This remarkable story of survival—with determination, humor, and joy—“can show you how to turn a curse into a blessing” (Bernie Siegel, MD).
 
Life is good for Joyce and Kevin—traveling, having fun with friends, holding down a successful Wall Street career, building their dream home and planning a big family. Then, in what feels like an instant, the young couple’s dream life shatters, when Kevin is paralyzed after a brain hemorrhage and they are both diagnosed with late-stage cancers.
 
At thirty-five years old, they are devastated to learn there is little hope they will see their baby's next birthday. Take an amazing and inspiring journey with this young couple who refuse to accept the grim diagnosis when their world comes crashing down around them. Instead, they choose to live. And together, miraculously, they beat all the odds. Kevin is walking again, and they both are cancer free ten years later.
 
Discover the keys for your own health and well-being. By healing the body from the inside out, you can live a life brimming with physical, emotional, and spiritual health. Awaken to a world that few know even exists—and where anything is possible.

Can you imagine being in high school or college and suddenly learning you have cancer? You thought you had a lifetime ahead of you and the whole world at your feet, but suddenly you're told... maybe not. How would you cope?

That's the question the twenty young people in this book had to answer when they were diagnosed with childhood cancer. Perseverance tells of their trials and tribulations, of their triumphs, and of the unique challenges that day-to-day college life brings them. Perseverance also provides an intimate look at the lives and journeys of these young people and how their courage and strength have affected the lives of others.

These honest, first-person accounts lend amazing depth to the inspiring stories of these young men and women. Inside, you'll meet Zac York, who tells of climbing Mount Whitney—on crutches—after battling brain cancer. You'll meet Alex Oden, who—just days after brain surgery—gave his 8th grade peers a graduation speech called "A Day Well Spent," in which he challenged them to make a difference in just one day. You'll meet Kristen Jones, who, while battling leukemia, was able to pass the MCAT and pursue her dream of becoming a pediatric oncologist.

Twenty unique and fascinating stories, with one common theme: perseverance. The stories of these heroes demonstrate how anyone can learn to live with energy and passion, regardless of the obstacles to be faced, and will remind us all that now is everything.

Tayler was the epitome of life. She was my life, and in March 2009, she was diagnosed with leukemia, dying in April 2009 from sepsis. With my faith so weak, I struggled, wondering How does a loving God take such a precious child and allow this to happen? Throughout my journey, God revealed his God Kisses to me through dreams, visitations, visions, and signs, showing me God is real and heaven is for real. Tayler is alive, and we will be reunited in heaven. I see now the beauty coming out of these ashes, praise God!

God Kisses takes the reader on a vivid journey of a mother who is forced to confront the sudden death of her precious daughter. In her beautifully written words, I experienced her full surrender to the devastating pain this loss brought. As the book unfolds, so does her slow growing awareness of God, and a deeper appreciation for every day as a day fill with hope.
Betsy Godbold, executive pastor for care and spiritual formation of Whites Chapel United Methodist Church of Southlake, Texas

God Kisses is the gripping and painful story of one familys journey to the brink and back. Surrounded by the silence and emptiness that cripple most after the loss of a child, Reynolds offers a vulnerable story of hope. Through the darkness of grief and doubt, she reminds us of the power of faith and the need to rediscover the true purpose of our lives: to kiss and be kissed by the Almighty.
Dr. Todd Renner, teaching pastor and provost of Whites Chapel United Methodist Church of Southlake, Texas

God Kisses is a must read for any parent dealing with the loss of a child. This book gives insight to the spiritual world from the temporal world through encounters with her heavenly daughter. Ginger Reynolds, through her raw emotions, takes the reader on a journey of proving just how real heaven is and how life continues after death.

From acclaimed author Dr. Jason Fung, a revolutionary guide to reversing diabetes.

Dr. Jason Fung forever changed the way we think about obesity with his best-selling book, The Obesity Code. Now he has set out to do the same for type 2 diabetes.

Today, most doctors, dietitians, and even diabetes specialists consider type 2 diabetes to be a chronic and progressive disease—a life sentence with no possibility of parole. But the truth, as Dr. Fung reveals in this paradigm-shifting book, is that type 2 diabetes is reversible. Writing with clear, persuasive language, he explains why conventional treatments that rely on insulin or other blood-glucose-lowering drugs can actually exacerbate the problem, leading to significant weight gain and even heart disease. The only way to treat type 2 diabetes effectively, he argues, is proper dieting and intermittent fasting—not medication.
