I know what it's like to be considered a dreamer and a warrior stripped of everything! I know what it's like to experience every convenience or financial resource denied. These are the times of testing, the times to learn to be totally dependent upon God. I have an idea of the pain that David felt when he would cry, petition, and ask God to move on his behalf on a point of urgency. -excerpt from Stirring My Soul to Sing

Stirring My Soul to Sing: Overcoming ADHD Through Song shares the personal events of W. Ian Walker's life as an arts consultant, musician, "singer-actor," chorister, and music director. His life story is one of faith and arts awareness in overcoming many obstacles associated with attention deficit hyper-activity disorder-ADHD. Behind the lyrics, melodies, and ovations, Ian experienced verbal abuse, school bullying, poor academic standing, employment instability, financial hardship, and divorce. Offering insight into an "artistic life" as an alternative to medication, Ian shares very personal details of the joys and sorrows of adapting to this disorder.

Prayer has long had an action component to it. There are many ways we can pray that involve our senses and our bodies. Journaling, skipping rocks, drawing, singing, touching, dancing, even walking can be acts of prayer. William Tenny-Brittian, himself diagnosed with adult ADHD, goes back to ancient times and into the techno-generation to share ten types of kinesthetic prayer that will help even the most fidgety connect with God. He has filled Prayer for People Who Can't Sit Still with ideas, easy-to-follow instructions, and ways to adapt kinesthetic prayer to most any situation and "personal limitation." Kinesthetic prayer can also have profound effects on the prayer life of children and youth. Prayer for People Who Can't Sit Still is a valuable resource in children's and youth ministries, helping these action-oriented age groups to find ways to build relationships with God. A relationship takes time together, says William Tenny-Brittian. Prayer for People Who Can't Sit Still is written to help you spend more meaningful time with God.

Every day, your school, your teachers, and even your peers draw lines to measure and standardize intelligence. They decide what criteria make one person smart and another person stupid. They decide who will succeed and who will just get by. Perhaps you find yourself outside the norm, because you learn differently-but, unlike your classmates, you have no system in place that consistently supports your ability and desire to learn. Simply put, you are considered lazy and stupid. You are expected to fail.

Learning Outside the Lines is written by two such "academic failures"-that is, two academic failures who graduated from Brown University at the top of their class. Jonathan Mooney and David Cole teach you how to take control of your education and find true success-and they offer all the reasons why you should persevere. Witty, bold, and disarmingly honest, Learning Outside the Lines takes you on a journey toward personal empowerment and profound educational change, proving once again that rules sometimes need to be broken.

An estimated 20 percent of boys and up to 8 percent of girls have attention deficit disorder--a condition marked by distractibility, short attention span, impulsiveness, and hyperactivity. Many physicians routinely prescribe Ritalin, an amphetamine-like drug, to modify the behavior of ADD children. But as Dr. William Sears and child psychologist Lynda Thompson explain, drug therapy is not the only way to approach A.D.D. Drawing on the latest research findings and their own experiences with ADD children, Sears and Thompson show that these kids actually possess certain real advantages: tenacity, energy, creativity, spontaneity, and the ability to hyperfocus. They offer a state-of-the-art self-help approach to ADD that will help parents reduce or eliminate the need for drugs--including cutting-edge neurofeedback techniques and learning strategies that empower ADD children and teach them how to cope. Full of real-life case histories, this landmark guide is an indispensable resource for every parent with an ADD child--and the only book available that focuses on the positive side of ADD.
