Book Summary: Now a New York Times bestseller, in Ten Years Later, Today show coanchor Hoda Kotb tells the incredible stories of people who, when faced with impossibly challenging or tragic life situations, persevere—and even thrive—and asks, What if you, facing a game-changing event or decision right now, could see ten years into the future? New York Times bestselling author Hoda Kotb examines game-changing moments experienced by six different people—then revisits those people a decade later. From a mother of two who struggles with an abusive relationship, to a civilian hero of 9/11 who suffers tremendous personal loss in the wake of the terrorist attacks: the harrowing obstacles they faced shook them to their core, but each of these people found the strength to take the first step in a journey that changed their lives for the better. In these beautiful, astonishing, and life-affirming stories, Hoda reveals how adversity can unleash our best qualities: resilience, perseverance, gratitude, empathy, and creativity. This book will show you how to believe in the future, no matter how dark the present, and inspire you to take the first step in your own journey of personal growth.

Book Summary: Hoda is a memoir of lessons Kotb has learned along her journey, from breast cancer survivor to Today show anchor. She’s just like the rest of us: overstuffed purse, always losing keys, high-maintenance hair, snack guilt after an evening binge. But she’s something different, too. Hoda Kotb grew up in two cultures—one where summers meant playing at the foot of the ancient pyramids and another where she had to meet her junior prom date at the local 7-Eleven to spare them both the wrath of her conservative Egyptian parents. She’s traveled the globe for network television, smuggling videotapes in her shoes and stepping along roads riddled with land mines. She’s weathered the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, and a personal Category 5 as well: divorce and breast cancer in the same year. And if that’s not scary enough, she then began cohosting the fourth hour of Today with Kathie Lee Gifford. (Oh, c’mon, KLG! That’s funny...put down the huge pour of Chardonnay and laugh with us.) Hoda reads just like Kotb herself—light, funny, positive, and positively inspiring.

Book Summary: From New York Times bestselling author and beloved Today show coanchor Hoda Kotb, an “inspirational page-turner” (Daily News, New York) about people who find their life’s purpose in unexpected ways, often surprising themselves and their loved ones. Are you where you belong? Many of us wonder. We float around in the half-empty glass, gaze out into the world of possibilities, and wonder if we should get off our raft and climb out. Maybe even today you asked yourself: Is it too late to do that thing that made me so happy when I was young? Could what matters most to me finally be the center of my life? Can I really trust this yearning voice in my head and longing in my heart? In Where We Belong, Hoda Kotb explores the challenging journeys of people who found their true calling in life by following their passions, their gut, and their heart. The compelling stories include an investment banker who became a minister after years of working on Wall Street, a young woman from a blue-collar background whose passion took her to Harvard Medical School, a high-powered PR executive who was drawn to a unique close-knit community, and a once “no-kids” guy who now helps children all over the world. Hoda also interviews celebrities, such as producer Mark Burnett and actress/producer Roma Downey, comedienne Margaret Cho, and former boxer Laila Ali, all who’ve pursued their passions to fulfill their dreams. The stories told provide examples of perseverance, self-reflection, and new attitudes on life making Where We Belong a motivating guide to finding the right path for your personal journey.

