Housewives Can Change the World

What is this key? How and why did I get it, anyway? What is it used for? My story started long before I became a housewife. Since a very young age, I have seen God at work preparing me for "such a time as this." Though I didn't know God until I was twenty-one years old, He knew me from my mother's womb, and He had a plan for my life. Satan had a plan too, but "greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world." I am grateful God came to earth through His Son Jesus Christ to save and call people like me. We are saved by what Jesus did on the cross and not by what we do. Therefore, there is no pressure to perform. Because God shows no favoritism we are also free from jealousy, envy and strife. The good news is that this is for everyone! We are all free to hear His voice! We are all free to obey! He gave all of us the keys of the Kingdom when we got saved. SO WHY THIS ONE KEY?

We Were Going to Change the World

The punk rock scene of the 1970s and ’80s in Southern California is widely acknowledged as one of the most vibrant, creative periods in all of rock and roll history. And while many books have covered the artists who contributed to the music of that era, none have exclusively focused on the vitality and influence of the women who played such a crucial role in this incredibly dynamic and instrumental movement. We Were Going to Change the World captures the stories of women who were active in the SoCal punk rock scene during this historic time, adding an important voice to its cultural and musical record. Through exclusive interviews with musicians, journalists, photographers, and fans, Stacy Russo has captured the essence of why these women were drawn to punk rock, what they witnessed, and how their involvement in this empowering scene ended up influencing the rest of their lives. From such hugely influential musicians and performers as Exene Cervenka, Alice Bag, Kira, Phranc, Johanna Went, Teresa Covarrubias, and Jennifer Precious Finch, to such highly regarded journalists, DJs, and photographers as Ann Summa, Jenny Lens, Kristine McKenna, Pleasant Gehman, and Stella, to the fans and scenesters who supported the bands and added so much color and energy to the scene, We Were Going to Change the World is an important oral history of the crucial contributions women injected into the Southern California punk rock scene of the 1970s and ’80s. Empowering, touching, and informative, Stacy Russo’s collection of interviews adds a whole new dimension to the literature of both punk rock and women’s studies.

To Change the World

In To Change the World, the legendary writer and poet Margaret Randall chronicles her decade in Cuba from 1969 to 1980. Both a highly personal memoir and an examination of the revolution's great achievements and painful mistakes, the book paints a portrait of the island during a difficult, dramatic, and exciting time. Randall gives readers an inside look at her children's education, the process through which new law was enacted, the ins and outs of healthcare, employment, internationalism, culture, and ordinary people's lives. She explores issues of censorship and repression, describing how Cuban writers and artists faced them. She recounts one of the country's last beauty pageants, shows us a night of People's Court, and takes us with her when she shops for her family's food rations. Key figures of the revolution appear throughout, and Randall reveals aspects of their lives never before seen. More than fifty black and white photographs, most by the author, add depth and richness to this astute and illuminating memoir. Written with a poet's ear, depicted with a photographer's eye, and filled with a feminist vision, To Change the Worldùneither an apology nor gratuitous attackùadds immensely to the existing literature on revolutionary Cuba.

Remembering Our Oneness

In his previous metaphysical book, Trying to Remember, Dr. Thomas Paul Hansen explored this question and statement: “Are you a spiritual being having a physical experience or a physical being having an occasional spiritual experience? Which one you believe makes all the difference in the world.” In his new book, Remembering Our Oneness, learn how to live as the spiritual being that you are, even while experiencing this illusion of a physical universe. Learn how to be in this world, but not of this world. Learn how to co-create a world of peace that will help all of us awaken to our true Godself nature. We can take concrete action for peace in the world and at the same time remember that our true spiritual nature is already inside each one of us. Did we actually make this physical universe ourselves, with our minds? Why would we have done so? Find out why the old “seeing is believing” concept should be changed to “believing is seeing.”

Secrets of the Most Holy Place  Vol  2

Heaven is my destination, but it is not my destiny. Many will reach their destination, but few will achieve their destiny. Prophetic parable matures into prophetic reality as His presence draws us into the realm of 'all God.' Here, what we believe becomes what we experience and what we know becomes flesh in mere mortal man. When we leave Egypt, we leave the bondage we hate, but when we leave the wilderness, we must leave the sin we crave. But He will not condemn what He has redeemed. His Blood covers us until His Power delivers us. This book is not for the casual reader. It is for those who hunger, not for education, but for reality; not for religion, but for Him. The world awaits the love of a people who know they are forgiven.

Life is about acceptance and patience. We are all going to meet hardship and bumpy roads, so to overcome everything, we should first believe in ourselves and learn to love ourselves.
