Horses inhabit our dreams, carrying us to safety or on wild adventures. Some of our dream horses fly, others have magical powers. Whatever our dreams of horses might be, they inhabit a universe of freedom and power. They also involve a lot of work, care and sacrifice. Horses and riders achieve great heights, some in jumping, some in dressage, some on endurance rides. This anthology explores the meaning of horses -- and some donkeys -- in the lives of women from many places. They walk, trot, canter, gallop and fly. And some refuse to budge. Horses inspire boldness and trust and provide us with the means to be transported into other realms, to fulfil our girldreams, our horsedreams.

For the first time, you can now get all three novels in Stephen Bly’s Horse Dreams Series together in one trilogy book. In the first novel of this series, Memories of a Dirt Road, we meet Develyn Worrell. Develyn, or Devvy for short, is a fifth-grade schoolteacher from southern Indiana who is broken-hearted about her husband's death and her daughter's decision not to come home for the summer. To clear her mind, Devvy decides to find a little dirt road town in Wyoming where she vacationed as a child. She fondly remembers the quaintness of the small town, the beautiful sunsets, and an remarkable Roan horse that has captivated her dreams ever since. Desperately wanting to experience that peace and tranquility again, Devvy embarks on a journey to find the town. When she arrives, she purchases her very own Roan mare, rents a little cabin with an incredible sunset view, and watches as God brings three very important men into her life. In the second part of the Horse Dreams Series trilogy, The Mustang Breaker, heavy-hearted Develyn Worrell’s mood is changing as she begins to escape the worries of her past and enjoy the equine charms of her picture-perfect small Wyoming town. It is there that the Lord’s leading is beginning to become clear, even as cowboy romances and the relationship with her grown daughter get more complicated. In the third and final installment of the Horse Dreams trilogy, soul-searching Develyn Worrell has finally found her groove. Ready to savor the end of summer in small town Wyoming, she settles in to enjoy “end of summer” peace and contentment. That is, until her daughter pays a visit, an eclectic friend plans to marry, a suspicious stranger enters the picture, and a dear mentor suffers a heart attack. Just as she begins to feel as if the world is closing in on her once again, the steady friendship of Cooper Tallon comes to her rescue. He may lack the charm and flash of other cowboys, but he always seems to have just what Develyn's heart needs. As her relationship with Cooper blooms and her faith and trust in the Lord grows, she looks forward to the unwritten chapters of her life.

Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich BWL - Didaktik, Wirtschaftspadagogik, Note: 2,5, Padagogische Hochschule Freiburg im Breisgau, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die [...] Problematik der oftmals unerwunschten Ubernahmen und Fusionen als Folge der Wirtschaftskrise betrifft derzeit sehr viele Unternehmen und ist aktueller denn je. Dies betrifft sowohl die Mitarbeiter als auch die Konzernleitungen. Allein die Entscheidung fur eine Fusion oder Ubernahme garantiert noch lange nicht den erhofften Erfolg. Eine Fusion ist sehr viel komplexer und geht uber den Horizont einer einzelnen Fuhrungskraft hinaus. Bei der Veranderung eines Unternehmens im Umfang einer Ubernahme mussen nicht nur sehr unterschiedliche Unternehmenskulturen zusammengefuhrt werden, sondern auch die komplette Aufbau- und Ablaufstruktur zweier Organisationen aufeinander abgestimmt werden. Ein haufig beobachtetes Phanomen, das laut vieler Wirtschaftsexperten der Grund fur das Scheitern solcher Vorhaben ist, ist die eindimensionale Sichtweise der Manager und Entscheidungstrager, aus der die Unterschatzung der Reichweite ihrer Beschlusse fur die Anpassungsleistungen der Belegschaft resultiert. Eine Fusion oder Ubernahme umfasst alle Bereiche und Ebenen eines Unternehmens und kann nur dann fur alle erfolgreich und gewinnbringend sein, wenn sich (im Idealfall) jeder einzelne Mitarbeiter mit der geplanten Veranderung identifizieren kann und die Moglichkeit hat, den Veranderungsprozess ein Stuck weit aktiv mitzugestalten beziehungsweise zu verstehen. Um dies zu gewahrleisten, muss das Management die notige Transparenz schaffen. Nach dieser kurzen Darstellung der Probleme und Schwierigkeiten, die sich derzeit fur eine Vielzahl von Unternehmern aufgrund finanzieller Schwierigkeiten ergeben, stellt sich die Frage: Welche Moglichkeiten oder Konzepte gibt es fur den erfolgreichen Umgang mit Veranderungen, sowie fur die Gestaltung und Durchfuhrung des eigentlichen Prozesses? Ein solches Konzept sollte also nic

""Why do you have to nag so much?"" Dad yelled across the living room at Mom. ""You know the divorce is final, and this is the last time we will do anything together as a family, so just let it alone!"" My heart squeezed as the power of Dad's words rang out clear through the walls and thrust daggers at my chest. Feeling dizzy, I grabbed for the bedpost and quickly surveyed my best friends' eyes all wide with surprise, as they heard, just like me, this shocking news for the very first time. I wanted to run and scurry into the nearest hole. But before going down, I took a long deliberate breath and struggled to display my last ounce of courage. Having just shared her dreams and plans with friends, of racing her horse Medallion up the bluebonnet covered hills near her beloved home, Becky's birthday celebration comes to an abrupt halt. Triggered by the announcement of her parents' divorce, her peaceful life begins to collapse one step at a time like a shaky row of dominos all lined up and destined to fall. Becky must then find the courage to reach beyond herself for the help both she and her palomino will need to survive.
