Journey To Recovery: A Return to the Self
by Donna Kasik Junker

This RECOVERY WORKBOOK is not limited to addictions.  As the author explains, “Not all people suffer from addictions, but we all suffer from not always living as the people we want to be.  Perhaps you have tried recovery before and have failed; let’s try again. But this time, rather than focusing only on ourselves, be open to God.  If you are unsure about God or maybe do not believe in Him at all, I ask you to have an open mind; what will it hurt? Maybe your dreams have been broken.  According to C.S. Lewis, “The key to broken dreams is to dream again.”  As we go through this journey to recovery, let’s dream again…”

Thinking Outside the Box ...About Love
Three Weeks In Africa
by Donna Kasik Junker

?We as the American hospices are not sent to help the poor African hospices, but to deepen relationships with them, to assess needs and to discover how they function. We can share our knowledge with them, and they in turn can share their knowledge and insight with us. Hospice and Palliative Care is a new concept in Africa, and is established, funded and carried out in different ways than American hospices. The author's 3-pronged purpose in writing this book is to: 1) Approach hospice care from a missional point of view, 2) Share the importance of compassionate, faith-based end-of-life care, and 3) Understand and appreciate Zambia's challenges of hospice and palliative care.

Thinking Outside the Box ...About Love
Kenya: A Priority on My Bucket List
by Donna Kasik Junker

A list of things to do or accomplish before one exits this life is called a bucket list. One of the items on the author's bucket list was to go somewhere in Africa to see the wild animals in their natural habitat. Little did she know that Kenya, East Africa would become like a second home and would offer far more than a safari ride. Traveling to Kenya seven times, the author gives a detailed account of her experiences and brings to light the clash of cultures which can cause misunderstandings between missionaries and Kenyans. The cross-cultural lessons learned in this book can be applied to missions anywhere.

Recovery: A Return to the Self
by Donna Kasik Junker

Using real-life situations, the author demonstrates principles and practices to recover the true self lost along the way. The blueprint the author used in her own recovery is like a roadmap to protect and guide - not just a rule book. As a hospice chaplain, the author witnessed first-hand the wisdom of the dying, but it was after working with the poor and dying in India that she created the spiritual 12-step program outlined in this book.
