As the youngest child of three, Isabella is lucky enough to have a very happy childhood within her close family. The family live a privileged life due to the fact that their dad works very hard and their mum plays the traditional role of a wife and mother. There are many family fun times, and this just makes Isabella want her dream of becoming a mummy just like her own and living a happy life with her adoring husband all the more. Unfortunately, the dream does not turn out as she expects. Her husband does not adore her, there are more tears than laughter, and when the babies come along, she is not as happy as she dreamt she would be. She needs to get out, not only for her own sanity but for her children’s. A long, messy, stressful divorce occurs, and Isabella finds it hard to keep smiling as her children get caught in the mess. Determined to make things better for herself and to become a role model for her children, Isabella becomes a mature student, enrolling on a nursing course, but yet again, Isabella comes up against a wall as her plans do not work out, and she has to choose another route. Growing in confidence after many years of being put down and made to feel worthless, Isabella enrolls and then graduates with an HNC qualification. Beginning her new career as a childcare practitioner is exciting and a role in which she enjoys immensely, until she notices that her health is failing. A shocking diagnosis knocks her confidence back to square one, and little by little Isabella gets back to the confident, ambitious woman she always dreamt she would be. Stepping stones, each one at a time, is how Isabella manages to keep on going whenever her dreams do not work out the way she wants them to.

Now thoroughly revised--with significant changes in chapters dealing with faith and money and environmental issues--Vallet's inspirational study teaches Christians how to gain a sense of purpose, how to properly use resources, talents, and money, and how to reach out with compassion for the welfare of others and for the planet. This inspirational study takes the images of journey and steward as metaphors for the Christian's life and uses several of Jesus' parables as a springboard to explore various dimensions of Christian stewardship. Besides significant revisions to the text, this second edition of Stepping Stones includes a new epilogue that discusses the mission funding crisis of the church in North American and the changing views on both the church and its mission. Thought-provoking questions and suggestions for further reflection appear at the end of each chapter, and a study guide outlines ways to use the book in small-group setting.

The cave art of France’s Dordogne region is world-famous for the mythology and beauty of its remarkable drawings and paintings. These ancient images of lively bison, horses, and mammoths, as well as symbols of all kinds, are fascinating touchstones in the development of human culture, demonstrating how far humankind has come and reminding us of the ties that bind us across the ages. Over more than twenty-five years of teaching and research, Christine Desdemaines-Hugon has become an unrivaled expert in the cave art and artists of the Dordogne region. In her new book she combines her expertise in both art and archaeology to convey an intimate understanding of the “cave experience.” Her keen insights communicate not only the incomparable artistic value of these works but also the near-spiritual impact of viewing them for oneself. Focusing on five fascinating sites, including the famed Font de Gaume and others that still remain open to the public, Stepping-Stones reveals striking similarities between art forms of the Paleolithic and works of modern artists and gives us a unique pathway toward understanding the culture of the Dordogne Paleolithic peoples and how it still touches our lives today.

This book develops the truth that the creation of the family was in God's heart from before the foundations of the world were laid. In this time of tragic breakdown in the family and the moral decline in our society, the Father's passion is to restore and reconcile the family back to Himself and to one another. His plan of restoration can be traced through the blood covenants in the Old Testament right up to the New Covenant, when Jesus came to shed His blood and reconcile us to the Father forever. It is time for the covenants to be reintroduced so that we can live our lives and raise our children to walk in covenant with the Living God. If we receive this revelation, we will no longer walk in fear and insecurity and will pass on this heritage of peace from generation to generation.

Orca Book Publishers is pleased to offer this book as a dual-language (English and Arabic) enhanced ebook with a read-along function. This version is narrated by the author and the translator. This unique picture book was inspired by the stone artwork of Syrian artist Nizar Ali Badr, discovered by chance by Canadian children’s writer Margriet Ruurs. The author was immediately impressed by the strong narrative quality of Mr. Badr’s work, and, using many of Mr. Badr’s already-created pieces, she set out to create a story about the Syrian refugee crisis. Stepping Stones tells the story of Rama and her family, who are forced to flee their once-peaceful village to escape the ravages of the civil war raging ever closer to their home. With only what they can carry on their backs, Rama and her mother, father, grandfather and brother, Sami, set out to walk to freedom in Europe. Nizar Ali Badr’s stunning stone images illustrate the story.

This is my favorite kind of freestyle poetry I write best about. I put my best into each and every single poem I write for everyone of my books . I begin my days of writing poetry about nature back in Alabama which I started to write poems from 1978-88 and it was there and then I knew I had a certain feel to write poetry about the bauty and nature even the seasons of the breath taking beauty of Alabama the way I seen it. Poetry seemed to come alive in me. And of course other years along I just wrote periodically and kept collecting poems. In 1988 I wrote my first manuscript titled Best Loved Poems of Alabama Collections which I registered first with the Library of Congress and in this particular manuscript I Have many poems about nature of which many I have yet to have published.
