I Do I Don’t: How to Build a Better Marriage tells the story of Ben and Grace on their journey of learning and practicing the tools and skills needed for a lifetime of intimacy. Each chapter introduces a new relationship skill, and ends with Put It Into Practice, a set of easy-to-follow exercises to help the reader develop a personal understanding of the skills needed to build and strengthen any relationship.

With a foreword by John Kilcullen, founder/CEO of the For Dummies brand and book series, and written by acclaimed psychotherapist Chandrama Anderson MA, LMFT, and engagingly illustrated by rising young artist Nur Jaffar Latip, I Do I Don’t will help any reader to Build a Better Marriage.

Trail Running Bend and Central Oregon is an extensive guide to the best trail running in one of the country’s top outdoor destinations. Author and trail runner Lucas Alberg provides detailed descriptions of the area’s best loop runs, including several new trails added within recent years. From classic high desert runs to the east in the Badlands, to mountain escapes and high alpine scenery to the west in the Cascades, the guide highlights the unique and diverse geography that Central Oregon has to offer.
Unlike other guidebooks, Trail Running Bend and Central Oregon is organized by season, so runners can know when to hit the right trails at the right times throughout the year. The 50 routes described in the book are all located within 65 miles of Bend, which means that trail runners will spend more time doing what they love to do, instead of spending time behind the windshield in anticipation.

The Invitation

Betrayal … Desire … Violence … Fear …

Though she’s somewhat guilt-ridden from repeatedly lying to her husband, Nicki Keating’s anticipation of a passionate Valentine’s celebration with her lover overpowers all shame. But after arriving at his stunning mountain home, she encounters her darkest nightmare. Devastated and frightened, Nicki runs … but to where?

Uncertainty … Doubt … Distrust … Worry …

Marlee Ryan, a part-time journalist for the Philadelphia Inquirer, is married to an orthopedic surgeon and mother to sixteen-year-old Patrick—who is growing up more quickly than she’d like to admit. While writing comes easily to Marlee, she struggles with her most recent assignment addressing holistic healing opportunities in the Philadelphia area. After participating in several New Age practices, Marlee realizes that not only do these spiritual wellness methods help her feel renewed, but they also assist in unearthing feelings she’s suppressed for years. However, these lessons quickly surpass personal development when Marlee and three friends travel to the Poconos for a getaway weekend. Unexpectedly intertwined in a murder mystery, the four women utilize newly discovered gifts to uncover missing pieces to the crime. This journey of self-realization guides Marlee to release the past, listen to her intuition, and embrace the uncertainty of her future.
