If You Leave Me, Can I Come with You? by Misti B. Summary

Misti B.’s incisive and irreverent meditations offer daily doses of humor, healing, and hope for the tragedies, triumphs, and everyday aggravations that come with codependency. If You Leave Me, Can I Come with You? proves that we can laugh at ourselves and still take our recovery seriously. Infusing hard-earned wisdom with self-revealing honesty and fearless humor, Misti B. shines a healing light into the confusions and contradictions, as well as the self-defeating thoughts and actions, that codependents and those in Al-Anon frequently face. Misti’s refreshingly original daily meditations tackle issues such as people-pleasing, lack of boundaries, and perfectionism. On this yearlong journey, she shows how these habits don’t have to overwhelm us if we work a solid Twelve Step program—and learn to take ourselves lightly. This book delivers the right mix of support, inspiration, and irreverence

The Spirits Are Always With Me by Jane Shutt Summary

Jane Shutt is a down-to-earth Yorkshire woman who leads an extraordinary life as one of Britain's leading shamanic healers. Shamanism is an ancient spiritual path that exists all around the world; and a shaman uses his or her close affinity with nature and spirits to help those in need of healing. In The Spirits are Always with Me, Jane Shutt explains what shamanism really is, and how it is especially relevant to us in the modern world as we seek to connect with our roots and with our own sense of inner purpose. She shares her own incredible story and the stories of many of those who have come to her for help and healing. Jane reveals the ways in which shamanism can dramatically help people to turn their lives around. She recalls her own shamanic journeys to other levels of reality, including adventures in the Otherworld, spine-tingling visits to the Land of the Dead and other reaches of existence. She shows how shamanism can offer inroads into anything from curing a physical ailment, to dealing with mischievous household sprites, through to healing a whole city.

I Am A Child Of GOD by Victoria Gadsden Summary

This book is an accumulation of prayers, poems, and prose written over the last sixty years. "My Special Prayer" was written when I was at my first church camp. I was eight years old. "If We Had Peace" was written at age twelve. The rest were written when with my grandparents in the summer on a lake in Michigan, school assignments, and just being with God in many situations. My walk with God began in Kalamazoo, Michigan, at age three. God and I have held hands and walked together throughout my sixty-four years. I've known Him since before I knew how to pray.

Where There Is No Midwife by Sarah Pinto Summary

In the Sitapurdistrict of Uttar Pradesh, an agricultural region with high rates of infant mortality, maternal health services are poor while family planning efforts are intensive. By following the daily lives of women in this setting, the author considers the women’s own experiences of birth and infant death, their ways of making-do, and the hierarchies they create and contend with. This book develops an approach to the care that focuses on emotion, domestic spaces, illicit and extra-institutional biomedicine, and household and neighborly relations that these women are able to access. It shows that, as part of the concatenation of affect and access, globalized moralities about reproduction are dependent on ambiguous ideas about caste. Through the unfolding of birth and death, a new vision of "untouchability" emerges that is integral to visions of progress.

Diary of an Unlikely Warrior by Angela Powers Flippen Summary

While praying and fasting for the local churches, God gave us the answers we had been seeking. It was not what we expected. Have you ever wondered why we do not see the works of the Holy Spirit in the Church? Have you ever wondered why Christians seemed to be so vexed and smitten? I know I have. Before we can see the good fruit Jesus told us to bear, we have to uproot the bad fruit. We have to seek him in Spirit and in truth. We have to die to self. I feel it is impossible for God to dump great authority and anointing in a people, when we have been unfaithful to him in the small matters. I believe he is looking for people like you and me, who will sacrifice and seek. When we seek, we must then obey. This book is an act of obedience to the Lord on my part, knowing full well there will be persecution and opposition. You can fill the sea with the things I do not know or understand, but one thing I do know is about deliverance and warfare. I pray this word is deposited into the right hearts and people and we will have a spiritual awakening. As my group was roused from a deep spiritual slumber, so I am praying that for you as well.

