Cuando Kate Bowler pierde 15 kilos de la nada y tiene constantes dolores de estómago, comienza una peregrinación en varios hospitales para averiguar qué le pasa. Solo al hacerle una resonancia magnética recibe el aterrador diagnóstico: etapa 4 de cáncer de colon. Kate Bowler disfrutaba una buena vida: profesora en una importante universidad de Estados Unidos, casada con el amor de su vida, con quien tiene un pequeño hijo. Un día comenzó a sentir dolores intensos y a perder peso hasta restarle 15 kilos a su cuerpo en pocas semanas. Los médicos daban vueltas al asunto y ella volvía a casa sin diagnóstico, sintiéndose cada vez peor. Por fin decide no salir del consultorio hasta que le digan qué sucede, una resonancia magnética después escucha las heladas palabras del doctor: cáncer de colon en etapa Contra todo pronóstico, Bowler no cae en la tristeza o la depresión (ella misma se declara una optimista incurable) y escribe un testimonio desgarrador, franco, pero sorprendentemente divertido. La autora hace énfasis en la idea de que no se debe vivir bajo la consigna de que todas las cosas suceden por algo. Cuando nos enfrentamos a una situación complicada como el cáncer, en la que no sabemos cómo actuar, lo esencial es aceptar la idea y continuar con nuestra vida de la manera más natural posible. Por ello Kate recomienda a las personas que tienen familiares, amigos o conocidos con una enfermedad que pudiera ser mortal, no adoptar una actitud de conmiseración o excesivamente compasiva, porque no habrá manera de fundirnos en la piel de esa persona y saber lo que está viviendo. Muchas de las frases que regularmente se emplean en este tipo de situaciones son las que deberían evitarse. Entre las que menciona la autora se encuentran: «Bueno, por lo menos...»; «En mi larga vida he aprendido...»; «Todo va a mejorar, te lo prometo»; «Dios necesitaba un ángel»; «No hay mal que por bien no venga»... Un libro cálido y personal para reflexionar sobre la vida y sobre la toma de decisiones. El cáncer llegó a su vida, ella decidió contar su experiencia.

In each of our lives we are faced with events that seem inexplicable, unjust, even cruel—events that can shatter our perception of the world, our understanding of ourselves, and our faith in a higher power. Friends and family members often offer comfort with “Everything happens for a reason”—a simple, common phrase with an unbearably elusive meaning. In Everything Happens for a Reason, psychotherapist Mira Kirshenbaum helps us understand the principles behind this frequently used phrase and provides us with tools to grasp its true meaning. According to Kirshenbaum, there is significance to each of the events in our lives. We all can discover meaning in what has happened to us—seeing such occurrences as gifts, lessons, or opportunities that we might not have been able to get any other way. Building on more than twenty-five years of clinical research, Kirshenbaum has developed tests to help readers decode the confusing or unfortunate events in their lives and find solace and strength in the positive outcomes that exist. Kirshenbaum offers ten universal reasons for the tragedies in our lives, among them letting go of fear, radically accepting ourselves, becoming a truly good person, finding forgiveness, and discovering our mission. While coming to terms with unexpected loss and disappointment is never easy, Everything Happens for a Reason empowers readers to embrace the positive and comprehend the specific message that is larger and more powerful than their grief.

