Shopping with the Virgin Mary is a collection of small vignettes, not only about shopping, (even though shopping experiences are sprinkled throughout) but the authors growing relationship, knowledge, and understanding of Mary. Her relationship with the Virgin started off, embarrassingly, in the most benign and superficial of ways. She asked Mary to go shopping with and from that one simple request, came a slow and joyful journey of finding her in daily life. Whether she is approved by one church, local official, law enforcement group, psychiatrist, medium or Boy Scout troop seems to make no difference to Mary. She just keeps showing up whenever and wherever she is needed - to Catholics, Protestants, Pagans, Agnostics, Atheists, Aunt Harriet or Cousin Ed . . . there she is. Poof! The most important is that the holy is available to us everywhere: in large cathedrals, on majestic mountains, and in our own backyards. They are here, not just for the pious or religiously good either, but for each and every one of us . . . if we but ask.
Marys Simple Graces, from the author of the award-winning Shopping with the Virgin Mary, Kermie Wohlenhaus, Ph.D., brings powerful and humble messages received from the Virgin Mary to assist us in our daily lives. This book can be opened to any page or read from front to back. Either way, Mary will direct you to just the right grace that will help you this day. They are compelling spiritual messages from Mary for renewing hope, healing, and joy.

It highlights several aspects regarding the manner in which the conventional retail businesses have been affected by the invention and growth of e-Commerce and whether there any strategies that traditional retail businesses are employing as a comeback strategy.

I am Sterling, and I want to share my truly unforgettable life with you. Just imagine you are sitting here with me in Ubud, Bali as you read my book! Living in Bali has been a life enhancing experience. I thrive in its simpler - and I would say - purer lifestyle. No car, no insurance, no oven, no need for heat or AC. A large gecko lives in the rattan rafters on my ceiling. I use berries for makeup and leaves for medicine. My flip flops are ever so comfortable. The unique energy and culture in Bali offer nourishment for my soul. Since I have lived here, poetry and writings have been literally pouring onto the paper. Thats how I came to write Musings in Bali: I Love My Life. The book has two parts. The first humorously shares my experiences as an expat getting acquainted with and settled in Bali. In part 2, I give you a deeper look at the lives and culture of the lovely Balinese people. Among the chapters are interspersed some of my favorite poems that Ive written about Bali. You will enjoy the amazing photos Ive include with every chapter, so you can marvel in the culture as I do. My village of Ubud is listed by important travel publications as 9th on the list of the worlds top 15 cities. Visitors relish the sights, landmarks, culture, cuisine, friendliness, shopping and overall value. But, there are much deeper traditions, amazing art and remarkable individuals that are not open to the casual tourist eye. I can hardly wait to share some of my insights with you!
About the book Minimalist lifestyle...Tips that make your life more easier: Throw ballast overboard! (Minimalism: Declutter your life, home, mind & soul) We live too fast, rush through overfull days, and there is always too much lying around. But that could change. Because: In every one of us is the stuff of the time-millionaire. We ourselves are the ones who turn the clock, because we are stuffing more and more into our everyday lives, and that makes our precious time of life short. We do not have too little time, but too much to do. In this way we ourselves bring the hectic pace into our lives, which we want to avoid. Never really get to the point, and always thinking somewhere else. A simple life with more success, freedom, happiness, money, love and time - that's what we all want. But in our modern performance-oriented society, however, this simplicity often falls by the wayside: consumption, ownership and performance seem to be the more important values, at least superficially. Minimalism as a way of life refers to a way of living that enables everyone to concentrate on the essential things. Minimalism can, but does not have to cover all areas of life. Whoever decides to want to live minimalistically, usually does so very consciously. The motives are almost always similar: # Pressure to perform and career constraints: Too much stress at work, in studies and in leisure time # Excessive lifestyle...body worship, shopping and social media communication: overtaxed by exaggeration and abundance # Manipulation by the marketing industry: social coercion to possess certain consumer goods Minimalism means self-determination and self-realization. Do not let others or society dictate what a good and right life should look like. Freeing yourself from black and white thinking, reducing ownership and responsibilities to save time and money and have more energy for family, friends, hobbies and travel. Start today by making the most of your life and building a positive mindset. Becoming a MINIMALIST...begins in the HEAD!