The B.U.I.L.D. Project by Bernard Ruffin Summary

They say that a good book can change your life. That’s the mindset Bernard Ruffin took hold of when putting together The B.U.I.L.D. Project. So often people find themselves stranded and astray from the lives they hoped for or feel like they deserve, and once you’re lost to the world, it’s hard to find your way back to the position you want to be in. No one should face up against the hardships of the world alone, and you don’t have to. The B.U.I.L.D. Project is about providing you with a life plan template that will result in an overall positive change to your experience. Yes, the roots are based in Christianity, but this book is about so much more. Through the pages of The B.U.I.L.D. Project, you will learn the importance of family and personal health, while also tackling business and your financial life. Prayer is a necessary part of many of our lives, but with this piece of work, Bernard Ruffin and PRAYpare take a look at why it’s important to prepare and pray, not one or the other. The B.U.I.L.D Project is itself built upon 5 key bricks: B: Begin with Family. Making a positive change starts at home, and if we can’t even reconcile with those to whom we are bonded by blood then how can we ever expect to actualize our own goals and desires? U: Understand your Ministry. This is where we get in touch with our lord and savior and unpack our own relationship with him and the house in which he presides. It’s vital that we have a comprehensive understanding of how the church impacts our lives, and equally important to know how to balance it with every other moving part of being a human. I: Implement Better Health. Healthy body, healthy mind, healthy soul. These are three core building blocks for a happier, more fulfilling life, and unsurprisingly, they all inform one another. Ensuring that we feel our best physically, mentally, and spiritually is key to achieving real progress. L: Lead in Business. This is where you get down to brass tax to begin implementing the teachings in this text. With empathy and knowledge of self, you will be more capable than ever to tackle the dog-eat-dog world of business and finance. D: Develop a Better Financial Life. Life does not begin and end with money, but without it, there’s not much good we can do for the kingdom. Taking everything you’ve learned from the project so far and using it to secure a more stable future is the best way to set yourself up for success personally and as a contributor to others.

It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover Summary

In this “brave and heartbreaking novel that digs its claws into you and doesn’t let go, long after you’ve finished it” (Anna Todd, New York Times bestselling author) from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of All Your Perfects, a workaholic with a too-good-to-be-true romance can’t stop thinking about her first love. Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town where she grew up—she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. And when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life seems too good to be true. Ryle is assertive, stubborn, maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily. And the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn’t hurt. Lily can’t get him out of her head. But Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his “no dating” rule, she can’t help but wonder what made him that way in the first place. As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan—her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened. An honest, evocative, and tender novel, It Ends with Us is “a glorious and touching read, a forever keeper. The kind of book that gets handed down” (USA TODAY).

Start with Why by Simon Sinek Summary

The inspiring, life-changing bestseller by the author of LEADERS EAT LAST and TOGETHER IS BETTER. In 2009, Simon Sinek started a movement to help people become more inspired at work, and in turn inspire their colleagues and customers. Since then, millions have been touched by the power of his ideas, including more than 28 million who’ve watched his TED Talk based on START WITH WHY -- the third most popular TED video of all time. Sinek starts with a fundamental question: Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their success over and over? People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers had little in common, but they all started with WHY. They realized that people won't truly buy into a product, service, movement, or idea until they understand the WHY behind it. START WITH WHY shows that the leaders who've had the greatest influence in the world all think, act, and communicate the same way -- and it's the opposite of what everyone else does. Sinek calls this powerful idea The Golden Circle, and it provides a framework upon which organizations can be built, movements can be led, and people can be inspired. And it all starts with WHY.

Virgil and his Translators by Susanna Braund,Zara Martirosova Torlone Summary

This is the first volume to offer a critical overview of the long and complicated history of translations of Virgil from the early modern period to the present day, transcending traditional studies of single translations or particular national traditions in isolation to offer an insightful comparative perspective. The twenty-nine essays in the collection cover numerous European languages - from English, French, and German, to Greek, Irish, Italian, Norwegian, Slovenian, and Spanish - but also look well beyond Europe to include discussion of Brazilian, Chinese, Esperanto, Russian, and Turkish translations of Virgil. While the opening two contributions lay down a broad theoretical and comparative framework, the majority conduct comparisons within a particular language and combine detailed case studies with in-depth contextualization and theoretical background, showing how the translations discussed are embedded in their own cultures and historical moments. The final two essays are written from the perspective of contemporary translators, closing out the volume with a profound assessment not only of the influence exerted by the major Roman poet on later literature, but also why translation of a canonical author such as Virgil matters, not only as a national and transnational cultural phenomenon, but as a personal engagement with a literature of enduring power and relevance.

The Mind of the Guru by Rajiv Mehrotra Summary

In The Mind of the Guru, Rajiv Mehrotra presents dialogues with several contemporary sages and masters who have illumined the minds of millions around the world. Ranged here are gurus as diverse as B. K. S. Iyengar, who brought yoga from the world of the esoteric to our living rooms; Swami Ramdev, who has democratized yoga via television; and Mata Amritanandamayi, whose mere presence invokes an overwhelming awareness of love. There is Deepak Chopra discussing a quantum healing of mind and body, Sogyal Rinpoche encouraging us to look at death so that we might live a better life and Sri Sri Ravi Shankar reaffirming each person’s right and access to happiness. And there is the unique and contrary voice of U. G. Krishnamurti telling us that all talk of transformation is poppycock. There are no grand narratives or final solutions, only guides who can show the way to the light within. Here you learn from voices as diverse as that of Thich Nhat Hanh, Bishop Desmond Tutu, Baba Amte and Stanislav Grof. Underlying the dialogues is their wisdom on how we can make ourselves unhappy – and guidance on how we can turn our lives around to achieve happiness.

