Emotional Agility

Drawing on more than twenty years of academic research, consulting, and her own experiences overcoming adversity, Susan David PhD, a psychologist and faculty member at Harvard Medical School, has pioneered a new way to enable us to make peace with our inner self, achieve our most valued goals, make real change, and live life to the fullest.

Emotional Agility describes a new way of living and relating to yourself and the world around you. Become aware of your true nature, learn to face your emotions with acceptance and generosity, act according to your deepest values, and flourish.



In this best-seller, world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck explains why it's not just our abilities and talent that bring us success - but whether we approach them with a fixed or growth mindset. Dweck makes clear why praising intelligence and ability doesn't foster self-esteem and accomplishment, but may actually jeopardize success. With the right mindset, we can motivate our kids and help them to raise their grades, as well as reach our own goals-personal and professional. Dweck reveals what all great parents, teachers, CEOs, and athletes already know: how a simple idea about the brain can create a love of learning and a resilience that is the basis of great accomplishment in every area.

Get Out of That Pit: Straight Talk about God’s Deliverance

Beth's journey out of the pit has been heart-rending. But from this and the poetic expressions of Psalm 40 has come the reward: a new song for her soul, given by her Savior and offered to you in Get Out of That Pit. This is Beth's most stirring message yet of the sheer hope, utter deliverance, and complete and glorious freedom of God. As a best-selling author and Bible teacher, Moore has opened the riches of Scripture to millions and longs for you also to be free to know the Love and Presence that are better than life and the power of God's Word that defies all darkness.
