There is a biblically-revealed, sequential plan of God for the duration of every human life, the knowledge of which should profoundly impact and enliven each one of us who is able to understand and embrace it in a heartfelt way. The purpose of this book, therefore, is to inform readers of God’s plans for, and claims upon, human beings, from before their birth and continuing through their existence to the final judgment and beyond. Each reader can then seriously consider their way of life now in view of the things to come. The author identifies seven sequential stages in every person’s life journey, the majority of which occur beyond the grave. Written shortly before its writer passed away, this little book nonetheless exudes a spirit of joy as its author, his sufferings notwithstanding, leaned forward, full of expectation and without fear, into the glorious future promised to everyone who loves and serves their Lord Jesus now. Rakestraw shares the secret to investing a brief earthly life well. Like the venerable John Bunyan, writer of the devotional classic Pilgrim’s Progress, Rakestraw points the way to our eternal home.
If we do not make a real effort to understand some of the behaviors of care-dependent clients, we not only miss out on the opportunity to meet the underlying need and truly resolve the issue, but we also might actually cause much greater harm to those for whom we are caring; the hurt of not truly being heard and seen, which leads to deep-seated loneliness. In this book, Geert takes you by the hand and gently walks you toward a whole new level of thinking and approaching situations, and at the end you will find yourself armed with a wealth of possibilities (as long as you allow your mind to shift remain receptive). This book gives a voice to all those who are dependent on others and, in a way, also to ourselves, as one day it might be we who need compassionate care.
Gypsies arouse strong passions, but there is growing interest in who they are, where they come from and how they have survived centuries of discrimination. This is the only general introduction to the struggle of Gypsies to survive as a people in Britain today. The illustrations show the reality of life now that caravans have replaced bender tents and vardoes (horse drawn caravans). Gypsies are often 'moved on' by the police but a new generation hopes for a better future. The title of the book is taken from a poem by a Gypsy girl studying for a law degree. A profile of the Gypsy community, their origin, how they work and where they live, including refugees from eastern Europe and the Balkans, is followed by chapters on the Kale of Wales (who spoke pure Romani until recently), the Nawkens of Scotland and, more controversially, New (Age) Travellers.
The last person Shelby Ryan expects to run into is Iris Calhoun, the sister of the man who killed her wife four years and three thousand miles ago. Shelby hasn’t seen Iris since the day Iris testified in court to put her brother behind bars. When Iris becomes an administrator at Hopewell, the local nursing home where Shelby volunteers, avoiding her becomes impossible. Seeing Iris causes her grief to resurface, and she relies on her father and friends to help her through. There’s no way she would consider falling for anyone related to a murderer. Iris believed her brother deserved a life behind bars, even if her family considers her a traitor. But then he was killed by a fellow inmate only months later, and Iris has struggled to forgive herself. Shelby and Iris know the best thing to do is stay away from each other, but neither of them is prepared for the instant attraction they feel. Can they put their horrific pasts behind them and move forward together?
It’s not many children who have had the privilege to say that he or she was a true Pikler baby. But Ágnes Szántó-Féder, was not only such a child, but also one who had an ongoing relationship – working and otherwise - with the celebrated pediatrician, Dr. Emmi Pikler (1902-1984). Indeed, Ágnes had been so profoundly affected by the woman who revolutionized infant and early childhood care that she, too, devoted her life’s work to the philosophy known as the Pikler® Pedagogical Approach. This book will allow the reader to see infants and young children through a lens of competence. Because of this singular approach, youngsters are not coerced or forced to be – or to become - anyone other than who they truly are. This, in a nutshell, is the core Piklerian philosophy, something that is so very simple yet also undeniably deep. Ágnes’s acute observational skills guide the reader to understand at a much greater level, what freedom and autonomy actually means for an infant. One of the author’s answers lies in the power of “balance; balance (in physical sense) of the infant in their self-initiated gross motor development, and balance in their caring and nurturing relationship with the adult who cares for them.” This jewel of a book should be required reading for any parent, policy maker, early childcare professional or any such person advocating for the health of young children around the world...

House moving has recently been pushed to the forefront of preservation efforts as an alternative to demolition. When the choice becomes to either move a historically significant building away from its original physical and cultural landscape, or see history torn down and buried away in our ever-growing landfills, relocation can be the preferred option. Aggressive residential and business developments have forced preservationists, historical commissions, and concerned citizens to act by moving historic homes in an effort to save them from destruction. What is involved in moving a house? Where does one begin? Most importantly, what will it cost? Moving a House with Preservation in Mind can be used as a reference book by anyone contemplating a house move, whether historic or non-historic, as they decide whether to undertake such a complex project. The book examines the process of moving a house step by step, from the planning stage through cost analysis, funding availability, moving options, and the physical move. A detailed case study illustrates the importance of house moving in preservation, and the final chapter provides briefer examples of several house moves across the U.S. and the various obstacles each encountered. Written by a structural engineer specializing in building relocation projects with a background and active role in historic preservation, Moving a House with Preservation in Mind uses clear text and insightful photographs to make technical issues easily accessible. Peter Paravalos explores a variety of move types, underscoring the important dos and don'ts that will help to make your project a success.
Written without technical jargon, this book will provide a stimulating and useful guide to teachers and student-teachers looking to improve their knowledge of the moving image and its place in the English curriculum.
Why this book? Barack Obamas life has been the subject of endless news reports, blogs, memoirs, and case histories. And yet at a deeper personal level, he has remained an enigma, a riddle, a person shrouded in mystery and mystique. There is a need for something definite and specific: a constructive setting forth of reality and truth. That reality and truth is embalmed in the antiseptic pages of this book.
