What better ever proof of a miracle, of the value of family support, of the power of faith, of the hand of God, of the unpredictability of life. All in all it's a wonderful piece to read. What's more, you make readers care, because the woman and her family, including the convincing and articulate narrator, Dr. Henry, become real people in readers' minds, people they know well enough to worry about, to cheer for. I came to feel, thanks to Dr. Joel Hilaire's sharp and rich writing, that I was one of those people, close to the family, involved in every down-and-up event. To my mind you achieved exactly what you were after with this extensive true-to-life story."-Lou Fisher, from Long Ridge Writers Group

Download and read online The Other Side of the Desk in PDF and EPUB Patricia Rowe was born and raised in Illinois. She graduated from a two-room country school. In 1955, she surrendered her heart to Jesus Christ. In 1956, she received her B.S. Degree from Illinois State University. Patricia authored three "how to" books for teachers, having been published in 1968, 1970 and 1972, after receiving her M.S. Degree from University of Minnesota-Mankato. Patricia has taught a variety of "normal" to "special needs" students in public and private schools. She has also taught ladies and children in Sunday school and other meetings. Presently she lives in Pennsylvania, retired, yet teaching Bible groups. Her concern is that all children receive the education they need at school, so they may thrive in adult life. She has enjoyed teaching, believing in that God made her to be a teacher. These stories are only representative of many days in school, the memories that could be shared. Her life has touched and enriched many thankful students and families. Matthew 6:33, "But seek ye first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added unto you." KJV has been her life verse. This book relates memorable moments that an experienced teacher shared with her students during her lifetime career. Days in school can be happy, sad, sometimes funny or exasperating, but never boring. Patricia sees teaching as a serious and important opportunity to assist students to build productive lives. Her passion for the work becomes evident as the tales unfold. Perhaps, the stories from the classroom will encourage the readers to actively hold their school systems accountable for the important job of building happy and useful citizens.

Then she meets Helix, a boy with a big heart who slowly helps her uncover a terrible secret about the Island: Sooner or later, those who do not fit disappear, and they don’t ever come back.

Download and read online The Other Side of Impossible in PDF and EPUB You’re faced with a difficult health condition. You have exhausted medicine’s answers. What do you do? In The Other Side of Impossible, Susannah Meadows tells the real-life stories of seven families who were determined to solve the unsolvable. Their adventures take us to the outer frontiers of medical science and cutting-edge complementary therapies, as Meadows explores research into the mind’s potential to heal the body, the possible role food may play in reversing disease, the power of agency, perseverance, and hope—and more. When journalist Susannah Meadows noticed her three-year-old son, Shepherd, shying away from soccer practice, she had no idea it was the first sign of juvenile idiopathic arthritis. The diagnosis was the first step of a long journey, physically painful for Shepherd and emotionally wrenching for Susannah and her family. But they pressed on, and using a combination of traditional and complementary medicine they beat the disease, and the odds. Meadows chronicles her own story, and the stories of families like hers who persisted when traditional medicine alone wasn’t enough. One boy who has severe food allergies undergoes an unconventional therapy and is soon eating everything. An organic farmer in Washington State tries to solve the puzzle of her daughter’s epileptic seizures. A physician with MS creates her own combination of treatments and goes from a wheelchair to riding a bike again. A child diagnosed with ADHD refuses to take medication and instead improves his life, and the life of his family, after changing his diet. Other families take on rheumatoid arthritis and autistic behaviors. Meadows takes you into the lives of remarkable people, their heartbreaks and triumphs. She includes new information about traditional and nontraditional medicine and the latest science on how the health of our gut bacteria is connected to wellness—and how the right foods play a key role in helping this microscopic population thrive. She also talks with scientists who study the traits and circumstances that may make some people keep going when others feel helpless. These researchers are illuminating the psychology of healing—how the mind, and asserting control over your body and health, can play a part in recovery. Fascinating, moving, and profoundly inspiring, The Other Side of Impossible gives us people driven by love, desperation, and astonishing resolve—a community of the defiant who share an extraordinary talent for hope and for fighting the battle for healing in today’s world and tomorrow’s. Advance praise for The Other Side of Impossible “In this affecting and illuminating book, Susannah Meadows emerges as the kind of sound, sensible, and invaluable friend you want by your side when medical disaster strikes. She brings a strong grasp of science, a writerly sensibility, and a good heart to the difficult subject of the present and future of healthcare. If you love someone, read The Other Side of Impossible.”—Jon Meacham “I laughed out loud more than once, choked up more than twice, and generally marveled at the lovely humanity and sharp mind at work. This extremely useful guide to never giving up is journalism at its most responsible, intelligent, and compassionate.”—Kelly Corrigan “The Other Side of Impossible is an amazing book—insightful, compassionate, and quite possibly life-changing.”—Curtis Sittenfeld

Download and read online The Other Side of Assimilation in PDF and EPUB The immigration patterns of the last three decades have profoundly changed nearly every aspect of life in the United States. What do those changes mean for the most established Americans—those whose families have been in the country for multiple generations? The Other Side of Assimilation shows that assimilation is not a one-way street. Jiménez explains how established Americans undergo their own assimilation in response to profound immigration-driven ethnic, racial, political, economic, and cultural shifts. Drawing on interviews with a race and class spectrum of established Americans in three different Silicon Valley cities, The Other Side of Assimilation illuminates how established Americans make sense of their experiences in immigrant-rich environments, in work, school, public interactions, romantic life, and leisure activities. With lucid prose, Jiménez reveals how immigration not only changes the American cityscape but also reshapes the United States by altering the outlooks and identities of its most established citizens.

Amazing!” Carlo Tornatore, MD, Vice Chairman, Department of Neurology Georgetown University Hospital, Washington, DC Vincent F. Macaluso was in medical school when he got the news: he had multiple sclerosis. He soon learned that almost a half million people in the United States have multiple sclerosis—and millions more worldwide. Many have obvious symptoms, such as trouble with walking, balance, and coordination, but the most insidious aspect of the disease is how it affects the mind. Macaluso shares insights from his vantage point as a doctor and an MS patient, helping his peers understand symptoms they may not grasp and offering wisdom for those who live with the disease. Learn how to • anticipate and overcome problems concentrating; • manage swirling emotions; • understand MS from a neurological standpoint; • preserve and continue to enjoy an active sex life; and • prevent the disease from ruining family life. Laced with humor and filled with diagrams and the author’s own recollections about how he’s kept MS from controlling his life, this account is essential reading for doctors, patients, and anyone who has an MSer in his or her life.
