Everything changes the day you discover you're going to be a mom. It's not just yourself that you think about—you have a child to care for, too. While you wouldn't trade your child for the world, some days are just hard. Baby-daddy drama, dealing with your parents, and worries about school, work, and your future slam you. Your friends can't relate to your little family, and you wonder if God has turned His back on you, too. Tricia Goyer understands. A mom at age 17, Tricia remembers what it felt like to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. She's also been the coordinator of a teen mom support group for over twelve years, and she's cheered on many young moms—from all walks of life—through their journey. In Teen Mom, Tricia pours out her heart and shares advice for the hard things you face. She also longs to provide encouragement, reminding you that you can be the mom your child deserves—not in your own strength, but in the strength God provides.
Presentation Basics tackles a subject that often frightens and even incapacitates many otherwise confident people giving a presentation. The simple, step-by-step approach guides readers through the entire process from preparation, to creating the right environment, to recovery when things go wrong in a presentation (an inevitable occurrence for even the most prepared and confident presenter). Readers will find dozens of solid suggestions on improving presentation skills by following a series of recurring icons throughout the book that function as a learning road map of essential knowledge for both new and occasional presenters."
The Apostle John prayed for those who were following Jesus that they would prosper even as their souls prospered. How can we ensure our soul's prosperity? Has God given us a model to follow? Is it possible that ancient truths were confirmed in the teaching and practices of those who wrote the New Testament to see people live healthy, free, and Spirit led lives? Are you ready to engage in a prayer life that has a greater impact upon your life and the lives of those around you? There are many good intensions that go along with a daily devotional life, but what we do and how we do it can hinder our progress. The keys discribed in this book not only prepare you to pray with greater confidence before God, but bring refreshing to your soul so that the life Jesus promised is the one you are experiencing!
Here's the problem: 17 million Americans suffer from heart disease, and every year 1 million of them will be just lucky enough to survive a heart attack. They know they must change their lives—their diet, their stress, the amount of exercise they do. And not for a few months, but forever. Most don't do it. What they need, as much as low-fat recipes and fitness plans, is daily motivation—a reassuring yet no-nonsense guide to staying the course to heart health. Here's the solution: From Joseph C. Piscatella, one of the longest-surviving bypass patients in the U.S.—31 years and counting—comes a supportive, generous, think-positive book that shares the secret of his extraordinary success. This is the stuff that kept Joe going—a year-long selection of motivational stories, inspirations, quotes, wisdom, meditations, tips, and more. When it's 5:00 A.M. and raining outside and you're tempted to skip that morning jog, remember "runner" Bob Ireland, a Vietnam vet who lost both legs in the war yet finished the New York marathon using only his arms, the first person ever to do so. Think little things don't make a difference? Take a lesson from golf: An average of less than 1.5 strokes per round in the 2002 season made a $5.6 million difference in earnings between #1 golfer (Tiger Woods) and #10 golfer (Sergio Ggarcia). And why a book of everyday entries? "People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing—that's why we recommend it daily."—Zig Ziglar.
