Inside Book:

What if you fasted regret? What if your friends fasted comparison? What if your generation fasted escapism? What if your community fasted spectatorship? Trigger a spiritual revolution with this daily devotional for Lent. Decrease life's unnecessary details and increase your relationship with the Lord so you can live in awe of Christ's resurrection! 40 Days of Decrease is a guide for those hungering for a fresh Lenten/Easter experience. Dr. Alicia Britt Chole guides you through a study of Jesus’ uncommon and uncomfortable call to abandon the world’s illusions, embrace His kingdom’s realities, and journey cross-ward and beyond. Containing readings, refection questions, daily fasts, ancient quotes, and more, each day offers a meaningful consideration of Jesus’ journey and then invites you into a daily fast of heart-clutter—the stuff that sticks to your soul and weighs you down. You can begin your forty-day journey any time of the year, but you may find it especially meaningful as a Lenten preparation to live in awe of Jesus’ resurrection. Each daily, 1000-word entry includes a: Devotion based on Jesus’ life Reflection question to guide journaling or group discussion Heart fast to inspire a tangible response Thought-provoking Lenten quote Optional sidebar into the historical development of Lent Suggested reading that takes you from John 12 to John 21 Journaling space for reflection In the same way self cannot satisfy self no matter how long it feasts, self cannot starve self no matter how long it fasts. Decrease—like increase—is only holy when its destination is love. Dare to live awed by Christ’s resurrection!

Book Summary:

A shocking and hopeful account of one woman's extraordinary courage to face her past and embrace truth in order to help others find hope and healing In The Relentless Courage of a Scared Child, Tana Amen shares her incredible story of transformation—of growing up in poverty, a bullied latch-key kid raised on sugary cereal and junk food, to becoming a world-renowned food and fitness expert. Her challenging past of neglect, poverty, sexual abuse, thyroid cancer, and bouts of anxiety and depression set her on a path to find healing. Through her remarkable journey, we see more clearly the light that can shine through our own broken places and ultimately heal us: body, mind, and soul. At once tragic and heartwarming, Tana’s story integrates cutting-edge psychology and proven wellness techniques from the Amen Clinics in a moving exploration of the healing available to each one of us, no matter the pain in our past. “What a journey! With in-your-face honesty, Tana reveals how she was able to turn her pain into purpose. For anyone who has been faced with unspeakable loss, this message is so important.” —Jay Shetty, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Like a Monk, storyteller, purpose coach, and former monk

Book Summary:

Is God lost? Many of us feel that way. It’s as if God’s gone missing, out in the universe somewhere—and we must pick up the hunt, following any trail of breadcrumbs he may have left to go out and find him. We speak of “searching for God,” “exploring spirituality,” and “finding faith.” But what if we have it backward? What if God is the one pursuing us? What if our job is not to go out and find God, but simply to stop running and hiding? Not to earn God’s love, but to receive it? Not to turn on the light, but to step out of the shadows? Jesus reveals a God on the prowl, pursuing us, hunting down his world for reconciliation. And the question we’re left with is not whether we’ve pursued hard enough, searched long enough, or jumped high enough . . . The question is, “Do we want to be found?”

Book Summary:

One of the most wonderful things about walking with God is that we can have an intimate and real relationship with him. He wants us to know him so well that we are comfortable talking to him about anything and everything. Yet, there are times when we feel disconnected and insecure. We desire to grow in prayer, but we don't know where to begin, what to say, or how to listen for his voice. In She Prays, Debbie Lindell invites you on a 31-day journey to experience a confident and conversational relationship with your heavenly Father. She shows you how to replace the pressure to perform in prayer with a faith-filled expectation--trusting that God is delighted with every conversation and every word we whisper to him. Her desire is that your soul will be transformed as your confidence in prayer grows, and that your faith will be strengthened as you see God work through your prayers in ways you never imagined possible.

