“Compelling and compassionate human drama. If you want to understand how modern medicine ticks, fasten your seat belt and spend a day in the hospital with Theresa Brown on The Shift.” —Danielle Ofri, MD, author of What Doctors Feel In a book as eye-opening as it is riveting, practicing nurse and regular contributor to the New York Times Theresa Brown invites us to experience not just a day in the life of a nurse but all the life that happens in just one day on a busy teaching hospital’s cancer ward. In the span of twelve hours, lives can be lost, life-altering treatment decisions made, and dreams fulfilled or irrevocably stolen. Every day, Theresa Brown holds these lives in her hands. On this day, there are four. Unfolding in real time under the watchful eyes of Theresa Brown--a dedicated nurse and an insightful chronicler of events--we are given an unprecedented view into the individual struggles as well as the larger truths about medicine in this country. By shift’s end, we have witnessed something profound about hope and humanity. “This meticulous, absorbing shift-in-the-life account of one nurse’s day on a cancer ward stands out for its honesty, clarity, and heart. Brown . . . juggles the fears, hopes, and realities of a 12-hour shift in a typical urban hospital with remarkable insight and unflagging care. Her memoir is a must-read for nurses or anyone close to one.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review “An empathetic and absorbing narrative as riveting as a TV drama.” —Kirkus Reviews “I am filled with awe and gratitude for the work that the nurses like Theresa Brown do every day. She captures perfectly their central role in any patient’s life!” —Susan M. Love, MD, chief visionary officer, Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation, and author of Dr. Susan Love’s Breast Book

When a network executive warned her that if she didn't lose weight her television career could be in jeopardy, Tory experienced something profound: A Shift.

With disarming honesty, she shares her experience of overcoming the inevitable challenges along the way.

For anyone who has struggled to make a big life change, The Shift offers valuable lessons and inspiration for taking charge once and for all.

Based on the African American Women's Voices Project, Shifting reveals that a large number of African American women feel pressure to com-promise their true selves as they navigate America's racial and gender bigotry. Black women "shift" by altering the expectations they have for themselves or their outer appearance. They modify their speech. They shift "White" as they head to work in the morning and "Black" as they come back home each night. They shift inward, internalizing the searing pain of the negative stereotypes that they encounter daily. And sometimes they shift by fighting back. With deeply moving interviews, poignantly revealed on each page, Shifting is a much-needed, clear, and comprehensive portrait of the reality of African American women's lives today.

God said that we were to subdue the earth and have dominion over every living thing including the power of the enemy. We can t even begin to think in those terms because our experiences don t conform to that image of our authority. We need to start seeing things through God s eyes and start LIVING OFF THE GRID of our limited mindsets. Jesus could raise the dead, heal the sick, set captives free, rule the weather, change the economy, and drive out demonic influences. Jesus said we could do the same things if we have faith but not by using soulish power. Trying harder, changing laws, and devising more efficient systems won t change hearts or overcome the forces arrayed against Christ s kingdom. Ken and Jeanne demonstrate through the scriptures and their own journey how to access the halls of power by the Spirit. Let God impose His super over your natural and change your world.
