Love Mercy: A Mother and Daughter's Journey from the American Dream to the Kingdom of God

by Lisa Samson Ty Samson

In Love Mercy: A Mother and Daughter's Journey from the American Dream to the Kingdom of God, having lived a life of plenty in suburban America, Lisa Samson and her eighteen-year-old daughter, Ty, thought they were traveling to Africa to minister to the people and chronicle the AIDS crisis devastating the continent. Their trip, they assumed, would be missional, merciful, giving. Instead, they experienced a life-changing, soul-rattling journey. As mother and daughter are confronted with incidents of child prostitution, preventable illness, poverty, oppression, abuse, and death so prevalent it leaves no time to mourn … their journey takes a decidedly different tack. Love Mercy confronts us directly with the AIDS crisis in Africa—in particular Swaziland, which has the highest AIDS rate in the world and where the average life expectancy is thirty-two years of age. Offering two unique perspectives, Lisa and Ty share the questions they encountered on their journey and tell the stories of those they met along the way—from the children themselves, to adult AIDS victims, to the compassionate mercy-givers who seek every day to alleviate their suffering. Smiles in a place of aching sadness. Mercy in a place of heart-wrenching poverty. Two people transformed by God in ways, and places, they never expected, discovering that even in a land riddled with heartache … Christ’s love and redemption are ablaze. This Love Mercy Ebook download is designed to be read on a personal computer, smart phone, or other dedicated Ebook hardware device.

Love Nest

by Andrew Coburn

The New York Times said of Andrew Coburn, "Natural storytellers are not too common, but Mr. Coburn is one. " And Publishers Weekly praised his previous novel Sweetheart as "so good that it is almost criminal. " Love Nest, Andrew Coburn's gripping new thriller, is certain to gain the same critical acclaim. The murder of a young and alluring prostitute is at the core of this compelling story of small-town crime, corruption, and desire. In her brief stay in Andover, Massachusetts, her charm and beauty had touched the lives of many of the town's leading citizens, not the least of whom is the investigator of her murder, Sergeant Sonny Dawson. His tenacious search for the killer uncovers a netherworld of characters that shocks his sensibilities but does not dampen his thirst to solve the case. The taut psychological drama, the agonizingly suspenseful plot, and the deft prose that mark Andrew Coburn's writing of Love Nest consolidate his stature and his fictional territory#151;the authentic New England world he has staked out for himself. And in his portrait of a small New England town, Coburn reveals the sophistication and breadth of a most gifted novelist.

Love on a Rotten Day: An Astrological Survival Guide to Romance

by Hazel Dixon-Cooper

The irreverent guide to losing -- or finding -- your true soul mate In love with an obtuse Taurus, a drunk Pisces, or a hotheaded Aries? Forget traditional astrology and visit the maladjusted side of the universe. Love on a Rotten Day debunks myths, reveals flaws, and examines the dubious virtues of every sign, while still showing how to tame the Leo or outwit the Gemini that you're hooked on. In this refreshingly honest guide to love, author Hazel Dixon-Cooper shows you how to: Safely dump a Scorpio Snag a romance-phobic Aquarius Get rid of that clingy Libra Convince a Virgo to have spontaneous sex Make a Sagittarius monogamous Keep a wandering Gemini happy at home It also includes "Fatal Attractions" -- an irreverent sun sign compatibility guide -- and a scorecard for each sign, from Best Bets (in and out of bed) to Just Good Friends. Traditional astrology texts won't tell you how to disentangle your Cancer boyfriend from around your ankles so that you can have a night out with your friends -- but they will tell you that he is a "nurturing homebody." Likewise, they fail to warn you that the sweet nothings your Pisces girlfriend whispers are more her fantasies than actual truth, and that the passionate nature of your Aries lover is confined to on-demand sex and nightly temper tantrums. Luckily, Love on a Rotten Day offers brazenly honest profiles of all the sun signs (including the disagreeable parts) and takes a deeper look into everyone's emotionally mixed-up Moon, Mars, and Venus signs. Author and Cosmopolitan Bedside Astrologer Hazel Dixon-Cooper delivers the goods on the cheaters, manipulators, bullies, brats, nutcases, and nymphos of the zodiac. (Whether this is good or bad, well -- that's up to you.) She also offers helpful tips on how to best use your own inner brat to win those endless games that lovers play. An honest and uproarious guide to losing and finding your true soul mate (and everyone before, after, and in between), Love on a Rotten Day is the perfect book to have handy before you ask anyone "What's your sign?"

