From one of the nation's preeminent experts on women and emotion, a breakthrough new book about how to stop negative thinking and become more productive It's no surprise that our fast-paced, overly self-analytical culture is pushing many people-especially women-to spend countless hours thinking about negative ideas, feelings, and experiences. Renowned psychologist Dr. Susan Nolen-Hoeksema calls this overthinking, and her groundbreaking research shows that an increasing number of women-more than half of those in her extensive study-are doing it too much and too often, hindering their ability to lead a satisfying life. Overthinking can be anything from fretting about the big questions such as "What am I doing with my life?" to losing sleep over a friend's innocent comment. It is causing many women to end up sad, anxious, or seriously depressed, and Nolen-Hoeksema challenges the assumption-heralded by so many pop-psychology pundits of the last several decades-that constantly expressing and analyzing our emotions is a good thing. In Women Who Think Too Much, Nolen-Hoeksema shows us what causes so many women to be overthinkers and provides concrete strategies that can be used to escape these negative thoughts, move to higher ground, and live more productively. Women Who Think Too Much will change lives and is destined to become a self-help classic.
Many people wonder why bad things happen to good people. You have to realize that there are many things which are hidden from us; and they are known to God. And we do not have to worry ourselves to know about many of them, especially when knowing the true nature and reason may not avail any good. We are not God; and we cannot know everything. Yet God reveals what He wants us to know to us. The Spirit of God reveals many things to us; but He reveals what God wants us to know. And you may not have to use what God told you about a situation to generalize and apply it to some other situations. If you do, you may be erring and deceiving yourself and others.

Little is known of Jewish participation in the history of the United States: even less of Jewish involvement in our armed forces. To read a history of our public schools, one would never know that Jews have been citizens, much less soldiers, of our country, from the inception of the Republic. While token mention is made of a Haym Solomon, or a Dr. Salk, scarce attention is paid to the important role of Jewish-Americans in the history of the United States. Footsteps of David acquaints the reader with dozens of stories of Jewish-American heroes, their role, service, and sacrifice in the military. Some of the participants are well known, most are obscure, unnoticed, and unpublicized. Other than their own circle of friends and family, few know of their heroic and unselfish service. Jewish service has been important, but unrecognized. While our ethnic/religious groups have all made their contribution to the aggrandizement, success, and defense of our country, the Jewish role has been ignored. Footsteps of David corrects that oversight. It fills that void. In Footsteps of David, one reads of dozens of Jewish GIs and heroes, participants in all of our conflicts and wars. They come to life. We read of their service, valor, honor, and sacrifice: the same as those of all our countrymen in defense of our country. They faced the same hardships, deprivations, and successes. But, at times, they had to do so in the face of antipathy and contempt, which made their task doubly difficult. That they emerged from the forge of enemy and friendly fire is further evidence of the difficult path that many trod. Thus, the undecorated as well as the decorated are true heroes of our nation. Cervantes said that his honor is dearer to him than his life. The pages of Footsteps of David exemplify the words of the great Spanish writer.
