our dreams and best efforts at personal growth, we can free ourselves from doubt and defeat and find out what we really want to do with our lives. Who You Were Meant to Be explains how to use our inner guidance to find our most personal and energizing life purpose. Writing in a friendly, active style, psychologist Lindsay Gibson shows us how to get free of the misguided guilt and loyalty that confuse loving others with sacrificing oneself. We can undo self-defeating ideas and claim our right to happiness and autonomy in our life choices. Thanks to the author's clinical background, this book goes deep enough to address feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, and the common fears that can bring self-actualization to a standstill. Dr. Gibson offers a unique blend of inspiration and pragmatic advice to people who have been reluctant to put themselves first in their own lives. Who You Were Meant to Be provides a practical road map out of old habits and shows how to forge a new path on which each of us can discover or recover our true purposes in life and become the people we want to be.