Do-It-Yourself Democracy by Caroline W. Lee Summary

Citizen participation has undergone a radical shift since anxieties about "bowling alone" seized the nation in the 1990s. Many pundits and observers have cheered America's twenty-first century civic renaissance-an explosion of participatory innovations in public life. Invitations to "have your say!" and "join the discussion!" have proliferated. But has the widespread enthusiasm for maximizing citizen democracy led to real change? In Do-It-Yourself Democracy, sociologist Caroline W. Lee examines how participatory innovations have reshaped American civic life over the past two decades. Lee looks at the public engagement industry that emerged to serve government, corporate, and nonprofit clients seeking to gain a handle on the increasingly noisy demands of their constituents and stakeholders. The beneficiaries of new forms of democratic empowerment are not only humble citizens, but also the engagement experts who host the forums. Does it matter if the folks deepening democracy are making money at it? How do they make sense of the contradictions inherent in their roles? In investigating public engagement practitioners' everyday anxieties and larger worldviews, we see reflected the strange meaning of power in contemporary institutions. New technologies and deliberative practices have democratized the ways in which organizations operate, but Lee argues that they have also been marketed and sold as tools to facilitate cost-cutting, profitability, and other management goals - and that public deliberation has burdened everyday people with new responsibilities without delivering on its promises of empowerment.

Tacit Agreements by Timothy M. Zuverink Summary

For Glenn Ruisdael, life isn’t turning out quite the way he expected. At thirty-three, he’s alone once more, living in the small town in Michigan where he was raised, chronically depressed and working a job that’s below his abilities. He spends his days merely drifting along, drinking too much, and feeling like a failure—but things are about to change. His grandmother, Sandra, has died, leaving him and his estranged brother, Martin, very wealthy. He has also inherited keys to two private rooms at the family mansion—one, the sole domain of his grandfather, and the other, that of his grandmother. As he explores these rooms and discovers the truth, he is forced to admit that idols all have their feet of clay. But he also comes to realize that saints can be found in the most unlikely of places. Checkered as his own past is, Glenn knows that the time has come to deal with his personal demons. He misses Gideon, his ex-lover in Minneapolis, an unconventionally spiritual man who challenged the core values by which he’d been living. Glenn also realizes the time has come to try to reconnect with his brother. Martin, after all, is the only family he has left. Glenn knows he is at an important crossroads in life, and the path he chooses now will have repercussions reaching far into his future.

The Princess Casamassima (1886) by Henry James Summary

This early work by Henry James was originally published in 1886 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. Henry James was born in New York City in 1843. One of thirteen children, James had an unorthodox early education, switching between schools, private tutors and private reading.. James published his first story, ‘A Tragedy of Error’, in the Continental Monthly in 1864, when he was twenty years old. In 1876, he emigrated to London, where he remained for the vast majority of the rest of his life, becoming a British citizen in 1915. From this point on, he was a hugely prolific author, eventually producing twenty novels and more than a hundred short stories and novellas, as well as literary criticism, plays and travelogues. Amongst James's most famous works are The Europeans (1878), Daisy Miller (1878), Washington Square (1880), The Bostonians (1886), and one of the most famous ghost stories of all time, The Turn of the Screw (1898). We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

The First Major by John Feinstein Summary

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Good Walk Spoiled, a dramatic chronicle of the bitterly-fought 2016 Ryder Cup pitting a U.S. team out for revenge against the Europeans determined to keep the Cup out of American hands. Coming into 2016, the Americans had lost an astounding six out of the last seven Ryder Cup matches, and tensions were running high for the showdown that took place in October, 2016 in Hazeltine, Minnesota, just days after American legend Arnold Palmer had died. What resulted was one of the most raucous and heated three days in the Cup's long history. Award-winning author John Feinstein takes readers behind the scenes, providing an inside view of the dramatic stories as they unfolded: veteran Phil Mickelson's two-year roller-coaster as he upended the American preparation process and helped assemble a superb team; superstar Rory McIlroy becoming the clear-cut emotional leader of the European team, and his reasons for wanting to beat the US team so badly this time around; the raucous matches between McIlroy and American Patrick Reed - resulting in both incredible golf, and several moments that threatened to come to blows; the return of Tiger Woods not as a player but an assistant captain, and his obsession with helping the US win - which was never the case when he was playing. John Feinstein's classic bestseller, A Good Walk Spoiled, set the bar for golf books. Now Feinstein provides his unique take on the Ryder Cup, which has clearly become golf's most intense and emotional event...it's 'first Major.'

