Hopeless to Hopeful: A Mom’s Guide to Raising Children with Special Needs and Staying Inspired is a blueprint for any mom raising a special needs child looking to live a balanced life. Catherine Todd shares the story of two of her children who struggle with autism, ADHD, and anxiety and the journey through their diagnosis. Moms parenting special needs children are faced with the struggle of finding support for themselves and their child. Maneuvering the IEP meetings, teacher communication, and finding support for both mother and child is often a lonely and isolating process.
Hopeless to Hopeful reads like a personal story laced with practical strategies that work, from building a tribe of support for you and your child, to letting go of the guilt that comes with a child’s diagnosis. Moms will learn the importance of modeling an inspired and balanced life for their children, so that their children can create the same life for themselves. Children model what they are shown by their parents, and in Hopeless to Hopeful you will learn how to model a life of hope and inspiration for your children and family.
Catherine Todd is ecstatic to share her story including practical tips, and inspiration for moms raising children with special needs. She holds an M.A in education, as well as certification as a Life Purpose coach. Her own heart-wrenching struggle faced in raising children with special needs inspired her to help moms and their children to live a life of endless possibilities. Residing in Columbus, Ohio, she actively works with students on IEPs to achieve their educational goals, and provides private coaching to a select number of women on a yearly basis. Catherine also hosts the podcast Hopeless to Hopeful.
Every man is born with just one thing: his sovereignty—his power to respond to his environment and his circumstances. Unfortunately, most men have spent much of their lives giving away that sovereignty. Every time a man passes blame or shirks his responsibility, every time he makes excuses for his performance, and every time he trades his unlimited potential for a little perceived safety and security, he willingly submits himself to the mercy of others.
Is it any wonder that men, in general, seem to have lost their way? You don’t have to look very far to recognize that men don’t seem to possess the same amount of vigor and purpose they once did. Take one sobering statistic—the rate of suicide in men—and you begin to see how damaging the effects of the voluntary subjugation of men to their families, their businesses, and their governments can be.
It’s not hard to understand why we give up control to others—it’s easy and we’re expected to. Sovereignty: The Battle for the Hearts and Minds of Men is a call for men to once again rise up and establish themselves as they once were—a revolution if you will.
Inside the pages of this book, we’ll uncover the battle each man will inevitably engage in, the external forces fighting against the call to masculinity, and the internal struggle all men must overcome.
But make no mistake, this revolution is not a call for men to go their own way and rally against society. It’s a call for men to become fully the men they are meant to be so they may more adequately take care of themselves and those they are responsible for. Men have always been expected to protect, provide, and preside over themselves, their families, their businesses, and their communities. By embodying the thirteen Sovereign Virtues we detail inside, every man will be more capable of fulfilling his masculine duties and responsibilities.
The words in this book go well beyond principle and theory, however, as we build the framework for establishing a battle plan to combat the external and internal threats to our masculine power and give every man the tools, resources, guidance, direction, and ability to reclaim what has always been his: his sovereignty.
Ryan Michler is a husband, father, Iraq combat veteran, and the founder of Order of Man and the Iron Council.
Ryan grew up without a permanent father figure and has seen firsthand how a lack of strong, ambitious, selfsufficient men has impacted society today. He believes many of the world’s most complicated problems could be solved if men everywhere learned how to be better husbands, fathers, businessmen, and community leaders.
It has now become his life’s mission to help men across the planet step more fully into their roles as protectors, providers, and presiders over themselves, their families, their businesses, and their communities.
You can find him blogging and podcasting at www.OrderOfMan.com, where he is working to help men become all they were meant to be.
What are the Universal Laws? How can you apply them in your life? How will change benefit you? These and other questions are answered in this enthralling book. It is a book about life, its struggles, its heartaches, but mostly about the indomitable spirit that human beings possess to see the goal to its fruition.
You will meet many endearing characters from the author’s life: people who have helped shape his destiny and aid in his spiritual growth. And in very simple language you will enter the world of metaphysics: the place beyond the physical, from where derives the whole of existence.

