BOOK: HOPE Rising
Hope Rising is a clarion call to apply the science of hope in daily life and overcome the trauma, adversity, and struggles everyone must face. Hope is the most predictive indicator of well-being in a person’s life in all the research done on trauma, illness, and resiliency. Based on nearly 2,000 published studies about hope, including their own research, Casey Gwinn and Chan Hellman call for rising hope to be the focus not only in personal lives, but in public policy in education, business, social services, and every other part of society. Hope is measurable. Hope is malleable. Hope changes lives.

BOOK: You Think You Know, But You Don’t
Spiritual, emotional, and sexual abuse, including marital rape, is often hidden and even excused within Christian marriages.  We don’t talk about it, so victims are often left without a clue that it’s happening and what to call it.  Perpetrators use the Bible to spiritually control, trap, and confuse their partners with scripture, embedding an evil twist to manipulate and brainwash them.  The end result is a devastating life of domestic abuse. You may think you know what abuse looks like, but you may have no idea it’s right under your nose.  This is a story of how it happens, what it looks like, and how you can begin to overcome and take your power back.  This inspiring story will hopefully empower you to get out or help someone else get out.  Don’t let fear control you – because freedom lies on the other side of fear!