The Diary of Samuel Pepys f by Samuel Pepys Summary

Although the Diary of Samuel Pepys has been in the hands of the public for nearly seventy years, it has not hitherto appeared in its entirety. In the original edition of 1825 scarcely half of the manuscript was printed. Lord Braybrooke added some passages as the various editions were published, but in the preface to his last edition he wrote: “there appeared indeed no necessity to amplify or in any way to alter the text of the Diary beyond the correction of a few verbal errors and corrupt passages hitherto overlooked.” The public knew nothing as to what was left unprinted, and there was therefore a general feeling of gratification when it was announced some eighteen years ago that a new edition was to be published by the Rev. Mynors Bright, with the addition of new matter equal to a third of the whole. It was understood that at last the Diary was to appear in its entirety, but there was a passage in Mr. Bright’s preface which suggested a doubt respecting the necessary completeness. He wrote: “It would have been tedious to the reader if I had copied from the Diary the account of his daily work at the office.” As a matter of fact, Mr. Bright left roughly speaking about one-fifth of the whole Diary still unprinted, although he transcribed the whole, and bequeathed his transcript to Magdalene College.

ANZAC The Play by Mary Anneeta Mann Summary

Most of the characters in this play are taken from real life. When war was declared in 1914, Charters Towers was a happy, carefree but tough pioneering town where all hands were needed on the land. However most of the young men go to war, traveling first to Gallipoli on the coast of Turkey. They were decimated there. The survivors and new recruits were sent to France. Before leaving, Pal , torn between love of country and the call to fight for liberty for all the world, meets Madeline, an aboriginal girl from the Dreamtime who decides to follow him through the powers bequeathed her by the great Earth Mother Eingana. Liberty presents herself to Pal during the war reviving him as the Eternal Soldier each time he is killed. Pal’s brother Fred also enlists and is killed on Gallipoli. In Charters Towers Fred’s love Jessica dies in childbirth. Mother, Father and daughter Millicent together with their friends, Kate, Ilene and Kitty try to go on with their lives. Young Pal, Fred’s son is raised by all these women but enlists in the second world war and is killed at Dunkirk but not before he and his English love Kathleen have conceived their child during the London Blitz. Kathleen carrying the pendant that Young Pal had made for Kate and returned to him upon his enlistment, travels to Charters Towers to deliver their baby with Kate. He is called Boy Pal. Pal, the eternal soldier, travels the world, receiving many visions of a global Eternal Justice who will eventually arbitrate the Peace and World Commonwealth who will preserve it. Pal returns to Gallipoli experiencing the continuing conflict between Death and Liberty. He secures the keys for Peace, returns to Charters Towers and gives them to Boy Pal and a young Madeline as they both receive the covenants.

Homespun Gospel by Todd M. Brenneman Summary

In popular evangelical literature, God is loving and friendly, described in heartfelt, often saccharine language that evokes nostalgia, comfortable domesticity, and familial love. This emotional style has been widely adopted by the writers most popular among American evangelicals, including such celebrity pastors as Max Lucado, Rick Warren, and Joel Osteen. Todd M. Brenneman provides groundbreaking insight into the phenomenon of evangelical sentimentality: an emotional appeal to readers' feelings about familial relationships, which can in turn be used as the basis for a relationship with God. Brenneman shows how evangelicals use tropes of God as father, human beings as children, and nostalgia for an imagined idyllic home life to provide alternate sources of social authority, intended to help evangelicals survive a culture that is philosophically at odds with conservative Christianity. Yet Brenneman also demonstrates that the sentimental focus on individual emotion and experience can undermine the evangelical agenda. Sentimentality is an effective means of achieving individual conversions, but it also promotes a narcissism that blinds evangelicals to larger social forces and impedes their ability to bring about the change they seek. Homespun Gospel offers a compelling perspective on an unexplored but vital aspect of American evangelical identity.

The Glory Walk by James R. Wilkes Summary

The Glory Walk is a brief work explaining to Christians what living for God's glory is all about. It is a summons to believers to live in the bigger picture of God's kingdom with God's purposes in view. We must face the reality that western culture is man-centered, that one's natural tendencies are toward self-glory, and that the grace of God is what is deeply needed to fulfill our purposes in God's created order. Christians need to be God-centered, oriented by the truth of God's Word, focused on the gospel, and completely dependent on God. We must see clearly that our God is infinitely glorious. Thus, He is worthy to receive our worship and praise. The believer's duty is to live intentionally for God's glory alone. However, duty must not carry with it the idea of drudgery. Instead, by God's grace, we delight in him and desire his glory to be known. The teachings in The Glory Walk call believers to the joyful life of exalting Christ!