Book Summary: A compilation of quotations and proverbs from the most enlightened, intelligent, and forward thinkers in human history regarding the most important aspects of life. Compiled and arranged to give the reader a clear direction in their life based on their internal needs, wants, and desires. While no one on Earth is special, everyone is unique. Nobody past, present, or future has gone through or has had the same thoughts and experiences as you, nor will they in the future. As a result, you see the world in a completely unique way. Studying these volumes will guide your mind's eye in distinguishing the most significant passages to you and your being as well as reaffirming or contradicting what you already know and believe, by the wisest people throughout history. Out of the thousands of quotes and proverbs within these volumes, your personality will subconsciously pick out the most relevant quotes and proverbs to you and you alone. It would be a mistake to concentrate on only one topic because all the subjects are connected to aid you in reaching your own epiphany. Many of the most profound quotes and proverbs are recorded under various topics throughout the book. Though you may only be interested in "Success & Failure," many of the quotes and proverbs attributed to success can also be found under "Leadership," "Attitude," or even "Life, Purpose, & Growth," for example. The aim of this huge collection of human wisdom is enlightenment: to assist the readers in realizing what is truly important in life, as well as to find their true self; to shatter the illusions that everyone builds for themselves through false assumptions and stereotypes; to find their true inner being; to find purpose; and, most importantly, to discover what makes them and them alone happy. To receive the full benefit of these volumes and to fully immerse yourself in self-discovery, you must commit to studying the entire collection. If you only want to scratch the surface of what is important in life, then limit yourself to a single volume. But if you want to master your true purpose, then study all four volumes.

Book Summary: GOD EMERGENCY ROOM is a series of work books that God has used me as a vessel to share my testimony with all of you of all ages the journey He took me on to bring me to His LOVE. After a lifetime of rebellion and confusion to the truths of what this life is all about and what we are meant for in this life. I was forced through bad choices, lack of wisdom, fear, pain, anxiety and debilitating panic to find the answer. GODS EMERGENCY ROOM is not a self-help book nor is it a story about one persons life. Why? Because you and I are not unique in this rebellion and confusion and if you have come far enough as to be reading this at this moment, you have come far enough in your own journey to realize, that you are not capable of helping yourself ALONE. LIFE is full of mountains and obstacles that can be a challenge to all of us and we do not have the answers, but God does! He is here ready willing and able to handle any mountain or obstacle that you will encounter as he says in His word, He is the great physician! Gods desire is to care for you and give you His grace of direction for your life no matter what you have done or where you are. His prescription for all of us is: Let him show you what your life is about and how it can truly be, but most of all how it does not have to be. Why Does This Life Hurt? So Much! Is only the first visit to GODS EMERGENCY ROOM and you may go kicking and biting but if you are reading this God is already offering you the grace for Him to be your physician.

I was hit by a car, severely burned on the palms of my hands, and literally thrown out of a car into a busy intersection. Somehow I never sustained any injuries. I had many questions as this divine protection and provision continued throughout my life. Little did I know that what I endured was part of a plan for me to know what I have now learned, and share this with all who will listen. These adventures with our heavenly Father not only gave me answers to my questions but also much understanding of our Father and His works. This book tells about my adventures and part of what I learned. It is the beginning of a series of books containing what our Father has taught me. It was not easy for me to hear. It was not easy for me to write. It is always difficult for us to listen to Him. All He is asking now is for us to listen to what He has told us from the beginning and respond.

Book Summary: “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” — 3 John 2 (NKJV) It has been a dream of mine to prosper financially using biblical principles. I prayed about it, and then one morning, the Lord told me that it was time and that He would teach me. He instructed me to wait on Him every morning and to write down the things He taught me. I followed His instructions, guidance, and wisdom, writing it all down for a full year. This book is the result of our time together. To my surprise, this became a book of many books! The Lord would guide me to a specific book, teach me from it, and then move on to the next book. It was totally supernatural! As I followed the leading of the Lord, it became clear to me that God was taking me on a year-long journey of prospering my soul, which in turn would influence my financial situation. I learnt that I could not prosper in any given area unless my soul prospered in that area too, hence the book’s title. This book takes many twists and turns, and even has a few surprises. Did I reach my goal of financial prosperity? You have to read it to find out!

