Was He Naughty or Nice? On the first day of Christmas, Carly Michaels's true love gave to her…a headache! Pete Cade might be the hunk every woman dreams of finding under her tree. But he was also a real Scrooge. At the top of Carly's Christmas list was the C word—commitment. And Pete wasn't ready to give that kind of gift. Carly could have easily settled for his kisses, as heady as cider. His touch, as gentle as snowflakes. His lovemaking, as exciting as Christmas morning. But she had more than her own needs to think of. She wanted Pete to give her the greatest Yuletide gift of all—a father for her daughter.

10 Wege zu Frieden und Gewaltlosigkeit Arun Gandhi ist der Enkel Mahatma Gandhis. Als 12-Jähriger erlebte er den bedeutenden und einflussreichen Friedensaktivisten aus nächster Nähe. Zwei Jahre lang lebte er gemeinsam mit ihm im Ashram Sevagram in Zentralindien. Während dieser Zeit lehrte sein Großvater ihn die zehn wichtigsten Lektionen des Lebens, ein Vermächtnis, das Arun in diesem Buch mit uns teilt. So enthält jedes Kapitel eine zeitlose Lektion Mahatma Gandhis. Allmählich lernt Arun die Welt in der Obhut seines geliebten Großvaters neu zu sehen. Und gemeinsam mit ihm durchdringt auch der Leser Fragen zum Umgang mit Wut, zur Identität, zu Depression, Verschwendung, Einsamkeit, Freundschaft und Familie. Mahatma Gandhi hat mit seiner Lehre die Welt verändert. Seine Idee des Widerstands durch Ungehorsam und Gewaltlosigkeit haben Tausende, darunter Martin Luther King und Nelson Mandela, inspiriert. Sein Vermächtnis an seinen Enkelsohn kann uns allen Orientierung geben in diesen schwierigen Zeiten.

What happens when we tap into rich resources we all have within us? Ordinary days sparkle with extraordinary moments and all areas of our lives are enriched. In this empowering book, Costanzo shares examples of triumphs, transformations, and healings that result from using our inherent gifts of strength, beauty, courage, compassion, hope, joy, talent, imagination, reverence, wisdom, love, and faith. Each story inspires us to stay in touch with our inner gifts, especially when fear, hurt, or anger has derailed us. How did Touchstone Stories come to be? In 2000, while promoting her bestselling book, The Twelve Gifts of Birth, Charlene traveled America in a motor home. It was then, while visiting schools, shelters, prisons, and places of worship, that Charlene began to watch closely for evidence of ?the twelve gifts? in herself and in others. This daily practice became a personal quest, one on which she invites us to join her. The stories within are intended to spark memories of using our gifts and to build our own collection of touchstones.
