Longing for LoveLonging for Love – An Unconventional Relationship Guide:  This book takes the ideas from the first two and applies them to the recognition and nurturing of healthy relationships.  It addresses what to look for, and, more importantly, how to become attracted to, the qualities that make healthy intimacy possible.  The second half of the book addresses the temptations and compulsive behaviors that can destroy a relationship.  You can look inside at Amazon.


Love, Lust and the Longing for GodLove, Lust and the Longing for God combines all three of the previous books in a single volume, along with some additional information.  If you want something short to help someone deal with a particular type of issue, then it makes sense to buy the books individually so that you don’t overwhelm them.  But if you want a reference book that you can read straight through and return to over and over, then this is the book to buy.  Amazon, Interfaith Resources or Special Ideas.


Why Me

Why Me? A Spiritual Guide to Growing Through Tests:  If you have ever wondered why bad things happen to good people, then this book will give you a much more satisfying understanding than you’ve ever heard before.  It explains why a loving and All-Powerful God will still give us tests and difficulties as a means of helping us fulfill our purpose in life.  Both comforting and challenging, it is a quick read written in a conversational style.  It leans heavily on the writings of the Baha’i Faith, but offers insights that can be appreciated by anyone who wants to believe in a loving God.  Amazon, Special Ideas, Interfaith Resources


The Secret of Happiness – Gift Edition.  This started out as a booklet that introduced the idea that happiness comes, not from practicing virtues, but by falling in love with them first, so that practicing them becomes a source of joy.  After selling over 12,000 copies, I added some new quotations, prettier borders and larger type and turned it into a lovely gift book that you can give to anyone with a spiritual leaning.  Get one copy at Amazon, or get bulk pricing on this or the original version at Special Ideas or Interfaith Resources.
