Courageous Gentleness: Following Christ?s Example of Restrained Strength
by Mary Ann FroehlichSearch for Mary Ann Froehlich
$0.01 new/used

Am I gentle? It?s not a question we typically stop to ask ourselves. But God cares about the answer. As author Mary Ann Froehlich points out, gentleness is a fruit of the Holy Spirit that is supposed to mark the words and actions of every Christian. And as Scripture clearly indicates, it is not an absence of strength or determination. Courageous Gentleness steers us to evaluate our lives through the lens of the Bible and consider practical ways that gentleness speaks to a watching world. Cultivating it in our lives can transform relationships with family members, neighbors, coworkers, and even enemies.

The Allure of Gentleness: Defending the Faith in the Manner of Jesus
by Dallas WillardSearch for Dallas Willard
$13.56 new/used

The revered Christian author whose bestselling classics include The Divine Conspiracy and The Spirit of the Disciplines provides a new model for how we can present the Christian faith to others.

When Christians share their faith, they often appeal to reason, logic, and the truth of doctrine. But these tactics often are not effective. A better approach to spread Christ?s word, Dallas Willard suggests, is to use the example of our own lives. To demonstrate Jesus?s message, we must be transformed people living out a life reflective of Jesus himself, a life of love, humility, and gentleness.

This beautiful model of life?this allure of gentleness?Willard argues, is the foundation for making the most compelling argument for Christianity, one that will convince others that there is something special about Christianity and the Jesus we follow.

One night over dinner at the tender age of five, she was telling her family about a man she had seen in her room the night before. Her father informed her that this was not just any man, but her grandfather who had died some thirty years earlier. These visits from the other side became the norm in the coming years. She soon learned her grandfather had the gift of being a psychic/medium and that they would share this gift. In A Bang into Gentleness, Heather discusses how she was introduced and gradually developed her intuition and ability to connect with spirits on the other side. She talks about following her own path to becoming a medium, intuitive counselor, and reiki master. Heather's journey was not always an easy one, and this book takes the reader through the ups and downs of growing up psychic, and reaching her own enlightenment; learning about mindfulness, compassion, and appreciation, and most importantly finding the divine power within.

To All Gentleness: William Carlos Williams, The Doctor Poet
by Neil BaldwinSearch for Neil Baldwin
$4.19 new/used

Published to coincide with the 125th anniversary of William Carlos Williams' birth, Neil Baldwin?s thoughtful biography captures the rich life of the preeminent poet who was also a beloved country doctor. Baldwin writes movingly of the small-town New Jersey folk who came to see Dr. Williams in his daily professional routine. He likewise details the prolific writer?s complex nightlife within the Bohemian circles of Greenwich Village and the long and loving friendships he shared with literary superstars such as Ezra Pound and Hilda Doolittle. Based on Baldwin?s years of study cataloging the Williams archives at SUNY/Buffalo and at Yale — more than 20,000 sheets and rough drafts for poems, short stories, novels, plays, and Williams? ambitious epic poem, "Paterson," — To All Gentleness presents a striking portrait of a man who managed to live two important lives, distinct yet driven by the same impulses of creativity and caring.

Go Only As Fast As Your Slowest Part Feels Safe To Go: Tales To Kindle Gentleness and Compassion For Our Exhausted Selves
by Robyn L Posin Ph.D.Search for Robyn L Posin Ph.D.
$13.20 new/used

In this collection of emotionally uncensored tales, the author ? a licensed psychologist ? shares lessons learned from a life dedicated to healing from the ravages of hyper-self-criticism and super-achievement that plague most of us, particularly women. The tales are teaching stories through which the reader vicariously experiences ways to move from self-reproach to self-nurture and self-acceptance. The lessons of radical self-care, self-compassion and self love in these pages help one to kindle an inner dialog that can be life changing. The stories may open readers to a more kind-hearted relationship with themselves. They repeatedly remind readers to go more slowly, to honor and make safe space to feel all their feelings, to remember that rest is a sacred act and to know that it is possible to compassionately embrace all the ways that they are: ever-evolving, warts and all, bumbling works-in-progress always doing the best they can with the consciousness available to them in the moment.
