The Social Cause Diet: Filling Up with Satisfying Acts of Service

By Gail Perry Johnston

This is not a diet book, but an inspiring look at the health and well-being that is found when we volunteer. Studies show that people who volunteer on a regular basis have significant health benefits. But how do you make time to volunteer and what kind of volunteering should you do? The Social Cause Diet address these questions in an engaging collection of personal stories and thought-provoking essays.

Contributors include Justin McRoberts, Janet Huckabee, Dr. Maithri Goonetilleke, Shaun Groves, Nipun Mehta, and everyday people. Yes, there is a Peace Corps story, but also stories about random acts of kindness. The purpose of the book is to help everyone find a service that feeds their soul!

Speak Easy

By Matthew Calkins and Mary Lou Walker

Whether you are a sparkling asset to a party or painfully shy, observing Mary Lou’s rules will take you to a new level in conversation—and in life. As you learn how to “speak easy” on matters high, low, and in between, you will break away from stale, mundane and repetitive talk and develop a new and enduring source of self-enjoyment.

Mary Lou is a champion of the “colloquy,” something akin to a book club, but without the book. Speak Easy lays the groundwork for starting a colloquy in your own living room, classroom or public library. In these conversation groups—or wherever life may take you—no topics need to be off-limits. As long as you follow the rules, your conversations can be rich, rewarding, and just plain fun.

By Eric P. Nichols

The Spirit of the Craftsman is about igniting your spirit with creative, productive, and fun work.
