For the first time in human history, cases of mental disease have surpassed those of physical disease. This can be attributed to any number of causes, but chief among them are increasing loss of balance in our lives, increasing self-degradation, and growing reliance on material wealth to convince ourselves we are happy. In the darkest moment does shine the greatest light--we are not lost, and we are not alone. In A Leap of Faith, wellness specialist, writer, and former model Anna Jane Wilson shares with us her journey through darkness--loss, heartbreak, disease, depression, fear--and into the maturity of her heart and soul, into the glory of discovering true love for herself and for the world. Anna Jane's tale, told through both prose and poetry, hides nothing and is one to which all can relate, especially young people and those searching for answers in this time of Earth's ascension. Her travels from childhood through the struggles of a divided family, debilitating disease, failed relationships, and finding a home are traced to the present, in which, by choice, focus, and faith, she is constantly learning and sharing the delights of life and living. Her lessons are ours as well--from the moment we decide to stop and look inward--to question what our life is really about--we begin the journey out of fear, hate and sorrow and towards the full expression of love and compassion, the full expression of our hearts and souls.

The dramatic insider account of why we invaded Iraq, the motivations that drove it, and the frustrations of those who tried and failed to stop it, leading to the most costly misadventure in US history. A single disastrous choice in the wake of 9/11-the decision to use force to remove Saddam Hussein from power-did enormous damage to the wealth, well-being, and reputation of the United States. Few errors in U.S. foreign policy have had longer-lasting or more harmful consequences. Yet how the decision came to be made remains shrouded in mystery and mythology. To this day, even the principal architects of the war cannot agree on it. Michael Mazarr has interviewed dozens of players involved in the deliberations about the invasion of Iraq and has reviewed all the documents so far declassified. He paints a devastating of portrait of an administration fueled by righteous conviction yet undercut by chaotic processes, rivalrous agencies, and competing egos. But more than the product of one bungling administration, the invasion of Iraq emerges here as a tragically typical example of modern U.S. foreign policy fiascos. Leap of Faith asks profound questions about the limits of US power and the accountability for its use. It offers lessons urgently relevant to stave off similar disasters-today and in the future.

Can true love be built on lies? A teen on the run seeks relief and redemption in this gripping, “compulsively readable” (School Library Journal) romantic read that Kirkus Reviews calls a “marvelous debut, moving and suspenseful.” Leah Kurtz has finally found a place to call home, a town where she and baby Addy can live in peace, far from the drug-infested place she grew up. Chris is one of the best parts of her new life, the only person who’s ever made her feel safe. And now that she’s found him, there’s no way she can tell the truth: Her real name is Faith, not Leah. She’s seventeen, not nineteen. And the baby isn’t hers—Faith kidnapped her. Faith’s history catches up with her when a cop starts asking questions and Chris’s aunt spots her picture in the newspaper. She knows it’s time to run again, but if Faith leaves, she’ll lose Chris. If Chris is in love with a lie, though, did Faith ever really have him in the first place?

A vivid novel about ingenuity and hard slog, crooks and dreamers, bootleggers and love. Billy is a young, impressionable dreamer. In 1907, he strikes off on his own, keen to prove himself an able worker on the new railroad. It's being cut through steep mountainsides and across deep gullies to join the two ends of the Main Trunk Line. Also drawn to the remote worker settlements are miners from Denniston, young men fresh off the boat, sly-groggers, temperance campaigners, women following their menfolk, local Maori and a varied assortment of people after a new life or a quick buck. Among them is a preacher, Gabriel Locke, who is running from a shady past and determined to avoid the daily grind. With untimely and suspicious deaths, the horrendous weather, impossible deadlines and the rugged landscape, it will take a lot more than a leap of faith for this disparate group to complete the railroad and build the magnificent Makatote viaduct . . .

In this new book A Leap of Faith: The Call to Art, Horovitz examines the diverse and convergent roles of the therapist as artist, writer, mother, teacher, and clinician. This new book questions what is essential in art therapy and engages authentic positioning in and out of the therapeutic office. This return to art, or the "call to art," changed the author’s identity and efficacy as a therapist. Artwork, fiction, and clinical work transform as insight occurs. The casework throughout the book provides models for integrating the assessment and intuitive features of art therapy educator and clinician. Horovitz' own work and that of her clients is shared without guile. In this book, the myth of clinician neutrality is broken and instead the author's focus is on bringing one's conscious self to work in order to become more authentic with oneself and one’s clients. This state of "elemental play" perpetuates that connection with the patient as another human being on the trajectory towards wellness. The fundamental process of art making that guides personal and professional life is described as "elemental play." Play is seen as the intrinsic element of the art making process that offers directions for resolution of conflicts, the evolution of personal growth, and ultimately 'soulution.' This concept of an artistic "soulution" offers the necessary elements of healing and transformation. For any reader, whether trained in art therapy or not, A Leap of Faith: The Call to Art validates the transcendent aspects of art creativity, and play.
