She led me to a rock overlooking the ocean. All was quiet except for the pounding of the surf below us. The moon was bright and shining, and it left a trail of light on the ocean in front of us that glimmered and danced on the water. Shayla put her arm around my shoulders. My heart started to dance like the light on the water. In 1966 Southern California, twenty-somethings Norm Supancheck and Shayla Strohmeyer make a heartbreaking decision not to get married. There’s just one problem: they are deeply, acutely, and irrevocably in love. Though they are separated, their lives will intersect over the years in uncanny ways. Shayla will give her heart to another man and marry him instead. Norm, who becomes a priest, will perform their wedding ceremony and bless their union. Shayla and her husband will raise a family. Norm will baptize their children. Shayla and her husband will move three states away. Norm will visit often and become an integral part of the family’s life. As the years advance, the dark finger of mortality will beckon to them both, and Shayla and Norm’s lives will intersect in one final, poignant and lasting way. Like a Nicholas Sparks novel, this book is powerful, lyrical, and beautifully surprising. It is for anyone who’s ever sensed that the call to love extends beyond anticipatable boundaries. It’s a story about being pulled between two worlds, about loving deeply and truly, but expressing that love in ways not first imagined. Father Norm Supancheck’s touching and monumental memoir will comfort and challenge you. More than that, this incredible true story will reinforce everything you’ve ever believed about the unshakable passion and devotion of a lifelong love. Ultimately, like true love itself, this story will never let you go.

Now, more than ever, Family Medicine is alive and well in the United States. The base of this medical specialty has traditionally been in the smaller cities, suburban communities, and rural areas of this country. Over the past decade, however, there has been a resurgence of interest in primary care in our major metropolitan areas as a solution to the high tech subspecialty pace of the tertiary care environment. A rebirth of urban family medicine has accompanied these pioneering efforts. To date, the accomplishments are substantial and the prospects are bright. There is still a long way to go and there are a significant number of hurdles to cross. Although diseases are generally the same wherever you are, their effects as illness on the individual and the family are strongly influenced by the environment and social milieu. Urban families have distinctive and diverse problems-cultural, economic, and ethnic. Training pro grams situated in the large cities must recognize these issues and include special emphasis on the situations that the family physician is likely to encounter during and after his training. There is very little research literature on the background and nature of special urban problems and these areas are the subject of several chapters of this long overdue volume devoted specifically to urban family medicine. Dr. Birrer has persuaded true experts to share their knowledge with the reader.

Have you ever wondered why many women do not seem to be concerned about God’s calling? It’s not because women are lazy or uninterested in what God is doing today in the latter days. It simply stems from the wrong idea that God can and will only choose a man to lead his people or fulfil his purpose. It is not a good idea at all because God has clearly exhibited in His Word that women are valuable and can contribute greatly to society’s wellbeing. In this book, Pastor Portia Luthuli, seeks to address and redress this social imbalance and reveal that God can and will call women for His Divine Purpose. When God Calls A Woman will help any woman respond to their calling with ease, deal with rejection and scorn and use the anointing in their lives to turn things around and change society for the better.

Social Work with the Aged and Their Families presents the functional-age model (FAM) of intergenerational treatment, an integrative theoretical framework for social workers practicing with older adults and their families. In keeping with the Council on Social Work Education’s curriculum mandate of 2015, social workers are now encouraged to use human behavior theories in working with their geriatric clients. This fourth edition incorporates much-needed additional techniques to address the mental health assessments of the elderly. FAM addresses the assessment of older adults’ biological, psychological, socio-cultural, and spiritual age. It also incorporates an evaluation of the family system, family roles, and family development in this assessment. Interventions at the individual, family, group, and community levels are discussed. This volume, augmented with recent concepts related to successful aging, spirituality, and resiliency, presents the major converging conceptual trends that constitute a model for twenty-first century social work practice in the field of aging. It is an indispensable text for those training in social work practice with the elderly, or those currently in practice.