Book Summary: Despite a wealth of literature on the "missional church" and "missional living," few resources help Christians and churches think through what it means to be disciples of Jesus Christ and what specific practices help cultivate lives of discipleship. Written from, with, and for the church, Pilgrim Practices: Discipleship for a Missional Church introduces Christian practices from the Letter of James to help guide Christians and churches in their journey of discipleship. This book frames discipleship in a way that has been largely abandoned in modern congregational literature, as fundamentally an issue of identity--an identity that is necessarily formed and practiced in and with the church community. It is a lifestyle that cannot be lived on one's own. Discipleship ultimately means engaging with others on a journey of faith sustained and cultivated through certain practices--pilgrim practices. The practices examined in this book develop and direct the risky pilgrim journey of Christians, transforming pilgrims into disciples--as the Body of Christ--who participate with God in God's mission in the world. In this time of transient identities, individualist impulses, and fleeting commitments, this book offers specific practices to help Christians form their identity as disciples and to help Christian communities live their calling as the pilgrim Body of Christ in the world.

But a funny thing happened when he took a couple of risks with his writing: he got away with it. And then he took his gloves off for good.Within a year, his “blog” was elevated to a “column” and began showing up in mainstream publications throughout Indiana. After publishing more than a hundred installments, a group of recurring political and cultural themes began to emerge. From RFRA and guns, to the economy and parenting, Leppert takes a provocative view on all of it.Contrary To Popular Belief gives the real reasons why and from where his opinions are based. It is a chronicle being released purposely in summer of 2016 for readers to use as a guide during a historically chaotic political season.

Book Summary: In this volume, the powerful voices of Gulag survivors become accessible to English-speaking audiences for the first time through oral histories, rather than written memoirs. It brings together interviews with men and women, members of the working class and intelligentsia, people who live in the major cities and those from the "provinces," and from an array of corrective hard labor camps and prisons across the former Soviet Union. Its aims are threefold: 1) to give a sense of the range of the Gulag experience and its consequences for Russian society; 2) to make the Gulag relevant to English-speaking readers by offering comparisons to historical catastrophes they are likely to know more about, such as the Holocaust; and 3) to discuss issues of oral history and memory in the cultural context of Soviet and post-Soviet society.

Book Summary: This is an intensely readable look at the the Christian Church down the ages, providing powerful messages for our own times. Many church members know little or nothing about the story of Christianity between the New Testament period and today. They therefore may not realise how much they have been influenced by traditions developed during that time. These can have both a negative and positive benefit. Negative, because ‘those who forget history are condemned to relive it’. Most of the mistakes we make and errors we fall into have happened before and we can learn from our forefathers to avoid them. Positive, because we have such a rich heritage it would be folly to ignore. We can draw inspiration and examples from the spiritual giants who went before us and, after all, we can look forward to meeting them personally in glory.

Book Summary: Negotiation is stuck—it's time for something new. Almost everything is negotiable, almost every interaction a negotiation. And in no field is this clearer than in business, where every day we need to work with others to get things done. But when we have real differences, is a win-win always possible? Or must every negotiation be a zero-sum game, with a winner and a loser? Over the last half century, these two opposing philosophies have ruled the field: the win-lose, tooth-and-nail battle plan identified with training guru Chester Karrass, and the win-win, "principled" creed of Getting to Yes, by Harvard's Roger Fisher and William Ury. Both were game changers in their day, but neither approach fully meets the challenges of today's volatile, disruptive, ultracompetitive business environment, where strategic problem-solving is a crucial skill, and time is of the essence. In Creative Conflict, negotiation experts Bill Sanders and Frank Mobus provide something new. They use a dynamic, dialectical approach to show that negotiations are driven by competition and cooperation at the same time, counterintuitively revealing that conflict is at the core of every negotiation. When we tiptoe around conflict, we negotiate in a half-hearted way that limits our results. Creative negotiators probe and push until they hit a wall of disagreement, then figure out how to get past it. The authors construct a simple framework based on three basic but distinct contexts: bargaining, dealmaking, and relationship building. They then instruct readers on how to skillfully pursue their own interests while simultaneously seeking ways to expand a deal's scope and value for both sides. Based on the popular Mobus Creative Negotiating seminars and the authors' experience working with Fortune 500 companies, Creative Conflict is a business book written for businesspeople, by businesspeople. It's your go-to guide for boosting your skills and confidence as a negotiator—and learning to strike a better deal.
