"What is wisdom and why do we need it? 

For thousands of years, we?ve tried to answer those two questions. Yet even the most dedicated students often find the path to wisdom daunting.

The Seven Stone Path: An Everyday Journey to Wisdom explores seven archetypal ideas found throughout the world?s wisdom traditions, turning them into tools anyone can use to deepen and enrich their lives. 

The seven ideas are acceptance, surrender, engagement, allowance, enjoyment, love, and integration. The goal of this book is to broaden our understanding of these crucial ideas and root them deeply into our everyday lives. 
Moving toward wisdom is not an esoteric practice reserved only for specialists and insiders. Cultivating wisdom, like breathing, is an innate, natural process available to everyone.

Self regulation helps us concentrate, manage disappointment, reach out to others, and engage in the world. Regulation skills are key to healthy emotions and behavior. On the other hand, when we?re prone to dysregulation, we may experience learning difficulties, poor mental health, and aggression.

?	How does regulation influence the way we feel and behave?
?	What changes regulation for better and for worse?
?	What are common ways we become dysregulated?
?	How do targeted interventions improve our ability to stay regulated?
 
In Regulation from the Inside Out, author Dr. Carolen Hope explores these questions and provides more than forty activities, reflections, and experiences for regulation mastery in children and adults. This guide is organized around three systems and the basic needs that often drive dysregulation: the need to be safe, to be seen, and to be accepted.

Using clear and accessible language, it draws from disciplines like neuroscience, mindfulness, trauma therapies, and movement and exercise research. The suggested activities and strategies are designed to strengthen regulation skills to elicit positive change.

The Deacon?s Handbook is more than just a resource for those serving as deacons and those who aspire to be one.
The fact is that you don?t have to be a deacon to apply principles that God would smile upon. The wisdom in this handbook transcends sex, age, and educational background. In other words, it may be geared for deacons, but it can benefit anyone.
Leonard Gillams, a longtime ordained deacon, observes that while no one is perfect, how we behave informs ourselves, others, and God Himself on how we are measuring up to His Holy standards. He considers questions such as:
How did the deacon?s ministry develop?
How can a deacon effectively interact with a congregation?
How can a deacon build a strong spiritual foundation from which to serve the church?
The author emphasizes that just as God holds deacons responsible for the churches they serve, He also expects them to take care of their families.
Get guidance to succeed at church and at home with wisdom steeped in Scripture and firsthand experience.
Breathe In the Joy reveals my on-going journey as a Soul experiencing a human lifetime. I have shared experiences that enabled me to pull a positive, and there is one, out of every negative.  If you are ready to open to your spiritual path, there is an array of signs and events that you have already experienced that will support your journey.  The ones I have disclosed are common to many and indicate that there is much more to us than our five-sensory perception of life. This is my story of opening to spirit. May it validate yours.
Through a glass darkly is a peculiar phrase. It implies that we can’t comprehend reality through the lens of personal experience. While the Bible offers worthwhile principles for living, it is not a reference of authority to someone who hasn’t acknowledged it as truth. So rather than wrestle with ideology, let’s change the focus and consider ourselves as evidence of a Divine Personality!
Because I Made You That Way presents twelve contentions for the way God designed you to recognize Him. This book offers an explanation for why God made you the way you are—not your flesh and bone, but your mind, will and spirit. Topics are grouped in three sections: How You Were Born, What You Have, and What You Want. In these chapters you’ll find thoughts and ideas that drive home each point with tongue-in-cheek humor along the way.
This book was written for men seeking focus and validation of the Christian message. It is pragmatic, including “Deal With It” study questions to provoke thought and discussion. Because I Made You That Way is a spiritual commentary that explores human nature and the way that perceptions influence a man’s world view. Ultimately it attests that human nature directs us to the personality of God.

"WARNING

	Be prepared to be amused by the odd ways of the characters here portrayed in the first section of the book devoted to Limericks.

	Be prepared to feel sympathy for their mishaps and trials.

	But especially be prepared  to be shocked by their goings-on and shenanigans - the forger, the glutton, the cheat, the drunkard, the proud, the greedy, the slothful, the unfaithful, the exhibitionist, the sex-mad, the dominatrix, the cougar, the transsexual, the transvestite, the masochist, the homosexual and many more. 
 
	However also enjoy the more gentle humour of the later lengthier works set both in the UK and Australia which include homage to the Australian love of sport and the beach as well as a sad childhood tale."
Inspired by her former pastor, Robert (Bob) Greene, who closed church services with beautifully prepared prayers, Melissa began to compose her own prayers for a church bible study group.