Book Summary:

Nathan Foster was just a child when his father's classic Celebration of Discipline brought the spiritual disciplines into the popular evangelical consciousness. More than thirty years later, Nathan made his own journey into the spiritual disciplines. As he sought day by day to develop habits that would enable him to live more like Jesus, he encountered problems both universal and unique. In this engaging narrative, he draws insights from saints of old to uncover fresh ways of living for the contemporary, postmodern Christian. Through his successes, struggles, and failures, Foster invites readers on a journey of freedom, pain, frustration, and ultimately joy as he learns to rise above selfish desires, laugh at his own failures, and fall in love with God. Those who have read Celebration of Discipline will find in Nathan's book creative new ways to practice the disciplines that have been so formative in their lives. Those who are new to the spiritual disciplines will find that developing a vital, interactive, conversational relationship with God is within their grasp. As a result, the holy habits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control are truly possible for all. Includes chapter openings and a foreword from Richard J. Foster.

Fight for Ustakes couples on an inspiring journey into the challenges of battling for their marriage, through gut-wrenching times of despair, and then finally to the victory of a renewed relationship grounded in Jesus.

Utilizing narrative elements from the real-life story of Chad and Kathy Robichaux, readers will learn how Chad's deployments to Afghanistan as a Marine--and subsequent career as an MMA fighter--allowed him to disengage from his emotions, his marriage, and his children. Then, when his crippling PTSD brought him to brink of suicide, Kathy's pastor taught him the "five rounds" of fighting that are necessary in the battle for any marriage: Believe that God loves you and has a purpose for your life. Take responsibility for your actions. Accept that you can't change the evils that you've encountered. Access God's power. Put yourself second. At the end of the rounds, readers will discover God's design for marriage, which saved Chad and Kathy's relationship. Today, they aim to pay it forward and share what they've learned with other couples. Fight for Us features application sections, discussion prompts, affirmations, and Bible verses, all designed to help readers apply the book's key marriage principles.

Increasing investment in interdisciplinary somnology and sleep medicine research training and mentoring activities.

  • File Pdf: chasing-a-god-you-don-t-want-to-catch.pdf

Book Summary:

We Are So Quick to Say We Want “More” of God, but Is That Really True? As strange as it may sound, the most misunderstood, misrepresented, and potentially the most feared person in Christianity may very well be God Himself. Even seasoned Christians often view God as frightening, untrustworthy, and distant. But nothing could be further from the truth. Author and filmmaker Darren Wilson takes a funny yet poignant romp through Scripture, revealing a long-time Christian’s hang-ups and fears of a God he was supposed to love. Wilson looks at questions such as: Is God selfish, silent, distant, and constantly disappointed in you? How do you love someone you can’t see and who has the power to punish you at any moment? How can a loving God throw people into hell simply for not believing in Him? Wilson encourages readers to be honest with themselves and with God. He challenges us to face the things many Christians struggle with but are too afraid to talk about because everyone else seems to have this faith thing figured out. He believes God isn’t afraid of our questions, doubts, fears, or even our anger. The secret to peace and friendship with God lies in understanding who He really is.

  • File Pdf: the-rise-and-decline-of-patriarchal-systems.pdf

Book Summary:

A major new work of feminism on the history and persistence of patriarchal hierarchies from the MacArthur Award-winning economist In this groundbreaking new work, Nancy Folbre builds on a critique and reformulation of Marxian political economy, drawing on a larger body of scientific research, including neoclassical economics, sociology, psychology, and evolutionary biology, to answer the defining question of feminist political economy: why is gender inequality so pervasive? In part, because of the contradictory effects of capitalist development: on the one hand, rapid technological change has improved living standards and increased the scope for individual choice for women; on the other, increased inequality and the weakening of families and communities have reconfigured gender inequalities, leaving caregivers particularly vulnerable. The Rise and Decline of Patriarchal Systems examines why care work is generally unrewarded in a market economy, calling attention to the non-market processes of childbearing, childrearing and the care of other dependents, the inheritance of assets, and the use of force and violence to appropriate both physical and human resources. Exploring intersecting inequalities based on class, gender, age, race/ethnicity, and citizenship, and their implications for political coalitions, it sets a new feminist agenda for the twenty-first century.

