From the outside, Craig Jutila appeared to have the ultimate success in ministry--but at home, it was another story. The principles in From Hectic to Healthy, which will become every leader's guide to work-life balance, are the hard-won result of Craig's brush with total burnout. Many pastors and other leaders buy the lie that they are just "in a busy season," rather than living a hectic, unsustainable way of life that will lead eventually to burnout. But it's never too late to move from hectic to healthy! Using Craig and Mary's easy-to-remember acrostics, readers will identify the roots of their busyness, or SPIN, learn to STOP, then set a healthy PACE, and continue to WALK.
Finalist for the William Saroyan International Prize for Writing From the bestselling author of A Mountain of Crumbs, a “brilliant and illuminating” (BookPage) portrait of mothers and daughters that reaches from Cold War Russia to modern-day New Jersey to show how the ties that hold you back can also teach you how to start over. Elena Gorokhova moves to the US in her twenties to join her American husband and to break away from her mother, a mirror image of her Soviet Motherland: overbearing, protective, and difficult to leave. Before the birth of Elena’s daughter, her mother comes to help care for the baby and stays for twenty-four years, ordering everyone to eat soup and wear a hat, just as she did in Leningrad. Russian Tattoo is the story of a unique balancing act and a family struggle: three generations of strong women with very different cultural values, all living under the same roof and battling for control. As Elena strives to bridge the gap between the cultures of her past and present and find her place in a new world, she comes to love the fierce resilience of her Soviet mother when she recognizes it in her American daughter. “Gorokhova writes about her life with a novelist’s gift,” says The New York Times, and her second memoir is filled with empathy, insight, and humor.