Love on the Rocks

by Lori Rotskoff

In this fascinating history of alcohol in postwar American culture, Lori Rotskoff draws on short stories, advertisements, medical writings, and Hollywood films to investigate how gender norms and ideologies of marriage intersected with scientific and popular ideas about drinking and alcoholism. After the repeal of Prohibition in 1933, recreational drinking became increasingly accepted among white, suburban, middle-class men and women. But excessive or habitual drinking plagued many families. How did people view the "problem drinkers" in their midst? How did husbands and wives learn to cope within an "alcoholic marriage"? And how was drinking linked to broader social concerns during the Great Depression, World War II, and the Cold War era?By the 1950s, Rotskoff explains, mental health experts, movie producers, and members of self-help groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon helped bring about a shift in the public perception of alcoholism from "sin" to "sickness." Yet alcoholism was also viewed as a family problem that expressed gender-role failure for both women and men. On the silver screen (in movies such as The Lost Weekend and The Best Years of Our Lives) and on the printed page (in stories by such writers as John Cheever), in hospitals and at Twelve Step meetings, chronic drunkenness became one of the most pressing public health issues of the day.Shedding new light on the history of gender, marriage, and family life from the 1920s through the 1960s, this innovative book also opens new perspectives on the history of leisure and class affiliation, attitudes toward consumerism and addiction, and the development of a therapeutic culture.

The Love Revolution

by Joyce Meyer

Joyce Meyer is not satisfied with the status quo. She believes that we each need to become a revolutionary and practice love every day. And if Joyce has her way, the revolution will spread - person by person, house by house, town by town, until the old culture of selfishness and greed gives way to a new culture of concern for others. The book is a revolutionaries' manual, a hands-on primer for bringing the Golden Rule to life in the twenty-first century. Meyer starts out by giving some stunning statistics. Right now...210,000 children will die this week because of poverty; 640 million children do not have adequate shelter; every day, 3,000 children are abducted into the sex-trafficking industry; every day, 16,000 children die from hunger-related causes. She goes on to say that although crisis is global, the solution is local. We can't solve the world's problems, but that isn't a reason to remain idle. LOVE REVOLUTION focuses on personal behavior on the local scale. It's not just a call to action; it is a call to being: being the person who goes out of your way to encourage someone who's out of hope; being the one who smiles at a stranger; being the one who is willing to do something for nothing. The paradox: when we do something for nothing, what we often get is something far greater.

Love Sense

by Sue Johnson

The bestselling author of Hold Me Tight presents a revolutionary new understanding of why and how we love, based on cutting-edge research. Every day, we hear of relationships failing and questions of whether humans are meant to be monogamous. LOVE SENSE presents new scientific evidence that tells us that humans are meant to mate for life. Dr. Johnson explains that romantic love is an attachment bond, just like that between mother and child, and shows us how to develop our "love sense"--our ability to develop long-lasting relationships. Love is not the least bit illogical or random, but actually an ordered and wise recipe for survival. LOVE SENSE covers the three stages of a relationship and how to best weather them; the intelligence of emotions and the logic of love; the physical and psychological benefits of secure love; and much more. Based on groundbreaking research, LOVE SENSE will change the way we think about love.

Love, Sex, and Disability: The Pleasures of Care

by Sarah Smith Rainey

Rainey (women's studies, Bowling Green State U. , Ohio), whose late partner had multiple sclerosis, presents a study of relationships between disabled and nondisabled partners. Rather than dwell on popular culture and medical perspectives on such relationships, the author examines the complexities of care and sexual intimacy in pre-and post-disability couples in focus groups, in feminist, queer theory, and other postmodern frameworks. She concludes that feminist and disability activists/scholars need to develop new narratives that emphasize equality in such relationships. Methodological notes and an annotated list of the self-representations and articles analyzed are appended.