Book Summary:

A New York Times bestselling author and Harvard-educated M.D. shows you how to grow new receptors for your seven major metabolic hormones, helping you to lose weight and feel great, fast! When weight loss is your goal, you often don’t think about hormones. But when you develop resistance to the seven major metabolic hormones (cortisol, thyroid, testosterone, growth hormone, leptin, insulin and estrogen), your body is programmed to adjust by raising your hormone levels higher and higher. Since these hormones regulate your metabolism, it will get slower and slower, making you fatter and fatter! The solution is to reprogram your hormonal levels by repairing hormone receptors and growing new ones. In The Body Cure, Dr. Sara Gottfried uses cutting-edge research in a weight-loss and energy program that will reverse hormone resistance in just twenty-one days. As a result, you will boost your metabolism and calorie-burning by growing new and fresh thyroid receptors; increase your weight loss by re-balancing estrogen and progesterone receptors; and reverse your aging by resetting glucocorticoid receptors, for better cortisol processing. For the last twenty years, Harvard–MIT-educated physician Dr. Sara Gottfried has helped thousands of patients address the root hormonal causes of what bothers them most: excess weight, lack of energy, aging and illness. This program is the next generation of her deep understanding of hormonal optimization for rapid weight-loss and better health.

Book Summary:

This book contains the proceedings of the `8th Nitrogen Workshop' which was held at the University of Ghent, Belgium, from 5 to 8 September 1994. Although nitrogen dynamics in different ecosystems have been studied for several decades, new orientations and other emphases have recently emerged. Previously, nitrogen was considered as an essential element mostly in terms of productivity, but now, more emphasis is attached to environmental consequences. More than 100 contributions in this book tackle recent developments within the fields of nitrogen advice systems, plant response to fertilization, immobilization and mobilization, nitrification, denitrification, leaching, ammonia volatilization and biological nitrogen fixation. A large number of papers is devoted to the formation of gaseous nitrogen compounds, while mineralization-immobilization is another topic of important interest. The book also contains the reports of discussion groups on different aspects of the nitrogen cycle.

Book Summary:

The effects of time and temperature on the postharvest quality offruits and vegetables are visually depicted in the Color Atlasof Postharvest Quality of Fruits and Vegetables. Throughhundreds of vibrant color photographs, this unique resourceillustrates how the appearance (e.g., color, shape, defects andinjuries) of fruits and vegetables changes throughout theirpostharvest life and how storage temperature greatly contributes tocritical quality changes. The book’s extensive coverage describes 37 differentfruits and vegetables from different groups that were stored atfive specific temperatures and photographed daily after specifiedelapsed periods of time. Individual fruits and vegetables from the following groups arecovered: subtropical and tropical fruits pome and stone fruits soft fruits and berries cucurbitaceae solanaceous and other fruit vegetables legumes and brassicas stem, leaf and other vegetable and alliums Information is provided about each individual fruit/vegetablesuch as characteristics, quality criteria and composition;recommendations for storage, transport and retail; and effects oftemperature on the visual and compositional quality of eachindividual fruit or vegetable, associated with photos of theappearance at particular times and temperatures. This visualdocumentation shows how important is to handle fruits andvegetables at the right temperature and what happens if therecommendations are not followed. Also shown is the importance ofthe initial harvest quality of the fruit/vegetable and the expectedshelf life as a function of quality at harvest, storage temperatureand storage time. The Color Atlas of Postharvest Quality of Fruits andVegetables will appeal to a diverse group of food industryprofessionals in the areas of processing, distribution, retail,quality control, packaging, temperature control (refrigeratedfacilities or equipment) and marketing as a reference tool and toestablish marketing priority criteria.

Book Summary:

The science of nutrition has advanced beyond expectation since Antoine La voisier as early as the 18th century showed that oxygen was necessary to change nutrients in foods to compounds which would become a part of the human body. He was also the first to measure metabolism and to show that oxidation within the body produces heat and energy. In the two hundred years that have elapsed, the essentiality of nitrogen-containing nutrients and of proteins for growth and maintenance of tissue has been established; the ne cessity for carbohydrates and certain types of fat for health has been docu mented; vitamins necessary to prevent deficiency diseases have been identified and isolated; and the requirement of many mineral elements for health has been demonstrated. Further investigations have defined the role of these nutrients in metabolic processes and quantitated their requirements at various stages of development. Additional studies have involved their use in the possible prevention of, and therapy for, disease conditions.
