"Alejandro Chaban, creator of the Yes You Can! diet plan, shares his seven essential steps for shedding emotional weight in this deeply personal and inspirational account of how he mastered his thoughts to heal his soul. Before Alejandro Chaban became a health and wellness icon and one of the most trusted Hispanic celebrities, he had an unhealthy relationship with food and his self-image. He suffered from obesity as a child which led to ruthless bullying and, subsequently, anorexia and bulimia.

With this revelation came a life-altering shift in his mindset. He realized that he needed to make the change for himself and not for anyone else. From that day forward, a weight was lifted from his mind, and that made all the difference. In Think Skinny, Feel Fit, Alejandro shares the seven steps that were essential in helping him master his mind and lose emotional weight. These steps, grounded in positive thinking and self-commitment, have helped countless people to start living happier, healthier lives.

"A magnificent book, bursting with profound spiritual insights, from a man who has quickly become one of the greatest spiritual teachers of our time." --James Martin, SJ, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage In the year since he was elected, Pope Francis’s simple message of mercy, service, and renewal has spread to every corner of the world. Through his gentle demeanor, selfless actions, and welcoming call for service to others, Pope Francis has captured the attention of a world longing for an authentic message of hope—we want to hear what he has to say. Collected from Pope Francis’s speeches, homilies, and papers presented during the first year of his papacy, The Church of Mercy is the first Vatican-authorized book detailing his vision for the Catholic Church. From how to be citizens of the world to answering God’s call for evangelization, Pope Francis's deep wisdom reminds us that the Church must move beyond its own walls and joyfully bring God's mercy wherever suffering, division, or injustice exists. Named TIME Magazine’s 2013 “Person of the Year,” Pope Francis is helping the Church continue toward an authentic Christianity that is faithful to the Gospel and resonant with the world’s greatest needs. The Church of Mercy encourages each of us to ignite the flame within to help share the light of Christ and revitalize the Church.

13 Things Mentally Strong Parents Don t Do

Author: Amy Morin
Publisher: HarperCollins
ISBN: 9780062565747
Release Date: 2017-09-19
Genre: Family & Relationships

The author of the international bestseller 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do turns her focus to parents, teaching them how to raise mentally strong and resilient children. Do today’s children lack the flexibility and mental strength they need to cope with life’s challenges in an increasingly complicated and scary world? With safe spaces and trigger warnings designed to "protect" kids, many adults worry that children don’t have the resilience to reach their greatest potential. Amy Morin, the author who identified the characteristics that mentally strong people share, now gives adults—parents, teachers, and other mentors—the tools they need to become mental strength trainers. While other books tell parents what to do, Amy teaches parents what "not to do," which she says is equally important in raising mentally strong youngsters. As a foster parent, psychotherapist, and expert in family and teen therapy, Amy has witnessed first-hand what works. When children have the skills they need to deal with challenges in their everyday lives, they can flourish socially, emotionally, behaviorally, and academically. With appropriate support, encouragement, and guidance from adults, kids grow stronger and become better. Drawing on her experiences and insight, 13 Things Mentally Strong Parents Don’t Do combines case studies, practical tips, specific strategies, and concrete and proven exercises to help children of all ages—from preschoolers to teenagers—build mental muscle and develop into healthy, strong adults.