Everything Happens For A Reason.....or does everything happen just by chance? is the sequel to Just By Chance....or does everything happen for a reason? At the end of Just By Chance, Finley and Gertrude Final at the It's All Down Hill From Here retirement home, are mourning the loss of Harry and Mandy Hanson. Finley and Gertrude envy the Hansons dying of natural causes, peacefully, and at the same time, and they set out to try and duplicate what they did. The task proves harder than they expect and funny things happen on the road to trying to accomplish what remains the last thing to do on their bucket list. While all this is transpiring, Finelope Final, the funeral home director, spends her time throughout the novel trying to convince seniors in the local retirement homes that dying and coming to her is better than living and staying in the retirement home. Meanwhile, those in charge at the retirement homes fight back and come up with monthly incentives to entice their residents to want to keep on living and stay with them.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “A meditation on sense-making when there’s no sense to be made, on letting go when we can’t hold on, and on being unafraid even when we’re terrified.”—Lucy Kalanithi “Belongs on the shelf alongside other terrific books about this difficult subject, like Paul Kalanithi’s When Breath Becomes Air and Atul Gawande’s Being Mortal.”—Bill Gates NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY REAL SIMPLE Kate Bowler is a professor at Duke Divinity School with a modest Christian upbringing, but she specializes in the study of the prosperity gospel, a creed that sees fortune as a blessing from God and misfortune as a mark of God’s disapproval. At thirty-five, everything in her life seems to point toward “blessing.” She is thriving in her job, married to her high school sweetheart, and loves life with her newborn son. Then she is diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer. The prospect of her own mortality forces Kate to realize that she has been tacitly subscribing to the prosperity gospel, living with the conviction that she can control the shape of her life with “a surge of determination.” Even as this type of Christianity celebrates the American can-do spirit, it implies that if you “can’t do” and succumb to illness or misfortune, you are a failure. Kate is very sick, and no amount of positive thinking will shrink her tumors. What does it mean to die, she wonders, in a society that insists everything happens for a reason? Kate is stripped of this certainty only to discover that without it, life is hard but beautiful in a way it never has been before. Frank and funny, dark and wise, Kate Bowler pulls the reader deeply into her life in an account she populates affectionately with a colorful, often hilarious retinue of friends, mega-church preachers, relatives, and doctors. Everything Happens for a Reason tells her story, offering up her irreverent, hard-won observations on dying and the ways it has taught her to live. Praise for Everything Happens for a Reason “I fell hard and fast for Kate Bowler. Her writing is naked, elegant, and gripping—she’s like a Christian Joan Didion. I left Kate’s story feeling more present, more grateful, and a hell of a lot less alone. And what else is art for?”—Glennon Doyle, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Love Warrior and president of Together Rising

In this book, Bishop Butler explores the truths found in the Parable of the Sower, uncovering the secrets God has hidden for you, including the following: • What God does, how He does it and why • What Satan does, how he does it and why • What you should do and why These truths will give you tools for avoiding self-inflicted wounds and strategies to use to deflect the five tools Satan uses — affliction, persecution, the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things — to try and keep the Word from becoming deeply planted in your life.

Holly Reed is a successful attorney and is partnered with two friends. Their law firm is called Reed, Benjamin and Mann. Holly had recently ended a long-time relationship when she met Philip, who was a new friend of Vanessa Benjamin’s husband, Courtney. Philip was a wealthy restauranteur, with Denzel Washington looks and charm. Holly would indulge in a whirlwind affair with him. However, she wasn’t the only one caught in Philip’s ‘twister.” Although that’s a bit surprising, it doesn’t compare to the shock of Vanessa becoming pregnant, yet, her husband is sterile. Needless to say, apparently Vanessa and Holly were sharing more than a law firm. Now as astounding as that may appear, this story takes another turn that’s so compelling you will be left speechless!

Have you ever had something really awful happen to you or someone you love, and then hear someone say, "Well, everything happens for a reason"? Maybe you've said it to yourself. And it helps. Until it doesn't. This book is about finding a way to deal with life, somewhere between "Everything Happens for a Reason", and "Life sucks and then you die," with or without a belief in God. Extreme beliefs in either direction can tangle people up. And that's what many people seem to do. Take a good idea too far, and you get tangled up. We all love easy answers. There are no easy answers. Popular culture has changed over my lifetime. I believe some popular beliefs have got it very wrong.This book is for those who may still believe in God but have difficulty reconciling some of those beliefs with what they hear from modern interpreters of Christian doctrine. It is also for those who have put their faith in "New Age" beliefs (especially the widely popular teachings of "The Secret"). Finally, it is for those who can no longer believe in God, and who identify as agnostic or atheist.As a therapist I often hear, "I just want to be happy". Here are the things that have helped me find some acceptance when life seems unfair, and some ways that can add more moments of happiness.