Statistically speaking, at the end of your life, you are most likely to regret that you didn’t do more of what you love. You will likely feel as though you spent your professional life getting up, going to the office and living the same day over and over, week after week, year after year, decade after decade. Ironically, it’s the same people who wind up regretting not doing more who spend their careers resisting change and shutting down creative ideas. I know, because I spent nearly two decades as a change agent in a large advertising agency.

When we mention the word “abuse,” we automatically think of sexual and physical abuse because that is the most obvious form. We often don’t consider that emotional abuse can be just as harmful to a woman’s sense of well-being.
Many of us have heard the saying: “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” That is an outrageous lie! Rudyard Kipling said, “Words are the most powerful drug known to humanity.” How true that is, and abusers use them as extremely effective weapons in their arsenal. Hurtful and demeaning words sear themselves into an abused woman’s brain, into her subconscious, and effectively reorganizes and damages her thought processes.
Until you recognize the signs of abuse and make the difficult decision to leave the relationship behind, or at least begin to contemplate the possibility, you can’t move forward toward a new life.
Take the time to examine your intimate relationship and determine whether or not, somewhere deep inside, something needs to change and give yourself permission to use the information you find in this book as a guide to help you break the cycle of abuse and reclaim your life. Use the personal 12-step program as a tool to help you to heal and grow as you become the new you.
Let this book be your inspiration to make a significant, perhaps long overdue, change in your life. What a wonderful opportunity you have to start from the beginning again!
Carol-Ann Marshall has determined that the current popular definition of abuse needs to be broadened to include emotional abuse. Having personally experienced the devastating effects of emotionally abusive relationships, she is using her experiences to encourage other women to examine their own lives and choose a new direction. She lives in Toronto, Canada.
Concussion – the biggest name in today’s high-impact sports.
As more and more high profile athletes come forward to share their stories of invisible suffering after head injuries, we as a culture are finally acknowledging this silent epidemic.

“San Pedro / Huachuma: Opening The Pathways Of The Heart” is an invitation to explore and reconnect with our inner landscapes with the help of San Pedro, also known in South America as Huachuma. San Pedro (Echinopsis pachanoi) is a psychoactive cactus native of the Andes, but more importantly it’s an ancestral medicine that has been used for millennia for healing and ceremonial purposes.
Our Western psychic and psychological make-up differs radically from that of Andean people, and our needs as modern people differ just as much from the needs of the ancestors and inhabitants of this land. Read More

This book comes out of an exercise I was given in my women’s circle to spend five minutes a day meditating with a photo of each of my grandmothers, asking them for guidance. As I sat with the spirits of these remarkable women each day, my pen moving rapidly across the page, they offered up their stories, wisdom and advice in the most loving way imaginable.
Early on, I knew that something extraordinary was happening, and I also knew that their experiences and their guidance from beyond was something people everywhere could benefit from. In a unique diary format, I posed a question each day and received answers that helped me to redefine my life and my path. Foremost in my mind throughout this journey was the question, “How can this benefit others?”
It has long been my intention and my fondest wish to create experiences for my students and clients that open their hearts, touch their souls, and put them firmly on the path to joy and healing. Through writings, classes, and healing or spiritual guidance sessions, it has been my privilege to do just that. And, along the way I have learned from each and every person I have encountered.

To inspire it in yourself and others - is greatness.” I say welcome to the University of Greatness!

Do you feel caught in a negative, looping behavior pattern? Do you ever wonder why the same situation seems to play out in your life with a revolving cast of characters?
If you have become a “people pleaser” or fancy yourself a self-styled rebel, perhaps these are the surface level manifestations of something stirring deep within you—a need to let go. Other symptoms of holding on to the past are a constant need for acknowledgment or a fear of showing vulnerability.
The common thread that runs through these behaviors and patterns is that the symptoms likely arise from a specific negative experience, which has never been fully processed. Never been let go. You have allowed this experience to take control of your destiny, and it is keeping you from living free and being who you really are.
