The Simple Life - The New American Dream
Author: Marlene C. Bertrand
Category: Biography & Autobiography
On August 25, 2016, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that from January 2013 through December 2015, there were 3.2 million workers displaced from jobs they had held for at least 3 years. Losing a job is distressing. Not being able to find a replacement job can be devastating and there is no comfort in knowing the number of people who share in your job loss position. The possibility of poverty becomes a “real” alternative and managing the transition is your only solution. This is a memoir. It is a true story that recalls the journey of Marlene Bertrand, a woman who once owned a small business, who once earned a six-figure income and lived the lifestyle of the American Dream. But, then in the year 2008 a new presidential regime was voted in. This new Commander-in-Chief charged in and changed the way of the world, making decisions without regard for the citizens who would be affected. These presidential decisions wrought havoc on the economy; consequently, these decisions destroyed the very lifestyle to which Marlene had become accustomed. After losing her job due to “Right-Sizing,” Marlene was unable to find gainful employment and rapidly went from living an upper-middle class lifestyle to living in poverty. It wasn’t easy, but Marlene is a positive thinker. When life gives her lemons, she makes lemonade. After making some adjustments in her mindset and behavior she is now living a simple life, sharing her struggles and solutions to help others transition to living a simple, yet sustainable lifestyle. Marlene not only talks about living with less income, she is living with less income. In “From Riches to Rags to Right-Sized Living,” Marlene shows you how to live with less money, yet still live a more abundant lifestyle.

Scheiß auf positives Denken sagt Mark Manson. Die ungeschönte Perspektive ist ihm lieber. Wenn etwas scheiße ist, dann ist es das eben. Und wenn man etwas nicht kann, dann sollte man dazu stehen. Nicht jeder kann in allem außergewöhnlich sein und das ist gut so. Wenn man seine Grenzen akzeptiert, findet man die Stärke, die man braucht. Denn es gibt so viele Dinge, auf die man im Gegenzug scheißen kann. Man muss nur herausfinden, welche das sind und wie man sie sich richtig am Arsch vorbeigehen lässt. So kann man sich dann auf die eigenen Stärken und die wichtigen Dinge besinnen und hat mehr Zeit, sein Potential gänzlich auszuschöpfen. Die subtile Kunst des darauf Scheißens verbindet unterhaltsame Geschichten und schonungslosen Humor mit hilfreichen Tipps für ein entspannteres und besseres Leben. Damit man seine Energie für sinnvolleres verwendet als für Dinge, die einem egal sein können.

Discipline For Modern Day Clergy
Author: M.C. Tolbert
THE SIMPLE LIFE is a “work of heart” created over several years, of one man’s self-examination about his commitment to Christian Ministry. Working closely with other clergy for thirty-eight years has given M.C. Tolbert a well versed understanding of the pitfalls for the men and women in ministry and the “little foxes” that spoil the vine. Richard Foster’s book, Celebration of Discipline, has served as a major inspiration for the discipline of this author, which has resulted in the completion of this work. This book is not for the “faint-of-heart clergy, but it will serve as an inspiration for those who sincerely wish to structure their ministries after Christ. The author’s desire is to see more clergy “set free” from the addiction and bondage of “gaining more.”

Finding Happiness Through Refocusing Your Priorities
Author: Bobby G. Muse Jr.
Are you happy? Are you living the life you've always dreamed about? If you are like most people, you're probably not overly excited about anything and don't know why. You're stuck in a rut, drifting aimlessly through life. How can this happen? It's simple. We live life haphazardly. We never take the time or make the effort to define what happiness means to us. We try this or that hoping that one day we land on the thing or things that will bring us happiness. However, true happiness is almost impossible to find through trial and error. True happiness comes through thoughtful evaluation of our lives by incorporating the things that give us satisfaction and meaning into the way we live our lives. Clearly identifying our priorities and freeing up resources to be used on the things that are most important to us are essential to finding real happiness. By refocusing our priorities and our limited resources on the people, activities, and things that give our lives meaning, we can find the happiness we are seeking.

Twelve Months of Baking and Living the Simple Life at the Smoke Signals Bakery
Author: Tara Jensen
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
A year in the life of Instagram bread-baking sensation Tara Jensen as she teaches readers how to bake bread and pies, build the perfect fire to cook with, and live a simple, satisfying life. Why do so many people make pilgrimages to Tara Jensen’s North Carolina Smoke Signals Bakery? Why do over a 100,000 people follow her Instagram feed @bakerhands? It’s because Tara bakes the most exquisite bread in the US, using a wood-fired oven that she tends with her own two hands. It could also be to learn how she makes her bubbly, deep-dish fruit pies or to see the crisp pizzas that are sometimes covered with fresh flowers. It could be something deeper: Tara Jensen has learned to live a simple life, close to the land that feeds her oven. In her first book, she shares her philosophy of simple living and her trove of recipes with others. A Baker’s Year takes readers month-by-month through the seasons at Smoke Signals for porridge and waffles in winter, crusty bread in spring, pies and pizza in the summer, and celebration cakes for end-of-the-year holidays. Along the way, Tara writes about how to live in a more peaceful world, shares stories from her own life, mourns romances lost, and celebrates the promise of a new relationship. Illustrated throughout with Tara's photographs and drawings, A Baker’s Year is a true American original destined to be a classic of cookbook shelves.
